10 things you have to eat at Body & Soul this weekend


FESTIVAL SEASON KICKS off proper this weekend as Body & Soul takes place in Ballinlough Castle, Co. Westmeath.

It’s one of the most scenic and unique festivals in Ireland, and you’re truly spoiled for choice when it comes to food options.

Here’s just some of what you simply have to eat this weekend.

1. A crisp sandwich at the King’s Inn

Yes, King Crisps are entering the crisp sandwich market in a big way and will have crisp sandwiches available at the festival this weekend.

Perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner, if you ask us.

2. Something healthy from The Happy Pear

If you can’t bear a sausage and rasher sandwich, then The Happy Pear will be on hand for healthy festival offerings.

Look at those melons.

3. A cold pressed juice from Sprout & Co

4. Patatas bravas from Home Fries
