Apologies for the delay in getting back to you; it's been an incredibly busy time since our wedding day. We had the most amazing day - the food was absolutely gorgeous, the manor was beautifully decorated and we loved the extra additions of vintage type décor around the Manor. The detail was just amazing and really made the Manor a unique, special place to have our wedding day. The surrounding gardens and scenery are stunning and they really made the setting for our photographs very special. The bedrooms are beautiful and we just loved the exclusivity of the venue and being able to add our own personal touches.
Both Kevin and I have to say that what stood out the most for us was the fantastic staff at the Manor. Niamh was absolutely amazing on our wedding day. She is such a friendly, lovely person but equally an absolute professional and she made sure everything was perfect for our day. We immediately warmed to Niamh from our first visit to the Manor and we knew our wedding was in good hands. Our guests all commented on what a fantastic person she is and the amazing service she provided. Her ability to make everything perfect and to run things so smoothly whilst maintaining a relaxed, happy composure is something to be admired and it meant we were so happy and relaxed on our wedding day. We also have to extend our thanks Matieu - what a fine young gentleman he is. Nothing was too much for him. He has impeccable manners, an utter professional with a great sense of fun. Our guests just loved him. He did such a fantastic job and we really enjoyed him there on the day. His service was amazing and he even got rid of a bothersome fly (that came in from an open window) with one hand grab in the air. It was a funny moment and I think he is a credit to your establishment.
All of your staff have been incredibly accommodating and friendly. We can't recommend Leixlip Manor highly enough; we're telling everyone to get married here. We hope that in the future we'll have the pleasure of attending as wedding guests and to see another couple enjoy an amazing day at Leixlip Manor. Thank you all so much for your efforts, for decorating the venue with our personal items, for organising food tastings, for accommodating our requirements and for understanding exactly the type of wedding reception/day we wanted. We will always look back on this day as an amazing special time and it was made all the more special by your beautiful venue, amazing staff and fabulous food. The champagne breakfast in bed the next morning just topped off our amazing experience.
Thank you all and we wish you the very best for the future

Dear Lesley, Niamh, Rachel & the entire team
From the moment we met Lesley and saw the venue, we knew that Leixlip Manor was the place for us.
Being solely a wedding venue meant that I had complete faith and confidence in the team and we could relax, we knew everything was in hand. Any requests we had were met with a very friendly and efficient reply. I never felt stressed once, thanks to such a professional team.
Thank you for making us feel special every time we met and especially on our wedding day. Lesley and Niamh added to our excitement with their big welcoming smiles.
It was one of the hottest days of the year and you were well prepared with fans cooling us down during dinner and we had an entirely outdoor wedding afterwards. We never expected that! It was fantastic to have benches and gazebos dotted around the patio for all the guests to enjoy the Irish summer.
I especially loved all the little things that Niamh was on top of throughout the day that never crossed my mind. I had abandoned my shoes randomly and Niamh brought them to our room for safe keeping. The team also collected our homemade table names and favours, flowers and the leftover cake wrapped up the next morning to bring with us. They thought of everything!
The food was delicious, the service by all staff was impeccable, the feedback from our guests has been very complimentary. They all had a great time!
Thank you all for making our day so beautiful and relaxed. Leixlip Manor is a very special place.

Hi Lesley & The Wedding Team,
It has been over two weeks since we celebrated our Big Day at your Venue. We have such wonderful memories of our Big Day thanks to you all.
Lesley, you have been a brilliant wedding coordinator, I felt I could come to you with anything at all before the wedding and on the day. The Wedding Team and the Manor Staff are very professional. Our day went smoothly and we couldn’t have asked for more. Even the weather was fantastic (do you have anything to do with that J).
Many thanks again for all your hard work. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Manor to anyone!!!
It is so great to be married!! Love every minute of it J

We had such at great wedding and everything went so smoothly thanks to talk of you guys! We've had so many compliments on our choice of venue and everyone was raving about the food. Apparently the gravy was amazing (I had the salmon) and one of my friends asked for an entire gravy boat for herself! (She's pregnant!)
I honestly can't think of anything that struck me as needing improvement. Actually I wouldn't really change anything about the day, apart from the weather which even you couldn't change!
Thank you all so much for all your hard work and for making our wedding so fabulous! We would definitely recommend Leixlip Manor to anyone planning their wedding.

Dear Christian, Lesley, Niamh and Rachel & all at Leixlip Manor. Many, many thanks for everything over the past few months.

