A magical property to make your own and spread over 120 acres of private Kilkenny countryside, Mountain View is owned and managed by the O'Neill family, who have years of experience of hosting weddings, parties and restaurant-goers - they welcome you into their family, and you never leave!

At Mountain View - it's personal.

The Greenhouse is a stunning space to host weddings of up to 60 people. A stylish bar and restaurant, designed with impeccable taste and attention to detail, this is the place to party! It also has a separate, covered and heated outdoor terrace. The Grand Marquee, is truly grand, with floor to ceiling windows overlooking some of the best Irish countryside, and opening onto its own terrace, it is perfect for those bigger celebrations of up to 210 people. The Cowshed - Earthy. Boho. Honest. This space is undeniably unique and fun, and perfect for celebrations of up to 220 people.

If you wish to get married onsite we have two beautiful ceremony spaces. Our outdoor Pergola is nestled amongst the trees with stunning views. The Cowshed offers you a unique and fun space to host your ceremony with a gorgeous backdrop of the Irish countryside. It has been said that Mountain View is one of the most stylish wedding venues around and we think you'll agree! We have poured our hearts and souls into creating a beautiful place for your wedding.

Testimonial  “Our wedding day at Mountain View was something out of a fairy tale! We chose Mountain View because of the spectacular atmosphere, but what we got was so much more. The team, especially Sharon and Bee, made everything so easy. When the big day finally arrived, we were in absolute awe of the beauty of the whole place, the sunset over the hills after dinner, and the impeccable food, the informal and friendly service - our guests are still raving about it.

Honestly i knew from the moment we booked the venue how amazing the team were here . They couldnt so enough for us on the lead up to our big day . They were so helpful and nothing was an issue . I look forward to going back every chance we get . Not to mention how beautiful the venue is . It rained all evening on our day but the interior didnt disappoint the team made it so special for us . The food was the thing everyone commented on the most . Things that food dreams are made of . loved every single thing on our menu the guests still rave about it now . The chief made a special dairy free menu just for me because im lactose intolerant . It was insane loved every bite . Wish we could do it all again . Thank you so much to the whole team id highly reccomend mountain view for anyone looking for something different on their special day????

Originally from Ireland & UK but living in Australia we took a punt on Mountain View after speaking with Sharon and hearing the story of how Mountain View came into existence as a venue. Organising a wedding from the other side of the world is hard enough and when you added covid lockdowns it made it even more difficult but the Mountain View team really came to the fore to make sure that we knew everything we needed to know and felt comfortable that we'd have the perfect venue for our big day and that's exactly what it was.....perfect.

On the day the staff couldn't have been more amazing, sorting all the finer details, and just making everything run smoothly but what you come for is the view and the pictures just don't do it justice. Then when you put on top the atmosphere, the food (without doubt the best wedding food I've had), and the venues quirks it really was the perfect place for us.

I'd recommend viewing this venue to anyone getting married in Ireland as I believe it will blow anyone away!

We cannot recommend Mountain View enough, our guests were wowed with the Venue, Food and atmosphere. The attention on the day from the wedding co coordinator was so personal and relaxed and we were able to be ourselves and enjoy the day with our guests with no worries.

We were looking for something different for our Wedding and Mountain View was perfect for us and we didnt have to do anything apart from show up and enjoy our day , Well Done to the team involved

The venue is beautiful and we were able to get some breathtaking photos over looking Kilkenny. The food was absolutely outstanding and could not be faulted in the slightest. Miriam was brilliant and truly helped wherever she could to make the day memorable for us. The few let downs we had were, the children never got to feed the alpacas on the day and we were unable to use the golf cart (both had been prearranged) There was also confusion on the timings as the 2 people we had been in contact with in the lead up to the day were not present on the wedding day. We had to keep correcting the other lady present on the timings and this left us (and our photographer and videographer) feel a little rushed. The marquee is beautiful but did get quiet cold during the meal even with the heating on. We didn't stay on site so cannot comment on the glamping but having looked in them, they do look fabulous. Overall a fabulous venue that I can see being incredible if a few tweaks are made.

