Christmas thyme at GROW HQ

Our award-winning café is transformed into a candle lit, sparkly space of bedecked loveliness that looks a lot like Christmas.

We’re launching our festive menu in our award-winning café, Thursday 23rd November and it will be available every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening until December 16th. The set menu is €40 per person which includes a welcome drink, a 4-course meal and tea or coffee. View our sample Christmas menu.

We would love to be part of your Christmas celebrations and we invite you and yours to   join us at GROW HQ for your Christmas breakfast, lunch or dinner party.

As ever, lunch is available 7 days a week from 12 to 5pm with a festive feel to every meal and guaranteed seasonal produce from our own gardens and local suppliers. Dinner is served from 6pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

We can’t guarantee a white Christmas, a roaring log fire or Michael Buble crooning in the corner, but we do promise fantastic food and friendly attentive service that not even Santa can compete with (and he only works one day a year).

Heavenly Peas

GROW HQ is available for parties of up to 50 and for larger parties you can always book the entire space and rock around the Christmas tree any night of the week. We’re also delighted to offer Christmas cookery demos, ideal for a Christmas party with a HQ twist. A one-of-a-kind experience for colleagues, family or friends to enjoy as part of your night out. Our chefs will inspire you as they teach you and your party how to prepare a delicious, seasonal meal, with all recipes provided to try at home. Only €25 pp.

Private Christmas Dining

We offer an exceptional private dining experience, banquet style, for up to 25 people, upstairs at GROW HQ. The perfect setting for gathering faithful colleagues that are near to us, clients that are dear to us or anyone that has come home for Christmas.

Over the fields we go

Should your group need to be dropped into town afterwards, we can arrange transport for you. Probably not a one horse open sleigh, but we’ll make your spirits bright. Just call us on 051 -584422 to organise.
