A seamless wedding experience

Dawn and the entire Marlfield team were consummate professionals from start to finish. We had visited earlier in the year for an afternoon tea and fell in love with the venue. After we went down to meet the team and get a tour of the house, we knew we had to book it for our wedding. Second only to the amazing staff is the amazing food. So much of it sourced locally or grown in their gardens, so many of guests are still raving about it. Dawn is an absolute star, always there at the end of the phone and always had great advice if we were ever on the fence about what was the right choice to make. We can honestly say we wouldn’t have changed a thing about our day and a lot of that credit is due to Dawn and Marlfield.

Wedding Venue 5 Stars is not enough

Married at Marlfield 26.7.19 - arranged through Dawn from Sydney and she made it so easy. We didn’t see the venue until day before but it surpassed expectations. Stayed the night before and eat in the Duck restaurant which is a great setting with even better food. The whole thing from arrival to the wedding and the morning after could not have gone better. Dawn is amazing and special mention to Dermot who was excellent on the wedding day as were all of the staff. Awesome hotel and venue for a wedding or special occasion. Rich & Mairead

Special thank you to Dawn at front of house and Jacques who was so attentive and professional all day and evening.

Wonderful Wedding Location

We have stayed in the hotel on quite a few occasions and eaten in the restaurant over a period of 30 years. Therefore we had no decision to make in selecting Marlfied House for our wedding in August 2018. All I can say is the whole process was so wonderfully managed by the whole team - it all went like a dream. It is a sensational destination to hold a wedding and well worth getting exclusive use of the hotel on the day. The wedding organiser Dawn was exceptional - always on hand - attentive - listened to our requirements and delivered on all of them with a smile. No one could ask for a better place to celebrate their big day. Thanks to all the management and staff for their hard work especially Emma Jane, Patricia and Jacques... and of course it was always lovely to see Mary Bowe on the day itself. Margaret and Laura are running a really great hotel and the Duck restaurant is a superb addition. Can't wait to come back to stay again

Wedding Venue

Our daughter and her (now) husband chose Marlfield House as their wedding venue in August and what a fabulous choice they made. We couldn't have asked for a better place; gardens and house were breathtaking. The attention to detail from all the staff was second to none. Dawn was there to see to our every need and even attended to needs we didn't realise we had.
We would highly recommend Marlfield House as a venue to anybody looking for first-class personal service. Thank you again to Dawn and all the staff, and Margaret who was always in the background with a watchful eye. We will definitely revisit.

We had a fantastic day

My wife and I had our wedding reception at Marlfield recently and we could not have asked for a better venue. We were very lucky to get a last second cancelation in August, and even though we had less than 3 months to organise the wedding, Marlfield were more than happy to accommodate us, and we never once felt like we were rushed or under any kind of pressure. In fact it was the exact opposite.

Dawn our designated wedding planner put us to ease immediately, taking us through every last detail of the day, and was always on hand with helpful advice / templates and great contacts for anything wedding related. She turned what could have ben a very stressful situation into a fun and enjoyable experience. Dawn is an absolute super star and we could not have asked for a better, more bubbly, genuinely caring and professional wedding coordinator. Jeff the head chef played an absolute blinder and designed a really special and delicious wedding feast that we and our guests absolutely loved. The staff were so welcoming and attentive and always on hand to accommodate whatever requests went their way. The Bowe family opened their beautiful house to us and did not disappoint. Margaret was a very warm and generous host, extending her time to help us with some of the finer details of the day and ensuring all our needs were being looked after. Even Lumi the peacock at Marlfield did his best to welcome guests and put on a very colourful display.

