Des & Carol-Wedding: 21st September 2018
Where do we start with Aherlow House Hotel.....what a beautiful hotel and amazing staff. We got married here on the 21st September 2018 and from the moment we stepped foot inside the door a few months earlier to view the hotel, the staff were more than nice. Eve the Weddings & Events Manager has such a nice personality and from our first conversation with her we knew Aherlow House Hotel was going to be the place for our Special Day. Leading up to the wedding Eve and the staff at the Front Desk took so much pressure off us regarding bookings etc. They supplied us with recommended Cake Contacts, Decor Contacts and also gave us a viewing of the Ballroom set up for a wedding. And I must say it looks fantastic! The day itself was raining on and off so as we were having a civil ceremony we were unable to have it outdoors which was a bit disappointing but if Eve could have changed the weather she would have "its the only thing she has no control over, she tells me", honestly, inside was just as nice and our guests loved it, it was a short walk to the bar, ha, ha! The food on the day was unbelievable and the service from the staff was exceptional. They are a credit to the hotel and that is the truth. All of the guests had a great day, some of them were never in Aherlow House Hotel and couldn't believe the scenery overlooking the Galtee Mountains. Even in the rain it is beautiful. If you are planning a wedding it is a 100% a must, to at least view this outstanding place. Thanks so much to Eve and the staff at Aherlow House Hotel for making our day unforgettable. Carol & Des.
Eanna & JP-Wedding: 24th August 2018
Where to begin with our experience in Aherlow House, from the moment we arrived on the day to view the venue and we met with Eve. I think we both knew then this was the place we wanted to get married in. Every single person that we met and dealt with couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating to us. It was actually sad when saying goodbye to everyone the day after the wedding, that's how welcoming all the staff make you feel. Eve was always there at the end of the phone or email, always willing to help and give ideas which we loved getting. The whole hotel was amazing, the views, the food and the rooms. Everything I can't recommend this hotel enough. I believe once you go for a viewing ye will fall in love with the place & the staff. We can't thank everyone in Aherlow House enough for everything during our planning. Nothing was left out, all our guests commented on how nice the food was, the staff were and everything really about the hotel. Thank you so much for everything from The Murphy-Fahey's xx
Pamela & Brendan-Wedding: 17th August 2018
We got married on the 17th August 2018, it was so relaxed and beautiful. Dealing with Eve, Caroline and staff throughout the planning was so straight forward. Any questions we had were answered ASAP and they were all so helpful. Food was beautiful, views were spectacular and the hotel was tucked away from all the hustle and bustle of roads, towns and cities. Their cabins are fab and roomy. Balcony bedroom is especially comfortable and spacious. We were so delighted to be able to have our Wedding in Aherlow House. Thank you for making our Wedding Day special.
Michael & Cathy-Wedding:9th June 2018
I would like to say a few words about the Aherlow House Hotel, the venue for our Wedding on the 9th June 2018. Everyone plans in the heads the perfect day for their wedding, but the Aherlow House Hotel truly helps make it a reality. My now wife's parents were married there in 1976 and the venue means a lot to them and us as we spend a lot of time relaxing in the beautiful glen of aherlow when we have down time, therefore it was a natural choice for us. The backdrop to the hotel, the imposingly beautiful Galtee mountains are a wonderfully scenic place for photographs and afterwards you can relax on the deck with friends and family and enjoy a celebratory drink hopefully in the beautiful sunshine, but regardless you have the lovely snug warm environment of the Hunting Lodge Bar if the weather does not go your way. From the very first day we expressed an interest in having the hotel for our Special Day the entire management and staff could not do enough for us. We found that Eve and her wedding team were always on hand to answer any queries we had in the run up on the day and made themselves available for meetings to everything no matter how big or small. It is hard to put into words how spectacular the is venue is but it truly is the people who work there that make it special. I would like to say a big thank you to Sinead (The Bar Manager) and also Sadie and Grainne in Reception who gave us a lot of assistance over the few days. We were treated like royalty for the entire day from the moment we set foot on the red carpet outside the hotel. Our guests were bowled over by the friendliness and helpfulness of staff and it was commented countless times the quality of the beautiful meal that was provided. It was evident anyway from the empty plates all round so a special word for the wonderful chef in residence. Bravo Sir. It goes without saying therefore that we both are delighted to recommend this hotel to any couple who are planning their big day and would actively seek people out to tell them about it, given how good our experience was. It truly is a magical place. Michael (Groom) on behalf of myself and my wife.
Therese & Kieran-Wedding: 1st June 2018
"Gosh, where do I start.....
When we set out to plan our Special Day we knew exactly what venue we wanted because of the most beautiful scenery but along with that came the most kind hearted people that would help make our day more special. No problem was ever too big or small especially for Eve who was always only an email or phone-call away and always seemed to put us at ease in a matter of minutes. Our day went without a hitch, the food was outstanding and everything just seemed to flow with ease. A special thanks from the bottom of our hearts to everyone in Aherlow House who helped make our day one to remember.....love Therese and Kieran x
Kenneth & Aisling-Wedding:19th May 2018
What an amazing time we had in Aherlow House Hotel. Eve our Weddings & Events Manager made the entire wedding planning process most enjoyable and smooth! The level of detail shown by Eve and her team was outstanding. The Lodges on the grounds enabled our guests time to spend in a relaxed atmosphere the night before overlooking the picturesque Galtee Mountains, a setting that is so indescribably stunning. The staff were extremely professional throughout the weekend. Eve had everything organised to perfection. We were blessed with the weather. The Arrival's Reception was hosted out on the Veranda with the most breath-taking views, quite simply enchanting. The Diarmuid & Grainne Suite was beautifully decorated. The Wedding Meal was absolutely delicious and the candy cart went down a real treat with the kids and adults too! We are without a doubt thrilled to have had our Special Day at Aherlow House Hotel, they looked after us from the moment we booked right through to our Special Day! If you are thinking of a scenic venue with service and food to match look no further!

