Kilkenny Food Trail
Kilkenny Food Trail
Taste Of Kilkenny
TASTE of Kilkenny is a new project established to promote an awareness of local food producers and the food outlets, cafes and restaurants that support such businesses. The aim is to encourage a broader consciousness of the processes involved before our food reaches our plate. By creating a food trail, TASTE of Kilkenny hopes to draw attention to the rich variety of delicacies available within the county and to break the perception that good food has to be expensive food.
Whether it be artisan cheese-makers, farmers, small-holders or fine restaurants, all of the members within are committed to delivering a high quality product using mainly traditional methods and remaining as organic as possible whilst highlighting the potential of the county as a leader in high quality produce.
TASTE of Kilkenny invites you to use this trail to discover the countryside farms and city restaurants where you can sample their goods, whether you are local to the area or are visiting on holiday. Please use this guide to contact the members directly who will be happy to cater for your needs. We hope that the trail will help enrich the dining experience in the county, both at home and eating out.
The Taste of Kilkenny Food Trail is, at it’s heart, grounded in the traditions and people of the county. Trail Kilkenny is delighted to offer visitors a chance to experience the rich and varied food culture of County Kilkenny. Created by the food producers and restaurants of the county, the food trail has 38 participants entities. This collection forms a truly inspiring attraction for Kilkenny.
