Murphy's Mobile Catering & Dursey Deli

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

The Murphy family’s Dursey Deli may very well be at the end of the world – well, the end of Europe, anyhow – but that doesn’t deter food lovers from hopping in the car to drive all the way down the Beara Peninsula just to enjoy the fresh fish cooked by these gifted and talented street food masters. The fish is caught at the pier, most usually haddock, monkfish and whiting, and cooked in the van and served with crisp, dry chips, and it all adds up to a sublime eating experience at the edge of the world. Of course, there are other choices, and with the burgers being concocted by the local butcher in Castletownbere the meat selection is as local as the fish, but the freshness of the fish, and the chance to eat it close to the water’s edge, really does make sort some sort of out-of-body experience. Indeed, the Dursey Deli experience is so singular that it’s now commonplace for people to say that this is the best place to enjoy fresh fish and chips, anywhere, and critical acclaim has followed in the wake of their terrific popularity. All this, and you can even get a lovely ice cream for dessert! There is nowhere else like the DD.
