Our wedding in Rathsallagh was absolutely amazing! Gillian, Julie, Stephen and the rest of the team were so helpful and could not do enough for us. From check in, the wait staff and reservations, were all fantastic and we had an absolutely amazing day from start to finish. The food was excellent and our guests kept commenting on how amazing all their rooms were. Would highly recommend.

We had an absolutely amazing day in Rathsallagh House and it would not have been possible without the help of the exceptional Catherine and Gillian as well as the rest of the fantastic staff. The attention that we received as bride and groom was incredible. All of our guests were full of praise for the venue itself as well as the food and wine. Lastly, the Granary, where our ceremony was held was just gorgeous. This was a truly magical day for us and Rathsallagh helped make it as special as it was. We could not recommend Rathsallagh highly enough.

We had such a great weekend, hard to put into words but simply everthing couldn't have went better for us, you were all such a great help, from allowing us to use the backdrop to the last bottle of whiskey into the early hours and everything else in between, it just was amazing, the food and level of service was exceptional. Special mention to Tomas who was great throughout, Julie who ensured Alana was well hidden on her early arrival, Lisa who was great to have some calming chats with in the lead up, Stephen who was a pleasure to deal with as always and massive shout out to George the night porter who had the tough job of getting the last few punters onto the last taxi, so nice of him to bring us out to check on Missy before bed. Everthing went to plan and everone raving about how much fun they had. I know we ran over time a bit on the ceremony but I think it was so nice for everyone to mingle and have a drink before, it got the day off to the perfect start! So a massive thank you for pushing things back a wee bit and send my regards to the chef and the rest of the team, I don't know how they manage to cook so much beef to order, but it just was so good and everyone was raving a about the food

The service and delivery at Rathsallgh was absolutely second to none. We were looked after right from the start, through the preparation and especially whilst we were there. We were organising the wedding from London and the team were always so helpful at providing contact details for suppliers. When we got to Rathsallagh we were treated like royalty with our every requirement seen to. The whole event was fantastic and we have had so many of our guests commenting on how amazing the food was, how attentive the staff were and how wonderful the setting/accommodation was. As the bride and groom, we were looked after especially well with lots of little touches throughout the day. We can't think of anything that could have made it better - they even managed to make the sun shine in February!

Our Rathsallagh wedding was magical. We were certain we'd enjoy our wedding but it surpassed our every dream. The staff were all so utterly thoughtful, considerate and polite to both us and every guest. We were treated like king and queen. The guests really appreciated how at home they felt and it created such a happy, relaxed ambiance the whole weekend. During the lead up to the wedding people would ask 'are you stressed?` And we'd reply no but its because of Rathsallagh. They said yes to every single request, big and small, and that was so appreciated by us. We are so grateful we had the good sense to choose Rathsallagh. When we met Catherine, one of 3 wedding planners who work together seemlessly, we were blown away, we knew we were in good hands and she made it clear she would ensure our day was perfect. Catherine is exceptional at her job. Stephen and Tomas who were with us through the wedding days were so pleasant, helpful and friendly. They would ensure any request was met. Rosie in reservations, dealt with hundreds of requests from me to hold a room, cancel a room, swap a room etc. She always got back to me with a solution like it was no big deal. It made it completely stress free. Our French crowd were blown away by everything - the location, the house, the wine, the food, the staff. And we all know the French think they've the best food and wine!! Both our families had such a wonderful time and it gave us the perfect opportunity to spend time with both families which is so rare for us. We are so, so grateful for everything. We will keep our special memories with us forever. A great start to our marriage.

From the get-go Catherine, one of their wedding planners was amazing. She totally turned our heads and hearts towards Rathsallagh as we thought we had our mind made up on somewhere else. The team went above and beyond for us throughout the lead up to our wedding, they were so helpful and open to suggestions and dedicated so much time to us. Totally putting us at ease and giving us full confidence in Rathsallagh and the team. The venue itself was a dream, so unique and full of character and it looked particularly stunning for our wedding at Christmas. It provided us the magical Christmas wedding we have always dreamt of. All of the staff were incredible from the first meeting, to the tasting and the day before and day of. The food was exceptional also throughout. Whether it was the wedding meal itself or the breakfast ham or welcome cookies...all our guests have been raving about the quality of the food. We have visited Rathsallagh in summer, autumn and winter and it really does lend itself to every season. We truly felt at home during every visit down and during the days we spent there for our wedding.

I cannot speak higher of rathsallagh as a wedding venue. Although they have so many weddings every week we were made feel like we were the first wedding they ever had. They made our day so special. They were so flexible and helpful. The food was incredible x we have so many wonderful memories from this venue and if we were to do it all over again I couldn't think of anywhere better. We got married at Christmas time. Our photographs on the grounds turned out beautifully with rathsallagh as the back drop! And don't forget the "tree". Thank u rathsallagh for the most perfect build up and day x

We got married in Rathsallagh in November and would not hesitate to recommend them to other couples. From the moment we viewed wedding venues, it was apparent that they had an attention to detail that no where else came close to. The place was in perfect condition on the day and we had a number of guests comment to us on the level of attention they received from staff on the day as well as on the quality of the food. We were very impressed with their ability to react on the day (e.g. putting food aside for guests whose car broke down, finding my handbag when I mislaid it). It was a great comfort to know that our guests were being well taken care of, while at the same time the setting and the homeliness of the place added a level of magic to our own experience. Thankyou to the team at Rathsallagh for their kindness and professionalism.

I think it is pretty clear from the many existing comments here and the ratings, that anyone who has had the joy of their wedding day at Rathsallagh House or even present as a guest, have come away more than pleased. The same certainly goes for Jo and I. If we could rate it more than 5 stars we certainly would. Rathsallagh House was one of many venues we viewed in the search for a place to host our wedding. We believed we would come back after viewing many venues and then decide. We had viewed a few places before Rathsallagh House, but when we did view it, we straight away new where we wanted our wedding day to be and booked in our date on the day of viewing. From day 1, we were made to feel so welcome, everyone telephone conversation the followed, we were made to feel so welcome. Rathsallagh conduct many wedding celebrations and ceremonies, yet we were made feel like ours was the only wedding that they had on, and I mean that in a way that, it was if all this effort was being put into ensuring we have such a magical day. But it is clear from all the other comments and ratings, that those same efforts were put into ensuring everyone else also had their magical day. We can take a lot away from our experience with those at Rathsallagh and Rathsallagh House itself. Many magical and happy memories were taken away with us on that day. And we know from the reactions of our guests the next day and days that followed, they felt the same. We look forward to creating more happy memories at Rathsallagh as Jo and I will be back again one day. We already miss it greatly! We would also like to take this opportunity to once again thank all those associated with Rathsallagh House, for everything they did in the build up to the day and the day itself. We would happily recommend Rathsallagh House, Ian & Jo

The staff make you feel like you are part of the family. Everyone felt so welcome. All our guests said the rooms were amazing and beds so comfy! The food has been discussed non stop. It was delicious! Rathsallagh is a beautiful venue to celebrate your wedding but it's the staff that make the day feel so personal and special. We will definitely be making a trip back to have the dinner and fabulous homemade jam!
Response from Rathsallagh House
Hi Emma and James. It is excellent that everyone was made to feel welcome, as well as our staff, the house itself has a warm welcoming feeling to it. Our rooms are individually designed, the only thing they would have in common is the excellent comfort! It’s a special day that should be thoroughly enjoyed so it is great to hear you did. Our head chef will be thrilled with your great compliments. Please do visit us again, we have special offers on our Rathsallagh website and would love for yourself and James to be able to return for them. From all here, we wish you a long life of happiness and precious memories shared together.

Rathsallagh was an absolute pleasure to work with and if we were to do our day all over again we would 100% absolutely pick Rathsallagh again. We couldn’t fault anything the food was amazing as we knew it would be, the service was absolutely superb and the venue is absolutely gorgeous. We got so many compliments on how good the wine was and we were told there was plenty being poured, Rathsallagh are so professional at running their weddings, they are so organised and makes the the day so relaxed for the bride and groom as you don’t have to worry about a thing. As a venue it’s just so cosy and relaxed we had an Autumn wedding and was a really cold day so the little rooms and open fires were so toasty and homely for our guests. Nothing was ever an issue for Rathsallagh wedding coordinators and staff, I had lots of my own wedding decor bits to be put out and everything was put out so nicely and professional looking. We really did have the most amazing wedding day and would highly recommend Rathsallagh to future wedding couples.

There are not enough words to describe how grateful we are for the incredible service we received during our wedding day. From the moment we first viewed Rathsallagh we knew it was the venue for us. All the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to create such a magical day for us. From the wedding team Catherine, Julie and Gillian who answered hundreds of emails from us and planned every single detail of our day perfectly. To the waiting staff at the tasting who were so friendly and offered us loads of advice and of course Joe who gave us a lovely welcome at the tasting and again on the big day. On the day itself everything went perfectly and this is thanks to the wonderful organisation skills of the team at Rathsallagh. The bar and waiting staff were extremely professional but super friendly creating a relaxed atmosphere which was so important to us. All our guests commented on how amazing the staff were. The food was superb and the chef catered to all the weird and wonderful dietary requirements some of which were a surprise on the day but this was no problem for Rathsallagh. The table settings were exactly what we had asked for and the team set it all up for us, we didn’t have to lift a finger. And if we weren’t already extremely impressed when we went to pack up all our stuff the next morning it had already been done. Everything was neatly packed away and waiting for us in reception. This was an unbelievably nice touch especially as you can imagine we were fairly tired the next morning! If there was any problems on the day we certainly didn't hear about them and that’s the sign of pure professionalism. We would like to say a special thank you to Julie. Julie showed us around Rathsallagh that first day and helped us with every single detail there after. Nothing was too big or too small she even remembered details about the wedding we had suggested that we had actually forgot about!! I was so glad to see her on the day as not only is she incredibly professional and organised she is so lovely and fun it was like having a friend looking after us for the day! We would also like to thank Stephen the duty manger. We had never met Stephen before the day but that didn’t matter he made us feel so comfortable straight away and we felt we were in great hands with him. Everything ran like clock work. Weddings are stressful and there is a lot going on but with Julie and Stephen we didn’t have to worry about a thing and for that we are so grateful. It wouldn’t have been the same without them. We woukd definitely recommend Rathsallagh to everybody and we look forward to returning ourselves soon! Thanks again for helping us with the best day of our lives! Claire and Rob 19/10/18
Response from Rathsallagh House
Dear Claire and Rob. Thank you so much for your lovely review. Catherine, Julie ,Gillian and Stephen are over the moon with the praise you gave them, as am I !. Abhi and his team in the kitchen are also thrilled, they pride themselves at being able to cook the meat to order ( rare , medium well etc ) no matter what the size of the wedding in addition to being able to come up with imaginative alternatives for various last minute dietary requirements. We so much enjoyed having you here with us for your big day. Please do come back and see us soon, we have some great little romantic breaks in the winter ( see our web site ) and the two of you can walk the grounds hand in hand an relive all those great memories. Thank you again for your review and we wish you both long life and happiness.

The staff at Rathsallagh were so genuinely warm, supportive, and attentive from our first inquiry to them, throughout every phone call and email during the planning process and into our big day. While planning from Boston, they made us feel like we were the only couple they were working with, which is a testament to their skill and immense experience. It was clear that they were invested in our wedding which is a rare thing to experience from such a successful, in-demand location! The venue itself is truly breathtaking in every way and transported us to a timeless world that set the stage for the day we will remember for the rest of our lives. Our guests were in awe of the decor, food, and hospitality. We could go on for days (and actually have) about our experience working with Catherine, Julie, Gillian, Maeve, Stephen and Joe (of course)! Thank you for taking such care with an event so precious to us. We cannot wait to visit soon.

We had our wedding in Rathsallagh House 12 October 2018,what can we say we were blown away - the staff in Rathsallagh could not have done enough for us, the food, the surroundings, atmosphere was exactly what we were looking for. All our guests had such wonderful comments, be it , the food, the individuality of their rooms,the grounds, the cozy and warm atmosphere. Everyone went above and beyond for us, always polite, efficient and professional nothing was too much of an ask. On the day we had Gillian as our wedding coordinator and she was just amazing to us all, the little touches and her kindness did not go unnoticed. Thank you for making our day as magically as we envisioned. Derek & Imelda
Response from Rathsallagh House
Hi Imelda and Derek. Although Rathsallagh is located only one hour away from Dublin, the atmosphere of our 260-acre surroundings do tend to blow you away as well as our homely Country House. Gillian and the team are so glad your guests had such wonderful comments. Please do visit us again (keep an eye on website for special offers) for another magical weekend. We wish you a long life of happiness together.

The only words I can use to describe Rathsallagh house as a wedding venue are ‘absolutely amazing’. The venue itself is beautiful and has a worldly charm and family feel. The grounds are beautiful and all the lights everywhere make it look magical at night. From the first time we spoke to Joe, we knew rathsallagh was the venue for us, everything was so personal and the staff really take an interest in your wedding. The wedding coordinators are amazing, attentive and very professional. Nothing was too much and all our requests were actioned, even down to the small details. The food was Michelin star standard, every course was fantastic and all our guests are still talking about how amazing the food and wine were. If you are looking for an exclusive venue that has that country style feel and want to be made feel like you are the only wedding they are dealing with, then rathsallagh is the venue for you. I can not recommend this venue enough, it made our wedding magical and will forever hold a special place in our hearts.

Hi Bronagh and Paul . Thank you so much for writing a review for us. Abhi and his team in the kitchen are blown away with your praise for the food, I will have to be careful now that he is being compared to Michelin star standard !. but joking aside he is pretty fabulous at what he does and his ability to cope with all those last minute dietary requirements is amazing, of course having our own full time catering team on site makes that job a bit easier. Please do come back and see us again soon , maybe in the new year when we have our past “Rathsallagh Wedding Couples” only nights. . We wish you both long life and happiness and thank you again for your super review.

