6 Day Epic Ireland Food Tour

Experience The Authentic Taste of Ireland

We've cooked up a truly special experience: a 6 day food tour of Ireland packed with delicious Irish food, craft beer, whiskey, and more! Ireland has a thriving culinary scene based on high-quality produce and a passion for fusing tradition with experimentation. We should warn you, however: this is no sleepy food tour of Ireland.

This is a real taste of Ireland tour, giving you the chance to harvest seaweed, shuck your own Irish oysters, and even forage for wild Irish berries and herbs. For a compact 6 day itinerary in Ireland, you’ll be amazed at how much you can see, do and taste!

🥧 Adventure options are baked-in to our 6 Day Vagabond Epic Ireland Food Tour. Flexible activities like sea kayaking and hiking make this an active Vagabond Tour rather than an easy-going Driftwood Tour.

Feefo - 6 Day Epic Ireland Food Tour

Delightful and Delicious
View on FeeFo
Thanks for the wonderful tour. Brian was a welcoming, informative, and fun guide. It was a great way to experience Ireland for the first time. A wide breadth of food types (seaweed, beer, potatoes, fish, nettles, and even sushi), as well as wondefull locations. Even though we weren't as prepared for the rain as we should have been, Brian was accommodating, and we were still able to see the breath taking scenery and have a wonderful time.
Product : The route was great. Starting with a tour in Galway, and finishing with another in Kinsale, really capped off a wonderful few days in between of sight seeing, eating, and learning.

Rob and team did a great job handling the details and getting us off the tourist routes. We were on roads I never could have found. The guide was great and the accommodations were amazing. Seaweed foraging, black pudding spring rolls, Irish Buffalo mozzarella? Who knew!?!?
Product : Great way to explore Ireland's history, lands and foods. A really well curated tour!

"A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE"

Group dining together on a 7 day Ireland food tour

The 6 Day Epic Food Tour is a fun and unique way to see and experience Ireland!

I loved learning from the locals everywhere we went and have even implemented some of the things I learned now that I'm back home!

John took EXCELLENT care of our group from curating great playlists to sharing facts/movies/books to booking us in for meals since many places were pretty crowded with families on holiday.

I would do this tour over again in a heartbeat!

"AMAZING ITINERARY"

Two guests hiking on a 7 day Northern Ireland tour

This company does a great job with fun and knowledgeable staff, small group sizes, itineraries that aren't possible on a large coach bus, and busy, but not too busy, off-the-beaten path experiences.

Both our guides were gifted at "reading the room" and tailoring the days to our group(and the weather).

I highly recommend Vagabond!

"FABULOUS TRIP"

Group eating ice cream together on a 7 day food tour of Ireland

Anything I say will be insufficient in describing the fabulous trip we had!

The group of 15 on the trip was made up of a single senior, several pairs of friend, and couples. We interacted well with all and socialized at group meals and on the comfortable Mercedes bus.

Everything about Ireland is fantastic: food, beer, people, sites, sounds, smells, and history.

But what’s makes a trip extra special is a tour guide that knows where to go, when to go, all there is to know about those sites, and provides insight that is not generally available.
