Irish food and drink month

October 05, 2022

Drinks Ireland is proud to support Great Irish Beverages and its first Irish Food & Drink Month festival - a nationwide celebration of pairing Irish foods with Irish drinks running in October.

Pride in Irish food and drink has never been stronger in Ireland’s hospitality sector. All across Ireland, you’ll find Irish produce taking front and centre of most menus. Few would argue that local food tastes best when enjoyed with local drinks and Ireland is no exception. Our native drinks pair wonderfully well with Irish meats, fish, farmed produce and cheeses. We want to see those drinks as well loved as the foods they share the same land with. This is why Drinks Ireland is proud to support this brand new nationwide festival for all of October 2022 – Irish Food & Drink Month.

With 140 venues in 16 different counties, each registered venue has a signature Irish food & drink pairing for the month of October is divided by the county, which can be found HERE. The public vote for which participating venue has the best Irish food & drink pairing is live and people can vote by tagging the venue in a post on Instagram and using the hashtag #EatDrinkIrish, or they can vote by posting on the Great Irish Beverages Facebook page.
