Seafood – and Guinness – fans will be pleased to hear that a three-month festival, complete with supper clubs, has launched in the Guinness Storehouse.
Seafest is part of Taste the Island campaign by Fáilte Ireland and is a celebration of the renowned relationship between Guinness and Irish seafood (oysters and a pint of the black stuff anyone?). Running from now until November 30, the festival features a host of treats for Storehouse visitors as well as a series of supper clubs.
There are specially-curated seafood dishes on offer in the Storehouse’s 1837 restaurant, including a Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland’s Ancient East showcase dish. On Saturdays, visitors can check out the pop-up oyster shucking station to try Irish oysters and the new Storehouse Seafest Stout.
The Storehouse is also hosting Seafest supper clubs, on one Friday each month, running on 27 September, 11 October and 8 November. Guinness Storehouse Head Chef, Sean Hunter, will be looking after proceedings, while Niall Sabongi of Klaw is on board as a supper club collaborator, He’ll be bringing a pop-up crab shack to the event and serving crab three ways as part of the evening.
There will be an emphasis on seasonal ingredients throughout and dishes will include flame-kissed oysters, garlic drizzled shellfish and more. Expert Guinness beer sommelier Ian Colgan will be on hand to serve beer pairings for each of the dishes.
Supper club tickets are €69.50 per person, and that includes all courses and beer. You can book tickets here .
