The combination of our upstairs and downstairs rooms with their own toilet facilities, provides a huge range of possibilities for your party - whatever sort it maybe.
You could hold a family "do" with the children having their own room and a separate space for the  adults to make merry.
If you wish an adults only affair - you could do that too.
The use of the kitchen further widens the potential scope of your celebrations.
Should you need to hold a wake for a loved one, the Centre could be an ideal place for such a gathering.
