I don't even know where to start with describing how amazing The Mill House is. From our first time viewing we were just in love with it. The wedding day was pure magic. We never wanted the day to end. All the staff are amazing, too many to mention individually! But I will say that Tina - you were fantastic. You listened to what we wanted our day to be and made it happen. Nothing was ever an issue or a hassle. With a smile and a laugh we got everything and more from our day. Niamh, you were so lovely greeting us that morning, helping us in with all our bags and baggage! And your kind words when we were leaving the next day. And all the other staff, the kitchen staff for the amazing food. All the bar staff and waitresses. We felt like we were among friends. The food was out of this world. All the clean plates going back to the kitchen was a good indicator!!! The house and ceremony room was so beautiful. It was the perfect back drop. We cannot say enough good things. We can't wait for the day we get to be guests at another wedding!

Wow, what can I say, this place is amazing. We fell in love with it when we first visited and decided to book it for our big day, ever since then the service from the team at the Millhouse has been exceptional. In the build-up to the wedding they were incredibly efficient and responsive and helped with every aspect of the planning and tried to accommodate all of our requests no matter how unreasonable they seemed! We attended the tasting event before our wedding which was great fun and gave us an insight of how things would be on the day, the food was incredible and the service and attentiveness was first class. On the day the staff ensured that everything ran smoothly and removed all of the stress from us. A massive thank you must go out to all the team but especially Tina and Valerie, our wedding coordinators on the day, who made sure that everything ran like clockwork and that there was nothing that they couldn't do. Everything that could be controlled was controlled, the only thing they couldn't arrange for us was the weather! Even though it rained and snowed everyone still had a fantastic day with comments from our guests ranging from "the most beautiful wedding they have ever been to" to "best wedding ever!" If you are considering having your wedding here we would both say go for it as they will ensure that you have the best day of your life. Thank you for making our day amazing! xxxx

We cannot praise the Millhouse enough. It is truly a magical wedding venue. We knew that we loved it as soon as we saw it but it surpassed every expectation we had. The staff made the planning of the wedding so easy, every email and request was dealt with so promptly and in such a friendly and easy-going manner. There was always someone available to help with any little question we had in the run up to the wedding. During the tasting evening the staff were all so friendly and chatty and I knew that the big day was sure to run smoothly. Since our wedding last week, every single person who attended has been so full of praise for the wonderful staff at the Millhouse. The venue on the day was all we hoped for and more but what really made it so great was the staff. They were so reassuring when I arrived and let me and my bridesmaids up to the beautiful bedrooms to take photos. They were there every step of the way, from telling me when to walk up the aisle to greeting us at the end of the ceremony with a glass of bubbly. Tina was incredibly kind and helpful. We were blown away by her professionalism and thoughtfulness. She remembered everything, even making sure my dad had a table beside the radiator for breakfast the next morning. All of these little touches make the Millhouse a really special place and I can honestly say that we feel so lucky to have been married in that beautiful ceremony room followed by a wonderful party in the main house. The bedrooms are all so full of character and all our guests loved them. The service during the meal was impeccable and lots of guests commented on this. The food was excellent and this was also commented on by so many of the guests.It was great to hear so much positive feedback on this aspect of the day too. I would recommend the Millhouse to anyone without hesitation. If I could give it 10 stars out of 5 I would!

We had our wedding in The Millhouse in November 2018, words cannot express how happy we were with everything. From the moment we went to view the venue we fell in love with it all. The guest rooms are all so beautiful and luxurious all with their own quirky theme, the venue is like something from a fairytale, we were met with the warmest of welcomes and such lovely down to earth honest staff. The food tasting was wonderful and during the whole wedding planning time we always had really quick responses to all of our questions and probably annoying requests! The day couldn’t have gone better, Amanda and the team just blew us Away with their responsiveness, Care, hospitality. We booked the bridal room away from the main house and we had such fun getting ready, the food was out of this world. The care and attention was so professional and it was such a beautiful laid back day and night. The feed back from our guests was phenomenal the food the wine the venue it blew everyone’s minds. We cannot thank the Millhouse enough for making our day so magical and relaxed. We just hope we can return some night to enjoy the same hospitality, believe me brides and grooms this is the place to have the day of your dreams ??

We had our Wedding at The Millhouse on 10th November 2018 we could not fault a single thing. From the moment we viewed the venue we knew that it was a place for us and it did not disappoint. We had a humanist ceremony with Joe Armstrong in the Old Mill, which was so relaxed, Treasa from Petite Fleur provided the amazing flowers for here and also the pavilion she did a fantastic job with our visions, Daniel from DK photography was fantastic so natural and didn’t even know he was there likewise Brian Dowling from House of Ren Films was so professional. We can’t wait to see the end results in the New year!! Every member of staff we dealt with about even the smallest detail was never too small to them. On the day everything went smoothly and even the weather was on our side. Guests praised the food and close friends and family who stayed onsite couldn’t fault the accommodation. Rubix provided the music for the ceremony and after party and the dance floor was never empty. Cake glorious cakes (Anne) made our cake, it was second to none!! If you want somewhere a little bit different and intimate then this is your place. We just wish we could do it all again ????

We got married at The Millhouse in November 2018 and it gives us the greatest pleasure to review and recommend this magical venue and its amazing team behind it. Unfortunately the weather was against us, possibly the worst I've ever seen- but a hurricane was nothing compared to the force that was Tina and Valerie. These ladies went above and beyond to try and keep us all warm and dry and to make our day as amazing as it was. People are still complimenting us on the food and the venue itself. From the admin staff answering phone calls and emails and keeping me in check with reminder emails, to the front line staff on the day you truly are a wonderful team and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Sharon and Neil Kelsh xx

What can we say about The Millhouse? We booked the venue before even seeing it ourselves, as we both live in London. However my sister had been to two weddings there during summer 2017 and was raving about it. We then sent my parents to view the place and they were so impressed with it. Throughout the year of planning the Millhouse were incredibly flexible, letting us pop down to the venue as and when we were over from London. They are super responsive on email which is really helpful when planning from abroad. In the last few weeks before the wedding, they instantly answered our numerous queries. Their way of allowing you to pay for things and be across all of the planning via Britebiz is also really convenient. Over the year of planning, we often had responses from different members of staff, but that did not at all impact the consistency of responses. When it comes to the day itself, which was just last Saturday the 20th of October - I don't know where to start. It was just seamless. Tina ran our day for us and she was across every single element, which allowed both Jaspar and myself to switch off and just enjoy the day. Tina was an ever calming and reassuring force for the whole day. We got married onsite in the stunning mill, which provided exactly the sort of vibe we wanted for our wedding. It was small, and intimate. The Millhouse in general has a lovely feel about it - not too formal, yet not informal. The house itself is a breath taking building as well as the ceremony room, on top of the gorgeous surroundings of the venue, it is the little fine details which took our breath away, such as the lights in the trees which are switched on once darkness falls and how well kept all of the lawns are, you will be really hard pushed to find anywhere which as much character, charm and beauty as what the Millhouse offers. Nearly every guest we spoke to loved the entire day, and many made a point of coming up to us to tell us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to - for a number of reasons - the spectacular venue, the food (we had the delicious BBQ menu which was a nice change from the usual roast dinner at a wedding), and the kind staff. We all felt very well looked after. Tina and the other staff couldn't do enough for us all. They especially managed people with food allergies exceptionally well - my sister and bridesmaid has a lot of foods she sadly cannot eat - and they made sure she had more than enough on offer, preparing her dinner and sides separately as well as her evening food. Upon leaving the next morning the staff made our job of packing up really easy - having taken down all of our decorations etc, ready for us to just to pop them into the cars. All of the bedrooms are beautiful and the beds are very comfortable. If we had the opportunity to do it all again, there is no question, we would choose the Millhouse. Wedding planning can always be stressful, especially when you haven't done it before, so many aspects are left down to chance on the day, but the quality of service from the Millhouse is one thing you can definitely rely on.

