Galway has long been a place where locals and tourists collide while eating and drinking their way around the sights and sounds of the city, because that’s just what you do in Galway.
Walking tours are great craic right? There’s nothing more interesting than listening to a tour guide ramble off a script of concocted stories along a well-worn path through the city – said nobody ever!
The West is alive right now and the food scene in the city is better than you’ll find anywhere else in the country. The trouble with visiting new places though is that often you’ll read traveller and critic reviews, but rarely get on the ground tips from the people that really know where it’s at, but we have a solution!
Throw out the guidebooks and forget about Tripadvisor reviews. If you want to meet the people behind the scenes and get on a tour that takes you to the gastronomic hotspots of Galway city you need to be led around by someone that knows exactly where to go.
Sheena from Kai Café and Restaurant is on the pulse of the Galway food scene right now, and she knows the people that know the people that you would never get a chance to meet unless you knew where to go. Realising that she had a great network of foodie compadres, Sheena decided to put together Galway’s first and only walking food tour.
“Around the Market Place” is a tour around Galway’s finest foodie destinations. Sheena will guide you along the streets of Galway where you will meet artisanal producers and sample their products, while soaking up the alluring atmosphere of the west. Running Friday to Sunday you will sample the finest cheese, the freshest oysters, and the sweetest treats.
If you make it on a Saturday and Sunday the tour will include an unforgettable experience with some of the most memorable Galway market traders and their fare. All days will include visits to award winning restaurants and cafes.
The finer details:
Maximum of 10 people per Tour
Friday 11AM €20 (excludes Market)
Saturday + Sunday 12noon €25 (including market)
