Definition: A full Irish breakfast is the traditional breakfast in Ireland. It is usually served at breakfast time, but it is also popular at other times, sometimes to replace lunch. Rarely is it now served every day of the week, reserved instead for the weekend or on vacation in hotels and Bed and Breakfasts, where no stay would be complete without one.

A full Irish breakfast also has the main components of bacon and eggs, tea , toast and marmalade but there are also two important ingredients - White Pudding and Soda Bread - to differentiate it from the others.
