Amazing meal in Quinlan’s for a group of 6 people. Travelled from Dublin to climb Carrauntoohil and due to Covid were very limited with options for outdoor dining. Waited for a table to become free at Quinlans while at a pub two doors down. Manager...Steven was very accommodating and kept us updated on length of wait. Food was amazing. As a group of 6 we tried a number of options on the menu and agreed the best fish and chips we’d had in Ireland as well as calamari and fish cakes. Food was really fresh and service from Sandra and Zlatko was very efficient and friendly. Will be recommending to anyone I know visiting Killarney and will be first on our list to book ahead of our next visit.More

Good with gluten free. I had to have the pan fried fish instead of the battered and it wasn’t great. It was a tasteless. The chips were average. Might go back in the future if there was no other options.

Got the cod, chips, mushy peas & drink deal for €14.95 and it was delicious! Fish was super fresh and the mushy peas was grogeous

Staying down in Killarney we just fancied a bit of fish and chips after a day of travelling. Having read the reviews in Tripadvisor we thought “Quinlans will do for us”. We had a Cod and Chip and A Plaice and Chip. While the chips...were generous and fairly decent, both fish were absolutely tasteless and could have come from the whiting section of the local frozen food shop. They were also full of so much grease that we had to use the napkins provided to soak up as much grease as possible to make it even possible to eat it without ruining our clothes. I’m sorry folks, but either the people of Killarney wouldn’t know a good fish if someone slapped them on the face with it or we just happened to pick the worst time of the worst of the worst week. Their game really needs to improve.More

Fantastic to see one of Killarney's main attractions still in action over lock down. We called in advance and our order was ready by the time we arrived about 10 mins later. Fantastic chowder, fish and chips plus amazing mushy peas as per usual. Friendly...staff inside and hope to be back when they can reopen for dine-in.More
