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.

Hi Catherine, I just wanted to send you a quick message to thank you for all your help & support in the run up to our wedding. We don't even know where to start with the thank you's. Mount Wolseley were fantastic in every way - from the food, accommodation & the staff in particular. Everyoneofour guests commented on how friendly & helpful everyone was. We had such an amazing day, so much more than we expected & I would quite happily recommend Mount Wolseley to anyone thinking of getting married. I know other brides/grooms may be upset that they can not use the gardens anymore but the area we had our photographs taken so so lovely and close enough for some of our guests to enjoy also..We cannot wait for our next visit to Mount Wolseley. Kindest regards, Mr & MrsDaly xxx

I would also like to thank Gerry and Joanie for all their help on the evening of the wedding, also all the staff in the hotel. All the guests complimented the superb food and were all shocked that everyone was offered seconds.

HelloCatherine/Breda, I hope you are both keeping well since we have spoken. I am emailing you both regarding our wedding which took place on Friday 6th June,2014. Both
Padraig and myself would like to thank Mount Wolesley for making our day so special to us. We were delighted with everything on the day from beginning to end.
The hotel venue was fabulous. The function room looked excellent, the food was beautiful and the staff were exceptional. The hotel grounds were fabulous which enabled us to take many great photos to remember our day. We would like to say a special thanks to you both for being so efficient, professional and organised throughout the last year when preparing for our wedding. Any questions we had were promptly answered and any changes that we needed to make were made without any hesitation. We both felt very relaxed coming up to the big day as we knew everything was in order and nothing would be forgotten. You were a pleasure to deal with and we wish you every success in your future with Mount Wolseley.
We would also like to pay a special thanks to the chauffeur of the jaguar. I believe his name is Michael but I cannot be 100 % sure. I would like to thank him for being so obliging and for his patience on the day. He was very efficient and friendly and a pleasure to meet. We would like to thank Lisa Morrissey for being very efficient and proactive coming up to our
day. She continuously kept us both up to date with any information that was of benefit to us. We were very appreciative. Further to this we would like to thank all staff and Mount Wolseley for making out day so successful. Mount Wolseley for allowing our photographer to use their private gardens and to anyone else who I have not mentioned. It is a beautiful venue and a delight to have dealt with. We are still hearing great reports about the wedding and we would like to thank you all sincerely. Thank you for your time throughout the last year and we wish you all every success in the future. Kind regards, Catherine and Pádraig

Dear Catherine, We would like to thank you most sincerely for the wonderful few days we spent celebrating our daughter Anne-Marie's wedding. You did a brilliant job in organising the wedding, from start to finish. You were most obliging and nothing was any trouble, even the unfortunate last minute cancellations. It was a busy few months for us so I cannot imagine what it was like for you. You were always in such good form and it was a pleasure to deal with you. The wedding went without a hitch and that is thanks to you. From the moment we arrivedwewere made most welcome by all the staff. They were all most obliging and helpful which helped make the whole wedding a very special experience. I think it would be unfair to single out anybody as all the staff in the various areas was friendly, welcoming, obliging and did an excellent job. We would like to take this opportunity to thank
each and every one of them. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending the Mount Wolseley Hotel to any of our friends. We also hope that the Morrissey family overcome their current difficulties and that the hotel continues to thrive into the future. Catherine, many thanks once again for your excellent work Kindest regards.

Ok guys, I honestly have never written a testimonial before for anything... But really feel I needed to do one on this occasion. Mount Wolseley truly made the wedding of our dreams come true. My wife and I just got married in March 2014, and it was the most amazing day/weekend of both our lives! We had looked at a number of venues originally, but once we went to visit Mount Wolseley and met Catherine, we had no hesitation that this is THE venue! Considering we had a relatively large wedding party, Catherine and her team, including
Breda and others, have genuinely been the biggest pleasure to deal with, no ask has been too big or small, and literally they accommodated every request we had. Leading up to the
wedding day itself Catherine was magnificent... She almost knew more of the finite details of our reception than we did!! Because we were engaged for almost 18 months there were things we asked for at the initial stage, which we almost forgot about, but Catherine and the guys had remembered everything, literally! Then the wedding day itself... We had a feeling it was going to be a special day when it rained during the mass ceremony in Kildare... Then the sun came out as we left the church... Then it rained on the drive down MW... But incredibly the sun came out again for a few hours as we arrived and we ended up getting the most amazing pictures!! Bala met us on arrival and we had pics in the magical secret gardens, the 18th green lake shots (don't worry We were given a golf buggy to drive down!), pictures outside the front of the hotel and even some family group shots inside the reception.. That staircase is incredible! At this stage we were already on the biggest high and hadn't even really met any of our wedding guests yet! When we arrived to the pre-reception we were given the red carpet treatment and amazing to see all out friends and family in flying spirits... The first thing most of our guests said to us (apart from how stunning my wife looked :-) was what an incredible venue Mount Wolseley is, and some even went as far as to say the most beautiful hotel they had ever stayed in. They said the rooms were fantastic and very spacious, and especially commented how friendly and welcoming the staff were, particularly Sinead and the team at reception. I personally have not been at too many weddings where people specifically comment on the staff, so it truly is well-deserved kudos to all the staff at MW. My wife and I were made to feel the most special and important people in the world when entering the room... All our guests were seated and our entrance "happy" sure got everyone up dancing as we entered the room! Thanks to MW I didn't end up having any nerves in the slightest, even for the speeches.. Bala, Niamh and the guys were fantastic in making us all at ease and making sure that we were having the time of our lives that we didn't have time to worry about anything else! The food was AMAZING and really did live up to its reputation! The band absolutely rocked the hotel and the floor was full for the night, then onto the residents bar where JJ and the team were brilliant... Never saw a residents bar so full with so many of our guests! A reflection of the amazing time everyone was having at the hotel! Again the next day more of our guests were commenting on the hotel, that it surely must be 5 star, and the rooms and staff and how they will definitively be coming back to stay again in the future, honestly! We had the private Morrissey bar booked for the second night... We thought only 25-30 guests would be staying, but in the end it turned out I be 50-60 people, and it did not cause the slightest problem to the hotel, everyone had a great time! We would bring our own music and Catherine had previously arranged for platters of food to be dropped in later in the evening, which was fab! The great vibe from the wedding day before carried on into the next day/night. We also arranged a family meal on the Saturday evening and I would like to give a special mention to Roderick.. There was a lot of confusion caused, nothing to do with MW, but was
from out side.. And Roderick went above and beyond to resolve ye issue which he did not need to do, Thank you! The only negative about the whole weekend in Mount Wolseley hotel was.... We had to leave on Sunday morning! Honestly that was all, after having the best 2 days of our lives, it almost seemed like another relationship was ending haha... But my wife and I promised ourselves that we will still come down occasionally for meals and nights away! The staff, in particular Catherine "button" Doyle, have become almost like friends, as
opposed to just our wedding coordinator. My wife and I will always be in your debt for providing the most magical and amazing weekend above what we could ever have imagined,
we really mean that. If anyone is looking for us we are still in cloud 9, we should be back at some stage :-) Thanks so much again to you all and we will see you soon again!
Love you all for making our dream wedding come true.

