Visited over a 2 week period , yes there are queues but staff are always friendly, efficient. Good food. Nothing like chips with salt & vinegar and fresh sea air.

The much talked about Dooley's was a huge disappointment. Chps were tasteless and seemed to have been lying around for the day under heat. The fish was average and overall - priced WAY beyond what they are worth. I've had good dinners for what I paid for this.

Probably the most famous and busiest fish and chip shop in Tramore, especially in recent years, there's seldom a time you pass the place that there isn't a massive queue. The good news is that all those customers are not wrong - the food is tasty and the queue moves quickly. There's nothing like enjoying a fish and chip as... More

Dooleys is simply fantastic. You'll struggle to find better fast food and it really is better quality than most. Try the battered sausages, they're particularly nice but all the food is gorgeous

Handy to have so close to home. Have to admit I have a soft spot for their battered sausages. Chips can vary a bit, but if you get them when they are fresh out of the oil, they are yummy. I have rated 'average' as couldn't really stretch to 'very good'. Wish there was a 'good' rating between the two!

Had to join a long queue for our meal here. Its a chip shop that has fish and chips to die for. Well worth the wait. When visiting places its always a good idea to go where the locals go and this is the place. I would def go back if in this area on holiday again, Well done all.

Previously known as Cunninghams this is always a busy chipper. The chips are very nice. On the last visit I had the smoked haddock which was freshly cooked for me, which took a few minutes but was worth the wait. Looking for something smaller try the fish cakes or scampi ! Lots of meal deals also available.
