Wednesday is Wedding Day this February at the County Arms Hotel

19 February 2013

Preparing for the biggest day of your life but don't know where to start? Organising your dream wedding can be a daunting task, but this February you can take advantage of decades of experience from some of Ireland's best wedding experts in the award-winning County Arms Hotel. The wedding experts, who have been working with brides and grooms for over 50 years at this family-run hotel will be on hand every Wednesday evening throughout February, from 6pm to 9pm, to offer advice and ingenious tips for creating the perfect wedding.

Hailed as a shining example of exemplary wedding coordination on a recent episode of RTE's ‘At Your Service', the County Arms Hotel, with over 50 years' experience in hosting weddings, is  inviting couples to come along and meet with wedding planning experts, brothers Barry, Peter and Conor Loughnane to discuss their special day.

Every Wednesday evening throughout February, the Loughnane brothers will be joined by a number of hand-picked wedding experts including florist, Richard Haslam; photographer, Brian Redmond; honeymoon specialist, Trudi O'Leary; and dress designer Geraldine O'Meara-Sheils, who will share their wedding knowledge and offer engaged couples free advice to help them in their planning process. Couples are welcome to attend more than one of the sessions, and at each will have the opportunity to sit down with the hotel's trusted wedding experts and discuss their own wedding plans and ideas in this intimate setting.

Speaking about the upcoming sessions, Conor Loughnane said "At the County Arms, we know how important and personal each couple's wedding day is, and the essential and exacting preparation that goes into making it so special. We're proud to make the whole experience a little easier and more enjoyable, and our upcoming wedding expert evenings aim to do just that. As a family-run hotel, we  enjoy a trust which is only found in a select few Irish family-run hotels; and that trust is great comfort to brides and grooms when their wedding day is approaching."

The County Arms was recently shortlisted as a finalist in not one, but three categories, in the upcoming Weddings Online Awards. The hotel is in the running to be named "Hotel Venue of the Year - Leinster" and "Lakelands Venue of the Year"; while Conor Loughnane has been nominated for "Venue Co-ordinator of the Year". The awards will take place on February 18th in Clontarf Castle in Dublin.

Conor added "As the owner managers of the County Arms Hotel, we take pride in our promise to deliver the wedding of their dreams to each and every couple planning their wedding with us.  Our attention to detail is honed by generations of experience.  We know it's the little things that count and this ensures that every bride and groom can always remain confident that our wedding team will deliver their perfect day."

The Wedding Expert Evenings every Wednesday are free to attend, but couples are advised to pre-book appointments to meet Barry, Conor or Peter. Reserve your place by calling (057) 912 0791 or emailing
