I stayed in Limerick for 2 weeks in early March 2014, and it didn't take me long to discover my favorite place for breakfast- Mortells Delicatessen. The food was incredible, I recommend the full Irish Breakfast, but anything they serve is bound to make you happy, I have no doubt about that. The proprietors and staff are also extremely friendly and good for a chat if that's your kind of thing. They gave me some great ideas of things to see and do in the area, all of which turned out to be fantastic.

Please, if you are in Limerick, do yourself a favor and give this place a shot, you will not be disappointed!

After our very long trip from Seattle, the bus from the University of Limerick stopped on Roches St, in front of Mortels, which beckoned us for a homemade meal. We needed to taste Ireland; Brian's personal preparation was a delight! The meal was fresh, tasty and presented with care. A couple of days later we went back into the city, walking and noticing restaurants--too many offering foreign foods we get plenty of in Seattle. We went back to Mortels with a craving for fish and chips--Brian served an upscale version that was simply delicious. We couldn't leave without tasting the pastries--mincemeat pie, mmmmm. If you desire to taste Ireland when in Limerick, go to Martels.

We just happened on Mortells and serendipity reigns supreme. Our welcome was only surpassed by the quality of the food. My wife's the foodie, I generally treat food as fuel and will happily refuel just about anywhere. Mortells is not just anywhere. Fresh hake selected from the chilled display and cooked to perfection. The owner and chef was happy to give us tips on selecting, storing and cooking fresh fish and his passion for food is evident. We were there mid-afternoon for a late lunch and with the lunch-time rush over he was happy to sit with us for a time for conversation and banter - at our behest of course. Mortells is the perfect antidote to a grey February afternoon. (And Ireland did win the following day!? See you soon, Brian.)

Brian and his wife were so nice and held the baby during dinner, We had the best fish and chips ever! Brian filleted the fish right there in front of us.
Thanks for the amazing memory!
