You got the ring. You’ve got down on one knee. You’ve got the “yes”, and now there’s a blissful feeling that can only be made better with a big party to celebrate getting engaged.
Now planning an engagement party shouldn’t be too difficult (you have to leave all that for the wedding), but it’s important to have a little bit of a party to celebrate the great news. At McGowan’s, we help couples have some fun with friends and family after an engagement.
Engagement parties at McGowans
We love having couples come and celebrate their engagement here with us. A setting like ours makes for a warm and welcoming atmosphere that’s ideal for any type of engagement party in Dublin; whether it’s an informal affair with a few close friends or a big family do.
Engagement antics with friends
Your friends have been on your for ages to pop the question and now that it’s finally happened, sure wouldn’t it be a good time for a big party? McGowans makes a great spot to have an engagement party in Phibs.
With our range of cocktails, reliable beers on tap and of course a few bottles of bubbly on the table, you can have a cracking party with your friends.
Laidback engagement party with the family
Do both your families already know each other, or is the start of in-laws getting to meet each other? Make sure it gets off to a good start with a family engagement party where everyone is looked after.
We can have you booked in for a big family meal or give you part of the bar to have a family get together for a few hours. We can cater for parties of 5 to 100 with enough notice, making us the ideal engagement party venue in North Dublin.
Private engagement parties in Dublin
Don’t want to feel like you’re sharing the occasion with a bunch of strangers looking from the other side of the bar?
There are plenty of areas you can book as a private space for your engagement party. Take a look at our spaces for hire to see the areas you can have a party in. The cocktail lounge in the front bar proves to be popular, especially if you’re having an intimate party planned on a quiet weekend afternoon.
Engagement parties with food covered
You want an engagement party to go by as smoothly as possible and not feel like a chore. That’s especially important when you’re looking at what to get.
We recommend getting some of our legendary platters you can pop on the table and let everyone take their pick of. Also, we want to be as clear as possible with what’s in our food and have an allergen key on the menu to let people know what’s in certain foods. It’s a good idea to pop the menu (which you’ll find here) in the group chat just in case someone coming has a particular food intolerance.
