Without a doubt the happiest day of our lives!

An exquisite country house hotel with warmth, charm, stunning rooms, beautiful grounds, delicious food; Marlfield has a wonderful staff - a lovely group of people to welcome us. Nothing was too much trouble for the Marlfield team. Working with all the staff at Marlfield was such a pleasant experience. Their wedding planner Dawn and the other girls there were just out on their own ... even down to sourcing a carer for an elderly family member! Dawn, we will always remember you for that one! Any time we visited, we were warmly greeted and looked after very well - we still are! The team in Marlfield took the stress out of planning our reception: they were able to advise on all the options in terms of canapés, food, wine, bar, seating, music, cake display, room allocations, buffet lunch the next day etc; They were incredibly profession in how they attended to their duties, looked after us and our guests so well and were kind and caring too. They went out of their way to make our day very special.

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.

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.

So many special memories

After getting engaged we visited quite a few similar properties in our search for the perfect wedding venue but we were not bowled over. Thankfully someone (who had attended a family wedding at Marlfield a couple of years previous) suggested a visit to Marlfield House- we looked at the website and really liked the look of the house so called to arrange a viewing. Upon walking through the doors of Marlfield House into the lobby, we knew instantly that we had found our special venue. The ambience was lovely and relaxed and I immediately got a very special feeling about the place. We were shown around and I fell more in love with the house room by room- the decor is dreamy and the place is immaculate. Every details is considered and comfort and charm work perfectly together here. It is very obvious that Marlfield is lovingly cared for and run by the proprietors. Every aspect of the house was perfect- the gardens, the amazing food, the bedrooms, the beautiful conservatory.... On the day of the wedding everything went beautifully. Our guests, a lot of who had not been to Marlfield House before, were very well looked after and were very impressed with everything. A special mention must go to the staff at Marlfield- they are fantastic- friendly, competent and they happily went out of their way to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of our guests. A very special note of thanks to Dawn who my mother said was like a 3rd Bridesmaid to me on the day- nothing was too much trouble! Thank you for all your help.

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.

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.

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!

thank you for the most amazing and wonderful day

We would like to thank all the staff for looking after us so well. The atmosphere was so special, the house looked fabulous and the food was delicious! All of our guests were raving about the venue, most of whom had never been before. I believe some will be returning and have booked in with you already! The conservatory looked stunning. The gardens- wow! I would like to say a special thank you to my 'guardian angel' Dawn who was my 'phone a friend' throughout the process. Dawn, you were so helpful, thank you for all your advice, useful tips and being such a pleasure to deal with. There definitely were some stressful moments but you got us through it!!! Your very good at your job. You do it so are so professional and such a lady.
