Search under way for foodie destinations
The Restaurants Association of Ireland is searching for the country's top 'Foodie Destinations'. Foodie Destinations celebrates Ireland's unique and wonderful food offerings and encourages local food tourism initiatives across the country.
The 2016 competition will see towns, villages, regions and communities from all over the country battle it out to be named Ireland's top destination for a foodie experience.
The winner will be a destination that actively promotes itself through joint promotional activities such as food festivals, gourmet trails or farmers' markets as well as great dining experiences for locals and visitors alike.
The 2016 Foodie destinations winner will have established a local producer/supplier network which is utilised and promoted by local businesses.
Plans for future growth and investment into the food and hospitality industry at a local level will also be taken into consideration. Applications will be accepted until Thursday, August 11, via an online form - http://goo.gl/forms/m7LQy7tXqU3R6sGw2
