Cloughjordan House is a 400 year old historic farmhouse set in 8 acres of beautiful gardens and woodland areas owned by Peter and Sarah Baker. The successful family business hosts country house party weddings. There is also a purpose built cookery school which offers day classes for Transition Year 'Farm to Fork' Tours where students harvest vegetables from the walled garden, cook and eat and 5th Year Home Economics assignment practical days. There are options of group cookery classes with bed & breakfast for groups of 16+ whether for a family celebration or for corporate days out. The cookery school was started due to Sarah Baker's passion and love of fresh and "real" food. This love of fantastically tasty local food conveys in the wedding food on offer at the venue. Cloughjordan House offers a relaxed country house party venue with the marquee seating up to 175. The romantic ballroom with it's large open fireplace is used for humanist and civil ceremonies and then comes alive after dinner for music and dancing. There is a covered BBQ area where the party atmosphere can continue to make a full two or three days of fun, family and friends all sharing the special event. Cloughjordan House has accommodation for up to 54+ guests on-site with Georgian rooms in the main house and then to the warm homely comfort of the Coachhouse and to the quirky, rustic and warm Milking Parlour and Cow Shed rooms. All rooms are en-suite, uniquely decorated and offer comfortable beds with quality linen. At Cloughjordan House the focus is on family, friends, good quality and tasty food and a relaxed atmosphere.

Highly recommended. Day long intensive course taught us a number of new techniques, and we hoovered up enough tips to fill several books. And that lunch -= de-bloody-licious. Took my baking to the next level in one fell swoop! Thanks Joe!

This is a bit in the middle of nowhere, but it is great for a wedding where the whole area is taken over, as it was for my friend's recently. We were staying nearby in the eco-village, but it was such a lovely building and garden. The space has ample facilities and the food provided by the in-house caterers was... More

Our group had an excellent experience at the Cloughjordan cookery school. From the garden tour through the lesson it could not have been better. Some snags with email response, but that is a small detriment to the fabulous time we had!
