Welcome and thank you for visiting us!
A little bit of background on the developing brand of Irish Dining. The Irish food story is growing in strength, every day there are new restaurants making bold strides with local produce cooked and presented in distinctive Irish fashions.
Let’s face it everyone loves the Irish but for many, they are assuming, wrongly that the food is nothing to write home about on our island. Failte Ireland has conducted lots of research and visitors overwhelmingly say they love the food when they get here. We, however, need people to know before they book their holidays that not only will they get fantastic historical sites, music, craic, architecture etc but also culinary treats.
In response to this Failte Ireland began the #tastetheisland initiative, encouraging businesses to promote events around food, see failteireland.ie/tastetheisland for details.
The goal of this particular website is to list all the best restaurants in County Clare of which there are many, but to do so with local knowledge!
We started by setting up a Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/clarerestaurants asking people to share their favorite restaurants in the County. It’s a work in progress but we are thrilled with the response to date.
The plan is to work the Country, County by County, lots of work, but we are hoping to have the definitive listings from the locals in the County, to be fair who knows better!
Counties coming up next on the schedule are as follows:
