A HUGE thank you for making our wedding day just the most perfect day.

Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined just how wonderful it was.

I don’t know where to start with our thanks really as we are completely blown away. Our guests cannot stop saying how perfect the venue was

too. The food was amazing.

The organisation and communication were fantastic from day one, I knew after the first date change and how easily and swiftly that was sorted that we were in really safe hands with you.

The kindness you showed when we had last minute changes was so appreciated.

Thank you so much for opening up your space to us and our guests, it’s absolutely stunning and I hope we didn’t disturb you at any point….there were some crazy dance moves and silly stuff.

I could write pages and pages about how absolutely brilliant you are there but we will be eternally grateful to you for making our day perfect, we will be talking about it for a long time to come.

Thank you, Megan and all your staff for making our Day truly Special.

Myself and Paul would like to say a massive thank you to all the staff at the Headfort Arms Hotel for making our wedding day so special. We had our wedding ceremony and reception on the 6th of May in the hotel. The wedding coordinators Megan and Edel were both absolutely amazing and an absolute

pleasure to deal with. Both regularly checked in with me to ensure everything was running smoothly and according to plan. Between the two of them they organised everything for us so it was completely stress free. I had trouble trying to find a makeup artist and hairdresser as I didn't have a bridal party. Megan arranged this for me and also for both of them to come to the hotel on the day of the wedding. She was also amazing on the day of the wedding too and nothing was too much trouble for her. She sent me a lovely text message on the morning of the ceremony and she also calmed my nerves which set in just before the ceremony. She is extremely professional and has a lovely bubbly personality. She was on hand from early on in the day to very late that evening. I was shocked to see her in early again the next morning and helping to serve breakfast. You can clearly see how hard she works and she is an absolute credit to the hotel. The hotel is extremely lucky to have her and all the other amazing staff. We couldn't fault any of them.
The ceremony was also held in the hotel and the room was so beautifully decorated. We had hoped to have our wedding ceremony and reception in the beautiful gardens of the hotel but unfortunately the weather let us down. The effort that went into making the room so perfect made up for the disappointment of the typical unpredictable Irish weather! We also managed to get a few professional photographs taken in the lovely gardens in between the rain.
The service and food were just outstanding. I had been told that it was a great hotel for a wedding venue and the food was fabulous which I can definitely vouch for.

We had our wedding on the 8th of April 2022 and we had our reception at The Headfort Arms Hotel. Being a local couple, we had attended numerous events and weddings in The Headfort Arms so we already knew the quality of service they provided, so for us, it was a no brainer to celebrate our big day

with them.

From the beginning, they were a pleasure to deal with. Our original date was in July 2020 and due to Covid we had to postpone twice and both times the girls were so helpful in arranging our new dates. Our wedding coordinator was Megan, who was so helpful and professional at all times. As our date got closer, some issues arose and nothing was a problem for Megan, she came up with different ideas to still make our day as special as possible. When we arrived at The Headfort on the day of our wedding both Olivia and Megan were there to greet us and we were made feel so special. We had our photos taken in the beautiful Headfort garden and the Kenlis suite looked amazing. The food was excellent, as always, and the staff on the day were so friendly and helpful. If it's quality food and service you are looking for, at a beautifully decorated venue with a homely feel, we highly recommend The Headfort Arms Hotel.

Thank you so much again for all your help Megan, we had the best day!

We had the pleasure of having our wedding here in December. The venue means a lot to us as it's where we met! From the beginning we were made feel so comfortable and felt that everyone would be helping make the day relaxed and special. As for the day itself, well they delivered! The staff went above

and beyond for us and our family. That personal touch and familiar feel won out, even sending out for safety pins for dresses!! The room was fabulous with personalised touches. The breakfast was a huge hit, especially with the groom!! Thanks again to all and will be regular callers whenever passing by.
