Stephen and all the staff in Garryvoe were fantastic to deal with, The hotel was brilliantly presented and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The Venue Room was perfect and the Reception Library was also perfect. We have been constantly complimented with our choice of Garryvoe Hotel in the beautiful Ballycotton Bay since our wedding. But above all, the staff made both myself and Dee and our parents feel special! Anything we asked for was met with a "how can we help" or a "no Problem" response. Anytime we called by phone or in person we were greeted by name and we felt like we were part of the Garryvoe family. But above all it was the little touches, ... Read more

We got married on the 18th August 2018 and had our reception in Garryvoe Hotel and it was a spectacular day. It was absolutely stunning. We had an amazing day. The guests were really blown away by how friendly and helpful the staff were. The food was unbelievable. They thought it was magnificent, we are still getting people telling us how wonderful the food was. We recently received our photographs from our wedding and the decor of this beautiful hotel was spectacular in them. The Samphire Space was wonderful for guest to mingle and talk after the wedding ceremony. Organising such a big event can be very stressful however Garryvoe Hotel made it extremely easy for us. There was never ... Read more

Of course it is so hard to know where to choose for your wedding reception but as soon as we saw Garryvoe Hotel we were immediately intrigued. The staff there were so friendly from our very first interaction with them, then so helpful and professional as we outlined our plans, confidently assuring us that what we wanted was perfectly achievable. We genuinely wondered if we really could be as lucky as we felt when we went ahead and booked the hotel. When we got back in touch with the team at the hotel as it got closer to our wedding day we were met with confidence so self-assured it could even have been mistaken for complacency, but this confidence turned ...

Well where to even start. We had our wedding in Garryvoe Hotel on September 1st 2018 and it was just an amazing experience from start to finish. From when we met with Stephen Belton in March 2017 to the end of the wedding weekend we were so impressed and humbled. Every time we visited the hotel before the wedding it was a pleasurable experience and there was always someone there to answer any queries we had. The day itself was just seamless and as a bride and groom we didn’t have to worry about a thing. As a self-proclaimed foodie couple the food was something hugely important to us and it did not disappoint. In fact it was something of ... Read more

by Siobhan Carroll on Fri, 7th December, 2018
The Garryvoe was a dream location for our wedding, a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location. Aidan, our wedding coordinator was really easy to get on with and professional. He and the team were helpful and flexible in the run up to the day and even though we don't live locally, we found dealing with the hotel from a distance really easy. On the day itself the guys in Garryvoe made ran things perfectly. Everything ran smoothly whilst also being really relaxed for both of us. All our guests commented on how helpful and welcoming the staff were, and were completely blown away by the quality of the food.
by Aoife Leahy on Thu, 6th December, 2018
From the moment we entered this beautiful hotel to meet with the wedding coordinator for the first time, we were made feel so welcome and relaxed by everyone we met. I have to mention Liz and Brendan particularly; I personally might not have made it to my first dance intact without Brendans supervision and care. Everytime I turned around he was on hand to help me, better than any bridesmaid! Liz was amazing from our menu tasting to checking out; she was there smiling and helping. Our best man said without her he would not have made it through his speeches, she kept him on track and calm throughout. Everyone who attended our wedding has commented on the staff attention ...

We were delighted with the Garryvoe, a lovely hotel in a stunning location. Everything was perfection. Aidan, our wedding coordinator, did an amazing job guiding us through the process and made everything happen on the day, down to the smallest details. All of our guests commented on how warm, welcoming and attentive the staff were, and how great the food was. The bridal suite is an amazing bonus.
by Noel Day on Thu, 29th November, 2018
If I could leave 6 star review I would. The staff go the extra mile to take the stress out of the whole thing. Outstanding food, service and value for money. They made our special day extra special.
by Joanne on Wed, 28th November, 2018
We had our ceremony and reception in Garryvoe and I could not recommend this hotel highly enough. We could not have been happier with our choice of venue. The managers, receptionists, waiting, bar and housekeeping staff are all extremely professional, helpful, friendly and genuine. They made us all feel very special over the weekend. The food was outstanding including the freshly cooked breakfast. The bridal suite was the talk of the wedding (I gave my aunts a tour). They said it was the most amazing bridal suite they had ever seen, and they have taken a tour of quite a few! Aidan made us feel at ease and made everything very easy to arrange. I have since heard of a ... Read more

