The weekend of our wedding we cannot fault one member of staff from the time we arrived everyone was so helpful the night porter was so kind and at 4 o’clock in the morning as we headed to bed after our fantastic wedding day he asked what time we wanted our breakfast delivered at.

Stephanie & Finbar October 2019

Kilkenny Rivercourt team made our day prefect from the first time we saw this hotel we knew it was for us. Marcella and her team are extremely professional and any queries or worries were always answered without hesitation. As the day approached we were in contact with Marcella who was always on the other end of the phone to reassure us. On the day itself the service was second to none. Every table was serve at a quick speed which meant NO table was waiting on food which was a big thing for us after being to weddings were tables near back might not have being served by time other tables were ready for mains. Natalia and Dee on the day ensured everything went smoothly and we or our guests couldn't fault anything. Location wise it is the perfect location and if anyone is thinking of Kilkenny as a place they would like to have there big day then look no further the Kilkenny Rivercourt. Food was amazing and there was no shortages all of our guest have complimented the food and the service. If we could do it all again there isn't 1 thing we would change about our venue 

Christina & Brian September 2019

We had our wedding in The Rivercourt Hotel in September and loved every minute of it. We booked our wedding with the hotel early 2018 and from the booking up to the wedding day the hotel helped us with so many parts of our planning. Anytime we had a question Marcella was there to help us out and offer advice, and once we had to start confirming the finer details closer to the day Marcella was again a huge help. Everything we asked for was looked after and the service we received from the hotel on the day was fantastic. Natalia was absolutely brilliant too. She put us completely at ease from the minute we arrived at the hotel, she ensured the day ran smoothly and did everything she possibly could to look after us and our guests. We had been concerned about some of time constraints on the day but Natalia kept us updated on everything, put us at ease and ensured we had the time we needed. We were so thankful for her on the day and really appreciate everything she did for us. We would 100% recommend The Rivercourt Hotel to anyone planning a wedding, it was the perfect setting for our day and the staff there really looked after us. So many of our guests have commented how much they loved the hotel and everything they offered on the day.

Niamh & Garret September 2019

We had our wedding here on September 22nd. From the moment I arrived the day before to going home the day after they could not have done more for us. Our guests raved about the food, the service, the rooms and the staff. A special mention to Marcella for everything she did for us in the organising and to Natalia, Catherine and Brian on the day. Everyone was amazing but they stood out! Do not hesitate to book your wedding here!!!

Barisa & Ray August 2019

We were so lucky to be able to have our wedding in this beautiful place. On the nice day there is no better place for wedding in Kilkenny and probably not many in Ireland! From the very beginning we felt massive support from RC event team. No task was to big, no question was left an answered, we were receiving phone calls from Sinead or Marcela asking about our preparations which was a lovely touch and made us feel a little bit more special???? We loved everything about the day, food was great, service was stunning, and just an option of sitting out looking at the castle was more than enough to confirm we made the best choice! Special thanks to Sinead, as an unexperienced wedding planners we had no idea where to start, what to do next, what's very important, what a bit less, but Sinead made everything so easy for us that organising this wedding was a piece of cake! I would highly recommend this venue to every couple thinking about the wedding in this beautiful city

Fiona & Ian August 2019

The staff at the RiverCourt hotel made our wedding day from start to finish they helped us plan and organise in the most stress free way possible. Any request that was made to them during the whole process was greeted with “thats absolutely no problem we will take care of that”They provided amazing customer service to both me and my husband and our guests. The whole day ran so smooth all thanks to them . The food was amazing we had all our guests commenting on the quality of the food and wine and how there was plenty of it . The location of the hotel is amazing with all the doors opening onto the terrace so all our guests could be together the whole night seamlessly.

Katie & Kevin March 2019

I couldn't rate the River Court Hotel higher. The venue is beautiful, the food was brilliant, but above all, the staff were AMAZING. The one thing we kept hearing back from our guests was that the staff were so friendly, helpful and accommodating. Nothing was too small or too big, and they went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and ensure we had the best day of our lives. Definitely 5 star + treatment! I cannot express to the whole team of staff how grateful we are to them for helping to make our day so perfect! 

Demi & Danny January 2019

I want to thank you sincerely for everything leading up to the wedding and thank you to all the Rivercourt staff support. The day was just amazing everything was perfect, to say the least. The service, the staff, the food everything was just perfect.

Personally, I cannot thank you enough for putting such a beautiful smile on my sisters face, everytime I looked at her on the day/night she had the biggest smile and was having the best time - both herself and Danny were beaming on the day. Thank you for that.

I couldn't recommend your hotel highly enough and especially working with you, you were so easy to work with and always got back to any of our silly queries.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support, the hard work you put in and most especially for making my baby sisters most important day of her life one that she will always cherish and look back on so fondly!

