Fishy Fishy Restaurant
The award winning Fishy Fishy restaurant is a must for all seafood lovers and foodies alike.
Owned and run by Chef Martin Shanahan and his wife Marie. The shear popularity of Fishy Fishy has seen them expand their original fish shop & seafood café to open a large seafront restaurant in Kinsale.
Martin selects the best of local produce. His fish is locally sourced where possible, and his relationship with Kinsale's fisherman and fishery's along the South Coast ensures the best and freshest of seafood. His menu changes daily to reflect the changing seasons and catches of the day. All dishes are freshly cooked to order, with the emphasis on quality ingredients.
Open for lunch and dinner, booking is highly recommended at this popular Kinsale restaurant.
