This seemed like a very popular place so was looking forward to checking it out. The service was good, and the waitress gave us lots of information. The set up is quite casual, which is fine. The food was very nice, not gourmet, but good quality fish n chips. However, it's expensive considering its probably on par with a few... More

Had a fish and chips meal on good Friday, the place was packed with a queue that took hours to clear. The food was very good and reasonably priced, the staff friendly and a good atmosphere despite it being very busy. If fish is your fancy then I would recommend this place to anyone.

We visted Qc's in the Ring and were told these are all owned by the same person. This place has the BEST FISH AND CHIPS! It's constantly crowded so you may have to wait for a seat. We were lucky to catch it on a Tuesday Night when there wasn't many tourist visting. We had the luxury of speaking with... More

We ate here after a long and tiring (though delightful) day of touring. These were the BEST fish & chips I have ever had! We each chose a different fish (haddock & cod) and they were perfect. Light and super crispy batter and the fish was moist & tender. I wish I could go there right now for more!

Hello Michele C, Thank you for your review. Although Cod and Haddock are always popular,Hake has now become very popular and is one of the most sustainable species here in Ireland,you might consider it on a future visit. Regards, Liam. More
