Went to killarney at the weekend noticed a queue right down the street people wanting to get in to this seafood bar .went back there the next day .I had the cod and chips with tartare sauce it was delicious the best battered cod I have ever had .a tad expensive at 11.95 but was worth every cent .

Pan fried wild caught salmon was fantastic and so reasonably priced. Every order I saw pass my table looked like something I would want to try.

We got lucky and hit Quinlans at a quite time so we didn't have to wait. But once you have eaten here you will know that even if you have to wait - it would be worth it. We both ordered the Cod & Chips with mushy peas. Wow is all I can say. There wasn't anything left on either... More

We had a free night in Killarney so based on TripAdvisor reviews, we thought we would try this restaurant. We got there at 6:30 and the line was already out the door. We both had the fish and chips. I had the cod and my wife had the hake which is a sweeter fish. We split a side salad and... More

- The atmosphere was good, clean restaurant - The fish n chips were VERY fresh but they were sitting in a pool of oil/grease on my plate. - A friend ordered the chowder and had to pick out the fish at the bottom because the soup tasted like sure melted butter.

Hello Bcsullivan3 Thanks for your review. Sorry to hear that there was some slight grease on your plate, we do obviously drain our fish and chips as much as possible but sometimes the batter holds the grease. We will look into your comments and will do our best to rectify. Regards Liam More
