Taste of Dublin makes a welcome return this September

The popular food and drinks festival is back - and it's better than ever. Brought to you in partnership with Taste of Dublin


It has long been an essential event on the food and drinks lover’s calendar so we’re delighted to report that Taste of Dublin is back for 2021.

Now in its 15th year, Taste has always been a celebration of Irish ingredients, food and producers, and this year is set to be the best yet. The event is running for five days, as opposed to the usual three, to ensure comfort and safety. And while there is reduced capacity there are more sessions available to ensure that no one misses out.

This year the theme is 'Savour the Moment' and there is a packed schedule of events and entertainment, all taking place in the beautiful Iveagh Gardens on Harcourt Street from September 1-5. 

Nine of Dublin’s top food offerings, including Pickle, The Salty Buoy by Niall Sabongi, Bites by Kwanghi, The Port House, and King Sitric, will be showcasing their signature dishes across the festival. Plus, as always, there will be plenty of inspiring talks and masterclasses on the Food for Thought stage with top chefs, food writers, and producers taking part.

This year’s chef lineup features the likes of Jordan Bailey of two-starred Aimsir and JP McMahon of Aniar, Galway, along with Taste stalwarts Rachel Allen, Kevin Dundon, Aoife Noonan and many more.
