We cannot speak highly enough of Sean and his team in Langton House Hotel. From the very first phone call, Sean made me Feel like a special bride. Sean was so accommodating and there wasn't any request that was too big to ask for. The Set, with its beautiful interior and ornate features, was the ideal venue for our small WEDDING. While a beautiful table plan is typically used for micro weddings in the Set, when we requested to have regular round tables. Sean went to great lengths to make sure everything looked right. He even went out of his way to order new that would ensure the 6 guests at each table would not look 'lost'. Our guests raved about two things on the day - the prompt service and the food. We were spoiled with very generous portion sizes and some of the best Fillet steaks ever eaten. Table service worked a treat as it avoided the attraction of chatting near the bar. We also availed of the many cute spots around Langton for our wedding photos and managed to get a very special group photo against the beautiful backdrop of the Ivy wall and willow trees in the car park.
We are forever grateful to Sean and his team for making our wedding day so special. It is true what Kilkenny people say, "YOU REALLY CAN'T BEAT THE QUALITY AT LANGTON'S". We look forward to celebrating many more family milestones at Langton in the future. Thank you so much❤

We give Langton’s the 5 stars:
* Great Food
* Great Staff, with attention to detail
* Unbeatable Value for money
* Unique Wedding Venue
* Terrific Atmosphere.
We had our big day on the 31st of Oct. 2020 (level 5-covid and it was the best day of our lives. There were lots of changes in COVID regulations prior but our , Seán Read, looked after everything and ensured we had a hassle free, perfect day.
The COVID regulations meant that we ended up with our own private hotel, exclusively for our wedding party. We had a red-carpet champagne arrival before we entered Bridie's bar. The bar is really and decorated fantastically as a traditional Irish pub with the addition of candles & rose petals to set the mood. This created a warm intimate atmosphere where we could just throw off our jackets and instantly feel relaxed. We had mulled wine and canapés in the bar and weeks later my family are still talking about how nice they were. As the evening progressed, we transferred into the theatre set. The most beautiful and unique venue I have ever been in for a wedding, the architecture and the way Seán's team laid out the venue was magical. The food was great, the meat was so tender, and the medley of desserts satisfied my sweet tooth. Then came the dreaded speeches, we all performed well but unfortunately two of my siblings, living abroad, could not be present. Seán however came up with a solution. My brother and sister recorded their well wishes, embarrassing stories and a bit of banter and we played the pre-recorded virtual speeches on the massive theatre cinema screen! As the speeches finished, we relaxed and watched the final game of the 6 nations on the big screen while drinking, chatting and laughing the night away.
We’re walking a foot taller after our big day. Thank you so much Seán & the team at Langton’s for the great memories that we’ll always keep in our hearts.

We got married in Langton house hotel on the 17th of January. I could not the praise this venue enough its absolutely stunning in every aspect. We knew the first time we viewed it that it was "the one". We had our drinks reception in the SET theatre which is just and such a great atmosphere. Followed by our evening reception in the ballroom. All my guests are still raving about how good the food was. But what really stands out most of all about is the service from all the amazing staff, they are helpful in every way and could not do enough. A very special mention to , from the day we decided on to our wedding day, was always on hand to answer any questions or to help in any way he could. He is an incredible asset to . I really could not recommend enough to any couple on the hunt for the perfect venue.

We had our wedding in House Hotel on October 24th and we are struggling to try and put into words how amazing it was. From the moment we walked into just "for a look" while we were scouting different wedding venues, we knew it was the right fit for us. In fact, we booked it there and then! is , especially the Set theatre where we had our ceremony, and the magnificent ballroom which can only be described as breathtaking. Our guests all raved about the food (our sincere compliments to the chef!) and the waiting staff who were extremely professional and friendly. The day went absolutely and I would absolutely recommend for your wedding. Now on to Seán! Seán met with us when we booked and stayed in contact with us throughout the planning and of the big day. I really can't speak highly enough of his manner, professionalism and attention to detail. Absolutely nothing was a problem. From little personal touches that we wanted to include on the day, to Seán altering the fantastic menu to be inclusive of the many vegetarians we had, including me! ( falafel main dish was !!) Seán took everything in his stride and made the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable for us. We would also like to mention Lorraine who was just brilliant and took such great care of us on the night, and Louise at reception who was a joy to deal with, especially with my devastating hangover the next morning (sign of a good night!) our guests were raving about every single element of the day, especially the staff, food, and atmosphere, and myself and my new husband just can't get over how easy and fun it was to plan. If you are planning a wedding, I can't stress enough just how wonderful it has been. is truly breathtaking and Seán and his team will simply spoil you with the absolute best day of your life. Thank !

were exceptional with the lead up and on the day of our wedding. I genuinely could not fault them. They made it so easy. Attention to detail, great staff.

