Taste the Island - A Celebration of Ireland's Food and Drink

“We know that our food and drink experiences are world class, now we want everyone else to know too.”

Tourism Northern Ireland are excited to announce their involvement in Taste the Island- A Celebration of Ireland’s Food and Drink.  The initiative is an eight week showcase of our fabulous food and drink which will run from Mid- September to Mid- November 2019.

2019 will be the first of a three-year commitment, delivered in conjunction with our partners at Tourism Ireland and Failte Ireland.  The timing of the 8 week programme will build on the success of the 2016 Year of Food and Drink and coincides as we celebrate Northern Ireland winning ‘Best Food Destination’ at the International Travel and Tourism Awards 2018/19.

Tourism NI will shortly communicate a series of industry information sessions that will take place in May and early June, targeted towards businesses and individuals interested in providing tourists with a food or drink experience.
