“This is a restaurant that could convert carnivores into piscivores with ease.”

Paolo Tullio

“So good they named it twice, is a suitable epithet for this brilliant enterprise right beside Kinsale harbour.”

The Mobile Food Guide

“…the thing about Fishy Fishy, and Martin Shanahan: he can do perfect, every time.”

Sally McKenna

“Arguably the best seafood restaurant in the country.”

Lonely Planet

“Martin’s Fishy Fishy Cookbook is worth a read but, far more than that, it’s worth taking into the kitchen and covering in cooking stains.”
