Had fish and chips on Friday. Disappointing for the first time in ages. The fish wasn't seasoned so it tasted bland and it was very oily. It is also €2 more expensive per box. It won't make us stop going but it was a little...disappointing this time. It is still worth a visit.More

When the source for your fish is your own boat, 200 yards from your shop, you can’t be accused of it not being fresh! Cooked to perfection and served with a smile, the portions are always generous and guaranteed to melt in your mouth! Fish...suppers as they used to be! One word of warning! They are so popular you will queuing!!More

Plenty of fresh Clogherhead fish to choose from , prices are very fair , spotlessly clean facility and very covid conscious.

visited here after hearing a few people talk about the place, I like the idea of food trucks and because it was selling fish beside the pier I thought yes this place should be good. When it came to it I got fish and chips...my partner got chips they were uninspiring the chips were slightly undercooked the fish was average. Great spot great idea but sadly the execution wasn’t great.More

We came for the chowder but on a previous visit the locals had raved about the fish and chips - so I had the fish and chips instead when we saw the van was here and open. Fresh haddock done in feather light batter with...chips that you could actually taste potato in. Simple but very very tasty.More

Stumbled upon this fish and chips trailer and thought it would be much better considering the location. We expected a better variety of fish on the menu and more modern flavours. Similar trailers country wide have been better. Fish was tasty and fresh but it...would seem we got our chips on an off day.More

We enjoyed the sea side walk savouring the sunshine as we headed to the fisherman’s catch. It was an amazing day followed by a great fish & chips. A definite must if your in the area. Wow!!! Thank you 🙏

We were just driving the coast road south from Dundalk and thought the name "Port Oriel" sounded interesting. We wandered down to the port and found this fish and chip van parked by a fresh fish shop. The fish was freshly cooked while we waited,...it was extremely succulent in a light crispy batter - truly superb with perfectly cooked chips. Eating these whilst watching the seals, children fishing and the trawlers in the harbour was just idyllic.More

I would check their Facebook page for updates but they currently advertise Thur-Mon 12 noon to 8pm as their opening times. Hope this helps.
