The Best Fish And Chips In Dublin

Picture of Kate Phelan
Updated: 23 November 2016
Since its first so-called ‘chipper’ opened in the 1880s, Dublin has been known for its fish and chips. Loved by celebrities and laymen with equal fervour, this is a dish that the city has successfully made its own. From decades-old chains to seaside tapas bars, here are the best places in the Irish capital to find traditional fish and chips.

Howth’s Beshoff Bros fish and chip shop have been in business for more than three-quarters of a century. Established by Russian immigrant Ivan Beshoff, the chain has become arguably Dublin’s favourite source of fish and chips, with stores in the seaside suburbs of Howth, Clontarf and Malahide, as well as two city centre outlets. When their main competitor, Leo Burdock, opened a store in Howth in 2015, it was described by locals as a ‘fish ‘n’ chip war’, but one year on, the two appear to have found a way to co-exist.

The first Leo Burdock opened in the Christchurch area in 1913, under the ownership of the Burdock family and named after their son Leo. Another Dublin institution for fish and chips, today their many loyal customers can also find them in Temple Bar, Dundrum, Rathmines, Tallaght, and several other locations across the city. Their traditional fresh cod and chips, nicknamed ‘the Dubliner’s caviar’, also attracts celebrities. According to their ‘Hall of Fame’, everyone from Sandra Bullock to Snoop Dogg has dropped into Burdock during a visit to Dublin.
