You can eat potatoes......
I went to Ireland for part of my Eurotrip last year. They fed us potatoes every meal. NO JOKE! Even the "mystery plates" in some of the restaurants were potatoes.

Do you ever notice that one food on your plate that's ALWAYS there, those are potatoes.

It's true I do love my taters. But no joke that's about all the food I got when I went to Ireland, a bunch of Potatoes. An Irish meal that's not full of potatoes is about as common as a sober Irishman walking out of a bar!

(If that joke offends someone, tell me and I'll delete it.)

Re: Irish Folks - Cork

Not to derail the thread but everyplace you'll eat in Ireland has mushrooms on the menu as well, and those are always awesome, and usually different from place to place. I'd rather be in Galway (or Kilkenny) than Cork myself, but there should be decent places all around anyway.

Re: Irish Folks - Cork

Anything that helps kill the taste of Guinness has to be a good thing
