Here at Drangan Video we have been privileged to provide wedding video services to brides and grooms right across the country. Every one of these weddings has been unique and special and without exception, the venues have always gone above and beyond to provide couples with everything they needed on their big day.
There is however one very special venue that stands out to us, due to its location, the setting, decor and dedication to making every wedding as special as it can be. In this blog post we are going to focus on Mount Juliet in County Kilkenny and provide our readers with our own insight into what makes this venue so incredibly special.
Over the past 25 years we have filmed quite a few weddings at this venue and have always been taken aback by the changes, improvements and general setting of the location. Here are just a few of the reasons why we believe Mount Juliet in Kilkenny is one of Ireland’s most perfect wedding venues:
In March of this year, the Mount Juliet Estate was awarded 5* by Fáilte Ireland, one of only 42 venues in Ireland that now hold this prestigious ranking. This 5* ranking is reserved for only the most luxurious hotels and Fáilte Ireland are quite reserved about handing them out, this is a clear acknowledgement of the very high standards we have witnessed time and time again.
Choice of Accommodation
The Mount Juliet Estate offers a choice to guests by way of a 32 bedroom Georgian manor house and the 93 bedroom ‘Hunters Yard’ hotel. Both of these properties are furnished lavishly but offer 2 distinct experiences. The rooms at ‘Hunters Yard’ offer a more modern twist on luxury and feel slightly more laid back than the Georgian manor, however if you’re in the mood for something a little more regal, the Georgian manor house is definitely the way to go. We love that these two properties give our brides and grooms an incredible choice on their big day.
As professional wedding videographers we love nothing more than filming in the 500-acre estate that surrounds Mount Juliet. The perfectly manicured gardens, meadows, parkland and wooded area make it a videographer and photographers dream!
Situated just a short 20 minute drive from Kilkenny city, this location is perfect for those travelling from all corners of the country.
Over the coming months we are going to look at some more of our favourite venues and would love to hear from you about your special day and the venue that made it extra special for you and your guests.
