Good food, great value, staff take five or six sometimes more, orders at the same time, how they remember them is amazing, good banter with the customers very welcoming. Try this Jackie deluxe, but the fish is lovely with peas and complimentary lemon and tartare sauce. Children love thee free chips while waiting and the nuggets are chicken not frozen... More

Best chip shop ever! Fantastic food, good prices, worth the walk. Fantastic staff. Have been going here for years and amazed at how it all works. No need to elevate good food with fancy titles.

No visit to Cork is complete in my opinion without tasting Lennox's chips. The shop on the Bandon Rd is tucked away behind the route from St. Finbarre's cathedral and UCC, but everyone knows Lennox's so you just have to ask for directions. I had the best chips I think I've ever tasted one evening last Summer after a visit... More

We stumbled upon Jackie Lennox's while looking for a place for fish and chips that was not a bar as we had children in tow. The fish and chips were excellent (haddock was the fish of the day.) There isn't an over abundance of seating however both times we visited we were able to find a seat inside without a... More

Actually, Jackie Lennox's is more than fish & chips. He puts chips with burgers, chicken, and barbeque. There were long lines, but the service was quick and most folks took their purchase with them as take away is Jackie's business model. We had fish and the tasty haddock was large, well-battered, and properly deep fried in clean oil. We each... More

On a recent visit to Jackie Lennox's take away as usual the food was scrumptious and tasty. I always have the battered fish and chips with peas and its delicious. The hand cut chips are fantastic. It is a Cork institution. I try and go back when I can and it has never dissappointed me yet. The staff are efficient... More
