Hi, This is where I had my wedding. We had 64 for meal, and an extra 80 maybe for afters. Cannot fault them on anything - FANTASTIC value, food was excellent, everyone commented on it afterwards. Rooms were lovely, much nicer than I expected, plus we took over the whole hotel, there was basically just us there, no non guests. Menu tasting consisted of a complete meal for 4, no charge. There was no corkage either, and no charge for evening food. PM me if you need any info! :wv

For a small wedding i would think its a great place. Not too big at all. Id go for it as there rates seem very good

The Stanville isn't a bad venue at all in that it's out of the way and outside the hustle and bustle of Wexford...BUT....I wouldn't rate it too much and that's just a personal choice. Not the function room anyways. I was at a wedding there and the tables looked okay but the old red ordinary chairs didn't set the place off right and they had balloons strung over each table that looked really cheap looking. The food is very good and the prices are very reasonable so if that's your top priority, maybe go for it so!!

I often have dinner there when i am at home and its really good. You wont get better value for the wedding so you could aford to decorate the room more or get chair covers and it would still be cheaper than other hotels in Wexford.

Actually that's not a bad idea at all....the main thing is the value for money and the good food so you're onto a winner already. For a few hundred extra you can get the covers and a few other bits and bobs...!

Never been to a wedding there. However, we stayed there and had a bad experience. (Check out tripadvisor.) On the other hand, check out the amount of people that have had fantastic experiences there. Hard one.
