Craic ‘n Food and Drink Tour


The Craic ‘n Food & Drink Tour is perfect for foodies who want to sample delicious food & drink from the area surrounding Lough Neagh & Its Waterways. This full day tour takes you on a journey into the wild and rugged Lough Neagh landscape and gives you an insight into how important the Lough was as a food source from the first arrival of man to Ireland.


On the tour, you will meet a local fisherman, and sample some traditionally cooked Lough Neagh eels, you will visit Ballyriff Buffalo Farm and learn about the habits of these amazing creatures before sampling their tasty meat, you will visit a hidden foodie kitchen for tastings of local beers, cheeses, oatcakes, oils & chutneys, and enjoy a brief tour.  The final stop of the tour is at the Crosskeys Inn, Ireland’s oldest thatched pub, famed for its toe-tapping traditional music sessions, which you will experience along with the local craic – you won’t go home hungry from this tour!


Tickets are priced at £80pp to include return transport, and plenty of food and drink sampling.  The tour departs from Belfast with a pick up at Antrim & Toomebridge on pre-scheduled dates through-out the season.
