We had our wedding reception in the Kilkenny Ormonde on 27th August and I cannot recommend it highly enough. From the moment we first enquired about our date right through to after our wedding, Kate and all the team couldn't have been more helpful.

Everyone we met throughout our planning and on the day itself were so friendly and obliging and anything we asked was never any trouble.

From the moment we met with Deirdre and later in our wedding planning Kate we know that the Ormonde Hotel would be the best venue for our wedding. We had organised events in the past at the Ormonde Hotel in other capacities through organisations that we had been involved in and found them to be the utmost professionals and so very pleasant and facilitating to deal with and we knew that they were second to none in the running of events. Throughout the planning process Deirdre/Kate were so approachable and extremely responsive to all of our requests and did their utmost to satisfy every request that we had to the most minute detail.

by Anne on Wed, 25th November, 2015
Ormonde hotel hosted our big day and I can't thank all the staff members enough. Attention to detail is very impressive. Food justified all the compliments we have heard about it from my friends, who had their receptions in the Ormonde as well. Ballroom looked breathtaking and their bridal suite is fantastic.

by Sharon Keegan on Tue, 24th November, 2015
We want to thank Kate and all the staff members in Ormonde hotel for making our wedding day so unforgettable. We were quite busy during the wedding planning, but team was so accommodating to match our requests. We loved our wedding tasting, where we actually got to choose food options and wine to be served on the day. Mags was a lovely lady serving our top table. She was extremely friendly and nice. All the duty managers were very organized and staff were so welcoming to each of our guests. I will recommend this venue to all the future Mr and Mrs.
by Sarah & Paul on Tue, 24th November, 2015
We had our wedding in the Ormonde Hotel and I can't fault a single thing about it - food, staff, atmosphere, professionalism - absolutely everything was a top notch. We had extensive 6 course menu with choices. Our guests were blown away with how amazing the food was and what a great selection they have offered us. One of the best aspects of it was kids club, where children were looked after by the babysitter. They even organized bouncy castle and games for them to be entertained. We received a goodie bag including anniversary voucher and a dinner. We can't wait to be back.
by Dave& Christine on Tue, 24th November, 2015
Our fantastic wedding took place in Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel. We planned it all from overseas, but with their team, nothing was a trouble. On the day we couldn't believe how beautiful the ballroom was. Food was divine and service second to none. Staff, at the desk, in the bar, in the ballroom, were brilliant. Massive thanks to Kate and Stephen, who were there all the time and did super job with our entrance song, which was so special to us.
by Michelle Connolly on Tue, 24th November, 2015
Where to begin with the praise. Second we stepped in the hotel, we knew it was the venue for us. We were blown away by the professionalism and kindness of staff members. After booking the wedding we would pop in on several occasions. We always felt just as welcomed as the first time before we confirmed our date. We went to few hotels and looked around. Many of them offer great service and packages, but Ormonde does have a special vibe about it. All our requests were taken on board without any questions and ballroom looked absolutely stunning on the day. Special thanks goes to Kate, our wedding planner, who went extra mile each time and made sure our day ... Read more

We want to thank all of the team in Kilkenny Ormonde hotel for making our day so memorable. We originally booked with Louise, who was so welcoming and accommodating. Afterwards, it was Kate who planned our wedding. Nothing seemed like a trouble for her and she was very helpful all along, as we were not one of the most organized couple. Ballroom looked stunning and staff were extremely efficient. Mags, a lady who served out table was extremely friendly and made us laugh, especially when we were so nervous through our speeches. Food was amazing, portions were evry generous and presentation was exquisite. Would highly recommend this venue and looking forward to go back for our first year;s anniversary.

What can we say. From the moment we met Deirdre on our first visit to the moment we left the day after our wedding the team at Kilkenny Ormonde were amazing. The level of detail they put in to every aspect of the day is superb. All the emails and calls back and forth along the way just helped to strengthen the relationship and by the end of the experience we felt the staff were like family. Mags and Sinead on the day were fantastic and Louise and Deirdre went above and beyond throughout. Thank you to each and everyone for helping to make our day so special. People are still talking about it almost 7 months later!!!!!!!!!!

