Description: "Kenmare, in Co Kerry, has its unfair share of places to eat, but you'll miss one of its finest attractions if you confine yourself to the restaurants that feature in guide books. Wharton's Traditional Fish & Chips, in the town centre, is a gem. My cod was encased in the finest, lightest batter, into which crushed black peppercorns had been incorporated. It was so fresh I swear I saw it twitch as it hit the oil. The chips are hand-cut from potatoes that are, amazingly, chosen for their "fryability". And they have cider vinegar if you fancy a change from the stuff you usually get in chippers..." Tom Doorley (Irish Times)

Best chip shop we have found since moving to Ireland! Great service and reasonably priced. Huge portions and great banter.

Excellent fish & chips shop behind one of the prettiest facades in Kenmare. Clean and pleasant with a seating area upstairs (which we've never used though, so I can't share an opinion about that). Friendly staff, delicious fish and even their hamburgers are good - can't say that about all fish & chips shops. Prices may be slightly higher than elsewhere, but the euro extra is worth it. Be warned, portions are HUGE.