We had our wedding in Garryvoe and I can't recommend them highly enough. From the first day we went to meet them, we found them very helpful and catered for all our needs. They were always quick to respond to any request on the lead up to the wedding and on the day itself they were brilliant. All our guests were complementing the venue also.
by Katie O'Hara on Thu, 22nd November, 2018
We can not speak highly enough about our experience with the Garryvoe Hotel. The management team, Staff, service were all exceptional. We knew exactly what we wanted to achieve for our wedding and they helped us execute every last detail. We looked at lots of venues across Ireland but the Garryvoe stood out a mile. Stephen's experience, knowledge and attention to detail sold it for us. Not being based in Ireland meant we needed someone to take the reins and nothing was ever too much trouble at any point through the process. It was seamless. We had drinks the night before and the day after in different parts of the hotel and everything was fantastic - the food and cocktails ... Read more
by Deirdre on Fri, 16th November, 2018
We are delighted that we chose Garryvoe Hotel as our wedding venue. From the very first meeting with the hotel to the follow up after the wedding the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Every question we had while planning was answered swiftly and comprehensively, no request was too much. It made the planning and preparation so very easy for us. On the day itself the staff were so welcoming, not only to us, but to all our guests and suppliers and everything was arranged to perfection. Their professionalism and friendliness was second to none. I would most highly recommend Garryvoe Hotel and their staff.
by Jennifer on Fri, 16th November, 2018
We had our wedding ceremony and reception in September and I can’t explain how incredible our experience was from start to finish. We viewed a few hotels originally and obviously Garryvoe hotel is stunning but what made the final decision for us was our meeting with Ben, after speaking to him we knew we would be in safe hands with him and that goes along way when you are planning a wedding. Every time we called to the hotel after that we were so well looked after and nothing was too much to ask for, it confirmed we made the right choice. The wedding day arrived and needless to say the day and entire weekend went off without a hitch. ... Read more

Garryvoe hotel was a brilliant choice of venue we loved every minute of it. The staff were so pleasant and helpful they couldn't do enough for us. The food was fab, all our guests compliment us on our choice of hotel for the beautiful rooms, scenery, food, location and the staff were very pleasant.
by Patricia Browne on Tue, 13th November, 2018
We had a fantastic day for our wedding in Garryvoe. All the hotel staff were a pleasure to deal with in organising everything and on also the day itself. We chose to have a small reception but that in no way meant we received less of a service from the hotel. In fact we and all our guests were delighted with how well we were looked after and how special they made us feel on the day. The food as always was beautiful, guest rooms are very spacious and well decorated and the hotel is fabulous in a lovely setting.
by Danny & Sinéad on Tue, 13th November, 2018
From the moment we met with Garryvoe Hotel they have been a pleasure to deal with. They were always on hand to answer any of our questions and there was no request too big for them. Ben and Aidan were always so helpful and easy to deal with and on the day we couldn't have asked for more. The food was just amazing and the staff couldnt have done anymore for us. All of our guests were thrilled with the food and service that they received. I would highly recommend this hotel, there is a reason that it keeps winning awards and I have no doubt will continue to do this. Thanks to Garryvoe Hotel we had the most memorable ... Read more

From the moment we arrived at Garryvoe Hotel to view it for our possible wedding venue we both knew it was exactly what we wanted. Stephen Belton was just so amazing and professional in his approach yet so personable I felt very at ease and at no point felt overwhelmed, Stephen, all the staff and Management were so attentive. The food was outstanding, all our guests complimented on how beautiful it tasted and looked. The location of the hotel is just breathtaking, it sits overlooking the beach and bay. The interior of the hotel does not disappoint, it has been designed to such a high spec and attention to detail is second to none including the bridal suite which in ... Read more
by Gianda Mellema on Wed, 7th November, 2018
They were perfect. No request was too crazy like we had a Dutch and Irish flag by the rooms, we had green led lights in the room for the dinner and the reception. They were perfect on the day of the wedding making sure anything was going as wished. I could not be more grateful to Ben, Aidan and Brendan for their help making my wedding perfect. The food for the dinner was perfection and enough and the wine was delicious.
by Louise Ahern on Wed, 7th November, 2018
We were dealing with Stephen belton general manager in relation to our wedding nothing was too much trouble. I had a list of requests which he took care of we were in safe hands. Our wedding meal was fantastic everyone commented on how fabulous the hotel was and how friendly the staff were. We had a second day there aswell which we had in the library area. It was such a relaxing day and everyone enjoyed it. People could walk along the strand or use the swimming pool in the hotel before our second day party. We were treated like royalty from start to finish would highly recommend to anyone considering a venue by the sea.

Beautiful hotel, stunning bridal suite. Rooms are large and the vast majority have been renovated recently. Every request was catered to. Food was outstanding and the service was faultless
by Jayne Abernethy on Wed, 7th November, 2018
Garryvoe Hotel is the best wedding hotel in Ireland. When we were searching for our venue we walked into the reception area off the bar at Garryvoe and I instantly knew this would be our venue. All of the processes of having our wedding at Garryvoe was made so simple by them. We live in England so it was quite difficult to plan a wedding being in another country but Garryvoe made it so easy. From emailing us different table plan settings to re-booking our menu tasting to moving the tables in the function room 3 times for me. The day before the wedding they so generously let me put all of our stuff into the Bridal Suite so I ... Read more

We were blown away by the professionalism of all of the staff at the Garryvoe Hotel for our recent wedding. Stephen Belton knew exactly what to anticipate every step of the way and was honest with us from day one. The food was amazing and there were seconds for anyone who wanted it. Service was second to none and we were taken care of so well. I will continue to recommend, and sing the praises of, the Garryvoe Hotel.

by Regina & Gearóid Clifford on Wed, 24th October, 2018
We had our wedding in the Garryvoe Hotel on July 21st and we highly recommend this hotel. From our first viewing, we were struck by the generosity and warmth of the staff. The recently redecorated function room and lobby was a perfect location for our wedding reception. Stephen, Ben, Brendan, Aidan, Maura, Tracy and Liz were exceptional from our first visit right up to our Wedding Day. The staff fulfilled all our requests in an efficient and caring manner which made our day very special. The food was delicious both on our Wedding Day and also for a family function the day after in a private room which was beautifully decorated for the occasion. Our guests are still talking about ...

