Our customisable dining experience has plenty of options to choose from in each course, and the choice of including or excluding some dishes.

Host an inspiring after dinner speaker

Our beautiful event space is the perfect backdrop for an inspiring speaker. While we host many awards events, our suites have excellent conference capacity. The black tie events at the end of the conference have regularly included a brilliant ending speech from some influential characters and celebrity guest appearances from Ireland and abroad.

As the gala dinner draws to an ending, the annual awards are handed out and the after dinner speaker has spoken. Many events finish with light entertainment from a band or dj. Finding a vibe that fits with the guests experience is vital to create a fun night of dancing and socialising. As the dancing take centre stage, our bars continue to serve drinks until the end of the event.
