Ireland? How’s the food?

After my recent trip to Ireland, the one question I hear the most is, “How’s the food? ” usually accompanied by a look that implies the negative.   Honestly, especially for a pescetarian, the food was fabulous!

 

 

 

Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic Ocean so seafood is on every menu. Here are a couple of my dishes… The crunchy, light battered fish and chips with smashed peas were a late breakfast for me.  The mussels were really fresh and served with a garlic aioli for dipping.

If you are a smoked salmon fan, Ireland is the place to order it. Check out the high tea from the Killarney Hotel.

The cows are grass fed so the dairy is naturally creamy and sweet. If you haven’t had Irish butter, you haven’t lived my friends! You can get Kerrygold butter and cheese at your local grocery store. Give it a try.

We did a ton of walking on our trip and the Irish lanes were lined in hedgerows filled with raspberry bushes. A nice little snack while hiking!

Other than one evening at an upscale restaurant, we ate fresh, simple, clean pub fare (the Guinness was pretty good too!) You can’t go wrong with locally sourced ingredients. Yes, the food was great!
