Originally a Scottish & Irish word, now used in Wales, England and even all former British colonies in place of "shit" but only when suitable, it does not always replace shit in any context. Many non-Scots and non-Irish have started using it in the incorrect context making it sound contrived and plain fucking stuping
Correct:

When watching BBC propaganda "What an utter load of shite!"
When attempting to watch Australian TV "Now that was fucking shite, never again"
When served some below standard food "What's this shite?"
When checking out clothes your missus want you to buy "That's a shite shirt if ever I saw one"

Incorrect:
When warning trouble "You are going to get in shite" (Scots & Irish would use shit or another verb over shite here)
-When giving a compliment "This coke is good shite" (Scots & Irish would use shit or another verb instead of shite here)

the best way to say 'shit' without getting told off, as you can simply say that you were trying out being Irish for the day.

1. A more eloquent or refined way of saying "shit".
2. Sometimes a stronger or more emphasized way of saying "shit": "really shit".

To understand the slightly paradoxical difference note that the word "shite" is usually said in a grimmer and lower tone than the word "shit", which is sharper to say. You can really tear into the word "shite" when you're using it as an insult as in the second example, the word "shit" ends more suddenly. However generally "shite" is not as offensive to say as "shit".
1. "how well did John play...?" "he was shite..."

2. "So how did the training go?" "It was shite!"