The second we walked into The Set Theatre we knew this would be the place we'd be married, and it was the perfect choice! really has everything, so many lovely little nooks and crannies and beautiful rooms. We descended on for 3 days in September 2019, and the staff were just incredible during our stay. Our ceremony in The Set was beautiful, the art deco surroundings of the ballroom made our dinner , and the party back in The Set with the best band & DJ around (Till Death Do Us Party) meant that our guests are still raving about the night weeks later. Sean Read as wedding planner has been incredible since the first we met him almost 2 years ago. Knowledgeable, helpful, matter of fact, he gets the job done so well with no fuss. Brid was brilliant too. The same goes for all the staff we came across in over the 2 years planning and party, from receptionists to bar staff to housekeeping, just helpful people. & Shane are SO glad we chose this amazing venue, in the heart of gorgeous Kilkenny, for our wedding celebration. Can't recommend it enough. Thanks again Sean & all, Love from Noelle, Shane & Jesse

Absolute perfection from start to finish. Sean and Bríd went above and beyond to make everything perfect. Every member of staff is friendly, kind and conscientious. The food and service unparallel, along with the decor and bright atmosphere.
by Lisa Perkins on Mon, 9th 2019
We cannot thank Sean and all the team at enough for giving us the most amazing wedding day. We knew the moment we saw Set and Bridies that our day would be unique and special but what really stands out for us is the dedication to detail, impeccable service and customer care from all the staff we dealt with. Nothing was too much and we always knew we were in safe hands. Everything to the atmosphere, the music and accommodation was just fantastic! We are so grateful to everyone who helped make this the most amazing experience and cannot wait to come back for a stay. Lisa and Bernard

Having got engaged in September 2017, seven weeks after meeting, Liam and I set about looking for a venue for our Wedding. We had about eight possibilities on our list and having visited the first venue, Langton House Hotel, we knew this was it, offering everything we wanted and more. The Ballroom was ideal in the 250 guests we intended inviting and the Set something very different, where our Civil Ceremony would take met with Sean Read, Banqueting Manager, Wedding Co , skilled in event planning and very professional in his approach, our was booked for 27th 2019. Sean and his team work very much in harmony with and this was very evident from our first engagement with them. We had two menu tastings and presented by Damien, who facilitated in the dishes to satisfy our tastes. Nothing was impossible and his aim was to please. All our needs were catered and the help extended to us in the preparations and run up to our Wedding was exceptional. Sick and all as Sean was on our , he was present to welcome both Liam and I, a sign of pure dedication to his Job and loyalty to us, the Wedding Couple. Lorraine, so warm and caring and Damien took over for the rest of the day, both delivering to the highest standards and facilitating our every needs. Our Wedding was magical from start to finish, thanks to the Management and staff of Langton House hotel. The guests in their entirety have said it was the best Wedding they were ever at complimenting the venue, ceremony, drinks reception, music, food, decor and staff. Our follow up day was in Bridie's bar where Damien's presence and accommodation of our needs was much appreciated. In summary, we would highly recommend Langton House Hotel to any prospective Bride and Groom where your day will be met with fab venue, food, staff, service and memories. Sincere gratitude to all involved in making our day special. L&M X

What can I say about Langton House Hotel to be honest all the words I could write would never sum up our experience or just how wonderful this place truly From our very first meeting with we knew that was it we had to get married there the hotel literally took our breath away with such beautiful rooms what really stood out for us was its not your typical hotel every bit of decor is so quirky and fab but fits so well together. The staff are amazing each and they really couldn't have done enough and made us feel so loved and welcome. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them. The food was superb still now 5months on people are still talking about the food and how it was restaurant quality it was divine to say the least. We were so sad to leave after the best few days of our lives and because the planning can take a while it felt like we knew and it was like leaving friends. I WOULD 100MILLION% recommend to any future bride and groom.

