We all know the best spots book out super quick, so don’t get left in a grotty bar with dry turkey sambos and Cliff Richard on the stereo. Let The Bash Co guide you to the seasonal soiree to beat all.

We have hand-picked the best venues and suppliers that you can book directly through our site at no additional fee. And if you’ve been landed with the pressure of booking, we’ve got a little Christmas bonus especially for you. Fancy a free bottle of bubbly? We thought you might! So have a look at our fun and fabulous festive Christmas Party options in Dublin here. You won’t be disappointed.

 

Office Foodies

Tickle the taste buds! For the office foodies, The Old Spot in Ballsbridge has Michelin recommendations under its belt and brings you a Christmas feast not to be missed. A menu including rose veal Bolognese, stuffed squid, Pat Mcloughlin’s dry-aged ribeye steak and good old beer battered fish and chips (not to mention a superb selection of wine, craft beers and bespoke cocktails) will definitely get mouths watering.

The Cool Venue

If you want to team food with one of the hottest venues in town, Nolita in South Great Georges Street has the Big Apple written all over it. From the trendy roof terrace to the top-notch Italian cuisine (we’re talking the ultimate pizza party here) cocktails and drinks gallore it is sure to impress.

Pamper perfection

Got a gaggle of girly girls in your office? Then booking a pre-party beauty pit stop through The Bash Co is a must. Dry & Fly on Wicklow St offers private hire, where you and your colleagues will be treated to a gorgeous blow-dry of your choice while sipping a glass of prosecco or an artisan G&T. This is not a drill ladies, I repeat, this is not a drill! Or why not bring a nail bar into your office? Jenny Wong Nails will tend to everyone’s talons and can even add a sprinkle of festive nail art to complement those snowman earrings.

Something for the office

Some offices want to keep the party in-house. Forget the tin of Roses. The Bash Co has an extra special sweet treat to order in to your workplace. The Delish Melish S’mores Bar comes stocked with amazing handmade marshmallows. Varieties range from peanut butter and dark chocolate and coffee and Jameson to passion fruit and coconut. (And you thought pink or white was a hard choice to make!) The marshmallows are then toasted and placed between handmade chocolate biscuits. Add in some hot chocolate and you’re sure to melt even the toughest boss’ heart this Christmas.

We also love the idea of transforming your workplace into a vintage tea room. After all, Christmas is the best time to indulge in cake. So why not book Socialbee through The Bash Co, who will provide the finest china, tea, scones, sandwiches and cakes and, best of all, they’ll even clean up afterwards. Now that’s some real Christmas magic!

Drink and be merry

For Christmas drinks, we suggest you shun the 12 pubs option for something with a bit more festive fizz. At the top end of the scale, we suggest a Champagne tasting experience in The Cavern on Baggot St. Following a tutored tasting of some of the world’s finest bottles of bubbly, you will be treated to a feast of farmhouse cheese, cured meats, artisan Dublin breads and a delectable Irish seafood platter. And if the party coffers won’t quite stretch to champagne, The Cavern also offers a wine tasting package complete with a cheese and meat board.

These are just some of the options we have to make sure your Christmas party is a big festive hit, so check out The Bash Co and get booking.

Team Day Ideas – Axe Throwing

Team Day Ideas – Axe Throwing

Looking for Team Day Ideas? We have found you your next team building day and no, we’re not sending you to the set of Game of Thrones. Get ready to surprise the work crew with an alternative day out of the office perfecting your axe throwing bullseye.

 

Axe throwing is not as wild and woolly as it sounds. It’s a disciplined activity that demands finesse and focus to do it right. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to embed your axe in a small target with a maximum point scoring bulls eye in the middle.

 

This is a great team day out as it produces surprises that upset the usual hierarchy. You’ll quickly see that the those scoring high will be the ones you least expect to have a hidden Viking within. This completely changes people’s attitudes towards them. The sport is equally suitable for men and women because it’s not about strength – it’s more about timing, concentration and body movement.

 

As well as being a physical workout, it’s a great form of stress relief. The Axe Throwing team have found that people, especially men, are more inclined to chat about personal challenges when they’re outside in nature and participating in an activity like this. It’s also a great way to get outside and away from computer screens.

What does the axe throwing session entail? Firstly you’ll get an introduction to axe throwing with Flying Angel Axes, inc safety, self coaching and technique. Then, a few practice throws so everyone gets the hang of it. Next up, competition time! The team will run a competition to see who the top dogs are in your group which will lead to the might Crowning of the Axe Champion and prize giving ceremony.

 

A private axe throwing session is €30pp for 12 to 24 people and lasts about 90 minutes. It’s in Killruddery House and Gardens in Bray but if you want to arrange another location, don’t be afraid to ask the team.

 

Feeling like you want even more from your day at Kilruddery? Opt for the Viking fire and lunch in the woods. You’ll cook your own campfire quesadillas for lunch or dinner with wild fruit cordial drinks and tea and coffee. The wood activities include edible deadible wildplants activity, viking fire making in teams, kelly kettle/fire tea race, coffee break/biscuits. Its a chance to absorb the woodland light, sounds and feel the calm. It’s then time to learn how to axe throw (same itinerary as above). The event is €55pp and will last 3 to 4 hours depending on the number of people. It’s for 12 to 24 people.
