Our clients recently enjoyed a private tour of Dublin's Coastal Craft Beer and Seafood Trail, organised by Hidden Howth Experiences, and this is the wonderful video of their tour.

 Hazel Mountain Chocolate in County Clare is one of only 2% of companies worldwide that makes chocolate directly from the cocoa bean. Hazel Mountain chocolatiers are passionate about crafting their chocolate collection through a multi-stage process in the Connolly family’s traditional Irish farmhouse. Hazel Mountain Chocolate offers a range of visitor experiences in both their Burren and Galway City locations.

Ireland’s artisan cheeses are one of its best kept secrets and Dart Mountain Cheese in County Derry, Northern Ireland, makes a range of award-winning cheeses, including creamy Banagher Bold Cheese, which is dipped in local ale and best served with their own Derry ale drizzle from the homeplace of Seamus Heaney. Visitors are invited to enjoy one of their cheesemaking tours, which can also include a visit to a local brewery or an exploration of the magical Dart Mountain landscape.
