The "Full Irish Breakfast" is an amazing and large plate of food. Our hotel, the O'Callaghan Davenport, offered a buffet. Clockwise from the left: beans, tomatoes, sausage, Irish bacon, mushrooms, sunnyside up eggs. I had already eaten the white and black puddings.
The eggs were small, with brightly colored yolks and were very tasty. The bacon was meaty, not fatty. Plus a whole tray of toast (the brown bread was delicious). Who could eat that much? We couldn't, not every day. One morning I just had porridge (granted, I had the stomach trouble the night before so porridge was a good thing).
We had a "vegetarian" version at the airport on our way home (no meat, but lots more veggies and potatoes too)...and as they dished up my plate, I turned to the Handy Husband and pleaded, "can't you share this with me? I can't eat all this." He did. He seemed to be satisfied with his larger half.