Magical from start to finish. We had our wedding reception and second day here in Sep. 2018 and it was truly the best day of our lives. From the minute we viewed Rathsallagh and got our initial tour from Gillian we knew this place was the one for us. It gave us all the feels-homely, friendly, beautiful, professional, unique and perfect for us. We can’t say enough about all the people we dealt with throughout the planning. No question or request (especially last minute!) was any trouble and the professionalism, work ethic, genuine care and thoughtfulness of Gillian, Catherine and Julie put us at such ease. Thank you so much for all you did. Gillian was with us on the day and again she was brilliant, as were all the staff at our reception and over the weekend. It was great to have a familiar face that had looked after us so well all through the planning and then on the day as well. Stephen took over running the reception from Gillian later in the day, and was equally as kind and helpful as Gillian and all of the staff at Rathsallagh. He looked after us fantastically. Thank you to all the bar and serving staff, especially Charlie, the reception staff, room staff and Joe and Kay O’Flynn. In particular Kay and Charlie,and another young man whose name escapes us, were a great help when one of our relations took ill in the middle of the night, thank you so much. We obviously had great confidence and hopes that everything would go really well but on the day, and over the weekend, Rathsallagh massively exceeded our expectations. All our guests were blown away by how amazing and special the venue was. We got so many wonderful comments about the food (reception & second day bbq), the grounds, how nice the staff were and the beautiful bedrooms. We’re trying here, but really cannot put into words how grateful we are to Rathsallagh for everything they done over the course of planning the wedding, the day of the reception, and the day after as well. Thank you all again. I think you probably get it by now but this place REALLY IS MAGICAL!

Hi Aisling & Jody. Thank you for your superb review and recommendation of Rathsallagh. The team ae over the mon with the praise you have given them. Charlie, my Mum and George looked after your relative and we hope she is well recovered now. Having the BBQ on day two is a great idea and of course we use a local free-range pork supplier and then cook the entire pig over an open fire using charcoal and wood from our own sustainable plantations. We would love to see you back at Rathsallagh again so please do keep an eye out for our past “Rathsallagh Wedding Couples” only nights in the new year.

When we viewed Rathsallagh the first time we knew it was exactly the venue we wanted, the service and attention to detail from the staff could not be faulted. Also there food was highly rated and we wanted to ensure we had good food for the guests. We spent the night before at the venue also, the staff were so welcoming and helpful. Everything went perfect on the day and we cannot thank Joe and his staff enough for all their help. Our guest are still talking about the venue, its goregous food and the staff. I would 100% reccommend Rathsallagh for a wedding.

My husband & I can’t speak highly enough of the team at Rathsallagh. From beginning to end they were absolutley fantastic to deal with & gave us the wedding reception we always dreamed of. Not only did they look after us with 5 star quality but also every one of our guests, who all thoroughly enjoyed their day at Rathsallagh. From the food to the service to the grounds, we loved it all! To top it all off the team sent us all home happy and full after an amazing breakfast spread! We would love to do it all over again!

Amazing experience from the moment we set foot in the door to view the venue. We were absolutely not set on having our wedding there but as soon as we met the staff we fell in love with not just the setting put how at ease we felt. They could not have done more for us, and were so accommodating throughout the whole process - nothing was a problem. The day could not have gone better, and the organisation was amazing - everything and everyone were where they were supposed to be when they were supposed to be and every detail was perfect, we didn't have to lift a finger. The amazing service and experience carried on to our second day which just made the whole weekend all the more amazing from start to finish... wish we could do it all again!!! :)

Thank you so much Rathsallagh! We had such a fantastic day on our wedding. The venue and staff made it even more special than we could have believe. Gillian, our coordinator on the day, was superb - she was so attentive with many great suggestions throughout the day to help everything flow smoothly. The planning team helping us plan in advance couldn't have been more helpful, responding to any and all queries, and accommodating all requests! The staff on the day were meticulous and exact with our instructions on decorations & decor, making the venue into our own for an incredible celebration. They were so helpful throughout, ready with any help needed throughout the day. The food and catering was also fantastic - we really enjoyed every meal throughout the day, and so many of our guests have also commented on how impressed they were with the food. Rathsallagh's grounds were a very special place to have our wedding - the granary room is a beautiful ceremony room, and we felt very special holding our own ceremony there. The outdoor space was beautiful, giving us the option to be outside for photos and the drinks reception when the weather was good, and the lovely reception rooms then came into their own later on. The marquee itself is a wonderful space, lighting makes it look really special as night came in, and the dancefloor and bar kept everyone there til late. The accommodation is absolute luxury, all guests commented on how much they enjoyed their stay. We couldn't praise Rathsallagh any more highly, and have been recommending it to anyone and everyone who will listen. Thank you!

Hi Hugh and Caoimhe. Gillian, the wedding team and everyone here at Rathsallagh are so glad you had such a fantastic wedding day. It is amazing how décor can change a venue so much and your fire display was outstanding! The natural landscape & gardens that surround Rathsallagh are a beautiful backdrop for your photos! Thank you so much for taking time out to post such a brilliant recommondation. I would like to wish you both the very best wishes for your future together.

We were delighted with our wedding at Rathsallagh, it was absolutely wonderful! We found Catherine, Gillian, Julie & Rosie so easy to deal with and they were always so helpful. They are a credit to the place, so hardworking and helpful, they make you feel like your wedding is the only one! Catherine was brilliant on the day itself, everything ran like clockwork and we didn't have to worry about anything. She even managed to move the flower arch from the ceremony into the pavilion which was a lovely surprise! The room was set up so beautifully on the day, Steve, the duty manager in the evening was also really helpful and we were delighted with how quick the meals came out etc. We had such a wonderful day at Rathsallagh and we couldn't speak highly enough of it. So many of our guests commented on how lovely a venue it is and how much they enjoyed the food, accommodation and everything else. It is a beautiful, special place and we will always treasure the memories of our day there spent with our family and friends. Helen and Patrick Davis, wedding 7th September 2018

Hi Helen and Patrick. It is great to hear from you and thank you so much for your kind review. Catherine, Gillian Julie , Stephen, and Rose are thrilled that they got a mention. We just love hosing civil ceremonies on site, and with so may options here both indoor and out it can be very exciting. We were delighted that your ceremony went like clock work, your flower arch was superb so it was great that we could get value out of it and display in the wedding pavilion during the banquet. Please do come back and see us soon, we have some great little romantic breaks in the winter ( see our web site ) , Thank you again for your review and we wish you both the compliments of the season.

We can not thank Rathsallagh House enough for everything they did for us on the wedding day itself and the build up to it. At all times, they were there to support us with all the planning and organising. On the day itself, they were brilliant! The food was incredible, the room looked amazing, the staff were attentive and all our guests commented on how lovely the venue was including all their rooms. Julie, our wedding coordinator was outstanding. She was there with us on the day and helped us with timings and last minute preparation. Stephen, the duty manager was also excellent. He was constantly checking in to make sure we had everything we needed. All in all, we couldn't have been happier with how the whole day went, the staff at Rathsallagh and the venue itself. I would happily recommend it as a wedding venue. You would not be disappointed.

We were recently married and had our reception at Rathsallagh. We had the best day of our lives. We choose rathsallagh because it's such a charming and intimate venue. We met with Catherine and viewed the venue and she gave us such confidence and reassurance, we knew we were choosing the right location for us and our families. From start to finish, Catherine and her team were so professional and on the ball. They assisted us with every decision and were so helpful when it came to choosing food for the day! Stephen was in charge of service and we got to know him from our visits and tasting, he was truly professional and so accommodating! Rathsallagh was ours for a day and it was more than we could have dreamed of. We can't thank all the staff enough for helping us achieve a superb wedding day.

Hi Joan and Éanna, thank you so much for your lovely review. Stephen, Catherine and her team were more than thrilled to know that both you and Éanna’s families had a lovely day. We love shutting down our venue just for that one lucky couple as we too find it brings a great level of intimacy for your special day but as well as being a charming venue for weddings, we also do several guest packages such as our ‘TGI Friday’ (see special offers on our website). We hope you can come back to visit maybe to enjoy a romantic valentine’s day (or see website for availability) to relive the dreams that were made on your special day. The team and I are utterly delighted that we lived up to your expectations on the day and wish you the very best of wishes for the future, we will also look forward to hopefully seeing you again soon.

I cannot fault Rathsallagh one bit - a very down to earth team, building magical wedding days.

We cannot thank Rathsallagh enough for everything they did for us on the lead up to and on our wedding day itself. We turely had the most amazing day of our lives and the staff at rathsallagh were fantastic. All our guests had an amazing time and said that the staff were so helpful and attentive. Catherine in particular was superb and helped me in planning the big day and making sure everything ran smoothly on the day. Stephen took over in the evening and looked after us so well and made sure we didn't have to think about a single thing in the evening time so we could just relax and take it all in. Joe was present on the big day and the day after aswell which was so lovely. The staff at rathsallgh are like one big family and they help out and get involved in your wedding. It's truly amazing. I would highly recommend rathsallagh!! The grounds and bedrooms are stunning, the service and care is amazing and our guests are still raving about the food!!! They are a fantastic venue!! I am so glad that we chose rathsallgh as our venue. It really was the wedding of our dreams!! And that was all down to the venue and it's fantastic staff!! I cannot recommend them enough!!!

We got married at Rathsallagh House in August of 2018, and honestly, we could not have asked for a better experience. First and foremost, the house and the grounds are amazing. Our wedding day itself was wet and drizzly, and even in those conditions, it was breathtaking. The grounds are immaculate and the house is the most comfortable and homely venue we have ever been to. We knew the second we drove up to the house and walked around the estate that this was the only venue we wanted to be married at - and we saw a fair few! While the grounds themselves are amazing, the entire team at Rathsallagh is responsible for making the place what it is. The wedding team at Rathsallagh are second to none, and could not have done more in the months and weeks leading up to the big day. They made what is a stressful process as easy as it possibly could have been. We would like to give a special thanks to Gillian, Stephen, George, and all the other staff, who contributed to making our wedding day as wonderful as it was. Rathsallagh House has a fantastic reputation for a reason – the people are some of the best in the business and the venue is one of the best in the country. We would highly recommend Rathsallagh to any couple looking for a beautiful and unique venue with high-quality service.
Response from Rathsallagh House
Hi Amy and Alan. Its fabulous to hear that even though the weather conditions were not permitting on your special day yourself and Alan still found Rathsallagh breath-taking. The team will be more than thrilled to hear you found both the build up and the day itself stress-free and I will make sure to pass on your special thanks to Gillian, Stephen and George. Please do keep an eye our website as we would be more delighted to have you visit our venue again for our upcoming special offers/packages. The staff at Rathsallagh wish you both a long life of happiness together and want to thank you again for your fantastic review.

We loved every minute of our wedding with Rathsallagh! Our guests were blown away with the accommodation, service and grounds of the hotel. Everyone commented on the great service and we would like to especially thank Gillian for her support and enabling us to get married outside even though it had rained all morning, it really made our day! Would also like to call out Stephen for his service and attention to detail on the night. Nothing was too much trouble, they even got crisps from staff vending machine for the kids! Also the patient and attentive barman, George for facilitating the after party! Wish we could do it all again!
Response from Rathsallagh House
Hi Ursula and Kieran. Thank you so much for your great review. It is great to hear that you enjoyed your special day. Although we can facilitate both weddings inside and outside on our grounds, we can never rely fully on our typical Irish weather, but the team do an excellent job at complying with it to make sure we can live up to your expectations. Gillian and Stephen are very pleased that they played a part in making your day what it was, as George is too! Although you might not be able to do it all again you could come back to visit us for one of our special offer packages (see website for details) and relive some of your fantastic memories. We wish you the very best of wishes for your future together.

We would highly recommend Rathsallagh to have your wedding day. The hotel made us feel so welcome and truly made our day so special. The staff where very professional and Katherine went to the end of the world to make sure we got what we wanted for our big day.

We had our wedding day in Rathsallagh in July. I couldn’t praise them enough! So helpful via email in the run up to the day, Gillian made us feel like we were the only wedding at Rathsallagh that Year! She had so much time for us and was so lovely. On the day everything was absolutely fantastic! Even the younger members of staff - big shout out to Dylan! All our guests were so impressed with being greeted by the team as they came in and given the keys to their rooms. Food was fabulous - even nicer than at our tasting! The prosecco and wine flowed all day and the party went on into the small hours as promised! We loved Rathsallagh as a venue right from the very first viewing, but we were blown away by the warmth and professionalism of the service on the day! Pros at what they do! Couldn’t recommend enough!
Response from Rathsallagh House
Hi Michelle and Frank. It is fantastic that you enjoyed yourself on your special day. Gillian is thrilled with your high praise as too Dylan will be with your great remembrance of him. Abhi and his team in the kitchen are delighted with your fabulous food comments as they do always ensure to have your menu live up to your expectations. We’d hope you would revisit us and enjoy fabulous food once again with one of our special packages with dinner included (see website) We wish you a long life of happiness together and hope to see you again in the future.

We recently had our wedding reception in Rathsallagh house and I can honestly say it was completely perfect. It was the only wedding venue we viewed and we knew from our first visit that it was where we wanted to get married. We found the staff so helpful and accommodating, responding to any queries we had quickly. We live in Belfast and so did most of our planning via phone and email, and all of the wedding planners were easily accessible whenever we needed them. However, whenever we did go down we were always struck by the staff as a whole, on occasion a receptionist showed us around and into different bedrooms, on another visit a member of the house keeping staff and on a third one of the wait staff. I'm sure it is not in their job description to do tours of the grounds but they all obliged so willingly. On more than one occasion my husband emailed the owner after a visit to commend the excellent service we received from the staff. As most of our guests travelled from co Antrim and co Tyrone the night before the wedding we decided to have a buffet meal to begin our celebrations. We had not thought much about This, putting the majority of our planning into the actual wedding day but the night before ended up being a brilliant night. Our guests were so impressed with the quality of the food and felt the term 'buffet' failed to do it justice. It was a three course meal and a great opportunity to get all our guests mingling. There also was a world cup match on that my husband wanted to be shown and this was accommodated without problem- the people watching the football were able to carry their meal into the bar without any fuss. Mary, who was overseeing the event, was beyond helpful and made sure everything ran like clockwork. On the day itself myself and my husband both got ready on the premises in two separate buildings. I can speak for both of us when I say we were made feel like the only bride and groom who have ever gotten married there. I had food carried up to my room, my hairdresser and make up artist were so well looked after and the staff kept checking to make sure I didn't need anything else. When we came back after the ceremony we were greeted by Gillian, one of the wedding co ordinators, with champagne. She then asked would I like her to go and get my lipstick from my room to touch it up before our photos and she went and got it and then we went into the restrooms and she applied it for me and helped fix my veil - such a lovely gesture that was so greatly appreciated! That is just one example of one of the little things that were provided by rathsallagh that helped our day go perfectly. During the meal Stephen, another manager, discretely lifted my veil and put it in the bridal suite. When our day was over and we went up to our room there was a selection of our buffet food, some of our cake and some sandwiches, and a bottle of champagne, for us to relive our day. It was so appreciated! Since our wedding we have heard nothing but fantastic reports from our guests, and it makes us both so proud and happy that we chose rathsallagh. I feel it was a really unique location, the grounds,the rooms, the reception area etc are all so beautiful and I can't imagine another venue being as perfect. Moreover, the morning after our wedding, we were in no way made feel like there was another wedding that day. There was no rush to get us off the premises and I so appreciated That, as it still made us feel special as the bride and groom for a while longer. I hope this review has been helpful, I honestly can't enthuse enough about the venue, the staff and our whole experience.
Response from Rathsallagh House
Hi Helen and Stephen. Firstly, the staff at Rathsallagh House would like to thank you immensely for your fantastic review. Each and every member of staff here knows Rathsallagh House down to a tee and are more than happy to give a couple like yourselves a tour of our venue. Although you were staying within the same grounds, it was great to see the sense of astonishment that was met on your wedding day when having gotten ready in different buildings previous to your ceremony. Mary, Gillian and Stephen were more than happy to ensure you had the perfect day and are thrilled to know that they were highly appreciated. We would love to see you take another trip down from Belfast to us again and maybe relive your special day with some of our fantastic packages such as our Friday night getaway (please see website for more details). From all the staff at Rathsallagh we would like to thank you again for your more than helpful review and wish you as Mr. and Mrs. Gray a lifelong marriage of happiness together. We will look forward to hopefully seeing you again in the future.

