Jackie and Kay were amazing for making our wedding day unbelievably perfect. It was absolutely flawless and we could not have wanted anything more. All of the staff were brilliant, friendly, and approachable. All of our guests were amazed, not only by the beauty of the hotel but also by all the

staff and their service. From the moment we booked with Castlemartyr, we have been treated with the utmost respect and been accommodated at all times, even after two date changes due to Covid 19. Details were carefully considered and we were contacted any time if there was a query. Jackie has been amazing at getting back to us and ensuring it was such an easy process, especially when we do not live in Ireland. When we arrived ahead of the wedding, we were treated like royalty and that we were so special all throughout our stay. The whole wedding day was flawless and I would not change a thing, and that was a credit to all of the staff at Castlemartyr. Even the days after when we were at the hotel, with other weddings happening, we were still treated like we were the most important people, which made our time there even better. Every guest commented on how amazing the food was too, a lot even said it was the best wedding food they had ever had! Castlemartyr will always hold a very special place in our hearts, and we are already planning our next time there.

My husband, our family, friends, and I can’t thank Castlemartyr Resort enough for the amazing wedding we had there. Everything was just spectacular from planning all the details with Jackie and other staff members to the incredible food beautifully presented and served, as well as the lovely

service at the front desk. The service at the Knight’s Bar was also wonderful and we enjoyed our time there so much!

As a wedding photographer myself, it’s so important to me that my own wedding be a stand out event. Castlemartyr made my dreams come true. I felt so welcome and cared for as a bride and a guest. The rooms we booked were a huge hit among our guests and ourselves. The extra mile was given to us, even though our wedding was quite small. Everyone was so amazing and our photos came out beautifully thanks to the gorgeous property. We will be loyal customers for life! The memories we have of this romantic day and perfect hotel are literally priceless.

We recently stayed at Castlemartyr Resort. While staying there, we were also very fortunate to have celebrated our wedding ceremony and reception there. Having previously stayed at Castlemartyr several times, the decision to have our wedding in a place we regard as a home away from home was the

right choice.

We wanted to take this opportunity to express our thanks and appreciation to all the resort staff who helped make our stay and wedding such a wonderful experience for us and for our wedding guests. In particular, we want to say thank you to Sakshi for all her help and advice in planning the ceremony and reception. On the day of the wedding, everything went well and the quality of the service and food etc. was first class. Sakshi worked with our wedding planner to ensure everything went smoothly. We, and all of our guests, including our wedding planner, were so impressed with the setting and service provided by Castlemartyr.

We also want to say a big thank you to Anetta who took such good care of us while staying in the Orchard Lodges. She really spoiled us with the level of service and attention to detail. Annetta was warm and friendly from the time we arrived and continued to check in with us the whole time we were there. It’s not often that one comes across a hotel staff member who is so responsive and welcoming. If you have a staff recognition program, we would like to nominate Anetta for being such a great representative for the hotel in providing a service that not only met but exceeded our expectations.

We were also impressed that staff we hadn’t dealt with recognised us and congratulated us on our wedding. Everyone we dealt with at Castlemartyr was so welcoming and helpful.

Thank you again for making our stay, and especially our wedding day, so memorable and special.

We look forward to returning to Castlemartyr Resort, which after our recent stay, is now an extra special place for us when we visit Ireland.

Best wishes,
Kieran & David

Thank you so much to Lucy and all of the wedding co-ordination team at Castlemartyr for providing us with the most magical day of our lives. From the minute we decided to have our wedding in Castlemartyr, we were treated impeccably well and always with the utmost courtesy and kindness. On the day

itself, we were made to feel like royalty, from the second we arrived and at many other intervals throughout the day. We had some extra entertainment planned for the day so it was very important that a tight schedule was maintained. I would like to pay a particular mention to Kay for running such a tight ship on the day and keeping everything to plan. So, to Lucy, Kay, Richard and all the other staff in Castlemartyr on behalf of us both we want to say a massive thank you. We could not recommend you enough.

Words can't express how grateful we are for everything from the staff at the Castlemartyr. Aoife, Lucy, Richard, Scott, Trevor and all the staff. The constant smiles from yourself Aoife, Scott, Richard and all the staff on the day was a constant reassurance for us. Aoife and Lucy, your support and

help leading up to and on the day was a godsend and so considerate each step of the way. Richard was brilliant during our reception dinner along with the entire event staff. He was fantastically accommodating and informative as we tried to ad-lib how to organise the night and speeches etc from our top table. We can't thank him enough. Our wedding day was made even better by choosing the Castlemartyr back in 2020 as the venue for our special day, and 3.5 years later when we were finally able to have our celebration, it was still the best decision.

