From the start of the process to the day of the wedding everything was so well organized. When ever we had a query there was always a quick reply. The whole process of getting married can be so overwhelming and stressful but the wedding team really went above and beyond. The day went beautifully and all of our guests loved the venue. The food was one of the biggest talking points with some comments saying it was the best wedding meal they had ever had! Thank you for giving us the perfect wedding day! Megan and Wayne

Our wedding day was beyond our expectations. It is hard to put into words how amazing it was! From the moment we started looking at wedding venues, BrookLodge was the main contender. The venue and scenery is absolutely stunning! We booked during Covid so, hadn't seen it in person, only on a video call before booking. However, on our first visit we fell more in love with it - the venue and people. We were made feel instantly at ease and welcome. The Weddings Team, Sally and Sonja are incredible - from the very beginning they were extremely responsive, very quick to answer all our queries, and there were many! Their knowledge and direction puts you at ease during a stressful time as you know you are in great hands. You have nothing to worry about as they have everything covered - even little bits you'd never think of! On the day, the team were unbelievable - they ensured everything ran smoothly, even down to the smallest of details. It was seamless! Pawel was brilliant looking after us and our guests during the evening, offering his direction when we needed it. The food and service were top notch.. our guests are still raving about it!! We honestly had the best day, and our guests have said it was the best wedding they were at! We can't thank the Weddings Team and all the staff enough for making our special day, a truly amazing day and experience. We are already looking forward to getting back there for a visit!

We had our Wedding at BrookLodge and Macreddin Village on the 2nd of October 2022 and everything was perfect. The chapel and brookhall have absolutely stunning interiors and the grounds were picture perfect. I could write an essay about the food alone, everything was catered for every guest and I can’t fault anything, It was truly delicious. The staff were incredible at bringing our vision to life and I want to thank the Wedding team especially for getting everything running smoothly but all the staff were incredible. It was a very special day, I would tell everyone having a Wedding to consider BookLodge because you will be truly stress free on the day of your wedding. Aoife and Paul Rosser

What can I say?! It’s hard to put into words how much of an amazing wedding we had at The Brooklodge!! It really was the best day ever. From the moment we got engaged there was nowhere else that would do for our big day, other than The Brooklodge. It is the most stunning venue. So beautiful and peaceful and everything you need is onsite, so once all your guests are there they can relax and know they don’t have to drive anywhere else. We had a humanist ceremony in Macreddin chapel and our drinks reception and meal / dancing etc in Brookhall. We were fortunate enough to have good weather so being able to use the little garden at Brookhall for the drinks reception was great! The weddings team, Sally, Sophie and Sonja, were amazing from the get go, always available for any queries we had, always got back to us super quickly and didn’t make me feel silly for asking silly questions!! The whole day was seamless. The weddings team were on hand making sure everything went smoothly and Michael ensured the evening reception was perfect and was always one step ahead of what was needed! The food was incredible. Our guests are still ranting and raving about how great it was - they all said it was the best wedding meal they’ve ever had, and some even said the beef was the best they’d ever had full stop! It honestly was the perfect venue and our guests are still telling us it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to! We live in Northern Ireland, so it was quite an ask for them to travel down to be with us, but they all say it was totally worth the journey and some of them have already booked to go back and stay at The Brooklodge because they loved it so much!! Thanks so much to the whole team at The Brooklodge for making our day so perfect and special!

The wedding team could not have done enough for us both in the lead up and during the our wedding in August. We had the most amazing couple of days and every single detail was perfect.

Brooklodge were exceptional to deal with - from the moment we booked through to our Covid postponement - to our eventual big day just a few weeks ago. Every single detail was carefully considered, organised and delivered - nothing was too big or too small for the team to organise for us and having heard so many brides upset with their venues for different reasons, I feel truly blessed that ours was so exceptional! Truly the decision to book a wedding venue feels huge and scary with no idea how the team will deliver in the lead up and on the day, so my advice to anyone is really to research with other couples who've had a wedding at your venue to get the true experience - before you book. Brooklodge was for us the perfect balance between understated elegance, exceptional food and staff and thoughtfulness on the day. Small details like closing off reception to allow me as the bride to walk through to the chapel really meant a lot, and throughout the drinks and dinner, the whole team couldn't do enough. I'd love to do it all over again - and for sure it would be back in Brooklodge. Please God we will go back to stay and even perhaps renew our vows in the years to come. Exceptional experience from start to finish!

