St. Patrick’s Day is a month away and I’m sharing some love of the Irish with a round-up of recipes, with inspiration from the kitchen to the table! And to help you get your green on, I have a couple of giveaways in celebration!
The first giveaway is a beautiful cookbook full of delicious recipes, Clodagh’s Irish Kitchen: A Fresh Take on Traditional Flavors:
With Ireland’s rich culinary history, it’s understandable that internationally recognized dishes such as Colcannon and Soda Bread should be representative of the country’s identity, but there is far more to discover about Irish cooking. Let Clodagh guide you through this tempting collection of 150 recipes―Potato Dumplings are reinvigorated with a Spicy Cashel Blue Sauce, while the famous Full Irish Breakfast is given a new lease of life as a tortilla. With everything from soups and stews to preserves and sophisticated dinner party dishes, Clodagh’s Irish Kitchen is a mouthwatering adventure around this sumptuous cuisine.
The drool factor is high in this cookbook! Here are a few of the recipes that tempted my taste buds:
Irish Coffee Cookies, Guinness Cake, Colcannon Soup with Parsley Pesto, Irish Lamb Stew with Pearl Barley, Beef and Guinness Pies with Chocolate, Wild Mushroom and Irish Ricotta Bruschetta, Salted Caramel Whisky Bread and Butter Pudding, Baked Oaty Pears, Irish Apple Tart, and Baileys Irish Soda Bread Ice Cream!
The second giveaway is a set of 6 pint Green Ball Heritage Collection Mason Jars.
You can use them for corralling napkins and flatware for a table for a Picnic on the Porch.
Fill them with some green and white flowers for An Irish Blessing Table
Give candy kisses and Kiss Me I’m Irish Cookies
Serve Fizzy Patricks to little leprechauns
Or use as a vase for some spring blooms!
To further whet your appetite for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration, here’s a round-up of recipes and table inspiration.

Shamrock punch on fresh leaves -fun & unique idea. Your photo of the trifles is spectacular.
I love Kerrigold butter and cheese. YUMMINESS Irish soda bread and a cup of Irish Breakfast tea with cream
I love potato soup and my daughter has to have potatoes with every meal. Love your blog, especially the tablescapes. I always enjoy reading your every post. Happy St Patrick’s Day.
Potatoe soup is my all time favorite. And I can’t wait to make yours. As alwaus. I love all your ideas!
Just saw these green mason jars. They were in a small basket, four across in a row. Thought about getting them for my herb cuttings and placing on my sink counter to enjoy. But didn’t have the money that day to splurge, so passed them by. Hope I am a winner of either lovely gifts. Being Irish the cookbook would be delightful and yummy I am sure.
Keep those beautiful pictures coming our way, they so make my morning readings enjoyable!!!
I would have to say Shepherd’s Pie!
I love Irish Soda Bread, Irish Lamb Stew, and of course the mashed potatoes. My paternal grandmother was Sottish and Irish. She taught me to make a few dishes of each before we moved to Michigan and left her in Washington. I would love the cookbook, a little bit of the Irish to remind me of my grandmother. (She passed when I was 17, we left when I was 9)
Oh my goodness! I didn’t think it possible, but I think you’ve outdone yourself with the great recipes and ideas in this post! Corned beef and cabbage with carrots, soda bread and a Guiness has to be my favorite Irish (American 😉) dish … No recipe needed! This should be eaten on St. Patrick’s day whilst watching The Quiet Man, my favourite John Wayne/Irish Movie!
Although I’m not Irish (I hear we all are on St Patrick’s Day!), my favorite thing to eat on that day, is Irish Soda bread. It is such an easy and tasty treat. Delicious!
But that Brownie trifle….oh my!
Irish soda bread and shepherd’s pie.
hello. love this giveaway. I have a cookbook collection but nothing IRISH!! But those Mason jars??? gorgeous. I don’t cook alot of Irish, but corned beef and cabbage has to be my go-to Irish dinner, my mother used to cook it and now I do. thank you so much!!!
Love Irish soda bread, and the stout beef stew. I love your creative recipes & ideas…although not Irish, I grew up with an ir ish friend Else Kangley, who moved back to Ireland, when she was in high school. All these years later, I still think of her with sweet memories…visiting Ireland has always been on my bucket list.
I’m a fool for Irish soda bread…just printed out the Irish whisky soda bread recipe….perfect for this cold morning!!
