Great fish and chips

Fast and efficient service of fresh chipper food .. Expect long queues come evening time partly due to lack of good eating spots close by

Judging by the queue you could tell it was popular, but staff kept queue moving quickly. Really nice food. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Tramore!!

Simple food, well cooked. Excellent fish and very tasty chips. A little on the expensive side, but not by much. What more is there to say?

Have been going to dooley's for ten years now and over the years i think the chips have gotten steadily worse, food can be very greasy. Very disappointing of late, used to go a lot but not anymore.
