I just wanted to say a big thanks to Frances and her amazing team of staff at the Raheen woods hotel. We had an amazing wedding a day to treasure for the rest of our lives.
The venue was perfect to host our special day. The ceremony room had fab décor and had a relaxed feeling that put us at ease

as soon as we entered the room. Our guests loved the food and felt at home straight away. We would recommended the Raheen Woods Hotel to any couples getting married they will not be disappointed.

We got married 3/8/19 and from the day we paid our deposit last June every single member of staff we have dealt with has been nothing but professional, helpful and absolutely brilliant in every way. Anytime of the day we emailed for anything a member of staff was always there to help. Frances &

Oisin were an absolute dream and we would have been lost without them by our side, not to mention the owner Lester, what a gentleman. We can not recommend this hotel enough, whatever your needs you will be looked after! The function room was OUT OF THIS WORLD and we still have people texting us about how much they enjoyed the meal. Everything was top notch. So on that note thank you to The Raheen Woods Hotel for making our wedding day so special, you are a fantastic bunch.

We went to our friends wedding in the Raheen Woods a couple of years before we got engaged and left saying if we ever were to get married that would be the place for us. When we did get engaged we went into the hotel to pick up a brochure and ended up receiving a tour from Lester. He is a lovely

gentleman, he will have you laughing at his stores and feeling very much at home. We later met Frances and her team at a wedding fair and actually scheduled a proper visit where we again met Lester. It was a number of weeks in the difference and he still remembered meeting us. From the moment we went to our friends wedding to now, well after having our own wedding in Raheen Woods, we would recommend this hotel to as many people as we could. Every staff member there is so friendly and down to earth, you can have great craic with them, it feels like you are over at relatives for tea while still receiving an outstanding service. The Raheen Woods is constantly striving to improve on their fantastic quality and so we decided that we did not what to see what the reception or function room was planned to look like on the day of our wedding. There was never a worry felt in leaving it in Frances capable hands as she is an absolute gem, who always has a smile on her face and some fantastic advice you would not even think off...(our families are still raving about the ice cream outside the church). On the day we were completely blown away by the rooms. They were absolutely stunning. We received a lot of complements on how the rooms looked and not to mention the food and wines... sadly we had to tell everyone that not a single thing was done by us.. the decor was all supplied by the hotel and it was amazing. We went with the house wines suggested by Frances and Lester and have never looked back, when we pop in for dinner the odd weekend we still order the same drink as it is some of the best wine we have tasted. Thank you very much from the bottom of our hearts for being yourselves.

We met Oisin Nevin on the 7th October 2018 after a friend told us we just had to check out the Raheen Woods Hotel as a possible venue for our upcoming wedding. The second we walked through the door we were greeted with a smile and a friendly face. We briefly explained what we wanted and without

hesitation or delay we were directed to a Mr Oisin Nevin. Oisin asked us what our dream day looked like, no matter how simple or extravagant, he assured us he could help us.
We were shown to the ballroom/ceremony room and I was immediately struck by the hotels amazing decor and attention to detail, in every aspect. We were given copious amounts of information, more than any other establishment we had visited since becoming engaged. We left with smiles on our faces and there and then decided it was definitely the place we wanted to marry. From there on we worked with Frances Doyle together with Oisin and to say they were helpful and cooperative and informative wouldn’t do them justice. No request was was too big, no email was unanswered no call was missed. They were unbelievably accessible and always available to give me the best advice or answer any query I had . I Knew we were in good hands for our big day. On the day itself we were blown away, they literally brought our dreams to life, I didn’t have to think about a single thing, not one, as they had everything under control. Frances the life saver was not only my coordinator for the day she became my fourth bridesmaid, my stand in child minder, my photographers assistant , my relative wrangler and 100 other things all while keeping the day running smoothly and retaining a smile on her face like it was nothing, I genuinely don’t know how she does it but she deserves all the recognition for her amazing work, they both do. Oisin I soon learned ran the smoothest sailing ship when it came time to our reception, the staff at the Raheen Woods Hotel are like no other I’ve encountered. Each and every guest at our wedding commented on how they couldn’t do enough for them as they glided around the ballroom. Oisin and Francis made sure we were at ease and relaxed 100% of the time and our two girls who were our flower girls were made to feel like princesses. I would highly recommend Raheen Woods Hotel to any future bride and groom, but I recommend Oisin and Frances more if that’s even possible. We were incredibly lucky to have them as our guides on this momentous occasion and I’m proud to call myself a Raheen Woods Hotel Bride.

We had the most amazing day at our wedding in the Raheen Woods hotel. We can not recommend them enough as a wedding venue. Frances and all the hotel staff were incredible and looked after us and everything we needed and asked for. The whole day was a magical experience.

