Choosing a Christmas Party Venue

It may feel like only last week you were nursing your sunburn but believe it or not, it’s time to mention the C-word already! While you can leave your shopping and wrapping until the last minute, one thing you need to plan well in advance is your work Christmas party. This year, Cahernane are offering exclusive use of our gorgeous hotel and function spaces and are offering some fantastic Christmas party packages. Here are some things to consider before booking your Christmas party:

Plan Early

Don’t leave it until you hear the first Christmas carol on the radio, book your Christmas party as early as possible. This is even more important when you have a specific venue in mind or are hoping for the exclusive use of a hotel or property. Availability is always low around the festive season so book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.


Of course, one of the first thing to check with a venue is its capacity. Does the property have the facilities to cater for and accommodate your entire party? Would you like to stay over or are you hoping for a dinner dance package? For example, Cahernane can offer accommodation in 48 spacious guest rooms and we can cater for a much larger crowd.


Have you set a price limit per head for your Christmas party? Does this include accommodation, catering and perhaps an open bar? It’s important to factor these things into your budget and check with your venue exactly what is included before you sign on the dotted line. Ideally, choosing a venue with high standards but a competitive price point is a good balance.


You need to consider the location of the venue you are hoping to book. A luxury boutique hotel like Cahernane may not be suitable for every party as it is slightly off the beaten track – but for those are willing to travel it’s so very worth it. Factor in costs of accommodation, entertainment and transport while considering your venue.

Venue Restrictions

It’s also important to check what your venue allows and what it doesn’t. Would you like a band or DJ of your choosing and is that allowed by the venue? What’s the ‘door’ and last drinks policy at the bar? Do you need a sound system for speeches? Does the atmosphere of the venue fit with the vibe you are trying to create for your Christmas party? Don’t let the details slip by and you can be sure your party runs smoothly from start to finish.

This year choose a unique festive venue for your work party. Cahernane House Hotel are offering fantastic exclusive use packages this year which include use of the entire house and grounds, giving you and your guests complete privacy.
