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!!!!!

If you like fish this is by far the best place to eat in Killarney. Every time I go to Killarney I have to eat here at least once. The food is delicious and the staff are so friendly and helpful. It is a small restaurant but spotlessly clean and has a nice atmosphere. You often have to wait for... More

When looking for some place to eat on Sunday night and time moving on, found that some places don't open and some close early, we took a walk up the Main Street and came across Quinlans. This was a lot better that I would have thought and was pleasantly surprised with the quality and amount served. Thanks for the service... More

As with everywhere in Ireland, the staff is lovely, and incredibly patient. When dealing with two very complicated clients, the server patiently answered an endless stream of ridiculous questions.

The wonderful thing about Quinlan's in not just the locally sourced and outstandingly prepared fish, but also the charming staff. Try to go just before lunch or dinner times, because the people who are willing to wait are an indication of how great the fish is!

I have been to Quinlans quite a few times and the Fish is always fresh and beautifully fried in crispy batter, the chips are real chunky and tasty, excellent value for money. I can't recommend this restaurant strongly enough, guaranteed satisfaction. Very fairly priced too with great service. The last time I was there a queue of people lined up... More
