No words can describe how fantastic Gill long, Alan and the staff in Mount Wolseley were for our recent wedding there. From the very first day and throughout all the wedding preparation including the wedding day itself, Gill couldn't have done more for us! The service provided was above and beyond our expectations and was noted by all our guests throughout the day. We couldn't recommend this hotel and it's staff highly enough for their professionalism and efficiency! Well done and thank you so much!! 5 stars isn't enough!!!- James & Mairead Clare August 2017
We first viewed Mount Wolseley in November 2016 as a possible venue. We were also looking at Faithlegg Co. Waterford as we are based in south Kilkenny so both venues are approx. 1hr. From the moment, we drove through the entrance gate at Mount Wolseley we got that WOW feeling...we knew our guests would appreciate it too as lot of Damien's friends love to Golf. There is plenty of parking directly outside the hotel. The main lobby is very special. The stunning dual stair case both sweeping around the main reception again has that WOW factor. The hotel also has a beautiful pool and Spa which a lot of guests availed of the following morning to shake off the hangover. You have the choice of the main entrance to arrive through or the Banqueting entrance which is a circular building and very private for the wedding party, easy for guests to mingle, listening to the arrival music( we made use of the piano outside the stunning stone walled interior Snug bar) we chose the banqueting entrance to arrive through on the day as Gill Long ( the friendliest, most efficient, passionate about her job, takes pride in her work, goes above and beyond for you wedding Co-Ordinator you will ever meet) pointed out to Damien and I that our guests will see the main reception when they check in. We had a caricature artist here, alongside the ice cream cart and the kids had cones of popcorn...we got cocktails and bottled beers and prosecco for the guest’s arrival too. Scones and biscuits some sandwiches too as our guests had that 1-hour drive from the church. (Tip: Go for an early time for ceremony as you and your guests will want as much time as you can get when you arrive to mount wolseley) Gill made everything so easy for us we were able to swop things around with the package (ie sandwiches from the evening food were served on arrival instead) The reception staff, So friendly, personable and again efficient. This hotel is at present a 4-star hotel but because of the level of service we and our 197 guests received from Alan and Hannah and all the Banqueting team and of course Gill on the day too was so high it feels like 5 stars. Every waiter was assigned their own table ensuring that every guest at that table had their every request attended to. So many guests commented about how fantastic all the staff were. We genuinely did not get any bad feedback. One guest complained about the music level during the meal. This was brought to my attention immediately and I was asked what would i like to do... we didn’t feel that music was too loud but the guest who complained was elderly so for her sake I decided to lower it slightly but the fact i was kept informed and things were being communicated to me I loved that! All other guests commented on how amazing the food was. The fillet of beef that we had... how soft it was how the vegetables were cooked perfectly too. We went for the seabass and sea trout as the alternative to beef. Every guest got 3 fillets of fish on their plate. Believe me when i say that the food was Outstanding. Huge compliments to the Chefs. We got our pictures taken on the golf course. I'm going into a lot of detail but that's because I can honestly say that if i could do it all over again I would choose Mount Wolseley Hotel Golf and Spa resort as my wedding venue again. Faithlegg was nice but just didn't have that WOW factor for us. We felt the staff at Mount Wolseley are the best in Ireland. You have a choice of 3 different stunning bridal suites... best advice, go meet Gill and get a show around.

We would like to say how amazing Mount Wolseley is as we recently had our dream wedding at the hotel . Our wedding day and weekend there was made perfect by their brilliant staff and fantastic rooms . The food was excellent and enjoyed and talked about by all our guests and also we'd like to give a special mention to Gill & Jessica their wedding co-ordinators and Alan & Danny from the Banqueting team . They all made our dream come true ! We would highly recommend this venue for a wedding or even for a weekend break .- Dave & Claire July 2017
We had our wedding here on Friday but the phenomenal service we got started when we first met Jill Long. She made our wedding planning so easy from minute 1. She is so accommodating and so friendly, you'll go a long way before you find anyone as competent as this lady. Alan Phelan ensured our meal service and night went smoothly, a nicer gentleman you couldn't meet.Our guests cannot speak highly enough about the amount and the quality of the food and the efficient service from the hotel staff from reception to waiting staff to bar staff, everyone was helpful, pleasant and professional.Our wedding was a dream come true. Thank you so much.
Anyone who is considering a hotel venue for your wedding, Mount Wolseley is everything you could want and much more.

We booked our wedding in Feb 2016 and knowing we were going to have approx 20 kids at the wedding, Mount Wolseley suited our needs perfectly! It's quite a laid back venue yet has great attention to the small details. There were a number of personnel changes of the Wedding Planner role in the past year, which for other couples may have been a concern, but we were quite laid back about the wedding so it didn't affect us. Gill started the role a few months back and we have found her extremely helpful. She couldn't do enough for us! The lead up to the day itself was very straight forward and we met Gill a few days before to go through everything which totally put us at ease about the day. Everyone in the hotel was so friendly and helpful and we could not have asked for more. We had loads of compliments from our guests about the food and the venue which was great!! Would totally recommend Mount Wolseley to anybody for thier wedding day. We wouldn't have changed a thing!

We would highly recommend the Mount Wolseley Spa and Golf Resort as a wedding venue to any newmy engaged couples. We had a great experience dealing with the hotel in the run up to our big day and in particular the the hotel's new Wedding Planner Gill. She was so helpful and accommodating and has a wealth of wedding knowledge! We have recieved so many nice compliments about the venue from our guests since the wedding and we were so happy with how the day turned out. We really wouldn't change a thing! We had the best day of our lives and the venue was definitely one of the highlights. We just wish we could go back and do it all over again :-)

Mount Wolseley Hotel and Spa, Tullow, Co Carlow. Where do we start about this hotel? From the minute we got there on Thursday evening, the night before the wedding, to checking out on Monday we could not fault a single thing. We had a cocktail and champagne arrival reception in the banquet hall before being called in for a flawless dinner and a great night of
dancing. The staff truly were amazing and made us feel so welcome and special throughout our stay.
