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.

Stumbled upon this while walking around a very wet and miserable Killarney- we were very impressed! Although kitted out like a traditional fish and chips place - this offered so much more than a piece of battered cod (although you get that if you want!) with a really good selection of scrumptious fresh fish, reasonably priced as well!

Looking for a sit down fish & chips dinner. Found this one wandering the streets of Killarney. Busy & popular, always a good sign. Service was quick & friendly, food was fresh & hot. Just what was needed after a long day in the rain. Prices reasonable, especially for a tourist area.

We visited on Thursday in February for dinner and enjoyed the special - pan fried brill and battered cod and chips with onion rings. The fish was so fresh and the onion rings were huge and crispy. Service was efficient. If you like your fish, this is the place to go. It's very bright and clean too.

We were seated and served by friendly and efficient staff in a spotlessly clean restaurant. The service was speedy and both the fish (cod) and chips were as good as we ever sampled. Certainly a venue for anyone who likes their fish and chips !!!!!

We live locally and Quinlan's is simply the best fish and chips in town, whether you eat in or out. The mere mention of fish and chips in our house and our young children will enthusiastically and in unison say QUINLAN'S!!

I believe I rated this already, but I'll do it again, just in case. The Salmon here was to die for. I absolutely enjoyed it. A must go for lunch or dinner. And, if you place your order online, you get 10% off.... DO IT!!! Worth every penny (Euro) though... Lol. Cheers!!!!!
