What can I say about Monika and team at Brooklodge!! They were unbelievable in the planning and lead up to our big day, so helpful and no request was too big or small, they would respond to emails within minutes answering any questions we had. Our day was perfect, we wouldn't have picked any other venue! The food was exceptional with so many compliments from guests. The service we received was top class and we honestly had the best day ever!! If you want the most perfect day, then book Brooklodge!!! Thank you all so much

The weddings team are absolutely excellent. Monika was amazing on the day and bought it all together.

We had our wedding at Brooklodge in July. I can't recommend the wedding team highly enough. Monika, Sinead & Co really made everything so easy and were always available to answer any questions and provide a solution to our special requests. All the staff on the day were incredibly attentive and we received so many compliments on the meal. A large number of our guests were Italian and they absolutely loved the venue and the food. I would recommend Brooklodge not only for the beauty of the location but also for peace of mind knowing that you will be dealing with absolute professionals.

What a beautiful place, Brooklodge was amazing, they were so easy to deal with, they made shore everything was in place for my big day. I can’t thank them enough, my guest were amazed at how beautiful it was, and the food in the strawberry tree was fantastic, and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. Can’t wait to go back! Would highly recommend anyone to take a look, and I guarantee you will fall in love with it!

Better late than never! We got married at Booklodge on 6th July 2018. From booking in January 2017 the wedding team was outstanding, always on hand to answer questions and calm nerves. We initially met with Sinead and were well looked after by her, Monika and Christine throughout our planning process. The wedding team along with the rest of the staff at Brooklodge made sure that everything we had planned was brought to fruition. We chose to have the 'Momma's table' Italian feast with our immediate family and bridal party the night before the wedding and we could not have imagined how beautiful this would be. We had the weather on our side and Monika suggested that we have the meal outside. The tables were set up outside La taverna and we actually felt like we were in Italy. The food and service was next to none and it really set us up ahead of our big day. Even now, almost 4 months on we can't believe how well our wedding day went. On the morning of the wedding myself and my bridal party had breakfast in the bridal suite as hair and make-up got to work. The morning passed in the blink of an eye and before I knew it I was walking across the wooden bridge to the chapel with Sinead on hand to fix my veil before walking down the aisle to meet my husband to be. After our spiritual ceremony, we spent time having our photos taken as our guests got to enjoy the drinks reception in Brookhall, enjoying the beautiful weather in the garden. Dinner was without a doubt the most delicious thing I have ever tasted, I could have eaten a whole plate of the potatoes! The wine was kept flowing throughout dinner and surprisingly there was some left over which was brought outside for guests to enjoy in the garden after the meal while the room was set up for dancing. We were well looked after throughout the evening (and well into the morning), especially by Niall! One of my favourite parts of the evening was the fireworks over the Wicklow mountains viewed from the garden surrounded by family and friends. The next morning we got to enjoy a leisurely breakfast with our guests as it was served until 12noon. We got to enjoy the spa facilities and spend time in the hot tub taking in all that had happened the previous day. We chose to have a second/third day of celebrations with family and friends by having a BBQ in the apple orchard. Again, we could not have imagined how wonderful this would be! There was enough food to feed an army and the pig on a spit went down a treat. We were able to have music and dancing until it got dark and we then retired into Actions pub. We are still hearing that our wedding was unbelievable with the venue and food being top of the complements. Brooklodge encompasses everything a couple should have for their special day and I can't recommend it more. I would relive the 3 days again in a heartbeat and can't wait to return to Brooklodge for a night away in the near future.

