"A wedding to remember"
Myself and my now wifey had our wedding here on the 23rd August this year and all we can say is WOW. We were blown away on the day. The weddings are organised by a lovely Husband & Wife (Henry & Vivienne) and a lovely chap called Emmett. All our dealing in advance of the wedding were organised by Henry & Vivienne, and many an email were sent with queries and changes/tweaks to our plans for the big day. Emails were always answered swiftly and generally with the response of 'yes, thats no problem'.
We had a lovely menu tasting, and as myself and my wife are both vegetarians we had to bring along two willing meat eaters to taste the meat options whilst we had the vegetarian options, yet again this was no problem from the hotel. The vegetarian options weren't what we liked but we were told we could have anything we wanted on the day (we just had to decide what). In the end we went with vegetarian fajitas and they were delicious. The rest of our guests had a chicken/beef option and loved it also. The vegetable soup for starter was delicious and went down a treat and a good bowl of icecream to top it all off was amazing and left us well and truly stuffed.
The wedding itself was such a relaxed environment, thanks to Emmett, Vivienne & Henry, and we had such an amazing day and nothing was too much to ask. In fact we didnt have to ask on the day for anything, it was all just done for us before we knew it needed to be done.The room was decorated beautifully and we were lucky with the weather so we were able to have our mingling time outside and take advantage of superb grounds. The grounds are great for getting away for a moments peace or for some unique photos to treasure for ever. The hotel itself is intimate so if you have a big wedding you can take advantage of some guest using the overflow accommodation that is just a few minutes away from the hotel, there is a free shuttle bus to ferry guests to and fro at anytime of the day/night/morning. Being able to sit in the quaint bar after all of the festivities have calmed down with close family and friends was a major bonus. It is a relaxed environment full of character.
The following morning we were not rushed anywhere (even with another wedding about to happen) and enjoyed a homely breakfast and a relax on the platform before hitting the road. Our accommodation (the bridal suite) was a unique amazing experience, situated just to the end of the hotel you have privacy and comfort in one of Irelands best bridal suite (a room tip for all couples, you could charge your fellow guests to view it as all of ours wanted a sneak peek into this unique bridal suite). We had a few nice surprises organized by the hotel on the day that made it all the better, i wont divulge anymore as they are that bit more special when they are a surprise.
Finally, and again a big thank you to Vivienne, Henry & Emmett for all before the day, on the day and after the day, you truly made our day as special as it could be in your amazing hotel. If you are looking for a venue for your wedding (or any party, or just a night away) we couldn't recommend THE STATION HOUSE HOTEL any more.

We had a beautiful and perfect day on Friday at our wedding and we thank you, and all the staff at the Station House Hotel, so much! It was seamless as you are such professionals at what you do. So again, thank you. It was actually so good that we stayed until Tuesday.
Karan & Andy, Friday 25th August 2017
When we where looking at venues for our wedding one of the most important things to us was privacy, quirky venue, great food and service... well The Station House does not disappoint. This venue is one of the most unusual ones in Ireland, given its outdoor space and history we both fell in love with this on arrival. The Station House team to name a few, Vivienne, Henry, Conor and Emmet are the most pleasant and reliable team I have ever dealt with, they go above and beyond to insure you are kept relaxed and anything you want on the day happens no matter what! The food is amazing which was very important to us. The outdoor cermony was amazing, all our guests where blown away by the cermony in the forest. The afters in the room is brilliant as it's not to big, just right and we had 155 guests! Rooms are clean and in fitting with the hotel old fashioned. We had a dinner the night before and The Station House handled everything so well, as I keep on saying the staff have you only on the day, no other parties, and they make sure everything you discussed and paid for happens. I would highly recommend this venue, go check this out and thanks again to Henry and Vivienne, the wedding we had will live with us for ever, you made our dream come through! Can't wait to pop down again to see you all and have dinner!
Paul and Michael, Friday 21st July 2017
Obviously we'll send an official thank you once we've returned from our honeymoon but I couldn't go without sending a quick thank you to you and all the staff at the Station House who made Saturday such a fun and memorable day for us. Everything was exactly as we wanted it and we were blessed with the weather meaning we could have our service in the gorgeous turn table.
Thank you for all the hard work you put in, it was very much appreciated.

Amazing Wedding Venue
We got married here in July 2017. From our first meeting, we felt secure in the knowledge that everything was being looked after. Vivienne was a pleasure to deal with all through the planning and on the day itself. Henry and Emmett made the day run so smoothly and the number one thing our guests commented on was how friendly and accommodating all the staff were.
The grounds of the Hotel are amazing and well kept. A fairy tale setting for a wedding and it has beautiful photo opportunities.
We couldn't fault the food at all and there was plenty of it too.
We stayed in the Signal Suite, it was small but charming and cosy, exactly what we wanted.
The few small hiccups we encountered on the day were relayed back to Vivienne after the day and she dealt with them accordingly. Over all we are 100% happy with our choice of Venue and we would be happy to recommend it to anyone for their wedding day.
