Check out our St. Patrick's Day Recipe Festivals in the right-hand column -- each year, a new traditional Irish recipe for each day between March 1st and St. Patrick's Day!
These recipes are sourced locally in Ireland, and represent foods and dishes that native Irish people have eaten for generations. Links to the festival recipes are at the Recipe Festival page, or (even quicker!) just click on the heading in the right-hand column for the year you're interested in.
You can also visit our general recipe collections:
- Our main Irish recipe collection
- The same collection, broken down into a listing of the available recipes
- Our newer, secondary collection of Irish recipes. This is not yet broken down as individual recipes. Bear with us...
- A little collection of Irish stew recipes. Become part of the great debate: carrots, or no carrots?...
In pride of place:
- Our site's single most popular recipe, with more than 500,000 visits over the last five years -- Peter's Mum's Soda Bread Recipe(s), with Video Tutorials. (Please visit us again, soon, as we are about to replace our old video with newly shot HD versions.)
- Because so many people ask for it: The original Irish coffee recipe, invented by chef Joe Sheridan at the old flying-boat base at Foynes (near the present Shannon Airport). The most important words in it: no whipped cream! (You're supposed to use the heaviest pouring cream you can find.) The second most important words: no stirring!
Other Irish food and recipe sources:
- Irish recipes from "Ireland's Eye"
- Lots more Irish recipes from the big recipe collection at RecipeSource (formerly SOAR)
- Recipes from "The Foody". These are mixed together in terms of origin -- Irish, Scottish, Welsh, English, all are there -- but the collection's a good one.
- An online Irish food store. They previously did more kinds of food than just tea: no indication right now as to why they've cut back their product line so drastically.
- Another one, in the West of Ireland
- The Vegetarian Society's list of contacts in Ireland
And not food, but a local business worth supporting:
- Clan Aran Sweaters: hand knitted, personalized sweaters linked to your Irish name and Irish clan
