Orlaith and the team at Powerscourt House are incredible. There was no ask too big and they were so responsive and helpful while we were planning our big day. The venue itself is absolutely stunning. We had bad weather on our wedding day so didn't get as much use of the gardens as we would have hoped for photos, but it really made no difference because the venue worked so well and is so beautiful and our photographer got beautiful shots indoors. The ballroom itself is so grand and elegant and when it is dressed and decorated it is so impressive. So many of our guests commented on the food, service and the staff on the day and said that everything was just excellent. I would highly recommend the venue to anyone planning their wedding.

Our experience at Powerscourt was beyond a dream. Orlaith co-ordinated everything seamlessly in the year before the big day and Maria was there until the very end of the night attending to every little detail, keeping everything running smoothly while still adapting to all of our last minute requests (I don't know how she did it). Orlaith is beyond human with her ability to respond to everything in lightening fast time, with all the answers to all our questions, accommodating our requests, huge flexibilty with visits, vendors, everything. The girl is amazing. I cannot stress enough how easy she made the process. And having said this, we were still given the space to make our own decisions and to think about what we wanted. Goes without saying that the venue is breathtaking but it was truly the team that made our wedding the most perfect day we could ever have imagined. I cannot ever thank them enough, the girls are the defnintion of a dream team. I don't believe you could get better.

We had our wedding there on 5th October and we received a 5 star service from the very start. Conrad and his team are so professional and accommodating. The venue is stunning and worked well for our 75 guests. We received great feedback from our guests on the venue and service. We would highly recommend Powerscourt House for your wedding and Conrad will make your day so easy.

Excellent service throughout. Very helpful and accommodation to requests even up to the day of the wedding and after.

It?s not the cheapest venue but you 100% get what you pay for and for a summer wedding with long evenings getting the gardens and the view it?s well worth it

We cannot recommend Powerscourt House and Conrad from Feast Catering enough!! Conrad was our point of contact and was there for us from start to finish and such a pleasure to deal with.
Throughout the planning he was always available, listened to all of our requests and responded (almost immediately) with the most flexible and helpful attitude, I honestly don't think there was anything he would not try make happen:)
On our wedding day he was so professional and executed the plans to perfection, along with Maria (the event design company). We got many compliments from guests about them both because the service was seamless and the external vendors set all dealt with smoothly and unnoticeably.
The space is a beautiful canvas to begin with, especially having access to the gardens for additional pictures, but these guys just exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much!

We cannot thank Conrad and the staff enough for the most amazing wedding day we could possibly imagine! Throughout the process we worked with Conrad and he was outstanding to say the least. He made sure throughout the day that we did not have to worry about anything no matter how big or small! Our guests consisted of people from as near as Enniskerry and as far as Boston and New York and they were so impressed with the grounds and venue and have not stopped talking about the most beautiful wedding they have ever been too! My beautiful wife wont stop talking about wanting to do it all over again! Thank you to Conrad and everyone else that made our wedding day nothing short of perfect!!!

September 1st 2018 was a magical day for both of us - as all wedding days should be. But a huge part of the magic was made by Conrad, the team at Feast, and of course, the beautiful setting of Powerscourt House. Selecting Powerscourt House as our wedding venue was an easy choice - it's stunning and exactly what we had in mind, but we hoped the service, the food, the ambiance, and all the rest, would also live up to the setting and what we envisioned. Suffice to say it did. Conrad was a great support on the day and in the lead up to the wedding - he was a real pleasure to work with and at all times put us and our wishes first. The service staff were prompt, attentive and friendly. And the food was fantastic. All in all, we had the best day of our lives and, looking back now, are delighted we chose to spend it at Powerscourt House.

We had an amazing day!! The venue was stunning and our guests commented on the fantastic level of service and amazing food. Feast catering were great at allowing us to insert our own summer dessert option. Conrad is a great asset to their team, was always contactable and extremely helpful during the months leading up to the wedding as we were planning from abroad. Conrad was also great at ensuring that the the day ran calmly and smoothly and in coordinating with all our vendors. Stunning setting, great team and delicious food. Our wedding was everything we had envisioned and the memorable setting in great weather was perfection.

