In addition to the various weekend events, Slow Food Ireland is hosting their quarterly meeting in Lisdoonvarna for Saturday 16th May 3.30pm, bringing Slow Food members from around Ireland to the Festival and adding further to the National exposure of the Burren Slow Food Festival 2009.

As you may know, the Slow Food Movement focuses on several aspects of food & culture – from the social aspects of taking time to eat with others/the Community; from understanding the link of food on the table to the agricultural practices that produce it; to the artistic, historical & environmental heritage of the places people eat & shop; to educate ourselves as consumers and to educate the palate through sharing knowledge of taste/experience; as well as topics of biodiversity & sustainability are important elements of Slow Food internationally.
