For anyone planning a ‘staycation’ or simply looking for new ways to fill weekends, Good Food Ireland has launched a new dimension to their offering – Good Food Ireland Experiences. The new online service available on the Good Food Ireland website allows food lovers to browse experiences by date, destination or simply by the food experience they would like to explore. The site also allows users to book the experience or series of experiences directly and receive immediate confirmation.
Founder of Good Food Ireland, Margaret Jeffares said, “We realise that more and more Irish people care where their food comes from, not just for the local economic benefit but because it tastes so much better. With Good Food Ireland we seek out those places, many off the beaten path, so people can discover them and enjoy. We have worked tirelessly with the best food producers and chefs in Ireland to carefully develop, inspect and bring to market food experiences which are now available on one platform, easily searched and navigated by various criteria”.
Experiences are as diverse and varied as the food scene in Ireland. For food lovers looking for a new experience, Hands-On Bread-Making in Ballymaloe, Foraging and Lunch in Historic House Estate, Dine with a Local Chef at a Private Lunch in Co Donegal or how about collecting a Traditional Tipperary Country Picnic for Two? For those looking to take a road trip you can explore many experiences broken down by your chosen route and destination such as Wild Atlantic Way, Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands, Northern Ireland plus more.
For families looking to entertain the kids throughout school holidays how about Make Your Own Chocolate Bar in County Clare, Blackcurrant and Horse Breeding Farm Tour in County Wexford or Goat Cheesemaking on a Family Farm in County Cork, or get the kids buzzed about Bee-Keeping in County Galway. The options are endless and the experiences are promised to be unforgettable – a real authentic Irish food & drink experience is guaranteed by Good Food Ireland.
Good Food Ireland is a network that directs food lovers around the island to great food places from restaurants, pubs and cafés, to good food places to stay and much more.

Margaret goes on to say, “We aim to expand the range within our Collection over the coming weeks as we discover new best-in-class experiences around the island.
