Northern Ireland is full of delicious places to eat – no matter where you go, you’re sure to pick up some of the world’s most delicious food.
Start with the staples and a plate of serious comfort food – the Ulster Fry can be found almost everywhere, but one of the best is served up at St George’s Market
Follow that up with a taste of the sea – Glenarm salmon, Lough Neagh eels and Strangford Lough oysters are considered delicacies no matter where you go, but especially when they’re fresh from the nets around here. Sample some of the best at the Mourne Seafood Bar
Next, a total classic: the Comber potato. This unique spud, with a world-class reputation, is grown around Strangford Lough of County Down – they’re perfect when they're drenched in creamy Abernathy butter from the Lagan Valley. Sample them at the Schoolhouse
in County Down.
Oh, and you’ll need something to drink too! Northern Ireland has a proud tradition of craft breweries – the Hilden Brewery
is the island’s longest-running independent brewer, and they craft fine ales and stouts that go with almost anything. Or grab a flask of County Armagh’s
delicious apple cider, made with Bramley apples grown in the Orchard County.
If you’re looking for something with more of a kick, try Old Bushmills whiskey – with a 400 year history along the northern coast of the island, it’s a drink that’s been perfected over the ages. Try it at practically any bar, or get a real test at the distillery in Bushmills, County Antrim.
And to top it all off, you’ll need something sweet! One of Northern Ireland’s most famous treats is known as Yellowman candy, a type of honeycomb that’s perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth! You’ll find it in sweet shops everywhere and at the Auld Lammas Fair.
So now you’ve eaten well, what’s next?
