Foody Tours provides independent gourmet tasting tours for small groups of foodies in the West of Ireland.
 
On our ‘Best Of...’ tours, our guests taste – and learn about – the very best local artisan produce and unique dishes, craft beers, wine and spirits, while visiting a minimum of five independently selected tried-and-tested venues all in the course of one evening. They meet some of the producers, chefs and restaurant/ venue owners behind the food, as they sample their showcase dishes at some of the best food destinations on the Wild Atlantic Way. 

Who it's for...

If you appreciate good food and have a sense of adventure, Foody Tours is for you. Our guests tend to be a great mix of locals and visitors, united by their passion for quality, fun and finding fabulous food! Our tours to date have included top restaurants, hotels, pubs and food destinations in Westport, Castlebar and soon, Ballina, in County Mayo.

When we do it...

For details of our scheduled tours, check out our Events page. Bespoke private tours are also available – suitable for friends, family, visitors and corporate events. As we very much value quality over quantity, we mainly cater for small groups of up to 14 people. Please get in touch if you have any questions; we’d be delighted to help. You can contact Siobhan Foody on +353 87 1203297 or email siobhanfoody@gmail.com

"The Westport Food Tour was one of the highlights of my summer, spending a weekend with a great friend in a gorgeous town that has so many great restaurants you wouldn't believe. The pain of making an unexperienced decision of where to go for food is removed by Siobhan's excellent choices and her knowledge of the local producers and chefs. This is a wonderful place to get the best start on a discovery of culinary delights and it proved to also be a great chance to meet new people with shared interests and have just great craic. Thanks Siobhan and the team for a brilliant getaway.” 

– Helen McNulty

“I went on a food tour of Westport with Siobhan in September. I hadn't been on one of these tours before so didn't really know what to expect. I thoroughly enjoyed the day! it was fantastic from start to finish. We visited so many restaurants and ate so much beautiful food and those who were drinking sampled wine in every restaurant! I honestly don't know how I ate so much but it was hard to say no when the food was so tempting. The last stop was in Hotel Westport where we had a drinks stop. There was a local brew and cocktails served up. As I'm expecting and there were a few drivers we got non alcoholic cocktails which tasted divine! I would thoroughly recommend a tour with Siobhan as we had such a laugh and it was fantastic value for money. Can't wait to book up again. Next time we said we would stay in Hotel Westport after to finish off a great day with a night on the tiles!

“Last summer my sister in law suggested we try out a food tour in Westport and as I had never experienced one before I said I would give it a try. Little did I know at the time how much I would enjoy it and that I would be trying to plan the next one before I had even finished the first one... It was such an enjoyable experience well organised, great value for money, a great way to meet new people and educating look at behind the scenes of how our food is prepared and where it comes from. I have recommended this tour to all my family and friends and they are al looking forward to their first food experience in Westport.”

 

“Siobhan, thanks for such a wonderful food experience! I had a very enjoyable evening on your tour, opening my eyes to all the food delights Westport has to offer. Fantastic food, new tastes, flavours and unbelievable good value, you have created something very special and unique with this tour, a must for any foodie! Looking forward to joining you again on my next visit!”
