Fáilte Ireland's Latest 'Taste The Island' Workshop Takes Place At Kilronan Castle

Fáilte Ireland held its latest "Taste the Island" workshop in Kilronan Castle of Co. Roscommon last week.

The "Taste the Island" initiative was developed by Fáilte Ireland in collaboration with Tourism Ireland, Tourism Northern Ireland and a range of stakeholders in response to a growing global interest in food and drink.

"World Class"

Speaking about the workshop held in Kilronan Castle, Fáilte Ireland’s food tourism - strategy and programmes manager, Tracey Coughlan, said, "The range and quality of food and drink businesses that we met at the workshop [in Kilronan Castle] are really world class and have the potential to drive a lot more tourists to this area. We know that there is scope for growth around food and drink for tourists, and aligned with our world-famous seascapes and landscapes, we have an incredibly strong offering to motivate tourists to visit here."

"A Wonderful Project"

Meanwhile, Kilronan Castle's sales and marketing manager, Samantha Keeling, commented, "The 'Taste the Island' initiative is hugely instrumental in showcasing the range of high quality food and drink which Ireland has to offer. It could not come at a better time, and at Kilronan Castle, we are delighted to be part of such a wonderful project. We are immensely proud of all the local food and beverage producers that we use and are delighted to see them getting a stage to display their true unique selling points on."
