– to satisfy even the fussiest foodie
Our guide’s in-depth knowledge of the food scene in Dublin really added to the tour and everybody, including the locals, made some great discoveries. I wish I could recount all the historical and cultural details for you but that would spoil the surprise. You’ll have to go on a Fab Food Trail yourself and rediscover your city through its food.
‘Dublin’s food sector is now so large and diverse I would highly recommend taking on the three-hour, guided tour on which you’ll visit bakeries, food halls ..... cheesemongers, wine shops.....’
By way of exercise (ahem), we take a foodie tour… Headed up by knowledgeable Eveleen Coyle, it’s a great way to find goodies that simply wouldn’t have occurred to me .
Eveleen Coyle and her niece Alice Coyle had a brilliant concept for food tasting trails in 2009. They started in Dublin but have extended to Cork. It’s a wonderful way to explore a city, learn about its history and food culture in a fun and light-hearted way. Visit and learn in markets, food halls, cheesemongers, butchers, fruit and flower stalls, fish mongers, bakers and have regular tastings.
…this is very much the gold standard for urban food tours in Ireland – and thankfully, one that adapts and evolves to include new trends, stores and scenes as it grows.
If you find yourself in Dublin, take a food tour and try some of the awesome food that is available in the city. My guide Eveleen was friendly and very knowledgeable about the local food scene and everything in Dublin. You could tell that she also really made an effort to get to know each person in the group. It really showed her passion for her job.
If you’re in a time crunch, you’ll get the essence of Irish cuisine in this half-day walking tour through the food culture of Dublin. The tasty trip stops at a host of establishments from a market and a cheesemonger to a chocolate shop and a Victorian bar. Tours are offered on Saturdays and occasional Thursdays, and reservations can be made through the Fab Food website. (Tip: wear your fat pants.)
... it’s hard to keep track such is the pace of change on the food scene. The jaunty Eveleen Coyle has a veritable feast for her trails… It’s a snack fest, an easy amble and a trail where every crumb is scoffed.
Fab Food Trails, whose gastronomic walking tours of Dublin explore the city’s culinary treats, had introduced a series of walks spiced up with fashion stops. Taste the food, try on the fashion is their slogan. Leisurely, sociable and fun.
...visit boutiques and eateries you never knew existed – like a tourist, only very fashionable. A mood takes over. Maggie Armstrong rediscovered her city through very different eyes.
A tasting and cultural walk around lesser-know parts of Dublin, and even for those who think they know the city, it is full of surprises.
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.
Just when you think you know a city, along comes a walking tour and unearths yet more hidden gems. And clandestine treasure doesn’t come much tastier than Fab Food Trails Dublin walking tour.
Fab Food Trails takes place around Dublin’s hotspots and hidden gems. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun.
Eveleen Coyle’s Fab Food Trails in Dublin and Cork are a must! They help orient you in the cities while giving you excellent food tips. You will find yourself going back.