Thanks for more inspiration :)
P.S. the rose merengue cookies turned out perfectly — thanks for a great tecipe!!
I love chocolate Guinness Stout cake! The stout just enhances the chocolate. As always you have a beautiful post! Would love to be a winner!
Boy I have the luck of the Irish today with all those great ideas just waiting to be tried. My favorite Irish food is the salmon I had direct from Lake Killarney when we visited Ireland. It was so enchanting there…misty with dozens of shades of green. Hope I have some luck with the give away.☘
The Irish beef stew and soda bread definitely has my mouth watering just thinking about it. What a wonderful surprise it would be to win! Thanks for the opportunity!!
Anything potatoes. And that Irish creme looks divine. Thanks for the giveaway!
I alway make corned beef and serve it with colcannon.
Shared on Facebook.
My favorite Irish food is Shepherd’s Pie – – yum! A side of colcannon soup cannot hurt :)
Beautiful photos. My favorite Irish food would be beef stew.
Oh my! My birthday is the 16th of March, and I always celebrate it with a St. Patrick’s party. Corn beef , cabbage, and good old Irish soda bread. Would love the cook book! 🍀☘😎🌴
What a beautiful and delicious roundup of St. Patrick’s Day treats!
I recently read about the cookbook and a new twist on Irish cooking. Would love to add to my collection of Irish cookbooks. In our household anything Potato is welcomed. Shepard pie is a regular meal with Irish soda bread. Yum!
We do the full monte for St. Pat’s Day with a traditional Americanized version of Irish food! Corned beef and cabbage, taters cooked in the broth, and soda bread. The favorite of all is a creamy horseradish sauce!! Getting hungry just thinking of it!! Thanks for your great blog ! Always look forward to it!!
With ot without any giveaway, your compilation posts are outstanding! Pass me the beef stew and soda bread, please!
oh pick me pick me :) haha – my son was born on St Patrick’s day so it is always fun – love those shepherd pies! Great photos and post Mary!!! <3
I love all of your ideas and the recipes sound wonderful. I think corn beef and cabbage would be my favorite but I want to try some of the others you have listed. I am going to look for the green mason jars and check the cookbook out from my library. Thanks for sharing so many ideas for decorating.
I’m green with envy looking at all those recipes and the beautiful table!! My favorite Irish dish is the stew!! Even though I’m not Irish, we always celebrate that day. Thanks for sharing and GOID LUCK to all!! ☘☘☘☘🍀🍀🍀🍀. I’m also on Facebook so I’ll be sharing this when I get on my Facebook page..
Your posts are always beautiful and so well done!
I love Irish cooking- would enjoy perusing the recipes…
hen I was Little …( A Long Time Ago ) , my Nana Feeney would take me to Irish Dances on Sunday Nights . I would stand at the Snack Table and eat Irish Soda Bread ( The Real Deal ) , all night . Still remember the delicious taste , hard to find nowadays . look forward to your Photos and recipes all the time . Keep-up the Good Work , LUV !
I saw the cookbook and the jars keep the email coming. I love your little dogs
Good morning! I am Irish and I would love to win the beautiful cookbook, filled with gorgeous photos and recipes. I was part of a supper club several years ago and we chose different themes and Ireland was one of our Supper Club themes. I made one of my favorite Irish dishes, Scotch Irish Eggs! They are delicious whole, hard boiled eggs, wrapped in seasoned sausage, rolled in bread crumbs and fried to a golden brown! Unique and delicious! Wishing you the luck of the Irish!!!
Mary, Reading your blog is truly one of the highlights of my day. Being part Irish makes me proud to see how you have featured this culture in so many ways. It is hard to say what my favorite dish would be, but I would have to say anything with potatoes.Love the flavor of Champ enhanced by the Kerry Gold. I am having a dinner party for my friends the day before St Patrick’s Day and would love to be a winner of your giveaway to put my party over the top. Wishing Irish blessings to you and yours
I am also sharing this on facebook
I love Irish soda bread and also clotted cream…yum!
Love that watering can I just saw in one of the potting shed photos above! :)
Hi Mary, Clodagh came to our local dish shop and made the trifle in this wonderful cookbook. It was delicious! And she has such a delightful brogue that I could listen to her all day! This is a wonderful book and I’m planning to make the Guinness Cake for St. Patrick’s Day this year. All your links have gotten me excited for spring greens and festivities. Linda
Just shared on Facebook!
