WLCVacations Unveils the Natural Flavors of Ireland on New Artisan Food Program
"Artisan Food Trails" Itinerary Explores Artisan Markets, Shops Aboard Hotel Barge Shannon Princess
“This extraordinary cruise will offer guests to the chance to immerse themselves in the rich flavors of the country, all while taking in the breathtaking scenery along the tranquil waters of the River Shannon,” says Ana Valente, president of WLCVacations.
The 10-passenger Shannon Princess will journey roundtrip from Dublin through rolling green hills and exotic wildlife, passing by crumbling ivy-covered ruins, ancient Celtic monasteries and sleepy market villages. The program will feature shore visits to local cheese makers, smoke houses, artisan bakers, farmers markets and more. Among the new experiences scheduled include
- Sampling fresh oysters from Galway Bay’s oyster beds
- Strolling through Portumna Castle’s Kitchen Garden where Shannon Princess’s Chef stocks up her galley
- Indulging in award-winning Wilde Team’s chocolate in Tuamgraney
- Touring a family-run organic goat farm in Athlone Town specializing in cow’s milk cheeses
Onboard, passengers will be treated to a unique taste of Ireland with Master Chef Olivia’s signature meals. All carefully-crafted meals are prepared with natural ingredients chosen from local producers and country markets along the Shannon. In addition, guests will have the opportunity to concoct the dishes themselves by participating in the chef’s private seasonal foraging and cooking lessons. Prices for the cruise start at $3,888 per person.