Thank you to everyone a Rathsallagh for making our wedding such a special day.  From the moment we met Catherine in June 2016 to view the venue until the moment we left yesterday, we have had great experiences all along the journey.  Although the house and grounds are beautiful and the food superb, it is the people who made our wedding a truly memorable occasion for us and our family and friends. I would recommend Rathsallagh House to anyone who wants to ensure their wedding day is the besr it can be.

Catherine and the wedding team were just outstanding both on the day and in the months and weeks leading up to our wedding. From the first time, we met Joe O'Flynn when we went to view Rathsallagh Country House as a potential wedding venue, we just knew it was the place for us and it honestly couldn't have been better. The grounds, the house, the staff, the food all incredible. I would like to give a massive shout out to Catherine and Stephen who helped us throughout the day to ensure that everything was running smoothly they were amazing. Both Gareth and I and all our guests have given such amazing compliments to the venue and the entire Rathsallagh team. Thank you for making our wedding day an absolutely magical and dream day. Put simply everything was perfect! Mary & Gareth

We cannot recommend Rathsallagh enough. We had the most amazing wedding day and the run up to the wedding was made so smooth knowing that Rathsallagh had everything in hand. Nothing was too much hassle and the quality of the food was superb. We only wish we could do it all again.

Hi Laura and Robert. Thank you so much for your great recommendation.

We really couldn't thank Rathsallagh House and all the staff enough for everything they helped us with and delivered in the lead up to and on the day of our wedding. We were absolutely delighted with how everything turned out on the day and all of our guests commented on the venue, reception, food, accommodation and friendly and helpful nature of all of the staff. From the first visit we knew it was where we wanted to get married and we loved every second of our day there. A really beautiful setting and we were lucky enough that the weather obliged for our dream outdoor ceremony and reception.

We could not rate Rathsallagh highly enough for making our wedding the most special day. They had thought of every little detail and the day ran like clockwork, we didn’t need to stress over any details whatsosever. Myself and Paul had so much fun, we were so relaxed and really got to enjoy the day with all our friends and families. If I didn’t know better I’d say they arranged the weather too! The resounding feedback from all of our guests was what an amazing venue and how wonderful and welcoming every member of staff was. The place really felt like home for our special day. The wedding team were so responsive and kept us organised in the months leading up to the wedding. They were so professional and helpful, their experience really helped make the whole experience so easy. The staff throughout the day were on hand to cater for every guest, even catering for the coeliac, no onion vegetarians on the day with the evening sandwiches! ( that was a real test!) The food was out of this world, people are still raving about the dinner and the breakfast too, everything was delicious. The assistance with catering for various menus, family rooms, lodges was all done so easily and ourselves and our guest were blown away with the rooms and the hospitality. our photographs of the beautiful gardens in full bloom are like something from a magazine! We will treasure so many happy memories and can’t thank Rathsallagh and all the staff enough.

Hi Nicola and Paul. Thank you so much for your great review. Every little detail is taken in by our wedding team and shared with staff. Aren’t you blessed that you had gotten married on the few glorious days that Ireland has throughout the year! Although we cannot control the weather, we can work with it either inside or outside our beautiful Rathsallagh House and gardens. Our staff work brilliantly with the kitchen to make sure every need is catered for whether coeliac or vegetarian, our head chef Abhi will be thrilled to hear your great comments. We do hope you can come back to Rathsallagh hopefully to make even more memories to later treasure (keep an eye on website for upcoming special offers). We wish you and Paul a long life of happiness.

We got married in Rathsallagh in May and can't recommend it highly enough. Our families and guests were all raving about the venue- the delicious food, the beautiful rooms and the stunning grounds. The permanent marquee was lovely and comfortable and it was great to have the dance floor, bar (which was well staffed) and bathrooms all in one place. The service was excellent both before and during the wedding and we’d particularly like to thank Catherine and Stephen who made the weekend really special for us and couldn’t have been more helpful.

We had our wedding in May 2018 and because of the team at Rathsallagh it was a dream come true! We could not have picked a better venue, it was absolutely beautiful! Everything was perfect from the food to the service, the whole team went up and beyond their job. Our guest had an absolutely ball, they all loved the large bedrooms and had such fun going from room to room looking at them all. We did two nights and wish we had done three. Stop looking at other venues and have your wedding at Rathsallagh!

Hi Melanie and Gavin. We are delighted that we lived up to your expectations and that your guests enjoyed themselves too!

Rathsallagh House is an exceptionally beautiful venue which offers both extremely high standards alongside a very relaxed calm atmosphere. The staff are truly professional and cannot do enough for everyone. We can't speak highly enough for such fantastic service from all which ranged from our initial viewing through to the guests departing from what can only be described as the best day of our lifes. Thanks again for all of your efforts and very warm welcome, our guests and families are still talking about it. Ps. the food was also absolutely amazing!

We choose to have our wedding in Rathsallagh House back in May 2016. From the first visit we were welcomed with sincere warmth, meeting the owner Joe and having him show us around this beautiful venue made our choice very easy. From that point onward every member of the wedding co-ordination team and indeed every employee was so professional and warm to us. As we stated in our speech on our wedding day, "Each Employee is an important cog in a well-oiled machine". We cannot recommend highly enough this venue for your wedding. Our wedding day was amazing and one we will never forget and a big part of that is because of the Management and Staff in Rathsallagh House. From our guests driving up the beautiful avenue to be greeted personally right through to the checkout the following morning they wanted for nothing. Attention to detail was amazing, from the beautiful food served all day to the wonderful breakfast the next morning we cannot fault it and the feedback from our guests confirmed all this. Once again we would sincerely like to thanks Joe and his amazing team for a truly magical day. Dave & Tom

We had our wedding in Rathsallagh in May 2018! It was the first venue that we viewed following our engagement and after viewing only one more venue, we knew Rathsallagh was for us. The wedding coordinators were extremely professional and so helpful on the lead up to the wedding and on the wedding day. They always responded very speedily and with useful answers to any question that we had. We honestly had the best day at our wedding! It was such a sunny day and the grounds are stunning so our guests got to really enjoy the venue as we had our drinks reception half inside/half outside. Rathsallagh set up games outside for us which was a lovely touch as we had a number of children at our wedding, including our own toddler! Also, it was very handy for us as we could organise babysitters through Rathsallagh at a reasonable price! The food was delicious for every course and the Pavilion was a perfect setting for our wedding as you could look out on to the grounds while having dinner. The staff were very attentive and made sure that the wine was flowing throughout the meal too! The accommodation was lovely and nearly every room is different so it didn’t seem like a typical hotel vibe which was what we were looking for. I can’t recommend this venue enough! While we had an absolutely fantastic day, it was so nice for us to hear what a great day our guests had as well. A couple even said it was the best wedding venue that they’d ever been to!
Response from Rathsallagh House
Hi Niamh and Barry. Our grounds are spectacular year round but on a sunny day they are absolutely breath-taking for your wedding. As well as the bride and groom the guests mean a lot to us too so it is great to see that the children had a good time and were kept occupied outside. Our head chef Abhi is thrilled to hear the food compliments. We take great pride in our individually designed rooms as each one is unique to both the quests and us. From all here at Rathsallagh we would like to thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review and would also like to send you both the very best of wishes for your future together.

If you are considering Rathsallagh as a wedding venue, do yourself a favour and book it! Rathsallagh was the first and only wedding venue we visited. After that first visit with Julie, we knew we had to look no further. Rathsallagh has everthing you could wish for - delicious food, gorgeous grounds for photos, country charm, beautiful guest bedrooms, outstanding service from all of the staff (you will be looked after so well) and a perfect function room! There was nothing that the excellent wedding coordinators wouldnt do for us and they were brilliant for keeping in contact, giving us guidance and helping us with the entire planning process. I cannot wait to visit Rathsallagh again as a guest. The minute you step inside, you feel at home. Thank you so much Rathsallagh for giving us the perfect wedding day!

We had our wedding in Rathsallagh House on the 21st of April 2018 with 110 guests. The service and professionalism was second to none. I can not recommend Rathsallagh House highly enough. All our guests commented on the excellent service from the moment they arrived in the car park. Guests also were highly complimentary of the food. The wedding co-ordinators are extremely proficient and always replied to every email no matter how trivial. The venue exudes opulence and understated elegance. The attention to detail is first class. I would definitely recommend Rathsallagh House for any wedding big or small.

We got married in Rathsallagh House in April 2018 and had an amazing experience overall! Rathsallagh was a fantastic venue, all guests were greeted warmly following the beautiful drive up to the house. The grounds are a beautiful setting for photos. We loved every minute of the wedding day, as did our guests. They have all been raving about the place! Food and drinks were 10/10 as was the service. Most of all we both felt that the team in Rathsallagh, in particular the wedding coordinators, made the whole process of organising a wedding in less than 6 months very easy and stress-free. Their experience and expertise was very obvious from the start. Any questions were answered quickly, and all aspects of planning were handled so efficiently. We are really grateful to Rathsallagh House for being part of our big day, and for giving us such great memories :)
Response from Rathsallagh House
Hi Eimear and Ray. I have to point out that the drive up to the house, glazing out at the beautiful surroundings is so fabulous year round. It is hugely important that both the couple and guests enjoy themselves as it is great to be able to look back on your special day and share your memories together and it is always amazing to be able to say your wedding was so stress-free. All staff here including the wedding coordinators are thrilled that everything went to plan for you both. Thank you so much for your brilliant review and please keep an eye on our Rathsallagh website for our special offer packages. From all of us here, we wish you a long life of happiness together.

I was a guest at a wedding on 31/03/2018. It is probably one of the the best venues in Ireland for a wedding - from the ceremony to the reception and everything in between. The staff are just a pleasure to deal with, so unbelievably professional, helpful and attentive with a great sense of humor!! The meal was just beautiful - all the guests I spoke to remarked on it. The breakfast next morning was top class, so fresh and beautifully presented, just anything you wanted.. Accommodation was fabulous, beautifully decorated and warm. We got the best nights sleep which was welcome after a long day. The wedding party were thrilled with Rathsallagh House. The owners, the O’Flynn family made us feel so welcome and we really look forward to going back again soon.. Highly recommended for any event especially weddings..

Hi Bette. We are so glad to hear you enjoyed Valerie and John’s special day. I am certain my staff will be just as delighted as the wedding coordinators here were when they heard such great reports from yourself as a guest. Although it is always lovely to hear reviews back from our past brides and grooms, it is very important for us to hear reviews from a guests point of view too. We don’t just do weddings though, we have many special offer packages for a night away (keep an eye on websites) if you want to ever come back to us to unwind and relax, please feel free to do so! From everyone here at Rathsallagh, we would like to thank you for taking the time out to write such a fantastic review!

Where to begin...we can't thank the staff working at Rathsallagh enough...they were so incredibly helpful both on the day itself as well as the lead up. Julie was brilliant and so friendly. Both Paraic and myself thoroughly enjoyed the day/night. We had many guests tell us that it was the best wedding that they had been to and that the lamb was "to die for". We are not exaggerating when we say that everything about their service exceeded our expectations (including the weather!!). We never dreamed of having a white wedding! GIllian was there with us on the day and she was outstanding. She got us out of a very tricky situation; she was quick on her feet yet calm and composed. She kept Paraic calm, the bridesmaids warm and I just loved her - she was very reassuring. We were the first couple to get married in the granary and it was just perfect on the day; the lighting, the flowers, the seating everything was perfect. The canapes were delicious....our meal tasted as nice as it did a few months back when we were invited to do our food tasting. It also meant so much to us when Joe said to us that we should feel at home and to "party hard". I could go on and on and on. Thank you Rathsallagh, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for helping to make our day so truly special. We're still smiling :)
Response from Rathsallagh House
Hi Kate and Paraic. I would firstly like to give my apologies in the late reply. The staff at Rathsallagh are thrilled with your amazing review. Isn’t it just fabulous to be able to say you had a white wedding! We are so glad you have such high compliments of everything here and we would love for you to visit us once again maybe for one of our special offers (see our website for more details). From everyone here at Rathsallagh we hope you both are enjoying the married life so far and the very best of wishes for the future together.

Where to start!!! From the moment we first visited Rathsallagh when looking for wedding venues we knew it was the one for us. The grounds were breathtaking and the team so very welcoming. We knew that Jo, Catherine and the team would be able to make our wedding wishes come true. We were lucky enough to stay at Rathsallagh over three nights. This also meant a lot of planning and communication with the team. Everyone was so responsive to our multiple questions and requests making all three days go so smoothly. Our family and friends loved every second of the weekend. How could you not with the sweeping country grounds, amazing food and wonderful accommodation. The wedding day itself was perfect. The team did everything that they could and anticipated every next step. We couldn't have imagined a better wedding and would highly highly recommend Rathsallagh House.

