Murphy’s extends an open invitation to all TBEX speakers and delegates

TBEX hits Killarney during the first week in October 2017 and as excitement mounts many locals may be wondering what precisely TBEX is? Here’s what Fáilte Ireland says:

Kerry recently won the bid to host the prestigious and influential social media conference TBEX Europe 2017. This event will attract more than 650 delegates from all over the world; with travel bloggers, writers, new media content creators, and social media- savvy travel industry professionals all descending on Kerry. These top social influencers have an online output which reaches an audience of over 300m.
The conference will take place from 3rd- 5th October, 2017 at Killarney Convention Centre. The delegates will be participating in familiarisation trips around the County and will be staying in Killarney.


At Murphy’s Bar we have already been reaching out to these visitors on social media and are looking forward to meeting them all in person.



Have a look at our guest dancer here, Anne-Marie Nelligan, dancing the brush dance at Murphy’s. This is a traditional dance that always gets the toes tapping and the hands clapping.    




In an interview live on Facbook Seán Murphy extended a warm welcome to all the TBEX speakers and delegates.  




In the interview Seán describes ‘the craic’ and you can get a sample of that by watching the first video above. He also speaks about the food menu at Murphy’s Bar and how his mother pioneered that idea in the late 1960s and early 70’s. Seán suggests the TBEX visitors to try our Irish Stew which uses local Ring of Kerry Lamb, or our Mussels from Cromane served with brown bread or else our Beef and Guinness casserole.

During TBEX there are two specials available in the bar with your TBEX lanyard:

•  Whiskey Tasting No 1 for €10

•  Murphy’s Burger & a pint of choice or a glass of wine €15    

Murphy’s is three experiences at one location. There is also the superbly located Murphy’s Guesthouse and of course the very elegant Lord Kenmare’s Restaurant. Lord Kenmare’s is offering a dining special to TBEX delegates:

•  €23.50 for two courses or  

•  €27.50 for 3 courses  

This includes a complimentary glass of wine.    

Our signature dish in Lord Kenmare’s is the Seafood Platter which is a firm favourite with both locals and visitors.

During TBEX Murphy’s is running a hashtag #TBEXatMurphys and we’re encouraging speakers and delegates to use it when posting on social media when you’re visiting either Lord Kenmare’s, Murphy’s Bar or Murphy’s Guesthouse.



Seán’s parting words in the interview to TBEX attendees, if you’re in the building ‘ask for Seán’. He’d love to chat if he’s around!
