ring of kerry

Murphy’s Bar is at the heart of Killarney for over 60 years and that’s both figuratively and literally! Throughout the years we have played host to some of Killarney’s most memorable moments in sport, music, culture, festivals and celebrations and the summer of 2016 is not going to disappoint either with an amazing line-up of events.

The Ring of Kerry Cycle takes place on the 2nd of July and is now in its 33rd year. This year here in Killarney we are set to welcome over 11,000 leisure cyclists who to date have fundraised over €10.2 million for Kerry Charities. The spectacular 112 mile race on the Ring of Kerry is a great event for participants, supporters and their friends and family every year. We are here to welcome you and your weary legs throughout the weekend, drop in for a well-deserved drink, enjoy a meal in the bar or join us for dinner in Lord Kenmare’s.

Munster Final

On the 3rd of July Fitzgerald Stadium, Killarney proudly plays host to the Munster Senior Football Final between the home county of Kerry and the premier county of Tipperary. So if you are “Up” or “Down for the match” allow us here in Murphy’s Bar to welcome you. As one of Killarney’s greatest sporting bars throughout the years we have enjoyed welcoming so many local and visiting counties who have chosen Murphy’s Bar as their meeting point or sharing with us the infamous post-match analysis. Great banter, great craic and great heart always served here in Murphy’s.
