Jim was extremely knowledgeable about food and it’s cultural, social and political connection to Irish history and identity. I would take this tour first so you can go back and eat at all the restaurants he tells you about (can’t do them all on a single tour). Fun and delicious experience!
Kevin was great and we enjoyed the tour; learned a lot and he selected very good spots. Might be a little pricey for some people. That’s the only reason why I hesitated to leave 5 stars. I think we payed over $120 per person. Closer to $90 would have been more appropriate relative to similar small group tours.
Context has put together an entertaining food tour that weaves the Irish food experience with historical stories. Our guide, Kevin, took us exploring into locations that only locals would frequent. The food experiences took us through morning break and then on into lunch. He talked about how being a member of the EU has changed food production and consumption in Ireland for the better. A great example is the cheeses that he selects for you to sample. (People have come from other cheese-rich cultures such as France and have expanded the cheese market here in Ireland.) Kevin had a superb narrative through it all and answered any questions along the way. This tour was one of the highlights of our week in Dublin!
