A landmark in Douglas…. have been going to K.C.'s for years. My extended family lives in Douglas and I visit 2-3 times per year and have takeaway from K.C.'s every Friday. The food and experience is fantastic every time. An old fashioned takeaway chipper. Try the potato cakes, chips, etc…. the best you will ever have….

So yum. ! Can't believe I was in cork 4 years before trying this. So lovely and quick service . I like the extensive menu and the unique recipes . So worth the queue and if you get there early the queue isn't that bad.

Literally the best fast food in Cork, never quite was a fan of the famous Creole (just dont think chips belong in a sandwich!) but love the white leghorn and rhode island red. Portions are generous and always filled to the brim. Queues are never as bad as others have made them out to be, never had to wait more... More

When I first moved to Cork and being a foodie, I always asked for recommendations from everyone and KC's and the queue cam were always mentioned. Finally got to try it after about a year of recommendations, with Alex. Will definitely be returning but decided to start my KC's adventure with a King Creole and chips. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Nuf said 😊

Just not everyones cup of tea I guess and I this queing for an hour for food sort of defeats the purpose of fast food service .. especially if it is raining and your soaked getting into car

I vaguely remember eating here when I was about 8, almost 20 years ago now! It seems now to be extremely popular and held in very high regard by all. My girlfriend and I decided to go and check it out the other day. We got there at about 6pm and joined the queue which was stretching out the door... More

One of the best chippies around! Great choice and great value! The queues outside this place every evening speaks for itself! Already a regular for locals and an absolute must for tourists!!

It's quality scrumptious food, fantastic variety! The queue is more often than not very long, however with their efficient service you'll still have your food quickly.