Lesley and the Ladies of the Manor!
It has got to the stage where I am actually embarrassed at how long it has taken me to put pen to paper to thank you, but I suppose better late than never! It’s amazing how quickly life gets back to normal and after the short honeymoon I was inundated with work until the end of the year!
First of all Happy New Year to you all and a prosperous 2013 for you, your families and your business.
I really don’t know where to start with how wonderful a day I had on 30th October last. I was very determined to enjoy myself having done all the preparations in advance and enjoy myself I most certainly did. It was the happiest day ever. You played a big part in making it so perfect – I loved the venue, the decor, the food, the service, the welcome and all the work leading up to the day. Nothing was ever a problem for you and it was such a pleasure to deal with you amazing ladies – Lesley, Niamh, Rachel and Michelle – thank you from the bottom of my heart! Thank you for being so kind to my sister and my Mum who felt really well cared for. I have had huge positive feedback from guests on every aspect of the day and that is a credit to you and your hard work. I think the first photo attached says it all. This was when I was greeting you Lesley. I am also attaching a couple of nice shots taken in the grounds which I think worked really well in your beautiful gardens.
Tadhg and I had a magic day – I can’t say enough thanks. I am sure our paths will cross again.
Warm wishes to you all from both of us.

I hope you and all the staff in Leixlip Manor are keeping well. I'm sorry for my delay in sending you our heartfelt thank you from myself and Des. We got married with you on the 21st Septmeber 2012, and we both had a fantastic day, the gardens and the Manor looked amazing in the September sunshine, and all our guest enjoyed sitting on the rear patio enjoying the sun and hospitality. The gardens are wonderful and our photos look amazing that were taken there. From the moment I listed visited lexilip Manor the first time I knew I wanted to get married there,its uniqueness and quaint decor and vintage feel not to mention the beautiful welcoming drive up to the manor sold us your venue. The professionalism of yourself and all members of the wedding team were outstanding and during the preparations you were all beyond helpful, no request was a problem and every email replied to. Please pass on our thanks to all members of the team. Our guests are all still talking about your beautiful venue, for the day I felt like a lady of the Manor. The food was amazing and most certainly the best 'wedding dinner' we have ever had and that's not me being bias, everyone of our guests complimented the food, I know we found it hard to pick our menu from all the delicious choices. Please also pass my thanks to the chef.
Thank you all again for a wonderful day, one we will never forget, made special by a very special venue.

Dear Leixlip Manor,
Many months ago Úna and myself got married at your wonderful venue. This weekend, we caught up with some friends who attended the wedding but never received our thank you cards. We posted one to you all at or around the same time and hope it made it safely. Please do let us know if not, we're contacting a few people to confirm this. Our apologies in advance if not, but please believe we never had forgotten you on our "thank you" list!
We wanted to make sure you had a record and wish to re-write some of our experiences from a wonderful day back on 19th July 2012.
From the initial introductory meeting at Leixlip Manor (in the rain!) to the wedding day, our experience with the entire staff, location and venue was amazing. Between the absolute professionalism and calmness of Christian to the enthusiastic, bubbly and ever-so-helpful Niamh, we consider ourselves the luckiest wedding couple to have had Leixlip Manor involved from the beginning. We chose this venue for many reasons - stunning location, tradition and experience, amazing food, atmosphere and elegance of the interior design but it was the staff that continued to exceed all expectations at every stage of the wedding planning and day itself.
The setting was so stylish but in the most wonderfully understated way, making all the guests so relaxed and welcome. We choice the BBQ (festival package) and all our guests loved it, as did we – people are still asking us about it now! Slightly more informal but without compromising high quality dining, Leixlip Manor got it spot on. The atmosphere was just ideal, from before the on-site civil ceremony until the evening finally wrapped up. The staff worked diligently at all times, with a smile on their faces, constantly attentive to all guests, making everyone feel so special.
So for this and so much more, Úna and I say thank you to all the staff at Leixlip Manor for making our dream wedding come true! No stress, never any panic, or no request an issue – you planned the day with us and often in advance of us to ensure that nothing was overlooked.
Our kindest regards, James & Úna

Thanks so very much for a fabulous day.
From the moment we met you last January we knew we'd found not only a fabulous venue but also a totally professional team that we trusted would be able to deliver on our big day. And boy did you deliver, way beyond our dreams. Our plan was always to have a 'small' day part to the wedding, which became 95 guests in the end. And to have a big evening BBQ and pig on a spit for circa 80 additional evening guests. From the start we were advised to hire a patio pavillion with heaters so that guests could sit outside regardless of the weather. We did this and it worked very well. Not only was it pretty but it provided welcome outdoor space for guests to sit or just take a breather from the dancing. Furthermore, as it was a beautiful evening the BBQ and pig on a spit was served outside. There was no shortage of space and our guests mingled and moved around freely all evening.
The food for both the meal and evening BBQ was superb, everyone said so. Our guests felt well cared for, nothing was too much for any member of staff on duty that night. We were looked after very well too, from the very warm welcome that greeted us at the door when we arrived, to the way you gently kept us moving so that there were no long gaps, dinner was served on time and our evening guests didn't have to wait ages for the meal to finish. From our point of view the whole day went smoothly, calmly and efficiently. It was extremely well managed and choreographed. The transition from sit down meal to evening entertainment was seamless. I was particularly impressed by the evening lighting that added to the ambience and the little extra touches that we weren't expecting like the fresh sandwiches that were served around 3am.
You have an excellent team and a fabulous venue that's managed exquisitely. I have no hesitation in recommending you to my family, friends and colleagues.
Thanks and kind regards,
Sinéad & Fran Donegan.
