Our perfect day

Barony Castle was exactly what we were hoping for! The building and the grounds are STUNNING for photographs and all our guests commented on how beautifully everything was set up. Michele in particular was lovely and had such an attention to detail. The food was incredible with many choices for all dietary requirements. The suite we were in the night before and morning of was beautiful and had just the right amount of space for everyone

Our Perfect Day

We were married at The Barony Castle Hotel in April this year.
Our wedding was an absolute joy to plan. Michele, our wedding planner, and her team were truly amazing.
We had an intimate family ceremony and everything we had asked for was organised to perfection. The ceremony room was filled with fairy lights, fresh flowers and warm colours. Everything from our meal afterwards to our evening reception was timed brilliantly, we didn't have to do a thing, other than enjoy our beautiful day.
Nothing was too much trouble throughout the whole process.
We would recommend The Barony Castle to future couples, it's such a scenic place for amazing photos and a wonderful venue.

Magical Day

We had the most magical Day. We had many suppliers and demands but our wedding Co-ordinator made it work. Lovely suites and staff were great. A couple of issues we had were resolved quickly and professional which shows what a great team they have. I wish we could do it all again and wouldn’t change a thing. Thank you All

An Amazing Wedding

Wow what can we say except from what an outstanding day!!! ❤️❤️

From the moment we booked our wedding, the team at Barony were just utterly amazing. Nothing was ever too much trouble and what a day they brought to life ❤️ Michele was outstanding and everyone else were fab throughout as well. Our day was FANTASTIC and all that we hoped it would be and more. Genuinely was brilliant and everyone was commenting on how beautiful the place was and how amazing the wedding breakfast was as well. Many commented on how it was the best wedding meal they had ever been served. Which we felt the same.

We have visited Barony regularly over the years and there was only ever going to be one place we were getting married. Already looking forward to our next visit and this time a married couple ❤️

Wonderful service - very personal could do better

Barony castle has made the wedding preparations so easy. They have taken care of every detail and aspect. Super responsive to any emails, calls. Fabulous food. All guests complemented how good and quick the service was. Prepared for two possibilities in case of bad weather as the wedding was meant to be outdoors , another room was set up inside and saved the day! Couldn’t imagine and ask for a better service !

A dream of a day

We got the late date special offer on our wedding due to our previous venue going bankrupt a couple of months before our date. So with very little time, a slightly stressed bride and groom that dont live locally Barony Castle pulled it all together. Everything ran smoothly and the castle looked stunning.

Beautiful venue, excellent staff

We had the best day at Barony Castle and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. The hotel is picturesque and welcoming and the staff were incredible. Guests loved the Polish map on site too. The food was brilliant and exceeded expectations and we were looked after so well even from the night before with our private dining area, the day itself, and the breakfast the next day. Nothing was too much trouble and Michelle liaised with all of the suppliers amazingly and kept us all on track and on schedule!

Wedding 8th May 2016

If you are looking for the perfect wedding venue with everything you need to have a fantastic day then look no further than The Barony Castle. We had the best day of our lives getting married and i wouldn't have wanted it anywhere else. The surroundings are fantastic, the castle itself is luxurious and relaxed and as for the staff, they could not have done more.

Ashley the wedding co-ordinator is absolutely brilliant at what she does and she takes a personal interest rather than it just being a job. Sincerely one of the nicest young women you shall ever meet.

The team that work closely with her are also second to none, the gents Steven and Felix were so helpful and i was never in doubt that things would be done perfectly for us on the day.

The food for our wedding breakfast was different class and our entire wedding party loved the food. The chefs and kitchen staff did a fantastic job.

Overall, our wedding day was the the kind of day that dreams are made of, we were also lucky enough to have amazing weather which came from nowhere.

I sincerely look forward to booking our 1 year anniversary stay at the Barony for next year and i strongly suggest that anyone looking to book their wedding venue looks no further than the Barony Castle.
