Kinsale Chowder Festival

All Ireland Chowder Festival

This hugely popular event, hosted by the town’s Good Food Circle and an association of local restaurants, sees restaurants, cafés & bars compete to become “All-Ireland Chowder Champion”.

We have decided not to host this year .2024 watch this space!

Who makes the best chowder in Ireland? Another fantastic event hosted by Actons hotel and weddings with a marquee on the lawn.

Entrants from all over Ireland, the best chefs compete to be crowned with the coveted Best Chowder in Ireland. It started 13 years ago with a one-day event and has now grown to a 4-day event. From a fashion show to street food festival to an array of entertainment including trad sessions, stilt walkers, balloon makers and much much more.
