Summer may be over but that doesn’t mean the Boyne Valley Food Series is. From September until December there are fourteen food-filled experiences to enjoy throughout the Boyne Valley.
With harvest season in full swing, September is packed with food festivals such as The Royal Meath Show, Taste of Togher, Strawfest and the Boyne Valley Food Fest. All events will be filled with seasonal, local food for festival-goers to enjoy along with demonstrations, live music and lots of family fun, including the famous Duck Derby at the Boyne Valley Food Fest and a chance to see the original Vikings longboat used in the series of the same name at Taste of Togher. GIY-ers also get a chance to showcase their harvest at Sheridan’s Harvest Day – an informal gathering of amateur growers.
October is not to be outdone with harvest walks, food fairs and even a Celtic and rock festival on offer. For cider lovers the Apple Harvest Walk at the Cooney’s family orchards is one not to be missed, while other drinks are well catered for with Oktoberfest at The Central in Navan, Co. Meath and a Gin School Experience at Listoke Gin School in Tinure, Co. Louth all lined up. Rounding off October over the bank holiday weekend is the inaugural BRÚ Trim Traditional & Celtic Rock Festival. This festival will see some of Ireland’s best musicians come to Trim to showcase their talents alongside lots of local food and great taste trails.
