Our wedding day was on Saturday last in the Kilkenny Rivercourt. To say we had the perfect day is an understatement. From start to finish the service was impeccable, the food was to the highest standard and the room I didn't want to leave! Darragh was a pleasure to deal with during the run up to our big day and Brian kept it all running smoothly on the day itself. I could not recommend the s Rivercourt highly enough to anyone planning a wedding and wish we could do it all over again!
Thanks again to you all.

Amy & Tommy Wedding Day August 2017

So our big day came and went. It was the best day ever and it's all down to the incredible staff here. Every staff member played an amazing part especially Colm and Darragh. We cannot thank you enough. From the time I booked our wedding you couldn't have been more helpful. Everything I wanted to do was accommodated. I would highly recommend this venue to anyone getting married or just looking for a night away. It is absolutely beautiful and I'm so glad that I got to get married outside. Every wish I had was granted and we will be forever grateful to the wonderful people at the Rivercourt. Even the guests commented on how great they were. Thanks for giving us the best day of our lives xx

Janet & John Wedding October 2017

Thank You to Darragh and team at the River Court Hotel. Both John & I felt like absolute royalty on the day of our wedding. I couldn't compliment the hotel enough on food, service and general atmosphere. We adored the bridal suite, it is really the height of luxury. The wonderful addition of the evening lighting on the terrace made for some fabulous photos. All of our guests have repeatedly told us what a great day they had and many said they would return again.

Mother of the Bride for her Daughter Anne

Have been at two weddings here in the past 3 weeks, one of which was my own daughters. Couldn't fault them on anything. Food was excellent, staff are amazing here, so attentive. Nothing is too much for them. Us Teaholics need our fix whenever and it was got no problem. Rooms are fabulous and comfy. Definitely stay here again and again. And the views are to die for.

Sorcha & Bryan August 2017

I really don't know where to begin on the Journey of our wedding in the RiverCourt Hotel. We met with Una the wedding co-ordinator who from the start just made me feel so excited about our Wedding. They could not have done enough for us. We then had a few conversations with Darragh who is the soundest guy you can meet. We had a great laugh with him and made us feel like we were the only people in the world on that day. Colm who looked after us on the day of our Wedding was amazing from start to finish. He was on the ball and at the end of the day that is what you need. He again was great fun and we had a good laugh with him. There was no messing about they got the Job done and I could not recommend this Hotel Highly enough. All of my guest could not stop talking about the amazing food and fast service was. I had guest saying from England who said they had never been in a Hotel that gave such great Customer Service. When I pass this Hotel every day I just remember the Best Day of my life and I thank each and every staff member who helped us and made it such a memorable day. Thanks Gang xx Sorcha & Bryan 25th of Aug 2017.

Garry & Nicola June 2017 Wedding

Garry and Nicola June 2017

Diarmuid & Josh June 2017 Wedding

Diarmuid & Josh - We had our wedding on 2nd June 2017 and I have to say the staff could not do enough for you. Every one of them was excellent and so friendly. The Food was just top class and the venue could not have been better. The crowning glory for us was the fact that we had our Wedding Ceremony outdoors and the weather that day was splitting the rocks. I have no hesitation recommending Kilkenny Rivercourt Hotel to anybody looking to get married there. 5 * from myself and Josh and a special thank you to Darragh and his team, to Colm our MC for the night, just perfect. Look forward to coming back next for our 2-night complimentary stay.

Paul & Emily Nelson September 2016 Wedding

Paul and I are back from honeymoon and well settled back to the normality of working life! 

Firstly, I want to apologise for the delay in sending you on our words of heartfelt thanks.

We honestly don’t know where to start in thanking you, James, Colm and all the team at the hotel for helping us make our wedding day on the 3rd September, and the entire weekend the most memorable days of our lives.  Hilary, you were a huge support to us in the lead up to the day, always so professional and extremely friendly, there was nothing you couldn’t advise us on.  We didn’t have a thing to worry about, we knew we were in great hands. 

James and Colm couldn’t have done any more for us, they both were absolutely brilliant and really added to the enjoyment of our day.

We received so much positive feedback from our guests and everyone was complimentary about the food, atmosphere, service and the hotel in general.  I can honestly say that is all down to the hardworking staff. 

The bridal suite was absolutely gorgeous and we could not have asked for more for our Wedding Day. 

Please pass on our thanks to all the staff.  The River Court will always hold a special place in our hearts.

We would have no hesitation in recommending the River Court as a wedding venue to anyone.  

We both look forward to returning to the hotel in future.

Thank you again for everything,

Paul & Emily - 3rd September 2016

Wedding Couple July 2016 Wedding

Best Day of our lives.........

We recently held our wedding reception at The River Court Hotel.......what can I say??? Everything was fantastic, from the pre-wedding meetings, food, service, accommodation, the hotel staff paid particular interest to our needs and the needs of our guests. We had a pre-wedding tasting of the menu, me being fussy wanted to go back again and taste something else and this was absolutely no problem at all. We had over 180 guests and our food was served promptly and hot and of course delicious!! Two of our guests got called away form the table to tend to their little boy and the staff took the dinners back. The couple returned later than anticipated, and two fresh dinners were brought out from the kitchen. A big thank you to James who looked after us on the evening and especially Hilary, The River Court's fantastic wedding coordinator, who without her help and support, we would have been lost. Hilary made our day very special by doing a fabulous job in the lead up to the day and nothing was too much. Any questions we had were answered promptly and we did torment the team a bit!! We couldn't fault The River Court Hotel in any way and we are looking forward to returning to the most beautiful view of the castle. Mr. & Mrs. M

Wedding Couple June 2016 Wedding

Just wanted to give a quick note to say thank you to all the team at Kilkenny Rivercourt Hotel for looking after us on our wedding day June 10th.  We had one of the best days of our lives and the staff at the hotel throughout the entire weekend made it extra special for us.

