My wife and I chose the Lord Bagenal Inn as our wedding location for a number of reasons. Firstly, I have been visiting since I was a child and it is one of my family's favourite places to go for dinner in the area. Secondly, their prices and menu were excellent and fitted perfectly into our budget especially with all of the complimentary extras like flowers, center pieces and family suites that they provide. Finally, I have been to family weddings there in the past and enjoyed every second of the care and attention given to the guests not to mention the couples. Both sets of couples also highly recommended the venue. Needless to say, it certainly didn't disappoint! Our guests could not find a fault with the food. The amount of people that commented on the quality (and quantity) of the food let's you know the delicious meal we received. My dad and fellow bride were also delighted with the wine choices and really enjoyed choosing the wines for the evening. Every member of staff we encountered from Sue the wedding planner to Neill who took care of us on the day, the ladies on the front desk and the security guards that let the foreigners use their mobile numbers as a contact number for the taxi's at night, took care of us to the highest level. The venue is beautifully laid out and convenient even for people that are not as mobile as others and again, the staff were there to assist any guests that required it. Close by there are many beautiful locations available for your photos - around the actually hotel, down by the bridge and river or at Garrison House close by. Our wedding album is made even more picturesque because of the hotel. The only thing that made our day better that I could have expected was breakfast the next morning. This is a wonderful wedding location and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

From the very first time we met the wedding planner, Sue, at a wedding fair in City West in Dublin in September 2017 to the day of our wedding in November 2018, Sue and all of the staff at the Lord Bagenal were nothing short of fantastic. Always highly professional and extremely helpful, they made sure we got a wedding day more special than we ever could have hoped for. The staff are all friendly and personable. I get the impression that most of the staff have worked there for a long time and are very happy in there work. All of the guests I have spoken to remarked on how delicious the dinner was and were very impressed with the portions. Many of them noted that the dinner was actually hot when served which is not an experience they have had at many other weddings! When deciding to have our wedding at the Lord Bagenal, we told them that one of the most important things to us was that everything ran on schedule. They promised that we would be having our first dance well before 10 p.m. and, true to their word, we were on the dance floor at half 9. The hotel recommended that we hire the local wedding band, Fiesta, and so we booked them for our entertainment. We are delighted we took their advice because the band were fantastic and the dance floor was full all night. All of our friends said it was the most fun wedding they were ever at! The whole day and night and was an absolute success and we actually couldn't be any happier with how everything went. We could not find fault with a single thing about the day. We highly recommend the Lord Bagenal if you want to have a very special wedding day :-)

Sue, Niall and all the staff were so friendly and professional in the run up , on the day and after our wedding. They put us at ease from the word go, They catered for our 3 children& nothing was to much hassle! The food was amazing and all our guests raved about it and the quantity of it. The Lord Bagenal also provided a fab back drop to our photos out on the marina! We couldn't recommend the Lord Bagenal highly enough and we wouldn't change a thing about our wedding day!

I don’t know where to start. The wedding coordinator Sue was available to us at the end of the phone or email for the full lead up from booking to the wedding day. The front desk staff the same. The chef allowed us to creat our own menu including items not on the menu. The food was supreme. Everyone was happy with the taste the quantity and the quality of food. The rooms are fantastic and the price was so reasonable and if I dare say cheap. On the day everything was perfect. The details covered for us were just excellent. The staff could not be any more friendly, willing to please and so professional and so helpful to everyone. Not just us bride and groom but every single guest we had. Highly recommend them for any occasion.
Response from Lord Bagenal Inn
Thank you so much for taking the time to review your wedding day at the Lord Bagenal. Congratulations to you both and look forward to welcoming you back.

We chose the Lord Bagenal over some other hotels that had better priced packages because it offers more character than many other hotels in the locality. We had both the ceremony and the reception at the hotel, they had the Marina Room set up beautifully for both events. Sue was very helpful in organising the whole day and on the day itself Niall was tremendously attentive to both ourselves and our guests. Each and everyone of our guests were genuinely impressed with the meal and the venue. Some even regarded it as one of the best wedding meals they had. The quality was top notch. There is a reason the Lord Bagenal constantly wins Best Wedding Venue awards.

We had an amazing wedding day thanks to Sue, Niall, Mike and all of the staff at the Lord Bagenal. They couldn’t have been more accommodating and the planning was a breeze thanks to their expertise. All of our guests commented on the quality of the food, great service and how well the hotel looked. The rooms were lovely too. The day from start to finish was relaxed and stress free. Best day ever! Carol & Debbie

Great value, great food and lovely staff. Not a single complaint from any of our nearly 200 guests. Bedrooms are a high standard also. The village is so relaxing and it was great to get away from the hustle and bustle of Dublin for a few days. I'm from Dublin and with the good times back I found hotels are back to ripping people off. Not here though...

Delighted to read your review thank you Paul & Graceita

The Lord Bagenal is an absolutely fantastic wedding venue.We are over the moon with the treatment we and our 290 guests received here.No stone was left unturned.Every little detail was perfect.The food was delicious and hot. Our guests are still raving about it.People also commented on how nice all of the staff were.James the manager/owner and Sue the wedding planner were especially great to deal with.They really made us feel so important, like we were the only wedding ever to take place there even though they have weddings every week! There is lovely natural light coming into the ballroom during dinner.The dance floor is beside the bar.The lobby is fab for drinks reception and there is an outdoor deck to sit at the river if the weather cooperates!We also hosted a bbq the day after the wedding and this too was lovely.It is also worth mentioning that the staff in the residents bar are very accommodating.Choosing this hotel was the best decision we could ever have made for our wedding!

From the first.day we walked into the lord bagenal day to enquire about our wedding Sue & her team were nothing but helpful. We were made to feel very comfortable & that anything we asked for was possible. Even though we had a small wedding we were made to feel as special as a couple that was having a large wedding. On the day itself james & the staff were outstanding. They made sure our guests & ourselves wanted for nothing & we were able to relax & enjoy our day.

We had our wedding in the Lord bagenal May 2015 and have to say that both Sue and James were fantastic to work with. They catered for all our guests needs. Food on the day was amazing we still have people complimenting the food. The service on the day was excellent all the staff were so helpful. We had a sweet table on the day which the staff set up for us too and everything went smoothly on the day. I would most definitely recommend the Lord bagenal for their top class service.

"At all times, all of our concerns were realised and dealt with and acted upon...things that we didn't even think of were done to the excellent standard. It's the difference with going with the Lord Bagenal regardless of what's being asked, you are experienced in catering for Weddings and do it anyway...doing stuff without being asked...amazing."

Family run hotel with a lovely balance between the contemporary and the traditional located in the small village of Leighlinbridge, Co Carlow. Different to the usual run of the mill hotel in that sense. Small but new bridal suite, easy to negotiate price and tailor a package to suit your needs. Grounds are ok, nice boardwalk down to boats.

Thank you for your comments. Sue

James and his team at the Lord Bagenal Hotel were absolutely fantastic! Their attention to detail is second to none. Their advice on every aspect of the day was invaluable. Everything went so smoothly. From the arrival drinks and canapés to the final person leaving the dance floor everyone was looked after in a very special way. The guests at our wedding still talk about the food, wine and atmosphere. We cannot recommend James and The Lord Bagenal highly enough. A unique venue with wonderful management and staff who really went above and beyond to ensure our day was extra special.
Response from Lord Bagenal Inn
Aileen & Edmund that's what it's all about making your wedding day a day to remember after all you only get one chance to do it right!
