False Promises & Lack of professionalism
I gave this venue the benefit of the doubt. However, there is no justification of the lack of management in this venue. I booked this venue for my wedding for summer 2021 including accommodation with ceremony and reception to take place on the grounds of The Avon back in early 2020 and it is worth mentioning I first visited the venue with my partner back in December 2019. Throughout our numerous visits there was a change of wedding coordinator 3 times. Prior to COVID we had a break booked to stay in the venue which was unfortunate cancelled following the email I received that my accommodation for my wedding will no longer be available because the houses are to be rented to residents for a long term basis. This as a result broke the contract that we had with the venue. I received a refund of only €250 and promised to receive the remaining €750 mid to end of October 2020. It is mid January 2021 and I have not received any response to any of my emails or calls. I understand that it is hard times but this venue is far from what they are advertising and promising the public. Will not be coming back nor recommending to anyone. Awful is not even the word. Do not book!Sent on 16/01/2021

Such an Amazing Day!
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 :)Sent on 11/11/2019
