Taste the Island by Fáilte Ireland

At The Riverside Park Hotel

In September 2019, Failte Ireland aims to promote the extensive catalogue of food and drink experiences of the island of Ireland to domestic and international visitors alike. Through Taste the Island incentive they will be creating opportunities for Irish restaurants, hotels and hospitality services to attract higher numbers of visitors outside of the already busy summer months.

Taste the Island will see an all-island opportunity for us at The Riverside Park Hotel, to showcase our world-class food and drink culture, giving our beloved visitors, access to authentic food and dining experiences and the highest quality locally sourced ingredients over the months of September, through to November.

This programme will be an extensive, all-Ireland occasion that will include visits to local food producers, distilleries and brewers. Take part in food trails and the best of food festivals. Visitors will be welcome to participate in traditions, such as; opportunities to forage and fish; chances to sit back and divulge in the best of modern Irish cuisine in traditional pubs, small-town cafés, restaurants, city bistros and Michelin-starred experiences. This is only the beginning...

This is a three-year initiative and the first tourism programme on an all-island basis. So what are you waiting for? Whether you’re a food producer, a brewer, a barista, a baker, or simply a real food enthusiast, there’s something for everyone in Taste the Island.

Here at the Riverside Park Hotel, Enniscorthy, we are happy to work alongside Failte Ireland to bring our guests from near and far the best dining experiences our wonderful Island has to offer.

We look forward to Tasting the Island with you in the very near future.
