The town has 52 (count them!) restaurants, cafés and other places to eat serving dishes made from the finest of local ingredients including fish freshly landed at Dingle Pier, meats such as the lamb raised on the Great Blasket Island, locally-made cheeses, black puddings, chocolates and even locally-brewed beers.
The streets are lined with fantastic food shops selling local and Irish cheeses as well as cheeses from all over Europe, award-winning ice cream and wonderful healthful foods.
Every Friday, the town hosts a farmers' market (to which I returned last Friday but more on that anon).
And early every October, there is the not-to-be-missed Dingle Food Festival.
With all of this and more, surely Dingle has to rank as THE Foodie Town of Ireland? To make it official, vote here
The Restaurants Association of Ireland, in association with AdMailer.ie from An Post, are on the search for Ireland’s premier foodie destination. Let them know that you've found it in Dingle by voting here before Sunday, May 18th.
|Dingle: there's no place quite like it|
Addendum number two: just in case you missed it: we won! It's now official. Dingle is THE foodie town of Ireland - at least for 2014!
