So The Irish Times have declared that McDonaghs chips in Galway are the joint best for the best chips in Ireland. It’s reader polled but What a sham, McDonaghs chips are not the best chips in Ireland, they aren’t even the best chips in Galway. I am convinced that they keep getting labelled as the best from years ago when they originally won that best chips in Ireland award, that was the in the 90’s I think!. It seems like ever since then people just seem to agree, I can’t remember anyone being too passionate about their chips before they got the award. I’d love some feedback on this but in my opinion there’s a few places that have nicer chips in Galway.
Completely my opinion but here’s my list:
1.) Bethlehem (Ballybrit) – Small Potato chunk chips, they are beautiful
2.) Vinnies (Dominicks St) – very nice if you get them fresh (beware getting them too early in the evening)
3.) Norios (Merlin) – Usually very nice
4.) McDonaghs (Quay St) – They usually are pretty nice and tend to be fresh but would take the others over them any time
I just blogged my brains out,
