The Burren Food Trail – winners of the “European Destination of Excellence – Tourism and Local Gastronomy” (EDEN) award for developing a tourism offering based on their local gastronomy that balances sustaining the local environment with the promotion of viable tourism.

The members of the Burren Food Trail invite you to join them & get involved in their Burren food story. They are passionate about their food, growing and producing it locally for you to enjoy.  The Burren food Trail is more than a listing of quality food establishments in the area – it aims to uncover for you the path that your food takes from field to plate. You can decide for yourself how to follow the trail – stop at every point or else dip in and out along the way, according to your taste, interest and location.
