Your Guide

Sheena Dignam; a Franco-Irish food and wine lover who is originally from Wicklow but grew up in the Loire valley, where she studied Culinary Arts & Wine. Having spent over 15 years in the food industry, her passion has led her to launch Galway Food Tours.

"For me, what makes Galway so special is the local producers, and the best thing about the market is the diversity from cheese to sushi, oysters to curry stews, doughnuts to falafel's. But especially it's such a great atmosphere! The traders are such great craic and are hugely talented."

On her tours, Sheena shares her love for good food as well as insider tips.