Excellent from start to finish. The level of service and flexibility was top notch and we never had to ask for something twice. All of our guests had a brilliant time and we couldn't have imagined getting married anywhere else! Brendan made sure that everything was perfect for our day.
by Theresa & John O'Mahony on Thu, 11th October, 2018
We knew the minute we got engaged we wanted the Garryvoe Hotel for our wedding. We would highly recommend Garryvoe. Guests at our wedding are still telling us how much they enjoyed it 4 months later. Anything we asked was never too big and we can't thank Brendan and his team enough for all their hard work and effort and giving us the best memories of a lifetime, thank you.
by Rachel on Sun, 16th September, 2018
We had our wedding at Garryvoe back in April and I couldn't recommend the place enough. The staff went up and beyond for us and made our day so magical. Ourselves and our guests were treated so well and looked after to the highest standards! Everyone commented on how delicious the whole meal was and how professional and helpful the staff were. Thank you so much for making our day so special, and helping us so much along the way, for yer hospitality, friendliness and patience, we really can't thank ye enough, we will see ye again soon.

Garryvoe was a fantastic place to have our reception! When we were looking at different venues we both just had a gut instinct about Garryvoe that we couldn't quite put words on...but we went with it and it was 100% the right call. The room for the drinks reception and the ball room were beautiful and the food was delicious (with generous helpings and seconds!). The staff were so good for looking after us and checking that everything was perfect. They put in so many little touches that we would never have thought of asking for: a special room to store our decorations the week before the wedding, they took our flowers that we had in the church and put ...

We had our big day on the 18th of may this year in the stunning Garryvoe hotel, from the day we met ben and secured our date with them nothing was ever a problem. Our big day came around in no time, I with my bridesmaids stayed at the hotel the night before and everyone looked after us so well. We had a civil ceremony at the hotel and the guys timed everything to perfection, we had tried a certain dessert at the hotel a few years back but they didn't have it on their menu anymore so we asked could we have it on our wedding menu & it was no problem which made the bride very happy.

We had our wedding in Garryvoe Hotel on 4th May and our guests are still raving about it! From the very first day we saw the Garryvoe Hotel, we knew it was the venue for us.

Choosing the Garryvoe was definitely one of the best decisions we’ve made. From the very first day that we met with them we knew it was where we wanted to get married.

Dear Garryvoe Hotel, You did a wonderful job of our big day. Every detail was effortlessly provided for. You were very helpful in advance and open to ideas. You never pushed extra stuff on us; it was more a case of 'you dont really need that bit'. The food was great, the surroundings were beautiful and all the staff from the boss to the barman were friendly. All our 250 guests loved the place and will come again. On the day after the wedding one of our guests lost an essential bit of kit from her wheelchair and the hotel staff pulled out all the stops to see that was found. Well done. We have no hesitation in recommending the ... Read more

We could not recommend Garryvoe highly enough as our wedding venue. From the initial meetings with Stephen, Ben and Andrezej to the day itself, nothing was too much to ask. Having worked in Garryvoe many summers ago, I always knew I wanted to have our reception but we still did shop around. In the end they were about to accommodate our budget and other needs. My friends still talk about the food at the afters reception! We would have no hesitation in recommending Garryvoe Hotel and their fantastic team. Orla and Shane

After looking at a number of venues across cork and kerry we went to Garryvoe. We met with Stephen Belton the general manager who showed us around and went through what they could offer us. We were really impressed with the venue and more so with the Staff. While the Venue is lovely, Mr Belton and his staff are the reason we chose The Garryvoe Hotel. From the General Manager right through all their team there wasnt one person who wasn't very helpful, polite and friendly. Any minor concerns we had were dealt with efficiently and without question. On the Big day Ben the Banqueting manager looked after our every need, we had an amazing day, everything we had planned ... Read more

We cannot recommend the Garryvoe Hotel any higher. From the minute we set foot in the door we knew it was the place for us. We were made feel special from the minute we were greeted at reception and throughout our first meeting with Stephen. The hotel itself blew us away , The wedding reception area has everything you could ask for, the round open bar gives plenty of room for guests to meet and mingle. The library area had a magical feel from the snug corners with lit fires to the breathtaking christmas tree and beach views. But it doesn't stop there, the ballroom is nothing short of amazing. It's an elegant spacious room with magnificent high ceilings and ... Read more

The venue is perfect, the rooms stunning and the food was divine. Everything was easy and nothing was too much trouble.

