Absolutely stunning venue
Absolutely stunning venue, but the staff are what make this place even better. We attended a wedding here 16.07.22 and every single member of staff was so friendly and attentive. Special shout-out to the bar staff in the evening who we had a great chat to and were both friendly and professional, especially the young lady who was only on her second shift and smashing it! Thank you so much to you all!

The team were fantastic
My husband and I (whey!) can’t thank Bethan and the team enough. From booking, to planning and putting up with our chaotic organisation the team were fantastic. Our day was made so special by Bethan and the team - their attentive nature, constant kindness, attention to detail and friendly staff supported us through the day and settled our nerves. The venue itself was spotless, beautifully presented and catered for all of our guests’ needs. Thank you so much for giving us such a special day to remember, and being part of the start of our marriage.

I have nothing but praise for this venue
We had the pleasure of having our wedding at the Lysaght Institute this weekend. I have nothing but praise for this venue. The lead up to the wedding was stress free and we were always informed and knew what to expect. Helen & Bethan were both great in organising meetings, very straight forward and did not hesitate to be supportive and answer any questions that we had. The actual day. From guests (who arrived before me), the feedback has been wonderful the team were extremely welcoming, friendly and organised. On my arrival, it was raining and Bethan greeted myself, MOH and bridesmaid from the car with an umbrella. I was nervous and Bethan was great in being the calm person I needed in the situation. Bethan also paid particular attention to my father whom was getting a little confused and agitated by the ongoing situation and Bethan was great at directing and supporting my dad. The venue was made up so beautifully, and the ceremony was absolutely perfect. Following the ceremony, we were guided downstairs to another beautifully made up room. The organisation of the room was perfect, so beautiful. The whole evening went off perfectly. One big thing for me is that my son has allergies and I completely forgot to cater a desert for him and one of the staff went to Morrisons and picked him up a desert and that absolutely made the night for me and my husband. Everyone enjoyed themselves. The djs were absolutely fabulous also. The bar staff (according to guests) were lovely. Everyone was accommodating, friendly organised. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Oh, the food: WOW
