Kish Fish is a family run business that was founded by Tadgh O’Meara Snr along with Danny Hughes in 1966 when they first began selling whole fish in the Dublin Fish-market. Today Kish Fish is now run by the O’Meara family and their team who have developed a strong wholesale business with two popular retail shops; state-of-the-art premises in Coolock, and also Bow Street, in the heart of Dublin’s historic Smithfield area. At both of our premises you’ll find the freshest fish daily.
So where did Kish Fish get its name?
The Kish Bank is a shallow sand bank about seven miles off the coast of Dublin. It is marked by the Kish Lighthouse, a landmark well known to sailors and ferry passengers passing through Dublin Bay and Dún Laoghaire harbour. At the time Kish Fish was established the Kish Lighthouse was built, and the Kish light still shines, two white flashes every 20 seconds, day and night. This light is reflected in our logo.
