Alison Gaffney

Our wedding took place in Finnstown Country House Lucan – bride Alison Mc Guire, Groom Alan Gaffney. I thought the star DJ service was excellent – John showed up well before his time & promptly set up. The music he played had the floor full all nite – even if he did play a few tunes we asked him not to but for the kids!! I would fully recommend this service to others!

Eoin Brennan and Kiera Nolan

Darragh really helped make the day, he had an excellent DJ Voice !!! He was very obliging and looked after OUR needs rather than what our guests wanted. From his inital contact to the end of the night Darragh was very profesional and did his part to make our wedding day extremly memorable.

Denise and Ray

Just want to say thanks a million for playing a blinder at our wedding in Barberstown Castle everyone said the music was perfect and that’s why you had the dance floor packed all night,just back from honeymoon and wanted to say cheers mate you made our day very special. lots of love.

Bob and Sue

On the night the music was fantastic. We started with an 8 piece band and the transition to Garvan’s set was seamless, and the music he included complimented the band perfectly. Full dance floor all night! In the run up to the night Garvan had great advice for us and it was probably the apsect of the day that we worried about least. By agreement, Garvan made sure we got involved in as little (if any) of the minutae as possible and as the day drew closer, it was a pleasant change to not be asked to make yet another last-minute decision on something. Great service, professionally delivered, and we wish you lots of continued success

Nikki Reamonn

Colin was DJ for my wedding and I am delighted to report that the dance floor was full all night. He stuck close to my play list and read the night very well! The limbo dancing set went down a treat!! Colin is a professional and a very nice chap to deal with. I would have no hesitation in recommending Star DJ’s

Stephanie Birch and Martin Chapman

We had Mark as our DJ and he was excellent. I have updated a feedback post to and sang his praises. Our floor was full all night and he knew exactly how to keep everyone up and dancing. It was a very enjoyable evening. Please pass on our thanks again….

Simon and Niamh

Colin was great, fantastic set, everyone loved the music. Your on the night recommendations about lighting etc also were top notch.

Graham Whelan and Gillian Kinane

We were delighted with the DJ Richard on the night of our wedding – he arrived the night before to set up his sound equipment, liaised with the band as the DJ was playing the first dance and then handing over to the band, and played all the songs we had discussed with him before the event. One of our guests brought down a particular song on a CD on the night and the DJ played it to. We have recommended Star DJs to some of our friends who are getting married.

Ian Power

Our D.J. the night of the wedding was superb. Set up in no time and the transition from our wedding band to our D.J. was seamless. Music choice was great too and we had an incredible night. DJ guy was amazing. A really decent bloke and total professional, he went above and beyond the call of duty and had every person in the place up dancing (which he lead himself). By the time he finished, the whole room was out of their seats (parents included) and the party went on into the early hours of the morning, at which point our Polish barman, with a dazed look on his face said it was ‘absolutely best party he ever saw in this room’! Seriously though, we had an amazing weekend and want to thank you guys for a brilliant job excellently done.

Derval Walsh

Mark was our DJ and he played an absolute blinder. His judgement of the crowd was spot on, and he pitched the music accordingly. In the run up to the event, he was contactable and responsive, and he made a real effort to accommodate us, particularly in relation to certain song choices which meant a lot to us. All in all, a stellar performance

Brian & Louise Gilna

I would just like to say how happy we were with star dj’s for our recent wedding. Everyone was dancing for the whole night and had sore feet the next day!!!Keep up the good work. Brian & Louise Gilna, Mount Wolseley Hotel & Country club.

Paul + Catherine

Myself and Catherine were extremely happy with your DJ entertainment service in the run up to, and on the night itself and we will have no hesitation in future in recommending your company to our friends. Thanks for a great night.

Michaela and Diarmuid

We want to ‘Thank you so much’ for such a fantastic job. Everyone loved it. I have to say, I was anxious about how it would work out on the day with such a small crowd but you played a blinder. The dance routines went down so well with young and old. Everyone commented and still comments on how fantastic you were.

Natasha and Alexander Afonin

Myself and my husband Alexander would like to say a very Big Thank you to one of your DJs, who played at our wedding. His name is Garvan Rigby. He did a fantastic job on the day, was very flexible at accommodating all the sudden changes, was very attentive and well organised. He has such a lovely personality and is definitely enjoying his work. He gave us a lot of useful advice before our big day and all the guests really enjoyed the evening.

Fergus & Belinda

Very very impressed with the service. The D.J was very helpful in the run up to the event. On the night itself, he made a big difference by getting everyone onto the dance floor and keeping them there for the night, through good interaction with the crowd and great music. Can honestly say the night wouldn’t have been half the craic without the DJ that we had.

Susan and Carl

We got married at the waterside in Donabate,we chose to go for a dj only as we had dancers and fireworks for later on in the evening. Colin was our dj and he was only brilliant, we met him at the wedding fair the year of our wedding and discussed our plans, we asked for him to dj our wedding as we were really impressed, he knew his stuff, also as a young couple we found he knew what we wanted before we asked. Before the wedding he rang once or twice and confirmed everything and was very reassuring.on the night he looked smart, was punctual, and just got on with things i never needed to remind him of a thing all night,a lot of friends commented on how good he was and asked for details for their own weddings. I would have no problem recommending star djs because as far as the wedding djs we have seen previous there is no comparison!
thanks for making our night.

