‘Was on the tour on Saturday, it is a lovely way to spend the afternoon. Catherine is extremely knowledgeable and the places on the tour are amazing – being from Derry you forget the delights we have here on our doorstep. Thank you Catherine we had a ball, I highly recommend this to everyone.’

“What a unique surprise this tour was, I had no idea such amazing stuff was going on in Derry. Totally impressed. We sampled the most delicious food and drink in some of the coolest places I’ve experienced in Ireland. Totally worth every penny. That WagYu beef still makes my mouth water. I can’t wait to do another – soon!”

Catherine & Paddy exposed the best of Derry’s food & drink on a relaxed walking tour. Their passion for local produce, entrepreneurship and creativity was evident throughout the shortest 4 hours I’ve ever spent, and what I experienced made me proud to live and work here. From wagu beef to chocolate milk stout, each destination had its own unique flavours, and all of the owners/managers were entertaining, welcoming and happy to share their stories.

I left it feeling happy, pleasantly full and in love with Derry. Delighted to have a bit of walking thrown in to work some of it off again… totally recommended! Well done Catherine & Paddy!

We had a fantastic time, a group of 6 arrived not sure how much food we would sample it was beyond our expectations. We visited many different local eateries, from street food to high end end restaurants and a brewery it was a brilliantly knowledgeable food tour and Catherine was full of local insights. The walk itself was a breathtaking view of Derry from the Ebrighton Square in the waterside across the peace bridge into the city centre, best of luck to catherine and the local businesses it’s opened me up to so many different places to eat in Derry, I would highly recommend it to both locals and tourists

An absolutely delightful way to get to see Derry. Catherine is so well-informed and passionate about food, and we got to sample some really delicious local produce. I would highly recommend this tour, and am actually hoping to go again soon!

The slow food tour was an absolutely fantastic experience that I cannot recommend enough. The opportunity to broaden my food horizons will be something that I will not forget for the foreseeable future. My favourite aspect of the food tour was trying fresh local produce I had never tried before, such as, sourdough bread, blue cheese, mussels and monkfish. Overall, the food tours are a fantastic activity for all the family to enjoy and should not be missed.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We had not even heard of a couple of the eateries, but we will certainly return.

The Derry Food Tour was one of the highlights of my visit to Ireland and something I would recommend to anyone, from here or anywhere. All the spots showcased delicious options, the price value is excellent, and you get the added bonus of seeing a cross section of places where you might want to return. Catherine is an excellent host and was always helpful, on point, and personable. Highly recommended!

Fantastic day out. Catherine you’re an amazing host. Your knowledge and promotion of the local food industry and establishments second to none. Think those on our tour will definitely be supporting you in this. Food, wine and local craft beers amazing. Great to be able to meet people behind the businesses and food. All in all, great day’s craic.

The tour was a thoroughly enjoyable and DELICIOUS day out. I was blown away with what Derry had to offer. The enthusiasm with which Catherine led the tour was so lovely. She is obviously very proud of Derry and its people who produce such high quality locally sourced produce and rightly so. Every bit of food and drink we tasted was incredibly delicious. The speakers at each stop along the tour were so friendly, welcoming and informative. We learned so much. We will definitely without a doubt book this tour again! Thank you Catherine and friends.

My husband was initially a reluctant participant ( he was put under pressure to go) but thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. It was wonderful to be introduced to such a selection of good food and to listen to the enthusiasm of the people who prepared it with such passion! Well Done ! We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour

I loved meeting all the young entrepreneurs with such a passion for their organic foods and their city. I enjoyed tasting all the foods and learning so much more about Derry. I think it is a must for Derry people! Enjoyed meeting others and the craic!

It was a privilege to be on the first of ‘Made in Derry Food Tours’. Excellent Tour lead with Catherine with a friendly group. Catherine is a great Ambassador for this tour and our City – her knowledge of the Restaurants, Food & the history of our City helped this tour to be a huge success! Was the perfect way to spend our Anniversary. Would highly recommend. Good luck Catherine! xx

5 star tour!! Highly Recommended, great day out. Cathy was a great tour guide. Very knowledgable about the city’s history. Tasted loads of locally produced food and drink. We did not know that so much great produce is made locally. The weather made it. ☀️
Good luck Cathy.

Myself and my mum had a fantastic day out at the Made In Derry food tour. Catherine was full of great information and had a very positive attitude and bubbly personality to go along with it. The food and drinks were amazing, mostly local produce used which is amazing, there was something new and different in every food place also. I have to add that Catherine herself added a special touch to the day and she really did herself proud. I can’t recommend the tour enough! Thanks again

Had a lovely few hours in Derry today on a food walking tour … The theme was promoting local produce from various businesses throughout the city … The food and drinks were delicious and well worth a visit via the tour. I loved the enthusiasm of the proprietors to buy and build together from home grown produce. Thanks to Catherine our lovely tour guide and we wish you continued success in this venture ….
