Dr Clare Apothecary and Clinic Herb Walk
Galway City, Co. Galway
Dr Clare Apothecary and Clinic provides a walking tour of Galway City where you can learn about the sourcing and blending of herbs and spices for teas, tinctures and more.

Dr Clare Apothecary and Clinic is located on Sea Road in Galway City and this is where your herb walk begins. Start the walk with a cup of Dr Clare's herbal tea. Herbalist Dr Clare will lead the herb walk from her shop through the herb and flower beds of Galway City.

Modern medicine started in old apothecaries and evolved over thousands of years to the pharmacies we recognise today. A lot of the present foraging culture is based on the herbs and spices you can taste, cook, see and smell in Dr Clare Clinic and Apothecary.

Learn about the native plants in Galway and Ireland that have been used for healing, eating and drinking. You will also be shown the herbs that are foraged for eating, making creams, medicinal teas, tinctures and much more. Hear the many stories passed down through generations of families about herbal medicine in Ireland.

Wear comfortable footwear and bring rain gear. Bring a notebook and pen to write it all down. Children under 16 are free.
