Wedding Testimonials

We attended a wedding fair in Faithlegg a few weeks after we got engaged and immediately fell in love with the place. As soon as we had finished the journey up the scenic driveway to arrive at the spectacular country house we knew our search for a wedding venue was over. Seeing the stunning Minaun ballroom and meeting the friendly, helpful staff sealed the deal for us! From our very first trip there Suzie, Linda and the wedding team put us at ease. They always had time to talk or answer emails with our many questions and requests in the run up to the big day. We could not have asked for any better for our wedding day.

Once we arrived at Faithlegg after our ceremony everything was taken care of for us by the wedding team and we never had one moment of stress or worry. The hotel grounds were the perfect backdrop for our wedding photos and we even got driven around the estate in a golf buggy to find the best photo locations! All of our guests commented on the beautiful surroundings, the top quality food, efficient service, extremely friendly staff and luxurious hotel rooms. Many of our family and friends stayed around for next day celebrations in Faithlegg golf club. This was a perfect venue for day 2 for us. Our guests got to enjoy the beautiful hotel grounds, golf course and spa for the day before being treated to an amazing barbeque buffet feast at the club house. We cannot thank the staff at Faithlegg enough for giving us the most amazing weekend of celebrations for our wedding. We can't wait to come back already for our first anniversary celebrations!

"We had our wedding at Faithlegg in September 2017 and were absolutely delighted by the service and facilities. Although we live overseas, the staff made the entire planning process exceptionally easy. They always responded to our enquiries in a timely manner, and were very accommodating and quick to offer helpful advice. The venue itself has real character and atmosphere, with a beautiful dining room and spectacular grounds for photos. The food for our reception was delicious and beautifully presented. It was also served piping hot to all the guests and the portion sizes were very generous. We had a truly wonderful experience at Faithlegg and would have no hesitation in recommending this fantastic venue."

 Ciarán & Nell, September 2017.

"Our wedding day was the 24th August 2017. We are so happy we decided to have it in Faithlegg House Hotel. Everything went amazingly well, Linda, Suzie and all the staff couldn't have been any better to deal with. If we ever had any issues or worries with anything they were willing to help and put our worries at ease, this was just what we needed especially when we were organising the wedding from Sydney. They replied quickly and never kept us waiting on anything. They were a pleasure to deal with.

The wedding day itself was everything we wanted and more, we were fortunate to have a sunny day and got to have our drinks reception in the marquee. Our guests loved the drinks reception as it made them feel very much part of the wedding day. The reception food was top class, I could not have faulted one thing and so many of the guests have complimented on the food since, and on how great all the staff were. The grounds of the venue were brilliant for wedding photo, our photographer got some lovely images. If we could do it all over again the first thing we would do book is Faithlegg House Hotel for our reception."

Thanks again for everything

Catherine & Tomas, 24th August 2017.

"I couldn’t possibly thank that Faithlegg House Hotel and its wonderful staff enough for everything they did to make our day as amazing as I dreamt it would be. Myself and my new hubby will be forever grateful. From the word go Suzie Molloy our wedding co-ordinator was so professional and helpful with all the preparations, doing everything to meet all our requests including organising Tayto sandwiches and blahs for the residents bar after the D.J. Their wedding brochure, we received at our first meeting was a great help with suggested reputable  bands, florists, photographers and cake suppliers as well as suggested menus/packages, seating plan layouts and F.A.Q.’s. It became our go to bible for organising the wedding. Suzie was always available over the phone/email and we had several lovely meetings over cups of tea and homemade cookies in the lead up to our special day. She really thought of everything in her in-depth, extensive checklist for the order of the big day. Absolutely every aspect of our wedding was discussed, finalised, double checked and confirmed in email a week before our fantastic day. I felt at ease knowing that herself and the Faithlegg staff had everything organised to a tee.

 The food in the Faithlegg House Hotel was delicious, Suzie organised a food tasting session for us well in advance of the wedding, which was one of the most enjoyable experiences in the build up to the great day. It was so hard to make a decision, on the menu, as all of the dishes we tasted were fabulous -  one better than the next, thanks to their award winning celebrity chef  Jenny who often stars on a cookery segment on Ireland A.M. I would highly recommend one of her signature dishes – a chicken and wild mushroom filo pastry parcel starter. All our friends are still raving about how nice it was. Jenny and her team did an excellent job with the food the day of our wedding, the food was absolutely perfect, even better than the tasting session (even though our speeches before then meal went overtime).

