Uisneach Catering take all the stress out of party or event planning. I have used them at home for family events, and for client’s corporate events – I cannot recommend Aine and her team highly enough. She is a joy to work with, offering a range of well-priced diverse menu options, and a bespoke service if you want something a little bit different! Best catering company I’ve ever used!read more
