Want something different? Let’s have a very tasteful hen party at Ballyknocken. We offer unique and memorable hands-on experiences, tailor-made for you and because you are booking our venue privately for your group, it’s also an intimate location, giving you great scope to catch up with friends and family, whilst at the same time, having a party!
Start in the kitchen with fun and flavour as you learn how to prepare your own delicious lunch or dinner which you then get to enjoy together or choose from one of our other fantastic fun hen party offerings.
We have the perfect ingredients for your unique hen 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 farm outdoor activities including sheep herding and hill walking or what about some candle making? We can cater for parties right up to 48 people.
How could it get any better? How about a luxurious farmhouse sleepover for up to 21 guests?

“Ciara and the whole group had a wonderful time on Saturday. Thank you so much to all your efforts in the run up to the event and the staff on the day were very accommodating. Catherine was so energetic and we made such great memories. Ballyknocken is a truly stunning place. Ciara loved it so much that she wants to return with her mum some day! Thanks again for all your help in organising such a large group”.
