Faithlegg Weddings at Faithlegg House Hotel & Golf Club in East Waterford, about 10 minutes drive from Waterford City, has to be on any Bride & Groom's wish list for a wedding venue. It has everything the happy couple could wish for:

A bright & spacious function room known as the Minaun Room in recognition of the hill overlooking the venue:

Spacious gardens to the front and rear to allow guests stretch their legs and capture the happy day:

A luxurious leisure centre offering spa treatments, swimming pool, sauna & jacuzzi:

Both new and old style bedrooms and lots of them as well as dozens of mews houses for those who would like to stay in more traditional surroundings with their family:

An 18 hole championship golf course which has won the Munster Golf venue for the past couple of years:

The Roseville Dining Room which has won too many awards to mention:

A charming bar and lounge with old world charm but still bright and well decorated to make guests feel welcome and pampered:

Lots of walks and guided tours on hand as well as regular events such as falconry and archery.

Living & working just a few hundred yards from Faithlegg House Hotel and having had many family gatherings there over the years where the service and fare has always been of the highest standard, I simply love this venue.

Golf Pro Derry Kiely and his infections enthusiasm is impossible not to warm to and this high level of service is the norm in Faithlegg.

Located about 20 minutes from the centre of Waterford City and overlooking the river Suir with Counties Kilkenny and Wexford bordering, it is nicely tucked away in East County Waterford.

Faithlegg Weddings

Photo opportunities abound at Faithlegg House Hotel and even on days when no one wants to venture out, there are many locations inside which will allow the Bride & Groom and guests have their portraits captured. I have had the pleasure of photographing many weddings here along with the house, clubhouse and course. Character and charm abound and I highly recommending it as your wedding venue.

History

 

As with many great country estates, the history of Faithlegg Estate is a long and colourful one. The area where Faithlegg Church stands was called Coolbunnia. A Castle also stood there which was the seat of the Aylward Family for 500 years. The Aylward family, from Bristol, had been granted the estate (originally covering over 7000 acres of pasturland) by King Henry 11 in 1177 and held it until the armies of Oliver Cromwell dispossessed them during the invasions of 1654.

 

The property was then granted to William Bolton.

 

Over a century later, in 1783, the present house was built by Cornelius Bolton, who had inherited the Estate from his father in 1779. Financial difficulties followed and in 1819 the Bolton Family sold the house to the Power Family. Nicholas Mahon Power married Margaret Mahon and her dowry enabled him to buy Faithlegg House and Estate. The Powers were a wealthy merchant family from Waterford City and they adorned the estate with the stags head and cross, which was the Power family crest. It remains the emblem of the Estate to this day.

 

On the death of Nicholas Power in 1873 his eldest son, Patrick Joseph (Pat) and his wife, Lady Olivia Nugent came to live in the house and commissioned Samuel Roberts to alter and enlarge the family mansion. The Power family also built the nearby Catholic Church on the ground where Faithlegg Castle originally stood. The house passed to Hubert Power, the only son of Pat and Lady Olivia and in 1920 upon Hubert's death, it passed to his daughter, Eily Power.

 

In 1935 Eilyand her husband sold the House to the De La Salle order of teaching Christian Brothers after which it acted as a novitiate until the 1980's.

 

The last remaining gap in history is from the 1980's until 1998 when it was taken over by the FBD Hotel Group.
