Itinerary

9:00am - Departs from the Molly Malone Statue on Suffolk street
This Food and Drink tour departs from the Molly Malone Statue on Suffolk Street. We have to stress that our tours leave on time so we highly recommend that you are at the meeting point ten minutes early.  Your guide will meet you, introduce himself and you’ll meet your travel companions for the journey. We’ll make our way out of the city heading north. Your driver will point out some interesting landmarks that you might visit on your return to Dublin such as the famous Croke Park Stadium.
10:00am - Martry Mills
Say hi to James who has worked and been part of this mill all his life. His family has worked this mill since 1859. James will explain how this fascinating contraption works from the water wheel that powers the mill, to making the finished product.  You will take some flour with you to bake your very own bread later in the tour!
”11:15am
The spire was built in 1791 by the Earl of Bective as a memorial to his father, a seafaring man. From this point you have spectacular views over five counties.  Where could be a better place to learn about Irish whiskey, how it’s made and sample some of our very best brands. The very barley and water that are key ingredients of whiskey would have come from the pastures and fields around this very point.

”12:00pm
Next we visit one of the most engaging and interesting farmers you’ll ever meet.  ‘Maperath’ is a family run Turkey farm and Eoin, the farmer, will give you an intriguing insight into life on a farm and his ecofriendly way of life.  After a tour of the farm you’ll get a change to put your flour from the mill to use and bake some bread which you’ll have with some hearty homemade soup or stew on the farm. 
”2:00pm
.Michael Finnagen from Boyne Valley Blue Goats Cheese has 300 goats that he looks after with loving care to produce some of Ireland’s best quality goats cheese.  Michael will take you around the farm to meet his goats and show you what’s involved in getting his cheese from the goat to your plate ! Enjoy a delicious tasting before you leave.
2:00pm - Orchard and award winning Cider Brewer
 We finally visit an apple orchard and home to Cockagee Cider.  Mark, is an award winning cider producer has been making this prized liquid for many happy years.  Produced on his home farm, Mark will take you to see his orchard and explain how apple cider is made before you finally get to taste some samples.  What a wonderful way to finish this foodie fiesta !
