We loved this place about a five minute walk from a couple of places to eat. It felt very much in the country with cows in the pasture in front of the house. Totally charming.

Friendly and Homely
I have stayed at Murphys Farm House a couple of years ago and I found it much improved. It is good value and the breakfast had a good range of choice along with the Full Irish. It is well situated for touring the various peninsulas like The Dingle and Kerry Ring and with a Pub Resturant doing good food down at the bottom of the road. The Wifi was also good.

Farm house was like stepping back in time, clean, very well maintained. Absolutely lovely experience. Mary greeted us upon arrival. Later she placed fresh flower arrangements in common areas. Her daughter in law whom we met at breakfast was friendly and provided great service

OK but no host interaction
We just got home from 5 weeks in Ireland, England and Scotland. Stayed at several B&Bs on our trip and had such a wonderful time meeting our hosts at every place except this one. For us, the personal interactions and laughs absolutely made our stays perfect. However, when we checked in here, we were shown to our room, handed a key and that was it - all within about 30 seconds. By the end of breakfast the next morning, still no one had made an appearance. I actually had to find someone in the kitchen to take our payment before we left in the morning. The room was very clean and comfortable, but we really missed the personal experience.

The Murphy’s guesthouse was superb! The house sits on a beautiful property and it pretty in itself. The room was so clean and the beds were comfortable. A gem of a stay!

Fantastic hospitality! Had a horrible mix up with a broken down car but Mrs Murphy was understanding accommodating our changing arrival times. Beautifully decorated rooms with modern bathroom, comfortable beds. Fantastic Irish breakfast to get us going the next day. Highly recommended!