Brooklodge is the most magical wedding venue. We had a beautiful outdoor wedding. We had planned to have a Catholic blessing in the Chapel and only decided to go outside the night before the wedding as the weather was lovely. Sonja, Sally and Sophie were more than amazing. From the moment we inquired to the day of the wedding they were so accomadating. There was no such thing as a stupid question or a request too big. Every email and phone call was answered swiftly and efficiently. On the day Sonja went above and beyond her duties. She was there for us from the morning to the evening and made sure all our needs were met. Sonja ensured there were plenty of food and drinks for everyone on arrival. Also to add, the midnight supper was super! The guests raved about the surroundings, the food and the accomadation. We had a family dinner in La Taverna the night before the wedding. The weather was so nice that they allowed us to have dinner outside which was exceptional. We had a BBQ the night after which I would highly recommend. The food was plentiful and delicious The breakfast was beautiful and fresh each morning. Sd stayed in the mezzanine suite for the three nights which was modern and spacious! There were a lot of kids in our wedding party and the staff were so kind to them. They used the pool every day which was perfect. The spa is out of this world and a real treat to use the morning after your wedding. I cannot fault the Brooklodge in any way. We will use it as an anniversary spot every year now and are so looking forward to returning. Food, staff, accomadation, surroundings 100%

We had our wedding reception and Day 2 celebration BBQ at BrookLodge in June and it was the best decision we could have made. The wedding team were so amazing to deal with and we really appreciated how responsive and helpful they were. They made everything so easy for us and we knew they would have everything under control on the day. On our wedding day the drinks reception and dinner were in BrookHall which is absolutely beautiful. The room is bright and spacious with a lovely outdoor area if the weather is nice. The food was INCREDIBLE and our guests are still talking about how good the quality was. The staff were so attentive and friendly and made sure everyone was happy. Both Sonja and Pavel were so helpful on the day and we cannot thank them enough. We had a BBQ in Actons the next day, which again was top class. Thank you so much BrookLodge for helping make our wedding day so memorable and special.

I have nothing but positive things to say about BrookLodge & Macreddin Village as our wedding venue. Their communication was excellent, any time I had a query I would get a detailed response within hours, any requests and changes I made were done so without a fuss, they made the wedding planning so stress-free. I couldn’t be more appreciative. The venue is perfect. We stayed the night before the wedding and enjoyed a wonderful meal with some friends and family in the Italian restaurant (La Taverna Armento - the best pizza I have ever tasted!) We married in the beautiful chapel and strolled over to BrookHall for the reception and an unforgettable day. I loved how everything was close by. My family could not have been better taken care of, the staff were so accommodating, friendly and brilliant - they just wanted to make sure that we were having the best day. So many people commented on the quality and deliciousness of the food - the portions were excellent! I would have no hesitation recommending BrookLodge & Macreddin Village to any couple as their dream wedding venue - I just wish we could do it all over again!

We can't thank BrookLodge enough for all of their assistance in the lead up to the wedding. Responses to any of our queries were always prompt & nothing was too much trouble. Everyone we encountered in the hotel were so pleasant & the service we received was genuinely top class across the board. We can't put in to words how grateful we are for all of Sonja's help on the day itself. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with it, so efficient, friendly and such a calming influence for us both. We'll never forget how special she made us feel. We are so happy that we chose BrookLodge for our special day. We honestly loved every second of it. We wish them continued success & look forward to being regular visitors. It's a place that will hold a special place in our hearts forever more.