Castlemartyr is a breathtaking venue and booking it was a no brainer once we had visited it. However, we never knew then how truly incredible it would be on the day. We had the absolute best day and this was in no small part due to the amazing work of all the staff at Castlemartyr. Our guests could

not have been more complimentary of the staff and the food and drink. Many of them told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to. It is 5 weeks since our wedding now and we are still pinching ourselves over how incredible it all was. One of our friends only said to us yesterday how the beef was probably the best beef he has ever had. Everyone was impressed with how well fed we all were and they all commented on how beautiful the venue was. We decided not to add too much decor in terms of flowers etc and didn’t know if it would be missed but it really wasn’t. People commented on the beautiful candelabras and the stunning chandeliers. From the first visit, to our menu tasting, to the days leading up to it we could not have asked for more, every member of staff we spoke to was honestly so helpful and willing to do whatever they could to make our wishes come true. Kevin the Head Chef looked after us really well at our tasting and the quality of the food was not reduced when it was done for all our guests. Jackie was also great in responding to any of our questions. Sakshi was just fantastic she paid as much attention to detail as we did so no detail was overlooked. Thank you so much Sakshi, you honestly made our day perfect! Maeve in reservations was just brill, she looked after all our guests and even managed to get an adjoining room for my 101 year old Granny so that she could be there too. Kay ran the day like clock work and ensured we didn’t need to worry about anything. There were so many other staff that we interacted with who I unfortunately don’t know the names of but thank you so much to each and every single one of you. We cannot wait to come back!

10/10 experience and a 5 star rating for a 5 star day. Mark and I had the best day ever thanks to all in Castlemartyr Resort. So too did our guests!

Firstly, the hotel’s willingness to assist us in having our wedding ceremony at home was something else. This was just so special for us and

Read More

with the hotel’s help and resources, it became a reality quite easily. It just shows the extra mile to which the hotel will go. As locals, we felt blessed.

The planning of the day took off to a slow start but from the moment Sachi came on board, she had every fine detail confirmed and planned to a tee. She was so friendly, helpful, hospitable and organised. As a result of her professionalism, the wedding was quite seamless and exactly how we envisaged. I know a couple who are working with her at the moment on their wedding and I have made sure to press on them how lucky they are to have Sachi on board.

I recall one day calling up to the hotel pre-wedding up to ninety as there was a change in our wedding co-ordinator. I recall chatting with Kay, who reassured me that all was in hand and I had nothing to worry about. I went home and had a sound nights sleep, those small things meant a lot.

On the day, everything was perfect from the drinks reception to the delicious food, the welcome reception etc. Again, Kay was always at hand and just made the whole experience so happy, fun and worry free. I would say that there was an obvious shortage of staffing but the staff that were present navigated through that. Nothing went wrong because of it and we still had a great and perfect day.

Overall, we were over the moon with all that Castlemartyr Resort did for us and enjoyed the experience
immensely. A special thanks to Sachi and Kay, they are one in a million. -Paula and Mark

From the moment we arrived in Ireland and saw Castlemartyr Resort, we knew it was the venue for us. They absolutely had fantastic service and welcome from Yvonne and the restaurant team during our wedding tasting. The food was of the highest quality, locally sourced and incredible, which the kitchen

can produce to cater for our 150 guests. Both the canopy bar for our drinks and the wedding room was beautifully set up, both modern and tasteful. We were lucky enough to have gorgeous sunshine in October. Our guests were so impressed with the grounds. They all enjoyed the golf and spa facilities before our big day, as well as the walks and seeing the beautiful horses.

Yvonne and the team managed everything well on the day, and everything went completely smoothly. We didn’t have to think about a thing! The bridal suite was also beautiful, with so much space for all the wedding party beforehand. The in-house hair stylist for my wedding hair made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. We can’t thank you all enough, from the check-in and concierge staff to the staff serving and Yvonne managing throughout - you made our day absolutely perfect!

Please extend our thanks to the rest of the hotel and wedding staff including Kay who was a great help on the night as well!