Thankful for such a delightful post. I am hosting a group of friends for dinner in March an you are my inspiration and life saver to make it happen!
I love the four leaf clover punch out of real leaves!! My next favorite is the Fairy vignette!!
Stewed cabbage with boiled onions, potatoes, parsnips and carrots.
The Irish apple cake is delicious! It is especially good served warm.
I love my Mother In Laws recipe of her homemade Irish soda bread warm out of the oven. I make corned beef, carrots, potatoes and fried cabbage with a little butter and onion. Our favorite part of ghe meal is my Mom’s pistachio cake with green dyed cream cheese frosting and fresh shamrocks to decorate the top!☘ Your recipes all look delicious I would love to try something new this St. Patty’s Day!
Your blog always makes me smile. We had two Bichons whom we loved dearly. Both are gone now. Your pictures bring back such happy memories.
As to this issue of your blog, Faith and Begorra! It all looks wonderful!☘ My husband is the cook in the family. He’d love it, but it might actually get me cooking!! I’m awful. Rick says my attention span is too short. I’m always off trying to do something else and forget what’s on the stove……..
My maiden name is Harrrigan. I miss people remembering the song…….
Oh! I forgot! Potato soup! Mother always made it on St. Paddy’s Day.
Without a doubt, corned beef and cabbage with Irish soda bread! I love those green canning jars!
Beautiful post! When I wake in college, I used to go an Irish restaurant and they served Blarney PuffBalls. Potatoes with cheese, garlic & herbs. Rolled into little balls & fried. Delish! I’d love some right now. Thanks for sharing all of your pretties!
Mashed potatoes, especially with the puddle of butter. Love reading your blog. I thought I had a lot of different dishes.
Mary, you are so inspiring. Love all the recipes, but potato soup would definitely top my list. Thanks for all of your ideas. Annette
Oh Mary, what a fabulous post of Irish inspiration! I want to make each of your recipes.
What’s my favorite Irish food…hmmm, when my late beloved and I visited Ireland, I loved the Brown Bread that was served and I’ve never been able to duplicate. It was full of grainy goodness, and not like soda bread.
Gotta be potato soup. It’s so comforting. Not on Facebook but will share my email.😁
Soda bread. My wonderful mom makes loads of it every year for a friend, that serves it in her restaurant with corned beef and cabbage on St Patrick’s day. She makes a special batch with no raisins for those of us that don’t like cooked raisins. The jars are beautiful and this was a bright green glimpse of hope for Spring days soon to come. Thank you.
I absolutely love your blog!! Thanks for such a nice giveaway opportunity! My favorite Irish food has got to be Irish Soda Bread. I’ve never made it before, but this is the year I’m going to give it a try!!
Wow! I am drooling here ! First, I thought “I really don’t need another cookbook,” especially since I look for new recipes online these days, but then I decided I really need this one. Everything looks SO good, and I would probably make everything in the book. The only thing I’d consider Irish around here would be potatoes…I love them almost any way they’re made! Thank you for this giveaway! The jars are also a very nice prize!!
Love Guinness Irish stew with soda bread. Made this for my Irish hubby’s birthday and was enjoyed by all.
Shepherds Pie! Yum!
Having trouble sharing on my Facebook page, but finally got it to work for a third chance. Thanks so much !
I’m drooling over all your fantastic photos. I would have to pick Irish Soda Bread as my favorite Irish food because I’m a huge bread lover! I like it served with corned beef and cabbage!
Totally Irish inspiring post! It all looks delicious!!
Hi, my favorite Irish food is the brown bread that is served in Ireland. There is nothing like it in the States.
Mary , you have outdone yourself with this post! Everything looks & sounds wonderful. My favorite Irish food would have to be corned beef & cabbage.I add lots of extra veggies to the pot. Sharing your beautiful post & thanks for the give away!
Beautiful post, Mary! Hope you’ll join in my 8th Annual St. Patrick’s Day Blog crawl on the 16th. Wonder who got the traveling Irish topper? I know Sarah had it last year. Irish cooking sure has evolved in the last few years. Growing up, being called one wasn’t something to brag about! 😊 You know the old joke about a 7 course meal being a six pack and a bag of potatoes! 😮
Shepherd’s pie! Especially good served in a bed and breakfast in Ireland!
I am not familiar enough with Irish food but would love to try the recipes in the cook book! Your giveaways look awesome! I will log in and follow you on Facebook now!