We had a beautiful day. There were some hiccups but this is bound to happen. There were however some things that I wasn't happy about. We had paid for mulled wine in our reception. It was served in the same container as the teas and coffees, and not many people knew what was in them, so this wasted money in my opinion. Opt for the beer and prosecco if you are doing, as at least you get your money's worth. We had our wedding during COVID, so we had to end our music at 12am But what really upset us was the music was abruptly cut off at 11.40 pm, which was a precious 20 minutes considering we had an early finish and had paid the band/DJ to play to this time. The wedding team was responsive and they tried to accommodate us with the ever-changing restrictions. But I was 20 minutes late to the ceremony due to miscommunciations.... so make sure you 100% check these details. But overall, the chapel is stunning and the grounds are beautiful.

Where do we begin to say how fantastic the wedding team are in Brooklodge. We were very lucky to have chosen Brooklodge as the venue for our special day. Brooklodge were absolutely fantastic in the early days when we were panicking about changing dates due to Covid but nothing was ever a problem for them. Once we decided to reschedule from 2020 & settled on a 2021 date that would suit both our suppliers & Brooklodge, it was all very relaxed. The team were always on call either through email or phone. They gave us so much guidance & suggestions that we hadn't even thought of. Even in the 2 weeks running up to the wedding, the government announced some new restrictions including a 12am curfew, some of our guests were anxious about attending & some had to self-isolate & couldn’t attend due to contacting the virus but Brooklodge were so understanding & reassuring- this was a real comfort for us. On the day every staff member was so attentive & nothing was an issue, the service provided is excellent, the food is so delicious & the venue is truly spectacular, especially their onsite chapel. We were even lucky enough to get some snaps with their roaming hens. Thank you Brooklodge for making our wedding so special.

We were lucky enough to have our reception at Brooklodge, Macreddin Village in November 2021 and it was by far the best day of our lives with many of our guests saying it was the best wedding they had ever been to. All the credit for this goes directly to the staff at Macreddin who delivered a flawless event. From the moment we decided to host our day here, the weddings team were with us every step of the way, ensuring that everything we wanted was made possible and even suggesting things that we might not have otherwise thought of. We chose not to bring in any outside decorators and the Brooklodge team beautifully adorned Brookhall with lanterns and flowers to suit our rustic autumn theme. The food was beyond superb and not a single guest was left hungry. We can strongly recommend a wedding at Brooklodge - you and your guests will be so grateful that you chose it! We'll be back for many meals and weekend stays in the years to come :)

Brooklodge is a little piece of heaven. Myself and my wife got married there in October of this year (2021) and enjoyed our time there immensely. Everybody, from the reception staff to the bar staff to the staff of both restaurants (The Strawberry Tree & La Taverna), to the spa staff, couldn't have been more welcoming and accommodating. The food was amazing, the grounds are beautifully romantic and the atmosphere is simply perfect. We stayed here for 7 days and the time simply went too quickly. The staff treated us with such respect that by the end of our stay, we became friends with everyone. We couldn't recommend Brooklodge highly enough for any occasion. Thank you the team for making our stay so special. Andrew & Kyanna.

The Weddings Team, Sally Sonja and Rama, were a pleasure to deal with from the outset. Pavel was a most gracious and helpful host on the wedding day; on top of everything and thinking of us at all times. The service and venue were excellent. The prices were very reasonable for a location of this standard. Of course Macreddin really stands out for its food and drink, and the wedding was no exception. The wedding meal itself, the various snacks and the organic icecream were outstanding; with alternative dietary requirements particularly well looked after. Honestly, my only regret was that I gave myself too little time to really enjoy the reception food and drink; though again Pavel had thought of us and made sure that there was some set aside for us when we arrived a little late from the post-ceremony photographs.

Planning a wedding during Covid was difficult enough but the team went above and beyond to put us at ease. Nothing was too much of an ask and every step was made easy. When the day of the wedding came Sally was at hand during the day along with Powel for the night. We felt like ours was the only wedding in the world and made to feel so special.

We just got married in Brooklodge and had the best day ever!!! Having stayed in the hotel a few times our expectations were very high, but they were exceeded on every level. The venue itself is absolutely stunning, and there are plenty of beautiful spots for photographs. The food was AMAZING, we've had so many compliments about it, especially the beef which was to die for!! However, what really blew us away was the service, every single member of staff went above and beyond to make our wedding everything we've ever dreamed of. They accommodated both ours and our guests every wish (even into the wee hours) and made us feel very special. We could not recommend this venue enough, if we could give more than 5 stars we would.

