We were absolutely delighted to host our Green Flag for Parks awards event with you and what better location than Killeavy Castle. Not only a really beautiful place but importantly one that embodies the spirit and ethos of the important environmental work our charity is working tirelessly to champion across Northern Ireland. 24 July 2023

Carol Foster, Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful

Just a note to say a HUGE thank you to you all for the superb hospitality you showed to Around Noon and our guests during our 3-day event in November. I cannot speak highly enough of each and every staff member we met and who looked after us so well from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone was on hand to be as helpful as possible. We have received so much positive and warm feedback from our customers, who all thoroughly enjoyed the event and their time at Killeavy Castle Hotel.

Emma Donnelly, Around Noon

I just want to say a huge thank you to you and your team. The night went amazing and everyone was seriously impressed with everything from the beautiful surroundings to the food, there was not one fault! You are all brilliant and I am sure there will be many events in the Castle over the years!
