From the day we viewed Killeavy as a potential wedding venue, we were blown away by the staff and service provided. Planning went unbelievably smoothly and the team were available and happy to help at every step. On the day itself, the service, the food and the attentiveness of the staff was fantastic and the venue itself is stunning. We had the best day of our lives as did all our friends and family. We couldn?t recommend Killeavy Castle Estate enough!

An Amazing day from start to finish. Everyone at Killeavy Castle was so incredibly helpful. The grounds and castle are absolutely spectacular. Our wedding was perfect and we would not change a thing about it. We still have people months down the line telling us how much of a great day they had! Everything from the food and service was just outstanding could not recommend Killeavy castle enough to any future couples.

The whole team at Killeavy Castle made our day so special. From the beginning when we booked our date the planning team were so helpful with any queries or thoughts we had in regards to our day.
The day itself couldn?t have gone any better. Nothing was too much for anyone there.
The grounds are just unbelievable. Our dream was an outdoor ceremony and drinks reception which we thankfully got!
Our day was more than what we could ever have hoped for and I have to say the staff and all the team at Killeavy really helped with that!
We had our dream day in our dream venue with all of our friends and family - who are still talking about the beautiful estate and day!

We just want to say a huge Thankyou to everyone at Killeavy who helped make our day so special!

My wife and I got married in Killeavy Castle this August and had the most wonderful day. The people at Killeavy are so attentive and accommodating, they worked with us all through the planning, kept us informed, and made the day go so easily. The food and accommodation are also incredible, we visited a few times before the wedding and were always very impressed. We can?t wait to visit again!

Our wedding planner and the team at Killeavy were fantastic from start to finish. There was great attention to detail and all questions and queries were dealt with effectively. The morning of the wedding we had to make the decision to move the wedding inside. I was apprehensive about this but I was blown away with the attention to detail and that I wasn't bothered in any way about set up etc. The pavilion looked absoloutely beautiful. The food was out of this world and our guests are still talking about it along with how amazing the whole day was and how nice the rooms in the hotel were. I would ighly recommend killeavy Castle as a wedding venue.

Our wedding day was the most magical day of our lives and exceeded all our expectations which would not have been possible without Killeavy and the great team they have. They were just a phone call or email away and made us feel so at ease about everything. On the day itself we had no issues and all our guests still talk about how amazing the venue, food and staff were. Thank you so much for making our dream day unforgettable!

Honestly words can?t describe how well we were looked after and how smooth the day went. Seidy and team thought of everything before we had and always presented a couple of options leaving big decisions to us but helpfully guiding on what would work best with the venue. The result was we?d an outdoor wedding ceremony at the last minute because it was stunning out and it worked fabulously. Eugene on the day always had a huge smile, calming presence and full champagne flutes ready to go. An absolute dream to work with. Nothing too much to ask.

And the rest of the staff were honestly just perfect. Everything ran like clockwork and the guests had such positive feedback on the service in particular. The venue of course is stunning and having everyone stay on site was so handy, particularly as half the guests were from Italy with little English. After some recovery in the Spa, we?d a chill day 2 with a bbq on site and then took over the pub later on. Again the food was gorgeous.

As you can probably tell, can?t recommend highly enough!

We highly recommend Killeavy castle to any prospective couples - the staff, attention to detail, communication, responses to requests, atmosphere, food, drink and accommodation could not be faulted. We worked with Seidy and Eugene in the lead up to and on the big day and they couldn't have done enough for us. All waiting staff on the day were amazing and so courteous. We felt like celebrities for the day.
I wish we could re-live the best day of our lives.

My husband and I chose Killeavy as our wedding venue for so many reasons. The day we came to view the venue the staff were absolutely fantastic. They were friendly, answered all our questions, were so well informed and made our needs/wants for the day priority as best they could. The venue itself is stunning!! I'm a foodie and my husband works in conservation so when we were informed on the menu choices, and how the food was sourced for the venue it sounded amazing. After walking around the castle and finding out about the surrounding area we fell in love! It ticked all our boxes. Seidy was so on the ball on the led up to the wedding and kept us well informed about everything. We had our ceremony and reception at Killeavy. Originally I wanted the ceremony to be outside the castle, unfortunately it rained for about an hour right before the ceremony so everything was set up inside. The staff made the room look so beautiful and intimate that I was not disappointed! Eugene, who was the staff member coordinating our wedding for the day was amazing. He helped calm me down before the ceremony, as I got very emotional, he kept everything running so smoothly and made our ceremony to drinks to food to reception go by without a hitch. It honestly was the perfect day and I couldn't praise the venue, the food, and all the staff enough for everything they did. It was a very stress free. Can't wait to go back for our anniversary and reminisce on our wonderful day!

We cannot recommend Killeavy and all of their staff highly enough, we truely had the best day of our lives.
From the moment we booked until our wedding day the care we received and professionalism was second to none. Every detail I asked for was taken into account and all our personal touches with not a problem. Seidy was excellent and so welcoming with our planning and with everything we needed to organise our wedding. On the day Eugene was absolutely fantastic and helped make the day run so smoothly with the warmest welcome and making sure we were cared for and all our guests throughout the day and evening we were made to feel like he knew us on a personal level which was just so lovely. A 5* service completely. Our family and friends still talk about our wedding day and the excellent experience we all had at Killeavy Castle. If only we could redo it all!

Thank you from the bottom my out hearts for the most wonderful wedding day to remember forever.

From the moment we turned up the drive to view the venue we knew our wedding would take place there. There's just something so special about the place, then you meet the staff and do the viewing and you are just blown away by it all! All the staff are amazing, and the events and wedding team were great. They provided great advice, recommended great local suppliers and in the build up and on the day everyone just really helped make the day special. Everyone still talks about how brilliant the venue was and how spectacular the food was. Seidy and the team are brilliant at what they do. Getting ready and married at a castle really did live up to every little girls dream. We could not recommend Killeavy more, our day was just perfect!
