Venue Listing

Posted: Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

Here, at last, is a list of venues around Ireland that have already been used for Art Jams.. so if you are looking for a venue in your area you may find one here.  I find the most places will be happy to lend their venue to any regular art jam, however, for a hens art jam the room has to be private and all of the venues below can be used for regular or hens party art jams.   This list will be continuously updated as new venues come on board.

Dublin.

Ballsbridge Court Hotel – Formerly the 5 star Berkley Court Hotel.  The have kindly offered a special room rate for hens booking with Art Jam Irelandof €99 per room – so for 2 people sharing thats 49.50 to stay in this luxurious hotel, and they will give a meeting/function room included in the price to hold the art jam.   For hens looking for something else different they also have a private cinema room that can be hired out for the evening,  so if you are looking a quieter night out – why not watch “Sex & the City” drinking champagne with your friends!!  http://www.d4hotels.ie/pages/ballsbridge-court.php