HelloCatherine, I hope this testimonial is okay. I just wrote down everything I felt and I hope I didn’t leave out anybody, thank you again for everything :) I have to say the minute we walked into Mount Wolseley we knew it was the hotel we wanted to have our Wedding reception, it just has the wow factor. We had a wonderful and magical wedding day and memories to cherish forever. From Day one Catherine was very helpful and professional and gave us advice and ideas we would never have thought of for the day. I knew icould ring her about anything; she was always MORE than helpful and so easy to talk to. I also have to mention that Breda was such an amazing help too, you certainly know your jobs ladies, a pleasure to deal with. The service in the function room and bars were just brilliant, they all did such a great job, our guests were commenting on how helpful and friendly the serving staff were. The food was so delicious, istill have people saying how gorgeous the dinner was and wine, which was also flowing on the day and not forgetting the breakfast staff, the breakfast was to die for. The gardens looked beautiful where we had our photos taken, thanks so much for letting us use the grounds to take our photos in and the spin in the buggy topped it off. Thanks to the reservation staff who were very efficient and sorted people's rooms out very quickly. All our guests were very happy and impressed with their rooms.
The Hotel looked absolutely amazing and so elegant, almost everyone on the day said what a beautiful hotel we had chosen and were in awe with the place. See you all very soon, we intend to make a return trip :) Thank you all in Mount Wolseley Hotel for making our day so special, Lots of Love Catherine & Tony

Hi Catherine, Here you are! We had a brilliant time. Catherineyou are excellent at what you do. All your advice and help in the lead up to the wedding was invaluable. You certainly know what you’re doing! It was great to walk over to the ceremony with you. Thanks to Thomas who guided us on the golf buggysand organised everything to get the photos off the ground! Himself and his colleague came back to find us when our golf buggy stalled! Lol. Thanks to Bala and his team in the reception and function were excellent. Service was
fantastic and plenty of food and drink! All to our guests delight. Loving the silver service treat for the main course! The barman in the residence bar for making my mother a piña colada after hours! Thanks to Magda and the staff in reservations they were excellent to deal with and probably had their work cut out for them with most of the guests wanting to check in early! Both ourselves and our guests were delighted with life from start to finish from the service, the food and drink. Everything went perfect for us and the sun shone brightly too! Happy days. Thanks so much to all of you for your excellent contribution to making it a great wedding for us and our guests. Jennifer and Philip.

Hi Catherine, Sorry for not emailing you sooner, I can’t thank you and all the staff enough for what you done for myself and Wayne our day was nothing but perfect we enjoyed every moment from start to finish. Our guests had nothing but good things to say about the hotel the staff and the food. Never once did i hear anyone complain which just topped off our amazing weekend. I would do it all again in a heartbeat. Bala was so good to us always making sure everything was ok for us and all the staff were so kind and friendly to us all weekend in the hotel they really couldn’t do enough for us. It was so nice even the next day how well we got treated. I can’t thank you and Breda enough for your help all the emails back and forward you both were very supportive and helpful to myself and Wayne. You are both brilliant at your job and you deserve a lot of credit for that. I honestly couldn’t have asked for better it was our perfect day and we have amazing memories that we will cherish forever. Thanks again for everything we will definitely be back to visit you all soon.
When we get our photographs I will email you on some. Kind Regards Amanda and Wayne xx.

Hi Catherine, I just want to say a huge thank you for everything you done in the build up to mine and Justin's Wedding. From the moment we chose the Mount Wolseley for our big day you have gone above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and at ease. You really are amazing at your job; both myself and Justin could not fault a single thing. From our first viewing of the hotel right up to us checking out the day after our wedding everything went so smoothly. You are a credit to the Mount Wolseley. I know Breda and Magda both received more than enough queries from me in relation to our big day and to them we also want to say thanks a million for putting up with my stressing and panicking. Special thanks to your waitressing staff especially Niamh Orbinski who was at hand for anything we needed during the day and also the evening. The food was amazing all of our guest raved about everything from the reception drinks right up to the finger food for the evening buffet. You played a big part in making our wedding day such a memorable one for myself Justin and Ryan and of course our family and friends. Thanks a million!
