What is Slow Food?
Slow Food is a global initiative with members from all around Ireland and the rest of the globe that look at the food world through the eyes of the local community and our environment. In our case, we are so lucky to have The Burren in Co.Clare, The Aran Islands, Doolin and the west coast of Ireland to be spoiled with choice.
Doolin Ferry and Slow Food Clare
Slow Food Clare does an incredible job organizing the Burren Slow Food Festival every year to bring this global movement to our doorstep.
As a member of the Burren Ecotourism group Doolin Ferry with Bill O’Brien is proud to have participated in numerous events in the past few years. We have hosted a Champagne Picnic on our Cliffs of Moher Cruise, an amazing ‘Taste the Atlantic- A Seafood Journey’ event which took place from Doolin to Inis Oirr. Here guests could enjoy the Seafood Buffet at Tigh Ned’s on Inis Oírr, Aran Islands. Tigh Ned’s Pub is known for one of the top places to eat on Inis Oirr, seafood fresh from the sea. The Ó Conghaile family fishes most of their seafood themselves off the island. Tigh Ned is located right on the edge of Inis Oirr overlooking the Burren Co.Clare and Galway Bay. A fantastic place for not only slow food but also sightseeing. While on the island you can read about some local sights like O’Brien’s Castle.
