IF YOU’RE IN Cork city and looking for some proper chipper grub, you’re likely going to be pointed in the direction of one place, and one place only.

And that’s Jackie Lennox on Bandon Road.

Not only is it famous county-wide for its perfect fish and chips

But Lennox’s has quite the history to it as well

Serving up top notch fish and chips since 1951 will certainly get you a reputation

As one TripAdvisor review says, it’s so busy it’s a wonder they can take so many orders at once:

Best chip shop ever! Fantastic food, good prices, worth the walk. Fantastic staff. Have been going here for years and amazed at how it all works. No need to elevate good food with fancy titles.

Locals go straight there when they get back to Cork

You get the distinct feeling that if they opened up outside of Cork, the place would still be rammed

Let’s double up on the Lennox’s.

It’s the kind of chipper that gets recommended by the professionals


And serve every chipper classic you can think of. Like:

And their famous:

Sure it’s the best chips in Ireland, never mind Cork

Next time you’re in Cork, it’s the go-to spot
