Everything a regular chipper does, Donkeys does it better

It won Today FM’s contest to find the best chipper in Ireland last year. The overwhelming number of votes and satisfied customers that got in touch took it to victory.

A small Limerick chipper has won its reputation on the national stage – and it’s well deserved.

Because the locals absolutely love it

“The best restaurant in Ireland possibly the world”


It’s safe to say that fans of Donkey Ford’s are the most loyal chipper fans in Limerick

And possibly Ireland.


It’s immense, kid

Donkeys is an institution at this stage.

So much so that this couple went there on their wedding day last year


And somebody dressed up as Donkeys for Halloween too
