Wedding Testimonials

Michael and Naomi 

Our wedding at Killeavy Castle was everything we had hoped it would be and more. From our initial conversations with Ashleigh before we booked to planning in the months beforehand and then the day itself, everything was seamless. Nothing was ever too much trouble for Ashleigh to arrange at Killeavy and she was always at hand to answer questions we had, which was extremely reassuring. 

All of our guests complimented Killeavy Staff for how friendly, efficient and helpful they were during the day, and they all made comments on how beautiful the venue was; and we couldn’t agree more! 

We stayed in both the Hotel and Castle during our celebrations and both rooms were so comfortable, spotlessly clean and beautifully appointed. The food was outstanding, with many of our guests saying it was by far the best meal they had ever had at a wedding. We found Daniella to be extremely helpful on the day and she made sure our celebrations ran perfectly and that each of our guests was catered for. 

We cannot wait to return to Killeavy, and we would not hesitate to recommend future couples choose Killeavy to host their wedding, as it was truly the best day we could have wished for. Thank you so much to Ashleigh and all the team at Killeavy, you made our day so special. 


John and Lauren 

We just wanted to say that Killeavy Castle is amazing. Thank you, guys, so much for everything. 

Ashleigh was so helpful; nothing was an issue, and she answered every one of my emails so quickly and with so much information. Even when we had to change our date due to covid restrictions, Ashleigh made this date change so easy and handled it so efficiently for us. 

On the day, Danielle and all the team were fantastic, so attentive and friendly. They made the whole day flow seamlessly. All our guests were extremely complimentary of the food and service. The grounds are stunning for photographs and inside the castle has been designed and decorated so uniquely. 

Thank you to every member of staff involved for making our day so special. We enjoyed every minute and wish we could do it all over again. Thank you 


Alex and Michael

We would like to share a heartfelt thank you to all at Killeavy Castle Estate for hosting our wedding. It was an outstanding day and absolutely exceeded our expectations. The venue, staff expertise and quality of service was fantastic. 

The Castle grounds and the views are spectacular, and the castle itself is beautiful, it’s opulent yet homely. The history of the Estate, the peacocks and the cellar bar with its secret seating booths provided a unique experience; and being able to spend the night in the Castle with our family was such a treat. Our guests were very impressed, they continue to compliment us about many elements of the day and raved about the delicious food. 

We would particularly like to thank Ashleigh for assisting with the wedding coordination. Even from our initial enquiry and first visits, Ashleigh was so friendly, helpful, and promptly replied to our emails. Thank you for checking in on us during such an uncertain year for wedding planning and happily answering all my questions, no matter how weird or wonderful. 

Chris and the team who assisted on the day were excellent as well, organising our personalised decorations and looking after us all. The bar staff in the cellar bar were fantastic craic and worked so hard despite a busy bar. Even when passing a member of staff momentarily, we were made to feel so special as they congratulated us and said a few lovely words.

We are so grateful and feel very fortunate to have had the chance to celebrate our big day at Killeavy. It was a magical weekend, full of so many fond memories and we can’t wait to return for another exceptional visit.


Rebecca and Brendan

My husband and I cannot recommend Killeavy Castle Estate enough for your wedding. Not only is the venue itself absolutely stunning but every single member of staff, especially Ashleigh (Events Manager) went above and beyond to make sure we had a wedding day of dreams.

Due to these uncertain times, our wedding with Killeavy Castle was booked and planned for a total of 10 days. The staff made those 10 days super easy and made sure we were never stressed. Ashleigh and her team pulled off a miracle and we had the most stunning wedding in Killeavy Castle. We look back so fondly on our wedding day, to put it simply it was literally perfect.

Planning a wedding during COVID times could not have been simpler with Killeavy Castle. Although all safety measures were implemented and everybody remained safe, not once did it feel like we were having our dream day during a pandemic. 

Ashleigh and the staff at Killeavy Castle took our vision and brought it to life! Not only is the hotel itself spectacular but the grounds are fabulous for photographs with family and friends! It meant for us we could take our professional photographs at Killeavy Castle and enjoy more time with our guests.

Nothing was too much for Ashleigh and her team and they made sure that our wedding day went smoothly with no glitches. Our guests still talk about how amazing the food and cocktails were at our wedding. Although the Chef was catering for a wedding party it never felt that the food was mass-produced. It felt like you were eating in a small quaint restaurant and each dish was made with such love and care. 

I can’t put into words what an excellent wedding venue Killeavy Castle is, it is truly amazing!! A wedding in an Irish Castle is every little girl’s dream and Killeavy Castle is one of the best!!  The boutique feel of this hotel makes you feel at home as soon as you walk into the reception! We can’t wait to return to Killeavy Castle for our first wedding anniversary and make more memories at this gorgeous Estate. 


Ronan and Ciara

We made the right choice in selecting Killeavy Castle Estate for our wedding, it was like a fairy tale. We had an amazing day and the fact that this stunning wedding venue is based in our own area made it even more special. John, Ashleigh and their team were outstanding, everything was done exactly as asked. The attention to detail in meetings with Ashleigh made the planning process much easier and from the moment we met John we knew we were in safe hands - he was there throughout the day to guide us and keep everything running smoothly.

The venue is exquisite with a great variety of areas between the hotel, the castle and the marque - everything was exactly as we would have wanted it. The food was first class and all our guests commented on it. The staff could not have been more accommodating and we felt at home in the castle for the night.

The setting around the castle is stunning for photographs as you have the option of the caves, the wooded area and the venue itself. We could not recommend Killeavy Castle Estate highly enough.  South Armagh is a stunning area of outstanding natural beauty and Killeavy Castle Estate, nestled on Slieve Gullion, compliments and showcases that beauty perfectly. An ideal wedding venue.
