Good Food Ireland Launch New Food Travel Experiences

Looking for new ways to fill weekends? Good Food Ireland has launched Good Food Ireland Experiences – enabling people to experience Ireland’s food and drink offering first hand.

The new online service available on the Good Food Ireland ​website allows food lovers to browse by date, destination or simply by the food experience they would like to explore. The site also allows users to book what they would like directly and receive immediate confirmation.

Founder of Good Food Ireland, Margaret Jeffares (pictured) said in a statement: “​Our new experiences allow locals to discover food activities around Ireland, many on their own doorstep. We realise that more and more Irish people care where their food comes from. Now they have the opportunity to find out the story behind that food.”

“With Good Food Ireland we seek out the best places for food and drink in the country, many off the beaten path. Our new offering then allows people to easily discover and enjoy them. We have worked tirelessly with the best food producers and chefs in Ireland to carefully develop, inspect and bring to market food experiences which are now available on one platform to easily search and book”.

Options are as diverse and varied as the food scene in Ireland. Those looking for a real Irish food experience can try ​hands-on bread-making in Ballymaloe​, forage and lunch in a historic house estate​ in Co Cork, ​dine with a local chef at a private lunch​ in Co Donegal,​ or collect and enjoy a traditional Tipperary country picnic for two​. For a road trip this summer, explore a range of experiences broken down by a chosen route and destination such as the ​Wild Atlantic Way​, Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands​, ​Northern Ireland ​and more.

Families looking to entertain the kids throughout the holidays can ​make their own chocolate bar ​in Co Clare, visit a ​blackcurrant and horse breeding farm tour​ in Co Wexford, try ​goat cheese making on a family farm​ in Co Cork, or get the kids buzzed about ​bee-keeping​ in Co Galway. The options are endless and the experiences are promised to be unforgettable.

Good Food Ireland is a network that directs food lovers around the island to great restaurants, pubs and cafés, as well as good food places to stay and more. Users will meet the people behind the food and learn about Ireland’s culinary culture.

Jeffares goes on to say: “​We aim to expand the range within our collection over the coming weeks as we discover new best-in-class experiences around the island. Over the last fourteen years our customers have come to trust Good Food Ireland knowing that they will get a genuine authentic experience from passionate, like-minded people and places committed to using local produce.”

“This is why we have standards. Only those businesses that are assessed, based on strict published criteria around the provenance of their food and excellence of their product, join the Good Food Ireland Collection.”
