A Christmas lunch that raises funds for small  Irish charities annually .

The Giving Guild was set up in 2011 by school friends, Ciara McGettigan, Jenny Hughes & Sheila Campbell. Our goal was to organise a festive lunch in the Intercontinental Hotel, Dublin 4, raising funds each year for a different Irish charity. Supported by our friends and their friends, we have built a following of ladies who attend the Giving Guild lunch loyally.  Few tables at our lunch change hands, helping to create an intimate atmosphere where there are often few degrees of separation amongst those attending.

It’s fun, its unique and it’s regularly a little crazy!

Since 2011 we have helped small Irish charities to build new wards in hospitals; provide playgrounds for children with intellectual disability; create sensory rooms for children with profound  needs and update kitchen facilities in short-term accommodation facilities for parents whose children are in hospital and more. 

Over €169,000 has been donated  to date.

We want to thank all those who attend the Giving Guild lunch for supporting us in holding this very special event for some great causes.

We are old friends sharing our time, expertise and resources in creating a much-loved event, while raising funds for worthy organisations.
