I love Ireland, but because we’re so far from the Emerald Isle, I like to treat friends and family to Irish treats whenever possible. This St. Patrick’s Day charcuterie board is the perfect treat to bring out on St. Paddy’s day, or any day! Loaded with easy-to-prepare treats, pass the Guinness and say sláinte!

Charcuterie boards, snack boards, grazing boards – there are many names for these larger-than-life platters that are loaded with tasty eats. Designed for nibbling, I love this St. Patrick’s Day board whenever we have family and friends over. It’s the perfect Irish grazing board! [Grab our BIG BOARD info below!]

St. Patrick’s Day Charcuterie Board

Loaded with all sorts of tasty nibbles, there’s something on this board for everyone. The best part is that there’s really not much cooking involved, so you can just pull items out of the fridge and pantry, load up the board, and serve.

ingredients for St. Patrick’s Day Charcuterie Board

Gather these ingredients

I serve this St. Patrick’s Day charcuterie board on my 12 x 24 Big Board, but you can use several platters or whatever you have for serving.

  • Corned beef – Sliced. Deli slices work well, or cook corned beef in advance and slice and serve it on the board.
  • Sauerkraut
  • Soda Bread – My Irish Brown Soda Bread would be perfect for this board!
  • Butter – You can spring for authentic Irish butter or use what you have. A sprinkle of parsley and sea salt on top will dress it up.
  • Potato chips – Love a crunchy element on a snack board.
  • Mustard – Brown mustard is my first pick.
  • Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate bar – Did you know this is made in Ireland with milk from Irish cows? Can’t get more Irish than this!
  • Cucumbers – Sliced. Must have some fresh elements on the board.
  • Gherkins – They’re small and cute and green!
  • Dubliner Cheese – This is authentic Irish cheese. Slice some and cube some for easy snacking.
  • Pretzels – Maybe not Irish, but soft pretzels go so well with dip!
  • Green pepper filled with dip – Use your favorite store-bought dip or try my Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip.
  • Salami-wrapped cheese sticks – You can buy them or make them yourself.

How to make a St. Patrick’s Day Snack Board

Ready for the fun part? Assembling a snack board is so easy and so much fun!

  1. Slice the top off of a green pepper and scoop out the seeds. If it won’t stand up properly, trim a bit off the bottom of the pepper, so it stands up. Fill the pepper with your favorite dip and set it on the board.
  2. Fill small bowls with the potato chips, pickles, sauerkraut, mustard, and butter and set them around the board.
  3. Lay the large pretzels down the center of the board.
  4. Fan out the sliced cucumber, corned beef, and bread. 
  5. Fill in the open areas of the board with the chocolate, salami rolls, and sliced and cubed cheese.
  6. Garnish the board with sprigs of parsley.
  7. Have small snack plates nearby so people can fill plates with munchies, but they can also make mini corned beef sandwiches with the ingredients on the board.
  8. Dig in!

Tips & substitutions

  • Filling a charcuterie board isn’t hard and doesn’t take long, but you can shave some time off the last-minute setup by prepping the pepper and dip, filling the small bowls, and slicing the bread, cheeses, and meats ahead of time.
  • Add whatever you like to the snack board! Other tasty picks that keep with the Irish theme include: other veggies like celery and whole sugar snap peas for dip dunking, green (and red) grapes, shortbread cookies, and more. Use your imagination!
  • If you think your guests will make little sandwiches, have some slider buns on hand.
  • Serve Irish drinks along with your board! Guinness beer and Bailey’s are Irish and fabulous!

Storage

Pack up any uneaten goodies and put them back into their packaging or jars or wrap them tightly and store them in the fridge for 3-4 days. Somehow, I don’t think you’ll have much left over!
