Loughrea Medieval Food Tours

A Taste of Loughrea

A Taste of Loughrea

Over the Loughrea Medieval Festival weekend, people got a taste of Loughrea as they participated in one of three tours led by Sheena Dignam of Galway Food Tours. The tours, one on Friday 25th August, and two on Saturday 26th August took attendees on a food exploration walking tour around our medieval town. During this tour, they enjoyed tastings from Loughrea’s culinary favourites and hidden gems too. The tours were funded by Loughrea Chamber of Commerce.
