Corporate Testimonials

Alison Tait – Musgraves

held Gala Banquet and found Gaol and Caterers extremely helpful and professional and they endeavored to facilitate all our requirements where possible. Feedback from attendees was that it was a wonderful experience, and the setting was absolutely fantastic and we could not have asked for a better location. I would certainly hold another event at the Gaol and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it to others.


Niamh Shanahan – Trasna Communications

everyone absolutely thrilled with the venue and my clients were delighted with the results from the Launch. We really did appreciate your helpfulness and flexibility with the location.


Aileen Burke – Waterford

Mary O’Keeffe – AOIFA (following National Festival of Flowers)
