Our First Covid Wedding
Breaffy House Hotel completely out did themselves hosting our wedding on Friday 14th of August 2020. All our guests are still talking about it, Katie the wedding manager was a star, especially when Covid first hit, she acted straight away and changed our date for us, Wilson and Una were amazing to deal with, we were very apprehensive about going ahead with our wedding during these strange times, but we really wanted to get married, the three managers were brilliant, we had numerous of meetings to try and accommodate our wedding to suit with restrictions at the time. They always made myself and Peter feel more relaxed about going ahead with a smaller number, it was the best day ever and even nicer not having too many people there, everyone that was there were our nearest and dearest and our guests were delighted and felt safe with the layout of the whole day and venue. Breaffy are blessed with all the room they have for social distancing, we were lucky with the weather that day and were able to have our drinks reception outside, all our guests loved this and they felt so safe and relaxed. Our function room was set out with no top table and all tables were seated with family only and everyone was delighted with that, with plenty of space. The staff at Breaffy were excellent and followed all guidelines in regards to COVID regulations. Everyone wore a mask at all times, we had a second day as well at Breaffy and it was lovely. We got to invite the guests we couldn’t have on the first day and they really enjoyed it. Breaffy organised a BBQ for our guests that evening, the food was outstanding, it really was. If there was anything I could pass on to other brides and grooms, if they just want to get married, a smaller wedding is definitely the way to go. I still remember everyone who was there and what conversations we had and everyone said it was the best wedding they were at. It was so relaxed and that’s all I ever wanted, and my day came true in the end.
I can only thank all the managers at Breaffy House Hotel for this to happen they were brilliant,
Thanks so much,
Amanda and Peter Flynn x
We got married in Breaffy House Hotel on Saturday 19th October 2019. To say that Breaffy House is an amazing venue is an understatement. My husband and I are both local to Castlebar and visited Breaffy House Hotel many times for various events. When we were deciding on a wedding venue, there was no competition for our first choice. A big influence in deciding on Breaffy for our wedding is its fantastic setting. Being an autumn wedding, we decided all of our wedding pictures were to be taken on the grounds in Breaffy House. The golden, brown colours of the trees and grounds were so magical. A perfect backdrop for the photos
We first met with Katie at our menu tasting and she put us right at ease with her professional, can do attitude. Her enthusiasm and passion for her job only added to our excitement. Nothing was a problem for this lady and we knew we were in good hands. Katie was always contactable and was always reassuring.
Upon our arrival on the day, Katie took charge. Her confidence and attitude reassured us both to relax and enjoy our big day. She truly made us feel like the stars of the show. The banqueting room was stunning and was decorated so beautifully. There was plenty of room for everybody. All the guests were so impressed by the professional and first-class service provided by Katie and all of the staff members on the day. Her team were efficient and competent and well-choreographed in their service and all worked very well together. That type of service can only come with experience and practice. The food was far beyond what we could ever have imagined. We did not need to ask of our guests, they couldn’t help but pass compliment on how well prepared and tasty the food was when we got around to chat with them.
I must also highly recommend The Wine Cellar. We rounded up our bridal party, and as a special thank you to them for all their hard work, took a break after dinner to have some rare whiskey and champagne in the Hotels cellar. After a hectic day it was the best way to relax and take a few moments to ourselves out of the spotlight.
Any of our family and friends who stayed in the hotel were very impressed with all aspects of the accommodation, the service and professionalism of all the staff. The team at Breaffy House Hotel are a credit to the place. It is said that the key to a great wedding is that the guests are well fed, well drank and well danced. The hotel had control over the first two aspects and did not disappoint. The dancing was our choice and the band kept the floor full all night, with an electric atmosphere. From accommodation, to food and beverages, and especially Katie and the banqueting team, a sincere and heartfelt thank you for making our big day so special and magical It was perfect

Great Wedding Venue
Can’t thank Katie and Breaffy House enough for hosting our wedding. Katie was superb to deal with from start to finish, nothing was any hassle. The hotel itself was brilliant, rooms, food, staff and grounds were second to none. Would highly recommend it to anyone planning their wedding.

