This review is long overdue. We had the perfect wedding here. The most important thing is how relaxed and hassle free the whole process was. Kate and the team at Horetown house couldn't have been any better at creating the ideal environment for the day. The food was excellent, the house is stunningly beautiful the ground are amazing with great... More

I visited Horetown House for a wedding a while ago. The food and waiting staff were excellent but maybe short in numbers. I think the food is done by Phelim Byrne and the beef was amazing, would definitely recommend anyone to order it, and I wouldn't be a big meat eater! The waiting staff definitely work hard, i think they... More

We attended a wedding here in July 2014. It was one of the best wedding venues I have been too. The day was a complete wash out but the venue is fabulous. Lovely old country house, great food & a great atmosphere. The staff were lovely and very attentive. I'd highly recommend to anyone looking for a wedding venue

My wife & I attended a wedding here recently. The venue certainly has a 'wow factor' in terms of location & first appearances. The champagne & canapé reception & evening meal were top-class. However, I felt the service from the staff - while quite efficient - was a bit 'cold'. The bar downstairs was under-staffed & lead to long delays... More

Recently, we were in Ireland to attend a family wedding that included two glorious days experiencing life like what I imagine it would be in Downton Abbey! It was breathtaking from the moment we entered the huge doors into the hall to be greeted with champagne and petit fours. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating, and bent over backwards... More

I recently visited the bar of this establishment for a night out, the cleanliness of the bar and facilities left a lot to be desired as did the customer service. The management have a lot to learn. I would not recommend it and will certainly not visit it again

Dear JoJo, I am very sorry to hear you had a bad experience in our bar. Perhaps you could contact me directly to discuss this further as I would really like to resolve any issues, particularly such as customer service. We have gotten excellent feedback from the two private parties which have used the bar in the previous month but... More

We had our wedding here in July and as per the title, it was magical. We wanted something that felt homely and Horetown House was it, it was our home for the full weekend, and it was the staff that made it feel so. We had the run of the whole place and the staff accommodated us with lots of... More

Visited Horetown House recently to attend a wedding and enjoy the scenery in Wexford. What a fantastic location for a wedding! The whole place looked resplendent in the Autumn sunshine for the wedding. It didn't look bad in the rain next day either! All the rooms are extremely comfortable with lovely natural light streaming through the very large windows. Sitting... More
