Following the completion of the first phase of a refurbishment of Co. Kildare's Killashee Hotel by new owner FBD Hotels & Resorts, the conference facilities at the hotel have undergone a transformation as part of a €5 million investment up to the end of 2024.
The conference facilities at Killashee including conference rooms, meeting spaces and breakout rooms have been upgraded to feature new contemporary furnishings, AV systems, built in screens, LCD projectors, Nespresso coffee machines and high speed wifi.
On the first floor, there are five meeting rooms centred around the Larkspur lounge, suitable for coffee breaks, group discussions and networking. These meeting rooms are equipped with AV, screens, stationery and Nespresso coffee machines. The rooms are adaptable to purpose and numbers. The Blue Room can accommodate up to 20, while Boardroom 1 can seat 50 people cabaret style, Boardroom 2 accommodates 20 people, and The Fountain Suite can seat 50 people cabaret style.
Refurbishment of The Lockewood Suite, the main conference space that has its own private reception and can cater for 600 theatre style or 350 classroom style, will be completed by early August. This space can be divided into three independent meeting rooms or transformed into an exhibition centre, indoor team building area or car display area, with direct access to the Rathaskar Lawns.
Kilashee's team of experienced event coordinators can create a bespoke event for each individual group ranging from 10-600 people, working with the available facilities and a choice of activities from BBQ to team building activities.
