We wer're so pleased with the IAHC! Awesome service, awesome space, awesome energy! Weeks after, we are still hearing from our guests about how much they loved the reception and venue. We are still talking about how thankful we are to have chosen the IAHC!

We had the most wonderful wedding in the Fifth Province at the IAHC. There is a large dining room just across the hall from the pub, and we had the run of the place on a Saturday afternoon. The pub is open to the public at 5:00, but not many people came in and this presented no problem. And in fact it was nice to let the party continue in the pub after we had to vacate the dining room at 7:00 for the next party.

Buffet tables were set up in the hall and the dining room comfortably fit 15 tables (140 guests) plus a band stage and dance floor. The large windows on either side of the wing let in beautiful autumn sunlight. The building is very tastefully decorated without being too ornate. It's a great family environment.

On a Saturday afternoon, the room cost only $450.

There is ample parking in the lot and the place is easy to get to. You bring your own caterer (which I preferred) and buy their beverages. They are very flexible about bar packages; Kevin O'Kennedy, my contact there, really worked with me to keep the liquor prices manageable.

Everyone had a great time and commented on what a beautiful space it was.

My only complaint was that Kevin was at times slow to return phone calls or emails. I almost gave up on the place initially because I couldn't get a call back. Once we signed up, he was really good about returning emails until the very end, when there was some confusion about which kitchens the caterer could use. Both I and my caterer felt that he did not read our emails carefully enough to respond to all of our questions. We had a few nervous moments in the last week.

That said, in the end everything worked out just fine. And in fact, Kevin and his staff were extremely accommodating. I could not have picked a better venue for the reception.

What a gorgeous place, the Erin Room was just renovated in the last year and no one would believe the transformation. There are at least 9 chandeliers, a tray ceiling, an unbelievable wooden bar in the back of the room, a stage for a band, and screens on each side of the stage in order to play a slide show/DVD.

We had the cocktail hour on the first floor which worked out well but we had not thought about people wanting to place their gifts somewhere, right away – (we had the gift table on the 3rd floor where the Erin Room is located) --- the staff made sure all the gifts and cards were brought upstairs.

There is a new bridal room off the stairwell with sinks and stalls a nice retreat.

The staff was phenomenal, they made sure that things went according to plan, I can not say enough --- I would recommend this venue to even the non Irish.
