Dingle Food Festival

This years festival will include series of cookery demonstrations, a food market, wine tastings, food related workshops , a foraging walk and much more!

A highlight of the festival include a taste trail in over 50 outlets, where festival goers can purchase taste tickets and sample local cuisine delights in locations that vary from pubs, and galleries to shop and restaurants.

A key part of the festival is an open conference on a food related topic. In previous years they have used this as a vehicle to explore and promote the greater use of local produce and to encourage local farmers to diversify into growing for the local tourist market. This year’s they want to extend that thinking to include the local fishing industry, see this as having considerable potential both for the tourism industry and as a means of securing and increasing employment in the indigenous fishing industry.