The service from the day we booked our wedding to the actual wedding day was excellent. In the weeks up to the wedding Katie couldn't do enough for us, every little question we had was sorted. The day of the wedding, Una and the staff made sure everything ran like clockwork. All our guests were complementing the hotel to us, both the food and service in the ballroom and the hotel in general. Our day went off without a hitch and that was mainly down to the amazing staff in the hotel.

Number 1 Destination Venue
I got married in Breaffy House Hotel on Saturday 15th June this year and I couldn’t have asked for a better venue. My husband and I are both from Dublin and first visited Breaffy House Hotel in March 2018. From the moment we drove into the beautiful grounds, we just knew that we would be returning this year along with 250 of our closest friends and family for our big day. My bridal party and I arrived down to the hotel on Friday June 14th, while most of our guests came down on the Saturday morning. The majority of our guests stayed in Breaffy House Hotel, while those with young children stayed in Breaffy House Woods Apartments which are located to the rear of Breaffy House.
Everyone was blown away by the stunning location and first-class service provided by all of the staff members. Upon my arrival, Denice our wedding coordinator took charge and allowed me to sit back, relax and begin to get excited about my big day. From the start of our wedding planning Denice has always went above and beyond. Throughout our weekend she was on site and any questions I had were answered. All of our wedding pictures were taken on the grounds in Breaffy House. Also, for any bridal party the cellar is a real treat. We took a break after dinner to have whiskey and champagne with our bridal party. After a hectic day it was the best way to relax and take everything in. Our family and friends were treated like royalty all weekend from our family meal in The Mulberry Restaurant on the Friday evening to our wedding on the Saturday.
The banqueting room is stunning and our guests are still talking about how beautifully it was decorated. This was all done by Denice and her staff. We had our day 2 BBQ on Sunday. The weather was not great; however, this was no obstacle to Breaffy. Our BBQ was held in the Mulberry Restaurant and the food and service were first class. Our family and friends were made to feel like it was a home away from home all weekend. They did not want to leave.
The food and atmosphere were excellent all weekend. Breaffy, your staff are outstanding; from Christina in reservations, Gary in The Mulberry Restaurant who knew everyone's name by Sunday, Noreen who looked after us at the top table to Declan the night porter who gave our guests a plate of sandwiches in the early hours on both nights. All staff members went above and beyond the call of duty. I arrived to Breaffy as a stranger from Dublin but left with memories that will last a lifetime. My biggest thanks go to Denice. Our day was a fairy tale thanks to her, she is one in a million.
Breaffy, you are the No.1 destination hotel and you now have 250 guests who will definitely return. Many people leave Ireland for a destination wedding but there is no need. I had the ultimate destination for my wedding in Ireland at Breaffy House Hotel. Thank you Breaffy House, we can’t wait to return

We had our Wedding at Breaffy House Resort on Saturday, August 28th 2021. The Manager (Wilson) and Wedding Manager (Katie) were fantastic throughout the whole weekend. The pulled out all the stops for us. It exceeded our expectations a million times over, it was the perfect venue for our family & friends. From check in on the Friday morning every member of staff was there to cater to our needs. If you are looking for a relaxed intimate setting offering superb value and attention to detail there is no where better than this hotel. It may be 4* but we had 5* star service from start to finish. The food was excellent and everything was taken care of by the hotel staff. This took the stress out of it for us. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful for our photographs. We had our Wedding Ceremony on the Helipad in front of the hotel which was all planned out by Katie, this was a beautiful set up with flowers and a red carpet. The following day we had a barbecue out on the terrace with live music. This again was wonderfully set up by the hotel staff. We would definitely recommend this hotel. We looked at many different venues but by far Breaffy House is the best around. Thank you so much to you all for your hard work. It really shows how much you all enjoy and take pride in looking after your guests so well.

Breaffy House Hotel was a fantastic location for our recent wedding. The service on the day was exceptional. All our guests had a brilliant day. The food was amazing and the staff were very friendly and helpful. There were clear Covid guidelines adhered to and everybody felt quite safe in the hotel.

