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.

    Excellent introduction to cookery for a beginner. Alix explains and demonstrates each recipe in a clear, relaxed and engaging manner, in accordance with the printed notes provided. Interesting and humorous tips and short-cuts noted during the demonstration. Sessions were well organised in advance, with each person’s ‘station’ stocked with the food items, and required cutlery, etc. After Alix’s demonstration, each person proceeds to his/her station, to ‘do in like manner ‘. Alix closely monitored the beginner’s ‘hands on’ cookery practice. The proof of the pudding’ was evident in this beginner managing successfully to make tasty Brown Bread, Leek and Potato Soup, Fish Pie,Stirfry, Chicken Cacciatore, Deserts, and more. A compressive range of menu items covered in 4 sessions.

    Tús maith! Try it; you’ll surprise yourself!

    A genuine beginner!

    I had an amazing experience in August with Georgia learning how to make macaroons! I never tried by myself as they have the reputation to be tricky to make. But Georgia made it very easy! And gave us so much information, it was very detailed and precise! Everything was there to make us succeed and I feel confident to make them at home! We took it by step and step and I was so impressed that I finally managed my macaroons and they were absolutely perfect! My friends tasted them and they were so yummy..... I would highly recommend Cooks academy and will definitely come back to learn something else!

    I recently completed the one month course at Lynda Booth’s Dublin Cookery School. The course bridges the gap between the domestic and professional kitchen, providing practical tuition in a fun and friendly environment. The course involved daily demonstrations and lectures covering many technical skills and techniques including pastry, pasta, bread making, baking and various international cuisines. The food produced was truly amazing which then had to be eaten for lunch!

    I would definitely recommend the courses to anyone looking to expand their culinary repertoire. Lynda’s team of professional chefs provided expert tuition and guidance in a relaxed atmosphere. Many thanks Lynda for a truly unforgettable experience.

    First, I appreciated the flexibility in rescheduling class and good communication regarding booking and instructions. We got this from a voucher at 60€ for two people.

    In the "Vegan & Vegetarian Mezze 3" class, Abraham taught us how to make rice stuffed vine leaves, fatayer and a Palestinian sumac salad.
    He explained things clearly, with the help of his friendly wife. May I suggest some additional student coaching when come time to practice to make the experience even more personal and rewarding.

    We ate what we cooked, but the meal would feel more complete if we have few more mezze dishes to serve.

    Lastly, providing us containers to bring some of the leftover is definitely a nice bonus.

    We booked a private 3 hour food walk with Jim in Dublin through The Travelling Spoon. We had a wonderful time with Jim. He met us at the gates of Trinity College, asked us what we were into foodwise and then took us to some amazing and delicious places like a brandnew sourdough bakery, a cheese and wine shop, to a fish restaurant where we had delicious irish oysters and then in the end we had a whiskey tasting.
    Jim was very informative and nice and took his time to answer all of our questions. We can recommend this tour to anyone! Worth the price!

    Anne provided us with an excellent foodie tour of Dublin!! She had a big job - we were a family of 5 who had just gotten off of a 6 hour flight from the US!!! She kept all of us interested and well fed-- she is an excellent storyteller, knows her Irish history and it is obvious she truly loves what she does. She gave us such a wonderful overview of the city and helped us start our trip off right! We also appreciated all of her recommendations for pubs, restaurants, and things to do.

    Thank you Ann! We hope to meet you again someday! We felt like we made a friend!

    A little over a year ago, I set out to plan an amazing trip for my husbands 60th birthday. He has family from Co Donegal and knows SOME of the origins. I went through many searches and FB groups and finally got hooked up with these lovely folks - John Colclough specifically, listened to my email of what mattered to my husband and got us hooked up with Henry Doohan of Donegal Tour Guides. John booked absolutely lovely places with amazing views and many very cool stops. He left room in our days to allow Henry to take us to specific places he knew as a native. It was the most beautiful marriage of knowledgeable people. John was always there when I had a question. If you want an amazing trip to Ireland or the UK I'd contact him~!

    I am brand new to Foraging, but after last weekend's tour of the Kilkee and Kilbaha bays of County Clare in the West of Ireland, I am addicted!
    Besides being surrounded by beautiful scenery, I learned of the edible and healthy natural things that I would usually overlook on a walk along the beach. Our tour guide, Lucy, taught us of the health benefits of wild Irish seaweed and how it can soothe body aches when added to a warm water bath. We later went back to our holiday home and used the fresh Dillisk seaweed to make an amazing quiche, which we ate alongside our big bowl of freshly-picked "perry winkles"- small sea snails found by the hundreds in both bays! What a fantastic day. I certainly will be looking forward to more foraging tours organized by Orchards Near Me.
