Birthday & Hen Parties


Why not plan a fun cookery event for your friends and family?

Choose a group cookery 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 evening with friends and family.

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.

We have the flexibility to meet your needs – we can set up to suit your specific requirements.  Just let us know how we can tailor the evening to suit your group.

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.

Cooking Hen Parties


At Dublin Cookery School we host fantastic tailored hen party evenings, which combine fun and interactive demonstrations, with some hands-on cookery and a wonderful meal. Avoid the push and shove of the city centre bars and clubs and let us provide the ideal venue for a really unforgettable and unique hen’s night out. This is a perfect way for everyone to get to know the bridal party. Start your celebrations on arrival with prosecco and canapés. Join our team in the demo kitchen for a fun and interactive demonstration before moving in to the hands-on area where you’ll get to recreate your menu under the expert guidance of our chefs. Finally, retire to the dining room to enjoy your meal and continue the party. We can tailor your evening to suit your requirements and can ensure you a completely fun and interactive night out.


Cooking Birthday Parties


What better way to celebrate a memorable birthday party. Tailoring an evening to suit your needs entirely, choose from a range of culinary styles for groups as intimate as 12 or bigger gatherings of up to 60. Kick off your party on arrival with prosecco and canapés. Our chefs will then take you through a demonstration of your chosen recipes before we move you to the hands-on area where you’ll get to recreate your menu. Finally, enjoy your celebration meal in our dining room and continue the fun. Evenings can also be Demo & Dine or Dine only, allowing you to sit back and relax while our chefs do all the work. Equally invite some of your guests along to enjoy the hands-on experience and rustle up the rest of the party to arrive later to dine along with you.  An interactive and unique way to celebrate your special day. We’ll bake your birthday cake – just let us know your preferred flavour!
