Follow the Raglan Road Contest Winners to Ireland

Written By Scott Joseph On May 18, 2015

Raglan DundonThe group will spend the first evening in Dublin, touring the Guinness Storehouse and sampling the Black Stuff, then have dinner at L’Ecrivain, a Michelin-starred restaurant owned by award-winning chef Derry Clarke.

On Saturday they’ll head to Dundon’s Dunbrody Country House then tour a water-powered grain mill, a fruit farm and an Irish beef processor.

The next day will begin in Dundon’s cooking school where he’ll show the American students how things are done the Irish way. In the afternoon, they’ll tour Hook Head Lighthouse, which is the source of a phrase you probably use quite often (I’ll tell you later), Loftus Hall, known as the most haunted house on the peninsula (the others are just sort of haunted), then dinner at a local pub.

On Monday morning — Memorial Day in the States — the group will go out on a commercial fishing boat to learn about local seafood, and then they’ll cook some of the fish they catch for lunch. Following a traditional Irish afternoon tea, everyone will gather in the kitchen to make a family style supper.

Then Tuesday it’s back to Orlando International Airport.

Doesn’t that sound like fun? I think it does. In fact, I like the itinerary so much that I’ve decided to go along. Beginning Thursday evening I’ll be chronicling the events as they unfold, so be sure to check here and at the Scott Joseph’s Orlando Restaurant Guide Facebook page throughout the weekend.

And that’s when I’ll tell you the phrase we get from Hook Head Lighthouse.
