Hello Tom H,
Thank you for taking the time to post a review.
We do good fresh seafood and i am glad you can see it for what it is,Haddock is quite under rated species and a very good alternative to Cod,Hake is also quite good.
I hope we see you again.
Regards,
Liam.

“Tasty Fresh Fish”
Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner in Quinlans while in Killarney for St Patrick's weekend, we ordered the cod & John Dory, both served with chips. Huge portions and delicious! I Highly recommend this place, staff very nice and quick service. Price is very reasonable for fresh fish. We'll be back when we return to Killarney.

Hello carolinesCorkIreland,
Thank you for your review.This weekend gone was especially busy in Killarney Irelands tourist capital.
We were lucky that we had a range of fantastic fresh seafood such as John Dorey,Turbot and Brill as the inshore vessels are fishing well at present.
Thank you also for the kind words about our staff who are THE BEST IN KILLARNEY.

Liam.

Hello PatMac1985,
Thank you for your review.
Yes we are proud of both the quality of our food and the calibre of our staff.
This time of year our smaller vessels are only returning to fish Crab and Lobster so it will be another three to four weeks before we have local irish lobster available.
Regards,
Liam.
