Dublin's food story themes

Fáilte Ireland is the National Tourism Development Authority. Our role is to support the tourism industry and work to sustain Ireland as a high-quality and competitive tourism destination. We provide a range of practical business supports to help tourism businesses better manage and market their products and services.

We also work with other state agencies and representative bodies, at local and national levels, to implement and champion positive and practical strategies that will benefit Irish tourism and the Irish economy. We promote Ireland as a holiday destination through our domestic marketing campaign,, and manage a network of nationwide tourist information centres that provide help and advice for visitors to Ireland. 

Dublin businesses may use a different emphasis from rural places when they’re talking about Ireland’s food tourism. For example they may want: 

  • to talk up their buzzy atmosphere, their contemporary approach and the new wave of inspired chefs,

  • to talk more about sourcing suppliers from across Ireland, using “Irish” as often as “local”,

  • to emphasise “this small island of Ireland” as evidence of how fresh the food is, even when coming from other parts of Ireland,

  • to underline the world-class status of Ireland’s raw ingredients, as they go head-to-head with international competitors for city-break visitors.
