Yelp’s Backyard Bazaar – Dublin, 6 May 2012

We love food events here at CheapEats but have to admit that there isn’t often a whole lot at the cheap end of the spectrum. The likes of Taste of Dublin can be enjoyable but come with a fairly hefty price tag.  So we were pleasantly surprised and impressed to hear about the Yelp Backyard Bazaar – a completely free food event.

Organised by the review site, the event takes place in the beer garden of the George Bernard Shaw pub in Portobello from 1pm – 3pm on Sunday 6th May.  There’ll be stands from a number of Dublin restaurants giving free samples of food and drink.  The restaurants include Burritos and Blues, the Brioche Cafe, the Corner Bakery and Brother Hubbard’s, a new spot on Capel St that I’m hearing a lot of great things about.  There will also be a full bar – with some sponsored items for free.

All you have to do to go along is to RSVP on the event page on  If you’re interested, make sure you do so soon, as that outdoor space in the George Bernard Shaw fills up with hipsters pretty damn fast.
