Northern Ireland's Year of Food and Drink
With a wealth of local producers to draw from, 2016 has been declared Northern Ireland’s Year of Food and Drink. And Caroline is excited about shining a light on her favourite city.
“Belfast is such an amazing place,” she enthuses. “We’re going through what I’m calling a revolution of food, drink and tourism in general. It’s such a brilliant place to come for a weekend. It’s perfect.”
Surprisingly for Caroline, the majority of guests on the Belfast Food Tour have been locals who want to experience new places in their home city.
She reveals: “So far, I haven’t really done any marketing outside of Northern Ireland. Word of mouth is everything. My guests have been amazing and they have told their family, friends and colleagues about the tour. That’s how it has built up. And now, thanks to sites like Trip Advisor, I have been getting more tourists from further afield and they know to book ahead.”
