"Thank you both so much for the most wonderfully catered wedding. It was absolutely fabulous having you guys cater for it. Unsurprisingly, our guests have all been raving about the food. We ourselves still haven't stopped talking about the crab and the gratin potatoes! Many thanks for all your hard work and attention."
Nicky and Eoin, Borris House, September 2016
I consider myself extremely fortunate that Eunice Power and her team were able to cater my vegan wedding for me. It is not an exaggeration to say that her food and her team completely made my event - it would not have been the same without them. Although Eunice had never catered a 100% vegan event before, she threw herself into the challenge with gusto and delivered an outstanding result! Everything, from the canapes to the dinner to the midnight snacks and the overall service was first rate. My guests are still talking about the food! If I ever need a caterer again, I'll look no further than Eunice. A special mention of Grace should be made: Grace ran the floor on the night and she is just fantastic at her job! An extremely valuable part of Eunice's team! Both Eunice and Grace were an absolute pleasure to work with - so professional, friendly and personable. A stellar combination!
Zena Al Nazer, Vegan Wedding in Glengarrif, July 2016
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much indeed for the most amazing day on Friday - everything went off so well you even organised the weather for us. From the champagne reception to our main dinner everything went very smoothly. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Neil and myself did not have to worry about anything as we knew that it was in such good hands with Fiona and Moire who looked after us very well. Please pass on our appreciation to them and their helpers.
Neil & Jillian Willis, King Arthurs Barn, Kilruddery, 5th August 2016
"Living overseas we were a little bit apprehensive about planning our wedding back home in Ireland, but from our first discussions with Eunice these worries were laid to rest. From major decisions to the tiniest detail, Eunice and her team's wealth of knowledge and experience made every step a breeze. The day itself couldn't have gone smoother and our guests are still raving about the food! Highly recommended!"
Matthew Durdin Robertson and Una Corcoran, Huntingdon Castle, April 2016
Thank you to Eunice, Grace, Sinead and all the team for the great service and food at our wedding in Borris House. You made the process of planning the meal and drinks very easy and enjoyable and one of the highlights of the build up to the wedding was the tasting evening in Powersfield House. The day ran very smoothly and we did not have to worry about anything as we knew Eunice, Grace and Mike in Borris House were there to manage everything! Guests with special dietary requirements were well catered for and there was no shortage of food. Everybody very impressed with the canapes and meal - the number of cleared plates we saw was a good sign! We would highly recommend Eunice Power Catering - the service was very professional, ingredients were fresh and the food was excellently prepared!
Avril & John, Borris House, May 2016
Paul and I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for all that you did for us to help us make the day everything we hoped it could be and more. Besides the obvious, your help with booking the band and arranging last-minute button holes you played such a large part in the day and we would have been lost without you on multiple occasions. One bit of advice for the future, the comments from the guests have centred around how incredible both the food and service were, Rather than how glorious the brides were :) tone it down a bit next time :)
Dan and Paul, Borris House, May 2016
Just a quick email to say a huge thank you for doing such a wonderful job for our wedding in Borris House on 7th May. The food was absolutely fantastic and we have had so much positive feedback from our guests about how delicious it all was. We were so impressed with both the quality and the quantity of the food-particularly of the delicious crab starter! I was also so thankful to Grace for providing us with our own plate of canapés! Also, thank you for bringing our gin and whiskey bars to life-I think everyone really enjoyed them and that was definitely helped by how well they were set up and run. Your staff were so professional and the day was so well run it meant we were both able to completely relax and enjoy the day! Many thanks again!
Marie & Jarlath, Borris House, May 2016
Before we head off on honeymoon, we wanted to send a quick email to thank you and your team for providing such amazing food at our wedding and the day after. We don't know where to start! It was a huge talking point at the wedding - from the canapes, to the crab cakes, the main courses, burgers, pulled pork and salads - absolutely everything was perfect. Our guests said they never had such delicious food at a wedding. We were so impressed by the generous portions everyone had and no one wanted for anything. It was far more than Ray and I could have hoped for. Also, just to say you have an amazing team of people working for you. We want to particularly thank Mai- she was brilliant on both days, so friendly and accommodating, she went above and beyond in making sure we were happy with everything. Please pass on our sincere thanks to her - we won't forget all she did for us. And to yourself Eunice - thank you for everything. Booking you and your team for our wedding was the best decision we made.
