Sheridans 6th Annual Irish Food Festival

Food Festival ad cropedSheridans Cheesemongers will host our sixth Irish food festival on Sunday 24th May 2015, here at our Virginia Road Station headquarters in Co Meath. A huge array of Ireland’s top food producers will be here to sell, sample and talk about their wonderful foods. The idea of this annual event is to bring together the people who make the foods and the customers who love it. The criteria for the stalls are that the food is made in Ireland, is of great quality and that the people behind the stalls are the people who made the food. It will bring together over eighty of the best artisan food producers from around Ireland.

The festival will run between 10 am and 6 pm.

A €5 admission fee per vehicle helps towards the running cost of this not for profit Festival!
