We were encouraged by friendly young men and women to taste whatever flavors we wished. I chose black currant sorbet, which had a robust tartness I was told came from Dingle black currents, lemon, and Irish rain. Others in my group tried vanilla and proclaimed...More

I tried the Dreamy Creamy Caramel. The best Ice cream I ever tasted. And very friendly employees. It is a bit expensive, but you get a really good taste.

After several samples of various flavors I decided on the Irish Coffee and Dingle Sea Salt. Husband chose Irish Coffee and Butterscotch. They were very accommodating in putting a lid over each of our dishes and providing a bag to carry back to our hotel.

What a delicious find! Many flavors, friendly service and such a nice way to cool off after shopping and touring. The honeycomb ice cream is my absolute favorite!

Some of the best ice cream I ever had. The very nice young lady will give you to taste as many of the unusual flavors as you like ( dingle gin or sea salt anyone? ). You are getting overwhelmed by the many delicious choices.

We stopped here after dinner one night while in Killarney. Sampled a few of the unique flavors and ended up ordering the Irish Coffee with Jameson flavor. It was very good.

On Main Street. Has about 10 - 12 flavors. Some dairy free. Sorbets as well. Ice cream is like US type with tilt to gelato. Prices are reasonable. They have dragged in two chairs otherwise stand or walk with your cup or sugar waffle cone.

Murphys makes all of its own ice cream from scratch in Co. Kerry, using milk from the rare Kerry Cow breed and hand-made craft. Murphys makes its own sea salt for their sea salt ice cream and even make their own chocolate chips. They also serve coffees and a delicious range of hot chocolates.
