We had my sisters wedding reception in Horetown House on Saturday 16th July 2016. We arrived on Friday 15th and the two immediate families and bridal party settled in and had a delicious 3 course meal in the dining/breakfast room. From the moment we arrived (driving on the newly sanded driveway viewing the freshly cut grass) we were warmly greeted...

I recently attended a wedding at Horetown house. I live in Wexford so I had heard a few negative things about the place but I said I would keep an open mind. The first feeling that I got when I came into the reception area was that it was uncared for. It was cold and a bit grim. The cellar...

Hi Purple Peg, I am very sorry that you had such a negative experience. Could I ask you to please contact me to discuss this incident as I dealt with most couples who came to the house last week and I would hate to think I had upset or offended anyone. We invite couples to come and meet us and...

I was fortunate to be a guest at a wedding here. The staff were very friendly, the banquet room has a real wow factor and the food was really excellent. The canapés were the best I've ever had and the lemonade is delicious. The cellar bar was lovely and cosy for late night drinks with a roaring fire. Although the...

Our wedding day at Horetown House doesn't leave me with happy tears. Quite the opposite! I can't even listen our first song. Our day was ruined by terrible food, cold surroundings, rudeness and a lack of organisation by so called "wedding coordinators" and their staff. To top it off the electricity went; regardless of this my husband and I were...

Wedding venues sell the "perfect day" but our wedding was far from perfect. Regardless of the electricity going our wedding day was ruined by Horetown House. Communication broke down as soon as the money reached their account. Emails were ignored, questions left unanswered. On the day itself the staff were so rude especially to my mother, my wife and my...

I recently attended a wedding in Horetown house. From the outset it looks like an amazing beautiful venue but the service we got takes all this away. We were staying 5 min away from the house so I popped back after the church to grab something. I arrived up to no canepees left which wasn't a big deal to start...
