Firstly I want to start by saying how beautiful this venue is. The grounds are stunning and the lodge itself is luxurious and homely, we especially loved having the fires on around the lodge. We couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect wedding venue. The staff were fantastic from start to finish. Chris looked after us whilst we were there, he was friendly, organised and ensured that the whole weekend ran smoothly. He listened to what we wanted and helped us decide on the best way to do things...he sure knows his stuff! The bar staff were great, especially Ray who remembered everyone’s drinks. They were really accommodating and played my music on all 3 nights. Jean looked after me on the wedding day and she was so calm and lovely and was on hand to bring us anything we needed. All our guests commented on how delicious the food was throughout the weekend, from breakfast, to the wedding day to the bbq the day after. The guests also commented on how smoothly the day ran, the timings ran to perfection and the whole day was seemless. Nothing we asked was too much trouble. I honestly couldn’t fault this as a wedding venue, if you want the wedding of your dreams, this is the place!

Virgina Park Lodge is a truly special venue. From start to finish the service was impeccable. The staff are absolutely fantastic and a pleasure to deal with. The venue is beautiful, the quality of accommodation is excellent. Needless to say the food is phenomenal. Their in house florist is so talented and really amazing and all couples marrying here should use her.

We cannot recommend Virginia Park Lodge highly enough. Our wedding was a dream - the staff were wonderful - friendly + professional + everything ran so smoothly. To say the food was exceptional, is an understatement. Lots of our guests said it was the best banquet food they had ever eaten (that shellfish consomme - total wow!) The venue is stunning, the service impeccable and we couldn't have asked for anything more.

We were drawn to Virginia Park Lodge by the exclusive use of the venue for the day and the beautiful house, grounds and reception. The staff on the day were incredible, everything was taken care of without us needing to even think of it. We couldn't thank Deirdre, Nick and the whole staff for the ease of the day. We would not hesitate to recommend the venue

Declan and myself had the best day! Virgina Park Lodge is such a beautiful location and the food was outsanding. Deirdre and her team were a pleasure to deal with, they made the planning and co-ordination of our weekend stress free. We can’t recommend them enough.

We had an absolutely stunning time in VPL. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the whole place seemed like a fairytale. I have not heard one bad thing so far from any of our guests and in fact we repeatedly had people telling us that VPL was the best wedding venue they had ever been to. We had a rehearsal dinner the night before which was beautiful and the way the table and room was set up was truly something to behold. The staff in VPL were all so friendly but a special mention is due to the barman Ray who was an absolute gentleman and was still so pleasant when people were ordering drinks at 4am! The meal at the reception was first class and while there was no choice on the menu all dietary requiements were met. VPL has grown and developed hugely since we first booked the venue almost 18 months ago. When we booked, very few of our friends and guests had really heard of the venue so we feel like we are extremely lucky that we had our wedding in Ireland's best kept secret! Would recommend to any future couples for a 5 star experience

Virginia Park Lodge was everything we wanted for our wedding and more. Almost a year on and our guests still rave about Richard Corrigan's food, especially the beef wellington. One of the main reasons for choosing the venue was the fantastic high-quality but hearty food that Richard cooks and the fact that all the produce is either grown in the gardens or sourced locally. Deirdre, Bláithín and all the staff were more than helpful from the very first day we went to view the house and were happy to help with any requests we had, nothing was ever an issue. When we drove up the tree-lined avenue of the Lodge on our wedding day we could relax as we knew the team had everything in hand. The Lodge itself is beautifully restored and guests loved mingling, relaxing and later partying in the reception rooms of the house. The shepherds huts provided a unique stay for some of our friends while older guests loved the downstairs family wing in the main Lodge. The only downside is we had to leave when it was all over!

