We had a wonderful experience organising our wedding at Slieve Aughty.  We knew from the moment we went there that it was the perfect venue, and Tracie, Merel, Miguel, Esther, and everyone there went the extra mile to make our celebration incredibly unique and special.  From the beautiful accommodation, to the tortilla cooked specially for our Spanish guests, to the delicious wood-stove baked pizzas the following day, the Slieve Aughty team created a relaxed, fun-filled atmosphere for us, our family and our friends.  We had a beautiful and memorable ceremony, a fantastic dinner and party, and a lovely after-party the next day.
Thank you! Gracias!

Dear Tracie, Esther, Merel and the team,

Thank you all for creating the most wonderful space for our special day!  We couldn’t be happier with Tracie’s help, the calm organisation on our special day, your attention to detail, the amazing food which still waters our mouths when we think of it and for making all of our special wishes possible.  All of our guests were amazed by the beauty of the place and many said it was the most wonderful wedding they have ever been to.  We truly had the most relaxed, fun and romantic wedding weekend!  Thank you for making it possible.

To all of the staff at the Three Towers,

Thank you so much for all of your help to make this day and weekend so special.  Everyone went above and beyond to make this the perfect day for us.  I remember coming to see this place, walking into the dining room and being overwhelmed with emotion.  I knew it was the place for us and it was the first and only place we looked at because we knew we wouldn’t find anywhere that could come close to it.  Thank you so much to all the staff, Olive, Catherine and Fiona who kept us all fed and watered in the mornings and were so friendly.  Dylan and Bryan for putting up with the rowdiness all night and keeping my fires lit.  Javi and Noel for setting everything up for us, Jenny and the girls in reception and of course Merel for her amazing food and hospitality.  Tracie you worked so hard for us and I can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us.  You made our day our dream.  And of course all of the staff behind the scenes, the kitchen staff and chefs, everyone who helped set up.  Hope I remember everyone!  The children’s entertainment – amazing!  Will definitely be sending people your way.

Hi Tracie,

Just wanted to thank you all again for the outstanding support you gave during the planning of our wedding. I really had a particular vision and was so thankful that you allowed us to do so much to your stunning venue. It’s been a month since we married and I’m still sad that it’s all over. Everyone has raved about the venue and food. It truly was a glorious day, everything ran to perfection and it will always be one of the best days of our life.
Many thanks again and we’ll see you next year for our one night stay around our anniversary. But I’m hoping to visit for food before then!
Thanks again to you and all your team (especially Merel – the standout food for me was the fish, chicken Gordon’s, mini pizzas and that wedding cake was divine. The vegans adored the Wellington- actually trying to find a recipe to make it themselves!).
Best wishes always,
E and A

Dear Tracie,

Both Pat and myself wanted to say a ginormous ‘Thank you’ to you and everyone at Slieve Aughty who made the day a truly special and wonderful day for us: it could not have been any better and every person *loved* everything about Slieve Aughty: the set up, the location, the food, the people, the accommodation. I know that a good few of our guests will be back for their own holiday or horse-back riding!

It truly was the perfect weekend: beginning with setting us and our families up in the beautiful rooms (I loved all the amazing themes and small details so much (and the bathtub in the Bridal Suite is awesome!) and cottages, having the most beautiful pizzas al fresco, accommodating the ceremony outside with fairytale-like decorations, the great reception (everybody loved the pancakes), the absolutely mouthwatering dinner (and everybody also commented on how super-quick and efficient Olive and the ladies were!), providing or organising lifts for the guests who were staying in the B&B and basically letting us having “the run of the place” until the small hours in the morning. The breakfast on Sunday was then so relaxed and again thanks for letting some of our “outside” guests partake in it. It was also a great help that we did not have to move out of the Bridal Suite until the afternoon, so we had plenty of time to say good-bye to everyone and get ourselves organised.

Thank you so much, Tracie, for getting all of that together for us and for answering all our questions, checking back with us on reservations, table plans and all the little details that made everything so special (loved the table decorations!). Please pass on our heartfelt thanks to Esther, Olive, Meryl, Miguel and all the staff behind and on the scenes that worked so hard to give us an unforgettable weekend (I never got the name of the young gentleman behind the bar who stayed till the very end and who gave lifts to loads of people – he was our late night hero!).

We wish you all the best and hope that you have a great summer (especially with your horses!) and we will definitely be back, not only for our anniversary;).  Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you out, e.g. leave a review etc.

Thanks so much again for everything. We had an absolutely brilliant time!
M and P
