A Taste of Ireland Part 1 – The West Coast
I went to Ireland expecting a lot of potatoes, and I was not disappointed. I was fortunate enough to have potatoes in many different forms throughout the country. Here is what we ate in Ireland.
Our first meal in the country was at a pub in Galway called Murty Rabbits.
I had a classic seafood chowder with Irish soda bread. It was full of salmon and of COURSE potato.
During our Cliffs of Moher bus trip, we stopped in Doolin for lunch at Gus O’Connor’s pub. I had a really amazing carrot and coconut soup with a side of, well of course potatoes.
That night we went for dinner at a restaurant right across the street from our Air BNB, Pasta Factory. Here you can pick whatever combination of toppings they are offering that week, on your pasta of choice. I went for the prosciutto, arugula, peas, goat cheese and parm combination for mine. It was super tasty.
I couldn’t pass up dessert that night, so we headed to Gino’s Gelato in the city centre, where I had a scoop of pistachio.
Before catching our bus to Dublin, we stopped for lunch at Supermac’s – a very clear McDonald’s stand-in across the country. Both Ethan and I got the Mighty Mac. I was not a fan of this burger at all, and like, I don’t have that high of burger standards.