Genuinely couldn't praise this hotel enough. Management and staff went above and beyond in making our day so special. We had narrowed down a few hotels and were so happy we ended up picking Kilkenny Ormonde. Everything was smooth flowing from the get go, nothing was too much to ask. The ballroom was absolutely stunning and perfect without going over the top! They even put a kids club with bouncy castle on for us last minute which was an incredible gesture. The food was out of this world and everyone complimented it, a few friends have even booked their wedding there since. A superb hotel in every aspect, one very very happy bride& groom!!!

We celebrated our Civil Partnership at The Kilkenny Ormonde at the end of August and have nothing but praise for each and every one of the team there. From start to finish they were over and above and we never once felt like a 'conveyor belt couple' going for a conventional hotel wedding, which was our main concern. The central location with all the sights and shopping is excellent for visitors from outside the city. Being so close to everything was a huge help for the last minute running around (and be assured there will always be something) The leisure centre/swimming pool is a great hit for any families staying at the hotel to share in the big day. Highly ... Read more

Now that it's all over, myself and Aidan just want to express our appreciation to all the staff. Planning a wedding can be quite stressful, trying to think of all the details and trying to please a multitude of people. One of the best decisions myself and my Aidan made was choosing the The Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel as our wedding reception venue. From our first meeting to the Wedding Day itself, our wedding coordinator, Louise, was incredibly helpful and friendly and truly made us feel special. Deirdre made sure everything flowed seamlessly on our wedding day and made us feel very special. While I thought I wasn't a very fussy bride, I had many last minute wishes and desires, most ...

Just a quick note now that the big day is all over. We had a fabulous day here at the ormonde hotel for our wedding in September. The run up was quiet hectic and every phone call (and there was a lot) to Louise was never an issue. She was fabulous and couldn't do enough for us. We had a lot of extras we had ordered for the day from sweet carts,fiddle player for the meal,caricature, photo booth and the band/dj, Louise made sure we didn't need to worry. Then on the day it ran so smooth from the minute we entered the hotel we were just so relaxed. Our waitress (mags) introduced herself to us in the reception and ... Read more

Both myself and james were so happy we picked the ormonde hotel for our wedding last august we would have no doubt in recommending them.

Thanks so much guys for our very special day the rain didnt ruin the day all our professional photos taken in the hotel turned out fantastic :) fantastic venue and ... Read more

Hi Deirdre I just want to say a huge thank you to you and all the staff at Kilkenny Ormonde for making our wedding such a success. Thanks so much to Louise for all of her help along the way. Louise was always a pleasure to deal with. Her enthusiasm throughout the process was wonderful and her upbeat cheerful personality was a joy to deal with. I also have to commend the ladies at reception whom have always been great to deal with and have always been utterly professional and friendly. Thank you Deirdre for putting the final touches together in such a perfect manner. I left the hotel the day before the wedding safe in the knowledge that you ... Read more

To anyone looking for the perfect wedding venue which won't cost the earth but gives you a five star service look no further than the Ormonde Hotel, Kilkenny. Myself and my husband had a New Years Wedding at this venue and it was perfect from the moment we started looking at venues. We ended up in the Ormonde by accident as neither of us had heard of it but found a review online about it so we said we would check it out, we were instantly won over by Deirdre the Wedding co-ordinator in the hotel, she put us at ease straight away and really listened to what we wanted for our wedding then to top it off offerred us ...

