Party Catering FAQ's

How much does party catering cost?
Party catering costs will be a large part of your overall event budget. BBQ's start at €18pp depending on final numbers and the menu you have selected, and Dinner Banquets at €60pp, again depending on the menu choice and numbers. We do have a minimum charge of €2000 per day plus VAT and this does not include additional services, drinks or equipment. The more information you can give us the more we can help you get great value for money whilst ensuring you have the best day possible.
Can I have any menu I want?
We have catered for all sorts of special food styles, menus and themes over the years, Vegan, Vegetarian, Hawaiian, Thai, French, Rastafarian, Kosher, Traditional Irish, you name it we have done it!! We can help you theme your day perfectly in exact accordance with your wishes. Just let us know and we’ll do our utmost to help.
How far in advance do I need to book?
The short answer is that its NEVER too early to book. Good quality venues and, of course, catering companies, do get booked years in advance and especially in the summer months. Please do get in touch as soon as you have an approximate date and venue in mind.
Do you provide marquees and furniture?
Yes we do. Our Marquee and event catering business has long term established relationships with all major equipment suppliers so we can provide anything you may need for your perfect event.
Is there a minimum charge or number you cater for?
There is no exact answer to this except to say that our MINIMUM charge is €2000 per day plus VAT. Each event we do is very different and needs all vary, we do have regular clients we cater for at less than the minimum charge as they provide regular business for us. As a guideline our business is not suited to small events or dinner parties for less than 50 guests as the costs per head would be uneconomic for us both. The best option is to contact us and we will get back to you answering any questions you may have.
Do you provide a bar and drinks service?
Yes we do, just let your catering planner know exactly what you require and we will arrange all for you. From satellite bars in various locations to specialised champagne or themed bars with your choice of drinks stocked we can help.
