Try a new take on the classics
When first traveling to Ireland, you may expect to eat every version of corned beef and cabbage under the sun, but you will be pleasantly surprised with the diverse selection of options. Ireland is undergoing a culinary renaissance as chefs transform traditional Irish dishes into lighter entrees, capitalizing on the freshest of local ingredients, particularly seafood. At the Mustard Seed Echo Lodge, herb salmon is broiled to perfection. If looking for the classics, don’t fret as a home-cooked, hearty Irish meal can still be found all over the country.
Take a cooking class
In addition to feasting, visitors can acquire new cooking skills under the tutelage of culinary geniuses in magnificent settings such as Dunbrody Country House Hotel, the Ballymaloe Cookery School in Shanagorry and the Belle Isle School of Cookery on the shores of Belle Isle in the Fermanagh Lakeland region.
Experience a new culture
Outside of Irish eats, finding ethnic cuisines is becoming increasingly common in cities like Dublin where you’ll find top-notch sushi, pizza, and burritos. In fact, burritos are so popular in Ireland that you can expect waits at places like Boojum, where high-quality, blissful burritos are made for hungry crowds. Feel free to try one of the many ethnic restaurants when in Ireland as you may find a new favorite cuisine!
