The countdown is on to the annual Dingle Food Festival and there the excitement is building throughout the town.
Taking place from Friday, 29th September to Sunday, 1st October Dingle comes alive with locals and tourists alike who come out to experience the wide-ranging culinary delights the festival provides. Many locals consider it “the best weekend of the year” as they relish the opportunity to treat themselves and unwind a little after the busy Summer season.
It’s an affordable way for people to be a little adventurous and have fun sampling many new and exciting tastes and flavours. The festival continues to go from strength to strength each year all thanks to a dedicated group of local people who make it all happen on a non profit making basis. It certainly has become one of the liveliest and fun-filled weekends of the year for both adults and children!
Highlights of the festival include cookery demonstrations in St. James’ Church, over 50 market stalls, workshops, street entertainment, children’s events, wine tasting and much more.
The most popular feature of the festival is “The Taste Trail” which provides a unique experience to taste the best food and drink the Peninsula has to offer in over 70 venues around the town. What better way to visit the many pubs, restaurants and galleries in town? Books of taste trail tickets can be purchased at several locations in Dingle at a very reasonable price.
Also incorporated into the festival is Blas na hEireann, the Irish Food Awards. The 2017 overall winners will be announced during the festival. An exciting line up of events for finalists from the whole of Ireland is planned to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the awards.
Dingle has been cited as “the most beautiful place on earth” by the National Geographic – the food festival is the perfect opportunity to visitors to come and experience the food, fun and beauty of the Dingle Peninsula.
