Overall I couldn't recommend the arklow bay Hotel enough for the day from the ceremony to the disco everyone had an amazing time and had great complements for the hotel. The ceremony room was decorated beautifully the reception was great very nice and helpful staff the food was gorgeous everyone I spoke to said the food was amazing one person even said every plate came out hot and it's not very often so many people are served without a dish being returned. We were looked after great from the minute we decided to have our wedding at the arklow bay. Orla is lovely and was very helpful in making sure we had a great day. I'd definitely recommend the arklow ... Read more

From start to finish we couldn't have asked for more for our special day. Lisa organised everything brilliantly for us from the first time we met her and we never had to worry once. We could contact her anytime we wanted and she would always reply very quickly and always with the answer we wanted to hear! She had suggestions for everything from florists to bands to photographers but was never pushy about any of them. She was just full of good ideas to help us plan our special day! We never felt like we were losing control of our day or that it wouldn't be as we imagined it. Lisa was able to help make it a perfect day. ... Read more

There are times when words are not enough... and this is one of them. The wedding team at the Arklow Bay Hotel, headed by Orla Ryan, were exceptional from start to finish. They are a team that never once flinched at a request, demand, or query, and stay true to their promise to make your wedding everything you want it to be. The ballroom on our day was exquisite. The food fantastic. And the staff even better. To have been able to give our family and friends the day they deserved, and more importantly the day we wanted will stay with us forever. Celeste and I will be forever grateful.

Recently got married in the Arklow Bay Hotel, the day was all we could have wished for. Our wedding co-ordinator Lisa was a great help we didnt have to stress/worry about a thing from the time we arrived to time we left she had everything under control and was an amazing support to us. The room was decorated to the highest standard, the food is still been talked about on how nice it was and all the staff were great over the weekend. I would recommend this location/hotel to any couple that are looking for a location to get married in. Our guests are still talking about our big day and it wouldnt have been a success only for this ... Read more

I can't even begin to explain how happy we were with the hotel and the day. Everytime we met Orla beforehand there was never an issue with any request we had. She made the whole planning process that bit easier as she was as eager to ensure we had a nice day as we were. On the day itself we had some sad news in the morning which meant I was the best part of an hour late! But thanks to Orla it felt like it was all part of the process when I arrived. Orla assured me everybody was ready, we all looked great, and that we would move at our own pace. I really cannot fault one single ... Read more

From the first meeting with Orlaith, our wedding organiser, to the night of the wedding, we felt like our special day was in the best of hands. We had everything we could have dreamed of, and the team at the Arklow Bay hotel made our day magical, a day thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. Our every need and request was met with the upmost professionalism, and Orlaith put us at ease through the whole planning experience, reassuring us, making us feel that we'd chosen the perfect venue for our wedding. We wanted a small, intimate day with close family and friends, and that is exactly what we got. The ceremony room was dressed beautifully, with an almost fairytale atmosphere. ... Read more

Everything was done to perfection from start to finish, any request we asked for was delivered without hesitation. The whole experience we had with the hotel, the wedding team and Orla was great, the team simply took all the pressure off us. Both our families felt very welcome at the hotel and the wedding room looked as my wife would say "fab"... The staff were very pleasant and there was good craic out of them, big thanks to Orla, was a pleasure to work with!!! Overall can't wait to spend anniversaries and many enjoyable stays in the Arklow bay again and again.

First of all, the build up was amazing. The hotel had a wonderful wedding showcase which gave us lots of ideas, as well as a preview as to what the room for the service and the meal afterwards would potentially look like. Orla was an absolute star. She was very practical and helpful when it came to organizing things, such as the table seating plan, the music, and the timing. She helped us to relax and enjoy organizing the wedding. Shauna volunteered to do sound for us during our ceremony. It was a small midweek wedding but they still made it feel like a very big special day. There were a number of vegetarians/vegans at our wedding and the menu ... Read more

Orla was our wedding co-ordinator and she was excellent in every way and helped us plan the day with wanted, every requested we asked for was done with ease and without any hesitation from the Arklow Bay. The room we got married in was decorated beautifully, I added nothing to the decor of the room, it was all done by the hotel. The food on the day was fabulous, plentiful, piping hot and delicious.

