Welcome to A Taste of Bandon

A Town of Foodie Aficionados


Welcome to the Taste of Bandon, our autumn celebration of abundance, where we also revel in our Harry Potter connection with the Bandon Banshee.  

Droichead Na Banndan means the Bridge of the Wise Woman and encouraged by JK Rowlings reference to the Bandon Banshee in the Chamber of Secrets, we seek to celebrate our food heritage, restaurants, independent stores and our cultural capital.  

We hope to meet all the family over the October bank holiday weekend – we have something for every foodie, ranging from our Bandon Tapas Trail to Seafood Cookery Classes.

We have Kitchen Spells workshops to revisit some of our forgotten skills –  Bee Keeping, Sourdough Bread Making and Preserving the Harvest.  

Our massive Harry Potter Parade for a Guinness World Record and Bandon Market Trail are going to be great family events.

Foodies of all ages are catered for with Winning Performance Food Q & A session from some our local sporting heroes, to Cookie Monsters for hungry under eights, to a special Pizza Passport offering a bank holiday Banshee deal.   

That’s not all, we are offering great prizes for the best Hogwarts inspired shop window AND the best Halloween house in Bandon.  So dust off your wants and get into the spirit!!!   

Many events are free or nominal to cover costs.  Whatever the weather, we are up for a soiree, so why not join us.
