Broadcaster and Publisher, Norah Casey said : “The combination of great food and a strong mix of musical talents made this boutique festival different. The heart of the Westport Festival was a vibrant artistic line-up but an eclectic mix of chefs, from the Michelin star supremoes to the skilled country house cooks created a vibrant mix of gastronomy and music.
Westport, famous for its warm and welcoming atmosphere, also holds the unique title of Irelands Best Place to Live.
