Improve Your Shoreline Literacy
Jul 2020
Coming from a landlocked state, I find the ocean and shoreline beautiful and fascinating but foreign. John Fitzgerald provided an informative and entertaining introduction to seaweed, ocean, and shoreline literacy, and he allowed me to better understand the landscape. His enthusiasm for sharing his knowledge of different seaweeds, shoreline plants, and invertebrate is contagious and after his tour I have enjoyed walks along the beach with a greater understanding of what I am seeing.

Great afternoon

Highly recommend this. We learned loads, and it was very entertaining. We covered two venues and got a bag of dried seaweed to take away and we tasted many different types of seaweed.

Seaweed foraging walk
Sep 2020
A seaweed foraging walk today that was both informative and fascinating. John showed us so many different types of seaweed at White Strand and Caherdaniel Harbour. Due to Covid-19 restrictions we didn't have the lunch that his wife provides but instead got some sea spaghetti, a seaweed bath bag and lovely postcards to take home. John also emailed the detailed information he provided on the walk. All in all a great day out!

A must do!
Sep 2020
I couldn't recommend this highly enough! John was full of knowledge in a wide range of topics, from seaweed to history, science, nutrition and culinary tips, all of which were delivered in an enthusiastic entertaining manner.

The knowledge shared in terms of foraging was very accessible, so much so that seaweed has been incorporated into my meals daily since attending the course last week.

A wonderfully entertaining, educational, eye opening 2.5 hours

Entertaining and informative
Sep 2020
I have done a number of seaweed foraging workshops before in other counties but this one was probably the most entertaining! John is a character - he told some great stories and and has an opinion on most things! He is knowledgeable and was very helpful answering any questions and making using seaweed an attractive thing to do. Our 2.5 hour workshop took in two sites with lots of samples found and tasted. If you have any interest in the subject, John is your man!

Fantastic and surprising
Aug 2020 • Friends
This tour was the highlight of my trip to Kerry. Having found it online, I was interested but it took some convincing to talk my mate around to joining too. Within 5 minutes of the tour starting we realised it was a fantastic find. The tour is amazing, John is incredibly knowledgeable but he explains things in a really interesting way and also provides some local history and information around the biodiversity of the area. I cannot recommend this enough, it’s an incredible day out and you’ll be surprised at how good some of the seaweed ans wild plants taste, and what can be done with them. This is without a doubt the. Edy money I’ve spend on my trip, incredible value for money - do it!

I have had a house in Caherdaniel for just over 20 years but following Johns hugely informative tour this morning I realised how little I knew of what is available along this beautiful coastline. John has a vast knowledge which he shared in such a relaxed manner. I love to cook and can see many hours spending time scavenging the shore in search of a delicious meal. Fantastic value.

Following my last review I have foraged the shores/rocks of our beautiful local beaches for seaweed spaghetti and other wonderful offerings as shown to us by John. Last night I cooked the spaghetti in a mixed seafood dish with herbed tomato sauce and it was utterly delicious especially knowing how much natural goodness was being absorbed from the sea. My dinner guests were amazed at the taste and texture provided by the seaweed and are intent on booking a walk with John Fitzgerald. This is a tour not to be missed if you love the sea and all the health benefits it provides (10/10).

Had an excellent day with John. Such a knowledgeable and witty guide - he taught us so much about the many wonders of seaweed with some general and local history thrown in too! Would highly recommend!