Hi Mary, I loved this post-how can’t I when I’m full blooded Irish? You are bringing back memories from my trip to Ireland last year to see where my grandparents were from. I love Lamb Stew that I had there and many other treats, but due to the gluten couldn’t sample any fresh Soda Bread-such a disappointment. I also loved the Oatmeal that we had in the southern part of the country. Would love a chance to have one of those prices. I’m a subscriber and also going to FB now to follow you(if I don’t already), so please enter my name a third time.
Great blog. I love Irish soda bread and make it often.
Loved, loved, loved your Irish salute! Being 100% Irish you made my Irish eyes smile. My favorite Irish recipe is one I have from my Grandmother Gerrity and brings such wonderful memories to mind. This bread is made in tin cans and is wonderful with a cup of tea (my Grandmother served her’s in her beautiful Irish teacups).
And your blog makes my day :)
Always look forward to your posts! They are wonderful eye candy…..and the recipes are to die for! Thank you for the giveaway. I love anything potatoes, but the Homemade Irish Creme is something I have made for years. I love it in coffee!
I like Irish soda bread.
Potato soup…also signed up for emails.
Top of the Morn’in Mary!

I love, love, love your blog, Mary. You always share so many fun and creative ideas. Thanks for brightening my everyday.
I love Scones and Guinness and Green Spot Irish Whiskey!
Mary, my favorite Saint Patrick’s day food is Irish soda bread using our family recipe that has been passed down through the generations. Once again you have shared with us a beautiful collection of recipes and décor that would make any Irish proud. Thank you, and thank you for an opportunity to win your giveaway. MM
Oh, I forgot to mention that I am an email subscriber, wouldn’t want to miss a post. MM
I love Irish Soda Bread. I used to fly often to Shannon, Ireland and loved the soda bread with stew and beer!
My favorite Irish food is Shepard’s pie! I make it at least once a month. Yum! Thanks for taking your time to give out some of your great recipes to try!
Corned beef & cabbage ….I am a traditionalist!
So pretty – makes me long even more for spring and planting time! Just recently discovered via DNA testing that my roots are Irish and Scottish . . (.and my grandfather always said our roots were “probably German!”) So, top of the morning to you all – I’m on a quest to get to know Ireland and Scotland!
I love corned beef and cabbage but there are so many good things “Irish” that I like!
Irish beef stew & soda bread, for this gal! Thanks for the giveaways! Just LOVE your page – always the best ideas, recipes and photography!
I always do corn beef and sauerkraut in the crockpot to make sandwiches. So yummy! The whole family loves it.
Irish soda bread and Shepherds pie.
My Mom ‘s Irish soda bread with glaze that tastes more like cake! AND, my St Patrick’s day omelet with green pepper rings that look like shamrocks!
All time Favorite is Coffee with Irish Crème. Second is any soup with beef and Irish potatoes in it.
Love the pictures and the ideas Mary. I had not heard of this cookbook. Looks wonderful. Never have enough Ball Jars of any color..:)
Patricia (NC Coast)
Shepard’s Pie is definitely my favorite Irish food. I had it once in a restaurant in Buffalo, New York. The best ever!!
My favorite is Shepherds Pie. Wonderful comfort food for anytime of year.
Oh so many favs but I have to say that every year I make Irish Soda Bread using a recipe I picked up in a Portland Oregon Irish shop on St Patrick’s Day, 1977. It wouldn’t be St. Patrick’s Day without it!
Shared on Facebook too!
corned beef and cabbage-yummo
Sip some homemade Irish crème.
Potato soup and Irish soda bread…yum! Looks like a wonderful cookbook!

We always end our annual St. Paddy’s dinner with an Bailey’s Irish Creme Brûlée – delicious!
I would have to say my favorite is corned beef and cabbage, and also, Irish potato soup. Yum yum!
Just shared on facebook
I was delighted that Irish cream fell into St Patrick’s Day recipes but beef stew is a favorite.
Great book! Looks like a fun and beautiful St. Patrick’s Day. I do love corned beef and cabbage and some green beer.
I like potatoe soup on a cold day which we have had a lot of cold days lately !
I have been reading your blog for quite a while. Each posting gives me a dose of inspiration. I have tried quite a few of your recipes, and all have become favorites. Potato soup and soda bread gives my Irish roots a tingle, but almost anything you have posted is delicious. Your photos make me drool and cook! Thanks for your ongoing. quality blog, I tried one for a short time and realized the skill required to do it well.
