Hi Alison,

Sorry for delay in e-mailing you, we have just got back from our holidays, just a quick thank you for making our day so special on the 4th July, the room was decorated so beautifully, the food was fabulous and the service was second to none, the attention we all got from yourself and Josh was exceptional, everybody who attended had nothing but praise and all the guests had a great day. We will send a thank you card to you in due course but just to touch base and thank you personally. We will definitely visit the Anglers Rest in the future and I will write a review on trip advisor today, again thanks so much from myself, Cathriona and the the two girls.

Kindest Regards,

Jason Daly

Where do we start? Thank you so much for creating the most magical day for us. It really was the best day of our lives. Noeleen, you were brilliant and so helpful from the first time we met you. The food was out of this world as always. Everytime we go there we are always greeted by the most friendly and helpful of staff and last Thursday and Friday was no different. Everything was perfect and it was down to you and your team! Thank you so so much again.

Such lovely write up and a beautiful couple check it out!

April 2017

My partner Iain and I got married at the Angler’s Rest on 13 April 2017 and we couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out! We were planning the wedding from Vancouver, Canada where we both live and had spent the first few months after our engagement in July looking online for wedding venues in Dublin. (Iain’s Northern Irish and I’m Canadian and we met in Dublin and wanted to get married there). After scouring websites, reading loads of venue reviews, and contacting over 25 different venues, we both decided (before having visited the venue) that Angler’s Rest was perhaps, the perfect fit for us: the ceremony room was beautiful and the reception room was stunning and they both seemed to be the perfect size for a wedding for about 70 people (I should mention though that the Angler’s Rest could also accommodate as much as 120 people if necessary). When we decided on the venue, we were in contact with Noeleen, the wedding coordinator at Angler’s Rest in September, and right from the start, she was a wonderful help: she was super responsive to all of our questions and queries and she was clear at communicating about anything she felt we ought to know about the venue. We visited Ireland two months before our wedding and met Noeleen (who was as lovely in person as she was by email) at the venue for a menu tasting. The food was amazing: fresh ingredients, carefully prepared, and cooked to perfection. Iain and I love to cook (and eat!) and we were not only impressed by the fact that our guests were given two different options to choose from for their starters and desserts and THREE different options for their mains, but that every single option was absolutely delicious! On the actual wedding day, Noeleen and the staff at Angler’s Rest had decorated the rooms beautifully and were great at making sure everything ran smoothly throughout the day and into the evening. We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better team of people—and we couldn’t have asked for a better place to get married! We received compliments from so many of our guests about the venue and some people even told us that the food at the wedding was the best food they’ve ever had at ANY wedding. It’s been just over a week since we got married and we both can’t stop thinking about how wonderful the day went, and we can’t thank Noeleen and the staff at the Angler’s Rest enough for helping us make our dream wedding happen. Thanks for everything guys!

Cindy and Jason Lawlor October 2016

We would just like to say a huge thank you to all the staff at The Angler’s Rest for hosting our amazing wedding reception. We were blessed with good weather, good company and thanks to you guys good food too! So many of our guests commented on how fabulous the upstairs function area, the location and the food was at our wedding. We honestly cannot thank you all enough for such a well organised, easy-going and relaxed wedding reception. I would highly recommend The Angler’s Rest for any occasion but most definitely for a wedding as everything was perfect for us on the day. Many thanks again, Cindy & Jason Lawlor.

‘We were married on August 15th 2016 and had our reception at Angler’s Rest. We were so impressed by the level of care we received from the very first meeting with the venue’s wedding coordinator Noeleen right up until the day itself. Noleen helped us to plan a very personal day for ourselves and our family. The food was exceptional and our guests from both home and abroad could not compliment the waitstaff and the bar staff enough. The venue was simply beautiful on the day, decorated with flowers which matched our theme. Many of our guests from both Ireland and overseas told us it was one of the best wedding celebrations they had ever attended. We would strongly recommend Angler’s Rest to couples who are looking for a warm, personal wedding reception venue and a stress-free wedding day!’

