Hi Aidan and Ben,

On behalf of myself and Eoin, we want to thank you both and the hotel staff for making our wedding day such a wonderful day. You pulled out all of the stops and we could not find fault with any part of the weekend.

We have been hearing nothing but compliments from our

friends and families since. From the food on the day and the food for day 2 to the service, everything was exceptional.

All of our guests were delighted with their rooms and the service throughout the hotel.

I want to say an extra thank you to you both for being so understanding and accommodating over the last 2 years with all of the date changes. Nothing was ever too big of a problem for you.

You really made our day a memorable one and I am sure our guests will be talking about your hotel for some time to come!!

Thank you both so much! We look forward to returning soon!

I think my veil was left behind in reception so I will call down to collect it over the weekend.

Warm regards,

Lauren and Eoin Hourihan

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.

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!

We looked at many hotels but settled on Garryvoe. The best decision we could have made. Stephen, Aidan and their team were superb. They looked after us and our guests so well. They made us feel like our wedding was the only wedding that mattered. Thanks guys for helping to make our day so special.

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.

During the planning phase of our wedding, we visited many venues across Cork to get a feel for what would be the best fit for our wedding day. From the moment we landed at the beautifully picturesque setting that the Garryvoe Hotel is located in, we knew that we were on the right track. We were

greeted by Aidan, the general manager, who guided us through all the fantastic offerings of this hotel while we relaxed in the beautiful surrounds of the hotel library.
We were so impressed by the hotel & it’s staff that we confirmed a date there and then. We left excited and confident that we had just made a great decision.
During the preparations for our big day, it was clear that every effort was going to be made by Aidan, Ben and their team to deliver our day with great professionalism. It was clear that they take pride in the service that they provide at the Garryvoe hotel.
Our families received a great welcome by all the staff the night before the wedding and the lovely relaxed atmosphere at the hotel really helped to ease the nerves for the groom.
On the big day, everything flowed seamlessly and we felt so assured by the happy faces of our guests that they were enjoying the wares of Garryvoe hotel. All of the staff went above and beyond in accommodating our needs and those of our guests, including helping to celebrate the brides 30th birthday.
One of the hardest decisions along the way was picking our menu as the food options available all sounded divine. It didn’t disappoint on the day and has been complimented many times since.
A particular mention must be given to the bridal suite. The luxurious suite had a sauna, steam room and a balcony overlooking Garryvoe beach which made a great setting for some photos. Although we hadn’t banked on the bride’s veil being swept from her head and onto the hotels roof. Great credit to Aidan and Ben on the rescue operation that they carried out.
Garryvoe hotel exceeded our expectations and we couldn’t recommend it highly enough

Even one of the ladies during dinner took time to talk to my 4 year old nephew at the top table. The service at the Garryvoe hotel is exceptional and their attention to detail is incredible! Thank you Garryvoe hotel for making our wedding so special! It will always be a very special hotel to us!

To say our wedding day was amazing is an understatement. The staff at the hotel were a pleasure to deal with on the day and leading up to it. Even when i was emailing them 3 times a day they were always able to help us out and able to sort out whatever we needed. Aidan Ben and Eoin were so easy

how do I even begin to start to write this review? Garryvoe Hotel was an absolute Dream Venue for our wedding. From start to finish I could not fault one thing. I have been going to Garryvoe Hotel scene I was a child so it always had a special place in my heart, the beach across the way you

Read More

couldn’t ask for a more beautiful back drop for a wedding. When we first walked in to enquire about our wedding we knew we where in good hands so welcoming from the very first day. Every single member of staff at the Garryvoe Hotel are so kind and so friendly. Ben our wedding coordinator was on hand for all my emails no matter how small the detail he was there to give me a speedy response and help me along the way.
We celebrate my husbands 30th birthday the March before our wedding at the Garryvoe and used this opportunity to stay over and do our food tasting, once again they knocked it out of the park and we knew for absolutely certain we had made the best decision.
Finally we arrived at the Garryvoe Hotel after becoming Mrs Lordan and was absolutely blown away. Everything I had imagined and more. Ben was there to meet us at our red carpet arrival welcoming us with champagne to begin our celebrations. My eyes where lite up as he walked us into the ballroom to show us, it was beautiful exactly as we wanted and could not of been happier.
Our reception was in full swing in the library of the Garryvoe everyone was having a wonderful time and the bubbles where flowing.After being announced as the new Mr and Mrs Lordan and welcomed by the Manager of the hotel it was time for the meal.I can honestly say to this day my family and friends are still talking about the food at my wedding. Very single bite was mouth wateringly delicious. I could not fault a thing. After dinner we danced the night away with at this wonderful Venue. The next day and the days to follow we stayed at the hotel and honestly could not of felt more like royalty thank you so much to all the staff at Garryvoe Hotel.

