An Exciting New Food Tour is Coming to Limerick This July


Ireland’s latest food trail will explore the finest gourmet hotspots in Newcastle West, County Limerick, while also giving an overview of the best artisan producers, brewers and farmers in the region.

During the tour, which will take place on Thursday July 20th, there will be coffee tastings with raw milk from Croom, granola from Curraghchase and award-winning cheddar from Cahill’s cheese maker.

More unusual stops include a visit to a sushi bar, the latest addition to the restaurant scene in Newcastle West, and a poetry reading from the town’s favourite son, Michael Hartnett.

The tour culminates with a multi-course lunch, with a menu created from locally sourced ingredients.


This food trail has been developed by broadcaster and entrepreneur, Sharon Noonan, who presents the popular Best Possible Taste podcast.

Speaking about the trail, she said: “The town was home to Nash’s famous red lemonade and still is to Ballygowan, Ireland’s first developed water brand and the undisputed giant of Irish bottled water.

The Desmond Banqueting Hall dominates the Square which is home to Sonas Healthfoods, our answer to the Happy Pear with its diverse and large range of Irish artisan food products.

Our eclectic stalls at the Thursday and Saturday markets have so much to offer with items such as freshly baked sourdough bread and Irish garlic which sell out early.”

Taking place on Thursday July 20th, the Newcastle West Food Tour has a limited number of places, so book early to avoid disappointment.
