Nicola & Stephen – November 2021

We booked our wedding with the Kilkenny Rivercourt Hotel pre pandemic and we were very happy with our choice. When the pandemic kicked in and everything was falling apart wedding wise, the Kilkenny River Court stepped right up! The communication was amazing, we moved dates, we moved wedding size, nothing was ever a problem.  They were so reassuring the whole way through the planning. Marcella and Iona were so lovely to talk with, they were so professional but also like talking to friends so I always felt comfortable in discussing things with them. When it came to the day itself, one word - WOW! The service, the food, the staff, the drinks, the rooms, the ballroom - all absolutely amazing!! Our guests were all blown away as were we! We would recommend them a million times over and are looking forward to going back soon for a visit.

Ger & Mark – October 2021

Myself and Mark just wanted to drop you a line with regards to our wedding reception, which we held in the Kilkenny River Court Hotel on 28th October.  We had an absolutely smashing time!  You, Latisha and Eric could not have been more helpful.  Nothing was too much trouble and all of the staff and your team were excellent.  The food and service was brilliant and everybody that was in attendance has commented on same.  We had such a fun, relaxing time and hope you can pass on our sincerest thanks to all involved over the few days we stayed.

Nicole & Thomas - October 2021

Thank you for all your help during the lead up to our wedding. We truly had the best day, it was all we had hoped for and so much more! Every one of our guests that we spoke to had nothing but praise for the food and the service from all the staff at the Kilkenny River Court Hotel.

Thomas & Christine - September 2021

We wanted to say thank you veyr much for all the work you and everytone else put into helping us plan our wedding.  Everything this weekend was absolutely perfect and Jose, Bruno and everyone else who was around last weekend went above and beyond to make everything perfect.  Based on the service we received this weekend, we will definitely recommend the River Court to anyone who is considering you for their wedding venue in the future.  We will definitely be back soon! Big thank you again, we can't express how grateful we truly are to everyone.

Helen & Matt - August 2021

I just had to write to thank yourself and all your colleagues for the most amazing couple of days in our lives. We were blown away by the attentiveness of yourself and all the staff from the time we first met you, to when we walked from the hotel on Saturday morning.  Bruno, Jose and the team were amazing.  We really couldn't fauly anything. The meal was fab.  The Bridal Suite was fab. 

Nicola & Eoin - August 2021

We would like to thank youself and all the staff at the hotel.  The day went off without a hitch and everybody was very accommodating.  All of our guests only had posiitve things to say about the day and it really was the perfect venue for us.

Lynn & Donal - September 2020 

We just wanted to email to pass on our sincere thanks for all your hard work making our wedding day perfect. Everything ran smoothly, it was totally stress free and everyone is raving about the food! The hotel and function room are beautiful and everything was displayed perfectly. We wanted to give a special thanks to Natalia, who was so attentive on the day and if there was anything we needed she made it happen straight away without any stress. We couldn’t be happier with how the day turned out given the circumstances. 

Roisin & John - August 2020 

Anyway, we can not thank ye and the hotel enough for allowing us to have the special day again. In May when our wedding was cancelled, we were deflated and lost hope. The uncertainty of when things would be okay was awful and all we wanted to do was get married. Everyone wants to have their wedding day, it is of the best and most important days of your life and to have it taken away and not know when you can have it, was so stressful. Thankfully we found your hotel and your staff and you made it all happen for us. Iona rang me back in 5 minutes and gave me the perfect package and details for our wedding. We were so happy again. We went through another hundred changes and set backs over the few weeks, that we were waiting for the wedding and even the week of the wedding was stressful for us personally with John's dad being sick. I even sent you the table plan the night before and everything was still perfect on the day. Everyone loved the food, the setting and the atmosphere. Natalia was amazing on the day.

Everything went perfectly and we believe that everything happens for a reason. We hope to celebrate with our families next year but for now are so happy that we had our perfect little day. The staff at the hotel are just brilliant at their job. Nothing was too much for them and they made us feel like royalty. The bar staff, waiters, receptionists, banquet staff and cleaning staff all helped to make our weekend so amazing. 

Thank you so much. We can not wait to visit Kilkenny again and we will definitely come back for our anniversary next year so keep the bridal suite for us! It will be such a special place for us now, forever.

Valerie & Leonard – January 2020

We would like to thank the River court Hotel and it's wonderful team, especially Iona who co-ordinated our wedding and Natalia who looked after our wedding reception on the day. They provided a fantastic service to us from the moment we enquired about having our wedding in their hotel, our wedding was organised within three months and that was possible because of the professionalism, efficiency,friendliness and excellent co-ordination from Iona. The Rivercourt was a dream to deal with nothing was too much trouble and it was all about want we wanted on our day and they delivered that 100% on our wedding day. All the staff in the hotel were extremely professional, the food was gorgeous and the service was excellent. The setting was magical with the castle lit up at night looking into the ballroom. All of our guest commented on the service, food and the hotel. Our bridal suite was beautifully with an amazing view of the castle. It really was the perfect venue for our wedding and an excellent service was provided. We really were looked after so well and made to feel so special on our special day. I would encourage any couple looking for a wedding venue to strongly consider having their wedding in the Rivercourt hotel.
