The Big Grill is the largest BBQ and Craft Beer festival in Europe.
The festival celebrates the art of cooking with fire & smoke bringing chefs cooks and pitmasters from Ireland, UK and further along with over 20,000 visitors to smell, taste, discover and learn about all kinds of barbecuing, grilling, smoking, vegetables, meats, delicacies and drinks.
Over 20 restaurants join for the weekend, with the only rule being they must cook with live fire using natural charcoal and wood only; no gas or electricity. Cue competitive fire pit builds in the lead up to the festival and plenty of theatre over the weekend. This years fire-filled line up, curated by pitmaster & festival co-founder Andy Noonan, has a distinct international street food vibe with New York, London, Buenos Aires and Birmingham all represented.
How can I get there?
We advise coming along by public transport as parking is limited and restricted in the area.
The Dart’s nearest stations Lansdowne Road and Sandymount are but a hop skip and a jump away. If you fancy coming along by bus then jump on any of the 46a, 145, 7 or the 39a.
DO NOT obstruct driveways, neighbouring properties or park illegally as this can cause great inconvenience to our neighbours.
It is also easily accessible by foot, bicycle & car.
