Alan and I wanted to send a heartfelt thank you to you both along with the entire VPL team for an absolutely incredible wedding. We are back from our honeymoon and real life is hitting us like a ton of bricks LOL but still reminiscing on how beautiful it was and the amazing job the entire team did. Everything from our perspective went off without a hitch and our guests were truly SO impressed by the venue, the attention to detail, the service, the meal etc. We have had so many compliments of people very genuinely saying it is the best wedding they've ever attended in their life. I wish we could re-live it over because it was so gorgeous and like everyone always says it truly does go by in a flash. The garden ceremony stands out to me but everything really was just perfect for both the welcome party and wedding. I don't know how you guys pulled it all off, and so smoothly too! I apologize because I meant to say this all during my wedding speech as well but turns out writing it the morning of in a hurry while stressed means you'll forget things (I then proceeded to accidentally light it on fire at the dinner table LOL). So please accept this as both my apology and my sincere thank you. I will miss working with you guys and our calls! You were always so lovely to connect with and I am genuinely sad this whole process is over. I hope our paths cross again and we'd love any excuse to come back there. Until next time- thank you!!!!We love you all dearly, you feel like family and we hope one day to see you again We hope to be back again very soon.
Just a final message from us to thank you a million for an amazing day, it was a joy working with you all over the past year and we cannot recommend you highly enough. We felt like Royalty on the day and our guests could not have loved your venue more, they were blown away by all the lovely little touches like the candles at night. We love you all dearly, you feel like family and we hope one day to see you again We hope to be back again very soon.
Jamie and I just wanted to send through a short note of thanks to you all for everything you have done for us up to and on our wedding day last Friday. We are both delighted with how the day turned out. We can’t thank everyone at the Lodge enough and special thanks to you both as well as Emma, Gene and Ray who were fantastic. We hope to be back again very soon.
Virginia Park Lodge was the wedding venue of our dreams. The genuine attention to detail and sense of home-coming was what we hoped for when choosing our wedding venue. And VPL really delivered that feeling of warmth. Brainstorming sessions with Ciarán, Ciara, Edson and Deirdre were always invaluable. They really encouraged us with our ideas, and provided guidance and support to realise our vision for the big day! As self proclaimed foodies we must admit that the food was incredible. Being massive fans of Richard Corrigan we always knew that the food would be great, but even still it really blew us away! Chef Eoin and the team really went above and beyond. We loved our tours of the vegetable patch and poly-tunnels, and I really appreciate the lengths they went to ensure our guests with food requirements were well looked after. We cannot wait for our future visits to Virginia Park Lodge to celebrate anniversaries and many more important milestones.
V.P.L. isn't a hotel, it's a glorious home that envelopes you the moment you walk through the log filled, candle lit archway. It's bliss not to have tvs or kettles in bedrooms but sumptuous beds and beautiful linen. Ciaran, Deirdre and Katherine. You were just brilliant. So welcoming and unbelievably helpful. Nothing seemed to much trouble. Your staff clearly follow your lead. The food... ohhh the food. We have never had such a wedding feast (and I've been to plenty). Presentation, flavour and taste... To have Richard show us round the farm was an unexpected thrill. Everyone felt his deep passion for the place. Roaring fires, drawing rooms to meet friends in, we'll share these memories for lifetimes. Virginia Park Lodge was an experience and a gift to look back on. I REALLY didn't want to leave!
Thank you so much for helping make our wedding day so magical. We both felt so special and it is a memory we will have for the rest of our lives. There are so many aspects that go into the day. And as you know, food is one of the most important. Chef Eoin and the team produced such a delicious and elegant looking meal. Everyone we encountered around the lodge were so helpful and made our day effortless. April and Ciara were so charming. All of our guests had a wonderful time. We look forward to coming to Virginia Park Lodge for future food events.
To all at Virginia Lodge, Ciarán, Deirdre, and of course the staff over in Mayfair. Fionnuala and I would like to reach out and say a massive thank you to you all for the work you put into our wedding day. From the moment we saw the Lodge we fell in love with the place. The food (no words can describe how good it was) the service and the attention to detail was beyond anything we could have imagined! We know a huge amount of work goes in behind the scenes in preparation for the wedding and the whole team that are dedicated to making the Lodge a place like no other. We are truly grateful to each of you for making it an unforgettable day and last but not least Mr. Corrigan for creating and cooking a fabulous menu. Thank you again.
