What words could I use to describe our wedding at The Headfort Arms Hotel? Outstanding, impeccable, homely, magical, and loving. I say loving because they treated us like we were family, nothing was too much effort, no detail was left to chance, our wedding day, it felt, was the most important

wedding they had ever had. We got married the day the country came to a stand still with blizzards of snow and with storm Emma hammering the country. We knew we would not get through the country roads to get to our church so the the hotel quickly stepped in to arrange our beautiful ceremony with a stunning backdrop of snow. All the staff went above and beyond to get to work by any means necessary, even though the country was told to stay at home and stay indoors. The wedding coordinators Edel and Joanne, kept me calm and relaxed all day as we waited to see if our guests would make it to us. They made decisions behind the scenes to save us worrying, it felt like they scooped us up and landed us in our fairytale wedding because even though the day started with us losing our church wedding, hairdresser, makeup artist, church singer, some of our guests and our wedding band, we ended up having the best day of our lives, one hell of a party and a day that our guests still talk about every time we meet them. I know one thing for sure, if we had booked our wedding elsewhere we would not have gotten married on 2nd March 2018 because it would have been too much trouble. The Headfort Arms cared too much to let that day beat us and because of them we have the most magical, outstanding, impeccable and loving memories of our wedding day.

What can I say about the headfort arms we knew as soon as we walked in to the lounge that we wanted our wedding here. When we 1st walked in to book our wedding we met with Olivia she was very professional, friendly and welcoming. When we told her we wanted to have a themed wedding Olivia was only

delighted to accomodate and gave us some ideas.
We met Edel our wedding coordinator a couple of months later, she was just amazing. The week of the wedding we met Edel to drop off all themed stuff and she help Invision were to put everything. I left that to Edel because I could see she had a vision. The night before the wedding Edel sent me pictures and a video of the room done up. It was exactly what we wanted and more there was tears of happiness. Edels attention to detail and vision I could not fault. Anything we asked nothing was too much and also Edel threw in some extras.
The day of the wedding was just magical and more then we could have asked for. We really felt like royalty. We were looked after by Jo and Olivia for the day. Everybody was so impressed by the service and the food. Alot of people said that they felt very relaxed in the atmosphere of the headfort arms even when eating their meal it wasn't rushed.
Our wedding at the headfort arms was truly amazing we will never forget the hospitality and kindness that was shown to us every time we called into the headfort arms. The headfort arms is more then a hotel because its family run it's a very warm homely feel to it and that's how we felt. If we could do it all again we would and we would choose the headfort arms everytime. I could write more but I'm running out of letters!
Thank you so much Edel, Olivia and Jo for the most amazing and important day of our lives. We will be forever greatful and we will be out to visit yous soon xxx

The Headfort Arms Hotel was amazing for our Wedding day. From the minute we booked it, right through to the weeks after the big day, the staff could not have done more to make it special. The hotel was a pleasure to deal with through all the planning, they made it stress free and we had the best day

thanks to all the staff.
Our wedding co-coordinator Edel was so helpful every step of the way, advising us on different elements and things we never thought of. We went with the package deal which was unbelievable, Edel organised the suppliers and it took a huge stress off.
All our guests had a brilliant day and raved about the amazing food. The menu was so flexible for all guests, and we were so confident in the food which was a huge stress off our minds.
The venue was perfect with the lovely big garden out the back, which allowed us to have our photographs taken there which saved so much time and we could greet our guests for longer which was great.
I can't say it enough, the amazing day we had, from the food, the venue, suppliers and most of all the friendly and very obliging staff. If i was to do it all again I wouldn't look anywhere else. This hotel is top class and the food is top quality and I will be a regular customer to the restaurant.

I cannot recommend the headfort enough. They went above and beyond to cater for our special day.
The meal and wine was delicious. Over a year later our friends and family are still commenting what a great day they had.