 The estate itself is fabulous. A perfect backdrop for wedding photographs. We did not need to even consider going anywhere else for our photographs. The front of the hotel has a very picturesque wooded area and golf course with a water feature, while the back gardens also have beautiful trees, a love chair, a maze and rustic steps leading up to the hotel for perfect photo opportunities. We did have a backup plan for pictures if the weather was bad. Suzie kindly showed us the photo opportunities inside the historical 18th century mansion  in their vintage styled bar, on the steps of their elaborate staircase with a feature window and under beautifully designed corniced plaster arches upstairs. The interior really had a vintage Downton Abbey feel to it, which I loved. We were blessed with sunshine on our day and we didn’t go inside until we were called for dinner. Instead we got our pictures outside and spent time sipping prosecco and chilling with our guests in their lovely garden marquee, which even included some garden games for the kids, although the adults enjoyed even more from Jenga to Chess and Connect 4.

The Minaun room for the reception was beautifully decorated and full of natural light, which added to the airy, relaxed atmosphere at the wedding. Suzie was brilliant yet again, assisting with the co-ordination of 2 jeep loads of décor from my friend Mags, who decorated the wedding. The Faithlegg staff paid great attention to detail laying out favours, table plans, table names, colouring books, bathroom baskets and photo props in the correct places.

Overall a truly positive experience from start to finish. Looking forward to booking in again for a treat for our first wedding anniversary."

“Myself and my husband got married in Faithlegg in August. It was the most amazing day. I cannot say how much I appreciated all of the staffs help on the lead up to the wedding and on the day. It went without a hitch, the room the bridesmaids and I got ready in was superb! The food was commented on by all our guests as the best wedding food they had ever had. Linda was so helpful with the music and the set up of our cake. The bar staff were very welcoming and the service was excellent. We didn’t even notice outside suppliers setting up as the Faithlegg team took care of everything. We had half our party coming from abroad and they were made feel extremely welcome and definitely received the best Irish hospitality! It is an incredible venue and we had the best day of our lives! Thank you Faithlegg staff for your hard work and welcoming approach! You made our day unforgettable!”

Thanks again Linda and Suzie.

“We had our wedding reception on August 7th 2017 at Faithlegg House Hotel. The drinks reception was a highlight for our guests, with the lawn games and marquee creating a relaxed atmosphere which was perfect for our photos too. I stayed in one of the hotel’s loveliest suites the night before our wedding, with my bridesmaids. The service we enjoyed was superb, from reception staff that evening, to the top class bar food, to the room service at breakfast. The suite itself, I will never forget, it was exquisite.

The main wedding reception itself was excellent, and for us at the top table, things ran like clockwork!  Linda was on hand from the moment we arrived back to the hotel after photos (prosecco at the ready!), and was the essence of calm and professionalism throughout the celebrations.  Almost three months later, friends and family are still commenting on the quality of the meal and the service in the Minaun Ballroom, the setting that really grabbed our attention on visiting the venue initially. It was laid out so well, and both Linda and Suzie were in contact with us right up to the wedding day to ensure we were happy with the table plan. On the day itself, the room was luminous, better than I had expected!

There was ample space to show off the wedding cake and take photos there, and the band also had a great location later on, which still allowed room for non-dancing guests to sit and chat in comfort. All special dietary needs were met, there was no stone left unturned to ensure all guests had a wonderful meal. As we had some younger guests attending, I was happy that they had room to play and mingle. The childrens’ meals were excellent, too. Of course, the playground outside proved a big hit.

Accommodation in the hotel was fabulous, the wedding suite we stayed in was luxurious and had lovely views. Breakfast each morning of our stay was delicious, with a great choice of continental – style and cooked options available. The setting for breakfast was relaxed and bright, and all our guests who stayed felt the benefit of this! For us, the day of our wedding moved from one moment to the next seamlessly. This is down to having professional, experienced and friendly staff. Linda, with whom we met a few weeks before our wedding, took us through each aspect of the reception.  We knew we were in expert hands.  The day following our wedding, we had a barbecue in the Golf Club, preceded (for some) by a round of golf or a long walk, a cycle or a swim.

