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.

Apologies for the delay reviewing our wedding day but I could never think of the right things to say, so here goes. Apart from the birth of our two sons, it was simply the best day of our lives! I’m not trying to be soppy, but it honestly was without a shadow of doubt.
I’m from Liverpool and

my husband is a Dubliner. We always knew Ireland would be the best place to get married. Our friends were married in Langtons ballroom about 5 ago and we fell in love with the hotel and Kilkenny, so it a no brainer.
I thought organising a wedding in another country would be even more stressful, but Sean gave us his list of suppliers and it was so easy. The list became our bible and everyone we chose was award winning and most were married in the hotel themselves! They were all amazing and so professional and friendly.
But back to Langtons. I’m actually welling up thinking of the day. It amazes me how the team pulled everything together especially when there was another wedding in the ballroom without a hitch. We had the Set theatre for the ceremony, meal and party till 4am. It was absolutely beautiful. Everything was to plan. Everything was perfect, which made me so calm and relaxed walking up the aisle (not like my Dad!).
All of the guests loved it too which I was worried about especially as everyone had to travel to get there.
We had a BBQ the next day in Bridie’s too. Again, it was amazing and guests loved it (and some of our guests are really hard to please!).
The staff, service, food, accommodation and venue are just out of this world. We would do it all again in a heartbeat. You cannot go wrong choosing Langtons for your wedding. They will help you make your dreams come true so effortlessly. It will be best the decision you ever make, well after picking your partner!

When we decided to get married in kilkenny, we always knew it would be in lantgons. We both have fond memories of nights out with friends and dinners shared with family over the years. Our first meeting with Sean Read really cemented it home. He listened to our somewhat out there ideas and offered

amazing advice in how best to see them come to life. The entire langtons team could not have been more of a help on our special day, they genuinely took all the worry out of a nerve filled day.
From the stunning decorating of the ceremony in the set, to the intimate setting of our dinner in the ballroom and finally to end our night back in the set, transformed into a perfect scene. The langton team made it all seem effortless with Sean coordinating it all.

Our guests said it was one of the most relaxed and enjoyable weddings they've been a part of, so we would genuinely like to thank everyone at langtons who made our day possible, stressfree and unforgettable.

Warmest wishes and kindest regards,

Sophie and Mike.

From the moment we set foot in the hotel we were impressed by the smooth running machine which is Langtons. Our biggest obstacle was the requirement of Halal food options as well as an authentic Indian dish as main. For some venues in Dublin an impossible task this wasn't of any concern for the

incredible Master of Weddings called Sean. To our absolute delight it took only minutes to sort this out. For the ceremony and dinner he suggested The Set Theater and one look at it (and Langtons incredible wedding packages!) and we were sold.
The planning stage which followed was easy - Sean dealt with any query in a timely manner (does this man ever sleep?) and he suggested several vendors we where happy to go with. We trusted him completely and were not disappointed.
On a lovely day in April we finally got married. All the staff at Langtons was fantastic, always pleasant, friendly, helpful and well organized. Sean got the schedule down to a tee and conducted everyone including ourselves like a Maestro.
The Set Theater looked amazing, all in red and gold, just radiating warmth and love. Everyone was well looked after, some form of food and drinks was always around and the dinner service flawless. Everything was dealt with quickly and professionally. We could completely concentrate on ourselves and our guests, not one time we had to worry about what was going on in the background. The dancing went well into the night with plates of finger food and cake mysteriously appearing from out of nowhere. Oh what a blast we all had!
Langtons itself has wonderful features, a lovely tea room, wooden carved benches and old world decor. We even took our wedding pictures there as it was slightly drizzling and they turned out stunning as there are so many options for great shots.
We cannot thank Sean and everyone at Langtons enough for making this day a special one we will cherish as long as our marriage shall last :-)

We couldn't be happier with how our wedding went at Langton's House Hotel. From the moment we stepped in the door when we were first choosing wedding venues we were made to feel so welcome and listened to. We were very nervous about all the decisions to be made and how we would achieve everything we

wanted to on the day, but Sean reassured us every step of the way and always had an answer and advice for every question we had. Sean is almost like a personal wedding planner he is so organized and he was such a great source of calm and knowledge as we planned the day. His attention to detail is flawless.

On the day the Langton's team were spectacular. Every single moment of the day Sean, Bríd, Breda and the whole hotel handled everything perfectly and with ease - meaning we could just enjoy ourselves! They are total professionals at Langton's. Every single request we had was no problem and everything worked like clockwork.

The food was delicious and impressive too. My bride is coeliac and we had a huge number of people attending with food allergies, intolerances and who are vegan and vegetarian. Often when we attend weddings the coeliac or vegan option isn't very interesting but not so at Langton's. Everyone thought their meal was spectacular and Langton's were so attentive to every tiny detail.They accommodated everyones dietary needs and there was lots of choice and delicious food for all our guests.

Everyone who attended has said it was the best wedding ever. If we went back and did it again we wouldn't change a single detail and we are so glad we chose Langton's as our venue. Thank you so much for the fantastic memories we will have forever.
