We all love a good chipper, whether we’re sober, drunk or severely hungover.
Chips cure everything – and you should never go too long without them.
But not all chips are created equal – so we’ve tapped into our sources around the country, and compiled a list of the best places to get a chipper in every county in Ireland.
You may not agree with all of them (we’re open to suggestions!) but you’ll definitely be inspired… eat up now!
Antrim – Flash In The Pan
Main Street, Bushmills
These chips taste like more.
So good you’ll be going back for seconds, and thirds.
Armagh – The Galley
Barrack Street, Armagh
No bullshit here – just straight up chips.
All we want, as we want it.
Carlow – Roosters
Market Square, Bagenalstown
Locals describe these as “delicious, cooked-to-perfection chips”.
Can’t ask for more than that.
Cavan – Ms Roma
Main Street, Cavan
Every true Cavan person knows it – a staple feed for every night out, ever.
Clare – Enzo’s
Marine Parade, Lahinch
No better place to stumble into after a few too many.
The only way to sober up after a night on the lash.
Cork – Sorrento
Midleton Street, Cobh
AHHH, you thought we were going to say Lennox’s, didn’t you?
People appeal for Sorrento’s number so frequently in Facebook groups that they screenshotted one comment and put it on the side of their delivery van.
And their chips are gorge.
Donegal – Donegal’s Famous Chipper
Upper Main Street, Donegal
No, honestly that’s really their name – just ask any Donegal native.
Derry – Donaghy’s
Clooney Terrace, Derry
Good chips are few and far between in Derry, so thank God for Donaghy’s.
Not only are their chips to die for but their fish is pretty feckin’ tasty too.
Down – Pit-Stop Fast Food
The name might not inspire confidence, but locals will tell you: these guys serve up one heck of a bag.
Dublin – Cervi
Drury Street, D2
Not a traditional chipper, but an unreal and very special one nonetheless. Think outside the box and you shall be rewarded lads.
(With Leo Burdocks and Beshoffs in a close, tied second place.)

The Market Place, Derrylin
Hello boys and girls. You will be 100% satisfied with a bag of chips from Bosco’s.
Galway – Supermac’s

The Burger Shack are loved far and wide, by locals and tourists who have tasted their heavenly, fried-potato deliciousness.

They’re the ones you get in Frank’s.

Main Street, Kilkenny
The atmosphere, the people and most importantly: the chips.
You won’t be disappointed.

Giovannis are as reliable as it gets when it comes to homemade chips.
Limerick – Enzo’s Cafe
William St, Limerick
Limerick has got some great chippers, but Enzo’s is simply the best.

Main Street, Longford
If you’re stranded in Longford and in dire need of a good bag of chips then Luigi’s will sort you right out.
Louth – Angello’s
Dublin Rd, Dundalk
A large portion of chips is just €2 in Angello’s.
We’ll take three please.
Mayo – Val’s
James Street, Claremorris
People of Ballina, Castlebar, Westport, etc – bow down to the true county champions. Honestly, how beaut do these chips look.

Main Street, Ratoath
You can’t go wrong with Macari’s. Delicious, fresh chips – every time.

With a name like that you know it’s got to be good.

Offaly – Nino’s
Kilbride St, Tullamore
Like a mother’s hug, but deep fried and in a brown paper bag.
Roscommon – Norio’s
Circular Road, Roscommon
Norio’s have nailed the formula for a bag of chips. The ideal balance of potato and oil.
It’s perfection, really.
Sligo – The Four Lanterns
John Street, Sligo Town
It’s all about that ‘Big 4’ sauce here.
You won’t find it anywhere else and it really makes their chips the heavenly meal that they are.
Tipperary – Aaron’s Takeaway
Described as “the best chipper in Ireland” on reviewer, we see where they’re coming from.
Aaron’s are revered by locals for serving up a huge, delish feed.

Fyfin Road, Strabane
Honestly, these guys know their stuff.
Thick-cut chips fried to perfection, time and time again.
Just what the doctor ordered.

Grattan Square, Dungarvan
Genoa is famous around the country for its chips ‘n’ ice cream – a highly unusual combo, but one that never disappoints.
Locals are lucky to have it.
Westmeath – Franco’s
Mullingar Road, Castlepollard
Ahhh Franco’s. The best chips around, and always served with a smile.
It doesn’t get much better than that.

In one word: tasty.
A divine bag of chips in a divine town.

Florence Road, Bray
Locals hold Henry & Rose very close to their heart.

So now. Let the fighting commence…
