Famous for its traditional food and drink, it’s no surprise that Dublin is such a popular destination for food technology school trips!

Of course, you can’t visit Dublin without taking a tour of one of the city’s most famous tourist attractions – the Guinness Storehouse. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn the secrets of a working chocolate factory and learn how to cook a three-course meal at Dublin Cookery School.

And a food technology school trip to Dublin wouldn’t be complete without experiencing an evening of food and folklore at Dublin’s oldest pub! You’ll be served a traditional Irish meal while listening to traditional Irish music and hearing some enchanting folk tales.
