This Must Be The Place
We really know how to do gorgeous, fun, memorable weddings – whether big or small. We understand that each couple wants to begin their very own traditions, and we help to make that happen.
Our professional and personable team are a huge hit with all our bridal couples. If it’s undivided attention, detail-driven precision and long-term experience you’re after, then our team is the perfect fit.

Every couple wants their wedding to be a special day which reflects them and their lives together. With that in mind, we have built three different packages which reflect this. Like the diamonds they are named after, each experience is unique and beautiful.
We have so many beautiful spaces at The Johnstown Estate we can look after everything from an intimate dinner, to a wedding extravaganza.
You simply select where: a civil ceremony in either the Grand Ballroom or our authentic walled garden; a champagne or cocktail reception on the lawn or a festival-themed event in the gardens.
For your day, the Grand Ballroom and its private reception area and additional bars can be – exclusively – all yours.
And the food is, of course, paramount. Our culinary team take constant pride in delivering flavoursome, spectacularly presented food – whether you choose a bespoke wedding selection or one of our thoughtfully curated wedding menus.
For absolute pre-wedding indulgence, The “I Do Crew” will adore our one-of-a-kind suite: The Mulberry. The space can sleep up to 8 when paired with adjoining rooms and offers bespoke make-up and hair stations, a luxurious seating area with bar, Nespresso machine, a 50” TV and a Bose Bluetooth speaker to set the ambience.
Weddings are the perfect excuse to celebrate – both before and after the big day – so let the celebrations begin!
This will be your celebration of a lifetime, so why restrict it to just one day?
Our intimate manor reception rooms – The Burgundy, The Willow and The Rose – are perfect for personal pre-wedding dinners with smaller groups of family and friends. Larger post-wedding soirées may include cocktails and dinner in The Loft or The Sutherland Suite or a BBQ in the courtyard.
The Lady Margaret
This magnificent suite may be a cause of grave temptation. While you won’t want to miss a moment of your wedding, you may be tempted to momentarily steal away, through your private manor entrance to this secluded three-room suite.
The Lady Margaret spans the front of the manor’s first floor and includes a bathroom with a roll-top slipper tub, a walk-in shower, and double sinks.
The bedroom, in hues of taupe and blue, is a quiet haven to rest, undisturbed.
The separate living room, with double sofas and open fireplace, is the perfect place to relax and unwind after what will have been a busy but very happy day.
I just wanted to send a thank you email to yourself. We literally had the best weekend and could not fault anything. From the moment we met you before the wedding you took control and looked after everything. From suggesting day two pizzas to fixing my veil on the day and handing us champagne it was like you were reading my mind. You have an amazing set of staff there and the girl who looked after us at the top table went above and beyond to make sure everything was ok.
Sharon (i think) looked after us so well on day two and ensured everything was perfect she was so lovely!
All our guests commented all weekend on how delicious all the food was and how beautiful the hotel was. They could not fault anything.
On the morning of day 2 I went to the spa to get make up and the therapist was brilliant. I cant remember her name but she looked after me so well and I loved my makeup.
The children that were with us had an absolute ball from start to finish and the hotel was so accommodating. They loved the pool and all the facilities are spotless!
Last but not least thank you to Jonathon and Ryan from reception who helped myself and others with room queries. I know I probably had their heads wrecked but they were so professional and helpful.
I feel so sad today that the wedding is over but it was the best time of our lives and could not have went any better.
We were a bit emotional leaving the hotel this afternoon as we had such a fabulous time. From Friday at 12 pm when we met up with you to the time we left today was the best time of our lives. I have said it to you before but Tamara you put clients before yourself & for the big things you did for us to the small details things it was so professional & outstanding.
You make Lorraine & myself feel like we were royalty for the day & no one or anything could stand in our way. Our guests rang us yesterday to thank us for a great day. They said they were never at a wedding like it before. That was so intimate & emotional from start to finish. From all the staff to the food to everyone who works in the hotel were outstanding & so professional. And Tamara that is down to you & your dedication to your job.
From the bottom of our hearts, we want to thank you but that word does not seem fitting enough for what you have done for us. I could go on & on but I do not want to bore u. We will definitely be back well before our 1st Wedding Anniversary.
Love from The two newlyweds.
Hi Tamara and The Johnstown Estate team
What can I say but we had the most amazing weekend of our life! Nothing we asked for was an issue, and everyone did so much for us! The staff were amazing and extremely helpful with every detail and catered to everything we wanted to do. All of our guests had a great time and told us the hotel, the staff, and the food were outstanding! They had the best time ever.
