Party & Stay

Celebrate Christmas in style at the Maldron Hotel Shandon Cork City Christmas Party Nights!

At a time of year where it would be all too easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle, it’s vitally important that we take time to relax and enjoy time with those who have worked hard for us and with us throughout the year.

Rockin’ Christmas Party Nights

Maldron Hotel Shandon Cork City offers a variety of options for Christmas parties large and small and will be happy to accommodate you and your work colleagues or friends and family in any way we can. Choose from a 3 course gourmet Christmas lunch (from €19.95 per person) or a “rockin” Christmas party night for  €47 per person.

Arrive to a Prosecco & mulled wine reception, and sit back and enjoy a full restaurant dining experience with a delicious 4 course gourmet festive feast. This will be followed by a top night’s entertainment with a live one man band playing all the modern classics. To wrap up the night you can hit the tiles with a DJ, disco and late bar. There will also be fun and games with our spot prizes throughout the night.

It goes without saying that Christmas is a very busy time of the year here at the hotel, so we would encourage you to make your enquiries and bookings as early as possible to avoid disappointment. We have special accommodation rates for parties (subject to availability) and a gift voucher to the value of €50 for the booker of parties of 25 or more!
