Poitin, craft beers, a little jazz and wine, Kombucha and coffee are just some of the refreshment highlights all paired with signature small plates from the Black Cat, share platters from Oslo Bar, Seasonal veggie boards in The Nest and a sweet treat or two from Murrays local bakery.

Where to sample all these bites? Well, Galway Food Tours will go touring through Salthill on Wednesday 22 August with everything the food enthusiast could want!

Taking to the coastal streets of Salthill, this food tour will showcase the best of what this seaside village has to offer. From signature Galway roasted coffee, to the now internationally acclaimed Micil Poitin - the food tour plans to really show Salthill off. 

The tour will begin at Micil Poitin new distillery where Padraig will talk through the making process and legalisation of this traditional Irish spirit, all whilst guests will enjoy a Cocktail Aperitif. Then onto Oslo Pub which is owned by the Galway Brewery. 

Here their impressive selection of beers and international brews will be paired with tasty bites and there will be a talk on the microbrewery scene. Crossing the street to the Black Cat, the talk will turn to jazz and to accompany this, guests will taste a couple of their signature dishes paired with a glass of wine of course!

Moving on to the Funky boutique hostel, The Nest where Agatha Lisik (Who has a Masters in microbiology, she comes from a Polish tradition of pickling) will give a talk and a practical approach to fermentation/pickling and Kombucha making. This will be accompanied by seasonal veggie treats.

Finally, it’s onto the Barista Bus to sample the delights of Calendar Coffee Roaster and sweet Treats from local café/bakery - Murray’s.

The tour will kick off at 6pm. Tickets, €75 are available from www.galwayfoodtours.com or call Gosia 087-6444678.
