The Boyne Valley region gets its name from the famous river Boyne which flows through Meath and Louth to reach the Irish Sea. Although it is only 112 kilometres long, the river Boyne has many archaeological and historical connotations. This rich valley is home to some of the world’s most mythical landscapes, where you can wander through time like you never have before by entering the tombs of the Stone Age, discover the secrets of our ancestors and walk in the footsteps of Vikings.
This part of Ireland has also long been synonymous with food production and trade dating as far back as 10,000 years ago. Named the bounty of Ireland for its lush green landscapes and rich pasture, the tradition of food production is still very important to the region. Home to a veritable bounty of passionate farmers, food and drink producers, chefs, eateries and accommodation providers whose passion is to bring all the flavours of this unique landscape to your table.
Boyne Valley Flavours works with producers, food experience providers, restaurants, cafes & accommodation providers throughout the Boyne Valley that are passionate about the food grown and created in this part of the world. Each year we host the award winning Boyne Valley Food Series which is a calendar of immersive food experiences across the Boyne Valley with lots of different experiences from gin school to farm tours (visit website for details). We also work with chefs through our Place on a Plate initiative which encourages the use of local ingredients on menus.