Everyone was so accommodating and friendly, I didn't catch the lady's name but during the meal she looked after our little girl who's 2, even though we had our own babysitters all she wanted was this lady she loved her!! 

Again I'm terrible for names but the 2 guys looking after us on the day at our dinner reception were unreal, we had right laughs and banter with them and anything we requested was granted.

All our guest expressed how much they enjoyed the food, family and friends which stayed at the hotel loved the rooms and of course the backdrop was just amazing.

I wish you and all the staff the very best of luck and keep doing great work, Rivercourt will hold a special place in our hearts and I cant wait to go back time and time again.

Wedding Couple May 2016 Wedding

Greetings from Dublin airport where we are waiting to fly off on honeymoon!

Before we go we just wanted to drop you both a quick line to say thank you. We had a fantastic day on Friday. A lot of our guests have commented on how tasty the food was and how good the service was. We found James really lovely to deal with and he ran the day like clockwork without making us feel rushed at all. The service with James and Colm at the top table was perfect. We were so happy with the menu

The service in the hotel overall was excellent - we had lots of visitors in & out of the bridal suite and staff were very good at delivering everything from toothpaste to prosecco & flutes! We were delighted with how nicely our things were arranged on the cake table and details like the flowers on the tables.

We had an amazing day and didn't even let the rain dampen our spirits out in Ballykeeffe!

Wedding Couple May 2016 Wedding

Thank you for your email!!!! We had a fabulous wedding day and I'd like to take opportunity to highly praise the staff that were on duty as they were highly attentive and looked after us and our guests well so hats off!!!!

We had a wonderful time
Thanking ye,

Mr & Mrs McCormack Summer 2015 Wedding

We can't praise yourself and the Rivercourt Hotel enough with the organising of our wedding.  We were concerned with organising the whole wedding from Perth but you made it very easy and answered all our emails and questions very promptly.  I was rarely waiting for a reply to an email.  On the day of the wedding the service from the staff was superb.  The staff helped out in every way they could and were very friendly. 

Everybody was raving about the food.  Nobody faulted anything about the food and there was plenty of it, from the moment people set foot in the hotel, which is what we always wanted.  Also the staff went around with seconds for meat, fish and vegetables which was fantastic.  People were saying it was the best food they'd had at a wedding.

Our wedding day with the a rivercourt Hotel was fantastic.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Rivercourt to somebody to have their wedding. Thanks 

Dec & Pauline Summer 2015 Wedding

We just got back to Toronto after a fabulous Honeymoon.

Dec and I just wanted to say thanks a million to you, and all of your team - for all that you did to make our Wedding Day so special and run so smoothly. We were delighted we chose the Rivercourt and will gladly highly recommend to our friends and family.

Many thanks again for everything.

Very best regards,

Aoife & Tim Summer 2015 Wedding

We had such an amazing Wedding day, one we will never forget. Thank you so much for all your hard work in helping us from the moment we contacted you, to the lead up to and the day itself. We are very appreciative of the work of all the staff at The Rivercourt Hotel in making it so special for us.

Siobhan & Stephen June Wedding 2015 Wedding

Myself and Stephen just want to thank you and all the staff at the hotel for your services. We had such an amazing day and everything went absolutely perfectly. All the staff were brilliant from the moment we checked in the night before until the morning after when we checked out and nothing could be faulted.

Thank you so much again for all your hard work and we will be down to visit very soon again!

June 2015 – Emma Jane & Emmet Wedding

Well we came home from our holiday on Monday and had a great time!! Its only now we are really talking to family and getting feedback from them in relation to their experience at the wedding!! Everyone had a great time and their comments about the hotel and the staff are unreal!! Like ourselves Una, we could not fault the hotel or the staff.  From the moment we arrived on the 24th nothing was a problem.  We were welcomed from the start and every single member of my family said the same.  On the day of the wedding everything just flowed brilliantly. The staff were very attentive and kept coming to myself and Emmet to check we were ok and was there anything they could do. It calmed us down an awful lot! The ceremony and the room was beautiful.  The set up of the reception after this was fantastic and then the dinner after - we couldn't get over how beautiful the room looked and a lot have commented on the tables and how beautiful they looked.  Even the simple touches of filling up glasses of water the minute they emptied to having a tray of sandwiches and crisps put in our room for when we went up later that night was unreal!!! Its these little touches that make big impressions.  Myself and Emmet will deffinatley be back to stay we love the hotel so much its like home from home for us!! Thank you so much for all the contact you maintained coming up to the wedding and any queries I had there was no problem contacting you.  It was all very relaxed from start to finish.  Thank you Una and if you could pass on the message to the rest of the staff I would appreciate that too.

Mrs & Mrs OBrien Wedding May 2015 Wedding

"When we got engaged in April 2013 we knew that we wanted to have our wedding reception in the Rivercourt Hotel.
We had been to weddings in the hotel in the past and knew that the service, food, location and staff were second to none.
On our wedding day the hotel was wonderful. The room was beautifully decorated and drinks reception on the terrace was fabulous. We really can't thank Una, Martin, Declan and the staff enough for their hard work, professionalism and general positive attitude. They facilitated our every request and were great to guide us along the right path.
Our guests and ourselves had an unforgettable day.
Thank you"

"We held our wedding in the River Court and from start to finish, all staff were a pleasure to deal with. The day ran smoothly, and nothing was a problem for any member of staff. I would highly recommend this venue to any friend or family member.
