We would like to thank you for everything you did to ensure our wedding celebration turned out to be the best weekend of our lives. In particular, we want to thank the wonderful staff who were so genuinely warn in their welcome and could not have been more attentive. All our guests complimented the staff, delicious food and stunning setting. We are sure you will see many of them again and we are looking forward to returning to Moyvalley ourselves.

Wishing you all the best over Christmas and into 2017.

Angela & Lee, November 2016

We will send a real thank you note when we are back home but in the meantime, we just wanted to drop a quick email to yourself and Aishling to say a massive thank you. Both of you were absolutely amazing and the weekend was fantastic. Our guests, both Irish and overseas, loved the whole venue and all the staff were brilliant, especially with the kids.

Thank you again for making our wedding perfect, even if I did knock about few lanterns over with the dress down the aisle. It was the perfect venue for our wedding and we are so happy that you could accommodate us.

Cassandra & John, October 2016

We really can't thank you and all the staff enough for everything you did for us on Friday. We had an absolutely amazing day and felt so special...we loved every second. All our guests commented on what a beautiful venue moyvalley is. The food was beautiful and all the staff so friendly and helpful. I will be sure to post something on trip advisor when we get back from honeymoon!
Thanks again for everything Orla, wish we could do all over again!!

Joanna & CJ, July 2016

Just wanted to say the BIGGEST thank you for everything over the last year of planning our wedding at MoyValley. From the beginning we knew MoyValley was going to be a special place for us to have our wedding but we were blown away with how amazing it really was on the day.

The whole place has a very friendly and warm atmosphere.

It was done up so beautiful for our day and we would recommend this venue to everyone.

The relaxed environment rubbed off on everyone and this made our few days there even better!

Thank you to all the team and management there who went above and beyond to make sure we were all looked after.

Thank you again Lynn we will see you for our year anniversary 😉

Fiona & Garry, July 2016

I just wanted to drop you a line and from myself and Gary thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our day so special. From the day of our first viewing you were so friendly and welcoming and the day itself was spectacular. Balyna House looked so pretty and it was great to have the hotel for the meal and then back to Balyna house, the cellar bar for the afters really spread out the day and I know all of my guests were so impressed.

The food was incredible, everybody was talking about the chocolate strawberry at arrivals. The main meal was also great and the serving staff were so friendly no request was too much trouble. Everything ran so smoothly I and Gary were free to enjoy the day and spend it with our guests.

Yourself in the run up to the wedding, the mangers on the day and all the staff from the waitress who met us on arrival with a glass of champagne to the bar man who kept his good humour and smile into the wee hours were all fantastic.

Thank you so much for all your help, your warmth and advice was much appreciated and I would recommend you to any future brides.

Keith & Kevin, July 2016

Firstly apologies for taking so long to send this and the biggest THANK-YOU from Keith and I for making our wedding weekend so incredibly special… Moyvalley as a team certainly pulled it out of the bag and we would never hesitate in recommending you to anyone.

Orla & Lynn - Keith & I really NO really appreciate you taking all of my comments on board and making sure that every little detail was looked after, I have now been christened ‘Kevin – I’m in events – Watson’ by my charming new husband!!

Special shout out to Barry and his team - from the moment we arrived on the Friday everything was taken care of and there was always someone there to action things and make sure that nobody even knew – not easy…… And to Daniel for getting that BEEF just right- we are still getting the compliments

There are too many people to mention but from Front Desk to Housekeeping and Kitchen to Floor Oh and especially the BAR staff they were all just a credit to you all – courteous and engaging at all times….

Both our family and friends are still on a high and not depressed yet which means we all did our jobs in creating – new friendships, rekindling old friendships and creating a 1000 memories.

Jacqueline & Darragh, July 2016

I cannot put into Words how much that meant to Jacqueline and myself. You guys are such talented and beautiful people. You knocked it out of the park. A few quotes we got.

