The Taste of Dublin

Indulge your Inner Foodie

It’s hard to believe that Taste of Dublin has been tickling our taste buds for 10 years. Amidst the packed schedule of Dublin festivals Taste delivers a standout weekend of amazing artisan food and drink. The highly anticipated foodie festival takes place in one of our favourite hidden gems, the Iveagh Gardens from the 11th – 14th of June. The venue is easily accessible from Harcourt Luas Station or by a pleasant stroll through Georgian Dublin.