From the moment we came to Castlemartyr for our first viewing, we were sold by the very warm welcome from Treavor. As we were originally supposed to get in married in 2020 but had to postpone due to covid, we found the staff so accommodating and supportive. Jackie was always at the other end of

Our wedding day was everything we dreamed of and more and that was most definitely down to Cormack, Treavor, Jason, Breffni and Jackie. The meal was flawless and the waiting staff on the night were so attentive and nothing was an issue.
Highly recommend to everyone and we can't wait to return.

I'm struggling to put into words just how wonderful our wedding day was at Castlemartyr Resort. We got engaged during lockdown and didn't have an opportunity to visit the resort before booking, but every one of our vendors told us that the people at Castlemartyr would take good care of us - they

were right! Every single member of staff went above and beyond for us and our guests during our stay. Jackie, Sarah, Yvonne, the guys at reception, the General Manager, the staff at the Hunted Hog, the Spa staff... they were all so kind and welcoming. The service on the day of the wedding was impeccable! They were so organised and attention was paid to every detail. This is a beautiful venue with dedicated and experienced staff - I only wish I could do it all again!

From the first visit to our first anniversary stay, we as a couple - or when I dropped into the hotel with my mom or bridesmaids - we were treated like the only people that mattered on that day.
I was personally blown away by the attention, the kindness and generosity of the staff and hotel that

checked on us, supported us and catered to all our needs and in ways I never imagined across the days before, during and after our wedding.
Our entire family, friends and bridal parties complimented the hotel and staff, speaking about all the ways in which they were impressed during the wedding weekend and as the bride and groom it gave us a great sense of relief and satisfaction knowing that our guests had an equally amazing experience.
I cannot find the words to express how highly I would recommend this resort, the wedding coordinators, the menu, the bridal suite, the personal attendants, the general staff and the quality and atmosphere felt as you drive through the gate. It is more than special, it is remarkable and I can happily guarantee, it will be unforgettable.

My wife and myself were married and had our reception in Castlemartyr Resort. When we booked it we were hoping it would be a unique experience and we were not disappointed in the slightest. 4 times in 4 years we had to change our dates over Covid and the hotel accommodated us each time with no

hesitations. From Yvonne to Jackie to Maeve to Kay and everyone else we had the pleasure to meet, they all made our life so easy. The attention to detail, friendliness, professionalism were all top notch. The day itself, we honestly couldn't have asked for anything more. It went off like a dream from the moment we landed to the time we left. Our guests are still raving about the day and it will be a place them and us will never forget and will always have fantastic memories. I would recommend the place in a heartbeat. Thank you Castlemartyr Hotel.

Covid restrictions were still in place and the Castlemartyr ensured that everything went without a hitch and kept us updated prior to the wedding of any changes in regulations.

The food was amazing, and a large number of our guests commented on this as well as on the lovely location. The function room and the hotel rooms themselves were immaculate and a slice of pure luxury.

We chose Castlemartyr Resort for our wedding having visited fifteen other venues around Munster and the Castlemartyr Resort was heads and shoulders above the competition and is the perfect location for a wedding. We were so delighted with our day and the way it turned out. Jackie and the team were instrumental in ensuring it was a great day.

In December 2021 we had our beautiful wedding reception at Castlemartyr Resort. The team were wonderful to deal with and made it easy to plan (while in the UK and with the uncertainty of the pandemic). Our original date was 12/12/20 so we did have to postpone by a year.

Now that I have had a minute to sit down I just want to thank you all for the most magical weekend. I have made it very clear that I was apprehensive on the lead up to the wedding and honestly, from the bottom of my heart, I needn’t of worried.

Yvonne, Thank you for everything, thank you for taking our wedding on last minute, you were fantastic and Castlemartyr are lucky to have you.

Breffne, what can I say. THANK YOU for saving our wedding. Thank you for memorising every inch of our day and passing it on so that everything went without a hitch. From the minute you took over we knew our wedding was in safe hands.

We have had nothing but good reviews from all of our guests, the rooms, the lodges, the atmosphere, they have loved it all. Our wedding was perfect and we cannot wait to come back and visit again.

Thank you team Castlemartyr.

Brendan, the general manager, also ensured everything ran smoothly, we truly felt like VIPs. Junior was brilliant and was so helpful throughout the night. We had our ceremony outside the castle which was so beautiful. The food was absolutely fantastic, and many of our guests said it was one of the best venues they had been to for weddings. We wanted good food, good music, and good vibes for our wedding and the staff at Castlemartyr ensured we had just that. Not only is Castlemartyr Resort a stunning setting, with the beautiful castle, gorgeous Manor House, and modern ballroom, the staff are expertly trained and really are the best in the biz. Thank you to everyone there for giving us the best wedding we could have asked for!!

