Hi Alma, How are you? I just wanted to drop you a line about our fab day – to say thank you so much for our wonderful wedding celebration at the Royal Marine Hotel. You and the team couldn’t have worked harder for us or been more attentive and professional than you all were. You were an absolute pleasure to work with from day one, Alma, and from the moment we walked into the hotel (in a slight state of panic last year!), met Eusebio, and he graciously showed us around, we knew that the Royal Marine was the place for us. Our guests are full of praise for the Royal Marine – everything from the Arrivals Reception, staff and ... Read more

Thank you so much to Alma and all the staff of the Royal Marine for making our wedding day so special! The day was fantastic, the staff were amazing, the food was delicious, the reception room was perfection, and everybody had a brilliant time!

Dear Alma, on behalf of Lucia and I, we want to drop you an email to express our appreciation of the work done by the staff of the Royal Marine Hotel on our wedding day, Saturday 3rd September 2016. It is normal and expected for guests to thank the Bride and Groom for a lovely day and to say the meal was nice. However our guests have gone way beyond that in their praise for the Royal Marine Hotel and the staff there. More than one guest said the word to describe the day was "class". Other guests said "we had too much to eat". That is a good complaint you will agree! Both Lucy and I had the steak, ... Read more
by Emma & Ian on Wed, 18th January, 2017
We both could not fault the day. It was perfect from start to finish . everything that we asked for was provided. We got some provisional photographs back from the photographer and the room looked stunning. We had never seen it like this in all the pictures and research we did. We posted how happy we were on facebook and we would happily recommend the Royal Marine to anyone we know is getting married.

On behalf of my husband and I, we would like to thank Aidan , Elaine, Paul , and all of the staff for the exceptional care and detail you put into our special day on Saturday. The service, the food!

Hi Maeve, I hope all is well with you and you had a lovely weekend. I honestly don't think Trevor and I can thank you all enough for everything you have done for us over the past few months. We had the most incredible day and night of our lives and that is largely down to you and all that you have done and made possible. From the day we first met with you everything has been so easy for us. All elements of the planning process were handled by you and any questions or queries we had were never too much trouble and you were always so quick to get back to us. Thank you for all the suggestions ... Read more

We just wanted to personally thank you and Paul for helping to make our wedding day the most special, happy and care free day if our lives.

I don’t think any words I write could ever do enough justice to how amazing the Royal Marine was for Our Wedding. We’ve had so many compliments from our guests on the venue, the staff and fabulous food, music to our ears after the all the planning and preparation. Maeve, the Wedding Coordinator, is so accommodating and helpful and made organising Our Day so much easier and enjoyable. On the day itself Paul, the Operations Manager, was Top Class and left no stone unturned to ensure everything ran smoothly and we had nothing to worry about.

I am writing to send you a 'Big Thank You'. We really appreciate your assistance in setting up and organizing our wedding within the last five months. We were all very satisified with the wedding arrangements and we will keep you always in very good memories. Unfortunately I could not thank you personally in the way I expected to do. I was trying to get hold of you during our wedding weekend and to personally communicate your appreciation. Alexandra and me consider to spend some days in Dublin next year and to revisit The Royal Marine where you put on such a special day for us. We hope to see you in person during this time!! Also, we would like ... Read more

We had our wedding at the Royal Marine Hotel on the 26th September & it was a wonderful experience. From start to finish, the team at the hotel couldn't do enough for us. Everything that we asked for was taken on board. As for the day itself, it was run so well. The food was fabulous & the room looked amazing. I really liked how the curtains were left open for everyone to enjoy the view. I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel as a wedding venue. Big thanks to Maeve, Paul & Aidan and all who made our wedding such a great day.
by Carol & Michael on Mon, 21st September, 2015
The Royal Marine Hotel surpassed all our expectations for our August 2015 wedding. Having looked at a number of venues our immediate reaction when we walked into the Royal Marine was that it was full of charm and was exactly what we wanted to share with our guests. Maeve, our wedding coordinator, was fantastic to deal with in the months leading up to our wedding – she was so organised and reliable and every meeting with her was a pleasure. It was reassuring to feel that all our hotel preparations were in safe hands, particularly as our wedding day got closer. On our wedding day itself everything went even better than we expected. Paul ensured that we had no stress ... Read more

