It was announced earlier this week that Kinsale has been nominated as one of Ireland’s Top 10 Foodie Destinations for 2017. The competition aims to celebrate Ireland’s unique and wonderful food offerings and to encourage local food tourism initiatives.
Kinsale is in great company as other areas in the Top 10 include Galway’s Westend, Kilkenny, Sligo, Cong, Boyne Valley and West Cork among others. Applications were received from all over the country and at the first stage of judging, applications were thoroughly assessed by an independent panel of judges.
The ten finalists will receive a pre-arranged visit from independent assessors over the coming weeks, this will then be combined with a national public voting campaign where the public can choose their winning foodie destination.
Voting opens on Tuesday 25th July and the winning destination will be crowned Foodie Destination of Ireland 2017 on 29th August.
So get voting next Tuesday www.foodiedestinations.ie
