"A Dream" , Thats what is has been. Beautiful venue, gracious hosts and the best day of our lives. What more could we ask for."

Sean and Edel, 17th June 2017

"I want to say a MASSIVE thank you to you and William for what was honestly the best day of our lives. Lisnavagh is honestly the most beautiful wedding venue and our guests are still speaking about how wonderful it all was.It was a tough time with all the rescheduling and at times we weren’t sure what the best thing to do was but I’m so happy we decided to hold out and have the wedding of our dreams.You, William and every person we interacted with on the weekend were just amazing! You made me, Gavin and all our guests feel so welcome and at home. It’s truly a magical place."

Raisa and Gavin, September 2021

We had the most wonderful weekend at Lisnavagh House on the occasion of my daughter Clares wedding to Matthew. Everything was perfect, the house, the grounds and the exceptional hospitality. Clare grew up in the UK with Irish roots and really wanted to find a venue that reflected that, and she did.Some of Matt and Clares friends had never visited Ireland before and they all said how much they loved it along with the opportunity to all stay together in one place.I would like to say a special thank you to Ann & Brid for their patience and friendliness as we popped in and out of the kitchen to borrow scissors etc the morning of the wedding. Breakfast was just fabulous. Anns scones were the best we have ever tasted. I will have to go and practice a bit more!Thank you all for everything, and not forgetting Niamh who throughout the year has met Clares every enquiry with a “Yes”. We couldn't have wished for a better weekend.We hope to revisit Lisnavagh
