Celtic Barn

A new multi purpose facility in the beautiful town of Waipu, situated in the Caledonian Park. The main area can seat 400 for dinner or 600 auditorium style and can also be used for indoor sports such as basketball, netball or indoor soccer. The lobby area is ideal for weddings or other functions. It can seat approximately 180 auditorium style and 130 for dinner. The Celtic Barn has excellent kitchen facilities and all rooms have large bifold doors opening out onto the Caledonian Park.

About The Celtic Barn

The Celtic Barn came about when plans to refurbish the existing hall grew into the ambitious Celtic Barn project. It takes a special kind of community to realise a $1.8 million project, but that’s just what happened and the community got behind the project and raised over $800,000.

As well as generous donations from individuals and local businesses, the Waipu Caledonian Trust also received grants from the New Zealand Lottery Grants Board, the ASB Community Trust and Whangarei District Council and the dream became a reality when the Celtic Barn was built in 2015.
