The Restaurants Association of Ireland named the Burren as the winner of Foodie Towns 2015. After a rigorous application process including, town visits and near to 9,000 online votes, The Burren beat the competition and proved themselves to be an excellent leader as a foodie destination. From bustling farmers markets to innovative strategies for growth and development, they set the benchmark for food tourism in Ireland. "It was so encouraging to see the high standard of applications for this year's Foodie Towns competition – to reach the Top 10 alone was a real achievement for each of these destinations, given the competitive calibre. But what made The Burren stand out as exemplary was the comprehensiveness of their food offering from field – or in their case, fertile rock – through to fork. Food-loving tourists to The Burren are in for an intriguing treat." – Aoife Carrigy, Chairperson, IFWG read more
