On September the 23rd 2016, all our wedding dreams come true, and we were married overlooking the sea and with Hook light house in our view, surrounded by 125 of our close family and besties. Everything about the planning and the build up was so chilled out and unfussy. From our first meeting with the Kelly family, I could tell that they were trying to save us money rather than exploit us. We were offered a taster meal and wine tasting also, there was never a doubt in our minds anyway but it was still nice to be given the royal tour of the newly refurbished Haven. Luxurious bedrooms with beautiful quality and detail. By far the most important factor ... Read more

We got married abroad and wanted a big party with all our friends and family to celebrate. We chose The Haven as we wanted something different to the traditional sit-down roast dinner. From start to finish everybody we spoke to was so helpful. We had a great day, the food was divine, the staff were so friendly. I have nothing but good things to say about the day. I would certainly recommend The Haven Hotel to anybody getting married, or organising a special event.

We were married in the Catholic Church in Dunmore East and had our reception in the Haven afterwards. It was the 10.10.1980!, downstairs in the El Dorado room. Very posh menu as it was a small wedding party. I loved it all..and when my daughter decided to marry in 2014...she went to the Haven Hotel. We had a wonderful weekend and the Kelly family are outstanding in their role as hosts. Nothing is too much trouble for them. I'm having my 60th there next year.

My partner and I stayed in The Haven for 3 nights in September for my brothers wedding. From start to finish we thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. The staff are extreemely welcoming, accomodating and professional and catered for our every need. Plus the scenery and views or the ocean are truly spectacular. The food is truly amazing with us enjoying all our meals in the hotel over the 3 days. I would reccomend the queen beef or the beautiful fresh fish. Our room was room 2 and was a spacious, beatifully furnished, modern room with stunning views and decor. I would highly reccomend anyone to stay in The Haven, wether it be for a wedding or a lovely romantic weekend away. ... Read more

We celebrated our wedding at The Haven in June this year following an intimate ceremony abroad. It was by far the most perfect decision for us and for our 280 guests and the Kelly family could not have made it any easier for us. Every request we had was executed to the finest detail and absolutely nothing was a problem for them to deliver. Despite not holding the actual ceremony there, it was every bit as much of a wedding that we wanted down to the smallest detail. The food was exquisite and the entire carvery was served by all the Kelly men! The table settings, flowers, ambiance, drinks reception and music could not have been more perfect. It was ... Read more

We got married in this fabulous hotel back in 2004 and it was amazing. Half our wedding party were welsh and they still talk about the roast beef. An Idyllic setting and such a personal service. If I had to do it all over again I would return to the haven hotel

We got married at the Haven Hotel on 8th June 2012. We took over the entire hotel for the 2 days and nights. Planning the wedding wasn't straightforward as we live in England so we put our trust in the team at the Haven and they did an amazing job. From the detail dining room set up to the way our guests were welcomed on arrival and taken care of throughout their stay, nothing was too much trouble.The team has an attention to detail that meant our wedding day truly was a memorable occasion for everyone. We had more guests travel from outside of Ireland who to this day still rave about the amazing food (the beef is to die ... Read more

What can I say about the haven hotel, well for starters Paul, Karen, Sharon and all the staff are very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. Our wedding day was perfect from start to finish and it was all thanks to them. Karen's choice of decorations was perfect and Paul's relaxed approach to the day really put us at ease. They made our 2 boys feel very much part of the planning and they were very welcoming to all the younger guests at our wedding as well as the adults which was very important to us. I would highly recommend the hotel to anyone getting married. Our wedding was a day to remember thanks to ... Read more

Myself and my husband had our afters at the Haven Hotel this weekend and we cannot say enough! The location, the service, the food, the staff, everything! All our guests are still talking about the best weekend they've ever had. The staff could not do enough for us, from start to finish. They catered to our every need and felt like part of the wedding party towards the end of the weekend. Thank you so much to Paul, Karen, Jayne, Sharon, Jason, Ron and anyone who I have forgotten, you made our wedding.

To Paul and the wonderful staff at The Haven. Thank you so much for making our wedding celebration so fun and memorable. Everything was perfect from the beautiful table decorations to the mouth-watering food. Every member of staff was friendly and so helpful - it was a completely stress-free day and all our guests had a great day and evening.Thank you so much! Andrea & Jeff PS. We spent our honeymoon travelling around Southern Ireland and Jeff was unable to find a chowder which compared to that served at The Haven! Delicious!