Can’t wait to make the Homemade Irish Cream, and then the Kiss Me I’m Irish Cookies!
Thanks Mary for the lovely give-away. My Mom is from Dublin and she loved any fish/seafood. Ireland has wonderful fish dishes. Corned Beef and Cabbage are good, but it’s not something the Irish eat in Ireland, it’s an American thing.
I also like Colcannon and Champ.
I love your blog, you are truly gifted.
Your Irish beef stew looks SO delicious!!! I will try it as we love stews and soups. It is always wonderful when you do these round ups, everything in one post!!! You know I am a follower:) A Happy follower!
Great post. Thanks for great ideas and recipes.
My favorite is Irish Stew but I like all the dishes.
My mother was pure Irish. Love nothing better than stew and bread.. YUM. Love St. Patty’s Day.

I have to say that Irish Potatoes are my fav. Not sure if that is technically a traditional Irish food but I am a sweets girl!
My favorite Irish food is Corned Beef and Cabbage and Colcannon.The cookbook is beautiful! I also like to make Shepard’s Pie.
I love Damaris Phillips’s recipe for Shepherd’s Pie made with stout. My husband is British, so he enjoys meat and potatoes meals like stews. I’m looking forward to trying several of the recipes you posted. Your blog is awesome! Thanks.
Love, love, love, your site. My Dad was Irish and he LOVED potatoes, and so do I. And I do like soda bread also.
My fondest memories of childhood were visits with my Maternal Grandparents who were of Scotch Irish decent. My Grandmother always prepared my favorite breakfast of Irish oatmeal with apples, cinnamon, and brown sugar. I continue to have a healthy breakfast of oatmeal with fruit and yogurt. Think I will try the apple cake for St. Patrick’s Day gathering. Thanks for sharing your creative ideas.
This is my second entry as I subscribe to your blog by email. Thanks again Mary for your inspiration.
I love corned beef!!

Gorgeous photos and ideas for St Patricks Day food. I am from Savannah, Ga where we celebrate March 17th in a big way!!
All your dishes look wonderful !! And I am hoping to try some of those recipes you shared :) I have a wee bit of Irish running in my veins plus my birthday is in March , so what a great month for making Irish stew and beer bread!
Of course I will see you on FB too :)
Corned beef and cabbage is my all time favorite!!! I’m already a susciber, and of course I will share this on FACEBOOK!!!
Love the pictures in today’s post. I like to start St. Patrick’s day with scones. Some years I have added a drop or too of green food coloring, but mostly i like to serve them plain with clotted cream. And some Irish coffee is a nice way to end the day, especially if it has been a chilly day for the parade. I love the presentation of your trifle served in the green mason jars.
I love pasties which are like your hand pies.
Shelley had to collect and cook Irish recipes last year for American History. She put together a cookbook and cooked some wonderful meals. I love practical projects like that!
I grew-up eating Irish food because my great grandmother was Irish. But I suppose my very favorite Irish dish is boxty.
There’s a saying that if you want to keep your man, you have to cook a good boxty, and if you can’t, then you’ll lose him! ;P
Great post. I’ve bookmarked it so I can enjoy it during the coming weeks!
I like good ol’ Irish Stew. And a nice hot cup of Irish Breakfast Tea.
I follow by email.
Love the Irish Green; reminds me that Spring is near! Our favorite Irish dish by far; Corned Beef and Cabbage. My children call every year to make sure I am making it before they come over <3
I love Irish soda bread & make it every year. And I also love Irish Potatoes – a candy made from coconut, powdered sugar and cream; shaped into irregular balls (potatoes) and rolled in ground cinnamon. This is a favorite in the Philadelphia area! ☘
Ok! Don’t even know where to begin! Why you don’t have a cooking and decor show is beyond me! You are truly incredible !! You put Martha to shame! Ha! Love! love all your stuff! You are an amazing talent!! You need to be discovered !! Anyway! I guess I would have to say Irish Stew and soda bread! Oh sooo Irish! Take care you clever ,talented one! I so look forward to your posts and You truly inspire me in my decor and in the kitchen!
I really love Coddle, especially on cold days!
Corned beef and cabbage. And anything with that most fabulous veggie…potato!! Those green mason jars are stunning!
Irish Stew is my favorite! Your recipe for creamy potatoes looks fantastic.
