We were absolutely delighted that we picked the Radisson for our big day as we sat only 300 guests and the staff were brilliant to each guest. We have no problem recommending the Radisson to any of our friends and family. From the second we booked it with Joanne right up to the big day you made us excited and not a bit stressed! Catering for the number of guests we had ye made us very welcome! And all the catering staff were outstanding and very helpful! Management and staff were unbelievable on the day very kind, warm-hearted people that made us feel very special! They were always smiling and made us feel very comfortable and thank you for that. ...

Once we booked our wedding in the Radisson, we knew we were going to be well looked after. Joanne and all the managers looked after us so so well. Joanne was constantly in contact and any query that I had, was responded to within minutes. Joannes checklist was so intricate, I knew we were in great hands, and any little details I forgot about, she reminded me of. On the wedding day, we were treated like a king and queen. The food was exquisite and all our guests complimented it. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. The following day we had a BBQ and the food was again, fantastic. I knew we would have a great wedding, but the ... Read more

Myself and my husband could not recommend the Radisson Blu Hotel enough. Our experience throughout the planning and on the day was superb. Joanne from day one was a pleasure and could not do enough to help us which made the planning so much easier. The hotel itself is stunning and makes for beautiful photos, especially in Ditchley House! The food was second to none and people still talk about that to this day! If you are unsure about having your wedding here, let me put your mind at ease. Our day went without a hitch and our guests felt very well looked after. We held our ceremony here also and the decor of both the ceremony room and banquet ... Read more

We cannot recommend the Radisson Blu Hotel, Little Island, Cork, highly enough if you are looking for a wedding venue. From our first appointment, we were made feel welcome and put completely at ease. All our questions were answered and nothing was any trouble. Coming up to the day itself "Joanne" was a constant in my emails reassuring us that all was in hand and answering all our questions again. When we had our BBQ the night before as a get together for family and friends that had travelled from abroad we knew we were in good hands. The day itself was more than we could have wished for, everything happened seamlessly and all of the staff no matter who, ... Read more

Both wedding co-ordinators (joanne and ciara) were a pleasure to deal with. They thought of every little detail leaving us with no stress in the build up! The staff could not have been more attentive on the wedding day. We had an amazing experience with the radisson.
by Abbie & Frank on Wed, 3rd October, 2018
We can't thank the Radisson enough, they went above and beyond on our wedding day. Ciara the wedding coordinator was absolutely amazing, she helped us with every little detail we needed. The food was unbelievable, very tasty, all our guests commented on how fab the dinner was, the staff in the Radisson were wonderful and made you feel right at home. We would recommend this hotel to future couples.
by Jackie O Connor on Wed, 3rd October, 2018
We got married on the 17th of March this year. The Radisson was the first and only hotel we viewed and we were immediately blown away with how gorgeous the hotel was. From our initial meeting with Joanne and her team we knew we were in great hands. The day itself was perfect. We opted to have a civil ceremony in the hotel. The room was like something out of a fairytale, it was stunning. The dining room was simply divine. The food was absolutely gorgeous our guests are still talking about it. I would highly recommend the Radisson Hotel to anyone looking for their venue. Thank you Joanne and your team for everything xxx Jackie and Shane.

Could not recommend the Radisson Blu Little Island enough. Staff especially Joanne the wedding coordinator were absolutely excellent. Nothing was a problem. We were made feel like royalty before during and after our big day. Food & service were excellent. Made feel at ease throughout the planning process. Delighted we picked this venue.

We could not fault our day in the Radisson Hotel Little Island. The staff were fantastic and were on hand all day to help out. The food was outstanding (drinks reception and main meal). We had our drinks reception outside on the lawn and guests were really impressed with the setup and we loved the privacy we got for our drinks reception.

