If you have Irish heritage—or even if you don’t—you’ve probably tried Irish food. Especially in the United States, Irish-themed parties and celebrations are common. But believe it or not, St. Patrick’s Day specialties, such as corned beef and cabbage or soda bread, are not as Irish as we may think. Both foods, due to immigration and some creative culinary changes, have Americanized versions that may be more common in the States than in Ireland.

Wondering what sort of Irish foods your ancestors enjoyed? Look no further. Here are six traditional Irish foods directly from Ireland itself.
