“We held our wedding reception at Mcgovern Park during the pandemic we were totally blown away by the effort made by Paul to accommodate all the changes necessary to make the venue covid secure and host an absolutely flawless day for us and our guests.
The food was delicious and enjoyed by young and old, the staff went the extra mile to accommodate menu changes during dinner service which was much appreciated.
We were delighted with every aspect of our day and are already looking forward to hosting a wedding celebration for all our extended families and friends next year at Mcgovern post covid.
We would highly recommend Paul, Connor and the team for any upcoming events. “
