Largadoon, Manorhamilton, Leitrim,

Feast your eyes on magnificent scenery, feast your ears on wonderful poetry and feast your taste buds on succulent food in beautiful Glencar, Co. Leitrim

As part of the ‘Taste the Island’ festival of food you are invited on a gentle meander in the hills above Glencar in Lovely Leitrim with Leitrim Landscapes Guided Walks and Glencar TeaShed. The pristine landscape which inspired Yeats’ poetry will inspire us to share some verse with you that celebrate the importance of food in our lives and history.

In turn, you are invited to share your food verses. When you’ve worked up an appetite we will descend to the acclaimed Glencar TeaShed for a wonderful lunch of local produce.

Duration: 2.5 - 3 hour guided walk and lunch for €27.50

Lunch includes chicken salad or vegetarian quiche with salad, cup of soup and filtered coffee or tea

Walk will be slow paced with a climb at the start and on paths for most of the route with some cross country.

Walking boots and waterproof jacket required.

This event is part of Taste the Island