Having our wedding at Macreddin was the best decision. We already had to postpone and cancel our big destination wedding, so we set to find a venue that would allow us to have a more intimate celebration with about 20 people at short notice. We felt at home from the first time we went to see the venue. Everybody at BrookLodge aims to make you feel welcome and they deliver on it. The weddings team was responsive, flexible, fun and understanding, and made the planning process, as well as the day itself, so much easier and stress-free. All our guests could secure their rooms and were delighted with the service throughout. We had our wedding outdoors by the chapel and the setup was beautiful. We also appreciated the opportunity to switch to indoors should the weather have been bad. The dinner (and wine!) at The Strawberry Tree was gorgeous, as was the Taverna Armento the night before. We decided to book the River Lounge for after dinner and really enjoyed having our own space to dance the night away (as live music and dancing were allowed again from that date). We enjoyed it so much that we came back for a couple of nights of our honeymoon and loved having more time to enjoy all the amenities that BrookLodge has to offer.

Our wedding was 6 months ago. I'm still shocked how everything went. Wedding team didn't keep in touch at all. As I'm not Irish didn't knew a lot things but they didn't really care. Last 2 weeks before wedding I needed to look for them ( wedding team). Management didn't changed contract and tried charge us 2000€ more. As we where told we don't need to pay for the room because covid. In the end we paid rent 500€. We arrived 40min later just because was summer and weekend so we where stuck in traffic. Because of that staff told us we don't have time for our photo shoot. We literally had 30min shoot. We don't even have any pictures with our daughter because on the way she got sick and then by the time we had taken pictures we guests she was a sleep. I still crying remembering how everything was rushed and how we where treated its shocking! I would never recommend this place to anyone. We had really high expectations but we got really bad experience unfortunately.

Sally, Sonja and Rama are so helpful and friendly, nothing was too much for them. During the pandemic they kept in touch with and we never felt pressured to make any decisions about our day from them.

We had our 25 guest COVID wedding here at Brooklodge and it was honestly the most amazing and perfect day we could have asked for. The wedding team and all the staff at Brooklodge were just fantastic from the moment we and our guests arrived to when we left a few days later. Throughout the year of uncertainty the wedding team were in constant contact with us about any new regulations and were so helpful in making sure we were able to have a somewhat similar day to what we planned. We had kids and gluten free/vegetarian guests which were very well looked after. The moment we parked the car to view the venue the previous year we knew this was our venue. The setting and location are just magical and there are so many tiny details the staff do for their guests that show that extra mile they go. Special shoutouts go to Sonja, Sally, Rama and Joe for their help and hard work.

Paula and I got married here in Dec 2020 and looking back almost three months later, I wouldn't change a single thing. When we set out looking for a venue we knew we wanted three things - somewhere dog friendly, somewhere with great food and a somewhere only a short journey from Dublin. Brooklodge ticked all three boxes and it turned out to be the first and only venue we looked at. We were able to get married on site in the lovely chapel, we stayed 4 nights in total and could dine in a different place each night (each one with sensational food and wine!) and the lovely spa was ideal to wind down in after all of the wedding hype. The entire team at BrookLodge - Joe the manager, Sonja, Sally and Rama on the weddings team and Niall and all of the bar/restaurant staff did everything in their power to make us and our guest's stays as enjoyable as possible. No request was ever a problem and we really felt at home there. I would also like to commend Brooklodge on their handling of things throughout the Covid19 pandemic. It was stressful at times not knowing if and when we'd be able to go ahead with our wedding, but Brooklodge were always very supportive and assured us that everything that could be done in line with government restrictions, would be. We had heard of other venues refusing to go ahead with numbers of 25 even though their couples wanted to proceed - that was never a consideration for Brooklodge, they were willing to go ahead even if we were restricted to a wedding party of just 6 people and I thank them for that.

Sally and all the wedding team were spectacular and so helpful, even though we booked only in March 2020. The professionalism and care given to us was unreal and they were always able to accommodate our changes and ideas without any difficulty. Our guests spoke so highly of the whole experience and the food was amazing. We would recommend Brooklodge to any couple wholeheartedly!

