GOOD FOOD IRELAND®
In 2006 our Founder Margaret Jeffares had a vision to link Ireland’s two biggest indigenous industries, the agri-food and tourism hospitality sectors to position local food and drink as an economic driver for business growth. She crafted a brand, Good Food Ireland® to be the consumer facing endorsement for genuine quality and authentic Irish food and drink experiences. This new standard of guaranteed trust and honesty in food and drink set the scene for a new kind of tourism. One which embraced the country’s legendary food and drink production, farming and fishing heritage, as an essential part of the visitor experience.
AN All-Ireland Experience
Today Good Food Ireland® has become the standard to aspire to and is the ultimate all Ireland destination experience. From farmhouse B&B’s, cafes and coffee shops, to restaurants, food shops and delis, hotels, country houses and guesthouses, to cookery schools, food and drink producers and artisan specialists across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, each and every business approved to the Collection form a solid core of people who share the vision to give the best local food and drink experience in Ireland.
