Ireland, Dublin Guide (B): 16 Irish Products to Buy in Dublin

The birthplace of many artistic talents, such as Jonathan Swift and Oscar Wilde, Dublin is the show-window of Ireland, a small country renowned for its rich cultural scene encompassing music, writing, poetry, dance, craftsmanship and more. The food & drink scene of Dublin (much as the whole of Ireland) is just as rich which, in turn, makes it hard, yet exciting, to embrace it in its entirety. This article brings highlight upon some of the classiest and most peculiar Irish-born items that you might wish to have back home from a trip to Dublin!

While Ireland is not necessarily a country you think of when considering chocolate, Irish chocolate manufacturers, such as Butlers and Lir, will be championed by the locals as, at the very least, equal to Swiss and Belgian offerings. Both Butlers and Lir take their craft extremely seriously and produce Irish chocolate that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but utterly irresistible to the taste buds. Butlers has strong ties to Irish society ever since it was founded in the early 20th century by Ms. Bailey-Butler on a small lane in Dublin city. Now it has become a flourishing, world-renowned international business with a vast array of customers, but it has never forgotten its humble beginnings. Upon visiting Ireland, you must sample some of their truffles, fudge, toffee and chocolate bars, to name but a few – and don’t worry, exploring the beautiful and historic Dublin will do more than enough to burn off the extra calories! Butlers assortment boxes range from €5 for a 185g box to €48 for a delicious 1000g box for the whole family. Butlers has a number of wonderful cafes in Dublin’s city centre at: 18 Nassau Street, 9 Chatham, and 51a Grafton Street. Opening hours are 7:30am to 7pm Monday-Wednesday and Friday, 7:30am to 9pm Thursday, 8:30am to 7pm Saturday and 10am to 7pm Sunday. ......