I cannot recommend Garryvoe highly enough. From the very first day we went down there to have a look nothing was too much for the staff. They are amazing. We met Ben on our first visit and I knew from speaking to him on that day that I didn't want to look anywhere else, I totally fell in love with everything about the hotel. The hotel reception room is like something from a magazine, I could see all the guests mingling there before the meal and that is exactly what happened. We got to speak to everyone there in a lovely relaxing atmosphere before the meal. The room itself is amazing and the food is out of this world. On ... Read more

Our guests and family who we have spoken to in the last month rave about how impressed they were by the hotel, the setting, the food and the staff. From day one when we met the wedding team they were a joy and a pleasure to work with. This hotel is made for weddings and the Garryvoe team is the best in the business at them. Stephen Belton, Aiden and in particular Ben who was our wedding manager were brilliant to work it. They gave excellent succinct advice and really looked to make ... Read more

We had our wedding at Garryvoe Hotel 28/10/17 and we couldn't have asked for a better venue. The setting alone at Garryvoe beach is amazing and ideal for wedding photographs, but the hotel itself is the real winner. From the moment we first viewed the hotel we knew it was for us. The beautiful décor, and stunning chandeliers in the reception room couldn't have have it more charming. The bridal suite was like something out of a fairytale and we already cant wait to go back and stay there again.The staff were always available to us from the very beginning of the process and they were there the whole way through the planning to help make it the day of ...

The big glass windows at the front of the hotel create a perfect backdrop for family photos. Further photos can then be taken on nearby beaches or in beautiful Ballycotton. The newly renovated bar and lounge areas are perfect for your guests to meet during the drinks reception. Our guests were delighted with the meal they received. Generous portions and plenty of second helpings on offer. The waiters and waitresses on hand were extremely helpful especially to us at the top table. The bar man on the night was also ... Read more

Then last year, Tommy proposed to me romantically, high above the sea on top of Ballycotton lighthouse! We immediately booked Garryvoe Hotel as it is without a doubt the best hotel in Ireland! A beautiful, family run, seaside hotel with the friendliest staff you will ever meet, who treat you to warm, Irish hospitality at its finest.

Absolutely fantastic! From the first day we visited Garryvoe we were never in any doubt that we had chosen the right venue. The library bar has a lovely relaxed atmosphere for the drinks reception. Food was excellent, both the tasting meal and on the day itself. By far the most outstanding feature here though is the staff, everyone we dealt with before, during and after the wedding were warm, professional and couldn't do enough for us. Could not recommend Garryvoe any higher to future brides and grooms.

We had our special day on the 04/11/17 in garryvoe and it was absolutely beautiful. I couldn't have asked for anymore out of garryvoe. From the moment we booked with them they made sure all my needs and questions were answered. We are living in the UK at the moment and they made things so easy that we didn't need to come back often. With Skype calls, emails and telephone calls from them to make sure i was kept up to date with all that was happening. Our guests couldn't stop telling how much they loved our venue and how much the staff took care of them. The food is amazing and they make sure everyone has had enough to ... Read more

Also to Liz who looked after us also on the night. All our guests said how amazing the day was and that was with the help of you both. I want to say the biggest thank you for all you done.

We choose Garryvoe Hotel for our wedding for the extremely quick response via email and for the venue location. Set on the stunning beach front of Garryvoe, The Garryvoe hotel is THE venue to get married at. The bridal suite is unbelievable with gorgeous views out over Ballycotton bay. From day one Andrezj and the team were just amazing. Each and every member of staff made us feel so special; nothing was a hassle for them. When booking the venue, Andrezj kindly showed us around the venue via Skype as we both live aboard in NZ. Emailing was the best method of communication for us, and I can say the team at Garryvoe responded within 12 hours or less. As ... Read more

We had a great experience with Garryvoe right from the 1st time we met Andrè & the whole way through. Anything we wanted was possible & he did all he could to help us make our day special. Unfortunately Andrè was called away the day of our wedding & wasn't able to be there on the day itself. The food was delicious & the staff were brilliant. Looking forward to a visit back for our anniversary. Ray & Lorna Stone.

Myself and my husband booked the Garryvoe hotel for our wedding nearly 2 years ago(before it was renovated). The moment I walked in I felt at home. Much to our delight the hotel was then renovated, what a bonus! What makes the Garryvoe hotel so special is the staff. They couldn't have been more helpful from the first day we walked in. On our wedding day we were guided every step of the way. This made our experience so much more relaxed and enjoyable. The food, the hotel, the staff, everything! 10/10.
by Dermot O' Kelly on Mon, 2nd October, 2017
We got married in Garryvoe Hotel in March 2017. The hotel staff, food, facilities and services were excellent. Andrzej and Ben managed our big day and they did so effortlessly. Nothing was a problem and all our requests were completed perfectly. The great thing about the hotel and staff was that the day was stress free for both of us and we enjoyed it immensely. I would highly recommend this as a venue to celebrate our big day.

From the first day we met with Andrzej to the days after our wedding all the staff at Garryvoe have been fantastic. After our first meeting we knew we wanted to get married at Garryvoe, they made every aspect of the preparations so easy and straightforward and we really felt they were looking out for our interests. They were prompt in getting back to us with all our queries and had great advice. On the week leading up to the wedding and the day itself they did so much and had thought of everything possible so that we could just enjoy our day.

