I saw this rated highly so when we arrived in ma Murphy’s we were expecting it to be good we walked in and straight out again it was from another century and needs to be modernized

Great little bar in the centre of Bantry well worth visiting for a drink of two. Friendly environment that encourages patrons to engage in conversation: locals and visitors alike.

Popped in here for some liquid refreshment with the 3 kids whilst touring around West Cork. Not too many of these kind of pubs left unfortunately, it takes you back to a different time when the pub was the centre of activities in a town...More

This is a pub with a difference because it is a shop as well. Great atmosphere here and a must if you are visiting Bantry or its environs.

Had spent the day sailing and rowing and went to enjoy a drink with a few friends. What a find. Something for everyone and even took a picture with the 70 year old fridge. At the front of the bar, good company and friendly service....More
