(1:00) Gerry Meade and the Salmon of Knowledge Tour
Gerry first joined me on the podcast back in March 2017 when he was just launching his Salmon of Knowledge tour (episode 22, Gerry Meade and the Salmon of Knowledge).
Since then Gerry has made a few updates to his tour as well as a new food offering in the Boyne Valley.
(2:06) The Boyne Valley in Ireland's Ancient East
Ireland's regional re-branding has been helpful for visitors to find attractions beyond county borders.
The Wild Atlantic Way – Ireland's Ancient East – Ireland's Hidden Heartlands – The Boyne Valley
(5:08) The Salmon of Knowledge
The Salmon of Knowledge tour guides you through one of Ireland's most popular legends.
A mysterious fish. Magic hazelnuts. Sacred river. Cunning druid. And a young warrior.
Gerry has updated his tour to a more complete experience.
It now includes a full meal- starter, entree, and dessert- and is fully hosted at a hotel making this an all-weather experience and easier for anyone with mobility issues.
(15:00) The Irish Cookery School
Gerry's newest offering is the Irish Cookery School, a master class demonstration show that introduces attendees to 4 iconic Irish offerings: Irish stew, bacon & cabbage, Irish Coffee and brown bread.
The show takes place in Martry Mill, a historic water mill which still grinds wholemeal flour.
