St. Patrick’s Day is known to the Irish as an annual Christian feast celebrating the patron saint of Emerald Isle.

For those who enjoy the holiday at home, preparing a feast of St. Patrick's Day recipes is a must!

Whether you're craving authentic Irish food like corned beef and cabbage or simply looking for ways you can cook (or bake) something green, I've got you covered with traditional Irish recipes and a few fun ones to get you into the shamrock spirit!

In Ireland, bacon and cabbage is traditionally served as part of a St. Patrick's Day feast. Corned beef is the American version dreamt up by Irish immigrants where beef was a more readily available option. Both are simple and delicious dishes, which are perfect for celebrating all things Irish!


This rich and robust traditional Irish farmhouse dinner is warm and comforting. Succulent beef and tender veggies in a deliciously rich gravy made with Guinness!


You can't go wrong with traditional Irish soda bread on St. Patrick's Day (and don't spare the butter)!

Irish Soda Bread is the product of a time when fancy ingredients weren’t available or affordable, so it’s made with only the most basic ingredients. Legend has it that the cross was cut on the top before baking to ward off the devil and protect the household.
