Sligo Food Trail launch will take place on Wednesday 6th April 2016 in the Model Sligo.
Sligo Food Trail is a brand new initiative drawing together more than 60 food-related highlights in County Sligo. It will be officially launched by well-known food writer and personality Aoife Carrigy, Chairperson of the Irish Food Writers’ Guild and a regular contributor to FOOD&WINE Magazine and the Irish Independent, on Wednesday 6th April at The Model, Sligo. We are also delighted to welcome our MC Eileen Magnier, RTE North West Correspondent, John Mulcahy, Head of Hospitality, Fáilte Ireland and President of Restaurant Association of Ireland and Chairman of Sligo Food Trail Anthony Gray. The gala event will showcase the very best of all things culinary in Sligo.
Sligo Food Trail members are an exciting mix of producers, markets, cafes, restaurants, craft beer, gastro pubs and accommodation. The trail will introduce visitors and locals alike to the blend of food and cultural experience on offer. The format of the trail is ‘dip in and out’ so visitors can map their own route and choose the cuisine they love best along or near the Wild Atlantic Way.
Information on Sligo Food Trail will be readily available through the website and an attractive printed map/brochure combination. The free map will be available in the Fáilte Ireland Tourist Information Offices. It will have full details of all members plus descriptions and booking details for the food experiences.
The project is funded by CEDRA, Dept. of Agriculture, Sligo County Council, LEO Sligo, Food Trail Members, Fáilte Ireland and Sligo Tourism Ltd.