"All the staff at Mt View were so amazing to work with and made the day truly our best day
ever. All of our guests were full of compliments for the food, the marquee, the cow shed, the
staff and the overall atmosphere. I think you even managed to wrangle the sun out!
Both of our sisters and brother in laws asked to pass compliments on to Miriam for being so
helpful with their kids, it made all the difference to them. And Eilish was so good to us the
next day and the breakfast was so good the next day, thank you all so much!
The food was so gorgeous, all the guests were accommodated for. Thank you for going
above and beyond the next morning and even leaving pizza for us in the tinny hut! Guests
who glamped were comfortable and we were able to visit the market in the cow shed on
Mountain View was perfectly suited for us and I think we were relaxed and confident which
informed the whole day, people love the chill atmosphere you instill".

Every member of the Mt View staff were amazing to work with and made the day truly our best day ever. So many of our guests were full of compliments for the food, the marquee, the cow shed, the staff and the overall atmosphere. They were incredibly accommodating to children which made all the difference to parents. Mountain View was perfectly suited for us and I think we were relaxed and confident which informed the whole day, people love the chill atmosphere you instill.

We recently had our summer wedding at Mountain View and it couldn't have been any more of a
perfect experience from start to finish.
In the lead-up to the wedding, Sharon took all the stress away, she painted a beautiful picture in
our minds of how the day would go. We booked our wedding from overseas and only got the
opportunity to view the venue two weeks beforehand.
We had our ceremony and reception at Mountain View. The weather was fine so we got married
in the gardens - the outdoor arrangements for the ceremony were perfect, nestled amongst
mature trees and manicured gardens. Their service and attention to detail were flawless. Miriam
and James were our hosts and managers on the day. Both were experienced and attentive,
checking-in with us at key points throughout the day to ensure everything ran smoothly.
The food was outstanding, and everyone's meal was perfect in terms of taste and presentation.
The grounds are stunning and there are so many beautiful backdrops and quirky areas to
achieve amazing photographs
Bea also made us feel so welcome and very much like family. I am so grateful for all her
wonderful and reassuring advice, she really put is at ease. Wedding planning can be difficult but
I never once needed to worry about the venue. We had no complaints about the day at all, it
was such a wonderful experience, I just wish we could do it all again!

"Our wedding day at mountain view was something out of a fairy tale! We chose Mountain View
because of the spectacular atmosphere, but what we got was so much more. The staff and
organisers at Mountain View (Sharon, James, Bee, Miriam, and everyone else) made everything
so easy. Our wedding had to be postponed due to covid, and they made everything so easy for
us. When the big day finally arrived, we were in absolute awe of the beauty of the greenhouse
decorations, the sunset over the hills after dinner, and the impeccable food. We cannot count
how many guests are still raving about how incredible the wedding food was. We were also
delighted to be the first guests to stay in the honeymoon suite on site, and had a wonderful
evening sleeping under the stars!
Thank you Mountain View, and everyone who helped make our dream wedding come true.

Our wedding at Mountain View was everything we hoped for...and so much more. From my
initial call with Sharon to arrange a viewing of the venue I knew we had chosen the right place.
Sharon was so helpful, kind, and accommodating throughout the whole planning stages.
On the day itself, Bea, Miriam, James, and all the staff were incredible, making sure the whole
day went smoothly and we didn't have to worry about a thing. I can't thank them enough for
making the day so special.
All our guests raved about the food, the views, the beautiful ceremony set up...they all had a
fantastic time. And so did's a day we'll never forget. Thank you to all at Mountain View. -

I cannot say enough good things about Mountain View ! Me and my husband live in New York and planning a wedding in a different country can be a real challenge on top of throwing in a global pandemic ! Sharon helped us every step of the way and made planning so easy and stress free! They also helped us with getting in touch with vendors since we were overseas and everyone they suggested to us turned out amazing. All of our friends and family still talk about how much fun they had and how beautiful the venue was. the view was the perfect scenery of Ireland for all our New York friends. The foods was great and everyone still talks about the brownie for desert ! We loved how it was so exclusive so we could enjoy the day with our closest friends and family! Everyone was so helpful throughout the whole planning process and amazing the day of the wedding. If you are looking for a beautiful exclusive venue with great food and great staff look no further! I?m so thankful to everyone at Mountain View for helping make our long awaited day amazing !

