A legendary Cork chipper has reopened on Maylor Street, offering a tantalising new take on everyone’s favourite cheat meal.
Widely remembered as Mattie Kiely’s, a chip shop has operated at this location for decades. Now in the capable hands of the foodie pros behind Kinsale’s famous Blue Haven Collection, the menu at Kiely’s on Maylor Street has been given a gourmet twist by head chef Meeran Gani Manzoor and we can’t wait to swing by and pick up a fancy takeaway feed.
“The whole idea was to use locally sourced ingredients,” Meeran told Yay Cork.
“It’s fish from Union Hall and Ballycotton, Ummera chicken, local Cork potatoes for chips most of the year, weather permitting. Then we’ve brought in international flavours like togarashi, Thai curry, squid ink, salmon roe.”
So what are we eating?
Start your order with a portion of chips served with guacamole, creamy garlic aioli or Parmesan and luxurious truffle mayonnaise.

Make a meal of it by adding Kiely’s 56-hour sous vide beef stew and crispy shallots or pulled chicken Thai curry topped with radish, chili, and sesame seeds.
The star of the show is the Chip Butty: Cuthbert’s white sliced pan topped with a seafood croquette, fresh-cut chips, homemade tartare sauce, and crunchy slaw.
If it’s fish and chips you’ve got a hankering for, your ship has come in; as well as the catch of the day, you can order prawn scampi with chips, crunchy slaw, and togarashi mayo or crisp tempura haddock, served with tartare sauce and a lime wedge.
Kiely’s is open for take-out on Maylor Street (there’s a few tables outside too) from 12.30pm to 9pm, Wednesday to Sunday.