We would genuinely recommend Castlemartyr to anyone. We were looking for a venue that could offer a luxurious, relaxed atmosphere for us and our guests to enjoy and one that was professional and reputable enough such that planning the wedding would be as little stress and hassle as possible. We

found that and more to be true of Castlemartyr. The following became apparent right from our initial visit, when we first made our enquiries. The experience and warm nature of the team really fills you with confidence that your wedding day will be of the utmost quality, or at least it did for us and at every point thereafter we received 5 star treatment. Every query or request we had was promptly answered and dealt with. And ours were few, because in fairness, they already had everything in hand. Our menu tasting experience only fuelled our excitement further, and we availed of a preferential B&B rate on that occasion too, which we would highly recommend. Everything about the day went as planned, in a seamless nature. I think when you are left with that impression, that everything is where and how it should be, but you have no idea who did it or when it was done - it goes to demonstrate the efficiency of the team in Castlemartyr. We thank Sarah and Kay, and compliment the rest of the team on their super high standards - They are absolutely fantastic at what they do and lovely while they do it too! Moreover, our guests echo this, and haven't stopped telling us so since the wedding! Would highly recommend.

Our wedding at the Castlemartyr Resort Hotel was truly exceptional. Jackie's professionalism and excellent organisational skills made the preparation for our wedding day seamless. The venue itself was spectacular, with our overseas guests complimenting particularly the magnificent grounds and the

superb golf course. The staff on the day were highly efficient and nothing was too much trouble for them. We would like to particularly mention the concierge staff Trevor and Gerard for the excellent service they provided us during the weekend of our wedding and also to Kay for making sure everything ran smoothly on the day. The beautifully arranged Capel Suite, the magnificent food served on the day and the excellent attention to detail by the hotel staff made it a day to remember. We would highly recommend the Castlemartyr Resort Hotel as a wedding venue.

Sarah and the whole team at Castlemartyr really couldn't do enough for our big day. Every aspect came off perfectly, and this was no accident as we had everything planned down to a tee. Sarah had everything checklisted and made sure that we finalised our key decisions in time and in the right way.

She was always available for us and really helped to put us at ease when it came to any matter. The grounds are stunning, the accommodation is the height of comfort, the food and drink are all of top quality, and no matter what we needed there was always someone on hand to sort it out for us. We had three incredible days in Castlemartyr to make the most of the experience and every minute was worth it.

our wedding before covid, we experienced a few different changes with staff. The support and kindness that was shown to us by Jackie when we first postponed was beyond a job title, but rather a personal understanding and empathy towards the situation. We received the same graciousness when we had to postpone a second time. Picking a third date had its challenges and it was intense for a period of time. This left us a little deflated at the time. All was explained and clear when we heard of the take over. The pressure and uncertainty for managers at the time in the middle of a pandemic must have been very stressful. Five stars is not easy to achieve and its even more difficult to maintain. Congratulations to all who managed to keep a clear head and remain so upbeat and supportive during such an uncertain time. With the new take over, it feels like we have been on a journey with the hotel. We grew in momentum on the preparations for our wedding and so did the resort with all the improvements. As the months passed we were getting stronger as a couple and the resort was getting stronger as a destination. A little lesson in change and development, being positive even though it can be uncertain and a little shaky along the way. Reflecting back, entering into marriage has a similar journey. It's hard work getting there and hard work to maintain, but proves to come with a beautiful outcome. It takes a strong team and group of teams to run such an operation. This can only be achieved with strong leadership which is certainly the case here. I think the right team
of people are in charge and will bring much strength and success to the resort.

In the days after the wedding, we were inundated with stories from our guests about the little things the hotel staff had done in the background to ensure that everyone had a really enjoyable day and this was definitely a highlight for us too. From ensuring that we had nibbles while we were taking photos, to looking after younger and older guests who needed a bit of extra care, the hotel seamlessly managed these little details meaning that we could truly relax and enjoy the day. We had such a wonderful couple of days in Castlemartyr and we are already looking forward to our return trip!

the perfect relaxed setting and our guests ambled between the bar and the outdoor area.

