A Taste of Mussenden
An Exclusive and luxury dining experience inside Northern Irelands most iconic Building. The Sunsets and views make this the most authentic and exclusive dining experience.
As you arrive to the entrance of Mussenden Temple and Downhill Demesne, you stop for a moment, taking in the stunning landscape, rugged cliffs and just to the right, a glimpse of the sparkling sea. Time is already slipping away in the sights and sounds of this area or Outstanding Natural Beauty.
As you make your way through Lions Gate, you see Downhill Castle, just above your designated parking area in the carpark, there is nowhere as spectacular as this stunning location. As you make your way through the estate by our VIP Chauffeur car, or maybe you are walking under the stars or guided by the evening sun, there is no weather or way that can take away from this amazing short journey to Mussenden Temple, even a moody sky at Mussenden is breath-taking. The amazing sights, sounds and the taste of the sea air on your lips, the world stops for a moment in the magic of this mesmerising landscape.
Arriving at the steps of Mussenden Temple, you feel that you are experiencing solitude at this magnificent monument, a tailored made experience, going behind the doors of the temple, only the few experiences. As the temple doors open to the sound of the sea below, you are warmly welcomed by Claire from Mussenden Sea Salt. A local food producer, with a deep connection to this landmark and the landscape. As we sip from crystal glasses and dine from compostable plates, we hear the fascinating story of how this temple was built by Ian from the National Trust.
Once inside, you really take a step back in time, as this iconic and incredible building is unspoilt by modern features. One of the reasons why we don’t post a lot of photos of our experiences, is that there is nothing more magical than stepping inside this stunning location. It takes your breath away, and what makes these dining experiences a little more special is that with each ticket sold, a percentage of your ticket is helping to preserve this iconic landmark.