We already had our minds made up on another venue when we went to view the Millhouse, we were even thinking why were we bothering to go to the viewing! We turned to each other on the way to the car after our appointment and our minds were both completely changed! The Millhouse blew us away. From the very first meeting nothing was too big an ask. We live in London so planning a wedding from abroad was no easy task but the Millhouse were unbelievable, answering our millions of emails and making everything so simple. They had everything in hand, even when we felt like we didn't! Valerie and Tina are the best in the business and could not do enough for us! The Millhouse is the most beautiful venue, we had the most special, personal ceremony in the beautiful mill, and we were lucky enough with the weather to have our reception drinks outside in such a beautiful setting. We really could not recommend the Millhouse more, they are fantastic!

From the moment we arrived at the Millhouse we fell in love with it. The drive up to it is spectacular and the surrounding grounds with the river running through gives the perfect romantic, natural and rustic setting for a wedding. The house itself is stunning. We loved the décor which is modern and chic; every room has its own personality and uniqueness. You could walk around the house ten times and discover new places and quirks each time. It suited our personalities exactly! We felt all the more at home by the amazing staff. From the first moment we visited the staff were so welcoming, personal and helpful. We planned our wedding in less than 6 months and it was made so easy by all of the Millhouse staff. We were relaxed the entire way through. The wedding day itself was the most incredible day of our lives. We had our ceremony in the Mill which was an idyllic setting for the day we’ve dreamt about for so long. The staff (Tina and Paul especially) took care of everything so we were able to relax and enjoy every minute without a care in the world. We received endless amazing reviews from all our guests, complementing everything from the food (which was absolutely gorgeous) to the décor, grounds and staff. We can’t thank everybody at the Millhouse enough for giving us such an amazing day. We would recommend it to anybody planning a wedding - there’s nowhere like it!

The Millhouse is the most beautiful and unique wedding venue, with lots of amazing photo opportunities! Although the weather was a bit chilly and wet the day of our wedding despite it being summer, this did not matter at all, with the staff, especially Tina, making sure everything went as planned. The team at the Millhouse are so professional and efficient. They thought of absolutely everything to make our day completely stressfree and so enjoyable. Food and service throughout the whole day was superb. I would highly recommend the Millhouse to future couples, every aspect of our whole wedding day was amazing!

I absolutely loved this venue for our wedding day, it is the most beautiful place I’ve seen and coming from a wedding industry job previously, I have seen plenty! The millhouse itself is such a stunning space for the ceremony and personally I preferred that to some of the rooms that other venues offered. The house itself is beautiful. Decorated in a quirky yet stylish manner and there’s something to look at in every corner! The grounds are AMAZING! So many photo opportunities!! Our food was cooked to perfection and all The guests were raving about it! A little thing that got to me was that the main was served while the top table were out getting some photos. (We has been advised to do that because we were running out of time before the starter) we returned to our mains being already on the table after someone called for us which was disappointing. The staff are lovely and very helpful and in general nothing was a problem for them but there was one or two instances that I felt they could be a little more helpful - and I was by no means a demanding bride! All in all though I still think this is the most amazing and special venue in Ireland at the minute and anyone who has their wedding there will be able to have a unique and personal day in beautiful surroundings!

We had our wedding at the Millhouse on 15th August 2018. Words cannot explain how wonderful the venue were not only in the day but from the moment we booked. We fell in love with the venue and the staff at the Millhouse a year and a half before our date. We were having our ceremony onsite and the room at the Millhouse truly is beautiful and had everything we wanted. The charm of the house was perfect for us. It had a luxurious house feel which was perfect for our wedding of 80 guests.  From the time from booking to the big day the staff could not have done more for us. They answered my numerous questions and were a fountain of knowledge. We had our 14 year old daughter at our wedding and the staff and bar man, Paul, were so accommodating arranging to have shleor available for her and even asking her to do a shloer tasting to decide what flavour she would like. The week of our wedding they again were so helpful with last minute questions and helping is set up the venue the day before. They helped with everything including figuring out a rough plan for the day.  The morning of our big day I got ready in the beautiful setting of the main house. We had plenty of room for me and my girls and Tina was on hand to help with anything. The morning ran so smoothly, alot thanks to Tina and the Millhouse staff. The rest of our day continued the same in what could only be described as perfect. We were treated like royalty. We had a number of the bridal party who do not drink and they were catered for so well. We enjoyed every second at what is a stunning venue.  I honestly can't recommend the Millhouse enough.  The venue us beautiful. The house is perfect balance of elegance and luxury,  the gardens and outdoor area make for stunning photos and areas for guests to enjoy, the food all day was incredible and something all our guests complemented!! The staff very second to none. The Millhouse definitely made our day perfect and filled with beautiful memories .

The Millhouse was a dream venue! We were organising our wedding from abroad so it was so important to have the right service. Amanda helped organise everything. She is an absolute darling and will forever be one of my bestos!! She even held up my train on the way into the ceremony room on the big day. I called her at least once a fortnight(!!) and I never once felt like I was asking too much, or my questions were stupid questions (You'd be surprised the random things that pop into your head!). On the day itself(and the prep day before), Tina looked after us. It is totally understandable why Tina is in that job. She is cool, calm and collected, and a total sweetheart. She knows exactly how to deal with brides on one of the most amazing days of their lives(it is also one of the busiest, overwhelming and non-stop days, so you need a serious wing-woman!) The staff are what made it for me. I'm mentioning Amanda and Tina, because they were the two predominant staff members I dealt with, but I have to say all of the staff are all absolutely gorgeous. I felt it on the day, and so so many guests took time to particularly mention the staff. I will never be able to thank them all enough. The venue itself is an absolute stunner, rustic, vintage, industrial, grand, luxurious, in a setting second to none right on the Boyne river with beautifully kept grounds and gardens. The rooms in the main house are all equally stunning. I was worried at first about picking the rooms for my guests, once I saw them, my worries totally dissipated! Each and every room in the house has been meticulously decorated with a unique and quirky style with none of the gimmicks! I was told the owner takes a lot of pride in decorating the rooms, and it 100% shows. The ceremony room has a church-like feel, and while we didn't choose a religious ceremony, I think it had the grandeur we wanted to hold a sincere and beautiful ceremony. The Millhouse will forever hold a place in our hearts, and we will definitely be going back to reminisce on our amazing day. To all of the Millhouse staff, you are the absolute dream team, thank you so so much. Lots of love, The Keanes! :-)

