Fresh scallops at the Kinsale Food Festival

2014 is such a great foodie year for Ireland – festivals for every season, new food markets opened up and down the country, new restaurants getting their well-deserved stars, events every other weekend, and more and more cookery courses advertised. Is Ireland the latest foodie destination in Europe? We think so! These autumn seafood festivals are only the latest must-gos for gourmet lovers:
