Hosting an Event..Need Catering?

We would be delighted to provide our services to you.  Host the finest parties at your house or workplace and let us do all the work. (As well as supplying a Home Catering Service, we also provide Corporate Hospitality, Weddings etc.)

We guarantee excellent food and service for your catering needs to fully compliment your important occasion.  We pride ourselves on quality and consistency in the foods we serve and the service we provide.  All foods are locally sourced, prepared & cooked by our skilled teams at the “The Old Barracks Bistro & Bakery”.

Some information to help you get the best out of your event 

  • All of our ingredients are locally sourced where possible and prepared by hand by the team in our state of the art kitchens


  • All of our meats and fish are from local producers.  Our Beef, Lamb, Chicken and Pork are 100% Irish and traceable


  • We deliver and collect to and from your location free of charge for a minimum of 10 people in the town of Athenry. Outside of Athenry we require a minimum spend of €350 to facilitate delivery.  Hot Dishes are € 12.50 per person including a side. We also offer a wide selection of precooked heat at home catering options if more suitable for your event.


  • Many of our dishes are made to a Gluten Free specification so please ask us if this is required for your event.


  • Children- We often find that a half portion of our Hot Dishes are suitable for children, if not, we can provide Sausages or Chicken Goujons for €4 per child (include Mash on the side for €6 per child)


  • We provide dishes & cutlery free of charge with our hot food service, although they will incur a fee if returned unclean or broken.


  • We are happy to deliver your food in hot boxes, at your venue we will set up chafing dishes and light fuel cells underneath, they burn for 2 - 2.5hrs ensuring that your dish is kept piping hot from the moment it leaves our kitchen until it reaches your plate!


  • We are unable to deliver Cold Food only, but we will happily arrange a collection time with you


  • We would encourage you to book your date with us as soon as possible.  We would then contact you again on the Monday prior to your event to get final numbers and meal choices.  This allows us enough time to ensure we can cater to our usual high standard! (In the month of May this will be the Monday 2 weeks prior to your event)


  • Please note that although we will endeavour to arrive at your location at a specified time, at certain times of year we require flexibility due to the logistics of multiple events.  We will discuss this with you, if necessary, prior to your event

We look forward to helping you organise your occasion
