If we’re to believe the calendar, we’re now officially in the summer in Ireland though as with an Irish summer, the weather begs to differ. If you’re planning on jumping in the car this month to catch an event or festival and spend a few days indulging yourself with the best of Irish food, here’s a few dates to circle in your calendar.

So Sligo Food & Culture Festival
10-14 June, SoSligo.ie
I’ve managed to recitfy my failed intentions of getting to the fatherland in years past by booking myself in for Só Sligo this year, the festival getting underway on 10 June and running until the 14th.
There’s a two day programme of talks, tastings and discussions in the Factory Performance space at Quay Street looking at artisan beer making, tastings with local food heroes, raw food, a pop-up fermentation bar, a look at Irish seaweeds and more besides. Galway’s Aniar returns to The Model with a pop up restaurant, there’s a cookery book swap, the World Irish Stew Championship and you’ll find lots of local bars and eateries weighing in with music and food offers across the weekend.
