Within this page you will find a comprehensive and detailed list of all the facilities available on Lambay.
Our recommended catering teams and chefs know the island and facilities well, but if you wish to self-cater or bring your own catering staff, the below information will be very helpful in preparing for your stay. Please note we have a fairly detailed recycling system on Lambay, which we will guide you or your catering team through on arrival.
COMMERCIALLY FITTED KITCHEN
There is a commercially fitted kitchen in the White House for caterers to use. This is ideally situated for larger events where the main meals take place either in the White House, the Bothy Club Room or in a marquee nearby.
Besides the commercial kitchen in the White House, there is an adjacent standard kitchen with ample room for cooking, a 5-hob LaCanche range with gas and electric ovens. There are three large ceramic sinks, one with a professional tap for washing up, and a standard dishwasher. There are also two small blister kitchens in the White House, complete with small fridge/freezer combos, 4-hob ranges and gas ovens, a sink and storage space.
The Castle has a spacious kitchen with a large fridge and freezer, additional deep-freeze, two ceramic sinks and an 8-hob LaCanche range with gas and electric ovens. The Cottage and Bothy both have a small kitchen with 4-hob ranges and gas or electric ovens, small fridges; the Bothy has a dishwasher and the Cottage has separate freezer space.
There is a spacious bar (stocked on request) in the Bothy, which has a sink and storage space but no refrigeration. There is a small fridge in the accommodation area of the Bothy, which is just down the hall from the Bar. If you require our assistance in stocking the bar, we have a local wine supplier in Dublin with an extensive list of excellent wines to suit all budgets and palates. Wine can be ordered in advance of your island booking and any superfluous stock will be boxed up for you to take home. Beer and spirits can be ordered by us in advance of your visit via Musgraves.
Wi-Fi, Tech Eequipment, Facilitators, Games and More

We have a projector and large portable screen available for use, as well as HDMI cable and an adaptor to suit some Macs. We also have a Bose speaker which can be connected via cable or Bluetooth.
We have two large metal fire bowls available for outdoor fires - a safe, picturesque and portable alternative to bonfires.
There is a selection of games available, including Croquet, Bocce, Kubb, Ping-Pong, Settlers of Catan, Scrabble and Jigsaw Puzzles. The Castle has a Snooker table (Pool balls also available) for groups renting the Castle or the whole island.
