Mussenden Temple opened its doors for the first time on Friday 5th November, offering exclusive dining experiences. Mussenden Sea Salt, in partnership with National Trust, are pleased to announce that we are offering another opportunity this year to join us on Thursday 09th of December 2021.
We invite you to Join us as we sip from crystal glasses, taste flavoursome slow cooked dishes served on a plate of bamboo and celebrate all things local. The evening marries the sustainable with luxury and pays homage to the fabric of Northern Ireland’s most iconic landmark.
On arrival at Lions Gate, you will be warmly welcomed and guided towards your short walk under the stars through the Downhill Demense to the steps of Mussenden Temple, where your evening experience awaits. Don't worry if the weather is a little wet, or if you prefer not to walk, we will have a private transfer by VIP Chauffer Service on standby to take you to the steps of Mussenden Temple.
As the temple doors open to the sound of the sea below, you are warmly welcomed by Claire from Mussenden Sea Salt and this iconic and incredible building, unspoilt by modern features, offering you an atmospheric and authentic dining experience.
The menu for our Festive themed event will be by Paula McIntyre MBE and the menu is the very essence of the Slow Food movement. Paula is The President of Slow Food NI and her menu will feature a showcase of local food and drink producers from the Taste Causeway Network. The Menu will have a seven-course taster menu and will include a bottle of house wine or soft drinks and cocktails from the Legendary Bushmills distillery and Giants Gin will welcome you all on the evening.

- Please avoid high spikey heels, flats are perfect to walk to the temple, please wear relatively warm clothing. As this is an 17th century building untouched by modern features temperatures can drop. Don't worry though, we do have heating, but as the fabric of the building is stone, therefore we would advise to layer. Layer doesn’t have to mean casual.
- Our menu is prearranged and cannot be altered, the dishes may contain allergies, please contact us before booking. We also cannot guarantee a Nut free environment.
- Toilets are available and whilst they are at the entrance to lions gate, we have provided transport by car to the toilets if you require the toilet midway through your evening.
-Due to potential staining of the stunning flooring, our menu has been fixed and there will be no red wine served, don’t worry though, we are pleased to announce that we will have Bushmills Distillery providing Whiskey Cocktails and another appearance by the new Giants Gin.
-We have COVID-19 safety procedures in place and have good to go standard. The Northern Ireland COVID-19 restrictions are changing, and we will update all guests on the changes as they happen.
