Went to Murphy's with my son for dinner. We had a burger and the cottage pie. Service was good and would recommend the cottage pie.

We were going to go to another local pub, but they were rude so we decided to go to Murphy's because it was across the street from our hotel. It was a hidden gem, the food was delicious and not badly priced at all.

....Cottage pie in ireland. And the stuffed chicken was fantastic. We love the small Pub atmosphere as well . No live music while we were here, but the Irish music piped-in was true to form

Stopped here for lunch and a "pint" and enjoyed a surprise bachelor tradition. The bridegroom has to dress in a strange costume and buy rounds for all his mates! We had delicious pizza and enjoyed the pub.
