Nothing was too much bother for Rosalind
Thank you so much Rosalind, Cathy and all the team making our wedding day so wonderful. Ballyscullion was the first and only place we had viewed and we just knew it was the perfect venue for our wedding. We originally had been due to get married in May but due to lock down we had to postpone to October. Nothing was too much bother for Rosalind and she kept us updated at all times. Due to government guidelines we were no longer able to have a band and had to finish up at 11, but this did not hinder our day at all. We had the most wonderful day celebrating with all our friends and family, and everyone thought the marque, the gardens and firepit were amazing. Thank you again!! Rebecca & Andrew

The venue itself is so beautiful
We had our wedding here on Saturday, and I cannot even begin to describe how amazing it was! The venue itself is so beautiful and the whole day ran so smoothly. Rosalind is lovely, so attentive and helped make everything run so smoothly on the day, and even checked in with us the next day, which was a lovely touch. Cathy was so nice & helpful on the run up our wedding and was literally at the other end of the phone if we needed her or had any questions. Garry, the bar manager, is so nice and funny. A total hit himself with our guests never mind the fabulous cocktails! All the staff during the day are so friendly and so attentive! We went with arbutus catering and I honestly can’t praise enough how fantastic their food and service is! With the Covid regulations, our guests felt comfortable and safe during the day and while the cleaning services were regular and stringent, they weren’t invasive. We had some guests who were nervous about attending but with the measures in place, felt so comfortable during the day. We honestly had the best day and I can’t recommend Ballyscullion Park enough! Love, Annie & Scott Irvine ❤️❤️

Rosalind was an amazing help from start to finish.
Had our wedding at the stunning Ballyscullion Park last Thursday. We honestly don't have the words to sum up how perfect the place is. Rosalind was an amazing help from start to finish. So relaxed and easy to deal with in the run up, and such a calming influence on the day. Arbutus catering were outstanding. Again so easy to deal with and so accomodating - on a personal level they were all just so nice to us and all the guests. And not forgetting the food which was brilliant - every guest we have spoken to agreed. During a very stressful time due to COVID, everyone involved guided us through the regulations and helped us put measures in place to ensure the day was as close as possible to what we wanted. Multiple guests have got in touch to tell us that their concerns before were reduced on the day thanks to both the setup of the venue and the staff. Myself and Jeni couldn't recommend the place highly enough and can't wait to return some day in the future!! Many thanks Kyle & Jeni

Our wedding day couldn’t have been anymore perfect
Our wedding day couldn’t have been any more perfect - many thanks to Rosalind, Cathy and the team! Throughout the whole process they were great at communicating, giving advice and support especially when it came to rescheduling our wedding date. They helped to put all the precautions in place in light of the covid guidance to ensure our guests were safe throughout the day. The stunning garden & marquee made for beautiful backdrops in our photos! Thank you for making our day so special! ☺️

Couldn’t recommend Ballyscullion highly enough!
Huge thanks to Ballyscullion for an excellent day! Owners, organisers and staff could not have been more helpful. All very professional and nothing was a problem. The venue is superb and the way everything was done in light of covid guidance was great. Couldn’t recommend Ballyscullion highly enough!

On to our hosts, what a lovely family!
Attended a friends wedding here a few weeks back. The wedding was arranged in less than 6 weeks and was perfect! The grounds are immaculate, beautifully kept and make a stunning venue with plenty of choice for photos. The cottages were lovely and the apple suite was perfect. On to our hosts, what a lovely family! Nothing was too much trouble and we were left to design and arrange the spaces however we wanted. They were on hand when we needed but weren't hovering over our shoulders. Couldnt have asked for better. Would reccomend over and over again