It has taken a few months to take a step back from the most magical wedding day and reflect and come up with the right words to express our thanks and admiration for Conrad, Feast Catering and Powerscourt House & Gardens. We couldn't have imagined it any better. Conrad, you are truly amazing. So calm, flexible and understanding, you are great to work with. Your team also did a tremendous job. All the ideas and hard work leading up to it all came together and you really made our wedding day what it was - we CAN'T THANK YOU ENOUGH. You made it easy to completely trust in you and your team and let go on the day. Feast, even months later we are still getting praises for how good the food was - everyone especially LOVED the goat cheese tart. Powerscourt as a setting was perfect as well - of course anyone who has been already knows what a beautiful place it is but the rooms upstairs for dinner & dancing were perfectly situated and really didn't need much to make it wedding day ready. They are beautiful on their own. We were lucky enough to get a very sunny day and held our ceremony outdoors - logistically not the easiest but Conrad made it possible and we couldn't be happier. I won't go on and on about all the things that went right on the day but just another huge thank you so for everything!

We couldn't be more thrilled with our experience with Feast. Conrad made us feel like nothing was too much trouble to arrange, and was an absolute pleasure to deal with. From the first canap?s through to the midnight snacks, everything was fresh, delicious and served with a smile. I think I am safe in saying that every single one of our guests had an amazing day, and we have Feast (and some incredible weather) to thank for that.

The Best Day of Our Lives
Married on 16th Jun 2017
"We had the most fantastic, special day in probably the most spectacular wedding venue in Ireland. From the scenery to the food, our guests and ourselves were just blown away with the day. The ballroom is such a stunning room to have a reception, as are the beautiful gardens. Everything went perfectly, Conrad and the team were just so professional and helpful and it really was the best day of our lives."

My now husband and I are from the Boston area, so planning an international wedding was a challenge for us that we were excited for! With the help from Conrad, the process could not have been any easier. We emailed him back and forth questions about menu, logistics, and probably some admittedly silly questions that were just us being antsy. He responded right away to each and every one making us feel at ease and more and more excited every day.

We picked Powerscourt because my father had actually visited the Gardens about 10 or 15 years ago. He suggested it and we (off pictures alone) were more than thrilled. During the planning, Conrad himself graciously gave my father a tour of the grounds when he came out a year before our wedding. I was last minute unable to attend due to an illness, but Conrad and my dad facetimed me and gave me the full tour. He made sure all my questions were answered and I felt at ease, even though I was not there in person.

I was able to come out solo a few months later, and Conrad gave me ANOTHER tour - in person this time, showing me where the tables would be, where the cake would stand, the options for various other elements we wanted, what other brides had chosen to do with the space, etc. He is seriously amazing.

On the night rehearsal dinner (which I guess is common in the States, but not so much in Ireland - but of course he accommodated!!) Conrad was in attendance making sure everything was seamless. My husband, who had never seen the grounds in person, was blown away by it, and by the staff that was so helpful to us.

The wedding night, the staff and Conrad all checked in on us to make sure everything was as expected. They made me feel as though any request we had was not a problem. I had a bit of an upset stomach that night (nerves!!) and they came back to my table with ginger ale and Tums.

The food was of course delicious (ugh seriously - I still can taste it!), but the way that Conrad and his team went above and beyond for us seriously made me feel like a queen and that it really was "our day." I cannot thank Conrad and the team enough. I'm trying to make all of my friends get married there now and none are even engaged - I just want to go back so badly!!

THANK YOU Conrad and everyone that helped make our night and experience so amazingly special. I cannot recommend Feast highly enough.

An Easy Decision!
Married on 17th Sep 2016
Powerscourt Gardens is somewhere that I have been going since a young girl. I find it really peaceful and beautiful and always find myself feeling very happy when i'm there, whether it's Winter or Summer. The minute Ed went into the house he didn't want to look any further. So it was a really easy decision!

The entire day was really brilliant, but one of my favourite parts was enjoying the drinks reception in the sun outside. The views were possibly even more breathtaking that day! Conrad and all the caterers from FEAST were so attentive and professional.

I felt very lucky to be having a wedding reception is such a gorgeous place.

We're massive fans of Powerscourt. I took Ruby here on our second date as I wanted to show her the very best of Ireland. She had had some pretty bad experiences when she first arrived in the country and I wanted to show her that Ireland had a lot more to offer. She fell in love with Powerscourt immediately, and we've been coming here ever since! There was never really any question about where we wanted our wedding in Ireland to be!

