    Embark on an amazing food adventure

    Seafood chowder by the fire in a wind-whipped coastal pub. Traditional Irish stew in the surrounds of an 18th century market. Afternoon tea in a castle overlooking a misty lough. Food in Ireland isn't just about the taste; it's about the place, the experience, the land and sea, and the people who created it.

    Food is an integral part of contemporary culture on the island of Ireland – from buzzing farmers' markets, to incredible local ingredients, craft brewing and distilling, and innovative chefs who celebrate the rich connection between place and plate – and it shows.

    The island is buzzing with incredible food experiences. Uncover the gourmet secrets of cities such as Dublin, Belfast and Cork in the company of expert food guides, cook up a supper you have just caught on the soft white sands of a Wild Atlantic Way beach, or delve into the deep traditions of Ireland's whiskey.

    What we have in Ireland is wonderful raw material. Our landscape is at the heart of what we create.

    Great natural produce

    With abundant oceans and fertile green fields, Ireland's landscape translates into great local ingredients and artisan produce.

    Farmers' markets are a great way to experience Irish food close-up. Here, busy stalls laden with artisan cheese, local charcuterie, beech-smoked Irish salmon, soda breads, grass-fed beef and mountain lamb reflect the richness and variety of our culinary traditions. It's a great place to sample the flavours, find out about the producers and meet local food heroes. Try the English Market in Cork, St George's Market in Belfast and the Temple Bar Food Market in Dublin for starters.

    To take your journey further, opt for a food trail or tour, led by knowledgeable guides who will give you the inside track on the diverse flavours around the island of Ireland.