We had our wedding reception in Brooklodge this summer. Everything was amazing and so easy from the very first time I made contact with the wedding team. I dealt with Sinead & Monika for our plans & they were super. So nice & easy to work with. Anytime I got in touch with any questions or changes of mind they were back to me on the same day. We were able to build our own package taking elements from each available package. While they are on the more expensive side I definitely think you get what you pay for. Everything was perfect for our day. We didn’t feel rushed at any point nor did our guests. They were very accommodating & if anything did go wrong on the day we were unaware. Everyone at Brooklodge treated us & our guests with the highest level of service. We did a 3 day wedding there with a family meal the night before & a bbq the day after the wedding. There was another wedding on the Friday but we never felt like we were unimportant. Every member of staff we encountered knew who we were & that it was our turn the following day. I couldn’t recommend Brooklodge & Macreddin Village more and would recommend them to any of my friends & family as well as any future brides & grooms. We felt so special for the entire weekend & didn’t have to think or worry about anything. The food at our wedding was exceptional people are still telling us how much they enjoyed the meal that it was the best food they have had at a wedding.

We can’t thank Brooklodge and all the team enough for our incredible wedding day. The food was amazing and everyone had such a wonderful time. The wedding team were so accommodating and helpful in the run up and the day itself. We can’t wait to visit again and would highly recommend Brooklodge as a wedding venue!

Firstly, we thoroughly enjoyed the whole wedding weekend not just the day itself! We cannot thank you all enough for the tremendous amount of work your team put in from start to finish. Both myself and Fintan along with all of our guests were blown away with the quality of service, food and warmth from all at Brooklodge. Of course special mention goes to Eoin who helped us with all our flowers/decorations and luggage on the Friday and driving the golf cart on the Saturday. To both Monika and Sinead we will be forever in your debt for having everything so seamlessly under control behind the scenes and for calming the last minute nerves! To Pavel for his expert experience and ensuring our every whim was catered for (including some last minute pizzas on Sunday night!) and finally to Joe, General Manager whom I did not meet until we were leaving on the Monday, but I am sure he played a crucial part in running the well oiled machine that is Brooklodge. We cannot express just how happy were were with every little detail and we both feel so lucky to have chosen Brooklodge as our wedding destination. As a few people said to us, the weather for the May bank holiday weekend really was the cherry on top! We probably wouldn't have had such nice weather even if we had chosen to go to go to Spain! 100% recommended choosing Brooklodge as your wedding venue if it’s on the list for consideration-you won’t regret it!

The team at Brooklodge are experts, they are so helpful and always find a way to resolve any issues you may have and find solutions for you. They are so supportive. And the food is beyond amazing.

We had our dream wedding at Brooklodge with the help of their wonderful wedding team! I was a fairly fussy bride but every suggestion I made the team at brooklodge accommodated! The food is of an incredible standard, our guests still complement our wedding meal! We would recommend Brooklodge to any couples looking for a 5 star venue that doesn’t feel stuffy or pretentious!
Review by
Fantastic team that went above an beyond to ensure that everything was correct. The grounds, rooms and facilities are excellent. The chapel on site makes such a difference to making the day go smoothly and contributed to a relaxed atmosphere. The separate venue on site was perfect, very flexible, and the wedding breakfast was amazing. Shoulder nights in the restaurants and bar were exceptional. All of our guests were very happy. The only complaint from a couple of people was that they did not stay for longer.

From Start to Finish the Quality of Service was first class. The Wedding Preparation Team were a great help and did a fantastic job of guiding our planning..and nothing we wanted was a problem. The venue is in a stunning location and on the day itself it looked magnificent. The food was outstanding and everyone is still talking about how delicious it was....loved every minute of it!

