Thanksgiving Dinner | Ballymaloe House

Thursday 28th November 2019

The first recorded Thanksgiving feast dates back to 1621 and was between the Pilgrims, English US settlers were known as the Plymouth Colony and an American Indian tribe in Plymouth, Massachusetts.  An impressive feast of seasonal bounty was shared and they had plenty to be thankful for, including a 'Great store of wild turkeys'.  

Turkey has remained the most common main dish of a Thanksgiving dinner, to the point where some refer to the holiday as 'Turkey Day'.   It's a celebration, and the perfect excuse, to gather family and friends to share good food, good times and take time out together to give thanks.  It's obvious why it became so popular!

At Ballymaloe House, we have so much to be grateful for, so this year, we are celebrating Thanksgiving on Thursday 28th November with a special all American dinner.  

Start the evening with a seasonal and American themed Garden to Glass cocktail in our conservatory with canapes.  

Before enjoying a 3 course Thanksgiving dinner, autumnal pumpkin soup and hot buffet including traditional turkey and other seasonal hot vegetables and other seasonal treats from our farm and neighbouring producers.  

We are taking the opportunity to highlight, celebrate and give thanks in a very special Ballymaloe way. 

Whether you are booking a table for two or twenty, we look forward to taking you on a tasty traditional Thanksgiving celebration and sharing everything we are grateful for with you. 

This year we are also delighted to feature as one of the best places to have Thanksgiving dinner in Ireland by Aer Lingus.


€75 per person for dinner or €175 per person sharing including bed & breakfast.
