Welcome to the Dingle Food Festival

The Dingle Food Festival takes place on the first weekend in October every year in the beautiful fishing town of Dingle on the Dingle Peninsula on the Wild Atlantic Way. It is organised by a group of local people on a non profit making basis..

Locals call it ‘The Best Weekend of the Year’. The town comes alive with locals and tourists alike. Everyone comes home for the Dingle Food Festival and tourists come from far and wide across the globe that weekend just for the festival.

Highlights of the festival include cookery demonstrations, food trail, over 50 market stalls, workshops, street entertainment, childrens events, wine tastings, and much much more.

Far and away the most popular part of the festival is ‘The Taste Trail‘. Festival goers purchase a book of taste trail tickets and can then visit over 70 venues around the town offering tastings of the best food and drink the Peninsula has to offer.

The festival in conjunction with various local organisations is aiming to make the Dingle Food Festival waste free.
