We touched upon the food in A Day at the Burren, but it’s such a delicious topic that I’ve decided to serve it up as a blog all of its own. Often referred to as “the Fertile Rock”, the karst landscape of the Burren is a bountiful source of Irish flavour.
The Burren Food Trail is designed to guide you through the vast selection of local restaurants and suppliers, so you can get more than just a taste of the remarkable cuisine on offer. There are even five different “routes” mapped out to help you pinpoint any particular gastronomy that piques your appetite. Although, you can of course just pick and choose as you please, and be guided by the delicious signature dish available at each establishment.
The trail is so much more than just a list of recommendations, with each and every participant sharing a genuine passion for locally sourced produce - committing to building a sustainable future for the region.
The adventurous nature of the area lends itself to new experiences, so your culinary tour is sure to feed not just your body – but your mind and soul as well. So, without further ado, here’s my list of recommendations to feast upon when you visit the Burren.
First of all – you absolutely cannot miss a chance to experience the Burren Smokehouse, which offers up a uniquely educational eating experience just 15 minutes from the Cliffs of Moher.
