Depart the pier and travel south towards Strangford Lough, where the patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick, is said to have sailed into. Strangford Lough is a large inlet in County Down, Northern Ireland. It is an area of outstanding beauty and also an area of special scientific interest with over 2000 marine species spread across 150km².

Today you will visit the home of Tracey Jeffrey, an 18th century thatched cottage located on the banks of Strangford Lough. Tracey is a qualified teacher, trainer and pattissier. She lived in France for many years, perfecting the art of patisserie making and has embarked on sharing her experiences in conjunction with showcasing local produce in her baking classes in her home. Today, along with Tracey’s expert bread baker, Fred, you will get the opportunity to try your hand at some traditional bread making. Quality ingredients play an important part in the baking class today, so watch and learn how Fred makes the perfect blend to create tasty treats. You are welcome to join in also should you wish.

Following your baking class, relax and enjoy some tea/coffee with the tasty treats that have been made during your visit before your return journey to your Crysta ship.
