We decided to visit Murphy’s Ice Cream located on Wicklow Street to see what all of the hype was about.

The Warm Welcome

The Wicklow Street parlor, nestled in the heart of Dublin, you’re welcomed with a charming ambiance and the irresistible aroma of freshly made waffle cones. The staff’s warm and friendly demeanor was extremely inviting and refreshing. The staff that served me let me try multiple flavors until I knew which I wanted and also told me their personal favorites. Interactive staff is always a good sign within a business.

Delving into the Flavours

The ice cream itself is a creamy masterpiece, with a texture that is both indulgent and satisfying. Whether you opt for a classic flavor or a unique Irish blend, each bite is a journey through the diverse and rich tastes of Ireland.

Appreciating the Craft

I chose the Irish Brown Bread and Kieran’s Cookie’s flavors of Ice Cream. For a small with two scoops it was €6 which is pricey for ice cream but it is for sure worth it. Murphy’s Ice cream puts time and effort into their flavors, so that does come with a cost.

The Aesthetics

The layout of the shop is very aesthetically pleasing with Murphy’s theme colors, blue & white all over the ice cream shop and a small area for seating. The shop was also minimalist and very clean.
