Taste the Island - A Foodie Celebration
Taste the Island – A Celebration of Our Food and Drink is a hugely exciting partnership project between Tourism Ireland, Tourism Northern Ireland and Fáilte Ireland. It is designed to provide visitors with access to authentic food and drink, high quality local ingredients and world class food and drink experiences. It is the inaugural year of the celebration of our food and drink culture, taking place across September, October and November 2019.
In recent years, Northern Ireland has made significant strides in strengthening the breadth and quality of our food and drink offer. The Taste the Island Initiative will build on the success of the Northern Ireland Year of Food and Drink 2016 and Northern Ireland’s ‘Best Food Destination’ accolade at the International Travel and Tourism Awards in November 2018. The overall ambition for this project is to drive economic benefit by extending the season, encouraging regional spread of visitors with a call to action to increase the perception visitors have of local food and drink produce