An absolutely stunning venue with the most unbelievably helpful staff. We were never going to have our reception anywhere else from the moment we first went to view Rathsallagh House.

Such a high rating may seem daft but to be honest we could not fault Rathsallagh House in any way. The Wedding Team, headed up by Catherine, are exceptional. They are calm and understated but their attention to detail is incredible - they just got us from the start! We had in excess of 150 guests and the feedback from them has been amazing. Apart from compliments on ambiance, food and service - they all raved about their accommodation and breakfast the following morning. We had our Ceremony in the wood paneled room and afterwards dinner, dancing and drinks in the Pavilion. The entire day just flowed beautifully. We are so pleased that we had our special day at Rathsallagh and thank you to Catherine and her Team for such great memories.
Response from Rathsallagh House
Hi Geraldine and John. It is fantastic to hear that you could not fault us! The homeliness and feel to a ceremony in the wood panelled room is always incredible. It is brilliant that you can cherish memories of your special day with your guests. I would like to thank you for your lovely review and give my apologies in the late reply. I hope you are enjoying your married life so far and would like to wish you a long life of happiness together.

Joe and all the staff at Rathsallagh House are excellent. They ensured that all our wedding guests felt welcomed and catered for individuals' dietrary requirements. Their attention to detail made our wedding day run smoothly and our guests commented on how excellent the service and food was. If you are considering Rathsallagh for a wedding venue we would highly recommend it. They are very flexibly and willingly catered for all our requests. They went the extra mile for us.

Rathsallagh could not have been a better venue for our wedding. Having viewed up to 10 separate venues of a similar style, Rathsallagh stuck in our minds for a number of reasons. The venue is fabulous, not too far from Dublin, and evokes a relaxed and intimate vibe. Open fires, homely decor and gorgeous rooms helped create a lovely atmosphere. The wedding team handled our queries quickly and always made themselves available to help. We never felt pressured into anything, and the team offered many suggestions based on their vast wedding experience. We received so many positive comments from wedding guests after the wedding; from the quality of the rooms to the amazing food and the picturesque grounds around the house. All of this helped create a memorable wedding day for us and we would highly recommend Rathsallagh for any couple on the search for a venue.

No wonder they have won so many awards as they deserve it so much Don’t think there are words to convey exactly how amazing Rathsallagh is as a wedding venue - all I still keep hearing from our guests was what an amazing wedding and venue it was. My background is Event Management and I’ve been in and out of nearly every hotel in Ireland and knew what I wanted for my day after organising 1000 ‘s of events for work ! From the day we met Joe it was all about us and what we wanted for our day and they did not disappoint - we booked immediately . Catherine / Gillian & Julie are amazing to deal with and they are such professionals at this you don’t have to think of a think as they have everything sorted for you. The location / the setting /the staff / the rooms / the food / absolutely everything is 5 star plus service. The biggest thing with Rathsallagh is they do this all the time and they do it well - one of the biggest things to ensure no stress or worry for a bride as they have it all under control and run everything like clockwork - even down to small things like I had table settings / display for the room and I had not even seen the room till I walked in as a bride and everything was perfect. The day went so fast I wish I could go back and do it all again as we had such a fantastic day and that is thanks to Joe Catherine and their amazing team

We couldn't recommend Rathsallagh House and the team any more! Right from the beginning when we met Joe at a viewing we were made to feel so welcome, and it didn't take us long to lock in the date. We had the challenge of organising our wedding from Japan where we were living the year before the wedding. However, Joe and his amazing team of Gillian, Catherine and Julie were so helpful and provided all the support we needed, as well as helping us to chose our vendors including the lovely celebrant Mary and Orla the harpist/ singer. The team were so honest in helping us decide what extras we needed, and never once tried to over sell. We used the Orangery for our ceremony, and it was just perfect and didn't really need much done to it. The day itself was magical, in the first week of December when the venue was decorated for Christmas. All our guests said Rathsallagh House and the grounds were like a fairytale setting, and the food was honestly the best they ever had at a wedding. The beef is sensational, and cooked to order for over 100 guests. All the staff will go the extra mile for you, and we don't have any complaints apart from that the day went too quickly. The accommodation is top notch too, and all our guests staying loved it. In summary if you're looking for a great looking venue with atmosphere, sensational food, and faultless service then Rathsallagh is for you!

We had our wedding in Reception in Rathsallagh in October 2017. Everything was just perfect. The rooms, the meal, the service, the way the room was set up with our few little 'bits and props'. We particularly loved when we were brought to our room after the drinks reception for a breather.. it was much needed and we wouldn't have gotten the opportunity if you hadn't suggested it. Padraig was particularly grateful for the Jameson and coke provided at his dinner place before the speeches!! :) It was so lovely to hear so many glowing stories from our guests of the amazing individual service they received. Every story we heard, every single guest was made to feel special and we really appreciate that. One of our guests was a chef in a restaurant in Jersey who are currently working towards their Michelin star. He was hugely impressed with his rare beef. He even conceded that his restaurant could not pull off beef cooked to that standard with such a large crowd. So serious compliments to the chef. The meal overall was excellent and everyone seemed very happy. Could go on and on but just wanted to say a huge thank you. We couldn't recommend Rathsallagh more to any newly engaged couple!

We absolutely loved Rathsallagh and would highly recommend them as a Wedding venue! The venue itself is absolutely beautiful and there is lots of variety7 for photos! The food was amazing and we cannot thank the staff enough for their incredible efforts! All of our guests commended the staff and the manager looking after us, Stephen, only needed a moment of our time on the day to make sure everything was set up as we wanted it! We had no concerns on the day whatsoever as everything was taken care of!

Where do I start!? I can not begin to express my thanks to the team at Rathsallagh House for such an amazing wedding day last month - just WOW. From the moment I arrived at Rathsallagh I knew it was my venue. We met with Julie for our initial show around and it was a pleasure working with her right through to our wedding day. We were looked after extremely well. Everything on the day was perfect - the arrivals reception and pavilion were beautifully decorated - there are so many beautiful photo opportunities both inside and outside (the big tree is amazing!), the food was out of this world - both the wedding meal and the breakfast the next morning, stunning bedrooms. The staff went above and beyond on the day for us and all of our guests. We have received such wonderful feedback from everybody. I have to mention Stephen in particular - he was absolutely fantastic on the day. Our day was so relaxed from start to finish - a truly magical day. Huge thanks to Joe, Julie, Stephen, Catherine, Gillian & all the team at Rathsallagh. I can't wait to visit again soon.

The staff at Rathsallagh were exceptional. I couldn't fault anything about the day as it went so smoothly, all thanks to Stephen the duty manager and Julie and Catherine the wedding coordinators. It was a picture perfect day with some of the leaves having turned amber in the early autumn month, the country house was just stunning ! Our guests are still raving about the food, service, the amazing bedrooms (some who claim could fit their cars in, as their rooms were so big!! ) and the function room which was decorated so beautifully, especially the flower arrangements that came from the walled gardens. We couldn't have picked a better venue...thanks to all the team at Rathsallagh!

The entire team made us feel like we were the only couple to ever get married!

We couldn't have asked for a whole lot more from Rathsallagh, the staff are super friendly and helpful. We wanted a laid back day so that we could enjoy the occasion and we got a day that was completely stress free for us and our guests. The meal was excellent and not one guest had a negative thing to say about any aspect of the service, food or venue. Highly recommend Rathsallagh to anyone it is a unique venue with great character and charm , the staff are very knowledgeable and efficient. I found them to be willing to bend over backwards to help with all manner of questions and issues that pop up in the run up to the big day.

We recently got married In Rathsallagh and from start to finish the whole experience was out of this world. From when we met with the co-coordinators to the day after the wedding, every one could not do enough for us. The service we received was extremely personal and friendly. There was never a question or request that was too big or not possible- they tried to accommodate every little detail that we requested. I really could not rate this venue high enough, 5 stars does not come close to doing it justice!

Wow where to start. Rathsallagh is such a special place and my husband and I couldn't be happier with our choice. We were organizing the wedding from Canada so didn't get to see the grounds until a few days before the wedding! Even so from the pictures and the communication with Joe, Gillian, Catherine and the team we knew it was going to be perfect. The girls were so helpful with all the back and forth e-mails leading up to the day, nothing was a bother. Words could not describe how I felt pulling up to Rathsallagh in person and walking around the grounds for the first time, it was beyond my imagination. We had made it a 2 day celebration and most of us stayed for 3 nights. All the rooms were stunning and we managed to get a gorgeous day so were able to have the ceremony in the outdoor gardens along with the reception which was a dream!! The walled gardens were also perfect for our first look with our photographers! From the moment we were on site the staff took such good care of us. They all went above and beyond and all of our guests took notice. The food was delicious, 5 star on both the wedding and the BBQ and the breakfasts were also delicious with so many options! Special thanks to Gillian and Stephen for taking such good care of us, they were brilliant. All our guests are still raving about the best wedding ever! Thanks Rathsallagh!!! We will be back for sure!

Dear Chelsie and Brian . Thank you so much posting such a great review. It was such a pleasure hosting your wedding here, particularly considering Brian’s family connection to the Golf Club at Rathsallagh going back many years. I remember that day when we first did the show around via Face Time , I knew you liked the place then but was so thrilled to see your reaction when you first set eyes on Rathsallagh for real. Having Rathsallagh all to yourself and your guests for 3 days was really special and we were lucky that the weather was kind so that you could make use of our 18th Century Walled Garden for your ceremony . Thank you so much for your fantastic praise for the team here also, they are over the moon that you have acknowledged them particularly the wedding coordinator team, as you know they have super experience in assisting weddings that are coming in from overseas and it really shows. If you are home for Christmas please do drop down to say hello, for now we wish you both long life and happiness and thank you again for a great review. From all at Rathsallagh House

We would just like to say what an amazing time we had at our Wedding last Saturday (29.07.17). It was a brilliant time and all our family and friends are still raving about it. We had guests over from US, UK and all over Ireland, that said it was the best Wedding they had ever been to! It was such an intimate setting with stunning grounds for photographs. The staff are absolutely amazing and couldn't do enough for us. A number of guests commented on their professional approach and friendly manner. We cannot wait to get back to Rathsallagh House soon again and would have no hesitation recommending them to any couple.

Pending review The most magical day- our wedding at Rathsallagh July 2017 We had our wedding reception in Rathsallagh in July 2017. The whole day was perfect from beginning to end. The reception started at 3.30 and finished at 6am! With 18 months of planning Catherine, Gillian and Julie could not do enough for us. We planned our wedding from New Zealand and the communication was just excellent. We had many beautiful venues to choose from and are 100% happy that we chose Rathsallagh. The grounds are spectacular in the summer and the drinks reception can be held in the walled garden or the front garden looking out on the grounds- both locations equally as nice. The wedding coordinators and staff here are excellent and the O'Flynn family should be very proud of what they have achieved. The guest rooms are very spacious, well decorated, comfortable and luxurious.The only downside (and our guests all agreed) was that we had to leave the next day!! Having said that, we had an impromptu music session after breakfast and guests were still hanging around well after 1pm and at no stage did staff approach us to leave the grounds- nicely done. There was a great sense of personal touch throughout the day- Kay O' Flynn, one of the owners, even walked with my husband and I from the gardens to the Pavilion offering her congratulations and checking if there was anything more they could do for us on the day, while she carried the train of my dress. Good food was top of our list of priorities and after a mammoth tasting session in January we were so pleased with the food on the day N.B the pork belly starter is TO DIE FOR and our guests were all begging for more. Cooking for 120 people can't be easy but each dish was beautifully presented and the meals all delicious. Many of the venues we viewed had a sense of conveyer-belt-weddings about them and it was truly off putting- Rathsallagh really sets itself apart in this way. It is obvious that the O'Flynns care more about making your day perfect than making a large profit and for this reason they will continue to host wedding for decades to come. Thank you for everything, Mr and Mrs Douglas. Wellington, New Zealand xx

Dear Elaine and Glen. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a great review. We are so thrilled that your wedding went off as you had imagined and we know it was not easy for you as you had to arrange the whole thing from New Zealand. However as you found out we have a very experienced team here and they take organising weddings that originate from overseas in their stride. Our kitchen team are over the moon with he praise you have given them for their food, they take great pride in what they produce and each and every wedding here is a unique and special event to them and it shows. Thank you so much for your good wishes to the family, my Mum Kay loves to be here when we have a wedding , she has been organising them here since 1985 and never tire’ s , so its great to have that continuity here. We hope you will come and visit the next time you are back in Ireland, but for now and until we see you both again we wish you both long life and happiness. From Joe ( Jnr ) and all at Rathsallagh House

Where do I even begin. The venue itself is breathtakingly stunning. The staff could not have done enough for us in the run up to the big day and on our wedding day. Our expectations were surpassed with the service and attention to detail. Would highly recommend this venue to everyone planning their wedding. Could honestly not fault them on anything.

Dear Deirdre and Stephen . Thank you so much for taking the time to post a lovely review for us. Rathsallagh is beautiful all year round but as you found out in the summer its spectacular with its mature trees , walled gardens and just the country side in general. It was such a pleasure to be able to look after you all and we hope to see you both back here very soon. Please do keep any eye out for our past wedding couples only night next February, we will send you details when the date is finalised. Thank you again and we wish you both long life and happiness.

