Brought to you by Hamlets, Kinsale.
Barbecue season is almost here and we can practically smell the sizzling sausages.
Now that the weather is finally improving, our thoughts have turned to al fresco dinners, cocktails and dancing into the long summer nights.
In all honesty though, we’d rather not be stuck manning the grill for the entire party. This year we’ll be on the lookout for venues that do all the hard work for you.
Step forward Hamlets, the Kinsale nightspot with some of the best heated outdoor space in Cork; and all within a stone’s throw from the sea.
With live music throughout the week and a DJ every Saturday until the early hours, savvy party people reserve a private area to kick off the fun early with a barbecue feast.
And there’s plenty of areas to choose from, whether you’re organising a private family celebration or a corporate night out for your colleagues; each seating set-up has its own unique identity, from the new Orchard Thieves Garden to the pretty Secret Garden and the Boat, which is cleverly crafted from the hull of an old Dragon Sailing Boat.
Barbecue menus including a choice of salads, chargrilled favourites hot off the grill and a selection of breads, dips and sauces are available from €22.50 per person for groups of 25 people or more. You can add a selection of summer desserts too if you want to push the boat out.
Hamlets is the perfect next day party venue for after a wedding – you can book in a smaller group of close family and friends or gather the gang for a Day Two barbecue.
Our advice is to reserve your dates early to secure your favourite area. Then you can sit back and wait for the weather to warm up.
