Christmas Celebrations at Anocht

Delight in all the joy of Christmas with award winning food at Anocht this party season. An ideal venue for your Christmas Party with an unrivalled festive ambience, award winning food, unique dining spaces and personalised service combine to deliver an evening to remember.
Whether it’s a romantic dinner for two, an intimate family get together, an end of year work celebration or a New Year’s Eve party there’s no better place to enjoy the festive season than in one of Kilkenny’s most historic dining rooms.
Built in the 1760s by the Earl of Ormonde, Anocht, upstairs at Kilkenny Design Centre, was originally part of a large complex of buildings attached to the castle that housed a dairy, stables and coach houses. Today the famous cartwheel windows overlook Kilkenny castle while original overhead wooden beams with hanging, linen drops create a unique & intimate atmosphere.
The festive menus, crafted by head chef Rory Nolan and team, offer contemporary twists on traditional dishes and include Anocht’s classic prawn and crabmeat starter along with seasonal specialities such as roasted pheasant with braised red cabbage, chestnuts, pancetta and roasted pumpkin; all accompanied by festive cocktails, beers and wines.
Private or shared party nights are available across Anocht’s two unique rooms, with two full bars, and a comprehensive wine list. For €39.50 commence the evening with a glass of sparkling prosecco before taking your seat in the cosy surrounds for your three-course festive supper. Whether you are looking for a prestigious setting for a party with your colleagues, fine dining with friends, or a casual evening of feasting and fun, Anocht has it on a plate for you this festive season.
