“Everything you'd expect from an Irish Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

A warren of little rooms and a saloon bar lead on to a beer garden and then a back room where impromptu fiddlers are gathered. What a treat, we were jam packed with locals and visiting musicians and everyone talked to everyone. The bar staff were vocal and friendly and there was a terrific atmosphere in the place. We left late but will return!

“A rare auld time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Lovely old bar in central Bantry town. Good Guinness, beer and friendly service. Also sells sweets and groceries. Bar has many cosy corners. I cannot recommend this pub enough.

“Treated like one of the Family!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

Being a regular at Ma Murphy's for some years now, I have never experienced hospitality like this. Welcoming, like a long lost family member every time, whether it be Mary, Sean or the delightful Bill!

A destination for tourists & loved by locals. Can't beat it!

“What a place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

A proper pub, friendly staff with a nice range of drinks. Folk club welcomed strangers like lost relatives. The ridge in the selling out shop is 72 years old - amazing place.
