About the Dingle Food Festival

Dingle Food and Wine Festival

This year, Dingle will host its tenth annual Food Festival. Founded in 2007, the Festival showcases the quality of the food that is locally produced and the warm welcome offered to those who choose to visit our beautiful Corca Dhuibhne.

The town voted Ireland's first Best Foodie Town, is renowned for its restaurants, most of which offer excellent local seafood. Once cited as ‘The most beautiful place on earth' by the National Geographic, Dingle was voted among the top 100 destinations in the world by Trip Advisor.

The Dingle Food Festival has grown steadily in popularity and is a food lover’s dream. Highlights of the festival include a Taste Trail in over 70 outlets, where festival goers can purchase taste tickets and sample local cuisine delights in locations that vary from pubs and galleries to shop and restaurants.

The Dingle Food Festival plays host to the annual Blas na hÉireann awards, now in their eigth year. These National Irish Food Awards were devised and are organised by the Festival. Blas na hÉireann highlight and celebrate the quality of the best Irish food producers and award gold, silver and bronze medals in different categories.

The festival takes place annually during the first weekend in October.

This year the dates are September, 30 - October 2 2016
