Upwards of three thousand people turned out for the tenth anniversary opening of the Taste of Donegal Food Festival last evening in Donegal Town.

The event is now one of the biggest events in the Donegal calendar and queues were forming as early as 3.30pm.

As always there will be stands offering the best in Irish food and drink, kitchen products and hospitality. Some of the finest chefs from Ireland and beyond will share their expertise in the ever popular cookery demonstrations. And local talent will be celebrated too, through the chef competitions running throughout the weekend.

A Taste of Donegal Food Festival 2018 is taking place on the Pier Area in Donegal Town from Friday 24th August to Sunday 26th August 2018.
