Ballykealey House was the most opulent exquisite and stunning wedding venue we could havse imagined. The food is michelin standard, the service is friendly yet professional and the gorgeous gardens and secret woodlands make for a spectacular backdrop for a non church wedding. The stunningly beautiful tudor room with high ceilings, coving and chandeliers holds a covid wedding party perfectly and is nothing short of magical. This venue is a hidden gem and matches its owners other gorgeous venue, Kilshane House, in every way. A perfect venue for couples from Wexford, Wicklow, Carlow, Laois and Kilkenny.

"Having looked around at other venues we knew quite quickly that Ballykealey was the perfect fit for us. We were their first wedding since reopening under new management and from the very beginning we were met with professionalism, enthusiasm and a genuine interest in making sure our big day was as we wanted it to be. Angela, the Wedding and Events Manager was super easy to deal with and her wealth of experience really shone through. Our wedding day went even better than we could have ever imagined! Being able to put our trust in Angela and her team meant that we could relax and enjoy the time with our guests knowing everything was being taken care of. The fantastic staff, the amazing food, the stunning grounds and ballroom, all made our wedding so special for both of us and our guests. We can't thank Balleykealey management and staff enough for making the day everything we wanted it to be and more!" John and Claire
