A showcase of the fine artisan produce available in West Cork with organic farm tours, food tasting, open air markets, interactive workshops, cooking demos, sea shore foraging, historical tours and more.

A Taste of West Cork Festival is a premier showcase event which encompasses the entire food producing community in West Cork. West Cork is traditionally a farming and fishing community dotted with small market towns and a number of fishing villages. West Cork has long been a sought after destination for tourists, now this region has a proud reputation for producing some of the best artisan food in Ireland.

With the festival programme including tours to organic farms, food tasting, open air markets, interactive workshops, cooking demonstrations, sea shore foraging, historical tours of the town, award winning restaurants offering themed evenings, A Taste of West Cork Festival is fast becoming a not to be missed event in the international food calendar.

Based in the heart of picturesque West Cork, the town of Skibbereen is situated on the banks of the Ilen River and close to the dramatic rugged Atlantic coast line - an ideal location from which to explore the surrounding scenic countryside and participate in the tours and events that will take place during the festival.

Steeped in history and culture, there is no better time than during the food festival to experience first-hand the hospitality, good food and a warm Irish welcome that West Cork offers.
