You will walk through the cobblestoned streets of Dublin and explore regional food sold by your host's favorite vendors. You will stop at four to five spots that include an oyster bar, seafood cafe, traditional pub for a stew tasting or a contemporary cafe for an artisanal Irish cheese and meat tasting, as well as an ice-cream shop that specializes in making ice cream from the rich milk of the Kerry cow! You might learn about what flavor to expect from an oyster depending on its origin or indulge your taste buds in three traditional Irish stews - lamb, beef and coddle (sausage). 

Learn about the sustainable food traditions of Ireland, and taste a variety of Irish food during this eye-opening tour with a knowledgeable Irishman!

An Irish native, your guide Jim is extremely passionate about local Irish food, its origins and the global influences that have made Irish cuisine what it is today. A natural chef, Jim has worked in the food business for several years and is keen to share with travelers his depth of knowledge and love of Irish food history. A qualified national guide, Jim says that it’s never about the tour, it’s always about the people. He enjoys connecting with people and communicates the cleanliness of Irish food derived from its beautiful pastures, rich soil and clear Atlantic water. With Jim, you will gain awareness of the origins of a product, from tasting the subtle flavors of grass in local Irish artisanal butter to the taste of limestone in a particular variety of oysters. The Irish believe deeply in the farm-to-fork tradition - Jim says that environmental awareness is not something that Ireland has learned, it is something they have never forgotten.

Your tour will last about two and a half hours during which you will cover approximately two miles on foot. Depending on your dietary preferences and restrictions, Jim is happy to customize the tour for you. Jim can also be flexible on time so if you prefer an earlier or later start, let him know in the notes section when making your reservation request.
