Allta have finally let the cat out of the bag! After weeks of planning and rumours galore , Allta Summer House has at long last been announced for Slane Castle.

An announcement for Slane usually follows with the name of one of the planets biggest rock gods but fear not, this reveal is far more exciting. Dublin Social has raved about Allta since its opening in 2019, with brilliant chefs including Hugh Higgins, Kevin Burke and Niall Davidson bringing the creative flair. Saturday June 26th will see the launch of Summer House, a convivial dining experience sticking to the Allta tradition of using sustainable Irish ingredients and supporting the most skilled farmers, fishermen and foragers in the country. All of this situated in the picturesque Boat House Field on the banks of the River Boyne.

Niall told Dublin Social, “We have a big staff and not a lot of space for outdoor dining, so the idea was to come up with something great for the summer. I met Alex from Slane Castle a few years ago while working in London and said I would reach out to him with a crazy idea. With no music in the castle this year, that idea grew rapidly and now Summer House will be located in Boat House Field at Slane. Boat House Field is where the hospitality area would be during the Slane Castle gigs, so it’s great to think we are putting on our event where Bowie, Freddie and Jagger have all had their after parties!”

A set menu is priced at €95pp euro and will be cooked over open fire and is made for sharing with bookings only available for groups of 4-6 due to the construction of the tables. Summer House will be located under a large tented structure and guests are encouraged to arrive early or stay late to enjoy drinks at the bar. Expect cocktails and the usual great Allta wine list as well as a full bar. Accommodation is also available with some rooms available in the castle in from a couple of weeks time as well as glamping, at Rock Farm on the Slane Estate. There is also a discounted VIP taxi service.

This past year has seen Allta sell over 10,00 of their at-home kits, The Allta Box, as well as starting a Saturday bakery pop-up that had people queing for over an hour to get their hands on one of their excellent doughnuts.
