We waited a couple of minutes for a table and were so happy we did!! Our teenagers enjoyed the Cottage Pie with side of veggies... More

Had the burger which was bland and tasteless, a bit over priced for what you get. We also had bacon and brie sandwich which was truly awful. Think it was the bacon.

I ate here a few times 4 years ago when visiting Ireland, so had to check it out. It is just as enjoyable ws it Traditional Irish dishes and of course Guiness beer on tap. Food was great and so was the service and definitely a place to revisit.

Murphy's is a nice enough bar and the menu read much the same as every other bar in Killarney. When we arrived we saw a table being served irish stew and it looked good, but then again at nearly 15euro a pop it would need to. I was craving a burger, so I order the homemade burger and chips.
