Georgina Campbell, well-known author and owner of the Ireland Guide website, has been writing a series of food reviews by counties, and in this month's edition of the Food & Wine magazine, it was County Clare's turn to be sussed out.
It becomes clear very quickly where the bulk of the food producing businesses is situated - i.e. in the north of the county. So it is not really surprising that this is the home of the Burren Food Trail considering that a lot of the cheese, chocolate, smoked salmon, ice cream and other food producing companies are situated in and around the Burren area of North Clare.
In the issue, the Burren Smokehouse was featured as was the Roadside Tavern.
In another paragraph about Lisdoonvarna, Birgitta and Peter Curtin together with John and Martina Sheedy from Sheedy's Country Hotel and Restaurant as well as Kate and Aidan McGrath from the Wild Honey Inn were mentioned as being instrumental in transforming Lisdoonvarna into a prime destination for food lovers.
