"We had a wonderful memorable Wedding Day at Waterford Castle. We cannot thank Wedding and Events Manager, Gillian and all the team enough for contributing to make it such an enjoyable celebration. From the planning to the day itself, all the staff could not have been any more helpful. The Castle is an amazing setting which we and all of our family and friends thoroughly enjoyed throughout the day. Waterford Castle will always be a special place to us. Thank you to all the team, for making our Wedding such a memorable occasion."

"From start to finish we had the best weekend of our lives! The meal the night before was divine and a perfect start to the celebrations, we were looked after so well by Wedding Manager, Gillian and the team the morning of the wedding. The attention to detail throughout the day was impeccable. Everyone has commented on how good the food was and how beautiful the Castle is! Our day two once again exceeded all our expectations and was done up like another wedding. We were so well looked after by all and would do it again in a heartbeat."
Megan & Alan (January 2024)
Waterford Castle Resort
“From the moment we first viewed Waterford Castle until the last moment we left the Island after our wedding, we were continually awed and in love with Waterford Castle. All our guests commented on the amazing venue, the incredible ambience of a winter wedding in a beautiful Castle and that the food was plentiful and incredible! Gillian was fantastic through the whole experience! We’ve never met someone so organised and determined to make the whole thing as easy as possible for us. All the staff treated us like the Castle was our home for the weekend of the wedding - they were fantastic! We would highly recommend Waterford Castle for your wedding!”

“We had a fantastic wedding at Waterford Castle, the guests were blown away by the beautiful venue, the fantastic food and the accommodation particularly the Lodges.”
Fiona & Johnny (December 2023)
Waterford Castle Resort
“Waterford Castle was the perfect venue for our Christmas wedding. From start to finish, the whole wedding felt so special and exclusive knowing that we were the only guests in the Castle for those 24 hours of the wedding. Gillian and Shona were a dream to work with and so helpful from the many emails due to planning a wedding from abroad and then the in-person meetings as well nothing was ever a problem. The venue looked spectacular with the Christmas decorations making the whole back drop to the wedding amazing. Our guests loved every second of the day and it felt like a cosy private venue just for us. Thank you so much to all of the team in Waterford Castle from the food, staff, rooms and service it was all amazing and we would definitely recommend to anyone who is considering hosting their wedding here.”
Emma & Liam (August 2023)
Waterford Castle Resort
“We were truly delighted we choose Waterford Castle for our wedding. We had a 3-day event with golf the day before and a barbecue the day after our wedding at the golf club and all 3 days went off without an issue. It really felt like a little holiday for us and our guests on the Island. The self-catering Lodges were excellent value and meant our guests could stay for the whole weekend. Gillian is super organised, experienced, and very good at her job. Her communication was excellent which was essential as we live abroad. She kept us on track with our planning with regular updates. She had thought of details and had them sorted without us even realising. She was integral to how smoothly and stress free the day went. We loved our wedding day, the venue is spectacular and truly has a Castle feel, the food was done to a really high standard, the staff were friendly and accommodating.”
Caitriona & James (July 2023)
Waterford Castle Resort
“We had our wedding at Waterford Castle in July 2023. We were left speechless by how amazing the day was and everyone is still talking about our Wedding now. Everything went perfectly, and we wouldn't change a thing. Gillian our Wedding Planner and the fantastic team at Waterford Castle deserve immense credit for the work they put in to make our day so special. From the minute you drive onto the boat to reach the Island to the time you leave the staff could not do anymore for you. The accommodation at the Castle and Lodges were immaculate, the food was magnificent, and our dream wedding became a reality. We cannot recommend Waterford Castle and the team highly enough.”
Lucy & Scott (June 2023)
Waterford Castle Resort
“Our wedding at Waterford Castle can be summed up in one word. Exquisite. Every single detail was absolutely perfection. We had the most incredible experience planning with Gillian, she guided us through every turn and helped every single step of the way. That dedication and thoughtfulness led to the most incredible day of our lives. The staff were absolutely magical, their courteousness and lovely presence resonated with our guests and the compliments were enormous. We had a huge number traveling in for the wedding and everyone was welcomed so warmly. Every single room in the Castle itself and the Lodges were beautiful, so gorgeously decorated and comfortable. We spent 3 days at the Castle and the wedding day was so seamless, we could not have pictured a more beautiful celebration. Thank you so very much for making our most wonderful dreams come true.”
Aoife & Micheál (November 2022)
Waterford Castle Resort
“We cannot praise the team at Waterford Castle highly enough. No request was too big or small. We were organising much of our wedding from the UK, but Gillian made everything so easy and stress free. The grounds and the Castle itself are absolutely stunning – they were the perfect setting for our Autumn Winter wedding. All of our guests commented on the gorgeous food, setting and accommodation. If you are considering Waterford Castle as a wedding venue, then we would recommend booking! Thanks again so much to Gillian and team for making the happiest day of our lives so special.”
Eoin & Alan (October 2022)

