Why not plan a fun cookery event for your friends or colleagues?
Why choose a corporate package at Lynda Booth's Dublin Cookery School?
We have the "wow-factor" (so say The Irish Times) - located in a light-filled, converted warehouse, our school's state-of-the-art design sets the tone for an unforgettable away day, team-building session or thank you to your treasured clients.
We have the space to suit your group, whatever its size - our generous 3,000 sq ft space can comfortably hold large groups of up to 60 people for interactive demo classes as well as more intimate hands-on classes of up to 32.
We have the flexibility to meet your needs - with interchangeable meeting rooms, dining areas, demonstration zones and cooking stations, we can set up to suit your specifics.
We can tailor menus for dietary requirements and preferences - each group's menus are custom-designed with the seasons and your requirements in mind.
We have the experience to give you the inside track - our tutors have worked in some of the hottest kitchens in the foodie world, and we continue to work with some of the biggest names in the business.
We can offer extra elements to make your day special - from mixology or wine tastings to classical music recitals, we can go that extra mile for your big day.
We send you away with a token from the day - each individual will receive a specially compiled booklet of all that day's recipes, from starters through to main course, several side dishes and dessert.
We know how to have fun and be inclusive - our classes match the needs of students of every level, but don't just take our word for it:
"A fantastic afternoon was had by all. The class seemed to satisfy both the novices and amateurs in the group. The tips and observations throughout the course were incredibly helpful. We would wholeheartedly recommend it to friends and colleagues."

What kind of corporate package can you choose from at Dublin Cookery School?
The following are some of our most popular offerings, but we can tailor any of these to suit the needs and preferences of your particular group. All options are available in full day, half day or evening options.
WATCH, WINE AND DINE:
A stimulating, satisfying event.
Join our chefs in the demo kitchen and watch an entertaining and educational demonstration of the techniques involved in the preparation of your three course meal of choice. Then discover the secrets to food and wine matching while we put the finishing touches to your meal, which we will serve you in our private dining room.
- This can be offered as a day-time or evening session.
- Alternatively we can include a cocktail-making class.
LOOK, COOK AND LUNCH:
A tutored hands-on experience.
Join our chefs in the demo kitchen and watch an entertaining and educational demonstration of the techniques involved in the preparation of your three course meal of choice. Then move to individual stations in our custom-built hands-on kitchen to recreate the dishes under the attentive guidance of our experienced team. Finally, the session culminates in our private dining room where guests enjoy the fruits of their labour: a three course meal.
- We can quote for a tutored wine tasting as part of the session.
MORNING MEET AND EAT:
A productive and rewarding session.
Conduct your distraction-free morning meeting in our bright meeting room with freshly baked scones and fresh coffee and tea to sustain you; and then reward the work with an entertaining cookery demonstration in our spacious demo kitchen followed by a delicious two or three course lunch in our private dining room.
- This can be offered as a morning session, full day or late afternoon with early dinner.
- Longer sessions can be conducted as hands-on classes.
COME DINE WITH US:
An active, competitive cookery challenge.
Are your team up for it? Things get livelier - and more competitive - in this ultra-active session. Join our chefs in the demo kitchen and watch an entertaining and educational demonstration of the techniques involved in the preparation of your three course meal of choice. Then move to individual stations in our custom-built hands-on kitchen to recreate the dishes under the attentive guidance of our experienced team. The group is then pushed outside their comfort zone and must pull together to deliver a cookery challenge in the time available. This allows great opportunities for improving communication and learning to work as a team under pressure. The winning team is announced at dinner with prizes for the champions.
- We can separate your group into any number of teams to promote inter-departmental communication and relationships.
YOU SHAKE IT, WE MAKE IT:
A short, fun-focussed session to lift the spirits.
The perfect post work interactive gathering to kick start a social night out. Knock off a little early to beat rush hour traffic and join us for a demonstration by our experienced chefs of some inspired party food ideas. Then let us put the finishing touches to your delicious nibbles while you enjoy a cocktail-making session. Finally, retire to our dining room for your own private party.
- If cocktails aren't your thing, we can offer a tutored wine tasting.
