Our day was made special by the outstanding co ordinators at the Farnham. Nothing was too much on the day. They made sure everything went smoothly and always confirmed any possible changes with events throughout the day - speeches, first dance, photographs. I would highly recommend the Farnham Estate to anyone planning their wedding day. All our guests really enjoyed their food and agreed the service was great.

Farnham Estate were just amazing, everything from start to finish was excellent. All the staff were amazing and went above and beyond for us and our guest. We had many guest feedback to us just how nice and helpful all staff were over the whole weekend of our wedding. The food was amazing and everything was timed so well, meaning that we could start the night party on time. The wedding team were brilliant too, Shauna looked after us during the planning stages and helped us organize everything and then on the day and day after we had a great team of people that were so helpful and really made us feel special. We cannot thank all the staff at Farnham enough for making our day so special.

Farnham estate is the most fabulous wedding venue with the best team behind it all. From the moment we first inquired we knew that it was our wedding venue. All of the wedding team are so professional and helpful. They went out of their way to make sure we were happy with every detail. They were also so accommodating to our requests and we had the best day in September . The venue itself looked beautiful. The food and wine was Devine. Everyone is still complimenting the day. I highly recommend Farnham Estate and wish we could do the day all over again! Thanks you to everyone who helped make our day so special. Niamh and Colin

From the beginning Danielle was absolutely brilliant. She made the whole day go smoothly and put our minds at ease, nothing was a hassle and every little touch we wanted they were so helpful with - the day of the wedding went without a hitch and all of the restaurant staff were fantastic aswell (we got so many compliments on the food). Delighted with our choice of venue, our guests loved having the pool the next day to knock off the hangover and then the golf club was set up beautifully for the day 2 bbq.
Exactly what we needed for a stress free wedding!

Amazing day, great venue and location. The wedding reception area is separate from the main hotel- so there is ultimate privacy of wedding guests only. There is a bar in the reception area. Lovely and spacious we had enough room for a 4 piece Irish band whilst comfortable accommodating guests aswell. We loved the function room, it is not overwhelming- a lovely size, there is a bar present in the function room which was a massive plus for us. Overall great location, for guests to make a weekend of your day as the hotel has a lot to offer guests. Food was also amazing- everyone complimented this. Would definitely recommend this venue.

Farnham is the most stunning venue for a wedding. The wedding pavilion is separate to the main hotel which we loved as it had some privacy. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous with a mix of modern and vintage decor. I liked that they kept the estate house with its vintage feel but is surrounded by modern. The grounds for photos are outstanding our wedding photos are beautiful! The food was absolutely fantastic everyone was raving about it. The hotel rooms were huge, clean and relaxing, beds are extremely comfortable. The staff here are absolutely amazing, so friendly and helpful and went above and beyond for us we couldn?t have been happier with our wedding day here and would recommend it to absolutely anyone.

We got engaged in the Farnham Estate so always wanted to be married here! From the first day we viewed the hotel and met with Danielle we knew it would be perfect for our wedding. Nothing was too much to ask! Danielle and her team couldn't have done enough for us. Everything from planning, to communication, to service, menu and the beautiful hotel itself was absolutely amazing. We couldn't have asked for better! We would 100% recommend the Farnham Estate to anyone getting married and we cannot wait to return for a visit!

We had an absolutely amazing experience with the farnham estate from the minute we reached out to arrange a viewing. Ciara their coordinator is at the top of her game and her experience and personal touch shines through. On the day the manager was extremely helpful and so organised and efficient. There aren't enough words to describe how happy we were with our day all thanks to all the staff, the coordinator, receptionists, managers, waiters, chefs, cleaners and beyond are all an asset to the company.

We had our wedding on the 17th of August 2019 in Farnham Estate and we definitely had the best day of our lives. We organised our big day from oversea and the staff at Farnham were amazing from day one. Danielle was our wedding coordinator, she was extremely helpful and very responsive to our emails and any questions we had. Colm was looking after us on the big day. He made sure everything went to plan and ensured the day we very smoothly. The food was exceptional throughout the day and our guest were very happy. The ballroom and reception area were beautifully decorated. We couldn't recommend Farnham Estate highly enough. It was amazing and we wouldn't have changed a thing.