Colm & Gill Kelly

We had a fantastic day and that was helped ago by the excellent service we received from Star DJ – Darragh O’Dea our DJ gave us a brilliant service we would highly recommend the services of Star DJ to anyone looking for a DJ.The company is a pleasure to deal with from enquiry right up to the delivery of the service.There is so much to do for a wedding but an essential ingredient is to get the music right and keep your guests dancing and Star DJ will delivery on that. Many thanks to all the staff at Star DJ that helped along the way to make our wedding a very special and memorable event for us.

Billy & Anne Marie – Wedding in the Oriel House

It was very late when we contacted you originally but everything was arranged perfectly. DJ was brilliant on the night; he introduced himself to both of us and let us know if there were any special requests or anything we were not happy with to give him a shout. Music was excellent which you could tell by the amount of people who stayed on until the end of the night. Definitely recommend Star DJ’s and will hopefully use ye for some other function in the not to distant future.

Ailish O’ Brien and Kevin Browne.

I would like to say that myself and Kevin were absolutely thrilled with the service provided by star dj’s. He was a pleasure to deal with both in the lead up to the wedding and on that night. He was extremely helpful and courteous. I can honestly say that I have never been to an occasion where I have been happier with a dj and many people have made the same comment to myself and Kevin. His music choice was excellent and he kept the crowd lively. I will definitely be recommending star djs to anyone I know that has an event coming up.

Emer & Liam

I would like to say thank you on behalf of myself and my husband to Star DJs and especially Darragh. From the very start when i was looking at DJs i found Star DJs so nice to deal with and very helpful. We went with a DJ for the full day in the Waterside Hotel Donabate and i have to say im so glad i did. Darragh was fantastic and everyone said how good he was. He was so helpful in the months and weeks before the wedding and even days before. He played all the songs i put on my list and i have to say the dance floor was full all night long. We have had people come up to us since raving about the DJ and the fact that the dance floor was full all night. I will definitely be recommending star DJs to all my friends and family. So thanks a million to Darragh for helping to make our day so special and memorable.

Mary and John (Reilly +L’Estrange)

From myself and my new wife, Mary, I want to extend a huge thank you for making our day so special. We had a very good feeling about him from the first time we met. He filled us full of confidence that he would look after everything regarding entertainment on the night and he really lived up to his promise. From the moment he started, he was in full controll of everything. He went above and beyond the ordinary d.j. and became an entertainer. The dance floor wasn’t empty once, and the moment he saw the crowd flagging a bit, he’d change tack immediately and get a whole new vibe going. Everyone we’ve spoken to have commented on a few things, the venue (Cabra Castle), some of the speeches, the weather and EVERYONE commented on what a good DJ we had. Many asked where we got him, so I’m sure you can expect a few referrals. Once more, I want to thank you all in Star DJ’s .

Wendy + Nicholas

Just a note to thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job as DJ at our wedding in Dromoland. I have had so many comments regarding how great the music was. Our guests loved it. You understood the mood of the crowd perfectly and chose the music accordingly. The dance floor was literally packed all night long. You were courteous and a true professional from the very beginning. I would never hesitate to recommend you and your company to any of my friends.

Denise and Warren

I was really pleased with how the music worked out and the feedback from the guests was really good. As you will have seen from my feedback I was happy – but I wanted to make a point about Mal. Mal was a great DJ. It was great to meet him before hand to discuss the few little different things that I was interested in doing at the wedding. We had a few phone conversations to confirm and agree the first dance which required extra input on Mals behalf.
He was a crowd pleaser and varied the music as he saw fit to keep them dancing. They were happy and so were we! The volume was perfect people could chat – and the lights and equipment really gave the room a different feel for the evening dancing. Thanks for everything. I would recommend Mal as he was very professional.

Sue & Mick

Darragh was our wedding DJ. We have nothing but praise for him. Darragh met us at our home about 1 month before the wedding and we went through what music we like. We didn’t want conventional ‘wedding’ music. We felt very confident after this meeting that Darragh understood what we wanted. Our dance floor was hopping for the night and our guests have commented on the music. I have recommended him to other brides on (which is where he was recommended to me by another bride).We couldn’t have asked for better.

Emmet and Emma

Just to say thanks for performing at our wedding. You were excellent and we have had nothing but good reports about the music and it was fairly obvious as the floor was packed for your entire set.

Andy and Mags

Both Margaret and I would totally recommend Daragh as a DJ. His range of songs were exactly what we requried and were suitable for everyone there. Everyone of our guests said the Dj did a great job, his interaction with our guests etc was brilliant. Thanks Daragh for making the night memorable!!

Sarah & Brian

Just a quick email to say “Thank you” again for doing such an amazing job at our wedding in the Radisson in Cavan. We just had the best day and the music totally made it for us I don’t think the dance floor was ever empty and that is exactly what we wanted.