From first introductions we felt confident that Radisson Blu Little Island was the right Wedding Venue for us.
by Eleanor & Darren on Fri, 28th September, 2018
I have nothing but excellent things to say about having our wedding in the Radisson blue hotel little island. We were at two weddings previous to our own there and we really enjoyed both so when we decided to start looking at hotels we knew the Radisson was at the top of our list. They were very prompt in all responses to our requests. If there was something we wanted to change or add even last minute it was no trouble at all. Joanne and Ciara who we were dealing with were so easy going in the lead up to the day, that it made our planning so much easier. They made great suggestions when we were not sure about ... Read more

The Radisson staff were an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. From planning to the actual day they were so professional, friendly and on the ball from day 1. My bridal party and guests have all complimented the staff in the Radisson, they were so helpful on the day and couldn’t have done any more for us and our guests. They are an absolute credit to the Radisson. Also the set up on the day, the layout was stunning, once again thanks to all the staff. Compliments also to the chef as my guest's feedback was that the food was amazing. (Radisson is known for amazing food) The day couldn’t have run any more smoothly due to ... Read more
by Aodhán & Jill on Wed, 5th September, 2018
We found the Radisson staff helpful at all times, flexible in responding to an extra person showing up on the day to being willing to change the wedding from a planned indoor civil wedding ceremony to an outdoor civil wedding ceremony when the weather proved suitable. The venue is spectacular, especially if you're lucky enough to get the weather to set up outdoors- the outdoor setup in the garden facing the old house really was a step up and worth the extra fee.The reception being out there worked out great as well, with people able to retire indoors or to the shelter of the parasols if the sun was too much. The food was spectacular. I cannot recommend this enough ... Read more

by Sureka & Sean on Wed, 22nd August, 2018
We had an amazing wedding at the Radisson Blu hotel. We were lucky to have an outdoor wedding due to the sunny weather. The wedding decor, all done by the hotel is beautiful and included in the package. The hotel staff and wedding coordinator Joanne O Donoghue are very organised, reliable and efficient. All the guests were well looked after on the day and we could enjoy the day as they took care of everything well.

Hi Ciara Thank you for your help in bringing our vision together. It turned out better than we hoped and could not have asked for more. The feedback from our Guests has been fantastic. You have an amazing team and the level of service over the 2 days was outstanding. Multiple tables commented on how nice the hotel staff were (on both days) Some of the guests had never been to Cork before and were overwhelmed by the welcome they received. Thanks again for everything. Kevin will be highly recommending you & the hotel to his customers. We are looking forward to our one year anniversary stay. Philip & Kevin

Hi Ciara, I suppose I'll start off by saying thank you for giving us an amazing day we couldn't have done it without you. From start to finish on the day it was absolutely amazing, where you had the ceremony positioned outside with the drinks reception all outside next to it was perfect way better than I ever pictured it to be. The meal on the day was unbelievable the chefs did an amazing job with it all from our menu to the vegan and vegetarian options just perfect. The feedback I'm after getting back from guest is great they couldn't believe where we were, as one guest put it ' it was like something from a film' I can't ... Read more

Picking a venue for your wedding is a big decision and for us our first thoughts were to pick a hotel nearer to home until we fell in love with the Radisson on our first visit. I loved the old style of Ditchley house with the open gardens while Darren loved the modern style of the Ball room. So both of us were sold!! We are so glad we picked the Radisson as our experience on our wedding day was amazing. There is not one thing I could fault. Everywhere looked amazing, all them little touches you add make the place look magical. Every staff member was so friendly and very accommodating not only to us and the bridal party ... Read more

We had our wedding reception in The Radisson Blu Little Island on the bank holiday Monday 2016. From the moment I walked up to the reception desk to inquire about their wedding packages (I was with my 3 year old in between school runs on a weekday in Feb 2016)...I was introduced to Ciara Barry and straight away I knew we were going to book our wedding here. We had six months to organise ourselves and I can honestly say I did not get stressed at all. Ciara basically said all I needed to do was to turn up on the day !!!! We chose our food after a food tasting that felt like a VIP experience with Dori . ... Read more

Myself and husband got engaged at Christmas time and we started researching the best places for our wedding reception. We booked loads of places and lastly we met the radisson blu team. By this time I was feeling so overwhelmed and the minute we set down with Emma the wedding Co ordinator in the radisson blu hotel I knew this was the place. I as so nervous and Emma just took it all away. We had our church booked but the minute Emma showed me the civil ceremony room, My husband said we'll there goes the church.

