Few treats are more luxe than a long, leisurely lunch.
Especially at Christmas, when long-awaited catch-ups over bubbles can be savoured against the backdrop of twinkling tree lights… and extended over another bottle or two.
In a season steeped in tradition and marked by moments of joy and connection, at The River Lee, part of the Irish-owned luxury hotel group, The Doyle Collection, the art of the holiday lunch takes centre stage this year.
The venue is pulling out all the stops to create memorable Christmas experiences for parties of all sizes, from a romantic meal à deux after the Santa shopping trip to a raucous family reunion or an elevated office shindig.
Festive Afternoon Tea
This year a festive afternoon tea will be served in the glamorous lobby Cocktail Bar, which is the ideal spot to kick back with relatives or friends and savour the sumptuous menu of finger sandwiches, decadent desserts, fresh scones and lashings of whipped cream.
Cocktails in The River Club
With a festive hum in the air, there’s no place more vibey than The River Club for a glamorous get-together. Meet at the bar then take a seat for small plates as you make your way through the carefully curated cocktail list.
Make a night of it
The River Lee has a selection of wonderful overnight stays perfect for celebrating or Christmas shopping trips, with incredible winter menus to raise a glass over at your festive group lunch or dinner.
Meet up for a Sunday roast
