Welcome to Taste Leitrim, the definitive guide to places to eat, food experiences and the wonderful food and drink producers of County Leitrim.
Taste Leitrim is all about establishing the county as a ‘must visit’ food destination. We may be Ireland’s smallest populated county but we certainly pack a culinary punch by bringing you 59 video profiles within an overall directory of over 80 food and drink champions. By introducing you to our chefs, makers, producers, food entrepreneurs, distillers, brewers, baristas and farmers you will experience an insider’s view into the people behind Leitrim’s diverse food offering, what motivates us and our common aim –a true passion to bring you amazing food and drink experiences.
The Taste Leitrim brand is rooted in biodiversity and diversity. Inspired by our natural and unspoilt environment, we are a real fusion of backgrounds and experiences. Some of us were born and grew up here; others come from all the corners of the world and made Leitrim our home. Much more than a name and an image, our brand is an invitation to come and sample all that Leitrim has to offer. When we ask you to Taste Leitrim, we actually invite you to taste the world.
So many of our businesses actually started in the depth of recession – our true character of resilience and ambition is combined with culinary excellence and a deep and genuine passion. Throw in a pinch of West of Ireland quirkiness and you get the picture!
And underpinning all of this, we are people’s people, we enjoy your company and you will enjoy ours. We’re passionate about what we do and where we do it.
So use this website to plan your culinary adventure to County Leitrim, make the very most of your time with us and savour every morsel of the Taste Leitrim experience.
Taste Leitrim would not be possible without the foresight and support of Leitrim County Council and The Food Hub and the financial support of the CEDRA Agri-Food Tourism Initiative, under the Rural Innovation and Development Fund.