I can not say enough about The Radisson and its staff! We booked our wedding only 4 months in advance and every single person we dealt with, up until checkout the day after our dream day, were nothing short of amazing. We started our booking with Emma who was wedding coordinator, who unfortunately left midway through our prep, but we were left in the capable hands of Ciara who met us as often as needed and went through everything with us to ensure everything was right. We had our wedding directly after xmas and the hotel were so flexible regards dropping off wine/favours etc so that we could go and enjoy our xmas day with no work left to do! ... Read more

Hi Amy, What a day! We could not have asked for more from anyone at the Radisson. Thank you for everything you did in the run up to the wedding. I have to say you have a wonderful team under you in Pierre and Isabella and Seamus the duty manager is another asset to the hotel. Three beautiful, kind and patient people. They really could not do enough for us. Everyone commented on the quality and quantity of the food. Most people said they’ve been to a few other weddings in local Cork Hotels and have come away hungry from the meal. Not so at the Radisson. It was amazing. They ‘prosecco’ reception was also another big hit! People were ... Read more

When we were getting married we wanted a central location that had a bit of character, a large function room so people wouldn't be squashed, enough space to not have to move people's tables after dinner, a stage setup so that our band could get going straight away, excellent food, plenty of bedrooms, friendly, helpful and easy to deal with people and, of course, we wanted it at a good price. Needless to say we thought such a place didn't exist. So we were very surprised when we went to talk to the team in the Radisson Cork to find that they actually delivered all of this plus a few extras. I can't express enough what a pleasure it was ...

We got married New Year’s Eve 2014. The first hotel we went to look at was the Radisson Blu Hotel and Spa Little Island. The hotel was set up for a wedding that day, everything looked so perfect. The date we wanted was available so we just booked it. We live abroad so I was a little apprehensive about the planning. The wedding coordinators at the hotel made everything so easy. They were so professional and down to earth you could ask them anything. The day of the wedding was magical. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. The meal was outstanding and the service was unbelievable. The main reason the Radisson was such an amazing venue ... Read more

From start to finish our wedding was dealt with the most professional manner. Our wedding organiser Emma was so helpful in ensuring our day went without a hitch. The food was amazing and the staff were flawless especially a staff member called Pierre. I have never in my life come across a man so professional in the catering industry. I would highly recommend The Radisson Blu for any type of function.

We recently got married on the 3rd of October in the hotel. From day one when we first sat down just to enquire about the hotel we were offered great help and advice in a professional yet friendly manor as to how to approach or day which made it all the easier for us. Leading up to the big day the wedding co-ordinator Edita was in contact regularly making sure that we had everything in place, co-ordinating the guest room lists, organising our taster evening and running through the itinerary for the day to make sure all was in order. On the big day despite the weather being bad the hotel was setup and looking great on our arrival. The ... Read more

The Radisson, Little Island was a beautiful venue to have our wedding and the staff were fantastic to deal with. The events team were so accommodating - nothing was a problem and they took all out ideas on board and had excellent attention to detail. Guests commented afterwards on the excellent service on the day, the high quality of the food and how nice the staff were. Our guests had afternoon tea on arrival in Ditchley house and sat out in the sun listening to the jazz band drinking gin and prosecco! It was an amazing day and it went off without a hitch thanks to the hard work and professionalism of the hotel.
by Sarah Cleary on Tue, 14th October, 2014
We got married on the 30th of August this year and chose The Radisson in Little Island for our reception venue. This turned out to be one of the best decisions we made when planning our big day. The staff and service we received through out the planning stages and of course on the big day were second to none. I cannot think of one bad thing to say about this hotel and would highly recommend it to any future brides and grooms. The food was also a massive highlight for our guests. Since our wedding we have been getting amazing feedback from our guests on our choice of venue.
by Conor Fitzgerald on Mon, 13th October, 2014
Deciding which hotel to use for your wedding is a tough decision, we viewed 8 hotels before deciding on the radision blu. We wanted a hotel that we could trust to deliver on the day, and a hotel that we could with which we could negotiate all the elements of wedding day in an open and honest manner. The radisson really delivered and we decide to have both our wedding ceremony and our wedding reception there too. The wedding organiser Amy is sincere, warm and professional. Her follow up work was excellent, anytime we asked a question and she didn't have an immediate answer she followed up with an email within hours. She guided us through the planning process and ...

We got married on Sat. May 3rd 2014, in the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Little Island, Cork. We couldn't fault our day in any way!! The staff were very professional, helpful & attentive to all of us on the day. The room was just beautiful where we had our ceremony, the arch lit up with lights, the chairs all covered & lanterns lit the side of the "aisle", which is a strip of lights that colour matched my bridesmaids dresses!! The drinks reception that followed in Ditchley House with the jazz band was a perfect setting. The guests mingled, & we got family pictures taken there. The dining room was just spectacular!! The way it was decorated, with fairy ... Read more

We had no worries about our guests as we new everyone was being looked after. The meal was amazing and our guests are still talking about the food and service. My aunt had some food allergies which I was unaware of prior to the day and the staff catered for her excellently. Pierre, the waiter for the top table is in a league of his own....

