A Unique Corporate Retreat Venue
Cloughjordan House and Cookery School is the ultimate destination for your company’s next team-building day. We are located in the centre of the country, only 90 minutes from Dublin and 40 minutes from Limerick. With us, you can enjoy exclusive use of the entire house, complete privacy and anonymity. Look no further for the ultimate team retreat venue.
Breakaway from the city to reinvigorate your team and spark creativity and innovation in any one of our numerous meeting rooms. If progress indoors is slow, take your think-tank outside and roam freely around our 8-acre grounds to find inspiration amongst the trees and garden.
In the evening, our Argentinian ‘Asado’ opens up as an indoor BBQ and fire-pit venue creating a real ‘round the campfire’ vibe. After a company retreat at Cloughjordan House, your team are guaranteed to be more productive and you’ll find morale boosted.
With so many meeting rooms to choose from, we can offer a great degree of flexibility. From our historic 18th century ballroom to our more intimate meeting spaces, we can accommodate groups of all sizes.
Our ballroom can be set in a number of different layouts: theatre style, classroom, boardroom, and banqueting. We can also facilitate bespoke set ups for a more relaxed breakout session in any of our many workshop spaces.
If that wasn’t enough, you could also take the session outside and discuss your plans in the fresh air under our stretch tent. We offer a unique meeting venue that is perfect for team brainstorming sessions, private board meetings and seminars.
If you’ve reached an impasse in the boardroom, let us help turn your attention away from the task at hand and inspiration might strike.
