How It Works...

To make the organization of your wedding smooth as silk, our Wedding Facilitator, 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 organization of your wedding easier we have listed suppliers in alphabetical order.


Lisnavagh organizes 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.

The Lisnavagh Kitchen

Emily Bunbury M. 0877993192 or

At Lisnavagh House we offer stylish, home cooked food with ingredients sourced locally from organic suppliers and we use seasonal produce from our own walled garden. We have a strong belief in using local and quality produce and eating food in season so menus vary depending on the time of year. We have expertise as well as a great interest and enthusiasm around food! Our menus are available upon request.

Myself and my husband chose the Lisnavagh Kitchen for our pre-wedding dinner, full wedding day catering and second day brunch. I worked closely with Emily on creating four meat-free menus, including vegan options. She was considerably flexible with the options and helped us create the menus we wanted. The food was incredible and we had so many compliments from our guests, many of whom were delighted to see a change from standard wedding food. I would highly recommend the Lisnavagh Kitchen to cater for your event. > Louise & John, September 2018
