This is the nicest bar in Bantry. Was here recently, and went to 4 pubs before we found Ma Murphy's. There was no need to go anywhere else after. Great service and a lovely pint of Guinness.

Like stepping back 40 years (in a good way). Real nice feel of an old fashioned Irish bar, and does a nice pint to boot.

Nice pub, inside the front door is either the snug or a shop. Inside the next door was the main bar, old fashioned had'nt been updated in donkeys years. The guy with me was thrilled with it. The bar staff were welcoming but could do with some more skills. You hold the glass at all times when you are pouring... More

This is one of the old type bars with a shop in front and the bar at the rear. Toilets need to be upgraded and heating is a must. Staff very pleasant. Worth a visit when in Bantry.

Tiny lovely authentic pub. If you like close quarters, chatting with new people and choosing from about 15 different tap brews, this is the place. Mary was a wonderful, friendly host. We walked around the town and saw a sign down an alley, adventurous girlfriends that we are, we walked in the back. Wow, will never forget it. Go there...you'll... More

If you want a real, no nonsense pub, this is the one for you. Very traditional, dark, intimate and a real experience. I love bringing visitors here as it is exactly what you'd want in an Irish pub. There is a beer garden in the back and a shop at the front. Well worth a visit
