Bia Bundoran to showcase food and drink offering in Bundoran, County Donegal

A brand new food & drink festival, Bia Bundoran, is set to take place in the County Donegal seaside town of Bundoran, from Friday September 20th to Sunday September 22nd 2019


Announced last January as part of the new season for Discover Bundoran, the food & drink festival will celebrate and showcase the wide and varied range of food and drink available in the town. The festival will also form part of the national offering from Failte Ireland’s “Taste The Island” initiative.

Many of the Bundoran food providers will present special offers and discounts on their menus or dishes, while others will host special events across the weekend to highlight the fact that diners need not wander too far in search of tasty cuisine. 



Events include Wine Tasting at Fitzgerald’s Bistro, a Food & Foto Tour whereby participants can learn how to take better photos of their food for social media, a Gin Masterclass with an expert from the Sliabh Liag Distillery, a tour of the Community Garden to learn what grows in Bundoran and a family friendly Foraging talk with Forager Fred.



A Limited Edition Beer, Roguey Pale Ale, (the name is Inspired by the famous bracing walk around the cliffs of Bundoran) has been especially commissioned for the Bia Bundoran event. Made by the Donegal Brewing Company, the ale will have it's official launch at the Official Festival Launch in Madden’s Bridge Bar at 6pm on Friday 20th September. (All Welcome!)


Bundoran Tourism Officer Shane Smyth who is coordinating the event said, "There’s a huge demand for food events and it’s been something that has been missing from the Calendar of Events for some time now. We have been delighted with the enthusiasm shown by the various food providers in Bundoran who have embraced the need for this type of event." 



Shane added, "We are blessed with so many food and drink offerings in the town from home grown and home baked goods to specialised coffee shops and quirky cafes that offer a wonderful choice to residents and visitors alike. We look forward to seeing everyone for our first Bia Bundoran weekend this September."



Many of the events require pre-booking and all information can be found on the Bia Bundoran website at www.discoverbundoran.com/bia where a copy of the festival programme can also be downloaded.

See you there!
