For immediate release…..

Excitement is already building for the return of the Dingle Food Festival. After a two year absence, the hugely popular festival returns to its annual slot in the calendar, the first weekend of October. 
Running this year from Friday 30th September to Sunday 2nd October, the streets of Dingle will once again come alive showcasing the very best of Irish food and drink. 

The 2022 festival, will have a special focus on local food and local producers. Saturday will see the launch of a new food network group: “Bia Dingle”. The network aims to support and promote producers, farmers, fisherman and all those involved in food on the Dingle Peninsula. The Peninsula is home to many passionate producers, including Annascaul Black Pudding, Bean in Dingle Coffee, Dingle Distillery, Dingle Sushi, Murphy’s Ice Cream, Ted Brown Crab and West of Dingle Sea Salt. Spokesperson for the festival, Niamh O’Kennedy said, ”this is such an exciting time for food on the peninsula, with new food producers, growers, sustainability projects and food experiences, what better place to showcase this, than at the Dingle Food Festival”

Over the course of the weekend, there will be cookery demo’s in St. James Church, where talented chefs from across Ireland and from Dingle town will be cooking up delights in the historic St. James church, including Chef Peter McGrattan, from Dublin restaurant, Chapter One. Numerous workshops including bee-keeping, herb growing, wild flower arranging along with delicious and informative cheese and wine tastings will also be taking place. On Saturday evening ‘An Turas Mór – Homecoming Kerry’ will be launched with a spectacular fire show followed by evening fireworks. An Turas Mór is a Kerry County Council initiative to bring home Kerry Diaspora during the month of October.
Over the weekend Blas na hEireann, which is the biggest competition for quality Irish produce on the island of Ireland, will announce who has won Gold, Silver or Bronze in their category. (More info @

Now in it’s 14th year the festival highlight is of course the famous Dingle Taste Trail. Mouthwatering tasty delights are on offer in the pubs, shops, restaurants, galleries and cafes throughout Dingle town. This year over 50 locations have signed up for the Taste Trail, as the thousands who descend on the town, use the special taste trail tickets to purchase some of the finest food Dingle has to offer. Why not try a Murphy's Ice Cream Chocolate and Caramel Ice Cream Cake Slice or a Murphy’s Mocktail - Frozen raspberry drink containing cold pressed lemon juice with hints of ginger and cayenne pepper. Dingle Chef Louise Brosnan and proprietor of food truck Mex West, will be offering corn nachos with Dingle goats cheese and Annascaul Black Pudding crumble…enough said!

This will all take place amidst a huge Farmer’s Market which takes over the pedestrianised streets of Dingle town. Combined with on street entertainment, live music and a free programme of children’s events it’s no wonder the festival won Ireland's Favourite Food Experience at the Irish Independent Readers Travel Awards in 2020.
