Canoe & Cake

- Have you cake and eat it!

Enjoy the beauty of Strangford Lough from your own canoe and relax in the serenity of your surroundings before a food tour like no other, tucking into tasty treats in a magnificent traditional Irish thatched cottage.

You’ll meet at Tracey’s Farmhouse Kitchen where you can park which is situated 10 steps from the shoreline of beautiful Strangford Lough. From there and you’ll walk down to the water’s edge where your canoes will be waiting for you.

We will take you out in your canoes and you’ll connect with the beautiful Lough. You’ll paddle around the little Islands on the Lough and learn all about your surroundings as you paddle. This is a wellness experience.

You’ll have worked up an appetite and I will be at the shoreline upon your return. I will welcome you into my home and a roaring fire will be a welcome treat! If you do get wet, you can change into dry clothes in comfort.

Sitting in the warmth of the cottage kitchen you will be treated to a demonstration of soda bread making. The table will be laden with soda and wheaten bread with our homemade jams and handmade award-winning butter and of course cake!

Please note that we offer this experience for private group only. Get in touch for details on availability and rates
