After years of American travel, we are planning our first international trip together, to Ireland.
There are lots and lots of touristy things we can do in Ireland, but I'd particularly like to ask for advice from a Roadfooder's perspective of foods we we should seek out.
I know Irish food only from what I've encountered in Irish restaurants in the US - Irish stew, soda bread, Dublin coddle, colcannon, bangers. I like all that, but I don't assume that it's authentic, and I don't assume that it reflects all of Irish cuisine.
What else should I seek out? Are there regions of Ireland with their own specialties?
