Have had 2 takeaways here recently and very impressed. Went for the deep fried chicken burger and taco fries and they travelled very well. Would definitely recommend and can't wait to go back and sit in!

The scampi is delicious! Make sure to try it! The staff are always so polite and cheerful as well, it's just a quaint little fish shop -I love it! It's defiantly a lot nicer than the famous Mc Donagh's! Price is good too!

Some of the tastiest food I experienced in Ireland. This fish and chips and seafood joint is a cut above the rest, serving up huge portions of VERY fresh fish in a casual setting. It resembles a fast food stand; it isn't exactly a restaurant...More