The Ballroom is so perfect, isolated from the main hotel bars so that you truly feel like you have the place to yourself. The food received rave reviews from all of our guests, and the service staff were brilliant. A special shout-out to Kay the catering manager.

The accomodation for our guests was also lovely, with certain guests staying in the hotel and larger groups opting for the lodges. Both options were of the highest standards.

We held our day two in the Hunted Hog, a bar owned by the resort. This more casual setting was perfect for the guests that remained, we were lucky enough to have the weather to permit having food in their outdoor marquee, and later had music inside. This was ran perfectly by the staff, especially Barry.

All of the staff at Castlemartyr offered nothing short of top class service, from reception to Maeve in reservations.

We were truly made to feel like VIPs, and we genuinely couldn't recommend Castlemartyr any higher.

We cannot wait to visit again.

very special. Too many people to even mention! From the moment of even considering Castlemartyr as an option, we were never going to go elsewhere; not only are the grounds and venue amazing but the staff were incredible at every stage from planning, to the evening itself, and since thereafter. We have a young daughter who was with us one of the occasions we went to visit the hotel before the wedding and they treated our whole family with unbelievable generosity and kindness. Our wedding guests highlighted how amazing the experience and the food was on the day, not to mention the late breakfast the day after. We were made to feel special and I honestly couldn't fault anything. Living abroad, Jackie made the whole experience that much easier and pleasurable, coming up with ideas and overall reducing our stress levels! Now anytime we have a need to travel to Cork for any reason, Castlemartyr is always our first choice, we have stayed in contact with Jackie and the hotel, and even now they are as helpful as ever! Its a beautiful resort and I'd highly recommend Castlemartyr to anyone looking at wedding venues. They truly went above and beyond to make our day special, so much so we even had our guests comment on how great their staff were, along the food and facilities/resort.

welcoming Olivia only seven months prior to our wedding day. We only travelled three times to Ireland prior to the wedding so email and phone calls was all we could have to communicate. Having said that, Jackie and her team seem to have their computers glued to their hands. I doubt there was a time we had to wait for more than 1-2 hours for a reply. Each time the replies were detailed, accurate and reassuring. We quite took the back seat for a few weeks knowing Jackie had everything under control. This however resulted in us changing our minds on some details quite close to the wedding day... a wedding planners worst nightmare you'd imagine. The resort never made us feel unreasonable or uncomfortable with our requests and ALWAYS tried their best (and managed) to satisfy our desires. Even when it lashed up until one hour prior to the outdoor ceremony, the staff where locked and loaded and set up outdoors in record time. Yes, we were graced with enough dry weather to finish our ceremony. The pictures are awesome! The venue was beautifully set. There is a sense of privacy that separates you from the hotel guests, which was what we primarily looked for. My groomsmen/best man had quite the good life at the wedding - the resort were on top of things, most often kindly nudging me with the days schedule.. not intruding at all. The food and beverage service, is equal to no other in my opinion. None of this deceiving belly filling gimmicks we've all seen at weddings. Quality meats, fresh produce and an excellently well balanced menu. My guests still speak of our wedding. I would also add a 6th star category, 'Personal', which is what Castlemartyr has made this to be. Thankyou.

the celebrations as much as possible!) we decided to have a 3-day affair for our wedding. A major benefit to Castlemartyr is that it provided the ideal venue for this - we were able to have food and drinks with our guests in Castlemartyr both the night before the wedding, and the day after the wedding! Once we moved into Castlemartyr we did not have to leave - so even though our wedding was just 1 day, it felt like we got excellent value for money as we were actually around the venue for 4 days. Castlemartyr is the perfect wedding venue, for many reasons:

1 - Staff: The staff at Castlemartyr are so friendly, helpful and professional. From as far back as when we were enquiring about having our wedding in Castlemartyr, to staying there for our Wedding Tasting, right up until our Wedding Day weekend, all staff were so courteous and pleasant to deal with. All of our guests also found the staff to be so friendly and polite, and excellent at their jobs.

2 - Wedding Planner: When you book your wedding at Castlemartyr you are assigned a wedding planner - which is an excellent bonus. Our wedding planner was Elaine and she helped us with absolutely everything relating to the wedding reception. It was great to have someone there that you could rely on every step of the way. Elaine was a true professional, and it was clear that she loved her job which is nice to see. She went above and beyond for us!

