We had an amazing wedding day in Kinnitty Castle. The venue is fab and has so much to offer wedding guests between the beautiful recpetion rooms, dungeon bar, goregous courtyard and wedding hall.The wedding planners and staff were all fantastic and ensured that the day ran so smoothly. We were delighted with our choice of wedding venue and will definately recommend it to others!

Gavin played the most beautiful music during our ceremony. There was no song we requested that was not in Gavin's repetoire. He sang beautifully and added a fantastic atmosphere to the whole ceremony. We were both delighted and could not recommend Gavin highly enough.

Kinnitty Castle was the perfect venue for our small wedding. It felt like we had the place to ourselves for the day and the staff were so friendly and helpful. The food was perfect - sol delicious and piping hot, the rooms were beautiful - we were able to use different parts of the hotel during the day and it was just all perfect. Our guests loved the day and are still talking about it! Thanks to all the staff in Kinnitty for making our day so special.

For future couples looking for a venue, I honestly cannot fault Kinnitty castle in any department. One thing we were overwhelmed with was the customer service from each and every staff member, they went out of there way to make our wedding day special. The wedding coordinator Enda and also Aidan couldn't have done enough. They were calm and you could tell they have done this 100's of times. The manager Conor was super, helped us in every way, the Great hall where we had our cerenomy and meal was out of this world. It's better than the photos. The rooms were fantastic, not like any other hotel we've ever stayed in. They make you feel like royalty. If you want your wedding in a different setting than just a hotel, kinnitty has that special feel and style. 'Fairytale' wedding is what you will get, trust us. Thanks so much kinnitty we cant wait to return.

Kinnitty Caatke Hotel was the dream venue for us. It’s ‘old world charm’ makes the place very special. The staff are incredibly helpful and professional throughout. Any issues were dealt with swiftly and we were very happy with the service. On the day, the castle and the banquet hall looked amazing. They could not do enough for us. The food was delicious and we got loads of compliments from our guests about our choice of venue. We loved having our reception at Kinnitty and would highly recommend it to any couple.

Everything from start to finish about my experience was beyond excellent. From the moment I inquired about their wedding packages to the day of the wedding...the staff was super responsive! Planning everything through emails I was a bit fearful of things going sideways, however Aidan is a rockstar and had everything looking beyond flawless and moving like clock work. My guest were extremely impressed and had the best time!

You can only plan the best you can and hope your vision for your dream wedding comes to fruition. This was even more difficult planning from the states and having never been to the castle until the day before our wedding. We are beyond lucky enough to say that our wedding turned our more perfect than we ever could have planned and it truly was our dream wedding. This is all due to the incredible venue and staff. Aiden's assistance in planning, the bartenders, and servers were all on top of their game with customer service. Every course of the dinner was also so very delicious! Having activities at the hotel was key as well. Clay pigeon shooting on the morning of the wedding was a great way to settle the nerves and get everyone loosened up for the big day. The rooms! The rooms were ginormous and made the stay even more comfortable and accommodating. Last, our wedding pictures are beyond amazing with the castle, the castle grounds and wonderful interior of the castle as a backdrop.

The Venue Kinnitty is truly a unique venue - the old world charm and palpable atmosphere is hard to recreate. This is a genuine, gothic castle, not a castle or old house that has been modernised, the floors creak, the rooms are all unique and the great hall is like being in a Harry Potter movie. Our favourite thing about Kinnitty was that we had exclusive use of castle for the entire weekend - there were no guests staying aside from our wedding guests and we had full run of the castle which is something that comes with booking the venue (at no extra charge). Although it is a hotel, it doesn't feel like it. The new owners have carried out some much needed renovations which have really lifted the place - the walls are newly painted, changes have been made to the layout, new furniture has been added, the floor in the great hall has been varnished, the bedrooms have been modernised. Our guests had no complaints about the rooms and we saw several rooms which were all unique and stunning. The courtyard was absolutely fabulous, it was so nice to have a sun trap where people could have drinks before the meal and we took our family photos out here among our guests. The Dungeon bar for the late bar was great craic and there was a queue at the bar when we were heading to bed (at 4am!!!). We had our day two in this bar and the music that Kinnitty organised was second to none! We had the best night of our lives. The Staff The staff are so friendly, flexible and easy going in every way. They were very accommodating and allowed us to bring in whatever we wanted (aside from alcohol) and placed all our wedding signage around the wedding meaning that our wedding morning was hassle free. Simon met with us on several occasions including the night before to do a run through and his laid back attitude was really calming on the wedding weekend. He also organised for our colour scheme to be incorporated into the flowers around the hotel. Nigel is a complete professional and couldn't have done enough for us. Aidan kept the emails flowing in the lead up and the drink flowing at the bar! Mary did a fabulous job of the hall - the fresh ivy along the walls was really stunning. The wait staff were so professional (thanks Una for keeping me in the red wine!). The chefs are creative and do an excellent job. Even the cleaning staff in the morning were so friendly and accommodating. The Food The food was another one of our favourite things about Kinnitty - it was excellent, second to none - from the canapes at the reception, to the unreal menu choices to the fresh, homemade bbq on day 2, our guests are still talking about the unique and stunning meal. The wine choices were fantastic, we were really impressed by the wine that was included in the package and our guests have commented on it since. Location Located a 5 minute drive from a Catholic church, a Church of Ireland and having the facility to have civil ceremonies on site makes the logistics of having a wedding at Kinnitty another one of our favourite things about the venue. The drive to the church was so short for our guests. There are lovely woodland walks around the hotel for guests staying for day two. There are also so many photo opportunities on the grounds of the castle which meant that we got our photos done really quickly and they are stunning. All in all, the feedback from our guests, particularly from our families, has blown us away. We couldn't have asked for a better venue for us, we loved the unique-ness of it and would do it all over again. Thank you so much Kinnitty for making this the best day of our lives.

