As always great fish n chips. Fish this time a little heavy on the batter and a bit too brown but the fish inside was perfect and the chips to die for.

The food is really good, but there is not a lot of space to eat it. It was our first fish&chips and it was one of the best we've ever tasted!!! Perfect service!

Returning to Kenmare in the early evening, I was happy to see Wharton’s finally open. I’d heard it was the best fish and chips in Ireland. Of course, I assumed it was a regular restaurant. Surprisingly, there was Wharton’s, a trailer alongside the park. We put in our orders and grabbed some drinks. Once our boxes were ready, we found... More

If you're looking for a quick and super delicious bite of fried fish and chips, look no further. Parked outside in the small town of Kenmare, this truck offers a variety of street food from Burgers to Fish. My mates and I ordered 1 order of the fried Cod with chips, as a friendly recommendation from the owner, and we... More

"Kenmare, in Co Kerry, has its unfair share of places to eat, but you'll miss one of its finest attractions if you confine yourself to the restaurants that feature in guide books.

Wharton's Traditional Fish & Chips, in the town centre, is a gem. My cod was encased in the finest, lightest batter, into which crushed black peppercorns had been incorporated. It was so fresh I swear I saw it twitch as it hit the oil. The chips are hand-cut from potatoes that are, amazingly, chosen for their "fryability". And they have cider vinegar if you fancy a change from the stuff you usually get in chippers..." Tom Doorley (Irish Times)
