Padhraic & Emma

Borris House, Co. Carlow

They were absolutely amazing and we honestly couldn’t have asked for more. The country theme went down really well and the dance floor was full all night. Aside from the that, they are really top musicians and absolute professionals. 

I have had so many compliments since and everyone was incredibly impressed. Emma was so delighted with the first dance and we really appreciate them playing our request. 

A huge thank you as well. We were very very late getting back to the room after cutting the cake and more drinks etc. So the band started much later than planned. They were so nice about it and in the end played straight through without a break and were there until around 12.30 I think. That was really so good of them. 

It was a pleasure to deal with you in the lead up Katie and a pleasure to deal with the band on the night. So impressed altogether and we have such a wonderful day/night.

Step House Hotel, Borris, Co. Carlow

The Whole Hog Band are absolutely fantastic! We were lucky to have them play at our wedding at Step House Hotel in Borris. They created a great rapport with the guests and had everyone up dancing for the whole night. The New Zealanders at the wedding were particularly impressed with their Ir ish remix of a Crowded House favourite. It was great to see our friends and family all dancing and enjoying the music. It was lovely to meet the band and we'd highly recommend them for any merry occasion. Thanks a million. Paul and Dee
