“Our wedding day at The Wicklow Escape was by far the most special day of our lives.
Lisa Wilkinson and her team literally made our dreams come true. Despite all the challenges we faced due to Covid restrictions, from the start to finish we could not have asked for a more dedicated visionary working to make everything happen.
The whole place just has a magical feeling to it. Great location, beautiful inside area, outside garden area and beautiful architecture, plenty of parking, beautiful view.
It was our dream venue and we are in love with it. Beyond the stunning beauty of the venue, guests raved to us about how incredible the food and service was.
The photo opportunities are plentiful to get amazing shots with a lot of different backgrounds.
All and all, we were very happy with this venue and we recommend it to all of our engaged friends. This is the perfect venue for intimate wedding in nature.”
Karolina & Roy O’Brien
