Flavours of Achill is part of Fáilte Ireland’s new Taste the Island initiative and is a celebration of Ireland’s food culture. Its extensive calendar of food and drink events across Ireland are running from September to November 2019 featuring food trails, tasting events, farm visits, food festivals and many more.
As part of this initiative, Achill Island’s local producers have come together to develop Achill Island’s first food tour, Flavours of Achill. This is a showcase of the Island’s unique food culture, its producers and the land that produces the food.
This full day tour will visit four producers on Achill Island – Achill Island Sea Salt, Achill Mountain Lamb, Irish American Whiskey and Keem Bay Fish Products. The tour will also feature a lunch in a local restaurant with a menu showcasing the wonderful flavours of Achill Island.
This unique food experience will give you a hands-on experience with Achill’s local food and drink producers. You will learn about how people not only sustain life and food production on the island, but how Achill Island actually inspires creativity with food and drink by harnessing the local resources.
By the end of the day, you will learn that island life fosters ingenuity and resourcefulness and produces strong distinctive flavours to match the character of island life. Come along to experience the real flavours of Achill Island and make some new friends along the way!
