We are proud to announce that Irish Village Market will be at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre (April 5th-7th, from 12 noon until 8pm) for OFFSET 2013 providing delicious fresh food from a number of our traders on the 6th and 7th.
“OFFSET has become one of the world’s most important creative events, each year hosting 24 of the most inspirational speakers in Dublin’s Bord Gáis Energy Theatre. It returns this year with its strongest line up to date, and will host a weekend of presentations, interviews, panel discussions and debates live on stage, with the very best of Irish and International designers, animators, illustrators, advertisers, artists, photographers and more. They will speak about their work, their ideas and inspirations and give insight into their practices and personal perspectives on their own careers over the course of three inspiring days.”
Our official blurb says
“As OffSet delegates walk outside we will forgive them for thinking they have been transported to a European Food Market. The aromatic smells that will fill the air will tempt their taste buds making it futile to try to resist the flavours and tastes brought to you by Irish Village Markets traders.
Irish Village Markets is an amalgamation of some of Ireland’s finest chefs, growers and producers all under the one umbrella. Visitors to any of the lunchtime markets enjoy the tastes & quality food made with top quality ingredients and flavours from all over the world in the unique city centre settings.
At OffSet delegates will be able to enjoy Indian Street food from Kerala Kitchen, fresh fish and divine chips with homemade sauces from Say Fish, seriously good gourmet burgers from Mango, New York style giros (with an Irish twist) from Grub Hub and authentic Thai Food from Kanum as well as lots, lots more. You can even relax with a perfect cup of coffee from our ever so Irish Dave owner of “Is Maith Loim Coffee”. So while your creative brain takes a break why not get your creative juices flowing (see what we did there! )
People travel from all over the world to come and be a part of OFFSET and we are delighted to be there too!
We hope to see you there!

You will be able to munch on a gourmet burger, delight in the flavours of Thai cuisine or try an Irish gyro while watching the hustle and bustle and enjoying the crack of the Festival in the heart of the city.
St Patrick’s may be more famous, but the city’s second medieval cathedral has an abundance of charm. It is beautiful and open to visitors. The joy of the market is that it is such a modern food market with stall holder and chefs from all over the world situated in what is an ancient and sacred Irish landmark. Dating back to around 1030, it is said that its bells have pealed over the capital since the early 1400s.

Irish Village Market supported the inaugural Rugby7s event as part of The Umbrella Foundation.
Great concept and will be a lovely event going forward. Lots more to do to get supporters to come in their droves but a worthy cause and a great day out.
The organisers say “In the last number of years 7s rugby has taken off as an international sport, so much so that in 2016, 7s rugby will be in the Olympics. Ireland is currently the only major rugby playing nation that does not have a professional 7s team, and without an organised 7s competition at schools level, the gap is set to grow”.
Apart from the rugby aspect, the Umbrella 7s will be supporting the work of The Umbrella Foundation, an Irish charity which has been working with destitute
children in Nepal since 2005. With this competition, we foresee Irish youths helping to raise vital funds and awareness for children who, but for Umbrella, would be living in unbearable conditions.
This tournament has been fully endorsed by the Leinster Schools Committee and by Jamie Heaslip, The Umbrella Foundation’s Patron, who in June 2011 volunteered with Umbrella in Nepal and as you will see from the pictures also came along on the day.
Looking forward to 2013!
We are delighted to be involved in the inaugural year of The Umbrella Foundation Under 17s Rugby7s.
Taking place on Saturday, 24th March in Terenure College – it should be really good fun. We have a few trader heading in to provide all who attend with great food while they watch the crack on the field.
The guys involved were saying this competition is slightly different to others, as not only will the participants enjoy finishing off their season by playing one of the most exciting brands of rugby and enhancing all the skills used in the 15-a-side game, but it will also help orphaned and trafficked children in Nepal, one of the world’s poorest countries.
The Umbrella 7s will be supporting the work of The Umbrella Foundation, an Irish charity which has been working with destitute
children in Nepal since 2005. With this competition, the organisers say Irish youths will help to raise vital funds and awareness for children who, but for Umbrella, would be living in unbearable conditions.

Check it out and we will see you there!
