A look back at Eatyard 2018
As we get ready for the re-opening of Eatyard 2019. We thought it would be lovely to look back on what a fun year we had in 2018. From testing out our new mini festivals to our many vendors that have been with us, eating competitions, book launches & much more! Here’s a look at some of our highlights….
We’ve had so many delicious vendors pass through our gates throughout the years and 2018 was a lovely one. Kale & Coco, Buttercream Dream, Box Burger, Wing It, Goode Life. Mr Donut, Taco Truck, White Mausu, Flour Artist, Waffley Great Pancakes, Vish Shop, Blue Hare, Kerala Kitchen, The Vintage Parlour & many more pop-ups throughout the year. Here’s a few food porn snaps to get your tummy rumbling.

Wine & Cheese Festival
Our first mini Eatyard festival EVER kicked off last year in March and boy were we surprised with the footfall we got with such a simple event idea. Two of our favourite things in one place without being too fussy & fancy.. We had cheese & wine coming out our ears for the three days. We had talks, tastings, demos, some cheese & wine in between and some amazing Irish vendors with a spread of their delicious & best products on display from Slow Food Ireland, Corleggy, The Cheese Press, Ploughman’s Daughter, O’Brien’s, Quintessential & Greenman Wines.
Keep an ole eye out for Wine & Cheese 2019 it’s going to be much bigger and better. Want to get involved? Contact us here

Yes we were the first in the country to do and we we most definitely pulled it off. We even invited the main man himself Mr Tayto to our grand red carpet opening on the first day. The 4 days was filled with crisp sambos, Tayto vs King debate (very serious), crisp tastings from Hunky Dory’s, O’Donnells, Brennan’s Bread and our very own tuck shop with all those crips classics we all love like Hot Lips, Rancheros, Skips, Banshee Bones (which sold out in a few hours). We had so much fun & we ate so much crisps.
