This was an absolute lovely tour and I consider it a "must do" for anyone visiting Cork. Fran Bonner is an excellent tour guide - extremely knowledgeable, highly entertaining, up on the local lore and tapped into the the best places to visit in Cork from a culinary and historical perspective. She made our family feel so welcome - as if we were part of her family. The tastings were outstanding, diverse and delicious. I highly recommend this tour - we would take it again and would love to book her Kinsale tour in the future.

All my family love tasting new foods so signed up for this food tour on a trip to Cork in May. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and it was well worth the money we spent.

We tried a wide array of delicious food and drink - including fresh Chowder, oysters, cheese and even Irish coffee - from a selection of vendors in the market and some local restaurants.

Alongside the great food, Francis was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Cork, and the importance of certain foods to the Irish community.

We learned so much and loved tasting the best foods Cork had to offer!

Frances gave a great background of the city of cork and the food markets. Everything was very organized and on time. The samplings were so yummy! We were so happy we booked this tour. We went back to the English market to get things for our picnic lunch for the next day. Thank you so much😁

Frances our excellent guide started us off with a pre lunch Irish Coffee before we enjoyed the delights of the English Market which is a great place to visit and enjoy the range of stalls and quality food. The characterful Irish Market was the final stop on a highly engaging tour. Our group was small - 5 - a couple, two friends and a solo and with Frances talking interestingly both of food and the city, we all quickly got on well. Tour is rightly recommended as is the City of Cork itself.

Originally from Cork but living abroad so joined Valerie on her tour, truly a memorable experience, a walk down memory lane, I was blown away by the English Market. Overall a terrific way to get to know the wonderful city of Cork, its eateries and the lovely Château Bar on Patrick St. Valerie makes everyone feel so welcome. Thrilled I went along.

My friend and I had a great time on this tour! It's perfect for a number of reasons....there was just the right amount of history, food samples, drinks and shopping! As well as a great lunch! Our tour guide Valerie was excellent! She was extremely helpful and even gave us information on other places to visit while in Cork. I would recommend this tour to anyone - foodies or not.

The tour was excellent. Went very smooth, we felt welcomed at every place we visited. Had a pleasure to taste best local snacks Cork has to offer. I live in Kinsale for more than 10 years and did not suspect that there yet were some local gems to discover so close from where I live. Learnt a lot of interesting history facts about the food industry in Cork area. Well done Frances!

Fran is the best! Her tour of Cork not only had delicious samples with a great variety but her knowledge of the area brought Cork to life for us. I highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in food and history.
