Organisers have confirmed that the 37th Kinsale Gourmet Festival in October is now completely sold out.

Running October 11-13, demand for this year’s event in the County Cork seaside town was unprecedented and tickets sold out at the beginning of August.

Good Food Circle Chairperson Roman Minihane said, “We are thrilled with the volume of enquiries and publicity that the event has received.  Every year it goes from strength to strength giving proof to our customers and sponsors alike of the fantastic local product on offer.”

Though ticketed programs are already fully subscribed to, patrons visiting Kinsale will be treated to ‘Surf & Turf’ with a twist – Martin Shanahan of Fishy Fishy said that each of the 11 Good Food Circle member restaurants will be offering a ‘Mad Hatters Special for €20’ for the Month of September, with a different variation of the dish in each premises – and early booking is advisable.

Clona Dairies and Pallas Foods sponsor the Friday afternoon ‘Surf n Turf Cook Off’ between the original creators of the popular RTE series, Martin and Paul’s Surf n Turf – Paul Flynn & Martin Shanahan with visiting national and international chefs lining up alongside them.  The event, taking place at Actons Hotel, is free,

Patrons with event tickets will move on to the Trident Hotel at 6.30 for an eight-course ‘Taste of West Cork’ Dining Experience & Black Tie Ball, with radio and TV personality Derek Davis acting hosting the event.
