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!

We had our wedding in the Kilkenny Rivercourt Hotel in September and it was a truly amazing experience. From the time we booked our wedding we were looked after so well all the staff were so friendly and helpful the wedding team were always just an email or phone call away even the morning of the wedding when i had to change a table around it wasn't an issue. The reception room was spacious but intimate and the food was fabulous our guests are still talking about how good the meal was. Everyone commented on having such a great time at the wedding. The Rivercourt is a great location especially with the breath taking backdrop of kilkenny castle for photos. I would defenitely recommend to anyone getting married to check out this venue. Thanks so much to Marcella, Catherine and all at the Kilkenny Rivercourt Hotel.

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.