I don't even know where to begin writing this review of the most important day of our lives. Every single thing was perfect from start to finish and we honestly wouldn't change a thing. The wedding team: We first met with Catherine back in August 2015. Rathsallagh was our last viewing of 10 places within 3 days (we live in London so did it all in one go), and we just knew straight away that it was the place for us. I felt in safe hands from the very beginning, all the ladies on the wedding team are amazing - always replied to emails promptly, answered all my questions and nothing ever seemed to be a problem. They were so helpful with every aspect of the wedding. We decided to have the wedding reception on a Saturday and a BBQ on the Sunday - it was such a good decision as we had the place to ourselves all weekend and got to relax a bit more on Sunday! All the staff working across the weekend were so amazing, Steve & Mary were such a calming presence on the day (I don't think there was any issues and if there was I still don't know about them!!) and making everything work behind the scenes. Steve is a real credit to Rathsallagh - he is such a lovely guy. The food was absolutely out of this world all weekend. For our wedding meal we chose the beef and it was amazing - cooked to order for every person. Breakfast was the nicest we've ever had. And the BBQ on Sunday - wow. It really exceeded my expectations. The range of salads and food in general was incredible. A local man- Dermot - provided the pig on the spit for the BBQ and it was soo so delicious and he was such an interesting and nice guy. I was blown away when I saw the pavilion and how beautifully Rathsallagh had decorated it. I dropped down decorations, guest book, candy table etc.the week of the wedding and they placed it all out on the morning. It was just perfect and so amazing to see it all come together after all the months of planning and ordering things! Everyone was so impressed with the accommodation, as were we. I can't wait until we can go back and stay again! Our guests are still talking about the wedding and we had so many wonderful comments about Rathsallagh. Thank you so much for bringing our dream wedding to life! Keith & Amy Byrne xx

Dear Amy and Keith . Thank you so much for writing a great review. We are thrilled that Rathsallagh worked its magic for you . The team here are over the moon with the praise you have given them in particular Catherine ( here 30 years ) Mary ( 25 years ) Steve ( 2.5 years ) and local man Dermot who has been supplying Rathsallagh with his home bred rare pigs for years and years. As you know weddings at Rathsallagh are truly exclusive, i.e. no other guests on site only yours and when you can take us over for 2 or more days it is really special. Of course we are not just a wedding venue and we will have some lovely weekend packages to offer this coming January and February 2018 . Also please do keep an eye out for our past wedding couples only night on the 9th February 2018, we will send you details in due course. Until we see you both again we wish you both long life and happiness. From all at Rathsallagh House

Our wedding day was the best day of our lives and Rathsallagh played a big part in that. From the minute we viewed the venue we knew it was exactly what we wanted. The grounds and house are stunning for a wedding. The staff went above and beyond to ensure that everyone was happy and that the day ran smoothly. Our guests are still raving about Rathsallagh over a month later! They loved the accommodation, the food and the professionalism of the staff. I believe the scones at the drinks reception were renamed "little drops of heaven" by one of our guests. Another guest who is a professional chef himself was very impressed with the food and he is a hard man to impress! Overall we can't express how happy we were with the whole day and experience with Rathsallagh. A massive thank you to Catherine and the team for making our wedding day so memorable and special and we can't wait to revisit Rathsallagh again soon.

Dear Sinead and Eddie. Thank you for posting a lovely on Rathsallagh. Once more the team here have excelled and they are just so grateful to have received recognition of that from you guys. The kitchen team in particular are over the moon, had they know you had a professional chef on your guest list I am sure they would have been extremely nervous but again the results speak for themselves. We do hope that you will come back and see us early next year when we will have a special night for couples who were marred in Rathsallagh, we will let you know in due course when the dates are set. In the meantime we wish you both long life and happiness

Rathsallagh House...where do I start!! We recently got married at Rathsallagh House in June 2017 and what a venue! We received amazing service from the minute we contacted Rathsallagh for information. We live abroad and not only did Joe respond in detail to every question we had, he also kindly held a Skype call with us to view the grounds. Joe talked us through every room and every possibility for our wedding day and included some great stories and laughs for us too. We knew right away that this was the venue for us! The planning of the wedding couldn't have been easier with the lovely ladies at Rathsallagh. These wedding planners don't miss a thing!! Planning a wedding from abroad is not easy, but they helped in every way. They prompted us at the right times and provided templates and spreadsheets to make the preparations that much easier. They were always kind, understanding and responded to our emails immediately. They took away so much of our stress and we are so grateful for that! We decided to stay at Rathsallagh the night before our wedding. This was one of the best decisions we could have made! It was so exciting turning up the day before and having the extra time to prepare. The staff were unbelievable from the minute we arrived! The men had planned to play golf while the ladies prepared and completed finishing touched. The staff took care of all the heavy lifting and told the men to go have fun :) I will never forget how helpful the staff were at this time. In particular, to my Mum. My Mum was not well and they treated her like a Queen and ensured she was comfortable. They showed her to her room, brought her tea and sandwiches and took care of her all afternoon so that I could continue with the preparations. That is not the type of service you come by every day and it meant so much to me. That evening we enjoyed a beautiful meal with our close family and friends. It was the perfect way to begin our celebrations! The day of our wedding was perfect from start to finish. The lovely wedding planners checked in with me several times while getting ready to see if I wanted food or drink, or anything for that matter!! We were lucky enough to have a beautiful sunny day which made the grounds look twice as beautiful as they already are! The rooms, as we already knew, were spectacular. It was so lovely hearing all the guests speak about their rooms and the different characteristics each one had. The meal was perfect in every way! The service, the food, the atmosphere. All our guests raved about the food for days after. Everything ran smoothly and if something went wrong, we were none the wiser! The staff know what they are doing and planned it to perfection. The checked in with me from time to time, but never bothered us. They advised that we have a family member or friend as a point of contact to make decisions for us on the day if we were busy, which was a wonderful idea. The two days we spent at Rathsallagh is a time we will never forget. It felt like home! It will always have a special meaning to us and we couldn't be more thankful to Joe and all the staff. If I could give someone one piece of advice if they are considering booking Rathsallagh, DO IT! And book in for the night before too... you wont regret it :)

Dear Sarah and Paul. Thank you so much for writing such a fantastic and detailed review, the team here are so chuffed with the praise you have heaped on them. We know that planning a wedding from abroad is not easy it is way more stressful than planning from say at home here in Ireland and so our team here a very cognisant of that and go out to the way to facilitate in every way they can. Even more importantly however is that we have handled so many weddings that have originated from aboard that we know all the little details that need particular care and attention. In the last two years we have had many weddings from Australia , New Zealand, Canada and the USA, and the UAE, in the last 12 months we have had weddings from Teheran, Thailand ( 2) , South Africa, and close to home Malta, and may other European countries, and so we have seen a diverse mix of cultures, religion and ceremony types and none of them have presented a challenge that could not be met, , and that of course is all down to the fantastic team here. Thank you again for taking the time to write such a great review, and please od come back and see us when you are next home. For now we wish you both long life and happiness. From the Rathsallagh team

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for everything, both in the lead up to the wedding and the wedding day itself. The service provided by you and your staff was first class. Every person we spoke to on the day commented on the amazing food and the helpful staff. It was just fabulous and we wouldn't change a thing. There wasn't one detail we asked you to do that was overlooked so for this thank you. Can't wait to be back for a visit!

Rathsallagh House is as good a place as you will find to have a wedding reception in Ireland. We were absolutely thrilled with everything, the service and attention to detail was really second to none, and we are still getting compliments from our guests saying what a great time they had, and how much they loved the venue and also the food is spectacular. Hopefully we'll get to attend another wedding there as guests one day! In any case we'll be back for a visit over the coming months. Also a special mention to Stephen, Catherine, Gillian and Julie for all of the hard work they put into the day and night of the wedding. We really couldn't speak more highly of the staff. The staff and the venue are as good as we've ever encountered! I highly recommend this place, it's very, very special!

Rathsallagh House was the absolutely perfect venue for our wedding and we're so thankful to all the staff and family there. The staff did absolutely everything in their power to make it the best day possible and it felt like they genuinely cared about our wedding. Catherine, Julie and Gillian were so accommodating and made the months and weeks beforehand so easy and made the day itself so special. Special mention to Stephen for being so lovely to the entire party and going out of his way at every given opportunity. Food, rooms, reception and staff were impeccable. I couldn't recommend the place more highly and I wish we could do it all again.

From the minute we drove up the avenue to view Rathsallagh house for the first time we were sold and knew it was our venue. The old world charm and stunning setting of the hotel was just what we wanted for our special day. There were so many options for our ceremony and the fact that you have exclusive use of the venue for your wedding was just what we wanted as we were having a small wedding. The staff are so warm and friendly and the food is excellent. The rooms are all decorated differently and each and every one of them are stunning. The grounds of the hotel are really well maintained and there are so many beautiful opportunities for photographs within the estate that there's no need to go off elsewhere and spend ages away from your guests. We had our ceremony in the walled garden and the drinks reception followed afterwards in the same place, we were blessed with a scorcher of a day and so everyone enjoyed their drinks in the sun. Having the ceremony and reception in the one place made for a very relaxed day, we knew we were in great hands. It's not hard to see why Rathsallagh were voted Wedding Venue of the year. They deserve all the recognition they have gotten. So many of our guests spoke about how friendly and helpful each and every member of the staff were. Rathsallagh is now our very special place and we hope to return frequently for years to come.

Dear Sinead and Ondrej. Thank you very much for posting such a great review for Rathsallagh. What a lovely day it was for your wedding and as you say the fact that it can all take place on the one property makes it such a fun and relaxing time for all . And even it the weather was not so kind to us we have the option of the Orangery for ceremonies as well and of course we can leave the decision ( in or out ) to the very last minute, a necessity I suppose given the weather in Ireland. We are all very exited here now at the moment as not only did we win the Historic Hotels of Europe 2017 wedding destination of the year, we are now up for the Irish Gold Medal Awards for Country House of the Year and Wedding venue of the year. We hope you might come back and stay with us again soon – we will have a special past wedding couples only night next January ( we will e mail you details later this year ), but in the meantime we thankyou again for your review and we wish you both long life and happiness.

We cannot thank the staff at Rathsallagh for being so helpful in the build up to our wedding and so amazing on the day itself. All the staff were so friendly and it created such a relaxing fun atmosphere, they are a credit to rathsallagh. The venue was just incredible, it is such a beautiful unique setting. It was so great to have the whole place to ourselves for the two days, it was like having everyone in our own home and not a wedding venue. The food was also excellent, everyone was raving about it especially the extra helpings and the pig on the spit on the second day. We had a lot of guests who travelled from Australia and England and they had never experienced what an Irish wedding was like and they said it was unbelievable. I would highly recommend rathsallagh to anyone getting married it was just perfect, I only wish we could do it all over again!!!

I honestly cannot thank you both for everything you did for myself and Niall not only on our wedding day but in the lead up to it also, nothing was ever any hassle.

We had our wedding at Rathsallagh on 1st May 2017 and had the best day of our lives. We only went to see one other venue before choosing Rathsallagh as we fell in love with the place on our first visit. We loved the relaxed, homely atmosphere and Joe made us feel right at home, treating us to coffee and the nicest homemade biscuits ever. Having heard great things about their food, we were relieved when we went for our tasting and found the food to be fantastic. We also went to Sunday lunch with both sets of parents before the big day and we’d highly recommend this – the food was exceptional and we had a fantastic afternoon in anticipation of the big day. With regards to the planning of the day, the wedding coordinators were all amazing. We had contact with Catherine, Gillian and Julie, as well as Maeve who was very quick at getting back to any queries we had. All of the girls were fantastic to deal with. From booking the date in, right up to the day itself they were so organized and all over everything. Catherine was with us on the day itself and she was so so welcoming when we arrived after the ceremony. She even trekked around the grounds to find us when we were off getting our photos taken to say goodbye and that Stephen would be stepping in for the evening. Stephen was an absolute gentleman, and even though we were running a bit behind time coming into the room for dinner as our photographer had taken us off, he didn’t rush us at all. We were blessed to have a sunny afternoon so everyone was out in the garden for the drinks reception which really added to the day. We loved that the place was ours for the day and all the staff really do make you feel at home. All of our guests raved about the delicious food, the amazing staff, the beautiful bedrooms and the stunning grounds. Overall, we would have no hesitation in recommending Rathsallagh for your wedding. Rathsallagh have gotten the balance exactly right of making you feel like you are the only person ever to get married there and making it feel so special, but with the experience and understanding of running a wedding event so everything runs like clockwork. Special thanks also to Joanne, Tomas and Andrew for setting up and looking after us so well. We wish we could do it all again and will definitely be returning for Sunday lunch and an overnight stay soon so we can reminisce! Aly & Paul, 1st May 2017

Rathsallagh House is a very special place, and we feel extremely lucky that we got to have our wedding here. Our priorities were an amazing and unique venue with great food and a warm welcoming atmosphere; Rathsallagh provided this like no other venue could. Gillian, our wedding coordinator, is an absolute gem - from start to finish she provided the personal touch and made us feel as if we were the only couple to ever get married at Rathsallagh! On the day itself, everything ran so smoothly and this is solely thanks to Rathsallagh's depth of experience and attention to detail. We had a humanist wedding on site, and everybody loved the relaxed intimate atmosphere in the beautiful wood-panelled room. In addition, the stunning grounds make the perfect backdrop for our photos. Our guests are still raving about the spectacular bedrooms, the delicious food, and the great service at the wedding. We actually visited Rathsallagh the night after we got engaged so it will always have a special place in our hearts and we look forward to visiting it again and again for years to come. We cannot fault our wedding experience in any way, our only hope now is that one of our friends gets married at Rathsallagh so we have the pleasure of being a guest. Thanks to all the team at Rathsallagh for making our wedding day so special.

Rathsallagh House was the most perfect venue for our wedding. Everybody involved there and particularly the wedding coordinators couldn't have been more helpful and professional and everybody worked to ensure our every wish and need were met. The venue itself from the walled garden where we had our ceremony, to the house area and the pavillion and gardens and outdoor areas were just as we wanted- so welcoming and beautiful. The food was without fault and really and truly, our whole experience of Rathsallagh couldn't have been better. I would highly recommend this venue for a beautiful, warm and wonderful wedding.

Dear Karen and Derry . We are so thrilled that Rathsallagh worked its magic for you on your big day and thank you for taking the time to relate your experience on this forum. We were also very glad that the day was dry for you and that you could hold your ceremony in the walled garden, its over 300 years old and so has a magic all of its own. We hope you might come back and stay with us again soon – we will have some special past wedding couples only offers early next year - and relive some of those wonderful memories. In the meantime, we wish you both long life and happiness.

The most important thing I can say about this venue is that we cannot compliment our wedding coordinator (Gillian) or any of the wider Rathsallagh team enough. From start to finish, they aimed to make our preparation as easy as possible and we hadn't the slightest concern leading up to the day that what we'd hoped for wouldn't be delivered. The grounds, house, rooms are all beautiful and our guests loved everything about their experience. As the bride and groom, we had a fantastic day and couldn't have asked for better. We can't wait to go back.

Dear Aoife and Eamonn. Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review on Weddings on line for us. . Gillian is over the moon with the praise you have given her, she is one of a team of four Wedding coordinators who have been with us for a combined 70 years +, so that much experience really comes to the fore on the big day. .

