What you'll do
We will meet at my home set in the heart of the countryside and learn how to make traditional Irish beef and guinness stew. This is a lovely old recipe for a heart warming winter stew. We will prepare it all together, taking care to only use locally and ethically sourced ingredients, organic beef, locally grown veg etc. After prep is complete we can put it on the oven to slow cook, the flavours all marinate together this way. Then we will head out and take a good walk around the ocean here, the wild atlantic in the shadow of the cliffs of moher, work up a good appetite. If weather permits we will take a walk up onto the cliffs themselves. If not the walk around the ocean here is bracing, sea caves, gulls crashing into the waves, hardly a soul around. It's good for the soul no matter what the weather. Afterwards, we will return home to our supper, bowls of piping hot Guiness & Beef Stew. You will receive a hard copy of the recipe so you can re-create it at home no matter where in the world you live. It's the perfect day out combining cooking with hiking and working up a good appetite to enjoy our supper together afterwards. This experience will really appeal to you if you love hiking, nature, photography and good hearty food using the best ingredients possible. It's a way of life.

Hi, my name is Ro. I live in the most beautiful and wild part of Ireland, beside the iconic and fierce Cliffs of Moher. I have been working at the cliffs for more than 13 years now in total. Ten years in the visitor centre and three years running my hiking business. From all the years I've spent working there I've met many the tourist that's often travelled from around the world to see the cliffs and be sorely disappointed. This is mostly due to the often dramatic weather conditions there which scuttles all plans. They leave empty handed. I set up this alternate experience so that even in poor weather conditions you at least get to see the infamous Cliffs Of Moher , learn to cook something new and enjoy a great meal together in an intimate setting after our hike in the great outdoors.
Beef & Guinness Stew. Water or Milk to drink.
If the weather is so poor that you'd rather not brave the great outdoors, I can set a lovely turf fire for you to relax by in…
Complimentary Binoculars & Wetpants for our walk will not only keep us dry but give us every opportunity for bird watching…

Where you'll be
Our cooking workshop will happen in my lovely home in the countryside. It's a big spacious house inducing relaxation and comfort. Once the stew is on the oven we will head out. Our walk will either take us around the wild atlantic ocean in a remote rural setting or else upto the cliff edge, weather permitting. The experience ends back at my house again for our lovely supper together.
