The Burren Food Trail is among four Irish finalists of this year’s EDEN (European Destination of Excellence) competition.
The Burren Food Trail will be vying with Wild Atlantic Way So Sligo Food Trail,
Cong Food Village and West Waterford for the top accolade, the winner of which will be announced on May 22.
The theme of the 2015 competition ‘Tourism and Local Gastronomy’ and the four Irish locations chosen are currently preparing for on-site assessments during the week of Monday, May 11 when they will be visited by a panel of expert adjudicators.
This assessment will allow each applicant an opportunity to provide further evidence of their Tourism and Local Gastronomy destination of excellence.
Held every two years, EDEN focusses on a different aspect of tourism each time with the winning destination to receive a promotional photo shoot to market itself as well as €5,000 towards highlighting its attractions.
The winning entry will also represent Ireland at a ceremony and exhibition in Brussels later this year.
