Myself and PJ had our wedding with you on 9th March last year and we just wanted to say a huge thank you to both yourself and the team for all you did. We had a fantastic, unforgettable day and you guided us through it effortlessly. We knew we had chosen a great venue but each and everyone of your team absolutely exceeded any expectations we might have had. From arrival, to check out, we enjoyed every second.With a toddler and new baby we had our hands full in the lead up to it but you obliged any requests we had and made the whole experience so enjoyable and stress free.The service and food on the day was amazing.Our guests and suppliers were so complimentary of everything in the hotel, particularly the food which was very important to us, so big thank you to everyone! 

We wouldn't have been able to have the day we had without the team at Hotel Kilkenny so please pass on our thanks and appreciation to everyone and we hope to get back to see you soon.


Best wishes for 2020

To all Staff at Hotel Kilkenny,

Brian and I had our wedding day on Saturday 14th September in your hotel and we both just wanted to extend our gratitude to you all and all your hard work on the day. To you all at hotel kilkenny - from the front desk to the room service and all in between- we can not thank you enough. From very early on we knew we had picked the right location and venue- any time we visited your beautiful hotel we were always greeted with a warm smile and friendly face. Throughout the whole weekend of the wedding, everything went so smoothly and so well- down from the service, the food, the atmosphere- it was just amazing and that is down to you guys at the Hotel- We want to especially thank Joanne, David, Ross, June and John (Front desk) for all you did on the day and throughout the weekend. All guests commented on how beautiful the hotel was, how the staff were so friendly and helpful and the food was just perfect. Special thanks to all in the kitchen and the chefs - you really out done yourselves - all guests were raving about the food- how quick it was dished out, thanks to the servers, how tasty it was and how much choice we had, thanks to the chefs! One guest who was very badly coeliac - said to us that he never in his life was a wedding or event that had so much choice. Another guest who had two young kids commented on how the server staff were so helpful and so good in helping her with the kids at the meal. All of this made us feel so looked after and listened to so we just want to extend our thanks to you all. 

We also want to thank you for the Monart Spa stay- we went on the Wednesday afterwards and by god did we need it. It was just out of this world - it was absolutely beautiful !! So our many many thanks for this complimentary stay.


We really can't thank you enough - It really was the dream come true wedding. We were absolutely blessed with the weather and got our wish to have an outdoor ceremony. It really was everything we asked and more so we can't thank you enough!! It is definitely a day we will never forget. All guests were raving about how beautiful the hotel was and the staff and food and how lovely and friendly the ladies in reservations were. They also commented on how the rooms were immaculate and comfortable. 


We can't thank you enough guys !!! It was amazing so thank you soo very much :)


We absolutely loved our wedding day. It was faultless. And that is down to you all at Hotel Kilkenny.

You were so professional Joanne and Eimear too. From any requests we had, to timing to making us feel special for the weekend. We cannot say enough positive things about you.

So much so that we have been recommending you ever since, and a girl I work with recently booked her wedding for November 2020 with you.

We are regulars in Kilkenny so you will definitely be seeing us again soon.

Again, thanks to you, Eimear and the team that weekend, you were fantastic.

I just want to say a huge thank you to you and all the staff at Hotel Kilkenny, you pulled it all out of the bag for us, going above and beyond, making our wedding day and all the days coming up to it run so smoothly. I never had to worry about a single thing. We couldn't of asked for more. The arrival reception, the sky suite and tables, the meal, our room, even the layout of the memory table and sweet cart and that other table with the bits and pieces. We loved it. We have some fab pictures. I literally left in boxes of things to be put out where ever you thought best and it was just perfect. The kids were entertained throughout the meal with pictures and colours. You all went completely overboard. The feedback from our guests was all good. I can't thank you enough. We will certainly recommend you and Hotel Kilkenny to anyone we know.

Hi Joanne,

We just wanted to feed back to you how wonderful our day was on Saturday. The hotel could not be faulted in the way you all looked after us from start to finish. The room was decorated perfectly, the drinks reception and canapes were fantastic and the meal service was so professional. All our guests commented on what a great wedding it was. All the staff on duty were fantastic but we would particularly like to mention Liam who couldn't do enough for us throughout the whole weekend. Thank you so much for all you did in the run up to the day, you made the wedding planning so easy!!

We really appreciate everyone's hard work.

Dear Wedding team,

We cannot thank you and all staff at the hotel enough for making our wedding day so memorable! We are so happy that we chose Hotel Kilkenny, from our first visit to look at the venue right through to the day itself all the staff we met and dealt with have been professional and helpful.

We would like to thank Eleanor, Ross, Joanne and Aisling who looked after us on the day. They all made sure that the room was set up as we wanted it and that all of our guests were comfortable and well looked after. The Orchard suite was perfect, the hotel and rooms were spotless and the food was amazing.

We cannot say thank you enough for making our Wedding Day so special and we are already looking into our next visit to Hotel Kilkenny!

Now that the excitement of the last few days has started to settle, we just want to thank you, Eleanor and all the staff at Hotel Kilkenny for making our wedding day so special. It completely surpassed our highest expectations. Every little detail was amazing, the room looked spectacular and everyone just couldn’t do enough for us. Having our wedding reception in Hotel Kilkenny made our day the amazing day that it was. We are still getting so many compliments about the meal and the service. Some of our serial wedding guest friends have said it was the best wedding meal they have ever had. That is so fantastic for us to hear. 

Thank you so much for everything.

We want to say a huge thank you to you both and to all the staff in the hotel for making our wedding such a special occasion. We are delighted we chose Hotel Kilkenny as our venue and we will definitely recommend your hotel to other couples getting married in the future. 

Everything including the food, customer service, rooms, etc was amazing. We want to say a special thank you also to Eleanor and Gamze who we dealt with over the course of the weekend. They made sure that all our guests were well looked after. Please pass on this message to them. The bbq we had on the second day was so well organised by the hotel and the little touches like flowers on the table made it another very special day. The food was delicious.

We also want to say a big thank you for our stay in Monart we are really enjoying our time here.

Thank you again for everything. We really appreciate it and we look forward to returning to the hotel in the future. It will always have a special place in our hearts.

‘I want to take this opportunity again to thank the hotel and all staff members, from the management, bar staff and table servers and even the friendly cleaners who all spoke so politely to our guests when passing, and special thanks to you Joanne for making our day perfect. Also top notch food on the wedding day and excellent finger food and display on the sunday. Everyone including us thoroughly enjoyed the entire weekend’

‘I wanted to get in contact to express our very sincere but belated thanks for the wonderful service we received from you and the team in Hotel Kilkenny, not only on our wedding day but throughout the planning also.

We could not be happier with how the day went, every aspect of the wedding day in Hotel Kilkenny exceeded our expectations, from the drinks reception,to the food and the beautifully laid out room. Every member of staff we met on the day, particularly Eleanor, displayed such a high level of professionalism - no stone was left unturned; we truly felt exceptionally well looked after. These sentiments were echoed by many of our guests who were very impressed with the service, the food and the setting. 

We would like to extend a very special thanks to you, Eimear, for all of your help in planning our wedding, you made sure that every detail was considered and did so in a very supportive manner.’
