With the end of summer and the beginning of autumn comes a change in scenery, and a change in our food palettes to accommodate the soon-to-be festive season.

Despite the cold weather, one of the best things about the winter has to be the food. Gourmet meals, culinary masterclasses and a cosy setting are all on the menu of Taste of Dublin's new event.

The festive edition is set to run from November 28 to December 1 in the RDS, and is modelled on a similar winter food festival in London.

The winter version of Taste of Dublin will have fewer sessions (six over four days) but will feature huge indoor square footage and a comfortable experience.

While 32,000 flocked to the Iveagh Gardens in June, 18,000 attendees are expected over the festive four days. What does this mean? More room to manoeuvre around and get the best views of masterclasses.

Entertainment, food and more will be housed inside the RDS, Merrion Road, for the perfect way to kick off the holiday season.

From November 28 until December 1, 2019, get inspired in time for Christmas.

Fifteen of Ireland’s top restaurants and food experiences will be present in this winter wonderland, ready to serve up a selection of over 50 dishes for audience members.

A packed line up of cooking demos, drinks masterclasses and live entertainment are all in the works, with 30 top chefs warming up the kitchen.

Taste of Dublin's summer festival has taken place in the capital for the last 14 years, and is now building on the hype and success just in time for the cold weather. Food is the perfect warm-up, we say.

Inspired by Tesco Finest, we can't wait to sit in on the beautiful baking shows, food and drink sampling with Ireland's top brands and enjoy the live musical entertainment.

Indulge yourself in all things food and book your tickets for Taste of Dublin: Festive Edition online here before they sell out. 

Dont worry: We won't be judgemental like Ginny Weasley if you eat your way through the RDS:

Additional security measures have been put in place ahead of Justin Bieber's sold-out performance at the RDS on Thursday June 21.

The Canadian singer will bring his Pupose World Tour to Dublin tomorrow and concert organisers have asked fans to arrive when the gates open at 5:00pm as they will be subject to individual “pat downs and metal detector checks for their safety and comfort”.

As the RDS is located in a residential area, no queuing is allowed outside the venue prior to gates opening. Early arrivals will be tuned away and asked to return at a later stage.

Due to heightened security at event venues throughout Europe, a number of extra measures will be enforced to ensure the safety and confidence of all attendees:

  • Be aware of bogus ticket sellers.

  •  No backpacks, large bags or any large objects.

  •  Only bags of A4 size (210x297mm) will be admitted after searching.

  • You will be subject to a “pat down” and a “wand” metal detector check.

  • Check ticket for correct approach route before leaving home.

  • You will be asked to show your tickets before joining queues.

  • Patrons are advised to keep their ticket in a safe place on their approach to the venue.

  •  The following items will not be permitted: alcohol, banners or flags larger than A4, cameras with more than 1” lens, fireworks, flashlights, food, garden furniture or seats, glass or cans, glowsticks, inflatable balls or   balloons, laser pointers, selfie sticks, shooting sticks, studs & spikes, umbrellas, video cameras & audio devices & weapons.

Concert organisers are advising patrons attending the gig to use public transport as parking at the RDS is limited.

However, if you are planning on taking the car, An Garda Síochána have devised a traffic management plan. For full details please check www.garda.ie.

For those of you attending the concert with children, there will be TAG-A-KID safety wristbands available at all the customer care points both outside and inside the venue.

Doors – 5pm, John Gibbons – 5.45pm, Halsey – 7pm, Justin Bieber – 8.15PM – 10.15PM.

Double Act, The Suitcase Kid, The Story of Tracy Beaker, Vicky Angel… If you're getting all the nostalgic feels just hearing those words then we have some great news for you.

As one of the most successful children's authors of the last two decades, Dame Jacqueline Wilson has penned countless bestsellers, but for the most part she shies away from the public eye.

If you're a fan of her work though, get yourself to the RDS on May 5 at 6.30pm, where Jacqueline will be speaking as part of Dublin's International Literature Festival.

According the the event organisers, the famed author will be chatting about "some of her most popular characters, including Tracy Beaker and Hetty Feather, and her brand new book, Rent-a-Bridesmaid."

Tickets start at a (frankly bargainous) €5 for kids and €7 for adults and are on sale now.
