We really enjoyed our wedding day at Kinnitty. Everything went on time and the venue was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The food was enjoyed by everyone and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were uniquely decorated and our guests enjoyed their stay.

Kinnitty Castle is completely beautiful throughout. The food for our wedding meal was outstanding for both ourselves and our guests. We ourselves have not had better quality of hot freshly made food at a wedding in Ireland before. The wedding team on the day were always on hand to keep everything to the schedule on the day. Apart from the ceremony itself (a bride is allowed to be late) everything was perfectly timed. Thank you to all the staff at Kinnitty.

Could not have asked for a better wedding venue or wedding staff, our wedding coordinators Lyndsey and Simon - absolutely two fantastic people to work with! You will be able to relax fully with this excellent team around you!

My wife and I live in the USA and wanted to have our wedding in Ireland. This meant that all of our planning and arrangements would be half a world away. We were impressed by the amount of effort and assistance we got from all of the people at Kinnitty Castle, from the Reception Desk to the Wedding Planner. The wedding was totally planned out; we only had to deal with small extras which they helped us find with recommendations on each things we needed. After getting our cake and flowers sorted out, we hired a band, a photographer, found a minister to perform the ceremony, and we were ready to go. On the day before our wedding, we showed up at the castle and everyone on the staff was ready to help us get settled. Our families and friends all came the night before and started the wedding off with a long night in the dungeon bar where we listened to a local musician play while everyone drank and danced. The day of the wedding, everything we needed was set up and ready whenever we needed it. The staff set up the ceremony hall for us, then afterward ushered everyone to the lounge for drinks while we took pictures. The ceremony hall was changed over for the reception and the castle staff again ushered everyone into the hall to be seated so we could come in last to a big round of applause. The food was impeccable, with meat, fish, and vegan options. After dinner, we all moved to the dungeon bar for a few minutes while the staff AGAIN cleared part of the room and set it up for dancing with the band. We danced until almost midnight and then moved back to the dungeon bar when the band had to go. The dungeon bar was the perfect cozy spot to finish the night (at 5am) with the hardiest of the wedding guests doing shots and drinking Guinness. We woke up bright and early at 8am for breakfast and had to bid our hosts goodbye. It was one of the best experiences of my life and every one of our guests came up to us to comment on how our wedding was the most fun they've had in many years. It thrilled both of us that the nights had gone so terrifically well and we're already thinking about a 10 year anniversary party at the castle. I can't say enough good things about all of the people at the castle who helped us celebrate our marriage. I honestly can't remember everyone's names, but Simon, Lyndsey, Clair, Aiden, Steven, and everyone else who helped out deserve a huge portion of the credit for how well the wedding went.

We had such an amazing day, the guests really enjoyed it and said the food was fantastic, and staff are very friendly and helpful it was brilliant day.

Our wedding at Kinnitty Castle exceeded our expectations in every regard. From arriving on the grounds and seeing the castle for the first time, through our ceremony, dinner, and reception, the venue was stunning, the staff were cordial and helpful, and everything was executed perfectly. There were no problems and the castle was quick to accommodate all of our requests, both during the wedding planning as well as during the event itself. Additionally, the food was spectacular! Everyone made note of this during dinner and the food we ate at the castle was undoubtedly the best we tried during our entire trip to Ireland.
12th August 2017 Jacinta & Padraig
The staff at Kinnitty and especially our coordinator Lyndsey went above and beyond to make the occasion of our wedding amazing. All of our guests were amazed at the service we all received.
10th August Elina & Philip
We got married at Kinnitty in August and it was just perfect, the table and room was set up beautifully even all the kids table toys and games were all in their little area. Food was fabulous guests even commented on how good the food was afterwards. All staff at the castle were amazing and willing to help out with what ever they could. We had a beautiful day and we enjoyed it very much wouldn't change a single thing about it all. Thank you all very much!!!!
29th July 2017 Nora & Mike
We got married in Kinnitty Castle last weekend and what an amazing venue it is! The staff are so friendly and warm, and they really could not have been nicer. The team were happy to take care of all the little details on our wedding day and everything went so smoothly. Simon and Lyndsey were fantastic to deal with, especially as they were so prompt and helpful which we really appreciated when planning a wedding from New Zealand. Our guests were so impressed with how beautiful the castle and grounds are, and everyone was raving about the food. We highly recommend Kinnitty Castle as a wedding venue because our day was simply magical.
