Just Desserts

First it had a Burger Fes­ti­val, then a Whiskey Fes­ti­val, so it only seem right that Cork should fol­low all those with a Dessert Fes­ti­val. Run­ning from Mon­day to Sun­day July 2, it will show­case the finest con­fec­tions the city has to of­fer. A a num­ber of venues in­clud­ing Elec­tric, Sober Lane and Cafe Velo will pull out all the stops to de­liver tast­ings, work­shops and events to ap­peal to all with a sweet tooth.
