This Irish cuisine is rather simple. It has lots of salty flavours, fragrant, just-cut herbs, and some of the finest meat the world has to offer.
2) The first commercial burgers
Edward Abbott was the first person to make a commercial burger. In 1885, he created Ireland’s first ever ‘burger’ at his restaurant at Lucan Fair Green, Co. Dublin. He sold his famous ‘Abbot Burgers’ for one shilling each at the fair which ran from 8th August until 13th September 1886 – with all proceeds going towards building St Mark’s Church of Ireland church hall.
3) The ‘hamburg’ is an Irish invention
Hamburg has its origins in Hamburg, Germany – hence its name. In Ireland, butchers began selling ‘hamburg’ in 1876 and were soon such a hit that they have now become an iconic part of any self-respecting Irish pub.
