This week saw the launch of a popular Cork foor event which will take place next month.

The Cork Gourmet Trail, which will take place on Saturday 22 September, is a culinary tour of Cork City through some of the best restaurants in town.

The trail will start at noon with a drinks reception at the newly refurbished Met Bar at the Metropole Hotel before guest set forth on their tour.

The tantalising trail will include the likes of Amicus, Cask, The Cornstore, Greenes, The Imperial Hotel, Docklands, Tequila Jacks, The Old Town Whiskey Bar at Bodega, Crawford & Co, The New Yorker Bar & Bistro, Olivo and The Oyster Tavern.

The trail will finish at approximately 5pm at which point guests will return to the Metropole Hotel for the Gourmet Trail after party with DJ until 8pm.

Also that evening the Metropole will host a fundraising black tie gala dinner in aid of the RNLI in the Ballroom from 7pm.

Keeping with the gourmet theme each course will be prepared by a separate celebrity chef with live music from Roaring Forties.

Aaron Mansworth, Group General Manager for Trigon Hotels said: “This is such a great way to sample what’s on offer from restaurants and hotels around Cork and is a fantastic opportunity to show off menus.”

Tickets for the Gourmet Trail and the RNLI Ball are currently on sale on Eventbrite at €75 per person for the Gourmet Trail and €65 per person for the black tie gala dinner.

Both the Gourmet Trail and the gala dinner are part of the Murphy’s Cork Oyster and Seafood Festival which is taking place from 21 to 23 September.

The festival will open with a performance from the Cork City Samba Band and throughout the weekend there will be free cookery demonstrations with Bord Bia with Derry Clarke from the renowned L’Ecrivian restaurant in Dublin also in attendance.
