Description: 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 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 is in season 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.

Went here twice during our stay First day, ordered from kids menu but kids ended up not liking their fish goujons/fish and chips ("too oily") and we ended up sharing our food with them - which they loved, by the way.

The fish and chips I had at Quinlans was the best I've ever had. I had fish and chips several times while I was in Ireland, and this was the best -- by far the largest portion and freshest. It was cooked perfectly. I had planned to get a "traditional" order of cod, but we were seated next to several... More

We went here for lunch and a quick dinner and both times the food was really, really good! Service is lovely and the atmosphere is casual. There's usually a line but because the tables turn quickly you don't have to wait long. Definitely highly recommend!!
