Ireland’s foodie scene is alive and kicking, and nowhere is this more evident than with the influx of fabulous food festivals. Here we take a look at some of the tasty offerings for the rest of the year.

Dig in! x

Taste of Dublin (14th – 17th June)
A staple in every foodie’s festival diet, this year’s Taste of Dublin will return to the stunning Iveagh Gardens from 14 – 17 June 2018. Running over four delicious days, you can expect interactive demos, masterclasses with some of Ireland’s top chefs, live entertainment, and of course, plenty of tasty treats! And as if that isn’t enough to satisfy even the hungriest foodie, yours truly will be there as a brand ambassador in association with NEFF, as part of their ‘Ingredient Series’. Catch Sadie live at the producers’ panel, where she will be talking all things bone broth, and the importance of quality, homegrown ingredients.

The perfect afternoon for some lawn lounging at #Taste17 ☀

Eatyard (3rd – 5th August)
With a permanent home on South Richmond Street, Eatyard offers up the foodie festival vibe all year round.  Yet each year they up sticks and take their Irish street food expertise to Dun Laoghaire to fill the bellies of the Beatyard revelers and keep them festival fit. Expect to fill up on Box Burger, Kinara Kitchen, and Vish Shop, along with live demos. Quite the line-up if you ask us!

The Big Grill Festival (16th – 19th August)
Returning for its fifth year in a row this August, The Big Grill once again takes up residence in Dublin’s Herbert Park. Every carnivore’s dream, Europe’s largest BBQ insists on chefs stepping away from electricity and taking it back to basics. Using only live fire, charcoal, and wood, think strong smokey flavours washed down with cold beer.

Theatre of Food ( 31st Aug – 2nd Sep)
Bringing the picnic to Stradbally, Theatre of Food once again headlines the foodie element of Ireland’s favourite music festival, Electric Picnic. Expect masterclasses, demonstrations, fashion shows, cocktail-making classes, cake artistry, and so much more. This is a must-see for anyone interested in Ireland’s contemporary food culture and seeking to find the next big thing in food.

Delighted to see the theatre so full this afternoon! #ToF2015 #EP2015
