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.

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.

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?

When my time in Berlin is over (if that ever happens) one thing I will be forever thankful for is how it has allowed me to become more open to other cultures. I used to think I knew a lot about other cultures when I still lived in Ireland, but in reality I was quite … Continue reading Experience Life: Embrace Other Cultures

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 and made the mistake of watching it while in work. I was a blubbering … Continue reading A Heart Full of Pride on St.Patrick’s Day

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 … Continue reading Be Careful What You Wish For
