TESTIMONIALS

THE JOHNSTOWN ESTATE

From the moment we stepped through the door of The Johnstown Estate we knew this was the perfect location for our wedding ceremony and reception, the interior design of the newly refurbished Johnstown Estate is absolutely stunning.  The well-manicured gardens also offered a splendid setting for a summer wedding with grounds providing so many photo locations and we were so lucky to enjoy beautiful weather on the day. The moment you step through the door of the hotel the décor is splendid with the beautiful atrium reception area and the newly refurbished ballroom it offered the perfect ambience and setting for our wedding. The bridal suite won us over too and is probably one of the most magnificent bedrooms in the country. The hotels owners, general manager, sales & marketing team and the staff we met on our first visit were all so hospitable that they won us over instantly with their desire for us to choose their venue”.

With the two cultural backgrounds coming together, Shreya and her parents were all born in India, we wanted a fusion of both reflected in the food for all our guests. The Johnstown Estate head chef was so open to facilitating our food choices as a number of our guests had travelled from abroad and we felt it was very important to really make them feel welcome by providing food options that were familiar too but also offering a mix of traditional Irish dining choices for those who wanted to experience something a bit different.

A rural residence dating back to 1750 and set on 120 acres of parkland over looking the Blackwater, The Johnstown Estate is a truly special pleace, with lots of lovely outdoor spaces in which to host outdoor ceremonies and drinks receptions.

ONE FAB DAY 

 

 We were a bit emotional leaving the hotel this afternoon as we had such a fabulous time. From Friday at 12pm when we met up with you to the time we left today was the best time of our lives. I have said it to you before but Tamara you put clients before yourself & for the big things you did for us to the small details it was so professional & outstanding. You make Lorraine & myself feel like we were royalty for the day & no one or anything could stand in our way. Our guests rang us yesterday to thank us for a great day. They said they were never at a wedding like it before. That was so intimate & emotional from start to finish. From all the staff to the food to everyone who works in the hotel were outstanding & so professional. And Tamara that is down to you & your dedication to your job. From the bottom of our hearts we want to thank you but that word does not seem fitting enough for what you have done for us.

We celebrated our wedding in Johnstown Estate in July 2019. The hotel is so beautiful, Tamara/Jason are very friendly and we found the atmosphere welcoming and relaxed. In the run up to the wedding any queries or questions were answered immediately. We were so impressed with all of the staff on the day. Our day ran so smoothly.. We were able to relax and enjoy the day with our guests. The hotel looked absolutely beautiful, our guests are still complimenting the food. I am a massive foodie and it is honestly the best food I have had at a wedding. We are so happy we picked Johnstown Estate for our wedding and would highly recommend it! Thank you to Tamara and Jason and all the staff!!

Hi Tamara, We just wanted to reiterate our thanks to you and all involved at Johnstown. We had the most amazing day on Saturday and everything went so smoothly. All the guests commented on how beautiful the venue was, how amazing the food was and how lovely the staff were. We really couldn't have been happier with our reception and we are so delighted we chose Johnstown. Again it was just perfect from first contact to the day itself and all the little touches in between, all the staff were so pleasant and professional, the atmosphere so relaxed and pleasant and the food was probably the best we've had.

The staff in the hotel were also so obliging for the whole weekend and could not have done enough for us. We received many compliments about the hotel and staff and wanted to reiterate to you how thankful we are for making it such a fantastic experience for us. We would highly recommend Johnstown Estate to anyone and have done so already.

We loved every bit of planning our wedding with Tamara at Johnstown Estate. She kept in contact throughout. The day of our wedding cannot be faulted. We were late arriving to hotel because of traffic but Tamara was calm and everything went off without a problem. We highly recommend The Johnstown Estate.

Hi Tamara, Now everything has settled down, we just wanted to send you an email to thank you and all the staff at The Johnstown Estate for everything you all did to make our wedding run smoothly on Thursday 14th February. You personally, are so professional yet so friendly, personal and so much fun. Nothing was ever too much trouble and you put us at ease through the whole process. You are absolutely amazing at your job and The Johnstown Estate are very lucky to have you.

The reception staff made all our guests so welcome from the moment they stepped foot into the hotel, and were so accommodating. Laura and I had a long chat on Friday morning and she is a true diamond. The bar staff (who were very busy) were amazing and joking with all the guests, even when under pressure. Everybody commented on how lovely the food was throughout their stay, especially the wedding breakfast. So thank you to the chef and waiting staff. Finally Jason was amazing also, again nothing was too much on the Thursday and Friday night.

You all made Hugh and I feel so special and important, it was the most amazing two days of our lives that we will never forget and we will never forget what an important part you and your staff played in that. We will be adding a review on trip advisor about the whole experience and can not recommend The Johnstown Estate highly enough.

Tamara thank you once again.
