Reunion Dinner - June 2023

Hi Niamh, 

Thank you for your email. Everything went very well! Everyone at the reunion was blown away by The View and the set up. Given it was a lovely evening weather-wise, the balcony was a welcome spot.  The layout, table decorations and bar were all beautifully set up.  

The staff couldn’t have been more helpful. It was very hot inside and staff provided fans to keep the air as cool as possible.

The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Please pass on my grateful thanks to all the staff including the kitchen staff involved....

All in all,  having the reunion at The View in House for an Art Lover, was an absolute triumph.

Thank you so much for your support in making the event a great success.

Best wishes


50th Birthday - June 2023

Morning Niamh,

I would just like to give a massive thanks to you, Vicki and the rest of the staff from Saturday night who were absolutely amazing and made the night so perfect for me.

I had the best time and the venue was just perfect and exactly what I had imagined for my birthday celebrations.

Everyone has commented about how amazing the food was and also the venue.

Thanks again to you (and Lynn) for all your help with the organising of my night, it truly was magical and one I will never forget.

Best wishes

Aileen ❤️

Silver Wedding Anniversary - December 2022

Hi Niamh,

Thanks very much-we were delighted with the way everything worked out on Saturday.  The room and the table set up looked absolutely beautiful and we were very well looked after by the staff on the night.  The food was excellent and the team even coped admirably with a couple of late arrivals. All of our guests were very complimentary about the venue and the food and we had such a lovely time being back at the House for an Art Lover again to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. Thank you for your help in the planning-you came up with a few suggestions that I hadn’t thought of and made sure our event was even more special.

Please pass on our thanks to the team who were there on the night!

Thanks again for all your help with the planning and making our event such a success..

Kind regards

60th Birthday Lunch - November 2021

Hi Kate,

We cannot thank you and everyone involved enough for the great success of my sister’s party.

Everything was superb: the venue, the food, the staff and everyone at the party said how good everything was.

I know that anyone attending would recommend the venue and tell friends how much they enjoyed it.

Many thanks for all your attention. We really appreciated it.

Mary and Rona.
