We just wanted to take a few moments to try to express our appreciation, awe, and sincerest thanks to all the staff at Newbay for our their outstanding service for our wedding. Having met Maria and the team for outdoor dining, we had very high expectations, but they all absolutely blew any expectations we had out of the water.

Maria, you are incredible at your job. You thought of every single touch before we did! You made every moment of organising the wedding so stress free and it meant that we had no worries about anything in the lead up to our day. The staff are incredible. Gordon, Elaine, Shane, Brian, Killian, Sarah, Rachel, Niamh and Aisling, to name but a few, looked after our every need and many guests reported it was the best they have ever been taken care of at a wedding. Paul and his team created the most amazing dishes and people are still texting me about the brill!!!!! Our wedding meal was delicious and beautifully presented. The BBQ was gorgeous and a few people commented that again, it was the best they ever tasted. 

We would love to relive the whole weekend again. 

Thank you so, so much!

What can we say, Newbay is the perfect wedding venue. 

We couldn't have asked for a more amazing day and from what we have heard from our guests, they also agree. 

From the moment we began speaking to Maria we knew we had chosen the best venue. We loved working with Maria from the very first day. Everything went so smoothly because of her and we cannot thank her and the rest of the staff enough for everything they did for us. 

From start to finish we were able to create a wedding day that was perfect for us from the outdoor ceremony, to the drinks reception and of course the amazing food, we couldn't have asked for more.

If you are considering booking Newbay for your wedding, book it, do not hesitate.

We couldn’t say enough about Maria, not only she is such a lovely, kind, caring and helpful person but she knows her stuff!

There was nothing too much to ask and she went out of her way to help us organise and plan our big day! I still miss our regular chats through email/text/phone.

Can’t recommend Newbay or Maria enough!

Maria and Rebecca, Thank you both so much for everything you did for us.

We had the most amazing day from start to finish! You and all the staff at Newbay are a credit to yourselves, and I cannot express the number of compliments we have had since on the staff, the service, the food, the venue - everything!  You both made our journey so easy over the last 2 years and never moved the goal posts despite difficult times! We are so lucky to have found such an amazing venue who literally bent over backwards to ensure we got the day we always wished for. If only we could do it all again!! 

Thanks again and best of luck with everything going forward...don't be surprised if those bookings come in fast and quick :)

We recently had our wedding at the amazing NEWBAY HOUSE! wish I could give it more than 5 stars! From start to finish, Maria and the team made our wedding dreams come true.  Maria is simply amazing at what she does. She was prompt, knowledgeable and beyond helpful. We had a lot of surprises for our guests planned and nothing was too much trouble. She even kept the singing waiters a secret from the staff so full secrecy on the day!! 

We always left our meetings feeling very uplifted and enthusiastic about our big day. After postponing, it was hard to get back into the joy of planning again but Maria’s joy was infectious! The venue is breath-taking. The bridal suite especially was the nicest I had seen from a few other venues. There are only 11 rooms and the house has to be hired for your wedding but it made it all the more intimate as only our nearest and dearest got to stay over, there weren’t tons of strangers at breakfast 😉 and there were plenty of pull out beds offered for extra guests if needed.

The service is spectacular. Our guests said it was the best and the MOST  food they ever had at any wedding! The chefs tailored our menu to our liking and every bit was so tasty especially the desserts…. WOW.. The bartenders made amazing drinks and people rarely had to wait. The day started and ended perfectly. 

We are beyond happy with our experience at Newbay. If you are looking for a wedding venue with a difference look no further … YOU WONT REGRET IT 💕

Our wedding was postponed twice due to covid and the staff at Newbay could not have been more understanding. With each visit we paid them we became happier with our decision to have our wedding in Newbay.  Maria and Paul (the chef) are so accommodating and truly just wanted us to have the day we dreamed of, and that we did. They are so generous with their time and their effort.  Maria went above and beyond what was asked of her and nothing was too much trouble, her attention to detail is amazing! 

The food is the nicest we have ever tasted, so much so that we split the mains on our wedding day to taste both again!! Our only regret is that the day is over and we can't relive it. Our guest all commented on the delicious food, amazing service and beautiful grounds! Thank you so much to all the staff at Newbay, you are all fantastic!!

We got married at Newbay House on 23/12/21. Our whole experience was excellent. 

Our first contact was by email with Maria in early October (10 weeks before our wedding date!). We met with Maria at Newbay and found her to be very friendly, enthusiastic and very interested in helping us have our perfect day. She had loads of suggestions and options to help us but was never pushy. Any ideas we had about different details for our day were easy to discuss with her and she never had any problems or difficulties with any of our ideas. Read more...

