The Ashdown Park Hotel, Gorey, Co Wexford, is one of Wexford leading wedding venues.

It is easy to see why they have won the hearts of so many couples.  From their roof top garden, to ballroom filled with chandeliers to their courtyard oasis and contemporary restaurant its a very special venue.  

Facing you on entry to the hotel is a staircase found mostly in films with a Waterford Crystal chandelier under which many delighted couples have their pictures taken.

The passion in the Ashdown Park Hotel is to provide you with a dedicated service, personalised to your tastes, wishes and dreams and the team is phenomenal at helping you realise your dream day. 

This stylish and comfortable 4*Hotel is less than an hour from Dublin, superbly situated on the fringes of the traditional market town of Gorey on its own private grounds. 

Minutes from sandy beaches (another photo op!) golf courses (in case the groom and friends want a round before or after the big day) and many boutiques, salons, traditional pubs and cafes.  

The hotel boasts 79 beautifully appointed guest rooms tastefully decorated and offering the highest level of comfort. Special discounted rates offered to you and your party on the night of your wedding.

We are available 7 days per week and would be delighted to meet with you at your convenience to discuss your special day.

From the moment we booked our wedding (3 years in advance) all the staff were great and so helpful, no question was ever too big or too small. Catherine is absolutely amazing at her job, I never had any stress leading up to our wedding as I just knew she would have everything under control. Our day went perfectly, from the time my husband arrived to the hotel to get ready to us leaving the hotel 2 days later , all our guests still talk about the food, especially the pork belly starter. I?d love to do our wedding day all over again. I wouldn?t change a thing! The ashdown park hotel is 100% recommended for your big day. Aislinn and Jonathan Walsh
Response from Ashdown Park Hotel
Dear Aislinn and Jonathan,
Many thanks for the kind words and it was a pleasure to host your special day and the events around it. Catherine is now our hotel’s operations manager and takes wonderful care of all our guests. The pork belly is an all round winner and we have had it on the menu for 6+ years now, can’t take it off due to popular demand! When you want to renew your vows you know where we are!! Thank you so much for the recommendation and congratulations and best wishes from all the staff at The Ashdown Park Hotel.

From start to finish the hotel staff could not have been more helpful. Every phone call or query was answered without hesitation. Everything we asked for was done which even included a bedroom move for my parents on the wedding morning.
The rooftop ceremony was even more than we'd imagined and everyone commented on how beautiful the setting was.
A family member mishap with our ceremony music was quickly sorted by the wedding coordinator.
Our meal and service was second to none and everyone was satisfied and highly complimentary to the chef and staff.
Even our morning after breakfast in the restaurant with family and friends was beautiful and we were still treated like royalty.
The kids were allowed swim in the pool until whenever they liked even though we had checked out, was a huge hit.
All our bits and leftover cake was packed and ready for collection for us also.
Such a wonderful, relaxing day without anything to worry about as it was all under control and nothing was too much for the staff.
We would highly recommend The Ashdown Park Hotel as a wedding venue.

Catherine and Eimer could not have done more for us, from the run up to the big day itself. We didn't want a top table and it was great to see our vision and dream become a reality. Nothing was too much trouble. Our only problems were some small issues with guests trying to book rooms, but as soon as we brought the problems to Catherine's attention they were sorted. Our wedding was the best day of our lives and people are still talking to us about how amazing the food was. My tip if you are considering having your wedding in the Ashdown Park Hotel would be go for a lovely meal in the Rowan Tree restaurant soak up the atmosphere and visualise your guests having this wonderful food. Then make an appointment with Catherine to start your journey to your best day.

Eimear was amazing to deal with from start to finish. Hotel let us down big time. Trying to say air con was on full blast and its was unbreatable in the room. A special card went missing off the top table during turn around time but no one could seem to find out where it went where clearly it was taking when table was been broken down. No footage was checked well not that they communicated with me. Was a let down after all we had hyped up for but again eimear is the wedding expert in that hotel she is outstanding

From the day we got engaged I knew I wanted to book the Ashdown. During lock down, Catherine and Emer were so responsive to all messages. Nothing was a problem. On the day of the wedding, they kept everything running so smoothly that we could just enjoy the day. Food was AMAZING. Service was excellent. Seriously, if anyone is considering booking here... just do it. You won't be disappointed.
Response from Ashdown Park Hotel
Dear Lisa, Many thanks for the lovely feedback. We pride ourselves on the food from our own farm and it’s fantastic to get such great feedback on the food and the service. Lovely referral to other couples for us. Many thanks, congratulations and the very best wishes from all the team here at The Ashdown Park

From the start of the planning the Ashdown we?re great. No matter how many changes I made they accommodated every request , never felt I was asking too much or too often. The day itself was amazing. The room looked fab and was presented so well. Eimear was amazing in keeping me calm before I walked down the aisle.
The food was fantastic. Served quickly and efficient and tasted amazing. The only one tiny critique I have for the day was the bread rolls weren?t fresh and were awfully hard but it didn?t take from the rest of the meal. Even certain guests who had weird dietary wishes were accommodated for my the staff.
I wish to thank all the staff of the Ashdown for a fantastic day.
Response from Ashdown Park Hotel
Dear Amanda,
Many thanks for the lovely review. The bread rolls are normally cooked freshly before each wedding so I apologise if they seemed hard. Dietary requirements are par for the course now and so are never a problem. I was only too delighted to bring an air of calm to proceedings! It’s 50% of the job on the day to be honest. It’s so important that you don’t stress and you both really get to enjoy the whole day. It was lovely hosting your wedding and best wishes from the team here at The Ashdown Park.

