According to research from Baileys, 65% of Irish people admit that dessert makes an evening more fun. But, not everyone is treating themselves in the way that they should. Because apparently, only 20% of people said that they always choose dessert ahead of the bill at the end of the meal. So not enough of us are enjoying glorious Baileys desserts.
Ah now, that's just not on. So, we are here to inspire you.
You'll have to add these seven venues around the island of Ireland to your bucket list. Because they will be serving exclusive (and gorgeous) Baileys desserts around the Christmas season.
