Just dropped in for a quick snack at lunchtime and was sorry we weren't staying for dinner! The chowder and open shrimp platter were fresh and delicious. If you like seafood don't pass this restaurant.

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!!

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.