Amanda (July 2017)
Thank you so much for everything over the past months, we reAly did have the most amazing day! The staff working there are a credit to the hotel and could not have been nicer the day of the wedding!
Vivienne thank you so much for helping to make Saturday a day we will never forget!
Ciara and Niall (Dec 2016)
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and all the staff at The station House Hotel. We had a fantastic day on the 3-12-2016 and are so happy that we chose to have our wedding here.
While the venue is beautiful and exactly what we wanted it has to be said that it was the staff who made the day so exceptional for us. It is something that all our guests commented on, they were made to feel very welcome in a personable manner as if they had been going to the Station house all their lives.
If you could pass on a very special thank you to Henry who is just fantastic at what he does, he put us so much at ease while having the craic, and gave great advise. He is great at reading a crowd and he really helped ensure that we had the easy going party we wanted.
Also the bar staff particularly to lads who stayed up till the end, I think we were the last ones standing around 6am. They couldn't have been nicer, at a time when i'm sure all they wanted to do was go home to bed.
I really hope the hotel realise how lucky they are to have such wonderful staff as it is ye who made our day go as wonderful as it went, thank you.
Orla and David
Just wanted to say thank you to you, Henry and all the staff there for everything and all your help on our big day!
Everything turned out lovely and we really enjoyed it.
Catherine & Oliver (Nov 2016)
Myself and Paul can't thank you enough for all your help and time coming up to our wedding and then all your amazing help and running around on our big day! It was truly the most amazing day and we couldn't have envisioned it going any better. You were a dream to deal with and everything was seamless. We hope you, Henry and your two children have a very Happy Christmas and an amazing New Year.
Marian And Paul (Sept 2016)
We got married in The Station House hotel on 18 June and we could not have been happier with the venue. Everything was perfect on the day and we were treated like royalty. Henry and the team had everything under control from start to finish. They exude confidence and control and it enabled us to just relax and enjoy the day. All of our guests really enjoyed the day and were raving about how beautiful a spot it is and how good the food was. The little personal touches on arrival and checking out the next day were a touch of pure class. We booked our wedding as a package deal and all of the vendors were also absolutely fantastic. Strongly recommend The Station House as a wedding venue. To everyone at The Station House, thank you from the bottom of our hearts and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Gerry and Rebecca
We had our wedding here last month and we couldn't have hoped for a better day. Everything went perfectly. The entire team are incredibly professional and friendly, and made it very easy to just relax and enjoy the day. All of our guests loved the venue and the food (which was incredible). The little personal touches throughout the day and when checking out really were a touch of class. Thanks for everything.
On behalf of Roma & I, we just want to say a massive Thank you to the hotel and all the staff for the amazing job they did for our wedding there. It was absolutely perfect, and we, along with all the guests loved every minute of the 3 days we were there. The food, the staff and the venue was amazing and you made the day so special for us. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much.
I attended a wedding on June 25th at your Hotel for Ciaran Conroy and his wife Amanda Conroy. The ceremony outside was spectacular. Beautiful Hotel and surroundings. Their wedding will definitely be one to remember.
I love everything about this quirky country house. Dreamy setting, if you're looking for something out of the ordinary. Excellent food. Our wedding package was tailor made, yet affordable and looked like a million Dollars. We still go back from time to time and get treated like royalties by Henry Franco, the Manager.
We had our wedding in November 2013 over a weekend, those that could not be there on the day had Sunday lunch, it was like a second wedding celebration, band, buffet, drinks and Craic. The staff are the best, the chef is fab and every time we're there, they make us feel special. Thank you for being part of our special day.
Gillian and Ian Doyle
We had our wedding here in October 2013 and had the most amazing day. The staff go above and beyond and the family ran business ethic shines through in the way they treat their customers. Beautiful!
We had our wedding here on the 21st of March. Everything went so well, amazing place for a wedding. We had a fab day.
We had our wedding here in Nov 2011 loved every single minute of it.. Ceremony and reception was just so well organised and the staff really made the day amazing for everyone... Couldn't meet nicer people and they put on a fantastic day for everyone... Can't sing the praises enough for everyone who works here. It really is a team effort well done... Highly highly recommend them for any occasion xxx...
We celebrated our wedding reception at The Station House Hotel, Kilmessan on August 1st 2015. We had a wonderful day from start to finish. The hotel staff and receptionists were always friendly and welcoming. The venue is very quaint and picturesque. Ideal for photos and for the guests to mingle. The champagne reception on arrival was lovely and the fresh scones and jam were relished by our guests. The meal itself was excellent and very tasty. The food was nicely presented, hot, plentiful and tasted great. The service by the waiting staff was punctual and polite and all our guests were very well looked after. The reception hall was an ideal size for our numbers and we danced the night away. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day and we had a ball! The bridal suite is very comfortable and unique. The hotel recommended some vendors to us for our flowers, cake, photos etc. They were all top quality vendors and they worked very well with us and the hotel. We would highly recommend this hotel as a wedding venue. If you are looking for somewhere with the personal touch you'll be very happy here.