Thank you to all of the team at Faithlegg House Hotel.”

“Thank you so much to you and all your colleagues for the fantastic service you provided us with for our wedding. From start to finish our wedding day was flawless. You are all experts at what you do. The food was fantastic, the setting was immaculate and the staff working on the day were so friendly, helpful, accommodating and efficient. Nothing was ever a problem to you during every stage of our planning process. You always replied to us so quickly when we asked questions which was so helpful - particularly in the days leading up to the wedding when the questions were tenfold!! Please pass on our sincere gratitude to everyone involved in making our big day such a success.”

 Sinéad and Barry, 15th July 2017

“Words are not enough to express our thanks to you and all the Faithlegg team for delivering the most perfect wedding day! We felt so special from when we arrived at the hotel the day before the wedding. All the staff instantly knew who we were and couldn’t have done more to help us. I was so fortunate to get ready on the morning of the wedding in the fabulous Lady Olivia room surrounded by family with everything being taken care for us. Everything on the day flowed so well, and all the preparations we’d done in advance with the wedding team meant sure everything went smoothly and we were completely free to relax and enjoy our special day. The standard of service during the meal was exceptional and we’ve been inundated ever since with praise and comments from all our guests about the beautiful food and hospitality they experienced too. The BBQ in the golf club on day two was the perfect finish to a perfect weekend!”

Maria & David, 30th June 2017

"We got married in Faithlegg in April this year. It was the most fabulous day and everything went just perfectly. Our bridal party stayed in the house the night before the wedding also and I have to say from the moment we arrived the staff couldn't have done more for us. Our rooms were stunning and were side by side which was brilliant for getting ready the next morning. On the lead up to the wedding Linda and Suzie were at end of the phone to help with any query or concern we had and helped put our minds at ease.

The grounds in Faithlegg are incredible  and on the magnificent spring day that it was we got fabulous photos without having to leave the grounds which left us we plenty of time to chat to the guests. The food was fabulous and served very promptly by the team who were very well presented and well mannered. The bar staff were very welcoming and the service was excellent throughout the night! The Faithlegg team took care of all our suppliers and pointed them in the right direction. Everything ran so smoothly on the day and there wasn't a second wasted thanks to the Faithlegg team. Faithlegg is a stunning venue and I would highly recommend it to future brides and grooms. We had the best day! 

Thank you to all the Faithlegg team for your kindness."

 “From the moment myself and my fiancée met Chris Boland the duty manager to enquire about holding our wedding in the hotel, we were treated exceptionally well. Chris was excellent at showing us around and each time I was at the venue before the wedding Chris was there and as ever extremely helpful, efficient and professional. Suzie Molloy was our wedding coordinator and nothing was too much trouble. I prefer to do things over email or in person and every email sent was replied to very quickly or if I wanted to meet up to discuss a few things there was a date and time found without hesitation. Closer to the date Linda Scarff was also involved in planning our special day and her expertise was invaluable. These three are a superb team and together they created our best day ever for our wedding in Faithlegg House. 

All our guests were commenting on the quality of the food served during the meal. The layout of the room was fantastic, the positioning of where the band were to set up was perfect, if you preferred to have a conversation with a guest and take a break from dancing the function room has suitable space for that behind the bands speakers (very rare at a wedding!) Our photographer was so impressed with the grounds and the hotel from looking at it online he stayed himself for a night or two a few months prior to our wedding. All the staff were excellent and extremely professional. We will be back again to stay a little longer perhaps. We cannot praise or recommend Faithlegg House Hotel enough. No other venue compares. 100% peace of mind.”

 Elaine & John McGinnity, 8th April 2017

"Thank you, Linda and all the staff, at Faithlegg House Hotel for making our wedding day such a wonderful occasion.  From the first time we came to view the hotel we were greeted with professionalism and warmth, and we knew right away that our search for a venue was over.  The venue itself was both luxurious and comfortable, and the roaring log fires really added to the ambience of our winter wedding.  We were lucky with the weather, and the beautiful grounds outside made for some stunning photographs.  The food was delicious and many guests commented that it was one of the best meals they had had at a wedding.  Our guests ranged in age from 1 to 92, and all were equally well looked after. 