Nicola and Ray, Borris House Wedding, April 2016
Nearly two weeks after our wedding, and the complements on the food are still coming in! Eunice, Grace and team - where do we begin?! We'll be forever grateful to Borris House for recommending your services, as you truly are the best in the business and were a huge factor in ensuring our wedding day was the best day of our lives! We didn't think it would be possible to be more impressed with the food than we were at the tasting, but we should have known better... we were completely blown away with the quality, taste, volume and service on the day! Countless guests commented on your teams wonderful hospitality and attention to detail on the day too, and finished off with "that was the nicest meal I've ever had!" Particularly our guests with dietary requirements, apparently their meals were spectacular too!
Grace you deserve our sincerest thanks too as you really helped ensure our day ran without a hitch and looked after not just Jeff & I impeccably, but all of our guests! I feel that no amount of words can describe our gratitude or how much we recommend you to any couple planning their special day, but I'll sum up our testimonial with this; the best decision we made while planning our wedding was choosing Eunice Power Catering, you will forever be included in our very happy memories from our magical day!
Julie MacDonald & Jeff Ledwidge, Borris House, 2nd April 2016
We had an amazing day...it exceeded our expectations to be honest. The food was absolutely outstanding, we couldn't have asked for better. Everyone is still talking about the dinner. Grace was an integral part of the smooth running of the day. She was outstanding and I was totally relaxed on the day knowing she was there. Your staff were so attentive too...we were so thrilled so a big thank you to you and all your team for making the day so special for us!
Cathy & Noel, Glengarrif, July 2015
We both can't thank you enough for all your incredible hard work in the run up and on the day itself. Eunice, I'm sorry that we didn't see you it was crazy how quickly the time went. Grace, we were so grateful that you came up with plan B for the drinks reception, thank god I didn't go and buy lots of gazebo's as they would have all blown away! Everyone commented on how amazing the food was and that it was the best food that they had ever had at a wedding. You really made the whole day go so smoothly and we are extremely grateful. Even making sure everyone had a way home! I hope that you will get some referrals as a result.
Rozzie & Rich, Carlow, July 2015
I Wish to thank you and your staff so much for making Andrea and Alan's wedding so wonderful. The food was absolutely delicious, people are still remarking on how amazing it was. The staff were so helpful and pleasant and I particularly want to thank Grace for all her help in making sure everything ran absolutely smoothly. You and your team are true ambassadors for Irish food and hospitality. Many thanks again for making the day perfect.
Eleanor Barry, July 2015
Thank you so much for the most brilliant job last weekend. The number of people who told me it was the best wedding feast they have ever had, is positively embarrassing. Huge thanks also go to Grace who was an oasis of calm throughout the hectic proceedings. She was totally organised when we had to switch the early reception into the house when the wind and rain came at us. Between the two of you it was actually possible for Julia and I to enjoy one of the most important days of our lives. Thank you and all your team for excellence beyond imagination.
John & Julia, Ballybolger, Carlow, July 2015
Thank you so much for everything Eunice. I can't tell you how many guests said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Everything was absolutely perfect, I was so thrilled with the cake table and the china tea cups!! You completely executed my vision, thank you! Your staff, especially Louise, were so brilliant and professional, I cannot praise them highly enough..
Hannah & Michael, Borris House, August 2014
Just wanted to pass on our deepest thanks for everything you did for us on our wedding day. Grace thank you for helping us set up everything and organising all the rearranging for the rainy day plan. It all looked amazing and we were so happy with where everything went and how it all looked. The staff were all so nice and helpful and everything went so smoothly, we just couldn't have been happier. Eunice the food was superb. Everyone was raving about it and it all looked so beautiful. Sorry didn't get to thank you on the day. You were both amazing and made the day so special for us. Thank you for all your flexibility and kindness. If we ever have any event in the future we would hire you both in a heart beat.
