The Pepper Pot


We had the pleasure of meeting an American mom who is now living with her family in the Dublin area. We came across Kristin Jensen through her blog, Edible Ireland,  which emphasizes the amazing food in the Emerald Isle.  Kristin was kind enough to meet me for a bite at The Pepper Pot where she shared her experience with the food scene in Ireland.  We tried smoked salmon and homemade brown bread as well as fresh local salad ingredients.  Everything we tried was delicious and looked as beautiful as it tasted. Kristin also shared how she encourages her children to experiment with new foods.  Let’s just say a little bribery might be involved… especially with the tempting sweets at The Pepper Pot!  When I go back to Dublin, it will be one of the stops on my list for sure!


The Pepper Pot is located on the first floor of the Powerscourt Centre in a shopping area so plan to spend some time poking around the shops.  We had fun popping in to a doll store where I picked up a little gift for my girls.  The area is quite busy and there may be a bit of a wait for a table at the restaurant, but it will definitely be worth the wait!


We did a lot of research for the show! Though we couldn’t visit every destination, we did want to show you what else we found.

Murphy’s Ice Cream
27 Wicklow Street, Dublin 2

Have you have had brown bread?  Have you ever had brown bread ice cream?  Well, if you want to give it a try, I highly recommend Murphy’s Ice Cream, just off of Grafton Street.  There are many unique flavors and the shop is charming complete with a swing.  The owners happen to be American, though you can’t tell from their accent!  Well, they fooled us at least!  They also have locations in Dingle, Co. Kerry and in Killarney, Co. Kerry.  For more information, you can also check out Kieran Murphy’s blog: Ice Cream Ireland.
