  • Brownes Bar for lunch is lovely! It can be quite full but on the two occasions we got seated quickly. The menu is fairly limited but it’s really nice food and reasonably priced. I’d recommend the fish...  more »

  • Slane Castle is well worth a visit even if you cant afford to stay there as a guest. On the day I was there it was undergoing work and there were very little visitors, add to that it was raining heavy too. The distillery is just across the footpath and you have gift shops there too. If it was a nice day and you had the time there are lovely walk around the ground. The stone work and its condition make Slane Castle stand out among the many ruins I visit. Its a working hotel and restaurant which you can enjoy on your visit. But for photo buffs its not that appealing because you have little room either at the back or on the left hand side to get better angles or quality shots but if its on your to do list get down there soon and make the most of your visit. Most people only get to see it through a haze of alcohol while attending a concert but I was strictly sober on my visit, maybe that it why my visit was a little less enjoyable. Thanks
  • Enjoyed the food and service. Could do with lowering the lighting and some candles on tables would add to the atmosphere.
  • The pathway needs to be covered. They could do with someone to welcome the visitors to the coffee shop / restaurant. Decor lovely very clean.
  • Saw Guns ‘n’ Roses here in 2017 - My first time in Slane - Easier to get in and out of that I thought it would be.
  • Really good. Well worth a visit
