Weddings at Ballykealey House


We’ve just been married at Ballykealey house and I honestly cannot recommend it enough! I choose to get ready in one of their lodges on site the morning which was so handy to have it available!

I honestly cannot say enough about the staff and in particular Angela the wedding coordinator, she was always on hand and never not at the other end of the phone.. my wedding was so stress free and I really think that was at the hands of Angela!

The house itself is absolutely fabulous and my photographs are going to be amazing, all of our guests commented on it and it really just felt exclusive to us for the day! So cosy & welcoming!

The food, what can I say, just divine.. the chef, James is so lovely and so so good at his job, the service and presentation was second to none.. I still have people phoning me and telling me how much they enjoyed their meal, which was served quickly and efficiently with no delays and plenty of extra portions for everyone!

We partied the night away and had the best weekend of our lives in Ballykealey House!

I wouldn’t change a thing..

Thanks so much to all the staff at Ballykealey, your hospitality and care was so much appreciated, you made us feel like a king & queen and our guests enjoyed our day just as much as we did!

You will be coming so highly recommended by myself and my new husband aswell as all of our friends and family!

Thank You again,

Patrick & Valerie Hennessy!
