We are back in the land of the living and just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for such an amazing day!! from start to finish we were looked after - Geraldine kept my nerves in check right up until the day before the wedding where Laura took over and went out of her way to make sure we were all ok , Jacob outdone himself with the food which people are still raving about! All of the staff throughout the day were like busy little bees looking after us and we cant thank you all enough, its a day we will never forget so thank you from the bottom of our hearts :)

Highly recommended

We dealt with Katie and Saoirse throughout the final stages of planning our wedding and over the weekend itself. They couldn't do enough for us, everything ran so smoothly with accommodation and the Bridal House is newly refurbished and just so gorgeous. We were due to have an outdoor ceremony and with 10 minutes until the ceremony, the heavens opened! The staff quickly moved the ceremony to the beautiful covered decking area overlooking Blessington Lakes, and our guests felt the turnaround was so smooth and professional. We had quite a busy day with bands playing at our drinks reception as well as after the meal, and staff were on hand to support us throughout. We had about 20% of our guests eating vegan or vegetarian food, and the chef, Ray, ensured that everyone was very well looked after. I had serious issues with my bank when trying to make the payment and the staff were so patient and accommodating while I sorted it out. We cannot fault this venue and would highly recommend it for its food, friendly staff, amazing scenery and excellent accommodation for guests.

Our wedding was in Ireland but it could have been anywhere in the world. The ceremony took place outside overlooking Blessington lakes and definitely had the wow factor. It had a rustic feel that was felt throughout the Avon Ri resort, with a beautiful festival style tent sheltering our reception in the library bar. The day flowed from start to finish and I believe that that’s the vibe this relaxed setting offers. Choosing to have our wedding day here is a decision that we are delighted with. It really is a wonderland where even indoors the stunning views and interior offer the outdoors. We can’t express our gratitude to all of the staff in the Avon Ri for the most magical wedding imaginable. From start to finish the staff went above and beyond to make the experience a personal one where attention to detail and customer service were the makers of the best day of our lives. Myself and Duncan will miss you Katie. You are top of your game when it comes to wedding planning, Thank you! Laura you are super thank u and your team for going above beyond for us and our guests the service is fantastic! We would highly recommend the Avon Ri to any couple who want all of the above! Wish we could do it again..
