On Friday, October 4, historical Westport House will open its doors to host a Special “Taste the Island Harvest Banquet’ in association with Fáilte Ireland, with pre-dinner drinks from 7pm followed by a banquet with wine pairings at 8pm.
The Harvest Banquet is set to be a superb evening with a truly outstanding menu celebrating all that’s great and good in local and seasonal food and drink.

Following the delicious starters guests will cleanse their palates with a Blackcurrant Sorbet.
