Wedding Testimonials


Martina and Aidan, May 2018

As soon as we viewed The Courtyard we knew we had found our wedding venue for our Dublin City wedding in May 2018. The Garden Room is a stunning intimate space with beautiful light and contemporary features. At the wedding tasting we got an opportunity to taste a wide range of dishes from both wedding menus and Matt, a serious wine connoisseur paired each course with several red and white wine options. We also got a real sense of how things would run on the day and Matt took on many of the small jobs that we hadn’t even thought about!! As soon as we arrived to the courtyard after the wedding ceremony all the staff took charge and made the day so special. The food was incredible, as was the staff and service. Our guests couldn’t praise it highly enough and Lorcan the manager was constantly available and checking in with us to ensure all was well! We can’t say enough good things about The Courtyard and it made our wedding day truly perfect. THANK YOU!!

 Ann-Marie, May 2018

We had a great day on 5 May! Everything went really well. The venue looked great – we didn’t do anything extra with the tables and it all looked really simple and elegant! People are still raving about the food – while the steak was always going to be a winner, the crab and the peanut butter and chocolate cake went down a storm. The guys on the ground were great on the night! There were a couple of last minute changes to plans but they facilitated everything really smoothly!

We are so glad we chose the venue – with c 100 guests it was exactly what we wanted! Thanks for all your help with the organization!

Sinead Whelan, April 2018

The Courtyard restaurant hosted our wedding April 2018. From the moment we walked into the restaurant we knew it was the place for us. The courtyard is just beautiful and it was perfect for pre wedding drinks. We wanted something a little bit different to the normal hotel weddings and The courtyard ticked all the boxes for us. The food was fantastic and we really enjoyed our menu tasting Matt really looked after us and nothing was too much bother. The day was perfect from start to finish our guests arrived to a Processco and Beer reception in the courtyard. The band set up in advance which was perfect we danced until late and had the most amazing day. Thanks to everyone in the Courtyard for making our day so special.

Susie & Chris, 21st October 2017

A huge thank you to all the team at MPW! We had a really wonderful evening which was down to how relaxed we felt on the night. The staff are true professionals!

Our guests loved the delicious food, the atmosphere and the pure ease of the location.  We were so delighted with our choice and would not hesitate to recommend MPW’S! A special thank you to Matt, Lorcan and Trish for all their help. Susie and Chris.

Chris & Fernando, 23rd September 2017

We would like to thank you all so much for an absolutely incredible wedding reception last Saturday, it exceeded all of our expectations and we wouldn’t have changed a thing.  The food and wine was outstanding, our guests are still raving about it!  But really it’s the team at MPW that make it so special, thank you again Ciara, Gustavo, Robert and the others whose names we don’t know, for going beyond the call of duty.  You all worked so hard that evening looking after everyone but made it look effortless, always smiling and full of good cheer.  We felt so comfortable and relaxed on a day which could have been stressful.  We look forward to going back soon! Our very best wishes, Chris and Fernando.

Kev and I wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you for hosting our wedding on the 4th August past. We’re just back from a week away and still going through txts and emails full of compliments from our guests!! We are delighted that we chose your venue.

We knew from the second we entered the courtyard that that was our venue, it set the scene for our special day! Our guests were blown away by your phenomenal staff who were so friendly, helpful and couldn’t have done enough for everyone! They are a credit to your business. The food was fantastic. Everyone is still raving about the meal and we are delighted our guests were so happy!  We really can’t thank you all enough.

Sarah & Keith, 31st December 2016

Marco Pierre Whites is run by an amazing team, words hardly describe the tone, mood, style, glamour and professionalism they portrayed on our wedding day. From our first meeting in September through to our wedding day on NYE we were consistently enchanted by the professionalism shown by all at MPW’s. Each and every member of staff was gracious, courteous, attentive, and friendly. We had the most lavish wedding reception imaginable in such opulent surroundings with a truly intimate atmosphere.

MPW’s maintained their reputably flawless high quality throughout the day while hosting our 132 guests with ease, grace and five star professionalism. There is nothing generic about this venue; from the food to the atmosphere it oozes style, quality and elegance. It is an established restaurant that needs nothing but the wedding party to arrive.

We wish the team at MPW’s the very best and feel any future newlyweds would be privileged to host their reception at your venue.

“Trich, Matt, Emil and the rest of the waiting staff (particularly Gustavo!), Paddy and I cannot begin to tell you how much we enjoyed our day in MPW!! Absolutely everything was PERFECT! The food, attention to detail and level of service we received was second to none!! I cannot tell you the number of our guests who came up to us and said it was the best wedding they’d ever been to!! I cannot praise you all enough and I cannot recommend you all and the venue highly enough!! Thank you so much again!!”

Conor & Tom, 31st December 2014

“Well, I think it goes without saying that we had the night of our lives on New Year’s Eve, thank you all so much!

It was really amazing!  We were blown away with how much fun we and everyone else had.

We’ve had so many thank yous and well wishes since, and everyone has been so complimentary of the venue, the food, the service and the staff. Genuinely, best food I have ever had at a gathering of such a size, wedding or other function. And we have had so many people rave about the food. All the staff were just so friendly and so professional, all our guests remarked that the service really stood out”.