Honestly, whatever kind of wedding day you envisage, Aherlow will make it possible.

Our guests from near and far had a wonderful time, both at the wedding and for the entire duration of their stay; they will certainly be returning to Aherlow House in the future. As we live abroad we were organising our wedding from afar. Eve, our Events Manager at Aherlow House was brilliant. She guided us through the whole thing with such ease and professionalism - we simply couldn't have done it without her! This elegant but understated Grande Dame is adjusting her crown, dusting herself off and putting her best foot forward right now. Her beauty treatments are ongoing at the moment . We wish Aherlow House and its staff every success in making her look and feel her best and we look forward to returning there very soon. Colin & Miia-Wedding:3rd June 2017We had a fantastic wedding co-ordinator from Aherlow who was always there to help with our questions.

Brigid & Ciarans-Wedding:2nd September 2016We recently held our wedding reception in Aherlow House Hotel and the manner and efficiency of which Eve, the wedding Co-ordinator dealt and communicated with us made the weeks and days prior to our wedding day so stress free. Grainne on reception was excellent looking after our guests every need above and beyond her duties. The food was excellent and was delivered by friendly staff to our large number of guests promptly and piping hot. The hotel itself with its breath-taking scenery and beautifully decorated ballroom created a magical experience for us and our guests . Both management and staff made our wedding day a very special day for us and we would highly recommend this hotel as a wedding venue.
Our very first meeting with Eve in February was the beginning of a great 6 months of planning, I still remember Eve's face when I told her that day we still hadn't a church/priest lol but as from the very first moment of planning everything fell into place, we got the hotel we wanted and the church and then it was all systems go!!! Eve could not have done enough for us and was always at the end of the phone or an email away if there was anything we needed or worried about.... highly recommend Eve as a wedding planner - dedicated, friendly and always had a smile.....The hotel itself is such a fabulous hotel with its beautiful setting and amazing views couldn't have asked for a better place to have our special day... The day itself was amazing and credit to Caroline and Sinead for all their hard work on the day making sure everything went smoothly..... We got to have our arrival reception outside which I was delighted with and everyone got to appreciate the wonderful surroundings of the hotel...Again a huge thanks to Eve and everyone at Aherlow House Hotel for an amazing day, highly recommend Aherlow for a wedding...
