Cabbage and potatoes are traditional Irish staples, and this classic Irish dish uses both! We’ve selected this recipe because it’s simple, hearty, and pairs well with other Irish dishes you might enjoy on St. Patrick’s Day.
Irish beef stew is such a classic that we would be remiss not to include a recipe for it on this list. We selected this recipe because you can make it in a slow cooker. Since it doesn’t call for beer like many Irish stew recipes, you also don’t have to worry so much about cooking off the alcohol if you’re serving it to children.
Corned beef and cabbage is an Irish-American dish frequently served on St. Patrick’s Day. We like that this recipe doesn’t require much prep and cooks in a slow cooker, making it as convenient as it is hearty and satisfying.
Many traditional Irish dishes use a lot of meat. We’ve included this recipe in the list to help those who are avoiding meat get in on the holiday fun! This vegan shepherd’s pie includes some of the same flavors as more traditional recipes without any of the meat or dairy.
While this is not a traditional Irish dish, we’ve included it on the list because it would look so beautiful for St. Patrick’s Day. Since the vibrant salad looks a lot like a rainbow, even children might be eager to eat their vegetables.

Fast food shamrock shakes are popular this time of year, so you and/or your kids may be craving them. We like this recipe because it has the festive green color and minty flavor of the popular treat without dairy, refined sugar, artificial color, or additives.
