Wedding Testimonials

Dear Monica, Neil and all the Staff of Ashford.

Thank you so much for organising the most wonderful wedding day for us. From the moment we arrived we felt so calm and relaxed knowing we were in such professional hands. The attention to detail was amazing, the service was super – efficient yet kind and understanding. We really experienced why you must be so proud of your hotel and staff and why you have such a glowing national and international reputation. A special thanks to house-keeping who put the presidential suite back together after 5 women got ready there on the morning of the wedding ‘no mean feat’!!

Also to what mast be the most patient of all Food & Beverage managers – Neil Grant, your wisdom and experience shone through to create a seamless gourmet affair with impeccable timing. And without Monica where would we be? Probably stil planning our wedding, thank you again for making all our requests 2 reality and giving us sound advice and support, we absolutely loved the band!

From the door staff, barmen, chefs, Benny the bag-piper and especially the charming Henry, you made our guests and ourselves welcome to such a warm and friendly degree it will be remembered forever.

Our guests only complaint was they didn’t have enough time in their beautiful rooms and will have to return to Ashford for longer to see it all.

Thank you all again for creating our dream wedding.
With much Gratitude,

Stephanie Nightingale

Dear Monica,

Thank you for an amazing wedding. I am very grateful for all your hard work, dedication and organisational skills for our big day!

Everything about the day was magical thanks to all of you in Ashford, from the food and flowers to the entertainment, everything was fantastic. Antonio and I had a ball and so
too did our guests. I cannot thank you all enough and look forward to coming back again (I need to find something else to celebrate now on purpose!)

Take care,
Kindest Regards,
Anna and Antonio Aprile,

My husband Kevin, eldest son Aiden, and I were recently guests at the hotel for my father, Brooke’s, wedding on July 1st. I am emailing today to say THANK YOU to each and every staff member we encountered. Each and every person-from the cleaning staff, to the falconry school, to the spa (Steph), to the very special gents in the dining room, drawing room, and bar (Gary, Fintan, Peter, Padraig, Martin, Michael….. and everyone I may be forgetting!) was AMAZING. All 3 of us were treated beautifully and you all helped make Ashford Castle special for us.

It should also be mentioned that the wedding weekend itself was wonderful….again, the special combination of amazing place and lovely people!

We hope to be back someday
Thank you again,
Kristin Thygesen

Dear Monica

We have just returned to London from an amazing weekend. Thank you so much for all your help, not to mention patience(!), in organising such a wonderful evening for my father's 80th. It really was such a special occassion for him. The rooms were wonderful & everyone at the Castle went out of their way to make us all feel very comfortable. The beef received ALOT of compliments, so please do pass that on to Stefan. The menu cards caused alot of laughs - so thank you again for helping me organise these, and for going out of your way to help us. Please pass on my thanks to Robert & Martin. They both took such good care of us all at dinner. I sadly couldn't find either of them the following morning to say thank you, before we left . Would you also kindly assure Robert that the majority of us all enjoyed the red wine!!! (........he'll know what I mean!!!!)

With many thanks again,
Natalie & Pierre

Dear Mr. Rochford,

Back in Switzerland, we want to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in the Ashford Castle. Our fifth visit to the Castle was again a full success. We want to express our thanks to the staff of the Castle for its professionalism and kindness. We enjoyed very much our Suite 430 and hope we shall have the chance to get it again during our next stay, probably in August 2011.

Best regards
Willy & Ursula Rohrbach - Berger
