Mussenden Unwind

Event Information

In celebration of the Spring equinox, Claire from Mussenden Sea Salt has teamed up with Clare McQuillan from Feasting on Weeds.

Upon your arrival at Downhill beach, you will be warmly welcomed by Claire from Mussenden Sea Salt, who will introduce you to the wild cooking area at Downhill beach nestled under the magnificent Mussenden Temple.

Once settled with a locally produced warm drink (hot chocolate, tea or coffee) Clare from Feasting on Weeds, the queen of all things foraging, will guide you on your foraging walk through Downhill Forest.

When you return to the beach location, a delicious feast will have prepared for you with a menu featuring delicious local fresh produce.

Make the most of the picturesque setting as you listen to the rhythmic sound of the crashing waves, feel the sand between your feet and watch the sun set.

The luxury designed dining area embraces all the elements of the North Coast whilst offering a luxurious touch to outside dining, making it the perfect way to unwind in the natural elements after a busy week.

After you finish your evening meal, embrace all things sea and salt and take a moonlit plunge into the Wild Atlantic Ocean immersing your body and awakening your senses.

Finish off the evening in a cosy dry robe beneath the roaring flames of the fire to mark the end of Winter and the beginning of the Spring equinox under the stars.

This event is part of the Slow Food Causeway launch programme funded by Tourism NI in partnership with Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.


Event Organiser

Taste Causeway is an accredited Slow Food destination, one of only a handful of destinations in Ireland to be awarded the accolade by the global Slow Food Movement. To launch and celebrate this prestigious award Taste Causeway are running a programme of events, dining experiences, tours and special menus.   Slow Food stands for Good, Clean and Fair food.  Slow Food was initially founded by a group of activists in Italy during the 1980s with the aim of defending regional traditions, good food, gastronomic pleasure and a slow pace of life. Slow Food has grown into a global movement involving millions of people, in over 150 countries that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to the community and the environment.   Slow Food aims to reinvigorate people’s interest in the food they eat, where it comes from and how our food choices affect the world around us. Recognising the importance of our local food traditions and the years of accrued knowledge and culture that accompanies this, Slow Food promotes true enjoyment of good food, and food production systems that provide good, clean and fair food for everyone.
