Festive Dining in Cork
At Castlemartyr Resort
This festive season at Castlemartyr Resort, diners indulge in the finest festive cuisine and ambiance with a host of venues from which to choose, each with its own distinctive flavour and environment for the perfect Christmas party in Cork. Allow us to introduce you to your festive dining options:
CANOPY RESTAURANT & BAR
Join the buzz in Canopy, a chic, contemporary and spacious venue which is sympathetically designed to mirror the natural canopy of the mature trees that envelope the space beyond its extensive glass walls. Cuisine in Canopy is also crafted to bring nature to the table with the best of seasonal local ingredients taking centre stage. Dining parties of up to 10 people at Canopy can choose from the a la carte menu or from the 4-course Table d’hôte menu, which is ideal for those wishing to sample their favourite selection from the full spectrum of the menu.
Groups of 10 people and above dine from our festive group menu – view a sample group menu. Canopy also offers a unique Private Dining option for groups called The Chef’s Table.
THE CHEF’S TABLE
As the name suggests, this dining venue is situated with an epic view of the kitchen’s action as it unfolds to produce your spectacular meal. Enjoy this experience in glorious seclusion with your chosen dining company, with space for up to 20 people. The Chef’s Table can be offered completely privately, or you may opt for partial privacy so that the buzz of Canopy’s restaurant floor can still be appreciated.
Discover the exceptional at Terre. As Castlemartyr Resort’s most recent dining addition, Terre is sublimely set in the elegant Manor House and offers a truly unique interactive dining experience over a 3-hour period, in which diners physically move from space to space to fully enjoy courses in the perfect environs. This flow of changing ambiance, one may imagine is almost as impactful as the cuisine however, at Terre, it is the theatre on the plate that holds centre stage. Here, Chef Patron Vincent Crepel creates cuisine that reflects his French origins, that is ignited with Asian flavours expertly reflecting the skills Crepel earned during his time spent working with Andre Chiang in Singapore. Having grown up in the French Pyrenees and trained in the Basque Country, Crepel also worked at the 3 Michelin Star Arzak in San Sebastian, at Hotel deVille Crissier in Switzerland and in Singapore before opening his restaurant in Paris, Porte12 and now Terre. At Terre, diners sample dishes from a remarkable 12-course tasting menu.
GROUP DINING & PRIVATE CHRISTMAS PARTIES
As well as Canopy’s Chef’s Table, Castlemartyr provides a choice of private dining venues.
Private Dining in The Manor House: For a special celebration of distinction, choose to dine in the classical setting of Castlemartyr Resort’s 18th century Manor House. Groups from 10 to 70 can be accommodated in the elegantly decorated event spaces within The Manor House, which also features the magnificent Knights Bar. It is beneath the famous Rococo style Stucco ceiling of Knights Bar, that dinner guests of The Manor House can enjoy the magical setting while partaking in pre-dinner drinks before retiring to the intimacy of their own private dining room.
The Ballroom at Castlemartyr Resort provides an extraordinarily impressive venue for a larger scale festive celebration for up to 200 people. It features a stunning triple height ceiling, unobstructed views and floor to ceiling glass curtain walling which floods the room with natural light for a daytime event and, by night, subtly reflects the twinkling candlelight and ambient lighting theme, which can be tailored for each event. This space is ideally suited to a Corporate Christmas party or an association or club Christmas celebration, and with in-room bar, and plenty of space to dance and mingle, event organisers are guaranteed to keep the party alight with a sophisticated yet relaxed cabaret atmosphere right to the end of their night.
As with all of Castlemartyr Resort’s menus, our Christmas season menus showcase the wealth of wonderful ingredients available on our doorstep in Cork. That local produce is combined with select international flavours to produce delicious dishes and delightful dining experiences.
