I was so delighted to hear the news that Lobsterfest is returning to Saba in Dublin this September. Almost a year on, I still think about the delicious meal I had as part of the festival last year and it was so good that I included it in my Best of 2014! Running from Monday 14th to Sunday 27th September, diners can enjoy Kilkeel Harbour’s finest lobster, rope mussels from Roaring Bay, oysters from Carlingford Lough and many more fresh tastes of the sea.


Festival specials include Steamed Whole Lobster with Thai herbs served with pineapple fried rice (€25.95) and Goong Mongkorn Sam Rod Stir Fried Whole Lobster with triple flavoured chilli sauce served with fried rice (€25.95). As well as this, there will be cocktail and craft beer pairings.
