We dined as a family of 5 recently. We all enjoyed a delicious meal. My girls 7, 8, and 10 all enjoyed the kids menu. The Mussels are delicious, at a minimum have the appetizer so you don't miss them. Be sure to book a table. They fill up and you would be hard pressed to get a table. oh... More

Stopped by here for lunch with my daughter's. Front of house and waitresses were very good. A good variety on the menu and the bowl of seafood chowder was delicious. Not particularly cheap but still highly recommended due to the quality of the food.

Excellent fish and a very welcoming staff on both our visits. It was hard to decide among the many enticing selections. Even the house wine selections were outstanding. Would love to return when we can sit outside but the interior is bright and comfortable.

We felt that this restaurant had not really decided what it was. It seemed that it had not entirely left its roots behind. I believe it started as a good fish and chip shop. Whilst the seafood was good, we have had better. We felt that the service was fairly perfunctory and there was hardly time to take a breath... More

Great location just off the waterfront. Very busy place so make sure to make a booking beforehand. Food was delicious and the wait staff were very happy to accommodate small requests like extra gravy, etc.

We had dinner in Fishy Fishy on Easter Sunday. It was very busy so we were lucky that we had booked a table in advance. The kids had proper, tasty fish and chips. We also had fish - no surprises there as there is an extensive menu - and it was all excellent. The staff were friendly and very efficient.... More

This was the best restaurant we went to in Ireland. Because we were in this fishing town we wanted to find a good seafood restaurant and this place came highly recommended by our b & b . The food was amazing! We started out with the chowder and it was so good. My husband had the tuna and I had... More