25th July Jennifer & Michael
Our wedding at Kinnitty Castle was absolutely perfect. Nothing went wrong & nothing could have made it better. Lyndsey was so helpful in coordinating everything. Her recommendations for the photographer and officiant were excellent. The hotel is beautiful and grounds are breathtaking. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The food was amazing, maybe the best meal of our lives. I can't recommend this hotel & staff enough! Absolutely wonderful!
20th July 2017 Teresa & Enda
We had a wonderful wedding. Beautiful memories were made. We were so pleased that we chose to get married at Kinnitty Castle.
15th July 2017 Fidelma & Vincent
I couldn't recommend Kinnitty Castle highly enough. It's such a magical place for a wedding. I couldn't picture having our wedding anywhere else. No hotel no matter how highly rated can offered what Kinnitty Castle can. It's not a hotel, it's your Castle, for your wedding. How you want it. The staff couldn't do anything more to ensure our day was as magical as it was. Our whole family are suffering from withdrawal symptoms since staying in Kinnitty over the weekend of our wedding. Thankfully we are lucky enough to be able to make regular return visits and I'm hoping this year flies by just so I can celebrate our anniversary back at My Castle. Don't waste your time considering an alternative wedding venue. Just book it and let Lyndsey do her thing. She will take the stress from you.
8th July 2017 Marissa & Shane
We got married at Kinnitty Castle on July 8th of this year and we could not have chosen a more perfect place to celebrate our special day! Not only were the grounds gorgeous, but the food was impeccable and the staff were amazing. They couldn't do enough for us! My husband and I live in America, but decided to travel to Ireland for the wedding because he has a large family living there. It's not easy to plan a wedding abroad, but the entire staff, especially our wedding coordinator, Lyndsey, made it all very simple. Lindsey was incredible, not only on the day of the wedding, but also in the months leading up to it. It really put us at ease to know we were in such good hands. Every single request was met and exceeded our expectations. Every question and every email was met with a pleasant demeanour, and she was nothing but friendly and warm to us for the 10 months leading up to our big day. We cannot recommend this venue enough! We look forward to visiting again in the near future!
1st July 2017 Subrina & Jason
Our Wedding day was 1st July 2017. We spent the weekend at the castle with family and friends and had the most amazing magical time. We will never forget our wedding weekend and are so grateful to all at Kinnitty for helping make our day as special as it was for us.
25th May 2017 Travis & Lewis
We just got married at Kinnitty Castle and to say we were happy with the castle would be an understatement. Simon and the rest of the staff took care of everything from the moment we arrived. Our guests and family were taken care of with the greatest attention to detail. Kinnitty's effort was especially impressive and important because we did all the planning remotely from the US. Once we finally arrived at the castle the day before the wedding, we were amazingly impressed on the amount of work they had done to get every detail (even the ones we didn't even consider) in place for our special day. I would recommend this place to everyone for weddings, a weekend getaway or any other event.
20th Mary 2017 Eimear & Conor
I couldn't begin to say enough good things about Kinnitty Castle. The staff were amazing, the food was divine and the castle itself was like taking a step back in time. From the very beginning we received professionalism and politeness. Our wedding day went by so smoothly and the staff went above and beyond what we expected. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to have our special day. I can’t even imagine what it would be like for something to go wrong on such an important day, and I have Lyndsey and the other staff members to thank for that. The day went by with a certain flow and there was absolutely no stress. We had certain expectations and they were exceeded. We had absolutely no complaints. The professionalism and quality of service just made our special day that bit more special. Thank you to you all.
4th May 2017 Angelika & Szymon
Our Wedding was amazing and all our Guests had an amazing time. Lyndsey and Simon were most helpful on our special day. Lyndsey our Wedding co-coordinator was absolutely fantastic from the start. The food was top class and we loved the Great Hall for the ceremony. It was a very emotional day. We loved the venue because we had amazing photographs and our guests fell in love with the Castle.
29th April 2017 Jenni & Jason
We got married and had our wedding reception in Kinnitty Castle last month. We cannot recommend Kinnitty highly enough. Everything was just how we imagined our wedding day to be and there were elements that exceeded our expectations. We would like to thank Wayne, Lyndsey, Simon and all the team who were involved in making our day perfect. These guys are fantastic at what they do. Throughout the planning process, they provided excellent service, advice and accommodated any request we had. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day. They told us how they loved the venue, the food and the quality of the Guinness! Those who stayed the night in the Castle mentioned how unique the rooms were and enjoyed the breakfast the next morning. There is a very special atmosphere at Kinnitty Castle. Wishing all the team at the Castle continued success in the future.
