Galway Food Tours was started in 2015 by Sheena Dignam, and over the last four years the business has found it’s feet and voice with Irish people on staycations and international tourists alike. Now Sheena who is joined by Gosia Letowska is on the streets of Galway showcasing the real Ireland, the incredible food and produce, and most of all; the 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.

Taking to the coastal streets of Salthill, this food tour will showcase the best of what this seaside village has to offer. From signature Galway roasted coffee, to the now internationally acclaimed Micil Poitín – this food tour will show Salthill off.

The tour will begin at Micil Poitin’s new distillery, where Padraig will take you through the making process and legalisation of this traditional Irish spirit, all whilst guests enjoy a Cocktail Aperitif. Then onto Oslo Pub which is owned by the Galway Brewery.

Crossing the street to the Black Cat, the talk will turn to jazz, and to accompany this guests will get to taste a couple of their signature dishes paired with a glass of wine of course!

Then 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.
