"When I first met Ciara I was blown away by her passion and genuine interest in Rochestown Park Hotel. We signed up with WeddingDates nearly 6 months ago and cannot recommend it highly enough. Instantly we started getting specific enquiries and it was fantastic to see results so quickly. I have had the pleasure of meeting Ciara along with the rest of the WeddingDates team and it is clear that their priority is to provide the best product and service for all their clients and constantly looking for new ways to enhance and develop WeddingDates. Thank you Ciara and the rest of the WeddingDates team for their constant support and keep up the good work!"Sarah Guerin - Wedding Coordinator - Rochestown Park Hotel, Cork
"Since our decision to join WeddingDates in late 2015, we have been continually impressed with their level of service, helpful and professional advice and not only are they always on hand for any questions I might have, they take the time to check in with us on a very regular basis to ensure that we are happy with everything. Here at The Shamrock Lodge Hotel, we have gained substantial coverage due to their hard work and dedication and are continuing to see the advantages of working with Ciara and the team. I would highly recommend them to any hotel in the wedding business and will continue to look forward to working with them. "Mary Glynn - Sales and Marketing Manager - Shamrock Lodge Hotel, Westmeath

Thank you to everyone at WeddingDates for your help, advice and support"Seán Read - Banqueting Manager - Langton House Hotel, Kilkenny

By becoming affiliated with WeddingDates.ie I have found the level of care and attention from the team to be excellent, the site is very user friendly for the venue and the advice and support is always on hand from the team."Cavan Dunne - Hotel Manager - Kinnitty Castle, Offaly
"I have been working with WeddingDates for nearly a year now & cannot recommend it highly enough. WeddingDates has raised the profile of Springfield Hotel immensely & joining WeddingDates has been one of the best decisions I made since I joined the team here. Karen Buchanan is my main point of contact & I feel she goes above & beyond & has a genuine interest in the hotel. Karen is always at the end of the phone & I was delighted when she suggested running a bespoke Facebook competition to fill off-peak dates that we had available. Setting up the competition was hassle free, and it was a pleasure to work with the WeddingDates team in getting it live. My enquiries increased two fold & I can honestly say I can name 4 weddings that came through the competition."Eileen Troy - Sales & Marketing Co-ordinator - Springfield Hotel, Kildare
