Regularly overhead beginning most conversations with “did you see this” or “have you tried that”, Sue is constantly on the look out for the latest new products and best foodie destinations Donegal has to offer.
An appetite for exploring new culinary experiences has brought Sue all over the world, from launching a new restaurant in NSW Australia to spending time in the wine producing regions of Hunter Valley and Margaret River. When she moved back to Donegal in 2014, she completed the Wine & Spirit Education Trust Award Level 2 in Wine & Spirits and started working in the county’s most reputable wine shop.
In 2016 Sue moved into marketing and events at one of the largest entertainment venues in the North West. Here she crafted out a unique club, namely ‘The Craft & Cork Club’ at House Wine Bar & Taproom which she used as a platform to educate local customers on the variety of wines and spirits available to them in the area.
Spending time there after working freelance in marketing and events, she noticed the struggle some of her clients had, in getting people to travel to their rural locations and being found by tourists and so Donegal Food Tours was born.
Donegal Food Tours aim is to connect the dots, showcase the best produce in the North West and be part of the movement to revive old Irish culinary traditions and the food of our ancestors.
