Allta Launch Summer House In Slane

We've been waiting impatiently for the return of Niall Davidson's Allta, and now we know where to find them for the next couple of months. They're popping up in Slane Castle with "Allta Summer House", in a field on the banks of the river Boyne from next Saturday, 26th June.



They're calling it "a convivial dining experience cooked over fire", allowing you to "reconnect with those you have missed over dinner, drinks and music", and they'll be celebrating the Boyne Valley's producers, farmers, fishermen and foragers. Their set menu, costing €95, will be available from Thursday - Sunday.



Tables are for four, five or six people, and they've even organised a "VIP taxi service" which will work out at €20-30 a head for transportation there and back to Dublin, depending on how many of you there are and where you're coming from. There's also accommodation on site at Rock Farm, and additional rooms will be available in the castle from early July if you feel like going all out.



The menu is still TBC but here's the sample they've released (vegetarian option available on request).
