At the Garryvoe Hotel we've been hosting weddings since the first day we opened 50 years ago. Hosting your wedding is such a major part of what we do that you will work directly with  Aidan the General Manager, Ben the Deputy GM and Eoghan our Banqueting Manager. 

The Garryvoe Hotel is also approved to host Civil Weddings and Civil Partnership Ceremonies. We have a number of rooms suitable for civil ceremonies and should couples also wish a spiritual or humanist blessing element as part of their ceremony, we are happy to arrange that. (We do not charge for room hire or set up for civil ceremonies).

 

It's your wedding: you will deal with one person, who will sit down with you all the way to listen, guide, and help in every possible way. And that same person is on the floor at all times during your big day. We can cater for smaller, intimate weddings or weddings of up to 300 guests. We can do set menus or á la carte. We set a budget with you – and there are no hidden costs. Our weddings are all about you; you will not notice us, but we will be watching every detail, quietly behind the scenes...

Hello,

It's long overdue but I want to email to say a massive thanks to everyone at Garryvoe Hotel, for making our kind of different wedding what it was, and feel so so special! Especially I want to mention Ben, Laura and Aiden who we dealt with the most.

We did things differently and had our

own private intimate wedding, but it's definitely the way forward with everything going on in the world and I can't even express how important you made us feel and how easy going everything was when dealing with you.
All my family said, after the few days with you, how genuine and helpful the staff were and it was the best hotel service they've ever received.

Thanks a million for everything,

Roisin and Eoin Purcell.

I can't recommend Garryvoe Hotel enough! The hotel itself is beautiful and such a treat to look out the window from the library and see the sea. The management team (Stephen, Aidan, Ben) are absolutely fantastic and some of the nicest people you will meet. Nothing is too much trouble and they went

above and beyond for our wedding. The lead up to our wedding wasn't the easiest due to covid-19, but they supported us every step of the way and even helped with the decorating of the room prior to our big day! On the day itself they worked seamlessly in the background to ensure everything went smoothly and as planned. The day went off without a hitch and all thanks to the wonderful management team and staff in Garryvoe Hotel. We can't say enough good things about Garryvoe Hotel and there is a reason it is so difficult to find a Friday or Saturday In Garryvoe Hotel which is available to get married - it is just a gorgeous venue.

MYSELF & LAURA COULD NOT HAVE ASKED FOR ANYTHING MORE FROM THE AMAZING EXPERIENCE WE RECEIVED FROM GARRYVOE. FROM THE PLEASURE OF DEALING WITH AIDAN THROUGHOUT THE CRAZY MONTHS OF 2020 WHO ALWAYS MADE US FEEL AT EASE TO THE INCREDBILE AND WARMING STAFF ON THE DAY. ALL OUR GUESTS COULD NOT SPEAK

HIGHLY ENOUGH OF THE VENUE, NOT JUST FROM THE STUNNING VIEWS AND DECOR OF THE HOTEL BUT OF EVERYONE SINGLE EMPOLYEE THAT THEY INTERACTED WITH COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER. EVERYONE FELT AT EASE AND VERY WELCOME.

WE TRULY RECIEVED A 5* TREATMENT FROM THE MOMENT WE BOOKED OUR WEDDING 18MONTHS IN ADVANCE TO THE DAY ITSELF - THANK YOU ALL AND WE WILL MOST DEFIANTLY SEE YOU AGAIN IN THE FUTURE.

Hi Aidan, Ben and team,

We had our wedding on the 29th of August and honestly it was the best day of our lives. Despite the restrictions and lower numbers, every single guest commented that it was much more personal and the way the ballroom was set up, you would never know that it was a smaller

wedding. We had our meal earlier, still had live music and plenty of dancing - no one even noticed the earlier finish time! With lower numbers (having originally planned for a wedding of 200/250) we personally had so much more time to spend chatting with family and friends -we wouldn’t change a thing! The food, location and service was amazing, the staff were exemplary - a special mention to Aidan, Ben, Liz and Jason.

Can’t wait to come back to Garryvoe for our anniversary!

The easiest part of organising our wedding was dealing with Garryvoe Hotel. The early stages of planning a wedding can be overwhelming. There seems to be a million things to organise. We arrived unannounced to Garryvoe while out looking at various venues. Despite not having any appointment we met

with a member of the management staff. We really did not know what we were doing but they managed to break it all down in a simple and concise manner. This instantly put our mind at ease and when we finally chose Garryvoe we were not disappointed. The venue itself is a gorgeous location with plenty of photo opportunities on the beach. The Library Room is amazing, homely and warm for a Christmas wedding. We assume a summer wedding would also be terrific with the beautiful seaside view and beach. The reception room is very good for large and small weddings. By the bar in the reception room they have plenty of comfortable sofas and chairs for guests after the meal. The bridal suite is very impressive with lovely views of the bay. This was very important for photos as the weather in December was not great. At every stage in the process the staff were professional, polite and very accommodating. This very much reduced the levels of stress we experienced in the lead up to the big day. The wedding rates for guests were also very good and this was important for us. Other venues stipulate that you need to fill x number of rooms. This is not the case with Garryvoe and as a result there was no pressure on us in that respect. On the day the staff were terrific. Polite to each and every one of our guests and extremely accommodating. All through the day the staff were available to us in anything we required. The whole day went without any hitch or problem. The drinks reception in the Library Room went down very well and Garryvoe were flexible in what drinks they provided. The dinner reception was magnificent. The food was gorgeous and everyone was extremely happy with the menu.
