Food is putting place on a plate, and is driving tourism like never before

In response to the greater emphasis our international visitors place on food as part of their overall holiday experience and with visitors to Ireland spending some €2billion on food a year, local food has an unmatched ability to connect them with the heritage and culture of a region, the soul of its people and the rhythm of daily life. 

Fáilte Ireland and Taste Cork are holding a networking workshop exploring the current approach to Food Tourism in the North Cork area and how collective collaboration can assist destinations in gaining a competitive advantage. The session will provide actionable insights around Ireland’s leading food destinations and practical tips on how to leverage Ireland’s Ancient East in order to drive growth.

 Workshop Content:

  • A united approach to Food Tourism – how to stand out in the Food Tourism landscape.
  • The growing expectations of visitors around food experiences.
  • Tips on how to leverage Ireland’s Ancient East to promote and deliver a connected food proposition.