3 - Grounds: Castlemartyr Resort is a stunning venue - our wedding photos and wedding video look like something right out of a bridal magazine as ALL areas are so picturesque!

In conclusion, I would highly recommend Castlemartyr to any couple looking for a 5 star wedding venue.

are second to none - particularly the fabulous Jackie Day who was our wedding planner, and Trevor and Kay who also helped to expertly manage the day. They were completely focused on making sure that we were relaxed and happy about things from the time of our initial visit to the hotel; right up to the wedding day itself and beyond. We organised our wedding while living abroad, which brought its own challenges, and they couldn't have been kinder and more understanding in all their dealings with us throughout.

We were particularly impressed by the warm welcome bestowed upon both of our families as they checked in the night before the wedding - we really felt completely at home straightaway and fully able to wind down after a busy week of organisation! Our guests all loved the food on the day; from the drinks reception canapes to the wedding meal itself and the snacks at midnight. The function room was just the right size - intimate and located away from the main body of the hotel so that we had privacy. There is also a beautiful spa, Italian restaurant and golf course so there were plenty of other facilities to enjoy over the weekend.

We organised our flowers and make-up with suppliers in the village of Castlemartyr so there are a lot of excellent wedding-related amenities close by as well. There are a great range of accommodation options available in the hotel - from suites to self-catering group lodges on the grounds - which provided great flexibility for our guests.

In summary, an absolutely fantastic venue which left us with charming memories of consummate professionalism, gentle generosity and good humour. Many thanks Castlemartyr!

and so well kept.

When we first met with the hotel in 2019 we knew we were going to be in good hands. Considering the difficulties around pandemic re plans and restrictions we believe we were proven right. Throughout all, the hotel remained professional, understanding and as flexible as possible. A much reduced wedding in terms of number than originally planned, it became the big wonderful day we hoped for nonetheless.

Couldn't recommend the Castlemartyr Resort more.

descended on the resort and had a fantastic evening in the Living Room where we all enjoyed Franchinis pizzas and drinks from the hugely helpful Khan and his staff.

On the wedding day itself, they went above and beyond to ensure ourselves and our guests had the most fantastic day imaginable. A special mention has to go to our fantastic coordinator Elaine, nothing was ever a problem and we always had serious laughs when we got together also, she did everything she possibly could to ensure we had a magical day and we really did!

The morning of the wedding was a little crazy as our photographer double booked us, but within seconds the Castlemartyr staff were on the phones and emails trying to sort it out and left no stone unturned until we had a photographer. We had the lovely Jason drive us to and from the venue to the church and he was an absolute gentleman and really calmed the nerves. Once the crisis was averted the day was truly spectacular, the service, the food, the atmosphere just everything was amazing and that is down to the professionalism and kindness of the staff at Castlemartyr.

The food was absolutely fantastic and all of our guests are still talking about its sheer excellence. A huge thank you to all the staff at Castlemartyr but in particular Elaine, Raouf, Kay, Donagh, Trevor and Brendan. Our wedding day exceeded all of our expectations and really was the best day of our lives. Thank you all so much! Dervla

Jackie Day was our wedding coordinator and nothing was ever an issue or a problem to her, she literally answered all of our questions within hours / days and always helped with suggestions and advice. She was a pleasure to deal with and so witty - a credit to Castlemartyr.

On Friday we had our church rehearsal and had family and friends stay over. Jackie booked out 'The Living Room' for us for the evening where we had finger food and drinks. The cocktails are absolutely amazing! On the Saturday, the wedding morning, everyone was on hand to make sure we had everything we needed and went above and beyond my expectations. Breakfast, brunch, prosecco and strawberries were brought to the room for me and my bridal party. Any last minute hiccups were sorted with ease and everything was just perfect.

The arrival reception provided for us and our guests was amazing; canapes, prosecco, cider punch. The evening 5-course meal was the highlight for many guests! The quality of the food was outstanding with steaks cooked absolutely perfectly.

On Sunday morning, we had our own banqueting room with table service breakfast for all of our guests, where the room was ours right up until 1pm. Guests used the leisure and spa facilities, ate in the bar, and had drinks in the bar for the day.

