Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This Walking tour is an absolute MUST if you are in Kinsale!
Spending time with Suzanne and sampling delicious local cuisine was incredible; all with the added bonus of learning a huge amount of local History and Culture.
We met and chatted with all of the owners of our stops, and enjoyed great conversations and PLENTY of laughs with Suzanne all along the way.
You will leave this tour not only with much knowledge and a full stomach, but with the feeling that you have known Suzanne forever!
We had a BLAST! Denise & Scott

We had such a great time on the tour with Suzanne! The food was excellent and learning about the small family-owned businesses was fun. Hearing about Kinsale's history as we walked through town was also fascinating. It was a wonderful way to experience such a beautiful place.

Absolutely fantastic tour. Suzanne is a true local. We learned so much about Kinsale and the ever-evolving food scene, the tour company has a relationship with the restaurants and it makes for a wonderfully genuine experience. As someone who has done food tours across the world, I could not recommend enough.

Suzanne was an outstanding host and guide providing fascinating insight to both the food and the town of Kinsale. Suzane met us on time and took us on a casual walk about town as she talked about its history, building’s and its people. The tour was a perfectly set up 4 course meal in 4 different venues. Each venue was unique, comfortable and quite tasty! It became evident that she is well known in town with everyone saying hello as we strolled about. We visited in January, very much off season, with many shops closed, though this posed no issues at all. Suzanne provided some great places to eat. Each bite was seasoned with history, and topped with a passion for her home and its people. Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and highly recommend including this adventure in your visit to Kinsale. As I said we visited in January and many places are closed however if you want to avoid crowds there are still plenty of places open to keep you occupied and the harbor town is a gem not be missed. Suzanne is a very knowledgeable and expert guide.

Suzanne was an entertaining and well informed guide on our culinary tour. She took us to places we possibly wouldn't have found on our own where real foods were prepared by people who really care about what they do. The included lunch was delicious and enlivened by Suzanne's very quirky food quiz!
Her grasp of local history was illuminating and fascinating and our final stop was a real surprise, a second hand book shop with a well stocked bar at the back. The charming owner, was he a bookseller or a landlord? Who knows, only in Ireland I suspect!
Suzanne's tips for dinner that night were very well received but having wrapped ourselves around several whiskies in Kitty O'Se's we decided to stay there and enjoy the music, food and drinks.

What a wonderful and delightful introduction to Kinsale food. Suzanne lead us to 4 stops each with their own unique food contribution. Not only did Suzanne introduce to establishments we would not have found, she provided historical perspective. Each stop was tasty and fun. And she provided great recommendations on others spots to try. She has an irreverent Irish sense of humor and was a delightful guide. Highly recommend

This is our third time to do Suzanne's food tour in Kinsale. This time we also included foraging. I was amazed at the depth of Suzanne's knowledge about the seaweeds and foods that can be found at the beach. The food at the restaurants and food stops was also fabulous! Our group loves doing the food tour, and look forward to it each time we return! Suzanne not only teaches a lot as she takes you on the food tour, she makes it lots of fun! We can't recommend this tour enough! Yummy food and lots of fun, learning and laughter!

Kinsale is a beautiful town with awesome food and truly friendly people. Going on a tour with Suzanne you get to experience all of this and more. First of all, she is fabulous with a beautiful sense of humor and knowledge of a place and subject that she obviously loves. We have gone on the standard food tour twice before and this time chose the foraging one. They are both exceptional. We had so much fun. It was interesting getting out to the beach and learning about food options in such a beautiful setting. Back in town, the food is very good and the hosts are so personable. Again, characteristic of folks here. For myself, I had plenty of gluten-free options and did not walk away feeling like I had missed something. Bring a good appetite and be prepared for a really good time. Definitely needs to be on your “To Do” list when in Kinsale! Enjoy!
