Hi Sharon,

I am just about feeling human again after the weekend.

The whole weekend was an absolutely great success and that was all down to you and the various parties you recommended to me along the way. We are all very quick to complain when something goes wrong and slow to praise for a job well done which is why i wanted to share nothing but my positive feedback with you.

Firstly, the penthouse and apartment setup was perfect for what we wanted for both nights. THe penthouse was amazing and totally what i was looking for. Everyone had their own bed and plenty space for all. Everyone commented on how the beds were so comfortable and a good night sleep (even though it was only a few hours) was had by all. All the apartments were in perfect condition when we got there and not a thing out of place – there were nothing but compliments from the whole group.

The Cube Activity in An Poc Fada on the Saturday was great fun. Smiles all round from all involved. I was very impressed with the “host”, unfortunately i cannot remember his name even thought he did tell me. When we arrived he asked who was the contact and asked me a few details on the bride, the groom and wedding day. The group were very impressed when he brought that into the activity at different stages. He was great craic and i felt he engaged with the group so well, felt like he was part of the hen at times! There was nothing but laughter coming from the room for the whole activity.

The staff and bar manager in An Poc Fada were exceptional, when i arrived i opened a tab and explained i wanted to do one round and then close the tab, it was done seemlessly, i also ordered some food to keep us going during the competitive activity and it was brought up bang on time. the bar staff even came up and took drinks orders which meant nobody had to leave the room. I could not fault anything about the activity and the staff in An Poc Fada – Highly recommended.

To the girls in Ruby Reds Hairdressers, we were treated like Queens – a few girls in our group got their hair done (myself included) and the staff were very friendly and made us feel very welcome listing to all the events of the day. We were in and out on time and the hair was done perfectly, once less thing for me to worry about.

Langtons – I don’t know where to start. I was first in the door and was great by a lady with short blonde hair, she called me by my first name, as if she knew who i was. She explained our table was being set so we went to the bar for a cheeky cocktail. She called us to our table, again everything bang on time. When the group walked in and saw the room we were in there were no words to describe how amazing the room looked, so classy and our own section with 2 tables set up, perfectly. Sharon, i am not sure if you booked that room specifically for us but it was incredible, and thank you so much if you did – we always joke on how posh my sister can be and that room summed her up perfectly, i was so impressed and the smile on her face was something else.

We had 2 lovely gentlemen serving us for the night and nothing was a problem for them. I loved that they served the bride first and one several occasions i saw them asking was she OK for everything.

We were allowed to stay in our “private” room until the Club was open. The manager put on music for us and that got us all in the mood to dance the night away. A lovely gesture i thought.

When the club was open the manager came in to let me know we could go in, i gathered up the troops and the bouncers took us to our reserved area – again, the area was just superb with our own bouncer for the night, it meant we were all together and could dance the night away.

Last but by no means least, as i feel they should get a special mention is our 3 friends we made over the weekend… they go by the name of Peter, Tony & John ( i hope i have the name right) – the best taxi drivers in Ireland, and true gentlemen. 10 mins before each pick up they gave me a call to let me know they were on their way and dropped us to our destination. We even got a history lesson while passing Kilkenny Castle and the old stables, it was very interesting. The icing on the cake for me what when i call the number at approx 2.30AM in the early hours of Sunday and i was greeted with a “Hello Claire, are ye ready to be collected?” I was completely in shock and so impressed. And we were ready, i gathered the troops and 5 mins later we were on our way home! The promptness of the taxi drivers and their sense of humor made our weekend, they were always up for a laugh asking us about our day and even opened every door for us – very impressed and everyone complemented the professionalism and friendliness of all the drivers we met – Keep up the good work lads!

Sharon, the final thank you goes to YOU – for all that you did for me running up to the event. every question i had you answered and helped me out when needed. Organizing a hen of that size for me was very daunting but your professional approach put me at ease, you were on the ball and i will be forever grateful for that. I will definitely be recommending anyone who is planning a hen to get in contact with you as it was absolutely fantastic, i cannot complain on any aspect. The organisation, the standard of the accommodation and all the people we met along the way were amazing – WELL DONE to you all.

