Daniel and I got married on the 11th of September 2020. From the moment we got engaged I had my heart set on the Connemara coast hotel. Once we visited the coast and met with Darius & Chloe Daniel was in full agreement. Then the excitement and fun of planning the wedding begun.

Chloe is such a

fantastic wedding coordinator ensuring no stone is left unturned. We knew immediately we were in safe hands. Similar to most 2020 wedding couples our journey of getting married was not without stress but Chloe was always at hand to answer any queries we had.

As a hotel the Connemara coast hotel is a dream. From the beautiful and private aran suite ballroom to the friendly and mannerly staff, the delicious food, the marvellous bedrooms, to the outstanding and amazing views of Galway bay, I simply cannot fault the hotel. The Connemara coast hotel will always hold a special place in our hearts having created such fantastic memories there. We really enjoyed all of our pre-wedding trips to the hotel and look forward to visiting the coast again in the future.

It is a beautifully balanced hotel being so close to Galway city and also having that wonderful Connemara feel. It is equally classic and modern. The food is exquisitely cooked and to the liking of all guests. The staff are an absolute credit to the hotel and the local area - always presenting in the most professional manner and predominantly being from the local area.

Our wedding was an absolute success and I thank the Connemara coast hotel for making that happen. We received so many compliments in relation to the hotel staff, the beautiful aran suite ballroom and the food served at our wedding. We would highly recommend the Connemara coast hotel to any couple considering it as their wedding venue.

We had a wonderful weekend celebrating our wedding in the Connemara Coast Hotel in October.

We fell in love with the hotel and its surroundings from our first viewing and knew we would have our special day there. We loved that the ballroom is in a separate area of the hotel and has its own

separate entrance. The views from the ballroom are stunning and the fact we could use the rest of the hotel, the gazebo and its surrounds for our wedding pictures was a major plus for us.

Originally, we were to have a much bigger wedding but due to Covid19 we had to rethink our plans. We had to downsize our numbers with a week to go which did not make the journey easy! However all the help, support, advice and time we received from Chloe the wedding coordinator made our wedding journey that bit easier and took the extra stress away.

On the day, all the staff were very friendly, welcoming, and helpful, something which all our guests commented on. The quality of the food and service was fantastic. We were blessed with the weather and got stunning pictures both outside and inside.

Thank you to all the staff for such a lovely weekend. Special thanks to Mark the Bar Manager for all his help and advice along the way and lastly to Chloe, thank you for all you done for us, from the surprise extra little touches on the day, to always being at the end of the phone with help and advice, we truly appreciated it all.

We had such a lovely day celebrating our wedding at the Connemara Coast Hotel. Chloe, the wedding coordinator, was a dream to work with from the start. We had intended to have a bigger wedding and had planned for that originally but Covid 19 hit and things changed. We were supported by Chloe and

management in the new plan and the smaller group and they really did everything they could to help make it a special day. We were so happy to be able to use the gazebo (which was by the sea) for the ceremony. It was so beautiful and such a perfect setting. The views are really fantastic. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming and helpful too. There was a playground at the hotel which was a huge hit with the children at the wedding. Although the day was different to what we had planned, we couldn't have asked for anything more from Chloe and all the staff.

We had the most amazing day celebrating our wedding in the Connemara Coast Hotel. The drinks reception area and ballroom is in a separate wing of the hotel with its own private entrance - we really liked this feature of the hotel. The ballroom has breathtaking views of the Wild Atlantic Way as do

many of the bedrooms. The hotel, inside and out, offer lovely photo opportunities; from the grand staircase in the lobby leading up to the beautiful mezzanine and the rugged beach area with the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean.
We got fantastic compliments from our guests on the standard of food and excellent service that was offered throughout the night.

Above all, the staff in the Connemara Coast were so accommodating to all of our needs and requests. Everyone in the bar, restaurant and reception were so kind and helpful in the lead up to the big day and Jonathan, the General Manager, was very welcoming and generous with his time. Chloe, the wedding coordinator, is one of a kind. She made our wedding planning journey so enjoyable and stress free. She was always there with advice and help when we needed her and was very professional in everything she did for us. Thanks again Chloe!!

Thank you so much for making our special day one that we will remember always.

The Connemara Coast is a wonderful venue for a wedding reception. The views are amazing. It's close to Galway city, but yet has a real Connemara vibe and you feel as if you have really gotten away, without having the effort of traveling far. The views of Galway Bay and the Burren are wonderful and

the perfect backdrop for celebrations and photos. The hotel has ample accommodation and a spa for those guests who want to chill out in the hot tub while overlooking the Atlantic. On a clear day, the Aran Islands are visible. The hotel staff are wonderful and accommodating. Chloe, the wedding co-ordinator is top-notch! No question will go unanswered. She replies and deals with every query, which is what you want when you are planning a wedding! We got great compliments from our guests about the food and wine. We all really enjoyed our wedding banquet!
