Good Food Ireland (GFI)), the first-ever, all industry network to drive Irish food tourism into a new direction, is taking a step further. It is the “Experience Good Food Ireland” contest, which will give the winner a chance to win a spectacular trip to the “Emerald Isle.” The award entails a travel trip for two including a five-day/four-city tour, which will start in New York City and end in Dublin. The winner and a friend would get to stay in one of the finest hotels in Ireland, including trips to the choicest of restaurants, cookery schools and markets.

 

All you need to do is visit www.goodfoodireland.ie/competition and answer a simple question. The entry to this contest is open till December 17th and the winner will have to take the prize before April 30th, 2013. Margaret Jeffares, founder and managing director of GFI, is hopeful that the contest would allow people to learn more about Ireland’s greatest secrets, which are “its locally produced ingredients, great food and great people.”
