We had our wedding here and it was fabulous. The wedding coordinator, Dee, went above and beyond to help us and make it the most special and memorable day for us. The attention to detail was five stars. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious. On the day, Dee, Seamus and all the staff were

extremely attentive and helpful. The food was excellent. All of our guests agreed and we highly recommend this venue. The gardens are well maintained and were perfect for photos. There are no faults to this hotel.

From first meeting to the day of the wedding, the team in the County Arms were brilliant. They made us feel great and did all they could for us. They wanted us to have the full wedding experience no matter how many guests were involved.

They were very good at accommodating the family members

staying in the hotel including the kids.
The hotel is set in from the road with big lawns and lovely gardens, a lovely spot to let the kids play. The gardens have lovely flowers and vegetables within a walled setting - great for pictures. There is a very friendly feel to the place.

Deirdre and Seamus were great at putting us at ease and making us feel welcome on the day. The food was gorgeous and plenty of it. We had our reception upstairs in the hotel in what was the original house and it has lovely character features and is self contained, which was fantastic. Just perfect for our intimate reception. The Covid measures were followed and everyone felt safe. Really enjoyed the day and would recommend.

The county arms were amazing for our wedding day. Everyone was so impressed with the food and the service. Its a family run business and you definitely get a homely feel from them and they really care about how the guests are enjoying the day. The day after the wedding our nieces and nephew were

I don't know where to start. Our wedding day was the happiest of our lives and a major part of that was the County Arms Hotel and the fantastic service they provided. In the lead up to the wedding, they were fantastic. Every email or phone call was answered and any I never felt any stress or worry

because they were always on top of everything. On the day, they were amazing. Everything went perfectly. We had our ceremony in the Maple Room and it's a perfect venue. Guests are still raving about the food, from the carvery rolls on arrival to the hogroast at midnight. The meal itself was fantastic, delicious and perfectly timed. The County Arms also sourced music for our drinks reception and the residence bar. I would highly recommend as they were great and the party started immediately after the ceremony and didn't stop until the small hours. Our photographer was so impressed with the grounds, he got some fantastic pictures and I cannot wait to see our album. I really cannot recommend Conor, Barry and especially Michelle highly enough

were treated like royalty and so too were our guests with the fab food and drinks that awaited our arrival...with music in the bar and a great atmosphere...the craic wasn't long to get going! Everything went off to a T and it was all very relaxed, helped by the friendly staff who joined in with the banter throughout the night! We just can't thank the hotel management and staff enough for really making our day and night an absolutely amazing experience!! Our guests are still raving about the food and how fab the hotel is (all 283 of them!). I would recommend the County Arms hotel in a heart beat to my closet friends and family...3 of our guests have since booked it for their own weddings; I think that says enough!
