Slane Castle food truck

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.

Open Thursday to Sunday 10a.m.- 4.30p.m.
No booking required.

The Castle Courtyard Outdoor Bar Experience

This summer The Courtyard is transforming 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. 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 - Sunday 4pm-11pm (last sitting 8.30pm) from 2nd July.
Booking advised (link). Walk in tables available, with limited availability.

Roots @ Slane Castle

Having honed their craft in Dublin’s cafés and restaurants, culinary duo Aisling and Keith 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.
