Sea Church and Cush providing party packages this festive season


The East Cork seaside village of Ballycotton will be a hive of activity for Christmas, as various venues have come together to offer rounded packages, including a chance to dine at award-winning Cush and enjoy a show at the beautiful nearby Sea Church.


Sea Church has an eclectic programme over the month of December which includes  Lisa Canny, An ABBA Tribute Act, Jack L and Karl Spain. The stunning venue can be enjoyed in its own right, or as part of a full night out, thanks to its link-up with Cush. The acclaimed eatery, which recently launched a number of new menus, has a pre-theatre menu package that includes show tickets for any Sea Church gig during the Christmas season.


To finish 2023 in style, a major New Year’s Eve party is taking place at Sea Church, as Jerry Fish & The Electric Sideshow will transform the venue into a circus wonderland. The night kicks off at 9pm when guests will be treated to a complimentary glass of bubbly, followed by a performance by local folk duo Dark & Lively. Jerry Fish will then ring in 2024 with a spectacle that sees him as carnival creator and circus ringmaster, while performing all of his back catalogue of greatest hits.

As part of the New Year’s Eve experience at Ballycotton, gig goers to Sea Church can enjoy an overnight stay at Cush, or at the neighbouring Bayview Hotel, allowing visitors to ring in 2024 and enjoy a complete getaway in the beautiful seaside location.


Commenting on the various ways in which people can enjoy Ballycotton this Christmas, John Kidney, General Manager of Sea Church said: “We’re so lucky to be situated in one of the most scenic parts of the country, and even luckier still that Ballycotton has some of the best entertainment and hospitality offerings in Cork. It makes perfect sense for us to team up with Cush, and the Bayview Hotel, to make sure that people who attend our gigs this Christmas can experience a  full festive experience by the sea.”