Our guests are still talking about the staff at Castlemartyr, how they were treated, and how they cannot wait to return for a future visit. Many said it was the best wedding venue they have ever been to. I cannot thank the staff at Castlemartyr enough, genuinely. It was the most perfect weekend and I think about it every day! Julie X x

Huge shout out though has to go to the greatest wedding planner- Elaine! We always came away with smiles on our faces and sore sides from laughing so hard with her she is just brilliant! She had every detail organised and was always beyond professional and kind. She made our day the greatest. It felt like we were being welcomed by a friend when we arrived to Castlemartyr on the day which was so lovely. Sincere thanks to her and Kay who ensured everything went off without a hitch from that afternoon and well into to the wee hours of the morning.

The hotel does really look after not only the bride and groom but all of the guests as well and we received so many nice compliments from our guests on how they were treated.

with at all times. Jackie is an expert in wedding co-ordination, and while I am a perfectionist, Jackie on the day was on hand at all times and thought of the little things that I forgot – coffee, prosecco, light brunch etc. brought to the bridal suite where it was very much welcomed by us all as we had an early start that morning. I know that she did so much more on the day that I didn't see and I will be forever grateful to Jackie. We can honestly say, hand on heart, that our wedding day was the best day of our lives and it was all made possible by Jackie and the team at Castlemartyr. I even think Jackie had a say in the weather as the sun shone that day and our dream of having our ceremony outside was fulfilled (I arrived at the venue 2 days before the wedding with my chief bridesmaid and the weather was dismal, especially on the eve of the wedding). I may have planned our special day but it was the execution on the day by Jackie and the wider team that really wowed both Donnagh and I. I would have those 4 days back in a heartbeat and at Castlemartyr. Our family and friends were also treated exceptionally well that weekend, as we all travelled from Clare the majority stayed 2/3 nights, and they have all commented on the friendliness of the staff, the service, the food and the standard of accommodation. We also want to give a special mention to Kay and Trevor, who went above and beyond, not only that weekend, but also for the times before the wedding when we visited the hotel to stay or on day trips with our families to show them the venue, you both have always been so welcoming. Brendan you have built an amazing team at Castlemartyr and we wish you all continued success.

The grounds gave us the perfect setting for our photos, the Capel suite gave us a beautiful setting for our meal, and the staff delivered what we can only describe as a masterclass in customer service. We cannot commend Castlemartyr Resort enough for everything they have done for us. We would advise anyone looking to have a wedding to visit them.

We had the most wonderful wedding day at Castlemartyr Resort. From start to finish, the staff couldn't have treated us any better and everything went so perfectly on the day. The food was amazing, and the service was excellent. Jackie took care of every little detail and made sure our day was

exactly what we wanted it to be. Her attention to detail was fantastic. She was such a great help in the lead up to the wedding, as well as on the day itself. We had one change in wedding date, and Jackie made sure this was never an issue for us, and that the change was very stress free. I would have no hesitation is recommending Castlemartyr Resort for a wedding venue. It was exceptional.

Our wedding at Castlemartyr Resort was everything we expected and more. The staff were so friendly and super helpful. They made sure the day ran perfectly. All of our friends and family were blown away with how the venue looked, and how good the staff were.

We had the pleasure of hosting our wedding reception at Castlemartyr Resort, on Saturday the 10th of July 2021. We had a delightful experience from our first contact with the hotel last November, up until our wedding day. Our first experience with Castlemartyr Resort was with Danielle Murhilly

(events management), just after we got engaged. She was extremely helpful and was genuinely excited for us as we started to plan our wedding. Danielle passed us onto their outstanding wedding planner, Jackie Day, in December 2020. I am slightly embarrassed to say that I exchanged 240 emails with Jackie from then until July 2021! Jackie was at all times warm, friendly, helpful and extremely efficient! There was no request that Jackie didn’t do her utmost to fulfil. Wedding planning during Covid-19 was stressful at times, but Jackie assisted us to navigate the continued changes to restrictions and guidelines. Her attention to detail shone through on the day of the wedding, when our plans were executed with perfection! We had truly magical day with their wonderful staff. On the morning of the wedding, the bridal party attended the spa for hair and makeup. This truly was a lovely experience and started the day with excitement. The royal treatment continued throughout our wedding day. The food was incredible and lots of guests complemented the menu after the big day. The rooms were beautiful, particularly the bridal suite (which we spent 3 nights in). We would highly recommend Castlemartyr Resort as a wedding venue.

