Ireland’s Ancient Feasts

This tour takes you on a journey through Ireland’s rich food heritage.

 

We take one of our most iconic dishes, Smoked Salmon on Soda Bread and go back to its source. A Watermill producing stone ground flour for almost 200 years, the Mill, untouched by modern machinery

 

You will visit fisherman Mick Walsh in his home to see how Smoked Salmon was made traditionally, using an 80 year old smoke-house.

 

 

Finally, we see a little of the “Upper Crust” on a tour of Colclough Walled Gardens. Over 200 years old, you will discover how the landed classes created the perfect micro-climate to grow exotic fruits and vegetables in Ireland’s normally cold and wet climate.
