Outdoor Dining at Slane Castle

This summer at Slane Castle we have several delicious outdoor dining options. Enjoy outstanding natural beauty and birdsong along with your refreshments.


Food Truck - The Silver Fox @ Slane Castle

This gleaming silver beauty is located just outside the Castle Courtyard in the cooling shade of graceful trees. Run by culinary duo Keith Coleman and Aisling McHugh of the Roots Project, it’s funky, fun and seriously satisfying. Enjoy excellent coffee and a selection of freshly made savoury and sweet treats to enjoy at a picnic table, while taking in the view. The focus is on local and seasonal produce - Keith’s sausage rolls using organic rare breed pork from Rock Farm are a special treat. As well as that, Four legged friends are welcome too…..(must be on leads!)

Open Weds to Sunday's from 10a.m to 4p.m.
No booking required.

The Courtyard at Slane Castle

This summer The Courtyard is transforming into a cocktail bar and taqueria serving tacos and small plates under generous marquee covering. Think relaxed, casual and fun times with friends and family, while music fills the air. Award winning bartender Gillian Boyle has developed a special cocktail and drinks menu. 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 & Saturday's from 4pm to 11pm (last sitting 8pm) and Sunday's from 2pm to 8pm (last sitting 6pm)

Roots @ Slane Castle

Having honed their craft in Dublin’s cafés and restaurants, culinary duo Keith Coleman and Aisling McHugh have put down roots here in the Boyne Valley and are now steering the ship with all things related to food and beverage at Slane Castle Estate. Over the years, the couple have fostered a strong ethos of working with local Irish suppliers to provide the very best in season produce for their events while also building strong connections with prospective wedding couples to create a bespoke offering that reflects their own food story.

allta summerhouse

Iconic allta Wine Bar from Dublin are relocating for the summer to Slane Castle with their brand-new convivial dining experience. This a high-class dining option, a set menu cooked over an open fire and made for sharing. The location is in a beautiful tented structure, in The Boat House Field, near the Castle. Expect cocktails and a great wine list as well as a full bar. Make a night of it by staying at either Slane Castle itself (limited room availability) or glamping at Rock Farm. The advice is to dress for the party but leave the high heels at home.
