Is alcohol served on the tour(s)?

Yes, there are alcoholic drink samples served on two of our three tours; the Walking Food Tour (flight of local craft beer) and the Sunset Slea Head-Saints and Spirts tour (craft beer & whiskey-like spirit). Neither amounts to more than a single serving of alcohol. Additionally, several of our tasting locations provide ice water for tour guests.

Can I shop during the tour or experience?

Absolutely! We encourage people to purchase items to support our partners. Having said that, the experiences are organized to arrive at each tasting location at a specified time, therefore it is important to stay on schedule so the food is freshly prepared for the guests. There is usually plenty of time to purchase items at each stop, but your guide will give you warning as to when we are leaving for the next stop and ask you to get your shopping done before the group leaves.

Do your tours have anything to offer people who live in the Dingle area?

Yes! Many of the attendees live right here in the Dingle town area. It is a great way to learn some interesting stories of the towns' bygone era as well as check out a few food establishments of special interest. It is also a great way to escape the town and be driven out for a drink at sunset.

Are cameras allowed on the tour(s)?

Yes! We are totally okay with guests who take photos or videos. If you get any great shots we’d love for you to share them with us.

Since there is a lot of standing and walking, please consider this when deciding whether the tour is appropriate for your child.
