Important Information

  • Please check your email the day before the tour to receive important information. Please note that the number of tastings and attractions depends on the selected option. Please advise us in advance of any dietary requirements, such as food allergies or vegetarian options. The tasting includes a full course meal, not just samples. The golden rule in Ireland is to serve enough food for the table to collapse, so we recommended joining the tour on an empty stomach to be able to enjoy each of the dishes. Please note that the described menu is an example only. The types of dishes will vary depending on the visited venue. We will pick the best food options for you depending on availability. For the convenience of all guests, it is best to have 1 licensed guide per maximum of 25 guests, so that all guests can get the best experience, ask questions and hear the guide well. The price will be higher if you need more than 1 guide. The legal drinking age in Ireland is 18.
