Tate of Dublin is just around the corner, and we're getting pretty excited for the foodie festival.

There are a few ways to get prepped and ready for the bountiful banquet, and like any festival, there are some specific tips and tricks to help you make the most of the experience.

1. Plan ahead

Visit the website and plan the day as there is so much to do and see with all the demos, master classes and new Food for Thought.

2. Create your own foodie checklist

Check out the menus on offer from each restaurant ahead of time to curate the perfect gourmet checklist. 

There are over 20 restaurants to choose from, so it’s good to come with a plan on what you want to sample.

3. Check out the live musical entertainment line up

There is plenty more than food on offer at Taste of Dublin. 

Entertainment will be on the main stage from noon on Thursday to close on Sunday evening, and keeping the buzz alive are bands such Spring Break and Smash Hits.

4. Remember the weather

Taste of Dublin is primarily an outdoor event, and the forecast is good – so don’t forget the sun cream.

5. Swap your cash for florins

Taste of Dublin has its own currency, so be sure to exchange euro for Florins.

Visit one of the Florin banks dotted around the venue (or use one of the many roving Florin sellers) to buy your currency.

One Euro equates to one Florin.
