What our Participants are saying

[Baking Academy Ireland is voted the Best]. We attended the “hands on” Sweet Tarts and Pies Course taught by Mary and Caroline on Sunday last. Both teachers were extremely professional, knowledgeable, patient and personable and made the whole day a fun experience. We had a wonderful day. Having taken other courses in cookery schools we can honestly say that the Baking Academy Ireland courses are the best and we are looking forward to attending a another course soon. Many thanks.
