Our story

Delicious Dublin Tours is the brainchild of French native Ketty Quigley who hails from the Loire Valley and fell in love with Dublin in 2004.

Ketty worked in the travel industry for many years and in the middle of the recession, bored with her office job she started a food blog called ‘French Foodie in Dublin’ to share her passion for food and Dublin. In the following years, her website changed her life as she built a loyal following of thousands of readers who trust her food recommendations. In 2013, Ketty swapped her office job for a life on the scary path of entrepreneurship and freelancing, doing what she loves on a daily basis. She has never looked back since.

In 2015 Ketty graduated from Ballymaloe Cookery School and founded Delicious Dublin Tours. She’s passionate about Irish food and has designed authentic food experiences to reflect Dublin’s exciting food revolution, as well as Ireland’s traditional culinary heritage.

Her mission is to make Irish people proud of their food culture and for tourists to go back home with unforgettable Irish food memories.

Ketty has an insatiable appetite for all things food related and is currently doing a Masters in Gastronomy and Food Studies at the DIT School of Culinary  Arts and Food Technology.

Ketty has received many awards and was named ‘Food Influencer of the Year’ in 2017. She regularly works with the Irish food board ‘Bord Bia’ during their various Irish food campaigns.
