Dublin Food Tour
From Potatoes to Oysters
Catherine’s education and life experiences are steeped in Irish food culture, history and the arts. She is the first of six people to graduate in six hundred years from the island with a degree in Law and the Irish (Gaelic) language. While working in that field, she translated the Children’s Act into the Irish language and was acknowledged in a book on the Irish language version of the constitution. She is a social entrepreneur having founded a dance organisation at university level that is now in its 17th year. It has given hundreds of people the opportunity to take up or to continue dancing at a high level. She credits her close knit mother’s family and her ancestors from the Tipperary mountains for her love of Irish mythology, dance, nature and storytelling. She is a Fáilte Ireland qualified tour guide and loves to interact with newcomers to Ireland through her own uniquely developed narrative. Having just finished a Masters in wellbeing psychology, she is well placed to look after yours! Céad míle fáilte romhaibh go hEireann.
Hello my name is Adam and I've been guiding in Dublin City for over 5 years now. Having grown up in rural Ireland I moved to Dublin to attend university where I atained a degree in history and politics and a masters in history - finishing top of my class. I began my guiding career in the historic Kilmainham Gaol where Ireland's founding fathers were executed by Britain for their role in leading the 1916 Easter Rising. Following on from this I have worked in Ireland's national museum as well as running both coach and walking tous for a plethora of organisations. In total I've guided tens of thousands of people around Dublin and love to combine stories of Irish history and culture to give you a perspective on what has shaped my country and the people who live here.