Where do I start with a review of the Radisson Blu for our wedding? We got married on December 20th 2013 and quite simply the hotel could not have done more for us. The planning and prep work was thorough and stress free and when it came to the day the hotel surpassed all expectations. The staff dealing with the reception were great. Beers were flowing and the staff ensured that guests' glasses were topped up with purse co at all times. The meal was amazing. Each course was served to perfection. The food was cooked to order (steaks to each guest's preference), came out in a timely manner and everyone was raving about the meal afterwards. Pierre the maître ... Read more

Such an amazing hotel. Fantastic service from start to finish! I could not recommend Emma and her team highly enough! We had the most fantastic day of our lives and so much of that was down to the hotel. They were open to every suggestion we had and were 100% flexible. And of course unbelievable value for money!!

We had our wedding in May 2013. The staff and service at Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa Cork were great, always with a smile. They truly make you feel welcome. As for the food, what can we say, hats off to the chef! Our wedding reception dinner menu was superb. We could not have wished for a better day. I would recommend this venue 100% to anyone thinking of getting married in Cork.

I cannot recommend the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa Cork enough! myself and my husband had our wedding reception on the 18th of October this year and had the most amazing and special day of our lives. We really enjoyed everything from start to finish. We were made to feel like we were the only people in the hotel and were looked after from beginning to end. All of our guest thought that the hotel was beautiful and the food was second to none. I would highly rate this hotel and advice all newly engaged couples to come and speak to their wedding coordinator and taste their food as it is delicious! 5 stars!!

From the moment we booked this hotel we knew done the right thing. Any queries or requests I had were answered immediately. I was nervous about our wedding co-ordinator leaving and somebody new taking over. We had a meeting to go through everything just to make sure all was right and Clodagh was fabulous. I needn't have worried at all. All the staff were lovely to deal with. Pierre was absolutely wonderful the day of the wedding he made sure everyone had enough food and he entertained the kids aswell dressing up with silly props from the video booth we got. The food was amazing. I would def recommend this hotel for a wedding. There was actually three weddings booked ... Read more

To put it simply, The Radisson made our day. Amy and the staff were fantastic from start to finish. Since we returned from HoneyMoon all we have been hearing is how friendly the staff were and how good the food was. The drinks reception was excellent with good food and drink and it really set people in the mood for the main event. The room was magnificent and we didnt have a care in the world on the day, EVERYTHING was taken care of. Pierre who looked after the Bride and Groom and top table was also a real gem. We are over the moon we chose the Radisson in Little Island and would advise anyone tying the knot to ... Read more

We got married in the Radisson Blu in May & the hotel was fantastic. From the 1st app to view to hotel to the day itself we couldn't fault it. The venue was beautiful, the staff were fantastic(all of our guests commented on how helpful they were) & the food was amazing.

We couldnt recommend the Radisson Hotel Little island highly enough! From meeting Sinead our wedding coordinator right through to the actual day itself everything was perfect! On the day itself we were looked after by the fantastic Pierre who couldnt do enough for us! The food was fantastic and all our guests commented on this. If your thinking of getting married then the Radisson Hotel is definitely the place to celebrate in style.
by Caroline Coffey on Thu, 14th November, 2013
We had the most amazing day in the Radisson, it was 26 degrees and the setting of the garden in the Radisson was like somewhere in Spain, I'd highly recommend the Radisson in Little Island to anyone and the staff were so friendly, we felt spoilt the entire time. Everyone commented that the food was outstanding.

