Top Dishes Pescetarians Coming to Ireland Must Try

Unfortunately, Ireland is not too vegetarian/pescetarian friendly. There are some suitable dishes available, but none which are very deep-rooted in traditional Irish cuisine. A standard Irish meal usually consists of meat and two types of vegetables. Visit an old Irish family for dinner when in the country and you will still be served such a […]

Restaurant Review: Panda Mama

When I made my first couple of trips home after moving to Berlin, there was one thing which dominated my mind: food. I was barely off the plane before heading into the nearest shop to buy bottles of Lucozade, bags of Tayto, etc. The list was long. In fact, if your are interested in my […]

The Jameson Experience

Quite simply, I do not meet the Irish stereotype when it comes to whiskey. In fact, it could be said that I actually bring shame on the country’s beloved drink. Why so? Because when I do drink whiskey it is mostly bourbon whiskey, and I also mix it with cola. On the odd occasion I […]

A Heart Full of Pride on St.Patrick’s Day

This post is going to be short, but yet very sweet. Not thanks to me though. I defy any Irish person not to be moved by the video below which was put together by Fáilte Ireland. I found this on Joe.ie and made the mistake of watching it while in work. I was a blubbering […]

Po-ta-to

I love the potato. There, I said one of the most stereotypical Irish things that could ever come out of my mouth. I really do love it though and I could eat it in any shape or form (except that powdered or ready-made instant mash crap). It was a golden moment last week when I found […]

I’m Just Too Far….

Today I just wanted to quickly share with you all a much-loved song of mine. Yes it is cheesy, and yes they are not the original artists, but I don’t care because Westlife ‘Home’ is one of my all-time favorite songs. I always liked the song but since I came to Berlin it has taken on a special […]

Be Careful What You Wish For

I am going to do right now what is expected of an Irish person and complain about the weather. In Ireland we love to complain about the weather and are completely justified in doing so as it rains for about three hundred days of the year, and sometimes we can have four seasons within a […]
