When I studied in London, I was fortunate enough to hop over the Irish Sea to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, commemorating the patron saint of Ireland.
My friends and I stood on the sidelines of the big Dublin parade on Dame Street, watched rugby, wore green and drank generous amounts of Guinness and whiskey in several different pubs. I can’t tell how much of the day was tourist indulgence, but I had a lot of fun.
When I returned that June, I lived on the Northside for two months and came to appreciate a different side of the city — and its food and drink. I still loved the pubs, Guinness and whiskey, but the simple, quieter pleasures of cups of tea, hearty bread and a vegetarian Irish breakfast spot I found in the city center also shaped what was one of the best summers of my life.
Irish cuisine reflects its culture — welcoming and warm — and these recipes from our Recipe Finder showcase that. Filled with cabbage, potatoes, lamb, whole grains and, of course, stout, these are some classics you don’t want to miss.
