Taste the Loop < Back
With the aim of offering the best possible experience of the food of Loop Head, the restaurants, food producers, cafés and B&Bs of the peninsula have all come together to establish the Loop Head Food Circle.
The Food Circle charter is a strong commitment to safeguarding food standards and ensuring sustainability. Food Circle members must source as many of their ingredients locally as possible, and they have to include at least two ‘signature’ dishes on their menus.
Look out for the lighthouse symbol in Loop head restaurants, B&Bs and food suppliers – it indicates Food Circle membership, and is your guarantee of quality, freshness and the utmost care – and do be sure to treat yourself to a signature dish wherever you go.
Signature dishes to look out for include seafood chowder, steamed mussels, crab claws, locally-caught fish, and Loop Head beef steaks, as well as homemade breads and desserts. If you’re planning a day out hiking, biking or boating, most hotels and restaurants will put together a picnic for you.
