Hard to put into words how incredible the experience at Dunskey Estate was! We chose Dunskey Estate for our wedding location because we wanted a small ceremony, and in a stunning location. With Dunskey, we got that and so much more. With Anne and her team, our wedding turned out better than we could have ever imagined and way better than I could have done on my own. Anne took my vision and turned it into the most beautiful event I have ever attended. If Anne suggests something for your event, just go with it. She will not steer you wrong! She worked so hard to create the most special event for us! Her dedication to the details and caring support through the whole week meant so much to all of us. Ali was truly incredible throughout the entire week as well. We shared tears of joy with both Ali and Anne throughout the ceremony, which is something you don't get with any other wedding venue! I also cannot say enough good things about the entire staff at Dunskey. I loved the care and dedication they show to taking care of any and all guests, above and beyond anything we could have ever wanted. It was a luxury that many of us have never experienced and we are forever grateful to the entire Dunskey team. And the food!! The food was incredible, 10/10, every single meal. We all ate like kings and queens. The house itself is something out of a movie. It was like living in a Downton Abbey episode. It was truly an all inclusive experience and an absolute dream to spend time at Dunskey. If you are on the fence about booking this venue for any event- wedding, reunion, corporate retreat- book it!

The experience was nothing short of amazing.

I was lucky enough to have my destination wedding at Dunskey Estate. The experience was nothing short of amazing. While planning my wedding, I was simultaneously going after a promotion at work and many family obligations. Anne and Ali made it simple. I had as much control over detail as I wanted and trusted Anne’s amazing taste when I knew I didn’t have time. Quite frankly I’m convinced she could’ve planned my unique perfect wedding from our first call alone. They are just genuinely good people and good people are hard to find these days especially while planning a wedding. I am from the US so I couldn’t taste a cake or see my florals in person. Every piece of my wedding was spectacular down to the tiniest details. In a world where so many people are focusing on division and differences, Dunskey is the place to go with your favorite people and feel whole again. The staff were amazing. They learned my 30 guest’s names and quirks in 2 days. The staff, food, property any one component would be enough to make me go back. Weeks later our family and friends are still in shock of what a perfect long weekend we experienced. Also I love a good deal - I would pay twice what I paid to do it all over. Dunskey feels like home so be careful you’ll want to go back a million times! If you want to guarantee a successful destination wedding or a wedding you will look back on and only remember the good choose Dunskey.
