On November 15th Frybrook House, the iconic Georgian mansion located in the historic town of Boyle, Co. Roscommon will officially re open it's doors once more to the public as part of the Taste of Island Festival to host a Georgian Long Table Dinner.

Frybook House was built in 1753 for a Henry Fry who had moved to the town from Co. Offaly at the behest of the Earl of Kingston to establish a weaving business. Originally the family came from Somerset and a decedent from same established the famous chocolate manufacturing business which bore the family name Fry's Chocolates. The family were held in high regard by the local community for their generosity and sharing of food produced on their lands.

On this very special evening in November inspired by the Taste The Island festival, the proud new owners of this much loved house will officially open it's doors following many years of closure to welcome the local community and general public to a magnificent dinner reminiscent of the Georgian period. The menu will be a true reflection of the region and era, with all seasonal produce sourced locally.

The host's of the dinner will eat with their guests, share the rich history of the house and how food reflected the culture of the time.

A wonderful way to celebrate the rebirth of this much loved historic home and celebrate the Fry families highly regarded hospitality.

There may even be some Fry's chocolate to sample!
