From our very first encounter with Dee and the team at the County Arms we knew we were in safe hands. The team can’t do enough for us, and always go the extra mile. A very special mention to Dee, who was amazing, she made the whole process seamless, we couldn’t have asked for more. Our family

and friends are still talking about the food, which was next level and plenty of it. The grounds and Georgian part of the hotel makes for amazing picture opportunities which meant we got to spend so much more time with our guests on the day. We had the best experience and would highly recommend. We planned our wedding from London and Dee and the team were always on hand to answer any question and chat. Dealing with the team at the County Arms meant for a stress free experience.

A massive thanks to the County Arms for making our wedding day the most unforgettable day of our lives! Our ceremony and reception was even more perfect than we could ever have imagined. Our special day would not have been possible without the hard work, time and expertise from Dee & all the team.

I think we cannot recommend County Arms Hotel and Niamh & Dee high enough.
These 2 ladies helped me make our dream come true or even beyond. Always open to any of our ideas and very helpful with the things we've never thought of.
We felt very special and very understood in every way.

We got married on 2nd August 2023 in Ferbane and had our Wedding Reception at the County Arms afterwards. It was absolutely fabulous! We would not have changed a thing about the day or night. Most of the guests stayed for three nights at the hotel and it was excellent. The service and

professionalism from the County Arms went above and beyond our expectations. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. A special shout out to Niamh, Dee, Michelle, Shannon, Claire, David, Liam, Aiden and Chloe, who were all fantastic but nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff.
Guests are still talking about the wedding and how brilliant it was. Many want a reunion next year! Comments from guests include, 'Best wedding ever!' 'It was OUTSTANDING!' 'This is better than my own wedding!' 'It was spectacular!'
We would recommend the County Arms for a Wedding Reception, without reservation!
Thank you to all involved!