Harriet & Enda
Our wedding at the Station house was simply wonderful. The wedding team were very helpful and made the whole ceremony and the preparation roll very smoothly and this is exactly what you need during such a stressful time. We've mainly chosen this venue for a very high food quality as we are rather fussy and demanding about food. The 5 course dinner and the canapées were delicious and all our quests complemented it. We were lucky enough to have a great weather so the ceremony was outdoors and this is what we always were hoping for. The station house hotel has a beautiful grounds, kids were playing and having fun outside riding bikes, skateboards etc. while adults could finally relax in a bit of sunshine.
From a financial point of view, this venue was a great value, the fact that some wine was included in the menu saved us loads of money and allowed us to purchase more drinks for our guests at the arrival. If I was to get married again I would definitely have it in the Station house Hotel and what's the most important all our guests loved too.The station house hotel made our special day Really special and totally hassle free. If someone was asking, would definitely and confidently recommend it to everyone.
What can I say only the biggest thank you to all at The Station House Hotel for making our wedding a day a day we will never forget. From the staff to the food to every single perfect moment and memory you gave us will be in our hearts forever. The package was amazing the food was stunning and the staff made it all happen. Would defininitely recommend this hotel for everything and cant wait for our 1 year anniversary to get back down. So thank you all again for our PERECT wedding day xxx

We had our wedding at the Station House Hotel on the 30/06/12 and I can’t speak highly enough about how all the staff helped make our day so special. From the time we arrived the staff went out of their way to make it a fantastic occasion for us and all our guests. Our guests had a brilliant time and couldn’t say enough about everything from the hotel, the beautiful grounds for photos, the delicious food, the service and hospitality of the management and staff. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone planning a wedding or a special event or even just to go for a meal in their award winning Signal restaurant where the food is exceptional and great value for money.
Karen & Paul Nolan
I had my wedding in the station house on the 12th of july this year and cannot speak highly enough about the staff they made our day so special. All our quests had a great day and spoke really highly about the food and how friendly the staff were. I would recommend this hotel to anyone planning a wedding, I wouldn't change anything about it.
We had our wedding here on 21st July 2012 and it was simply stunning. From the day we booked our wedding Sarah was in constant touch and made things so easy for us along with Henry, and i'd like to give special praise to Derek who on the day made everything go so smoothly. All our guests had a brilliant time and raved on about everything from the hotel, the beautiful grounds for photos, the amount of food, and the standard of the food, the service and hospitality of the management and staff. I would highly recommend this venue for anyone looking for somewhere special for their special day, or even to someone looking for a nice place to go for a meal. The Station House Hotel made our day so perfect and for that i want to say a big thank you to everyone at The Station House Hotel.
Steven & Lisa Reay
We got married in The Station House Hotel last Summer and what an amazing day. We fell in love with the hotel the first time we visited and knew it was just perfect for us - beautiful grounds, private venue for us and our guests and such a lovely atmosphere and staff. We got married in the hotel and the whole day was fantastic... everything ran so smoothly and even if it didn't, we didn't know anything about it, the staff were so great! Everyone thought the food was very very tasty, brilliant quality and so much to go around that there were seconds and thirds being offered. The rooms were 'quaint' but no-one complained, they were so thrilled to only have to walk upstairs from the dance floor to go to bed! And the houses in the nearby estate were perfect for our guests that were families with children. And the signal box which is the wedding suite is just perfect! Overall, a fantastic place to celebrate our wedding day in such a relaxed, fun filled and beautiful place - such brilliant memories!!!
Jane & Eoin
We wed and partied at the Station House, it was absolutely brilliant. The staff couldn't do enough for everyone. We had three gatecrashers, and two no shows, but the staff changed the seating to accommodate without a single grumble and nobody noticed the move, so there was no uncomfortable moments.
It rained, hard, for the whole day, but they staff were there with broad smiles, brollies and bubbly what a team.
If you're thinking of the Station House, don't hesitate...they are professional wonders. Thank you,
John & Evelyn Sherlock.
I got married in the Station House at the end of Jan 2012. What an amazing venue, honestly I could not fault it. Food was fantastic, service was efficient, and all the staff were extremely friendly and couldn’t have done more to make the day special. The grounds and the picturesque buildings provided a great place for photo’s. Charming place, a real home from home.
We got married at the Station House Aug 2011. It was a fantastic day and the staff were excellent. The hotel itself is in a secluded setting and all our guests felt they were tucked away from the rest of the world - they were very impressed with our choice of venue. We were very impressed with the atmosphere and character of the hotel. We had 80 guests and the function room was a perfect size. The hotel was presented just as it had been at the wedding open day we visited prior to booking. We would not hesitate to recommend the venue for any occasion.
