Craic’n Food & Drink Tour
Lough Neagh Tours offer a range of authentic experiences, perfect for foodies who want to sample delicious food and drink from the area surrounding Lough Neagh and its Waterways. Their full day tours take you on a journey into the wild and rugged Lough Neagh landscape and give you an insight into how important the Lough was as a food source from the first arrival of man to Ireland.
On the Craic ‘n Food & Drink tour, you will meet a local fisherman and sample some traditionally cooked Lough Neagh eels. Then you will visit Ballyriff Buffalo farm and learn about the habits of these amazing creatures before sampling their tasty meat. Visit a quirky venue for tastings of local produce, followed by a visit to Crosskey’s Inn, Ireland’s oldest thatched pub, famed for its toe-tapping traditional music sessions.
Their Moira Food & Drink Tour offers an equally exciting experience, where you will participate in a little foraging, enjoy nettle tea and nettle biscuits, tour a brewery and sample potato vodka, eat a gourmet lunch of local produce and dine high in a converted cow shed – they promise you’ll love it!
Their Heartland Food & Drink Tour is just as quirky, explore a picturesque orchard, hear the family story and tour the production site, enjoy apple baked treats and sample ciders, vinegars and juices. They’ll then take you to a private grade two listed Georgian house, you’ll enjoy a delicious buffet showcasing local and homegrown produce, you’ll finish the day with a Guinness pouring lesson in the most fabulous pub ever.
The tours depart from Belfast with local pick up options. They sell individual tickets (£80pp) and also offer private tours for groups. For full details and to purchase tickets visit www.loughneaghtours.com
