Kilkenny is now one of Ireland’s leading ‘foodie destinations’, having been named ‘Foodie Destination’ in 2018, the County also hosts an active calendar of food events that take place throughout the year from Savour Kilkenny and Kilkenny Food Trail events.
Commenting on initiative, Chairperson of Visit Kilkenny, Colin Ahern said; “We are delighted to add ‘Restaurant Week’ to our calendar of events, this is the ideal way to kick off the 2020 season early and showcase our eateries and produce while offering customers excellent value for money.