Lauretta & Stuey

well i can safely say you made my night! it may not have been the most traditional wedding in terms of music, however it was the music i wanted and the music i danced to when i first met stuart, we grew up with that music and it really took us back. i loved every minute of it, even people who wouldnt like dance music where up on the floor. you really really made the night, everyone has said it was the best wedding they have ever been at and that i was such a happy bride the whole night up on the dance floor.
it is one wedding that will be talked about – in a good way!! – for years to come
i thank you very much for doing the gig, we havent stopped talking about it, and you will certainly be our 1st port of call for us in the future for any parties we might have!!!!!!
thanks again, you really were fantastic!

Mr. & Mrs. Skelly

Dear Garvan
Thanks a mil for doing such a great job at our wedding. we had a great night and the music was great. I don’t think the dance floor was ever empty!!

Jill Lawson

From my first phonecall (very very friendly & helpful) through to the night of the wedding, the service was top class. Your DJ tried to call me a few times, he was very friendly. 100% satisfied with everything – tell him thanks!

Annette Kierans

I am delighted to send this email to say that Garvan was a fantastic dj at our wedding.
I met with him in advance and we discussed what we needed on the night. Garvan gave us great advice and was very professional and knowledgeable.
It did take the crowd a while to warm up which is probably true of all weddings esp after a 4 course meal. It certainly had nothing to do with the music. But if a song wasn’t working Garvan changed it and got everyone up. Everyone commented on the entertainment saying it was a great night with a great mix of music to suit all guests and I agree completely. We were delighted that we decided to go with Star DJ’s and I will recommend them to friends and family for their events. I barely had time to drink on the night of my wedding as I was on the dance floor so much and that’s exactly the way I wanted it.

Sandra Kelly – (Wedding Planner)

Hi Garvan
Thank you so much for Saturday, as always you were great and almost everyone, myself included, had blisters on their feet the following morning … which is always a good sign :-)!! Most importantly, Emma was delighted. She had a wonderful day and was very happy with everything. I am sure she will contact you on her return from Honeymoon but I just wanted to say a personal thank you!

Ase & Jan Willem Blum

Where do I start…….??? YOU WERE GREAT!!!!
The Music was great to start with, you kept the crowd going, you really “managed” the whole evening, everything went so smooth and we didn’t have to worry about a single thing! From dinner to cake cutting to Irish dancers to first dance right up to the last dance everything was PERFECT!!! Big big big Thanks to you!!!
If we ever throw a party in Ireland again we’ll defenitely contact you!
Thanks again for everything!!!

Leah Guihen

I would like to highly recommend Star DJ’s for any event you may have.
DJ was punctual, professional, and flexible. He was more than willing to continue tailoring to our needs even after the event commenced. This flexibility helped all too thoroughly enjoy the evening.

Tim & Elaine Vickers

My new wife and I (!!) have just returned from our honeymoon and I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how absolutely brilliant Darragh O’ Dea was at our weddingat the Westin Hotel, and to send a huge thank you to him and all the team at Star DJ’s foir helping make our night so special.
The music and the wedding was always a big concern for us. It was a huge help andextremely reassuring to know that we had someone that clearly knew what he was doing and really seemed to care that the music would be right for us.
As expected , the music on the night was perfect. The dance floor was full all nightand everyone absulutely loved it.
The service you and Darragh provided right from the booking untill the end of the night was simply excellent, and we would certainly not hesitate in recommending Star DJs for anyone planning a wedding.

Ciara Doyle

DJ was absolutely brilliant and would highly rate him. He got lots of compliments from our guests post the wedding. Eeveryone was up dancing all night!!

Nikki and Paul

just wanted to drop you a quick mail to say thanks for a brilliant job at our wedding in Rosedale House – you managed to keep everybody happy which was no easy task! We’ll definitely recommend you to anybody who asks…

Killian & Fionnuala Barrins

We got married this year and were delighted with the service and performance of our DJ, Malcolm. He was uber professional, and patient as he had to wait a for the band who had decided to play on for an extra hour or so. However, the thing that I would like to comment on the most was the fact that he had the dance floor filled for the entire time he played, making the evening truly memorable. All the comments we’ve had subsequently have been nothing but very positive.
Key to his excellence was taking the time to speak to me a few days prior in order to get a feel for the music we wanted and when. To be honest, our band were amazing and I was a little concerned that our DJ would not be able to lift our guests after the band had finished. I need not have worried, as Malcolm was superb. I would be very quick to recommend Malcolm again if anyone was looking for a DJ for their wedding.
Please pass this feedback along with our thanks on to Malcolm.


Hi Al,
Just wanted to drop you an email and say thanks for doing such a good job with the music. You were a true professional. We had a great time.

Mary & Dave

Just a quick line to say thank you very much for being our DJ at our wedding last month in moyvalley, everyone had a great night and we appreciate everything you done to make it a memorable occasion.