We cannot recommend Frances and all the wonderful staff at the raheen woods enough. From the first day we met with her Frances was just a pleasure to deal with. She was so helpful in planning our wedding and was always on the other end of the phone. She thought of all the small bits we had

We cannot say one bad thing about this beautiful hotel and Frances and all the team.

the day of our wedding and everything ran like clockwork.Trevor was at a friend's wedding in this hotel a few years previous and raved about the food and the wedding he attended and always said he'd love our wedding to be there because it was local and the amazing food and a fabulous hotel ...when we went for our wedding tasting I could see what Trevor meant the food as unbelievable and the attention to detail was second to none...when it came down to it we wanted a wedding where everyone of our friends relations and family could come to nearby and especially because my mum had been so sick the year previous I wanted her to be there as she wouldn't of being able to travel long distance where we had originally thought we might get married but I have to say I'm so glad Trevor picked this hotel for our wedding it was so special to have everyone close and special to us there and there is something special about the Raheen Woods we felt from the start...a hotel is a hotel but the staff makes it and we picked Oisin and Frances as our wedding coordinators ... Oisin gave us great advice ideas and is a gentleman it was lovely to deal with someone young and in the know of different wedding trends he even gave me a bottle of my favourite wine as a gift at one of our wedding meetings which I thought was a very cute touch when I was bit stressed at the wedding planning at the time and I left feeling happy and less stressed with all Oisin advice ...Frances gave us great advice on lead up to wedding day and was great for advice on the day and helped me with my dress which in fairness she didn't have to do but did anyway and gave me tips and advice on the day which made me feel relaxed

We had our wedding reception at the Raheen Woods hotel on the 14th of June. We were impressed from day one when we met Lester and he took us through everything the hotel has to offer. It certainly did not disappoint and we are so delighted we chose the Raheen Woods Hotel for our wedding

Frances, our co-ordinator was a dream to work with, nothing was too much of an ask. Leading up to the wedding she gave us very valuable advice on the little details that you wouldn't have even thought of and was brilliant on the day itself ensuring everything was perfect and we and all our guests had everything we needed.

The hotel itself is beautiful with a separate entrance and lobby exclusive to the wedding party and was very tastefully decorated for our wedding. The gardens are fabulous and the outdoor seating was welcomed on the sunny afternoon.

The food was exceptional and the service provided by Frances, Oisin and all the staff on the day was superb. They were so professional, approachable and friendly.
This has all been reiterated again and again to us by many of our wedding guests.
The bar was well staffed with experienced bartenders and a prompt service which was so important to us.

We would like to thank you for making our special day so amazing and relaxed and we highly recommend the Raheen Woods to any couple looking for the perfect venue.

lead up to our wedding very stress free. On the day of the wedding we were so relaxed as we knew France, Oisin, Pavel and the Team would look after us, our families and our friends but they exceeded our expectations. Constantly checking in with everyone to ensure they had enough to eat, their exquisite professionalism serving the top table and the friendliness of all the staff both the night of the wedding, at reception and in the breakfast room. We can't thank you enough for how much you made our day so special. Thank You, Joanne & Brian

within minutes I knew that this is where we would have our wedding day, She was so helpful and amazing in every way. We were so impressed by the service that all the staff provided to us on the lead up to our wedding day and the day itself. We never felt like just a number with the Raheen Woods, we felt that we mattered and that management and staff would bend over backwards to assist us in our planning and they did in every way possible.

The location was perfect for both families & friends. The function room itself was perfect for our number of guests (220). It was big but yet cosy and intimate and also exclusive to the rest of the hotel. Reception area is perfect with a nice bar area. The food that was served on the day was nothing but delicious. It was vey hot, tasty and great presentation. There was no table left waiting and had plenty of everything. The staff were amazing and helpful to all the kids which meant a great deal to parents. The owner Lester was going around with gravy I mean that to me speaks volumes in a business now days. We have spoken with a number of our guest since the day and everyone has raved about the friendly and professional staff and the family atmosphere they experienced throughout their stay at the Raheen Woods. Guests have even said they will book a weekend back to Raheen Woods in the summer next year with their families as they were so impressed.

I would highly recommend the Raheen Woods to any couple who are looking to get married. Frances, Oisin and Lester catered to our every need and request throughout the whole wedding process.
We wanted our day to be perfect and we set our standards high as it is one of the most important days of your lives and I can honestly say that our expectations were met.
Frances, Oisin and Lester, we are so grateful to ye for making our wedding day one of the most memorable days of our life.

From the bottom our hearts thank you so much for everything.

All our love

Amanda & Fergal Casey.
