The English Market is Ireland's most famous covered food market, and is heaven for anyone who loves food. You can wander the market and ogle the fresh fish piled up in shining stacks, or the colorful iced pastries, or the sausages or the cheese or the organic fruit or the olives or oatmal or pasta. Etc, I bought a corned beef and cheddar cheese sandwich and ginger beer at The Sandwich Stall and a bakewell at M.K. Cakes and took it all outside to a park across the street. There, I sat on a bench and ate it. Come with a lot of time to wander, and come hungry.