"Barry is the soundest guy ever"

"This place is amazing, everyone has been so great they can't do enough for you''

"I think it's the nicest room I've ever stayed in"

"Why have I never heard of this place until now, it's just class"

"The lads behind the bar are hilarious, they're great craic all together"

"If I had a meal like that in a restaurant id be delighted, how the hell did they pull that off for so many people"

"There was a lovely flow to the whole day, there wasn't one single lull"

"It's the first time I was ever at an outdoor ceremony, so relaxed and what a setting"

Jacqui & Peter, July 2016

Well words cant say enough how fantatic this venue and staff are! We had a 2 day wedding between Hotel and Balyna house which we rented for 2 nights and to say ot was AMAZING is an understatement! The staff are second to none Ive worked in and with hotels for over 13 years and nothing touches the service provided in Moyvalley!
We had Lynn as our dedicated co ordinator and well she was INCREDIBLE every last request was executed with perfection! She advised us when we were unsure and was an absolute diamond from start to finish.
The Bar men were fantastic we had Evan run ragged with requests and he never faulted with a constant smile and great banter! Ben was also a star too!
The food was second to none from the Breakfast to dinner and BBQ it was totally delish!
I really cant recommend this venue highly enough and if you can I would really really recommend renting Balyna house for 2 days amd having a BBQ day 2 it was a superb weekend none of us will ever forget!
Thank you all SOOO much x

Bebhinn & Andrew, May 2016

We are so delighted we booked Moyvalley for our wedding, It was the perfect place for us. All of the guests were very impressed with Balyna House and the surrounding grounds and everyone commented on how helpful and friendly the staff were. The food, from the canapes and evening meal, to the breakfast the next day were all first class. I would highly recommend Moyvalley and Balyna House.

Karen & Austin, March 2016

We had our wedding here on March 5th 2016 and what a fantastic day!

Everybody was absolutely superb in particular the two Lynn's, Orla and Simon. We can honestly say We have never felt so looked after in all our life.

Lynn was a superstar in the run up to and in the days before the wedding in so many ways but In particular helping us decorate and set out our stuff and giving us ideas etc and insisting she take over from me decorating so I could run to get my dress when I'm sure she was due to be gone home hours beforehand-you don't see that too often and I will always be grateful for this.

Orla -what a gem!! You did so many things for us in terms of detail and decoration for the day that you knew I'd notice (and I did) which really made us both feel so well looked after. It was the best surprise to come into see all these extra bits on the day when I thought I knew everything that was happening-it was like you got into my head :) Always lovely and polite-even when dealing with my long list of things to double check etc at all hours of the night :)

Simon-we are still wondering do you ever go home :) Simon was more than fantastic at keeping in touch with us both all day so we were fully aware of what was happening and when and checking in to make sure we were happy at all times and when which meant no stress for us!! He had everything under control and was so admirably cool and calm about it all right up to when we left on Sunday afternoon-when he was still there getting ready for Mother's Day.

Similarly all the bar and wait staff on the day and at the menu tasting. What a lovely friendly kind bunch who are each an absolute credit to their employer. People are still commenting on how wonderful,warm,polite and helpful you all were.

Finally but very importantly the food-fantastic!!! From the chocolate strawberries which I heard were a big hit, the macaroons right up to the main meal and after food everything was without fault.

If anyone is looking for 10 star care in the most beautiful setting in Ireland with the warmest staff you could ask for then this is the place to get married!!! At least meet them and check it out and while you're there grab a bite to eat - you wont be disappointed!!


 Maeve & Shane, March 2017    

We had our wedding reception in Moyvalley Hotel with 140 guests in March 2017, and honestly could not have hoped for a more perfect day. From the first day we met Orla, our wedding coordinator, we felt completely at ease and confident that she would do everything she could to help us organise our wedding day. She listened to our ideas and made suggestions to add to the laid back, fun day she knew we wanted. The Wedding day was brilliant and Orla made sure we had absolutely nothing to think about except enjoying our day with all our friends and family. We started with our drinks reception in the beautiful Balyna house, followed by dinner and dancing in the reception room in the main hotel, and then back to the cellar bar in Balyna house for the residents bar. Our guests were delighted with the service provided by all the staff and spoke about how much they enjoyed the day. The food from beginning to end was delicious and of an extremely high standard. The hotel rooms were extremely comfortable and excellent value for our guests, with the option of staying in the houses right beside the hotel being great for groups. The bridal suite in Balyna house was pure luxury and a lovely treat. Overall we cannot recommend Moyvalley Hotel highly enough as a wedding venue.