We literally did not even look at another wedding venue we had just decided one day to take a trip to garryvoe for dinner and came home with a venue booked!! As soon as we pult up outside the hotel I envisioned myself walking in the doors in a wedding gown! The hotel has such a touch of class and friendly atmosphere around it, the staff at reception immediately greet you with a big smile and are so pleasant. We decided to enquire about our wedding that day and spoke with Andrzej he was amazing and had so much knowledge he recommended a lot and we immediately began booking our suppliers on some of his recommendations I have to admit ...

Added by Jane Where do I even start?! Ben, Andrezj and all the staff at Garryvoe are just amazing. Ben the manager we dealt with is so down to earth, professional and one of the nicest people to deal with. Nothing is a problem and all the staff make you feel like royalty on your big day. Liz is one in a million. Your typical 'Irish mammy' making sure everyone had enough grub on their plate. Laura on front desk is such a lovely person and fantastic at her job.

My husband Michael and I got married here, August 2017. Garryvoe hotel really made our dream day come true. Stephan The GM and his staff were so professional to deal with and looked after us every step of the way. The ballroom is elegant and perfect space. We had 160 people at our wedding. All our guests told us how wonderful the whole day was from start to finish and the hotel rooms were sensational, especially the two floored bridal suite. The food was hot and served with no delays. It's located right by a beach and guests were able to stetch their legs after the meal. Everything about the day seemed effortless and flowed together perfectly. I can honestly ... Read more

We were married in the Garryvoe Hotel in July and had a truly wonderful day. In fact we had three super days there ! From the moment we walked into the hotel, we knew it was where we wanted to be married. It's a stunning location and a beautiful hotel and we were very proud to bring 70 of our closet family and friends there. We had a civil ceremony followed by a drinks reception in the library and enjoyed a gorgeous meal in their smaller function room at the front of the hotel. We found all the staff from the front reception team, restaurant staff and the management team to be excellent. It didn't seem to matter that we ... Read more

On May 12th, Will and I got married in Fermoy Co. Cork. We held the reception of our wedding at Garryvoe Hotel. I can safely say that was probably one of the best decisions we ever made. We decided to visit the Garryvoe soon after our engagement as location wise it was ideal for us, given that Will is from Mizen Head, beside the sea was a perfect location for us. As both of us work Monday to Friday, and Will in Wexford, we found that it was difficult to make appointments with most hotels as the event co-ordinators worked Monday to Friday. Fortunately at the Garryvoe Andrzej the wedding Co ordinator was available on Saturdays/sundays for any meetings. This ... Read more

We got married in Garryvoe in March this year and they were absolutely fantastic, we couldn't recommend them more. From the first day we visited, to the meal tastings and to the day itself they couldn't have done more for us, nothing was too much trouble and everyone we met was so helpful and friendly. Ben & Andrzej were fantastic to deal with always on hand to answer any queries we had. The day itself was great, everyone remarked on how friendly all the staff in the hotel were and how delicious the food was, exactly what we were hoping for! Thanks so much to all in Garryvoe :-)

My wife and I got married on June 5th 2017. We chose the Garryvoe as the venue. My sister also got married there 3 years earlier so it's a family tradition at this stage. The Garryvoe is a wonderful hotel to get married at. We had our civil cermeony and our reception there. The venue is amazing, the staff are amazing and the location (Garryvoe) is amazing. I would highly recommend the Garryvoe to anyone looking for a great wedding venue. Thank you again to Ben, Andrzej and all the staff!!!

Garryvoe hotel delivered an exceptional all-round service for our wedding. From our first meeting where we discussed dates and budget, through to planning the day in detail and during the big day itself, everything was as we expected and much more. In terms of planning, Garryvoe clearly have a wealth of experience and are able to assist couples in establishing a budget and have good ideas for where to spend and where to make savings to ensure guests make the most of the day. The team are really friendly and down to earth, and therefore we never felt as if we were asking a stupid question. Far superior in this instance when compared to other options that we explored.

We had the pleasure of celebrating our wedding at the Garryvoe Hotel in May this year. We were blown away by how smoothly everything went from when we first dropped into the Garryvoe to enquire right through to when we were setting off on honeymoon. This is down to the team at the hotel who were fantastic. Everyone working there were so responsive to any of our requests and also seemed to genuinely enjoy what they were doing which definitely contributed to the fun atmosphere on the day. The food was superb (more high end restaurant quality than a mass serving), and arrived at the same time for all guests to enjoy together. The facilities at the hotel are great. ... Read more

Im not one for writing reviews... but the decision we made to get married at the garryvoe hotel was the best decision we have ever made and they absolutely made it the best day of our lives. We live in England so were worried about having a destination wedding. Though with the garryvoe hotel, there certainly was nothing to worry about, from start to finish they were so helpful throughout the whole process. Our guests were so complimentary of the staff and could not get over how amazing the food and venue were but most importantly, how brilliant the staff were!

