Taste of Dublin 2018

Iveagh Gardens

Thu 14 June 2018 – Sun 17 June 8

Tickets: From €15


Get ready for another incredible weekend of delicious food and drinks sampling, cooking masterclasses and the most creative dishes as Taste of Dublin returns to the Iveagh Gardens.

One of our favourite Dublin foodie festivals is back and this year’s theme is ‘Food Lover’s Playground’. Dublin and international chefs have been busy dreaming up their own take on the theme to bring to this year’s festival. This will bring a playful and vibrant twist to the event. If you love food, this is one event you can’t afford to miss. Indulge your tastebuds in a stunning celebration of some of Dublin’s best food and drink.

Taste of Dublin is set to be even bigger and better this summer – with celebrity chef and food author Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Candice Brown, winner of Great British Bake Off set to make appearances. The River Cottage presenter is to appear and will carry out a food demonstration before taking part in a Q&A session on the Friday, while Candice Brown of GBBO will take to the stage on Saturday, June 16th.

Taste of Dublin is a four-day gastronomic experience that brings so many styles of food and experiences together. It really is the ultimate food lover’s playground!


“But it’s not just all play, Taste of Dublin aims to educate and inspire through masterclasses and specialised workshops where you really learn exciting cooking skills and tips. Discovering more in-depth knowledge of what you’re passionate about as a food lover is the reason Taste of Dublin attracts such a wide audience,” says Taste of Dublin’s Managing Director.


With all this food sampling you’ll need something to wash it down and there’s no shortage of choice here either! From O’Brien’s Wine Experience to World Class Spirits you’ll find something to tickle your taste buds. Also for the first time, the World Class Bartender of the Year Competition will bring its Irish final to Taste of Dublin with the winner being crowned live at The Iveagh Gardens on Sunday the 17th.

Don’t miss out on this four-day extravaganza of eating, drinking and live entertainment. The best kind of festival in our eyes!
