Testimonials

I just wanted to drop you a note to express our gratitude for everything over the last few months and on our wedding day. We were finding wedding planning pretty stressful even before it became a "covid wedding", and I honestly don't think we could have done it without the kindness, pragmatism and helpfulness of you and your team. We are so grateful for your flexibility and openness as our 85 person wedding became a 15 person wedding. You were always so aligned with and accommodating of the kind of day we were planning and feeling we were trying to achieve, and so incredibly understanding of all our needs, particularly regarding our more health-conscious guests. You made getting to the day so clear and simple, and you made the day itself run so smoothly and beautifully. 

I also wanted to particularly mention how wonderful the food was, both the evening before and the day of the wedding. Our families are still telling us how delicious it all was at every opportunity! If I'm honest, I hadn't anticipated how important the food would become given how small the event was - with the rest of the day necessarily toned down for the much smaller group, and given the restrictions of social distancing, having such gorgeous meals really made it all very special for us.

We went into this wanting a laid-back celebration that we could relax during and really enjoy, and that's exactly what we got, thanks in no small part to all your hard work. Particular highlights for us were having a quiet moment looking up at the stars in the outdoor hot tub the evening before the big day, the spectacular views and beautiful trees from the glamping area to look out on the morning of (not to mention during the photos later on), and being able to chat to our families in such a warm and homey space late into the evening as the celebrations wound down. So thank you again for absolutely everything - here's to doing it all again next year!  Bryony and Killian (August 2020)

” Dear Carina, Nicola and the rest of the Rock Farm Team, We wanted to say thank you again for being a superb venue for our wedding in August. Our guests were blown away with the unique and beautiful setting and the day ran so smoothly we could really relax and enjoy it.

It was a pleasure to deal with you in the run up to the big day. Your help with the organisation and answering of our many questions was very much appreciated. We hope to visit again some time.” Katie and Tim (August 2015)

“Hi everyone, we’re now back in England after a lovely honeymoon in Kerry. Just wanted to say a big thank you to you all for making our wedding so special. You’ve all been so helpful since the day we made our first enquiry and the day itself exceeded all expectations. Rock Farm looked amazing with the tents and the marquee up and our guests were really blown away by it all.” Isabelle and Michael August (2014)

Rockfarm is an amazing venue for a wedding that a little different. All our guests commented on how personal the whole wedding weekend was which in large part was down to our venue, Rockfarm. The primary selling point for Rockfarm, other than it’s lovely, helpful staff, is it’s beautiful natural setting. The staff are happy for you to do with it what you want decoration-wise, however the nature surrounding the venue does not need much added to make it beautiful. It has a few different locations within it meaning that over the course of the 2 full days and 3 nights that we spent there, people didn’t get sick of the same space as there was always some variety. This was an important selling point for us. Rockfarm can have a festival feel to it while still having the gravity of a wedding venue. Everyone working there are relaxed, while still professional, which leads to your guests enjoying it as much as possible. Our guests also loved the accommodation available on site – tents, yurts, cabins and the rental houses. We chose to get married outside and there were a few beautiful options of where the ceremony can be. The barn was a great place for the meal and dancing with lots of space. Having the bar included in the main room meant that the crowd wasn’t split up and the dancing continued all through the night. After the barn, you have use of the campsite area which has a kitchen room that held all the guests that were wanting to continue the party through the night. It is difficult to have a wholly sustainable wedding, however choosing Rockfarm as venue goes a long way towards this. All the food provided is supplied by their farm or local producers. Rockfarm has been certified as ‘Gold’ by EcoTourism Ireland and is acknowledged by the Leave No Trace Ireland programme. Showers and bath water are supplied by rainwater and toilets are composting. Initially we were wondering how our guests would take this but everyone loved it! With regards to food, Rockfarm now do their own catering. While they were unable to provide a 'tasting' as such, we attended a Spring festival there and were able to taste what was on offer. The food was very wholesome, delicious and mostly sourced from the farm. Lots of people at the wedding commented on how good the food was. The staff at Rockfarm were extremely attentive in the day before the wedding. They helped to set up and responded to all our various requests. We are truly thankful to the staff over the course of the weekend who worked so hard to help us achieve the wedding that we wanted. In the lead up to the wedding, they met with us for a long meeting to run through the finer details and answered all our queries. Do remember that it is a working farm so there may be a day or two for them to respond to emails which is completely understandable. To Rockfarm’s full and wholehearted credit, they always addressed queries we raised and dealt with them appropriately and generously. We rate this venue 10/10 and highly recommend it. We had the best weekend of our lives! Thanks to Carina, Catherine, Lucio and everyone who worked tirelessly for us all weekend xx

We had our wedding June 2019 at Rock Farm Slane and it was a dream come true in every way. We first stayed at the farm on a short trip in 2018 and fell in love with the magical scenery and tranquility. Leading up to the wedding working with Carina and Catherine was excellent. We planned the event all the way from Washington DC and yet with Carina's help and great communication everything was well organized. They provided templates to organize accommodation and hour-by-hour weekend plans. The weekend of the event, the staff really went above and beyond to execute our vision. We had over 50 people staying at the farm for 2 nights and it was a lot to organize, but from the rehearsal pizza night dinner, to the ceremony, reception, and morning-after brunch, everything went flawlessly. The food was amazing: many people commented that it was the best wedding meal they had ever had. For us, the best part was that we had a venue were we could gather family and friends from all over the world for an entire weekend and really have the opportunity to talk with each and every one of them around a campfire, pizza oven, or on the dance floor. Seeing our friends together in the festival type atmosphere Rock Farm provides was priceless and really sets this place apart from other wedding venues. The hospitality and atmosphere of this place is unbeatable. We highly recommend hosting your next event with them or even coming to stay for a short time. We hope to come back to celebrate our anniversary next year! Thank you so much Carina and all the staff of Rock Farm you really made our dreams come true! -Lara & Andrew