We would like to thank Simon and all the staff in Kinnitty for giving us the best day of our lives! We fell in love with Kinnitty Castle on our first visit and knew that it was the wedding venue for us. The castle is very unique with lots of old world charm and surrounded by an enchanting wood. From our first meeting with the wedding team we were certain we were in safe hands. All queries were dealt with promptly by Simon. No request was too big of an ask.Simon and the kitchen staff went to great lengths to ensure that all dietary requirements and allergies were looked after on the day for our guests. The accommodation team ensured that any guests with mobility issues were given rooms which more accessibility. We really appreciate the attention to detail from the staff and ensuring that our many tables decorations etc were put in place on the day. The Great Hall looked spectacular on the day - we loved the floral arrangements on the tables. The staff went above and beyond on our wedding day to ensure we had a great day. All the little touches didn’t go unnoticed. We’ve received so many compliments about our wedding meal from our guests. Our families stayed for 2 nights and we all enjoyed a session in the Dungeon bar the following night. Our sincere thanks to Simon and all the staff at Kinnitty for giving us such a wonderful experience.

We had a great day at Kinnitty castle on our wedding day... Staff were great and made our day so enjoyable, service at the dinner table was amazing we were never left waiting for our glasses to be filled the meal was beautiful...the only downfall for me was that I have always dreamed of a four poster bead and it seemed that the only room in the Castle without one was the bridal suit.

It was an absolutely amazing place. Beautiful location, attentive staff. Perfect.
Review by
Absolutely amazing venue. It’s like a privately hired castle for your wedding. Attention from the staff cannot be praised enough. Food was the only thing that out did the venue. Our guests talked about the food for weeks afterwards and have returned to Kinnitty Castle just to experience it again. This venue offers so much more than your run of the mill 5star hotel that are all copies of each other. This is truly old world charm to perfection. Our guests were so taken back by the staff and how friendly and helpful they all were. I really felt so proud the day of and after the wedding listening to the compliments.

The entire staff at Kinnitty Castle truly gave my husband and I our fairytale wedding. From beginning to end they couldn't do enough for us. I planned our wedding from America, and all of my questions and emails were met quickly, professionally, and in great detail. Specifically, Lindsay Corrigan, our wedding coordinator, made the overseas planning a breeze. She is so kind, patient, and helpful. I HIGHLY recommend this venue, and Lindsay Corrigan, to all future brides! Lindsay and the rest of the team at Kinnitty Castle make wedding planning simple and fun. All of my family and friends were raving about how wonderful the staff were and how helpful they were throughout the entire weekend. Their food was amazing hospitality is unmatched. Not to mention the gorgeous venue itself. The castle is simply stunning and made for some amazing wedding photos! We look forward to returning for a visit!

We had an amazing wedding weekend in kinnitty castle with our 5 children, friends and family. From the minute we checked in to when we left we were treated like royalty. The wedding crew and hotel staff were amazing and Lindsay, our wedding co ordinator was beyond amazing! Every little detail we wanted was done for us without question. Kinnitty castle also gave us a beautiful gift to remember our wedding weekend. The most magical place for a wedding, a weekend we will never forget. Thank you xx

The venue is spectacular, but the service was the real special part. We arranged our wedding at short notice here, and there was nothing they wouldn't help us to accommodate. Their wedding coordinator is really talented and so easy to work with- it made our day. Never a no, always a we can make it happen. And upon leaving, presented a gift of crystal glasses with our names etched in. 110% in everything, they made the magic happen...
Review by
The venue on the day looked wonderful, and the service was exemplary. My only issue was that some emails prior to the day were not responded to as quickly as we had hoped, but this wasn't a major problem and they dealt with any queries or requests in a very helpful manner. We held the ceremony in the grounds of the castle, and Kinnitty were very flexible in terms of delaying the start of this when it began to rain (thankfully this soon passed!). The staff were brilliant on the day itself and really helped to make it special for us

I suppose you could say our situation was a little different than most. We were planning our wedding at home in Ireland all the way from Canada with an 8 hour time difference. I didn’t know where to begin! We started an extensive search online for just the right venue. Our wedding wasn’t just our wedding, but was also a reunion for family members whom we hadn’t seen in the years since we moved abroad. So it was very important that we found just the right place. My parents offered to go and meet with the coordinator and go on a tour of one of our top choices, Kinnitty Castle. The first of many venues to be seen I was sure. My parents took photos and absolutely raved about the place. The beautiful location, stunning period rooms, amazing food and friendly staff. "There's nothing no to like" they said. Having been to a fair few weddings they were sure we wouldn’t find anywhere we’d like better. Kinnitty Castle was perfect and seemed to ‘fit’ us. From the very beginning, we put our faith in Lyndsey, the coordinator at the castle. We were very apprehensive doing so much planning, so far away, and had a lot of questions. With the 8 hour time difference it was difficult to communicate, I couldn't just call if I had questions or requests. This often meant emailing in the afternoon and having to wait until the next day to get a reply. But the reply was always there when I woke up. If it wasn’t Lyndsey, it was another member of staff. Someone always got back to me and put my mind at ease. This was a huge deal as planning a wedding is stressful enough and doing it from a different continent is certainly tough, but having people who are so easy to deal with made such a difference. One the day itself the staff went above and beyond what we expected. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to have our special day. I’m so glad we chose Kinnitty. I can’t even imagine what it would be like for something to go wrong on such an important day, and I have Lyndsey and the other staff members to thank for that. The day went by with a certain flow and there was absolutely no stress. We had certain expectations and they were exceeded. Our guests still talk about our wedding and the friendliness of the staff is always a topic. I’d recommend to anyone considering Kinnitty Castle to 100% choose them. You won’t be disappointed. We had absolutely no complaints. Their professionalism and courtesy just made our special day, that bit more special.

