We just fell in love and knew it was the one.
We had the absolute pleasure of having our wedding at Ballyscullion park on 26/08/22, and what a day it was! We can’t even begin to put into words how amazing Rosalind, Cathy, Garry and all the team at ballyscullion are. From our very first visit (which was are first venue visited) we just fell in love and knew it was the one that we wouldn’t find anywhere else like this stunning venue. We felt so welcomed and at ease, the whole way through our planning Cathy and Rosalind were always at hand to answer any questions we had, nothing was ever any hassle to them! Our day could not have went anymore smoothly and this was all down to the staff on the day with their warm, welcoming attitudes, they made sure everyone was attended to. A massive thanks to Garry and Geraldine for looking after us all evening also, all our guests loved you both. As for the grounds they are just breathtaking, all of our guests are still talking about how stunning it was and how welcoming and friendly everyone of the staff were. We honestly can’t thank you all enough for your hard work and ensuring we had the best day. Ballyscullion park was definitely the best decision we could have made!

Simply the most incredible venue I've ever seen.
We got married here on Saturday. Simply the most incredible venue I've ever seen. I worked in weddings for years in dozens of venues and nothing compares. All the staff were so attentive and everything ran perfectly smoothly due to the staff and management. Thank you all so very much. I cannot recommend Ballyscullion enough!

Everyone kept saying how amazing the food was!
I want to say a massive thank you to everyone who helped make our wedding day the best day of our lives! Wow, we really did choose the best venue, the beautiful Ballyscullion Park (thankfully we got very lucky and got some sun). Though want to give a special mention to Cathy and Rosalind for helping us throughout the last year in organising and answering all our questions and helping with the planning! Garry the bar manager was a gentleman, a very down to earth man and ensured I was sorted with my favourite drinks throughout the day and greeted with champagne on arrival! Big thanks to Geraldine who run the night so well, looking after everyone and doing master of ceremonies! Thanks to all the servers and bar staff, especially Danielle who looked after the top table and ensured everything was great. I cant believe the big day is all done, I wish I could do it all over again and if I could, I would choose Ballyscullion Park everytime for my venue! My guests were stunned at how beautiful the place was, everyone kept saying how gorgeous the grounds were, how good the prices at the bar was and how amazing the food was (Arbutus Catering) truly outstanding day. Thank you to all who helped give us the best day
