One of Ireland’s favourite food festivals, Savour Kilkenny marks the end of autumn in the stunning setting of Kilkenny’s Medieval city, in the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East.  

Taking place over the October bank holiday weekend each year, the event celebrates the produce, food and culture of Kilkenny and the surrounding rich pasturelands.

Known for its diversity and quality of food producers, distilleries, breweries, restaurants and cafés, Kilkenny is home to some of Ireland’s and Europe’s best food.

Established in 2008 Savour Kilkenny is now in its 14th year. Growing in size each year, the festival welcomed over 50,000 people in 2019 (before going virtual for 2020 & 2021).

Each year the festival presents an exciting and innovative programme of events showcasing the very best of local and Irish products, chefs and culinary ideas. Visitors can expect special dining events, a 100+ stall market, food industry debates, cooking demonstrations, workshops and more!
