Wild Food Forage Walk

Sunday, May 24, 2015 - 11:00


Take a walk on the wild side with experts from the Nádúr Collective & discover the natural seasonal food that can be foraged locally.

WHEN  :   Sunday 24th May, 11am

WHERE :  The walk starts & finishes at the Abbey Grounds

Admission NOW FULLY BOOKED -  €5 pp ( the admission cost will go towards the Parish's ongoing restoration of the Abbey ruins)

Places are limited & must be pre booked, please register by sending your name & contact number by email to from the 10th May

Children are welcome, but the walk is long & may be over rough terrain so this event may not be suitable for buggies or very young children. All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Go wild in Wicklow on this forage walk followed by an interactive session on how you can use the natural food collected. With tips on preserving wild food all year round as well as an important lesson on what not to eat, this event is fun & informative. The walk takes approx 1hr 30 mins & starts & finishes at the Abbey Grounds, followed  by a 'show & tell' with the wild produce collected.

Nádúr Collective was founded by likeminded chefs David Gallagher, Niall O'Sullivan & Paul Quinn with an aim to use traditional food production methods with as many wild, natural or found ingredients, where possible. Chef Ross Carlin is the latest member of Nadúr Collective.