 We were especially thankful that the venue was very easily accessible for some of the older guests.  The whole day went like clockwork thanks to Linda and the team, and our only regret was that it was over too fast.  Special shout out to Michaela from the spa who did my nails and make up - not only did she do an amazing job but she was a great calming influence and really helped put my nerves at ease on the morning of the wedding!

We really can't recommend Faithlegg House Hotel highly enough and wish you all every continued success.

 With best wishes,"

"We had our wedding in Faithlegg Hotel & Golf Resort on the 27th October 2016 and we were blown away by the overall experience. The Venue itself was exactly what we were looking for in terms of charm, atmosphere, scenery and food. We celebrated for 3 days with family & friends. Suzanne, Linda, Kelly, Chris and all the team were nothing but helpful in the run up to and during the course of the wedding, we couldn't praise them enough. As a wedding, Venue we couldn't fault anything, so...charming. The food was amazing on all 3 days, and our guests commented on the quality of food, the beef, the desserts, the breakfast - it was all amazing. After the main Venue wound down we were able to keep the party going in the beautiful lounge area, friends played music and sang into the wee... hours. Guest loved being able to relax and enjoy a few drinks. The Venue played a huge part in the success of our wedding, the amount of our guess who are still talking about y our Venue is testament to that. We have no hesitation in recommending Faithlegg House Hotel as a wedding Venue. Myself and my Husband can't wait to go back down. Thanks again!"

Barbara & Stephen Boweon, December 2016

"Faithlegg hotel was a great choice of venue for our wedding.Suzanne and Linda made sure that everything was planned and no stone was left unturned in preparation for our big day in Faithlegg. The advice we received from the two ladies was so valuable. They made our day really special and were extremely patient in the build-up dealing with last minute changes and requests. I cannot recommend Faithlegg House enough. Any couple thinking of a great venue with extremely helpful staff for their wedding should not look past Faithlegg house. Linda and Suzanne are excellent at their job and really took care of everything for us. We were never under any pressure as the two ladies were on hand in the run up and on the day to really add to our magical experience. I would give Faithlegg house hotel a 10/10 for service, friendliness, hospitality, quality of food, and facilities. Faithlegg house hotel is a must for couples looking for a wedding venue."

Alan & Kate Curraon, November 2016

"We got married in Faithlegg house hotel and had the most wonderful day, better then we could ever have imagined.

The wedding coordinator could not have been more helpful no stone unturned to ensure we had our dream come true which we certainly did. Friends and family still talk about the fabulous food and outstanding service. We had a BBQ in the golf club the day after and again fantastic from start to finish. Truly magical thank you Faithlegg. we go back every year and thehotel is only getting better."

Dara Nolan, November 2016

 

"We got married in Faithlegg and were looked after by Susie. There was no request too unusual that she did not attempt to help us with. They were very flexible as per the details that we wanted for our day (of which there were many including gluten and dairy free bridal party) and were pleasant throughout. Living nearby I was in often with my mum for tea and dinners and every time we visited someone would welcome us and make the whole thing seem really special!! Cannot praise them highly enough!! We had a fantastic day and it really reflected so well on Faithlegg that our guests loved the venue and could not fault it in any way!!! Loved it!"

Cora & Gerry, November 2016

 "To all the team in Faithlegg, Many sincerest thanks for a perfect day! All our guests were treated excellently and had a wonderful time - many of them asked us to pass on their thanks to you all. The service, food & hospitality was fantastic and we could not have asked for a more perfect setting, atmosphere and welcome for ourselves and our guests on our special day. We are most grateful for everything & hope to see you all again in the future."

David & Barbara, November 2016

“We couldn't have asked for a better wedding day at Faithlegg. Suzie was helpful and amazing from day one and Linda was absolutely brilliant on the wedding day and coming up to it. The food was piping hot and portion sizes were more than enough. Guests loved it too. Thank you so much. You really made our day the best day of our lives.”

Aoife and Declan Scanlon, April 2016

“What a wonderful wedding venue! From start to finish, with the excellent support & advice from Linda & Suzie, our wedding was a dream to organise with Faithlegg House Hotel. It can be a stressful time but this was never the case for us as the staff at Faithlegg made us feel confident & at ease with their excellent organisational skills. Our guests said It’s a pity we don't get married every year & have the chance to come to this beautiful venue. Thanks again to all.”
