Corporate & Private Classes


Our packages are a brilliant opportunity to try something a little different, learn a new skill, and have fun sharing an amazing new experience with your workmates and colleagues.

For a team-building event in Howth Castle Cookery School, group members roll up their sleeves and work together to get the food prepared under the guidance of our Chefs. Our bespoke corporate class offerings are designed together with each client to ensure that they get the best opportunity to learn, relax and have fun working in teams. To wrap up each 'Hands On' class everyone sits down with a glass of wine in our stunning, recently refurbished, Butler's Room to savour all they have created. Our corporate cooking classes in Dublin are a unique, informative and fun cooking and dining experience. 

We can create bespoke programs to suit your specific needs or you can choose from a range of Group/Corporate menus. Our menus are suitable for all levels and class sizes. We can add on extras such as prosecco and canapes on arrival, a guided tour of Howth Castle, a round of golf, an adventure walk around the estate, falconry, whiskey tasting, or even a morning's fishing charter around Ireland's Eye.

This class starts out early with two hours of fishing out the back of Ireland's Eye in Dublin Bay, having fun doing your best to catch your own lunch and practice your casting and reeling techniques.

We'll show you how to clean out your catch (fingers crossed for some mackerel, season dependent) and prepare it for grilling and we'll also make a delicious and light dessert to finish off a busy day.
