Kinsale Food Tours Media Kit

With so many glorious venues on our doorstep, Kinsale is a mecca for tourists and Irish alike who flock here for our wonderful food. For a food fanatic, this is a particular treat, having a rich hinterland and coastline which provides us with the freshest and most fabulous food and people.

The Kinsale Food Tours was the brainchild of Suzanne Burns who returned to Ireland after over a decade living abroad. She set up the tours in 2016 combining her experience as a Marine Biologist, Wildlife guide and serious foodie! She is passionate about showcasing the wonderful food, producers and venues of this unique town.

The tours have become renowned both locally and internationally, having been featured extensively in Irish, UK, US and European media. Our food tours showcase Kinsale in 3 completely different ways.

Town Food Tours

Our town food tours are like a walking meal which take you to a selection of different eateries. We start with lighter fare for our tastings, experiencing a range of different local foods. As the tour goes on, you will have more substantial fare and round it off with some artisanal sweet treats. All food and one hot drink are included in each tour. During the tour you will hear stories about the food and meet some of the fascinating characters who make it too. The town tours last approx 2.5 hours and happen hail, rain or shine. The tour is akin to a walking meal, so come hungry!

Public Tour times: 2.30pm- 5pm (Mon-Friday)

Foraging & Picnic Tour

Ideal for the outdoor enthusiast and foodie. We offer foraging trips as part of an outdoor food tour where we visit the coast, and learn about edible seaweeds, shellfish and plants. We provide a gourmet picnic as part of this tour and incorporate some pre-prepared wild food by some of our local producers. If the weather is bad, we still run the foraging tour and give you the picnic to take away for later consumption. Tour duration: Normally 2-2.5 hours.

Tour times: Mon-Fri (tide dependent).
