What Our Customers Say

‘We organised afternoon and evening corporate team building events at Ballyknocken for a group of 23 people. The event was a huge success and we received very positive feedback from everyone who attended, there were a number of things that made it a special day for us: seamless organisation (including facilitating a number of challenging dietary requirements); great organisation on the day; great flexibility (due to great weather the team set a table for us outside); very friendly and attentive Ballyknocken team. We would have no hesitation in recommending Ballyknocken for corporate or individual events and hope to get back again ourselves soon!’- Klara AIRBNB


We had a fantastic day at Ballyknocken and the ‘ready stead cook challenge’ was a brilliant team building event and everyone rose to the challenge. The organizer was a pleasure to deal with and made organizing the event a dream. The video was a lovely touch and a great memento of the day. Thanks so much to everyone in Ballyknocken especially Debbie, Catherine and Daniel.- Jenny Ald De


Thanks so much for a great day last Friday week, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and went home stuffed to the gills!  I think the lads surprised themselves with what they achieved and there were texts flying around all weekend saying what was being cooked for dinner, etc. using their new found skills.  Everything went along very smoothly, even if we did run over time with our meeting but it seems we are very fast cooks so we caught up soon enough.  It was lovely to meet you and grade my paper Catherine and we felt very special having the whole place to ourselves.  Pat was great to work with too and we picked up lots of tips and tricks from him.- Linda : Eurofound

Just wanted to convey to Pat, Daniel, Catherine and especially you our genuine thanks for a fantastic fun-filled afternoon with some great Italian cooking tips!  You were such a complete pleasure to arrange our event with so thank you so much. We are definitely considering our Summer BBQ in Ballyknocken next year!– Mo Hayes Solicitors


The JDE Ireland team thoroughly enjoyed their afternoon and evening in Ballyknocken Cookery School. Our chef and mentor Patrick was excellent at teaching us some of the finer arts of cooking and facilitating our group in a fun & inclusive way. It was a really enjoyable team-building event – it wasn’t too strenuous, everybody got stuck in and having a competitive element when we were divided into two teams meant there was good banter among the team. It was particularly enjoyable to sit down as a team at the end of the session and enjoy the meal we cooked together along with a glass of wine. Debbie the Sales & Events Manager was a pleasure to deal with in setting up the event. All in all I would highly recommend a class in Ballyknocken Cookery School as a team or corporate event.- Ciaran JDE


The meeting room was a lovely change to a corporate setting and very relaxing, with plenty of freshly baked cakes to keep us going throughout the day.  A big thank you to Sharon and yourself who were at hand for anything we needed. We all really enjoyed the cookery class and Pat was great.  We all learnt something new and have now got our sights on doing the Italian course in the future.- Lynn, Microsoft
