We did a thorough trawl through Bloom to weed out – pardon the pun – its hidden gems.

From 20 pounds of pork to a hottie with a body, we found there's more to Bloom than meets the eye. 

Here they are:

Nobó dairy-free delights 

You know Nobó for their ice cream. But did you know they did smoothie bowls, cookie sambos and ice pops – all dairy and gluten free and tasty as fuck? 

We tried a berry smoothie bowl, a mango and passion fruit pop and a salted caramel scoop, and they hit the spot perfectly. 

'Cos hot damn that's a scorcher out there.

Tarzan

Nope, you're not seeing things. This is the man of your dreams.

The winning Bloom garden was Tarzan-inspired so they hauled this fella out for the day for selfies and general adorableness.

Mini music festival

Couldn't make it for Forbidden Fruit? Fear not, because 'youbloomDublin', the music and entertainment festival, have set up stage in Bloom's Blue Zone.

It's GORGE, and while it's not exactly choc-full of household names, it's perfect for vibe-setting over the weekend. 

Sun, bean bags, hammocks, BBQ and beer all in one beaut open area. Pretty cute.

A heavenly hog roasht

I did a double take when I laid my eyes on this beauty.

Adare Farms suckling pork menu, from baps to wraps to full blown dinners with stuffing and cider gravy – all with slow smoked pork.

STUNN-ING.

The atmosphere was great, and the crowds were real. 

So make sure to seek out these hidden gems when you're popping Bloom over the weekend, and get off the beaten track a bit...