Where do I begin......from the moment we visited mountain view we were in awe. It can only be summoned up as amazing. The first day we made contact with mountain view to enquire about weddings we were greeted with the most helpful lady, Sharon. As planning a wedding was all very new and a learning curve for us. Sharon helped in every way possible by answering all our queries, providing all the needed information and gave us so many options and ideas from the get go. It was the best decision we made to book our wedding at mountain view as the responsiveness from Sharon was second to none. She made everything so easy for us and no request was too much, very accommodating. Leading up to the wedding we met with Bee and James also and all we can say is they are so genuine and gifted in what they do. They made the day special for us in very way possible and the same goes for all the staff in mountain view. The day itself was absolutely fantastic from the decor, to the natural view, the attention to every single detail and the quality of the food and drink was truly superb. We and the guests had the best day up right through to the was the wedding we always dreamed of and more. So we can safely say we 100% recommend mountain view. What an amazing place with fantastic people and what an amazing day we had. Thanks to everyone at mountain view for everything. If we could give more than 5 stars we would!

We had our wedding at Mountain View on July 29th 2021. From the moment we set foot in Mountain View we knew we just had to have our wedding here.
Sharon guided us every step of the way in organising our wedding. She was always so amazing and friendly to deal with and worked so hard to make sure our wedding day was just how we wanted it to be.

A very special mention to Miriam, Bea and James who went above and beyond for us on our wedding day, we are so grateful to you.
To the entire team at Mountain View who looked after us so well on the day, we can't thank you all enough. You were all a pleasure to deal with.
We couldn't have been happier with the service.

From start to finish our wedding day was just perfect. We will always have the most wonderful memories of our wedding day at Mountain View.
The venue, atmosphere and the scenery are like no other. Our guests were just so impressed by the venue and the entire day.
We highly recommend Mountain View to couples getting married, it is a must-see venue.

We could not recommend Mountain View more highly! We had the most amazing day and that was all down to the O'Neill family. From our first interactions with Bea and Michael right through all the planning with Sharon the wedding planner, everyone could not have been more helpful. The venue itself is simply stunning, and Beas attention to detail resulted in the venue looking like a winter wonderland on the night, creating the most beautiful atmosphere. The food by Marie Rafferty was exquisite, we never had so many guests complimenting the food. On the wedding day itself Bea, Michael, and all the team were simply outstanding and could not have been more helpful. This stunning venue, with exquisite food combined with the warmth of the O'Neill family makes for the most unforgettable 5 star wedding experience.

We simply cannot say enough about Mountain View and the entire team. Our Wedding day was incredible, the food, the atmosphere, the views, all out of this world. It's a truly unique venue nestled away in the woods with breathtaking views of the countryside. The Wedding Room is stunning, just pure class and sophistication. 10/10 from us thank you to everybody Bee, Michael, Marie, Sophie and all the staff who made our special day so magical. We'll never forget it.

We wanted a location that could hold at least 240 people but had an emphasis on the outdoors. We found a lot of locations held the wedding in a ballroom without windows, but we specifically wanted a summer wedding where we could enjoy a view of the outdoors. We fell in love with the landscape and the marquee as soon as we saw it. The wedding team at Mountain View were excellent and helped us through every stage of the preparations for our big day. It is such a beautiful and perfect setting, and has a very personal service. The food is outstanding; we found our menu tasting very difficult as everything was delicious and so beautifully presented!
It was great as we could take our wedding photos on the golf course with spectacular views of the countryside and a beautiful backdrop of the lake. We really felt we got to spend so much time with our guests. The marquee is a perfect size for all guests to be comfortable. We had such a fantastic day in June and we treasure our memories from our wedding day!

Staff and management were excellent from the word go. We felt that our experience really mattered to them personally and no request was too big or too small to try to accommodate. We were looked after with care on the day and the venue looked amazing.