21st April 2017 Lorraine & Gareth
To all the staff at Kinnitty Castle, we would like to thank you for providing a premium service. Our guests had a great time, venue and banquet hall rocked, food was excellent and customer service was exceptional. Thank you for helping create a wonderful experience.
25th March 2017 Stanley & Diana
Great venue! Staff are extremely helpful! Lovely food and drink.
16th March 2017 Georgina & Fergus
What can I say. Every single aspect of our wedding in Kinnitty, from our first meeting with Lyndsey and Simon put us immediately at ease! I want to do it all again it was all so perfect. Special shout out to Lyndsey, always on hand to help and the chef needs a big bravo. The food is unreal. Delighted to be the first bride in since the hotel was done up. Everything is so beautiful. Thank you all sooooo much from the bottom of our hearts.
17th December 2016 Caroline & Dermot
Wow, we got married in Kinnitty Castle on the 17.12.16. Words cannot explain how amazing the day was. The hotel was a perfect venue for our winter wedding. The food and service was amazing. Our guests were blown away by the room. The staff were amazing from our very first call right through to check out. Lindsay, Simon and the team could not do enough for us. I would highly recommend this intimate venue for any couple getting married. We went to see over 40 venues but Kinnitty was perfect in every possible way. Thank you so, so much.
3rd December 2016 Brenda & Chris
Got married last week here and the staff and castle was unbelievable. The staff were perfect and nothing was left to chance. Both Simon and Lyndsey were always nearby and if we needed them they were beside us. The food was amazing and all our guests had a wonderful time. Would strongly recommend for a unique wedding and one everyone who attends will remember!
24th November 2016 Lianne & Dan
We just want to say a massive thank you for everything you, Lyndsey and all your staff did for us. The whole day was perfect and ran as smoothly as we hoped. All of our guest have said what a wonderful place it was and said it was like a fairytale wedding. The food on the day was exceptional and couldn’t fault a thing. We couldn’t tell you first hand what the canapés were like (as we didn’t get chance to try any) but are friends and family said they went down a treat. The service from all of your staff won’t be forgotten and also your kind gesture of giving us 5 minutes together just to sit down and talk and relax was much appreciated. All in all everything was perfect and will definitely be recommending you for weekend breaks and of course weddings.
11th November 2016 Jenna & Paul
We got married here on Friday 11th November, it was the most amazing day of our lives, all of the amazing people in this castle couldn't do enough for us, we were so calm and relaxed and all went so smoothly, I can’t say enough about Lyndsey she is a super star. Thank you so much for everything you did for us Lyndsey our day was outstanding. Also Simon was absolutely fantastic in making sure all went smoothly and made sure of it, he was on the ball the whole weekend, absolutely fantastic you are a pleasure Simon.
The ladies on reception are just amazing too, Orla and Helen you were both amazing, amazing with me on my day and the months before, nothing was a problem for you, thank you all so much. I also dealt with Sharon, Eimear and Clair all who were just incredible in the help they gave, I couldn’t believe how relaxed we both were on the day, the staff in this hotel are exceptional and so welcoming, thank you.
There is one special lady I have to strongly mention, That was Siobhan Bradley, Siobhan’s name was given to us by Lyndsey, she babysits in the hotel, she is an angel!! We have a 3 year old and we were quite nervous that he would not settle with anybody that he didn’t know as he can be quite clingy, well that was no issue. As soon as he met Siobhan he just clicked with her, she is an absolute gem, I can’t stress this enough Siobhan was a saviour on our weekend, because of you Siobhan my whole family were just so relaxed, you really made it for us, thank you so much. I cannot recommend Siobhan Bradley enough, she is the best, if you need a babysitter in Kinnitty Castle, you will be thrilled with her a wonderful woman.
This place is an absolute dream wedding venue, it is so personal, beautiful, the food is outstanding, the wedding room is stunning and my guests had an absolute blast. It’s our favourite place in Ireland hands down. This was my 6th time here I cannot wait to come back. Thank you all so much we had the best wedding in the world.
5th November 2016 Aisling & Peter
We loved every minute of our wedding day. The venue was brilliant and the guests really loved it. The food was fantastic and everyone said it was the best food they'd had at any wedding. Lyndsey was also brilliant , she is an excellent co-ordinator and she made our day run very smoothly. Peter's brother works in a restaurant and he commented on how well she co-ordinated the staff during the dinner. All in all, we couldn't have asked for better and we will definitely be back many times in the future.
