Wedding Testimonials

We had a fantastic celebration which wouldn’t have been possible without the exceptional service at Fallon & Byrne. Everyone commented on how amazing the food was. With such a beautiful atmosphere, it made for the perfect urban wedding! Now that we can look back, we wouldn’t change a thing!
Many thanks Ciara, everyone had a fabulous evening and we really appreciated all of your help in the run up to the day too, we couldn’t have done it without you!
Ciara and Natalie, just wanted to pop you a message to sincerely say THANK YOU for hosting our wedding. Ciara, I’m so glad I emailed you just 5 weeks before the wedding to see if you had an opening for us. I remember feeling so nervous not having an actual option for the day — and then you said YES! We had the best time at Fallon and Byrne, from the service, the staff, the set up, the FOOD and the excellence of everything - we really loved it! Please pass on our thank you to everyone involved!
We really had such an amazing time and all the guests couldn't compliment the food enough and loved the venue. My only regret is missing out on trying the cheese cake, it looked so amazing but I timed the kids leaving badly! Thank you so much for all your help with organising the day and being so accommodating with all the postponements. Also big thank you to Natalie who was just brilliant yesterday, looked after us so well and made sure everything ran smoothly!
Natalie everyone mentioned how attentive and amazing you and all the staff were throughout the entire night. All guests said they loved the venue and the food also! Thanks again for everything. We really do appreciate it.
