New for 2018, the Heartland Food & Drink Tour has been added to the popular and unique Lough Neagh Tours portfolio and will depart Belfast on 12 May, 2 June and 9 June.
Hosted by Lough Neagh Partnership, the Heartlands Food & Drink Tour departs Belfast and takes visitors into the heart of Co Armagh and Co Tyrone on this all day tour which leaves the city at 10.00am and returns at 5.30pm.
Foodies will be impressed by the first stop at the award winning Harnett’s Oils just off the motorway which links Belfast to Dublin. Harnett Oils cold-pressed rapeseed and hemp oils are made from crops grown on the family run farm and are a delicious accompaniment to any salad. Visitors will be met by owner Jane Harnett and you will have the option to purchase some takeaway samples.
If you enjoy a glass of cider, the next stop on the tour will tingle your tastebuds as you sample some Long Meadow Cider. You will be met by owners Pat and Catherine McKeever who will take you on a tour of the business and orchard before letting you loose on samples of ciders, apple juices and cider vinegars.
At Crannagael House, a grade two listed Georgian house, you’ll enjoy a delicious buffet showcasing the produce on the tour. Owned by the same family today who built it in the mid 18th century, you will be able to wander the gardens at Crannagael House and sample the homemade chutneys and sloe gin.
The last stop on the Heartlands Food & Drink Tour takes in Co Tyrone where visitors will stop off at a real gem of a pub in Moy which has been in the same family for 300 years. At Tomney’s Bar you’ll have the opportunity to pour yourself the perfect pint of Guinness and you might even receive a certificate for your efforts!
