From the smallest detail to the largest impression we will endeavour to exceed your expectations wherever possible.
Don’t take our word for it – hear what some of our happy couples have to say:
When choosing your wedding venue you want your family and friends to be as excited about where you share your special day, when we announced it was The Lodge at Ashford, they were ecstatic. Your wedding day is the day you're marrying your best friend and we wanted to have an intimate civil ceremony and fabulous party to celebrate our love and commitment. As Stevie Wonder would say, The Lodge at Ashford signed, sealed, delivered...it was ours!!!
With lots of sparkle, candles, elegance and fun, our wedding day was perfect due to the care, effort and attention to detail provided by Mairead, Jonathan, Garey, Saskia and all the team at The Lodge. Mairead became like an adopted member of the newly formed Scott family, always available to listen, explore and improve any ideas we had. With the amazing kindness and friendliness exhibited by all the staff on the day, our guests were enchanted by the wonder of the Lodge and celebrations went on into the wee hours, happily accommodated by the bar staff.
There were so many magical moments provided, from the beautiful backdrop of Lisloghrey to the amazing service and fabulous setting we all initially fall in love with when choosing the Lodge. But for us the wellies were a special memory and talking point the following day for all the ladies at our wedding!! When the flip flops were all gone and the feet were sore, an amazing array of wellington boots advanced to the dance floor and provided the most hilarious photo opportunities of the night!! Although I expect that's not what they're meant for :)
The Lodge at Ashford NEVER lived up to our expectations....it exceeded any ideas of what we could imagine would happen on the day and we've promised ourselves that we will be celebrating our anniversary there as a yearly reminder to the most special day of our lives........so far.
Thanks for everything,
Geraldine and Andrew Scott
Our sincerest apologies for the delay in writing to you regarding our wedding in March. It may sound strange but it took us nearly two months to recover from the entire experience. It was an exciting yet emotional time and it was truly amazing. To say the staff of the Lodge were fantastic, professional and kind is an understatement. The help we received across the board was unsurpassed and it will never be forgotten. For the friendly attitudes of so many to help getting trouser tailored last minute ( Anna!), every minute of the weekend and the day itself was magical to say the least. We still tell people of how great the location, the organizing (Mairead) and the people were and are ( Gary and Robert). Though our fellow guests did not need any convincing and will definitely be returning to relive the whole experience.
You are all a credit to the hotel, to one another and to what the word hospitality truly means. We want you all to know that the weekend will forever be etched in our minds as so very special and we will make The Lodge a place to visit in time to come for many years, hopefully New Years 2014 if we get the chance!
This note cannot convey the hard work you all put in but please know it never went unnoticed.
Thank you all for making our wedding so special.
Andrew & Jennifer Rhatigan.
This is an email to say a very special thank you for all your fantastic help, kindness, advice, care, attention and everything you did in the run up to our wedding day as well as on the day itself. You were so helpful.
Mairead we had such an amazing day! I know it’s a bit of a cliché but we really did have the best day of our lives!! Everyone, as expected, had only great things to say about the staff, food, rooms and the location. What a location!
A big thank you too to Saskia who was so helpful. Hope her and bump are well. And Gary….such a lovely guy. He was so helpful and had such a lovely manner. Orla i’m sure would have loved to run off with him to Canada if it wasn’t for the husband !!
David and I have been dying to pop up to Cong for a walk or lunch since we’ve got back but things have been mental here with the build on the house starting and training season in full flight!
The parents are still on a high!! Mairead again, a big heartfelt thanks for everything.
David & Eileen