Firstly, my husband and I were thrilled with our wedding at VPL in Oct 2017 and we still look back on it as the best day of our lives to date. We booked out the venue for a rehearsal dinner, the ceremony, dinner and dancing. The venue, food and service were all immaculate throughout the two-day event. I docked a star for responsiveness and professionalism on this survey because there were a few small issues related to organising the accommodation on the run up to the event. I don't think it was intentional as the staff really strive to do their best and in hindsight I think the real issue is that although our wedding day was the most important (and probably most expensive) event in our lives and all we could think about a year in advance, it was just another function in the future for the staff. They were likely working on more urgent events scheduled to occur closer to the time. To be specific, the only frustrating aspect of our wedding planning was related to accommodation. VPL doesn't use a shared document to track rooming arrangements or room changes, rather it relies on spreadsheets emailed back and forth. It was not surprising then that some updates were missed. We also found that new rooms/room configurations were added without any heads-up and sometimes we were waiting for a while for an explanation. All that said, everything worked out well in the end. All in all, VPL staff provided a super service, price per head for meals was worth it for the quality and tastiness of the meals served. Everything down to logistics and timetables for our event were superbly coordinated while we were on site. I can't recommend the venue enough. It's beyond beautiful and the village itself is really charming.

Outstanding venue with top quality food and service

The most amazing venue with wonderful staff. We cannot say enough about the lodge. It surpassed all our expectations. Deirdre is the most amazing coordinator/manager/planner. She made everything so easy for us on the day. The food is outstanding and over a year later people still talk about it all the time. Stunning venue, worth every penny. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

The most wonderful wedding venue, I still have friends messaging me about how incredible our day was. The food is impeccable as is the service from all of the amazing staff. From start to finish we were so well looked after, I wish I could do it again and again. Stop searching and book Virginia Park Lodge, you will not regret it.

Genuinely VPL was amazing from start to finish! The venue is obviously stunning and the food is incredible but it was the staff that made our wedding weekend! Deirdre Corrigan was amazing on the day and throughout the planning process, nothing we wanted was trouble or an issue! Our friends and family had a really great time which was our main priority for our wedding. I couldn’t recommend Virginia park lodge enough :)

Review by
Arranged celebration from overseas. Deirdre and team were so helpful, helped us have things the way we wanted, even if not typical and so more difficult for them. Accommodated requests from family also to give us a surprise on the day. Staying a second night is highly recommended. “Simple” family meal the next day was almost as good as the day itself.

We knew this would be a special place from the minute we drove through the gates. We have so many good things to say about Virginia Park Lodge and its wonderful staff. It was exactly the venue we were looking for - classy but with a relaxed atmosphere, somewhere with character, somewhere that served amazing food and offered an incredible service. Our guests have raved about this magical place ever since. Deirdre, Karine and the team were wonderful to work with - full of energy and enthusiasm - nothing was ever too much trouble and they made you feel that you were the only couple having a wedding in their venue (even though we know they had one every week). Words cannot describe how incredible Richard's food was the entire weekend. You don't often see a Beef Wellington being served to over 130 people to such a high standard. The flowers prepared by Hilary were so beautiful - we were over the moon with them. We had such an amazing time here and we will hold the fondest memories of our special day with family and friends in Virginia Park Lodge forever. Thank you!

Richard's team at VPL are professional, efficient and friendly. Since our wedding we have had countless comments from our guests saying not just how amazing the venue was and how the food surpassed even the highest expectation but how every guest was made to feel superbly welcome at this unique venue. We are so pleased we selected Virginia Park Lodge, they really did give us a perfect day. We can't recommend them highly enough.

Stay the night before and after as it is such a beautiful venue

We were extremely fortunate to have chosen Virginia Park Lodge for our wedding venue and am very glad that we did. The team could not have been more helpful in both the build up to and over the wedding weekend. The venue itself was superb and we had so many compliments on the quality of the food and service not only for the wedding feast itself, but the family feast the evening before, the bar-b-que on Sunday and breakfasts each day - it was really first class. The venue itself has undergone major refurbishment and the quality of rooms and furnishings in the main lodge were of a very high standard. While there is ongoing work to do in the cottages, it is clear that the commitment and ongoing investment by the owners will make this one of the best wedding venues in Ireland! The grounds are lovely and provide a great setting for photographs including the fabulous views over the lake, The option of having an outdoor service in the Lavender Garden is also a nice feature but the fact that the whole venue is located within a working organic vegetable farm that provides the very freshest ingredients as part of the wedding feast, grown and hand picked on site, is really something quite unique. I would recommend Virginia Park Lodge without hesitation! Its a very special place

Spectacular in every way.. Cant recommend it enough. The whole experience was amazing. The food was fantastic and considering the size of our guest list it was quiet the achievement to maintain the standard throughout. The setting is breathtaking and the service is to match. I have no reservations on recommending VPL to any bride