We celebrated our wedding day in the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Little Island, Cork on the 25th October 2013. We had our civil ceremony and reception in the hotel. We genuinely had one of the best days of our lives and we can honestly say that it was the Staff and beauty of the venue - that made it so. The hotel was absolutely beautiful and had a warm friendly ambiance that made everything so magical. Many of our guests expressed their delight of not only our excellent choice of hotel but also with the absolutely delicious food that was served. It was at a very high standard indeed. We would sincerely like to thank all the staff for ... Read more

We celebrated our wedding in the Radisson Hotel, Little Island on the 30th May 2013. When we first visited the Radisson, we immediately felt a sense of care and professionalism from the establishment and it was this along with the layout and asthetics of the hotel helped us decide that the Radisson was perfect for us. The picturesque Ditchley House and gardens combined with all the modern conveniences of a 5 star hotel, provided a perfect backdrop for out special day. From the moment that we arrived at reception to the moment we departed the Radissons staff filled us with peace of mind and assurance that our time spent there would be as enjoyable as anyones special day should be.

We had the perfect day in the radisson on our wedding day, from the minute we arrived on the red carpet to the time we checked out Sunday. Our wedding co-ordinator and her team were excellent, nothing was too much trouble for them. The staff were friendly, efficient and very helpful. We had a lot of individual dietary requirements which were catered for brilliantly. So much so the meat eaters were slightly jealous!! Our guests really appreciated this as a lot of time, they're after thoughts when it comes to food.. The room was set up really well and it was easy for people to mingle between courses. Food service was efficient and there were no huge gaps between courses. ... Read more

Hi.. I got married on August 3rd this year & our wedding reception was a complete success in the Radisson Blu Little Island, Cork. My husband (very strange saying that) & I had an amazing evening. Some brutally honest close relations & friends could not stop raving about the service & food they got on the day!! Top notch!! On the months coming up to our wedding I was dealing with a lovely girl who took a career change & left the Radisson ..she passed on every detail to the girl that took over (Cliona) without a single fuss. If ever I emailed or phoned Cliona I would get an immediate response & nothing was too much trouble! Bart was ... Read more

From the moment we had our pre-wedding consultation with Colette in the Radisson Blu hotel, we knew it was where we wanted to celebrate the most important day of our lives! Everything was perfect - from the beautiful tree - lined drive up to the hotel, to the old world charm of Ditchley House where we would host our drinks reception. The planning process was so easy with the team at the Radisson - nothing was too much trouble and they brought a wealth of experience, knowledge and good advice to what could have been a very daunting experience for us both! Complimentary menu tasting, complimentary gym membership ( he used!) and spa vouchers ( I used!) all added to ... Read more

My husband (Adam Holden) and I got married in the Radisson Blu Hotel Little Island Cork on the 24th March 2012. From the moment we entered the hotel we knew this was the ideal setting for our special day. We were dealt with such professionalism and were made to feel like we were the only couple to have ever wed in this hotel. The food was exceptional and the chef made it his business to cater for my vegetarian needs. The grounds of the hotel were beautiful which made perfect settings for our photos. Our day went perfect and if I could have it back again I wouldn't change a thing.
by Patricia Lynch on Mon, 23rd September, 2013
This hotel was second to one since the day we booked the Venue, the special day itself and the aftermath. I got married on 9th of August 2013 which I know everyone says is the best day of its life, but the best part of my day except of course for marrying my husband was the service and the attention to detail that Cliona (wedding cordinator) and the staff at the Raddison provided. Let me start by saying that we really got value for menu, every detail on the day was perfect, and beforehand when I turned into bridezilla the amount of times that Cliona met me to go through and ensure that every detail was perfect. I felt that ... Read more

We got married in the radisson Blu hotel in Cork on the 21st September 2012. From the day we went to look at the venue to the day itself the staff at the venue could not have been more helpful and made the day so much easier for us by looking after everything and making sure we had nothing to be worried about. The day its self ran like clockwork and everything was that we expected was delivered without question. The room layout was perfect and even with a fairly large crowd 240 sat down there was plenty of room for everyone. The food itself was fantastic and plenty to go around. All in all I couldn't recommend the Radisson ... Read more

The Radisson Blu hotel gave us a great day out! The friendly , professional, plentiful, staff were on hand to look after our needs from start to finish. The meal was delicious, stylish and impressive in the sparkling, spacious romantic setting. The beautifully restored old house attached gave an elegant backdrop for photos. All our guests were blown away by how sleek and effortless the flow of the day went. Our grandparents were delighted with the tea and biscuits upon arrival. We ourselves were thrilled by how the staff looked after the 30 children in attendance , with a play room full of toys and little activity packs to keep them busy while we lingered in the sunshine, sipping our ...

