Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Very good food and huge portions. Our food was ready in about 10 minutes and the garlic dipping sauce was outstanding. Good value as well

What a gem situated at Killybegs harbour !! When you see a queue at any establishment it must be good. Greeted by 3 hardworking friendly staff...I ordered a mixed seafood & chips meal at €14 & Cod bites and chips at €12 omg what a...treat !! The food was simply delicious and so fresh. There is a seated area across the road where you can watch the world go by while savouring every bite !! Top Class !! 👏👏More

I was out for a stroll and to get some supplies and i could not resist the smell emanating from this kerbside shack. My diet was thrown on a back burner for a sea food box with haddock, cod goujons and calamari with chips. Chips...a little too crispy for my taste but the rest was delicious and very friendly serviceMore

Delicious fresh fish served right on Killybegs docks. I’m always nervous about fish bones but there were none to be found. We had a small wait but that time was easily filled with a walk around the boats. There is no seating but there is...a wall you could sit on if it was dry or there is a picnic bench a little up the way across from the petrol station.More

This restaurant is so inviting that people lineup for the food that purveyed from this small building. Most people pick up their meal in a box and take it to a nearby park to partake. You cannot go wrong with anything on their menu. They...were awarded a plaque earlier this year for offering up some of the best food in Ireland. Do not miss this restaurant. If it was located in the U.S., it certainly would be visited on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.More

I visited for the first time yesterday. The scampi was undercooked and rubbery. The prawns were not fresh. I come from Portavogie and this is the worst scampi I have ever tasted.

On bleak,stormy windswept day in Killybegs(just like any other day!)we opted not to try any of the depressing dine-in and choseto sit in the car with our lunch from the seafood shack. It 2as definitely the right decision...the tastiest ,freshest seafood cooked right in front...of our eyes by 2 young ladies who were pleasant and welcoming despite facing agale force winds all day. The scampi was amazing as was the calamari..all in all it even makes a trip to Killybegs worthwhile!More

Might be the best fish and chips in Ireland. Certainly the kindest, most generous and patient staff.

I always have problems with fried seafood (fish or shrimp) as they mostly fail on the texture and taste. Mostly they are too oily, too salty or bland. But, the fish and chips at this place were perfect for me, chewy and not too salty....The first time I came here, I had the calamari and then the other day I returned for the scampi. Both were perfect. I really enjoyed my lunch with the view at the seafood shack. I had to wait on my second visit as there were but of tourists waiting, but the waiting time was normal.More
