During the lead-up to Christmas, we love nothing more than a catch-up with good friends over a delicious festive feast. That’s why we couldn’t be more excited to hear about Christmas in the Courtyard!

If you’re looking for something a little bit different this festive season, or if you’re tired of the same, drab office Christmas parties year after year, then we’ve got just the experience for you! This Christmas season you can enjoy a decadent six-course meal inside a spectacular all-glass mansion, sitting within the historic courtyard of the beautiful Royal Hospital Kilmainham.

Construction on this fabulous centrepiece started last week – the first structure of its kind to ever be used in Dublin!

What exactly will your evening entail though? Upon arrival, diners will be greeted with champagne and spiced apple cider, as the magical Christmas setting sparkles around them. Guests will be put in the party mood from the get-go, with the lively tempo of bands The Victory Dolls and The Runaways, before being served a Christmas dinner like you’ve never tasted.

The six-course dining experience, provided by renowned Michelin starred chef Dani Barry, will celebrate the best of Irish produce, including Goatsbridge Trout, fresh Irish vegetables and a Christmas Pudding Nitrogen Ice Cream. Not forgetting, each course has been meticulously paired with fine wines selected by one of Ireland’s foremost sommeliers, Brigid O’Hora.

As diners enjoy this epic Christmas feast, they will be entertained by the resident piano man, playing all of your favourite festive classics.

All of this and more will be enjoyed under the magical backdrop of the grand courtyard of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, which can be viewed through the floor-to-ceiling glass panels. With its timeless cobbled courtyard, stone-cut cloisters, historic clock tower and beautiful Juliet balconies, this is truly one of the most unique and mesmerising settings in Ireland.

This magical Christmas party experience runs from November 24th until December 18th. Let the garlands and ribbons, twinkling lights and towering Christmas trees in the glistening glass pavilion transport you to the most magical, dreamy Christmas setting, under beautiful starry skies.

Premium dates for corporate, large and small group bookings are available, with prices from €45.00 per person for a truly spectacular treat this Christmas. See ChristmasintheCourtyard.ie to purchase tickets and for more information.