I would recommend the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa in Little Island, Cork to everyone. They went above and beyond what they needed to do. From the very first time meeting with the different managers Colette, Sinead and Caroline until after the wedding was over and all the guests were gone. We loved the venue, the food was so amazing, I have never heard so many people compliment the food. My husband is from west cork, and a lot of the guests are used to places to down here, and were thinking that they wouldn't get beef as nice!!! But we could not get over the compliments from everyone regarding the venue and food. Our suite was fabulous and our ... Read more

by Claire Sheehan on Tue, 30th July, 2013
Our wedding reception took place on the 6th of July in the Radisson Blu hotel Little Island Cork. From our initial meeting with Sinead the wedding co-ordinator, Mark and myself immediately felt that the Radisson would be the perfect choice for our big day. Cliona soon took over from Sinead and this transition was seemless. Cliona was very professional but approachable and friendly at the same time. this was very important to us. She gave us some really great tips that we would have never thought of ourselves. These really added to our day. When looking at the packages the hotel had on offer, we saw they were competitive. We wanted to tailor one of the packages to suit our ... Read more

Every girl has the ideallistic picture of their Wedding Day in mind from a young age, from planning the perfect dress, the unique venue, fantastic friendly staff, supberb food and service and beautiful weather is a plus when it comes to an irish wedding. Well, myself and my now husband got the whole perfect package recently when we had the absolute pleasure of having our wedding reception in Ditchley House, in the Raddison in Little Island, Cork. In all honesty all of our expectations were met and exceeded. From the moment we enquired let alone booked we were given the Raddison event co-ordination teams undivided attention, Cliona, Amy and Emma were there at our beck and call. Always on hand ...

From the moment James & I stepped into the Radisson Blu Cork we knew it was where we wanted to celebrate our Marriage. The wedding co-ordinater Sinead was extremely helpful from the when we enquired to the day after the wedding. As all couples we were both nervous and excited about everything, I only ever needed to pick up the phone to Sinead and be reassured it was brilliant. On the day of the wedding Pierre was our waiter he was outstanding, a total gentleman. The room looked so romantic with all the candle's and fairy light back drop. The food, which I still get feed back from was devine. All in all we couldn't of asking for more from ... Read more

We couldn't have imagined somewhere better then the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa Little Island to host our celebration. We were very proud to have chosen somewhere our guests felt was so special yet relaxed. We knew the Radisson was for us from the first day. We were warmly welcomed by Caroline who took the time to show us the hotel and answer our questions. The presentation of our options was clear and uncomplicated. This was refreshing considering how complicated organising a wedding can be! As all couples do, we wanted to make sure we were getting the best deal we could. Financial strain and a numbers game are part of every wedding. We won some and we lost some ... Read more

We held our wedding reception in the Radisson on 27th July last year (can't believe its been almost a yr ago already!!). When viewing hotels at the early stages of planning, we attended a Wedding Fayre in the Radisson and we booked our date there and then. we were impressed straight off with the personal service n guide of the hotel we received. Sinead was our co-ordinater - friendly,professional and nothing was ever a trouble or a bother! On the day itself, the sun shone so our guests took advantage of the lawn area to the side of the room where the drinks reception was held, while still being able to enjoy the jazz band that played indoors. We could ... Read more

Hello! We would like to share our impressions about our wedding venue! We had our wedding at Raddisson Blue Hotel and it was absolutely perfect! The wedding coordinator Emma was very helpful and made us feel very calm, and made our wedding preperations very easy! The venue was just perfect for our amount of guests and planned more than we expected. And the meal...our friends are still talking about it :-) Even before we've heard a lots of nice words about the hotel menu. On the wedding day , from the first step we had a very elegant waiter Piere- with his soft french accent which reminded me of romantic french movies. Even a little attention was paid to all ...

We chose the Radisson in Little Island because not only was it close to home, more importantly it's food was phenomenal. The food was such an important aspect for us and the hotel delivered beyond what we had expected. Three years on guests are still talking about the food. But food alone can not make a day and The Radisson made sure that every other aspect met the high standard they had set on the menu. The champagne reception was held in the house part of the hotel and the guests were greeted with a glass and a smile. The jazz band entertained the guests while the photographer made me feel like Maureen O Hara on the sweeping staircase. Service ... Read more