Aidan and the team at Garryvoe Hotel provided us with an exceptional wedding experience from the very first day of planning.

We asked about the possibility of using the Samphire Restaurant for the wedding meal as we were looking to create a relaxed and intimate dining experience to celebrate our

special day with family and friends.

While this would be a first at Garryvoe, Aidan and the team were very open to the idea and created a fabulous dining experience for us and our guests in an amazing setting with bar area and library venue adjacent for the evening celebrations afterwards.

Everything went so smoothly on the day thanks to Aidan and his team who oversaw every detail with the greatest of care and attention. The meal was superbly delicious!

All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day and were so complimentary of the amazing sense of occasion for both the ceremony and reception, warm hospitality and personal touch provided at the Garryvoe.

Garryvoe Hotel-
We had our wedding in the Garryvoe Hotel on the October Bank Holiday weekend and we had the most amazing day. Our friends and family are still in awe of the venue, service and food. Aidan was fabulous to deal with from start to finish and pulled out all the stops.
We felt like such

Read More

a special couple and we were always welcomed with open arms when we visited the hotel.
We met Ben and Annmarie for our tasting and they were brilliant with suggestions and just great fun, they made the whole experience so enjoyable.
The hotel didn’t say no to one request and went above and beyond with set up for our special day.
On the day Liz and Eoghain looked after the top table and what a brilliant duo.
Liz knew everybody by name, remembered what everybody was drinking and didn’t leave a glass half full with topping it up, she brought out the extra crispy beef for my Dad as she knew it was his favourite. Liz is an absolute credit and I’m delighted she was nominated by the hotel for a recent customer service award.
Eoghain was great checking in and serving seconds - very important!
The food was FANTASTIC, thank you to all the chefs, porters & servers who were involved in our meal.
Thank you to the bar staff for looking after myself, the bride, with my cocktail request!
Thank you to housekeeping for dropping favours to every single bedroom.
Thank you to the front office team for looking after all our guests rooms and multiple emails!
Thank you to Mr.Belton for saying hello & wishing us well.
And a massive thank you again to Aidan!

The drinks reception, the ballroom, the reception were all gorgeous and lent so well to a magical day. All of our guests were blown away.
I am so impressed with the little touches, including a Christmas card with a lunch voucher received this week.
I can not recommend the Garryvoe hotel and all of its staff enough for your wedding or any special occasion.
We are happy to be regulars here now and look forward to celebrating many more occasions in the warm & welcoming Garryvoe Hotel.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything.

Dear Aidan, Ben, Eoghan and Stephen.

I really don't know how I can express my thanks into a review! Your wedding team was amazing from the first day we walked into the hotel, to when we checked out after our wedding. You made planning the wedding so easy, no question was too silly or too small.

Read More

We really trusted the advice you gave us because you have such a good reputation.

On the actual wedding day, you gave us so much attention, you'd think we were the only wedding couple to ever be in your care! The food was amazing and the free-flow wine was kept going generously, as we requested. We were looked after brilliantly by Liz, who felt like one of the family at the end of the weekend. All our wedding guests were raving about the hotel, they kept saying how it was one of the most gorgeous wedding hotels they were at- and we have to agree!! The Christmas decorations were stunning and got everyone in the festive mood!

Thank you all so much. You really made our day special and looked after us and our guests extremely well. We will be back to stay again!!

Regards,
Sarah + Brian O Mara

What can I say about the Garryvoe Hotel and the staff that work there?

OUTSTANDING; AMAZING; UNBEATABLE.

Honestly, our wedding could not have been any better. We definitely chose the right hotel for our venue.

We had everything here, from getting ready, the ceremony, to the reception. The

rooms were brilliant and so spacious. Our ceremony room, it was so amazing, it really did make my jaw drop (literally). The main bar for our drinks reception was amazing and the ballroom was just unbelievable.

The food was so delicious, I could not fault it in any way. The way the rooms were decorated and organised was beyond anything I could have imagined.

The Bridal Suite, juat wow. It really is such a sight. What an amazing room. I honestly would have stayed there forever.

The staff were the best part of this outstanding hotel. They really deserve our gratitude. They really went above and beyond any expectations we could have had. They were so accommodating, kind, down to earth, and just the most helpful and nicest people you could ever meet.

