Food & drink

Taste Irish delicacies during a stay in Dublin holiday homes

You won't want to miss out on a taste of the city's iconic Guinness. More than 10 million pints of the stuff is crafted each day in this stout-loving capital. Head to the Guinness Storehouse to learn all about its creation and get a sample for yourself. Hearty Irish stews are a must during the cold winter months. You'll find them packed with chopped lamb, earthy vegetables and steaming stock, and on the menu in the pubs. Oysters from the west coast of the Emerald Isle also beckon seafood lovers in the fish bars, while Dublin's own coddle is a filling mashup of all sorts – expect sausage, potatoes, carrots and a side of crunchy soda bread.
