What are food prices in Ireland and Scotland?

Jump to last reply

Another plea for help! In Ireland we are a family of 4 with two children ages 10 and 12. In Scotland we will be a family of 5 with 3 children including an 18 year old as well. My husband and I are trying to write up a tentative budget for our holiday this July of 2008. We have been able to book all of the accommo's to get our prices,as well as car rental, airplanes, ferry tickets, gas, and get an idea what attractions will cost. But...we have no idea what kind of food will be the most economical. We did buy the book 'Scotland's Best' by Peter Irvine that gives you the name of places and approx. prices. What I want to know are where do families typically eat? Pubs? What type of food is standard? Are there healthy choices? We are looking for the cultural experience, but prefer not to eat expensive, so we have more money for attractions etc. If pizza is the quick, cheap, inexpensive food of Italy...what is the food comprable for Ireland and Scotland? And what is a feasible budget for lunch and dinners as breakfast is covered in the B&Bs we are staying in.

Thanks, Reggs