We got married in Brook Lodge in October 2020. The venue was exceptional and the food was exquisite but what sets Brook Lodge apart is their wonderful staff. The challenges associated with Covid-19 moved the goalposts right up until the day of the wedding but Brook Lodge were prepared for every eventuality and delivered the perfect wedding for us.

The Wedding Team, friendly staff and everyone involved in Brooklodge and Macreddin Village went above and beyond to provide us the most wonderful wedding day in 2020. We were battling Covid 19 restrictions having had to postpone in March 2020 with 5 days notice, throughout the planning they made the experience as stress free as possible and were more than happy to accommodate changes to ensure we had a safe and happy day. We had a fabulous service outdoors beside the chapel on the grounds, a magical outdoors drinks reception in Brookhall and the most fab BBQ for our meal. Our guests are still talking about how wonderful the day was and how lucky we were to have got the weather. The whole experience was wonderful for us and we enjoy anytime we stay in Brooklodge and Macreddin Village.

We had our wedding in Brooklodge on 5th September,. We had to make lots of changes in view of Covid restrictions. We had a smaller wedding than planned. Brooklodge was a fabulous place to have a wedding. The setting was beautiful, the food devine & thé hotel staff were excellent & professional. The wedding planners (Sally & Sonja) were amazing from the start to the finish. They were so helpful & obliging especially with all the obstacles we encountered this year. The cost is expensive but overall it was top class. Would highly recommend as a wedding venue.

Breath taking venue, unbeatable wedding team who are there for You throughout your wedding preparations dealing with any task or question at hand. The wedding Team are so professional Sonja & Rama were incredible and very calming - nothing was an issue or problem. Brooklodge will literally tick all your boxes and also remind you of other items that you may have forgotten. We have our ceremony in the onsite chapel and our celebration within brook hall it was all magical I couldn’t have asked for a more perfectly amazing day.

Although it wasn't a wedding, I stayed in Brooklodge last weekend and was tempted to renew my vows as the place is a little piece of heaven in Co. Wicklow! if you're a foodie Brooklodge is for you with fresh local organic produce. The chapel on the grounds, the spa, several bars and restaurants and the private Brookhall for your ceremony, it has everything to make the perfect weekend for you and your guests. Not to mention the friendly, helpful and professional staff we met at every turn.

Caroline and I fell in love with Brooklodge from the second we arrived there. The venue was perfect for what we wanted and needed for our Wedding and for our guests. We wanted a venue that was self contained with everything on site and accessible for our large cohort of family and friends and that's what we got - in spades. Our focus was on our guest experience - great food, plenty to drink and a wonderful atmosphere. We had a ball at Brooklodge - the staff were amazing from start to finish. Nothing was ever a problem! As a Wedding venue this was perfect for us - we wanted to spend as much time with our guests as possible and the professionalism and diligence shown by the Brooklodge team enabled us to do that.... we even got to mingle with our guests for an hour at our drinks reception and some precious time alone before dinner thanks to the amazing Sonia and her team. Brooklodge is a special place - our wedding photos couldn't have been taken in a more wonderful setting. We would recommend Brooklodge to anyone who is looking for a venue with a relaxed atmosphere, wonderful staff and a setting to make amazing memories.

Great venue, great food & service very good. Staff very attentive and on the ball. All staff throughout the hotel were very good - from reception to brookhall to the village pub. PA system wasn’t great - our entrance song could barely be heard & the microphone kept cutting during speeches. Some of the bedrooms and certain parts of the hotel getting a little “tired”. Booked wedding ten months out and dealt with 7 different people on the wedding team. They were mostly good but really would of preferred if this was limited to 2 or 3 people. Shared my info with this website.

