Vijal and the team did an amazing job with BBQ too. We couldn't believe how well it was done. Everyone had an amazing time. 

Please thank all of the staff for making the day so special for us! It was perfect.

Hi Margaret, 

I am back at work and back into the swing of things now... just! And loving being a married woman so far. Dave and I are still talking which is a good sign! ;) 

I’m sorry we didn’t get to see you again before we left Ireland. Just wanted to say one last and VERY big thank you for all of your help both leading up to and on the day of our wedding. We had the best day/weekend of our lives and almost completely owe that to you and your colleagues at Dromoland. We are utterly astounded at the level of service and professionalism you offer and truly believe we could not have picked a better place in the world to host our big day. We will remember it forever and hopefully be back one day to visit... anniversary perhaps! Hint hint to my new hubby! 

I hope you have a wonderful remainder of summer with many more successful weddings at the castle. Although I struggle to see how any could match up to how fantastic ours was! 

Thanks again and regards,

Louise and David

Dear Mark, 

I am writing to let you know how delighted we are that we hosted our daughters wedding reception at Dromoland. From the moment we arrived the attention and service we received was second to none and left our entire family with many many happy memories of a marvellous weekend. 

My first point of contact was Margaret Daly and she was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Nothing ever appeared to be too much trouble and her advice and assistance were invaluable. 

As with Margaret every member of your staff that we had contact with were also a pleasure to deal with and this went a very long way to making our stay extra special. You obviously take staff training seriously, and it shows. Unfortunately these days this is a rare occurence. 

The wedding reception itself was a huge success with all our guests raving about the food and service.

So my sincere thanks to you and your staff and I look forward to returning to Dromoland.

Dear Margaret, 

It is amazing how time flies when you are enjoying yourself! I can’t believe that it’s already 5 days since we were walking into Dromoland with the excitement of what was to come. Our families, friends, Ken and I really had a truly wonderful few days with you all.

 Everyone was so welcoming, accommodating, helpful and positive. It was a pleasure to be there. From Cara, Tom, Mick and the wonderful John we all felt most welcome. Deirdre and staff looked after us all so well on the Thursday evening.

Nico and all the staff were fantastic on the Friday.  Your organization, calm reassurance, and thoughtful gestures really made it a great weekend.  The robes, the dromoland ducks for the kids and champagne were  greatly appreciated all  round.

Ken was so impressed with your welcome to him on Thursday. "Welcome home!". He included it in his speech. 

So, thank you so very much for making our wedding the time of our lives. I had wanted to thank you personally on Saturday, however time got the better of me. I did, however, catch a glimpse of you making another lovely bride feel exceptional on her day. 

We picked Dromoland for the venue, and indeed it is fabulous, but it is the warmth of the staff that we will remember! We won't be strangers.

Many thanks again and looking forward to visiting you again soon

Julianne and Ken

Dear Margaret, 

Where do I start? 

From beginning to end our day was everything and more than we expected. From the rooms to the food to the staff everything surpassed our dreams.

Margaret thank you so so much for all of your help and please pass on our thanks to all of the staff in Dromoland. We are so grateful to you all for making our day so wonderful. 

Next time we are down I would love to meet you to thank you in person. 

Kindest regards and thanks again

 Dear Mark,

May we thank you most sincerely for the warm welcome Margaret, Nico and you gave to our wedding guests and ourselves last month. We cannot praise Dromoland enough for what was a magical day for us both. The professionalism of your team shone through from the moment our guests checked in, until the moment they left.

In particular, we want to pay tribute to Margaret, who responded without hesitation to every request, went above and beyond the call of duty before the big day, was so helpful and took a load off our
mind. Margaret- you are an excellent ambassador for the castle.

Nico, made sure the meal ran so smoothly, and efficiently, quite a few of our guests commented on this. He is a consummate professional. We feel we got excellent value for money having our reception at Dromoland Castle, our expectations were exceeded from the moment Shay handed our a glass of champagne. Our guests were 'blown away' at the attention to detail by you. The meal was outstanding in both quality and quantity, please pass on our compliments to the chefs .We couldn't recommend Dromoland Castle highly enough. Thank you once again for giving us a day(and late night) to remember. We can't wait for our next visit to the castle!