We had a fantastic wedding at Kinnitty Castle. The staff were so attentive and incredibly helpful and they made our guests feel so welcome and at home. Nothing was too much trouble- from ensuring specific dietary requirements were met to arranging then rearranging the bedroom guest list as per my instructions. The reception went so smoothly - Simon was on hand to guide us through the day and his gentle manner kept us calm and free from stress for the entire time. The food was exceptional! The guests were raving about the canapés which were served when we arrived back to the hotel from the church. The 4 course meal was incredible - not one person had a complaint to make! In the run up to the wedding we mostly used email to communicate. Our emails were answered practically immediately so any queries we had were resolved instantly meaning no stress! The rooms are amazing. If you like the splendour of Olde Worlde then Kinnitty Castle is the place for you! The giant four poster bed I stayed in on the eve of the wedding was beautiful, not to mention the fabulous hand carved bed in the bridal suite. It's by no means a run of the mill hotel where every corridor is identical to the next. Our guests had fantastic fun exploring the different corridors - it's actually a castle, not a castle on the outside and a regular hotel on the inside. It's a real castle! I genuinely can't fault any aspect of our wedding at Kinnitty. The staff were amazing, particularly Clair, Helen and Simon; the food was exceptional; the venue was breathtaking.

We had the most brilliant day, the venue is extraordinarily beautiful so it really doesn't matter what the weather is like outside. Our guests raved about the rooms, the medieval decor, the authenticity of the castle and the friendliness of everyone there. Highly recommended - we can't wait to go back for our anniversary.

When looking at wedding venues all we knew as a couple was that we did not want the "run of the mill" venue. And that is exactly what Kinnitty Castle is! The wedding team( Simon & Lyndsey) and the staff over all bent over backwards for our two day stay eg: From allowing us do a night time "treasure hunt" for the children that attended to a large "pre wedding dinner" nothing was out of the question. Our food was exceptional. Best two days ever!

Our wedding day was the best day ever and Kinnitty is the most beautiful venue. Food was second to none, I have received so many compliments about this ever since. And also, the service was suburb. The staff are all friendly , professional and are willing to help in any way they can. I cannot thank Kinnittys staff and wedding coordinators enough. They really ensured everything went smoothly on the day! I would happily recommend Kinnitty castle to anyone, it is in a beautiful location, the premises is wonderful, the staff are brilliant and the food is amazing - what more could anyone want!!!! Our family and friends also loved our banquet table, this is an unusual style and people have raved about it!!!! It's very different and we were delighted we could have this on the day! All I want now, is to rewind the clock and repeat the big day!!

I believe they are renovating the O'Carroll hall to remove the mezzanine level which had no sound system and there was a problem with our sound system during the speeches. Apart from that, our day went off without a hitch.

We had already expected our wedding at Kinnitty Castle to be something very special but we would never have dreamed of how unbelievable it would turn out to be. We had the most special day of our lives at the castle. The whole wedding party arrived from abroad and everything just went absolutely smoothly. Simon, Lyndsey and the whole time tended to our every need in such a natural way that it seemed they were always one step ahead of us. The food was fantastic and the setting in the castle grounds really provides a wedding with the surroundings it deserves. If you are looking for a magical place to "tie the knot" and have the best time of your lives, look no further, Kinnitty Castle is the place to be. Again we want to thank you so much for everything.

What an absolute dream wedding! The staff were amazing, nothing was too much trouble. On the day I could relax knowing that everything was taken care of. The venue's wedding coordinator worked away in the background and kept a watchful eye on everything all night, directing staff and ensuring everything ran smoothly. She was so in touch with what I wanted I couldn't have planned things better myself. There was so little input and effort needed on my part bith in the lead-up and on the day. Our guests raved about the food and the atmosphere of this great old building with all its old world charm. We simply love Kinnitty Castle and it will always hold a special place in our hearts. We could not have been happier.

From the moment we arrived at the castle, the night before our big day, until the moment we left, two days after, we had the most magnificent time. There was no issue too big or small for Simon and Lyndsay. Everything ran smoothly on our wedding day, and I am a self confessed organisation freak. The venues were set up beautifully. Exactly as I requested, with an eye on the small details. The food and service was excellent. Communication was always great, and I organized the wedding from Australia so this was important. Cannot wait to go back for our anniversary.

We had a fabulous day beautiful exclusive venue, excellent food and staff only downside accommodation while it needs to be maintained in it's period, it needs some upgrading and perhaps more attention to upstairs general house keeping unfortunately gave the worst room to a very particular bridesmaid my sister.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Kinnitty Castle. From the beginning of the process they were incredibly flexible, prompt, and easy to deal with. Simon was wonderful to work with and the entire staff provided such amazing service. The castle itself looked stunning for our wedding and even little details were handled without me even having to ask. In addition, pricing was affordable and you got so many extras included that would have been additional fees at other venues. So many of our guests said that ours was simply the best wedding they had ever attended. As a bride, I never felt stressed at all during the day as they just made everything run smoothly. Kinnitty provided an amazing venue and impeccable service. It was truly a fairytale come true. I highly recommend this venue and can't wait to return for our first anniversary!

