Event organisers are always looking for new ways to make corporate meetings and events more interesting and exciting for attendees. In terms of venue selection, cool and unusual seem to be the most popular criteria, and it is better still if the venue chosen reinforces the theme and content of the event.
Dublin is a magnet for corporate events. Here are four amazing venues where organisers can provide a more holistic event experience.
Home of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA), Croke Park is an astonishing place to host meetings and events. The venue is the perfect place to hold team-building events, conduct presentations and entertain clients. Offer exclusive drinks inside the private museum or take them on a roof-top tour with views across Dublin.
The Norman legacy in Ireland is reflected by a historic collection of castles, spread out across the whole country. Many of these now stand in ruins, but a few have been restored to their fully functioning former glory. Luttrellstown Castle is one of these, located just outside Dublin city centre and providing a luxurious private venue. Set in 560 acres of pasture land, the 12-bedroom retreat offers dining facilities for around 100 guests. Event companies in Dublin, such as Davis events agency, or individuals, can hire the venue for unique and special events, from weddings to gala dinners.
SmockAlley is a highly versatile venue offering three locations: the Boys’ School, the Theatre and the Banquet Hall. So whether you are planning a formal meeting, an interactive community event or something more intimate, this venue can meet a variety of needs. It is packed with breath-taking period features, such as the ornate stucco ceiling and stained glass of the Banquet Hall, the original walls of the 1662 construction and the traditional church pews in the Boys’ School. Staging an event here is sure to prove a talking point for many months or years to come.
Situated right in the city centre, St Stephen’s Green Unitarian Church is a ‘listening’ venue offering a unique setting for a range of different events. Although there is no bar, it is an ideal location for those requiring a spacious and traditional venue for meetings where organisers do not need to provide refreshments.
