Sheridans Cheesemongers will host it’s Irish food festival on Sunday, September 18th from 10am-6pm, at our Virginia Road Station Headquarters in Co. Meath.
It’s been a crazy couple years but we’re back!! Our festival began in 2009 as a gathering of our suppliers and has grown into one of the biggest food events of the year. We’ll have over 100 of Ireland’s greatest food producers as well as workshops and family entertainment for our 7,000+ visitors. While we have grown a lot since 2009, we keep the festival casual, fun, and family friendly.
We highlight the many producers from across Ulster, Connacht, Leinster, and Munster that make up the diverse food culture of our island. The ethos of the festival is simple: only Irish food on the tables, and only producers behind the tables. We implement strict Irish origin only guidelines and insist the producers themselves run their stalls. By doing this and keeping the cost of the stalls to a minimum, we attract many small genuine Irish food producers who you wouldn’t normally see at markets and fairs around the country.
Children are always central to the Festival and this year we are working with GIY for some great planting and art activities in our kids workshop tent!
Entry €5, children free, Free parking, children’s entertainment & free kids workshops
