Stopped in on our way back from Sliabh Liab. Chips were great, dry and crispy but unfortunately the battered cod was badly burnt, black in places. Also they gave us sachets of salt and vinegar instead of salting them in the bag, not what you typically expect in an Irish chipper. Staff were friendly.

Lovely clean chips. Big portions and good value for money. Ordered beforehand by phone to avoid delay when collecting takeaway.