Having arrived at one day for a ‘look’ we bumped into & ended up booking our wedding within an hour! For a bank holiday Friday on one of the busiest weekends in Kilkenny The packages they offer are amazing, they our band, , arrival music, decorated to our scheme, dietary requirements weren’t a problem with the chef & lots more. Our arrival drinks reception was in the SET, stunning, the area is so private & drinks & canapés were plentiful. Teresa met us at the door with bubbly & kept us topped up. It’s like something from a magazine! Our banquet was in the Ballroom, we had additional entertainment throughout our meal & along with our candy cart photo booth which wasn’t a problem to set up; & staff took care of those suppliers all the wedding crowd. Aidan the head chef made a vegetarian/ coeliac especially for us & people are still talking about it, the food was just top class. The servers were on the ball, checking each table regularly to see if they needed anything extra but it was plentiful. The meal was so quick, no delays or long wait between courses which is what you want at a Our daughter was one of 10 kids & they had been so well looked she refers to as ‘our wedding hotel’ & hopefully she will always have the memory. Every couple is left feeling like they’re the only couple in the diary, nothing is too much to ask for. Having met outside of the premises & knowing us on a first name basis! I can’t say enough about , from the front of house, cleaners, bar staff, to the moving furniture behind the scenes. 10/10 for our day, can’t fault one thing, just wish we could do it all again. Ash, Adie & Robyn

Myself and my husband Neil had our wedding in the Set theatre on July 19th. It was perfect!!!! Our ceremony was in The Set, we had our drinks reception between Bridie's and the Set and the meal and dancing were back in the Set that night. Having only ever been to gigs in the Set theatre in the past I was a little nervous about having our wedding in a venue so suited for live bands but it was fabulous!!!! The staff had the theatre looking beautiful for both our ceremony and meal. The food was fabulous as it always is in . The staff could not have been more helpful or polite. was a great help with the planning and Lorraine was an absolute star on the day and made us feel so at ease. Our guests had a fantastic day and are still commenting about how perfect the venue was for a smaller wedding (89 for meal and 50 more to ). It really was the best day of our and we are both so glad that we chose the beautiful Set theatre and the Langton's wedding team for our big day. We could not recommend the venue enough to anyone considering it. Miriam and Neil x
by Conor Leavey on Mon, 26th 2019
Surpassed all our expectations. Staff were incredible and looked after us and the guest throughout the day. Food was incredible. So many details that the staff looked after and so many little surprises and added touches. Would highly recommend booking. Hard to find a better venue.

were excellent, 5 dealt with Brid and Sean, they were lovely and excellent at what they absolutely no complaints.
by Áine Gannon on Mon, 26th 2019
I was initially hesitant in choosing Langton House Hotel for my wedding because my own sister had her wedding there a few years ago. after our first meeting with Seán we knew we had found not only our venue but a place for our ceremony also! We had our ceremony in the Set Theatre and reception in the Hotel Ballroom. Seán and his team couldn’t do enough for myself, my husband and the wedding party. The wedding package that we chose included all the extras band, DJ so we had a huge amount of stress taken away from us already. The Set was a gorgeous setting for our intimate Humanist ceremony and the convenience of remaining in the same complex for our reception meant that our guests could relax as soon as the ceremony was over. We even had our wedding photos taken on site at the hotel, without having to travel again. The food was . Even at our menu tasting, it was so hard to make a choice as it was all so good! our guests were catered for with no fuss, including vegans, vegetarians and coeliacs. The next day we opted to have a small gathering back at the hotel in Bridie’s and the staff once again looked after us so well. our guests have complimented how Wonderful and we had many from outside of Kilkenny who were left very impressed and wishing to return. The excellent impression made is down to the hard work and professionalism of Seán and his team. Thanks to all the staff for making the best day of our lives so relaxed and so enjoyable for all of us! Áine and Colin

We got married in on the 8th of June 2019. From the moment we went to the wedding fair and met the our minds were made up. The venue is so unique, it gives you so much choice on different sections that you can host your wedding in. We got Married in the Set theatre, drinks reception in Bridies and dinner in the Ballroom, The Décor in each area stands out on its own. The menu choice and food , it gave different options that you would not see on your standard menu. Sean and his team at are unbelievable, the service they give is top standard, every need catered for and make the day run as smooth and enjoyable as possible. We stayed for 3 nights over the wedding weekend and from check in to check out we couldn't be it was the best weekend at the best venue. So happy we picked .