It's very difficult to put into words how magical our day was. 

From the moment we met Rebecca & Maria and viewed Newbay, we instantly knew it was perfect for us. We even had a little sign in the form of a tiny white feather that appeared from nowhere as we looked out onto the wishing tree from the ballroom, which we both took as a sign of our grandmother's approvals. I also think I may have shed a tear at that point too (and all that was in the first hour). 

Rebecca and Maria both were incredible throughout the whole process given we only gave ourselves 3 months to organise everything. They made everything so easy, nothing was ever any trouble and most importantly made the day run so smoothly & worry free. The food was also exquisite, we had a hard time trying to narrow down our menu from the dinner tasting as it was all so incredible. All our guests have raved about it ever since. Our thanks to Paul, Noel, Edel & team for preparing such an exceptional menu (and to the front of house staff who were so helpful throughout the whole day/night).   

It truly was the most magical day; better than we both could have imagined or ever dreamed of. Your expertise & professionalism throughout the whole experience was second to none.

We have so many wonderful things to say about Newbay and the team it is hard to know where to start. 

From the very beginning of the process, we were treated with the utmost professionalism and kindness and were made to feel so special. We had moved our wedding from our original location of Florida back to Ireland and were concerned we wouldn't get the same magic but from the second we started the planning with Rebecca we knew we had nothing to worry about.

We had to plan our wedding through constantly changing COVID 19 guidelines, and throughout the whole process, Maria and her team at Newbay went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect in every way, even bad weather on the day made no difference, and the service we received was nothing short of outstanding.

From morning arrival to check out the next day, the professionalism of staff from Maria right through to night porters was fantastic. We can't wait to attend the weddings of some of our friends who have chosen Newbay as their venue after seeing how amazing our day was.

Maria thanks again for all your help, hopefully we'll come across each other very soon again.

We viewed Newbay late December 2019. It was the first and last venue we viewed and this says it all!. The house has been beautifully and thoughtfully restored and the grounds surrounding it are peaceful all the while only being approx. 5 minutes from Wexford town.  It offered everything we wanted: a gorgeous venue and most of all privacy. Having our wedding in Newbay meant that we along with our guests were the only ones present on the grounds during our big day! Read more...

We cannot recommend Newbay House enough for anyone looking for the perfect place to celebrate their special day. The venue is simply stunning, a perfect blend of the historic past of an intimate country house and modern elegance. Coupled with the beautiful garden and grounds, this period house will capture your heart as soon as you set foot inside.

The staff are beyond amazing. Robert, Maria and Rebecca couldn’t have made everything any easier for us in the lead up to our big day, and were there on the day itself also to ensure the day went exactly as planned. All of the wait staff, bar staff and our night porter, Ian, were so friendly and courteous, encapsulating the traditional, friendly hospitality you’d expect from such a venue. Paul and all of the staff in the kitchen really knocked it out of the park when it came to the food. From the drinks reception, to the meal, to the late night snacks, the quality was outstanding, and we loved how they made use of locally sourced produce in the designing of our menu. 

Newbay really was the most wonderful venue for us to celebrate our wedding day. If we were to do it all again, there’s not a thing we would change.

We had a change of heart on our original wedding venue so began searching for a new venue during the height of covid restrictions. We contacted Newbay as we loved their photos online and they straight away were so welcoming and offered us a virtual tour of the venue. We had never done a virtual tour of anywhere but Rebecca made us feel like we were right there in person. You know a place is “the one” when you are so impressed by a virtual tour and not having stepped foot in the place we booked a date and it was the best decision we made, getting married here in October 2021.

We had our wedding in Newbay on the 23rd October and it was a day we will never forget. Just one month before our wedding, we made the big decision to move our reception to Newbay as our original venue were not very accommodating or supportive when the Covid crisis hit. 

Thankfully, the amazing Maria and the Newbay team gave us hope and made our wedding day possible. 

The first time we met Maria, she was extremely sympathetic and understanding of the stressful position we were in trying to plan a wedding during such uncertain times. Maria made everything easy, she took as much of the pre-wedding stress away from us as possible and on the wedding day she made sure our guests had everything they needed and more. 

The venue is absolutely gorgeous and a perfect location for a small, intimate wedding.

The staff are all so lovely and the food out of this world, all thanks to the amazing head chef Paul. 

A sincere thank you to all the Newbay team, we couldn’t have done it without you.
