Myself & my Husband would like to thank all the staff at the Keadeen for making our wedding such a special day. From the first initial contact, you have all been so kind, friendly and professional. Everything was so organised and the food was delicious! Thank you to Sharon & Klaudia for all your help and thank you so much to Anthony. He was so professional and caring and looked after us all so well. We really can't thank you enough. All of our guests had a really great day and complimented the hotel and staff. We will be and have already recommended the Keadeen to our friends and family! Thank all so much again for making our day so special! xx

We held our wedding in the Keadeen hotel in June 2022. I cannot speak highly enough of the hotel and all of its staff members. They provided impeccable customer service from the very first email I sent to the last minutes of our wedding weekend. Nothing was too much hassle for them. The Food was superb on the day, we chose beef and it melted in our mouths. Everyone complemented to the food. The waiting service was fast, efficient and friendly. Sharon, Tina and Claudia works wonders in the office organising everything so efficiently and methodical. And Anthony who runs things on the day, what can I say, he was like family by the end of the wedding. I cant thank the whole team in the Keadeen hotel enough for giving us our perfect wedding day and such wonderful memories. I had no worries on the day as they looked after it all. Everyone who attended our wedding gave us feedback that it was the best wedding they ever attended. Do yourself a the Keadeen hotel, you wont regret it

If I could give more than 5 stars to the Keadeen Hotel, I would! It was the only hotel we visited and we fell in love with it straightaway. We had to move our wedding twice due to the pandemic and the team has been nothing less than amazing, accommodating all our requests and being super supportive. All our guests were also amazed with the place, the professionalism of the staff and also said the food was delicious! THANK YOU for making our day so special, we had a great time and will forever cherish these memories.

Our wedding at the Keadeen was beyond perfect. On the run up to the day Sharon was so responsive to all emails and calls and helped us in any way she should. We had our ceremony in the amphitheatre at the Keadeen and it was such a lovely venue to have our ceremony. We had our drinks reception outside and our reception in the garden room. All our guest commented on how nice the food was and how nice all the staff were. Thanks again to the Keadeen Hotel and all the staff for being so attentive and making out day so perfect!

Our Wedding Day, May 6th 2022 held in The Keadeen Hotel, Newbridge. What can I say other than it was absolutely spectacular from start to finish. Firstly dealing with Klaudia The Wedding Planner who was absolutely so professional, always on the other end of the phone or very quick to reply via email when I needed anything to be confirmed, An absolute pleasure. Anthony and Tina were our wedding coordinators on the day and honestly my day was everything and more because of them. My whole vision came to life with the organization of these two very special members of staff. Nothing was too much, everything ran so smoothly and perfectly. The service was impeccable and this is across the board from every member of staff, from reception, waiting staff, barmen, night porter, kitchen staff everyone were so accommodating, friendly and attentive to us all day. I forgot to bring my son’s beaker to drink out of at our reception dinner and Anthony arranged for a staff member to go to Tesco and get him one that he will drink from. This gesture was over and beyond for us. A beautiful hotel, with stunning food that everyone of our guests raved about, The choice of Roast Beef with Peppercorn Sauce went down an absolute treat. The most Incredible day, with the most amazing memories made here in The Keadeen Hotel. Thank you to everyone for making it’s so special.

We had several dates due to covid and it wasn't a problem for the hotel. The food was beautiful and no shortage of it. Staff so friendly and helpful with everyone not just us. Also beautiful gardens, flowers,grass, lights ect for pictures.

Myself and my husband were absolutely blown away, the staff were so professional, everything was so well organised. A big thanks to Sharon, Tina and the team. The ballroom is gorgeous, it was exactly the wedding I had been dreaming of. All of my guests gushed about it afterwards and still say it was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. I was honestly so happy I booked the Keadeen, it exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend this as a wedding venue. Our wedding was in December but we still got some beautiful pictures in their gardens.