Myself and my now husband got engaged in July 2015. When we were looking at venues for our big day, Garryvoe was was always on the list, but it wasnt until we called in and met with Ben that we truely made our decision. He was so good to deal with from start to finish, as was Andre and those on reception. We booked our date, put down a deposit and away we went. Anytime we called or emailed any queries throughtout the 15 months to our wedding, Garryvoe were so prompt with their replies, and even though our wedding was months away, we were always treated like we mattered. The weeks leading up to our wedding, we had our ... Read more

We got married on 28th April 2016 and it was simply the greatest day for us. It was everything we had hoped for and so much more. A huge part of making the day so memorable was the help, professionalism and support from beginning to end from all the team at Garryvoe Hotel. We had looked at a few other venues before Garryvoe but within minutes of being greeted and shown around by Andrej, we both knew Garryvoe was the place for us. The ballroom itself is gorgeous, the new Library drinks reception area was just so comfortable for all our guests to gather, listen to music and get into the party mood. We also got numerous compliments by guests ... Read more

We often spoke through email and came over for a few meetings. All of our guests travelled a long way and all 120 stayed at the Garryvoe. Our guests were overwhelmed by how wonderful and accommodating the staff were.

We are so happy that we chose the Garryvoe Hotel for our recent wedding reception. When we first started looking for a reception venue, we thought it would be a difficult choice, particularly as we live abroad, but it turned out to be an easy decision once we visited the Garryvoe Hotel. We got a sense from them straight away that our wedding would be in safe hands and that everything would run smoothly despite us organizing things from afar, which is exactly what happened. Andrzej, Liz, Laura and Ben were fantastic to deal with and made the whole process so easy for us. Everything about the Garryvoe was brilliant. The food was fantastic and they have a broad menu ...

Andrej went above and beyond for us. His experience in the business is evident and his advice and support throughout the planning was extremely helpful. The venue itself is amazing and is perfect for every size wedding. We had a large enough wedding and it didn't for one second feel crowded. The reception staff in the days before the wedding were also fantastic. Even though they had 4 weddings in the week running up to our wedding every effort was made to ensure our day ran smoothly.

All of the staff were so friendly and helpful, our guests are STILL talking about the food... i personally strongly recommend the chocolate marquis for dessert... and the reception room itself was elegant.

We had our wedding reception in Garryvoe Hotel on the 10 September 2016. We could not have asked for a better venue or a more professional and friendly staff than at Garryvoe. They made the planning of our wedding so much easier and helped us in all the stages of planning our wedding by being very responsive, helpful and accomodating in any queries we had. We could not have been happier with the reception on the day and everything went very smoothly and Garryvoe made it a day we will never forget.

Myself and my wife had an amazing wedding day at the Garryvoe. The location is beautiful, the hotel and its facilities are 5 star but the best thing about the hotel without doubt is the staff. They are superb. A lot of hotels hark on about being family run but the Garryvoe is the only one where I've actually noticed the difference the family run element makes. Proper personal service, always making sure you are happy with everything and the feeling of genuine interest in us and making sure we were happy with the plans. The food is amazing. Hands down - best wedding food I've ever had, prob best food full stop! Fresh, high quality served by excellent staff. ... Read more

We got married in Garryvoe in June 2016. From start to finish, the management and staff were a pleasure to deal with. We had the challenge of organising our wedding from Sydney. Unfortunately, as were saving our annual leave to come home, we were unable to visit the venue beforehand. However, their Homeward Bound service made it all very simple. Stephen and his team were also quick to reply to any query we had, big and small, and put our minds at ease every step of the way. Their extensive experience in wedding planing was evident, even at the other side of the world! On the day, the hotel was in pristine condition, with their newly renovated bar and the ... Read more

We had a fantastic wedding day in Garryvoe Hotel in June 2016. The Hotel has recently been refurbished and the transformation has been amazing so we were lucky that we could hold the drinks reception in the new Library which adds a whole new dimension to the Hotel. The setting overlooking the beach is spectacular and the views from the Honeymoon Suite cannot be matched.

Garryvoe was the second hotel we visited when deciding where to have our wedding reception. We had never been to a wedding there previously and knew very little about it. We initially met Stephen and Andrzej and were very, very impressed with the hotel, the bridal suite, the management and the variety of options for us from the menu choices, to the drinks reception, to the main reception room layout. We had our wedding in December and there was a great xmas atmosphere/decor in the hotel. We were in contact with Stepehn, Andrzej and Ben at various different times in the build-up and they were excellent to deal with. We cannot speak highly enough of them. We were pretty clueless ...

From the very first time that we went to view the Garryvoe, we were greeted with a really homely welcome. Andrez brought us through everything and convinced us that this was the hotel for us! He was brilliant and really talked us though every detail, with prices etc all in a detailed excel that he sent to us afterwards which was very handy. We didn't have to worry about anything once we had booked and paid our deposit. Coming closer to the time the reception staff were really helpful with who had rooms booked, if I needed to hold rooms etc. Then Ben scheduled in a meal tasting with us a few months before the wedding.

We could not have been happier with the quality of service and care that we received both on the day, and in the lead up to the wedding. Having researched many hotels online, the Garryvoe Hotel was the first we viewed and we didn't feel the need to continue looking after that day, and locked in our date on the spot!

Our wedding day was amazing and the hotel catered for all our guests dietary requirements without any complications as well as facilitated our set up with our different entertainment arranged.

We truly had a magnificent day and we couldn’t have asked for more from management and staff. They made the day so easy, relaxing and enjoyable for everyone.

