There was nothing we asked for that was an issue and on the day of the wedding their attention to detail was second to none. Being a new venue I was a little concerned not having had any reviews about the service and food, there was certainly no need to be worried.The food was melt in your mouth especially the slow cooked short rib beef,our guests are still raving about it. There was plenty of staff to look after our guests, again they were genuinely so attentive, polite and well presented. The Abbey is truly unique, it will always have a special place in our hearts as we couldnt of asked for a more perfect day for our wedding.

I definitely recommend this place to anyone planning a wedding. They made us feel so special during all the appointments and the big day. Arizbeth is amazing. From the beginning, she worked with us to make the day as perfect as it could be and took care that everything was running smoothly on the big day. The venue itself is great as well; the rooms are big and spacious. And the bridal suite is like a dream. Our guests praised them the next day. The rest of the building is spacious and beautifully decored. Thank you so much to the team for such an amazing day.

We booked The Abbey after being let down by another venue and we are delighted that we did, it was one of the best decisions that we have ever made. As this is an exclusive wedding and events venue, the attention is fully focused on tailoring the day to your every need. Arizabeth, Dermot and Aoife are a joy to deal with and go above and beyond. The venue itself is unique and all of our guests were completely blown away by its beauty and history (Aoife knows her stuff!). We could not recommend them enough and wish we could have our day all over again. Thank you.