We have to say a massive thanks to Conrad from Feast Catering for all of his hard work. The day went flawlessly, and that's all down to Conrad and his team! He was completely unflappable on the day and we were (and still are) completely in awe of him!

Brian and I met in work 6 years ago-you could say it was love at first sight!
Brian proposed on St.Stephen?s day in Powerscourt-we had a lovely lunch in the Sugarloaf lounge looking out to what was a horrible dreary wet day! After lunch, Brian insisted we go for a walk?I knew something was up because no one would want to go for a walk on a day like that! We borrowed some umbrellas from reception and walked over to the golf course which is overlooked by Powerscourt House. Brian got down on one knee and proposed in the rain in a deserted wet golf course!
When choosing a venue it was an obvious choice to go back to Powerscourt. I had seen the ballroom of Powerscourt House on the internet but never in the flesh. We were shown around the venue by Conrad and immediately fell in love; it was the first and only venue we viewed. With 2 large reception rooms to choose from and the ballroom, there are some many options. The d?cor is so beautiful; the architecture and interiors really speak for themselves so there is no real requirement to add anything! From start to finish, Conrad at Feast Catering and the hotel staff, in particular Siobhan and Carmel, were extremely helpful and accommodating for all of our questions and requests. We had a tasting with Conrad a few months prior to the wedding and it was truly divine, we knew we were in good hands.
Brian and I, and both of our families, stayed in the hotel the night prior to the wedding-my room was enormous and was an ideal setting for getting ready in the morning of! We had our ceremony in a local church and upon arrival at the house, due to the nice weather on the day, had our drinks reception in the gardens. Everything had been organized so seamlessly that there was nothing to worry about. We had our photos taken in the remarkable grounds; the pictures are incredible! My favourite part of the day was the dinner and the speeches. All of our guests remarked on the day about at the quality of the food and the beautiful venue and are still commenting about it! My advice for couples getting married is to try to not stress too much about it, plan as far in advance as possible and put your trust in the expertise of the staff!
We can?t recommend Powerscourt House as a wedding venue more, I feel honored that we were able to host our reception there!

Mark and I looked at many venues for our wedding but once we visited Powerscourt House, we knew this was the venue for us! It seemed fitting for us to get married at the Powerscourt House after we got engaged in Powerscourt.
On our wedding day we found the staff as a whole extremely professional, all the Powerscourt team were so helpful and lovely with us during the whole experience. We feel the Powerscourt venue is unique with one best gardens in the world, the food was absolutely amazing. We both had the most amazing day and on looking back there is not a single thing we would have changed. We had wedding guests from all over the world such as Brazil, Thailand, Dubai, London, Edinburgh and Ukraine and more and they all complimented us repeatedly on our wedding day on the amazing venue and the high standards of the meal and staff.

We wanted to say thank you so much for making our day so memorable and special.

From the moment we attended the wedding fair in Powerscourt House, we both knew that this was the most perfect venue for our wedding. We worked closely with the ever professional Conrad to design our wedding day to meet our needs and requirement. On the day, our guests were overwhelmed by the beautiful venue, the stunning scenery and the incredibly friendly/professional staff. Every part of the day flowed smoothly; the only problem was that it all went too fast! We would highly recommend Powerscourt and Feast to anyone who is seeking to have the ultimate dream wedding. You will not be left disappointed.

Unique & Magical
Married on 11th Dec 2015
?We always dreamed of having our wedding reception in Powerscourt House. Having travelled throughout the world, there are few gardens or estates that rival Powerscourt in beauty or romance. Our reception took place here at Christmas and everything about the day exceeded our expectations. The venue and grounds provided for a truly unique and magical wedding and our guests were as enchanted as we have always been. The warm and attentive service we received from the staff at Powerscourt House was also truly special.?

"While we may be ever so slightly biased, Powerscourt House & Gardens has got to be the best wedding and event venue in the country. The stunning gardens, beautiful rooms and wonderful hospitality made for an incredible day, one which will stay with us and our guests for many years to come.

