Fisk at Breac.House – Autumn 2019
A Donegal feast at the foot of Donegal
Each year, the Donegal Food Coast has successfully hosted a large array of food events including “Donegal Dishes”, which brought food producers and restaurants in Donegal together to create a menu with local food being at the heart of the offering; “A Donegal Feast at the Foot of Errigal”, in which some of Donegal’s most brilliant chefs created a feast of Donegal food at the foot of Errigal surrounded by music; and “Fisk at Breac House” in which the chefs at Fisk treated Breac House guests to a series of small plates that celebrated the best of local Donegal fish and shellfish, fresh from the Atlantic.
Beef and beer weekend
Castle Grove’s 3rd Annual Strawberry Festival
Additional great ideas for Donegal food experiences were a “Beef and Beer Weekend” in Dicey Reilly’s bar in Ballyshannon, and Castle Grove’s Annual Strawberry Festival, a family day out to celebrate the strawberry harvest from the walled garden and an opportunity to explore the rich history and grounds, while enjoying live music and family fun experiences.
Dungloe Street Food Festival

Other experiences that might inspire you to host your own are the Dungloe Street Food event, which provides food trucks and a host of local Donegal producers and vendors showcasing and selling their produce and Off the Street Food Festival, Letterkenny’s most delicious summer food festival which involves a host of cookery demonstrations, live music and family fun.
Summer Seafood & Jazz Night
The “Summer Seafood and Jazz Night” in Arnolds’ Hotel saw guests enjoy a five-course seafood menu to the sounds of live jazz has also proved to be a successful Food Coast Experience.
