9th Burren Slow Food Festival
– Land & Sea –
16 to 24 May 2015
This year’s event will be held on 23 & 24 May 2015 preceeded by a week of events not to be missed!
This year, the festival activities will extend from just one weekend to a full week of events starting on Saturday 16 May, promising good fun and great food. The main Burren Slow Food Festival weekend will be as usual on the second-but-last weekend in May (23 & 24 May 2015).
Just to give you a little taster of what we have planned for the festival week – there will be at least three events each day, from Saturday 16 to Friday 22 May 2015:
Every day, bookable events will take place in the area of the Burren and Cliffs of Moher (see the festival schedule for further information)
“Meet the Producer” in the morning,
for ex. Tickle Your Taste Buds on a Traditional Farm
“Burren Activity Event” in the afternoon,
for ex. Aillwee’s Primitive Living Demo and Flying Display
“Dining Experience” in the evening,
for ex. Burren Beilini & All That Jazz
And for the festival weekend (Saturday 23 & 24 May 2015, Lisdoonvarna):
In demos and talk, chefs and food producers will give you invaluable information about their trade
secrets which you can use in your daily life!
