Delicious Dublin Food Tours
This isn’t your typical food tour! Your guide won't treat you as ‘a customer’ but as a friend. She will show you some of her favourite spots as well as telling you about Irish food history and the current food scene and trends. You won't eat a typical Dublin coddle or visit touristy pubs, we leave that to others! You will spend over three hours wandering the streets of Dublin, stopping at cafés and food shops for talks and tastings. So if you want you to have an 'off the beaten track' and personable experience, then this is the tour for you.
