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)

Ask for the fresh wild cod and chips, highly recommended. this is a basic fish and chip shop with seating upstairs, great food and well priced, very helpful staff , loads of smiles and friendliness. went back a second time.

Great Fish and Chips - some of the best I've ever had! One of the number one things I looked forward to on our trip to Ireland was Fish and Chips - and the meal that I ate at Wharton's was the best I had on the island. Very nice staff - great conversation and craic! Eat in and ask to sit upstairs. I can't recommend this place enough.

Great Fish and Chips.....would certainly recommend a visit. You order your food downstairs and seating is upstairs. Am sure this place offers take out too.
