Ireland: More Than Just Beer! (We Promise!)

Ever dream of visiting a perpetual emerald paradise? If so, you need to go to Ireland! Sam and I both had the pleasure of traveling to this magnificent country, however we went on separate trips (before we knew eachother). In comparing and contrasting of our experiences, we have compiled a list of foods, drinks, and sites one should not miss in Ireland. We were both there for only a short time and spent most of our time in Dublin, so we really cannot comment on the other areas, although we’d love to come back and explore it all!

Food:

  • Bangers and Mash @ The Celt Bar in Dublin
