Food in Ireland

Irish cuisine is slowly seeing more recognition in recent times and although Ireland food may not be as exciting as French or Italian food right away, there’s a sturdy heartiness to it that can be relied to chase away the blues. The Emerald Isle has its own range of popular dishes and to the untrained palate, most of it might seem strange. But when in Ireland, do as the Irish do. Try all that you see, and you won’t regret it.

Rather than any complex dish with a multitude of ingredients, an example of some of the best food in Ireland would surely include soda bread. Ever family has their own recipe which is treasured greatly. In recent times however, the new restaurants in Ireland seem to have shaken the culinary world, receiving 15 new Michelin stars since 2011. Here’s a list of some of the best Ireland food that you should try during your visit.

Cooked in one pot, made with mutton, onions and potatoes, the Irish stew is a flavourful and hearty dish that you will remember for a long time.

When it comes to Ireland food, shellfish is a favourite for many Irish. Clams, cockles, mussels and prawns are some of the favourites.

The Irish version of the potato pancake is delicious and crispy. Boxty goes well with everything including bacon, eggs or smoked salmon.

Barmbrack is a fruity tea loaf that is often slathered with butter and served with tea in the afternoons. There are raisins, candied peel steeped in whiskey and black tea and mixed spice which go into the cake, adding zing and taste.
