there's something special about how food tastes here
Some say it’s where we’re located in Ireland. Our food seems to flourish in Waterford’s rich soil and sandy shores protected by the mountains and nurtured by the sea breeze and mild climate.
But it’s not just our location that helps make our food taste great.
Waterford has always been a place of firsts; the first teas, the first wines and spices first reached our shores through the invaders and traders who came to Waterford through our Port; once one of the busiest trading Ports in Europe. It is this rich history of food and openness to the world that has been blended with fresh local ingredients and dishes over time to make up the exciting range of food that’s available in Waterford today.
From Comeragh lamb to Blaas and Blaager – come and join us to experience ‘Food the Waterford Way’. Meet the many makers on your journey who will share their stories of how their recipes, craft and family secrets have been passed down from generation to generation’.
"From the mountains to the sea, lush pastures alongside rivers, along the
Greenway, on busy city streets or quiet quaysides, enjoy our Food,
the Waterford Way."
Meet the people who harvest and make our food and drink. See where their families have crafted food for generations, or hear how they were inspired to begin their own stories. Some you can meet every day in their cafés or shops, while others have set aside a time for you to visit, or asked that you get in touch to arrange.
