The Eatyard Stage
Over the weekend we’ll hear from our some of Irelands top sommeliers and wine writers including John Wilson (Irish Times), Cathryn Steunenberg (Aimsir), Philip Dunne (Westbury/ Sommelier of the Year 2018 + 2019). There will be a daily Cracker Challenge (eat three cream crackers to win a prize!) and Grape Expectations Challenge where competitors have to make as much wine as they can (with their feet!). We’ll be chatting about all the important things like ‘Why we love acid’ with DJ Marcus O’Laoire and Shane Murphy (Findlaters Wine) and ‘The Perfect Cheese Toastie’ with Kevin Powell (Loose Canon). We’re even going to record a live podcast at the festival ‘Boyne Valley Bosses’ with Russell Alford and Patrick Hanlon aka The Gastrogays. Add to that Cheesy Singalong Social, Easy Singles speed dating, Sing For Your Dinner karaoke, The Dublin Ukulele Club, Trinity Orchestra, R’n’Brie special from Holla Back and cheese wheel rolling and all sorts of other stuff with MOB Comedy Club.
