The Murphys Ice Cream cafés are unusual in that they offer only coffees and ice cream; the overall range of flavours is very wide, and still growing, but many of them are seasonal so the whole range is never available at the same time

Murphys Ice Cream & Cafe

This cheerful blue and white fronted café in the centre of Killarney town was the first branch of the popular Murphys Ice Cream Dingle shop and café to be opened by Kieran and Séan Murphy, the American brothers who have made such a success of making ice cream with fresh Kerry milk and cream.


The Killarney shop and café shares all the freshness and charm of its Dingle parent, and the company also has a newer café in Dublin (Murphys Ice Cream Dublin) - and supplies a growing network of discerning restaurants and specialist outlets around the country.


The cafés are unusual in that they offer only coffees and ice cream; the overall range range of flavours is very wide, and still growing, but many of them are seasonal so the whole range is never available at the same time. They are scooped in time-honoured fashion from a freezer cabinet in the shop and available in little tubs to take away if you like; also milk shakes and and ice cream desserts (sundaes, banana split).


There’s also a Murphy’s Ice Cream Cake, the perfect party piece, and some of the Murphy’s own favourite chocolates.


* Kieran and Séan Murphy's lovely ‘Book of Sweet Things’ is available from the cafés and from bookshops.

Seats 25 (outdoors, 8). Open 7 days a week - high season, 11-10pm; low season, 11-6.30pm. Toilets wheelchair accessible; children welcome. No credit cards. abbreviations
