Valerie O'Connor in her book Irish Bread Baking for Today provides recipes for many of the best known Irish breads and some which are lesser known but equally delicious. Contains simple instructions for whipping up boxty and other potato breads, guinness bread, spotted dog, griddle scones, spelt bread, and many, many more.



Breadbaking has long been part of Irish culture. Potato bread and soda bread are mainstays of the diet and have been prepared over open fires since the early 18th century. Still popular today you wouldn't get too many Irish fries (breakfasts) without one or both. Recipes are passed down through family lines and tweaks are added. Bread baking is a wonderful blend of tradition and experiment.

Good Craic stocks a wide range of Irish souvenirs including many items you may not see elsewhere. I cherry pick the very coolest items from the various suppliers. The shop is eclectic and fun and definitely worth a visit if you are in the Mourne area. If a product doesn’t exist yet I might just create it myself.
