My better half and I stopped in for dinner at Murphy's bar last night. The beef and Guinness stew was very good and comforting. The pints are cold and delicious. We enjoyed the authentic Irish atmosphere.

One of the best pubs we found in Ireland and we did extensive research. The staff and owner couldn't have been more friendly. The following day we ate dinner at Murphy's and it was delicious.More

While on an escorted tour, I found this restaurant provided good traditional Irish foods. The quality and portion size was quite adequate and fresh tasting. The restaurant was well situated within the city and convenient.

Definitely a good dining/entertainment option in Killarney. Very popular so make sure to make a reservation or get there before the music crowd fills the place.
