Our wedding at the Waterford Castle was absolutely amazing. It’s more than a 5 stars experience, it’s like a palace experience but at a scale that’s cozy and intimate. Everybody works at the highest level of professionalism. You can really rely on them and relax on your day because you are in good hands.
