Vote For Galway!


We would really appreciate your vote, and the votes of all your colleagues, community groups, family and friends!


Our food industry in the Galway, West of Ireland region has been working extremely hard for the last 30 years to grow and develop and deserves to be recognised.


Food plays a critical role in all our lives in Galway, from farmer and fisherman to chef, restauranteur and consumer.

We produce enough food to feed over 1.5 million people which is a testament to our local landscape. We boast over 12,000 farms,

689km of coastline, 52 islands and over 350 restaurants. Food and food culture are at the centre of our regional fabric, engrained in all our lives.

Galway, West of Ireland, is very fortunate to have been designation a European Region of Gastronomy for 2018. Acquiring this award took significant

commitment from a dedicated food community. It was won by the people of Galway for the people of the region and is a testament to our collaborative and vibrant food community.



Galway has been nominated for @FoodieDestinations 2018 and we’ll need your votes to win!

It’s an amazing opportunity to support and showcase Galway’s food scene, from our local cafés

and restaurants all the way to our hard-working farmers and producers.