Such an amazing wedding venue, we couldn't recommend Andrzej and the team highly enough. We were organising our wedding from Sydney, so whenever I had any questions about the menu etc Andrzej was always so quick to respond he really made the whole process really easy for us and put our minds at ease. The venue itself is amazing, the ballroom and bridal suite is stunning, the food was absolutely gorgeous all our guests were still talking about it weeks after our wedding. I always wanted a beachside wedding and I definitely was not disappointed with The Garryvoe Hotel. We can't wait to stay at the hotel when we come back to Ireland next year

5* service from start to finish. Absolutely everyone we dealt with throughout the planning, on the day and even after the Wedding were superb. The whole team there made the experience as relaxing and enjoyable as it is supposed to be. No detail was too big or small. Every time we met with Andre, prior to the day, he suggested one or two ideas which added to the overall occasion. The hotel and its team are just amazing simple as that, Would recommend again and again. 10/10 Thanks Guys

I can genuinely recommend Garryvoe Hotel to all kinds of trip makers. Ideal for couples & families alike. We (including our 150 guests) were spoilt rotten by the staff, who time after time made sure our day/weekend was as special as we could have hoped for. As you've probably guessed by my review, they actually exceeded our expectations easily. If you're looking for a venue for your wedding, go and have a look. If you're looking for a great value weekend break, book it now. Don't take my word for it; go see for yourself!!

We cannot thank Garryvoe enough for the amazing service we received during our wedding weekend. Everything was top notch from the food, the rooms, and of course the service! They make you feel at ease from the first meeting; a special thanks to Andrzej for this. They give you honest advice and are never pushy with any decisions. The reception team are always so warm and friendly and always put me at ease with my many questions The food was gorgeous, and Ann was so helpful during the tasting and made us feel right at home. Our guests were all pleased with the selection and quality they offered. The honeymoon suite was amazing, such a haven to relax in after ... Read more

Where do I start!! Garryvoe provided a 5 star service on our big day. We live in the UK so whichever venue we decided on entailed us placing our full trust in the hotel and its management. Within 5 minutes of visiting Garryvoe and meeting Andrzej, we knew that this was the venue for us. We were made to feel very much at ease and nothing was too much trouble. As with most of the hotels in Cork and Ireland, they are very well suited to the larger wedding however, we had an intimate wedding with 45 guests. Some other venues had limitations to our options because of this, but not with Garryvoe, anything we asked for was accommodated. The ... Read more

We had our wedding reception in Garryvoe last Summer. Garryvoe Hotel was an excellent venue. The hotel, the food and especially the staff were wonderful in every way. We could not have asked for anything more for our wedding! Andrzej and all of the staff at the hotel were incredibly helpful. We would highly recommend Garryvoe Hotel and would like to thank Andrzej and all of the staff for making our day so wonderful!!

My husband and I got married here 16 years ago. The quality of the food and service was second to none, and from regular visits since with christenings, communions and confirmations, i can say that the high standards still remain. From the moment we stepped inside the door for our first meeting with the manager right up until the big day we were treated like royalty. Keep up the good work Garryvoe!!!!

We booked our wedding with the Garryvoe early part of 2014. From the start they made everything easy and hassle free, we have given a wedding planner Andzrej and he was amazing really took care of everything. He gave us lots of recommendations and organised everything we would highly recommend him to anyone. The wedding itself was unforgettable and we will have amazing memories for the rest of our lives :)

As a wedding venue, I could not think of a more friendly, professional, understanding, beautiful and accommodating place. We had such an amazing experience and were blown away by the staff who were willing to go above and beyond to ensure we were looked after both on the day itself and beforehand (in fact the service continued after the wedding day as well). Food: Above par (guests were very pleased). Service: Extremely good (glasses continuously being filled, reception always there to help in any way, etc.) Room: The bridal suite was outstanding with a great view. It's perks were the 2 levels (opportunity to host a small gathering the following night upstairs around the large dining table), a Jacuzzi, a ... Read more

Hi Everyone, I choose Garryvoe Hotel as I had attended a wedding there in 2013 and found the service, food and setting excellent. The bride and groom also highly recommended it after the wedding. We got married on the 7th of August this year (2015) and the Team in Garryvoe could not have been more helpful in the preparation of our big day. They gave sound practical advice in organising a wedding for the big crowd that was attending. They were flexible in the arrangements of menus and wine. They always responded swiftly to phone call and email queries. Any request that was made for the big day was facilitated. I had a plan of how I wanted to have ... Read more

From the moment we arrived in Garryvoe Hotel to view the premises for our wedding we knew it was the place for us. The hotel had everything we were looking for, from the picturesque surroundings, modern interior decor and excellent staff. We were particularly impressed with the two wedding coordinators as they met all of our requests and they were very friendly and easy to deal with.The food in the hotel was excellent and we were very impressed by the hotels attention to detail of specific requests by our guests. Our guests and ourselves were certainly full after the meal as the staff came around with seconds and even thirds for some people. We stayed down in Garryvoe for a ... Read more

Garryvoe & their staff were truly amazing. The management & staff were extremely accommodating, helpful and friendly. We both really were able to relax and enjoy ourselves on our wedding day as we knew everything would be looked after. The venue was immaculate; the food spectacular. We are so glad we chose Garryvoe. Oh and the honeymoon suite is out of this world!

