Wedding date: 6th December 2020 From the moment we viewed Rathsallagh we had an instant warm feeling and knew we wanted to get married here. Due to Covid 19 we had to postpone our original date and the support and guidance the team at Rathsallagh offered was much appreciated. Their help and advice was much needed during the uncertainty this year and even prior to Covid their support was brilliant. We had the best day and wouldn't change anything now looking back. All our guests commented on the venue and especially the staff. Everyone in Rathsallagh was so helpful and accommodating they couldn't have done more. Even though our original date was in Summer we felt Rathsallagh was also the perfect venue for a Winter wedding due to the picturesque grounds. The wedding team, Stephen, Catherine, Gillian and of course Joe are absolute dreams to work with whose experience is a calming reassurance. We look forward to returning and staying again.
Wedding date 12th December 2020 We must have viewed at least 10 venues at in the beginning. None of the ones before Rathsallagh felt right and any we viewed after felt like a waste of time after seeing all they had to offer. From the house itself, to the ceremony rooms and the grounds which we had exclusively to ourselves. In what must have been an exceptionally stressful time for them, Joe and The Wedding Team could not have done more for us. They kept us constantly informed of how our day would look depending on how many guests would be permitted. The day itself was more perfect than we could have imagined. All our guests commented on the quality of the food and how attentive the staff were. Our hardest decision was what food to leave off the menu after our tasting evening! No request was too big or small. We can't wait to visit again once everything gets back to normal.
Wedding date 20th December 2020 We had viewed a number of venues but as soon as we arrived in Rathsallagh we knew it was where we would get married. The food, fires, staff, Granary (ceremony room), decor, the high level of cleanliness all set it above anywhere else we had viewed. Having the house to ourselves for our wedding day made it so special too. We got married in December 2020. We were meant to get married in June 2020 but couldn't because of national restrictions. So really we planned a summer and winter wedding. It's the best venue for both. The gardens are amazing in the summer and then the big log fires and cozy feel in the winter make it the best venue whatever the season. As COVID-19 national restrictions changed throughout the year, we were kept well informed by regular email updates from Joe. Stephen went above and beyond answering any questions we had and sorting whatever needed to be done too. We all had the best day in December. Our guests are still contacting us about what a great day they had. Thanks so much Stephen, Jonathan, Martha, Shane and everyone in Rathsallagh for everything.
