We visited Quinlan's in Kenmare last week.It was recommended to us by few friends.Friendly and smiling server Rachel was very helpful and professional.The place was busy but we did not wait more then 15 minutes for our lovely fish and chips.Oh and that salad and tartar sauce and mushy peas!! Excellent value for amazing food.Modern and ellegant new place, it deserve to succeed.We will be back.

We were on a tour of kerry and stopped at this restaurant for fish n' chips. We have eaten fish n' chips in Waterford, Dublin, and London, but we had never seen Hake on the menu. The choice has always been between cod and haddock. On the recommendation of our waitress, we decided to try hake, and are very glad we did. It was among the best -- if not the best -- fish n' chips we have ever had.

Keep it up.

What a terrible experience it was to eat at Quinlan's. The service was terrible. We waited for ever to be served and then waited even longer for the food to arrive. My fish and chips were just okay; the fish was good but the chips were not. Another person's fish was totally overcooked and to make matters worse, 2 members of our party of 5 never even got any food!!!! I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone!

Sorry to hear about your experience. We do remember your visit. We admitted to our error and did our best
to make up for it by not charging for any of your food on the day. It was an error on our behalf, but it was a new staff member

As a regular customer to Quinlan’s in Killarney, I was deeply disappointed with the Kenmare restaurant. There was a noticeable difference in the quantity and quality of food on the day. In trusting that all their food was cooked correctly we had cod and chips. We received far less chips than normal, and the cod wasn’t very appealing. Over priced for what we got. We both received food poising hours after our visit. Very disappointing as we are regulars to the Killarney restaurant. We will not be back.
