Dublin, Ireland

Green vegetation, beautiful blue water, and breezy weather!

Dublin's Dining

Your taste buds will love this foreign food, guaranteed! Many stories are told about the potato in Ireland. One says that this vegetable first arrived in Ireland in the 17th century. The effect of this is that many people in Ireland love to eat potatoes. Since people like to eat this vegetable, they are sold on every corner of Dublin, Ireland's capital. Due to the Great Potato Famine, the Irish are very conscious of lack of food or hunger, and when someone is in need of food, they kindly provide it. Another famous Irish dish is carrots, corn beef, and potatoes. Be sure to eat Ireland's fabulous foods!
