It’s almost that time of year again, when we start thinking about St. Patrick’s Day weekend celebrations. This year, they include the all-new Me Auld Flower Food and Drink Festival, taking place in the iconic surrounds of the historic Dublin City Fruit, Veg and Flower Market!

From March 16th-19th, Dublin will host a range of chefs, growers, brewers and distillers – and everything in between. Finally, the exciting festival line-up has been announced, with plenty of big names taking centre stage, including; Pitt Bros; Mark O’Brien; Shauna Froydenlund; The Saucy Cow; 3FE; and White Hag, to name a few.

We were seriously excited to hear that the festival will showcase dishes from lots of different countries, all with an Irish twist. These menus span multiple continents but still find a way to reach home with Bullet’s Chinese Irish food; the African-inspired Irish food of Our Table; and Irish tapas from Blanca Valencia.

Almost 50 vendors will showcase their products and dishes – meaning there’ll absolutely be something for everyone! If you’re more interested in drinking, you’re also in luck, because there’ll be a pouring of spirits and craft beers from brewers like Dan Kelly’s Cider and Galway Bay Brewery.


For a special and more private experience, there is the ticketed event of Eat the Head off Ya, with drinks from Neighbourhood Wine and a curated menu from chef Eric Matthews. This event seats only 24 guests per sitting and overlooks the entire market.

Other festival highlights to look forward to include; a coddle cook-off competition; an onion-eating challenge; a live fire cooking area hosted by Big Grill; Me Auld Flower walking tours; an oyster bar; as well as an array of demos, classes, tastings and workshops, all curated to celebrate the Irish food and drink scene, as it is now.
