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.

  • Lovely food,bit disappointed with the sharing plate in comparison to ordering your own,a lot smaller portion but was tasty regardless.

    Excellent fish and chips - beautiful fresh fish, light, crispy batter and fabulous chips. Large portions, also get tartare sauce, slice of lemon and mushy peas!! Yum, yum.

    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
