My wife and I held our wedding reception and after-party in Kilkenny River Court Hotel in August 2021. The hotel provided excellent service. The entire team were so helpful with making sure every little detail was just perfect for the big day.

I want to make special shoutouts to Iona, Bruno,

Leticia & Jose, who went above and beyond to ensure that it was an event we will remember for the rest of our lives.

We all know how hard the hospitality industry has been hit with COVID restrictions in the last 18 months. Still, the hotel went above and beyond with accommodating our every request, even with our reduced headcount for the reception.

The reception rooms are spacious, but the team accommodated our requests to have extra couches and coffee tables brought in so that the room didn't feel empty with a 50-person wedding, and people had a more casual space to sit and talk after the dinner.

For the Afters party, we had 30 guests. The hotel closed off the room partition to make a smaller, safer space for the kids to run around in.

The food was excellent, and our guests raved all night about how amazing the food was!

The rooms are a great size. The three rooms we stayed in were a double room, the Bridal Suite and the Suite above the Bridal Suite, which were all of the highest levels of cleanliness.

We're both looking forward to revisiting the River Court in the future on our anniversaries.

Kilkenny River Court Hotel was lovely and very accommodating. The food was fabulous! But I think what really made our wedding day and indeed the whole weekend so special was the lovely staff.

We had our wedding reception at the River Court last weekend. We could not be happier with how our day went. The entire staff were joyful and went out of their way to make it the best day of our life. We would recommend to anyone thinking about having their wedding reception in Kilkenny.

I can not put in to words how amazing the staff and hotel is. We got married here on the 29th of August. We had originally booked a hotel in Wexford and the wedding was postponed in May. We were deflated and we didn't see how it could happen. When I rang this hotel, they had such a detailed plan in

place on how to manage the restrictions and guidelines and still celebrate our day. We can not commend them enough for the plan and procedures that they have in place. Every hotel should follow this hotels example. They contacted us through every change in guideline and they put a plan in place to manage it. The lead up to the wedding day was difficult for us but once we got in to this hotel, they made it so special for us and we had the most perfect wedding day experience with 24 of our closest family and friends. The attention to detail and responsiveness was brilliant. The food for the wedding and barbeque on the 2nd day was out of this world. The bridal suite is just breathtaking with views of the castle. The bar staff, cleaning staff, wedding staff all made the experience amazing. They could not do enough for us! The hotel is set next to the castle and it feels like you are on holidays when you sit out on their balcony or in the courtyard room, overlooking the castle. We believe that it worked out for the better in the end as we got to experience this amazing hotel and we will for very be thankful to the staff for making our weekend amazing. Well done to all the staff for pulling together during COVID-19 and developing a detailed plan to respond to it. I would recommend this place to any bride and groom or to anyone visiting Kilkenny

The hotel and staff are amazing. We had originally booked our wedding for a hotel in Wexford. It was postponed due to COVID. We felt so deflated and upset but then I rang this hotel and within minutes they had the perfect day planned for us, while following all guidelines. We could not believe that

it was possible. The restrictions changed a number of times in the run up to the day but the hotel had plans in place to manage all restrictions. We never had to worry. They created the most perfect day for us with the most perfect backdrop and they treated us like royalty. We are so glad that our wedding day was at this hotel in the end. It is funny how it all worked out. This place will be forever special to us and our family and friends can not wait to come back to the hotel to speak to the staff and enjoy the amazing food and atmosphere in the hotel.

was organised within three months and that was possible because of the professionalism, efficiency,friendliness and excellent co-ordination from Iona. The Rivercourt was a dream to deal with nothing was too much trouble and it was all about want we wanted on our day and they delivered that 100% on our wedding day. All the staff in the hotel were extremely professional, the food was gorgeous and the service was excellent. The setting was magical with the castle lit up at night looking into the ballroom. All of our guest commented on the service, food and the hotel. Our bridal suite was beautifully with an amazing view of the castle. It really was the perfect venue for our wedding and an excellent service was provided. We really were looked after so well and made to feel so special on our special day. I would encourage any couple looking for a wedding venue to strongly consider having their wedding in the Rivercourt hotel.

