The Marrinan Bar
Busy croed outside Murphys bar


Steeped in history Murphys Public House is an imposing landmark premises fronting onto both the Market Square and Grattan street in Kilkee. In earlier times the market area was the busiest part of Kilkee and Murphys was both a pub and distribution centre for whiskey, Gin and of course Guinness.

As the Kilkee market declined in the early 1970’s the pub closed its doors for the final time until it was reawakened in 2016, retaining all its original character such as flagstone floors, open fires and traditional bar counter. There are regular organised and spontaneous music sessions all year round.