Rachael & Jodi

Hi Al,
Just a quick mail to say a big thank you for last Friday. The music was great and everyone had a ball.

Aedín Morkan and Pádraic Doyle

Hi Garvan,
Fergal Rigby dj’d our wedding on 25 September last. We only arrived back from honeymoon last Friday and you guys were on my list of thank you’s but I just hadn’t gotten around to it until I saw your mail.
Both Padraic and I were absolutely delighted with Fergal – I danced almost the entire night and at one point thought to myself I should really be talking to more of our guests but the music was so good that every time I’d sit down to talk I was back up again because I’d hear some really good music! So many people asked us where we had sourced the dj from and commented on how good the music was. I suppose it’s one of those things you fear coming up to a wedding that you’ll have an empty dancefloor – well my fears were completely unfounded; I just feared at times for Fergal’s equipment such was the exuberance on the dancefloor!
The standard of service from Star DJ’s was also excellent right from our very initial contact. When I was researching dj options I dropped you an email and you gave me a call to discuss our options further. At the time I wasn’t sure whether you were just a very good salesman but I have to say both you and Fergal really delivered on what you promised. The music was completely tailored to the style of our wedding and to the age groups there which is why it worked so well I think. It was great that Fergal called in to us a few weeks before the wedding – so much better than discussing over the phone – and true to his word he gave me a quick call a few days before the wedding just to check in. This is exactly the kind of service you need in the run up to a wedding.

I honestly couldn’t recommend Star DJ’s and Fergal highly enough. I wish you every success and will definitely refer you to anyone I know searching for a dj.
Best regards,

Grainne and Ultan (Kelly)

we were totally happy with the service and Colin the Dj!! Thanks for a great bop at our wedding (Trim Castle)


Lorcan and Jeanette Byrne

Hi Star,
Just wanted to say thanks for everything that Mark did for our wedding, he was brilliant and really helped to make the night a huge success always managing to keep the dance floor full of people, not an easy job considering the youngest guest was 8 and the oldest about 85. Couldn’t have asked more from him, he went above and beyond.


Just wanted to say that my wife and I were very happy with our DJ (Tim Harrington) for our wedding in Castlemartyr Resort. He was professional but also relaxed and friendly to deal with and more importantly he really got the crowd dancing. We would have no hesitation in recommending Star DJs and Tim Harrington to any friends or family who are looking for a DJ for any type of event.
Many thanks

Orla & David

Darragh DJ’d at our wedding at cloghan castle and we cant speak highly enough of him. The dance floor was packed from beginning to end – if anything we needed a bigger dancfloor as it wall packed to the brim! Everyone commented on how great a night it was and the music was a huge part of that – the songs we requested for friends were all played so everyone was happy, and it was a huge relief to take a look at the dancefloor and see that everyone was having a ball. The music played throughout the meal was equally enjoyable and set a really nice ambiance, and Darragh was a great MC too – took great control over our boistrous crowd and made sure they gave us a rapturous applause for our entrance, the speeches and the first dance.
All in all it was a brilliant night thanks to Darragh and we’re hughly grateful!


We were extremely happy with Mal the dj for our wedding. He called to our house over Christmas to find out what music we wanted etc and played everything we asked and more on the night and rang in the new year for us also. I (the bride) never moved from the dance floor the whole night that’s how happy I was with everything!

Matt Boland

Hi Garvan,
We were very happy with your brilliant performance. Everyone commented that day after about how amazing, brilliant, fabulous the DJ was.
You really made the night for us and I dont think there was even a minute that there wasn’t someone dancing on the dance floor.
I will recommend Star DJ to all my friends and family.
Thanks again for a brill night. 

Thanks Sacha

We were really pleased with the overall experience. Al was our DJ. He phoned a few weeks before the wedding and asked that we put together a list of our ‘likes’ and ‘dislikes’. Al played a lot of the songs on our ‘like’ list, whilst also taking requests from the guests and playing some floor fillers (which he also asked if we were ok with him doing). So many people commented on how good Al was and we found him lovely to deal with. We would recommend Star Ds to anyone getting married and have just voted your company as Best DJs on the Weddings Online Awards survey.

Greg and Joyce

Dear Sir/Madam
We are delighted with your DJ services at our wedding reception in Finnstown House.
Our DJ Al Redmond’s performance as MC was without reproach. His timing was perfect to the second, even with some of our awkward special requests. Al’s selection of music was well chosen and diverse enough to satisfy the mixed group of guests.
I was particularly impressed with the pre wedding communications e-mails etc. This allowed us to tailor our requests for our special day and reassured us that the musical arrangements were in good hands. We would have no hesitation in recommending Al to friends for future events.

Katy Rowe

The service from Star DJ’s from my initial enquiry, right through to the day of the event was excellent! The quality of the DJ and music has such a big effect on your guests’ perception of the event, and with Star DJ that is one thing you can relax about! Mark (our DJ) really managed to get the party going and having requested a few songs, put together a play list that really suited the crowd! Great service, great music and great value for money! I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Star DJ to anyone and everyone! Thanks again!

