Here’s what happy couples have to say about our Wicklow wedding venue
We were blown away by the service throughout the day on absolutely all fronts. Our guests absolutely loved the food, my dad who is almost 65 said it was the nicest beef he had ever tasted! To look after all the vegan and vegetarian diners so well and without fuss was fantastic too. I can’t remember the name of the blonde lady in black who held a list throughout the dinner service and I wanted to mention her by name in my note but it escapes me despite chatting with her on Sunday! She was so lovely and a picture of calm in what I am sure was a busy busy dinner service. Nothing was too much trouble for any member of staff, and the service staff looking after the top table were so friendly.
I have been told that the turnaround to use the covered balcony for the ceremony was super fast and faultless and we were so happy that it happened up there in the end, it was so private and intimate to share that space with our guests and take in the views.
You yourself played a blinder throughout the day keeping on top of everything and keeping everything moving. Saoirse was so patient with me trying and failing to pay the bill on numerous occasions! You can tell her I have been laughing at myself quite a lot for accusing the fraud prevention centre representative of being suspicious!!!
After our experience with our former venue the treatment we received from all at Avon Ri was just so so appreciated. We will be raving about the place for as long as we live and will be back to visit no doubt very soon! Thanks again for everything. Mr & Mrs Cashell, July2017
My daughter Helena and her husband Darren had their wedding on 26th May 2017 and it was the most amazing day. What Isabel did to make this day so special, to all the staff, from the minute we arrived to the end of the night. They were just fabulous. The perfect place to have a wedding. We will be back to have a weekend away as the scenery, the walks and the staff are simply fabulous. Keep it up! Deirdre Wilson, May 2017
A million thanks to Isobel for all the organising and putting up with my melt down on zipping up my dress… thanks to Kate for all the gargle… Sinead for her great ideas… Anna and Joanne for waiting on us… Ray and his wonder-delish food…. Marie, Monika, Mairead for all the great service… Michael for his exemplary customer service… Saoirse for her sweet caring ways… Eileen for all her furniture… and in general the amazing way you made our wedding so much fun and memorable with everyone. Karen and Brian, May 2017
Avon Rí was the only venue we visited for our wedding day. Once we saw that view and the facilities they offered, we knew this was the place we were going to be married. Isobel and the team were amazing from the very start. They walked us through every step of the journey and helped us with all our planning and vision for the day. No question or query was too big or small for Isobel, she made everything so easy and enjoyable. We never felt stressed or worried, we knew everything was in control and being taken care of, which is what we needed as we were planning the whole wedding from Australia.
I can’t thank the team at Avon Rí enough for making our wedding day what it was, a once in a lifetime, unforgettable moment in our lives. Everything was absolutely perfect, the staff are truly amazing, all the guests commented on how lovely and helpful they were. The food was absolutely amazing, great quality and very tasty and they were very accommodating with last minute requests for guests meals.
We would highly recommend Avon Rí to anyone looking for an unforgettable day with the the most helpful team. We wish we could do it all again.
We cannot thank you all enough, you made our wedding day perfect. Lisa & Andy
My husband and I decided to have our wedding here in July. We were fortunate enough to meet the very lovely Sinead Fennelly who helped us to plan our day and pulled out all of the stops for us and more. I cannot thank you enough for a fantastic day…truly a day for us and our guests to remember. Many guests are calling our wedding the event of 2016! They were super impressed with the beautiful surroundings and of course the scrumptious dinner and BBQ the next day. I have to say that from the off nothing was a problem, and on the day my husband and I were treated like royalty. Thank you for the best day of our lives. If anyone is looking for a wedding venue then I cannot recommend Avon Ri highly enough. Absolutely fantastic…the only problem is that its all over! Deborah Morgans
Thank you all so much for an absolutely wonderful wedding day and BBQ on Sunday. We had an absolute ball and our guests were so impressed with the beautiful setting. I can’t thank Sinead enough for helping us have the best day of our lives xxx. Deborah & Rob, August 2016
I think everybody here would love us to continue our wedding celebrations up in the Avon Ri. Especially since Laura, mark and Isobel did such a good professional and personal job. Thanks for such a brilliant wedding guys and keep up the good work. Judith & Aran
My fiancé and myself stayed in the Avon Ri as part of a family wedding in May 2016. From the moment we got to the place we had a very warm and welcome feeling. All staff were lovely and were bending over backwards to ensure that the wedding was great fun and very family-friendly. The main building itself has some lovely views out over the valley and it was very calming and relaxing sitting out on the veranda enjoying a cold drink in the warm sun. The holiday chalets were very comfortable with everything you would need for a few lovely nights away. I would recommend the venue for a lovely short break and a great place to base yourself if travelling out into the Dublin/Wicklow Mountains. TripAdvisor, May 2016
Words cannot express how wonderful Avon Rí and their amazing staff are. My husband and I arrived to Avon Rí three days before our wedding to tell them that our venue had burned down and asked them if they could do the ceremony and reception, and boy did they do it! Nothing was too much to ask. Sinead and her team stepped up. With so little time, we told them that the theme or decor or seating arrangements didn’t matter as long as we could do it there, but Sinead and her team wouldn’t hear of it. They asked what our decor and theme and food was supposed to be in our original venue and did it all! We got our dream wedding. Got to get married outside by the lake in the sunshine, drinks reception in the decking overlooking the lake, beautifully decorated with lanterns, fairy lights, parasols, etc. And then into our reception room which had been transformed into everything we wanted and more. I am and forever will be so thankful to them and I can’t imagine how our day could have been any better!!!! Jenny & Shane, July 2016
