If you’re anything like us, you plan every holiday, staycation, day trip and weekend activity around food and mealtimes! We’re constantly on the hunt for new food experiences, so we’re delighted to see a new initiative from Good Food Ireland offering just that.
Good Food Ireland Experiences — a new online service available on the Good Food Ireland website — allows food lovers to browse experiences by date, destination or simply by the food experience they would like to explore. The site also allows users to book the experience directly and receive immediate confirmation.
Founder of Good Food Ireland, Margaret Jeffares said, “We realise that more and more Irish people care where their food comes from, not just for the local economic benefit but because it tastes so much better. With Good Food Ireland, we seek out those places, many off the beaten path, so people can discover them and enjoy. We have worked tirelessly with the best food producers and chefs in Ireland to carefully develop, inspect and bring to market food experiences which are now available on one platform, easily searched and navigated.”
Experiences are as diverse and varied as the food scene in Ireland. For food lovers looking for a new experience, try a hands-on bread-making course in Ballymaloe, enjoy foraging and lunch on an historic estate, dine with a local chef at a private lunch in Co. Donegal or collect a traditional Tipperary country picnic for two.
For those looking to take a road trip, you can explore many experiences broken down by your chosen route and destination such as the Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands, Northern Ireland and more.
Looking to entertain the little ones over the summer holidays? How about making your own chocolate bar in Co. Clare; embarking on a blackcurrant and horse breeding farm tour in Co. Wexford; learning to make goat’s cheese on a family farm in Co. Cork; or getting the kids buzzed about beekeeping in Co. Galway. The options are endless and the experiences
are promised to be unforgettable — a real authentic Irish food and drink experience is guaranteed by Good Food Ireland.
Good Food Ireland is a network that directs food lovers around the island to great food places from restaurants, pubs and cafés, to good food places to stay and much more. Users will experience local Irish food, meet the people behind the food and learn about Ireland’s
culinary culture. Now with new food and drink experiences online, visitors can simply explore, choose and book directly.
Margaret goes on to say, “We aim to expand the range within our collection over the coming weeks as we discover new best-in-class experiences around the island.”
