We never had better Fish&Chips in Ireland... The chips are made freshly from potatoes as you order, the fish is really fresh and the batter is crisp. And the portions are huge.

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!

"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)
