WHY CHOOSE US
YOU’RE IN EXPERT HANDS
We hosted our first wedding more than 35 years ago. Since then, we have welcomed more than 4,500 couples to the hotel, helping them, and their families, to celebrate their special day, some of whose parents also celebrated their wedding day with us. We have a strict one wedding a day policy and every wedding or renewal of vows ceremony is unique, created around the wishes of the happy couple.
Located just outside the beautiful village of Adare, Ireland’s prettiest village, Fitzgeralds Woodlands House Hotel & Spa is set on 44 acres of organic private grounds and landscaped gardens, offering many insta-worthy spots, perfect for your photographs.
Our magnificent Fitzgerald Suite, which was recently refurbished to an unrivalled standard, boasts direct access to our gardens, a private bar and generous dancefloor. Its stunning décor takes its inspiration from Europe’s finest, iconic ballrooms resulting in the perfect marriage of traditional elegance with lavish contemporary style.
Every wedding and renewal of vows ceremony is unique. We offer a bespoke service, as standard, and include many features other hotels add on as extras. Antique china teacups for your guests’ arrival reception, Chiavari chairs, complimentary menu tasting, colour co-ordinated mood lighting, a choice of golden or silver look table décor and our floral centrepieces are all complimentary for your special day, as is the personal attention of David and Elaina Fitzgerald who will take care of every detail. And you and your spouse’s first night in our beautiful Bridal Suite, complete with breakfast and bubbly in bed, is our gift to you.
We pride ourselves on doing things differently and with distinction. Both David and Elaina Fitzgerald regularly travel overseas to research emerging wedding themes and trends, visiting wedding fairs and destinations to gather new ideas and inspiration.
We have earned a reputation for the quality of the food our talented team of chefs create for wedding receptions, even when it means serving 400+ people with a complex custom-created menu. Our dishes are prepared in our own kitchens using Guaranteed Irish ingredients from our own organic farm, Mary’s Organic Garden or our small group of trusted suppliers. And, we are able to create certified organic, vegetarian and vegan menus as well as cater for a wide range of dietary requirements, including coeliac, and also have an extensive range of children’s dining options. We even have our own in-house Fitz & Chips shop, oriental street-food stalls and BBQ options for something a little bit different!
If you would like to extend your wedding celebrations, we have a range of private event suites and dining options available to you.
We also offer special rates to your guests on each night of their stay with us.
The award-winning Revas Spa, which is located within our grounds, specialises in bridal hair, makeup and wedding day preparation.
No matter how large or intimate your wedding or renewal of vows ceremony is, we will help you create the most special day of your lives.
