Met Oisin and he asked us to come back in 20 mins, true to his word he got a table for us. Our waitress was nonchalant but Dave stepped in and got 10 stars from our young man. Food was absolutely perfect and atmosphere was great. Leaving Cert students kept us entertained. I would have turned down the music, I felt it was very loud for a restaurant style bar - would definitely return if Oisin would find a table for us again

Had lunch here yesterday - first time back in almost two years and delighted to see it was every bit as good if not better than last time. Food & service was 2nd to none. We will be back and have no problem recommending Murphy's Bar to anyone.

Excellent experience, we walked up and didn't have a reservation as our other dinner plans fell through. We were looking for an indoor table as we were vaccinated and it had been raining earlier, they only had 1 table left outdoors which we were happy to take given the arrival with no booking.

After we sat down our server came out and ask were we vaccinated, then to follow him as a table just opened up. We were thrilled that this request was accommodated so quickly. All the servers were friendly, witty and looked after us. Food was gorgeous, nice portion sizes and timed well between courses. Lovely atmosphere about the restaurant too, rustic vibe with the decorations and lighting. No issues at all, perfect experience

Fabulous experience from start to finish. The food was delicious, service was amazing and atmosphere was lovely. Very thorough with covid regulations which makes you feel safe. I had the lasagne and it was divine. The service was very good, in particular Dave went above and beyond. Definitely a must try!

We had great craic with Oisin and the owner (didn't catch his name), and they really made the night for us. There was 15 of us (kids incl), out for a birthday meal and wanted to get one more drink in before returning to the campsite. We were pretty much laughed at everywhere else we tried, but the moment we met Oisin he not only had us laughing right away, but he got to work, with other colleagues, to get am area set up for us. We really appreciated this and we'll be sure to return next year. Thanks guys!!!
