Martin is owner of Fishy Fishy and one of Ireland's leading seafood chefs. He spent his early career working in The Butler Arms, Waterville followed by becoming head chef at Jim Edwards, Kinsale.

Martin's love for cooking fish stems from his time at San Francisco's Huntington Hotel. His team uses local, fresh, seasonal fish served informally by proud staff. Martin believes "Fish is nature's fast food, a gift deserving respect" - the philosophy behind his business.
