The Skipper Restaurant, a Cape Cod favorite, serving up delicious
treats for guests at the 2012 Taste of Ireland event

Massachusetts has become home to so many Irish immigrants throughout its long history and with them came an abundance of traditional Irish dishes and desserts. To celebrate the restaurants that bring this Old Country taste to our tables, please join us at the 15th Annual Taste of Ireland event on Sunday, February 10, 2012. For a flat entry fee of $15, attendees will have the opportunity to sample Irish dishes from a wide range of Cape Cod area restaurants. Whether you consider yourself a connoisseur of Irish specialty breads, seafood dishes, comfort food classics, soups, or desserts, you’ll have plenty to choose from.
The event, which starts at 1:00pm, (the free immigration and citizenship advice clinic starts at 10:30 to 12:30pm) is once again being hosted by the Cape Cod Irish Village in South Yarmouth. Participating restaurants have donated their efforts and all proceeds will benefit the Irish International Immigrant Center. While the food is the main attraction for most people, the event is really a celebration of Irish culture. “The afternoon will be packed,” Ann Marie Cugno of the IIIC says, and will feature live Irish music, dancing, and a wide range of activities for kids. Raffle prizes include items donated by local businesses and art galleries, and gift certificates to local restaurants. “This is a brilliant occasion for families,” Cugno adds, and a “perfect way to get everyone out of the house on a winter Sunday.”
Mark your calendar for February 10th for what promises to be a great afternoon of food, music, and craic or make a weekend of it by staying at the Cape Cod Irish Village offering special package rates!
