Ireland Booth Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

Ireland Booth Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

If you want to try one of the worst food and beverage items at this year’s Epcot Food and Wine Festival, head straight to the Ireland booth.

Before we talk about what you shouldn’t buy at Ireland, know you won’t be wasting your money on the Warm Chocolate Pudding Cake and Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale.

While they might not pair well together, they certainly taste delicious on their own. The cake is great for chocolate lovers and the beer has good flavor, while be also being light and tasty on a hot day.

Now, onto the not-so-good. The Bunratty Mead Honey Wine tastes like medicine. Why does this exist? We’re not sure how anyone can drink it.

And, then there is the Fisherman’s Seafood Pie. Who wants to eat a hot seafood pie when temperatures are over 100 degrees? Heather (who has a shellfish allergy) and Allyson (who is vegetarian) are thankful they never have to try this.

It’s safe to say Ireland did not make our favorite Food and Wine booths list (it never does).

When it comes to our reviews and ratings, we thought it would be helpful if you had a better understanding of our personal preferences (what we like and don’t like), along with if there are any dietary restrictions.

Here’s a breakdown of not only who is doing the reviews, but a little more information about what each of us likes and doesn’t like food and drink-wise.

Shannon (Founder)

Heather (Editor)

  • Likes: Strong flavors, anything made out of potatoes, white wines, all beers (especially stouts and wheat beers), doesn’t mind sweet (plain fruit is NOT a dessert. Ever.)

Photos & Reviews

Fisherman’s Seafood Pie

This is similar to a chicken pot pie, but with seafood.

Ireland Seafood Stew
  • Price: $7.00
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 2.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: I liked this more than I expected to. It is like a seafood version of a Shepherd’s Pie with mashed potatoes on top.
Felicia: I didn’t want to have to eat this and I immediately regretted putting it in my mouth. It’s fishy and mushy and just bleh.

Roasted Irish Sausage

Roasted Irish sausage with colcannon potatoes and onion gravy.

Ireland Sausages
  • Price: $5.75
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: It’s…fine. Not great texture on the sausage.
Heather: I don’t understand why the sauce was so … sweet? I wasn’t expecting it so when I put it in my mouth my brain got confused. The potatoes slapped, though.
Felicia: It’s an average sausage with a brown gravy that is a bit sweet for my liking. The potatoes are okay. Overall, not a very good dish. It’s fine though if you really like sausage and potatoes.

Warm Chocolate Pudding Cake

Warm chocolate pudding with an Irish Cream custard.

Ireland Cake
  • Price: $4.75
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 4.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Yum. Loved this. Warm, slightly sweet but not overly so.
Heather: The chocolate cake in this tastes just like the one my mom used to make. Am I giving this a 4 because I’m overly sentimental? Probably. But, the sauce on top is also delicious. Loved the flavor combos.
Felicia: This is okay. It’s not as sweet as I would have expected and doesn’t have much flavor. Wouldn’t recommend going out of your way to get it.
Allyson: I’m not a pudding fan, but this was really good. It also isn’t super heavy, which I appreciated.

Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale

The Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale is a Red Ale and Irish style beer brewed from the makers of Guinness.

Ireland Cream Ale
  • Price: $5.50 (6 oz.) / $9.50 (12 oz.)
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Light but kinda bland. Might be perfect for somebody who needs a refreshing drink.
Heather: I like my stouts to have a lot of flavor – and this just didn’t have a lot of flavor. Pretty disappointed, if I’m being honest.
Felicia: I liked this. Has the consistency and somewhat flavor of a stout, but not as heavy. It isn’t overly creamy but it’s good.
Allyson: Better than years past. It has food flavor.

Bunratty Mead Honey Wine

This Bunratty Mead Honey Wine is a traditional wine made of pure honey, fruit of the vine, and natural herbs. It’s a medium sweet wine.

Ireland Honey Mead
  • Price: $6.50
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 1.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Ohhhh no. Made the worst face after drinking it. Almost syrupy.
Heather: RETREAT! This is way too sweet for me. If you plan to sip it as a dessert wine, you’ll probably be ok but do not – I repeat DO NOT slam an entire glass. Trust me on this.
Felicia: This taste just like honey with a slight hint of alcohol. It’s very hard to drink and I would not recommended unless you know mead or honey wine is your thing.
Allyson: If I could give this a negative rating, I would. Avoid at all costs.

Guinness Baileys Shake

The Guinness Baileys Shake is a combination of Guinness beer and Baileys Irish Cream.

Ireland Shake
  • Price: $12.50
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 4.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Great portion, cute souvenir cup, alcohol not too strong.
Heather: Be warned that this is a dessert drink, so it’s gonna be heavy. BUT…my milkshake brings all the GUINNESS to the yard. Honestly couldn’t really taste the alcohol plus the glass is cute.
Felicia: This isn’t too thick or creamy and has a nice Baileys flavor. I don’t care for ice cream and this is more like an ice cream shake than I would care to drink. But I recognize that it is good for those looking for this.
Allyson: This was nice, light, and very tasty. I really enjoyed this.