Sallyann and Robbie

Hi, Garvan,
just back from honeymoon and wanted to say a massive Thank You for the best wedding night, everyone was talking about how brilliant the music was. Usually it is hard to get people onto the dance floor but in our case it was hard to try and get them off it !!!!! I really cannot thank you enough. Talk soon,

Shauna Casey (formerly Murphy)

Hi there,
I would be happy to give my feedback on the service leading up to and on the day of our wedding itself. In a nutshell I was very impressed with the service of Star DJ’s and wouldnt hesitate to recommend them to any friends of ours getting married in the near future and have done so already. We had Colm as our DJ who was extremely friendly and professional to deal with and with the music being such a huge part of our wedding that we wanted to get right we were delighted to see the dancefloor heaving all night!
Thanks again for everything.
Best regards,

Niamh & Kieran

Hi there,
Just a note to say thanks a million to Mark for being our dj at our wedding. He was brilliant! He didn’t have a lot of time due to our band running overtime but he managed to fit in almost all of the songs that we had requested beforehand, and had the dancefloor full the whole time!
Thanks again,


Hi Fergal,
Thanks for being so proactive on the night- was very happy with DJ set and your willingness to accomadate.

Julie & Jamie

Dear Owen,
This is a very belated but a huge thank you for organising Darragh O’Dea to be the DJ at our wedding in Ballymagarvey Village. Once the band finished up Darragh took over immediately and was super. The dance floor was packed for the entire night and every single request he was asked to play he did, which pretty much impressed every single guest!
We’ve had terrific feedback from everyone re the music and that was entirely down to him. He also had a great manner and told me not to worry when I never got round to putting any kind of play list together. I think all I said was Take That and A-ha and thankfully he kept everyone happy not just me!!
Please pass on our VERY belated thanks to him!


Tom Farrell here. I used star djs this year in clontarf castle. We had will as the dj, sound guy, set up early so we had music throughout the early evening too – which was a big plus, catered to all needs, very pleasant to all the guests and actually played a good set, unlike other djs iv used before. Would recommend again.
Many thanks

Jon Gill

A big thank you to Garvan for doing an amazing job at our wedding.
The StarDJ service was first class right from my initial email contact, through to meeting with Garv to plan the playlist. The straight forward, no nonsense approach was appreciated especially as we were planning an Irish wedding based in the UK.
I’d like to think we had suggested some decent tunes but the way that Garv put them together ensured that the dance floor was rammed all night. Comments like ” the music was just BRILL-I-ANT” and ” I just danced the legs off me” from our guests tells us that everyone had a fantastic night.
We would not hesitate to recommend. In fact we already have!
As you say in Ireland, thanks a million!

Robert & Davina

being a mature couple we had preconcieved ideas about what music we wanted to hear and we were also a bit worried about using a dj as opposed to a live band. the live being way out of our budget we had to use the dj. having heard star djs at a wedding a few year earlier we were happy enough though still nervous as to how it would be received. we need not have worried, our choice of music was played throughout the evening and to our amazement the danceflor was never unoccupied. the comments we got from family and friends about the music thrilled us. so all we can say is, we are delighted we didnt use a live band. our thanks to all at star djs.


Hi Star Djs
Garvan was really fantastic, both in the run up to the wedding and on the night itself. Couldn’t have asked for better.


Marie Beatrice Pissochet

To Fergal our Wedding DJ at Carton House.

A HUGE THANK YOU for making our night entertainment dream come true! We had a fantastic time, our guests loved the music, you totally went by our play list and embellished it with a few crowd pleasers. Overall a great service and every single dancing guests loved it!! pity I as the bride had to disappear a few times to mind my lovely child (hey I’m a mamma) but despite it being so, I had a few groovy moments on the dance floor thanks to you and could not have hoped for anything better. Will happily recommend you over and over again.

Alex and Sinead

Hi Garvan,
Sinead and myself just wanted to say thanks for the tunes on Saturday night. Everyone said they had a great time!
We really appreciated your time and effort. Thanks a million and best wishes.

Bryan and Sarah

Had a great experience.
We booked Star DJs for our wedding. Colin was the DJ assigned to our reception. In advance of the wedding, he discussed what we were hoping to get from the music on the night. Colin’s input was very helpful and allowed us focus on the songs which were important to us and important to some of our guests. On the night Colin said hello and then dealt directly with the hotel’s banqueting manager on setting up his equipment etc. This was great as we were busy with other aspects of the day. Colin was great and announced our entry to the reception and the speeches etc.
The background music during the meal was perfect and in line with our tastes. The after dinner music was even better and Colin catered for everyone’s tastes and took requests from guests which made it much easier to get people up on the dance floor. If I had to rate the DJ experience I’d give it 10/10 and I’d like to thank Colin for helping make it a great night.


Communication in the run up to the event was great, with fast response.
Owen on the night was fantastic. Set up seamlessly, we barely noticed him sneaking in! Music was second to none and Owen himself was extremely courteous and polite.
Will definitely use you again and recommend you to others!

