Food & Dining

This is the tastiest time to visit Northern Ireland - a great destination for lovers of good food and drink and the Year of Food and Drink 2016 will be a celebration of everything that makes the produce from this place so good.

We craft, grow, breed, catch, cook and enjoy the finest, freshest food thanks to our rich land and dedicated hands, which makes for a truly delicious experience. 

Our beef, lamb, game, seafood, dairy produce, fruit and vegetables are among the best in the world, and the region is gaining renown for the reputation of its local producers.  With award-winning contemporary city restaurants in Belfast and the City of Derry, effervescent sea-front restaurants along the Causeway Coastal Route, snug seafood bars at the foot of the Mourne Mountains, cookery courses in the heart of Fermanagh Lakelands, and hearty pub grub in the beautiful rural spots - we have it all. Read on to learn more about Food in Northern Ireland.
