Where We Go
On our award winning Dublin Walking Tour, Dublin Tasting Trail, we visit a range of bakeries, food halls, street markets, cheesemongers, delicatessens and other speciality shops. You’ll meet artisans whose families have traded for generations producing great food as well as new arrivals to the food scene bringing new international tastes and food ideas to the Irish table. And you will taste Irish produce served in both traditional and contemporary styles.
As you enjoy the food, you’ll also learn a little about the culture and history of each neighbourhood. Those familiar with the city will be amazed to discover food outlets and tasty surprised they never knew existed and visitors will leave with an insider and up to date knowledge of the best of what is happening food-wise in Ireland.
Our gentle 2.5 hour culinary walk has lots of stops with frequent, generous tastings along the way. We point out good places for lunch, dinner or a pint, though after all the tastings you won’t need lunch for a little while after this tour.
We cater for vegetarians and all other dietary requirements. Please let us know in advance.

‘As a Dubliner who has been writing about food for a decade, there was, I thought, nothing you could tell me that I didn’t already know. I had to doff my critic’s cap to Eveleen Coyle for her in-depth knowledge of the Irish foodscape, which was served with humour and seasoned with fascinating snippets of history. …a great way to see obscure pockets of Dublin.’
‘Fab Food Trails takes place around Dublin’s hotspots and hidden gems. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun.’
