It’s into the West for me this weekend as I’m heading out the door on Friday after work in URRU and straight down to Kerry with the Husband for this year’s Dingle Food Festival. It all kicks off that night with a launch at the Dingle Bay Hotel from 10pm. If you’re about on Saturday and Sunday there are a series of cookery demonstrations, taste trails (watch out for the Mexican Fiesta at Murphy’s Ice Cream!) and farmers’ markets throughout the town. And don’t forget – at 5pm on Sunday the inaugural Blas na hÉireann/National Irish Food Awards ceremony will take place at Benner’s Hotel. Now, just got to make sure that my accomodation is sorted out!
