Beautiful day in a stunning location. Cannot fault the staff at all, they were so attentive and made sure everyone was very happy at all times. Food was gorgeous and served promptly. Would love to see the building and grounds in summer.

We went round the castle todayandf we were dissappointed with the number of rooms available to see and the constant mention of the boothbys and of the guides personal experiences with the owner. I dont think we paid for that knowledge. We shant be coming back. However the gardens were really nice.

This was the worst weeding party I ever been. Staff are not helpful and even I would say rude. Try to cheat my brother in the bar on stupid juice. But worst bit is this that after dinner (from freezer) all guests has been kicked outside and have choice stay on cold outside or by bar where was 5 chairs... More

Had the pleasure of visiting Fonmon Castle when attending my friends wedding. It is so picturesque and the grounds are so well maintained. They had set up a marquee which was the venue for the breakfast and party which worked really well. The staff were friendly and helpful and even though the bar was quite small there were plenty of...

Very impressive. Gorgeous grounds. Large and suitably warm marque despite it raining all day! The staff were very attentive. A big shout out to the lady who went above and beyond normal expectations to take a group of bridesmaids to a wedding as a taxi came and then abandoned us! Very much an additional service for which we were extremely... More

We can't express how fantastic Team Fonmon (Tracey, Hannah & Casey) were in the run up to our big day and on our Wedding day itself. We had the added complication of planning a wedding from the US and the team gave us everything we needed to ensure our day ran smoothly and represented us as a couple. In the... More