The wedding coordinator, Sarah, along with Jackie were so attentive. Nothing was a problem on the day or the lead up to the wedding. Martin, in the bell tower, made sure we wanted for nothing. We felt so spoiled by all the staff, in particular Rebecca and Luke. What an incredible experience. The

We got married at Castlemartyr Resort in June 2021. We had an absolutely fantastic stay from start to finish. The staff could not have been more accommodating, even going as far as providing special orders for our guests. We had 25 guests in the Garden Room, and it was set up so beautifully for our

special day. Our son was included in many ways, especially in the lead up, which meant a lot to us. Everyone had a fantastic time and felt very safe. The food was amazing and our guests really enjoyed the whole experience. We could not have done it wihout the amazing help of Jackie Day, Gérard, Chris and all the team in Castlemartyr. They organised everything with very little time, and the day went off without a hitch. Our drinks reception was outside in the gardens, and Ciara who was serving us was so friendly and fun. We stayed for a second day and night, just relaxing in the gardens and taking it all in. It was such a beautiful experience for us and we couldn't be happier. We just can't wait to get back now!

Colin and I fell in love with where we got married, Castlemartyr Resort, in December 2020. It was an intimate wedding (restricted to max 25 at that time), but absolutely perfect. Even though the wedding was small, there was no mistaking from the moment we arrived that we got the royal treatment from

Jackie and all the staff at the resort. Our whole family enjoyed the day, and their extended stay in the hotel. The hotel exudes a warm and friendly atmosphere, not to mention top class facilities and food. It is the perfect combination for an intimate wedding breakaway. There is no need to leave with a spa, hair and makeup in the hotel, the church two minutes away, "the village florist", local cake makers and photographers, and not to mention the resident piano player. Mary, the piano player, played through the evening, even with some festive tunes for the little ones! I would highly recommend this resort for a wedding. Thank you to Jackie and all the staff for making our day everything we wanted.
Colin & Josephine.

I cannot thank Castlemartyr Resort and Sarah Flynn enough for all they did for our wedding. I provided all the decor and they set up everything to exactly how I wanted. The food, service and staff were amazing. Not one guest could fault any part of the day. We highly recommend this hotel if you want

times, and with the help of Castlemartyr, the stress and worry was taken out of this for us. Nothing was a problem for them, and they helped us to plan around the restrictions. We cannot thank the staff enough for all their wonderful service, support and help throughout the planning of our big day. Of course, a big thanks as well for the amazing personal touches they provided on our wedding day. We were made to feel so special. All of our guests were extremely well looked after, and everyone is still talking about how wonderful the food, service and venue was. Thank you so much Castlemartyr for helping us to have the most special and memorable day.

itself, the garden room (for our scaled down COVID wedding) looked like a dream. Our guests commented that the food was some of the best they had ever had at a wedding, and we completely agree! We would like to give a special mention to Chris Harold, who on the night, we felt went above and beyond for us. Although it was not the wedding we originally planned, Castlemartyr Resort made sure we didn't feel hindered by restrictions, and that the day felt relaxed and special. We wouldn't change a thing about the day, and would have no hesitation in recommending Castlemartyr Resort to family and friends.

managed to have the ceremony outside, and everything was beautifully set-up. The wedding decor in the Living Room and Garden Room were also lovely. We booked at the spa the next day, and were allowed to check out later in the afternoon, which I really appreciated. I also enjoyed the lovely breakfast. I'll definitely go back for my one year anniversary next year.

From the moment we got engaged we knew we wanted to get married at Castlemartyr Resort. Coming over from London and visiting a number of stunning venues across Ireland, Castlemartyr stood out for two reasons: it is a truly spectacular venue and the staff were just so warm & welcoming.

originally supposed to get married in May 2020 with 150 guests coming from all over the globe. The events team were really great in providing us with different options and showed tremendous flexibility in adapting to the needs of both our families, they worked with us to hold a smaller, more intimate wedding in September 2020. As our coordinator Jackie Day promised, it would be a “relaxed and magical family day” and it was exactly that.

The big day itself was so dreamy. The ceremony was outdoors by the gardens & fountain followed by a reception & dinner in the Garden Room which was just stunning! The events team had every single detail covered and they ensured the day was completely stress free. The staff were so professional & welcoming and made our guests feel safe and comfortable.

To Jackie, Kaye, Elaine, Trevor and the all the team at Castlemartyr, from the bottom of my hearts we cannot thank you enough for everything you did for us leading up to & on the day of the wedding.

Special thank you also to the lovely talented ladies at the Spa (Caroline & Alice) who did my bridal hair and make up, never have I had so many compliments!