Shane and Lisa 9th July 2016

Thanks for everything, the wedding day went so smoothly, the staff in the anglers were extremely helpful. All the guests commented on how lovely the food was and service was very efficient. The venue looked amazing, the layout of the room & the cake was exactly how we had asked Noeleen. I would definitely recommend the anglers as a wedding venue to anyone.Thanks for everything

Review content: I had my wedding recently in The Anglers Rest and I honestly couldn’t have asked for anything more! The moment I saw the stunning venue I knew I had to have my wedding here. Leading up to the Wedding I was in constant contact with the venue and nothing was too much trouble. On arrival to my reception, everything was set up just the way I asked I didn’t have to worry about a thing on the day, My guests commented on how stunning the venue was and that the food was exceptional! All the staff from the waiters to the bar staff were extremely polite, helpful and friendly. I couldn’t recommend The Anglers Rest highly enough, From myself and my husband I would like to say Thank you to the Anglers Rest team for making my big day so wonderful.

Dear Noeleen

We apologise that it has taken so long to thank you for helping us organise our perfect wedding day on March 26th 2016! Below is a review that we would be happy for you to use on your website if you wish.

My husband and I had always wanted to stay close to home when getting married and we knew from the moment that we walked into the Anglers Rest that it was the perfect venue for us. From the beautiful décor to the spectacular scenery, it ticked every box. We cannot praise Noleen and the team enough for their attention to detail and amazing service. Noleen is passionate about her job and went to every length to ensure the day ran smoothly. The small details didn’t go unnoticed – from setting up our wedding cake table exactly how we wanted it, to the beautiful centrepieces that matched our flowers perfectly, we loved it all! So many people commented on how nice the food was, it was actually one of the things we looked forward to most after having our menu tasting! The quality of food is definitely higher than anything we have tasted at weddings we have been to in the past.The location, the room, the décor, the food, the service….everything was just perfect. Thank you to Noleen and all of the staff in the Anglers Rest for making our day so special and ensuring it is one we will never forget!

Gerry M 16th April 2016 “Wedding Reception”

What a wonderful venue this was for an intimate wedding reception. A superbly appointed self-contained function area. The staff were extremely efficient and friendly. The food was superb. The nicest wedding reception I have had the pleasure to attend! This is the perfect location for a small wedding or function, catering for up to 70 people. Highly recommended!

Ctannam April 2016 “Wedding at the Anglers Rest”

I’d like to thank Noeleen and all the staff at The Anglers Rest for their help with creating an incredible wedding day. The atmosphere, food and service were something special, we have absolutely no complaints! The ceremony and dining rooms upstairs are just perfect for a classy yet relaxed small wedding. We had roughly 70 people but they can hold up to 120. We enjoyed the layout of the rooms which kept guests close so the party didn’t get fragmented. Noeleen was extremely helpful in the preparations for the day, nothing was a problem! Ourselves and our guests had a fantastic day and I would recommend The Anglers Rest to couples looking for an intimate venue.

March 2016 “Dream Wedding”

Excellent food and beautiful setting for a small wedding. We will go back for a meal downstairs sometime soon.

Richard D 2nd April 2016 “Wonderful Wedding Venue”

We had an amazing wedding here. One of the many highlights was the amazing attention to even the smallest of details. The room was amazing, the food served was of the highest quality. A massive congrats to Noeleen and her team, they made our day extra special. I couldn’t recommend the place highly enough.

Dylan W 28th March 2016 “Amazing wedding venue “

We had the most amazing wedding in the Anglers Rest over St. Patrick’s Weekend…Noeleen and her staff ensured that every small detail was attended to. Many of our guests commented on the exceptional food. The venue was beautifully decorated, intimate and just perfect for the 100 guests to enjoy the special day. We cannot recommend the Anglers Rest highly enough. We will always be grateful to them for the very big part they played on what was an incredible day.

Karen M 4th April 2016 “Wonder Wedding Location”