The staff at Rathsallagh were beyond helpful, friendly and so accommodating. I have heard nothing but positive comments from our guests about the day, the venue, the food and even the parking arrangements on the day. Every small detail was considered so that there problems on the day. The guests loved their rooms and this is probably an area that understated on their website for the quality of the rooms that you are getting. As a couple we could not have wished for a better service from start to finish for our perfect day.

Dear Aileen and Olie ,. Thank you so much for taking the time to post a lovely review for us. We are thrilled to hear toast you guests enjoyed Rathsallagh so much. Rathsallagh is a little different to other main stream wedding venues in that we meet your guests as they arrive and escort them to the rooms. And as your guests found out the rooms here are huge and come with all the usual Five Star accoutrements; Nespresso machines, wi fi , phones TV’s some with doubled ended baths and showers built more than one !, bathrobes etc etc. Now to some this may sound like normal, but as you know its not for many of Irelands exclusive use wedding venues. We are getting very busy with weddings here now as we enter the month of May , however we will have some weekend dates available especially for couples who have had their wedding in Rathsallagh next January and February and we do hope that you guys will come down and see us again then. We wish you both long life and happiness. And thank you again from all at Rathsallagh

We loved the venue and are so happy we chose to have it there. It is 5 star in every aspect but instead of that feeling where you feel slightly out of place because of that its the absolute opposite because its like walking into a good friend or relations home when you arrive and you are always given a warm welcome! From dealing with Joe at the start when he listened to what we wanted and offered a package there and then to suit without any hidden extra's, onto dealing with coordinators throughout who were really helpful and to the day itself. The day was perfect. The venue looked great, the staff did a great job, everyone had loads to eat and drink and a few people said it was the best meal they have had at a wedding. The room looked great and anyone that had a room really loved it. We will always have fond memories of the day and a large part of that is down to Rathsallagh as a venue and the staff that run it. Couldn't fault it at all and will be hoping we can return for a weekend ourselves or just to another wedding!

Our wedding at Rathsallagh House was perfect. From the setting, to the food and accommodation. However the staff stood out. The level of service we received from booking our wedding to the day itself was second to none. I would highly recommend it as a wedding venue. Both our family and our guests had a fantastic experience. Thank you. Maeve & Paolo

We hope you will come back and stay with use someday soon and In the meantime, we wish you both long life and happiness.

We could not recommend Rathsallagh highly enough. The house and grounds are just stunning and the team are fantastic. We had no concerns at all leading up to the day as we knew the team were on top of everything. The day was seamless, we were looked after so well, as were all of our guests. We had to make slight changes to the table plan on the morning due to an illness and the day manager Catherine completely empathised and removed any stress from us and had the table plan updated in a matter of minutes. There were numerous other small touches aside from this throughout the day that assured us that our day was in the best of hands with Catherine and Stephen and the team. All of our family and friends absolutely loved Rathsallagh. We can’t say enough good things. Everything from the food to the rooms to the service was excellent. Thank you for a brilliant wedding!

All we can say is that everything was just AMAZING! We couldn't have imagined a better day & weekend. Over the last 14 months Julie & Catherine did everything in their power to make our day absolutely amazing & we cant thank them enough! We have already recommended Rathsallagh to all our friends who are now engaged & will continue to do so.Many of our guests commented on how amazing the lamb was, but also the food the day after, people said this was just incredible! Food was hugely important to us in planning our day & Rathsallagh far exceeded our expectations! Thank you, thank you, thank you for making our dream come alive!

Rathsallagh truly is the dream wedding venue. Everything was perfect from the day we booked. All the wedding planners are very experienced and Gillian in particular provided us with great help and advice throughout. Our guests are still talking about how amazing the venue was inparticular the food and staff. We stayed the night after our wedding too which was great as you really get to enjoy the house and gardens.

Hi Fiona and Mike . Thank you for posting such a lovely review and so quickly after your wedding. We are all thrilled here that your two days at Rathsallagh went so well for you . The team here are delighted with your review and also very proud of themselves. Feel back like yours is invaluable to us and is very much appreciated. That on top of our European award made the month of October one to remember. We knew we had been short listed for the “ Historic Hotel Wedding Experience Award for 2017” but would never dream that we would actually manage to win it. And win it we did in a ceremony in Greece two weeks ago. Historic Hotels of Europe annual awards honour excellence among almost 500 historic hotels in 18 European countries. This was a great achievement as it acknowledges the hard work and dedication of the Rathsallagh team . Thank you both once more for a really great review. Please do come down and see us in the new year we would love to catch up. In the meantime, we wish you both long life and happiness.

We had the pleasure of celebrating our marriage in Rathsallagh on 15th September 2016. Having viewed a number of venues, we booked Rathsallagh back in August 2015, and from that moment, Catherine and the team made us feel that we were the only couple getting married this year! Catherine was always available to us whenever we had a query or needed help, and the entire management and staff always made us so welcome when we visited in the run up to the big day. We had our ceremony in the walled garden, followed by drinks reception and dinner in the Pavilion. Our guests were completely blown away by the venue, the atmosphere and the character of Rathsallagh - we really felt we were in our own piece of heaven for the day. I cannot thank Catherine, Joe, Stephen and all the lovely people in Rathsallagh House who helped make our day so so special, from the welcome we received when we arrived to get ready, right through to when we left the following day - the professionalism and hard work you all put into Rathsallagh was evident - it will always have a special place in our memories. Thanks again for such a great day.

Hi Kevin and Ian. Thank you so much for writing such a lovely review, and thank you for making special mention of some of the team here not least Catherine, Stephen and myself. But you know it really is a team effort and we are so lucky to have one of the best wedding teams in Ireland at the moment,. A testament to that would be the “ Historic Hotel Wedding Experience Award for 2017” which was presented to us by Historic Hotels of Europe at the end of October . That and your endorsement means so much to us. It was an honour and a pleasure to host your wedding and to look after all of your guests. We will have some weekend availability this coming January , February and March and we do hope that you guys will come down and see us. Until then we wish you both long life and happiness.

My wife and I got married here on September 10th, and it was an unbelievable day. We first visited Rathsallagh on a trip home (both Irish based living in New York) in March 2015, and we immediately knew it was exactly what we wanted for our wedding - from the grounds, to the house, the pavilion, and staff everything was how we wanted it. The majority of the wedding planning was done via email and some phone calls. The ladies who look after the weddings at Rathsallagh, are nothing short of class. Gillian, Catherine, Julie and the others i'm sure We are forgetting, could not help enough and their advice was very much welcomed. They made planning a long distance wedding something quite manageable, if not easy. We would have been lost without them. When the day itself arrived, the grounds and house were pristine. While the original plan was drinks in the walled garden, there was a threat of rain so they were moved to the restaurant and front lawn. This worked out perfectly, as it turned into a beautiful day with a lot of people setting up on the tables and chairs on the lawn. The dinner itself was excellent. Good food was something we were focused on and it surpassed all expectations. The staff were excellent. Stephen the duty manager could not do enough for us, and was always available for anything we needed. Overall the day was everything we could have wanted. We have been told countless times by our guests that the wedding was the best they have ever been to and that was made possible by the wonderful people at Rathsallagh.

Hi Clodagh and Kyle . Thank you taking the time to write such a great review for us. Over the years we are finding that we are hosting more and more weddings not only from the UK,. France and main land Europe in general but also many more from Australia , Canada, New Zealand, the US and even from further afield, and as you guys have found out the team here are pretty good at helping you make all the arrangements which can be stressful sometimes when organising from so far away. Given the amount of weddings coming in from Europe then it was particularly pleasing for us all here to recently win the “ Historic Hotel Wedding Experience Award for 2017”. Historic Hotels of Europe annual awards honour excellence among almost 500 historic hotels in 18 European countries. This was a great achievement as it acknowledges the hard work and dedication of the Rathsallagh team and I am thrilled for them. Thank you guys once more for a really great review.

We had our Wedding Reception in Rathsallagh at the end of August. The venue is stunning and we were blessed with the weather. However, what really made the 2 days so exceptional for us was the staff who we cannot praise highly enough. From our first viewing of the venue right through to checking out, the consistency of service and attentiveness of the entire staff at Rathsallagh really blew us away and just added to such a special day. They made us feel unique which is no small feat given the amount of weddings they cater for. Many of our guests complimented the food, the accommodation but most importantly the staff. I cannot stress how important it was for us and how much it added to the experience feeling relaxed that everyone was being well taken care of. We cannot recommend the venue highly enough and if you are in a position to book the 2nd day exclusive you are in for a real treat... It's not the cheapest venue out there but we can confidently say you get more than you pay for!

Hi Mandy and Stephen. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a beautiful review for us.

Rathsallagh House was an amazing venue to have our wedding in. The wedding planners were very helpful, responsive and accommodating. On the day of the wedding the staff as a whole were so professional, they anticipated our every need and went beyond the call of duty in providing services to our guests. The venue is beautiful, it exudes a unique charm and character that helped to create a wonderful ambiance for the day of our wedding. The food in Rathsallagh is superb, we have been complimented repeatedly since our wedding day on how the food was of such a high standard. The staff of Rathsallagh helped to make sure our day went off without a hitch and I would certainly reccommend it as a venue to any newly engaged couples.

Fantastic venue with a lovely atmosphere. We had an amazing day with our ceremony in the garden, and we were delighted that we could have our dog with us for the celebrations.

Rathsallagh House Hotel was perfect in every way. The wedding co-ordinators were so helpful and accommodating in the planning stage. On the day, Catherine was so welcoming, her expertise and experience was invaluable. It was clear from our first meeting, the co-ordinators know all the tricks of the trade. The staff were great, nothing was a problem and they were always on hand. The evening manager was on top of everything and the meal and dancing ran effortlessly. The whole day flowed perfectly. As the bride and groom, we felt so relaxed because we could see that the staff had everything under control. The grounds are beautiful and such an asset for the hotel. The majority of our guests wandered the gardens on the day of the wedding or the day after and were all so impressed by the setting. The pavilion was beautifully and tastefully decorated as is the rest of the hotel. The guest rooms are so spacious and comfortable. Our guests that stayed loved that there was good coffee available in the rooms and little things such as the radio was playing relaxing music as they arrived was a thoughtful simple touch. The food served in Rathsallagh is second to none, it was beautifully cooked and presented and it was plentiful too. Our guests have been so complimentary of our choice of venue and I really couldn't have been more happy with our choice. Absolutely perfect from start to finish. Can't wait to go back again!

Having found Rathsallagh House online while searching for a unique venue for our wedding from Australia, I instantly fell in love with what I saw! During a brief visit home I met with Joe, the owner, who showed me around and I was sold straight away! Our wedding was a dream come true and everything about it turned out to be perfect for us. Rathsallagh House was a wonderful venue and for the 2 days we spent there it was a home away from home. Many of our guests had travelled from Australia and they completely fell in love with Rathsallagh house, its surrounds, comfort, charm and the fact that it was all ours for the 2 days. The staff tended to our every need. A very special thanks to Catherine, our amazing wedding coordinator who granted our every request and made everything run so smoothly. Also to Ben, Charlie, Miriam and Dermot. We would highly recommend it to anyone planning a wedding in Ireland! The venue is completely unique and will always hold a special place in our hearts. We cannot thank everyone enough and we hope to be back to visit again very soon!

Having looked for a venue in Wicklow for a few months, Rathsallagh and the staff of Rathsallagh were a breath of fresh air. Far from their pretentious and unhelpful rivals in Wicklow, the staff of Rathsallagh were warm and welcoming long before they even knew we were a potential wedding couple. Everything was clear, concise and stress free in the lead up to the wedding but it was their level of detail on the day of the wedding that just blew me away. We didn't hear of any issues that arose on the day because everything was dealt with by Rathsallagh staff. The fact the bride was codliac was no trouble at all, I was followed around by gluten free food all day! On our sunny wedding day the beautiful private grounds and house seemed a million miles away from the cues of traffic as the rest of the Ireland scrambled to Glendalough for the good weather. I really couldn't fault Rathsallagh and I cant thank Gillian, Patricia and the team enough.

Hi Jessica and John . Thank you so much for wiring a lovely review. We Are thrilled that the day went so well for you . As you have said the level of detail from the team here is impressive, and I suppose the fact that our Wedding Coordinators have a combined 60 years of experience behind them is testament to that . We very much hope that you both can come back and see us in the New Year, we have just released some lovely weekend availability for January, February and March. Until then we thank you again for a great review and we wish you both long life and happiness.

