Irish recipes

Enjoy the craic with some of our favourite Irish recipes, including classics such as colcannon, soda bread and Irish stew. Learn how to make Irish coffee at home too, to finish your meal in style.

We’ve got recipes from some of the island’s top talent, including Irish chef Richard Corrigan’s rib of beef and ideas from baking expert Cherie Denham, who grew up on a farm in Northern Ireland. We love her cheese and mixed herb scones.

All of the below are great for marking St Patrick’s Day on 17 March – or see our celebratory St Patrick’s Day collection, featuring recipes made with Baileys, whiskey and Guinness.
