The final 10 of Foodie Destinations were announced on Thursday and delighted to say Derry is one of them! The title is awarded to places which have a cluster of high quality places to eat and also aims to highlight local tourism initiatives across the country.
The competition was originally run by the Restaurants Association of Ireland but has become so popular it has become its own entity since last year, when Derry was runner-up! This year we are up against Dublin, The Burren, Kilkenny and Boyne Valley to name a few. 50% of the final decision is down to public vote so get voting…
The judges will be in the City on the 30th August and all our local producers, chefs, restaurateurs and foodies will be showcasing the very best the City has to offer and just why we are worthy winners…
This is exactly what the food tour is all about, demonstrating to both locals and tourists alike, the high quality of local produce, the passion of the locals and the wonderful foodie experiences available in the City.
From amazing Streetfood serving top class wagyu beef to Craft beers and award winning local cheeses we are spoilt for choice here. Every year new food businesses open and the standard pushes higher whilst providing outstanding food for excellent value for money.
To be crowned winner would be a massive accolade for the City and really help to give us the edge in promoting the offer we have here. Voting closes 9th September and the winner will be announced on 29th September. So please get voting and encourage all your friends and family!