We loved every minute of our wedding in Rathsallagh House. The Wedding Planners were excellent, so professional. We had very little to do and nothing was an issue. Our guests all commented on what a lovely venue it is and they all really enjoyed the dinner. Quite a few said it was the nicest wedding venue they had been to.
Review by
When we started planning our wedding we said there were three important elements to a good wedding; great food, a venue that made an impact and an excellent wedding band. Rathsallagh provided two of those for us. Rathsallagh was the perfect venue and I couldn't imagine having our wedding anywhere else. When we had our initial appointment to view the venue we met Joe the owner. Joe was a bundle of energy and really enthusiastic about us having our wedding at Rathsallagh. Joe gave us a tour of the grounds, brought us to see the function room and the rooms available. Joe had some great ideas about how we could make the function room our own, and ran us through some great ideas other guests had. We could really visualise having our wedding there. On the day the staff were amazing. We didn't have to worry about anything. The staff were very welcoming to us and all our guests. We, including the guests, were blown away by the quality of food. It really was incredible, in fact some guests emailed us afterwards saying it was as good as a high quality restaurant and they would have happily paid for it! We booked the venue for the day after for a family bbq. This allowed us to have the venue exclusively for the weekend. The pig on a spit was gorgeous and the buffet food was really high quality. They even brought out more food, that was left over from the bbq, at 11pm and this was very welcome by all. We really would give this venue a glowing reference. There were a few small things, and in the interest of being fair to people considering this venue it is important to provide a fair review. On the morning after the wedding some rooms, including the main room, didn't have any hot water and I believe this was due to the venue being an old house. When we met with Joe we were given the impression that a lot of extras were included in the price, however, when we met with the team we learnt this was a misunderstanding on our behalf. Therefore, I do recommend that couples check any assumptions just to avoid disappointment. I don't think we were mislead, I think we just didn't ask the right questions. I do think Rathsallagh is good value. It is a bit more expensive than other venues but what you get in return is very high quality food, a high quality service from a group of very well trained staff, a beautiful venue and setting and the peace of mind that your guests are having a great time.
Response from Rathsallagh House
Hi Charlie and Aideen . Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a fabulous review for us. The team here are thrilled that the day went so well for you , and in particular the BBQ the day after. It is lovely to be able to do that and have the House exclusively for you and your guests on day two. We do apologise that some of the rooms in the older section of the house had no hot water on the morning of departure, this was a very temporary blip, we now have a brand-new boiler in that section. Also we do apologise for any inconvenience in relation to what you thought was included and what was not. Many of the things that make up our wedding packages ( complimentary tea / coffee and homemade sconces and biscuits on arrival, engraved Newbridge Silverware cake knife, wedding insurance etc ) are included , but other optional items are charged for as required and as inducted on our package list. We do very much hope that you will come back and stay with us very soon. We have now released our weekend availability for next January, February and March , these will be the only months with weekend dates for 2017 . We wish you both long life and happiness. And thank you again from all at Rathsallagh

I've given a top score to Rathsallagh as we were just blown away with our April wedding!! It was everything we imagined and more besides. To be honest, we fell in love with Rathsallagh the moment we drove up the gates and it did not disappoint. Catherine, Gillian, Patricia, Stephen and Sinead and all the staff were amazing! They were all so lovely to deal with and very professional. The food was amazing and the wine flowed. Unfortunately, it rained on our day and were were so disappointed that we couldn't use the grounds to the fullest extent but we still managed to get some wonderful pictures in the house. Regarding the value I have given it full marks but it is expensive but we valued spending the money here on the good food and drink, service and scenery rather than any other embellishments or extras. We were absolutely thrilled with how everything worked out and we really couldn't fault a thing only the weather :)
Response from Rathsallagh House
Hi Clara and Pauric . Thank you for taking the time to post a lovely review. The 8th April 2016 only seems like only a few weeks ago and we hope that you both are very well. It was a pity that it rained on the day, but you know it was such a wonderful day none the less, and the fact that Rathsallagh is exclusively yours certainly helped in that regard. . Catherine, Gillian, Patricia, Stephen and Sinead ( currently on maternity leave and we wish her all the best ) team are chuffed to bits with the praise you have given them, they have well over 60 years of experience between them so its great to be able to tap into their knowledge on weddings. . We sincerely hope that you both can come back and see us again soon, we have just released some lovely weekend availability for next January, February and March. Until then we thank you again for a great review and we wish you both long life and happiness.

Don't even think about looking anywhere else! We got married three weeks ago and held our reception at Rathsallagh. From the minute we walked in to view the venue a year ago, to the minute we checked out the next day, there is not one thing we could possibly find fault with. The venue itself is stunning, from the drive up (which will completely awe all your guests), to the cosy sitting rooms & receptions rooms, and the fact that each of the bedrooms are decorated individually and beautifully. Someone had said to us before the wedding that the weather won't matter with Rathsallagh and they were completely right - it rained ALL DAY and we hardly even noticed, we just enjoyed the log fires. The pavilion function room is amazing, and just gets even prettier as the evening goes on, with fairy lights twinkling outside. When chatting about venues, we always agreed that one of the most important aspects of a wedding reception was the food. Rathsallagh has to be one of the best places I have ever eaten, and not just in Ireland! The tasting meal last November was incredible but there is always the worry that catering for a large wedding party won't be the same - I don't know why i ever doubted. We had the beef, which is cooked to order of preference for each guest (where else would you find this?!) and guests are still talking about it weeks later. Most important was their attention to detail - we had a number of coeliacs at the wedding (including myself) and not only was this catered for with no hassle, we had g/f canapes, g/f midnight feast and cream brulee offered to guests for dessert instead of the usual fruit salad I'm used to. Staff made such an effort to ensure that g/f guests were found for the midnight feast no matter where they had moved to. I could go on and on about the venue, food etc., but the biggest reason I would do it all over again in heartbeat in Rathsallagh is their staff. We first met with Catherine on the viewing and the first thing that came across was how much she loved the place. Not only did she take an hour showing us around that day, she also took time again a couple days later to meet with my parents and show them around, although unplanned. From the day we booked Rathsallagh, we had absolutely nothing to worry about. All of the staff that I dealt with were so lovely and couldn't do enough to help us out and answer any queries quickly. The biggest thing for me was that on the day (and since), all of our guests have spoken so highly of the staff there. Mags & Steven looked after the day itself and I think the majority of our guests got to talk to them at some stage, there was literally nothing they didn't have covered. I could go on and on but just go view this place and BOOK IT! Oh and maybe invite us to the wedding, I could totally go for another one of those dinners :-)

I got married in Rathsallagh House in March and I feel I have to write this review to give this place the credit it deserves. From the moment we met Joe a year before our wedding we knew we had chosen the right place. He was nothing but accommodating something other places we visited were not. we just loved the warm cosy atmosphere of the house and the wow factor of the pavillion. As many brides are I was very particular about what I wanted and nothing seemed like too much trouble. I must give a special mention to Catherine Gillian and Patricia the wedding co ordinators. they had to put up with many an email from me and dealt with it all so professionally. The day it self was magical , it snowed in the morning and the house looked breathtaking covered in snow. our guests were so impressed by the individually decorated rooms and the standard of food and service, my only wish is that i could do it all over again, Rathsallagh will always be so special to us now and i hope we will get to come back again in the near future.

I don't normally post reviews but on this occasion it is a must :-) We recently got married here & I can't say a big enough thank you to the wedding team for all their help. They were absolutely amazing throughout the whole process and made my job so much easier & also made our day as fantastic as it was! I've heard numerous comments from our guests on the day of and after the fact about the beautiful setting,great rooms,friendly and efficient service etc.. Myself & Charlie were discussing on honeymoon about the day itself and if we would change anything but the common theme was that we would do it all over again in Rathsallagh without a doubt. We had a great night the night before also and everyone was super helpful. As part of the bridal party on the day we were all very impressed with how relaxed but also efficient the service was. I would highly recommend it & i have no doubt that we will be back celebrating our 1st Anniversary there :-)

We had our wedding in Rathsallagh House last Christmas, and we can't speak highly enough about this venue. The staff couldn't do enough for us and our guests, and we didn't have to worry about a thing on our wedding day as we knew it was all under control which was great peace of mind. The rooms were all absolutely beautiful, and our guests couldn't stop talking about how gorgeous the venue was. The food was also first rate, and the service during our wedding meal was of the highest standard. We really were treated like royalty for the day, and it made our day more special than it already was. After getting married, we realised that the most important decision in the wedding preparation stage is choosing the right venue. Thankfully for us, we chose Rathsallagh house, which definitely didn't disappoint and this is why we are nominating Rathsallagh for the well deserved award of Exclusive wedding venue of the year award.
Response from Rathsallagh House
Hi Caroline and Paddy . Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review. And also for your nomination for the Exclusive wedding venue of the year award, that is very much appreciated. Christmas is a lovely time of year for a wedding, and we are thrilled that you both were happy with how your big day went at Rathsallagh. As its around the right time we wish you both a very Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary , and also of course the compliments of the season. Maybe you can come and see us over the winter as we have some lively romantic weekend breaks now on our web site. Thanks again from all at Rathsallagh House

I have been overwhelmed with the whole Team at Rathsallagh house from the moment I met them to the weekend of our wedding. The team there from the Wedding Co-ordinators, Duty Manager, Bar and Waiting staff have been wonderful. We stayed the night before and the night after our wedding and we were blown away by the quality and professionalism of every single member of staff at all times, not only to ourselves but to our guests, it was 10star service all the way, if that even exists! The day of the wedding ran like clockwork, we were made to feel by the Wedding Planners and all staff that we were the most important people in the world and they showed genuine excitement for us on our big day, I don't think I could ask for anything to be done any differently the only sad part was that we had to leave Rathsallagh on Sunday. I would have absolutely no hesitation to recommend this venue to any future couples - enjoy the luxury and first class treatment without paying first class prices. Hospitality at it's very finest.

We would like to write our comments as to how special Rathsallagh House & staff were for wedding. We had an amazing wedding day in Rathsallagh on Monday October 26th. We wish to comment in particular on the food and wine which were delicious and were really enjoyed by all the guests. Also the staff, in particular: Gillian, Stephen, Catherine, Patricia, Sinead and all the serving and house-keeping staff who went out of their way to accommodate all our requests and were so friendly and accommodating on the day and throughout all the planning. I still don't know how Gillian remembered everything! We had a lot of requests such as last minute changes to the seating plan, extra beds required in the rooms for children, stickers under the plates for prizes, podiums, microphone, standup tables, play tables!!! Rathsallagh House also allowed both families to get ready beforehand in the hotel, my family in the Orangerie and Hugh's in the Kilbarry room. It meant that we had a lovely morning with everyone together and it wouldn't have been the same getting ready in a B&B or in Dublin and then traveling down. So thank you all so much for making our day so lovely, intimate and relaxing. It was exactly how we wanted it to be. Clare and Hugh

We would just like to thank Catherine and her team for the fabulously professional and personnel job they did in helping us organise our wedding. Literally nothing was too much trouble, for example our three year old son was demanding sausages at 6pm- a request I am sure that the kitchen could have done without at that time (!) and they were provided immediately. From the moment we booked our wedding with Rathsallagh they couldn't have done enough for us. Everyone was raving about the venue, the food the wine and the band. We chose the red wine from Puglia and it went down big with our guests and we also chose Johnnie be Goode the Rathsallagh House band and everyone was literally dancing for the night. We'd like to thank Catherine in particular as we dealt with her practically exclusively from the start and she was just a dream to deal with. If you want to pick a venue who really know what they are doing, are generous (all our guests were offered second and third helpings of steak!) and who are kind and professional to deal with then I would highly recommend Rathsallagh. The one draw back, which I suppose is a compliment to them really, was that there wasn't enough rooms to offer our guests and many more people wanted to stay than we could assign rooms to. I think it would really be worth their time to consider building a few more rooms as assigning the rooms caused us a little bit of stress as we had to leave a lot of our guests out. Apart from that tiny thing, we really couldn't fault the beautiful venue, the charm and professionalism of all the staff and we'd like to thank them from the bottom of our hearts.
Response from Rathsallagh House
Hi Deirdre and Shane . Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review for us. Catherine and her team are absolutely thrilled . Every one here is chuffed with the praise you have given them, even our House band Johnny Be Goode . The one thing we are struggling against here is the lack of rooms, we have 35, and with double ups etc we can get almost 100 on site , but we could do with 10 or 12 more rooms. . We do have over 45 B&B beds in a 10km radius and we help organise a shuttle to those in the evening , but even so you are right we do need more rooms and are working on it . Again than you so much for your kind review, it was such an honor and a pleasure having you all at Rathsallagh

We got married in October 2015 and had our reception at Rathsallagh; it honestly exceeded our expectations in every way. I have given in 5 stars for all categories because we really found no faults here, from the venue to the staff to the food it was exceptional. They sell their hotel as a family home and it really comes across, we met the owners several times over the weekend we were there and all of their staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome but also looked after at every turn. The quality of staff and service they offer is second to none; not only are they all so helpful and friendly but you can tell they enjoy their jobs and are very happy working at Rathsallagh; a unique selling point in my opinion! All of our guests raved about the wedding meal; they couldn't believe the beef was cooked to order for each guest, there was so much talk about the canapés and the wine that was served. One of our guests is a recipe developer from New York and she is already trying to re-create the delicious brown bread we had for breakfast. The other big topic of discussion was the beautiful bedrooms; each one different but equally comfortable and luxurious. We were so lucky as we had absolutely fabulous weather and really got to see Rathsallagh in all of it's glory, looking back now on our photos I am again blown away by how beautiful the hotel and grounds are. We really cannot speak highly enough about Joe and the wedding team at Rathsallagh, from our very first enquiry to the last moment at checkout the wedding team went out of their way to give us 5-star treatment. We can't wait to go back and reminisce about all the wonderful memories we have of Rathsallagh and our wedding day; it truly is a special place!

Hi Ciara. Thank you so much for writing a great review. We are thrilled that you found Rathsallagh to be as we try and imagine it to be for our guests. Thank you for your praise for the food at Rathsallagh, the kitchen team are really chuffed. We always cook to order as we have our own in house catering team – not a lot of exclusive use venues do these days - , and of course we are not just a wedding venue being a fine dining destination as well, particularly in the winter. Please do come back and see us soon, it can be lovely just to stroll around the walled gardens and re live some of those wonderful memories. We wish you both the compliments of the season.

I couldn't be happier with Rathsallagh. They were a pleasure to work with from start to finish and went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly on the day. The food was amazing, the staff so helpful, the rooms are incredible and Catherine and the team were just a pleasure to work with. The venue is beautiful, well maintained and so relaxing. And the wedding photos in the gardens are just amazing!. I highly recommend Rathsallagh if you want a relaxed, hassle free wedding in a beautiful setting with fantastic food.

Where do I start !! We got married at Rathsallagh 10 weeks ago , from the start of planning to the wedding day the whole team were amazing. Planning a wedding from abroad can be stressful but Catherine , Trish and Joe were amazing to deal with, no query was too big or small! The attention to detail on every aspect of our stay , the wedding day and BBQ the following day was outstanding. They thought of things you would never dream of just down to the little things like putting my bouquet in water after the meal to preserve it , the whole team works so well together!! The food was outstanding , something they are so well known for , we risked the lamb as our main and it went down a storm , everyone is still talking about the food ! I could talk all day about their professionalism , both our families from Ireland & Scotland raved about Rathsallagh as a wedding venue and they all had an amazing stay . I can honestly say if you choose Rathsallagh as your exclusive wedding venue it will exceed even the highest of expectations.

Dear Lisa and Jonathan , or Mr and Mrs Patterson now. Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review. Catherine and Trish ( and of course me as well ) are chuffed to bits that we got a special mention on line from you. I was thrilled when you decided to risk the Lamb, you know it’s a brave choice , but we love cooking it and as so many weddings these days have almost all the same menu’s it went down a treat. It was a pleasure having you all here and the Scottish contingent were great fun. Please do come back and stay with us again soon,. We wish you both the compliments of the season.

