What you'll do
Our group will meet in the local pub The Confession Box. This pub happens to have the best Guinness !! Its also has a fascinating history going back nearly a 100 years !! We will have taste of of the Guinness and maybe the Smithwicks Irish Ale in The Confession Box. Once the group is ready we make our way along Marlborough Street past the stunning Tyrone House (1740), St Marys Pro Cathederal (1830). Overlooking Tyrone House is my apartment where our Irish food tasting will take place. I will begin by explaining the history of the Irish potato cake and how it relates to The Great Irish Famine of the 1840s. We will serve the potato cakes as a sharing platter of Irish food. This platter will include Irish cheeses, local gourmet Irish sausages, traditional black pudding, fried ham and fresh salad. Naturally we will have Guinness and some other local ales to enjoy with the food !! To finish the Experience we will take a short walk to The Potin Bar on Green St.
Hi all ! My name is Steve. I have over 15 years experience in the food business in Dublin City. I am now setting up another business .... The Irish Potato Cake Company !!! I am currently promoting this unique Irish food concept in street-food popup and promotional situations and now we wish to share it with Airbnb visitors to Dublin. As a business owner, manager and chef for over 15 years in Dublin I feel very comfortable hosting guests and sharing my knowledge of Irish food. Visitors to Dublin always ask me about Irish food but the offering is very limited especially in the casual food sector. I have actually traced potato cake-making all the way back to the Great Famine and and across the Atlantic to Boston and New York. A wonderful piece of Irish food history and we want to bring it back with a modern twist !
1 Irish food platter to share for each 2 guests. Includes Danny Mulligan's Irish Potato Cakes
Guinness and Smithwick's tasters

My apartment is a typical modern city centre apartment which overlooks the beautiful Tyrone House(1740) and park. Our final stop is Bar 1661 Ireland's first Potin bar.
