Devised by Taste Kilkenny, in conjunction with Kilkenny Tourism, this initiative is set to encourage diners to experience the great selection of produce and flavours that Kilkenny has to offer, and encourage increased trade for businesses at the beginning of the traditionally quieter season.

The initiative will see restaurants offering discounted set menus for lunch and dinner, special offers and great deals for both take-out, indoor and outdoor dining in what will be a celebration of dining in Kilkenny.

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 the initiative, Chairperson of Kilkenny Tourism, Ciaran Conroy said; “We are delighted to add ‘Taste Kilkenny Restaurant Week’ to our calendar of events. This is the ideal way to kick off the 2022 season early and showcase our eateries and produce, while offering customers excellent value for money.”

He added; “Taste Kilkenny Restaurant Week will allow visitors to experience even more ways to enjoy Kilkenny and we hope people will plan their winter getaways during that week. To find out more information on the various discounts and offers, people should follow our Facebook @kilkennytourism and website
