"To help the public make the most of Dublin Wine Fest, we've gathered participating venues into four city 'hubs', which are featured in our festival map (available at each venue, or to download from GreatIrishBeverages.com).

Each venue's festival offer is detailed is on the map, and the idea is that you can go check out several venues in the one evening, depending on what takes your fancy.

So in the Green Luas hub, you could meet friends at 'aperitivo o'clock' at l'Officina's terrace for a Venetian-style Aperol spritz, or pop over to Rock Lobster's bar for a glass of Picpoul de Pinet and a tasting of Irish oysters.Next, book yourself into Ananda for a main course pairing of slow-cooked Tandoori lamb and a €6 flight of paired wines, and finish up with a tasting flight of wine-inspired cocktails at Candlelight Bar, or a port and chocolate pairing at The Port House Ibericos."

Dublin Wine Fest runs from April 20-25 across 32 venues, and includes special deals, seminars, tastings and competitions. By purchasing a €5 wristband you receive a 30pc discount on at least two festival wines at participating bars and restaurants. Learn more at www.greatirishbeverages.com.
