GWEN CHAMBERS – TOUR GUIDE
Our professional tour guide is local native Gwen Chambers who is a Blue Badge Tourist Guide and active member of the Northern Ireland Tour Guide Association (NITGA). Gwen specialise in coach tours, walking tours and private bespoke tours throughout Northern Ireland.
Let us whisk you off on a 3 hour walking tour of Kilkeel. Led by an enthusiastic and experienced local tour guide, who will serve up the vast history of our fishing and farming town through fascinating facts & insightful stories whilst you enjoy some of our local delicacies. The focus of this tour is to showcase the best of local produce we can, on foot.
Starting at Cunningham’s Butchers, we will step into Granny Cunningham’s original kitchen foot print and hear the stories from her Great Grandson and current owner, James Cunningham, who is now 4th generation and an award wining butcher while enjoying a freshly cooked breakfast showcasing award winning products and local products.
Next up, we will make our way to Kilkeel Wine Market where we will sample their fantastic range of local craft Beers and Gins, Take your pick!
After a heart warming taste of local brew, a short jaunt across the road will take us to MADE in Mourne where we will browse through local crafts from over 70 talented Makers, before a sampling session of Northern Ireland’s very own Bean to Bar Chocolate by the Neary Nog Family - Yes all MADE in Mourne!
Chocolate tasting complete, a short dander (stroll) along the esplanade Heading to the Mourne Seafoods Cookery school where we will enjoy the local fish freshly of the boat from Sea Source. On our journey there we may be lucky to bump into some local fishermen, maybe even catch them mending their nets before heading out for the next catch.
Finally, after enjoying our freshly cooked fish in the heart of the fishing community, we head back to enjoy a POKE from local favourite Grahams Ice Cream - but don’t be tempted to ask for the recipe… it’s a well kept family secret!
With all that in mind, we can’t wait for you to join us! Remember, there’s no need for breakfast or lunch! We’ll make sure you depart with a head full of local history and satisfied stomachs.
Just to note: The tour will last approximately 3.5 hours and the total distance walked will be 2 miles.
