The Emerald Isle

Explore the Culinary Traditions

For baking enthusiasts, plan a visit to two cookery schools on the island—one new school in Northern Ireland, Tracey’s Farmhouse Kitchen, and a decades-old, award-winning institution in County Cork, Ballymaloe Cookery School. Both offer an immersive, intimate taste of their island. You may not be able to visit right now, but take a look at the beautiful photography, recipes, and memories from our sister publication, Bake from Scratch, to start planning your future getaway in Ireland. For details on this and more, go to
