Gowran Park is an ideal conference venue in Kilkenny where we can cater from 20 to 400 delegates. Our conference venue is located on the top floor of our grandstand overlooking the golf and racecourses. It is a multi purpose room which can be used for a range of corporate events such as meetings, product launches, off site training and AGM’s.

  • Our main function room can be subdivided into two smaller rooms where food can be served on one side and a meeting or conference takes place in the other.
  • There is ample car parking with hundreds of free spaces available.
  • On site catering is available through our partners Good Enuf to Eat who can tailor make a menu to suit any budget.
  • Through our golf course we offer shower and locker room facilities.
  • With our close proximity to the M9 motorway Gowran Park is very accessible for delegates travelling from north and south.

We work with Team Dynamics Kilkenny to offer indoor and outdoor team building games and activities specifically tailored to your corporate team building requirements.

Past events include Green Energy Fair, Thoroughbred Breeders Seminar, Enterprise Ireland Exporters Showcase and the Glanbia E-AGM.

Corporate Golf Day – why not make a day of it with a meeting/presentation, followed by golf and a meal. All of which can be held onsite at Gowran Park.
