Food Events & Irish Food Festivals

Borrowing from a list I originally maintained at, here’s some Irish food events and food festival dates happening in 2017. You may have landed here thanks to some search engine trickery I’ve got in place. If you were browsing through Any Given Food, you’re most welcome here.

This list last updated on 3 January 2017.

Got an event to submit for 2017? Email or give me a shout here.

This list is by no means indicative of every food event happening in Ireland up to the end of December 2017. If there’s an event you would like to add, you can email or jump over to the contact form here to submit your details.
