Join our Hogmanay House Party this New Year.

This is a two-night Dinner, Bed & Breakfast break, including Champagne reception, five-course Hogmanay Dinner and Ceilidh.

Hogmanay is the highlight of the winter season at Knockderry Country House and so our rooms are booked up quite quickly. To ensure your reservation we recommend that you book as soon as possible.

Check-in is from 3.00 pm then relax in the drawing room meeting fellow house guests whilst enjoying a scrumptious afternoon tea. Our Hogmanay party reception starts at 6.30 pm with a glass of champagne and some canapés served in the gallery to get you in the mood!

Colin, our House Piper, will pipe us into dinner after which Whisky Kiss, the world-renowned ceilidh band, will guide us through a range of Scottish dances and reels until the wee hours. Our First Foot Supper is served just after midnight.

Dress is black tie, kilts or mess kit for the gentlemen and evening dress for ladies.
