Fun way to spend a few hours.We tried the plant based class and it was well worth it and good fun . It was led by the wonderful Edel who was very informative, charming and easy to listen to . This class is a combination of demonstration and hands on cooking . Splitting into teams worked very well as everyone just fell into a system of cooking together, thankfully no big egos . The recipes were easy to follow and all the ingredients were standard store cupboard essentials . Catherine Fulvio dropped in to chat with everyone, again she was welcoming and keen for everyone to enjoy the experience rather than pushing her books . If you are looking for a cookery class ... give it a go .

Imagine a group of 40 mainly Americans of a certain age enjoying almost raucously cooking their own lunch of soups, soda bread, cakes and a main course with veggies and, being Ireland, potatoes. Imagine too all that lot being “taught” and entertained by the Irish lady of the house - well farm actually - and her ever willing and helpful and smiling lady assistants. It was an uproarious way to spend a wet morning in Ireland not too far from Dublin. The garden is relaxing to wander through. The food was served in the barn.Perhaps the teaching kitchen could do with a minor upgrade but all in all this was a most enjoyable part of our tour. But the highlight has to be the chatelaine herself, well known on Irish TV and even Netflix, we were told.

Had a FANTASTIC class with Catherine Fulvio at the Ballyknocken Cookery School while on a shore excursion from the Crown Princess. Catherine was so very welcoming and taught our group how to make scones and Irish soda bread. Afterwards, the group ate what we made in the barn. It was a wonderful morning Catherine! Thank you so very much! We hope to be back one day! 🇺🇸

Pleasant people and outing. Kitchen, garden, and dining "shed" can take large groups. We made our soup and steak and Guinness lunch and had many a laugh. Flashy NO, but friendly and fun.
