Cycling, baking and whiskey adventure
This is a full day of experiencing, discovering and tasting the best of ‘local’ Ireland.
Start off at Brigown Bed & Breakfast for a coffee and homemade scone in Marjorie’s kitchen and meet your local guide Rachel. Here you will get measured up for your bike and start your guided cycle through the famous Belleek woods and along the Monasteries of the Moy. We will explore Rosserk Abbey, a Franciscan friary build by the Joyce family in 1460 and is idyllically located on the banks of the Moy estuary. On our return, we’ll stop off at Belleek castle for a guided tour of the castle and dungeons where we will learn about the deepened history and creative passion that lies behind it.
It’s then a short cycle back along the river to Brigown Bed & Breakfast where you will join Marjorie (author of 4 cookery books) in her kitchen to prepare Irish Guinness soda bread and traditional Irish potato cakes. This is a fun and interactive 90 minutes of entertainment and leave you impressing your friends in the kitchen when you get home. After, you can savour all your treats together with a tea or coffee and some of Marjorie’s homemade jams.
Following this, you will pop into the dining room where Rachel (Marjorie’s daughter) will host a Whiskey Appreciation Session. Here you will learn about the Irish whiskey industry and leave knowing what style of whiskey you like and why as you taste 4 specially selected whiskey.
