West Cork Food
West Cork brings the very best in Artisan food production to you, and warmly invites you to meet the producers at the annual ‘A Taste Of West Cork Food Festival’.
West Cork has a reputation as a centre of excellence for artisan food production; a reputation founded on the care, commitment and skill that the artisan producers and providers of this enticingly beautiful part of Ireland bring to all that they do.
Many of them have a lifetime’s worth of practical experience, and are more than happy to share their skill and passion with people who appreciate good food. There are two cookery schools that we recommend that you check out during your visit to West Cork; Heir Island Cookery School and Firehouse Bread School.
These West Cork Cookery Schools provide:
Breaks at specific times of the year for small groups of enthusiasts and also a capacity for groups to arrange their own preferred dates for holidays in West Cork, coinciding their visit with a stay at our hotel in county Cork.
- A year–round presence for all participating artisan food producers and service providers via their websites, a portal for interaction and a shop window for their products
