The Irish Section of the Nutrition Society "exists to arrange research meetings easily accessible to Irish members and to provide a forum for nutrition education and research in Ireland".

The Irish Section runs two meetings each year, which are easily accessible to its members. The Annual meeting is the largest of the Irish meetings, and it is normally held in mid-June at different venues.
A unique feature of the Irish Section is its annual Postgraduate Meeting, which is usually held in February each year. Fundraising, organisation and chairing of the meeting, which includes a 1-day symposium plus generic skills workshops, is undertaken by research students from the host institution which alternates each year.
