Irish Recipes


Ireland is well-known for its farming tradition. Of course, potatoes are a key ingredient in Irish cooking, and indeed have been a stable ingredient in the Irish diet ever since their introduction in the late 17th century, but many other crops are grown too - including barley and oats. Additionally Ireland produces some excellent livestock - in recent years, beef has risen greatly in popularity,, but lamb and pork are both traditionally popular.

As you might expect, given Ireland's long coastline and seafaring tradition, seafood is also forms an important part of Irish cuisine. Oysters are very popular - and oysters are a popular event around the country, where they are eaten with Guinness. Ireland is also known for Dublin Bay prawns (langoustines) which are actually a miniature type of lobster. Popular fish include cod and salmon.

Many Irish meals are eaten with bread - and Ireland has its own unique types of bread, including:
  • Soda bread - A bread made using baking soda instead of yeast. Whole wheat soda bread is known as "wheaten".

  • Irish potato bread (also known as "fadge", "potato cake", "potato farls", and "slims" - as well as informally as "tatie bread") - Unleavened bread made using potatoes instead of much of the wheat flour.

  • Blaa - A very soft white bread roll, covered in layers of flour, that is unique to Waterford.
Blaa - Soft white bread rolls from Waterford City, Ireland

Some popular Irish dishes include:
  • Irish stew (Irish: Gaelic: Stobhach Gaelach) - This is probably the most famous Irish dish in the world - it's a stew made from lamb or mutton, with potatoes, onions and parsley. Some cooks recommend the addition of barley, root vegetables such as carrots, parsnips or turnips, or even Guinness. Irish emigrant communities around the world have taken this dish with them and adapted it to local conditions - for example, beef may be substituted for lamb, or paprika added to spice the dish up!

  • Coddle - Pork sausages and bacon rashers are quickly cooked. Then, potatoes, onions and perhaps barley, are added, and slowly cooked using the stock from the meat.

  • Bacon and cabbage - A traditional Irish dish. Although, Irish Americans often used corned beef, this is actual an adaption of the original bacon and cabbage recipe. beef and cabbage.

  • Champ - Mashed potato with chopped scallions (green onions), milk and butter.

  • Colcannon - Mashed potato with kale, cabbage or wild garlic.
