Tis the Season….to start thinking about your Christmas party!
Believe it or not the summer is a very busy time for us with Christmas party enquiries at our city centre venue in Cork. It’s the perfect time of year to plan ahead and beat the rush in September and October.
When it comes to Christmas parties there isn’t really a lot of dates on the calendar to choose from to throw a bash for your work team. Finding the right venue that can cater for your capacity and requirements in Cork makes it even tougher.
To make things easier we have broken it down into some key areas you and your team need to address before booking your venue.
As the saying goes, “Location, location, location”.
Finding a venue with the perfect location is impossible as you can’t please everyone. Choosing the city centre will mean that the party animals can continue the night away in a nearby club or late bar and the early birds can sneak off in a taxi at a decent hour. Being in Cork city will also provide a natural festive atmosphere and give your night out a little something extra.
This seems pretty obvious but finding a venue to cater for your party can be trickier than you may think. Many hotels will boast a very large capacity but at the same time book in a number of Christmas parties all at once which dilutes the uniqueness of your company’s experience and often splits the party very early on. At St. Peter’s Cork we have a capacity of 300 and can catering for sit down meals, dancing and much more with the whole venue dedicated to you and your team to ensure the privacy and fun ye are looking for.
This is where the fun (and sometimes headaches start)! Do you need catering? Drinks (stupid question), DJ, band? Are you planning a sit down meal or finger food? Is there space for all the above plus some space to bust a move or two? Private smoking area?
Now not to toot our own horn too much but, check, check, check, check….and so on 🙂
At St. Peter’s Cork our motto is, our venue is your blank canvas. Last year we had swing dancing parties, sit down medieval banquets, BBQ’s beers and bands, DJ’s and dancing and much more. With the layout and open plan design of our venue we can cater for a huge range of activities and ideas from the party planners and the more creative the better. We work closely with some of the best caterers in Cork who know our venue well, we have a high spec sound system and projection equipment for the technical aspects and we can even roll out the red carpet to give your night the special feel it deserves.
