Waterford, Ireland’s oldest city, has always been a place of firsts, the first teas, wines and spices reaching our shores through the invaders and traders who came to Waterford through its port; once the busiest in Europe.
It’s a strong community of people, driven by a desire to create good food, and a vibrant heartland influenced by the many visitors who came here over the centuries. Tales of Vikings and Huguenots, of stately houses and castles nestled along its rivers, and its people who know exactly where food treasure is to be found. It’s this rich history of food and openness to the world that has been blended with fresh local ingredients and dishes over time to make up the exciting range of food and drink that’s available in County Waterford today.
Taste Waterford's producers can be found everywhere; at the end of a quiet country lane in the Comeragh Mountains, in the shallows of Dungarvan Harbour, nestled down a side street in Ballyduff, in the vineyards of Gaultier, overlooking the surf in Tramore, or at the end of a majestic drive through County Waterford.
Come and meet the makers, experience their retail and hospitality offering, and take in their stories, craft and family secrets that have been passed through the generations.