Amy & Ben, August 2014
I wanted to thank you so much for the amazing food and service at our wedding. The amount of people raving about the food is unreal!! I devoured mine.... So, so tasty!!! The service as well was incredible. Thanks so so much !!! Can't say enough good stuff about Eunice Power Catering.
Nicola & Colin, Ballinatray, May 2014
Thank you so much for everything. We had a wonderful day and everyone was raving about the food. It was so different from the standard wedding fare and it was brilliant to have had such input, it helped make it a very personal day for us.
Conor & Yvonne, Borris House, May 2014
We want to thank you sincerely for what was some of the best food and service that we have ever experienced. We were completely blown away by everything, the quality and taste of the food, the creativity and attention to detail, the impeccable and intuitive service, the "can do attitude" of every one of your staff. We couldnt have asked for anything more, and we feel that you made the day a complete and total success. People were commenting all night about the food (& volume of it :)), the service, the wine, the general ambience...Grace your name was mentioned about 100 times by people commenting on the fact that you are so notably on top of every single detail, I have never heard so many people talk so freely about the whole experience - they wouldnt shut up about it :) I can't fully put into words how happy we were to have chosen to have you cater and service our wedding. It will be such a happy and lasting memory for us of a day that was so extra special.
Aoife & Adam, Limerick, May 2014
My friends and family are still gushing about the delicious food at our wedding, catered by Eunice Power. We wanted to mix things up a little at our event, so Eunice designed and provided creative and well thought out dishes for us over the course of 3 days. The quality of the locally sourced ingredients was like nothing I have ever experience before or since at a catered event. The presentation demonstrated real class, and attention to the small, finer details. I'm living in hope of receiving an invite to another event that Eunice is catering, it'd be a real treat.
Lavina Conway and Andrew Felton, Ballynatray Estate, 2013
Just a quick email to say how amazing everything was on the day. We were so lucky to have you ! All your staff were so professional. Anne-Marie put me totally at ease when I was getting properly frazzled on the Friday and sorted out high chairs and other things last minute which was just great. Also, Mary and Jim were just so lovely and really made the Sunday special. All of the staff were just great - I don't know how you managed to find such a solid team. Food-wise it couldn't have been more perfect. It all tasted even better than at the food tasting. Everyone talked about how delicious it was and people were genuinely astonished that a marquee kitchen could produce food that tasted so good! Likewise, the food on the Sunday was perfect for the day. We were all so impressed. I can't imagine having had anyone else to do the catering. It absolutely made the day to have you and your team there and it was so great that you took care of everything so that we didn't have to worry about a thing. Thanks a million once again. Will recommend you to everyone I know!
Aine & Mark Bruff, August 2013
One of the reasons we chose to go the outside catering route for our wedding was the knowledge that the food can really bring that extra magic and theatre to the day &: we just couldn't settle on a hotel that could provide that for us; with this is mind we looked at close to every caterer in Ireland to see who was the best fit for our day. There were a few things that stood out for us when looking at what Eunice had to offer; her attention to detail, beautiful presentation, quality of the food & her emphasis on the importance of a good front of house staff team. Not only did she not disappoint but she went above and beyond our (very high!) expectations; from silver stands of heaping share plates decorated with edible flowers and fresh mint right down to the salt and pepper served with tiny wooden spoons - it was all in the details and guests are still talking about how incredible it all was. The staff were also absolute stars, looking back I am so thankful that Grace seemed to appear like magic just when I needed something throughout the day and absolutely nothing phased her - don't underestimate how much this will come into play when bride brain kicks in! I can't recommend Eunice and her team highly enough.
