The brand-new Thrive Festival is set to take place March 30 – 31 in Dublin’s iconic Convention Centre.

Discover how to do sustainable fashion with Taz Kelleher or to declutter one’s home and closet with Breda Stack. Laura Thomas PHD will be discussing how to eat intuitively and health blog The Gut Stuff will be teaching lessons on fermenting at home.
Learn to sleep better with Tom Coleman or to embrace stress with Alan O’Mara. Aidan Healy will be showing audiences how to unplug and switch off.
Laura Agar Wilson’s will be discussing turning one’s passion to profit. Plus, adventurer Pip Stewart will be talking about what she has learnt from her travels.
There’s also lots of meditation, yoga, pilates and barre classes on offer, as well as a chance to nourish the body with cookery demos by Jasmine Hemsley, Holly White, Indy Power, Jenny Maletese, Fin Ni Fhaolain and Sinead Delahunty.
After classes or workshops, there is the Thrive Marketplace to browse. Whether looking for a new skin care product, sustainable comfortable exercise clothing, the best protein power or delicious tasty snacks, audiences are invited to spend the remainder of their time here.
Created by the team behind premiere food and drink festival Taste of Dublin, Thrive Festival aims to challenge and excite people. Teaching how to think and do things differently in 2019, the festival say attendees will leave happier, healthier and more fulfilled than when they arrived.
