Food is fresh...land of plenty
To discover really amazing food, you need to start at the very beginning. The freshness of the natural produce here has made the island one of the most talked-about food destinations in Europe, with an emphasis on delicious cheese, grass fed beef and lamb and fresh-off-the-boat seafood.
The endless green fields, deep valleys and abundant waters which surround us, have created sensational natural flavours that others only dream of.
Ireland’s food boasts an impeccable provenance and can be best enjoyed in local pubs, Michelin restaurants and spectacular food trucks.
When your larder is stocked with the most amazing natural, it’s hardly surprising that the islands best chefs make full use of the great produce on their doorstep. Whether you’re dining in an esteemed Michelin-starred restaurant or a top gastro pub, you’ll find homegrown ingredients dominating the menus.
Excellent country house hotels with their own herds and vast gardens create menus with most of your meal travelling less than a few miles.

Taste the freshness
Savour decadent Afternoon Tea
Tradition and elegance
The tradition of 'taking tea' started in the 19th Century as a way to banish that 'sinking feeling' one experiences mid-afternoon. Whilst its a quintessentially British tradition, we were part of the British Empire for long enough to lean a few things about it and bring an Irish flavour to the experience.
Everyone should experience Afternoon Tea at least once.
There are lots of great locations to experience it right across the Island of Ireland.

Find your Flavour
When your clients visits we will take them to our favourite places in Ireland to experience, fabulous food and drink, passionately created by people who rear, make, cook, and distill the very finest produce.
Visit a 250-year-old oyster cottage at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean in County Galway. Try amazing ice cream in Dingle, handmade with the finest fresh farm milk and local cream. Just imagine the taste of Caramelised brown bread Ice Cream or Irish coffee Ice Cream. Take a fishing trip on the Atlantic with Butter-coloured sands, turquoise waters dotted with lots of islands as your backdrop. Enjoy Afternoon with a Lord.
Or just sit in a relaxing pub and feast.
Only Irish coffee provides in a single glass, all four essential food groups: alcohol, caffeine, sugar and fat.
Irish soda bread is the perfect pairing for many dishes, including a hearty Irish Stew, Seafood Chowder or smoked salmon, but is equally
as tasty on its own with a dollop of butter or jam.
We have all tasted great food and wondered how the amazing flavours are created. We all love to know how to recreate them at home or to understand how the food we eat is produced.
We connect the producers with your guest so they can experience first hand, how their food is created. It's an incredibly immersive experience to meet the farmer, fisherman, cheese maker or smoker who produce amazing artisan foods.