Everything looks yummy! Thanks for sharing so many recipes. My favorite? Irish soda bread, with caraway seeds inside! Wish I had a loaf ready.
Everything looks delicious! The potpies sound so yummy! Love the green mason jars too!
I have to agree! Your blog always makes MY day!! I cannot tell you how many times I check back over here for cute little decoration ideas for tablescaping!! I am exactly 1/2 Irish and my grandmother was born in Ireland. Believe it or not I am not a fan of corned beef and cabbage, but pretty much all of the other recipes you have here sound VERY good!! I think I will try a few of these drink recipes…and the pies!! Hugs to Chloe and Gracie!
Oh my gosh…you are amazing. Your ideas and tablescapes are spectacular! Irish Stew is my favorite! My great grandmother Catherine came over from Ireland…so absolutely love celebrating St. Patty’s day!! I am a follower, also through e mail and on FB! I will share this over there too.

Anyone would be lucky indeed to dine on these Irish treats Mary! I would like a Brownie Trifle for breakfast! Pretty please make that Salted Caramel Bread and Butter Pudding from that beautiful cookbook, I would love to try that!

Love some Irish soda bread with lots of Kerrigold butter and potato soup. Yummy! My maternal grandmother’s birthday was on March 17th, I always think of her with love when St. Patrick’s Day rolls around.
I love love love this website I check on it everyday. I love that you put a picture of the ingredients. Brilliant. Because sometimes recipes will say an ingredient but I’m not sure what that is and the pic tells you. I’m making the pot pies this weekend. Thank you. PS love the kids (dogs)
I absolutely love this website! It is such an inspiration with a wealth of ideas for creative and festive food, tablescapes, and gardening. I’m excited to try a number of Irish recipes from this post, especially Homemade Irish Cream. Thank you!
Cornbeef and cabbage
I must say my favorite is homemade Bailey’s Irish Creme. And my next is potato soup! Thanks
As much as I love seeing your recipes and dinnerware what I really love is your photography—it is beautiful—course doesn’t hurt to have that wonderful view with the water—the colors especially of food and even the green in the mason jars really beautiful—must remember these ideas—-corned beef and cabbage—tradition.
I remember a few years ago making your recipe of the “green mashed potatoes” … they were a hit!…and I must say that corned beef and cabbage is my favorite St. Patty’s day/Irish food!!
My mom is all Irish so I have a few recipes from my family that I try to make often. My favorite is Irish apple cake, Potato cakes, and Irish soda bread. Bacon and egg pie is great too. Thanks for your giveaway!

Don’t put me in the drawing….I’ll buy the book & I already have the green jars. I even ran out & bought the 4 leaf clover punch after seeing what you did with spinach that year. You are such a great inspiration, Mary. Thanks for all the delightful ideas you share!!
Your website is an inspiring visual wonderland! Thank you!

The potato soup in the bread bowl is my “A” number favorite. Long time follower.
Potatoes and Irish soda bread – YUM! Thanks for the opportunity.
I follow via email.
Fanny Madge’s Potato Candy is my favorite family recipe handed down through the generations. It is light and feathery with an ever so delicate wisp of coconut. We serve it at luncheons and give as gifts. Someone is always amazed that the main ingredient is potato. Thank God for the Irish and our resilience.
omg i love your recipes!!!!!!!!!!! lol i totally want to make some of those dishes :) yummy! My favorite has always been the Irish Soda Bread lol what can I say i love bread lol.
My favorite Irish food is corned beef and Irish soda bread, especially at my favorite Irish pub.
Mary, Your posts are ALWAYS beautiful & delicious! I love Irish Soda Bread. I always use Cuisine Kathleen’s recipe.
I sure would love to own the green Ball Vintage Style Jars.
Have a great day,
P.S. Your Lavender Lemonade Cupcakes were an instant hit at our church Homecoming Day meal!
In our home it’s lamb, mashed potatoes and gravy. And then Shepherd’s Pie with the left overs!
i love irish soda bread!!
I absolutely love Irish soda bread – I have to dig out my recipe!
As always, I was delighted when I read your St. Patrick’s Day tribute and I enjoyed reading every delicious Irish recipe and looking at the creative and charming way your tabletops were “wearing the green!”
… and I loved the idea of cuttng shamrock’s from a leaf!
You continually amaze me with your creativity and artistry.
