Forage for food on the Wild Atlantic Way
Wave-lashed beaches, traditional blacksmiths forges and rust-coloured bogs that hold the key to Ireland’s past – when it comes to uncovering the culture, history and heritage on the Wild Atlantic Way, then Denis Quinn’s Wild Atlantic Cultural Tours is a great place to start.
His Wild Food Foraging Tour offers the best of both the culinary and scenic worlds. Scramble around the crystal clear rock pools and soft sands of County Mayo’s beaches collecting cockles, mussels and winkles, or spend an afternoon hunting for glistening seaweed varieties, including dillisk, carrageenan and nori. After foraging for a while, Denis will then show you how to feast out in the open, too. Then you simply tuck in, while gazing to sea at the seals basking in the sun along Ireland's stunning Wild Atlantic Way.