Brooklodge was the absolute wedding venue of our dreams!! Magical setting. Dreamy ceremony venue on site. I mean, taking a little bridge, through the trees, over a babbling brook as you enter a little church with all of your most favorite people in the's a real life fairytale! Additionally, Macreddin's incredible cuisine and focus on organic/non-gmo foods was the game changer for us. I can't tell you how many people told us they were blown away by their meal after our wedding. Luckily we had our wedding just before Covid turned the world on it's head. My now husband is American, so Brooklodge was especially perfect for us, because once we got all our American guests to the venue, there was so much for them to do on site (since several were anxious about driving on the opposite side of the road). Plus Glendalough is a perfect distance away to organize a little daytrip for any of them that wanted to do a little extra exploring. The staff & wedding team in Brooklodge were all so courteous, efficient, kind and easy to work with. This was crucial for us since we had to do the majority of planning from the States. Our wedding was 6 months after we booked the venue and even though I was nervous we were biting off a little more than we could chew (particularly since we were co-ordinating everything from abroad) thanks to the pure professionalism of the wedding team in Brooklodge, everything was absolutely seamless. I simply can not recommend this venue & its staff enough. Special shoutout to Rama and Sonya! But overall, a huge thank you to everyone in Brooklodge for hosting a day we will treasure forever.

Where to begin. From the moment we went to view Brooklodge to the day after our wedding, the team at Brooklodge were amazing. They could not have been more helpful. There was no question or query too big or small that they couldnt help with. And they were so lovely and calm which really helped make the wedding planning so much easier. The wedding itself was unforgettable. The staff particularly Sonja, were so amazing and did everything they could to make the day perfect. And the food was probably the best I have ever had, something our guests agreed with! I would not hesitate in recommending Brooklodge to anyone getting married, the food, the staff, the stunning grounds, the reception room everything is just gorgeous. In my opinion you will not find a better venue that ticks all the boxes and goes above and beyond.

There are so many highlights but we particularly loved our wedding meal with family the evening before, the chapel, the food (especially the chilli and poitin sorbet which people are still talking about!!) and how all the staff genuinely wanted to make our day so special for us. I felt like we were all family by the end of the weekend - our guests all commented on how welcome they felt.

What can I say, we had such a fantastic day we wish we could do it all over again! It is such an amazing venue. We both fell in love with it years ago and it was the only venue we thought about getting married in. I think our families thought we were mad going over 2 hours away from home but when they saw Brooklodge they understood why. The grounds are beautiful, the food is fabulous, so many guests commented on the food! The staff are fantastic, so professional and accommodating. On the day they could not do enough for us and everything went without a hitch! I will say just to some couples try not to panic if your emails aren't responded too straight away a few months before your wedding! I can only imagine the wedding team are inundated with emails with weddings that are happening before yours and there are other couples a priority, they will get back to you! They are extremely prompt in the weeks leading up to your wedding date and any queries were answered straight away! We had a few requests that were accommodated to no problem by the hotel so they are very flexible and will do what they can to accommodate you. Their wedding packages can seem to be a bit on the pricey side but when you see the venue and the beautiful grounds, taste the quality of the food, see the professionalism of the staff every penny was worth it and we would not do anything differently. We would do it all over again if we could!

Brooklodge is a very special location to choose as host for your wedding. It has become our home away from home. The quality of the food at Brooklodge is incredible, from the breakfast to dinner at the Strawberry tree you will always get fresh ingredients grown and raised onsite and sources from local farms. This ensures that you will enjoyed every meal. The hotel staff are courteous, kind and will look after everything you need doing anything they can to help you prepare for your day. The grounds are beautiful and impeccably maintained. Brooklodge are extremely dog friendly this mean we where able to have our pups at the weeding so all our family could be with us. The onsite spa is fantastic, all services are very high quality and the pool is great and adult only. But they have a 2nd pool on the opposite side of the grounds for kiddos so they do not miss out. We selected the Strawberry Tree restaurant for our wedding. We went with the big table top experience and it was exactly what we wanted for a sit down meal. The sharing of food and everyone sitting around the same table really brought unity amongst family and friends. Everyone was extremely impressed with the level of excellence of the food in the Strawberry Tree restaurant. Not only that the staff were extremely attentive to all our guests and in particular one of our Bridesmaids who has an extreme food allergy. Our Bridesmaid told us how fantastic they were and how refreshing it was to eat somewhere and not feel like you had an allergy at all. We defiantly will be back many times to Brooklodge.

