I ran across a photo from our 1st trip to Ireland in 06 that I decided to use here, as an avatar. I couldn't remember where the pub was, so I googled to find the location of "Dan Murphy's Bar" ...it happens to be west of Kenmare in Sneem on the Ring of Kerry.It is famous from the lines of a traditional Irish song, the "Stone outside of Dan Murphy's Bar"Those days in our heartsWe will cherishContented although we were poorAnd the songs that were sungIn the days we were youngOn the Stone outsideDan Murphy's doorIt was 10 AM, and the pub wasn't open yet when we were there. Since we are heading back to the southern half of Ireland at the end of the month, I would like to stop in during business hours. We were planning to do the Ring of Bearra this time, but may have to slip out of Kenmare for a short evening trip to check it out!If anyone out there knows of any other pubs with the name "Murphy" on them on our route: "Dublin, Kilkenny, Millstreet, Skiberrean, Kenmare, Limerick. Bunratty, Shannon" please let me know before March 25th! ThanksDan
