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!

  • 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  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.

  • positive review  This is a hidden gem. On our way to Skibbereen we made a special detour to here. Our 1st visit and we were not disappointed. On the strand with fab views we were able to walk off our dinner. The decor is quirky and fun. At peak times you may have to wait for table but so worth it. All the staff were very pleasant and friendly. We had 1 of the sharing platter the nicest and freshest fish I think I've ever tasted. very reasonably priced. Home made chips were yum. will definitely be going here again.
