Lunch and Dinner in Ireland

When in Ireland, you tend to eat a lot of pub grub. I would equate this to the affordable food options that we have here in America. Its usually pretty simple food - stews, fish and chips, chowder, grilled sandwiches. After spending 12 days in Ireland, we got a bit sick of meat and potatoes so we ventured out to try some other cuisines - Thai, Indian, Italian. I wouldn't say that we loved Irish food as it seemed a bit bland, but we did enjoy trying the many variety at pubs and restaurants across the country. We did have some of the best thai food we have ever had in a little town called Kinsale. It was so hot, it really made me sweat! I can't even get them to make it that hot in California!

Thank you so much for the pictures. My husband and I will be heading to Ireland in a month. Rosebud sent me over here to check things out. I hope you'll be doing some recaps as well.

I like fish with chips a lot. Fried foods are my favorite. Fish with chips is my favorite takeaway item. I also like this one and told mother to make this at home also. is also a great portal.
