 St Patrick’s Festival Food Map to showcase Cork’s favourite eateries

 

Cork, 10 March 2015: Cork St Patrick’s Festival today announced that this year, for the first time, a Festival Food Map will showcase some of Cork’s best-loved restaurants and the special St Patrick’s Day-inspired dishes they will feature on their menus for the duration of the four day festival. 

In total, 22 restaurants across the city are participating in the inaugural Festival Food Map, including Electric, Isaacs, Nash 19, Elbow Lane, Market Lane and Jacques, among many other Cork favourites. The Food Map will be available to download at www.corkstpatricksfestival.ie.

Alice Coyle, who runs Fab Food Trails in Cork and who created the Festival Food Map, said: “Wherever you find yourself during the festival, this map will guide you to a cafe, bar or restaurant which will be featuring an Irish dish made with Irish ingredients especially for the long weekend. As a Fab Food Trails guide I’m very familiar with the high quality of food on offer around Cork City, so pulling together all of these great food businesses was quite an easy task!”

Fab Food Trails will host a Cork Tasting Trail on Saturday, March 14th at 10.30am. For more information and to book a place, see www.fabfoodtrails.ie

Sample dishes include:

 

Filter’s special sanger for the Festival will be called The Gurrier. It will be available from Thursday, and features boxty bread with corned beef and cabbage: a modern Irish twist on a traditional Irish meal.

 

At Nash 19, enjoy a pearl barley and lamb casserole with champ for the cold days of March, or Hederman smoked fish plates with soda bread. Corned beef with Longueville cider cream will also be an option. Top it all off with apple tart with lashings of cream!

 

The Weir Rooms at The River Lee Hotel is delighted to offer Oak Smoked Salmon with Sea Asparagus and Seaweed Salad, served with a Taster of Franciscan Well Craft Beer.
