The award-winning Galway Food Tours is taking visitors behind the curtain this summer to meet the people responsible for the city’s mouth watering delights.

The Meet the Maker tour will combine food and the unique characters in Galway who bring the best of what is on offer to life.

Kicking it all off is Mike Browne on Thursday, April 20, the charming oyster guy, who you will instantly fall for.

An artist and gaeilgeoir, Mike has had a stall selling oysters on Galway’s famous market for over 17 years.

He will talk you through what is involved in getting the oysters from these shores to our plates…while serving you the freshest local oysters!

After meeting Mike, you will take a short walk to one of Galway’s award-winning restaurants for a delicious meal and wine pairing…finishing the evening off with a nightcap in our favourite local bar!

The second event in the series of tours will see people meet Teresa Roche of the award-winning Kylemore Farmhouse Cheese.

Teresa is a qualified nurse who returned from overseas to start her business on the family farm, using only cattle born and reared on the farm.

A fourth generation dairy farmer, Teresa’s family have been farming their land for over 200 years.

Tickets are €100 and are available from
