RAIN? What rain?

Met Eireann predicted it would be blustery and showery but (apart from the very odd bit of rain) it stayed dry so people could travel around and enjoy the cookery demos and taste trail around town during Saturday afternoon.

Crowds enjoyed some delicious fare in the artisan market in The Square while others travelled around to the various hotels, cafes and restaurants around town taking part in the taste trail.

Everywhere we went people were tucking into dishes using local produce and everyone we spoke to deemed it a huge success.

The Festival ends today but many restaurants have special three course menus for under €20 on Sunday. Scroll down for photos…
