Some local people recommended this unique place and it sure delivered, probably some of the best chips I ever had, and the freshest of fish and the portions were massive, super friendly staff too!

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)
