Make sure you have a lemon handy, and possibly a dollop of tartar sauce, because if you like fish, you’re in for a treat. Quinlan’s have opened a cutting-edge fish counter in Dunnes Stores on the North Circular Road, selling their signature, award-winning, fresh-from-the-ocean fare, so now everyone can enjoy the wonderful taste of Irish seafood, seven days a week.

This is Quinlan’s third location in Tralee. Their flagship shop and seafood restaurant at The Mall in the town centre has been a family favorite for years, and they recently opened a take-away and fish shop in the Horan Centre where hungry punters can get delicious deep-fried fish and chips to go, from 12pm – 8pm Tuesdays to Sundays, or wet fish to prepare at home, Tuesday to Saturday, from 9am to 6pm.

Quinlan’s pride themselves on their culinary expertise, and rightly so. This year, they took away two gold medals in the Blas Na HEireann Irish Food Awards for their Superior Smoked Salmon and their Porcupine Scampi while their Seafood Chowder won them a very respectable bronze.

Liam Quinlan, CEO of Quinlan’s Fish, couldn’t be happier with the new developments.

“Expanding outside our own independent shops is something completely new for us and we are really excited for this new venture. We’re delighted with the response from our customers so far. A huge thank you also to all our team and to our local tradesmen who did such a fantastic job on making both our new fish counters look so state of the art. And a huge thank you to all our loyal customers both in Kerry and further afield who have supported us throughout the years. Pop in to see us soon!”

So whether you like yours battered, poached, fried or baked, get down to Quinlan’s and enjoy the mouth-watering, life-affirming taste of the sea.
