On June 15th, Slane Castle is opening an exciting new Restaurant and Bar called The Gandon Room and Browne’s Bar.
The Conyngham Family have appointed the highly respected Catering and Restaurant company Fitzers to operate this new venture. They in turn have appointed Katherine James Budriene as Head Chef. A Boyne Valley native, she has developed a reputation for high quality food and elegant presentation. All ingredients will be fresh and sourced locally and prepared in a way to enhance their natural flavour. There will also be signature dishes inspired by Lord Henry and Lady Iona. The menu will be interesting and affordable.
The Gandon Room is inspired by James Gandon, one of the principal architects of the Castle. He also designed the Customs House and the Four Courts in Dublin. An elegant and dramatic room, it has been transformed into a comfortable and glamorous restaurant with Gandon’s original designs for the Castle on display in the bookcase.
Browne’s Bar is named after the legendary House-Keeper in the Castle, Mary Browne. Designed in an eclectic fashion and featuring Rock n’Roll memorabilia of the many artists who have performed at the Castle over the years. This cosy space featuring leather and tartan seating, also has an unusual snug capable of seating up to 12 people, for a quiet drink.
Browne’s Bar will be open daily with a casual and varied menu featuring items from coffee, home-made pastries and cakes to a New York Reuben sandwich.
The Gandon Room will be open for Dinner Thursday to Saturday and for lunch on Sundays 12 pm to 8 pm.