What can we say! Amazing hotel, amazing food, amazing service. We were so impressed with how we were treated from the planning stages to the day itself. Each member of staff treated us and our guests with such a welcoming approach and an organised attitude. The staff seemed to be really enthusiastic in their attitudes to their roles and were willing to help whether helping organise flower arrangements in different positions or helping carry my dress. Our guests are still talking about the standard of the food from canapes to the main wedding meal. Ever item was full of flavour and I heard no negative comments. Throughout the day, there were so many moments when I was thankful that we ... Read more

I had my wedding in April this year and I found them extremely helpful, from the time I booked the date to day itself. I couldnt have been happier with the service on the night as one of their waiters Pierre was absolutely outstanding. He will make your evening, he couldnt have done more for us from the time we arrived in the hotel until the time he finished. The staff are outstanding and extremely professional. I have a wedding there in two weeks and im really looking forward to going back there again.

The Radisson Blu Hotel and Spa at Little Island provided us with the perfect venue on our special day. The extremely wet weather on the day meant the usual garden pictures were not possible. Luckily this venue is so beautifully laid out and of course the amazing staircase located in Ditchely house was ideal for pictures. The staff were very helpful in the lead up to the day and on the day they done everything they could to make sure the day was perfect. All our guests at the wedding have commented on how pleasant and helpful the staff were. The food could not have been presented better and again all our guests have commented on how good it was. ...

We had our wedding in the radisson on the 06/04/2013 it was amazing. From start to finish the service we received from the all the staff was amazing they were so attentive and nothing was to much for them. The wedding co ordinators Emma and Caroline were so helpful and guided us through everything. On the day Pierre served the top table I can not speak highly enough of him. The food was top class 10 out of 10. I would definatley recommend the radisson without a doubt to family and friends they surpassed my expectations by far.

We had our wedding reception in the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa Cork in November 2012 and we could not have asked for a more superb venue. From the extremely pleasant and helpful events coordinators in the run-up, to the flawless service we received on the day, I could not speak more highly of the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa Cork.
by Deborah McCarthy on Wed, 24th April, 2013
Our wedding in the Radisson Blu, Little Island was amazing and that was down to the professional staff, who took care of everything, from answering questions, helping us plan our day to the food and the service on the day. There is a great team there from the wedding co-ordinators who you deal with before your day to the welcome you get on the day and the staff such as Pierre who is a gent and the gorgeous food prepared by chef Graham, as well as everyone behind the scenes there. I would highly recommend the Radisson Blu, Little Island for any type of wedding bid or small beautiful hotel, house for photo's, spa and garden.

The Radisson Blu provided us with the best day imaginable, from the first moment we walking into view the hotel the staff gave us their commitment and time, to promote the hotel, the surroundings and what they could offer us on the day. Not only were they professional but also very friendly and approachable. We had viewed other hotels but were only shown the reception area and party hall but Radisson Blu really made us feel welcome and that they really wanted to be part of our day. Once we booked with them, they took care of everything, nothing was too big or small for them and they were always willing to take a phone call from us regardless of ... Read more

We could not be happier with our day at the radisson blu hotel in little island cork. It was magical from start to finish. The weather wasn't great on our day but we didn't even notice it because we took our pictures in the beautiful old house part of the hotel. On the run up to our wedding,our wedding co ordinator could not have been more helpful and catered to our every need. The reception room was out of this world and we loved the fact that the tables didn't need to be moved for when the band started which happens in most other hotels. At the drinks reception on arrival the complimentary champagne was flowing freely and everybody commented ... Read more

We got married in August 2012 in the beautiful Radisson Blu in Cork. From the very first moment we met with our wedding planner the whole process was like a dream. Never had we a problem contacting the hotel ( even if it was for really small insignificant details) and they kept us informed of everything everystep of the way. In the weeks leading up to our wedding we had a beautiful tasting in the hotel where they made it such a special night for us with OUR Wedding menus printed out for us to make us feel like it was the actual day. On the day before the wedding and the day of i think it was our wedding ... Read more

After looking into several other hotels in the east cork area we decided on the Radisson Blu hotel in Little Island. We stayed in the hotel one night and ate in the bar that evening (all part of wedding research!!) and from that point we were sold! The food was fantastic and the staff and general service level was brilliant - We couldnt find any fault with it. The following morning we met with our wedding co ordinator, Caroline who gave us a tour of the wedding venue and Ditchley house where we would have our drinks reception. From this inital meeting we knew were in safe, competent hands!! For the next 12 months any requests we had for the ... Read more