We recently had our wedding reception in the keadeen hotel in November 2021. Staff were extremely professional throughout the day and evening so relaxed and happy and made us feel so special. The bridal suit was just stunning, we couldn’t get over how huge it was it had a massive most comfortable bed, a fabulous dressing room 2 bathrooms and a huge living room area, just amazing!!!! The food is Devine in the keadeen, all our reception food was delicious from the canapés to tea and scones, pink sparkling gin, our dinner was perfectly cooked all our guests commented how fantastic the food was even our first timers who’ve never been to the hotel said they would be back. Also fantastic options for vegetarians we had two at our wedding, so we were trilled to know they had greats options. The gardens and surroundings what can we say we fell in love with the gardens especially for your Photos outstanding. All our quests who stayed over family members thought it was a beautiful hotel which made us even more happier. We wish we could do it all over again in the keadeen hotel it’s a wonderful place, we’ve been back twice already for a family meal we loved having our wedding here, you will not be disappointed for any future brides. We wish you all the luck

The Keadeen Hotel went above and beyond to deliver a flawless wedding reception for us and our guests on the 4th May 2019. From the very beginning of the planning process, the wedding coordinators Aoife, Tina and Sharon couldn’t have been any more helpful or professional with our queries and requests. Our family and friends were absolutely blown away by the quality of the food, the beautiful surroundings and gardens, but most of all-the attentiveness of the staff who went out of their way to accommodate guests in any way they could. We are thrilled that we picked the Keadeen Hotel as our wedding Venue and couldn’t recommend them highly enough.

We love this venue! From the first day we have visited, we knew it was our wedding location. We were looking for a nice bright function room and the Garden Room was just perfect - with big arch windows overlooking the gardens. Our ceremony was a Spiritual Ceremony, was held in the Oak Room and it was just something else! The food on the day was delicious too! The staff couldn't be more friendly and accommodating all our needs. We wish them all the best for the future and we highly recommend The Keadeen Hotel. Kind regards, Georgiana & Graham

The single best decision we made regarding our wedding was the venue. We had our humanist ceremony in the beautiful garden room of The Keadeen Hotel, drinks reception in the Birch room and dinner in the ballroom. The Keadeen Hotel have been in the business of weddings for a long long time and that shows in the way they conduct their business and take care of their clientele. From the very first meeting with them we felt we were in good hands with experienced people. They took care of every minute detail and made sure that we didn't have to worry about a thing. Nothing was too much trouble and they made our wedding day as stress free as possible. I was assigned a member of staff who I could email at any time on the lead up to our big day (which turned out to be a lot) and I was never left waiting for a reply, no question was too big or too small. The peace of mind I got from knowing I could rely on my hotel was priceless. They thought of everything. The feedback that I have gotten from all of my guests has been outstanding. From the food, the staff, the homely atmosphere, the competence I could not fault them in any area. If I could get married again in the morning I would still choose The Keadeen Hotel.

I would highly recommend The Keadeen Hotel to any bride and grooms to be. The hotel is a hidden gem. It is family run and that is evident by the care and attention that you receive. The whole day went perfect. From the time we booked the hotel and our several visits we always received great attention from all the staff. The staff are a credit to the hotel. The food was absolutely amazing, there are no other words, everyone raved about the meal, and everyone's food was piping hot. Needless to say no one went to bed hungry, there was plenty of food throughout the day. The hotel is kept very clean and the grounds are so lovely, so much care goes into the presentation of the hotel. All the reception staff were very helpful particularly Launa, who was very quick getting back to me and very helpful with regards room allocation and changing names. Aoife and Sharon in events were very helpful with the organising of the wedding. But we must thank in particular Tina, she went above and beyond, she was so helpful throughout the whole process, they have so many weddings each week, and we really felt like our wedding was the only wedding taking place in the hotel. We felt very special. Thank you and to all the team there for everything, our day was very special and everyone just had a great day, in lovely surroundings with lovely food.

We couldn’t have been happier with the quality of service we received from the staff of the hotel, from our first inquiry to the day of our wedding staff could not do enough for us. All our guests commented on how delicious the food was throughout the day. The ceremony room , welcome reception room and the wedding reception room were all so beautifully decorated with flowers all supplied by the hotel as part of our package. The bridal suite was spectacular with separate dressing room and sitting room and we were lucky enough to have it for 2 nights so we really got to enjoy it. We could not find a single fault with any aspect of our day and would recommend the Keadeen to any couple looking for a five star quality venue without the five star prices. Kindest regards Laura & Noel

From the get go myself and my husband loved working with the Keadeen planning our wedding all the staff were so helpful and friendly. We went with the Keadeen because i loved the homely feeling you get when you walk true the front door we had been to weddings here before and the service is honestly the best i have ever scene. One thing that the guests who attended our wedding keep saying to us is that the food was amazing from the arrivals to the dinner to the food later that night it tasted amazing and there was so much off it no body was hungry. would highly recommend the Keadeen its five star all the way.

