Our events cater to the specific needs of groups and partners. The events are normally delivered at the Commodore hotel, however they can be organised at other locations nationwide.

We have created a wide variety of other activities because of the popularity of our Titanic events. These events include walking tours, lectures, harbour tours, Spike Island tours, evening ghost walks, and organized historic pub crawls.
