Eatyard is Bodytonic’s Food Platform that we use to Create & Promote anything to do with Food & Drinks, be it; Brands, Events, Takeovers, Markets, Festivals, Talks & More
**All of our spaces are temporarily closed but will reopen again the end of January**
A permanent street food market beside The Bernard Shaw with 5 different food vendors ranging from Asian & Mexican Cuisines, to Toasties, Vegan Goodness & Pizzas; The Saucy Cow, Griolladh, Janets, Village Pizza Dublin & La Cocina Cuevas. You can just rock up and order from our food vendors for takeaway (some of them are on delivery platforms too) If you’d like to sit out in Eatyard that’s cool too – but booking in is advised. More info here.
Born out of running Wine & Cheese festivals for the last couple of years and seeing as we won’t be able to do that for a while, we’ve decided to start our own shop selling whopper wines, quality cheeses, crafty cans of all liquid types and a few other bits & pieces we like to spread, nibble and drizzle over things.

A new socially distanced dining experience on Jam Park’s rooftop every Friday & Saturday with street food vendors; Naughty Burger & The Saucy Cow. Book a table of 6, order via your phone and get entertainment for the night. More info here
The first of our many street food deli’s (to come) We built a hatch at the front entrance of The Lighthouse and started selling hot drinks, porridge, sandwiches, wine & cheese boxes, sweets, games & more. All available for on the go, 7 days a week. More info here.
Think Crisp Festival, Gin Fusion, The Wine & Cheese Festivals, Yuleyard, Monthly Markets, Sunday Sessions & Others. 2018 was the year we began taking on bigger ideas and ventures with Eatyard such as The Crisp Fest & Wine & Cheese in our Portobello location. In 2019 we went even bigger – we cruised over to Pot Duggans in Co. Clare to run Sunday Dining Sessions with some of the finest Irish chefs, we hosted our Wine & Cheese Festivals in the Iveagh Gardens and we began running a monthly ‘Market Park’ series in Jam Park, Swords, our newest venue. We ran our first post lockdown market in Dec – here we showcased Irish design collectives, local artists, house clearances, nail artists, vinyl vendors, vintage clothing, crafts, furniture, jewellery, books, bakers, makers, growers and doers. Hopefully we’ll get back to running events in 2021
Eatyard first appeared at Bodytonic’s Beatyard Festival, Dun Laoghaire in 2016 as a motley crew of street food vendors feeding hungry festival goers. We thought street food deserved more of a home than just popping up at festivals and so in November of that year we opened up a semi-permanent food market next to The Bernard Shaw in Portobello. There, we welcomed some tasty trucks and stalls through the gates including vendors like Vish Shop, Kale and Coco, Wing It and Box Burger. We even built an Eatyard stage to host talks and demos where we’ve cooked with Levi Roots, chatted with 3FEs Colin Harmon and Mr. Holmes Bakery in San Francisco. After 12 years in Portobello, The Bernard Shaw & Eatyard move north side to Crossguns bridge, beside the Royal Canal.
