Discover coastal foraging at Rostrevor

Discover delicious wild food along the Rostrevor coast by joining Ulster Wildlife, Love your Lough, and Forage Ireland on Thursday 17th August for a coastal foraging walk and tasting session.

Find out how to harvest wild food sustainably, what’s good to eat and what isn’t, and learn more about the wildlife of our accessible shores.

Speaking to Newry Times, Dave Wall, Living Seas Officer with Ulster Wildlife said, “Many people in Northern Ireland have tried foods that can be foraged along our coasts, such as mussels and dulse, but there are plenty more delicious plants, seaweeds and animals to be found.

Dave added, “A lot of foods can easily be foraged sustainably, providing tasty, healthy meals without harming our coastal ecosystems.”
