Private Market Tour and In-Home Vegan Cooking Demo with a Limerick Local

Meet your local host Ciara at the entrance to the local Milk market in Limerick city, a busy and lively canopy-covered market. As you walk around and discover local and regional produce sold by Ciara's favored vendors (many of whom she knows very well), you'll purchase a few ingredients for your vegan cooking demo. In Ciara's charming kitchen, you will learn to cook a global vegan meal from recipes she has created on her own. Your meal may include dishes such as a smoked carrot pate served on black cabbage with a dill dressing, an aubergine and wild mushroom pie topped with sweet potato and crunchy radishes, and a dessert of chocolate and coconut cake or chocolate mint mousse. Your cooking demonstration will last about two hours, during which you will watch Ciara make three different dishes from scratch, while chatting, eating and helping her prepare a few of the ingredients for the meal. Once the food is ready, you will sit down together to enjoy the meal.

This was my second time to visit King John's Castle - and I would go again! This is a really great day out. The whole set-up is so interesting and enjoyable. Even with Covid19 regulations in place, we still enjoyed our visit. Sadly, I hear this top attraction is in danger of shutting down because of the lack of foreign tourists this year so I would urge everyone to support this amazing project and keep it open.

Looks structurally impressive from the outside, but once inside it was not particularly impressive at all and felt like incomplete...missing walls/turrets and expansive furnished chambers. Somewhat of a disappointment, to be honest, after all that I had read online. It really did not give that wow sensation of being inside a large, heavily-walled medieval castle - not that much to see. The audio/visual presentations provided a good history of the castle. I walked round in 30 minutes only. A bit pricey for what you see.

Was really impressed with the Castle and Museum. The displays give you a very comprehensive overview of the period in Ireland from the Normans right through to the 1700’s. Well laid out and some nice interactive bits for all ages.
