Dublin to host chocolate festival

A three-day event taking place later this month in Ireland's capital could offer stag party revellers a chance to do something unique for their celebration.

The Temple Bar Chocolate Festival begins October 30th and features a number of events - some of which are free.

Attendees can take part in a truffle-making class or visit the Meeting House Square's 20-stall Chocolate Fair, where vendors will sell their coffees, hot chocolates, pastries and other related goodies.

The festival is organised by the Temple Bar Cultural Trust and also features tasting sessions, talks and cooking demonstrations.

Temple Bar has kept its medieval street pattern and is known for its cultural events, lively nightlife and tourist attractions.

Another event taking place in the capital this month is the Dublin Marathon, which will see thousands of athletes take to the streets on October 26th.

Now in its 30th year, the race is expected to see around half of its 10,000 entrants come from foreign shores.ADNFCR-2122-ID-19407398-ADNFCR
