On a slightly bigger scale I’m looking forward to the Alltech Craft Brews and Food Fair which is taking place from the 5th to the 7th of February. Tickets are available from:
I love the variety offered at this festival, where we can have some special Irish and international beers. Hopefully those epic crisp sandwiches will be available this year too! Once again, let me wish you a happy 2016 and sláinte!
