We are excited to make the Festival Pack available again this year with all you need to sample the delights of the Dingle Food Festival. Your tableware pack will include a plate, bowl, cup & cutlery made from durable and reusable eco-friendly bamboo in an organic cotton carry bag.
You can use the tableware at any of the festival’s food outlets. Rinse stations are conveniently situated around the town for you to clean your dishes between tastings – see map for locations. This limited edition pack is available for just €15 at the festival office, at the information stall on Grey’s Lane (opposite the entrance to the town park) & at participating shops around town. If you don’t manage to get one, why not bring your own tableware to use at the festival? New this year are water refill points, located next to the rinse stations, where you can refill your water bottle for free thanks to support from Kerry County Council.
To further reduce our plastic waste, most food outlets are using compostable containers and cutlery which can be reused or disposed of in the compost bins at each rinse station. Participating vendors will be awarded the green footprint logo so look out for stall holders and taste trail venues with this logo. While our aim is to reduce waste completely, compostables will give us a helping hand on the road to becoming a zero waste festival. Transition Corca Dhuibhne’s volunteers are pioneering these initiatives in an effort to make the festival waste free.

Together we can make our festival a greener one, join us and ‘be a taster, not a waster’.

The Dingle Food Festival wish to acknowledge the support of Kerry County Council sponsoring the use of compostable plates and forks at all taste trail outlets during the festival. The use of these products reduces the waste as they are composted after the festival and helps us make this a low carbon sustainable festival!

Many thanks to Dillon Waste & Recycling for providing sponsorship.