We had our reception in Brooklodge on 28th May 2016, what an amazing day to have your wedding in one of the most amazing & tranquil places we have ever been. Your venue is amazing and we fell in love with it on our first visit. We would firstly like to thank the wedding team at Brooklodge especially Monika, Julia & Sinead for everything they have done for us over the past year, we cannot thank you all enough for all you have done, thank you for providing us with an experience that was truly magical. We would also like to give a big thanks to Pawel who was just amazing on the night making sure that everything ran smoothly, we honestly couldn’t compliment the staff enough. From the numerous visits over the past year we cannot get over the professionalism of the staff, we are very fortunate that we live close enough to pop up and just go for a walk and take in how truly magical it is there. Our wedding day was just amazing, everything we had hoped for and more, the setting was just breathtaking. We have had amazing feedback from our guests who thought the venue and food were fabulous. The day was fantastic and we wouldn’t have changed a thing, once again we can’t thank you enough for providing us with an experience that was truly magical. Many thanks Helaine & Martin x.x.x

Myself and my new husband had our wedding here on the 22nd of January this year 2016. Where do I begin? On meeting with Julia and Kim they could not have been any more apologetic or nicer over our situation and made it their mission for us to have a positive experience. (You see our original venue double booked us and with only 8 weeks to our big day informed us of the situation !!!! ) So the panic was on to find another venue!!! After meeting with these lovely women I broke down and cried with such relief, we were going to have the wedding of our dreams after all!!! The girls kept in constant contact with us. No question was too silly or request too big. The night before the wedding we were dropping down all our little bits and pieces and Pawel made sure we had something to eat, so nice!! Thank you again for that. The Day went without a hitch, thank god. Everybody raved about the food. Oh my god the food. It was just gorgeous. The Macreddin Dessert Pot was such a hit !! My aunt even mentioned to me, who had a dietary requirement that the staff looked for her at her table instead of my aunt informing the staff of her dietary requirements. It is the little things like that which makes for a better experience. The BrookHall was beautifully decorated as well. A few of my family stayed the weekend with us and we all thought the Big Day was amazing. We have to say a Big Thank You to Niall and Andrew the barmen who gave us such a laugh over the weekend. We also want to thank all the staff. Especially Julia, Kim and Laura for making our Wedding an Amazing and Magical experience. My advice for anyone even considering booking their wedding in BrookLodge is you need to visit this special place in person. The pictures on the website are great but you need to see it for yourself to get the atmosphere of the place. We will definitely be visiting again soon and for our anniversary. We hope to see you all again. Huge thanks again, Janice and Brendan

Brooklodge & the wedding team were amazing and I'll be forever grateful for making our day unbelievable on the 28th December. The service was spectacular & a special thanks to the team for making sure the wedding party stayed dry during the photographs-the effort put in by all staff was fantastic. The rain stayed away until just after the ceremony. The food was fantastic 5star & I'm very glad I made the time to enjoy my meal or I would of been very disappointed! I have never ate such good food at a large setting with 150 guests. The compliments we received for a brilliant day made the planning from Australia worth it. I can not recommend Brooklodge enough ??

From the very beginning of the process to the wedding day itself, the entire brooklodge team were fantastic. There was nothing to fret about on the day as they had every angle covered. Changes were dealt with easily and the setting and food had the entire party mesmerised. there was not a thing I could think of that we would change. Can't recommend this venue highly enough.

I can't speak more highly of the team at brooklodge, everything from planning stages right through to the day after was perfect. Their expertise and support made our wedding day and weekend absolutely perfect and magical.

We got married in BrookLodge on the 13th June 2014. From the moment we arrived, the hotel did everything and more to make us feel very welcome. Every guest we spoke to on the day complemented us on a stunning choice of venue, and the food was out of this world! Some even went as far as to say it was the best meal they've ever had! BrookLodge was the first and only hotel we viewed as a venue for our wedding, because we knew nowhere thereafter would ever compare!We cannot give the staff at BrookLodge enough thanks for providing us with an experience that was truly magical. To all the staff at BrookLodge, thank you again from the bottom of our hearts, Emma & Dave xx

Sarah and the team at Brooklodge! We just received our wedding photos from the amazingly talented Katie Farrell Photography so we thought we would share a few with you. First of all thank you for making our wedding day so magical and perfect! Planning a wedding from the other side was always going to be a little difficult but your professionalism and willingness to help and answer all my questions, made it that much easier. Our day was everything we hoped for, a beautiful setting with amazing food surrounded by our nearest and dearest. We were fortunate enough to enjoy the BIG TABLE EXPERIENCE in the Strawberry Tree Restaurant and it was just phenomenal. The food and the service was second to none. If any brides are still making up their minds for a venue, then look no further. The team at BrookLodge are amazing and it will be the day of your dreams.

