What we do for private events is engage, look for the possible and seek out how we might work together.

What our guests have to say about us..

Just wanted to say a big thank you from the Paramount Team.  All the staff at Airfield from Event Executive, Service Manager and Catering Staff responded to all our requests in a professional, timely and friendly manner.  The surrounds and facilities enhanced our theme of Health and Wellbeing and lead to a wonderful event for all that attended.

Siobhan O’Callaghan CEO Paramount College

Below the Line recently held an event at Airfield Estate for our clients. The setting, room and food were all fantastic and the level of support and help we got both in the run up and on the day of the event was second to none. I would have no hesitation in using Airfield Estate again and would highly recommend it to anyone considering hosting an event there…

David Duggan, Director, Below the Line Training & Development

It was a fantastic experience from start to finish and we could not say enough good things about it.

Teish and the staff on the evening itself were all consistently wonderful and the feedback from all was that there was a real sense of people loving their jobs and working as a team which was lovely to be on the receiving end of and made the evening so much more enjoyable as a result. Several people commented on the personal touch of the staff from walking them out to ensuring they were enjoying the evening.

I would like to pass on our delight at our corporate event held in Airfield house last week. Having our event at Airfield have us privacy and flexibility we would not have gotten at an ordinary restaurant. Having the house and gardens to ourselves enabled us to relax and have a pleasant walk around before dinner, this was welcomed by all as we had had a tough day in the office. The house and gardens are fantastic and the guide helped to put everything in context. The food was exceptional and the service impeccable.

Shona D’arcy, Novartis

Just a quick note to say a massive Thank You to all of the staff at Airfield for making our event such a great success. The staff should be highly commended on their professionalism and friendliness.

The food, service and presentation was second to none and would not hesitate using Airfield again as a future event.

Fergal Lynch, Chill Insurance

We had a fantastic Summer BBQ event in the Airfield Barn which we were able to hire for a sunny evening in May. The relaxed setting close to the city centre was ideal for all our staff. The festival style of the barn complete with hay bale seating, fairy lights and the exceptional staff at Airfield contributed to a brilliant event. The food in particular was top notch. We will definitely look at holding another private event at Airfield. Thanks again guys!
Nigel Bateman, Accenture

Fantastic location and facilities. Staff were so accommodating during our conference and the food was incredible. Would highly recommend the venue.

Frequently Asked Questions

Style of food and service

Relaxed, robust, honest and homely is how we like to describe it. In many instances harvested from less than 500 metres away in our own farm and gardens.

We don’t do posh. Or fine dining for that matter. We’ve a fantastic chef and kitchen brigade who focus on taking great ingredients and cooking them simply.

There’s no frippery, we want things to taste of themselves. As for our style of service, there is nothing silver about it; polite, professional and customer focused – the way it should be!

How to use Airfield Estate

Roughly speaking the Estate for events divides into the ‘built’ environment – the family home, the hive, the barn, Overends and then there’s the ‘open’ environment – the paddocks, open fields and beautifully landscaped lawns and gardens. But they link to each other too.

Our culture and approach to events is very much driven by the Overend sister, Letitia and Naomi. They were rather an inspirational pair, travelling extensively, servicing their own cars and devoting their lives to organisations like St. John’s Ambulance. Intrepid, adventurous, caring, interested and visionary, they’re a real benchmark for us today.

All we ask is that you try not to see us as one thing. We like to link things together: field to plate, people to people, history to the present, culture to the experience and the past so it can be harnessed to deliver memories today and for tomorrow.

It’s a question we ask ourselves a great deal. We know there’s a lot of competition out there. Because we’re different, because we tailor make events, building them from the ground up, together with you, the customer. Because at Airfield Estate what you get is unique, special.

Our job is not to persuade you, but to let you see for yourself what we do and leave you to make your own decision. We want you to be honest with us as much as we want to be honest with you. A real partnership.

Airfield estate has been here for many years and will be in the future so it matters to us that the right decisions are made, all of the time.
