About Bord Bia Bloom
Now in its 16th year, Bloom has become one of Ireland’s largest showcases celebrating the best of Irish horticulture, food and drink. Originally created to promote plants, garden design, horticulture and gardening, Bord Bia’s role in promoting food and drink has allowed Bloom to develop further. The show has grown into something which not only makes for a great day out, but also offers a huge range of practical information on everything from gardening, to growing fruit and vegetables, cooking and culture.
Bloom spans over 70 acres in the Phoenix Park and in 2019 (our last physical event) showcased 22 show gardens,14 postcard gardens, some 50 floral and botanical art displays, 160 retailers, over 100 food and drink producers and more than 100 live talks, demonstrations and family friendly activities. The growing visitor numbers to the show reflects the public’s passion for horticulture and food, and Bloom is now viewed as one of the unmissable events in the nation’s summer calendar.
Bord Bia is the Irish government agency charged with the promotion, trade development and marketing of the Irish food, drink and horticulture industry. Bord Bia’s mission is to drive through market insight and, in partnership with industry, the commercial success of a world class Irish food, drink and horticulture industry.