If you are considering having your wedding in a hotel, this is the hotel. I can't ever imagine having our wedding anywhere else. If I could relive our wedding day for the rest of my life, I would never choose anywhere else as our venue.

Thank you so much to all the staff of the Garryvoe Hotel for making our day so special and memorable.

If I could give this hotel a higher rating than 5, I would. But, I really don't think any number would do it justice. We will most definitely be back.

morning after the wedding and there was absolutely no hidden extras.

The bridal suite is stunning, and we are excited to stay there again as a complimentary night from garryvoe.
My parents and wedding guests are still talking about how much food there was on the day, staff offered second helpings of everything. The staff were polite all the time, especially to the lovely lady who was at my side in the ballroom all evening (her name escapes me) to make sure I had everything.

Ben assured me everything was in hand but as every bride knows, it's part of a wedding to stress! But garryvoe really were great on the day.

Great photo locations, close to cork airport, only one wedding per day, clean, friendly staff and fairly priced.

Thanks so much to everyone especially ben and Aidan.
If I ever get married again, I will choose garryvoe!!!

From the first moment we viewed the Garryvoe Hotel, we fell in love with the place - the views, the décor, the staff and the warmth of the Hotel. We initially met with the Hotel Manager Aiden and we decided to book our wedding immediately after. From start to finish, Aiden was fantastic to deal

with and was always on hand to answer any questions and nothing was ever too much trouble. He really did take the stress out of everything for us!
All the staff throughout the Hotel were also amazing, a special mention goes to Eoghan, Anne-Marie, Liz, Laura and Tracey. Every time we visited the hotel in preparation for our wedding, they were always there to assist in every way possible.
On the day of our wedding everything was perfect for us - the welcome, the drinks reception, the function room, our entrance, etc. All our guests were very complimentary of the food, the service, the hotel, the rooms and the location. Guests were so impressed with the Hotel that many have promised to revisit the Hotel on Holidays in the future.
One opportunity for improvement which was raised with us following the wedding was that there could have been additional canapes at the drinks reception as some guests did not get any or see any.
The function room is beautifully decorated, has great space and the lounge area is ideal for guests of all ages. To top off our wedding day, the bridal suite was absolutely amazing!! Not one but two floors. This is perhaps the best Bridal Suite there is!! Many of our guests came to visit it and were also hugely impressed with it!!

Overall, we are so glad we picked the Garryvoe Hotel for our wedding! We were so sad to leave the Garryvoe, but so happy knowing that they had made our day so special and one to remember forever!

Highly Highly Recommended...

Around 50 of our group stayed in the hotel the next night.
The casual front bar was ideal on day 2 (Saturday) as they serve food all day so people could come and go at their leisure.
It was a lovely bright day so people were strolling down to the beach in groups and getting ice creams in the little shop on the way.
We had such a good weekend that when everyone left after breakfast and it was time to check out, we impulsively decided to stay the 3rd night, just the 2 of us, as we didnt want it to end!
That Sunday was lovely and quiet in the hotel and I would strongly recommend staying there an extra night on your own to any couple getting married as it was a nice chance to chill with a cocktail in the library and reflect on the outstanding weekend we had.
Thanks again to all the team involved, I would be more than happy to recommend Garryvoe to anyone for their big day!

hands.

The name alone had it sold for us. With not only years of experience dealing with weddings, they have had DECADES. Experience and Time...two things money cant buy.

On the day we booked our wedding we were given a Wedding Booklet that we kept as a "Bible" for 19 Months. It had everything that a newly engaged couple would need to kick start the planning process. The manager we were dealing with Ben also assured us that if we had any questions or needed any advice to contact them without hesitation.

The next time we met Ben was for our Wedding Tasting in May. Such a brilliant idea, as we always had a fair idea of what we wanted but to actually taste it really sealed the deal. There was a wedding on the same night, which meant we got to meet the General Manager Aidan and Managing Director Stephen too.

The week leading up to the wedding was a very relaxed one. We got married on a Saturday so we came down with all our "bits and pieces" on the Tuesday Night. We met Eoghan the banqueting manager, who was so lovely to us and listened patiently to me going through all our requests for big day.

The day of the wedding was amazing, we reached the hotel to be greeted by all the managers we had previously met. All details given to Eoghan were followed through to the letter. From the Arrival reception to the moment we got into the lift to go to bed we couldnt have asked for any more. Liz on the top table was a "God send" as our Bestman said and is a true gem to the hotel.

