Harvest Home Event Lissadell HouseAt Yeats Tavern, we are delighted at the news of Lissadell House extending their open season until the 19th October, to accommodate the Harvest Home event to be held on the grounds.

The revival of the Harvest Home celebrations will centre on events to be enjoyed by all the family. Originally hosted by Sir Robert Gore Booth as a celebration of the summer harvest, the Cassidy’s of Lissadell House return to tradition. Traditionally, the Harvest Home celebration took place in the  Riding Arena for workers and tenants of the Lissadell Estate, and this year the event will be open to the public.

Speaking on Ocean fm, Eddie Walsh outlines the reasons behind hosting the Harvest Home event as being ‘a way to show appreciation for all the people who helped and supported us over the summer and to showcase the best of the North West and the best of Connacht.’

The day long event will feature a range of cooking demonstrations with celebrity chefs, plenty of food and craft stalls, as well as the opportunity to stroll through the house and gardens.

Our restaurant has also undertake to sponsor the Mussel Competition open to all secondary students. Just submit your Mussel recipe to The judges – our own Damien Davis, and celebrity chefs Joe Shannon and Adrian Martin will select four recipes and invite the finalists to cook their recipes. The winning dish will receive €100 all4one voucher, a Lissadell trophy, a day cooking with celebrity chef Joe Shannon at the Radisson Blu Sligo, while the winning student’s Home Economics teacher will be given a one night stay at the Radisson Blu Sligo + dinner for two in the AA Rosette Award winning restaurant.