Leona & Andrew Borris House 6th Jul 2013
We were absolutely delighted with Eunice as our choice of caterer for our wedding on the 1st of June 2013. Our wedding had a lot of moving parts as we were doing all of it ourselves however once I met Eunice, I knew we were in safe hands. Eunice was extremely organised from start to finish and helped us to be too as she advised on caterhire, marquee setup and tabling plans making our lives that bit easier in the stressful run-up to the day. The food tasting was amazing - her staff were fabulous in making us feel at home and suitably stuffed leaving Powersfield House that day! The tasting was so good in fact that my brother and I found it really hard to choose a favourite starter - I knew we were onto something great if that was my only issue!! On the day itself, the food was wonderfully tasty and thoughtfully presented. Our guests are still raving about the crab on helvic brown bread and the deliciously tender butterfly lamb on the menu. Eunice also helped us with our vision for a fabulous high-tea style, vintage dessert table which, thanks to Eunice's organisation and flexibility on the day worked an absolute treat! Thank you Eunice for helping to make our day so special - you and your staff were truly brilliant.
Liss Ard Estate, Skibbereen, 1st June 2013
Eunice Power catered for our wedding at our home on the 20th of October 2012. When we initially met Eunice, she wowed us with her enthusiasm and creativity and assured us that she would look after everything, and that she did!! She looked after the cater hire, organised the flower arrangements for the marquee and liaised with our marquee company. On the day itself everything was organised to perfection. We had our 'big day' in our new home and we had it exactly as we wanted it, thanks to Eunice. Nothing was a problem to Eunice and her team. Our guests were absolutely blown away by everything, from the impeccable service to the exquisite food. From the moment our guests arrived they were looked after to the highest standard by the 'amazing' Grace and the rest of Eunice's team. We were able to completely relax on the day itself because we knew that everything was in the safe hands of a true professional. Her attention to detail, both in the lead up to and on the day itself, left us with the peace of mind that our wedding day was going to be handled with perfection and taste, and it really and truly was. We both had the time of our lives and for that we will be eternally grateful to Eunice and her team.
Aodh & Elaine Kennedy, October 2012
"Sometimes when you're organising a wedding you can forget that it's your day. It wasn't until we met with Eunice and Grace that we were reminded that the occasion was about us and our celebration. The tasting session was more akin to private dining. Eunice and Grace helped us craft a seasonal and tasty menu that was personal to us. Where we had ideas they did everything they could to accommodate us and where we hadn't, they were great at filling in the blanks. On the day, the feedback from guests was the food was not just tasty but had personality and the service was impeccable. We couldn't recommend Eunice and her team enough."
Jill Murray at Borris House December 2012
"We couldnt have been happier with everything Eunice did for our wedding. She was very receptive to the type of event we wanted, added wonderful creative flourishes, and made the whole process very straightforward and fun for us. On the day her operation ran like clockwork, the food was incredibly colourful and people are still talking about its taste months later. Grace's militant patrolling of all logistics makes it very easy to be relaxed. We couldn't recommend Eunice and her team enough. Many thanks."
Peter and Maire, Dungarvan 2012
"Eunice and her amazing team were absolutely excellent on our wedding day. After our tasting we knew that the food would be fantastic, her natural approach, fresh ingredients and creativity results in beautifully presented and wonderfully tasty food, the standard of which surprised everyone especially at a large wedding. She served up wonderful Irish crab sharing plates and mouthwatering lamb which are still being mentioned today . What did surprise all of us was the unexpected effort her team went to ensure every detail was perfect especially the amazing Grace!. We had a few glitches in the run up from rain to table plans and marquee disasters! but Grace honestly saved our day. I would recommend Eunice & her team to anyone, my advice is to put your trust in her and you will be as pleasantly surprised and overjoyed as I am!"
Lisa Reddin - at Inisbeg, May 2012
"We contacted Eunice with regard to having her cater for our Daughter's wedding. From the moment I spoke to Eunice I knew I could totally rely on her for her expertise for the food at the wedding. We were invited to her fabulous Home Powersfield House in Dungarvan Co Waterford to sample a few dishes for the big day. Everything we sampled was just so delicious it was hard to choose but we did and we made very good choices with Eunice's help
After that I just left everything to do with the catering for the 2 days in Eunice's hands which is unusual for me as I find it hard not to involve myself! We were totally confident all would be perfect which it was on both days. We had so many compliments about the food which is not always the case at weddings so a big thank you to Eunice Anne Marie and their team for making Saranna and Fergal's wedding the special 2 days that they were, without you and your delicious food I don't think it would have been as memorable a day for all of us.
