The Fish Basket

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!

  • positive review  We were directed to The Fish Basket a couple of years ago when you were in the van and we were very impressed with the scampi and chips! Rediscovered you yesterday at Long Strand and it was as impressive. Portions were very generous and the food was gorgeous. Congratulations on the new location and best wishes for 2019.

    5 star review  The fish in batter was cooked to perfection Lovely outside seated area with amazing view over Rosscarbrey. And great for families as they have a sand pit and some chickens and pigs �

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

  • positive review  What a great place. Front of house lady is very friendly and welcoming. It was mad busy but we got a nice little table for two; waited about thirty minutes for out food but it was well worth the wait; no fuss, no frills just honest, simple and tasty food in a fab location. An absolute cracker of a business.

    4 star review  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

    positive review  Not what we were expecting, so much more. Beautiful crispy batter on perfectly cooked fish, mussels to die for and if you didn't want fish and chips, other great choices available. We all agreed it was the best seafood around. Really friendly and helpful people and we were also able to sit outside with our dog, who enjoyed it as well. Can't wait to go again.

    positive review  Pleased to visit The Fish Basket in these premises. A step up from a car park by the N71. Have been looking forward to coming here on our holiday in Ireland. The fish tacos were excellent. Friendly service. The cakes were really good as well.