Eoin and I had the most wonderful wedding reception at The Millhouse in June 2018. We simply fell in love with the place from the day we viewed it. The staff were so incredibly friendly and from the very start did everything they could to make our day feel special. On the day itself I got ready onsite (not in the main house) and being able to get ready there from the morning was a lovely touch - it meant all my memories of the day are linked to the venue. Eoin and the groomsmen also came onsite to get photos before the ceremony which was really great as it saved a little time on pictures afterwards. When we arrived back after the ceremony us and our guests were treated so well. Neither of us had to worry/think about anything - the team in The Millhouse are pros and it really shows on the day. The dinner went down a treat - we had so many people raving about the food for weeks after - it was a real standout (alongside the gorgeous backdrop that is!). We couldn't recommend The Millhouse enough. It's only a pity it isn't somewhere we could go back and visit time and time again to relive our wedding day.

We had our wedding in The Millhouse in June 2018. From the moment we stepped inside back in 2016 to view the venue, we knew this was the place for us. We wanted somewhere that we could put our own stamp on, somewhere with different food and the opportunity to have as much of the day outdoors as possible. The Millhouse ticked every box. All our guests have commented on how much they enjoyed the BBQ menu and how much they loved the quirky interior, summery vibe and gorgeous surroundings. The staff couldn't have done more for us, Valerie in particular. We were able to go in the day before and decorate as we pleased, and it was so special to be able to have the whole place to ourselves for the day. We had the best day ever and couldn't recommend The Millhouse highly enough!!

My name is Alice, I got married to my now husband David on the 13th May 2018, in the Millhouse Slane. The first time we visited I knew I wanted to get married here. I loved the atmosphere and the size. It was perfect for what we wanted. We had looked at a few other venues and I couldn’t believe what they were offering for the price in comparison to the other venues we had looked at. We booked it one day after seeing it. Right from the beginning the staff where unbelievably helpful. They have a britebiz online system that outlines everything needed. The tasting event was great fun, we got to meet the staff properly, it really gave us a good idea of how relaxed everybody was. I was pretty organized well in advance so when it came to the day I decided I wasn’t going to be nervous and was going to enjoy my day. The minute we arrived the staff where on it. A room full of sandwiches and fruit awaited us and all the staff ran around helping everyone get the venue set up. I’m usually quite controlling but I decided to let the venue do what they do. I had Val on the day and she was amazing. I was supposed to move to the house before the ceremony to get a 5-minute breather, but I ran late on my makeup and didn’t have time. Val noticed that the room was still full of people and moved everybody out, to give me time to settle my nerves. The whole day went off without a single problem. I didn’t need to know or do anything, the staff told us what was coming next and herded all the people to the different areas at the time needed. We went for the BBQ option and it was delicious. Everybody was talking about it for ages after. Our room was beautiful, and breakfast was delicious. We did a two-night wedding and I’m so happy we did. The next day was so chilled out and again the food was great. Apart from being an amazing venue with amazing food, the biggest plus of getting married in the Millhouse was the staff. I felt like they were family. They constantly asked me if there was anything I needed and usually predicted what I needed before I asked. The bar men for both nights were incredible, really good fun. I felt like our wedding was worth every penny and I would recommend all brides to go and check this venue out. Truly the best day of our lives. Thanks to all the staff at the Millhouse. Alice & Dave

We had an amazing wedding day at the Millhouse. Tina and the whole team couldn't do enough for my now husband and I, and our guests. The food was amazing and that was very important to us

We knew the Millhouse was the place for us from the second we saw it. The setting is amazing, the buildings are so gorgeous, the ceremony room took my breath away. From day one the staff were so helpful. They answered all of our questions and replied to our emails so quickly. They made us feel like we were their priority. Our coordinator Niamh was excellent. She made sure our day ran so smoothly and everything happened as we wanted. The food was so delicious and the service was fantastic. They make you and your guests feel so important and special. We have nothing but excellent things to say about the Millhouse. We would go back there and do it all again in a heartbeat. We highly recommend this venue to everyone.

Amanda and Shauna and the girls in the office are fantastic. They are so understanding, so kind and so helpful. They are professional and so pleasant to deal with. Tina was outstanding. She is a very special person and a credit to the venue. Cathal and Paul blew our guests away with their humour, kindness and friendliness. Robert’s ears probably fell off the morning after our wedding as he had to put up with so much bad singing. He was so patient and very good to us in the resident’s bar. Mary and the girls at breakfast were great. Full of smiles and chat and so lovely to see after a very late night. All of the staff actually - they were all unbelievable. I wish I could thank each person individually. No ask was too big, no problem was unsolved, no issue became a crisis.... and everything done with smiles, laughter and kindness. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to them all! The Millhouse is a super special venue in so many ways!

Dear Staff of The Millhouse, Myself and Denise would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you did in helping us to get married. It was a wonderful day last Friday in your venue. Our family and friends thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful setting, delicious food and the great service that your team provided. We received glowing feedback from our guests and we couldn't be happier. You made everything so easy for us, from Shauna who replied to our countless emails and always brought us back to earth when we felt the pressure rising. From Tina and the rest of the group who greeted us and our guests with huge smiles and were on hand to look after everybody. They made everybody feel relaxed throughout the whole day and where still smiling on check out. To the Bar staff who were a breath of fresh air to talk to on the day and into the night. Full of energy and always present to the final minute of the night. And the chefs who provided us all with a delicious meal that everybody enjoyed. Also we would like to thank the room service staff who turned the rooms over in an exceptional manner. Allowing myself and the groomsmen to get ready for the ceremony with comfort. A big thank you to Niamh who kept everything running smoothly from start to finish. We really appreciate the effort undertaken and the success of the day shows how hard she worked. With everybody from the cleaners, chefs, house staff, waitresses, bar staff and management all working as a team. It was a truly memorable day for all of us. Regards; Stephen & Denise

Tina from the Millhouse looked after us on our big day and she made it all so special for us. Her attention to detail, calm & caring nature as well as her positive attitude made my whole experience with the Millhouse 10 times better! Understandably, there were times throughout the morning itself when the nerves got the better of me and Tina was so conscious of that. She did everything in her power to put me at ease, be it giving me a cup of green tea (which she knew I loved) or sending me off in to a room on my own with my mum to have a breather when things were getting hectic, she was just on top of everything and I couldn't have asked for anyone better! I knew The Millhouse was the venue I wanted to get married in from the second I saw it. It's beautiful, intimate, rustic ceremony room made for an incredibly personal & romantic wedding, not to mention the incredibly charming and quirky manor house less than 30 seconds away. The whole day from start to finish was just perfect, and my husband & I couldn't have been happier with The Millhouse as our wedding venue. We were proud to show it off and felt the whole vibe & character of The Millhouse represented us as a couple so perfectly! Thank you to all in The Millhouse for your help from start to finish, we had the most magical day and are still beaming from it! xx Manuel & Karen xx

They were excellent to deal with and made the day perfect. We booked the double extension and it gave us so much space and stayed super warm even though it was freezing outside. Couldn't recommend them enough.

