"Home," she smiled. "And one thing I will say about Ireland, we don’t eat boiled cabbage, and what’s that thing that everyone eats here for St. Patrick’s Day? Corned beef? We don’t have that. That stopped in 1743. Past. We don’t do that — so don’t eat that for St. Patrick’s Day."

"Second in the world to Ireland, really," she said. "It’s like a poor cousin, but it’s like a cool poor cousin. Like a poor cousin you’d like to hang out with, but not eat any of their food because it’s just weird. They fry everything — Mars Bars, pizzas, seriously."

Catch Caitriona in new episodes of Outlander, starting April 4 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Starz.
