A Little Tip…..

by Kerri | November 7, 2011

I’m back with another post about the Irish culture! This time is has to deal with the Irish Drink! So in my last post, I talked about the Irish food. This time my focus is the drink.

Guinness is probably the best known drink of the Irish culture. There is a history behind it. I have personally gone to the Guinness Factory and took the tour, drank the sample of Guinness and went to the Sky Bar to see the 360 degree panoramic view of the city of Dublin. As you move through the factory you get the history of the beer and how it is made. I found it really interesting.

Check out the web site for yourself. You can view the history, see all the different advertisements Guinness has used over the years ad even check out the Guinness Store! Please drink responsibly.

A Cultural Experience…..

by Kerri | November 4, 2011

Hey all! So I’m posting again for my Intercultural Communication class with Professor Grodzki. So like I said in my intro about the class, I am focusing on the country of Ireland. My main focus is on food and drink. So this blog post I am going to focus a little on the food aspect of Irish culture.

It seems that most people of the Irish descent eat a lot of meat and potatoes. In fact, a lot of the time people have described Irish food as bland. This is due to the major use of potatoes and cabbage according to my article.

I got to experience Irish food hands on over the summer when I was studying abroad. I must say for the most part I cooked and ate in my apartment (with my roommates of course!) due to the higher price tags of eating out, but when I did go out I tried to get first hand experience on the culture of Irish food. One night I remember we all went out and got Beef and Guinness Stew. I must say it was not bad at all. Otherwise, Ireland truly is not really known for its’ food. It’s more known for the drinks.

The drinks will be in my next blog post so stay tuned for that! Thanks for reading!!!