Had a fabulous day and couldn’t rate highly enough. Would recommend them to anyone thinking of tying the knot.
by Aoife & Sean Buckley on Sat, 24th 2019
We could not recommend as a wedding venue more highly. From start to finish we had the most amazing day, as did our guests. It's a venue that's just made for craic and mingling. Our initial drinks reception was in the outdoor area which was fab as it was a sunny day but also covered over enough for the few showers that we had. We then had the rest of the evening in the ballroom which is just such a beautiful room. The food was unreal (the fish and chips option went down an absolute treat) and the staff were quick with the wine top ups which is a definite plus! We loved the fact that the bar is in the same room and that the smoking area is just through the conservatory. It kept the guests together somewhat. Another thing we loved is that we were allowed to have our second round of food after the band at around half 12 which was late enough so that people were again and wanted it. It was a pig on a spit with all the extras and everyone loved it. We were also able to have a sing song in the bar afterwards. Most of our guests including ourselves had never been at a wedding in and people have been raving about it ever since. Seán and Bríd were extremely helpful beforehand as were all the reception staff. They were easily contacted and quick with a reply. We couldn't fault the whole experience. Loved every minute.
by Sinead and David Keane on Fri, 26th 2019
We had the best day at , the professionalism of the team there allows everything to flow seamlessly, allowing us to have a fabulous day. Last minute requests by us were no problem at all for Sean and his team, which was greatly appreciated. The quality of food was praised by many throughout the night - it was excellent. The layout of the ballroom and seating/ bar area outside catered perfectly for guest who did not want to be in the middle of the band experience, but still very much part of the craic. The whole experience was relaxed, great service and excellent value for money. I would highly recommend as a wedding venue - wonderful team.
by Lisa on Fri, 19th 2019
My wedding day was and I want to thank all the staff in in making the day so special. All the guests commented on how lovely all the staff were and nothing was too much trouble also the set theatre where we had our ceremony was beautiful and unique. A big shout out to Sean who was brilliant at arranging everything and was great at keeping in touch. Thank you all

We had our wedding in Langton House Hotel on the December 2018. It was !! We had such an amazing day from start to finish. The Team at were exceptional. The professionalism stood out and the venue looked incredible. We had our drinks reception in the Set theatre before moving into the ballroom for dinner and dancing. Everything was expertly managed by Sean Read who was outstanding and went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect. Our guests were blown away by the setting, fine details and most importantly the food, it was second to none. We honestly recommend Langton House Hotel highly enough. We wouldn’t have changed a thing. Aisling & Liam

Where to start. My wife and I decided to go on a weekend away to Kilkenny and after recommendations from friends and much Googling, we figured Langton's was a safe bet to have a base to explore Kilkenny and have fun in a reputable hotel. We ended up mainly staying in the hotel bar! The warm, friendly staff and environment of the hotel had sucked us in and we happily obliged. As we rambled through the different hidden areas of the hotel, we stumbled upon a wedding in the set theatre. The place was hopping! There was a palpable energy from the party in what was an idyllic setting. The seed was and we began to investigate getting married in Langton's. When I the value for money of the packages, our fate was sealed. It made perfect sense-centrally located for all attendees, in a picturesque city, affordable and in a vibrant, well-renowned hotel. From start to finish, Seán and his staff were a joy to deal with. Everything was done on time, with no hassle. After our tasting, we knew we made the right choice having received some delicious food and a complimentary meal and round of drinks before that with the in-laws. Seán made us feel like royalty from the day we inquired to the day we left after the wedding itself. The warmth and friendliness of the staff was something that struck us. It seems to be a very happy place to work which feeds off onto its guests. The day of the wedding, Seán's calm demure put us at ease and glided us into the ceremony which ended up being our part. The theatre was the perfect setting. Everyone was blown away by the positive vibes and our guests have been singing the praises of Langton's and the ceremony ever since. The ballroom easily fitted in all our guests (96) without it feeling too big, as we boogied the night away after our delicious meal. I've used too many characters so I'll sum up. Food-5, hospitality-5, value for money-5, uniqueness/setting-5, general aura/ambiance-5. We couldn't have been happier!

