When browsing our extensive menu, you will notice some classic meals, along with traditional Irish fare. To teach you about typical Irish food and to have a little fun, we are going to give our wonderful guests a lesson in Irish food terms. Sit back, relax and take a journey into the Irish language with us.

1. Lamb Stew. A typical Irish stew is made of lamb or mutton, with potatoes, onions and a bit of stout for added flavor and consistency.

2. Bangers. In England and Ireland, sausages are called bangers. They are traditionally made with pork, however beef bangers are common. A popular interpretation is the name derived from the casings popping or making a bang when they are cooked!

3. Boxty or Boxdy. Simply potato pancakes, these are a mixture of grated raw potatoes, leftover mashed potatoes, baking powder and sweet milk. Today, cooks often add in onions and garlic for flavor.

4. Soda Bread. This delicious Irish classic is a quick bread that uses soda as a leavener. There are many different ingredients that vary between cook, which can result in standard or sweet breads.

5. Chicken Broody. An oven-roasted chicken cut up with cheese sauce, potatoes and mushrooms.

6. Coddles. This is a traditional Saturday night dinner in Dublin to prevent hangovers. Bits of bacon and pork sausages are stewed with sliced onions and potatoes, seasoned with salt and pepper.

7. Corned Beef and Cabbage. Pickled brisket is simmered slowly in water. Near the end of cooking time, cabbage wedges are thrown in and cooked until tender. The meat is then sliced and served with cabbage wedges.

8. Colcannon. This Irish favorite combines two staples: potatoes and cabbage! Mashed potatoes are combined with shredded cabbage and onions, sometimes served with melted butter.

9. Shepherd’s Pie. In the traditional sense, this is a pie made with minced lamb or mutton topped with mashed potatoes and then baked.

10. Slainte. This one word means “good health” that is heard before sharing a drink among loved ones—a pint of Guinness or whiskey perhaps?
