Seasonal Sundays at Slane Castle- Sunday lunch and storytelling

Slane Castle has announced a superb new option for Sunday lunch on the last Sunday of every month. It’s Seasonal Sundays at Slane Castle taking place in the classic Gandon Room. Seasonal Sundays is a delicious two course seasonal buffet lunch followed by a storytelling session. It’s all about local flavours – the menu is based around seasonal ingredients sourced nearby and at Rock Farm, their own organic farm, while the after lunch tales will also have a decidedly local resonance too.
