The location and venue are just stunning, from the manicured lawns, luxurious bedrooms and beautifully restored original features, the castle is the stuff of fairytales. Management were so welcoming and very attentive and accommodating to our needs throughout the planning process.

We were lucky enough to have our drinks reception, speeches and our band play out on the patio - this was well organised by the team and made for a fabulous setting and atmosphere.

Food choice, service and quality were all fantastic and the castle now being able to offer couples a menu tasting only provides further reassurance. Breakfast in the bridal suite the following morning was also fantastic! We were able to remove the soup course from the meal which we found meant people were satisfied yet not stuffed and therefore ready to dance after the meal! The downstairs entertainment area is a gorgeous and very unique location for partying late into the night and also allows for a seamless transition from the meal into the evening entertainment. Our numbers were 160 which meant to dance floor was nicely full all night - perhaps larger numbers might struggle a little for dancing space? The kitchen area also provided a quieter space especially for some of our older guests to relax and have a chat. Our only recommendation would be to check exactly the inclusions for the drinks reception which may help you to plan and anticipate a little more though it is so hard to gauge how much people may consume especially on a warm, sunny day outdoors.

Deirdre, Nicholas and all of the team really helped us to have what we can only describe as a magical day. Since our big day we have had endless compliments regarding the venue and all of its provisions and would whole heartedly recommend this venue to anyone and everyone seeking a fairytale day.
