Thank you!

The Conyngham Family would like to thank the local community and customers for their continuing support during the Covid-19 pandemic. We are delighted to be re-opened with our Outdoor Dining and Activities including a Food Truck, Bar & Taqueria in the Castle Courtyard as well as our Walking Trails. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the first Slane gig with Thin Lizzy in 1981 and we look forward to keeping that memory alive. Come see what we're working on!

Outdoor Dining

The Courtyard at Slane Castle is transformed into a select cocktail and eats venue under generous marquee covering. Think relaxed, casual and fun times with friends and family, while music fills the air. That’s complemented by a casual Taqueria dining experience – Mexican tacos with a very special Roots at Slane twist. Sit back and enjoy The Courtyard experience.

Open: Friday - Sunday 4pm-11pm (last sitting 8.30pm) from 2nd July.

Our Food Truck is open for takeaway refreshments and snacks every Thursday - Sunday from 10am - 4.00pm. The grounds of Slane Castle will open at 10am with gates closing at 4.30pm sharp.

Only food and beverages purchased on site will be allowed to be consumed in the Food Truck and public areas.

Due to challenges of operating in the new environment within the constraints of a historic building, Browne’s Bar and The Gandon Room will remain closed.

Historical Tours & New Summer Walking Trail

We will also reopen our historical tours when restrictions allow, which can be booked through this website by clicking the tours button on the homepage. Tickets will be required for both the tour and entry to the grounds. Further details and information will be released soon.

We are also working on plans for a new Summer Walking Trail in the Concert field where family picnics will be allowed. We hope to combine the stunning scenery of the castle grounds and River Boyne with the memories of past concerts which we have had over the past 40 years at Slane Castle.

We look forward to welcoming you back to the Slane Castle Estate. Should you have any queries or questions, please email
