    Just Perfect

    We had our wedding in the Manor House in Palmerstown House Estate on 25th May, we couldn’t have wished for a better day. The weather was fab and we got to have our ceremony outside. Sinead and Chelsea made the planning so easy, they were always at hand to answer our questions and offer advice. The day was just perfect and we were so relaxed because we knew everything would be in place. The staff are amazing, they couldn’t do enough for us. The manor house and grounds are stunning and are a perfect backdrop for pictures. Anyone looking for an alternative wedding venue should definitely check out Palmerstown House Estate, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks again to Chelsea, Arnold and all the team for an amazing day

    Amazing!

    We got married in Palmerstown House in October 2017 and it was perfect from start to finish. We don't live in Ireland so had to coordinate it all from overseas and Sinead and the team were incredible. They were so relaxed and easy to deal with, really responsive and on hand with great ideas and tips to make the day perfect. The venue was perfect on the day and beautifully decorated for us. They thought of so many additional touches in the lanterns scattered about etc. The food was AMAZING! Our guests raved about it! The whole day went so smoothly and we enjoyed every second. We would thoroughly recommend Palmerstown House - it really is such a special venue!

    All Inclusive Package

    Chelsea, Sinead and the other staff at Palmerstown House Estate were so helpful and lovely. The facilities were beautiful and my guests are still talking about it. I couldn't have chosen a more perfect venue. The entire house and grounds were exclusive to me and my guests. We chose the all-inclusive package and the girls there organised the cake supplier, one of our bands and the photographer all of which were very professional and so talented. They went out of their way to supply hot chocolate as well as tea and coffee as not many of our guests drink tea or coffee and they had lots of shloer because very few of our guests drink. Our glasses were never empty! But most of all, they were so good at keeping me calm throughout the day and kept everything running smoothly. I can't thank the staff enough for making our day so special.

    Perfect Day

    We had been a looking for a wedding venue with plenty of character and just something different, we had been looking online and came across Palmerstown House Estate, we live in the North of Ireland but the venue looked too good to be true, so we made the trip up to Naas and couldn't believe what we had came across, we booked our wedding for 17th August 2017. From the first conversation I had with Sinead into organizing our wedding you knew you had someone professional looking after you and advising you on your options, and also to Chelsea in the run up to the wedding, nothing was ever a hassle, and on the day itself it was perfect thanks to all staff including the two Dave's who look after us and our guests. Our guest are still taking about the venue and the food, thank you so much Palmerstown.

    Excellent venue and service!

    We were lucky enough to celebrate our wedding in the manor house at Palmerstown House Estate on August 12th 2017. From our first viewing of the previous September we fell in love the the venue, it truly is a must see. On our first visit we just happened to meet Dave in the golf club and he couldn’t do enough to for us, including a private tour of the house. We were sold there and then. Over the next 11 months it was a pleasure getting to know the staff and no matter what we requested there was never any issues. They truly couldn’t do enough to help. The day itself was everything we had hoped and dreamed off. I can’t recommend Palmerstown House or its staff highly enough. Excellent venue and service!!!!!

    Magical Venue

    The Perfect Wedding Venue

    Sonya and I celebrated our wedding with 110 guests in August, in the Manor House.

    From our very first meeting with Laura we knew this was where we wanted to have our wedding . We opted for a civil ceremony in the Main Hall (within the Manor House). The day and night were perfect in every way and even now weeks later our guests are still commenting on how fantastic the venue and especially the staff were. They truly deserve the highest praise and I would recommend any couple too consider this as your wedding venue.

    The setting, hall and rooms are amazing.

    We fell in love with what can only be described as a magical venue while we visited Santa's House Express. Love it love it love it and can wait to go back again this xmas!!.

    Magical & Memorable

    A magical, memorable welcome was shown to us and each of our guests at Palmerstown House for our special day. As the first gay wedding in the House, we enjoyed a positive, affirming and special service from all the friendly staff who made our celebration a most joyous occasion for all our guests, who cannot stop talking about the venue! We are indebted to Chelsea and all the friendly and exuberant staff who worked so hard to make our day special.

    Our Wedding Weekend at Palmerstown House Estate

    We really loved having Palmerstown House Estate as our wedding venue, we were very lucky to be able to have the whole house for Friday, Saturday and Sunday of our wedding weekend. The staff and service was excellent throughout and they made us feel at ease and well looked after for the whole weekend. We planned our wedding from overseas so to be able to have good faith in our hosts was important to us and they delivered.
