Trail and Food Week helps put
Tyrone on the foodie map

A food trail showcasing food producers, restaurants, accommodation providers and tourist attractions across the Tyrone region has been developed by Flavour of Tyrone. Called the Flavour of Tyrone Food Trail, the map will act as a guide and signpost visitors, across the region, to discover a taste of Tyrone.

The trail, which was officially launched during Tyrone Food Week (18th-23rd Feb), was developed by Flavour of Tyrone Good Food Circle and illustrated by local artist/designer Patricia Conlin.   The Good Food Circle has 25 members  and was created with the aim of enhancing the customer experience through high standard, top quality food using local produce. The participating restaurants are regularly and rigorously examined to ensure these standards are upheld.