These guys know how to put on a great party!! We loved every minute of our day. The Millhouse team are really wonderful. The ceremony space was perfect for our humanist ceremony filled with all our family and friends it is a wonderful space to get married in. The grounds are gorgeous for photos, with so many good photo opportunities. We were lucky to have a dry day for our November wedding but even on a rainy day it looks great. We had visited several times before the big day and the staff are always busy maintaining and upgrading the place. The house is fab for the drinks reception and pavillion is perfect for dinner and dancing. The layout of the pavilion is perfect for a party having the bar close to the dance floor keeps the dance floor full :-) The food & drink was good and plentiful. Thank you to all the millhouse team x Laura + Chris

Thank you to all the staff at the Mill house Co Meath,everything even from early in the morning when all the brides were getting made up and ready for the ceremony to the ceremony room the function room the bedrooms and all the service and attention that we all received was quite outstanding. The reception in the pavilion is a fantastic experience and topped off by fabulous food and service performed with military precision an excellent display of service.During the year and the lead up to the wedding we called into the venue when they have open days and even when we did a decor drop 2 days before nothing, even the most trivial request or question was taken and dealt with in a serious and professional manner.We are so thankful to everyone at the Millhouse for making my Daughter's wedding a complete success.Thank you Valerie you were a treasure.
Response from The Millhouse
Hi Irvine, Many thanks for this lovely review. It means a lot to us to get one from the mother of the bride- and really has put a smile on our faces knowing that you got to see your daughter enjoy the most special day of her life. I hope that you all enjoyed the day and made some beautiful memories. The Millhouse Team

I couldn't recommend the Millhouse more! We are living in Canada and it was really important for us to have a venue that made our lives easier and knew exactly what they were doing and the Millhouse was perfect! The staff were incredibly helpful, Valerie and Tina were lifesavers on the day. All the staff were incredibly friendly nothing was too big or too small for them! A special thank you to the staff member that found me a spare pair of flip flops when my flats got lost in the shuffle and the lovely bartender! The food was delicious, as we were in Canada they were nice enough to set up a special tasting with my sister and her husband and we were not disappointed with the food on the day! They made a lovely lemonade for the kids, steak and salmon for the adults and the arugula bean salad was my favourite! The Millhouse is also a stunning venue! We had our ceremony in the Mill which was just the right size, small and intimate. The grounds are excellently maintained (congratulations to the hard working staff). There is endless opportunities for photos by the river, the beautiful mansion, the unusual old buildings and the twinkling lights at night. With the Millhouse you do not need to worry about spending money on decorations as they would only distract from how nice the venue already is! The rooms are amazing as well, each room has its own charm. We were in the Soft Winter that was the perfect location for us as we had some space from the other guests and the stairs to the room were right by the pavilion so I could easily pop up to the room when needed. Overall the Millhouse was excellent and we couldn't say a bad word about them! Thank you so much for all of your hard work on our special day!

We fell in love with The Millhouse the minute we drove in, and knew it was the venue for us. As there was another wedding the day before ours, we didn't get to decorate the venue ourselves, but Tina and team did an amazing job, and everything was perfect and just as I wanted on the day. The ceremony room is my favourite with the unique style and exposed brick, and it barely needed anything done to it to make it as beautiful a room as you would find. The setting with the river (where we got our photos), fairy lights, pavilion room for the reception was all perfect. Tina was great to deal with, and so helpful in the days before and on the day, anything that needed sorting on the day was sorted without bothering us once, the day flowed beautifully. The food was delicious, and we have had amazing feedback from the guests. The one thing we would say was there wasn't one single point of contact assigned to us, so if we had any queries in the months running up to the day we dealt with team members in the office, who were not the same staff we met when we visited the venue. However we didn't see any impact of that on the day itself, it went amazingly well and I would highly recommend the venue!

The MillHouse was everything we hoped for and more. For us, The MillHouse is a truly special venue which embraces its aspect overlooking the river Boyne together with the historical mill to create a relaxed, beautiful and private setting for weddings. The decor in the house is quirky, modern and just posh enough, and the new lawn and orangery provide outdoor spaces and sun traps galore. Tina was warm, friendly, capable and professional keeping the show on the road and anticipating our every necessity for the day. Given she does this day in and day out, I don't know how she does it but she makes it feel like your special day. Paul the barman was easy to deal with and attentive to our requests on the day, great guy. We received a lot of compliments from our guests on both the venue and the food. We choose the 'Silvermoon' package and the food was 'outrageous' in the words of one of our guests. All our guests had a great sleep and breakfast was delicious! With regards to improvements, - I would suggest to improve the pre-wedding organisation software (e.g. with specified sections rather than an unstructured document) - Reduce the automated email reminders, particularly when there has been inward contact in the interim. - Sometimes the wording in emails and documents appeared more inflexible that it transpired to be by phone or in person. - A designated wedding advisor from the team would also be a good addition, though I appreciate this is hard to accommodate with a small team. - A greater number of single occupancy rates would be nice for guests in that position. These small items aside, we had the wedding of our lives and if you're considering the Millhouse, we would whole-heartedly say "go for it". Also, it never rains in Slane!

We found the staff and service at the Millhouse to be second to none. The planning and help that we received in the build up was excellent and really reassuring. I particularly liked the online system they use, it made everything really transparent. On the day Aidan, Tina and the rest of the staff couldn't have been more attentive or made us feel more at ease. Paul, the Bar Manager was kept busy throughout the day ! He was extremely welcoming to all of our guests and made sure everyone was well looked after. The whole day flowed beautifully thanks to their professionalism. The food was amazing and our guests raved about it! Big thanks to the Millhouse for helping to make our day so special and memorable.

