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. 

EDEN Award logoWe 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.
