Great local produce is top of the menu at the Irish Maritime Festival 2018.

Olivia Duff, Fáilte Ireland Food Champion for Ireland’s Ancient East explains “A Taste of Ireland’s Ancient East is a dedicated food zone featuring artisan producers from right across the Boyne Valley region. Hosted by Flogas, this festival food zone is always a very popular spot!”

She continues “Join local chefs from The Boyne Valley Hotel, The Black Bull Inn, Oriel Sea Salt, The Central, Navan, Kirwans Seafood Restaurant 54 and Scholars Townhouse Hotel for exciting and educational recipe demonstrations and pick up great tips along the way!”

Back by popular demand, TV Chef Tara Walker of East Coast Cookery School will also wow the audience with her delicious recipes that celebrate our local food producers.

Enjoy tastings of jams, chutneys, tray bakes, breads, cheeses, coffee and juices at the artisan food stalls.

Olivia concludes “It’s also your opportunity to meet the local producers behind popular artisan brands such as Hilda’s Homemade Jams, Urban Indian, Little Delights, The Cider Mill, The Studio Coffee Roasters, The Limekiln, Glyde Farm Produce and Ruby’s Fine Foods. We know that the public love to meet local producers so it’s a wonderful opportunity to create a connection between producer and consumer.”

This event is part of the Boyne Valley Food Series 2018 and is just one of dozens of fabulous food events taking place across the region.  For full details, visit
