Old school.

MACARI’S IN GLASNEVIN is a proper old school chipper – enthusiastically frequented by locals and DCU students alike.

It’s that mixture of clientele, plus the fact they’re beside both The Slipper pub and the DCU campus that makes Macari’s truly worth cherishing.

Their chips, of course, are top notch

As is their fish

But what sets them apart is a willingness to go further than your regular chipper:

They weren’t afraid to go above and beyond when “some lunatic from DCU ordered a full pounder”

It will always hold a special place in the hearts of DCU students

And anyone who has ever drank in Matt Weldon’s


It’s rare to get such ease of access, let’s face it.

They always have so many people behind the counter because of the serious demand

Their fanbase is loyal and dedicated

There’s a reason they win actual chipper awards

That year they laid out gag romantic tables for Valentine’s Day was gas, too


They feature on telly ads too

All hail Macarai’s in Glasnevin
