Sheridans Irish Food Festival

Last weekend saw the sixth Sheridans Irish Food Festival take place. It's an event we have been attended every year, rain or shine. Thankfully this year was one filled with lots and lots of sunshine! We didn't make it down till about 3.30 but there was still a steady stream of visitors making their way in. The event is well laid out so it never feels too packed especially since there is a good seating area where people can sit down, enjoy their food and listen to live music.

Taco Taco, Dame Court, Dublin 2

In the run up to impending motherhood I have been trying to meet up with friends for quiet catch ups before the peace is gone forever! One place I have been dying to try is Taco Taco especially since the concept comes from the team behind the very successful San Lorenzos. Taco Taco is located on the ground floor of the Odessa building in Dame Court and describes itself as a pop up restaurant for the brunch crowd though it was dinner we were there for!

Boyne Valley Fruit Farm Blossom Walk

This weekend saw the first events of the Boyne Valley Food Series take place. The Bective in Kells held their seafood festival which Nicky from One Life Adventure attended and which you can read about here and Boyne Grove Fruit Farm opened their beautiful orchards to the public. To say they weren't blessed with the weather is a bit of understatement but Sunday saw a much welcomed break in the rain which we and lots of other families took advantage of.

The Boyne Valley Food Series 2015

So I know I haven't blogged in a really loooog time so hopefully noone totally dismisses this post as spam! Life got a bit hectic and the blog took a bit of a backseat but I'm hoping to fix all that in the next while. My plans however may be scuppered for a little while though with the impending arrival of baby number 1. So please forgive me in advance!

What better way to start back afresh though than with the announcement of the return of the 3rd Boyne Valley Food Series which kicks off this weekend!  For the last two years this wonderful series of events has turned the summer season into one full of food trails, festivals, farmers markets and fun. Personally it has allowed me to discover a whole new side to the county that I call home and its neighbour, Louth.
