A festival devoted to crisps will take place in Dublin next week.

The four-day homage to crisps will take place across Eatyard and The Bernard Shaw in Dublin 2 from Thursday June 14 to June 17.

There will be a pop-up Brennans bread crisp sandwich station, O’Donnell’s crisps fairground games, and a "cheeky chipper Hunky Dorys-style".

There’ll also be a sit-down crisp and beer tasting menu, crisp eating competitions, blind crisp tasting and a debate on Tayto Vs King – a crucial debate for some.

“Packets”, a crisp-inspired art exhibition put together by Bex McNally, will also take place.

Entry is free, but organisers say buying an advance ticket for €10 guarantees you entry to the event, gets you €10 Eatyard vouchers and a packet of crisps and a can on arrival.

Eatyard Crisp Festival takes place at Eatyard and The Bernard Shaw, 9-10 Richmond Street, Dublin 2
