We booked The Abbey after being let down by another venue and we are delighted that we did, it was one of the best decisions that we have ever made. As this is an exclusive wedding and events venue, the attention is fully focused on tailoring the day to your every need. Arizabeth, Dermot and Aoife are a joy to deal with and go above and beyond. The venue itself is unique and all of our guests were completely blown away by its beauty and history (Aoife knows her stuff!). We could not recommend them enough and wish we could have our day all over again. Thank you.

I definitely recommend this place to anyone planning a wedding. They made us feel so special during all the appointments and the big day. Arizbeth is amazing. From the beginning, she worked with us to make the day as perfect as it could be and took care that everything was running smoothly on the big day. The venue itself is great as well; the rooms are big and spacious. And the bridal suite is like a dream. Our guests praised them the next day. The rest of the building is spacious and beautifully decored. Thank you so much to the team for such an amazing day.

On the wedding day everything was phenomenal, even better than we expected. The Abbey staff were attentive to all the details and are very friendly. Arizbeth is a great professional who was aware of everything and helped us a lot, she was a fundamental piece so that everything went perfect. The only problem is that during the preparation there were things that were not sufficiently clear, such as if the chapel and the dining room tables were going to be decorated with flowers and that we could not go in person the week before to finalize details. These problems I think are due to lack of experience and, may be, the covid situation. However, it is a magnificent and beautiful place that I recommend to any couple.

Attention to virtually every detail was paid to our event by the entire staff. They were warm and welcoming and eager to make sure that our day went perfect. Rooms were sparkling clean and comfortably appointed. We loved the way the venue appeared in our photos and will treasure them for years to come. Thanks!!
