Getting a Real Taste of Salthill

Galway Food Tours will go touring through Salthill on Wednesday 22nd August with everything the food enthusiast could want!

Poitin, craft beers, a little jazz and wine, Kombucha and coffee are just some of the refreshment highlights, all paired with signature small plates from the Black Cat, share platters from Oslo Bar, Seasonal veggie boards in The Nest and a sweet treat or two from Murray's local bakery.

Galway Food Tours started in 2015 by Sheena Dignam. The business has found its feet and its voice with Irish people on staycations and international tourists. Now Sheena is joined by fellow tour guide Gosia Letowska.

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 Poitin - this food tour will show Salthill off.

The tour will begin at Micil Poitin’s new distillery, where Padraig will talk through the making process and legalisation of this traditional Irish spirit, while guests will enjoy a cocktail aperitif. Then onto Oslo Pub which is owned by the Galway Brewery. Here their impressive selection of beers and international brews will be paired with tasty bites and there will be a talk on the microbrewery scene. Crossing the street to the Black Cat, the talk will turn to jazz and to accompany this, guests will taste a couple of their signature dishes paired with a glass of wine.

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.

Finally, it’s onto the Barista Bus to sample the delights of Calendar Coffee Roaster and sweet treats from local café/bakery Murray’s.

The tour will kick off at 6pm. Tickets, €75 are available from www.galwayfoodtours.com or call Gosia 087-6444678.
