Limericks most famous chipper has been dishing up quality food for near a century. Ask anyone in Limerick or their mother and father and they will tell you about Donkeys.
Don't miss an opportunity to taste arguably the best fish and chips in the country and take in a piece of local history at the same time.
My own recommendation is the battered sausages.