The Royal Marine Hotel is a fantastic place to have your wedding and we would highly recommend it. The location is superb, the rooms are lovely, the wedding reception area is gorgeous and the staff will go out of their way to make the day amazing for you. We really had a perfect wedding day on July 25th 2015. From the moment we inquired about booking our wedding at this venue, the experience was first class to say the least. Maeve, the wedding coordinator was pleasant and easy to deal with and put us at ease from the start that everything we wanted could be done. Aidan, the general manager was very present throughout and made sure that everything was ... Read more

Firstly and most importantly, The Royal Marine is a simply superb wedding venue, I got married there in June 2015, I had the best day of my entire life and would have no problem recommending the Royal Marine to anyone, in fact I would highly recommend it. The venue itself is stunning, the location is perfect but where the Royal Marine excel is in their attention to detail, in their understanding of the importance of the day and in their desire to make it so memorable. This started on the very first meeting with Maeve our wedding organiser, I can’t speak highly enough about her, nothing was a problem at any point and she made the organising of the event ...

I really wanted to recreate a typical Pakistani wedding keeping in line with my roots with some western touches, The Royal Marine Hotel helped me do just that. From the moment I came to discuss our menu requirements I knew this was the hotel for us. Royal marine understood the importance of the dinner in our culture and they helped to create a delicious Pakistani menu which my guests are still talking about how amazing it was. Overall I had an amazing experience working with Royal Marine and especially Meave Breslin, who was always on hand to help us. Many thanks again Royal Marine for making everything so perfect. Many thanks again Sonia

Hi Maeve, Thanks a million to you, Paul, Nigel and all the team at the Royal Marine. We had a blast, everything went really well. Our guests really enjoyed their stay at the hotel - it was stunning in the good weather. Paul was brilliant, he couldn't do enough for us, and took care of all the small details that we didn't think of until that morning. He also helped to calm my dad down, the nerves were getting the better of him :) I met your fiance on the night too, lovely fella! Best of luck with planning your own wedding, and if you need any recommendations, just shout. Thanks again for all your help, you really made our ... Read more

We had our wedding reception here on the 30th May 2015 and from start to finish the Royal Marine Hotel provided one of the best, smoothest and most professional services I've had the pleasure of experiencing. Our first meeting was a two hour tour of the hotel with every question answered and no detail too small to be noted. From then on every email was replied to within one working day (usually in less than two hours). A drop in visit with close friends on a Sunday afternoon resulted in a staff member taking an hour to show us and them around. All our special requests from menu tweaks, ice cream vans to sweet heart tables were met without difficulty. ... Read more

We got married in the Royal Marine Hotel last month and it was an amazing venue for our wedding. From the first wedding fair we attended we could picture our big day there. The hotel is so impressive from the outside, gorgeous on the inside with wonderful views. We had a lot of guests who were in Ireland for the first time so it was important to us to have somewhere that showed the best of Ireland and this hotel definitely did that. All our guests have commented on what an amazing venue it was. Maeve Breslin, the wedding planner was so helpful in the run up to the wedding. She answered all our questions quickly and gave us some ... Read more

This is due a long time, but we would like to say a sincere and huge thank you to the staff of the Royal Marine Hotel. In particular, to Michelle, Paul and Gina who went to great lengths to make sure our wedding day was perfect for us. They made planning our wedding easy for us even though we were planning it from aboard. Micelle and Gina were very quick to respond to our emails and helped us plan our special day down to the final detail. The banquet hall was intimate, elegant and absolutely amazing! My husband and I were in awe when we saw it. The food was also delicious and amazing! ; our guests complimented the food ... Read more

