OPW Kilkenny Castle is once again delighted to collaborate with Savour Kilkenny.
Savour Kilkenny is now one of Ireland’s leading food festivals. Heading into this year’s 13th annual festival, the event celebrates the produce and food culture of the surrounding rich pastureland, home to some of Ireland and Europe’s best food. While the produce of its dairy and meat sector are internationally renowned, the festival celebrates local artisan products and a vibrant local restaurant and café culture which has seen the area become a leading food destination.
See www.savourkilkenny.com for information on all the events happening throughout the city and county.