We would definitely recommend it to other couples

The whole planning and wedding experience with Breaffy was amazing from start to finish. I cannot complement Katie and the other members of the team at Breaffy highly enough. They were so amazing in every sense and made our wedding, and the wedding experience for our guests, very special. I will be recommending Breaffy House to everyone who is looking for a potential wedding venue and also to those who wish to experience hospitality and friendliness at its best on a breakaway in the West

New Years Day 2021
We celebrated our wedding in Breaffy House Hotel on 01.01.2021. Despite the pandemic and having to bring our date forward due to the new government restrictions, these guys made it happen!! Katie (Wedding Coordinator) throughout our planning process was amazing - so down to earth and approachable, made things easy through her knowledge, experience and fantastic personality. Everything was done with a hundred and ten per cent effort, the staff couldn't do enough for us or our guests. The meal was flawless, piping hot, delicious and abundant including dinner the evening before, arrival food, evening food and breakfast. We know everyone will recommend the venue where they got married, that's fair enough... but we think we picked a winner and would honestly say that Breaffy House Hotel & Spa Resort was the perfect wedding venue for us.
Thank you for making our day so special.

It was magical…
Myself and Alan would like to thank Breaffy house resort and especially Katie for everything they done for us to make our day as amazing as it was. To get married in the middle of a pandemic- 31/12/2020, it’s quite stressful as you can imagine, but it honestly was made so much easier when you are working alongside Katie and the team at Breaffy house. If we got the option to switch our day now to a ‘normal’ wedding day or keep with the day we had, we honestly wouldn’t change it. It was magical. I will forever be recommending Breaffy House and I cannot wait to get back their myself when it is safe to do so.
Alan & Ciara Dunne 31st Dec 2020
Breaffy House was absolutely amazing to have a wedding in. They went above and beyond and I feel that our day was treated as a wedding of 200 even though there were only 10 of us in total. We were blown away by the service and the value for money.
Clodagh & Martin Quirke 2nd December 2020
Recently got married in Breaffy House at Halloween and it couldn't have been more perfect considering the Covid restrictions. The food and accommodation was amazing. I highly recommend it as a wedding destination. Katie the wedding coordinator couldn't have been more helpful and lovely
Michele & Felix 31st October 2020
Our experience from start to finish was fantastic, we would highly recommend Breaffy House Hotel as a wedding venue. We cannot speak highly enough of Katie who is a very competent, professional and well organised wedding co-ordinator, she was a pleasure to deal with. Our wedding day was PERFECT, the venue visually, was stunning, food was absolutely amazing, the service outstanding and the accommodation and breakfast fantastic. Our visit to the Cellar with our bridal party was a beautiful touch, which we all thoroughly enjoyed. Thank You to all at Breaffy House Hotel for making our wedding day such a memorable occasion.

Wedding Day at Breaffy House
We were so happy with our wedding day in Breaffy House. Katie was amazing to deal with! Anything we asked she was able to accommodate us and advise us. She also made some great suggestions which really added to our day. The food and service on the day was fantastic. Also the bridal suite was gorgeous. Would thoroughly reccomend Breaffy House to anyone as a wedding venue.
Emily & Luke December 2019
We were so delighted we chose Breaffy for our wedding. The grounds around Breaffy are absolutely stunning and we got gorgeous pictures. Inside the venue is spotlessly clean and very elegant. We had a Christmas wedding and the function room was decorated beautifully with candles, flowers and Christmas trees. The staff of the venue went out of their way to make us feel so welcome and they were so friendly from the start of the day to the very late night. Our wedding coordinator Katie was so friendly and approachable and we met her beforehand to discuss what we wanted done on the day and it was done exactly as we asked. We had the most perfect wedding day thanks to Breaffy House.
Nicola & David - December 2019
We had our wedding in Breaffy and it did not disappoint. Katie and her team were brilliant from start to finish. I would highly recommend the wine cellar experience for the bridal party. We sat 290 for dinner and the food was amazing. All fed and finished in good time. The added touches by the team to the bridal suite were a great surprise and very much appreciated. I would highly recommend speaking to Katie before going elsewhere if planning a wedding.
