“Tasty and Friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

We had heard about Murphy's in another part of Ireland and we weren't disappointed. The young staff was very friendly and offer free tastes straight away. Their ice cream is great, so don't miss it on a hot day.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

This ice cream is so good, even if its cold outside just order a hot chocolate . They give you lots of attention here and everything is so fresh and unique. I believe I got some sort of soda bread ice cream. It was too good. I enjoyed every bite : )

“A Must in Dingle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

OK, it's just an ice cream shop. But it is an ice cream shop in Dingle Ireland. Great ice cream in a perfect vacation location.

“See what freshness tastes like”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

Ice cream that is top quality and has fresh, clean flavors. They make old favorites and unique, unusual and totally incredible flavors. Want to taste something? They are generous with the tastes. (If they have 'gin', try it!)

This is premium ice cream so is a little pricey compared to others. But it's shown in their fresh, clean flavors and top quality ingredients. And check out their support of the Kerry Cows - a breed that was disappearing, but since Murphy's only uses their milk, is coming back as a heritage breed. What's not to like about this place?
PS - they have a store in Dublin too. We wish we had one in our home town, although I'd probably look like a Kerry Cow as I'd eat this stuff every day. (-:

“Dynamic Duo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

I have visited Dingle many times and always head to Murphy's for my ice cream fix. As usual there were several new flavors to try-- Sea Salt and Toasted Oats are winners. I do miss the Brown Bread but there was a petition being circulated to bring it back. However I feel the stars of the show are the delightful young staff. Energetic from opening to closing time they make you feel as though you are a long lost cousin returning home. Their customer service skills bring me back to Murphy's twice a day on each visit.
