Wedding Couple July 2016

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

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

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 March 2016

Just a quick word to express our thanks for all the hard work that yourself and all the staff put in to help make our big day so special. The food, service and staff were exceptional.
We had a wonderful time
Thanking ye,

Mr & Mrs McCormack Summer 2015

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

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

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

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

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

Aoife & John - August 2014

"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"

Laura & Tom - Summer 2014

"The wedding reception room with patio doors leading out to the terrace, with kilkenny castle and the river nore as a back drop, was the perfect setting for our wedding day....we wanted an elegant but relaxed and fresh feel to our day and Una, Martin and the team were great at brainstorming ideas, advising on practicalities! and accommodating our plans both in the lead up to and on the day.
We had a fantastic, beautiful and fun day and would like to take the opportunity to say a big thank you to all the staff at the rivercourt for all their hard work that ensured such and smooth and worry-free day!!"

Trip Advisor Review June 2012

"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.
The manager, Martin, was professional and efficient from the moment we met him and really took any pressure off us on our day. We have been back numerous times since then to eat in the restaurant where the food and service is always fantastic.
A definite 5 star experience".