We had our wedding in the Kilkenny Rivercourt Hotel in September and it was a truly amazing experience. From the time we booked our wedding we were looked after so well all the staff were so friendly and helpful the wedding team were always just an email or phone call away even the morning of the wedding when i had to change a table around it wasn't an issue. The reception room was spacious but intimate and the food was fabulous our guests are still talking about how good the meal was. Everyone commented on having such a great time at the wedding. The Rivercourt is a great location especially with the breath taking backdrop of kilkenny castle for photos. I would defenitely recommend to anyone getting married to check out this venue. Thanks so much to Marcella, Catherine and all at the Kilkenny Rivercourt Hotel.

Liz & Adam August 2018

We had our ceremony and reception at the Rivercourt Hotel in Kilkenny in August of this year and we had a fabulous day. The ceremony outside on the terrace was beautiful and everything ran like clockwork under Nathalya’s watchful eye. The food at the reception was delicious - we had the Asian Chicken/Tofu salad for starters and a choice of Roast Cauliflower and Goats Cheese, Sea Bream and Prawns or Roast Chicken for mains and the assiette for dessert. Throughout the day the service was exceptional and the next day we had a BBQ on the terrace which was a lovely way to relax with some of the guests who were staying around. We live in the UK so we organised the wedding mostly via email and the hotel staff from the events team to the reception and bar staff were very helpful and friendly

Jade & Alan August 2018

This was the first hotel i looked at and From the min I walk threw the doors I knew it was where I wanted to get married and have my reception. I didn't look at any other hotel I whent back and put our deposit straight away. The staff are brilliant so helpful and friendly. The set up is amazing and the work they put in to make sure your day goes smoothly is unbelievable, from start to finish they were brilliant I would highly highly recommend. And the bridle suit is really something else. Food is amazing.

Bridget & James August 2018

From the moment we arrived in the Rivercourt Hotel we knew it was the Wedding Venue for us. From the picturesque backdrop of Kilkenny Castle to the beautiful decor of the ballroom it was really special. Our Wedding Coordinator Marcella was great, very professional and always on the other end of the phone to answer any questions we had. The Wedding Day itself from start to finish was the best day of our lives. The minute we arrived at the hotel Dee met us outside with our drinks and a warm welcome. From the pre reception to the main dinner the food was amazing and plenty of it. We are still getting complements on how beautiful the food was. The staff at reception, barmen and women, waiters and waitresses, accommodation and all Management were very professional but most importantly were very polite and friendly. We would like to thank Marcella and GM Catherine for such a wonderful day and keep up the great work.

Bridget & James - August 2018 

Christina & Alan August 2018

Great place, beautiful rooms and reception and the food was great. Staff and managers were amazing. I highly recommend as a venue for your wedding!!! 

Miriam & Cesar August 2018

I had my wedding in July at the Rivercourt. Staff are amazing and did everything to make our day special. Food was AMAZING. Feedback was excellent from the guests. I was initially worried, as the 1st tasting wasn't up to par. But there was a new chef who was reinventing the menu, and at the second tasting I got a taste of the new menu and was blown away. The food is Michelin quality! There were a few mishaps: I asked for a stage for the band provided by the hotel and I never got one. The final bill I got on the next day of the wedding was higher than what it should've been, but that was sorted too. All in all, I would recommend the Rivercourt,price, food and staff are superb. Bridal suite is gorgeous too! 

Sarah & Brian April 2018

Our wedding was held in the Rivercourt in April. They made us feel like royalty from start to finish. Our every need was catered for.

The layout of the hotel was perfect for our needs, it wasn't too big where we lost guests when they went to the bar, for a cigarette or to the toilets, as I have often experienced at other weddings in other hotels. Everything was nicely confined to the one area. The terrace and function rooms, as well as some guest bedrooms had a beautiful view of Kilkenny Castle.

The food was excellent from the breakfast all the way to the BBQ on the terrace after our meal.

I cannot recommend the hotel enough to anyone planning a visit to Kilkenny or anyone who is considering venues for their wedding.

Orlaith & Darragh April 2018

We had our wedding reception at the Rivercourt Hotel.
To say they went above and beyond is an understatement. Everything was amazing, and the food is still being talked about.  From the day we set our date we worked alongside Darragh and Catherine and they made it all so easy.

I would recommend to anyone to have their wedding there or stay there for a night away.

Leanne & Chris March 2018

Just a line to let you know that our wedding is now over and we are busy trying to get everything back to normal. 
We had a wonderful day and the Hotel was just fantastic, everything went on time and beautifully done, and with such friendly staff. 
Please take a bow and pass on the congrats. Everyone loved the food and the hotel itself so you will probably be seeing some people back for more.
Once again, so many thanks for making our day extra special.

Geraldine & Ger February 2018

We are delighted we chose the Rivercourt for our wedding. Everyone had a fabulous day and night, a big thanks to you and all the staff for making it such a memorable occasion.
