We would like to thank the River court Hotel and it's wonderful team, especially Iona who co-ordinated our wedding and Natalia who looked after our wedding reception on the day. They provided a fantastic service to us from the moment we enquired about having our wedding in their hotel, our wedding was organised within three months and that was possible because of the professionalism, efficiency,friendliness and excellent co-ordination from Iona. The Rivercourt was a dream to deal with nothing was too much trouble and it was all about want we wanted on our day and they delivered that 100% on our wedding day. All the staff in the hotel were extremely professional, the food was gorgeous and the service was excellent. The setting was magical with the castle lit up at night looking into the ballroom. All of our guest commented on the service, food and the hotel. Our bridal suite was beautifully with an amazing view of the castle. It really was the perfect venue for our wedding and an excellent service was provided. We really were looked after so well and made to feel so special on our special day. I would encourage any couple looking for a wedding venue to strongly consider having their wedding in the Rivercourt hotel.

We had our wedding at the rivercourt hotel on the 7th of December. From the time we booked our wedding they were absolutely fantastic Marcella the wedding coordinator was so helpful and Catherine in reservations was fantastic! The weekend of our wedding we cannot fault one member of staff from the time we arrived everyone was so helpful the night porter was so kind and at 4 o’clock in the morning as we headed to bed after our fantastic wedding day he asked what time we wanted our breakfast delivered at. The wedding day ran perfectly absolutely nothing went wrong the food was beautiful all our guests complimented the hotel the food and staff. Thank you for an amazing weekend! Laura & Alan Sower xxx

We have giving 5 stars on every option and if we could give more we would. Kilkenny Rivercourt team made our day prefect from the first time we saw this hotel we knew it was for us. Marcella and her team are extremely professional and any queries or worries were always answered without hesitation. As the day approached we were in contact with Marcella who was always on the other end of the phone to reassure us. On the day itself the service was second to none. Every table was serve at a quick speed which meant NO table was waiting on food which was a big thing for us after being to weddings were tables near back might not have being served by time other tables were ready for mains. Natalia and Dee on the day ensured everything went smoothly and we or our guests couldn't fault anything. Location wise it is the perfect location and if anyone is thinking of Kilkenny as a place they would like to have there big day then look no further the Kilkenny Rivercourt. Food was amazing and there was no shortages all of our guest have complimented the food and the service. If we could do it all again there isn't 1 thing we would change about our venue

Wow! We cannot fault the Rivercourt. We were married on a grey, miserable Sunday in September and I thought if we couldn’t get married outside I’d be upset but everything was perfect. The staff couldn’t do enough for us from the moment we arrived the day before to the day we left. There was a wedding on the day before ours but you wouldn’t have guessed with the service we received. A special mention for Marcella, she helped us with every query we had and is such a lovely person to deal with. Natalia on the day made us feel so calm, I’m sure she wasn’t!! Brian & Catherine too were so helpful, nothing was too much trouble. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Rivercourt to couples for their wedding, we’re from Dublin too, it’s just over an hour away. We haven’t heard one negative thing about the day.

Hi Niamh & Garreth, thank you so much for your lovely feedback! You were a pleasure to look after! Wishing you both all the best and make sure to call in again when you are back in Kilkenny. Best Wishes, Marcella

We had our wedding in The Rivercourt Hotel in September and loved every minute of it. We booked our wedding with the hotel early 2018 and from the booking up to the wedding day the hotel helped us with so many parts of our planning. Anytime we had a question Marcella was there to help us out and offer advice, and once we had to start confirming the finer details closer to the day Marcella was again a huge help. Everything we asked for was looked after and the service we received from the hotel on the day was fantastic. Natalia was absolutely brilliant too. She put us completely at ease from the minute we arrived at the hotel, she ensured the day ran smoothly and did everything she possibly could to look after us and our guests. We had been concerned about some of time constraints on the day but Natalia kept us updated on everything, put us at ease and ensured we had the time we needed. We were so thankful for her on the day and really appreciate everything she did for us. We would 100% recommend The Rivercourt Hotel to anyone planning a wedding, it was the perfect setting for our day and the staff there really looked after us. So many of our guests have commented how much they loved the hotel and everything they offered on the day.

