Where Food Lovers Feast

Taste of Dublin returned to the stunning Iveagh Gardens from 15 – 18 June 2017. Over four indulgent days the city’s latest, greatest and hottest restaurants each fashioned together exquisite signature dishes, allowing visitors to create their dream tasting menu at the ultimate foodie festival.

Ireland’s food culture is more diverse and more influenced by international cuisine than ever before and to reflect this shift, our theme for 2017’s festival was ‘Flavours of the World’. Visitors experienced a strong international dimension with demo chefs and restaurants incorporating a foreign cuisine element into their menu, be it a foreign twist on an Irish classic or simply an international favourite cooked by some of the greatest chefs and restaurants operating in this country. As always, all dishes were of the very highest quality and everyone who attended had a uniquely special experience!

Those in attendance also had the chance to mingle with award-winning chefs and like-minded foodies. They enjoyed a host of interactive demos and masterclasses, inspiring culinary talks, beer and wine tasting, or simply relaxed and took in the live entertainment. All at Taste of Dublin – ‘Where Food Lovers Feast’

Our next event will run from 14 – 17 June 2018.
