Uisneach Catering take all the stress out of party or event planning. I have used them at home for family events, and for client’s corporate events – I cannot recommend Aine and her team highly enough. She is a joy to work with, offering a range of well-priced diverse menu options, and a bespoke service if you want something a little bit different! Best catering company I’ve ever used!read more

Where do I start.. Aine and Ger did the catering for our wedding day last week and to say they were amazing is an understatement. From the day I first spoke to Aine she was nothing but helpful. Planning our wedding wasn’t easy but once we had Uisneach catering booked all our worries went away on the catering end of things as Aine and Ger were always there to reassure us. The food was excellent on the day, we are still getting compliments about it! I would highly recommend ❤️read more

Hi Aine and Ger. Happy New Year to you and all the team. Best wishes with reopening of food truck next weekend in Loughnavalley. We really enjoyed the food we got from you there last year- delicious, hot and fresh! In what was an extremely challenging year for the hospitality industry, you adapted your business model and catered for your local community in a unique way. You are local food heroes!read more

Aine, Ger and Team, I cant thank you enough for the fantastic Christmas dinners you supplied recently. The flavours and presentation were fantastic – from the choice of veg and top quality meat to the home made cranberry sauce and gravy, wow! You provided a brilliant service. Thanks to you we had a stress free Christmas and enjoyed wholesome nutritious food. It was such a help to me as I was recovering from a recent operation. Having the dinners supplied took a weight off my mind and I knew my family would be well fed and I could relax and rest easy. The desserts were delicious – I found it very hard to share the scrumptious chocolate roulade!!! Thanks so much for your excellent catering service. We look forward to being in touch again.read more

Aine and the team recently catered for my parent’s anniversary and it was superb. From the moment I called everything fell into place with Aine and her team always being a step ahead of me. Such an absolute pleasure to work with. The food (canapés and mains) was also excellent! I regretted not getting the dessert as well! Would recommend them to anyone.

Aine, Ger and all the staff at Uisneach catering did a phenomenal job catering for our wedding in August 2018. We decided to have our reception on our farm, and having good food was one of our top priorities. Uisneach catering surpassed this expectation and were an absolute joy to work with. They served canapés and a hot dinner (roast sirloin of beef, chicken roulade and a goats cheese tart) for 130 guests in the afternoon and then served a BBQ with salads for 250 people that same evening. There was nothing that was a problem for them, and their professional attitude blew us away. We are still receiving compliments from wedding guests 6 months later about how good the food and service was, and how impressed they were that such good food was served on a farm! Aine and Ger go far beyond the normal level of service to make sure that everything is looked after, and there is no price tag that can buy that type of attention to detail and care (They even cooked black pudding especially for my husband on the BBQ because it is his favourite food – this is the type of people that they are!) They were always at the end of the phone to look after any request or change that we had. On the day, we didn’t have to worry about a thing – they were on hand at all times to make sure everything was running smoothly. Also, every single one of their staff was smiling and very friendly – this is a wonderful reflection on Aine & Ger. We would both, without a doubt, highly recommend Uisneach catering to everyone considering both this type of event and any other event. Thank you Aine, Ger and all the staff at Uisneach!read more

I recently contacted Aine @Uisneach Catering to cater the food for our daughters communion. The food was amazing. Aine was super in responding to any queries I had.

Aine & Hubby thank you for everything – we will definitely be in contact again for the next occasion.read more

Big thank you to Áine and her team at Uisneach Catering for a fabulous meal that they provided to a group of hungry hens at the LakeLodge. The meal arrived hot and ready to go and was accompanied by fresh tasty salads and delicious home made bread rolls. Áine all provided us with homemade brown bread and scones for the next morning which went down a treat. As did the left overs at 3am .. of which there were none the next day! Fantastic service and fabulous meal. Áine you were a pleasure to deal with and I’d highly recommend your service to all in the area. Many thanks, Maeveread more

Hi Aine We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for the magnificent food and service we received for my 21st Birthday yesterday.Everyone thought the food was Michelin star standard. We opted for the beef and Guinness stew with spring onion champ and chicken korma and rice both were very comforting on the autumnal evening. They were both piping hot considering the fact you had to travel over an hour to get here, which was great that you were willing to accommodate us. Everyone got second portions, we had plenty of leftovers for today which was great.The desserts were to die for, we opted for the meringue roulade and apple crumble which was still warm like it was straight from the oven. Everyone gave such high praise for all the food.The service was very professional, we didn’t have to lift a finger, we were all served and taken care of. Ye made sure everyone had enough. The dreaded part (the washing up) was also taken care of as well which was great.The whole food and service was excellent value for money, I don’t think we would have received the intimate service in a restaurant as ye were just focused on us and making it special. We would highly recommend Uisneach catering to anyone looking for a highly attentive service and top class food.read more
