Located on a 280 acre farm in Co. Wicklow, we are easy to get to just off the N11 at Ashford and in close proximity to Dublin.
For your private party we can organise a fun, hands on cookery class resulting in wonderful food, lots of laughter and a very memorable occasion. We can also offer outdoor activities including archery, clay pigeon shooting, sheep herding, hill walking, off road driving, quad biking, grass karts, falconry, Irish games, foodie quizzes & wine tasting.
Ballyknocken House is Home to TV Chef and food writer Catherine Fulvio therefore we are renowned for our Italian classes but can also offer numerous other popular themes.
We pride ourselves on using the freshest of ingredients straight from our vegetable and herb gardens, which our guests are welcome to visit during their stay.
Choose from a variety of cookery packages including:
Cookery Master Class, Wedding Favours Class, Chocolate & Bubbly Workshop, Sweet Treats Cookery Class. And our newly added Afternoon Tea & Farmers Hens packages
We also offer the option to make your hen party extra special by including a choice optional extra such as Lunch, Fun Blind Wine Tasting, Outdoor Activities and Gifts & Prizes.
And for very late night fun why not continue the entertainment in Wicklow town, located just 10 minutes away with a selection of bars & night clubs, group transport can also be easily arranged.
