Let's tell you a bit about us...

Caulfield & Dorrity Catering Services was established in Ballymena by Michael Caulfield and Raymond Dorrity over 25 years ago, providing delicious food for weddings and many other events throughout Northern Ireland. As a family owned, local business, with a fantastic team of professional, dedicated people, we are committed to sourcing the very best in local produce. We pride ourselves on a much more personal touch than that offered by other larger catering companies.

A rare day off at the races 

From start to finish you will deal directly with Laura, the wife of Co-Owner and Head Chef Michael. We always assure you of Michael’s presence throughout your event, as we only permit one booking per day to ensure this central personal approach.  Michael is also a part time lecturer in Catering and Hospitality at Northern Regional College, and is proud to play a part in encouraging young people to enter the industry.

We are delighted to present this brochure to you, detailing our menus and pricing structure. This covers all of our venues, including the Wool Tower, Hillmount House, Glenarm Castle, Lissanoure Castle and many others. Our work also includes catering for up to 300 guests for corporate lunches and dinners, ranging from the Mid & East Antrim Borough Council, Ballymena United FC, and award ceremonies.

Each main course option shows our full price, which is inclusive of:


  • All essential staffing and set up.

  • Tea or coffee and mini  shortbread hearts on arrival.

  • Choice of starter and main course.

  • Choice of two desserts or a  trio of mini desserts.

  • Tea or coffee and after dinner mints.

  • Jugs of water with fresh mint.

  • White crockery and cutlery.

  • No VAT applies.

  • No Kitchen Fee.

NO other charges will apply to you at any stage. We normally like to invite you to our home so that you can sit with us and discuss your own ideas and requirements in an informal, relaxed atmosphere before making a final decision on your preferred caterer. During our meeting we can also provide you with many references, should you wish to speak to any of our previous clients.


Canapés, evening suppers and vegetarian / vegan options are available on request.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Laura & Michael
