There’s just two days to go until Taste of Dublin returns to the Iveagh Gardens and this year’s festival has a lot in store for dedicated revellers.

With more than 20 Irish restaurants setting up shop for the extended weekend, one couldn’t possibly sample everything but it’s certainly worth a try.

Festival favourites will reclaim their spots at Ireland’s biggest food event but new additions, including Camden Street's Pickle, are bound to please the mass of festival-goers heading to Taste this weekend (June 15 – June 18).

If you’re already envisioning yourself with that glass of champagne in hand, basking in the sun in Iveagh Gardens here’s what’s on the menu.
