    The hands on experience of mixing the baking products. Eating our own scons was great while our soda bread baked.
    Kate's Place rocks but bakes a soft scone!

    My wife and I had a great time at Kate's Place. Kate and Sarah were great hosts. It was a wonderful and intimate atmosphere in Kate's kitchen.
    Loads of fun and laughs!!!

    Had a really good time with Kate. She was not only a great teacher but made the adventure a lot of fun. Made some great scones and bread and got to meet some really great people. This is an awesome activity to take part in when you are in Ireland. I heartily recommend it.
    Great afternoon

    What an amazing way to get a bit of real Ireland. It was fun to do a non-touristy thing. My angsty teen even said it was a highlight. He never wants to get messy but Kate helped him jump right in. Even though he is a picky eater he ate some of the scones. (And loved them) My husband and I also enjoyed ourselves. So much fun.
    Great day with Kate

    My wife and I had a great time making scones and brown bread. My wife loves scones and has been making them for awhile but they just weren't right according to her. Kate taught her a few secrets and the scones we made were great. Wife can't wait to get back home and try them herself.
    Great cultural experience.

    My family of 4 spent some time with Kate on this experience and we had a wonderful time. It was a great way to get out of the city and enjoy the quaintness and peacefulness at Kate’s!! Her home was beautiful, this is a great way to experience Irish culture. We would love to come back someday! Thank you Kate!! ❤️
    Personable Lesson!

    Kate was a lovely host and teacher! She made the experience personable with good humor. At the end of our cooking, we enjoyed our work with coffee/tea and good conversation. Thank you for your hospitality, Kate!
    Big thumbs up!

    Absolutely amazing experience. Kate is a wonderful person, very sweet and welcoming. Highly recommend for an unique experience. Get chance to bake some traditional recipes in a beautiful home with a super sweet lady!
    Don’t miss this opportunity to have a wonderful experience and fantastic time.

    Kate, our host and chef, welcomed us enthusiastically into her kitchen to the joy of making traditional Irish scones and breads. While I have enjoyed plenty of both neither my husband nor I have ever made them. The scones were the best we have ever eaten and their texture and lighteness was perfect. We are definitely take our new skill and her recipes home to share. Kate’s warm hospitality and passion for sharing the cooking and baking experience is matched by her natural Irish storytelling as well as her love for gardening. We saved enough time to meander through her extensive garden bursting with spring growth and colorful blooming. I would strongly recommend taking cooking with Kate. You will not only make great scones and traditional Irish breads you will have a fabulous time in her kitchen having fun.
    Kate was amazing! She was...

    Kate was amazing! She was gracious and kind. She can make scones and breads with her eyes closed. Definitely the right person to learn this art from here in Ireland! What a lovely afternoon!
    A wonderful afternoon