We got married on the 6/9/2014 and had our wedding reception in the Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel. We couldn't have picked a better venue! Louise the wedding planner was brilliant from the time we met her and honestly we would have been lost without her! The management & staff could not have done more for us on the day and everyone one of our quests complimented the food & service on the day! We would highly recommend this venue for your wedding as they will meet your expectations and more! !! Niamh & Caolainn Murphy xxx

We had our wedding at the Ormonde Hotel in December 2013, it was a wonderful experience and an excellent hotel to deal with from start to finish. From the moment we went in the staff were nothing short of amazing. We have a young son and every time we recieved an email or a phone call from the hotel they would ask after him and also they made the day so special for him. Organising an experienced babysitter who played games with him, I could pop up and see him and he could come down, this for any parent is brilliant. Everything we asked for was done, the room looked so wonderful and everyone was delighted with the service and ... Read more

From the moment I entered The Ormonde Hotel I knew it was where I wanted to hold our wedding and I’m so glad we made that choice. The hotel is so well run, ballroom was beautiful, food was top notch but what really makes the hotel special is the staff. Each and every one of them was an absolute pleasure to deal with and the service was excellent. Special mention to Louise who was so friendly, professional and helpful in the run up to the big day! I felt that she really understood what type of day we wanted and really captured the ideas that we had for our wedding perfectly. Thanks also to Sinead who was my savior on ... Read more

If we had it to do again....we wouldn't change a thing! The wedding team were a joy to deal with from the very first day we met them (about 18 months before our wedding date) and we were made to feel relaxed and reassured at every point. The day itself was the fantastic, the room was decorated lovely, service was excellent, food was delicious and we wish we could do it all again! We couldn't recommend the Kilkenny Ormonde highly enough.

Our wedding at the Ormonde Hotel, Kilkenny was the most wonderful experience. The staff there, especially Sinead, went over and beyond what we expected. When we saw the room at the wedding fair we really loved it, but when it came to our wedding day and we walked into the reception room, we were blown away. Every little detail was seen to, it looked beautiful. Also, the guests at our wedding were so impressed with the food and the service (especially when they came around again with more meat!!). We really and truly can't recommend the Ormonde enough. It was a wonderful experience that we will remember forever.

We had our wedding in The Ormonde Hotel in Sept 2013, from the day we went in to view the function room, we both agreed that this would be our venue for our wedding reception. Deirdre the events manager was fantastic to deal with and goes over & above to help you with the organisation of your wedding day. Louise also joined the staff in the weeks leading up to our wedding and is also a great asset to Kilkenny Ormonde. We had made several changes to the table plan on the week leading up to the wedding & on our wedding day, the table plan was perfect which shows the attention to detail that is given by the staff. ...

We had a fantastic wedding day in the Ormonde Hotel. Colin, Deirdre and Louise all went to great lengths to make our day a very memorable one. Between them they created a stunning ballroom which had both an intimate and relaxed atmosphere - exactly what we asked for! The level of professionalism and attention to detail was second to none. We would like to extend our thanks to the bar staff and waiters/waitresses who, although very busy, were helpful and courteous at all times. We would also like to extend our thanks to the chef and his kitchen staff for preparing such a splendid meal. We will truly cherish our experience and remember every minute of it. Once again, thank ... Read more

We celebrated our wedding with the Ormonde on Easter weekend in 2013. We had the most amazing experience overall. Every detail was taken care of, the food was out of this world, and the staff could not have been friendlier. We had a lot of international guests from all over the world for our big day and they all shared in the same experience and service, something which they all took home with them. The facilities are second to none, and the location is within walking distance of every convenience. I would not hesitate in recommending the Ormonde for a wedding venue, or venue for any other occasion or get way for that matter!
by Mary Purcell on Tue, 3rd June, 2014
I can only describe the service and facilities at the Ormonde Hotel Kilkenny as beyond fantastic for our wedding last year. From the fist meeting with the planner right through every detail on the day; we can definitely say that our experience exceled our expectations completely. Our friends and family are still talking about the food and the great weekend they had staying in the Ormonde. The menu choices and wine choices were definitely the best in Kilkenny. For us (and we looked at a number of Kilkenny venues) the Ormonde offered us the best all round package. The first impression for guests is amazing – the drinks reception has a very upmarket feel and definitely sets the tone for ... Read more

Best hotel for wedding. Excellent staff, food is great and you can't beat the atmosphere just as you walk into the premises.
