Top 10 ‘Foodie town’ finalists announced

The Restaurants Association of Ireland has announced its top 10 finalists in the ‘Foodie Towns’ competition 2015.

In the search for Ireland’s premier food destination, applications from all over the country were thoroughly assessed and narrowed down by an independent panel of judges.

There was some tough competition this year, but based on the applications received, the top 10 ‘Foodie Towns’ in 2015 are:

 

Boyne Valley
Derry
Dungarvan
Howth
Kilkenny
Kinsale
Loop Head Peninsula
Sligo
The Burren
West Cork

 

Each of the finalists will now receive a pre-arranged visit by a pair of independent assessors in the coming weeks. This will be combined with a national public voting campaign where the public choose their winning foodie destination out of the 10 finalists – it can be done through www.foodietowns.ie. Both components will carry equal weight in the overall score.

The winning town/destination will be crowned Foodie Town of Ireland 2015in October.
