Black pudding – This food is what makes a fried breakfast Irish! It is made from pork/lambs blood (sorry) and oatmeal. A favourite of the nation, please do not let the ingredients but you off, it is delicious. Try it as part of a traditional Irish fry or on its own with fresh bread and a mug of Barry’s Tea!
Tayto Crisps with a Dairy Milk bar – Although delicious on their own; these native treats are lovely when devoured together (seriously)! Especially if your palette is normally fond of sweet & savoury combinations. Extra points if you wash them down with a Club Orange or Cidona
Traditional lamb stew – The traditional Irish stew uses lamb as its meat of choice and is a delicious, hearty comfort food especially during the colder months! Top tip, it is even nicer the second day around.
Dried Carrageen – First tasted sometime throughout an Irish childhood, we either grow up loving or hating this dried moss (which is also used as a remedy for cold and flu). Consider it Marmite of the Irish Nation!
Fresh Irish soda bread – With some homemade jam and real Irish butter, there is nothing better! Ahhh bliss!