29th October 2016 Irina & Keith
Our wedding in KinnittyCastle was an absolute dream come true, now, 3 months later, our guests are still talking about the day and a breathtaking venue. Absolutely every detail, from delicious dinner to gorgeous flowers, from beautiful unique guest accommodations to extremely helpful and friendly staff exceeded our expectations. The second day bbq and live music was just so much fun, everyone enjoyed every second of it. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you, Kinnitty Castle! We'll definitely be back for anniversary celebrations!
27th October 2016 Sarah & Gary
We had a fantastic wedding at Kinnitty Castle. The staff were so attentive and incredibly helpful and they made our guests feel so welcome and at home. Nothing was too much trouble- from ensuring specific dietary requirements were met to arranging then rearranging the bedroom guest list as per my instructions. The reception went so smoothly - Simon was on hand to guide us through the day and his gentle manner kept us calm and free from stress for the entire time. The food was exceptional! The guests were raving about the canapés which were served when we arrived back to the hotel from the church. The 4 course meal was incredible - not one person had a complaint to make! In the run up to the wedding we mostly used email to communicate. Our emails were answered practically immediately so any queries we had were resolved instantly meaning no stress! The rooms are amazing. If you like the splendour of Olde Worlde then Kinnitty Castle is the place for you! The giant four poster bed I stayed in on the eve of the wedding was beautiful, not to mention the fabulous hand carved bed in the bridal suite. It's by no means a run of the mill hotel where every corridor is identical to the next. Our guests had fantastic fun exploring the different corridors - it's actually a castle, not a castle on the outside and a regular hotel on the inside. It's a real castle! I genuinely can't fault any aspect of our wedding at Kinnitty. The staff were amazing, particularly Clair, Helen and Simon; the food was exceptional; the venue was breathtaking.
22nd October 2016 Ronan & Mary
We had a fabulous wedding day at Kinnitty Castle last month. The day went so well and all our guests had a brilliant time, as did we! All the Kinnitty staff were very helpful, both on the day & with the wedding organising. The food was lovely and the reception rooms looked great.
They even managed to get the sun to shine on our wedding day :)
21st October 2016 Sarah & Patrick
Kinnitty Castle is without a doubt the best wedding venue in Ireland. My husband and I were blown away with the service the hotel provided us on the day. The staff were exceptional and could not be faulted for their service and help on our special day. Our wedding had plenty of children there and unlike other venues that struggle to accommodate them the staff at Kinnitty were great and looked after all the children's needs. The hotel and grounds are magical, the possibilities for photographs are endless. The food was spectacular and all our guests thought the same. The accomodation at Kinnitty is fantastic, it has an array of rooms to suit every need. A special mention must be made to Simon the wedding coordinator at Kinnitty who made our day run smoothly and who was always there if we needed anything, he was amazing. Thank you all the staff at Kinnitty Castle for an amazing day, Sarah and Paddy.
15th October 2016 Tamara & Thomas
We got married in Kinnitty on the 15th of October this year and it exceeded all of our expectations. The food was amazing the staff and service were fantastic. The venue looked impeccable and everyone from my grandparents down to our children had an absolutely magical two days. We could not have dreamed of a more amazing weekend. I cannot recommend Kinnitty highly enough. Thank you.
14th October Martha & Des
We loved everything about Kinnitty Castle. The staff & service was outstanding, and nothing we asked was too much trouble. We had the most brilliant day, the venue is extraordinarily beautiful so it really doesn't matter what the weather is like outside. Our guests raved about the rooms, the medieval decor, the authenticity of the castle and the friendliness of everyone there. Highly recommended - we can't wait to go back for our anniversary.
30th September 2016 Saoirse & Damien
When looking at wedding venues all we knew as a couple was that we did not want the "run of the mill" venue. And that is exactly what Kinnitty Castle is! The wedding team (Simon & Lyndsey) and the staff over all bent over backwards for our two day stay eg: From allowing us do a night time "treasure hunt" for the children that attended to a large "pre wedding dinner" nothing was out of the question. Our food was exceptional. Best two days ever!
