Traditional Irish Breadmaking

Traditional Irish Bread making in my home – an 18th century thatched Cottage in an area of outstanding natural beauty – Strangford Lough.

Would you like to learn how to make local Irish breads in a traditional Irish home on the shores of Strangford Lough – 30 minutes outside Belfast?

If so, join me in my thatched cottage a few steps away from Strangford Lough in an area of outstanding natural beauty in County Down.

You will arrive to a warm welcome and a big farmhouse table full of homemade breads – Soda, Wheaten and potato breads. There will also be my own homemade speciality –  fruit soda bannock and an impressive selection of other local treats for you to enjoy. Bring a good appetite!

Then – you will make your own traditional Irish breads! You may choose to stay at the table and graze, or you might prefer to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in!

All breads are made on the Griddle and so only take a short time before they’re ready to eat.

Once you have made your Irish breads, we will all sit down at the table once again and feast on these delicious breads – soda, potato and wheaten {brown bread}. They taste delicious with our award winning handmade butters – dulse and original and with my selection of  local  jams. It’s a true feast of local homemade produce.  I hope that you’re prepared to eat! This will be washed down with endless cups of our local Belfast Brew tea or coffee.

You will take home a bag of your own homemade breads and a copy of all of the recipes of everything that you will taste and enjoy.

If you’re looking for something off the beaten track and you’re keen to meet the locals and dine in a traditional home, then this is the perfect experience for you!

I look forward to welcoming you to my home, and to enjoying this very unique and immersive experience.

This is a very suitable experience for kids from 8 years up.
