We would like to say a special thank you to you and your team.

Where to start! The day was magical from start to finish. From the first time, we stepped into the hotel for the wedding fair, we were made to feel so welcome and wanted, like one of the family.
The family feel and personal touch is

truly felt at the Headfort Arms and does not disappear, even after the wedding is over. We got the pleasure of experiencing two wedding coordinators, as with Covid restrictions we had a small wedding and then a bigger celebration on our 1st anniversary and both were a pleasure to work with. Edel is like a fairy godmother who looks after everything effortlessly, nothing is too big or too small. Her attention to detail makes you truly feel at ease. Megan is so genuinely happy and excited for you as a couple to have the best day of your life, she puts all that passion into creating a lovely feeling for the day and makes sure each and every one of our guests are well looked after.

Both coordinators pulled out all the stops to make the day perfect for us and looked after all our needs on a personal basis. They cater for your packages so it is uniquely yours and are like a friend throughout the process.In a time that was harder than most, with new challenges every week, the entire staff, including the Duff family & Megan, kept us up to date through all the stages to reassure us and offer alternative ways to make our day special.

The hotel looked amazing on both occasions and really felt personalized to us. We were treated like royalty for the entire time we were there, as were our guests. The food is 5 stars and all locally sourced from the Boyne Valley You can see that their passion for quality produce really shines through in their food, which was outstanding for all dietary requirements, including vegetarian and vegan. There were lovely surprises throughout the day from the hotel, that shows how much they value every guest, and that you are not just one of many.

wedding on Thu, 30th of December, 2021
We got married in Headfort Arms Hotel on the 30th December 2021 and the staff were all absolutely amazing. Edel was brilliant, even though she was off during this time, she checked in with me regularly to ensure everything was ok and helped me along during all my planning stages. Then there was our

wedding planner Megan! Megan was my sidekick and helped me with everything from start to finish, she was just incredible and went above and beyond for us.

Getting married during covid was not easy, first, we had to cut our numbers a few days before and then we had a lot of people that couldn’t attend our big day including some of our suppliers. When we came out of our ceremony we were told our band had also just cancelled on us but before we even had time to panic Megan and the team had already organised another band which were absolutely amazing!!
I cannot thank Megan enough for all she did for us, everything we needed or wanted was never a problem. She is a credit to the Headfort.

The staff were so helpful and so friendly, not just to us but to all of our guests on the day aswell.
I would highly recommend Headfort Arms Hotel. Thank you so much to Megan and all the team for making our day so special

Both myself and Kenneth want to say how amazing the staff are at their job. From the moment we had the chat about organising our wedding till the wedding day. The staff truly put their heart and soul into making sure our day was amazing and you passed with flying colours. Natalie on reception made

sure all our guests had a room, she is also amazing. The set-up of the ceremony was absolutely fantastic, the service from the waitress and bar staff were top class. We still can’t believe we are nearly 3 months married. We would 100 percent get married again in the Headfort Arms Hotel with the same wedding coordinator and staff. We cannot find a single fault off them.

Megan is such a credit to the Headfort team and we definitely will call in for lunch to have the chats with her. We had the best wedding day because of her.

wedding on Fri, 27th of August, 2021
My husband and I had our wedding reception in the Headfort Arms on 27th August 2021. We originally meant to get married there the previous year but due to restrictions, we had to push it out three times. As any bride will know, postponing your wedding is done with a heavy heart and beyond stressful

trying to move suppliers etc but Edel in the Headfort Arms made transitioning to new dates seamless for us and went above and beyond to accommodate us.

Edel was going on maternity leave close to our date so she touched base with us beforehand and ensured us we would be well looked after in her absence, which we were. The amazing Megan took over and from the moment we met her, we knew we could relax in the run-up to the big day as she was so tuned into our plans for the day and knew what our vision was. She made the planning so enjoyable for us and nothing was too big of an ask. We could feel her genuine excitement to be a part of our day also which made it even more special.

The day itself was perfect from start to finish. Luckily we got amazing weather, the garden was dressed beautifully, the prosecco was flowing and the canapes went down a treat. The atmosphere was electric and the team couldn’t do enough for us. The venue itself is truly beautiful and the gardens are out of this world.

Moving onto the dinner, our guests were raving about the food and couldn’t believe the taste and quality as were expecting the usual wedding food which can be basic at best. On the day itself, Megan was by our sides exactly what we needed but never intrusive. She went above and beyond and we couldn’t have asked for a better day. It was the little details like a text message on the morning of the wedding (and from Edel too while off on maternity leave, just so nice). The level of care that you just don’t expect these days and I was so emotional in a good way because of this.

We had a two day celebration and had a BBQ with a DJ on the second day and again Megan and all the staff at the adjoining Keltic bar went above and beyond for us. The food was beautiful and our guests were raving about this too.

The whole weekend had such a personable feel to it, all of the staff treated us and our guests like family and it didn’t go unnoticed. The hotel itself is beautiful and oozing with the atmosphere. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great wedding venue. The attention and level of care are amazing and you won’t regret it. My husband and I are already looking forward to visiting on our first anniversary

wedding is over. Edel is like a fairy godmother who looks after everything effortlessly, nothing is too big or too small, her attention to detail makes you truly feel at ease. In a year that was harder than most with new challenges every week, the entire staff, including the duff family themselves, kept us up to date through all the stages to reassure us and offer alternative ways to make our day special. The hotel looked amazing on the day and really felt personalised to us, we were treated like royalty for the entire time we were there, as were our guests.

There were lovely surprises throughout the day from the hotel, that show how much they value every guest, you are not just one of many. I honestly cannot express enough how much we, and all our guests, loved our stay, from the beauty of the hotel, to the wonderful staff, that were like family for our stay, to the wonderful food, The Headfort is above and beyond it's 4 stars.
