Irish Food & Drink Month

Pride in Irish food has never been stronger in Ireland’s hospitality sector. Across the country, you’ll find Irish produce taking front and centre of most menus. Local food tastes best when enjoyed with local drinks and Ireland is no exception.  Our native drinks pair wonderfully well with Irish meats, fish, farmed produce and cheeses. We want to see those drinks as well loved as the foods they share the same land with. That’s why we’re rolling out a brand new nationwide festival for all of October 2022 –  Irish Food & Drink Month.

We are working with a number of different Irish drinks brands across many sectors for this project. Any licensed bar, restaurant or hotel can register for free and in order to get involved, they have to create and sell a signature Irish food & drink pairing. There will be a public vote on Instagram and Facebook for which participating venue has the best Irish food & drink pairing in the country. And different brands are looking to host their own food pairing events – so get stuck in with us! Click here and register your venue now.

Check out the video for some culinary inspiration!

Irish Food & Drink Month has been made possible with kind support from Bord Bia, Drinks Ireland and all the amazing Irish drinks brands we are engaging with.
