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

Facebook

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

10. Sofantastic

Sofantastic that it shut down.

*sob*

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?>
