Wilde Dining x Enniskillen Castle

We are delighted to bring to you our latest dining experience in Ireland’s only island town, Enniskillen.

The location of our next feast over fire experience is the magical 16th century Enniskillen Castle.

Nestled on the tranquil shores of Lough Erne, Enniskillen Castle stands as an enduring symbol of County Fermanagh’s rich and complex history. This formidable fortress, with its historic significance, stunning architecture, and the wealth of stories it holds, offers visitors a unique opportunity to delve into the past and explore the cultural heritage of Northern Ireland.

In association with the Northern Ireland Science Festival Archaeologist Cormac McSparron will join the Wilde Dining, “Fire” themed event, on Friday 16th February, discussing ancient food, cooking and feasting. Hear what our ancient ancestors ate, how they prepared their meals and what their dining customs were like, based on evidence from archaeological sites, excavations and historical sources.