16th September 2016 Michelle & Niall
Our wedding day was the best day ever and Kinnitty is the most beautiful venue. Food was second to none, I have received so many compliments about this ever since. And also, the service was suburb. The staff are all friendly , professional and are willing to help in any way they can. I cannot thank Kinnittys staff and wedding coordinators enough. They really ensured everything went smoothly on the day! I would happily recommend Kinnitty castle to anyone, it is in a beautiful location, the premises is wonderful, the staff are brilliant and the food is amazing - what more could anyone want!!!! Our family and friends also loved our banquet table, this is an unusual style and people have raved about it!!!! It's very different and we were delighted we could have this on the day! All I want now, is to rewind the clock and repeat the big day!!
20th August 2016 Rebecca & Stephen

11th August 2016 Amy & Ruaidhri
We were absolutely delighted with every aspect of our wedding reception at Kinnitty Castle. It was well organised and ran smoothly, the food was great and the staff were all so lovely and helpful. So many of our guests complimented every aspect of the day. The beautiful, quirky interior of the castle ensured that even the wet weather didn't affect anyone's enjoyment of the day and that there were plenty of great places for wedding photos. Thanks again to Simon and all the crew for all their help. Ruaidhrí & Amy
4th August 2016 Kelly & Trevor
Simon and his team were amazing. We had a very small wedding, but the service they provided was exceptional. They made our day really special and one to remember for a lifetime. Nothing was too much trouble and detail was planned to perfection. Simon I can’t thank you enough! Regards Kelly and Trevor Cushen.
30th July 2016 Fidelma & Niall

17th July 2016 Stephanie & Adam
Adam and I would like to extend our thank you to Simon and all the staff at Kinnity Castle. We had a magical wedding day at the castle, it was so beautiful and romantic. The staff and venue at Kinnity castle exceeded our expectations. The food was delicious, the venue looked spectacular and the hotel staff were extremely thoughtful and were so willing to help us at any time. The bridal suite is majestic and we were delighted with our custom gift from the castle also. We would recommend this beautiful castle to couples that are looking for a pace that is steeped in history and elegance. The photos we had take at the castle and timeless and beautiful. A big thank you to Simon the manager who was so obliging from the time we first started to email. We are looking forward to returning to visit and remember our very special day! Adam and Steph

Our wedding in Kinnitty Castle Hotel totally exceeded our expectations. We had an amazing day as did all our guests. Thank you! Tara and Mark Dunne.
8th July 2016 Phillip & Susan
From the moment we considered Kinnitty Castle as our wedding venue we fell in love with it. We loved everything about the hotel the history, the grounds and the hotel itself. It was our fairytale. As soon as we booked it we could not wait until our day arrived. Simon, Lindsey, Helen, Sharon to name a few were an absolute pleasure to deal with. By far the best customer service I've come across at any establishment. Our wedding day was amazing the Kinnitty team done a great job. Food was exceptional and we are still hearing great feedback about it. You accommodated us on every detail. I could not recommend you guys enough. Thanks so much for making our day one we will never forget. My only disappointment is its all over now. Philip and Suzie x
2nd July 2016 Gavan & Sharron
Just a little note to give you and the entire staff of the fabulous Kinnitty Castle a massive thank you for helping us have an incredible wedding day with you all. Your help, assistance and advice throughout the whole process was exemplar. You should be very proud of all the staff who just couldn't put a foot wrong and were all so helpful, courteous and friendly.
I have to make a special thank you to Helen on reception, not a greater person could you meet as you entry the castle and a pure joy to deal with on the phone between room allocations and recommendations. It is little surprise that I and two of my brothers gave her a big hug each on the morning of the wedding. Helen also organised the clay pigeon shooting that morning which we thoroughly enjoyed. As we say in Dublin....'she's a deadly bird'. Thank you Helen.
Please give my thanks to Mary for the magnificent table settings in the Great Hall of the O'Carroll's...it was pure magical, beyond our wildest dreams and for assisting in the name cards too.
Our complements to the chef and the kitchen staff for our gorgeous meal. Everybody really enjoyed it.
I am sure you have heard it all before but I would like to let you know how so impressed every single guest was the castle, their rooms, the food, the incredible Dungeon Bar and the staff. I know for a fact that Kinnitty Castle will be receiving several returning guests not to mention ourselves for sure.
We just cannot praise Kinnitty Castle and all her staff for all their hard work and beautiful surroundings. Nothing but great memories it will always conjure for us.
See you soon and God bless you all.
Gavan & Sharron
1st July 2016 Lyndsey & Kevin
Simon, Lyndsey and the team were so nice to deal with. The castle is all you could want in castle, elegant, charming and full of character. We felt like royalty all day, and didn't have to worry or stress about a thing as it was all taken care of.
