Join our Hogmanay House Party 2018
Monday 31st December 2018 to Wednesday 2nd January 2019
This year we are delighted to introduce The Grouse Ceilidh Band, one of the UK’s finest ceilidh bands with years of experience playing professionally for special occasions. For those who relish a night of dancing the set will include classic ceilidh dances such as the Gay Gordons and the Dashing White Sergeant in addition to newer, popular dances. And those unfamiliar with the repertoire needn’t worry, as all dancers are guided step-by-step by the bands expert callers ensuring a fun and inclusive night for everyone!
Our fantastic Hogmanay House Party is a two-night bed & breakfast break, which includes a homemade afternoon tea on arrival, a Champagne reception, five-course Hogmanay Dinner and Ceilidh on Hogmanay Party and Brunch on New Year’s Day. Dress is black tie, kilts or mess kit for the gentlemen and evening dress for ladies. Non-resident tickets are available to book for the evening of the 31st only. Tickets are £95 and include the five-course dinner, the ceilidh and the first foot supper.
Hogmanay is the highlight of the winter season at Knockderry Country House and our rooms book up quite quickly. To ensure your reservation and avoid disappointment, we recommend that you book as soon as possible. In addition, we offer discounted wraparound nights for those who might like to extend their stay by a night or two. Prices are below and the wrap around night price is in brackets.