“Where to begin...Waterford Castle is a dream venue. All in all, we wouldn't change a single thing about our day at Waterford Castle. They all helped us to create the most magical memories and we couldn't be more grateful! Go and see it and be wowed...”
Lesley & Nick (October 2022)
Waterford Castle Resort
“The staff at Waterford Castle were a pure joy to work with. The entire weekend was truly magical, and everything ran so smoothly and to the highest standard. The planning process from start to finish was seamless. Our guests were in awe of the venue and the grounds, and we all felt like we were on our own magical private Island for the weekend. Ample accommodation both within the Castle and the Lodges meant that all our guests were able to stay with us on the Island for the weekend. The friendly and professional welcome from all the staff really added to the experience."
Emma & Chris (November 2021)
Waterford Castle Resort
"What a weekend! Third time lucky but our wedding was worth the wait and we got lucky that our third attempt fell during the time with no curfew. The Island was the perfect venue for our 100 guests to enjoy the wedding in the Castle followed by the afters in the golf clubhouse the next day. Everyone was blown away by the Castle and all of the facilities. Gillian guided us with great advice throughout the pandemic so that when the time came it was everything we looked forward to and more."
Miriam & David (November 2021)
Waterford Castle Resort
“Waterford Castle made our wedding day as special and stress-free as could be possibly imagined. Gillian and the entire team made sure that everything ran smoothly from start to finish leaving us to enjoy the day and soak up the special atmosphere of this magical place.”
Linda & Keelan (July 2021)
Waterford Castle Resort
"When we first visited Waterford Castle, we were taken aback by its Island location, beautiful setting and, of course, by the magnificent Castle itself. But it wasn’t until we met the staff that we truly fell in love with the place. The warmth, kindness and consideration they showed us, from beginning to end, really helped to make the occasion extra special. Gillian, in particular, was absolutely wonderful at helping us to prepare, and then accomplish, the wedding of our dreams. From making brilliant suggestions to carrying out the finest details from our requests, she was integral to making the day flow as we wanted. Having someone with that kind of experience and attention to detail allowed us to completely relax and enjoy the day, knowing that everything was going to work as we wanted."
Denise & Gordon (September 2020)
Waterford Castle Resort
"We cannot thank Gillian and all of the staff in Waterford Castle enough for all they did to make our special day one of the most memorable days of our lives. We wanted and needed for nothing throughout our weekend. Our guests were so well cared for. The venue and estate are beyond magical. The food was fantastic, the service was amazing. From the very first time we met Gillian, nothing was too much trouble, everything was possible - we knew we had found our venue! Gillian thought of everything, her professionalism and attention to detail left nothing to chance. She had a handle on everything from the days leading up to the wedding right up until she helped me with the final finishing touches before I walked up the aisle, you could say she was an honorary bridesmaid/wedding planner and friend all rolled into one. We cannot recommend Waterford Castle enough for your special day, they literally made us feel like we were the King and Queen of our very own Castle!"
Elaine & Cormac (February 2020)
Waterford Castle Resort
"Cormac and I had our wedding at Waterford Castle February 2020. From start to finish Gillian made our experience extremely special, she was always at the end of a phone no matter what we needed. I stayed the night before the wedding with my sister and again we were given first class treatment. On the morning of the wedding special attention was given to us, Gillian was there to oversee everything. Lunch with Prosecco was delivered to our Suite which was so lovely as it brought everyone together. Everything was perfect, the ceremony, the music seeing family and friends having a wonderful time. The choice of menus was excellent and the wine was perfect. We continued partying until the early hours, it’s great to have the Castle as a private venue for the entire night. We played golf the next day to continue with the festivities."
Michelle & Alan (January 2020)
Waterford Castle Resort
"I have just returned from spending 2 nights at Waterford Castle for my wedding, no matter what I say here, I probably won’t do the hotel, the staff and Gillian justice. We arrived the day before, and had an informal evening in the bar with bar food, all of which was amazing. I stayed in the Lodges the night before, as did some of our guests, we could not fault them, and the value is fantastic as was remarked on by our guests. The hotel rooms are fantastic old worldly, and couldn’t be faulted. The staff and the setting of the Castle made a big day for us more than memorable, and I can’t thank them enough for that with a special thanks to Gillian (I hope I’m half as good at my job as she is at hers)."
Aideen & Fergal (December 2019)
Waterford Castle Resort
"The Castle was beautifully decorated and the ambiance on the day was so special, having the Castle to yourself on the day is wonderful. The staff are kind, friendly and each and every one provides a top-class service. We were a very happy (and confident) couple arriving the day before our wedding and handing our wedding over to Gillian and her team who were fantastic, calm and nothing was too much trouble or a problem for them. So many guests complimented the beautiful food and staff - as well as the venue - we wish we could do it all again!"
Jordan & Steven (October 2019)
Waterford Castle Resort
"Planning an overseas destination wedding can be a daunting task, but from the beginning the Waterford Castle staff made it so incredibly easy. From the arrival to the Castle to the day we left, everything was perfect. On the day of our wedding, I did not have to worry about one thing and was just able to enjoy the day completely. The staff was prompt, the food was amazing, and the bar was a great time. We had many guests enjoy golfing, clay shooting, and archery on the Castle grounds that the staff helped coordinate, which everyone loved! I would pick Waterford Castle over and over again for my wedding venue. It was breathtakingly beautiful and truly a fairy-tale experience made possible by the wonderful staff."
