The ice cream is delicious. The flavours are imaginitive and varied. The staff are enthusiastic. The clients enter with a smile on their faces laugh their way way through the ice cream and leave with a smug grin. They also make a proper espresso unlke many other establishments

What else is there to say. The ice cream is just so nice as is the hot chocolate! If you are ever in the area, this is a must!

Very tasty ice cream. Unique flavors - I had burnt caramel and sea salt. Tourist town prices.

Visited last week. Food was good, service was friendly. Prices are 'Outrageous'. 2 weak coffees, and 2 Waffles = Euro 20.20? How is this possible?

Loved the Dark Chocolate Ice Cream! Great location, friendly staff. A bit tight if you want to sit inside, but at least stop in for some great dessert. :)

We visited Murphy's in Killarney during a heavy downpour and it was an oasis of warmth and good cheer. The girl working there insisted on helping us get our buggy inside, opening the double doors and making us really feel welcome. Our two small children were welcomed warmly and I enjoyed the most magical hot chocolate I've ever tasted with... More

You cannot go to Dingle without a visit. Just great fun as well as good ice cream. It's like kissing the Blarney Stone only it tastes better.

Creamy and unusual, but fantastic! Strongly recommend the Baileys flavoured ice-cream, and the Brown Bread. Sounds odd, but it takes the sweetness of caramelised brown bread and creaminess of milk to make something quite magical and textured, just how you'd imagine. If you're not quite sure, they'll even give you a free taste. You'll be won over. Promise.

First time visiting this ice cream parlour with my wife and we both thought it was lovely. There is a great selection on offer and the quality of the ice cream is top notch. I had the whiskey chocolate and my wife had the chocolate, both were fab! My only quible is the high price, it cost €4 per cone... More
