Amazing venue and amazing staff. They made everything so easy, especially when we had to change it date due to covid. We were planning our wedding from overseas and the staff at Ballykisteen made everything feel as if we had just popped in to sort everything. 100% recommend to all.

Hi there, myself and Denis would like to thank ye for the most amazing day ever, everyone is talking about the food and staff still, ye couldn't have made our day more perfect. From first contact all the way through we were looked after, no request was too much and even small touches ye added were all perfect. If we could do it all over again we couldn't pick a better place.

PJ and Keava at Ballykisteen were a pleasure to work with. We had the most wonderful wedding day and everything went so smoothly. A special mention to PJ who's attention to detail throughout the day was second to none and gave us reassurance that everything was in control. The food was amazing and we still have guests telling us how much they enjoyed the meal and were very impressed by the venue. All the staff were attentive and we would definitely recommend Ballykisteen to any future Bride & Groom who are looking at Hotel venues for their wedding day.

Marion and her team at Ballykisteen was totally amazing. Very easy talk to plus very down to earth and listened to all and every idea we had for our big day. From start to finish arrival, ceremony food and party flowed so easily and we had the ultimate wedding day/experience at Ballykisteen even though the weather was literally a storm that day the rain dell bucket loads it certainly didn’t dampen our day what so ever. We couldn’t thank Marion and all at Ballykisteen enough.

From the moment we meet with them right up they gave us help and support. Anything we wanted they went out of there way. I love extras and detail and bought lots of favours and had a picture of how I wanted it to be and they went above and beyond to do it. The value for money was fantastic we wanted a small affordable wedding with 3,kids our budget was low. What we got was amazing for the price we looked at a few and for that price we would of got basic menu .

I cannot thank marion and staff enough for our perfect day. Marion went above and beyond for me and my husband in so many ways on many occasions. Marion ensured that I was stress free throughout the process which was a relief as I had other things to stress about but Ballykisteen wasnt one. On our wedding day everything ran flawless from our photo's to serving our food which was delicious and all our guests thought so to the evening entertainment, there wasn't a thing out of place it was PERFECT. I would highly reccommend Ballykisteen for your perfect wedding day. If I could go back and do it all again there isnt a thing I would change.

We had our wedding at the Ballykisteen hotel on the 22.10.2016 and I can honestly say it was the best day of our lives.This was down to the staff throughout the hotel.We were looked after by Helen Leddy throughout the year and no matter what I asked from her it was never too much or a hassle.The hotel on the day couldn't have looked better, the room we were in for dinner looked amazing.The food was magnificent, this is coming from a coeliac, our guests are still raving about the dinner.The bridal suite was beautiful the guests could not get over how spacious and clean their rooms were either.The service we got that day from the hotel was second to none, there isn't one complaint I could give even if I thought hard enough about it.Then we got a delicious breakfast the following morning to finish off the weekend.I especially want to mention Helen for all the work she does in the run up to your big day, she is very proffesional and is excellent at her job and to Jamie who looked after us once Helen left that evening, he is an absolute gentleman, helped us through the night even fixing my veil every time I sat down at dinner.???? I would highly recommend this hotel if you want to have a dream wedding day.Thanks to all at the Ballykisteen Hotel.x

Booked this venue from Sydney without seeing it in person so i was a bit anxious when we got back to Ireland! It couldn't have been more perfect from the personal service to the rave reviews we received about our menu on the day it was fantastic. Although Helen wasn't there on the day Jamie her colleague was amazing. The ballroom was what sold me and the photos don't even do it justice. Top tip - pick one area to take your family/bridal party photos and go enjoy your pre-drinks reception i only done this based on advise from Helen and it really paid off! We had approx 30mins of photos and we were free to mingle with the crowd!

We got married in Ballykisteen on New Years Day. We cannot recommend the hotel enough. They literally could not have done enough for us. The food was amazing (still getting compliments) We had a few coeliac, vegetarians, lactose intolerant and a vegan and nothing was too much trouble. Plenty of seconds if they were wanted. The room and hotel looked beautiful on the day! Helen and Tina were brilliant! They are so appreciative of your business and we're so calming in the run up to the day. We had to do a lot of chopping and changing in the 2 weeks previous and they couldn't have been more accommodating. Nothing was a hassle to them.

We had our wedding at Ballykisteen and I have to say the food was the best thing of all. They had no problem catering for any requirements (which included a couple of fussy eaters). The only issue we had was with the table plan software they gave us. It dropped off people from the top table and a couple of other tables so we had the stress of people coming up to us to say they weren't on any plan. Helen advised that she was going to contact MOPOSA the week after and get back to me but I never heard back. Other than that, we loved every bit of it.

Everything was excellent reallythe staff, food and ombience were top notch. The only reason I took a star off for flexibility was because we weren't allowed to do speeches during the meal. They needed to be at the start or end of the meal and second of all we were told on the run up to the wedding we could have a buggy to take photos on the golf course but on the day they wouldn't let us because of a competition which was disappointing.

I could not rate this hotel high enough. The impression speaks for itself, it's so modern and layout is fabulous, no divide of guests and the staff could literally not do any more to accommodate quirky, unusual or fussy requests ???? my only downfall would be the clearing of ballroom to prepare for the music, if this could be done without requesting all guests to proceed to the main bar for a short time then it would be amazing

Stayed only 1 night, after a wedding reception. A superb meal with excellent service many staff serving we were on tables of 10 (a total of almost 200 guests) with no delay between the people being served. Served with almost military precision but with politeness and friendliness added As an aside, Irish venues seem to serve much better food to a large number of people than we Brits. Staying with food the breakfast was great with a large selection of FRESH fruit salad, croissants, breads, cereals, etc. The cooked food was delicious - even after a late night with plenty of drink - irresistible. Room was large, well equipped, clean and very comfortable. Lovely view from the window, over the course and countryside. I could not get the Internet but was too occupied to bother about that.