Lisa Marie & John, September 2017

We had our wedding here on the 9th of September 2017. We remember driving around most of louth and Meath looking at venues all day and none took our fancy until we drove in the gates of moyvalley. The minute I turned in and started driving up the avenue I knew thus was going to be were our wedding reception would be and I wasn't wrong. We met the wedding coordinator who from the first word out of the her mouth was polite and welcoming and just gave us the run of the hotel and house to look around. We both agreed that this would be the venue and paid a small deposit which wasn't crippling. From the moment we left the hotel that day we had not one thing to worry about we were assigned orla as the planner and we couldn't have got a better person if we tried she was outstanding and answered every question we had at any time of the day and assured us that it would be a day to remember and guess what she wasn't wrong. We arrived at 3.30 on the wedding day to be greeted by friendly staff who went completely out of there way to make sure everything was perfect. Later in the evening we went to the reception room were again orla was there to make sure everyone was having fun. Onto the room which was decorated just as we asked for no corners cut. The meal then was just perfect and the amount of people commenting on it the next day and still today is unbelievable and that is a credit to all the kitchen staff no one was left wanting that night. After the meal and evening entertainment we moved onto the residents bar were we were allowed basically take over until the early hours. I honestly can't say anything bad about this hotel or the staff or the food or the rooms i could go on but I'll only bore you. So my honest advice is if you plan on getting married and want it to be a day you will talk about in 20+ years head straight to moyvalley ask for orla and sit back and relax. Thanks guys you really made our special even more special so thank you very much

Cathal & Lizzy, October 2017

We had our wedding in Moyvalley Hotel / Balyna House on October 28th 2017 and enjoyed every minute of it. We had 175 guests on the day and had our reception drinks in Balyna House and then the main dinner in Moyvalley hotel which was really great and a nice mixture of old and new. We really can't thank the staff enough (especially Orla, Simon & Aisling) who catered for our every need. It really is an amazing wedding venue with great staff and competitive rates. The cellar bar was a real high light and we had our resident bar drinks here until the wee hours! Couldn't fault this hotel, it lived up to and exceeded our expectations.

Colette & Will, May 2015

We had our wedding in Moyvalley in May 2015 and it did not disappoint. It was everything we had hoped for and more. The reception in the house was lovely. The baked goods and canapés were very popular and our guests loved the house and gardens. From the point of view of the couple, we really liked the we were able to have our photos taken in the grounds behind the house so we were nearby to all our guests.

We has dinner in the hotel because our number was too large for the house. Everything was great. The atmosphere was really good, the staff were really enthusiastic and the food was delicious and plentiful. Our guests also complimented the wine. Catherine in the restaurant was excellent too. Our other wedding suppliers, band, photographer, photobooth, florist, etc… had no trouble getting access or setting up and the hotel staff were cooperative and helpful with them.

We dealt with Lynn R who was really excellent at all times. Lynn C also helped us out and was great too. Nothing was ever too much trouble and we really felt that we were listened to and that everybody tried to give us exactly what we wanted. We rented Balyna House for the night of the wedding so that our immediate families and bridal party would all have a night in those rooms. (The rooms really are beautiful!) Many of our guests stayed in the hotel for the night and we had a chance to meet up and chat over a delicious breakfast the next morning. The whole event flew by without a hitch. There were some nice touches too in the form of little surprises from the hotel which I won’t ruin now by describing.

We could not recommend Moyvalley highly enough. We thought it was good value given that the house and grounds make is so much more than a standard hotel. We did not have even one negative piece of feedback about the venue from any of our 160 guests. We wish all the team in Moyvalley every success in future,

Naomi & David, June 2015

Where to start, we had our wedding here on 26th June. Everybody that attended the wedding is still raving about the stunning venue, gorgeous food and amazing friendly staff! Both Lynn and Orla looked after us so well during the run-up, day itself and throughout the whole weekend, nothing was too much! Daniel the chef was brilliant and made sure we were happy with everything being served. Barry and Simon where brilliant on the day and made sure that everything went smoothly. We had a BBQ the following day in Balyna House and again everybody was impressed with the amazing feed and how well we were looked after. I would highly recommend any couple to have their wedding here. We wish we could do it all again but exactly the same way!

Thanks a million.