We were so lucky to be able to have our wedding in this beautiful place. On the nice day there is no better place for wedding in Kilkenny and probably not many in Ireland! From the very beginning we felt massive support from RC event team. No task was to big, no question was left an answered, we were receiving phone calls from Sinead or Marcela asking about our preparations which was a lovely touch and made us feel a little bit more special???? We loved everything about the day, food was great, service was stunning, and just an option of sitting out looking at the castle was more than enough to confirm we made the best choice! Special thanks to Sinead, as an unexperienced wedding planners we had no idea where to start, what to do next, what's very important, what a bit less, but Sinead made everything so easy for us that organising this wedding was a piece of cake! I would highly recommend this venue to every couple thinking about the wedding in this beautiful city. Kind regards Basia&Ray

We had our wedding reception in the Kilkenny Rivercourt Hotel in July. Everything was fabulous - the food, drink, staff, rooms and the venue itself. The terrace was a great location for our drinks reception and the Marshall suite was beautiful overlooking the castle. We also had a BBQ on the terrace the day after our wedding for close family and friends and it went smoothly. We had our own private area and there was a great selection of food. As a bride you can be a bit nervous about everything running smoothly but Catherine and Dee made sure everything went smoothly on the day. We dealt with Marcella and Iona in the run up to the wedding and both were easy to deal with and dedicated to their jobs. We wanted to put our own personality into the wedding and there was no hassle with our requests.

I got married in the rivercourt hotel in june I found rivercourt staff from start to finish a pleasure to deal with. So helpful at all times and on the day went above and beyond to ensure we had the perfect day. We had our ceremony there also which was amazing . The food was exceptional and feedback from guests suggested that they thought so too. The bridal suite is exquisite with champagne breakfast to our room . The view of that castle is amazing to wake up to . I could not fault a thing about our day and alot of this is down to an excellent venue which we certainly had.

The staff at the RiverCourt hotel made our wedding day from start to finish they helped us plan and organise in the most stress free way possible. Any request that was made to them during the whole process was greeted with “thats absolutely no problem we will take care of that”They provided amazing customer service to both me and my husband and our guests. The whole day ran so smooth all thanks to them . The food was amazing we had all our guests commenting on the quality of the food and wine and how there was plenty of it . The location of the hotel is amazing with all the doors opening onto the terrace so all our guests could be together the whole night seamlessly. I cannot thank the staff enough for making our day a true fairytale wedding and a day we will never forget .

I couldn't rate the Rivercourt hotel higher. The venue is beautiful, the food was brilliant, but above all, the staff were AMAZING. The one thing we kept hearing back from our guests was that the staff were so friendly, helpful and accommodating. Nothing was too small or too big, and they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and ensure we had the best day of our lives. Definitely 5 star + treatment! I cannot express to the whole team of staff how grateful we are to them for helping to make our day so perfect!

From the moment we arrived in the Rivercourt Hotel we knew it was the Weddingv Venue for us. From the picturesque backdrop of Kilkenny Castle to the beautiful decor of the ballroom it was really special. Our Wedding Coordinator Marcella was great, very professional and always on the other end of the phone to answer any questions we had. The Wedding Day itself from start to finish was the best day of our lives. The minute we arrived at the hotel Dee met us outside with our drinks and a warm welcome. From the pre recetion to the main dinner the food was amazing and plenty of it. We are still getting complements on how beutiful the food was. The staff at reception, barmen and women, waiters and waitresses, accomodation and all Management were very professional but most importantly were very polite and friendly. We would like to thank Marcella and GM Catherine for such a wonderful day and keep up the great work.

We had our ceremony and reception at the Rivercourt Hotel in Kilkenny in August of this year and we had a fabulous day. The ceremony outside on the terrace was beautiful and everything ran like clockwork under Nathalya’s watchful eye. The food at the reception was delicious - we had the Asian Chicken/Tofu salad for starters and a choice of Roast Cauliflower and Goats Cheese, Sea Bream and Prawns or Roast Chicken for mains and the assiette for dessert. Throughout the day the service was exceptional and the next day we had a BBQ on the terrace which was a lovely way to relax with some of the guests who were staying around. We live in the UK so we organised the wedding mostly via email and the hotel staff from the events team to the reception and bar staff were very helpful and friendly

I had my wedding in July at the Rivercourt. Staff are amazing and did everything to make our day special. Food was AMAZING. Feedback was excellent from the guests. I was initially worried, as the 1st tasting wasn't up to par. But there was a new chef who was reinventing the menu, and at the second tasting I got a taste of the new menu and was blown away. The food is Michelin quality! There were a few mishaps: I asked for a stage for the band provided by the hotel and I never got one. The final bill I got on the next day of the wedding was higher than what it should've been, but that was sorted too. All in all, I would recommend the Rivercourt,price, food and staff are superb. Bridal suite is gorgeous too!

We had our ceremony and reception in the Rivercourt hotel and we couldn't fault any part of it. From the time we went to our first wedding fair before we had even decided on our venue, until our day they couldn't have been nicer. All the staff are so friendly and helpful. Darragh was our co-ordinator and he was amazing! Everytime I contacted Darragh he was so quick to respond he made sure everything was how we wanted it and always touched base with us throughout the year of planning and even the following morning to make sure we were happy with everything. All our guests loved the hotel it's an amazing setting, rooms are gorgeous and food was fab.
