THE LOST ART OF A FAMILY GATHERING - Childhood memories from France and Ireland.

Friday 14th September 7pm. Booking Essential | €50pp

Our Executive Chef Alex Petit and Head Chef Shane Deane combine their love of French and Irish food with their childhood memories of memorable family meals while growing up in France and Ireland respectively, to prepare a meal reminiscent of a large family gathering where memories are made.  This intimate evening begins with a drinks reception in the Tower, followed by a five course “family meal” served at a long table, just like large family meals used to be enjoyed - sharing, conversing and celebrating.

Other events we are holding include:

AFTERNOON G&T

Tuesday 11th September 3-5pm | Booking Essential | €20pp

Relax in the beautiful surrounds of the Tower with stunning views overlooking Rosscarbery Bay and enjoy a refreshing West Cork G&T and some tasty treats featuring produce from the very best local artisan producers. This splendid spread encapsulates all that is delicious about West Cork produce – local gin, freshly bakes breads, cheeses, smoked fish, charcuterie and delicate cakes and pastries. Along with a pianist, tinkling the ivories, this is an Afternoon Tea not to be missed!
