Ireland’s Food Festival Calendar

Food culture in Ireland, it’s not what we’ve always been known for, but we have, as a matter of fact, some of the finest gourmet and artisanal suppliers around, not to mention that (being a small island) some of the freshest catches on the go. It’s no suprise that Irish food festivals are becoming more popular as event organisers take advantage of the island’s wonderful produce.

We have a list of all the Popular Food and Drink Events happening in 2020.
