Elaine and Paul Donnelly, March 2015

"Paul and I would just like to say a huge thank you for making our wedding day so special. All the staff at Carton House couldn't do enough for us and our families. Please send our thanks to Peter also. Everyone was raving about the meal and he was so attentive.
The whole weekend went so well for us and our families and everybody had a wonderful time.  We can't recommend Carton House enough. Nowhere could compare to the amount of attention we received from the staff. 
Thank you so much again Fionnuala, you made my dream wedding day become a reality."

"We had the wedding of our dreams - our guests loved it and our families were so pleased that everything went so smoothly. It didn't go unnoticed how fantastic your staff were - they were so accommodating in every way.  The food really was excellent and the rooms create a truly romantic setting.
Thanks so much for all of the time you spent with us in the planning, you were always ready to chat on the phone or meet us as needed and that was a great relief!"

"Thank you so much to everyone at Carton House who made sure our wedding reception was everything we dreamed of. We really had an amazing time & would like to thank everyone at Carton for making sure the whole day went so smoothly. So many of our guests were commenting on the great wedding venue & of course the most beautiful food that was served. Thank you again for everything. "

“I cannot recommend the Hotel enough. Since the minute we booked our wedding up to and after the day itself Eimear and her team were extremely accommodating and were a constant source of support. On the day they really made it special and everything was perfect. All our guests commented on the exceptional service from the staff, the quality of the food and just how fabulous the Hotel itself is. The Hotel staff’s attention to detail was superb and everything ran like clockwork. They really do everything they can to ensure you have nothing to worry about except to enjoy the day, which we did immensely. I cannot praise the team in Carton enough. Thanks a million for everything.”

"We had our wedding at Carton House recently and the one thing that many of our friends and family commented upon since is how amazing the venue was. They all raved about the food, the staff and the beautiful view. We are honestly over the moon we chose Carton House. It seemed to have it all and really please all our guests.
The co-ordinator Eimear was extremely professional. Any issues, questions or worries we had were dealt with immediately. She went above and beyond and helped guide us through every aspect of the day. We were left without any doubt that the day would go off without a hitch.
We had a fabulous day and to top it all off we returned to an unbelievable bridal suite. A truly wonderful venue. We couldn't recommend Carton House and it's staff highly enough."

Tamara and David June 2013

David and I would like to say a big THANK YOU to the Carton House team that helped prepare our Wedding Reception on the 23rd June 2013 and looked after us on the day.

All of you helped to create a most memorable day and we were blown away by the professionalism and friendliness of the staff looking after us, from taking the stress out of the planning phase, to anticipating our every need on the day and accommodating any specific wishes, no matter how big or small.

The decoration was absolutely stunning, down to all the little extra finishing touches we had asked for. It looked absolutely amazing. Our day couldn’t have run more smoothly and all our guests were impressed by the quality of food, service and the atmosphere.

We chose Carton House for the beautiful venue it is, but we were blown away by the absolutely incredible service we received by the staff looking after us.

Thank you so much, we had the time of our life!

“Weddings can be a stressful occasion for the bride & groom, but at Carton house everything was taken care of with consummate ease and great attention to detail.
Our coordinator Eimear was always at hand to guide us, and the online planning system Moposa is a great tool to keep you on top of your planning.
All of the staff on the day were wonderful, everyone of our guests raved about the food, the BBQ and Golf the next day was a great way to wind down … an unforgettable weekend, thanks to all the staff Carton House and Gold Club!”

Niamh & David, May 2013

"We recently had our wedding at Carton House.  From the time we chose the venue right up until the day itself we were impressed and delighted with the staff, and of course the beautiful venue itself.  The co-ordinator Eimear was a dream, there for any question or
query, no matter how small.  Any issues that arose were dealt with immediately and any queries we had were answered, which helped to ensure that we had the best day we could have imagined!
The staff on the day were fantastic.  The food and wine was delicious.  The grounds were beautiful.  All in all, our
wedding day was everything we could have hoped for and more.  We couldn't recommend Carton House and it's staff highly enough."

Grainne & Louis 2013

We got married in Carton House in March 2013 and it was honestly one of the best days of our lives! We fell in love with Carton due to its stunning setting and luxurious interior which made it an obvious choice for our wedding, however for us Carton House provided much more than that. The staff are really what’s at the heart of the place and what made our day so special. Eimear and her team really went over and above on everything and couldn’t have done more for us. In the run up to the big day she was always there for us at the end of an email with a very prompt and helpful response giving us guidance and advice on all aspects of our wedding.
Our day ran so smoothly and all our guests were really blown away with the standard of food, service and the atmosphere Carton helped create. Everyone commented that our wedding really had the WOW factor and to date we are still getting cards and messages from guests thanking us for “the best wedding ever”. I just wish we could do it all again. :)
Before booking Carton we had looked at other venues but when it came down to it no other location could compete with the entire package Carton House offers.
From the bottom of our hearts, THANK-YOU Carton House you guys are amazing!


"Just wanted to say thank you to you and the staff in Carton House for everything. We had a wonderful day and everything went very well. Our guests had a great time also.
On behalf of myself and Michael I would like to complement the staff who served us throughout the day and on Sunday morning for their professionalism, courtesy, friendliness and high standard of customer service.
The staff who served us in the Gold Salon and Morrison Room were particularly excellent. Our guests were equally complementary of the staff and the facilities."


"Just mailing you to thank you for a fabulous day. Everything went so smoothly and our guests all really enjoyed themselves. Thanks also for all your help and co-operation in the weeks and months leading up to the wedding.
It was a pleasure meeting you.
Best of luck in the future!!"

Sarah & Eoin Hogan, September 2012

We were married in Carton exactly one year ago and our guests are still talking about it!
Both the surroundings and the staff were second to none , the attention to detail was superb and everything ran like clockwork.
We would advise anyone seeking a wedding venue to look no further than Carton House!
A big thankyou to Eimear and Jude for helping to make our wedding day such a memorable one.

Amber and David Hennigan, March 2011

"From the moment we arrived at Carton House, we were greeted with Champagne and smiles. It is truly a magical venue. So full of character, yet refined and elegant.
From the reception in the old rooms to the fine dining in the ballroom, we couldn't have asked for more, even the sun shone for us in the gardens.
I know most couples say the food was excellent, and in this instance we can honestly say it was amazing. Perfectly cooked and presented, all the courses were piping hot and the service was excellent. The guests dined on chicken and mushroom vol-u-vents, spicy sweet potato and coconut soup, fillet of beef or monkfish and an assiette of desserts. The waiters were so attentive. To look around at a room full of 150 people and to see how everyone was being looked after is a credit to the high level of training and experience of the staff.
The icing on the proverbial wedding cake has to be the bridal suite. It is simply out of this world, one could happily live there for the rest of their married lives.
We would highly recommend anyone getting married to consider Carton House. The staff and the venue itself made our wedding such a memorable occasion."
