Venue gone downhill - AVOID
We had issues pretty much as soon as we had paid the deposit. Poor communication from the wedding co-ordinators (multiple because they kept leaving!) Broken promises (told we would be only wedding on the day, right up until 3 days before when we dropped our decor off) but on the actual day there was another massive wedding on site at the same time, interupting our photos. along with roadworks on site affecting access and the beauty of the venue. They lost and damaged our decor, admitted that they had done it but just quoted their T's & C's where they accept no liability to get out of reimbursing us. Ignored our complaints for 7 weeks after the wedding. Venue staff harrassed us repeatedly during our photos to move our cars to allow access for guests at the other wedding that shouldnt even have been on at the same time. Avoid Avoid Avoid People have told us afterwards that the venue used to be much better but its gone downhill.

Instantly fell in love!
Myself and my husband fell in love with Stanley house upon our initial visit and we instantly knew that this was our chosen wedding venue. It is a lovely building with beautiful features and surroundings. The staff are very friendly, professional and cannot do enough to help to ensure everything is perfect. Our day was planned to perfection with the help of Maddison and ran smoothly from start to finish with the help of Joe and the rest of his team. The bedrooms were all immaculate and beautifully presented. There is a good variety of food which is suitable for various dietary requirements and tastes amazing. We received many compliments from our guests about the hotel and its location as well as comments on the helpfulness and friendliness of all of the staff who was part of our day.

Unforgettable!
We booked Stanley house for our wedding back in 2018 and we instantly loved the whole feel of the venue and we knew from that moment on it was a special place and would hold a lot of memories for us.. I honestly couldn’t speak any more highly of Stanley house as a wedding venue, but more importantly the staff, they are a special kind of people and go above and beyond to help you out and make your experience there that little bit more special. We were supposed to get married in May 2020, but lockdown had other ideas and so we eventually got our day on the 16th April 2022, and it was well and truly worth the wait. Natalie, well Natalie our wedding coordinator has become my new best friend, and is the nicest person you’ll ever meet. Honestly this lady has been incredible from the moment we met. She went above and beyond for us in all the situations we were faced with and made the whole experience an unforgettable one. A moment I will never forget was on our wedding day she was the first person to greet us as we got out of the car, to later on be told that she was actually supposed to be off on annual leave as her Dad was over to visit from abroad, this shows how much of a lovely person she is, and how committed and dedicated she is to her job, and this will always mean a lot to us Natalie. There are too many instances I could mention where Natalie went above and beyond, but please know we will always be thankful. Through the lockdowns we stayed in touch via emails and we kept each other’s spirits up when things weren’t exactly great, so I’ll always be grateful for that. Natalie is an absolute credit to Stanley house and I can’t speak any more highly of her. Whenever I phoned her/emailed her I instantly felt at ease and I can hand on heart say I never ever felt stressed out, I always knew everything was in hand, and that’s the kind of wedding coordinator everyone needs. So all that’s left to say is thank you. Joe, well Joe.. What can we say other than fantastic. He was absolutely brilliant, we had plenty of laughs and I knew at our meeting a couple of days before the wedding we were going to have a blast on the day with him, you really made our day Joe! He was our go to person on our day and he excelled in everything. We had guests coming up to us asking for his name as they said they wanted to go and personally thank him for all that he did for us. Anything we wanted doing he was there to just sort it, so thank you Joe for all of your efforts, you really are a credit to the team. Thank you Joe. The food was incredible, faultless and we will certainly be back to sample more of the food! The cheesecake on our wedding day was unreal. The cleanliness of the whole hotel is second to none, the rooms were spotless and we had the most amazing stay as did all of our guests. So all in all a big thank you to all of the chefs, the bar staff, the reception staff, the cleaners and all the people behind the scenes who made our day what it was, there are too many people to thank individually but please know we are very grateful for what you did. It was simply fantastic and we couldn’t have dreamt of a better place to get married. We will be back for sure and I for sure have already told Natalie that I will be staying in touch with my emails!! Anyone who is thinking about booking a wedding with them you honestly won’t regret it. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Steph and Ciaran Large.

Simply the best!
I wish I could give more than 5 stars! We have recently got married here and it was honestly the best day of our lives. Everything from start to finish was absolutely incredible, nothing was ever too much for the staff or the venue. Many of our guests commented on the fantastic service throughout our day and throughout our stay. Due to Covid - this was the 3rd time we've had a wedding date set at the venue, each and every time Stanley House have been professional, welcoming, understanding and made us feel at complete ease. I first met my wedding co-ordinator Maddison in 2018 and I knew straight away, the venue was right for us. Maddisons caring and welcoming nature made it feel like we were genuinely cared about and it started our wedding planning process very well. She kept me up to date with everything every step of the way including on our wedding day. I felt like an extremely calm bride on my wedding day and this was down to feeling completely comfortable with how the day was going to run in their hands. Stanley House will always be an extremely special place to us, it's just simply spectacular, the grounds, the manor house, the accommodation, the spa...everything. I would definitely recommend this venue, I'm already looking forward to going back.

The perfect day..
Hi Maddison, Hope you are well. We just wanted to send a quick email to thank you all so much for making our special day so perfect. Honestly we can’t thank you, Natalie, Joe, Josh and all the staff enough for everything you did to make our wedding day amazing from start to finish. We would like to thank you for your support through the incredibly challenging time we found ourselves planning our wedding in, you were all amazing and a massive help to us. We had the most perfect day and had so many compliments on how amazing the venue was including the room and hotel. The food got SO many compliments and all our guests had the most amazing experience at Stanley house. I think you can tell from the pictures how magical our day was! Again thank you all SO much.

A day to remember...
Maddison, So I’m still not over the chaos and I suspect neither is your team but I wanted try and put down in writing our gratitude for giving us the best day of our lives From the minute I met you I knew we were in safe hands. Your communication and attention to detail was brilliant from start to finish. You helped me talk things through even not on shift with such professionalism. Pulling off a wedding that size was no mean feet and you made it look easy. The service and food on the day was impeccable. The operational staff worked there bottoms off which of course means josh and his communication with me on the day was amazing. It literally was the best day and night of our lives and Stanley house (and you 😉) played such a huge part in making that happen We will never be able to say thank you enough. Thank you thank you thank you