We recently got married in April of this year and our reception was held in the ballroom in , from the first time we met with Sean about booking the wedding everything was So easy and a problem, the time and care that is put in from the team is exceptional. They are so welcoming & accommodating. The day of the wedding everything was amazing from the food to the venue. The food was remarked by guest on how good it was. Sean and the team really looked after us the day of the wedding and kept everything on track for us us even thinking of anything. I couldn’t recommend them enough it was pleasure having them look after us.......
by Emily on Sat, 22nd 2019
Faultless, exceptional, excellence even enough to describe our experience. hotel is a true example of excellent and I couldn't recommend them enough as a wedding venue. From the moment we booked, through to the moment we left, and even after, hotel was a dream! The food was impeccable! We had a very specific view of how we wanted our food and nothing we asked for was too much! Aidan was so fabulous to deal with, he and his team exceeded our expectations, along with our guests! I think the food may have been the most talked about feature of our day! The venue itself is just stunning, our ceremony took place in the Set Theatre which is so unique and beautiful! Our reception was in the stunning ballroom, which has such a classic and elegant atmosphere. Although it is a huge venue, the day felt exactly how we wanted, romantic and intimate! The team at are the heart of this amazing venue. There is nothing that is too much for them! Sean and Brid could not have done anymore if they they were easy, professional and basically did everything for us, they were both fantastic! Lorraine is a gem, she stayed by my side for over 10 hours with nothing being too much for her, including helping me out of my shoes! I could honestly write forever about this venue and the team. We will be forever grateful to for making our wedding the most amazing and memorable day! Thank you!
by Abbie Cahoon on Fri, 21st 2019
Langton as a venue is beautiful and very interesting. The SET theatre is so unique and having both our ceremony and evening celebrations there was fabulous! Sean Read is brilliant, very easy going and creates a lovely, calm experience on the big day. No request is silly. The reception staff are lovely, especially Catherine who was always all smiles and excitement. Our guests had an amazing time
Caitriona on Thu, 8th 2018

Booking this hotel was the best decision we made about our wedding! From our first meeting with we loved it and knew it was exactly what we wanted for our humanist ceremony which was a beautiful and relaxed Nothing was a problem for the team and from the front desk, bar staff, (who had my sister's room ready with cots early as she had 2 small babies with and wedding co- we felt like we were the first wedding they ever and we felt so important to The day itself went so smoothly our guests are still (6 months later) telling us it was the most relaxed atmosphere they ever experienced at a The food was excellent, the service 100% and down to special orders for our very young guests being served with no The next morning all our personal items and cake were boxed up and ready for us to bring home which was a huge
I can't recommend Sean, Damien and team highly wedding location...
Madden on Mon, 4th 2017
Langton House Hotel provided an venue for our wedding, I cannot praise Sean Read & his staff enough for their hard work and support in ensuring our special day was such a had an absolute ball and so did our guests. We had our guests meet in Bridies Bar and it was styled as an bar/sweet shop. It was right next door to the Set Theatre where we got married and I have to say it was such intimate modern venue, everyone had a good view. It was beautifully laid out and I cannot speak highly enough of it!
Everyone commented on how nice the food was and how friendly and efficient the staff were. The service was excellent and the attention to detail was second to none. The whole day was flawless. From the day we booked our wedding, they made everything very easy and carefree for us. I never had to think or worry about the so it was a very calm experience for us! The whole day ran without any issue and again this was down to the hard work and dedication of all staff on site. Credit goes to Damien who looked after us on the day, he was a true professional and had all the boxes ticked and was very easy and pleasant to deal with. He is a credit to their business he made us feel completely relaxed both before and after the wedding ceremony and pretty much made it his personal duty to ensure that we all had absolute perfection. Everyone who attended the wedding is still talking about dinner and the food. It was amazing, when served and the service was so quick. We really couldn’t fault anything. The wine was a lovely touch that many commented on as it is very unusual and was a lovely option for a warm day. The additional options for starters were also a great touch. Even the morning staff were still as helpful as ever and had packed almost our decorations for us.
I honestly can’t thank them enough for a wedding experience! I cannot recommend this venue enough!