Brooklodge is second to none. We had our wedding here in July 19 with the ceremony beside the chapel and reception for 120 ppl in Brookhall. The entire experience from the time we booked to the day after was fabulous, food was unbelievable, service prompt and without delay. In terms of other suppliers Brooklodge worked extremely well with all of them and knew when people were to set up and when they were needed, I needn't have worried at all. They took care of all decorations, set up , cake etc. They really did cater to our every need from ensuring that suppliers were taken for their meals at times to allowing projector use for speeches and access for singing waiters,the whole day ran seamlessly. If I were doing it again I would absolutely go back to Brooklodge. Rama & Sofia on the wedding team were fab and the GM Joe also ensured everything for us and our guests ran seamlessly. I love this hotel and will most certainly be back. Their food is absolutely delicious and nothing is a problem, Residents bar stayed open til 5am and it truly was an unforgettable day for all. I really don't think there is anything we could fault this venue on, the location is beautiful and the outdoor ceremony by the running stream was like something from a movie. Thank you so much for making our wedding so unbelievably special for both of us and each of our guests.

We recently had our intimate wedding at Brooklodge (July 2019). I have to say that from the time of booking to our wedding the service was amazing. We stayed for a few nights and had and had a very relaxing and beautiful few days. We had a private room in the Strawberry Tree for the wedding meal;it was superb. The night before the wedding we all ate in the Italian which was also superb. The staff at Brooklodge really make you feel special and go out of their way to ensure a fantastic stay. I would highly recommend the venue as it has everything you need for a super wedding. The setting is picturesque, food is top quality, service is fantastic and the spa of course, great outdoor Jacuzzi which is such a bonus. I have stayed many time at Brooklodge and it's still one of my favourite places to spend a relaxing few days.

My family have always had lovely memories from Brooklodge throughout the years as it has been such a special place to us. Brooklodge was the only wedding venue we looked at and from the moment we viewed it we knew it would be impossible to find a nicer venue. The entire team were always amazing to work with and nothing was ever a problem. We mainly dealt with Laura who was really exceptional, she was always available to take our calls, offer advice and looked after us so well. Rama was also always on hand to offer assistance and was always super helpful also. Brooklodge is known for its wonderful food and all the guests raved about the exceptional meal we had. Before the big day we were unsure whether to choose the desert pot but James, the head chef took the time to meet with us and made a sample pot and tweaked it to our exact specifications and it was the main talking point for guests from the meal because it was SO delish. He also took the time to run through the entire menu and offer his advice which was such a lovely touch. We had day 2 in Actons with a bbq where again the food was out of this world. Throughout the entire weekend, Joe was always around to ensure everything was perfect and to make sure we had all we needed. It is very difficult to mention all the members of the staff but from the team on reception to Niall and the bar/ lounge team, all Brooklodge staff were always so lovely and attentive to all guests. Brooklodge really is the most perfect wedding venue and we can confidently say that you will be looked after to the highest degree in their hands. We have such amazing memories from our day there and cannot thank Joe, James, Laura, Niall and the entire team enough. It is a venue that is sure to wow your guests and leave you with amazing memories. Would you recommend them to a friend? Yes

Laura was a wonderful wedding planner and we thoroughly enjoyed working with her. She and Michael really looked after us on the day and we cannot thank them enough. They were so helpful and you really felt that they 100% cared about both of us as if we were family and they really wanted us to have the day of our dreams. They were brilliant. The food was to die for and the setting is stunning. It was frustrating though that we weren’t designated one particular wedding planner during the planning process, each time we emailed the team there was a different name at the end of the email and it led to confusion and mix ups in the planning process. It is a very expensive wedding venue in Wicklow and it certainly is worth it for the food and setting. However they have certain policies like the Tayto sandwiches at the end of the night “doesn’t fit in with their food ethos”. No need for that kind of snobbery. They are a dog friendly hotel too which is wonderful and we were able to have our dogs there so that is another plus. It is a great venue just don’t expect to have your run of the place and to do absolutely everything you want, we found there are quite a few things they will say no to.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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,
