Reason 9: Excellent food

You’ll put a stone on. But it’ll be worth it.

The grub (food) is good in Ireland. Dublin, for example, is buzzing with a new foodie heart where eateries like The Exchequer, Fade Street Social, Bear and L’Gueuleton are spicing up the city’s dining scene. In Belfast, The Barking Dog is a new trendy addition while Ox is serving up delectable three-course lunches for a mere £16 (€20). Being an island, there’s no surprise that seafood suppers are in plentiful supply. Fishy Fishy in Kinsale is a stand-out for fish dinners while both Galway and Louth are famed for serving up some of the world’s finest oysters. The Skelligs Chocolate Factory on the Kerry coast would make Willy Wonka jealous and the Chocolate Garden, ensconced in Carlow woodland, is a cocoa bean dream. To view Ireland with a foodie friend, both Fabulous Food Trails (Dublin & Cork) and the Kilkenny Food Trail have you covered.

Now, what’s for lunch…
