Poulaphouca was recommended to us by our wedding planner when our wedding in Spain was put into question during covid. Without hesitation we booked without visiting (due to covid) having seen the beautiful photos, we were so happy and we were even more blown away when we eventually got to visit the house and barn, the bedrooms are beautifully designed and the décor and the views from the barn are breath-taking. From the outset the communication with Evanne was fantastic, really putting us at ease, having to plan a second wedding. The service during our tasting and on the day was second to none, absolutely everyone commented on the coordination and the attentiveness of the staff, their professional but extremely friendly approach made the day exactly what we wanted. A special shout-out to the staff who made sure we got to taste all the canapés and always had a drink in hand! We knew from recommendation that the food would be outstanding, but from our tasting we were absolutely blown away with the quality, presentation, and taste, and this was the exact reaction our guests had on the day. The food at our wedding was an extremely important element for us, absolutely everything delivered by the team was outstanding and exceeded our expectations, the feather blade beef was the talk of the night, and we still have guests commenting on the breakfast. We would highly recommend Poulaphouca to anyone for any wedding or event, we are already thinking about when we can go back! All of our guests were fantastic and we have already heard of our guests recommending to friends, and one friend of a friend having booked, we are jealous of anyone getting to go back for a wedding! We couldn’t have wished for a better day; the outstanding team went above and beyond.

From the minute we saw poulaphuca House and Falls, we knew this was were we wanted to get married. From the beginning the communication was great and the atmosphere they have created on site is second to none. When we saw the barn it literally took our breath away. The view is incredible and the space is so beautifully decorated on the inside. From reception up by the bar to dancing, our guests were well looked after all night and had the time of their lives! Everyone said it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding and the wine was delicious. All the staff are incredibly kind and warm and kept everyone’s glasses topped up throughout the dinner. All dietary requirements were also taken care of. We also had our day two at the venue and we were so happy we did. The food the next day was outstanding and the bar is a lovely setting as it spills out to an outdoor space. The accommodation on site was so comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Overall the staff could not do enough for us and with covid restrictions in place, we felt they really went above and beyond. People have said that it was one of the best weddings they have attended. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this venue. The opposite to your typical hotel wedding! Thank you Poulaphuca house and Falls.

Poulaphouca was our choice from the moment we had dinner there in feb 2020. We loved the feel of the place,the food service,atmosphere and we were so happy to book it as our wedding venue.From day one Evanne was so helpful professional and totally put us at ease as we hit many COVID hurdles. We were constantly communicated with,always had answers quickly which I think is so important so thankfully it was not stressful to plan.poulaphouca liaised with all the suppliers so The Barn was absolutely stunning and looked perfect when we arrived for our meal.Our drinks reception was just outside the main house ,canapés were served which were presented so well and were delicious.Our meal and set up in the barn was stunning with many commenting on the room and views as it is unlike any other venue and ideal for photos.We moved up to the bar after the meal for music and it was the perfect finish to a perfect day.We all stayed in the house,rooms are fab,spacious and great for pictures also.All guests were impressed and especially with the breakfast the next morning. Everyone at Poulaphouca made our day so special and a day we will never forget.The perfect wedding venue.

We were absolutely delighted with the experience we had with Poulaphouca House and Falls, from the time we booked the venue last August through to the weekend we got married (31/7/21). The spaces in the venue were incredible, and this is what initially drew us in. There were so many spaces to choose from, and we had the ceremony outside under the canopy, dinner in the renovated barn and the reception that followed in the house! There were also beautiful places to choose from for photos, and we got family photos in the gorgeous gardens and then photos of the two of us at the waterfalls. Though the venue is amazing in itself, it is the people working at Poulaphouca House and Falls that make it shine. We had so many comments from our guests on how friendly and professional everyone was, and it was also clear they were really knowledgeable about the food and wine. Even with all the uncertainty in relation to weddings over the last year, we always felt confident in our choice of venue as Evanne was always there to answer any questions we had. She, along with Iain, Dan and all of the others at Poulaphouca House, made sure everything ran very smoothly on the day. We had a few last-minute requests and changes and everything was met with a smile – we really felt that we were among friends. The atmosphere that everyone at Poulaphouca House created was really special, and added a bit of magic to our day! The food was out of this world. Everything - from the granola parfaits and cooked breakfasts, to the melt-in-your-mouth featherblade beef and delicious sticky toffee pudding – was exceptional. All of the food was so fresh and beautifully put together, and the menus we could choose from were creative and unique. We loved every single meal we had over the weekend. We had very high expectations of the food, service and accommodation for our wedding and these expectations were exceeded on every occasion – we could not recommend Poulaphouca House and Falls enough as a wedding venue! We have the fondest of memories of our wedding weekend and we already look forward to going back to Poulaphouca House for dinner in the coming months!

