"Couldn't have asked for a better experience"
Date: 11th April 2015
By : Steve & Carolyn
We had our wedding on 11th of April 2015 and we really couldn't have asked for a better experience than the one we received at Johnstown House. We viewed a couple of venues before Johnstown House however after having a walk around and meeting with Jenny we knew we had found the right place.Jennywas always at the the end of the phone/e mail to put our minds at ease with any questions we had leading up to the day. We really couldn't speak highly enough about her. Many of our guests commented on how nice the food was, how well presented the room was, the drinks reception, the constant wine top ups :) All the staff were fantastic and really made the day run so smoothly. We are still bumping into friends we have not seen since the wedding and they were raving bout the food and venue.

"the day went like clockwork"
Date: 30th June 2014
By: Ronan & Yi
My wife and I had our wedding party in June 2014 at Johnstown House Hotel and Spa. We had researched at least 7 to 10 venues before visiting Johnstown House. After we walked around the hotel with Jenny and discussed our plans with her - we knew on the way home that we had found the perfect venue for us to celebrate our big day. The hotel was ideal with its beautiful bedrooms and onsite apartments were perfect for our friends and family to utilize as they are excellent value and very spacious for families and very high SPEC . We also wanted to add our own touch to the venue itself and nothing was an issue with Jenny. She was very very accommodating with all of our requests. We even held our civil ceremony outside on the of 20th June 2014 and Jenny ensured the garden had fresh flowers planted, the garden area was immaculate and everything was made perfect. This on its own showed us how much Jenny wanted to ensure our day was perfect and that it was. The venue, food and service was perfect. About 20 of our guests stayed over the 2nd night and Jenny facilitated a private BBQ for us and we had this outside. Overall our day ran perfectly and this was down to Jenny and the team ensuring the day went like clockwork.

"Its location is ideal, great value for money and ample accommodation for all guests."
Date: 3rd October 2014
By: Gemma & Bill
ust a quick note about our wedding day in the fabulous Johnstown House. What drew us to Johnstown House was our first meeting with Jenny Holmes, who at all times had her finger on the pulse. From the moment we picked the venue she listened and guided us through the organizing and tailoring of the reception and the wedding day. She was contactable at all times. As a venue, Johnstown House is easy accessible from the motorway. Has an impressive drive up from the road. There was great accommodation available for the Cork gang that travelled, many of whom took houses for the weekend and all were very impressed by their high standard and the facilities of the hotel. On arrival to the venue on the wedding day it was pouring rain but this only added to the atmosphere with the fire blazing and all our family and friends tucking into fresh coffee and warm jam covered scones. There was plenty of canapes, with no shortage of anything. We were given free run of the hotel for the family photographs, with Jenny never too far away to help us with any requests. We and our guests were very impressed by the setting of candles and lanterns walking up to the function room. Our meal was fantastic, with a tasting prior to the meal where we given a trail run that allowed us to graft our tastes on o every guests plate. What we chose on the evening of the tasting was exactly what we had arranged including a fabulous selection of wines. The feedback from our guests also saying they really enjoyed the meal. Overall, we would highly recommend Johnstown House as a wedding venue. Its location is ideal, great value for money and ample accommodation for all guests. Thank you and especially Jenny Holmes for all you help and efforts in making our wedding day a memorable one.Yours, Bill & GemmaWell where do I begin!! Johnstown was everything I could dream of & more for our big day! The service was excellent, my guests are all still talking about the food & some even said it wad the best food they ever had at a wedding. And Jenny the wedding coordinator extrodinaire, I knew the second i met her that our wedding would be in safe hands! She is so hard working & her attention to detail is incredible. Her & all the staff made us feel so special not only on our big day but for the whole weekend. I cannot thank them all enough. I look forward to many more family events in this great hotel x

"an amazing day"
Date: 8th February 2014
By: Suzanne Colgan
We had our wedding reception in Johnstown House Hotel in February, it was an amazing day from start to finish. We chose this hotel as we loved the venue and they offered us an excellent package. Dealing with Jenny, the wedding coordinator, was a dream. She was efficient, helpful and so friendly. Any request we made was catered for. Other staff members were equally friendly and efficient. The degree of professionalism we encountered in this hotel was outstanding. Our guests raved about the staff, venue and food on the day. Looking back I wouldn't change a thing.
Thank you to all in the hotel for giving us a day we will never forget.

I cannot begin to describe how amazing JTH were to us. My husband and I got married in October 2013 and wanted as most brides and grooms do our wedding to be different and personal. We decided to go for a music festival theme and Jenny the wedding coordinator was totally up for everything we wanted to do. This meant an awful lot of work for her and the staff but it was no problem to them. In the run up to the wedding they made us feel like our wedding was as important to them as it was to us which made us completely relaxed on the day that things would go smoothly. All of our guests were delighted with everything from the friendly staff, food (both on the day and for the 2 days we took over the hotel), reasonably price bar, comfy rooms, the spa and even the hairdressers for the few that used it! Most of our guests commented it was the best wedding they were ever at and some even went as far as to say it was better than their own wedding day.
I can honestly say Jenny, Gavin and all the staff helped make our day as special as your wedding day should be and we cannot thank them enough!

We had our wedding at the Johnstown House Hotel in October 2013. This is a stunning hotel with friendly, attentive and helpful staff throughout. On the lead up to our wedding we had a couple of trips to the hotel and on each occasion found the staff to be always so helpful and pleasant to deal with. On the weekend of our wedding all guests that stayed were thrilled with their rooms and apartments and commented on how helpful the staff were. Jenny the wedding coordinator was so helpful on the lead up to the wedding and also on the day itself we couldn’t of asked for anything more. The food and the layout of our room on the day were just amazing and we had no complaints with anything throughout the whole weekend. Our parents were well looked after with magnificent rooms on the night of our wedding. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who is planning their wedding.....
You won’t be disappointed!

"A big thank you"
Date: 7th September 2013
By: Paul & Shirley
To all the staff and management that facilitated and contributed to our wedding day on the 7th of September 2013, we would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you. We had the most special day imaginable and have been left with the most special of memories. The staff could not have done more for us both in the run up and organizing of the wedding to the day its self. The reception for our guests was excellent. The room was fantastic and we had more than one or two comments about the quality of the meal on the day.
Too often I believe people will write a letter of complaint and not take the time to appreciate the value in people when a job is done well.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for looking after us so well on the day, you were absolutely fantastic.
Everyone was commenting on how great the hotel was, it couldn't have gone better. The food, the ballroom, the bedrooms and the staff was amazing and the dry ice was great, love it! I can't rate Johnstown House and the service we got height enough. I'll definitely be back for a spa weekend; a lot of our guests stayed the next night and took advantage of the spa and swimming pool, which they all raved about. Thanks again for all your work coming up to the wedding and on the day, it’s a tough job putting up with brides, you've a lot of patience!Hopefully see you soon,
Seána & James xxx
