Dublin's number one food festival will be reopening it's doors this Thursday to start off the 2019 season.
If you've never been, I highly recommend you try it this year, especially because this sounds like it could be one of the best ones yet. Eatyard is a food festival located next the Bernard Shaw on Richmond Street, Dublin 2, with stalls upon stalls of delicious, mouth watering food from all over the world, as well as some tasty beers and wines.
Eatyard have announced that this year they will be expanding across the city, with a second location confirmed at Airfield in Swords, and a third to be announced later this Summer.
This is amazing news, because this festival is the best place to spend your evenings when the sun is shining, where you can meet with other foodies and taste the heavenly food available from a number of different stalls.
This year, Eatyard will be adding some new faces to their festivals, with Handsome Burger joining the food line-up. This Galway based vendor have some of the best fries I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. Triple fried in beef dripping and tossed in rosemary salt, the fries are then topped with chorizo, fried vegetables and garlic and lemon aioli, or Parmesan and maple bacon and garlic aioli. Can you believe that?! I am starving just from reading it.
