Kara was pleasantly surprised about how easy it was to go gluten free. She said it was even easier there than it is in the states. It was also cheaper there and tasted better.
Some of the things that they ate:

How easy was it to find food in Ireland?:

Since Ireland has a large population of Gluten-intolerant people, it is much easier to find restaurants, bakeries and pubs that will accommodate for this. On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the easiest, Kara said the ease of finding great-quality gluten-free food was a 10!

What was your favorite Gluten-free food you ate in Ireland?:

Kara said that the pizza was awesome. She also loved the breakfast she had at the Lough Owell Lodge in Westmeath.

What was Kara's impression of Ireland?:

Kara was amazed by the history of Ireland. Seeing the castles and ancient cairns were stunning.

Murphy's Ice Cream:

If you go to Ireland, you can't visit without trying Murphy's Ice Cream. Kara said that after having Murphy's Ice Cream, it was hard to eat ice cream from anywhere else.

Closing remarks:

Kara said that you will not have a hard time at all sticking to a gluten-free diet in Ireland. Food was easy to find, better quality and in most cases cheaper than what is available in the United States.