What can we say from the first email to the wedding day Farnham estate was amazing! Planing our wedding from the UK everyone made us feel like we were there and they replied to us quickly. The venue is absolutely perfect and I wouldn't change a thing! Food on the day was 100%, sat down on time, enough space between each course so we and our guests had time to enjoy each course. I could go on and on I just can not thank Tracey Stephen and the team enough x

We'd like to thank you and and everyone at Farnham for a wonderful day. All staff were more than helpful, a few names in particular spring to mind if you could pass on our thanks. Jonathan at the reception suite, Audrey who served our table and Ciaran at reception (in the hotel) helped us out with a number of things during our stay over the two days.
We're actually looking at booking a weekend in Farnham in the next few weeks we were so happy with our wedding there!

We recently got married (may 10, '14) in the Farnham. I have many good stories to show how good there service is, but then I'd be here all day writing this review ;)

Anyone thinking of a wedding, just to summarise our 3 day stay:

Day 1. Golf. No pressure, good fun. Bit wet, but that's the man upstairs fault. Forgiving fairways and fast greens. Sun was out and the buggies got us around quick. Gavin and the lads there were really super.

Day 2: the wedding. The place halted for to receive us. Everything went perfectly. Cooking 170 fillet steaks isn't easy, but these lads made it look easy. Jonathan the MC, was a STAR. He made the evening run like a locamotive. Such a great night. Matthew, the bar Manager had to put up with us all till 5am! What a legend.

Day 3. BBQ in the lemon room. 50 hungry heads were fed back to life by Tomek and his team. Just super. Yummy post partying ribs, burgers, salads, etc. Just yum. Tomek, you were right about that Malbec you recommended.

Thanks in particular to Patsy, the lady at the helm. She sold us a wonderful day, we paid. THEY delivered.

Well done.

Looking forward to our anniversary already...lol

Myself and Emma would just like to thank yourself and Clodagh for all you help and time. You were a pleasure to deal with from the start. On the day Jonathan and all the staff in the function area where brilliant and really looked after us and Lisa was great to deal with over the last few months. We received great feedback from our guests on the hotel, the grounds etc. and we can defiantly say we made the right choice in venue for our wedding. I?m sure we will be back many times!

We would like to thank all the staff at Farnham for making our wedding a truly special occasion. Both Patsy and Clodagh were very helpful every time we called on them throughout the planning process. Any questions we posed were answered promptly. We would also like to mention Jonathan who was extremely professional and helpful for the entire wedding day. A special thank you to Sonia at the front desk who was extremely helpful in organising a steamer for the wedding dress which was creased upon arrival. It helped to calm the nerves. All the staff at the hotel were very kind to us and really helped to make us feel special, from the reception desk to the wedding staff and the lunch staff the next day. The complimentary bottle of prosecco on the Saturday with our dinner was a lovely touch. In a word the whole experience was perfect. Thank you to all at Farnham.

We both couldn?t recommend the hotel for not only a wedding but for any event and break away. Everyone commented on the grounds, reception area and rooms. A lot of guests got free late checkout, some as late as 3pm which was excellent. They were also delighted that they could still use the spa even after check out and some took advantage of this.
For us it was brilliant to know that guests had a great day and enjoyed the facilities as well. The bridal suite was beautiful, i was so disappointed we didn't stay on another night but we had already made plans for the day after with friends. I couldn't fault Jonathan and the waiting staff before and during the reception. He couldn't be more helpful even before the wedding.
On the day he had bits and pieces set up on the tables and in the reception as requested and last minute set up the wedding cupcakes for us. Food and service was excellent and both Jonathan and the waiting staff checked in regularly with us to ensure everything was good for us.
Even the next morning the reception staff and bar service staff were so polite and friendly. I would highly recommend Farnham for a wedding, any event or stay. Thanks to everyone again involved in our day

Hi Patsy,

Myself and PJ just want to thank you, Jonathan, Dave and the Radisson Blu for an absolutely amazing wedding day. Massive compliments to you all and the hotel, everything was just perfect from the minute we booked the hotel until we walked out the doors Sunday the 8th Dec after the wedding. You made it very easy for us on the run up to the big day and nothing was a hassle.