A big thanks to all the staff at The Haven for our wedding weekend. We had both our ceremony and our afters here and our every need was catered to. From the day we booked our wedding until check out we had no stress with organising our big day. Paul and his wife did everything to make sure we were happy and took care of a lot of details that we didnt even realise we would need. The outdoor ceremony was very relaxed and intimate and made our big day very special. The views from the front of the hotel are breathtaking and it was an amazing place to gather our family and friends. The staff were very organised from ... Read more

It's just gone nineteen years since my husband and I had our reception at the Haven Hotel.We still have fond memories of the wonderful service and hospitality that the Kelly family at the Haven provided for us,from arranging menus,flowers,wine and decor in the function room. With its beautiful grounds it's also an ideal location for photographs. I would highly recommend the Haven Hotel as the perfect wedding venue as the staff ensure an unforgettable special day.
by Julie & Erica on Tue, 3rd October, 2017
Paul, Karen, Sharon, Judy and all staff at the Haven Hotel were absolutely amazing!! Right from the start when we booked our wedding we were made feel so special, any questions we had were always answered and everyone at the Haven goes above and beyond to make your day a very memorable happy day! We had a small wedding around 50 guests and our friends and family still talk about it and how much they loved the Haven. The food, wine, service, function room layout,personal touches were perfect. Even down to the music Paul organised for us which had everyone dancing into the early hours :). The outside grounds are picturesque and capture some beautiful memories. Thank you again to ...

We got married on the 2nd of June in the Haven and all I can say is Wow!!! From the moment I arrived with my bridal party the night before we were treated like royalty nothing was to much hassle.

Congrats soon to be mr&mr/mrs&mrs/mr &mrs...and Huge congrats on discovering The Haven Hotel , Dunmore East.Lucky you!!!! Approaching our 8th year anniversary at Halloween and what a wedding the guys at the Haven delivered for us in 2009. From the spooky punch bowl reception to soup served in pumpkins...from warm smiles to constant attention, nothing was too much to deliver and suggestions were welcomed with enthusiasm. The Kelly family have excelled over the years in their wedding and party portfolio and I am sure they have more ideas to show off... Big or small, conservative or quirky, low key or crazy...this has to be your venue .... We still visit often....Great memories.....

We got married at the Haven Hotel on 21st of June this year and it was just the best day ever, our guests are still talking about what a fabulous day, location and the food was just superb. The whole team at the Haven are brilliant, nothanks a worry or care did I have because Paul from the get go put my mind at ease. Thank you so much everyone at the Haven for giving us our perfect day, a day to remember forever. Absolute fabulous venue. Karen and Thomas.
by Eimear Cusack on Tue, 3rd October, 2017
Where to start! Paul and Karen were just fantastic to deal with since day one, when we decided on the Haven for our wedding. It was our first and only venue we chose from! Absolutely nothing was a problem, they really cared about what kind of wedding we wanted and it meant we had such a personal, meaningful day on July 28th. And as for the setting - that view and the marquee were perfect, and the food was fantastic...the beef! Wish we could do it all over again.
by Eoghan W on Tue, 3rd October, 2017
Best wedding ever at the Haven - the most perfect location, most accommodating management, staff and brilliant food options. It suited everyone's tastes, young and old. We stayed for two extra nights so the dream would not end. Thanks again, The over the moon groom.
by Geraldine & John on Mon, 2nd October, 2017
I can’t put into words how amazing our wedding was. Not just the day, but the whole weekend. The Haven Hotel has such dedicated and friendly staff they make it all so effortless and enjoyable. We're still smiling! Geraldine & John
by Jayne & Barry on Mon, 2nd October, 2017
We met in The Haven so there was no doubt we'd get married there! We had family coming from all over the world so we all stayed at the hotel. We were made to feel like it was our own home for the weekend, as were the (many) small children we had with us! The staff were amazing, the food was amazing, everything was amazing! It's our tenth anniversary next week and our guests are STILL talking about the roast beef - indeed I think there were more photos taken of it than us! It's now our children's favourite place and will be very, very special to us forever more.
by jean burke on Mon, 2nd October, 2017
My entire family friends had the most special day ever at the haven, They made our day so effortlessly, all our needs were catered for without question. They was no more we could have asked for that day only for to do it again all over. The very special memories we both have off that day will stay with us forever and friends still comment on till years later. Thank you do much to the Haven and Kelly family X X X X

Where do I start! We got married on Sept 1st 2017 in The Haven and I cannot praise the place enough. A HUGE thank you to Paul,Sharon,Karen,Judy and all the staff that were working on the day. They went above and beyond to make sure we had an amazing day. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was done with a smile. The food was fantastic and plentiful to the extreme!