On behalf of myself and Darren we would like to thank yourself, Ciarán and all the team at VPL for an absolutely fantastic wedding day. Everything ran so smoothly and was very relaxed, just as we wished for. The food was outstanding, wish we could try it all over again! We really couldn’t have asked for a better venue, it was perfect. Please send our thanks to Richard, Chef Eoin, his kitchen team and all other staff working on the day. Thanks again for everything it was a wonderful experience. We will be keeping an eye out for any meal events in the coming months and will most definitely be back!
A big thank you to you, Hilary, David, Jean and everyone else at Virginia Park Lodge who assisted with our wedding. We loved your creative ideas for making sure that Ben's family could be part of the wedding from Australia, and that Ben as the groom felt heard in the planning process. You were incredibly kind and accommodating when we decided to postpone our wedding last year, and for that we will always be grateful. What you do at Virginia Park Lodge is very special; you have contributed to building very happy memories that we will have forever.
We wanted to thank you for the most wonderful weekend we could have ever asked for. It was simply perfect. I would have no hesitation recommending a 25 person wedding to any upcoming bride, the way you guys organized the space honestly made it feel like there was way more people there. I know every couple probably says there wedding was the best wedding but I really think ours was the best wedding ever, in the best venue in Ireland. Virginia Park Lodge is magical ❤ Thank you both again and we hope to be back very very soon.
It definitely wasn't easy to plan a wedding during Covid-19 & we understand it's equally as difficult from your side too. Nonetheless, we had a fantastic weekend and enjoyed every minute. Friends and family were blown away by the food, venue and service. You guys just go above and beyond - from helping us tie the bows on the bridesmaid dresses, to fixing my dress and even running outside with an umbrella when it starts raining. It all doesn't go unnoticed and really adds such a warm and personalised touch to the day. We all felt very welcomed & that nothing was too much to ask. No doubt we'll see you all again soon, at hopefully another wedding or a stay in the future. Until then, we wish you a safe, happy and (hopefully) sunny 2021. Have a great week!
Thank you virginia park lodge for an absolutely unforgettable and beautiful day! We wish we could do it all over again every single time we think about our wedding there! We can confidently say that you’d be hard pushed to find a better wedding venue in ireland, north or south…and we researched a lot of them! There’s nothing cookie cutter about the experience and what really sold it for us was the ability to have the venue all to ourselves the night before our wedding for an intimate bridal party dinner with family and friends…you’re just not able to do this in most other venues. From the moment we arrived everything ran so smoothly we didn’t have to worry about anything at all. The staff were super-efficient and lovely, and made all areas of our wedding exceptional. And of course the food! The food was absolutely phenomenal…our guests still talk about it! From the pre-wedding dinner to our sunday breakfast, every course tasted like heaven. We left virginia park lodge with the feeling of having a truly magical experience in a stunning lodge surrounded by beautifully manicured gardens. We knew it was going to be special but our expectations were well and truly exceeded!
Thank you so much for such an exceptional welcome, amazing hospitality & unbelievable food. From the first morning we met with Deirdre to view Virginia Park Lodge until we waved goodbye when we left at the end of our celebrations, we had such wonderful time working with you to plan out our special day. The team’s enthusiasm, good nature, dedication and hard work was so evident to us at all times. You helped make our wedding day so enjoyable, stress free & truly memorable. Everything was simply faultless & we are so grateful to you for this. Thank you for making us feel like Virginia Park Lodge was our home for the duration of our celebrations. Our Friends and Family have nothing but wonderful things to say and there is an overwhelming agreement by all that that the food was the “most amazing food they ever had at a wedding”. We have nothing but happy memories from our time in Virginia Park Lodge & will cherish these for years to come!
Gemma and I couldn't have been happier with our choice of wedding venue. As we live in the UK and were flying across to marry in Virginia we had to put great trust in the Virginia Park Lodge team. We were ecstatic when they delivered on every level. It wasn't just us that noticed their attention to detail, friendly and reassuringly relaxed staff but our guests repeatedly commented on the delightfully attentive and polite service. We originally short-listed Virginia Park Lodge because of the quality of food guaranteed by owner Richard Corrigan but having now had our wedding we would recommend this beautiful and unique venue due to the absolute complete experience we and our guests enjoyed from start to finish. Our special day won't just be remembered by us, it will be cherished by all our family and friends as a unique and unforgettable experience.
