Welcome to our October at Grey’s Lane Bistro!
So, Autumn is definitely here, no Indian summer for us this year but a blustery September instead…. Ah well, other parts of the world have had a really hard time so let’s count our blessings…
The 11th Dingle Food Festival just gone by was once again a very successful one: what great stalls, friendly atmosphere and fantastic music!!!…
Dingle Dinners book launch
Trevis Gleason’s most recent book Dingle Dinners, was launched during the festival, but beforehand all the local chefs whose recipes feature in Trevis’s book got together at the Bistro to sign their pages on 100 copies, a rare enough sight…
Dingle Dinners is available to buy at the Bistro for €25.00
A few things have changed at the Bistro, as you might have noticed our new tables or the way we have re-arranged them, making the centre part of the main room a much cosier space to sit in.
Bit by bit we have also been working on the wall decoration with the help of Emer Antar, who did such amazing work on the front last winter.
These few changes mean that we are now able to accommodate much larger groups, we reckon up to around 90 people quite comfortably.
We have our first big event, a wedding, taking place on Friday the 20th of October, and we’re really excited about it…. so looking forward to making the place look even more fabulous for the big day!!!!….
As the tourist season slows down we are now open from 10am to 4pm Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays for breakfast, lunch and coffee, and on Fridays and Saturdays from 10.00am to 8.30pm also serving early evening and evening meals. We are closed on Sundays and Mondays.
Still plenty of festivals to look forward on the Dingle Peninsula. The Dingle Folk Fest takes place this weekend from Friday 13th to Sunday 15th October.
We expect our usual numbers of visitors towards the end of the month during the mid-term break and Halloween from the 27th of October to the 6th of November. We will then be open for more evenings for early evening and evening meals.
Ich bin ein Berliner
One more thing I’d like to mention this month is the opening of a new route from Kerry Airport to Berlin on the 29th of October. This is fantastic news for us, as it means a potential 9 million visitors from the Berlin area (not sure if we can accommodate all in one go!!!). It is also such an easy way to reach one of the most vibrant European cities from Kerry. Can’t wait to go there myself…
See you soon…
Wishing you all a good month of October! Enjoy the longer evenings by the fire and don’t mind that stormy weather… See you soon!