Robert & Sheenagh Enraght-Moony, Dublin at Lisnavagh
"Eunice Power catered our wedding in Castle Oliver on 5 May 2012. We live to eat, so great food at our wedding was our number one priority (well, perhaps after saying "I do"!). To describe the presentation and quality (and indeed value) of the food served on the day as excellent would be an understatement. Eunice's creativity, enthusiasm and excitement about food added a whole new dimension to our menu and enabled us to have and enjoy all our favourite foods, whilst making the most of seasonal produce and flavours. We expected planning our wedding in a self-catering venue to add extra stress - instead, with Eunice's guidance, it added extra excitement and fun.
Grace and her perfect service - we have thought long and hard about how best to fairly describe Grace, but no words seem to adequately flatter her professionalism, organisation, thoughtfulness and incredible ability. She's one in a million. When we look back on our big day in years to come, no doubt the fabulous food will remain a very strong memory (and if our memory gets poor in later years, the photos of empty plates and satisfied faces at each of the tables will surely remind us). We will be forever greatful to Eunice, Grace and the rest of the team for these great memories.
"Eunice catered our Paddy's Day wedding this year at the beautiful Castle Oliver and was exceptional. Absolutely everything she did was sublime and meticulously organised for the three days. The venue was self catering and I was completely overwhelmed with organising the breakfasts, the family meal the night before, the wedding meal, the night after, all from very limited catering facilities! and as an avid foodie, all our guests had huge expectations. I had spent alot of time sourcing the perfect caterer until a colleague suggested Eunice who swooped in with lots of different delicious options, and all to a very reasonable budget.
Personally, our favourite thing was Eunice's flexibility, enthusiasm and creativity, she let us suggest recipes (which she tested and tweaked to work on the day) served Irish coffees, served the midnight feast much later than most places as we wanted them at the end of the night, made shamrock shaped sandwiches and cookies for Paddy's day.... the list goes on, she even convinced me that it wasnt a good idea for the bride to do the cake (a three tiered cake of different flavours) which was quite honestly the yummiest we've ever had (thank god she convinced us otherwise). She really does go above and beyond, even the jugs of water on the table had berries and mint and ice. Literally every single thing is done to perfection like nowhere else, which leads me on to the service.
Grace is one of the most skilled, organised and professional people I have ever come across. She took care of everybody in the room on the day and took care of all the stress heads (bride and family) the day before radiating her calm influence. She also had loads of great ideas beforehand for decorating the table and menu/placecard styles resulting in the room looking absolutely beautiful.
Lastly, Eunice and Grace are genuinely lovely people and if you're planning a wedding/big event etc, they're the perfect team to be involved and I wouldn't waste any time looking elsewhere. Everybody is still raving about the food at our wedding and will be for years to come.
Emma & Damien, March 2012
"Eunice Power catered for our wedding on the 16th of June, 2012 and for a lunch the next day. There were around 180 guests on each day. From the moment we contacted Eunice we knew we were in good hands!! Eunice is an organised, talented caterer who was a joy to work with. As well as having a seriously impressive menu to choose from, she was full of great tips for the day - she helped us make some decisions on which marquee to go for, the decorations, even ideas for bands. Once we had chosen from her imaginative and mouth-watering menu we were told "Leave the rest to me." With Eunice, her right hand woman Grace (who could run a small country) and the team on the case we were able to focus on other things. At no point did we have to worry about the catering, table set up and staffing. It all ran seamlessly. The food was simply delicious, 10/10... handmade chutneys, duck terrine, crab brulee, Asian pork belly, succulent legs of lamb, freshly baked bread and only locally sourced seasonal produce - people have been raving about the food ever since. I only wish I had been hungrier on the day!!"