On our first trip to Kinnitty Castle Hotel, we immediately fell in love with the character and charm of this stunning, authentic castle and knew that it was going to be perfect for our wedding reception, and perfect it was. We had our wedding reception in Kinnitty Castle Hotel on 12 September 2015. On reaching the top of the tree-lined driveway, our guests ascended the red-carpeted staircase, lined with candles and flowers, as they entered the wonderfully impressive 13th century castle. After passing through the beautiful courtyard, where everyone enjoyed pre-dinner drinks in the warm September sunshine, we were lead to the Great Hall of the O’Carrolls, a spectacular banquet hall, where we were seated at the perfectly decorated long tables and received excellent service and exceptional food. As a couple who had spent a lot of time planning our wedding day, it was so important to us that our guests enjoyed every minute of it and the food, staff and venue itself exceeded all our expectations, and all received glowing compliments from our guests! To say that our time in Kinnitty Castle was magical would be an understatement. Our wedding day itself was an absolute fairytale for us. We cannot overstate how pleased and impressed we were with the service, care and attention we received from all staff on the day, in particular Simon, Conor and Andrew. All three were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Simon was such a calm and reassuring presence on the day, always there for the littlest queries that we had and always so warm and kind, a true gentleman. We can’t wait to visit again and, as they truly loved the castle, we expect many of our guests will be returning again in the near future too! Again, thank you to everyone in Kinnitty Castle Hotel for making our wedding day the perfect celebration we hoped and planned for! We would absolutley love to return to the Castle as wedding guests soon! Stephanie and Gareth

Amazing venue, loved every single minute! We had civil ceremony in the great hall, and the decor was lovely, so atmospheric! If I had to do it all again, I wouldn't change a single detail! The staff were all so lovely, especially the singing bar man! Simon, Aoife and Cavan were all so helpful throughout. Totally in love with Kinnitty Castle, can't wait to go back for our 1st anniversary!

Kinnitty was a beautiful place to get married and the perfect size for our party if 106 people. There is a unique gothic character to the place and there are lovely walks in the woods and driveway for photo opportunities. We were very happy indeed with the care and attention we received on the day. We didn't have to give anything a second thought. It was just done in the background professionally and smoothly. The food was excellent. One small improvement that could be made was with communication coming up to the day. I was looking for information about the size of the seating plan frame, table numbers and size of the cake stand. In the end I just had to guess. It would be really helpful if Kinnitty made a PDF or a leaflet listing all of that kind of information so that I wouldn't have to ask about it at all. Overall though - a great wedding venue that I would highly recommend.

We cannot fault the staff, food or anything else at our wedding. The hotel presentation was stunning but not snooty or overly fussy. Simon was the ideal co-ordinator for us he just gets it. Our guests commented how relaxed the atmosphere was and how good the staff were to them

Kinnitty Castle Hotel is, in our opinion, the most perfect wedding venue. We celebrated our wedding there on the 3rd of September. We were greeted on arrival the night before by Simon Green, who had organised our big day for us. He showed us around the grounds and the hall and made sure we were happy with everything that was to be set for us for our ceremony the next day. We had a small gathering for our ceremony in the Great Hall and I was blown away by how beautiful it looked, candles and flowers, even a red carpet for me to make my grand entrance! Escorted by the lovely Aoife who was on hand with us all day. The table set for dinner looked so stunning we didn't want to spoil it by eating! But we did, of course and it was simply amazing! Cooked to perfection and served politely and efficiently by the staff. We continued to party into the night and were still enjoying drinks in the wee hours of the morning. We were extremely happy with our day, from beginning to end and we simply can not thank Kinnitty Castle enough for making our wedding so spectacular. The only problem is that we only get to do it once!! Thank you so much everyone!! Warmest Regards, Laura and Alan.

It was lovely to have such a beautiful and unique venue for our day and all of our guests commented on how lovely it is. The food was absolutely delicious. We would highly recommend Kinnitty to everyone and are so happy we had our wedding there.

Kinnity made our wedding day perfect with all of our requirements delivered and we are so happy that we chose Kinnity as our day could not have been more perfect. Special thanks to Aoife Horan, Cavan and the rest of the team. See you next month for our weekend break at the castle.

From the moment we drove through the gates of Kinnitty Castle we knew it was a special place. It exceeded our expectations. From day 1 the staff were so helpful and friendly, everything we asked for was catered for with the highest attention to detail possible. Cavan, Aoife and all of the team were fantastic in the planning process and they made our wedding day the most amazing day. Our photographs from the grounds of the hotel are fantastic and the food on the day was phenomenal. All in all I cannot recommend Kinnitty Castle highly enough. Thank you for making our dream wedding come true!

We knew once we had a look around the Castle that this is where we wanted to get married! Once we sat down with Cavan we realised that nothing was too much trouble. We had the usual nerves about our guests enjoying themselves and everything going to plan but we needn't have worried, Cavan and Aoife were on hand all day to make sure everything was ok, we didn't have to think about a thing! Thank you to all the lovely staff at Kinnitty Castle, we and our guests had the best time, I wouldn't change a single moment of our special day everyone had a ball!!

Kinnitty Castle exceeded our expectations, we are thrilled with our choice. The entire staff were helpful and thoughtful, the food was wonderful, and we were able to completely customise our wedding. I would highly recommend this venue to a friend and I'm very much looking forward to returning for our anniversary. Five stars, top notch.

From the moment we set foot in Kinnitty Castle we knew it was the venue in which to celebrate our big day. The ambiance of the castle and the friendliness of the staff made us feel right at home straight away. Aoife, Cavan and all the team were extremely helpful and supportive at every stage of the planning process. The day itself went without a hitch, thanks to the carefull coordination of the professionals at Kinnitty. All of our guests commented on the fabulous food, stunning scenery and charming location. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Kinnitty Castle as a venue for your wedding.

Cavan Dunne and all the personnel were absolutely fantastic and we just couldn’t have asked for a better hospitality. Everything went according to the plan, the decorations and design were beautiful, the food was delicious, our guests felt like they were in a movie, and the castle itself was simply mind-blowing. We would strongly recommend Kinnitty Castle Hotel for any couple who is looking for a magical and unforgettable wedding! Our complementary bridal suite was amazing and the present that we got from Kinnitty Castle was indeed wonderful. The Kinnitty Castle Hotel has truly made our wedding day so special, therefore we would like to thank everyone, and especially Cavan and Aoife, for making this “never-to-be-forgotten” day!!! With best regards.

