The West of Ireland is without doubt a foodie destination.

Is túisce Deoch ná Scéal.

A drink comes before a story.

From Michelin Star restaurants in Galway City to award winning food trucks in Connemara to a private home dining experience on the Aran Islands, Secret Connemara will take you to places not normally featured on tourist itineraries. Behind all our food experiences is a personal story, lobster fisherman, sheep famers who produce mouth watering Connemara lamb, Oyster and mussel producers and Poitín distillers, all with stories to share with you. Connemara and the islands have a food offering like no other.

Seaweed which is a natural resource in the region is full of goodness and is now featured in a lot of the local cuisine. Listen to the stories of the seaweed harvesters and the products and markets they have developed both nationally and internationally. Join a local Connemara family for lunch or dinner hearing their personal story, the foods associated with emigration from the area, the foods associated with religious festivals and other annual occasions.

A gourmet experience that is local, personal and memorable.