It's hard to know where to start, but Conrad and his team went above and beyond to make sure the day went off without a hitch. They executed a very last-minute transfer of drinks reception to the gardens (Irish weather at its unpredictable best!) which we were extremely grateful for, as we really wanted to show off the beautiful Irish countryside to our international guests. Everyone was incredibly professional and a special shout-out must go to Neil who was so attentive knowing how people liked their drinks and even got involved in some of our photo fun! Service in the ballroom was fantastic and we received so many compliments about the simply delicious food. We particularly appreciated the deviation regarding the midnight snacks; we have a slight obsession with bacon butties!

In the run-up to the day, I?m sure Conrad was driven quite demented by our emails but nothing seemed too much trouble and he was a great support throughout the entire process. We really had a brilliant day and it is such a privilege to have been able to celebrate our wedding in Powerscourt. Thank you to everyone involved for helping to create such a memorable day!?

We could not have asked for more!
Married on 25th Jul 2015
We could not have asked for more, and everything was absolutely perfect! The house itself is just stunning, very light and spacious, beautifully renovated and has an absolutely incredible atmosphere. The view of the mountain and the gardens from the house is breathtaking and we were so excited for our guests (especially for those travelling from U.S.A., Russia, and United Kingdom) to enjoy it on the day. When the planning began for the big day, we knew we were in good hands, when Conrad offered us his support in everything we needed. He was always there for us to answer all the questions (and we had MANY questions), promptly responding to our emails and having numerous phone calls with us. The day before and on the day of the wedding itself, Conrad made sure everything is as perfect as it could possibly be. We are forever grateful for all the hard work that he has done. The team that worked with Conrad deserves a special shout out as well, all of them were very professional, friendly and attentive to us and our guests.

We have to separately mention the food and wines offered for the wedding, we LOVED every single dish we tasted during the food tasting, so deciding what we want on the wedding menu wasn't easy at all, however we finally agreed to go for salmon as a starter, guinea fowl and halibut as a main course, and poached pear as a dessert, we had no regrets. The food was prepared to perfection, served on time, and we received many many compliments from our guests who enjoyed their dinner very much.

As for many couple, our wedding was a very special and memorable day to us. But we are delighted that all our 110 guests enjoyed the day as much as we did. From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank every single member of Powerscourt House team who made our wedding the best of our lives!

Memorable from the moment we visited!
Married on 28th May 2015
We just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone at Powerscourt House for making our wedding day so memorable. From the moment we visited the venue we knew that this was the perfect place for our wedding and it lived up to all our expectations.

The downstairs room for our ceremony was cosy and intimate and having our reception outside in the gardens with ?that view? was just perfect, although the room upstairs was so nice that we knew our guests would be happy inside or out.

We had a lot of people travelling from the UK so it was important to us that they were wowed by the venue and beautiful Wicklow scenery, which they of course were! We received so many compliments about how beautiful the house and the gardens were. Not to mention having stunning photos as a result of the backdrop.

The staff at Feast also provided us with a perfectly smooth day and thought of everything we would need. The food was delicious and the wine flowed. Both the house staff and Feast helped us so much in the run up to the wedding and could not have been more helpful.

We and all our guests had such a great day and night we wish we could do it all again. We would not hesitate to recommend this venue to any couple planning their big day.

No other venue could compare!
Married on 22nd May 2015
Before viewing the venue at Powerscourt House we had looked at 3 other potential venues.
All of the other venues we had reviewed where ?ok?, they were very much ?standard? wedding venues, like every other wedding venue, providing a standard offering of a function room, within which the entire event (reception, meal and after party) would take place.
We felt as if choosing one of those venues would have been settling for something very ordinary .
This is where Powerscourt house is very different. . .

About 5 minutes into viewing Powerscourt house, we had decided that this is where we were having our wedding, it was an obvious decision based on everything the venue had to offer;
The multiple rooms to utilize, the rustic d?cor, the extent to which we could customise the venue, not to mention the absolutely stunning setting the location of the house offers.

After viewing Powerscourt house, we didn?t even bother looking at any other venue, we knew no other venue could come close.

Our decision was the correct one. . .
May 22nd 2015 was an amazing day that will live long in our memory and in the memories of all our guests. The venue is certainly a key contributor to those happy memories.
Where else can you sip Prosecco looking out at one of the top gardens in the world, and party the night away in a venue which is also a historic landmark of Ireland.
