Located in the heart of Dingle town, we provide the freshest of fish from our very own family trawler, Cú Na Mara.
The Fish Box Dingle opened its doors during the summer of 2018. But long before that, fishing has been at the centre of the Flannery’s life and and is embedded in their nature.
The fishing industry has been ever present in our lives as we are the fourth generation of a truly fishing revolved family. Our father, Michael, has been a fisherman since 1975. In 2000 he opted to build his own 35 meter trawler named ‘Emerald Dawn.’ In 2007, we sold ‘Emerald Dawn’ and opted to move on to a more efficient 24 meter ‘Cú Na Mara’, which is Gaelic for ‘Hound of the Sea.’ In 2011, Michael took a step back and allowed his sons Patrick and Micheál to have a more leading role. Michael took to a more managerial role while our mother, Deirdre, opened her own café. Since then, both Patrick and Micheál have been searching for ways to optimise the value for the Cú Na Mara’s catch. After much thought, we decided to try and amalgamate our parent’s professions and open our very own Seafood Bar.
At the Fish Box we have combined our mother’s 35 years of experience being a top chef with our father’s 35 years of experience being a top fisherman. This, ignited with the drive and passion of Patrick and Micheál, gives us the foundations of something special. And we can’t wait to share it with all of you.
