How It Works...

Flower bouquets on a swing

To make the organisation of your wedding smooth as silk, our Wedding Coordinator, Niamh Brennan, and her wonderful team, will be at Lisnavagh to advise you throughout the run up to your event.

In the meantime, we have put together a list together of top notch suppliers for you to help you get started.

To make the organisation of your wedding easier we have listed suppliers in alphabetical order.


Lisnavagh organises the bar for weddings and events. Please contact us for further information.

Lisnavagh has its own selection of wines, champagne/prosecco, craft beers, cocktails for purchase through us and tastings can be arranged.


Our recommended caterers know all about food and we have chosen them very carefully knowing that they produce stylish and excellent food. We love working with them and we are pretty sure that by the time the event comes around, so will you. They also have great ideas if you are looking to create a menu to suit your needs or dietary requirements. They offer expert advice and a service like no other. Please contact our caterers directly to discuss your requirements.