A year on and I realised I never wrote this up! A massive thank you to all the team at The Anglers, for giving us such a magical day. We fell in love with The Anglers as a venue from our very first visit out there. We knew it was the perfect place for us to bring all our family and friends. There is such a lovely atmosphere and vibe out there and the Phoenix room is just perfect for creating an intimate setting which is what we wanted. We both loved the open plan room and the fact that you could have everyone near you! We had heard the food was delicious so were not disappointed when we preceded to drop out for dinner over the coming year. We got married on March 28th 2015 and honestly had THE best day. We could not be more grateful to Noeleen for all her help in the run-up to the actual day. As a bride/groom you have a lot of other stresses to deal with and she completely put us at ease and carried out all our requests without even a phone call! The room was stunning, exactly how we pictured it and all our friends commented on this and the venue itself. They loved the country house feel and the snug (Salmon room) where we had the drinks reception was just perfect for the gang over from the UK, it gave them a lovely taste of Ireland. The food was outstanding, again we have got lots of feedback and everyone said ‘best food they have tasted at a wedding’ which is always nice to hear. The service was also amazing on the day, you kept everyone fed and watered and happy and that was all we could ask for. We didn’t want the night to end, as am sure you all noticed. We did feel sorry for the barmen! But they too did a wonderful job. All our friends had a brilliant day/night and this was our goal. We would both highly recommend The Anglers Rest as the ultimate wedding venue. The only thing we are sad about is the fact that it is all over! We only wish we could do it again!!! See you all soon for our next big occasion! Karen and Matthew Keatley xx

Ruth D 7th October 2015

Having recently celebrated our wedding at Wright’s Anglers Rest we really could not recommend the place enough. Noeleen as a wedding coordinator was really fantastic and helpful and patient with us. The staff were really wonderful and even when we returned to next day to pick up our bits and pieces all the staff with whom we had bonded the night before were full of smiles and a warm welcome. We thought the food and service was excellent with our guests commenting on how quickly the service was. It was such a great setting, especially for our autumn wedding, the light hits the function room as the sun sets. We really hope to remain frequent visitors here as it’s so nice. Menu options were great, and the kids menu was spot on.

5th October 2015

Thank you so much for such an amazing wedding in the Angler’s on the 01/08/2015. It was more than we ever hoped it would be and everyone really enjoyed the day.

All the guests were raving about the venue and the food, which was sensational. All our relatives kept on mentioning how nice the atmosphere in the Anglers was and how special it made the whole day.

I thought that because we were organizing everything from Melbourne it would be so stressful but it wasn’t at all and that’s because of you Noeleen. You were so helpful with everything and just so lovely to work with. Every time I came to visit the venue I was made feel so welcome by all the staff. They were all so friendly and accommodating.

I would highly recommend the Angler’s as an intimate wedding venue to anyone.

Thank you so much once again and please pass on our thanks to all the staff which made the day run so smoothly. We cannot say thank you enough.

Noeleen you and all the staff at the Angler’s made our day one that we will never forget. I wish I could do it all over again.

Ciara and Seamus 1st August 2015

We had our wedding here in August 2015, and had a truly amazing experience. The venue itself is beautiful and full of character. It’s a real hidden gem, and head and shoulders above the usual hotel function room type venue.

The food was great and the staff were wonderful and helpful. Noeleen was extremely helpful and accommodating throughout, and Jionx and Arnaldo were also really helpful on the day and in the run-up.
We had an amazing experience, and our guests all raved about it. We thoroughly recommend it.

D. Lohan August 2015

We had our wedding in July this year and we cannot rate The Anglers Rest highly enough. From the first day going to see the venue we were made to feel so welcome. It is a place full of rustic charm, romance, turf fires, exposed beams and elegant lighting. The real standout was the food which was amazing! Just absolutely 5* All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and made our big day run smoothly. We would highly recommend this venue and look forward to our anniversary dinner!

The Sadliers July 2015
We felt we must sit down and write to you and express our gratitude for the fantastic day we had at the Angler’s on Saturday 1st. Everything was perfect! From the table settings, flowers, food, wine and Processo. You all did an amazing job. The staff were very attentive but not overbearing and consulted with me on everything. I was so grateful that you guys handled everything and I didn’t have to worry about the minute details…in fact we just showed up and everything was in place.

All of the guests commented on the food. “The best food we have ever had at a wedding” etc. They also commented on the decor and how “special” the place felt. The roaring fires added so much to the atmosphere and the shabby chic interior totally matched our own style as a couple, some of the guests figured that we orchestrated it that way! If only they knew!

We cannot say thank you enough, it was a great day (and night for us – we came back to the Anglers after putting our children safely to bed and the babysitter in place!).

Thank you so much once again and PLEASE pass on our thanks to all the staff which made the day run so smoothly.
Catherine & David Fisher March 2014

Just want to say a huge thank you for all your help with the wedding. We couldn’t have asked for a better day and your staff were excellent. Everyone kept talking about how good the food was and the exceptional service of the staff. Some people who live in Dublin hadn’t been before and will definitely be going back and the gang from England and beyond will be returning when they are next in Dublin!
