Locally produced, sustainably grown and 100% delicious
The fertile valleys of the Burren have long been known for their quality food produce. In recent years, this food tradition has expanded through the emergence of many award-winning chef-led restaurants and high quality artisan food producers, as well as an increase in practising market gardeners and growers.
There are a number of ways for visitors to engage with the Burren Food Story. Select your own highlights from the Burren Food Trail which features a range of restaurants, eateries, food producers and farmer’s markets, each of whom has achieved defined food quality standards. Or make the most of your visit by taking in one of the many special food events that take place on a weekly basis throughout the year.
What about a summer solstice twilight supper, a cosy evening of cheese, wine and story-telling, a kayaking picnic, a vegetarian harvest banquet – The Burren Weekly Food Series offers all this and more. Taking part in a festival is a great way to experience the spirit and culture of the Burren – for food lovers, the Burren Slow Food Festival in May and the Burren Winterage Food Fayre in October are not to be missed!
