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:

Can’t make it all the way to the West Coast? Head down to D?n Laoghaire pier for your fish fix. Meanwhile, I’ll let you ponder on the great man Hemingway’s musing on aquatic life:? ?The setting of the sun is a difficult time for all fish.? (The Old Man and the Sea)
