Finally we get to this this!! We had our “WedFest” on the 12th Sept this year. Shout out to our amazing suppliers, vendors and our families. We had the best day of our lives and the only advice we have is to enjoy it, don’t stress and take 15 minutes out for yourselves just to sit back and

Charlie and I immediately fell in love with Kippure, it’s so close to Dublin, yet you feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere. The drive up to the estate is so picturesque filled with postcard views of the Wicklow mountains. Upon meeting the General Manager Sine´ad, it was quite clear that we

were in safe hands. She brought us around the estate informing us on the many options for our ceremony and we got a real feel for what the day would be like. What we really liked about Kippure was that in some ways it’s a blank canvas, you can really put your own stamp on your day with decor and flowers. Speaking of flowers, Kippure were amazing for us, they put so much thought and effort into the table centres and the ceremony. Our wedding party stayed in two of the houses the night before the wedding. We then had a beautiful meal in the bar and arranged breakfast to be delivered to the houses the following morning along with sandwiches in the afternoon. We initially wanted to have our ceremony outside, but alas we had a Winter wedding in the middle of June, but this didn’t affect our day, Sine´ad and her team quickly turned the smaller marquee attached to the bar into a beautiful ceremony room and it looked so beautiful, with candles and flowers everywhere. We had a trad band play at our drinks reception in the traditional Irish bar, this really got the party started. The food was really good and Kippure have plenty of options, depending on whatever budget you’re working with. Bláthnaid Treacy and Charlie Moon

Where do I start? We got married here in August. Kippure Estate was the only venue we viewed and from the moment we drove in we knew it was perfect. The place is absolutely beautiful. It's hard to believe we were 15 minutes from 'the real world' you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere in the

countryside. From start to finish Sinead and all the staff in Kippure went above and beyond for us. Nothing was too big or small of us to ask. Every detail was taken care of before we could even think of it. It was the best day of our lives and every last guest commented on how wonderful the staff and venue was. The house were lovely, the view was unreal. I cannot recommend Kippure more. To Sinead and all the staff thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You helped make the most special day of our lives even more special.” Ciara & Wesley

Hi guys, Sorry for taking so long to get in touch! We only got our photos last week and have been meaning to email to say thanks again for everything on the wedding day. Looking back and everything really was perfect for us, and couldn't have imagined it any better. The only complaint is that it

Hi Sinead, Just back from honeymoon and back to reality today! On behalf of myself and Rob, I just wanted to thank you all so so much for creating the most perfect day for us on the 28th! It was everything we had hoped for and so much more. We were blessed with the weather and were absolutely

made-up to be able to have the ceremony in the woods. The decoration and touches you put down there made it so beautiful. The marquee and lawn looked equally as beautiful. Big big thanks to Cecylia who was incredible from the minute we arrived. She was so lovely and did such an amazing job with laying our decorations and bits and pieces around. Everybody commented on how fantastic the food was (hog roast), it really was delicious !! So thank you, and to everyone else behind the scenes that made our day so special, we really couldn't have asked for anymore. Pam & Rob