Lorraine & Brian Doody

Hi, Just wanted to give some feedback on our wedding in killarney. Mark was the Dj. He was absolutely fantastic, people were out on the floor the entire night, he played the perfect mix of music to suit everybody and we really couldn’t have been happier with him. He is a lovely person as well – thanks!!!


Hi Garvan
Just a note of thanks for a superb job at our event. The music was perfect and we have had lots of comments on how good you were.
Much appreciated for helping to make it a great night.

Laoise & Oli

Many thanks again for Saturday night. Your mix was perfect and we got a lot of compliments about the music.

David CJ Conroy

Jackie and I would like to express our gratitude to yourself and especially Garvan for helping to make our wedding the best day of our lives. I have already recommended you and passed on Star DJs details to another couple I met who are getting married here in Belfast.
Garvan was very professional in our meeting before the wedding. Everything seemed to be arranged at the last minute with us but Garvan was very reassuring that we would have a great party.
As it turned out, we would not have had it any other way and were really impressed by the music lineup which kept everyone on the dance floor all night! The wedding was a huge success and everyone commented at how the entertainment, the venue, and every aspect of the wedding made it the best wedding ever!
I will enthusiastically recommend star DJs to anyone for their event and especially if they want the greatest wedding on earth. Although, unfortunately for them, the greatest wedding on earth already happened to us!!!

Marie & Rob

Hi Garvan,
Just wanted to send you a quick mail to thank you for helping make our wedding celebration a great night. The music played we perfect – the dance floor was packed all night.

Simon O Callaghan

DJ played all of the songs requested.

Thanks again, Orna Cooke

Well what can I say, we had the best wedding day ever and I feel that Garvan played a huge part in making it so perfect for us. We met with Garvan a couple of weeks before the wedding. He gave us lots of really good advice about what music we should and should not have at the wedding and we took all of his advice on board and completely trusted him for all our music on the day. We told him to just do whatever he thought on the day and that we were happy with his judgements.He arranged the arrivals music at the Stephens Green Hibernian Club and he did the lovely background music for the dinner and then he played for the whole night. One piece of advice he gave us was this: He told us that on our wedding day wherever we (me and Declan) were the crowd would follow us. So he said if you want people to dance then we should dance. Well we took this advice on board 100% and the dance floor was full all night long. Everybody danced, the younger crowd and the older crowd. I have all the videos and pictures to prove this. It was so much fun. All of our friends told us after how much they enjoyed the wedding and that the DJ was BRILLIANT!!!

I am delighted you have emailed me to ask for feedback and i would like to say i was 100% delighted with everything that Garvan did. It was a pleasure to work with him and i would recommend him to everyone.
Please pass on our thanks to Garvan for helping make our big day just perfect. Next time we are having a party we will definately be giving you a call.


Good morning,
Sorry for the delayed response on this. We were extremely satisfied with our experience with Star DJs. The booking process was pain free, and all our questions were answered really quickly. Being based outside Ireland, it was extremely useful to have an email based booking, and as mentioned, every email was replied to very swiftly.
Our DJ Tim rang in the run up to the wedding to confirm details including the song choices we had sent, and to get a feel for the type of music we did and didn’t want. On the day itself, Tim was fantastic. He played our requested songs, listened to the guests and took requests, and even stayed on later than scheduled, when the band had overran and he couldn’t start on time. He had everyone out on the dance floor the whole time, which was exactly what we wanted.
As a side note, when he initially arrived, I was on my way to complain about the heat in the venue for the 3rd time. Instead Tim went to speak to the venue team, and within minutes the air conditioning had been turned up. I can’t tell you how grateful I was for that!


We had a ball dancing all night at our wedding and would have no hesitation recommending Star DJs in the future.

Orna and Declan

The dance floor was full all night long. I have all the videos and pictures to prove this. All of our friends told us after how much they enjoyed the wedding and that the DJ was BRILLIANT!!!

David and Jackie Conroy

Really impressed by the music line up which kept everyone on the dance floor all night! I will enthusiastically recommend star DJs to anyone for their event and especially if they want the greatest wedding on earth.

Claire Huth & JP

Just wanted to send a quick mail to say the DJ Natasha you sent for my wedding party in the Dean hotel on Saturday the 13th August was amazing , she had the dance floor full from the start of the night to the end , so you can pass on our thanks and if someone else needs a great DJ for a wedding I can certainly recommend her !

Jason Hurton

Garvan Riby was a pleasure to deal with, he played everything we asked for and everyone commented on how they loved the music on the night. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him to others.

Claire & Jean-Philippe

Star DJ were amazing! They helped us a lot to organize the evening party and set all the events during the party. They take their time to discuss with us about what kind of party we want, what kind of music, the kind of audiance they will have. With their experience they give us good advices to have the best party. Because were french-canadian- swiss they ask us to give them popular music from our countries to unify everyone and that was amazing! Thank you again for everything and my guests still talk about this great party!!!!

John O’Donnell

Brilliant service, got everybody going and Mark was a pleasure to deal with.

John Lavelle

Garvan was calm and reassuring. The music on the night was perfect and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. Many thanks to you all.

