Our Delicious story

The Fish Basket is the creation of Peter and Elaine Shanahan.

We are serving fresh fish & chips locally sourced from West Cork.

Cooking is an art and patience a virtue. Careful shopping, fresh ingredients and an unhurried approach are nearly all you need.
There is one more thing - love. Love for food and love for those you invite to your table.
With a combination of these things, you can be an artist.

They all our food

Just a few of many positive comments about our food!

  • 1 star for fresh fish - avoid "platter - enough for 2" - ?? 2 toddlers perhaps - minus 4 stars for poor value

  • positive review  We had a lovely walk along the beach and stopped for some food. Everything was beyond delicious. Fish tacos, mushroom soup, shrimp scampi, to name a few. The freshest ingredients. All came with delicious brown bread. We will definitely be returning.

    Had the sharing box. Two large pieces of hake, scampi, mushy peas and chips. Plenty for 2 and only €15. Fish was so tasty and fresh! Amazing view as well !

    Absolutely gorgeous food. Well worth a visit. Kids loved the hens, pigs + sand area. Selection of fish + chips just delicious. We ate here twice in our few days in Clonakilty. It was just that good we had to go back!

    Perfect stop enroute from Baltimore to home. We opted for the Scampi x 2. Excellent value. 10 Euro fish & chips. Served with tartar sauce, peas & wedge of Lemon. Vista from picnic table over the valley to Rosscarbery. Just gorgeous. Very clean area. 2 very friendly dogs part of the home grounds. Pigs & hens to show the kids. Toilets spotless. Bins provided for waste one for food rubbish other for cans , plastic bottles. Lovely young girl & lad serving. Look forward to popping in again enroute from Baltimore. Had chips here before with fish basket whilst in car park down the road. New venue much nicer. Well worth supporting too.

    positive review  Fabulous food served by the sea on the beautiful Long Strand. Delicious fresh fish ! The restaurant is in a rustic wooden hut at the entrance to the beach, it’s well worth a visit you won’t be disappointed.

    Wasn't our first time at the Fish Basket, love the location, We had a couple of first timers with us who also enjoyed the experience, we ordered 2 sharing boxes and a burger, food was delicious, I've deducted one star due to mix up with our order but I'm being really picky here, the mix up was handled very well, the fish basket was very busy which is lovely to see, we loved the food served and will be back very soon
