Phoenix Park, Dublin 8
Now in its 17th year, Bord Bia Bloom has become one of Ireland’s largest showcases celebrating the best of Irish horticulture, food and drink. Originally created to promote plants, garden design, horticulture and gardening, Bord Bia’s role in promoting food and drink has allowed Bloom to develop further. The show has grown into something which not only makes for a great day out, but also offers a huge range of practical information on everything from gardening, to growing fruit and vegetables, cooking and culture.
Bloom spans over 70 acres in the Phoenix Park and in 2022 showcased 19 show gardens, nine postcard gardens and 17 nursery displays, over 80 food and drink producers and 130 retailers. Last year’s event welcomed over 110,000 visitors, including 15,000 children. The growing visitor numbers to the show reflects the public’s passion for horticulture and food, and Bloom is now viewed as one of the unmissable events in the nation’s summer calendar.
