The fish cakes were delicious! They came with a lovely salad and of course I had to get a side of chips. Friendly staff, very good value, a great spot for locals and tourists alike.

Fresh fish in a top restaurant in the middle of Killarney. Prices are reasonable and service is superb. Quality of seafood bears no equal in Killarney.

Coming to Quinlan’s isn’t about the quaint Irish pub experience which is so important to most travelers to Ireland. But any foodie coming to Ireland needs to have dinner here - it’s the freshest seafood you will ever have!

I read several reviews on Quinlans. Most were positive so I gave it a try. I ordered Fish and chips. It was good but lacked any extra sparks of flavor. Big portions also.
