The Connemara Coast Hotel exceeded our expectations and made our wedding day even better than we could have imagined!

From the initial meetings with Chloe and Brian through the interactions with Jonathan and all of the staff throughout the journey, we could not have been happier with the service

and welcoming we received.

The venue itself is a recently refurbished, high quality and well maintained hotel with scenery of Galway Bay that speaks for itself and only added to our guests experiences.

We loved being at a wedding venue that had staff from the locality and you could feel the family like atmosphere in the hotel and it made us and all of our guests feel at home.

The wedding room itself is backed onto a view of Galway Bay that will have your guests in awe when they see it and it comfortably accommodated our 214 guests and the adjacent bar was non stop throughout the day but was well staffed to cope with large numbers.

The food standards at the meal time, breakfast times, in the front bar and at our after party BBQ were all exceptional and the delivery of them was impressive considering there were 3 weddings on the same weekend as ours.

With regards to accommodation of special requests Chloe, our wedding coordinator, could not have been more helpful and almost anything we asked for was given a "Not a problem" response. We were allowed the freedom to make our day special and unique to us and the set up staff of the Connemara Coast done a great job of setting up the room and all of our unique items, even though it was outside their job scope.

Cannot rate our experience highly enough! As a couple, we wanted a venue that was a little bit more "country" than your castle venues and city based hotel venues and the Connemara Coast provided the perfect blend of a high quality hotel with fantastic rooms and roots in the community of Furbo in Galway allowing a better atmosphere for all of our guests!

From the moment we walked through the doors of the Connemara Coast Hotel, we knew we had to have our wedding reception there. This hotel has everything, it is fabulous throughout, it has so many great locations for photos within the hotel, especially on the stunning staircase and it has the most

picturesque landscape for outdoor photographs and this fabulous view is also the backdrop view from the function room. The staff are so friendly and professional, the Wedding Manager Chloe O Neill is one of the nicest people you will ever meet, she has such a calm presence and is an absolute pleasure to deal with. Her kindness and understanding made it so easy to plan the perfect day. And it was the perfect day in every way, Chloe was there to meet us on arrival and to ensure everything ran smoothly throughout the day, the function room looked magnificent, she is simply the best and it's no surprise that this hotel won Best Wedding Venue in Connacht 2021.
No words can fully describe just how fantastic the Connemara Coast Hotel is, it has a magic that draws you back and we return every chance we get.
Thank you to all the wonderful management and staff of the Connemara Coast Hotel for your dedication, hard work and kindness and for making our wedding day the best day ever. We wouldn't change a single thing.
Continued Success and Good Wishes to you all.

We cannot speak highly enough of the service we received from the Connemara Coast Hotel, both in the build-up to our wedding and on the day itself!

The events and kitchen team pulled out all the stops to accommodate any and all of our special requests and even suggested some of their own so that

our day was as special to us as possible (e.g. incorporating elements of Italian cuisine into the menu as we had an Italian/Irish wedding).

On the wedding day itself, it felt fantastic to be in the hands of real professionals. From the moment we stepped through the door, they handles everything for us, effortlessly guiding us from one part of the day to the next while also ensuring we took time out for ourselves to enjoy every moment as much as possible. They also effectively liaised with all our suppliers on the day, like the band, photo booth and many more. Everything came together perfectly.

At very short notice on our part, they also provided us with a lovely less formal space to enjoy ourselves on 'Day 2'.

All in all, we couldn't have asked for anything more from the day and from the team at the hotel. We are so thankful to them for the most amazing weekend and for helping us celebrate with our family and friends! We would highly recommend Connemara Coast Hotel to anyone!

We ust wanted to thank everyone in Connemara Coast Hotel for our fairytale wedding. The staff took care of every detail and we loved every second of our special day. I can’t tell you how many people said what a beautiful setting the Connemara Coast Hotel has. Thank you to Connemara Coast Hotel and

their team for the perfect day.

This is a very beautiful place with a fantastic views of the ocean.

Our winter wedding was perfect. The Connemara Coast Hotel team were accommodating and enthusiastic throughout the planning process. We were able to add as much or as little of our own personal touches as we wanted. When our wedding was postponed due to lockdown, they were flexible and supportive and we never lost hope that our day would still be amazing. It’s the perfect location for amazing photos, so many great spots inside and out. Everyone loved the food! Literally nothing bad to say about this incredible venue

The staff went above and beyond to help us and the whole day and night went so well, and the venue looked amazing! All the staff did an excellent job always answering our emails and questions and were very kind and welcoming to us both and all our guests. Our host for the day was also unreal! She went above and beyond to help us out with anything and was very accommodating with any changes and keeping everything else on schedule. So thank you Chloe. The food was also amazing and we had so much excellent feedback from our guests about the food from start to finish and how great the room was set up and the Connemara Coast Hotel as a whole. Would definitely recommend!

We just had our civil ceremony at Connemara Coast Hotel on Friday 19th of November, and it couldn't have been more perfect! We started planning our wedding December, 2020, and the country was in lockdown, but as we are from Connemara we were able to visit the venue. We both fell in love with it, and

the location was just perfect for us. We didn't look at any other hotel once we saw the Connemara Coast Hotel.

We were planning on a small intimate wedding, restrictions or not, and had 12 for our ceremony, and 60 for our reception. Both function rooms for the civil ceremony and reception were beautifully decorated, very elegant and classic just how I wanted. The views out of the function room are amazing.

We used the gazebo for wedding shots, and I'm sure they will come out amazing. We had Santa call the guest for dinner, which was a nice treat for the kiddies. The food was excellent, and it came out quick, with lovely presentation. No one's wine glass was empty, the staff came around quick enough to top it up. The hotel staff couldn't do enough for us. The suite we had was beautifully decorated, and very spacious which was great for me as I used it to get ready in. There was plenty of room for the hairdresser and make-up artist to do their thing. I have had people say to me they are going to look into Connemara Coast Hotel now, after being at my wedding. It really is a lovely venue for a wedding. I can't recommend it enough.
