21st -23rd April 2017
West Waterford Festival of Food centred in Dungarvan is a mecca for food lovers and fun seekers with a programme that has proven to be the perfect mix of free events and ticketed ones; an equally perfect mix of high-end dining opportunities and casual bistro experiences and it certainly offers something for all ages.
The festival's ethos is one of supporting local: local food producers, local restaurants, cafes and local retailers. The festival team is also drawn from the local community, so ticket collectors, parking attendants, ushers, guides and stewards are all local volunteers from across the town and region.
The weekend has also proven to be a magnet for Michelin-starred chefs such as Ross Lewis of Chapter One in Dublin, Derry Clarke of L’Ecrivain, also Dublin, and our locally-based Martijn Kajuiter of the Cliff House Hotel in Ardmore, Co. Waterford. In 2013 Paul and Máire Flynn of Dungarvan's Tannery Restaurant hosted an evening of nose-to-tail eating with Fergus Henderson of renowned London restaurant St John while the greatly admired Richard Corrigan is a frequent visitor and great supporter of the weekend. Last year saw the return of Ross Lewis and Richard Corrigan along with Fergus and Margot Henderson, Michael Quinn, Garrett Byrne, and Martijn Kajuiter.
This beautiful coastal town of about 9,000 people has a picturesque harbour used by leisure craft of all shapes and sizes and is further enhanced by the majestic Comeragh mountains in its background and is ready to welcome you and showcase the best the landscape which Dungarvan has to offer this April 21st - 23rd.