We don't even know where to begin to thank you all for what an amazing wedding day we had on the 1st of June. The whole day and night could not have gone better, we both had an amazing day that we will never forget :) Some of our guests said it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. From start to finish all the staff couldn't do enough for us, from advise about wine at our menu tasting from the waiter, to checking in the day of the wedding and Aoife making sure we didn't see each other until the ceremony, from the friendly breakfast waitress the next day, to Cavan making sure Joeys uncle was able to get into the ceremony in his wheelchair, to the friendly waiting staff all day making sure the kids were ok and that everyone's glasses were full. We could not recommend Kinnitty Castle Hotel highly enough.

To all the staff at Kinnitty Castle Hotel. We would like to say a big thank you to each and everyone of you for making our wedding day the best day of our lives. The castle looked amazing on the day and was so warm and comfortable as it was a cold day outside. The food was amazing, it was better than we had expected. All our guests complimented on how good the food and service was and that it would be a wedding to remember. All three bars here serve top class Draft beers that you will find hard to beat anywhere else. Thanks so much Brian & Maureen

We held our civil ceremony here on 4th January & cannot praise the team enough. From the first time we met with Cavan, it was apparent that he was the epitome of organization, professionalism & helpfulness. in the lead-up to the day & on the day, everything was taken care of in a manner that made us as relaxed as possible. Our guests could not find fault with anything on the day & several of them are planning on going back in the near future. The venue was decorated beautifully on the day, everything was organized with precision & executed perfectly. Our guests have not stopped talking about the quality of food served on the day - exceptional to say the least. The team at Kinnitty are amazing at their jobs & in addition they could not have been more warm or welcoming to us & our guests. This wonderful venue is over-shadowed only by the amazingly professional & friendly team of people that work here. Thanks again to all at Kinnitty for a day us & our guests will never forget.

What an amazing day and what an amazing venue. We cannot thank the team at Kinnitty enough for making our special day so fantastic for us and all of our guests. Thanks so so much.

Our big day exceeded our expectations from the civil ceremony which we had in the Hall to our meal and music. The whole day was so memorable and all of our guests would agree, some saying it was the best wedding they've been to with lots of admiration of this wonderful venue. I didn't hear one complaint and it all ran so smoothly we were thrilled! The weather was bad on the day but this didn't even enter the equation. All of our guests complimented the staff on their help and friendliness. Both of us would definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking for a stylish wedding, and we will surely be revisiting over the coming years.

Neil & I had our wedding in Kinnitty Castle and I cannot recommend everything highly enough. From the moment we first viewed the Castle with Andrew until we checked out the day after our wedding we truly felt we could not of asked for more in terms of food, accommodation and service. All the staff went above and beyond what we expected and made our day so enjoyable for us and all our guests. I would recommend Kinnitty to everyone

Dear Cavan, Simon, Andrew and all the staff at Kinnitty Castle, We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you for making our wedding day on Saturday the 17th the most fantastic day of our lives!!! From start to finish it was a dream come true. Cavan, you were amazing to deal with from the start, you played a HUGE part in us choosing Kinnitty Castle Hotel in the first place as our wedding venue. You are so relaxed and calm and so organised and efficient, exactly what we wanted in a wedding coordinator. I am not surprised in any shape or form that you have won awards for what you do and I know you will go on to win many many more !!. On top of being a total professional as a wedding coordinator, you are just great fun and a genuinely nice guy who made the whole experience of planning a wedding so easy for us... this was really really appreciated by us especially as we are so busy anyway with our little girls. You were always so warm and kind to Siun and Aoibhinn also which never went unnoticed.. All the staff at Kinnitty are so friendly and helpful and genuine good craic! We had such a laugh with Simon, Conor and also some of the House Keeping Girls, Maura and another lovely lady, Linda) Mary also who was working in the banqueting hall was also lovely. The receptionists were all sooo lovely and nothing was ever a problem. Many people after the wedding commented on the staff and how great they are. Even on the night of the wedding they were so calm and efficient in serving the meals. Simon and Cavan, you were both wonderful at the reception also. Andrew, we met you at our tasting and you were brilliant and so efficient too any requests that we had were fulfilled on the day . We can honestly say our day was perfect and went without hitches! The flowers around the castle, the toiletries in the bathroom, the music played upon our entrance, it was all just fab! And of course Kinnitty itself looked so beautiful. The candles in the venues, the decor, everything! It just has the wow factor and we left on Monday the 19th so attached to the place and genuinely sad to be leaving....It will from now on be our special place and where we will continue to return. But as Robbie said in his speech "yes itºs a great location but its the staff who make the experience..." I couldn't not mention the chef and the superb food on the day....so delicious! Again, it was commented on many many times and we just feel so proud and happy that we chose Kinnitty as our venue to throw the party of our lives. We just want everyone to know about this very special castle and to share our experiences far and wide. Thank you also for our beautiful champagne flutes engraved with our names. We will treasure these forever...I actually feel we've probably forgotten something or someone in the thankyous and if we have we apologise.. It just means a lot to Robbie and I to let you know how you all have a very special place in our hearts and you made us one very happy couple on our big big day...You wont get rid of too easliy now and we ll see you soon hopefully !! Lots of love and warm wishes to you all!

We had the most perfect wedding day,and that was thanks to all the staff at Kinnitty Castle. The day went without a hitch , Cavan the wedding cordinator was exactly what a nervous bride needed , he was reassuring, calm and professional nothing was a problem or too much trouble for him. The rest of the staff from management to restaurant and bar staff are so helpful and friendly. Our guests loved the castle and its quirky atmosphere, beautiful rooms , food , library and dungeon bars and peaceful grounds. We cannot thank the staff at Kinnitty enough for giving us a very special day, one that our guests still talk about almost a year later! It's a very special castle , and we will be returning to it for many years to come.

