I'm sorry I couldn't meet up with you! I've been several times, living nearby. The fries CAN be greasy,but it they're done right, they are not greasy, golden on the outside and feathery light on the inside.
For me, the surest bet is the standard cod. I've tried the "prawns" and it was pretty bad. Inside it was gummy and the outside was overdone.
It is hit and miss. I think it has a lot to do with who is cooking and how old the oil is.
I have yet to try the Snickers bar. I can't seem to talk Frank into splitting one after eating a dessertless dinner up the street at Hank's!


I went to this place a few months ago and loved it! Great service, great food, beautiful space. And it was also my first time to try the fried Snickers bar...they should offer it in bite size pieces though :)


YIKES! Did you really associate this Dublin Chipper with "Britain" Say it ain't so!!! The chips are not so much like the ones in Ireland but remind me more of Five Guys fries. You are so right about the yummy sauces. Next time try the Batter Sausage too. Yummy.


The fish is fresh and awesome. The chips are unremarkable, but I'm not a chip person. THE FRIED BANANAS ARE TO DIE FOR.

If you have any history of heart disease, don't even bother eating here. It's decadently fried food and unashamedly so. But it's the best fried fish I've had since Ireland.

Having never been to Ireland, I don't feel qualified to comment on how authentic everything is, but Jason's descriptions are pretty much spot-on.

Does anyone know if they do their fries the same way every night? Ours were thick and definitely a bit on the oily and starchy sides. Though the greasiness compares with the fries at Five Guys, the style is VERY different - the cut/thickness, the lack of skin on Eamonn's fries, and the noticeable absence of the peanut oil flavor that punctuates Five Guys' fries all brought me back to the Jersey shore and some of the fries you can get on the boardwalk (usually crinkle-cut and highly salted).


The fries are the same, but sometimes heavy. Usually, they are amazingly fresh and creamy on the inside. Sometimes, however, the frying process isn't spot on.


The Eammon's experience would be greatly enhanced with plates and real flatware. No food is tasty enough to overcome the displeasure of eating your meal from wax paper on a greasy table.
