The 13 absolute best shop names in Ireland

From I Got Worms to Cod Almighty: a definitive chart.

YESTERDAY, WE ASKED you whether Dublin’s Knobs and Knockers was the best shop name in Ireland.

Let’s just say that the response was big. We’ve combed through your submissions to compile this somewhat-definitive list.

Really, there could only be one winner.

Here, in reverse order, are the 13 most awesome shop names (OK, with a few other business names too) in Ireland:

13. Curl Up & Dye


Straight outta Drumcondra. What is it with hairdressers and puns?

12. I Got Worms


If there’s a better-named fishing tackle shop in Limerick (or anywhere), we want to hear about it.

11. Cod Almighty



Carlow’s finest chipper. (In name terms, anyway.)

10. Sofantastic


Sofantastic that it shut down.


9. Paddy Field


Because it’s an Irish Chinese takeaway… (in Monkstown, Dublin)

8. Thai Tanic


Some might argue that this Belfast restaurant’s name is in poor taste.

We would argue that that is irrelevant.

7. Chipsy Kings


Well done, Cork. Well done.

6. The Camán Inn


Cloghan, Co Offaly may be a small place. But it DOES have this incredible pub name.

5. Only Foals and Horses


OK, not strictly a shop. More of a stud farm in Kildare. But COME ON.

4. Lino Ritchie


Finglas’s finest floors.

3. Argue & Phibbs, Solicitors



Sadly no longer a feature of Sligo town. But we couldn’t leave it out.

2. Poultry In Motion


Based out of Rathcoole, Co Dublin. Bringing… poultry… to wherever you are.

1. Big Mickey


For ‘massive bargains’ in Longford.

This was the only choice for number one, amid stiff competition.

*gets coat*

Is ‘Knobs & Knockers’ the best shop name in Ireland?>
