Burren Food Trail
We are proud winners of the European Destination of Excellence (EDEN) 2015 – Tourism and Local Gastronomy and Irish Restaurants Association Foodie Town 2015 title.
We invite you to join us & get involved in our Burren food story. We are passionate about our food, growing and producing it locally for you to enjoy. Burren Food Trail is more than a listing of quality food establishments in the area – it aims to uncover for you the path that your food takes from field to plate. You can decide for yourself how to follow the trail – stop at every point or else dip in and out along the way, according to your taste, interest and location.
The members of the Burren Food Trail are bound by their commitment to building a sustainable future for the region. Each of the featured restaurants offers a Burren Food Trail Signature Dish to
savour. Each member has achieved recognised quality awards and standards, and has also signed up to the Burren Food Trail Customer Promise: you will find staff who are knowledgeable about the regional food story, menus which state the source of local produce, information on local food events and markets as well as a commitment to maximise the use of local ingredients in all prepared food.

Burren Food Trail Mondays
Every single Monday from April through to October, a themed food event will take place in locations around the Burren. Why not try your hand at kayaking your way to a gourmet picnic on the Finnavarra peninsula followed by ice-cream at Linnalla Ice Cream Cafe? Deborah Evers of Clareville House Kitchen garden at Ballyvaughan MarketOr what about a leisurely afternoon tea at Burren Fine Wine & Foods followed by a guided stroll in the Rathborney Valley?
As these events highlight, the Burren Food Trail Mondays focuses not only on food, but also on the landscape that surrounds it. Each individual event represents a unique opportunity to combine good food with real, authentic interaction with the people who produced or prepared it, or indeed with the surrounding landscape and heritage.
The Burren Food Trail Mondays features a wide variety of different food providers, producers, visitor attractions and outdoor activities who have come together to provide a range of events.
