Foodie Towns of Ireland 2014

The Restaurants Association of Ireland, in conjunction with Admailer.ie from An Post, are on the search for Ireland’s premier foodie destination. Ten towns/destinations from all over the country will battle it out to be named Ireland’s top town for a foodie experience.

The ‘Foodie Town of Ireland’ award will recognise a destination that actively promotes itself through joint promotional activities such as food festivals, gourmet trails or farmers’ markets as well as great dining experiences.  The winning Irish town will have established a local producer/supplier network which is utilised and promoted by local businesses. Plans for future growth and investment into the food and hospitality industry at a local level will also be taken into consideration by judges. Education, training, development and employment will be key components of the ultimate foodie destination.

The winning town will be crowned ‘Foodie Town 2014’ at the final of the Irish Restaurant Awards on June 9th and will receive a prize package worth €5,000 combining an Admailer.ie postcard marketing package and mentorship from senior An Post marketing executives to help raise the profile of their town. The nine runners up will each receive an Admailer.ie prize package to value of €500 each.

We are delighted to see that both Cork City and Kinsale are short-listed for the awards. Unfortunately you can only vote once!

The full Ten Foodie Town Finalists are: Cork City, Dingle, Galway City, Howth, Kilkenny, Kinsale, Lisdoonvarna. Loop Head, Sligo Town, Westport & Clew Bay.