Fiona & Robert, June 2015

Myself and Rob and all our family and friends had an amazing day. Everything was perfect from the Room to the food, the way you and your team decorated the place. It all looked amazing. Just wanted to send u and your staff a big huge thank you for doing a wonderful job on our wedding day.
Were very impressed with everything. Thanks so much for everything. We will definitely be recommending your hotel and we will definitely let everyone know how much of an amazing job Orla, Lynn and all the staff did.
Thanks so much.

Marie & Glen, September 2015

We had our Wedding on the grounds of Moyvalley Hotel and Golf resort last month and I cannot rate my experience high enough. We had our reception in the Stone House and it was so beautifully decorated that it was a magical experience walking up the aisle. The reception was held in Balyna House and I could not have asked for a beautiful venue to share with my family on my special day. The meal was fabulous, my guest were very impressed. It was beautifully presented and hot, which in my experience is a rare compliment. So a big thank you to the chefs and waiters and waitresses on the day. You are the hidden gems in the hospitality industry.

A special thanks to Barry, he kept a very cool head on the day when the little things went wrong!
And lastly a huge thanks to Orla, the Wedding and Events Coordinator. From the start she was just as excited for my Wedding as myself and my now hubby were. There was nothing that she wouldn't do for us to make the day as special as it was. There was nothing I had to do but turn up, get beautified, get married and have fun. Orla and her amazing Team did the rest.
I cannot recommed Moyvalley Hotel enough to other Brides-to-be. So if you are reading this and think of having your wedding there, go check it out you will fall in love with it instantly. Simon, has created a brilliant staff team and it was an absolute pleasure to share my day with them.

Thanks again to everyone.

Ruth & Noel, August 2015

Dear Moyvalley Team,

First and foremost, our sincere apologies this testimonial is such a long time coming. We have had a hectic couple of months since the wedding and shockingly are still getting around to some of our post wedding to do’s.

Ruth and myself just wanted to thank the entire Moyvalley staff for making our wedding day perfect for the two of us and our guests. We both had an amazing time and our guests had nothing but good things to say about Moyvalley and its staff. Everybody loved the food and the venue and we’re over the moon we chose to celebrate our wedding day there.

Lynn was our wedding coordinator and she went above and beyond to meet all our requests and ensure everything was set up exactly how we planned on the day, so a massive thanks to her!

Thanks again!

Aileen & Krigh, June 2015

To all at Moyvalley,
It's been three months since our wedding and we can't believe how quickly time has flown by.
We want to say a huge thank you to everyone at Moyvalley for the amazing weekend we had for our wedding at Balyna House.
A very special thank you to the wedding co-ordinators we dealt with over the months. Lana, Lynn R, Lynn C & Orla. You were all amazing, answering all our many questions, making suggestions and reassuring us that all was under control. Your quick responses were really fantastic and between you all we always got all the information we needed.
Another special thank you to Barry, who was a very calming presence on the day. He kept it all running smoothly. A terrific guy who is fantastic at his job !
We had a magical few days at Moyvalley. For us it was the perfect venue. Being able to have the ceremony and reception in the same place with all our guest staying in the hotel or cottages was exactly what we were looking for. It kept everyone together all weekend and we felt like Balyna House was our home from home for the few days. Our guests from Ireland, UK and Canada were blown away with the house, hotel and its grounds. It was so peaceful and beautiful and well maintained. All the advantages of a modern hotel with the charm of a country house. The food for the meal exceeded our expectations. The wedding co-ordinators helped us shape the day they way we wanted it and the staff could not have been more helpful. We have amazing memories for our beautiful wedding at Balyna House, Moyvalley as do our guest and we can't wait to come back for another visit.

Pamela & Robert, June 2015

We had our wedding reception at Balyna house, last June.
Our wedding was everything we could have wished for. On the lead up to the wedding, the wedding coordinator Lynn and her team, were very helpful and had everything in hand. They put us at ease and no query or request was too small.
On the day of the wedding, Ann and her team in Balyna house were amazing. They were very professional and courteous, putting us at ease from the moment we arrived. The ambiance was exactly as we envisaged, formal while still being relaxed.
Our guests are still talking about how much they enjoyed the venue and continue to compliment the staff.
If you are looking for a venue we would highly recommend Moyvalley, you wont be disappointed.

Thank you again so much!
