We had our wedding at Actons Hotel in Kinsale and could not recommend this hotel highly enough.

From the day we walked in the door as a newly engaged excited couple to 15 monthly later on our wedding day we had the best experience and top notch service. The two managers that we dealt with were

Ian Eaton(the wedding coordinator) and Ger (bar manager) both of these men went above and beyond and nothing was too much trouble.

The hotel itself is just in the nicest of locations set in the middle of Kinsale on the waterfront. The gardens and outdoor area are spectacular esp if you have a dry day you an really enjoy it. We ate in the hotel a few times before the wedding so were really confident that the meal would be 100% and again all stops were pulled out. It really says a lot about a venue when you have 196 people sitting for a 5 course meal and not one person had so much as a minor issue.

The entire hotel including the public area and guest rooms are impeccable.

I have always recommended this hotel as a must for accommodation or even just for a meal as its in a gorgeous part of Cork and a busy little town with loads to do

Thank you to all the staff at Actons hotel for showing us just how far ye go for your guests experience. You all made the biggest day of our lives run smooth and seamlessly.

In October 2017, my other half proposed to me in Kinsale, where we stayed at the Actons, the service was impeccable as was the quality of the overall quality of the hotel.

When we were looking at wedding venues the Actons was top of our list. From the moment we met with Ian and discussed how we

pictured our wedding, we knew this was the place for us! As we live in England most of our communications with the venue took place over email. Ian was always speedy with responses and no ask was too big! We tied the knot in August 2019 and had the best day. Everyone commented on how amazing the food was (5 courses!!), the service, drinks etc. The main room for the wedding was decorated beautifully. I would recommend this venue to anyone thinking about getting married here.

Thank you to Ian and the whole team. We look forward to visiting again soon for our (now) annual visit!

From the minute we meet Ian and walked around the hotel we knew it was the hotel for us for our wedding.

Ian was so helpful with every aspect of the planning he listened to all my ideas and what we wanted and added his own special twist and advice.
The staff, the attention to detail and the

vibe was exactly what we wanted from our venue.
Everything on the day was perfect exactly how we pictured it and more.

All our guests complimented on the food, the choice and the amount. Everyone was well fed and watered!.

If you are a bride and groom reading this I have no hesitation in recommending Actons for your big day.

Thanks again to Actons, Ian and the team for making our day so special nothing was too much trouble, from the new Mr and Mrs Scannell!

To Ian and all the wonderful staff in Actons, I cannot thank you enough for our amazing wedding day on the 11th of August.

Kinsale was top of my list for wedding venues and out of all the venues we viewed, Actons had something about it that we both loved.

Ian is a true professional and always

took the time to respond to a phone call or an email and always put my mind at ease. He is very calm and as soon as you sit down to talk to him you know that your wedding day is in the right hands.

The food was simply amazing from start to finish. It is something that our guests are still commenting on. There was plenty of it and the same goes for the wine. There were a number of specific dietary requirements at our wedding. Ian took all the details and reassured us that there was no issue here and they would happily provide suitable meals. Thank you so much for being so accommodating and it really took the pressure from us knowing that everyone was catered for and everyone there could enjoy a meal.

The drinks reception room and bar are alongside each other and I really like this as it keeps your guests together and they don't have to go off searching for the bar elsewhere.

The reception room was so beautiful and exactly what I wanted. The cherry blossom trees and the candelabras really stood out. I was just so happy with how it looked.

The following day myself and my husband stayed to have dinner. The staff could not have been more attentive. We felt very special and well looked after and we really appreciated that. It kept us in 'bride and groom' mode for another day which was a real treat.

I wish I could do it all again. Thank you so much to Ian and all the staff of Actons. We really had the best day.

Lots of Love,

Áine & John Holmes

We had our wedding in Actons last Thursday and we had a brilliant day. From the first time we went to have a look at the hotel, we had a good feeling. Ian and all the staff were great. He's a fantastic wedding co-ordinator, nothing was a problem, very responsive to emails and calls. Our guests were
