Calling All Foodies: A Tasty New Resource for Waterford

Barrons Bakery Scotch Brick OvenFood fans in County Waterford can now find everything they need in one place, as Food The Waterford Way launches a new website, designed to be your resource for everything that’s best in the region.

Farm, Feast, Forage and Fish: Waterford Makes Great Food

The past few months have been difficult for everyone, but Waterford’s food producers, makers and suppliers have been working hard throughout. Whether it’s growing, brewing, roasting or distilling, baking and making for take aways, or keeping customers supplied with the best of the region, the county’s food heroes haven’t stopped.

Now, Food The Waterford Way, the membership organisation for all those making the county’s tastiest and best foods, has launched a new website, designed to help the public to shop online, find where’s open, order takeout, and as things open up, plan their next trips, including specially arranged food and farm tours.

A press and advertising campaign accompanies the launch. As Food the Waterford Way project director, Éimhín Ni Chonchuir says, “this region’s food is special, and we wanted to find a way to tell the county, and the world, about all the people whose hard work makes it all happen. People are, quite literally, hungry for good, authentic, locally produced food,” she continues.

“And in Waterford, the rich mix of land, sea, history and different food cultures combine to make for very special food experiences.”

On the new website, at www.foodthewaterfordway.com, you can find restaurants, from Everett’s to The Tannery, hotels from The Cliff to Faithlegg, and news from makers from Barrons Bakery to the Blackwater Distillery, Comeragh Mountain Lamb to Legacy Cider and Coffee House Lane.

The site hopes to share some suggestions for those days out, and offer some tips for where to find local food and drink done really well! Think a Copper Coast Drive or a Greenway cycle (and forage) with Tramore and Dungarvan at either end, Day trip to Dunmore East, exploring the history of West Waterford, or the Comeragh Mountains and its farms.

Food the Waterford Way is an initiative of the West Waterford Festival of Food. Contact Éimhín Ni Chonchuir on 087 989 6708 and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
