TESTIMONIALS

"Kilkea Castle is the dream. When they say you can have a fairytale wedding, it is true. I had my wedding the 22nd of July and I really felt like I was in a fairytale and I was the Queen. All guests did not want to leave the castle."

Deborah & Francesco Blasi

"We had our wedding reception in Kilkea Castle in December 2018. To summarise - we cannot recommend this venue highly enough! The staff were absolutely incredible throughout every stage of the process but were particularly impressive the day of the wedding. They were so accommodating, and nothing was ever a problem. On the day of the wedding, everything ran like clockwork because of their hard work."

Eimear & Mark Cassidy

Our wedding reception at Kilkea Castle was like a fairy-tale plucked out of a childhood dream. When choosing a wedding venue, we had set out to find one that not only had we not been to but that took our breath away as well. We had a lot of guests flying over from abroad and it was important to us to find a venue that would accommodate not only all of our guests, but our celebrations throughout the whole weekend as exclusively as possible. To Elaine, the most patient and understanding of all people, we are so grateful to you all for your hard-work making our dream a reality. All that filled the rooms of Kilkea Castle that weekend was music and laughter from all of our favourite people and it was because nothing was too much for you. The weekend was excellently executed to the very finest of details and your efforts truly surpassed our imagination. The fond memories of our beautiful weekend will be cherished in our hearts always and we cannot wait to come back again for our one-year anniversary!

"We chose Kilkea Castle for our June destination wedding without ever visiting the location before. The moment we drove down the long tree lined path and saw the breathtaking castle, we knew that we were in for something even more special than we envisioned. The grounds, the staff, the food, and the event were absolutely perfect."
