Taste of Dublin: why the Christmassy food festival is a must this winter

Taste of Dublin Festive Edition

Calling all foodies. Taste of Dublin: Festive Edition is returning to the capital. Here’s everything you need to know about the ultimate winter food festival


Food is possibly the greatest thing about this time of year. The spices, the cheeses, the mince pies… all paired with the perfect wine or hot port. Delicious.

What if we told you that you could indulge in all manner of festive food for an entire weekend? Taste of Dublin is coming to the RDS this November 28-December 1 and is gearing up to be Ireland’s ultimate winter food festival.

Inspired by Tesco Finest*, the Taste of Dublin: Festive Edition will offer many of the iconic features enjoyed by visitors at Taste of Dublin’s summer event… but with a Christmassy twist. What more could you want?

What to expect

As always, Taste of Dublin: Festive Edition will include a generous offering of complimentary activities for visitors to take part in.

From cooking demonstrations to hands-on cooking classes, to whiskey tastings and wine masterclasses, there will be live entertainment to satisfy all foodies. What’s more, celebrity chefs and representatives from Ireland’s top restaurants will be on-hand all weekend-long.

Taste of Dublin Festive Edition

Demos from 20 of Ireland’s best-loved chefs

Spot some of Ireland’s top culinary talents as they chop, slice, dice and mince their way through their favourite festive recipes. Some familiar faces include Rachel Allen, Shane Smith, Rory O’Connell and Holly White (to name but some).

Tuck into incredible dishes from 15 restaurants

Feast on some of Dublin’s most popular restaurants, with tastings from Grálinn, Jaru, Lil Portie and Loose Canon to name but a few.

Free masterclasses

A wide range of masterclasses is on offer this year. If you’re crafting, baking, butchering or putting together your dream cheese board for entertaining this winter – Taste of Dublin: Festive Edition has you covered.

Wine & spirits tastings

From Wicklow Way wines to the Powerscourt Distillery – there are lots of festive drinks to sample this year at Taste.

Live entertainment

As organisers say, “What good is a festival without the right sounds?” One of the UK’s top all-female music groups, High On Heels, will set the musical tone for the weekend – with collaborations between a DJ, percussion, vocalist and a saxophonist. “This year’s entertainment will be world-class and from an act never seen here before in Ireland.”

Taste of Dublin: Festive Edition takes place in the RDS from November 28 – December 1, 2019. Get your tickets, from just €15, here.
