Tourism is the lifeblood of every major city in the world, it provides jobs and revenue, incentivises the preservation of cultural heritage, and allows for the worldwide exchange of ideas and inspiration. The importance of tourism to Dublin is no different.


In October last year, following many months of consultation coordinated by the Grow Dublin Tourism Alliance’, Fáilte Ireland launched a new brand proposition for Dublin: “Dublin.  A Breath of Fresh Air.”


Food is a critical element of bringing this brand proposition to life through the food experience offered to visitors. This Dublin Food Chain breakfast morning is designed to inspire Dublin’s food community to seize the opportunity and become involved in the tourist sector, helping place Dublin on the international food stage.  


This event is being led by LEO Dun Laoghaire Rathdown and will be hosted in the spectacular Marlay Park House
