West Waterford Festival of Food is a Celebration of Food - from those who make it and those who prepare it, to those who enjoy it, there's something for everyone. Inspired by the fertile land & seas surrounding this West Waterford harbour town.
West Waterford Festival of Food is located in the gorgeous West Waterford harbour town of Dungarvan and is a magnet for food lovers, cooking and baking experts and anyone who simply loves eating and drinking.
A whole weekend of eating, drinking, and enjoying food awaits those who visit, along with understanding the origins of the food, where to find it, how to cook and enjoy it best. Very much a family friendly festival - there's something here for everyone. Participation is very much encouraged, with some advance homework required for the GIY, and 'Ready, Steady, Go' Chef Competitions for schoolchildren... but mostly it's about turning up and enjoying...
Enjoy 'Busanna Bia', food trails organised around the region to visit the local producers and sample their produce - from oysters to dairy via breadmaking. Forage on the shores or further inland, cook with your children, or watch the chef's who do it best... With free events jostling alongside ticketed ones you can go from a high-end dining experience courtesy of a Michelin-starred chef to picnicking or baking at a primary school. And of course one must enjoy the food itself - in established restaurants & café's, in pop-up venues or the fabulous Sunday Farmer's Market. The ever-popular Restaurant Trails ensure you get a taste of the town.. and a great night's entertainment guaranteed.
Just what we need on a lovely spring weekend - a Festival of Food.
