Northern Ireland’s Year of Food & Drink 2016

Royal County Down Golf Club has been voted the world’s top golf course in the annual rankings of US magazine Golf Digest released in January 2016.

Royal Portrush Golf Club also listed will host the British Open in 2019.  The R&A recently announced that the 148th Open will be played at Royal Portrush in July 2019, marking a historic return to Northern Ireland.

Belfast has secured its place on the culinary map with two of its top city centre restaurants claiming coveted Michelin stars, Deans Eipic and Ox.

Northern Ireland may not strike you as a foodie mecca – but then again, 15 years ago, neither did Copenhagen.  Every great culinary culture starts with the ingredients, and this year, Northern Ireland is hoping to tell the story of its culture, heritage, people and landscape through an exciting schedule of food and drink events based around monthly themes:-

  • January – Breakfast month
  • February – Love Local
  • March – Heritage & Traditions
  • April – Brewing & Distilling
  • May – Landscape & Places
  • June – Love Dairy
  • July Sea, Rivers & Loughs
  • August – Love Northern Ireland Meat
  • September – Bread & Baking
  • October – Harvest
  • November – Legacy & Learn to….
  • December – Christmas & Premium Food
