Whether you are lucky enough to live in Ireland, are a repeat visitor (like me!), or dream of one day visiting this magical emerald isle, here are 5 Irish recipes you need for a cracking St Patrick’s Day celebration.

It will be a quiet one for us this year. We’ll be sitting down to a pot of my Irish Stew, a loaf of soda bread, and a pint of Bulmers Irish cider for an easy supper, and maybe finishing the day with a sneaky Jameson or two?!

Soda Bread… The ultimate quick bread. A time-poor mum’s Sunday morning savior when she hasn’t got a loaf of sourdough on the go. In under an hour, this savory soda bread will save your bacon (pardon the pun!) and give you a delicious, yet totally easy-to-bake, loaf of bread for the Sunday table.

Apple and Blackberry Crumble

As dessert recipes go, a good berry and apple crumble is about as comforting as it gets. This apple and blackberry crumble recipe is super easy to make and reminds me of those wild Irish berry hedgerows. Serve it with a good dollop of cream, custard, or vanilla ice cream.
