The Shore Food Tour

The Shore Food Tour

Taste The Island

The Shore Food Tour is all about the local traditions of Lough Neagh. This tour gives you an insight into how important the Lough was as a food source from the first arrival of man to Ireland.  You will begin the day with a tour of the Lough Neagh Fisheries Visitor centre, you’ll learn fascinating facts about the industry and get the opportunity to hold a live eel (if you dare) and get a glimpse into the fishing traditions that have been the life blood of this area for generations.  On the tour, you will meet a local fisherman, and enjoy a three course lunch with some traditionally cooked Lough Neagh Eels & Pollan, with breads freshly baked by the fisherman’s wife and served in the idyllic surroundings of the Lock Keepers Cottage.  A local fisherman will take you on a short boat trip, he’ll tell tales of the life of a fisherman and you might even be lucky enough to see a real fishing boat in operation.  We’ll take you to Ireland’s oldest thatched pub, where you’ll enjoy Whiskey & chocolate tasting along with a toe- tapping trad music session.

Tickets are priced at approx £65pp (minimum 15) to include return transport, tour of the fisheries visitor centre with samples, lunch, a boat trip, Whiskey and chocolate tasting and trad music.
