Want to know where to find the best fish and chips shops in Ireland? Whether you’re craving a battered cod or a steaming hot pie, we've got you covered!

Heading out on a stroll along the breezy Irish seafront sounds pretty perfect for many - but what would make it even better? Grabbing an oh-so-tempting fish and chips on your way home.

Betway has revealed the top 10 fish and chip shops to try on the Emerald Isle, with a family-fun chip shop in Dingle coming out on top.

To determine the rankings, the popularity of each location was measured by a unique index score - based on the number of hashtags and views each location has racked up on Instagram, as well as Trip Advisor rankings - with the lower the overall index score the higher the ranking. 

In first place was The Fish Box in Dingle, bringing the best and freshest seafood. Nestled in the heart of Dingle - the chippy is loved by locals as well as those visiting for the very first time. 

Galway’s Hooked followed behind in second place, as it appears to be an absolute must-try when you’re next on the hunt for a Friday treat. The award-winning chip shop has something for everyone - from traditional fish and chips to seafood tagliatelle. 

Meanwhile, The Fish Shop - situated in bustling Dublin - wasn’t far behind as the chippy proved to be popular by landing third place. The traditional Irish chippy is regarded as a place to try if you’re passing through the city - boasting a distinct Spanish influence by serving traditional takeaway options as well as battered hake and sole. 

Gourmet takeaway shop KC & Son & Sons, located in Cork, joined The Fish Shop in third place. The shop is known for its good, honest food at an affordable price.

Jackie Lennox’s, also in Cork, placed seventh overall - and it seems to be offering everything you could want from a well-deserved fish supper after a long week. 

Other popular chip shops that made the list were The Fisherman’s Catch, Clogherhead; Reel Dingle Fish, Kerry; and John Keogh’s Gastropub in Galway.
