The twelfth Taste of Dublin kicked off in Iveagh Gardens this afternoon, with more than 20 of the country's best eating establishments pitched up and over 32,000 people expected to attend. Here are the top things to splash your Florins on at this year's festival.

The Wild Goose: Seafood 99


Cost: 6 Florins

Try a 99 like you've never had before with Ranelagh haunt The Wild Goose's Seafood 99. A savoury cone filled with salmon rilettes, hundreds and thousands and a tuna tartare surprise at the bottom will leave you wondering how you've never tried one before.

Infusion, by Barry's Tea: Cocktails


Cost: Varies

Combine two of our most-loved beverages, Barry's Tea and cocktails, and you can only imagine the result. The Berry Fizz, made with Barry’s Very Berry, Hendrick's Gin, cranberry juice, Irish elderflower cordial, fresh lemon and soda water, will quench your thirst as temperatures are set to soar.

Deane's EIPIC: Peter Hannan's shorthorn pastrami, mustard, bone marrow and lovage with walled garden leaves


Cost: 7 Florins

Chef Danni Barry at Deane's EIPIC is the second female chef ever in Ireland to gain a Michelin star, so needless to say this is a dish you won't forget.

Urchin: Smoked Salmon, oysters, strawberries



Cost: 7 Florins

Urchin at Cliff Townhouse opened earlier this year and quickly gained recognition from food-lovers. The smoked salmon, oysters and strawberries combination is a sure winner, making it one of our top dishes to try.

Saba: Phad Nam Prik Pao Gai


Cost: 7 Florins

For a more filling dish, try an option from Thai restaurant Saba. The Phad Nam Prik Pao Gai contains chicken breast, chilli paste in oil, woodear mushrooms, onion, baby corn, spring onion, chilli and Thai sweet basil served with brown and red rice.


Indian restaurant Jaipur, in Dalkey, took home the titles of Best Dish and Most Innovative Dish at the launch event, making it another haunt not to miss.

Taste of Dublin in Iveagh Gardens runs from June 15 until June 18.
