Join me in my 18th century thatched cottage in Ballymorran Bay, only 30 minutes from Belfast.

Join me in my 18th century thatched cottage, on the shores of Strangford Lough for a truly authentic traditional Irish bread making experience.

We are located only 30 minutes from Belfast in an area of outstanding natural beauty.

After a warm welcome and morning coffee Northern Irish style with homemade sweet treats to enjoy, we will get to work. Aprons on – we will make soda bread, wheaten / brown bread and potato bread. You will learn how to make these breads in a relaxed and cosy farmhouse kitchen with other locals and tourists alike. It's all about the experience, and this is very unique!

All breads made are griddle breads which means that they are ready within 7 - 10 minutes! The smell of freshly baked breads will make you hungry, and you'll no doubt be nibbling as your breads are ready! You will take away a big bag filled with freshly made breads and a copy of all recipes used in the class.
