On behalf of Jenny and I, I wanted to thank you and the entire staff of Waterford Castle for your part in our wedding, particularly Mirka and Antonio. Every single detail was flawless, the setting, the food, the service and most of all the responsiveness of the staff. Jenny Doyle and Brian O'Mahony

December 2013

Our lengthy and ongoing search for a venue for our civil wedding came to a sudden and abrupt end when we walked into the foyer of Waterford Castle. We were married in Waterford Castle on 27th December 2013, and can’t recommend it enough. Our ceremony took place at 4.30pm, and as the light outside started to dim, the Castle took on a whole new atmosphere, low light and candles, with a scene setting fire and because we had the whole Castle to ourselves, we just relaxed into the occasion. And relax we did. Mirka and the staff of Waterford Castle were on hand all day and nothing was too much trouble, they were phenomenal. The food was some of the best we have ever had and the celebrations went on until the early hours. Thank you Waterford Castle for delivering on your promises, and giving us an amazing day to remember. Neal & Suzanne O’Leary

We had our wedding here in July this year and had an absolute ball. Everything was amazing, the staff could not do enough, mirka, our beautiful,kind and helpful wedding planner went above and beyond for us to ensure our day went without a hitch,Definitely one of a kind. All staff were so professional and willing to please. Antonio and Derek deserve a special mention also, such lovely, genuine people.
The castle itself is so picturesque and the food is out of this world. The novelty factor of getting boat over to island and it being able hold all wedding guests, it is like your own private island for a day. Rooms are beautiful,old window frames are a particular favourite. Can't rate it highly enough and can't wait to go back and stay. Family and friends still raving about what a wonderful setting it is and its outstanding food.

“We recently held our wedding ceremony and reception at Waterford Castle, and would highly recommend it as a wedding venue. The castle is located on an island in beautiful surroundings, has a lovely ambience and is an intimate venue for such an important occasion. All the staff were very professional and helpful, both beforehand and on the wedding day, ensuring that we could relax and enjoy the day. The food and wine, and the quality of service were excellent. A lot of our guests commented that it was a magical day.”

“The day itself was excellent and Gillian and all the team could not have done anymore to make it better. One of our guests , Tony O’ Donnell the Exec Chef in the Burlington, tried to call into Michael in the kitchen to compliment him on the quality and presentation of the food (best he had ever had at a wedding!!) but unfortunately Michael had finished up for the night. Please pass on the comments of my Exec Chef to Michael as I feel it is really rare that such quality is served at weddings. It was really a highlight for our guests who continue to comment on how fantastic the venue and staff were not only on the day but on the day before and the day after. I know Gillian did so much to help make this day great and no request no matter how large or small was looked after brilliantly”

Deborah and Karl

_” We had the most amazing wedding day in Waterford Castle , it was well and truly the best day of our lives. Everything was perfect, the castle, the food, the service, – all fantastic. From the moment you arrive on the island by ferry it is like you are whisked back in time to a fairy tale on your own private island for the day. The staff are brilliant at the castle, so accommodating and nothing was too much trouble for them, they were always available yet so discreet! Having the place to ourselves for the day really made the whole experience, just having our own guests there made it so special and intimate. We had excellent support from Gillian right from the day we booked our wedding until we checked out, she made sure everything ran smoothly on the day and was always on hand when we had questions or requests, she is so efficient! The barmen Peter and Derek were so helpful on the night of the wedding and the guests really enjoyed chatting to them at the bar!

All of the guests had a wonderful day and said it was such an amazing wedding, they are still talking about it, mainly about the delicious food – thanks Michael Quinn! We couldn’t have wished for a more perfect place to spend our special day, a truly magical wedding venue. We would both like to thank Waterford Castle for everything and we are looking forward to spending many anniversaries to come back on the island!

“As a couple from California looking for a wedding venue all the way in Ireland it was hard to put complete trust in the pictures we saw posted online. As our communication with Waterford castle staff continued, we became more at ease because the staff was so kind and thorough with our plans. When we arrived, we were well taken care of the entire week, up until the day we had to leave. Waterford Castle staff and scenery exceeded our high expectations and we are so thankful we chose this amazing place for our wedding day”

Alice and Eamon

“We had a truly magical wedding at Waterford Castle. It was an amazing and very happy day. Everything was so well organised in lead up to and on the day of the wedding. The staff were so friendly and welcoming, and the service was perfect. The castle and grounds are very beautiful, and the luxurious rooms are full of character. We have had so many compliments from our guests on the excellent food and the beautiful setting. It is also very hard to beat having exclusive use of a castle on its own private island!!”

Emma and David

“A simply breathtaking setting on its own island reached by private ferry. Whether staying in the Castle or the lodges, our guests were spoiled from start to finish. The kitchen served outstanding gourmet food while the staff provided excellent service to one and all throughout the entire day. We had a wonderful time there and are already looking forward to the next time we can stay with you. In a word ‘flawless’.”
