Who doesn't love chicken wings? Dublin is jam-packed with so many places that offer seriously good wings that it's sometimes hard to pick which restaurant to go to, so we've created a list of our five favourite spots.
You could walk into nearly any eatery in Dublin and find chicken wings on the menu, but not all wings are created equally. As the perfect food for an after-work bite with a sneaky pint, wings hold a special place in our heart, so there's nothing more disappointing than getting a lacklustre portion.
To make sure you're satisfied with your wings, we've rounded up five of our favourite spots in Dublin for you to head along to and indulge in some good old-fashioned wings. Read on to find out where we think you should get your wing fix this week.

Wishbone, Montague Street
Dubliner's love their wings and Wishbone definitely has some of the best. With its pleasantly short menu that includes old favourites alongside innovative flavours, you're sure to be satisfied at this spot. While we're always delighted to find a particularly good buffalo wing, if you're feeling adventurous, we suggest you opt for the Spiced Orange or Salted Toffee Apple wings; they might sound weird, but you'll be pleasantly surprised at the taste.
Wing It, George's Street
Even though it has only just opened, Wing It on George's Street has already cemented itself as one of our favourite spots for wings. The company's homemade sauces are well-known for being some of the tastiest around, with Wing It's buffalo wings even crowned Best Wings at Bray's 2017 Wing Fest (which returns this year from July 19th-20th). With 16 flavours and regular, boneless and vegan wings available, there's definitely something for everyone available on the menu. If you can't make it to the city centre location, Wing It's sister location opened in The Square Tallaght in 2014 and offers the same delicious selection of chicken wings.
Fowl Play, The Square Ball, Hogan Place
We're lucky enough to be based just around the corner from Fowl Play, so we love popping in for some sneaky lunchtime wings. Andy Noonan's stellar barbecue joint is a hidden gem, specialising in meat cooked on a charcoal rotisserie or over their Texas wood-fired smoker. While there are lots of options on the menu, we love the cherrywood smoked free-range wings, which come in two flavours: Louisiana Hot and Alabama White BBQ.

Smokin Bones, Dame Street and Phibsboro
This authentic slow-n-low barbecue joint started out as a small stall and has since grown to include two Dublin locations, as well as making their own sauces. Offering great food at extremely reasonable prices (check out their stellar student deal, which is only €6.95 for a main and a side!), Smokin Bones has a variety of options on their menu, but their wings are what really make them stand out. There are six varieties of sauces available, varying from mild to extremely hot, so order with caution.
Blue Bar, Skerries
Skerries might be a bit of a trek from the city centre, but once you've tasted Blue Bar's wings you'll be willing to make the journey all the time. Known for its great drinks selection and atmosphere, Blue Bar is one of Dublin county's best hidden gems. The portion of wings is absolutely massive and the sauce hits all the right notes. Definitely worth the trip!
