The world famous Burren Smokehouse in the heart of the town, Fabiola’s Patisserie, Kieran’s Kitchen in the Roadside Tavern, Sheedy’s Hotel and The Wild Honey Inn  with theeir AA-Rosettes for Food and Ireland’s  first ever pub to win a Bib Gourmand, the list goes on.

What defines Lisdoonvarna as a food destination is the cooperation between the food enterprises themselves and in turn between them and the wider community.

The applicant businesses are formally linked with each other in co-operative partnerships on two key levels: they are members of the Burren Ecotourism Network and they are founder members of the Burren Food Trail.carrageen blancmangeeva hegartys display

Some one described it as like being on Dragon’s Den, the questions, the depth of info.required, but we had longer to wait for these judges to tell us our fate, the decision is due at a lavish affair in Dublin on Monday eve.the 9th.June.

We did our best, I think the photographs echo that.
