About Fishy Fishy

Fishy Fishy Restaurant Kinsale, is an award-winning restaurant run by husband and wife team Martin & Marie Shanahan who are totally passionate about what they do.

Chef Martin Shanahan knows a thing or two about fish. His passion for seafood saw them open their original Kinsale Gourmet Store in 1990. A fish shop and deli in one, it regularly had queues of diners vying to be seated. This roaring success led them to expand the business and finally culminated in the opening of their Fishy Fishy Restaurant.

Martin's background as a fishmonger ensures that the restaurant is supplied with only the best of fresh fish from the waters off the south coast of Ireland. He takes pride in personally knowing who has caught his seafood that morning and ensures that only the freshest catch & local produce go onto his menu.

The spacious Fishy Fishy Restaurant is set out over two floors, with an additional outside area for al fresco dining during the summer months. Whether you are a visitor to Kinsale, or living in the town, all are welcomed and catered for by Martin, Marie and their team.
