There are plenty of food options at Bloom, for example, the Food Village will feature more than 90 food producers showcasing the best of Irish food; from chocolate to smoked salmon, cheese to beetroot juice, artisan sausages, fresh vegetables and meats, coffee and jams.
There are also on-site restaurants, Country Crest Food Fayre and Farm Shop, The Garden View Restaurant and Bistro Bloom offering indoor and outdoor dining options with a wide range of tasty food options from artisan food trucks located around the site.
Bring snacks and back up food just in case your kids aren’t keen on the options on offer. There are plenty of spots to set up a mini picnic for them, while the dedicated Picnic Area is also a good spot to take some time out, relax and enjoy the live entertainment.
Top tip: When you first arrive, scope out what’s on offer as you go around to see what you think your kids might like and plan to come back at feeding times. It’s also a good idea to try and time your meals outside of the peak times, e.g. try an early lunch at noon with a snack later after the lunch rush has died down.
Top essentials for the day:

- Refillable water bottles, you can refill at the water stations
- Books or toys for kids to play with when you have rest stops
- Label coats, jumpers and backpacks with your mobile number in case any smallies get lost.
