Loved it!
Michelle_S, Mar 2023
Absolutely loved this tour! Small group, great food, lots of information, and even sampled some whisky. We learned a ton about Galway and the food scene, ate things I would’ve never thought to order, and had an all around amazing afternoon!
Good food but not very much of it.
Melissa_B, Jun 2022
The food was good, but I was surprised at how little of it we got to try given the price of the experience. The flourless chocolate cake was the best part. Our guide was great - knowledgeable and friendly.

This was an absolutely amazing experience for my husband and I. We got lucky and no one else signed up for a tour on the day that we did it, so we had a private tour. Our guide was GREAT!! She was so knowledgable about the city, history and places that we visited - she made our tour experience so awesome! The only thing I would recommend is that you take cash to tip. I felt so terrible at the end of our tour because we didn't have an euro to tip her and she deserved it. 3 hours well spent!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND
A MUST do!

Fabulous Food Walking Tour

I had booked this tour for my father, sister and me as a Christmas gift to my father as he was taking my sister and me to Ireland. We all really loved this experience and agreed it was one of the highlights of the trip. The tour is a balanced presentation of both traditional and new food trends in Galway. Everything we sampled was excellent! Our tour guide was informative and friendly and we could not have asked for a better two hours. I would recommend this tour to anyone traveling to Galway.
Not to be missed!

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Ireland! I highly recommend that anyone visiting Galway start their visit with this tour! Sheena was an excellent guide and went out of her way to make sure everyone was taken care of- she even bought a brownie for me when an allergy prohibited me from sampling a strawberry tart that was part of the tour. I feel that we experienced a hidden side of Irish local food, culture and history that locals are aware of but not visitors. I cannot say enough good things about our experience!

The tour was fun and entertaining. We enjoyed going into cozy tea shops, salty taverns and restaurants with new cuisine. I think we were introduced to the variety of foods Galway had to offer. Our tour guide was interesting and helpful. I enjoyed the tour very much.

Mahina D, Nov 2017
Really enjoyed this tour! Found it to be so informative and interesting. Its a good mix of food and alcohol. You also get a lot of things to try which we loved : We booked late so we ended up going on this tour the day before we left. I wish we could have taken it on our first day, it would have helped up decide on places to eat! This one sells out people, so book early!!!

Elizabeth J, Oct 2017
It seemed an odd and random assortment of food stops, with too many sweet offerings in the mix. The guide was a nice enough woman, but didn't provide much information about the stops or the city, and was hard to hear when she did.

Russel T, Jun 2017
Wonderful experience, plenty of food and a knowledgeable host. Absolutely the best food and drink tour we've been on!! Tour provides a pleasant walk through Galway and manages to stop at cheese shops, liquor, beer, pastries, chocolate and the newer trendy hot spots!

Katja, Apr 2017
What a great way to spend an afternoon in Galway and get to know the city better through a foodie's eyes. Our guide Sheena gave us some great insights into Galway's drink & food culture and the city itself. The tastings were delicious and the walk itself helped us to get a good overview of the city. I would definitely recommend!

Tarryn C, Feb 2017
We had a great time! Would absolutely recommend. There are so many great stops and they can only fit so many on one tour, so we would love to do the others next time. Would like option to purchase items during the tour, purhaps even a courier to hold purchases for pickup at last stop. Five stars!!
