Ireland’s food scene has come a long way since it was defined by corned beef and cabbage. Throughout Dublin, a wide range of restaurants serve up excellent and varied international fare. Here are a few food experiences not to miss while in Dublin.
Local pubs are the best places to sample authentic Irish dishes such as hearty Irish stew, a slow cooked blend of meat (usually lamb), potatoes, and vegetables. Other old-fashioned classics include champ, a combination of mashed potatoes, scallions, and butter; colcannon, kale or cabbage mashed into buttered potatoes; or black pudding (blood sausage). For a light bite, stop into a bakery or café for Irish soda bread and a cup of tea.
