    Your book sounds very interesting. We will be driving from Cork and had planned to make a stop in your town. We do not have time to take a tour this time. Do you sell food?? We are very interested in the black pudding…and where to get it. We signed up for your newsletter.

      Hi Marion,
      Thank you for your email, and delighted to hear you’ll be stopping by Clonakilty on your visit.
      I don’t sell food, just food tours, events and writing. If Clonakilty Black Pudding is what you are most interested in, you can visit the original home of the Black Pudding at Edward Twomey’s Butchers Shop on the main street. You won’t be able to taste it there, but you can purchase it there and ask the brilliant Liam and crew all about it! You will see it on lots of menus as you travel through, or if you are self-catering, you can buy some and cook it for yourself too!
      Enjoy your visit!
      Kate

    Looks great! Love the beach photo :)
    I can recommend the Artisan Food Guide, it’s a great reference for visitors and locals alike.

    Kate,

    We love the Irish Foodie magazine but must point out(at my wife’s insistence as a proud Portstewart native) that in your article in the April/May edition on ten of the best Irish seafood experiences you have relocated Harry’s Shack from Portstewart Co Derry to Co Donegal. Harry’s bar /restaurant is in Bridgend Co donegal. We have really enjoyed both issues that we have seen but are never sure where we can pick up a copy. We got the recent issue in the Bank of Ireland ,Clonakilty and more recently picked up the April issue from Fiona in the Festival office in Skibb. Is there anywhere which has them on a regular basis?
    All the best

      Hi Joan and John,
      My apologies for this error, you are of course correct!
      Great to hear that you like reading Irish Foodie Magazine! Distribution isn’t my area – this lies with the editorial team at Quince Publishing who produce the magazine. I am sure if you were to drop them a line, they will be able to give you an extensive list of where the magazine can be picked up. Hope that helps, and thanks for getting in contact!
      Kate
