    Amazing wedding venue!

    We recently got married in The Lord Bagenal Inn and couldn't recommend it highly enough. James, Sue and Niall are so easy to deal with and not one of our many requests were an issue. We truly enjoyed our day, from the amazing drinks reception, the beautiful hotel and the outstanding food, it was all just way above our expectations. The hotel went above and beyond, nothing was too much hassle for them especially Niall who was very helpful and ensured our whole day ran smoothly. We just wish we could do it all again. Thanks again to the whole team in the Lord Bagenal.

    Lord Bagenal Inn's reply:

    Lesley & Cathal thank you for taking the time to share your review with other wedding couples. We wish you could do it all again too!!
    We wish you both a happy and healthy journey together as Mr & Mrs and look forward to welcoming you back to the Lord Bagenal

    The Most Perfect Experience

    The Lord Bagenal is hands down one of the best venues for weddings. Sue was so helpful throughout the whole entire planning of the day from the time we arrived to the end of the night every little detail was taken into consideration.
    The day of the wedding was run by Niall who made everything run so smoothly! He was so accommodating and couldn’t have done enough to make sure our day was perfect!
    All the staff in The Bagenal were also amazing and so friendly! No request was an issue to them and the top table was looked after so well by Connie and her team!
    The food was beautiful and it is great value for money, our guests have not stopped talking about how lovely the food was and how amazing The Bagenal was also!
    If your looking for a venue that is set in a beautiful, area, has fabulous food at great value, friendly staff you cannot go wrong with The Lord Bagenal. They just do weddings fantastically!!!

    Best day ever

    A brilliant day had by all, thanks in large part to the staff at the hotel who couldn't do enough for us. From the moment we chose The Lord Bagenal to be our wedding venue, to the following day when we left to start the journey as husband and wife, the service has been exceptional. We are really appreciative of Sue's help & guidance planning the big day and Niall's efforts on the day making sure everything went to plan & our guests were well looked after. We highly recommend The Lord Bagenal as a wedding venue.

    Lord Bagenal Inn's reply:

    Thank you Amanda & Donal for taking the time to review your wedding day at the Lord Bagenal. We wish you a life time of health, wealth & happiness for your future together and look forward to welcoming you back.

    Myself and new husband arranged a small intimate wedding with Sue in Lord Bagenal Inn. From start to finish the organization was flawless! Our wedding was above and beyond what we expected. The staff are absolutely exceptional, every single detail was catered for. The food, atmosphere, rooms were all amazing, I couldnt have imagined our wedding any other way, and we are beyond happy we chose the Lord Bagenal and would not hestiate to recommend to any couples looking for an amazing location!

    The Best Wedding Venue in Ireland...

    For anyone looking for a Wedding venue that ticks all the boxes, then look no further than The Lord Bagenal.

    We got married on Friday the 25th of March and our Wedding Day was everything we could have imagined and more. We can only put this down to an amazing team at the hotel. From the very first point of contact to the second we were departing; nothing could be faulted. The Lord Bagenal is a home away from home and offers a friendly welcome and service way beyond anywhere else. We were dealing directly with Niall, Sue, Kate & Connie. They are all so great at their job. We were blown away by their constant willingness to help and accommodate our requests. The team as a whole made sure our guests had a great day and everyone complimented all aspects of the day over and over. It’s all the little things that made the day so special. Sue’s positive emails, Niall was always there to guide us and keep things on track, Connie made sure we got something to eat during the day as things got busy, the extra portions offered at dinner, the warm welcome for our guests at the resident’s bar, the ‘Mammy’s’ breakfast the next morning. The Village of Leighlinbridge is also a perfect location to capture some lovely Wedding photos so there’s no need to go too far from the hotel which saves precious time on the day. This allowed us to enjoy time at our pre-reception with our guests.

    A Wedding Couple always want to hear positive feedback from their guests. It was so lovely to hear all the different compliments when people were checking out. The food, the rooms, the staff and the breakfast just to mention a few.
    A million thanks to each and every member of staff that played a part in our Big Day. We will always have such fond memories of The Lord Bagenal.

    Lord Bagenal Inn's reply:

    Brid & Padraig thank you most sincerely for taking the time to share your wedding review. We are delighted that you finally got to have your wedding day with your family and friends. We hope you will make many more fond memories at the Lord Bagenal

Thanks to all especially Sue.

    Great wedding venue

    Our wedding was cancelled in March 2020 like many weddings. We decided with a bit of uncertainty to go with a date in August 2020. We knew it would be different but we felt it was best to move ahead and get married. The Lord Bagnal did everything they could to ensure we had a great time and we did. The food was fantastic, the atmosphere likewise. The staff were so happy to see a bride and groom in the building again as we were the first since lockdown and we couldn’t be happier how the day went. The day was warm enough to have drinks in the garden and we felt with a smaller number of people we got to speak with them all and thank them for coming to make the day. Great wedding venue

    Lord Bagenal Inn's reply:

    Thank you Geraldine & Noel for taking the time to review your wedding experience at the Lord Bagenal last week. We were delighted to finally be able to share your day with you both. Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness. All the best in the future.

    Amazing Venue

    We had our wedding ceremony and reception here in October 2019. The hotel is beautiful the staff are amazing and the food excellent.
    From planning the wedding with Sue to booking the rooms with Michael and the day itself with Niall, everything was coordinated to perfection and ran flawlessly. All of those mentioned and all other staff we dealt with were extremely professional and helpful, they really are lovely people and made our day perfect. We would highly highly recommend The Lord Bagenal Inn for any wedding, the team are absolutely fantastic and when they say “your wedding your way” they really mean it.

    Thank you all so so much.
