Murphy‘s Bar offers traditional Irish dishes and a nice variety of drinks. Personally, we enjoyed the stuffed Kerry lamb and the Killarney lager. The staff is very motivated and manages serving food and drinks quickly even if it starts to get busy.

Friendly atmosphere and great music. Just what a visitor would want from an Irish pub! Impromptu dance and friendly bartender. even offered a tasting of local brews. Can't get friendlier than that!

Popped in with my mom for dinner after a day of driving. Excellent food and quick service. A locals and tourist spot with the best Irish stew I’ve ever had. Wait for a table to clear while having a glass or pint at the bar.

The service here is excellent and they have a live band later at night. The food was delicious and hit the spot for whatever Irish pub food craving you may have.