I would recommend The Haven in a heartbeat for anyone looking for a day where they can put in a huge amount of their own input and being a bit OCD I certainly did! Thank you again for ... Read more

by Emma & Gary Dinan on Mon, 21st August, 2017
We got married 7/7/17 and our day went brilliant. From our first meeting with Paul he was open to anything and let us do whatever we wanted. Planning a wedding can be quite stressful but Paul and Karen made us feel so at ease. We really felt looked after and that there was nothing that wasnt too much for them. The food was fantastic on the day as it always is anyway. The setup and layout was breathtaking along with the views. It is a fantastic place to have a wedding. We would do it all over again in a heartbeat. Mr & Mrs Dinan xxx.

We were so lucky to have the Haven Hotel for our big day. Since the moment we met Paul and saw the place, we knew it was the place we wanted. There is the best view of Dunmore East, the rooms were spacious and beds were so comfortable. The best part is the people who work there, they really look after you so well. Paul has been amazing from the beginning, he made everything so easy for us, he was so flexible with everything and it was just stress-free. Judy was incredibly patient and nice with us regarding the rooms as we had a few last minute changes. Jayné was again so good and helped us so much with the ... Read more

We got married on 18th May 2017. We booked the haven May 2016 and since then Paul, Karen and Sharon have been nothing but brilliant. We had a civil ceremony with just family and close friends (30 guests) and then a big afters with everyone invited. Any questions or concerns I had whether big or small Paul was always on the other end of an email to reassure me or help me out. We had the best wedding day, all the little extras I wanted or sent down were done and put together nicely and all our guests really enjoyed the day and felt so at ease. We couldn't have asked for a better venue. Words cannot describe how above ... Read more

by Fiona Ellis on Tue, 18th April, 2017
From before the time I got engaged I knew I wanted my wedding at the Haven Hotel. Dunmore East holds a special place in my heart, but it is the stunning location of the Haven that sealed the deal. Luckily the sun came out for our September wedding, and the views from the hotel’s gardens to the sea as we said ‘I do’ were simply stunning. The whole day and day two went smoothly and it was in no small part to Sharon, Paul and all the staff who expertly oversaw all the details. The food was gorgeous, our guests raved about the dessert table. The flowers were beautiful. And the ice-cream cart went down a storm. I’d recommend the ... Read more

Our Haven wedding was a dream come true in every way – from the first meeting with Sharon to the day we ...eventually...checked out! Smiles from ear to ear – amazing food, service and hospitality, (even going so far as to repair flat tyres for guests). Meeting Mrs Kelly the morning of my big day. I was full of butterflies and nerves. She was elegantly doing the flowers and she simply smiled and said "it's a lovely day, the sun is shining and everything will be okay" and it was. I knew then where the Kelly's got their finesse.

We got married in the haven in august last year, from our first meeting with Paul, we knew we were going to have the wedding we wanted.

We can honestly say we had the most amazing day (days!) in The Haven. The beautiful setting, wonderful hard working staff and stunning weather made our day so perfect. We actually couldn't have asked for a more wonderful place to have our reception. Everyone is still talking to us about the food too - it was SPECTACULAR! Having just gotten hitched, we can see what people were saying about "What a come down" afterward. We really know what they were talking about now - but the memory of the day and that amazing view that we woke up to the next morning from our gorgeous room is going to keep us going for a while! Paul, Sharon and team really ... Read more

Nothing was ever an issue, you were always at the end of the phone and you made us both feel so relaxed knowing that we were in safe hands. The Haven truly makes for the most fantastic wedding setting, with so many of our guests being blown away by the picturesque location of the hotel, with its breathtaking ... Read more
