These Dublin Chippers have Got It in the Bag

Every week at City Language School, we like to let our students know what\’s happening across the city – places they can go to hang out, engage culturally and, above all, speak English.

This week we thought we\’d take you to that great old Dublin institution – the chipper or fish \’n chip shop. Here are three of the finest around.

Leo Burdock, Werburgh Street, Dublin 2

Just a short stroll up the road from the school is Burdock\’s; one of the country\’s oldest chippers and still one of its finest. This Dublin \’institution\’ has been around for over 100 years and you might feel that you have been standing in the queue for the same length of time when you visit on a busy day. Stick it out though. It\’s well worth it.

Henry & Rose, Bray

OK, so technically speaking Bray is not in Dublin but this chipper is well worth jumping on the DART for. The fact that there are great walks along the promenade and around the Bray Head nearby, makes it even more special. Expect long queues at weekends.

The Golden Chip, Phibsborough, Dublin 7

Dublin Chipper

This old school Dublin chipper in Phibsborough has a unique charm.

There\’s no frills here. Get in, order and eat your little heart out with lashings of vinegar and salt. Very popular with locals and we all know locals know best.
