The most amazing fish and chips, I mean the quality you'd find in a restaurant or good quality gastro pub from a roadside van. Crispy batter, the tastiest chips and not a hint of grease. The van was spotlessly clean and the staff warm and...More

Wharton’s has the best fish and chips I’ve had in my 9 weeks of visiting Ireland. I went to other famous chippers, like Donkey Ford’s in Limerick and Reel Dingle Fish, and although Reel Dingle Fish comes close-ish, nobody tops Wharton’s. Kevin takes his time...More

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.

"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)