Hi cavan, Well we are back from our honeymoon and back to reality! We watched the wedding video this morning, I wanted to wait until I had seen it before sending you a mail! It was so lovely to see it all again and be reminded of what a great day it really was! I don't really know where to start, our experience with Kinnitty from start to finish was flawless! Well anyway here goes, We had the most amazing wedding day in Kinnitty, every member of staff throughout the hotel cannot do enough to help. From the girls that delivered breakfast to a very excited bride and bridesmaids in the morning, to the bar staff at 4 am the following morning everyone went above and beyond the call of duty! All our guests were delighted with the castle and everyone has since been full of praise! Dinner the night before was amazing, as was the meal on the day. The lady who looked after the top table on the day deserves a special mention, she was amazing! She is fabulous at her job! Cavan, we have so enjoyed dealing with you throughout the planning stages. Literally nothing was too much trouble, your 'can do' attitude is literally amazing! Still can't believe we never managed to find anything for you to say no to. You are a voice of reason and island of calm on what can be a very stressful morning. We picked our wedding album photos last night and you are in! I don't know how many wedding dresses you have hitched up and helped to carry to the great hall but you are a pro!! The day itself ran like clockwork and I can't even imagine how much work that takes! It looks effortless but I don't even dream it is! I am still amazed that you managed to accommodate my cheeky cousins who wanted something that wasn't on the menu! Tell the chef he/ she was just too good, I have never heard of a hotel doing that. I really appreciate it but you should they should really not have asked! Finally, and this is totally legendary!!!! The staff, while cleaning the room at the end of the night searched high and low until they found my cousins lost ear ring. She was just amazed they would go to this effort! It was a small stud ear ring that had actually ended up in 2 parts but they still managed to find it! It turns out it was a Tiffany ear ring and quite valuable so she was delighted to get it back!! Will you make sure to say thanks to all from us, we really appreciate it! Lastly would you believe we met the couple that got married in Kinnitty on the 31st of December in one of the hotels we stayed in in South Africa? Paul & Karen I think their names were!! They had a fabulous day too so we had a great old chat at the pool!! I can't believe it's all over but we have amazing memories of Kinnitty and it's staff for many year to come. We wish Kinnitty all the success it deserves! If anyone ever needs a chat with a previous bride and groom point them in our direction! Bye for now but looking forward to celebrating our first anniversary with you already

Hi Cavan, Apologies that I am only getting to reply to you now. I'm not sure if I am to include the testimonial in this email or on the website itself however I didn't know where I was to post it on the website so hopefully you can add this to the testimonial page. (If I have to add it myself you might let me know where to add it)

Hi Cavan, I hope you are keeping well :) I meant to send on a review alot earlier, it completely slipped my mind. So here it is: Our wedding was on October 19th 2012 and it was the most amazing day from start to finish. Our nerves were wrecked and we truely didnt relax until we got to Kinnitty and knew we were in the safe hands of Cavan and Andrew. Cavan was our wedding co-ordinator, he was brilliant from start to finish. Nothing was a problem, we emailed and called many times before the actual day and he was always available and exteremly helpful. On the day itself Cavan and staff were amazing, they were so polite and helpful constantly checking in with us to make sure everything was ok and going to plan. The venue looked just magical with every one of our requests in place. The food was beautiful, and everyone commented on how good it was to us afterwards which was such a comfort. The whole day flowed seemlessly with the staff working hard in the background but never showing stress in their attitudes. I really cant emphasis just how nice and helpful they all were on the day. All the fires were lit in the castle which just added a cosy feel which we all loved. I was initially a little worried that the castle would be chilly in places (which cant be helped in older buildings) but everywhere was perfectly warm which was brilliant given it was freezing outsite. The night went perfectly, the afters food was again so tasty. Our guests particularly loved the mini fish 'n' chips cones. There was plenty for everyone. After all our music was over we all decended to the Dungeon Bar. The guy behind the bar was great fun and didnt mind our singing attempts, I think I might have even seen him join in :) From start to finish Kinnitty was the perfect venue for our wedding, the staff, food and atmosphere were all perfect. We cant wait to make a trip back. Hope this is ok Cavan, Its all meant :) Cheers,

Hi Cavan Thats no problem, please see below hope it is ok: We got married on the 8th of September 2012 in Kinnitty Castle and had the most amazing wedding day we could have ever hoped for. From the moment we arrived in the Castle everything we wanted and needed was taken care of to the highest standard. All of the staff from the reception to the bar and the banqueting hall were absolutely fantastic. The venue is so magical and that alone in itself created an amazing atmosphere. The Castle has amazing individual bedrooms and we had the whole place to ourselves the night of our wedding which made it so unique and personal. The most talked about element of our day from guests was how amazing the food was and many commented on how it was the best food any of our guests had ever had at a wedding. We had a fantastic experience in Kinnitty Castle from the moment we met Cavan our wedding co ordinator to the moment we left. Cavan was always just a phonce call or email away more than willing and able to help me out with any of my requests, his warm and friendly attitude made my wedding planning so much more relaxed and I knew that we would be taken care of 100%. There was not a single issue the day of our wedding everything went so smoothly and it was the best day of our lives. I dont think we would have had this magical experience anywhere else but in Kinnitty Castle and I would not hesitate for one second to recommend Kinnitty and its wonderful to staff to any bride to be! Hope this is ok Cavan, talk soon best of luck in the awards you really deserve it I have voted and will get on to some more friends to do so too! :)

Dear Cavan People who were guests at the wedding are still talking about the day the venue and the service. We are very grateful to you and all the staff for our wonderful day the lead up to it was very Professional with the tasting. The building back drop has given us brilliant wedding photos the staff were lovely to us all. You listened very well to what we wanted on the day and it was all executed with first class professionalism and the food standard was fantastic. I would personally take any calls for perspective couples and give the whole package the highest Recommendation. As a couple looking for the special day you surpassed all expectations. See you soon

