Thank you to all our lovely wedding couples for their kind and lovely feedback.

We share these with you to give you a true flavour of the wedding experience here at Kilkenny River Court Hotel. 

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.

Maries Wedding Day 2018

So it's well overdue , I've been thinking about it long enough and not doing it, few photos from service , thanks again :-). Best of luck with the reopening .

Laura & Alan December 2019

We had our wedding at the rivercourt hotel on the 7th of December. From the time we booked our wedding they were absolutely fantastic Marcella the wedding coordinator was so helpful and Catherine in reservations was fantastic! 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. The wedding day ran perfectly absolutely nothing went wrong the food was beautiful all our guests complimented the hotel the food and staff. Thank you for an amazing weekend! Laura & Alan Sower

We would both like to thank you and the hotel staff for making our dream weddings come true .Marcella was truly amazing in how she helped Sabrina throughout the whole process...Natalia was flawless with the service and the food was impeccable please send the chef our and everybody's else's complements, thank you seems to small of a word to use in this case we will be forever grateful for our amazing weekend.

Denise & Mark October 2019

We don't even know how to begin to thank you for such an amazing day. Everything went perfect and we could not be happier. Everybody we talk to has been singing your praises and we will be recommending The Rivercourt to all our friends. Thanks Marcella & Iona 

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

I want to thank you for everything ye went above and beyond for us we couldn’t have been any happier on the day it was amazing from start to finish we wish we could do it all over again.

Lynda & Michael June 2019

I got married in the River Court hotel in june I found rivercourt staff from start to finish a pleasure to deal with. So helpful at all times and on the day went above and beyond to ensure we had the perfect day. We had our ceremony there also which was amazing. The food was exceptional and feedback from guests suggested that they thought so too. The bridal suite is exquisite with champagne breakfast to our room . The view of that castle is amazing to wake up to. I could not fault a thing about our day and alot of this is down to an excellent venue which we certainly had.

Kim & Pierce May 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. I cannot thank the staff enough for making our day a true fairytale wedding and a day we will never forget .

Aoife & John April 2019

We were married last Saturday and had our reception at the Rivercourt Kilkenny and can not fault the service. From start to finish the staff were absolutely amazing. The decor, food and attention to detail were all perfect. We just wish we could do it there all over again.

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!