I just wanted to thank you for our beautiful day

I never had a single doubt about it not going flawlessly. We had endless complements about not only the stunning venue but the remarkable staff. Yourself and all the team are unbelievable and really made the day feel so special. There was nothing that was too much trouble and it didn't go unnoticed by the guests or ourselves. Thank you again for everything and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Thanks again for everything

Thank you so so much to you and the team at Marlfield! Our day was perfect - we had such a wonderful time and everyone commented on how friendly, helpful and professional the staff were at Marlfield. The House looked stunning and we can't imagine a better setting to have celebrated our wedding. In goes without saying that our guests loved the food and we were delighted with how the menu worked out.

Thank you to you in particular as every detail was covered and we really felt like you had gone out of your way to help make our day the best it could be (your advice around timings were invaluable!!!). You dealt with our indecisiveness brilliantly and helped steer us in what was definitely the right route.

The Perfect Wedding Venue

We had the most exceptional wedding day in Marlfield House. Dawn, our wedding coordinator was so warm, friendly and organised throughout the whole process and made it so easy for us, we really couldn't say enough about how supportive she was throughout our planning and on the day. Our wedding food was really delicious and a special mention of Ruan, our chef on the day, who really went the extra mile to cater for our many vegetarian guests and produced outstanding fresh, local food which we all enjoyed so much. The staff were all very polite, professional and attentive and the family themselves greeted us and made us feel very at home. The hotel itself is beautiful kept, immaculately clean and very luxurious and the lush ground outside provided the perfect backdrop for our wedding pictures and reception outside on the lawn. We would highly recommend Marlfield House as a wedding destination, Dawn and her team certainly made it a perfect day for us.

Our daughter and her husband held their wedding reception at Marlfield recently. It surpassed their own high standards of hospitality and excellence. In particular, I would like to thank Dawn Quick for all her help, courtesy and professionalism from the very beginning until we checked out. She is a true professional in her role as Wedding Co-ordinator and, while The Bowe Family at Marlfield provide excellence, they are all the better for having Dawn on the team.
Thank you all so much for a magical few days. Eithne and Frank

Thank you so much for your time and dedication

The weekend at Marlfield could not have gone any better for us, it was like a fairy tale from start to finish and we will never forget it.
Really what made it was the beautiful surroundings and atmosphere of the house and the attention to detail of all of the staff.
The food served at the wedding dinner was the best that we and most of our guests have ever had!

It is the staff that make it truly exceptional.

We held our wedding reception in October 2017, in Marlfield House, Gorey, Co. Wexford. From the moment we stepped into Marlfield on a wet April day with yellow daffodils blooming everywhere, we knew immediately we had found our wedding venue. The welcoming entrance, warm cosy fires, and magnificent gardens we were immediately sold. We looked at no other venue from that moment on. I had the pleasure of dealing with Dawn Quick, Marlfield House wedding co-ordinator. We quickly booked the last available Saturday date in October, encouraged by Dawn who advised the house and gardens come alive in the autumn, and she was so right. Dawn is an absolute gem and an asset to Marlfield House. Her organisational skills, competence and warm bubbly nature cannot be matched. She helped me arrange every detail and kept me on track. On the day of the wedding she was on hand for any query and ensured I had nothing to concern myself with (including providing some calming Spanish music!). I will forever be grateful to Dawn for her patience and support. The whole team at Marlfield are exceptional, Katia and Patricia were superb throughout the day, and Musa and Lorcan, kept the guests entertained throughout the evening. Doireann was so helpful with room allocation and late changes. The owner Mrs. Bowe kindly lent my father cufflinks due to a last minute oversight. Every member of staff (and I apologise if I have forgotten anyone) was obliging and utterly professional at all times. I cannot thank them enough. There is no doubt that Marlfield House is a stunning venue, however, it is the staff that make it truly exceptional.

The most beautiful place

I got married here. The "biggest" day of your life....I could NOT fault ANY aspect of the food, service, kindness of staff and attention to detail. The staff are second to none, especially one Ms. Quick.... We stayed here before our wedding, the night of our wedding and again for our anniversary. We will continue to stay for our anniversary year after year. The place is so beautifully maintained and welcoming. It is worth every penny.