I cannot recommend this venue enough!! We are still on an absolute high after our wedding day, we both agree if we were to do it again we wouldn't change one thing about the day!! From the moment we booked our wedding at The Millhouse it was clear that the staff are highly professional and talented at their jobs. All the details are organised through a website- I really liked this as I could add details in my own time and edit them as I pleased. There were 220 people at our wedding and the ceremony room accommodated everyone. We added the three tier marquee on to the pavilion (Boyne Valley Marquees) and there was loads of space- there was even plenty of space for the 6 piece band. We chose the BBQ menu and added a soup starter. Our guests had steak and salmon and there was plenty of seconds, thirds and even fourths for some guests! The wine was free flowing and everyone complemented the standard of the food. The vegetarian options were delicious also. While there were rooms for our immediate family, all our friends and relatives stayed in accommodation nearby. We booked Micky Dillon's taxi vans and everyone was delighted with the service. The icing on the cake was the service. We cannot commend the staff enough. Amanda and Shauna were amazing to deal with during the organisation stage. Aidan went above and beyond his call of duty on the day, the guests even knew his name by the end of the day! He met me at the door, ensured all was ok, kept everyone on time and calm. Aidan even accommodated one of our guests to meet the local priest to find out about mass the next morning!! (thank you!) Paul, the bar manager ensured there was always a fresh bottle of wine on the tables and that the bride and groom were looked after. He even ensured the groom had his favourite beer on the day. Tina was fantastic the day I dropped the decor and went through every detail with me- I think this is why I was so calm on the day. There were many other staff members who I didn't catch names, but each and every one of them were so friendly and seemed to love their jobs. We are so happy that we chose The Millhouse for our wedding day. We have so many wonderful memories. Our guests commented that they felt relaxed and really felt taken care of on the day- this was always our priority. If you have booked this venue, you already know how beautiful it is and the attention to detail is second to none. My advice is to enjoy every moment, as we did- you and all your guests will be well looked after. Thank you, Claire & Anthony

James is from Slane and had grown up on the banks of the Boyne. I got to know The Millhouse from passing on the way to visit James's mum. Almost 4 years later when we decided to get married we couldn't have choosen a more perfect place for the celebration. Since the first day we met Tina and Aidan they made us feel so welcome and sure about everything. We spent a year planning and organising and every time we needed help or advice the lovely staff in the office were there for us. The day happened without one single scratch. The food was amazing, the whole staff had big smiles on their faces. Now we have in our hearts the memories of the most special day of our lives. Thanks, The Millhouse. You were outstanding!

The Millhouse is a truly spectacular venue - blessed with absolutely beautiful buildings and grounds, but also the most amazing staff. You won't really fully appreciate this until your wedding day, when absolutely everything you can think of, and lots more you couldn't, have already been quietly taken care of. We had our ceremony in the Old Mill. Its unusual enough to find a venue with a separate indoor ceremony and dining space, but to find one with two stunning rooms is almost unheard of. (They can also do outdoor ceremonies in the orchard.) As the first part of the venue that our guests saw, it completely blew them away, and it gave our ceremony a charm and intimacy that we can't imagine being equaled somewhere else. The staff - all the staff, from the event coordinators to the waiters and kitchen staff to the night porter - were amazing from start to finish. Quick to respond and happy to help with every query and request, they impressed not just us but all our guests on the day itself. Their skill and charm meant that every aspect of our day flowed effortlessly. The quality of the food was exceptional, not just at the top table, but for all our guests. The menu is wide and diverse, and every dietary requirement was easily taken care of. When guests go out of their way to compliment the quality of the meal, that speaks for itself. The rooms in the house are all beautiful, and each one unique in it's own way. Additional accommodation is being added on site, and there are plenty of hotels and B&Bs nearby. The entire venue is incredibly picturesque, and our photos - all taken on site - are stunning, and perfectly capture the wonderful memories we both have of our day. We'll both always be incredibly grateful to have had our wedding in such an amazing place.

As a couple from Limerick with no ties to Meath whatsoever, our guests could not fathom why we were making them trek the whole way to Slane for our wedding day... Until they arrived at The Millhouse. It has been a month since our wedding day and everybody is still raving about how wonderful they whole day was. From the moment we arrived at The Millhouse, we knew this is where we wanted to get married. The grounds are just stunning with so many different places for photo opportunities. The Old Mill is so original and different, the perfect setting for a unique wedding ceremony. The house itself is so homely and cosy that you genuinely feel at home. And the Pavillion, with all of it's beautiful decor and fairy lights, has a magical feel to it. The only thing that topped The beautiful Millhouse itself - was the staff. Aidan and Tina made sure that our day went off without a hitch from the moment we arrived that morning. So professional and on the ball, they didn't miss a beat. That's not to mention the help and support we received from all of the team while planning our big day, they couldn't have been better. I couldn't recommend this venue any more, they are nothing short of superb. Thank you so much to all at The Millhouse, you made our day truly amazing x

We booked The Millhouse after viewing only one other location. It was exactly what we were looking for - intimate, private venue where the service and experience was personal and flexible. From the beginning, we were impressed with the location - though over the 11 months from booking to the wedding, The Millhouse had been enhanced with outdoor building and restoration. As a venue, we had ample communication and understanding from the staff in the preparation. The staff in The Millhouse listened and agreed to our preparation - demonstrating their ability to be unique and flexible with each couple. On the day, Tina and Aidan were a total hit - there was nothing that was too big or any problem for them. We were really grateful for the care and attention that we received - it definitely made our day. Both were unbelievably professional. I could not recommend The Millhouse any higher.

We were looking for a rustic/romantic style wedding, quality food, the potential to have an outdoor drinks reception, and a exclusive venue for only our wedding guests.We found The Millhouse to be perfect! We had the most amazing day and The Millhouse made it all happen with their wonderful staff, venue and food. The Venue The first attraction to us was the wonderful outdoor area looking out on the Boyne and beautiful countryside.We ended up spending our drinks reception outside which was just such a bonus on the day. The pavilion holds 150, we had 147 and it was a bit of a tight squeeze. There is the option to get an extension however. Another thing to consider is the lack of accommodation on the grounds. There are 15/16 rooms so we had a bit of hassle trying to get people sorted but I think we were unlucky as there was 3 weddings in Slane on the day of our wedding. Just book accommodation early if it is a Summer wedding on a Sat or any other busy times! There was also 1/2 of the guest rooms that I thought were below the expected standard of the venue but all in all most of the guest rooms are lovely. The people The staff were extremely helpful, professional and polite throughout. They directed the day perfectly with enthusiasm and fun. My husband and I could not have asked for more. They looked after us so well and took it all in their stride . The Food We went for the Silvermoon Package it was absolutely delicious. Our guests all complimented the food! I had the soup, steak and cheesecake! It was all amazing! It was definitely expensive compared to some hotel prices but we wouldn't change it.. Such a great venue!

The Millhouse team created the most magical and incredible wedding day for my husband Chris and I. From the moment Chris and I arrived at the Millhouse, the whole team literally went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. The team were fabulous and Aidan was INCREDIBLE, he was so organised and so attentive to both of us throughout the day. The whole day went so smoothly and everything was carried out with such precision. We can honesting say it was the best day of our lives. There was such a beautiful ambience at the Millhouse and all of our guests raved about the food, it was really delicious. We can't thank them enough for creating the most beautiful environment for us and our guests, it was absolute perfection. Thanks again Jen & Chris ????

Dear weddings team- Amanda, Aidan, Shauna, Tina, ( Sorry If we're missing anyone) as you are all AMAZING! We could not recommend The Millhouse as wedding venue more highly. You guys were so amazing from booking right through the the day itself. The guests are still raving about the venue/Staff/food/accommodation and atmosphere. 5 stars isn't enough we wish we could give more. The weddings team at the millhouse are so amazing at looking after the bride and groom, they anticipated every move of the day and made sure everything ran to schedule as one guest put it 'There wasn't a hair out of place' we had the most amazing day and urge any couples looking for a unique wedding experience to book a viewing, you won't be disappointed. Thank you so much guys you are definitely Irelands TOP wedding venue!!