From the moment we arrived on Thursday, until Sunday afternoon, we felt like royalty (I got a little too used to it). The Johnstown Estate management should be so proud of how well the staff run the hotel. Our wedding had no faults, and we are looking forward to staying here again!
Lots of love
Although Johnstown Estate Hotel is a luxurious hotel, it’s put up to an even higher level by the staff.
First, there was Tamara who organised with us the wedding reception we wanted. The patience she had to go back and forth with changes to the arrangements meant Covid wasn’t going to beat us. She also convinced us to make use of the swimming pool. To have a family group going for a swim a few hours before a wedding reception is something everyone should try if they are as lucky as we were.
The first welcome of our party at reception from Worjciech which was a pleasure and a few conversations throughout our stay told us what a nice warm person he is.
From managers to staff, Danny, Jason, and Adam moving between our reception and daily duties, we were so well looked after.
Even when we asked for snack food to our suite so we could meet our guests on arrival, It was done. They just breezed in and were gone as only true professionals could do. This was one of the highlights of our stay.
Beat is a joy at breakfast service. Chatty, smiling through her mask. Always in good form, just a very genuine person.
The cleaning staff, hardworking behind the scenes to turn down our bed and refresh the rooms. Another good reason for staying in our suite.
The food was gorgeous. All our guests, fussy eaters also were more than satisfied with their meals. Well done the chefs.
We singled out some staff however we praise all the staff without exception and hope you are as proud of them as we were privileged to have them make our wedding/honeymoon a beautiful memory.
We have already made one joint decision as a couple, that is we will return as often as we can even if it’s for lunch.
Covid didn’t ruin our wedding, Johnstown Estate made our wedding.
Thank you so much for looking after us so well on Friday. You made the day perfect-it would not have been possible without you.
Thank you also for your calmness under pressure when Kevin couldn’t make it. You handled it so well and put us both at ease.
The guests had nothing but high praise for all the staff. They commented on how professional and courteous they all were as well as being very friendly and at ease. All of which added to the lovely relaxed atmosphere that we wanted
There was great compliments for the food too! All weekend we heard nothing but amazing feedback about it all. From the reception food to the dinner and Saturday evening finger food. It was all amazing
Thank you again for bringing this all together for us and all of your help and support throughout. I cannot express how grateful we are.
Thank you so so so much
I hope you are well. David and I just wanted to give you a huge thank you for all of your help and everything that you did for us on the lead up to the day and on the day on Saturday. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. The day was just amazing, the room looked amazing, the grounds were amazing, the food was amazing and the service was amazing, we were just blown away and are forever grateful to you and all the staff for helping make it all happen. We had endless compliments on the venue and all of our guests were so impressed with it all. Thank you for ensuring everything ran so smoothly and putting us at ease from the get go.
We are so happy we chose to have a special day at the estate.
Wishing you all the best,
I hope you are keeping well!
Myself and Alan just want to say a massive thank you to you for all your help throughout the planning of the wedding and all your help on the day itself, you and the staff were amazing and ye couldn’t have done enough for us.
We really from the bottom of our hearts appreciate it, we couldn’t have done it without you, And we would only love to be doing it all over again in slow motion.
Everyone is still talking about the food and the hotel itself, and an unusual one- the comfortable beds ????,we were absolutely thrilled and we really can’t thank you enough!
We really had the best day!
We hope to see you very soon!
Thank you to you and everyone at the Johnstown Estate for the most wonderful weekend. Everything was absolutely perfect from start to finish , honestly we couldn’t have wished for more throughout the entire weekend.
We’ve had tonnes of compliments about the food, both wedding and day 2, the rooms, the staff – everything! It’s been such a pleasure from start to finish so a big heartfelt thank you from both of us!
In a word- Magical!
I cannot actually say enough good things about this hotel, but most importantly about the staff!!
We got married at the hotel… and every single element was just outstanding.
Upon arrival we were shown immediately to our suite to finish getting ready. Tamara … was on hand for every little detail and to ensure the day went so smoothly… she was always there to help, no matter how many emails she got from me!!
We had our ceremony enclosed within the walled garden- amazing! The setting, nestled within the ancient oak trees just made the ceremony so special. Having that walk with my mam under the pergolas was just so special for us.
We were then handed over to the amazing Emma, who was on hand to ensure the smooth running of the rest of the day. Guests got to enjoy canapés and drinks while we had our photos taken, with the stunning backdrop of the forest and river- idyllic!
Dinner service was unreal- Clodagh our server, was so accommodating and efficient. Food was perfect in every way, and this was the feeling from every guest at the wedding too…
Honestly, we are so overwhelmed with how the day went, and we will definitely be return guests for many years to come.
