Sample typical Irish flavors

Food & DrinkIreland

No trip is complete without discovering the local food scene. With its small seaside restaurants, lively pubs, and local markets, Ireland is no exception to the rule. Looking for the best places to try the Atlantic coast’s typical fish and seafood dishes? Get in touch with your local agent for top recommendations. To sample the country’s specialties, start with seafood chowder, a creamy and tasty fish soup.

For meat lovers, we recommend traditional Irish stew with lamb, onions, potatoes, and carrots, while vegetarians will find plenty to choose from in Dublin, Cork, or Galway. Savor colcannon, a typical dish made up of potatoes, cabbage, and kale, not to be confused with champ, another potato delicacy. Be sure to wipe your plate clean with typical Irish soda bread, which is made with baking soda instead of yeast.

If you're more of a sweet tooth, Murphy's, Dublin's finest ice cream parlor, is the place to go. Surprise your taste buds with ice cream flavors like Guinness and Irish Coffee.