When looking for a wedding venue we had been given a very positive review from a relative which had prompted us to look at the Ashdown Park Hotel as a likely option. From the minute we engaged with the hotel wedding team they were most helpful, as well as the general staff around the hotel. We stayed to eat lunch after and got a very nice feeling from the hotel. We left in the comfort that if we selected the venue we would be in good hands.

Upon signing up the staff were most helpful responding to queries and helping with anything we needed from them along the way. As the day came closer and we had made a few changes to parts of our day and layout to the room, again the staff had things done and/or back to us in no time without hesitation!

On the day of the wedding we were panicking slightly over a number of very last minute drop outs, the team took care of everything and took the stress away completely. From the second we set foot inside the door our guests were already signing the hotels praises. As the day progressed everything was managed extremely well. We had numerous people complementing the food (which was exceptionally nice) and how friendly the staff were. Our day ran exceptionally smoothly, the team even created the opportunity for us to take some time away from the guest as newlyweds which was greatly appreciated. We then stepped into the room, which looked immaculate, to start the festivities, again everything ran like clockwork from the food to the band and everything in between.

I could not have complemented the Ashdown Park highly enough until subsequently speaking to friends a few weeks after the wedding who had told us about the staff going out of their way to assist people arriving late and providing them with dinners. They also were also remarking on the general friendliness and warmth as both a guest at the hotel to being a guest at the wedding function. The experience of our guests has been extremely positive and has had added massively to their and our enjoyment of the day. I cannot thank everyone at the Ashdown Park Hotel enough for making our day so special!

I will sign off with, 4* hotel, 5* staff and service!

We had our day on the 23/06/19 in the Ashdown Park and it was the most amazing day. Catherine the wedding coordinator was an absolute dream to work with and no request was too big! We custom booked our rooms and reception helped us every step of the way with no hassle. Our day from. Start to finish ran so smoothly with no mishaps (thankfully!) The food on our day will be forever spoken about, our guests are still ranting about the our reception bites aswell as the meal, the meal from start to finish was delectable. We will highly recommend The Ashdown Park to everyone, thanks for an amazing day!

Amazing Hotel with amazing service, we would highly recommend the Ashdown to any couple looking to plan their wedding there. Eimear and all the staff went over and beyond to help us for our wedding day and it turned out amazing from start to finish. The Food was outstanding thanks to Val and his team and everyone could not stop talking about the Pork Belly. We had a lot of people staying over for the weekend and all our guests could not get over how friendly and helpful all the staff were for their stay. You will not be disappointed with the Ashdown .

Can?t believe it?s been nearly a year! From the initial meeting to the actual day, dealing with all the staff in the Ashdown was a pleasure. The whole process was seamless and totally stress free. Susan was brilliant and was always at the end of the phone or email to help me. Her advice on various things was a great help. After we had the venue booked, we attended a wedding fair in the hotel and got some great deals on the extra?s (cake, DJ and photo booth). On the day itself, Stephen was brilliant. We had our ceremony in the hotel and he was on hand to calm some nerves. He really is a gentleman. Everybody who was at the wedding raved about the food, both the reception canap?s and the main meal were delicious. Particularly the beef seemed to be popular, that it melted in your mouth. Being honest there is nothing I would change about the day, it really was the most magical and amazing day of my life :)

There is nothing I can fault about the Ashdown Hotel. Nothing was too much to ask for. The wedding coordinators were so helpful, even after my wedding was over when I was asking for dry cleaner recommendations for my dress etc. My emails with a million questions were efficiently replied to within a matter of hours. All of the waiters/waitresses on the day were extremely professional and friendly. The food was fantastic, the best I have ever had at any wedding venue and my guests said the same. I am so glad that I held my wedding reception there and cannot recommend it enough.

Your hotel is faultless & we will certainly recommend it. Above all the one thing that stood out from the moment we walked in was the staff. Everybody spoke as you passed or met them which is a fabulous quality. Nothing was too much trouble & the organization of breakfast was very professional. The food was excellent. The play area & pool were great too for our little girl. We wouldn?t be in the habit of writing recommendations but we feel ye all deserve our thanks at the Ashdown. Keep up the good work, we will be back.