We got married on Saturday the 29th of July. We had our ceremony and reception in the arklow bay hotel. Our whole day and the build up to it was so special and memorable thanks to the bay hotel. From the moment we booked our wedding with them they made us feel so welcomed and they made the day so relaxed for us. Having both at the hotel made the day so relaxed. We have 3 children and didn't want the hassle of moving from the church to the hotel. We started off with a lovely breakfast in the hotel restaurant that morning myself and my bridesmaids. Then we got ready. My beautican. Hair stylist etc all came to the ... Read more

Our wedding was booked for early September 2017 with only 2.1/2 months notice. In considering our venue and after location (25 minutes into Wicklow) and package price the key deciding aspects were the environment around the hotel and scenery but also the experience of entering and being within the venue, this is where we were immediately excited with the Arklow bay. The facilities are spacious and offer and excellent procession through to the space which is bright, airy, well presented, clean and contemporary. A key factor for us in the end was the very evident professionalism and experience of the staff, Orla Ryan specifically made us feel safe, welcome and of value, that we mattered and would be looked after. ...

Myself and my husband were married in your hotel in June and can honestly say there was not one thing that we could fault... We had both the ceremony and reception here.. Staff were friendly, efficient and extremely helpful and were able to guide us step by step in making sure everything was in on time and perfectly.. Food was gorgeous, all our guests seemed to enjoy it.. Hotel was also very accommodating to vendors we had hired for other aspects of the day (dj, Photobooth, chocolate fountains etc) ... Our day went off without a hitch and we couldn't have asked for any better... Thank you ...

From the moment we saw the set up on open day in 2016 we new it was perfect. Shauna is who we both dealt with first and she was amazing and helped us make our final decision in choosing Arklow Bay Hotel. Orla, is the most laid back but professional woman we've met throughout our journey. Nothing is too much or too little for her. On the day, everything was perfect and not rushed at all. I was so nervous as we had a small wedding, the room would look empty, but Orla assured me it will be beautiful and she was right. All our guests were talking about how the day was just so relaxed and the food? Well, ... Read more

I honestly thought I would be a nervous wreck on the day of my wedding, but thanks to Orla and Arklow Bay Hotel I did not have to worry about one thing, I literally had to turn up on the day!! My pre-wedding meetings with Orla were relaxed, friendly and any questions or requests I had were not a problem. Our taster meal was fabulous and the staff very attentive to any changes we would like made - there were none!! The wedding room looked amazing, I just gave my colour scheme and left the rest to Orla! The food was tasty (even the vegetarian options!!) and piping hot and the service was faultless.

We had our wedding day here on the 23rd June 2017. From the moment we seen the room we knew this is where we wanted our reception to be. We had stayed prior to booking to get a feel for the place and everything was perfect. Orla was fantastic to deal with and always replied promptly to any queries we had. The room was even better than we had expected it to be on the day. You can tell the staff really care about attention to detail,everything was flawless.

AMAZING from the moment we first went looking around the Arklow Bay Hotel to the day we checked out after our wedding. It all started with a chat about price's and dates available for our wedding with Lisa our wedding planner. Lisa showed us around everywhere and explained everything she even gave us great ideas and options for our ceremony and all that followed. Leading up to our wedding was made very easy with no stress because we knew everything was well organised with the Hotel. They were always happy to answer any questions we had. Always fast to return our emails. They just put us at ease. When we checked into the hotel the day before our wedding all ... Read more

I can't recommend the Arklow Bay hotel enough from start to finish they were so helpful. Our day went amazingly, they seemed to have thought of everything and the staff were incredible so we were completely relaxed. Food was outstanding and the service was so quick for such a large group. The new decking and bridal suit were fabulous and a great addition. The biggest complement that we can give is highly recommending the Arklow Bay to all of our friends and family

We cannot recommend the Arklow Bay Hotel highly enough, we had our wedding there on 30th December 2014. From the moment we met with Orla and the team every query was answered straight away and no matter what the request was nothing was a problem even though I think we contributed to a sleepless night or two for Orla and the team when we asked if they could serve our toast drinks on hurls!! The food was amazing as always, really top notch and everyone was complimenting it and the size of the portions. The room was amazing and even though I have been to a number of weddings in the hotel it still gave me the WOW factor when ... Read more

We had an amazing day at our wedding. Our co-ordinator Orla Ryan was a fountain of knowledge from our initial enquiry and made planning our day so easy. Nothing was to much trouble for Orla and her team and our day went off with out fault. We had the most fantastic weather and were able to enjoy our drinks reception on the lawn, that followed by a fantastic meal and an amazing night made out day complete. I would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel.