Everyone of our guests and family members LOVED the hotel and thought the food and the staff were 5Stars.
We would recommend the Garryvoe Hotel to any couple. Thank you all from Mr & Mrs O'Mahony

everything under control. We lived abroad for a portion of our build up but even so, the Garryvoe staff were always just a quick email away, always getting back to us insanely quickly!
The Garryvoe Hotel is a stunning location and all-round fabulous hotel - Lots of our guests have said they can't wait to return and we feel the same way. It is such a gem, and the staff are incredible. The food must also get a special mention as we still have people absolutely raving about it.
The library that holds the drinks reception is a dream - the atmosphere here is just so elegant but fun too. The ballroom speaks for itself - stunning and a perfect size. The dancefloor is placed so well in the room and the whole layout really lends itself to a full dancefloor for the evening band.
All other parts of the hotel are also fabulous and as a wedding weekend location it is just brilliant, from the cave bar to the leisure centre and the beautifully decorated guest rooms, we were just so impressed with it all. Not to mention the luxurious bridal suite that is amazing. Waking up there as husband and wife was truly so special.
We are so thankful to all at the Garryvoe Hotel (special mention to Mr. Belton and Laura at reception) for making our wedding dreams come true. We cannot wait to return to beautiful Garryvoe.

We arrived for our menu tasting about 8 weeks before the wedding and we were treated like royalty for the night, it got us really excited for the wedding day.
On the day itself, everything was perfect. Aidan was at hand to welcome us and guide us through the evening (you have no idea how much the glass of ice-water before we went into the ballroom meant to us). The food was spectacular and we still have guests complimenting the food, service and the hotel weeks later. A special mention for Liz at the top table who looked after us really well.
The staff at Garryvoe really made our day wonderful, could not recommend the hotel enough.

Aidan and the team were so helpful in the run up to our wedding including looking after all the guests for a meal the night before the wedding, which was also delicious. We planned the wedding from England and it was all so seamless thanks to the incredible organised team at the Garryvoe.

Tracy was so helpful in booking all the rooms and going back and forth with us when there were changes and Laura answered all our queries so quickly.

We are so delighted that we chose the Garryvoe for our wedding day and would highly recommend it!

with staff and they were more then obliging on any aspect of the wedding. The food was EXCEPTIONAL. At our meal tasting the hardest part was the decision as all the food was top class. Our guests raved about the food and they said the fact they got seconds shocked a lot of them. Also the guest noted they never had empty glasses and the staff were always on hand to top them up. Not only the meal but our guests also noted the breakfast was delicious the next day. Our guest were also so impressed by the value for money and that the over night stay didn’t “break the bank”. We and our guests both loved the rooms and the rooms over looking the beach are just beautiful. The ball room is just Devine with beautiful decor and ease of access to the bar and restrooms. Obviously we had older couples at our wedding and when they didn’t want to be dancing the night away they took to the library room and celebrated in comfort. We had no hassle at all with Garryvoe and I can’t recommend it enough. Not only did we get a beautiful venue but we can now visit a beautiful place every year to celebrate our anniversary. I can’t express how beautiful this hotel is.

The one thing that stood out was the staff and service delivered, everyone was exceptional and it was noticed and appreciated. The whole evening went off without a hitch and we have received lovely letters from people since with some saying it was the best wedding they had been at in years ( perhaps everyone says that). A huge thanks to Ben, Stephen and Aidan for making the day so memorable. We have been recommending to anyone looking for a venue.

are still getting people telling us how wonderful the food was. We recently received our photographs from our wedding and the decor of this beautiful hotel was spectacular in them. The Samphire Space was wonderful for guest to mingle and talk after the wedding ceremony. Organising such a big event can be very stressful however Garryvoe Hotel made it extremely easy for us. There was never an issue. The attention to detail was outstanding. Even Stephen Belton (managing director of the Hotel) went to get a scissors and remove a loose thread from my wife dress just before we entered the function room for the very first time. They were fantastic especially with the function room. They way they had it all laid out from the decor to the dressing of the tables and chairs with flowers or candelabras for all our tables. The service was 5 star! All our wishes were granted. All the team were superb. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Thank you for such wonderful memories.