I'd just like to extend a sincere thank you to you, Sarah, Joe and all the staff at the hotel for making our wedding such a special day. We can't thank you enough for all the help in the build-up and all the support we received on the day itself. We'd particularly like to compliment the way staff members were introduced to us as shifts changed throughout the day. Myself and Fintan were both really impressed by this and felt minded at all times during the day and night. We honestly couldn't compliment the staff enough. We're looking forward to returning for a chill out weekend hopefully in the not to distant future.

It was been nearly six months since our wedding day in June and time is just flying by but we just wanted to thank you again for everything you and the team in BrookLodge did to make our wedding day so special for us. The entire weekend was perfect and we could not have asked for more. Again thank you all so much and we will be down to BrookLodge to visit soon, hopefully for our one year anniversary.

Massive thank you to all the staff and especially Niamh and the wedding team for making our wedding day truly spectacular. From the first visit down the girls were in tune with what we wanted and everybody went out of their way to make it happen. Even the weather complied on the day :) All of our guests have commented on the location the staff and the impeccable service from booking to follow up after. And a special mention for the flawless dinner service and bar staff over in BrookHall! I cannot recommend Brooklodge enough they do something special and hopefully continue to do it for a long time. Thank you all!!

John and I would like to express our sincerest thanks for everything that you did for us leading up to our wedding and on the day itself. Your attention to detail and professional manner was just unbelievable. The food was second to none and the service and friendliness of the staff was flawless. We were so happy with everything and our guests were also so complimentary of the hotel and staff. From the moment we arrived you made our stay so memorable. A huge thank you to Esther who was fantastic during our stay and in particular on the wedding day. You made it the best day of our lives. We cannot but highly recommend the wedding team and the staff and management of the Brooklodge for any wedding or function. Both John and I are looking forward to spending a few nights in the Brooklodge very soon. It was truly an amazing day and I still tell people about the Brooklodge and their wedding team – flawless!

Hi Sarah, We're back to reality with a bang this week but I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone at Brooklodge but especially you for all your help in the run up to the big day!!! Pat says you were a great help trying to help get the tree just right and I was so happy with how it turned out! Honestly you were just brilliant - everything went so smoothly and I couldn't have been happier with how it all went. Everyone was raving about Brooklodge especially the food and the service and everything really was spot on. Thank you so much again Sarah - I can't wait for my next trip to Brooklodge and we'll get ourselves organised and have a small token of our appreciation out to you this week. Best wishes for the future - it really was a pleasure to meet you!

Hi Ladies, I just wanted to say, on behalf of myself, Carlo and the boys, a huge Thankyou to you all for everything. I knew from the moment we booked the Brooklodge, we were going to have one helluva day , to say it was the most amazing day ever wouldn't even come close! And a special mention to Niamh, you were an absolute Super Star on the day, you really helped me with my nerves, and the attention to detail was superb. I would recommend you to all my friends planning their own weddings but the venue / food / staff / rooms etc etc all spoke for themselves! With very deep gratitude and very best wishes,

Dear Niamh, Gillian Sarah & all, Just a quick line to tell you that everything at Lisa's wedding on Saturday was absolutely wonderful! It all went like clockwork, just as you had predicted. The venue, the meal, the timing, the service....all faultless! We got a beautiful day also & everyone was sitting outside after the meal & speeches(which were all over by 9.30) Then people danced all night! What good wedding planners you are! The rehearsal dinner on Friday night was very special & the barbeque food was excellent. Kindest regards,
