So how was the food in Ireland?

Fresh and dismal: In the country areas, "eating out" pretty much means pubs. These are cheerful, lively places, with an extensive tap of beers and ciders, live music very often, and a limited menu of the same six things, over and over: fish & chips, Irish stew, a burger, a chicken cutlet, and a few other equally hoary options. Portions are large, which is, in truth, no consolation.

Slightly larger towns will also have a take-out Chinese or Thai place. Recognizable dishes.

You can do better in Belfast and Dublin. We had a choice of several speakeasies in Dublin, including at least one very good one, The Vintage Cocktail Club. There is a wide assortment of modern-style restaurants -- lighter preps, vegetarian feasts, game meats, ethnic dishes (Italian, Persian, etc.). Like any big city.

"a limited menu of the same six things"

England was much like that when I lived there eons ago. Plowman's platter, sausage rolls, steak and kidney pie.... And Chinese food had almost no green vegetables, and the tea came with milk in it if you didn't stop them. Yeah, oolong with milk. But I thought it would be a lot better now--London itself is a million times better and I wouldn't have expected less of Ireland. I'm disappointed for you that you didn't find it to be the case.