We were delighted with our choice of the Royal Marine for our wedding. In the run up to the wedding, nothing seemed to be a problem. We always felt like we were in great hands, and that everything was handled totally professionally. We also really enjoyed having complimentary use of the leisure facilities for 3 months and have continued our membership since. We couldn't have asked for anything more on the day of the wedding itself. Everything ran so smoothly, and exactly according to plan. Furthermore, there was a real personal touch as all the members of the wedding team were there. All of our guests commented on how well they were treated and many have planned to return to ...

We are both thrilled with the service that we received from the Royal Marine for our wedding on the 26th April 2014. From the moment we booked right up until the wedding day itself. Every query we had was answered straight away and Gina responded so quickly to all my emails. Paul the manager who took care of us on the day itself was great, he made sure everything was running smoothly. The food was amazing, really top notch and everyone was complimenting the food and the size portions. The room was great, set out so nicely and so spacious and airy with a lovely view.

We got married in September 2013 and the whole processes leading up to the day was managed fantastically but on the day the Royal Marine far exceeded our expectations. Paul looked after us throughout the day and he was amazing. He knew what he was doing, knew timings of the day and enabled us to relax and enjoy ourselves. The day before we spoke to the lady who dressed the small bar we were using for pre drinks and she got it spot on with regards to the bits and pieces we wanted. Equally the main room looked fantastic, the food was top class and a lot of people commented on it. During our weekend we got to meet the ... Read more

My wife and I celebrated our wedding here in June of this year and everything was fantastic. From the assistance in planning everything, taking time and effort to set up the reception late the day before and all the service on the day itself I would have no hesitation recommending the Royal Marine hotel as a wedding venue. We couldn't have been happier anywhere else.
by Claire & Ronan on Thu, 6th November, 2014
We had our wedding at the Royal Marine on October 31st 2014. We were looking for a special venue in Dublin as many of our guests were travelling from Mayo and we wanted to ensure a great experience that was worth the trip. Maeve, Aidan, Paul and all of the team were simply brilliant, both in the run up to the day, and on the day itself. Maeve is so organised which is extremely reassuring. Their professionalism and attention to detail was second to none and ensured a wonderful experience for us and our guests. Testament to the quality of the venue was the amount of comments from our guests on the quality of the food, the service and the ... Read more

Walking in the doors of the Royal Marine Hotel, we knew it was the perfect venue for our wedding. The grounds and building itself is just stunning. The attention to detail from the staff particularly Edel (our wedding planner) and Paul (manager) was flawless. The food, the room, the service is all top notch. I would definitely recommend this hotel as a wedding venue for any couples looking for something very special, romantic and unforgettable!

From the moment we entered The Royal Marine Hotel and spoke to the team we knew this was the venue for us, we are Ballroom Dancers and wanted to have our Wedding Ceremony late afternoon on the dance floor while our guests were seated all around us at their dinner table, followed by dinner and dancing, it was something the hotel had not done before and they were just as excited about it as we were, nothing was a problem to any of the team, everybody knew their role, everything went perfectly smooth and we are still getting complements about how well the day went, how courteous the staff were and also lovely the meal was. We got married 31/8/2013 ... Read more

We had a perfect wedding in the Royal Marine hotel in Dun Laoghaire. The location of the hotel in the heart of Dun Laoghaire was great and ideal for us as we had guests travelling from overseas and around the country. The wedding planning was excellent, and we met with Alma several times before the big day to arrange everything. All changes that we requested after the food and wine tasting were made and the quality of the food was excellent on the day. The staff in the hotel were so helpful on the Wedding day to make sure that everything was prepared for us and everything went smoothly from start to finish. All in all, we would highly recommend ...

