To say we enjoyed our wedding day is an understatement. We had only planned a very small casual party but ended up with 60 guests...Not a problem to the staff...The whole day was exactly what we wanted and has left us with amazing memories. All our guests left buzzing and they are still talking

about the day. The food was great and all our guest with food allergies had a wonderful day too and ate well. Riuri, the DJ recommended by the hotel was just brilliant and knew exactly how to keep everyone on the floor. (we didn't bother with a band) the hotel is quaint with lots of little areas to sit and chat and share time with friends and just perfect for a small wedding. we had the choice of the main hotel or the function room and the garden is just beautiful for fun photos. we didn't have the service outside (our choice) but were assured of lots of warm blankets if we decided on the day to change our minds. The staff are just fantastic and nothing is too much for them. It all comes very natural and every one of them work as a great team. I asked for lots of fairy lights and the staff went in first thing and put the christmas decor up especially for me. It was just perfect and with the wedding so near christmas it went down a treat with everyone and looked fantastic in the photos. So thank you Vivienne,Henry and all the wonderful staff for making our wedding day the best day ever.....

We couldn’t have found a more perfect venue for our wedding. The grounds are beautiful and we were lucky enough to get the weather to have our ceremony outside.

Vivienne, Henry and Emmet were extremely helpful and took a lot of the stress of wedding planning out. The staff are extremely helpful

The moment we drove up the driveway of The Station House we knew this was the place we were going to get married. The grounds and hotel are quaint, intimate and rustic. We found all the staff but especially Vivienne, Henry, Grainne and Emmet extremely helpful, understanding, patient, professional

and empathetic. They listened to our needs and helped us create a magical day that was tailored to our wishes. Their attention to detail was second to none. We simply couldn’t have asked for more, we had the best day of our lives and some of our guests commented that it was the best wedding they had ever attended. We are so thankful for everything.

Kevin and myself just wanted to send on a quick message to say a sincere thank you to yourself and all the staff there for the input, coordination and service for our wedding last Thursday. We appreciate all your assistance and correspondence over the last few months, and please pass on our thanks

to Henry and the staff working on the day. Henry ran the day like a complete pro and we could really relax and enjoy the day knowing we were in good hands. Feedback from our guests has been so positive about the hotel, the setting and particularly the food! We would have no hesitation recommending The Station House Hotel to anyone.
