A Samhain feast to remember.

Jordan Bailey and Majken Bech-Bailey, the dynamic duo behind 2-Michelin star restaurant Aimsir, are hosting a dining experience like no other in Slane Castle towards the end of October.

Aimsir is temporarily closed, but Jordan and Majken haven’t taken their foot off the gas, launching their unique hospitality and events consultancy, Bech-Bailey.

Across four consecutive nights, between the 26th and 29th October, the husband and wife pairing will put together a Samhain inspired tasting menu, complete with nine courses, featuring the very best of Irish produce from the grounds of the castle, the Rock Farm, and the wider Boyne Valley.

Jordan will be behind the menu, creating a Samhain feast that is to be shared amongst the guests, which will include a traditional centrepiece of pork cooked over fire, glazed with Slane Irish Whiskey.

Majken on the other hand will be in charge of setting the right ambience, sprinkling her magic on every aspect of each diner’s experience, from the welcome drink to the dinner’s grand neo-Gothic ballroom setting at the castle, decorated with seasonal elements foraged from the grounds.

There are still some tickets available for three of the four evenings – you can book your place here.

Tickets for the dining experience alone cost €135, and guests can opt for a wine pairing for €75pp, or one of Majken’s exceptional non-alcoholic pairings for €55.

Guests can also opt to stay on the grounds for the ultimate getaway; you can check out the full price list for this on the Slane Castle website.