Hi Cavan, Myself and Joe are great thanks. We both hope you do brilliantly in the awards, you deserve it. I'm not so sure how to leave a testimonial on the website, but i'm sure you can add the following to the website: Thank you so much to Cavan, Andrew and all the staff at Kinnitty Castle Hotel for giving us the most memorable day of our lives. From the time we booked the hotel, throughout the whole process, the many emails and questions, nothing was ever a problem and Cavan especially was always there to help. From beginning to end, the day went off without a hitch, the food excellent and the staff so pleasant. I can't recommend Kinnitty Castle Hotel enough. Many thanks,

Dear Cavan, A huge thank you to yourself and all the staff at Kinnitty Castle for hosting the most amazing wedding reception for us. The staff really could not do enough to keep us happy, and everything from the clay pigeon shooting you arranged to ease my nerves on the morning of the wedding through to the final drink in the residents bar at 4am was absolutely perfect. Our guests particularly enjoyed the opportunity to stay in a 13th century Castle, and the reception will last long (for the best of reasons) in both our and our guest’s memories. From the moment we first met you, we felt that you would help organise a fantastic wedding day for us as the wedding co-ordinator, and you definitely met our high expectations. We cannot thank you enough. Thanks,

Hi Cavan, here is a testimonial, we had our wedding in Kinnity castle on August 2nd 2012, we cannot praise highly enough the warm welcome and quality of service we received from all the staff at Kinnity castle, the food the setting and the attention to detail was second to none. All our guests spoke about the wedding as being one of the best they attended. A special word of thanks to the wedding coordinator Cavan who from our first meeting could not have been more professional and helpful to us, we would have no hesitation in recommending Kinnitty castle for your wedding day.

I can't believe it's already a month since our wedding day! I just wanted to send a little note of thanks for all you did to make it the most memorable, beautiful and the happiest day of our lives. Immediately after, and ever since, our big day, we have received numerous compliments on our choice of venue. Our guests were so impressed with the beauty of the venue, the excellent quality of the food and the friendliness and accomodating nature of all staff. I sincerely hope you pass on our thanks and compliments to Anthony for the meal (it was divine!) and all staff in the castle for their efficiency and, particularly, for being so good with the children that we had present on the day (their parents were extremely impressed and grateful). On a personal note to Cavan and Andrew, we simply couldn't have had such a fantastic day without you. From the first day we met, you both made organising our wedding day not only easy, but thoroughly enjoyable. Despite the fact that you do this sort of thing a number of times a week, we never once felt as if we were just another day's work for you. We genuinely felt like we were dealing with friends, and that is a testament to how good you are at what you do. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with you both and, although it doesn't seem nearly enough, Anthony and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything. If ever needed, we would be glad to provide references or testimonies for websites, magazines, anything at all! We wish you and all the staff of Kinnitty the very best for the future, knowing you will continue to do a marvelous job there. We look forward to visiting you all again and for every anniversary with which we are blessed. With fond regards,

Hi Cavan, Andrew and all the Kinnitty Castle Staff, I just wanted to touch base with you guys now that we are back to reality and all the wedding hype is well and truly over. Myself and Seán would just like to express our gratitude for all the effort that was put into making our wedding day so special. We really had the most perfect day from start to finish and the majority of that was down to you guys, several people said that it was the best wedding they had ever attended! From the moment we saw Kinnitty Castle, we knew that it was the only place we wanted to get married and we could not have been happier with the level of service we received from every member of staff. We got so many compliments from our guests on the food in particular, (The fish and chips in particular were a big hit!) but also the atmosphere, the rooms and the service from the staff. We wanted to say a particular thank you Andrew and Cavan, who were amazing in the run up to the day, going over every little detail, but also to Una and Simon, who looked after us so well on the top table and even brought Seán out a fresh dinner after his went cold when he was speaking to some of the guests! We would not hesitate to recommend Kinnitty for any event, and we will definitely be making many a return visit. Thank you so much and we hope to be in touch again soon

To all the team at Kinnitty Castle, We would like to say a huge thank you for everything that was done on the 26th May 2012 for our wedding. We had an amazing day made all the better by having it in Kinnitty Castle. The whole team; Cavan, Andrew and all the staff really made it a memorable day and everything went like clockwork. All of our guests were extremely impressed by the food, beautiful grounds and service. Having an unusually hot summer’s day for Ireland (26°) meant that we could have our prosecco reception outside and Cavan coordinated everything perfectly. We could not recommend Kinnitty Castle highly enough and are delighted that we spent the most important day of our lives with our friends and family around us at Kinnitty Castle. Thanks again,

Hi Cavan, I hope all is well with you. We are not long back from our delayed honeymoon, we had a fab time. I hope you had a lovely Christmas. Myself and Fran want to thank you for such a fantastic day on Nov 19th. We still can’t believe we organised everything in 4 months. We couldn’t have done this without you. We really appreciate all your help, attention to detail and great advice even down to recommending suppliers of our flowers and cars. You made everything so easy for us and the day went like a dream. We pinched ourselves on the day as we couldn’t believe how perfect everything was. Our guests are still talking about the fabulous food and of course the magical location and the beautiful Christmas decorations. We can’t wait to return. Thank you so much Cavan and team. See you Soon, Warm Regard

Hi Cavan, I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks a million again for such a great weekend. We loved every minute of our wedding day and and the day after. All your staff were fantastic and everyone has commented on how helpful and nice everyone was. The rooms were spotless and so cosy it felt like a home away from home and thanks to Mary and all the cleaning staff no one wanted for anything. As for Clodagh and the girls at the front desk i couldn't of asked for anything else they couldn't have done enough for us through out the weekend. The food was amazing the night before the wedding, the wedding dinner and the BBQ the day after, and thank you for adding some extra food on for the BBQ for the late arrivals. Yourself and andrew were just fantastic and made everything so easy and took all the stress from us, we did not have one bad thing to say throughout the whole weekend from rooms, food, staff, music, ambiance, everything was perfect! Thank you for all the extras you gave to us over the weekend they were much appreciated. Thank you for making everything so easy for us we really had the best weekend ever and we will definitely be back down to you guys for future events. It was definitely the best run and managed venue we have bee in in a long time. Best Regards

