Murph’s Tavern, East Ferry

While exploring East Cork recently, we stumbled across Murph’s Tavern in East Ferry. A gem nestled in the heart of the beautiful East Point, about 15 minutes from Midleton. The drive down to Murphs Bar will just take your breath away. East Ferry is nestled in the woods and surrounded by wonderful coastal woodlands. A charming spot to walk, cycle or even to sit and enjoy the view.


East Ferry History: East Ferry is situated at the East Passage in Cork Harbour. It is here that the second of two ferries operating between Great Island and the mainland was located many years ago. To overcome the strong current in the East Passage, the ferry ran on cables. Although the ferry was destroyed in a storm, the pier and old metal ends are evident at East Ferry to this day.

We were lucky enough to end our day exploring East Cork with a delicious tasty meal in this gem. We sat outside in the sunshine, enjoying the scenery all around. What a gem. What we loved about this spot was the menu reflected the location. Featuring fresh fish, local produce and a menu perfect for families or anybody looking for good food with a very relaxed seaside setting. We loved that the menu showcased the ingredients from local food producers in the area. Sitting out enjoying the sunshine with a view, we just had to order the traditional fish and chips. What better way to spend a sunny afternoon? Eating a tasty meal looking out over the sea… pure bliss.

It sure was A FERRY GOOD DAY!!
