Typical Irish meal for 24 hour stay

Hello. I will be in Dublin for a 24 hour layover prior to my flight to Berlin. I've never been to Ireland and therefore excited for my brief visit. When I travel to other countries, I prefer to dine on the cuisine of that country. For example, if I visit Italy, I don't want Indian or Chinese food. Therefore, without sounding cliche, what is a typical Irish meal that I can enjoy during my visit. I love beer, and practically anything that is edible.

Additionally, I am staying near St. Stephen's Green so any recommendations for a not too expensive meal. Thank you.

Maybe the Connemara lamb has gone stale by the time it reaches Dublin?

Maybe Boots sell Wicklow lamb on a 3 for 2 offer.

Because only the best comes out of Co Wicklow of course. Everyone knows that. ;-)

Get a Full Irish breakfast and you needn't worry about food for a good few hours.. maybe a bowl of mussels mid day and a plate of Bacon and Colcannon of course being in Dublin you have to have a Boxty

Think the point might be that not many Irish can afford to eat Lamb on a regular basis any more.. Is Wicklow lamb sweet because they only eat Strawberries?? Connemara Lamb is of course sweet and tender because that's where God lives..
