Olivia Buckley International

Event Planners Ireland | The Sunday Independent

February 2018 - It was wonderful to be featured in Ergo by Samantha McCaughren, Business Editor for The Sunday Independent, about the growth of Olivia Buckley International and the delights of Ashford Castle.

“High-end events organiser Olivia Buckley usually likes to keep a low profile, but raised her head above the parapet last week to celebrate five years in business. Originally based in Kerry, she opened a second office in Dublin in 2016 to keep up with the growing demand for her services. She organises very fancy weddings, as well as corporate events but, unfortunately, most of her gigs are the subject of strict non-disclosure agreements . So no gossip there. However, testimonials come from the likes of Niall Rochford, general manager of possibly the country’s poshest hotel, Ashford Castle (where the likes of Rory McIlroy and also Pierce Brosnan got married). Rochford heaps praise on Olivia, commenting that “her team are quite simply the best in their field, delivering spectacular, breath-taking weddings and events both here and around the world”. In a reflection of the fact that 80pc of her business is international – with clients based in America, China and Japan – her company has just rebranded as Olivia Buckley International. A high-flyer indeed.”