Pete & Ally

In a word. Outstanding! Anyone reading this, and considering Star DJ’s, look no further. You won’t be disappointed by the service, which is superb, on all levels. Garvan was an absolute pleasure to deal with, and with 20 years experience under his belt, and certainly knows his trade. He is also extremely obliging, and professional, and pricing is also excellent. We had Malcolm as our DJ on the night, and he was absolutely brilliant, the crowd loved him, as did we! We also got a chance to meet him beforehand, which was also a nice touch. We gave him an idea of some of the music that we were keen on, and he delivered, with bells on. Malcolm just gets on with it, and before you know, he is set up, and getting the crowd going! Star DJ’s are up for nomination for Wedding DJ of the Year, and without hesitation you will get my vote, and I hope you win, if you do, it will certainly be well-deserved.

Elanea and Seán Croghan ????

I have to say your service is excellent. Mark kept in touch regularly running up to our wedding and listened to everything we said. He even got a song I wanted for the father daughter dance.

He was most professional and a pleasure to work with. He worked alongside bongo and saxophone players we hired and did an excellent job. I would highly recommend your services to people and would have no hesitation booking with you again.
Please pass on our sincere thanks to Mark on a job done perfectly.

Kate & Mihir

Very impressed to be honest, he was very friendly and exactly what we were hoping for. Really got the crowd going with good initiative so just kept the party going longer. Would highly recommend.

A massive thank you to Star DJs and Garvan Rigby for turning our wedding reception to an amazing party. The dance floor was full, there were people dancing on the carpet as we run out of space! He had lots or tips for us before the wedding, great ideas for play-lists etc., and the evening was amazing. We had a mix of people from all over Europe & US, all ages and music tastes, but literally everyone (120 ppl!)was jumping and having a blast (even my granny of 83!). Garvan – a massive thank you for an amazing job in Clontarf Castle
PS. We did not go with the band, had the Dj for the night and it was the best idea ever.

Oisin & Deirdre

Very impressed to be honest, he was very friendly and exactly what we were hoping for. Really got the crowd going with good initiative so just kept the party going longer. Would highly recommend.

Stephen & Nicola

From the start Garvan was more than helpful. We met up and went through everything we wanted. He also gave us some great tips! He kept in touch right up until the day. Guests are still talking about the music and a few have even asked for his details as they have functions coming up.

Lorna & Stephen

Can’t reccomend Star DJ’s enough! Extremely professional service. At first we were a bit hesitent about getting an all day DJ instead of a band but we made the right decision in the end with getting Star Dj’s. DJ Mark had everyone up dancing from start right through to 2am. He was great at judging what type of music to play a certain times. It was great to have someone with his kind of dedication supplying the entertainment.

Stephen and Cathy

Hi, Garvan was amazing. He gave us great advice and really listened to the music we wanted. He also knew his stuff and played some great floor fillers. We didn’t want a band so it was important the DJ was good, and he was excellent. I’d have no issues recommending their services.

Katherine Venier

Thanks Garvan you were amazing! We’ve had lots of compliments about the music and the range of music played. Everyone enjoyed it, across all age groups and that is no small achievement! Thank you for the time and care you took to select the music and working with us before the event. We really appreciate it.


Huge thanks for Saturday night, all reports were that the music was just excellent and thank you for that. It made a huge difference.


Garvan couldn’t be better! we had a lovely party, music for every guest and a lot of fun.

Lynne and Louis

We were very satisfied with the service, no problems at all – timing and music was fantastic. The DJ had a great personality and got everyone dancing. Just fantastic ! Would highly recommend Mark to anyone.

Audrey & Lorna

We recently used the Star DJs Platinum Package for our wedding. Garvan and the team didn’t disappoint. From start to finish from when we originally made contact they were super, so much help and gave us guidance for both day and the music choices. The day itself was amazing and the dance floor was full from start (9 pm) to finish (2 am). In fact a number of the venue staff commented they had never seen so many people dance all the time at a wedding, and I would put it down to the DJ (Garvan) and his ability to read the crowd and quickly change any song that wasn’t catching the attention of crowd. The background music for the dinner was also excellent and a number of guests commented on how nice it was. We are still getting messages from guests their feet are sore from all the dancing. For me part of what I envisaged to make the wedding excellent was a full dance floor, and Star DJs (Garvan) made that possible. We would have absolutely no hesitation rating the service as 5 star plus and if we were doing it all over again wouldn’t change a thing about the choice of DJs of the fact we decided to not get a band. Thank you Garvan you really made our day spectacular!


I’d like to thank Owen for arranging an amazing DJ, Mark did an amazing job, played great music and kept people dancing all night! I highly recommend Star DJ’s!


Wish to say the music and service provided by Alan was fantastic. He gauged the crowd brilliantly and the dancing was a big success. There were many positive comments from the guests and we were delighted with what he did.

