Food & Wine Show - This Weekend

The Food & Wine Magazine Christmas Show gets underway this afternoon from 4pm at the RDS in Dublin. I’m heading along for a few hours tomorrow – hotel booked, diesel in the van, bags at the ready and credit and bank cards whining at the possibility of what might happen if they make their way out of my wallet.

I was looking to stay somewhere close to the RDS and bagged a room at Bewleys in Ballsbridge. It’s €89 on the Bewley’s website (or was yesterday) but decided to take a plunge at the random hotels on LastMinute.com for €69. Guess which random hotel was drawn? 🙂 That’s the ticket paid for right there.

If I’m not foodied out and turn out to be keen to stick around Dublin, I might try for the convention centre on Sunday but I’ve the ticket sorted for the RDS tomorrow so one event at a time. If you’re heading along to the RDS, check out the exhibitor list, the artisan village and details of the chef’s main stage.

Tickets are available via Ticketmaster.ie priced €20 individually, though spotted an offer of €5 tickets for tonight only if you’ve got any of the promo codes, something I don’t have.

Any readers of AGF or other food bloggers heading along at the weekend? Or does Taste of Dublin tickle your fancy more?
