About our classes

At Howth Castle Cookery School, we know the best way to enjoy learning new cooking skills is in a relaxed but focused environment. Here in the historic Georgian kitchen we have the perfect class for all skill levels and interests. Our chefs cook alongside you to help you gain the know-how needed to develop the experience and confidence you are looking for.

We offer classes in cuisine from all around the globe and also feature the wealth of ingredients right here on our doorstep. Whether you wish to focus on a particular Asian cuisine or improve your pastry or baking techniques, our chefs can make it all seem easy.

Our hands-on classes ranging from 2 - 7 hours in duration so you have opportunity to really get to grips with a chosen interest. Everyone puts on their aprons, rolls up their sleeves and under the guidance of our chefs create amazing dishes which are then enjoyed by the group with a glass of wine.

Evening classes last for 2.45 hours and involve 2 hour hands on cooking followed by the opportunity to enjoy the meal either around the long cooks table or for larger classes, in the Butler's Room. Prices from €90.

Morning classes are 4:30 hours provide the opportunity for a more comprehensive look at specific techniques or particular styles of cooking. Our morning classes feature more hands-on recipes and in-depth teaching. Morning coffee to start and lunch or take home products all included. Prices from €145.

Our Excursion Experiences are a full day class of 6:30 hours and include for example a visit to a brewery, a tour of one of Howth's amazing fishmongers or boat trip to catch fish as part of the morning class. Afterwards its back to the school for lunch and a 2:30 hour hands-on class of carefully selected dishes to complement the morning's knowledge. From €195.

To us, success is all cookery school participants walking away with new knowledge, ability and confidence, having had lots of fun along the way.
