“Great Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2007

Stayed here just for one night and found the staff were very nice. When we checked in we were shown several rooms and asked which one we would prefer. The whole house was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent, choice of juices, cereals, yogurts, fruit and then a full Irish with toast and brown bread. Remember this is Murphy's B&B not Murphy's Pub B&B. It is next door, on the left of Murphy's Pub B&B. Overall great value would go back again.

As a group of three law students travelling the Dingle peninsula in June, we were absolutely shocked to walk into this B&B and have the owner not only great us warmly but show us a perfectly appointed triple room, for 30 euro pp! Our room looked out on the main road and further onto the harbour--absolutely lovely view. The bathroom was quite possibly the most posh B&B bathroom we'd ever seen--it was huge and even had a skylight! The owners were obviously very busy but were extremely professional, kind, and quite funny as well. There is a sweet little store just outside the front door of the B&B as well as an accompanying pub. I would highly recommend this B&B--it has remained our absolute favorite of the trip!

  • Liked — Location (close to the harbour) and value for the money
  • Disliked — Location (a bit of a walk from the centre of town)

Named after the one on his left, this B&B offers (the green one) a good stay at reasonable prices.
Located in Strand street, in the middle of dingle town, it's really close to the pubs, shops, bus eireann station etc.
So, the only negative (it could be so for someone) thing, is the bustle coming from the pubs downstairs, you could hear it until midnight comes.
It's the same for all the b&bs in main streets.
Rooms are clean, not so beautiful, but clean and spacious.
Hosts are warm: Siobhan is a very nice and hearty woman from Kerry.
She will give you advises about "where you can hire bikes" for the (MANDATORY) tour of the dingle area, about the best beaches around (maybe Slea Head) etc.
Full irish breakfast is served. She cookes it herself, and it's good.
So what can i say: give it a chance!

Murphy's B&B is the perfect base for exploring Dingle. Our room (a double) was spacious and clean, and breakfast was delicious. The proprietors were friendly and happy to give us ideas on where to eat, visit, etc. Of all the places we stayed while in Ireland, Murphy's was the least expensive, and probably our favorite. My only regret was that we only spent one day in Dingle and one night at Murphy's. We will definitely return!

Murphy's B & B is on the main road across from the tourist centre and
marina in Dingle Town - next door to but unrelated to the Pub. Very
convenient for exploring the town which has a shortage of parking. The
rooms are plain but clean with great showers, good breakfasts, friendly
staff. You can easily walk to one of the many fantastic
restaurants/pubs, stay late drinking Guiness and listening to music and
walk back to your room safely. Good rates.

Been to Ireland twice. Stayed from Carna to Kilkenny. Have found more scenic, more quiet, more comfortable, but none that were more fun.
A good Irish dinner followed by traditional Irish music,then upstairs to bed. Breakfast the next morning was one of the better ones we had.
We will go back.

Great place to stay in Dingle. The Murphys were very friendly and helpful - and the B&B is very conveniently located in the beautiful "city" of Dingle. We can't wait to go back!! Hopefully, soon!!