We were so lucky to be able to have our wedding in this beautiful place. On the nice day there is no better place for wedding in Kilkenny and probably not many in Ireland! From the very beginning we felt massive support from RC event team. No task was to big, no question was left an answered, we

were receiving phone calls from Sinead or Marcela asking about our preparations which was a lovely touch and made us feel a little bit more special???? We loved everything about the day, food was great, service was stunning, and just an option of sitting out looking at the castle was more than enough to confirm we made the best choice! Special thanks to Sinead, as an unexperienced wedding planners we had no idea where to start, what to do next, what's very important, what a bit less, but Sinead made everything so easy for us that organising this wedding was a piece of cake! I would highly recommend this venue to every couple thinking about the wedding in this beautiful city. Kind regards Basia&Ray

We had our wedding in The Rivercourt Hotel in September and loved every minute of it. We booked our wedding with the hotel early 2018 and from the booking up to the wedding day the hotel helped us with so many parts of our planning. Anytime we had a question Marcella was there to help us out and

offer advice, and once we had to start confirming the finer details closer to the day Marcella was again a huge help. Everything we asked for was looked after and the service we received from the hotel on the day was fantastic. Natalia was absolutely brilliant too. She put us completely at ease from the minute we arrived at the hotel, she ensured the day ran smoothly and did everything she possibly could to look after us and our guests. We had been concerned about some of time constraints on the day but Natalia kept us updated on everything, put us at ease and ensured we had the time we needed. We were so thankful for her on the day and really appreciate everything she did for us. We would 100% recommend The Rivercourt Hotel to anyone planning a wedding, it was the perfect setting for our day and the staff there really looked after us. So many of our guests have commented how much they loved the hotel and everything they offered on the day.

We have giving 5 stars on every option and if we could give more we would. Kilkenny Rivercourt team made our day prefect from the first time we saw this hotel we knew it was for us. Marcella and her team are extremely professional and any queries or worries were always answered without hesitation.

As the day approached we were in contact with Marcella who was always on the other end of the phone to reassure us. On the day itself the service was second to none. Every table was serve at a quick speed which meant NO table was waiting on food which was a big thing for us after being to weddings were tables near back might not have being served by time other tables were ready for mains. Natalia and Dee on the day ensured everything went smoothly and we or our guests couldn't fault anything. Location wise it is the perfect location and if anyone is thinking of Kilkenny as a place they would like to have there big day then look no further the Kilkenny Rivercourt. Food was amazing and there was no shortages all of our guest have complimented the food and the service. If we could do it all again there isn't 1 thing we would change about our venue

Wow! We cannot fault the Rivercourt. We were married on a grey, miserable Sunday in September and I thought if we couldn’t get married outside I’d be upset but everything was perfect. The staff couldn’t do enough for us from the moment we arrived the day before to the day we left. There was a

wedding on the day before ours but you wouldn’t have guessed with the service we received. A special mention for Marcella, she helped us with every query we had and is such a lovely person to deal with. Natalia on the day made us feel so calm, I’m sure she wasn’t!! Brian & Catherine too were so helpful, nothing was too much trouble. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Rivercourt to couples for their wedding, we’re from Dublin too, it’s just over an hour away. We haven’t heard one negative thing about the day.

We had our wedding reception in the Kilkenny Rivercourt Hotel in July. Everything was fabulous - the food, drink, staff, rooms and the venue itself. The terrace was a great location for our drinks reception and the Marshall suite was beautiful overlooking the castle. We also had a BBQ on the terrace

the day after our wedding for close family and friends and it went smoothly. We had our own private area and there was a great selection of food. As a bride you can be a bit nervous about everything running smoothly but Catherine and Dee made sure everything went smoothly on the day. We dealt with Marcella and Iona in the run up to the wedding and both were easy to deal with and dedicated to their jobs. We wanted to put our own personality into the wedding and there was no hassle with our requests.

We had our ceremony and reception at the Rivercourt Hotel in Kilkenny in August of this year and we had a fabulous day. The ceremony outside on the terrace was beautiful and everything ran like clockwork under Nathalya’s watchful eye. The food at the reception was delicious - we had the Asian

Chicken/Tofu salad for starters and a choice of Roast Cauliflower and Goats Cheese, Sea Bream and Prawns or Roast Chicken for mains and the assiette for dessert. Throughout the day the service was exceptional and the next day we had a BBQ on the terrace which was a lovely way to relax with some of the guests who were staying around. We live in the UK so we organised the wedding mostly via email and the hotel staff from the events team to the reception and bar staff were very helpful and friendly
