Some days are just made for KC’s! This is a local and national treasure which has maintained its reputation and quality. The line can be long at peak times so expect to wait 20-30 minutes. There is no seating, take-away only!

Definetely the best chipper in cork by far. Its hard not to get the King Creole everytime as its just perfect, the other things on the menu are almost as good. The queues are always out the door but definetely worth the wait