On the 3rd of November 2016, we arrived to the Millhouse for our wedding day. From the very first time we visited the Millhouse to the day of our wedding we encountered the most helpful and professional staff. We had a winter wedding and could never have imagined how beautiful the venue would look at this time of year. We had the best of both worlds. The mill where we married was beautifully decorated and very welcoming. The house was extremely cosy with fires lit and candles everywhere. The pavillion was beautiful in the crisp winter night. The grounds were like something you would see in the movies!! From first glance you could see how well managed the grounds are, beautiful for day light pictures! The real treat was in the evening, pictures at dusk and when darkness fell are some of the most beautiful pictures of our wedding day. The trees were draped in the most beautiful lights. The meal was enjoyed by everyone and the service was excellent. The rooms for guests and the bridal party were elegant. So much more I could commend!
Response from The Millhouse
Hi Laura & Stephen, Wow, thank you for the lovely review. So glad to hear how much you enjoyed your winter wedding with us. It was our pleasure to have you all here to celebrate your special day. I will be sure to pass on your kind words to all members of the team, as we all work hard to ensure you have the best day ever. Love from all The Millhouse Team

Absolutely fabulous day from start to finish. All the staff were friendly and professional and accommodating in every way.

We absolutely loved everything about The Millhouse; from our first viewing, to meeting the team, to our tasting night and to one of the most magical days of our lives! Our wedding day could not have went any better. The staff are so professional and helpful, and Aidan (the coordinator) is a force to be reckoned with in every good way possible. The grounds, the old mill and the house are truly stunning and we are over the moon with our wedding photos! (I am happy to supply some for pictures so you can get an idea!) For couples who are looking for something a little different and who want to wow their guests, I could not recommend The Millhouse highly enough. So much thanks to all the team!

Everything was wonderful. The staff was so helpful and friendly and our friends and family would not stop talking about the beauty of the location and the service. The bartenders are amazing, they knew what everyone was drinking before they even ordered! One thing I'd change: our cake was amazing but none of our guests seemed to have any? They were not aware when the cake was cut that it was served on platters for people to pick from, so I'm afraid a lot went to waste. Would have been nice if it had been more announced and made available
Response from The Millhouse
Hi Beatriz, Thank you so much for the kind words. Our barmen are top class, so lovely to hear them get recognized for the hard work they put in. In regards to the cake, I am truly sorry to hear that and it will be something that will be looked at to see how we can ensue this never happens again. From all The Millhouse Team

Thank you so much to Aidan, Tina and all the team at the Millhouse for such a special and unforgettable wedding day last September. They are all such friendly, helpful and caring people and are just brilliant at what they do. We felt so well looked after, as did our family and friends and we didn't have to worry about a single thing the entire day. The venue was just perfect and allowed us to have the fun, simple and relaxed wedding that was just 'us' to a tee. It was everything we were hoping for and more and our guests are still talking about what a wonderful day it was! Thank you all! Rachel & Declan x

My husband and I live abroad and booked the Millhouse without ever visiting it (or any other venue) and so really understand the weight of a good review. For anyone else in this situation, the venue is represented very accurately online and we were delighted when we finally got to visit. From start to finish Tina, Amanda and the entire team at the Millhouse were fantastic, incredibly easy to deal with and very responsive to our emails which was so important to us. The venue also use Britebiz (online event management software) which is an excellent way of checking that everyone’s on the same page when it comes to number of guests, table plans, room allocation, choice of menu, day programme etc etc etc. They also provided recommendations for a photographer, florist, marquee supplier and late night bus driver who all turned out to be brilliant. Tina and Aidan were so attentive on our wedding day, thought of everything and were always one step ahead of us…my dad was nervous before the ceremony and Aidan even stood in as my fiancé to show him how to give me away…and then came to the church with us to make sure we were all on cue going up the aisle! Everything went perfectly, the sun came out and we really couldn’t have hoped for more. All our guests commented on the generous quantity and quality of the food which is no mean feat when you’re serving 170 people. The Millhouse is obviously a well-oiled machine and run very professionally but is also relaxed as a venue and feels like your home for the day which is exactly what we wanted. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making our wedding day so special and taking the stress out of organising it all from abroad! We are so happy with how it all went and wouldn’t change a thing.

The friendliness and professionalism of the staff as well as the quality of food/drink and stunning surroundings makes this place a truly magical one.

When we got engaged in June 2014 and began the search for our perfect wedding venue, we knew from the outset that we wanted something a little different… After trawling through a host of wedding websites in search of just that I stumbled across The Millhouse. The excitement was instant. Now THIS was exactly what we were looking for. From the beautiful Old Mill to the the character laden Millhouse and the stunningly quirky Pavilion, I couldn’t believe such a venue existed just a few miles from our home in Dublin. I told my husband-to-be little about the place as I was so eager to view it and so hopeful that it wouldn’t disappoint in reality. We had been discussing where to have our cermony and after seeing The Mill online I knew if we booked it I couldn’t get married anywhere but there. As we rambled up the drive way one afternoon in August I knew I already that this was the venue I wanted. Thankfully as we wandered around the Mill, my husband to be squeezed my hand and said “If we’re lucky enough to have our wedding here, there’s nowhere alse we could have the ceremony.” After meeting with the lovely staff and discussing dates and packages we booked our wedding for July 22nd 2016. We were incredibly lucky that when we booked our Friday wedding we were also able to book to stay the night before. This was very important to us as we wanted to have a predinner celebration with family and close friends in anticipation of the big day. We also wanted to have time to decorate the venue-though the staff at The Millhouse are pros in this department! From the moment we arrived at The Millhouse that Thursday afternoon we were made to feel like the house was ours. We were given the space and respect to do what we wanted but also the care and attention to ensure we were happy, relaxed and ready for our big day. Everything ran so comfortably and seamlessly. Nothing was too much trouble. Aidan was a Godsend, offering advice on where to put décor, making sure everyone was comfortable and relaxed, answering my million questions, even ironing two party flags we were hanging in the Pavilion! And that was only the day before. Tina was also fantastic-she was my go to girl on the morning of the wedding and was so efficient and professional about everything. From morning through to evening, and into the late night the whole show ran like clockwork thanks to the fantastic staff at the Millhouse. We didn’t have to think or worry about anything, just really let loose and enjoy ourselves. I can’t recommend the Millhouse enough. If you want a venue full of character, history, quirkiness and fabulous, caring and professional staff you really shouldn’t look any further. Thank you for making our day what it was- full of love, so much laughter and one hell of a party!

