We contacted Brian to see if he could do a family foraging walk for my 11 year old son’s birthday who is interested in foraging. Following a lovely chat about what he could do and recommending various books we decided to go ahead and book. Such attention to detail, involving emails and calls to understand what my son was interested in and to prepare us for the day. Brian was very engaging from the very start and built an immediate rapport. Nothing was too much trouble and he really bought foraging to life for us all. The foraged snacks were wonderful.
“Thank you to Brian and Lorraine for creating this excellent “Butter and Booley Tour”. The day was so well planned with a good mix of information, interesting stories and time to be alone with your own thoughts.
Would highly recommend this tour when visiting the area, it will be a day well spent!”
Had a brilliant day with mountain ways Ireland. Brian and Lorraine were just amazing hosts. I highly recommend this tour, not only do you get a detailed history of this beautiful mountain and area but you get a taste of the most mouth watering jams, honey and kim chi, all organic, and made by Brian. Then there is the butter, made by you, on the tour, with help from Brian is lovely on the fruit bread included in your lunch. I will be first in line to buy the dandelion jelly should they ever decide to sell it! Roll on the next tour! ???? Kathleen, St. Mary’s

Brian guided my husband and I to the top of mystical Slieve Gullion . He is a highly skilled tour guide, knowledgeable about the land, history and its people. Brian is a great storyteller – he took it at our pace. We had a fantastic experience and look forward to finding an opportunity to take part in one of his tours in the future.
Relaxing and Informative
The “ Booley and Butter Tour” has it all, beautiful surroundings, informative and friendly hosts and mouthwatering foraged treats to accompany the butter you make along the way! A step back in time to one when everything happened at a slower pace certainly made for a relaxing and enjoyable day, thank you Brian and Lorraine, I can’t wait to go back!
Fantastic experience I learnt so much from Brian he was excellent and full of knowledge and we had amazing homemade nibbles from the plants that we foraged while being in a beautiful surroundings Brian and Lorraine couldn’t have been more accommodating the whole experience was great would definitely recommend this foraging day to anyone who is interested in learning more about the local flora and fauna of Ireland these guys deserve full stars for all the effort they put into the day too make it an unforgettable experience for us thanks to you both 🍀🌿☘️