There was 22 Cork Ladies who left Kilkenny absolutely exhausted but singing your praise for what only can be described as THE BEST WEEKEND.

Please share my feedback to all involved.
Thank you and i hope i get to visit again soon – Kilkenny is a great spot! Claire.

Hi Sharon, I hope you enjoyed the wedding Sat. I just wanted to drop a quick email to say thanks a million for everything over the weekend. The Hen was brilliant and everyone we encountered along the way were a pleasure to deal with. You’re setup is ideal and beyond convenient and you’ve grouped up with a fantastic bunch for the add on options. It was praise all round and two girls have already asked for your details to plan hens.

Kind regards Lisa

Hi Sharon, Just a quick e-mail to thank you for all your help in organising our hen party. We had a great weekend and everything ran smoothly, thanks, in no small part, to you.

Hi Sharon, Thanks for your email. We had an absolute ball for the weekend. Couldn’t of asked for more to be honest. The apartments were perfect and Peter who took care of us with the mini buses could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Even the ladies below in the shop and the hairdressers were so friendly, everybody who we came in contact with were so obliging and it was just all very easy. The only hard part of the whole weekend was being out for 11am on Sunday morning but I can appreciate that you have to clean the place for people coming in. Caught up on my sleep yesterday! Mum made it up for afternoon tea which was great and in flying form. Thanks again for everything and hopefully will see you again in the future.

Kind Regards, Sarah.

Hi Sharon, We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything went well. The taxis were on time and the taxi drivers were very easy to deal with. The breakfast was lovely and worked well in the morning I will definitely be recommending the apartments to my friends who are also planning hen parties and I will consider staying there myself if I am looking for accommodation in Kilkenny. Thank you for your swift replies to my emails and for your help in planning the hen party. Kind Regards, Fiona Ward

Hi Sharon,

Thanks so much for accommodating us at the weekend. We all thoroughly enjoyed the hen party and the accommodation was a big part of it. The rooms were perfect for our group, we stayed in on a wet Friday night and played games which the penthouse was perfect for.

Thanks so much, I’ll definitely recommend Beechview for anybody staying in Kilkenny again.

Best regards,

Hi Sharon,

Thanks so much for everything.

The girls all had a great weekend and were all so impressed with the apartment. It was great to have the flexibility to stay in, or have tea or snacks whenever suited and the space for everyone. The whole setup and itinerary was seamless!!

But overall absolutely brilliant weekend and will definitely recommend to any friends looking for a similar weekend.

Many thanks, Paula

Hi Sharon

We were absolutely delighted with the apartments, so Big and comfortable. The penthouse is better than in the photos and i wasn’t expecting for there to be any en suites let alone so many!!

Spoiled with smash hits, we so weren’t expecting to see them so it definitely added to the fun.

Where would be the Best place to feedback publicly? On the website anyway. Do you have the Apartments on trip advisor?

Kind regards Ciara

Good Morning Sharon,

I just wanted to send an email to say a big THANK YOU for all your help before & during the hen. The apartments were perfect – They were very well laid out & nicely decorated. We couldn’t go wrong with the shop, hair dressers & chemist all beside us. We stayed in on Friday evening & just caught up, so the penthouse was a great size to host it. It was great to have the help with planning the activities, especially organising it from London.

They were both great fun! I think the Mammies nearly had a heart attack at the art class, it wasn’t expected, but there was lots of laughing & giggles. Didi was brilliant & very helpful. The gang in Matt the Millars were mighty too, we had loads of fun with James cocktail making & Sharon looked after us all night. We didn’t leave there all night.

The lads with the taxis were brilliant too – I must send a text to them to say thanks!

Kind Regards, Kathryn