My favorite Irish foods are Sheperd’s Pie and Potato Soup.
Hope you have a wonderful day! ☘
What a wonderful post! St. Patrick’s Day has long been one of our favorite holidays!
My favorite Irish foods are actually the traditional dinner of the Irish in the New World, corned beef and cabbage with boiled potatoes. I also love mussels. I always order a steak with Irish whiskey mushroom sauce at our favorite Irish bar/restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale. My hubby loves Shepherd’s pie. We both love chocolate cupcakes that I make with Guinness in the batter, a filling that includes Jameson, and a frosting that has Bailey’s mixed in. Finally, we love a bread pudding with Irish whiskey caramel sauce.
My favorites are Colcannon, Irish Soda Bread with raisins & a sugar crust + Irish butter, and Bailey’s (or Tullamore DEW). I also like black pudding, Irish Salmon, & Spring Lamb.

Hi there Mary,
Sheperd’s pie and Irish Stew are at the top of my list of favorites. However, after viewing you post, I think there may be some additions!
Being an Irish girl, I just love all the Irish food. Anything potato has my top vote. Just to prove that I am Irish to the core, my maiden name is Duffy. A solid Irish name!!!xoxo
Ireland is the most wonderful and beautiful place. I took my daughter and granddaughter there 2 years ago at St. Patrick’s day time. We had a wonderful time.Since we are part Irish and from Texas the people loved us and showed us the kind of hospitality would would love to have when visiting an area.They told us that Irishmen fought in the Alamo and we would not have won if not for them. They love Texas and Texans .I also have a dear older lady friend( nun) who is from there whee she was 16. I share Irish food from recipes I find and to take her . She will not being going back home due to she is in her 90’s . Thanks for sharing.Hope I win so can share more stuff.
Baileys Irish Cream fudge is my favorite Irish food served with a steaming cup of Irish coffee. Thanks so much for a great article and the giveaway. Might have to add the bread pudding to my dinner party this year!!!
Potato soup for sure. An all-time favorite during the winter months.
Irish Soda Bread! Or maybe corned beef and cabbage!
Probably corned beef and cabbage.
I love corned beef and cabbage! I will definitely be trying your recipe for homemade Irish cream. Thank you for this opportunity.
I love Irish stew and so does one of my twins. The other loves potato soup. I would love to go to Ireland one day and see the beautiful green everywhere.
I’m not Irish but my birthday is on St. Patrick’s Day. When I lived at home my mom would always make Irish beef stew and soda bread for my birthday meal. So those are my favorite Irish foods.
I LOVE THE BOILED DINNER, AND SODA BREAD, AND GUINESS FROM A MASON JAR OF COURSE, HAPPY ST PATTY’S DAY
My go to is corned beef and cabbage but those Beef and Guinness pot pies look delicious!
Oh, that’s a tough one! Its a toss up between corned beef and cabbage and potato Au gratin: )!

Your posts are always so beautiful. This one is so full of color and mouth watering food items from the Irish Cookbook. I remember when I had my first taste of Irish Soda bread just freshly out of the oven made with Whole wheat flour….so very tasty.
Thanks for this giveaway and for the sponsor and the post.
We normally do a brisket for St patrick’s, but I also love bangers and mash. Thank you so much for all the wonderful recipes. It’s always such a pleasure to visit your site.
I think that my favorite Irish dish is Colcannon! While I love corned beef, Irish soda bread and many other dishes, it is my favorite and look forward to having it on St Patrick’s Day! Braised Cabbage is my next fav!
I would have loved to enter the contest, but I just got this posting today. March 5th :(
Mary, Where did you get the green flower napkins that match your cabbage plates? I add to my mom’s “cabbage collection” every year for her birthday. I have been on the search for a perfect napkin to give her this year. Thanks for your help!
Hi Kasey, All the sources are at the bottom of the individual posts, just follow the links :)
Lots of competition on this one. We usually make corned beef and cabbage, although I understand that this is an American idea, not Irish but it’s a great excuse to make this dish. Sometimes I make Irish soda bread and often drink Irish breakfast tea.
I did the facebook thing, also!
irish soda bread and corned beef/ might change to your lamb srew/beef
My favorite is my grandmothers Irish soda bread right out of the oven with shephards pie (or Irish stew) and colcannon. And of course with a cold Guinness! But then again, any Irish food is delicious! Wonderful article and the pictures are fabulous!
Thank you Mary!
