We had our day 12th May at the beautiful Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel. For every step of the way from our initial enquiry through viewing, booking, planning, tasting and the wedding itself, Alyson and the extended team were helpful, focused, friendly and made the day of our dreams come through with as little hassle as possible.
This venue is a hidden gem in the heart of Kilkenny, the mouth-watering food did not stop coming all day & night with coeliac, vegetarian and other requests managed with ease. The hotel has beautiful locations for photographs which allows the couple more time with their guests during the day. The wedding packages surpass any other venues in the city for choice and extras available & even if we didn't add a single extra thing the venue was stunning. The wedding co-ordinator managed each and every minute detail on the day and even when things were slightly off plan from outside vendors, I was blissfully unaware until after the day. I could not recommend the team at the Ormonde more.

Fantastic service all round. The kilkenny ormonde couldn't have done enough for us on the lead up to the wedding and on the day. Every need was catered for. Stunning hotel with beautiful rooms and a fabulous bridal suite. The food was absolutely amazing. My partner is a coeliac and they accommodated him in every way possible. Highly recommend this venue. You'll be in great hands should you decide to book your day here.

The staff are a credit to management in the hotel. They made us feel important and special throughout the whole process. The wedding team, and in particular Dee were the reason we selected the hotel. They were so kind and made us feel at ease through the whole process.
Our guests are still commenting on the high quality of food and service. The chef was very accommodating to our needs and was open to our ideas.
I highly reccommend Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel to any couple looking for a wedding venue. All of our vendors commented on how easy the hotel was to communicate with and how accommodating they were to everyones ideas and vision.

Where do we start? The Ormonde Hotel was absolutely fantastic from beginning to end. They went above and beyond in ever single way. My husband and I were supposed to get married in another hotel and two weeks before the wedding day they changed their prices, with a price hike of 50%. With only a week and 4 days to our wedding, we walked into the Ormonde Hotel. The minute we walked in we felt like 'This is the One', and then we met the friendly Alice. She explained everything in detail and could not be more professional. We met again 4 days before the wedding and we were given a running record to ensure Alan and I were happy with the running of the day and we were given the option to change anything. The wedding team also had a copy to ensure the day would go to plan. As it was during Covid 19, we had 43 guests and it felt like a big wedding. There were ample amount of staff available and no one was ever waiting for a drink, due to table service. Everyone commented on the layout up of the room and also the food. It was amazing. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning a wedding.

Mick and I had the most amazing day and night at our wedding during Covid
Every care was made by the Ormond Hotel and their staff to ensure that Mick I and our guests had a relaxed day full of fun .
The wedding dinner was just beautiful, top quality and all our guests needs were met , vegan and vegetarian.
Eventhough we were in the middle of the Covid pandemic we were made feel very special.
Many thanks to all the staff,
Ye made our day memorable

I cannot recommend The Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel, Alice, Colin and staff more. From the minute we walked into the gorgeous hotel, viewed the ballroom, and spoke with Alice & the Team, we knew that this was the hotel for us and we were going to be in the best of hands.

Then the pandemic hit and, what can I say? I have never felt so informed, supported, offered such flexibility & was shown such kindness & warmth during what was not just a worrying time for Brides and Grooms, but also anyone in the hospitality industry, but I never once felt stress or concern from the Team. Every conversation was focused on what our options were, what the regulations meant and always checking in on our comfort levels.
We did get married on our original date (yay!), with 45 guests and I can honestly say, it felt like any normal wedding to us and that's 100% down to the planning, preparation communication and organisation from ALL of the staff in the Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel. Thank you!!

The detail: The food was incredible - words cannot describe just how incredible. I asked for a slight tweak of the menu (which wasn't on the original menu plan) and that was absolutely no issue at all.
The decor & operational set up were simply fabulous. Considering the covid rules at the time, tables of max 6 with no more than 3 households - I didn't even notice that it potentially could have felt like a small wedding, it actually felt so relaxed as everyone was facing the top table (just my husband and I!) and everyone looked so comfortable!
The staff were absolutely fabulous considering it had to be table service for everything. Colin ensured he had additional staff on so no-one would be waiting too long for a drink! And wow, everyone was just so so lovely to deal with on the day - we were honestly blown away by the kindness and professionalism of the staff.

