Food and Drink


WELCOME to The Daily Click, where we put the spotlight on businesses in County Clare with an online shop. The Clare Echo is asking local people to get behind Clare businesses, and to think local before visiting international shopping websites. Today, we are showcasing many of the local food and drink producers as well as places to eat. Go ahead, give them a click and explore some of the unique offerings that would make for a very thoughtful Christmas present.

This series is part of The Clare Echo’s #clickforclare initiative, supported by Local Enterprise Office Clare.
