Loved it, choice of fresh fish for the day I opted for Hake (which I recommend!), Chips and Mushy peas.

Very enjoyable meal - the fish was absolutely great!

Service was good and speedy too!

This plaice (pun intended)! was recommended to me by a friend.
The battered wild cod was amazing and the tea was good and strong.
Plus it’s a place where a solo traveler can eat without feeling conspicuous
Yum!!

A taxi driver in Dublin recommended Quinlans knowing we were heading to Killarney in a few days. The fish and chips were the best we had in Ireland. They use a very light batter which only adds to the taste. Wish we had tried the calamari which looks fabulous. The onions rings were a little too greasy for our liking. Quinlans only serves seafood caught that day, so a few items weren't available. This is not a restaurant you will linger over for an hour or more, the food comes out quickly and so do the tables. Note: there is no alcohol served so don't expect to order a pint with your meal.

Visited Quinlan’s at the recommendation of our jaunting cart driver Patrick while visiting Killarney and it did not disappoint. We all had the fried haddock with chips and it was delicious! Appeared to be full of locals which is always a good sign.
