For 4 days in June Dublin becomes a foodie paradise, with the city’s top restaurateurs and many specialty and artisan food producers, presenting their wares in an open-air setting in Dublin’s Iveagh Gardens.
If there is anyone who still believes that Ireland is a culinary desert, this event shattered that illusion for once and all.
Visitors can sample taster portions of signature dishes from restaurants such as the Michelen starred Chapter One, Thorntons and Patrick Guilbaud, indulge themselves in the Chocolate Experience and educate their palates at the Wine and Spirit Academy.
Whether you want to hone your own cooking skills at the chef’s demonstrations, learn about new foods appearing on Ireland’s increasingly multi-cultural food markets or just enjoy the tastes on offer, this really is a wonderful experience for anyone who enjoys good food.
It’s all held in a very laid back and good humoured athmosphere and it’s extremely popular – so if you are in Dublin at this time and want to give your taste buds a treat, book early!
The Iveagh Gardens
These beautiful gardens are something of an oasis in Dublin and are not anything like as well known as they deserve to be – even many Dubliners would be hard pressed to tell you where they are.
It’s a beautiful location for any event and perfect for al fresco eating – assuming the weather plays nicely!
