Wedding Testimonials

Dear 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. 

Many thanks again for everything
Pete and Sammy


Dear Margaret, 

We're just back from our Honeymoon and wanted to drop you a few lines of thanks and praise for making our wedding day so special. We always knew we were in safe hands but our expectations were well and truly surpassed by the level of professionalism and genuine attention by all the Banqueting Team. Nothing was too much trouble for them & there was no fuss. They were prepared to do whatever we wanted and I doubt if this would have been accommodated so seamlessly anywhere else. 

All of our Guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves, with compliments to the Chef, being amongst the first words from most. The Wine was also a huge hit & it was Ian the Sommelier’s recommendation of the Malbec that went down (literally) so well. I would appreciate it if you could let him know and pass on our thanks. We would also like to thank you Margaret for all of your assistance and guidance in the planning and faultless execution of a wonderful Day. We couldn't have done it without you and will be forever grateful, you're a real credit to your profession. In fact all at Dromoland represent it so well and have contributed to making some very special memories for this lucky couple. 

Thanks again and all the best for the future.

Sinead and Michael


Dear Margaret, 

It is very rare in life that an experience surpasses your expectations ten-fold, but in the case of our wedding at Dromoland Castle this was exactly what happened.Prior to the day itself, my then fiancé and I already had high expectations that our wedding would be the most amazing day of our lives, what we didn’t expect was that the same would be true for many of the guests who attended our wedding. Three months on we continue to receive daily telephone calls and emails thanking us for this ‘Exceptional/ Faultless Day’.

 On our Wedding Day the Dromoland team managed to treat each one of our 120 guests as though they were the only guests there – each guest was given individual attention and any requests they made were quickly met. The food at the wedding was just as wonderful – it was exquisite and every single one of our guests was in agreement. The accommodation at Dromoland is an experience – for those of our guests who decided to stay, they all concluded that it was one of the nicest, most spacious, beautiful rooms they had ever stayed in. For other guests with a smaller budget, they had the convenient option of staying at the nearby Inn at Dromoland hotel (a free shuttle ran between the castle and the Inn) which proved very popular. 

Another huge advantage of our wedding of Dromoland was the advent of the extraordinarily helpful Dromoland wedding planner, Margaret Daly. She was an absolute ‘gem’ and behind us every step of the way. Without her help and support this amazing day would not have been possible. She knew all the right questions to ask and always had the answers to my endless questions. We will forever be grateful to she and the team for providing us with what proved to be a wedding beyond our wildest dreams!

We have finally got around to sending an official "Thank You" to you and the team. The delay in sending this is by no means a reflection of our day, if anything, we just struggled to put the right words together which would adequately express our gratitude. Right from the start Margaret your style and approach was so professional and balanced with a warm understanding and appreciation for how we wanted our day to turn out.

People will always tell you how stressful organising a wedding is, but the one thing Andy and I never once stressed about, was anything to do with Dromoland.The castle itself is an amazing venue in a stunning location, but it is the people who work there that give Dromoland the edge over any other 5 star location. Everything about our day was top class. And I write this not to boast, but it is the only way I know how to pay tribute to you and the team.  

Our guests to this day still talk about the service at the meal and the quality of the food. So many actually commented on how they felt like they were the wedding party they were treated so well. And they had never experienced that level of service as a wedding guest previously.  The team at Dromoland Castle as far as we're concerned are world leaders in hospitality and customer service. But the reason that is the case is because it is genuine. The welcome is so genuine and the conversation is so enjoyable.  

Margaret, to you and the team in Dromoland we say a very sincere thank you and we look forward to seeing you all soon again. 

Lourda & Andy
