This all occurs through an established registered charitable organisation, the Kilanerin-Ballyfad Community Development Association.

How do I book the hall?
Simply call 089 4456184 or email Days and times will be allocated on a first come-first served basis. Although there is still good availability most days/ evenings of the week, we would recommend contacting us at your earliest convenience. We are particularly interested in hearing from any groups, clubs, small businesses or societies that are interested in either the sports facilities or the other meeting facilities described above, and due to open mid-2017.

How do I find the hall?
We will give you directions during the booking process. For those traveling via the M11, we would recommend taking the Gorey exit 22, turn right at Green’s Berry Farm towards Kilanerin. When you reach the village, turn right just after the shop / school (just before the Church) and the centre is 400m on your right. The hall will be opened 5 minutes before your expected arrival unless set-up time is required.

A big thank you to new & existing groups – each booking is supporting our community!
