      Scones and bread baking outside Galway!
      A fantastic cooking demonstration/class by Kate Wright! We were welcomed in to Kate’s home for a scone cooking class. Just a great way to spend a day!

      Amazing cooking class. Don’t miss
      Wow! Kate is an amazing host —and the cooking class was 3 hours and a blast. We even gathered herbs from her garden to make the lamb stew. We did 3 variations of brown bread. And the pear scones were delicious and moist-dry and delicious with Irish butter. No clotted crème in Ireland. These are not Starbucks scones. Just mouthwatering. Kate is a hoot and one of our favorite things we did in Ireland!

      Delicious Stew with an Amazing Host
      Kate’s cooking experience was an amazing opportunity for our family. You must book with her if you are near the Galway area! The food, conversation, and laughter was memorable for our family and we appreciate the personal connection that Kate made with each of us. Her food is spectacular and Kate is truly a wonderful person. Thank you for these unforgettable moments on our journey!

      Try the stew it’s delicious!
      Kate and Valentina were wonderful and welcoming hosts as well as their pup CoCo. They helped us make the advertised soup and bread and allowed us to join in with the next group doing scones. They allowed us to sit in Kate’s beautiful garden and eat up the stew, bread, and scones we made. Great day! My grandmother was ecstatically happy. Thanks Kate and Valentina.

      Lovely time!
      What a lovely time with Kate and Valentina. We had a lovely time from beginning to end: it was great to pick herbs from the garden to toss into the stew. It would have been fun if the timing had worked out where we could try our own stew, but we were running a bit late so that was our fault. We got to make 3 kinds of bread, which well made up for it: spelt bread, brown bread, and blueberry scones. Highly recommend the experience!

      What a Fun Cooking Class!
      Kate is the best!! She really makes it fun to learn how to make Brown Bread and Stew. We also opted for making some scones as well. What a feast and now with recipes in hand, we can recapture all the things we made and remember the fun we had.

      Charming and authentic
      Charming…Kate, her home, Cocoa (her dog) and of course the food we made and devoured! Celebrating our 30yr anniversary and finding a uniquely Irish experiences like this make it all the more memorable. Thanks to Kate, Anna and Cocoa for a great meal, a lesson in cooking Irish Stew and making us feel at home.

      Better stew than what most restaurants make
      Kate was great at making me relax and not rush through the prep process. She recommended some kitchen gadgets to buy as well, to take guessing out of the cooking and make it simpler for novices. It was an overall pleasant experience, not to mention the stew was incredibly delicious, yum!!!

    What an amazing opportunity to experience my first bread making and scones with Kate. Loved it. Kate explained everything so simply and made it so Interesting with plenty of chat. Kate welcomed us into her beautiful homely environment where later we chatted over a cup of coffee and our scones. Highly recommend this.

    Kate was a great host and instructor for our cooking class. She taught us how to make simple, yet delicious scones and soda bread. Hosted in her beautiful home, we felt like it was an intimate cultural experience.

    Kate opened her home to us and made us feel welcome right away. We had varied levels of experience in baking, and she was able to teach all of us something. We baked scones and brown bread, and she made both feel easy to accomplish. After we baked, we sat down at her kitchen table with tea, and were able to taste our baked goods. They were delicious! She sent us home with great memories and recipes to make back at home! SO happy we were able to spend time with Kate. It was fun and I highly recommend it!

    My daughter and I very much enjoyed the experience of learning to make scones and bread with Kate at her home in April. Let me tell you, the scones we made there were the best that we found throughout our visit to Ireland. Another thing that was really fun was making friends with the other family that was there- a mom and her two grown children from Switzerland. It was just good fun and a wonderful memory. :)

    Kate, if you read this, we didn't get the recipes. I'm not sure how to contact you to get them but I would LOVE to have the scone recipe! Please reach out to me if you read this review!

    Booked this experience as a "different" thing to do when my daughter and I visited Ireland (castles are great, but you can only see so many!) and it was amazing! Kate was a welcoming and gracious host with endless energy, and invited us into her home as if we were old friends. She was incredibly knowledgeable and excited to teach us about making scones and bread and then even set up a little table for us in her beautiful back garden to have tea and try our treats. We got to take home the recipes and even some of Kate's homemade jam with the scones and bread which were better than any we had tried! Would highly recommend to anyone traveling near the Galway city area. Thanks so much to Kate and Valentina, and the pets, Coco and Millie! :)

    My friend and I booked a scone and soda bread class with Kate, and it was great! Her home is lovely with a nice garden and friendly mellow dog. We ended up being joined by three other travelers as well.
    Preparing and baking scones and bread was easy and fun, and Kate gave us good directions and tips on how to know we’re on the right track at each step. Once the scones were done we all got to sit and enjoy them with some coffee and chat.
    I would definitely do again, and recommend to friends looking for a nice laid back experience with a local pro that also gets you tasty souvenirs :)

    Baking with Katie was one of the highlights of our trip. She warmly welcomed us into her beautiful home and we made scones and brown bread. It was so nice to relax and chat with her as we baked, and she graciously shared some of her story as an experienced cook! Would highly recommend, much love to you Katie! xx

    My family had a wonderful time. Kate's home was lovely, she was a warm and colorful host, and the scones and bread we baked were out of this world. Cannot recommend this un-touristy experience highly enough!

    We were two couples celebrating a birthday. Kate was magnificent and we had loads of fun baking the most delicious scones we ever tasted! Afterwards we sat for a lovely breakfast enjoying Kate's company, and then a stroll through her beautiful garden. Highly recommend!

    Kate gave my husband and I a wonderful memory we will be talking about for years. Her scones and bread recipe that we had a chance to create were so tasty! Thank you for the hospitality and would absolutely recommend this for any person looking to gain some Irish experience in the kitchen. She makes a great cup of tea too.
