Jane and Sean Ogle onby
We had our wedding at Markree Castle Sligo on 6 April 2013 and we had an amazing day.
From the moment we walked in on our first visit to discuss reception ideas and book it nothing was ever a problem. We stayed several times in Markree before the big day and each time the service and cleanliness of the bedrooms were second to none.
On the day itself we had arrived later than expected for dinner to start so we had to quickly sit down to dinner but that was fine. Canapes and sparkling wine with tea, coffee and biscuits were served for our waiting guests before we arrived and we had a Disney theme to our reception so Markree had sorted the organising of switching on the overhead projector to display old Disney films/cartoons and of course switch on our ipod for Disney music.
Dinner was delicious and served 1st class. Cutting of the cake and speeches were after. Everyone still comments about how lovely dinner was compared to other venues. Portion sizes were just right and quality of food superb.
We then were able to go into a different lounge area where the band were setting up. The only thing that could be changed about Markree was to have their bar area served by the lounge and not in the different bar area they have as none of our guests knew the music had started or hear their song requests.
It is a lovely intimate exclusive castle perfect for our numbers - 76. We stayed on the extra night and still received excellent service. We can't wait to go back again and again. Love Markree Castle!