We booked our wedding in Poulaphouca House 10 weeks before our wedding day. The house had so much to offer with so many different spaces to use on the day. We rented the house out the night before the wedding which included a private dinner. The service was outstanding. Our family and friends are still talking about how amazing and attentive the staff were. We were treated like royalty. Our wedding ceremony was held in Russborough house, only 5minutes away from Poulaphouca House. It is a breathtaking ceremony venue. We had our reception drinks with live music outdoors in the garden area of Poulaphouca House. The pavilion was decorated beautifully for dinner. Everyone loved it as it was completely different to your standard hotel wedding but still provided the quality service. The food was up there with some of the best we have tasted in Ireland. We used the ballroom for drinks and music after dinner. The fairy lights created a gorgeous atmosphere for the evening. Evanne the wedding co ordinator was beyond helpful and attentive throughout. Our guests even commented on her fantastic organisational skills. Overall the variety of top quality spaces, amazing staff and delicious food provided us with a wedding experience that will be treasured forever.

We changed our venue to Poulaphouca at very short notice due to a Covid related cancellation at our original venue. From our first experience Evanne and all the team were really welcoming and helpful. They were really flexible and responsive to any queries and no request was a problem. On the day service and food was excellent. Its a lovely relaxed setting, with a great variety of indoor and outdoor spaces and we were delighted how it all turned out. Would certainly recommend

Thanks to everyone at Poulaphouca House and Falls. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and they had the venue looking great and very welcoming to us and all of our guests. We ended up changing our venue to Poulaphouca House and Falls with a few weeks notice given to them and a big credit is due to them for catering to us. A big part of our reason for changing to Poulaphouca was that they could have all the functions outdoors and with Covid-19 going on at the moment that was a big plus factor for us and our guests. We had just under the 50 guests attending and only got excellent reviews back from them in relation to the food and the great time had by all. We would highly recommend Poulaphouca House and Falls to anyone considering them. A special thanks to Evanne, Daniel and Gillian.

Our wedding at Poulaphouca House and Falls was everything we dreamed of. The help and guidance we were given from the organising team was excellent, all their suggestions worked out perfectly. We had the most amazing meal in the garden, covered in a beautiful stretch tent. The food was first class, the band were superb, service excellent and the organisation of a coach to bring our guests home was perfect to keep the party going late into the night without any worry. We stayed the night in the luxurious House and a gorgeous breakfast in the morning. Hayley and I really had our dream wedding, it ran absolutely seamlessly. A huge thank you to all the members of the Poulaphouca Team, their hard work, enthusiasm and diligence it was astounding. Well done to Dan and Claire, best of luck.

My daughters wedding was a truly fabulous success in an amazing romantic tent nestled in the garden with the sun streaming in. From a drinks reception to begin with the canopes were incredible including pretty afternoon tea cake stands loaded with delicate treats. The staff were friendly helpful and encouraging. The dinner was served in the stretch tent to a back drop of fliowers and blossom trees lending a fairy tale quality to the ambience. Dinner was totally fabulous. Service smooth and all the guests had a great time. The band were full of fun and the DJ later kept us all dancing happily to the early hours. Rustic pizza was enjoyed by everyone later in the evening. We all stayed over and woke to a prettily decorated breakfast room where the wedding flowed had been set up to keep the ambience going. The breakfast was first class and we all enjoyed the apres wedding chats. Our experience with having a wedding in Poulaphouca house was an immense success. Well done to daniel Clair and all the team.
