An institution on Barrack St. The original Lennox's. I was recently attending a very boring corporate event - my hubby arrived with Lennoxs at the close of the evening. Best treat I had in years. Their curried chips are just divine. Their fish and chips have been known to bring grown men to their knees

Amazing food with huge portions! This was the first place I ever tried fish and chips, and no restaurant has come close to matching Jackie Lennox's since then! A really nice family-run business with a great history. Friendly staff that contributes to the restaurant's welcoming atmosphere. Wouldn't choose any other place for fish and chips in Cork!

I'm surprised this isn't ranked higher in the trip advisor rankings. I highly recommend a trip to the best chipper in Cork and perhaps all of Ireland.

You'd want to be off your game not to go to Lennoxes if you're in the area. They serve the bona fide best chips in the world. That's a stone cold fact folks. The best ones. I've been living in the UK for a good few years and there are plenty of good chippys here, but there is nothing to... More

Great food- a Cork tradition. Even as veggies, they made us veggie burgers with fresh cut chips. Delicious!

Excuse the pun..... this place is legendary in Cork but I'd never visited before. Service was quick, portions were huge, fish was fresh and the chips were freshly cooked, and the prices reasonable. No complaints whatsoever.
