Dine in an Irish Farmhouse

Submitted by on December 30, 2011 – 4:14 pmNo Comment


Not all tours are just bus rides. Trafalgar, for example, includes “Be My Guest” experiences on many of its European adventures. On these sidetrips, guests share home-cooked meals while meeting local artisans in the destinations they visit.

For example, on Trafalgar’s trips heading to Killarney, Ireland, passengers have the chance to visit Muckross Traditional Farms (map), working farms that portray a rural Irish community of the 1930s. The farmers and their wives invite guests to relive the past, back to a time before the advent of electricity when all work was carried out using traditional methods. They’ll also get a tour of the farmyard and the vintage machinery collection and be treated to a butter-making demonstration, complete with buttermilk tasting.

Following the farm tour, Trafalgar travelers are welcomed into the Quilles Farmhouse for a “Be My Guest” meal of authentic Irish fare: Kerry Lamb Stew with boiled potatoes and fresh farm bread. The meal is topped off with Irish coffee and homemade bread and butter pudding, as a musician plays traditional Irish songs and a storyteller shares Celtic folklore.

Travelers interested in visiting Muckross Traditional Farms for the “Be My Guest” dinner can book one of four Trafalgar guided vacations: eight-day Irish Highlights (from $1725), 11-day Best of Ireland (from $2299), 12-day Irish Experience (from $2525) and 16-day Best of Ireland & Scotland (from $3299).
