Tucked away on New Street in Killarney Quinlans Seafood Bar may be one of the most satisfying dining experiences around. Quinlan's is unique in Ireland as it serves Fresh Fish and Shellfish from its own boats, landed daily in County Kerry. Quinlan's Killarney and Quinlans Tralee) tempt diners with fresh seasonal fish and seafood in a casually elegant setting. Fresh Hake, Cod, Haddock, Whiting and Plaice,from Dingle bay are available throughout the year and each day a range of specials depending on what and has been landed that morning is available. If you love your seafood you must visit us to sample the best and freshest Fish and Chips, shellfish specials and 'the catch of the day'. We also do take away (order by phone) and courier delivery of smoked salmon and fresh fish (from our website). All trip advisor customers can avail of specials by quoting the TRIPADVOR1 voucher code.

Having been to Killarney, we have walked past Quinlans tons, but never stopped. Glad that we did on our last trip. It was delicious and we'll return next time we vacation in town.

Fish and chips at its best. Later in the evening there is always a queue outside which is why we had to try it and we were so glad we did. Get there early like we did and you can get straight in.

We shared the salmon/chips and the sea bass /salad. The kids had the haddock and the goujon and we shared some mega size onion rings for the fun!

Well, well, well. My partner and I headed here today for lunch and wanted to find something to fault so as to get a witty reposte from the owner as indicated by some of the terrible reviews.
