Catch and Sea™
*ALTERNATIVE DATES MAY BE AVAILABLE - PLEASE CONTACT
The award-winning Catch and Sea™ food experience created by Wendy Gallagher is coming to Portstewart in 2020 in collaboration with Boy Matthew Sea Fishing Trips & Warkes Deli.
This breakfast fishing tour offers visitors a totally different perspective of our stunning coastline voted #1 region in 2018 by Lonely Planet. This experience brings to life stories about our local landmarks, legends, wildlife, traditions, food heritage and people.
We will see first hand the sea passage our very first settlers to the island of Ireland took tens of thousands of years ago & learn about our unique food heritage from the River Bann.
Seeing coastal features & sea life up close; watching the sunrise - resplendent over the Atlantic ocean; a fishing rod in your hands - perhaps for the first time; catching that fish and learning how to fillet it; lifting lobster pots; feeding the friendly, hungry, seabirds with fishy leftovers; taking pride in presenting your catch to the Chef. Finally seeing it cooked for breakfast and sampling in conjunction with award-winning local produce you may have never tasted, or been aware of, before that day.
The breakfast experience illustrates the true meaning of ‘our place on a plate’, showcasing what else Northern Ireland produce can offer.
Guests say it’s hard to experience a more inspiring way to start their day, allowing them the remainder of the day to sample our other tourist attractions; be it bird watching on Rathlin, Games of Thrones locations, visiting Northern Ireland's only World Heritage Site, enjoying a dram in the world's oldest, licensed, whiskey distillery, surfing Blue Flag beaches, drinking locally brewed Lacada beers or even golfing on nearby, world famous, links courses at Portstewart, Castlerock or Royal Portrush.
