West Waterford Food Festivities

Celebrating its 7th year, the West Waterford Festival of Food returns from Thursday the 10-13 of April, bringing more food, fun and fine flavours to the sunny South East. The pretty coastal town of Dungarvan will play host to some of the best chefs, food producers and food stalls.

The town is also the backdrop to the annual, hugely popular 'Restaurant Trails', and will this year be animated too by a fascinating series of intimate, informal talks about food called ‘Talking Food’.

This year sees the hugely popular 'Farmer’s Market' take place over two days, with a smaller market in the main square on Saturday the 12th as well as the showpiece Sunday market, one of the largest artisan food markets on the island. Another exciting focus of this year’s event will be 'Seafood Saturday - Cois Cé', an invitation to experience all that the Waterford coastline has to offer, from fresh seafood to on-the-water events for those brave enough to take on the challenge. This quayside day of events will showcase sailing, swimming and fishing, the perfect way to work up an appetite, which will then be easily satisfied by the spectacular selection of fresh seafood, cooked and served up Cois Cé for that perfect festival feel. The ‘Talking Food’ series of relaxed and engaging talks, discussions and in conversations is a great opportunity to embrace the sociable and interesting nature of the West Waterford Festival of Food – you never know who you might bump in to when you stroll through the bustling streets of Dungarvan, pop in to a busy local pub or unpack your picnic in Walton Park.
