LOCAL FAVORITE
LOCAL TASTES It’s crystal clear why we get a warm feeling on the Ring on Kerry with traditional Irish Coffee – as much a warm welcome now as it was for stranded travelers in 1943. It was a wintry night in Limerick when Foynes Port chef Joe Sheridan concocted this soothing elixir of hot coffee, Irish whiskey, sugar, and whipped cream to make their cancelled flight a little more palatable. Raise a toddy glass of Caife Gaelach with a hearty “slainte!”

" A traveler once asked me if I'd actually given birth to Ireland. I told him I hadn't - as far as I was aware - but I do feel very passionate about my country, its people, its stories, and its magic. I absolutely love introducing people to Ireland's many wonders, which is why I love what I do so much!"
