Ireland ranks 12th for the least unhealthy food choices in this list. According to data from Food Trends and Food Bank Ireland, the country ranked 12th in the world for calorie intake per person, with 10 grams of carbohydrates in food and only 2-1/2 grams of total fat.
The healthiest and most popular food choice is bread and potatoes which provides 5.5-6 teaspoons of sugar per kilogram of the bread or potato being eaten, according to the researchers. A full 4 grams of sugar per kilogram of bread or potato is necessary for everyone in Ireland, but Ireland’s poor access to clean water keeps us away from those nutritious foods.
“With the healthiest food choices, including healthy whole grains, and healthy foods from healthy farms like those in Ireland, the country has an opportunity to make its position look like an example of what is possible,” said FFAIA’s Director of Food Policy and Health Prof Dr. Michael O’Dowd. “It would be easy to say there is some kind of a crisis facing Ireland, but this is not it. Our focus is on Ireland’s food system as a whole, and encouraging its improved health status through improved consumption of healthy foods.”
Most people will never have a chance to eat the most famous Irish dish. Even so, the dish, which is not to be confused with chicken stew, has become quite popular in America and beyond.
Carnitas, or boneless, skinless chicken breasts, are not only eaten by many people abroad, but by those in Ireland. They are also eaten on many menus around Ireland, some of which are more elaborate.

This is not an Irish Christmas tree. This is a tree made of paper, by a company called “Paper Trees” which makes all the paper used for the Christmas tree for you. However the trees aren’t decorated and are just paper covered with stickers.
As the name suggests, the place where the first dinner parties take place on Christmas Eve is the Hotel Casement. The old “Gentlemen’s Hotel” was an old hotel which was part of the Casement family. As the name implies, most guests go there for the first Christmas dinner. During the early years the place was used primarily by local men attending the New Year’s feast. More and more women from other regions in Ireland settled in Casement during the later centuries. When the hotel was sold to a British real estate developer, it was turned into a commercial property and became a Holiday resort. The most recent restaurant on the Holiday resort is a little known, yet highly respected, establishment known as the Hotel Casement Diner. The hotel restaurant offers its customers plenty of choices of food and drinks on the holiday, although its atmosphere is reserved for special occasions such as Christmas Eve’s dinners and weddings. Other restaurants offering festive food and beverage include the “Dining Room”. “Dining Room” in the Old Town is a restaurant that serves fine British dishes such as beef and ham soup, duck and cod tarts, lamb stew and many other dishes.
