Langton House Hotel is a family owned and run hotel, renowned for being the jewel in Kilkenny’s medieval crown. The hotel offers genuine hospitality, wonderful food, impeccable service set amidst comfortable and luxurious Four Star surroundings. Situated on the vibrant John Street in Kilkenny City Centre, we are only a moment’s walk to Kilkenny Castle, the River Nore and all the many attractions and amenities the city has to offer.

Langton House Hotel was established as a bar in 1938 by Ned and Bridie Langton, offering food, beverages and bedrooms to weary commercial travellers. Redesign and expansion continued over the next 70 years though we continue trading on the original tradition of incredible service, character and charm it is now complemented by 21st century technology and values.

With four venues to choose from within Langtons you really are spoilt for choice. Langtons Ballroom, is a spectacular room, boasting 20ft ceilings, ornate cornicing and hand painted silk wallpaper. This room is the delight of any Bride and Groom. The ballroom is a self-contained venue, complete with it’s own private bar, access to a unique garden bar and private conservatory. The Langton Ballroom is suitable for any wedding party size.

Set Theatre, created by London based designer, David Collins, is an incredible venue, one that must be seen to be appreciated. ‘Set’ is suitable for a private civil ceremony, a full wedding reception or evening reception. Adding to the delight of ‘Set’, is the private courtyard where your guests can relax and revel in this chic private space.

Harry’s Bar is suitable for a more intimate civil ceremony or wedding reception. Recently refurbished, the ambience is enhanced by subtle lighting and candlelight, adding to the magic of any special day.

The Garden Room restaurant has been recently refurbished by Gild & Cage and is an exquisite room for small, medium or large weddings. A naturally bright room, the Garden Room restaurant offers a unique experience with an ambience of sophistication and old world charm.

Bridie’s Bar and General Store is the latest venture by the Langton family and a perfect addition to any Wedding arrival reception in Set Theatre or for ‘day after get-togethers’. A stunning take on an old world bar and general store. Take a walk into the general store and pick up some old world items before you stroll through the saloon doors into the bar itself. In the bar you will be greeted by a beautiful tiled floor, superb wood panelled walls, pewter and marble counters. The next gem in this wonderful place is the exotic walled garden with ample seating in Victorian styled bus shelters.

Relax and enjoy your wedding in the knowledge that a dedicated team will be on hand offering you and your guests a highly personalized level of attention.

We cannot thank Sean and all the team at Langtons enough for giving us the most amazing wedding day. We knew the moment we saw Set and Bridies that our day would be unique and special but what really stands out for us is the dedication to detail, impeccable service and customer care from all the

staff we dealt with. Nothing was too much trouble and we always knew we were in safe hands. Everything from the food, to the atmosphere, the music and accommodation was just fantastic!

Having got engaged in September 2017, seven weeks after meeting, Liam and I set about looking for a venue for our Wedding. We had about eight possibilities on our list and having visited the first venue, Langton House Hotel, we knew this was it, offering everything we wanted and more. The Ballroom

was ideal in accomodating the 250 guests we intended inviting and the Set theatre, something very different, where our Civil Ceremony would take place. Having met with Sean Read, Banqueting Manager, Wedding Coordinator, skilled in event planning and very professional in his approach, our Wedding day was booked for 27th June, 2019. Sean and his team work very much in harmony with each other and this was very evident from our first engagement with them. We had two menu tastings organised and presented by Damien, who facilitated in tweaking the dishes to satisfy our tastes. Nothing was impossible and his aim was to please. All our needs were catered for and the help extended to us in the preparations and run up to our Wedding was exceptional. Sick and all as Sean was on our Wedding day, he was present to welcome both Liam and I, a sign of pure dedication to his Job and loyalty to us, the Wedding Couple. Lorraine, so warm and caring and Damien took over for the rest of the day, both delivering to the highest standards and facilitating our every needs. Our Wedding was magical from start to finish, thanks to the Management and staff of Langton House hotel. The guests in their entirety have said it was the best Wedding they were ever at complimenting the venue, ceremony, drinks reception, music, food, decor and staff. Our follow up day was in Bridie's bar where Damien's presence and accommodation of our needs was much appreciated. In summary, we would highly recommend Langton House Hotel to any prospective Bride and Groom where your day will be met with fab venue, food, staff, service and memories. Sincere gratitude to all involved in making our day special.

What can I say about Langton House Hotel to be honest all the words I could write would never sum up our experience or just how wonderful this place truly is. From our very first meeting with Sean we knew that was it we had to get married there the hotel literally took our breath away with such

beautiful rooms what really stood out for us was its not your typical hotel every bit of decor is so quirky and fab but fits so well together. The staff are amazing each and everyone they really couldn't have done enough and made us feel so loved and welcome. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them. The food was superb still now 5months on people are still talking about the food and how it was restaurant quality it was divine to say the least. We were so sad to leave Langtons after the best few days of our lives and because the planning can take a while it felt like we knew everyone and it was like leaving friends. I WOULD 100MILLION% recommend Langtons to any future bride and groom.

Having arrived at Langtons one day for a ‘look’ we bumped into Séan & ended up booking our wedding within an hour! For a bank holiday Friday on one of the busiest weekends in Kilkenny! .

The packages they offer are amazing, they organised our band, dj, arrival music, decorated to our colour

scheme, dietary requirements weren’t a problem with the chef & lots more.

Our arrival drinks reception was in the SET, stunning, the area is so private & drinks & canapés were plentiful. Teresa met us at the door with bubbly & kept us topped up. It’s like something from a magazine!

Our banquet was in the Ballroom, we had additional entertainment throughout our meal & along with our candy cart photo booth etc which wasn’t a problem to set up; Séan & staff took care of those suppliers Aswel all the wedding crowd. Aidan the head chef made a vegetarian/ coeliac especially for us & people are still talking about it, the food was just top class. The servers were on the ball, checking each table regularly to see if they needed anything extra but it was plentiful. The meal was so quick, no delays or long wait between courses which is what you want at a wedding! ..

Our daughter was one of 10 kids & they had been so well looked after, she refers to Langtons as ‘our wedding hotel’ & hopefully she will always have the memory.

Every couple is left feeling like they’re the only couple in the diary, nothing is too much to ask for. Having met Séan outside of the premises & knowing us on a first name basis!

Overall I can’t say enough about Langtons, from the front of house, cleaners, bar staff, to the lads moving furniture behind the scenes. 10/10 for our day, can’t fault one thing, just wish we could do it all again.

Ash, Adie & Robyn
