We had a work party night (45 of us) in Empire. The staff were excellent so professional and accommodating nothing was a problem we had entertainment for a couple of hours and a large chocolate fondue that they helped us with. The food was excellent and plenty of it. The venue was perfect for such a large crowd we were given our own area that was beside the bar and dance floor. We were treated like V.I.P.'s for the entire night. Everyone is raving about the service and the night. Great music on the night. We will definitely be back. Thanks so much to Jerry, Ciara and all the team. Elaine | McCabes Pharmacy

We recently arranged to do a wine tasting evening in Empire, and have to say it was amazing. There were 25 of us on the tasting. When we arrived we were ushered downstairs to a private area, where we had a selection of canapés and a tasting of Prosecco to settle in. The food was served on big wooden chopping boards, very rustic, everyone was impressed with the selection! We tried various wine (red and white) from around the world. Very laid back discussion. There were information sheets handed out with info on all the wines we were tasting. Maureen gave out details of a wine comparison App for your phone which we have all since downloaded!! Lasted approx. 2 hours in total, great way to spend an afternoon!! Would definitely recommend, and we'll be back next year for the same! Rhona Cotter | Siemens