Yours Sincerely,
Derek & Niamh



Hi Margaret,

I just wanted to drop you a quick thank you for everything you did to make our wedding day so very special. We only got back from honeymoon last week and are still in a whirlwind about our magical weekend. We had the time of our lives and judging by the responses we have had from our guests, so did everyone else. There were lots of comments about the gorgeous setting, the great service and the food. People were flabbergasted at how the chef cooked 200 steaks to order and cooked them all so perfectly. Please pass on our thanks to the chef.

Overall, the wedding was completely seamless, everything went like clockwork and your staff were just fantastic. There was always someone to help me out or calm me down. haha.

Anyway, official thank you notes are on their way but I wanted to make sure you knew how grateful we were for all the hard work you put into it.

Many thanks again for everything
Pete and Sammy



Hi Margaret

I hope you are well. We had a fabulous day, the day of our wedding. We were really delighted with everything and everyone is still raving about the meal and the wedding. Thanks very much to you all at Dromoland. Quite a few of our friends are planning a trip back to Dromoland.

We had a lovely time on our Honeymoon. We got back last week so getting back to normality.

Thanks again.
Anne and Paul


Hi Margaret, 

Hope you are keeping well? Just wanted to drop a quick note to say thanks for all the help on our wedding day. Everything went very smoothly and we couldn't have been happier with everything the hotel staff did for us. While it went even more smoothly that we could have expected we understand the work that goes on in the background to get it to that position.

Can you also pass on our thanks to Ann Romer, both Siobhan and I were absolutely delighted with the flowers we were amazed with the detail on the bouquets and it was a real pleasure looking at them when we were sitting on the top table.

Also, thanks to yourself you were absolutely great in taking the pressure off and helping to make things run smoothly.
Many thanks and hope to see you again in the future at some stage, we'll definitely be back.

Barry & Siobhan



I am sorry this is so late, but I just wanted to thank you and all the staff and Dromoland for the wonderful wedding that we had in March. Everything was great, from the minute our guests drove onto the grounds, through the wedding festivities and then finally the departure. You made us all feel welcome and the castle looked fantastic. The people you recommended, such as Anne did a marvelous job in making the day special for Jessica and Jason as well as for Jan and I. I can't tell you how many wonderful comments we have received about the castle, the grounds, the rooms, the breakfasts the food at the wedding and the overwhelming graciousness of the people who work there who attended to our guests.

Jessica set up a website for all to post their pictures and each time new ones are added there are scenes that I didn't get to see, though I have been there three times now. Can't wait till the final wedding photos come!



Dear Margaret,

I have been meaning to write and thank you since Ingrid's marriage to Anders on the 29th March this year. Margaret, you made the day a most memorable for all of us. Everything went so well, as one guest wrote that from the moment she and her husband arrived at Dromoland on the Friday night, to when they left on Sunday they were totally uplifted.

The hotel was a marvelous venue and your organization for the day was excellent and without exception. Margaret, this letter of thanks is late in coming but words cannot express my thanks as Ingrid's mum for all that you did. You did more than the call of duty, so once again many thanks for a truly marvelous wedding day.

Yours sincerely,




On behalf of Conor & I, we would like to say a big thank you for making our day so special.

Everything went smoothly and everyone enjoyed the day.

The food was magnificent and the service perfect.

Best of luck for all the future weddings, we will certainly recommend Dromoland Castle.





Just a quick note from Johannesburg to say thanks so much for everything. We had the most fantastic day and everyone in Dromoland was so kind and helpful to us. We are so grateful for all your help since last December. No issue was too large or small and you just made things seem so easy.

Looking forward to returning to Dromoland in the years ahead to relive the memories of our day which you helped make so special.

Kind Regards,
Laura & Peter
