12 Days of Christmas Recipes | Kingstown House Homemade Baileys Liquor Recipe

Kingstown House Bed and BreakfastWe're into the third day of our 12 Days Christmas Recipes and the recipes are just getting tastier by the day! Yesterday we had a wonderful Guinness Cake from Eileen in Limerick so we thought we would need something a little stronger to compliment that delicious stout cake. So we're keeping West and venturing to Kingstown House in the rural setting of Connemara in Galway to try Jim and Regina Hopkins' Homemade Baileys Liquor Recipe.


  • 1 - 397grams/14 oz tin of Carnation's Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 250 ml of Single Cream
  • 250 ml of Irish Whiskey
  • 3 Tablespoons of Chocolate Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon of instant coffee granules
  • 1 table spoon of Vanilla Extract


  1. Combine all ingredients into blender.

  2. Blend for approximately 30 seconds

  3. Place in clean sterilized bottle and store in refrigerator overnight (try to make before you need so it will cool and thicken  overnight, which seems to greatly improve to taste and consistency.)

We made for family and friends recently. The Baileys will keep in a refrigerator for a month, however we find it is best to completely use within 1-2 weeks. Other uses include: pouring over ice cream as a topping and putting in coffee (that would be at the end of the day.)

We'd like to thank Regina and Jim for taking the time to send us in this delicious Christmas recipe and wish you all a Merry Christmas! Make sure to check out Kingstown House Bed and Breakfast.

Danabel Porridge Bread Recipe

I started making my Porridge Bread about a year ago. It was so popular with guests that I carried on making it. Now, I make it everyday and leave it on the breakfast table for my guests to help themselves. I am always complimented on how tasty it is. The wonderful thing about this recipe is that it is so easy to prepare, yet so delicious!
