Galway Food Tours started in 2015 by Sheena Dignam, the business has found its feet and its voice with Irish people on staycations and international tourists and will take place on Wednesday 22 August this year.
Sheena, who is now joined by Gosia Letowska, is on the streets of Galway showcasing the real Ireland, the incredible food, produce and most of all people who are behind what we are now seeing in our shops and on our plates.
Telling stories and sharing a slice of life is why people travel. Getting that insider culture and the real where to eat, drink, enjoy life in that city is invaluable.
The tour will begin at Micil Poitin new distillery where Padraig will talk through the making process and legalisation of this traditional Irish spirit, all whilst guests will enjoy a Cocktail Aperitif.
Then onto Oslo Pub which is owned by the Galway Brewery.
Here their Impressive selection of beers and international brews will be paired with tasty bites and there will be a talk on the microbrewery scene. Crossing the street to the Black Cat, the talk will turn to jazz and to accompany this, guests will taste a couple of their signature dishes paired with a glass of wine of course!
Onto the Funky boutique hostel, The Nest where Agatha Lisik (Who has a Masters in microbiology, she comes from a Polish tradition of pickling) will give a talk and a practical approach to fermentation/pickling and Kombucha making. This will be accompanied by seasonal veggie treats.
Finally, it’s onto the Barista Bus to sample the delights of Calendar Coffee Roaster and sweet Treats from local café/bakery – Murray’s.
