Foraging in Cahernane
Cahernane House Hotel in Killarney will host a package called ‘Forage and Feast’ from the 12th to the 14th of June (priced from €375 per person sharing). This hands-on foraging experience will be hosted by Darach Ó Murchú, an environmental educator specialising in wild food foraging with particular expertise in the nutritional health and benefits of seaweed.
Darach will take the guests on a guided foraging tour of the grounds at Cahernane House Hotel. The guests will be lead through the mature gardens and grounds by Darach who will point out various edible herbs and plants growing wild on the estate. He will also provide the guests with the information they need to identify various plants and will discuss habitat, plant properties, and practicalities of foraging, top tips, and more.
Darach O Murchú is a wild-food foraging guide, specialising in both land plants and seaweeds. He has been delivering formal workshops since 2012. He lives what he teaches, using foraged food almost every day for his home-cooked meals, and he is constantly processing and preserving what he finds on the land around where he lives.
Darach co-presented a television series on foraging in Ireland entitled Dul i bhFiáin. He has also appeared on other programmes including Garraí Glas and more recently Faoi Bhláth on RTÉ 1.
