You know Spring has finally arrived when the quintessential Taste of Dublin food festival details areannounced. For the ninth year running, from Thursday 12th to Sunday 15th June , it returns to the Iveagh Gardens, adjacent to the National Concert Hall in the centre of the capital and this year  in partnership with Electrolux.
This is a much anticipated social event and as this year's theme is " Food For Thought ",  focus will be on provenance and for guests to think about what they consume every day.
Once again Taste of Dublin is bringing a superb selection of restaurants to the festival, all offering small tasters of their signature dish, from Michelin * Chapter One, where Ross Lewis  will showcase his decadent sweet treats.
