Food & Dining

Northern Ireland is 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.

An unspoilt environment and mild climate produce superb, high quality food. Our seafood, beef, lamb, game, 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. Maybe you already know that Lough Neagh is Europe's greatest source of eels and that the famous Bushmills Whiskey has been produced in the County Antrim village of Bushmills for 400 years! Perhaps you have heard of Finnebrogue Venison - the best venison meat in the world - and the humble Comber potato, grown in the arable farmland of County Down.

From sea-front restaurants along the Causeway Coastal Route to seafood bars at the foot of the Mourne Mountains, contemporary city restaurants in Belfast and the City of Derry to cookery courses in the heart of Fermanagh Lakelands, and hearty pub grub in the beautiful rural spots. Read on to learn more about Food in Northern Ireland.
