A Taste of West Cork Food Festival is a celebration of all that is unique about the area - the world class food, the makers of this food, and the art and craft made in the area.

A Taste of West Cork Food Festival is so much more than just a festival about food. It is a celebration of West Cork, and all that makes this area so unique. Running over a ten day period, the festival programme includes daily workshops, historic and scenic walks, farm tours, home visits to the producers, themed restaurant evenings, art and craft exhibitions, food tastings, music recitals, theatre evenings, starlight kayaking, whale watching and so much more.

This year the focus of the festival is guest chefs. All local restaurants will host a guest chef preparing a speciality meal for one night only. The festival finale is the iconic Street Market on Sunday, 12 September, which takes place in the heart of the artisan food producing area of West Cork - Skibbereen. A Taste of West Cork proudly promotes West Cork as a tourist destination and jewel along the Wild Atlantic Way.
