Did you know?

Despite being over 2,000 miles and an ocean apart, the country of Malta and County Down in Northern Ireland have several things in common.

The worldwide phenomenon, Game of Thrones is filmed in both places, both Malta and County Down have a large craft scene as well as links to Christian heritage. Their most notable similarity however is that they both hold an annual Potato Festival.

Comber hosts the Comber Earlies Food Festival while Malta holds the Malta Qrendi Potato and Agrarian festival in May 2018 (Sunday 27). Both events are held in the potato harvest hub and these festivals are very popular among tourists and locals alike, offering visitors the opportunity to re-discover the rural aspect of the land.

The potato festivals are a wonderful day out for the whole family, with many savoury potato-based traditional gourmet dishes available.

If you’re daring enough you can try potato cinnamon ice-cream and a potato cocktail at the Malta Qrendi Potato and Agrarian festival.