For anyone considering where to have their wedding reception, I can't recommend the Royal Marine Hotel enough. The hotel is situated in a beautiful location, is clean and comfortable. But what sets the Royal Marine apart is their attention to detail, and the way they made our guests feel so special. The staff are amazing, incredibly customer focused and it was clear they had plenty of experience with wedding receptions. The day was planned with precision by Gina and everything went like clockwork. The banqueting manager, Paul, help calm any nerves we had and the whole team worked professionally throughout the day. Anything we needed, we only had to ask and it was done. However, we rarely had to ask ... Read more

September 2014 Dear Gina, Paul, Michelle & Maeve, We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the Royal Marine team for looking after our special day. Everything on the day was perfect and we couldn't have asked for a better venue to celebrate our special day.

From the day we went to view the hotel and were shown around by aiden we knew the hotel was the place that we wanted to get married, throughout the year the hotel and staff were so helpful and accommodating with everything right up to the day we got married and made sure our day was all we could ask for and more I couldn't recommend the hotel and its amazing staff highly enough if there was more stars to rate it I would, the food and service on our wedding day was amazing no faults no complaints with anything and nothing was too much trouble I only wish I could do it all again.

Amazing from beginning to end! I couldn't say a bad word against this hotel. The staff are incredible as is the venue itself. We couldn't thank them enough for everything they did. Nothing was too big or too small! The attention to detail in all aspects was fantastic. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone! Michelle was fantastic from beginning to end organising every little detail, constantly there for an little or big queries. She went above and beyond in every way and for this we will be forever grateful. On the day Paul ran everything to plan. Again nothing too big or too small. He was amazing with everyone especially our daughter. He was there every step ... Read more

We dealt with Alma Kenny. We found her to be both professional and warm with it. We had a fantastic day thanks to all the obviously well trained staff in all areas of the hotel. Nothing was too much to ask. We would HIGHLY recommend this hotel. For its location, old vs new worldliness, excellent food and very importantly friendly professional and VERY well trained staff.

All the staff were very friendly and helpful on the build up to the wedding and on the day especially the manager Paul and event planner Edel. Food was amazing. Couldn’t have asked for a better day. We would highly recommended the Royal marine to any considering a wedding or any type of event.
by Niamh and Robbie on Fri, 17th October, 2014
From start to finish, every interaction we had with the royal marine staff was enjoyable and stress free! Every question we had was always addressed immediately, and we were always treated like VIPs. It's such a beautiful hotel with so much history, yet still a has a very clean and modern feel. On the day of the wedding everything was beyond our hopes and dreams. The food and wine was superb, but it was the staff that really made the biggest impression. Our guests mentioned to us numerous times how welcoming the staff were, and it created a beautiful, warm and happy atmosphere. I would not change a thing! We had an amazing day.

We are just back from our honeymoon and I think it's only fair to say a very big thank you for the absolutely great wedding that exceeded everyone's expectations. Every single thing was perfect from the waiters in the hotel and room service to every tiny detail during the wedding. The royal marine's attention to detail was spectacular and I don't think anyone expected such a perfect day and wouldn't have from any hotel. You have definitely out done all your competition. I would like to say thank you to you and Matti for overlooking everything on the day and a big thank to Paul who coordinated everything on the day. Also a big thank you to Rocko who works ...

It was so easy to come to you with my questions and have you put me at ease. I really appreciate your advice and all your help!!! Paul was fantastic on the day, he was so attentive and it helped us relax knowing he had everything in hand. Brian and I could not have asked for anything more from you and Paul.

Back in October 2012 we had our wedding reception in the Royal Marine Hotel in the Carlisle Suite. What a great venue! Right from our initial meetings it was clear the Royal Marine were offering exceptional service and value for money. The friendly and accommodating staff, excellent food and beautiful rooms all added together to make for a thoroughly memorable weekend for both us and our 160 guests, many of whom commented on such a wonderful venue. Some have already returned to stay for another night! If you are looking for a Top Quality venue for your wedding, Royal Marine should definitely be considered.