Jonathan and David made it very easy for us on the day and Jonathan went out of his way to keep me calm and ensuring everything ran smoothly on the day. You all made us feel very special and we had the dream wedding, we really did, thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. Our guests have not stopped talking about the venue, from the Christmas decor, the meal, the location and the overall beauty of the hotel itself.

We will most certainly be recommending Farnham Estate Radisson Blu to everyone and we will hopefully be back with yourselves on as many anniversaries as possible

Dearbh?ile & David Callan
Just a wee note to say thank you and the staff especially David who looked after us so well on our big day. We truly enjoyed our wedding from start to finish. We first visited Farnham four years ago and we fell in love with the place and have come back several times since. We got engage a year later and looked at a few venues but we always found ourselves coming back to the ides of have our wedding there.
After meeting with Patsy we were sold. We have three young kids so the fact that our venue was separate from the main hotel gave us peace of mind that they had room to play and be safe without ruining the other guests stay. Our Big Day arrived and the staff couldn't do enough to make us feel special. The day went as relaxed and smoothly as we dreamed.
The food was beautiful and everything went well. Highly recommend the Farnham Estate as a wedding venue and all our guests would say the same. We have a fabulous day and will be back soon.

We just wanted to say a big thank you to you and all the staff at Farnham Estate. We had a fantastic 3 day wedding weekend and we have memories now we will never forget. Every one of our guests that attended the wedding had a great time and Farnham truly had the wow effect. We have had a lot of people saying it was a fantastic hotel and that they were really looked after. We never got a chance to thank all the staff who looked after us so if you could pass on our thanks we would appreciate it as they really deserve it.
Thanks again and we will be up soon to enjoy another weekend

Hi Patsy,

I really just wanted to thank you so much for all your help in making my Wedding Day so special. I have to say the quality of service you provided in the planning of the wedding was exceptional. I am so grateful to you for all the help and assistance you gave us.

We are both sincerely grateful to each and every member of staff in the hotel. We both had such an amazing day, it exceeded well beyond our expectations and we enjoyed every minute of it!

Our guests commented on the exceptional staff so I hope you can pass on the positive feedback! The drinks reception was a great success and a special thanks to David who coordinated the day to perfection. The food was fantastic and the accommodation was luxurious.

I have no hesitation in recommending the venue to all my friends/ family as I have to say the venue was outstanding and I am so grateful to everyone at the Farnham Estate for all their hard work in making my Wedding Day the perfect day

We held our reception at the Farnham estate in Nov 2011 and would so highly recommend to anybody looking around the Cavan area for hosting their own wedding. We were so well looked after from the first day we visited the hotel for initial enquiry, follow up visits and of course on the day itself. The girls we dealt with before the big day were so nice, friendly, professional, organised and ensured that everything was in place for hand over to the master of ceremony on the day.The setting itself is just beautiful ?both the actual hotel itself (a mixture of new and old) and the grounds around it. Our guests were well impressed with everything. And the bridal suite (we went for the old style bridal suite room) was gorgeous ?nearly as big as our own apartment!We had Thomas as our master of ceremony on the day and he did an excellent job. We had times agreed for calling people in for dinner sit-down. However we ourselves got a bit delayed with photographs etc, but Thomas did not at all make us feel pressurised in any way, but still ensured that things ran closely to the agreed schedule. Fairy light backdrop now come with the reception room (optional) ?so along with that, the nice centre pieces and all the lovely tea-lights that hotel had scattered around, the whole place just look so well (we did not bother with chair covers) and gave a nice warm and cozy feel for a cold winters evening.The food itself was excellent. We went for the winter romance package ?soup, turkey and ham and bailey?s cheese cake (hotel very accommodating also for non meat eaters/special dietary requirements) ?and everything was so tasty. So many of our guests were still raving about how good the food was the next day ?meat was just cooked to perfection. Service was excellent throughout meal and afterwards ?both for meals and drinks. And the staff of the hotel are all so friendly and obliging?from servers, to receptionists and chamber maids.The spa at the hotel looks amazing. We of course did not get a chance to use ?but hopefully we?ll get to use on a future return visit in the foreseeable future.