Jessica Renee

They always tell you that the DJ you choose can either make or break your reception. I did not really believe this, but I took the advice of my friends and did my research. I hired Star DJ’s because of the great reviews and the reputation. I knew Star DJs would not let us down. I still wasn’t sure what I was getting until we had our first phone conversation with Garvan, our DJ that would be doing our wedding. He was very attentive. He gave us such great suggestions. The night of the wedding was perfect. He knew EXACTLY what he was doing. I can’t tell you how amazing this company is! Someone who took getting married as seriously as I did, would make sure to do the research on what DJ to hire. Make this your easiest wedding choice. Hire Star DJs! You will not regret it

Ben and Mary

First of all, everything to do with the hiring and arranging of our booking was smooth and reassuring. We heard about Star DJs from a friend. It’s often said that word of mouth recommendations are the best recommendations, and this is definitely the case. We’ll certainly be recommending star DJs to all of our friends and family who are yet to get married. Mark went out of his way to keep both of us happy. The feedback we received from our guests was fantastic. Most people complained about having sore legs, but only because they could not stop dancing. One of our guests said that he danced more at our wedding than he did at his own! The music was simply fantastic. We were delighted with the service Star DJs provided and have absolutely no qualms about recommending them to anyone.

Colm Field

Garvan from Star DJs was excellent. He always got back to us very promptly, was very accommodating in the lead-up to the wedding, and on the day itself was professional and kept the dance-floor full all night!

Carrie & Mihai

I got in touch with Star Dj’s through Weddingsonline. I would highly recommend them to any of our friends or family for events or weddings. Mark was our DJ on the night and he was absolutely fantastic. We had guests from all over Europe – Italy, Spain, Romania etc. I asked Mark on the lead up to the wedding if it would be possible to play a mix of Latin and Romanian music and also music to keep the older members on the dance floor. He said it was no problem at all..and it wasn’t! The dance floor was never empty and by the end of the night most people had their shoes off so they could keep dancing!! The feedback from the guests was amazing. They assumed we had given Mark a list of songs we wanted him to play throughout the night but we didn’t. The only song we asked him to play was our first dance song. He gauged the type of music that got people out of their seats and onto the dance floor. So a MASSIVE thank you to Mark & Star DJ’s for our very sore feet.. we would do it all over again ????

Alan Ball

Garvan looked after our wedding in Barberstown Castle. Nothing was ever an issue and the communication was always prompt and professional.

He met my wife and I about 4 weeks before the wedding and really worked to understand not just our taste in music that we wanted to hear but also understand what our guests might want (we had friends and family from Ireland, America and Mexico).

He took all our views on board and made some great suggestions on how we could improve the day. We had no band so had Garvan from approx 5pm until 1am and he was really was our entertainment director for the day. He worked with the hotel staff before and during the day and we didn’t have anything to worry about.

We really couldn’t have asked for more from him and it was clear that he really wanted us to have the best day possible. We couldn’t recommend StarDJs enough and nothing was ever an issue for him. Thanks Garvan!

Lorraine Lewis

DJ Garvan was fantastic at our wedding on 10th March last. As requested he kept those 80’s tracks coming. The dance floor was buzzing all night. He was very professional at all times, and was only too happy to meet us in advance of the wedding to go through any must have (and not have) songs. Highly recommended. Brilliant night.

Sean and Edana

DJ Mark did a fabulous job. As we weren’t fussy about what we wanted played, we left him pick the songs. Excellent selection of music. Excellent value for money. Would definitely recommend to future bride and grooms.

Chris Richardson

A great service from start to finish, which included a lengthy consultation to make sure we were getting everything we wanted. Garvan played an 8 hour set including through the wedding meal – which was a talking point amongst guests. Read the crowd well and if a song wasn’t working he bought it right back so everyone was on the dancefloor. Well worth every cent!

Corey and Sarah

Sarah and I just want to let you know how amazing you did Mark! From the introductions to start it off all the way though the last dance, you did an outstanding job. Neither of us can remember any point when someone wasn’t on the dance floor. We heard so many compliments about the DJ and wanted to make sure you knew. Your announcements were spot on and you brought so much energy to the whole event. It was a special night we will never forget and you made it happen! Thank you from the bottom of of our hearts.

Corey and Sarah

Claire and Neil Cooper

We would like to thank Garvan Rigby from Star DJ’s, he was awesome from start to finish! A true professional who patiently compiled our song requests ensuring he captured our traditional Scottish and Irish ceilidh music in addition to the 60s/70s and 80s classics, the dance floor was never empty! We highly recommend Garvan for all occasions!

Claire and Neil Cooper

Eda and Simon

I was recommended by a friend to check the Star DJs website. We reached out to Star DJs to formally book Garvan. He was so responsive anytime we contacted him and even he called me to check in a few times. Our face-to-face meeting was also great. He asked the right questions to understand our style and our guests as well. He made great points and gave great recommendations. On the night, everyone (literally everyone) was on the dance floor. Even today (wedding was 3 weeks ago) when we ask people to send videos/pics, they say they were having so much fun on the dance floor that they didn’t even use their phones (how unusually great is that). I totally recommend Garvan from Star DJs!! What a fun, valuable entetainment! Garvan earned every penny that night! Thanks Garvan!
