Essential Food Trails

The Burren Farm to Fork Experience

The people who live and work the land in the Burren region are a dynamic and hardy bunch. Some can trace their roots back to those who built the Neolithic portal tombs that characterise the rocky limestone landscape. More recent arrivals are Scandinavians who reintroduced techniques of cheesemaking and curing fish that had been lost or abandoned in the mists of time. Others are returned emigrants roasting coffee beans and shucking oysters in impossibly idyllic locations.

The beautifully stark Burren landscape of exposed limestone rock, hazel woodlands and grasslands with an abundance of wild flowers are a haven for honey bees and ideal for grazing goats sheep and cattle. Is it any wonder the Burren has been termed the fertile rock?

Farming practices in the Burren have unchanged for centuries, no heavy machinery could cope with the rocky landscape, only human feet and hands can work this land, producing the finest goat cheese, cured meat, smoked fish, shucked oysters.

Then there is the village life: farmers markets where these producers gather to trade their wares, where locals and visitors meet and chat; the artisan cafes, restaurants and pubs.

From the village delicatessens that write their daily menu based on what their local suppliers have available, to the boutique hotel serving seasonally foraged wild foods: mushrooms, wild garlic alongside game; to the country pubs serving imaginative plates.
