“We had our ceremony and reception at the Dunadry Hotel and Gardens on Friday 20th August 2021. From the minute we viewed the hotel we knew this was our venue, the hotel offers everything and we immediately fell in love with the beautiful ceremony room, fabulous gardens, courtyard and large ballroom. The bedrooms are beautifully finished and larger than most hotels. The food was delicious and there are no shortage of bars. Kirsty and Amanda made it effortless to help us fine tune every detail before the wedding. And Malachy ensured the very smooth running of our big day, he kept us calm and kept the order of events running seamlessly throughout the day. We had the most special wedding day here, made possible by all the amazing and very attentive staff. This was seconded by all of our guests who couldn’t commend the venue highly enough. Thanks again, Judith and Lisa 💕”

“Michael and I couldn’t have been happier with how our intimate wedding ceremony took place in the secret garden of The Dunadry. No other venue could compare to. The effort that has been put into achieving this is amazing and so unique. It was such an easy and stress free experience. Made all the better with the help from the wedding manager Kirsty who during the pandemic had went above and beyond and always on hand for any queries we had. Special thanks to Malachy and Jo who made the day run so seamlessly. We really can’t wait to be back again next year for our renewal ceremony and reception. Also thank you to the amazing peacocks who gave us a great show and serenaded us. Thanks again from the new Mr and Mrs Adams”

This year has been crazy, never mind trying to have and/or plan a wedding. We were initially meant to be married in July 2020, then we postponed to April 2021. The more we thought about it, we just didn’t want to wait and decided in November to go ahead and get married in December 2020. From all these date moves, changes of number etc, the Dunadry and their team were with us every step of the way. Kirsty was great on emails and offering advice and Malachy was just great on the day itself. Even when they had no answers to give due to changes in regulations, they were checking in and updating us on what they could. We ended up having a magical day on Saturday 19th December and it was all we wanted and more, despite covid. We had a more intimate wedding than originally planned but it was simply amazing. We booked the hotel for our original wedding of 150 guests and it was suitable for both that, and the more intimate wedding that we decided to have in the end. One of the things that made all the changes to our wedding so easy, was our choice in the Dunadry itself. They had multiple rooms available to suit any amount of number of guests. The hotel and staff catered to our every need, form creating a complete menu just to suit us and essentially allowing us to create our own package. We opted for mulled wine on arrival due to time of the year, but they had endless lists of exciting cocktails and other options and it was so hard to choose just one. We had some guests with special diets and the staff made sure to check in regularly that everything was ok for them and offering suitable alternatives to our choices. One of these guests specifically commented on how attentive the staff had been throughout the day and how impressed they were. The room was set up beautifully and all our instructions followed to the letter with every attention to detail given. We used some of their in-house lighting/decor and it just topped off the look of everything. All we have heard from our guests since the big day was that the staff were so attentive, and the food was beautiful! Great menu choices and what we did select in the end was delicious. The portions were a good size and none of our guests went hungry in the slightest. Most of the guests stayed overnight and commented on the decor of the rooms, they are all finished to such a high standard. The stay was finished off with a cooked breakfast which was cooked to perfection. Not to mention the gardens, we chose not to go anywhere else for our photos and we are delighted that we did. The Secret Garden is a great addition to the already beautiful grounds, and I can’t wait to see all of our photos that were featured there. It is such a great aspect of the hotel for your wedding. If I could give any other couples some great advice, choose the Dunadry for your wedding…it will be the easiest and best decision that you make.

We recently had our wedding reception at the Dunady hotel. They gave us our perfect wedding day. The hotel staff went over and above the call of duty and couldn’t have done more for us. Leading up to the big day the organisation from the wedding manager Kirsty was incredible, we were always informed of what was taking place and there was not one request that was too much trouble. All our guests commented about how the day ran like clockwork and how the food was perfect. The selection of food was unbeatable and the presentation of every plate was exquisite. We constantly talk about how we didn’t feel any pressure, the staff dealt with everything and how ourselves and guest were the hotels priority. We couldn’t recommend this hotel highly enough. Professional staff, perfectly timed organisation and great food. Couldn’t have asked for me. We cannot thank you all enough for giving us our perfect wedding. Shelby & Jonathan 18/12/20

Our daughter’s wedding was on 10th September and we would like to thank the whole team for a brilliant day. Kirsty was extremely helpful from the very beginning, nothing was too much trouble and she replied quickly to all my queries. Malachy was wonderful on the day and kept everyone in the right place. The food and drinks were superb. The waiting staff were great and good fun. Karen and Mike loved the hotel and its grounds when they were able to visit. Good job as I had chosen the venue. There were only seven of us at the wedding but we were treated as if we were as important as a large wedding. Many thanks everyone John and Geraldine McCormick

We would just like to thank the Dunadry Hotel and all its staff for making our wedding day special. We loved the Dunadry for the moment we first visited and the planning for the wedding day has been so easy and enjoyable with nothing ever being an issue and always having someone to contact to help us. All the guests commented on how delicious the food was and what a beautiful hotel it is. We had to postpone our wedding due to the current situation and from the start of lockdown Dunadry had been in contact with us and made wedding planning very stress free. We cannot thank you enough and look forward to coming back again in the future. Love from, Mr & Mrs Scott.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

It is difficult to pick one wedding out at the Dunadry as they are all so individual. My favourite weddings is when the full day is at the hotel. Generally one or both the couple stay the night before and the energy and anticaption is so lovely. Hairdressers, make up artists, flowers and all suppliers are here first thing bringing the excitement from the very first moments to the hotel and allowing us to be part of it. Being able to share all these intimate and special moments with a couple, their family and friends is priceless.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
