It's a busy little place, but even if there's a line outside the door it's well worth the (short) wait. Fabulous fish 'n chips, generous portions, fast but friendly service. Quinlans has its own fishing sources and warehouses (you can see it on the way to Valentia Island) and the quality shines through.

When we first came by this place there was a really long queue so we decided to find something else, but then we returned and got really lucky because we got a table almost immediately and what a good choice it was to return! I had fish and chips with mushy peas and it was delicious, freshly made and quickly... More

This is a small sit down restraunt on the Main Street of Killarney but it has the best seafood that I have had in years. So much so that we went back twice in two days. The fish is fresh and cooked to perfection. The staff, while rushed to keep up with orders are amazingly efficient and friendly. If there... More

We stopped by on a recommendation and the food certainly is good, fresh and fast. Salmon fillet was perfect, just the right texture and came with a filling salad. My boyfriend had Whiting and chips which was equally good. The place itself has tasteful fishing themed decor and is bright and busy; this did, unfortunately, mean we had to be... More

An excellent place to eat if you're on the go and looking for a nice bit of fish to finish the day off or for lunchtime grub. It is extremely tasty and you won't leave hungry. Make no mistake however it is fast food, very good fast food but fast food none the less. Fish and chips Irish style! I... More

We went to Quinlen's twice during our stay in Killarney and it did not disappoint. Great traditional fish and chips but with hand cut chips and fresh, local seafood. The sautéed salmon and sea bass were wonderful and I was very happy they came with a salad rather than chips - good as they are. They also have a kids... More