Dear Cavan, Thank you for your very kind words. We certainly wanted to give you feed back as we both had time to reflect on the events of the day. Overall we were very happy with the level of service provided. That included the presentation of the hotel itself on the day and the drinks reception. Some friends of mine noted that food was promptly handed around by staff which meant that guests didn't have to look for the canapes etc. The reception itself ran very smoothly even though photography ran over time. The food was of excelllent quality. Both family and friends remarked on the excellent portion size and speed at which it was served. The staff were very pleasant and polite. They were very attentive. Tradtional background music during the meal was asked for but it didn't go as planned. the banquet hall was well decorated and well presented. My family and friends have not stopped talking about the atmosphere Kinnitty had. That's exactly what we wanted. We want to thank you for giving us the day that we wanted so much. We barely noticed the rain with such surroundings as Kinnitty! I hope this is helpful. We will definitley be back for anniversaries etc.! Regards,

Dear Cavan and all staff at Kinnitty Castle Hotel, What can we say only the biggest thank you to you all for making our day so special! From the moment we arrived, the entire day and night was flawless. You allowed us to be 100% worry free because we knew you had everything completely under control. Nothing was ever too much when we were organising the wedding, and on the day you went over and beyond to help us and to make sure we and our guests were thoroughly looked after. We just loved the table in the middle of the courtyard for our reception drinks, with rose petals in the shape of a big love heart with the glasses of champagne in the middle…such a beautiful touch! Cavan, you were so professional and we felt so calm knowing you were in charge, thank you for everything! The amount of our family and friends that remarked on how good the food was and how brilliant you were was incredible. To anyone thinking of having their wedding at Kinnitty Castle Hotel, book book book, you will not regret it! We felt like royalty.

Our wedding weekend at Kinnitty Castle surpassed all my expectations. The castle itself was beautifully decorated on the day and the service we received was excellent. All of the staff were so helpful during the day itself and in the lead-up to the wedding. I really feel that one of our best decisions in planning the wedding was choosing Kinnitty Castle as our venue. I cannot speak highly enough about the team in Kinnitty Castle (Cavan, Andrew, Simon & all the staff). From start to finish the care, attention & assistance we received was outstanding. The food was excellent, the venue was fabulous with a really intimate and enchanting atmosphere. If you want to have your big day in a special and memorable venue & setting, I would recommend Kinnitty Castle highly!

We cannot recommend highly enough Kinnitty Castle. From the onset, the service was second to none, attention to detail was above and beyond our expectations. From the food to the flowers, everything was perfect. Cavan was a pleasure to deal with and simply couldn't have been more helpful. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day. Cannot praise Kinnitty Castle and their staff highly enough. Well Done to all involved, and we are very grateful ye made our day so special.

Kinnitty Castle exceeded all of our expectations for our wedding day, and provided the most memorable of wedding locations. The staff were fantastic throughout the day, and the historic charm of the castle added massively to the atmosphere on the day. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and that was purely because of Kinnitty Castle and its staff. The food was superb, definitely the highlight of all our guests day. The venue is gorgeous each bedroom individual and unique but also very good room rates for guests. All of the staff were so helpful and there was no query too big or too small! The wedding planners were very prompt with replies to my questions and the packages on offer are extremely competitive yet I know that the standard of service provided at Kinnitty Castle cannot be matched. Truely a magical place I would highly recommend any bride and groom to visit and see for themselves. Thank you all so much.

Dear Cavan,Simon and the team at Kinnitty Castle, Thank you so much for helping to make our Wedding Day absolutely magical. The service we received from yourself and all the staff was outstanding. A big thanks to Helen for her next day idea for the wish tree. It looked wonderful. Everyone commented on the fantastic venue, the Banquet Hall set up, the staff and the excellenent food. "Best Wedding food and Best Roast Beef" were some of the comments made. compliments to Anthony and his team. The whole atmosphere, the ambience,the various different room's set ups were all perfect. Betty did a wonderful job on the flowers. We really appreciate all the patience and help that made our day so wonderful,stressfree and enjoyable. Thanks to Orla for a top class babysitting job and to Ray for his patience on those very late nights/early mornings in the Dungeon Bar. A huge thank you to Cavan who went above and beyond his duties and was so accommodating in every task. Thanks to Cavan, Andrew and all the team at Kinnitty Castle for making our wedding reception so special and enjoyable. Nothing was ever a problem when dealing with them and making the reception arrangements and they delivered bigtime on the day itself. All of our guests really enjoyed the day (and night!) in Kinnitty Castle and were seriously impressed with both the venue and the banquet. Thanks a million

We got married in December and had our reception in Kinnitty Castle. What I can only describe as the best day of my life was made ever better by the absolutely fantastic and wonderful staff of Kinnitty Castle. I honestly cannot praise the staff enough from our wedding co-ordinator Cavan to Andrew & Simon (who took fantastic care of us & our guests on our second night in the hotel) to all the waiting staff who served the dinner with such speed and efficiency that my guests are still raving about the excellent service they received. I have never heard so many compliments about the quality of the dinner and the wonderful staff all of which is truly deserved. It is a fairytale location and we really were treated as royalty. We stayed in the castle the night after our wedding and the service and food was just a perfect as the wedding day itself. I cannot recommend Kinnitty Castle enough as a wedding venue, it really is a dream come true venue and the banqueting hall is so magical it took our breath away. Thank you so much for being part of the most special day of our lives and for making it all the more special by having it in Kinnitty Castle. Cavan, as our wedding co-ordinator you were absolutely brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. You were so accommodating with all of our requests, a true gent! We can't wait to get back to visit soon.