What can I say about the Keadeen Hotel.... fantastic, from the very first visit. We were married in the hotels garden room on the 15th of September this year. The hotel is beautiful, room set up fantastic, every little detail was perfect and nothing was too much trouble. The gardens are so well maintained and so lovely- we did not have to leave the grounds for photographs which is lovely as you have time to mingle with guests. Every single member of staff we met were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Dinner was gorgeous and guests absolutely raved about the food afterwards which was plentlyful. The hotel were so accommodating in everyway. I would not hesitate in recommending the hotel to anyone.

From the moment we picked the Keadeen as our venue, we knew we had made the perfect choice. It was the first and only venue we viewed & we received a warm & homely welcome from the moment we arrived. All the team including Tina, Sharon & Amanda made planning & organising our wedding so easy & fun. Any requests in the lead up and on the day were quickly accommodated & sorted for us without any worry. On our wedding day, we couldn't be happier with how we were looked after & how the day went. Our guests spoke of how great the food & service was & any of them that stayed over, praised their rooms highly & many even said they'd be back! We enjoyed every minute of our special time at the Keadeen on our big day & can't wait to go back again for another wedding as a guest.

We viewed a lot of venues before settling on the Keadeen. In the end we felt they really outweighed all other venues for the following reasons 1.Tina, our wedding coordinator is an absolute gem and really took care of us when we arrived to view the venue, when we brought our parents for the menu tasting and on the day of the wedding. We felt completely at ease. She is such a professional and a fab asset to the hotel I'm sure. 2. The venue itself. If your looking for a venue with a beautiful arrival room, fabulous ballroom, stunning gardens and welcoming atmosphere look no further. Many of our guests have been back to stay at the hotel for a night or weekend post our wedding because they really loved the place. We have no regrets and feel we really found the perfect venue in the Keadeen. 3.Mrs. O'Loughlin, owner of the Keadeen is such a lovely lady.I met her before our big day. Like me, she has a real passion for flowers and created some beautiful flower arrangements for us in the hotel. 4.The food was fabulous. It can be difficult to find good food especially when you need to cater for 130 guests. I previously heard the Keadeen had a reputation for great food. Before the wedding, I went there for Sunday lunch with my sister and the place was packed with locals (always a good sign). The menu tasting was superb and our guests on the day were really happy with their meals so 5 stars for food! So to sum it all up, we feel blessed to have found the Keadeen. Our family and friends were able to relax and enjoy themselves on our special day, as a result we had no worries. I would highly recommend them and hope I get to attend a wedding there soon!

Wow where do i start! From the minute we viewed the keadeen tina won us over. She was fantastic through out the whole wedding process and went beyond and above any expectations i had of her on the day. An when tina was on a day off Amanda or Joe were there to answer any questions. The hotel itself is just amazing ,my day was so relaxed so perfect, the staff were top class the food was the best i ever had and from our 130 guests every single one is still talking about it. If you want a dream wedding put your trust in the keadeen because fantastic is an understatement.even the bar staff were fantastic the babysitter the people who serve the food just brilliant. I would have payed double for the service we received. They are one hotel we would recommend to any one.

From start to finish Cormac was a pleasure to deal with. I organized my wedding in Dublin while living in New York and corresponded frequently with Cormac by email. He always responded very quickly and patiently answered all my questions. On the day of the wedding Cormac went above and beyond his duties as photographer and was so much help. His calm and professional demeanor was amazing. He took so many amazing photos without being unobtrusive. I hear so many couples say they were sick of having photos taken at their weddings but Cormac never got in the way of the fun. Lastly, but by no means least, his photos are amazing! Check out his website... you won't be sorry!