From the first time we viewed The Millhouse- we wanted to book straight away. We loved the setting by the river Boyne and inparticular as we were having a civil cermoney- The Old Mill was a beautiful setting for it. Staff are very friendly and responsive to emails and queries. We owe Tina hugely as the day before the wedding she stayed late with us helping us decorate- we really appreciated this. On the day, Aidan, Donal and Tina were just brilliant. Couldnt of asked for anymore. From the two lads carrying my dress to making sure all our guests were ok, they were brilliant. Food was delicious and we had the best day ever. Would defiantly recommend here.

The Millhouse were great to deal with, they have thought of everything, take each couple down for a night of tastings and communicate well about the plans esp closer to the day when things get a bit hectic! On the day I couldn't find fault with the venue, our co ordinator was fantastic, nothing was too much bother and everything so well taken care of behind the scenes. We were kept up to date all date and they brought the drinks reception outside last minute after the ceremony as the weather was lovely. Our wedding day went so smoothly and we and our guests loved the whole day.

Astounding service, staff food and venue! I have written a comprehensive review on trip advisor which for some reason I can't copy and paste! These guys are true professionals. Really cannot recommend any higher. We had without doubt the best day of our lives and all of our guests are raving about it. I'd say if you like the venue relaxed atmosphere just book it..... And then leave it up to the pros to do what they do best!! Best decision we made regarding our whole day was choosing this venue

We couldnt recommend The Millhouse highly enough. Our guests are still raving about the beautiful house and grounds, food etc which is plain for all to see but what you dont see is the quick response to your emails about changing your seating plan at the last minute or taking out the stage so we could sit among our guests or the warm friendly greeting of every staff member you meet who make you feel like they are genuinely happy you are there in their premises! Wonderful venue full of wonderful expert staff who make it a wonderful day.

We had our wedding and ceremony at the Millhouse in November. All at the Millhouse are great to deal with through the whole process; Aidan and Tina in particular who looked after us on the day of the wedding were absolutely fantastic. The Millhouse know how to do weddings; they are so experienced, anticipating things you wouldn't think of to make sure everything runs smoothly. We had a really sunny bright day amazingly - cold though but the House and Pavilion provide cosy respite from such winter weather! The open fires in the House and the fairly light ceiling in the Pavilion all add to the effect, especially after dark. The Mill, also, as a space for a wedding ceremony is really stunning and was a real selling point for us. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Millhouse to anyone thinking of choosing it as a wedding venue.

we just celebrated our wedding in the Millhouse Slane, 23 Oct 2015. It was an amazing weekend, and there was nothing the staff at the Millhouse could not do for us. They are extremely flexible, friendly and make you feel like you are celebrating your wedding in your own home! it is a beautiful , relaxed venue. Tina and Aidan were running the show on Friday and they run a very tight ship , there is nothing they dont think of, and were great for guiding us through the day to keep myself and my husband in check and on schedule. The rooms are all individual style and vary slightly in price, I think they are reasonable enough in terms of value for money. There is one room that is classed as a family room "Golden Afternoon" but it is a shared bathroom with an attached room, that is just something to be aware of when placing your guests in these rooms. Other than that, this venue is ideal for any couple who want a rustic , relaxed, intimate wedding. We didnt want to leave when checking out the next day. Great weekend had by all!!!!

The Millhouse is an amazing and unique wedding venue by the River Boyne in Slane. We visited several venues but knew the Millhouse was the one for us immediately. The staff were so welcoming. They really went out of their way to ensure that we had the best day of our lives. They were so friendly to our guests, remembering our families names and helping us to decorate the Millhouse before the wedding. Aidan, our fantastic coordinator ensured that the day ran smoothly. He was so efficient and patient! The food was delicious! Our guests had a great day, and were so complimentary of the venue and its staff. We cannot recommend The Millhouse enough and will be forever thankful for our lovely day.

Absolute fantastic venue, with food and staff to match! Staff could not do enough to help on the day and made the day run as smoothly as it did! Food was fantastic and there wasn't a crumb left on anyone's plates! Highly recommend this venue for a relaxed enjoyable day!!

I fell in love with the venue the minute I saw it. The elegant yet simple white decor, the beautiful old Mill where we held our civil ceremony, the gardens and grounds perfect for photos and of course the stunning riverside setting and the location itself, being close to Dublin made this the perfect venue for us. The staff were so helpful especially Aidan, Tina and Emma. They made the day run seamlessly and always ensured we were topped up with Prosecco! The food was the best wedding food we've ever had, with most of our guests agreeing. The cosy Pavillion room with the bar and band in one place meant the atmosphere was electric and the dance floor was packed all night long! the bedrooms are beautiful and it's such a lovely feeling knowing you have the house to yourself. I think this is one of the best wedding venues in Ireland in my humble opinion! I will be recommending them to all my engaged friends.

Absolutely stunning venue. The staff are wonderful and made our day run amazingly and completely stress free! Particular thanks to Aidan, Tina and Amanda. Aidan goes to every length to make sure the day runs on time and smoothly. I have no hesitation in recommending The Millhouse to any couple!

I can't thank the staff of the Millhouse enough for ensuring we had a fantastic day. We immediately feel in love with the venue on our first visit. As two designers we were struggling to find a venue that reflected us as a couple and ticked all the boxes for our big day. Even on a grey wet day it out shone every venue we'd seen. The dining/ reception room's white décor means it is easily ad adaptable to anyone's colour theme but also it needs very little decoration, ideal for those tight on budget or a lack of ideas. the Millhouse also have an abundance of leftover props/ decorations you can use. We don't live in Ireland but found we had nothing to worry about. The Admin staff are very responsive to any queries you may have organising a wedding abroad .Several of our guest flew in the day of the wedding and we were able to accommodate them by ensuring early check in, allowing them to get dressed at the venue and we were easily able to order them a few sandwiches to keep them going until the wedding kicked off. On the actual day the staff exceed all our expectations, allowing us to enjoy every minute of the day. The serving and clearing of the dinner was seamless. The food at the tasting and on the day didn't let us down. All our guest raved about the food and the staff. Both Aidan & Tina who we'd not met until the day before our wedding ensured the day ran perfectly, making us feel at ease which I think every couple needs on the day. They where on hand nearly every second of the day giving advice and solutions when needed as no matter how organised you are there will be something you forget about. There were of course a few last minute panics by the groom who may or may not forgot a few things ( I heard after the wedding) but the staff helped him to ensure the day ran smoothly. Their experience is something we both greatly appreciated on the day and would give them both 5 stars. If we could do it all over again I would have no doubt in choosing the Millhouse.

As mother of the groom I was, naturally, very anxious that everything went well for the couple as they had put a lot of work into organising their "big" day. From the moment we checked into the Millhouse on Thursday afternoon until we left on Saturday morning everything was just perfect. The staff were very friendly and very efficient, nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms are very different from each other and full of character. The wedding breakfast was first class and all of the other meals we had were top class. All needs were catered for without any fuss, Vegetarian, Vegan, Dairy Free and Gluten Free. I would have no hesitation in recommending the Millhouse to anyone wishing to have a wedding there or just a short break.

