Burren Food Trail

European Destination of Excellence 2015 – Tourism and Local Gastronomy

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.

Burren Food Trail membersThe members of the Burren Food Trail are bound by their commitment to building a sustainable future for the region. Foodie Towns 2015Each 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.

Taste The Burren Events 2021

Don’t just visit The Burren, Taste it!

The Burren Food Trail members organise an annual series of events, taking place at unusual locations around the Burren. They are a celebration of local, wild and seasonal produce of the Burren, as well as a chance to meet the producers, mingle with local people and learn about the Burren way of life.

These events focus, 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, activities and heritage.

This year, our Burren Slow Food Festival took place on Facebook from April 29th to May 5th with food producers and chefs taking part in a series of online pairings  celebrating the fertile rock of the Burren. Later in the year, the 10th Burren Food Fayre will take place live (we hope!) on October Bank Holiday, which will involve food demonstrations from the producers and chefs of the Burren.

This events are supported by Clare Coco Festival Funding – With thanks to CCC_logo_with_text_eps_version (1)-page-001