I can honestly say without any hesitation whatsoever that Rathsallagh deserved the highest rating in all categories that I can give, our day and the lead up to was so fantastic on all levels, the venue, atmosphere, food, staff; from professionalism to the friendly and relaxed manner in which it was received. Rathsallagh certainly has something special to offer, of course that is said without a biased opinion based on personal experiences from other weddings I have attended. I would say to any bride to strongly consider Rathsallagh as your venue you most definetly would not be disappointed, I just wish I could do it all again! I am happy to offer further feedback or answer any questions for any brides - [email protected]

Dear Jessica. What a lovely review, thank you . Also thank you so much for your strong endorsement of Rathsallagh to other potential brides and grooms, nothing can beat a recommendation from first-hand experience. You said you wished you could do it all over again, well would you believe we have a couple coming back next year to celebrate all over again after getting marred here 20 years ago , we have been around for a bit !. Now it may not be a renewal of vows, but it will be a great party. Thank you again for your review and we wish you both the compliments of the season. From all at Rathsallagh House

We had our wedding in Rathsallagh in August this year. For any bride/groom that are looking for the most beautiful country venue with the most magnificent surrounding grounds, this is the one! The O’Flynn family and Catherine, (the wedding co-coordinator) and her team made us so relaxed from the start - her can-do; easing going, yet unbelievably organised attitude made the run up to the wedding extremely calm and enjoyable. She was always so cheerful and helpful. We could never have envisaged the outcome on our wedding day. The reception surpassed all of our expectations. The grounds of Rathsallagh are really out of this world. We visited in winter when booking our wedding and it really is a venue for any time of the year. From the roaring turf fires and cosy feels in winter to the stunning walks around the grounds in spring time. Our summer wedding reception started off in the walled garden where our champagne reception was held. We also had our photos taken here so we felt we weren’t missing out on any of the fun with our guests! A really special start to our celebrations. Our wedding meal was 10/10 - there is no other way to describe it. The beef was cooked to your liking which was a big talking point amongst our guests because generally at weddings beef is cooked the same way for all guests, followed by the mouth-watering warm berry crumble with homemade vanilla ice-cream! Topped off with an outstanding service. The big oak tree on the grounds lit up with fairy lights at dusk while guests sat outside watching the sun set was a superb sight! The dedicated and helpful staff working in Rathsallagh really made our day for us! Stress free and absolutely nothing was a problem from start to finish. Their helpfulness and on-point execution of all aspects on the day was truly remarkable. I would highly recommend Rathsallagh to anyone considering wedding locations - its far from just a venue, its an entire experience. We will definitely be back to visit this wonderful place!

Dear Elaine and Alan : Thank you so much for taking the time to write a super review and indeed endorsement of Rathsallagh and the team here, it is so much appreciated. We are very proud of Catherine Lawlor, she has been here nearly 30 years and certainly knows what she is doing when looking after a wedding party . We do wonder sometimes if she is not the longest serving Wedding Coordinator in any property in Ireland, with well over 1,000 weddings under her belt she must be up there. The kitchen team here are chuffed to bits over your comments on their food, we have our own in house catering team her and they are very proud of what they do. Thanks you again for a great review and please do come back and see us again soon. We wish you the compliments of the season.

As parents of the Bride we were very involved in all the interaction and planning for Elaine & Alans's wedding on the 6th of August 2015 in Rathsallagh House. Catherine and the team in Rathsallagh House were simply amazing and from beginning to end covered every detail to perfection. The best compliment one can pay to them is that if we had to organize the day again we would change nothing. Real class 10 out of 10!!!

Dear Pat & Saidhbh: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. It’s not often that the parents of the bride post reviews as well so this is doubly appreciated.

I can honestly say that Rathsallagh was the perfect wedding venue for us. Every time we visited to speak with Gillian or to have a look around, we were met with the most warm welcome from the ladies and Joe. Nothing was too much trouble. I was at ease the whole way through the wedding process. The day itself was like a dream, everything ran seamlessly down to the hard work of the whole team. The meal was the most delicious wedding food we have ever tasted. And we are still getting compliments on it today. It is the most warm, friendly beautiful and exclusive venue in our opinion. We would recommend Rathsallagh to anyone who is looking for a venue that makes you feel so special on this very special day.

Dear Noelle and Column. Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review. Gillian is absolutely over the moon that you gave her a specific mention. ( as am I ! ) .

THE WEDDING THAT ALMOST NEVER WAS We were married in Rathsallagh House in September 2014. In the July before our wedding my husband's father became very ill and sadly two weeks before the wedding, he passed away. We were left devastated. It was an extremely emotional time for us and the wedding took a back seat, in fact, we weren't sure if we would go ahead at all. Hens and Stags had been cancelled the previous month and we had no real will to go ahead with our day without him. Catherine and her team at Rathsallagh were so understanding. In the months that my father-in-law was sick they were a quiet voice in the background, letting us know they were there if we needed them but never once putting pressure on us to make decisions about our day. Catherine was a constant support, she was there to advise when needed. When we finally made the decision to go ahead (10 days before the wedding) Catherine pulled out all the stops. She had been busy with preparations in the background during the previous months and all of the hassle of wedding planning was taken away from us. I can honestly say I did not stress about one thing in the lead up to our wedding as I knew she had it covered which meant we were able to grieve and spend time with my husband's family in the lead up to the wedding. On the morning of the wedding my father took very ill and had to be taken by ambulance to hospital. He suffers from arthritis and literally could not get out of the bed, his pain was that bad. The paramedics felt that once they got him to the hospital and administered some pain relief (morpheine no less!) that he would be able to make the wedding. They took his suit and wash bag with them in the ambulance and told me he'd see me at the church. We delayed the wedding by 1.5hrs. My Welsh cousin went with my Dad but he wasn't sure of the way back to our church venue so Naas hospital paid for a taxi for my Dad and drove him back to Wicklow, suited and booted and ready to walk his daughter down the aisle. This naturally delayed our reception and again Rathsallagh were amazing. Patricia was there on the day and everything had to be pushed back by a few hours, and nothing was a problem. I wasn't exactly thinking straight in the run up to the wedding and one of the errors I made was leaving at least 6 people off my seating plan (including my brother and sister-in-law ????). I wasn't even told about it, Trish had them seated before I even knew there was a problem. I was told not to worry, it's all sorted. The food on the day was amazing. We didn't sit down to our meal until 7 that evening and had almost 200 guests and everything was just perfect. They couldn't have looked after us better. I cannot recommend Rathsallagh highly enough. The venue is so beautiful, the food is amazing (I haven't even mentioned the tasting day which was such a fabulous experience), Catherine is an absolute gem, I've never met someone who can do their job so well almost under the radar, she's constantly working away and doing her best for you in the background but to say she is a silent pillar of strength by your side is an understatement. We needed all the help we could get and she didn't disappoint. I haven't even mentioned the girl who followed me down to the very end of the walled garden with a platter of food while our photographer was busy taking pics, because she had overheard me say to my bridesmaid "I'm starving" as I got out of our bridal car. I wish I could remember her name. And I haven't mentioned the numerous compliments I received from our guests about everything from the food, to the staff, to the accommodation and the breakfast ... oh the breakfast, yum! And the fact that you have the entire house to yourself makes it feel so much more personal. I cannot recommend Rathsallagh highly enough. Our hearts just weren't in it in the lead up to the wedding and Catherine and her team turned our "let's just do it and get it over with" attitude on its head and I can honestly say that in spite of the heartache of the previous weeks and the worry of the wedding morning, we had an amazing day and have beautiful memories to cherish from our day, made possible by Rathsallagh.

Dear Ciara and Nicky: Thank you for the most beautiful and heartfelt review. Of course the team here knew what was going on in the background and to be honest we don’t know how you coped so well with all the trials and tribulations thrown at you both. Catherine and the girls were so touched to read your review and are absolutely over the moon with the praise you have given them. I know you were due to celebrate your Anniversary with us recently and had to cancel at the last moment , ( we hope the little one is ok now ) but we do hope you will come back and see us soon and get to re live some of the memories of what was really a great day,.

We had an amazing wedding day at Rathsallagh, the staff were wonderful & did so much to make the day special for us. We really felt at home there & having the house to yourselves is really special.

Dear Brian and Lorraine . Thank you for a lovely review. We so much enjoyed having you here with us for your big day,. Having the BBQ on day two is a great idea and of course we use a local free range pork supplier and then cook the entire pig over an open fire using wood from our own sustainable plantations. Please do come back and see us son, we have some great little romantic breaks in the winter ( see our web site ) and the two of you can walk the grounds hand in hand an relive all those great memories.

We thought of choosing Rathsallagh House as our wedding venue because of its reputation for excellence and because of fond childhood memories of visiting with family. From the beginning of our enquiries, we found the staff extremely helpful, friendly and responsive to every question and query we had, and from our initial visit we immediately knew that this would be our venue and looked at no other venues. Nothing was ever too much trouble and we always felt that they were as invested as us in making it the perfect day. Their recommendations for external supplier were also very thorough and impartial – and good quality. The day itself was easily one of the most magical days of our lives. I’m not quite sure how I can emphasize that enough. We were very lucky in that the weather on the day was beautiful, but that only emphasized and accentuated the house and grounds. As you can see in the pictures, it is a beautiful setting and so well maintained. We made use of the walled garden for drinks and canapés (which were beautiful) and enjoyed the weather. We had made use of the food and wine tasting a few months previous and the food on the day didn’t disappoint - excellent quality produce cooked and presented fantastically. The wine was rather good too. Again, the waiting staff were brilliant - attentive, efficient and friendly. As it was a summer’s day/evening, our guests were to be found enjoying drinks in the main reception room, drinks area, and grounds. Many of our friends played a (quite competitive) game of croquet under the tree. In terms of accommodation, every room is different with a character of its own but to a consistently high standard. They are also big, very big. Our room looked out over the lawn and was perfect. All in all, I can’t recommend Rathsallagh enough. I think that the buildings, grounds, food, drinks etc are extremely important for a wedding and indeed, at Rathsallagh, they are all impeccable. But for us, the best thing about Rathsallagh is the people. We were made to feel special, as were our guests. This wasn't just another wedding for them, this was our wedding, and we felt that from the first moment we met Catherine, Patricia, Gillian and all of the other staff. We spent our first wedding anniversary there this year and they remembered us and welcomed us back with the same smiles and greetings before and gave us a bottle of champagne to say welcome back. Any criticisms? I lost my croquet game...

Hi Fergus and Clare. Thank you for taking the time to write such a super review. Because you knew Rathsallagh from childhood it was particularly lovely for us to be able to host your wedding here. It was also great that the weather was kind that June so you could enjoy the walled garden, it can be magical for a reception. We want to thank you both particularly for the praise you have given the staff here, your review, along with many others from these pages, is displayed proudly on our staff notice boards,. You have no idea what that does for the well being and morale of the team. It was great to see you both back with us recently and we hope we will see you again soon. We wish you both the compliments of the season. From all at Rathsallagh House

We found Rathsallagh house to be the perfect venue for us due to it's relaxed atmosphere, excellent guest rooms and facilities and exceptional food. We chose it on this basis and on the fact that it's dining room was just off a main hallway with 2 separate drawing rooms which were perfect for older guests who wanted to chat instead of dancing the night away after dinner. While planning we could always count on the wedding planners to have the latest information on our wedding and be able to answer any queries in a timely manner. On the day itself, once we arrived we didn't have to worry about anything, the staff took care of ourselves and our guests and covered every eventuality. This meant that myself and my husband could relax and enjoy our day with our family and friends. I really couldn't fault Rathsallagh, it was all we'd hoped for and judging by feedback since the wedding, the vast majority of our guests would be in agreement.

Firstly it's a bit of a misnomer saying that I am one part of a bridal couple, we are two men in a same sex marriage, so we were two grooms. Rathsallagh House was the perfect location for our marriage and we knew this from the first time we set foot in it. The atmosphere is welcoming and relaxing, just what you want on your special day, both for you and your guests. The staff are the pinnacle of professionalism, they're so welcoming and reassuring, nothing is a bother to them. The team of wedding coordinators are just fantastic, they are hugely amenable, they give great advice and are extremely accommodating. My parents are elderly and the staff had the presence of mind to pay special attention to their needs, a huge thank you to every member of staff. The food there is always top class, I could wax lyrical about it but I won't bore you to tears suffice to say you couldn't ask for better. The House itself is so beautiful, the bedrooms are amazing, breakfast is the best in Ireland. I cannot speak highly enough of Rathsallagh but the proof is in the fact that we have been back to stay numerous times since, as have my parents, family and friends and I had my 40th birthday with 20 of my friends where once again we were treated like royalty.

Thank you so much to Catherine, Gillian, Trish and all the great staff at Rathsallagh House for helping to make our wedding day so spectacular. From the planning, (which was from Australia) to the day of my wedding it was fantastic, the ladies were at hand with any enquires whether big or small and helped me so much, Rathsallagh exceeded my expectations. The food was great everything we hoped for and as I am a chef, I am known for being particular when it comes to food and it was perfect also I had a special request for venison for myself and Shane as a surprise for Shane and the ladies helped me keep it secret till he had seen the menu :) All the rooms were fabulous I really liked how each one has its own unique decor from the old to the new all ware lovely and the surroundings ware spectacular made for some great photos. all our guest are still raving about both the day, venue and food. Everyone including myself and my husband could not have a bad word to say about our experience everything was wonderful. We will look forward to staying there again maybe for our anniversary :)Thanks to all involved in making our day so memorable

We had our wedding at Rathsallagh in November 2012. It is a fantastic venue and the fact that it is available for exclusive use makes it really special. We had 210 people for the meal, in the pavilion suite and it was brilliant. People are still raving about the food, and the service was brilliant. Unfortunately it was too cold for us to do all our photos outside so we used one of the drawing rooms for family photos - this worked out well but if there's anything I could change I'd say a summer wedding would work wonderfully here as you could do so many great shots outside in the stunning grounds, and get lots of group shots. The rooms are lovely - its a shame there aren't more as we had about 100 people wanting to stay. The staff at Rathsallagh are wonderful. they are so obliging, helpful, and genuine. We're already looking for an excuse to go back for a night!!

Hi Maureen First of all apologies for taking so long to respond, to be honest we have only just come across this section of Weddings On Line. We are so delighted with your review, to others November 2012 would seem like a long time ago now, but for us it was like yesterday,. We still have all the same term here that were with us back then, and they are very proud of your appreciation for their efforts. Also since you were last here we have added on 6 extra rooms, not a lot, but it all helps. We do hope that you will come back and see us again very soon. . We wish you both the compliments of the season and thank you again for taking the time to write a review for us. From all at Rathsallagh House
