Please note -  Some of the Cookery classes - (eg the Baking & Chocolate Making classes) may end too late (after 15.00) to fit in the whiskey tasting, thus a Good Food Ireland Gift card is included to cover this which can instead be used on your trip at any of our collection. We suggest using it then for a picnic lunch from Good food Ireland Members Jack's Bakery & Deli which is en route to your boat trip meeting point.
