Wexford’s landscapes are deep routed with over 5,000 years of history and culture. The fresh plains, sublime mountains and market towns conceal centuries of heritage from the county’s predecessors.
The food extracted and forged from the land retells the stories of such histories, by eating local produce one literally consumes the culture of the county.
Wexford is the cornerstone of Ireland’s Ancient East. Momentous landmarks and locations such as the Hook Lighthouse, Dunbrody Famine Ship, National Heritage Park and Ferns and Enniscorthy Castle make the county a hot bed for exploring the region’s rich culture and heritage.
Ireland’s Ancient East aims to build inspiring itineraries around the exploration of the region’s legends and stories from ancient times, loaded with festivals, attractions, food and of course fun.
Taste Wexford is a county wide co-operation initiative aiming to celebrate, promote and support our local food trade. Our vision is for growers, producers, farmers, chefs, restaurants and hospitality outlets alike to come together and create a unique food offering and identity for County Wexford.
Taste Wexford is initially a local food network for locals and tourists to experience the wide selection of locally grown and produced food and drink through festivals, food trails, workshops and experiences.