It was the perfect venue for the type of wedding we wanted, as we have three kids it was important to us that they could run around and be safe without being confined to a room. I loved the relaxed vibe to the place as we didn't want things to be too formal and the choice of a BBQ dinner was perfect. Aidan, the wedding planner on the day really was amazing, he looked after everything from decorating the venue to our requirements and making sure I was ready, organised and out on time and he always had plenty of tissues to hand for when the pre ceremony nerves kicked in!

My husband and I knew within 5 minutes of arriving at The Millhouse on our initial viewing that it was where we wanted to have our wedding reception. We were having a smaller wedding with family and close friends, and wanted an intimate setting that reflected on our type of wedding. We love 'vintage' so it was perfect for us! Everything was wonderful from start to finish. It was so unique and our guests still talk about The Millhouse and how gorgeous and different it was. The service was amazing and the staff are so friendly and accommodating and mixed so well with us and our guests, in particular Emma , Tina and Ger. They couldn't have done enough for us. The food was delicious and service was so prompt on the day. The breakfast the next morning was amazing; its lovely to sit in your own 'kitchen' and be able to chat to your guests about the previous day in a relaxed atmosphere. I even went to breakfast in my pjs :-) I cannot recommend The Millhouse highly enough, It was well worth every single penny, and I wouldn't change a thing about our Big Day. It will always hold a special place in our hearts :-) Fiona and Paul Marron x

We had an amazing wedding day all thanks to the professionalism of the staff, Aiden our co-ordinator was so organised and made everything flow so smoothly. He kept any stress away from usand made sure we were well looked after all day. Nothing was too much, but he did it with a genuine, friendly, manner and never made it seem like just a job. All the staff were amazing, thorough and friendly. We wanted for nothing. Ger and Tina especially kept things running like clockwork, and gave us a great laugh too! The venue is perfect for creating your own day on a blank canvas, that happens to be a beautiful setting with an alternative approach for your special day.

The Millhouse is a fantastic venue for so many reasons... The venue itself is absolutely stunning and if you get the weather, it's so brilliant for everyone to be able to mingle inside and out. The staff are phenomenal, from the moment we booked, through to the next day when they kept a fry for my oversleeping husband and I!! They completely put your mind at ease and make sure that everything goes without a hitch. The food (we chose the BBQ option) was delicious, our guests were full of compliments. Overall, I'm soooo glad we chose this venue, it made our day so special!

We had an amazing wedding day at the Millhouse. The setting is beautiful, the day ran really smoothly despite torrential rain. The food was delicious, couldn't recommend it more. The staff were really accommodating and we kept the party going late into the night. If I would have one comment it would be that when we first viewed the venue while we loved the setting we felt that a cup of tea and a bit more time spent with couples wouldn't go astray. Delighted we went ahead!

There are no words needed to express how amazing The Millhouse is!!!!!!! It sells itself! We couldn't have chosen a better venue! Loved everything about it. The staff are amazing (especially Aidan, Tina and Emma). Everyone at the Millhouse are lovely, thoughtful and unbelievably accomodating!!!!! The amount of amazing comments our guests made about the food was unbelievable. Our day was perfect for us and we have to say the Millhouse was pretty much the reason it was so good. Cannot recommend highly enough.

The Millhouse is the perfect venue to have the wedding that you really want. It's elegant and stylish but really laid back. It was the perfect place for us to add all the touches that we wanted and make it really personal to us. The team in the Millhouse were amazing. There was nothing too much trouble and were always there to help. I thought I wasn't doing enough organising in the run up to the wedding as it was all going too easy and smoothly but it's because they have everything under control for you. Total pros. All our guests couldn't stop raving about the food and the venue and because they were happy, we were happy. I couldn't fault a thing, it really was more than we had hoped for.

We fell in love with the Milhouse the first time we saw it. It was exactly what we were looking for. The staff on the day went above and beyond to ensure our day went off without a hitch. The venue is magical, the staff attentive and the food......people still ask us about the sausages!

This was a lovely venue to stay in, with friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. The meal was great, and catered well for my vegetarian diet. There was ample space for kids to play, and comfy couches for lounging. A great multi purpose room just beside the main building was used for some entertainment, and was really nice too. Now I just need some more friends to get married there...

From the very first day we went to look at The Millhouse, we knew it was the one!! From the rustic, homely, kitch style to the location and friendly atmosphere - it was perfect for us! We met Eve on that first day and immediately hit it off. It was so great to meet someone so genuine and friendly from the get go! We organised the majority of our wedding from Canada and Eve was terrific - replying sometimes within minutes. She just went above and beyond all of our expectations. When the big day came, Eve, Tina and Geraldine along with all of the staff made sure that our day ran smoothly, helping with the setup of the ceremony room in the Old Mill and with the decorations in the Pavilion. We couldn't have asked for more. Our guests are still telling us how much they loved the food both on the day of the wedding and the day after!! So compliments to the chef Richie once again!! We just want to thank everyone for such a fantastic day. It was just perfect!

We want to say a sincere thank you to all the wonderful Millhouse staff for making our summer wedding so magical. On our first visit to the Millhouse Tina made us feel so welcome. There were so many things that made this venue special: the beautiful orchard; the view of the river Boyne; the stunning ceremony room and the charm of the house itself with each bedroom decorated in a unique style. But what really makes the Millhouse so special is the people that work there. Our wedding planner, Eve was so efficient and answered all our queries so promptly. We never had cause for concern that our day would be anything less than perfect. Everything went so smoothly thanks to her terrific organisation. On our wedding day every meal and drink was served with a warm smile and nothing was too much trouble. All of our guests commented on the wonderful food and our chef Richie ensured that each meal was beautifully presented and tasted delicious. We truly had the best day of our lives. Thank you. The Millhouse is a spectacular wedding venue.

Wintery wedding at the Millhouse, Slane, Co. Meath We had our wedding party at The Millhouse in Slane in November 2010, on the first snowy weekend of the winter. We had initially chosen the Millhouse for its beautiful location, its informal and relaxed feel, as well as the general attitude of the staff who were so happy to accommodate our wishes for a low key "non-weddingy" wedding party. We were also very impressed with the food at our menu tasting. When it came to the actual weekend, the weather was absolutely terrible. Thankfully everyone made it there but as the weather worsened over the evening it became clear that many of those staying elsewhere were not going to make it back! However this was no problem at all to the fantastic staff at the Millhouse who made up extra beds in every available space in the hotel, on floors and sofas. Some of the staff even gave up their own beds! All these unexpected guests were provided with the Millhouse's fantastic breakfast the following morning. Nothing was too much trouble! The Millhouse is a fantastic place for a party. If you want a wedding that is completely tailored to you, it is the perfect place. And I honestly think it is great value for money - you get exclusive use of a lovely house with no venue hire charge, even for our small budget the choice of menu options was amazing. All in all, the venue is great, the food is fantastic, the staff were so helpful and low key - we were very much made to feel that the house was our own for the weekend. Highly recommended.