We planned and organised our wedding from abroad and I was a Little bit worried that things won't get ready on time but every time I talked to Andrzej on the phone everything got together and my nerves calmed. From the beginning on we had a fantastic feeling with Garryvoe, the location is absolutely beautiful, the Hotel is fantastic and the function room and the Bridalsuit is something else. But not just that, Andrzej, Ben and the whole team exactly knows how to thro a perfect wedding, we had the most amazing day and so did our guests. We got so much positive feedback, quoting our wedding as "the best ever". Food was really important to us and 5 stars ... Read more

My wife and I made our wedding reception at the Garryvoe Hotel. If we could go back in time and do everything again we would definitely choose this venue once more! We were thrilled that everyone did their best to ensure that our special day goes perfectly. The attention to every little detail and a smiling staff provided us and our guests a memorable night!! All our guests absolutely loved the atmosphere of the venue and the food. As for us, we were very grateful that Andrzej accommodated our needs and special requests.

we had our wedding in Garryvoe The staff in the hotel were all so kind, friendly and accommodating. They went above and beyond their duty and gave us complete faith that the day would run smoothly. We got so many compliments on the hotel, staff & amazing food. We would especially like to thank Liz who really looked after us at the top table. She made sure we were calm& collected for the speeches and ensured we were all fed and watered! Please pass on this message of thanks to all the staff & thank you for making our day unforgettable & perfect! We will certainly recommend the hotel to all our family & friends!

Exceptional is the only word we can use to describe our experience of Garryvoe Hotel, there is no limit to their hospitality, nothing we asked of them was refused. The staff on the day were amazing, all of our guests commented the same. Ben was so helpful throughout the entire process, he really knows how to make a couple feel secure in all of the decisions. We cannot thank them enough for their part in our big day
by David on Mon, 14th September, 2015
We cannot rate Garryvoe highly enough. The staff and management were fantastic from start to finish. Neither of us live in Ireland so organising the wedding wasn’t easy but with Garryvoe, not only were there no problems, nothing was too much for them and they were always looking for ways to help. Every person we met in Garryvoe from the managers, bar staff, receptionists and waiting staff were all only too willing to help and the professional service was always provided in a personal friendly manner. As for the hotel itself, we looked at many hotels both in Cork and the UK but the moment we saw Garryvoe, there was only one option. The function rooms, accommodation rooms, reception area, ...

I couldn't possibly say enough about Garryvoe Hotel! From our first visit down there, to every visit and phonecall in between, the staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating in every way. We fell in love with the place as soon as we went down there. The ballroom in particular is just magnificent and took my breath away. By the time we were shown the bridal suite, we knew that that was where we were going to have our reception. In the lead up to the wedding, a member of staff was always available to talk to, even if we just happened to drop in to the hotel. In the days before the wedding, we were able to ... Read more

We celebrated our wedding reception at Garryvoe Hotel on Saturday 15th August. The day was fantastic & all staff at Garryvoe were brilliant throughout the wedding day itself & the lead up to the wedding. All guests were delighted with the service, food & wine, accomodation & the venue itself. Stephen & Andrzej were excellent to deal with over the phone, in person & over email. They were always prompt to respond to any query. Anne was very helpful at the time of our menu tasting/selection & was able to offer advice on menu choices. Joanne, Tracey, Laura , Maura and the other girls on reception were extremely efficient & always on hand to help out with any questions we ... Read more

From start to finish we had the most fantastic day. The food was excellent the staff couldn't do enough for us and we were completely relaxed with no worries. All our guests gave us the same feedback. Perfect wedding venue. They promised us the day of our dreams and they delivered it.
by Teresa and Peter Whitty on Sun, 11th January, 2015
On our quest to find our wedding venue the Garryvoe Hotel came second to none. They were most helpful and forthcoming with information and, most importantly, took the time to listen to us as an individual couple to give us our dream wedding. The food was superb and their staff are highly trained. We've received nothing but praise and positive feed back from our guests. The hotel itself is a romantic, stylish establishment. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning their dream wedding as it will be delivered with ease and efficiency.
by Emma & Adrian Kerr on Fri, 9th January, 2015
We got married In Novemeber 2014 in Garryvoe Hotel, in the picturesque Ballycotton bay in Co. Cork. All in all our experience with Garryvoe was great, from initially meeting with the team right down to the level of support they gave us on the day, they were accommodating and the attention to detail was second to none. The choice in food and the options available to us when selecting our menu were very well thought out and the advice given to us from the staff was accurate and considered. We would recommend Garryvoe to anyone who is considering getting married.
by Mary and peter Clifford on Fri, 9th January, 2015
We got married in October 2014 it was the best day you could wish for. From the very beginning garryvoe and all the team there were fantastic to us. The first thing to say is we walked in there at 10 o clock at night to enquire about it as a wedding venue and we got welcomed the same as if it was the middle of the day with an appointment made. This is the most amazing thing about them they will accommodate you in every way possible and nothing is a drama they are very honest will give you excellent guidance and always put the couple first. Everyone knows your name and makes you feel very welcome. The food ... Read more