There are so many more amazing things I could say about Alice, Colin & Team but my advice, simply visit the hotel, meet the Team and you'll see why I am so happy I chose The Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel as my venue

We recently had our wedding reception at the Ormonde Hotel, what can I say my wife & I were blown away by the service, the food & the level of detail that we received on our special day.

We had put a lot of work in to the wedding & had some personal touches that Gill & her team were more than helpful to assist us putting it all together.
All of our guests are still raving about the whole day - from first entering the drinks reception where we had sparkling wine, bottled beer & a gin bar for our guest along with tea & coffee - the hotel provided an abundance of delicious sandwiches & wraps along with mini deserts & canapes.

Moving on to the banquet itself we were treated to a sumptuous banquet, for me going to a wedding the food needs to be good to ensure all guests have a good day & the Ormonde did not disappoint.

The 5 course meal was second to none, & no shortage of seconds if by some chance you were still peckish,
It was the first time many of our guests were in the hotel as they were travelling a long distance - no-one had a bad word to say, the meal was fantastic & the service was very good, many of our guests complimented the waiters on such a professional job, They were supervised by the meticulous Colin & Stan on the day.

I would highly recommend the Ormonde Hotel for any milestone celebration, you'll go along way to beat the reception we received in a great location in the heart of Kilkenny City

We got married in the Ormonde hotel in June 2019 after a short engagement and from the moment we met Gill she was so welcoming, organised, easy to deal with and put us at ease immediately. The hotel staff were always so friendly when we dropped into the hotel and no request was too much. We were greeted by Gill on arrival at the hotel on the day and immediately felt calm and relaxed. The Kings ballroom was laid out lovely and staff were very helpful. The meal was lovely and feedback from all the guests was very positive. I would highly recommend the Ormonde as a wedding venue due to location which was so central to the city, quality of service, and also professionalism of all the staff. We both really enjoyed the day and how it went and would like to thank Gill and staff for all their help and support through out. Thanks a mill Anne-Marie & Pat Holden

We had our wedding day on june 14th 2019 .From the day we met Gill she was so welcoming & very co operative to work with .Like all brides i was so nervous in the run up to our big day hoping that everything would go according to plan but once we arrived at the ormonde hotel we were greeted once again by Gills happy face and two glasses of champagne . Once we got inside to our guests i just looked around at everything displayed exactly as we had asked . I would 110% recommend the ormonde hotel to anyone & feedback from our guests would say exactly the same. Thanks again for everything Louise & Enda Mcenery

I actually couldn't recommend the Ormonde Hotel highly enough.Its in a prime location right in the middle of the city. Any staff member we dealt with was so friendly and professional especially Stephen and Gill. They couldn't do enough for us.We were given complimentary meals on various occasions,a complimentary night stay the day after the wedding and also for our 1st anniversary which we are already looking forward to & lovely personalised wedding gift and the price beat all other competition out of the park.The venue is fabulous, the food was delicious. Our day ran so smoothly we didn't have to worry about anything. We had a fabulous day and would recommend them to anyone, I honesty couldn't fault the hotel or staff in anyway at all, and would like to just thank them again for all their help and support

The venue is lovely. Chloe our wedding coordinator was fantastic. Everyone was raving about the food and the service was excellent. I was having a fantastic wedding until one individual member of staff closed our residents bar and I had to lose 30 minutes of my wedding night trying to get it sorted. The ordeal embarrassed me in front of my guests. It did get sorted but it did effect my night.
Everyone other than that individual were amazing and I would recommend it as a venue to get married in.

Beautiful hotel. Great service until big day arrived. Alot of minor errors which can make a massive diffrence.
No DMC
No champagne served on arrival
Waiting around for room keys
No entrance music (arranged months before)
Staff in ballroom fantastic
Food fabulous
Just felt let down on service with speeches and cake cutting (never even happened)
Nobody really noticed.
Just I was very disheartened.

We found the Ormonde to be extremely helpful to us from the time we stepped in the door to discuss their packages. Nothing was a problem with them whether it was changes to the menu, package or discounted rooms. Deirdre is a credit to them and made the whole planning stress free for us. We knew with Dee in charge the day would run perfectly - which it did. Louise also came on board in the weeks leading up to our wedding and she was also super as I was emailing her with changes to our table plan every day on the week of our wedding and our Table plan was perfect on the day.
We would without doubt recommend the Ormonde to future couples who are planning to have their reception in Kilkenny.
