At Finnebrogue Woods we have curated a truly unique dining experience that celebrates local seasonal produce cooked over fire, in a wonderfully atmospheric woodland setting. Each feast will be expertly crafted by a guest chef in collaboration with our very own Wild Chef Dan. As one of our 36 guests, you will enjoy the cosy ambience of our Scandinavian Tipi whilst being able to observe the chefs at work over the fire, before tucking into the resulting deliciousness.
Each guest chef will create a set menu from various local, in season produce – whether from the lake, field or woods of Finnebrogue, or perhaps some fresh seafood from Strangford Lough.
To launch our new Finnebrogue Feasts, we are thrilled to welcome renowned local Chef Paul Cunningham (Great British Menu) to the woods on Saturday 29th January.
Paul is a very talented and widely respected chef who has been using foraged ingredients in his dishes from his earliest days in the kitchen. It is now the backbone of his cooking style. Co. Down provides a rich larder; including our very own Finnebrogue Woods grass fed dexter beef, freshly landed fish from nearby Ardglass and a host of wild foraged foods.
Our Finnebrogue Feasts guarantee a warm welcome by the fire, a seasonal foraged tipple and an enchanting 7 course feast. Every dish will be packed full of fresh and fragrant flavours. Listen to the crackling of the open fire, look up at the stars in the clear night sky and enjoy an array of taste sensations in this truly unique woodland dining experience!
