There aren't words to do this venue justice. Fantastic staff, kind and friendly, amazing views that change with the day light and season and the most interesting decor with pockets of intrigue. Roisin and her team will so delightful, every guest was blown away by the venue, a discovery for most and we were mainly a Dublin crowd. I can't do justice how at ease, stressfree and fun our day was for all. If you want something different, flexible and adaptable to a wedding that is 100% you and bonus like 2 mins off the m50, pick this. We stayed with our wedding party the night before and I dont know when I will get my closet people together like that again so it's a memory we will have forever.

Orlagh house is a great spot to host a wedding. We were very lucky to stumble across the venue! The team of Roisin, Emma, Tatiana and Vytautas were so accommodating and helpful from start to finish. They are a professional and experienced team and they ensured the day ran smoothly. We really did not have to worry about a thing! The venue itself is so unique and the chance to organise and arrange your day the exact way you want is special. We could not recommend Orlagh House more.

My partner and I held our wedding in Orlagh house recently. Everything from start to to finish was magical. From the amazing venue with all it's beautiful quirky finishes, the sumptuous feast that Aaron the inhouse chef created for us and our guests to the spectacular view of Dublin by day or night. We were not disappointed. The whole house is so beautiful, each room is unique. The cloisters is a beautiful hall which worked fantastically for our ceremony on the day. We are so happy we chose here for our special day Roisin and the other staff were so thoughtful and couldn't do enough for us. We truly felt at home for the 2 days. We can't recommend it highly enough and will be back any opportunity we get.