Jenny Berridge, Wexford
"We were in trepidation of having our daughter's wedding at home. So many things could go wrong,was it not easier to just go and book a hotel.?? At least then we would have someone else to take the blame if it all went pear shaped. But one 30 minute meeting with Eunice changed all that. We simply outlined what our plans were for the menu and the marquee and Eunice said "No problem, leave that to me, you go off and worry about the things you have to worry about and forget my end of things" Tables, Chairs, Crockery, Cuttlery, Glasses, Cookers, Fridges you name it, Eunice organised it. Eunice was even able to advise our electrician the power output she required from the generator for the cookers, fridges etc. On the day of the wedding the military precision with which Grace and her team carried out their duties was fantastic. Even if we are a little biased, we have no doubt it was one of the best meals we have ever had and that includes many top restaurants as well. We went to Eunice simply to do the food. But "The Powerfield Experience" is a great deal more than that. Once you tell Eunice what you want, you simply turn up on the day and be a guest at your own function."
Tom & Caroline, 2011
"Eunice catered for our wedding on the 18th of August 2011. From the moment we saw the website and then spoke with Eunice on the phone we knew she was the person to do the job. Eunice and her team were so professional yet friendly and totally did everything that was promised and expected and more! Grace was fantastic looking after the children and any guests with special requirements with ease and professionalism. I cannot praise them enough. The menu was tailored to suit three different cultures as our guests were travelling from abroad and everyone was so impressed with the food.... the gaspazcho is amazing!! I have been raving and highly recommending Eunice to all I know since our wedding celebration.. Thanks again Eunice, Grace and the team.. you made the day for us... grazie mille."
Gill, Sandro, Elia & Jasper !!
"Eunice has just done the catering for our daughter's wedding and she was superb. She is highly efficient and very professional with amazing energy and enthusiasm. From the day I met her I knew she would produce something very special for Tabby and Barry's wedding at Borris House and indeed she did. It was a feast with a big WOW factor and every thank you letter we have had has raved about her food most saying they had never tasted such exciting food at a wedding! Her team, led by the extremely efficient Grace, are outstanding - like Eunice very professional. I cannot speak highly enough of Eunice. She was a joy to deal with."
Colin and Sally Keane, 2011
"Eunice Power catered for my daughter's wedding in October 2007. We sat down 250 guests, we had three courses of the most delicious food. Her staff were absolutely excellent and the service was of an extremely high standard. I highly recommend Eunice for any function, she is very professional in her approach and consequently a pleasure to deal with."
Julia Keane, Cappoquin, Co. Waterford.
"We couldn't verbalise what we wanted but we knew that we wanted our wedding to reflect the truth in both of us. Amazingly, after just one consultation Eunice was able to come up with a plan that met all of our dreams, and the celebration of our marriage exceeded our expectations."
Ger and Joe, Tipperary
"Eunice Power has handled the catering for numerous weddings and events in all shapes and sizes at Ballyvolane House over the past number of years. Eunice not only cooks beautifully, she is brilliant to deal with, highly professional, calm and has the best sense of humour in the business. I could not recommend Eunice more highly and will continue to work with her in the future. She is a gem!"
Justin Greene, Ballyvolane House, Co. Cork
"We want to thank you sincerely for all of your hard work in helping to make our wedding day so special. It is difficult to express how pleased we are with the wonderful effort you, Grace and the rest of your team made to ensure our big day was a success. Not just for the fabulous menu, the delicious food, the professional service, but for all of the other things that many of our guests won't have seen or known...your attention to detail, your support and unflappable calmness, your patience, your class and style and of course for the brilliant organisation that helped to keep us calm throughout! Nothing was too much or unachievable. Thank you, the day would not have been the same without you.
Sean and Gillian, Lismore Castle
"We have used Eunice Power for our two daughters' weddings and various parties and functions over the last five years. The food and service has always been excellent. We can vouch for Honesty, reliability, innovative and sensible menu suggestions, excellent quality local food suppliers all at reasonable cost. But not least the excellent team of staff she has built up who are both efficient and helpful at all times [very essential at stressful times!].
John and Sally P. Maxwell, Moore Hill, Tallow, Co Waterford
"We could not find the words to accurately describe the contribution you made to our wedding day - you literally "made" our day. Your whole team not only provided the delicious food, you provided a professional service while being relaxed and friendly, which meant we could just sit back, relax and enjoy the day as much as our guests did. I think very few brides and grooms can say that, so thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
Carol and Paul