Of course it is so hard to know where to choose for your wedding reception but as soon as we saw Garryvoe Hotel we were immediately intrigued. The staff there were so friendly from our very first interaction with them, then so helpful and professional as we outlined our plans, confidently assuring

us that what we wanted was perfectly achievable. We genuinely wondered if we really could be as lucky as we felt when we went ahead and booked the hotel. When we got back in touch with the team at the hotel as it got closer to our wedding day we were met with confidence so self-assured it could even have been mistaken for complacency, but this confidence turned out to be impeccably well founded. The level of professionalism shown by every last member of the team was remarkable and their ability to demonstrate a wealth of experience and an unmistakable passion for their craft meant that our wedding reception was filled with moments that we will treasure forever. To simply say that the team in Garryvoe know what they are doing would be a profound understatement. The sometimes subtle, personal yet always elegant touch given to every last aspect of their involvement would be difficult to accurately describe without spoiling some of what they have in their considerable box of tricks. Seemingly little things and unexpected touches really do make such a difference, even when the “big things” are positively knocked out of the park and that’s absolutely what they did. The fabulous food, enchanting surroundings and a spectacular location had our guests marveling to us at what a stunning choice we made for our wedding reception. We were reminded of how lucky we felt when we found ourselves there in the beginning, except that what the team delivered truly exceeded all of our expectations. Words can’t describe what it means to us to have had such capable allies there for us on such an important day. Thank you all so much for your part in the best day of our lives. ‘Till we meet again!

Well where to even start. We had our wedding in Garryvoe Hotel on September 1st 2018 and it was just an amazing experience from start to finish. From when we met with Stephen Belton in March 2017 to the end of the wedding weekend we were so impressed and humbled. Every time we visited the hotel

Read More

before the wedding it was a pleasurable experience and there was always someone there to answer any queries we had. The day itself was just seamless and as a bride and groom we didn’t have to worry about a thing. As a self-proclaimed foodie couple the food was something hugely important to us and it did not disappoint. In fact it was something of a highlight which many of our guests have come back to us to commend the hotel on. The whole atmosphere in the hotel is a recipe for an amazing wedding and we would highly recommend it to any couple looking at Garryvoe as a possible wedding venue. We couldn’t do a review without giving a special mention to Liz who looked after the top table during dinner. She also runs the show at breakfast and is always so friendly to every guest she meets! Maura in the office was also a huge help to us in relation to the accommodation for our guests and again nothing we asked of her was a job too big. She has a lovely way about her and does her job to a very high standard. It has to be said though that every staff member we had an experience with from planning our wedding to leaving the hotel on Monday September 2nd was great. Good customer service is something that this hotel has down to a fine art and it is very evident throughout the hotel. We also had a 2nd day event in the smaller function room with a buffet for our guests. This food was also amazing and filled the spot for everyone after a long day of drinking the day before! Picking Garryvoe as a wedding venue will not be a decision you regret, our only disappointment is that we can’t go back and to it all again.

Liz was amazing from our menu tasting to checking out; she was there smiling and helping. Our best man said without her he would not have made it through his speeches, she kept him on track and calm throughout.

Everyone who attended our wedding has commented on the staff attention they received and how beautiful this hotel is. We couldnt have asked for more. They made sure our wedding was everything we hoped it would be and more!

I have since heard of a good few people who have attended weddings here and I have heard nothing but positive feedback with one person saying she regrets not having her own wedding at Garryvoe!

stood out a mile. Stephen's experience, knowledge and attention to detail sold it for us.
Not being based in Ireland meant we needed someone to take the reins and nothing was ever too much trouble at any point through the process. It was seamless. We had drinks the night before and the day after in different parts of the hotel and everything was fantastic - the food and cocktails superb. They creatively laid out everything the way we wanted and the room looked unbelievable.
They accommodated all 220 guests we had, even extending to The Bayview sister hotel which was also fantastic in service. Having lots of experience of high profile events all over the world, like many of the guests we had in attendance meant the bar was set high! They were all blown away declaring it was the best wedding they had ever been to for service, food and execution. That was all down to the team who even decorated the smaller function room for day 2 and it looked outstanding!
Despite winning numerous accolades they maintain that local family feel but are modern and fresh and that it truly special. Stephen, Aidan and the whole team do Cork very proud. We cant thank you enough.x

We had our wedding ceremony and reception in September and I can’t explain how incredible our experience was from start to finish. We viewed a few hotels originally and obviously Garryvoe hotel is stunning but what made the final decision for us was our meeting with Ben, after speaking to him we

knew we would be in safe hands with him and that goes along way when you are planning a wedding. Every time we called to the hotel after that we were so well looked after and nothing was too much to ask for, it confirmed we made the right choice. The wedding day arrived and needless to say the day and entire weekend went off without a hitch. Both myself and my husband were made to feel like the most special people in the hotel for the entire weekend. The staff were absolutely amazing from the wedding coordinators and management down to the bar men, everyone we dealt with were genuinely lovely people and had the best attitude towards both us and all our guests. The food was devine (everyone at the wedding said so) and it was such a relaxed atmosphere, Liz had everything under control. The hotel truly is a credit to East Cork and now one of our favourite spots. I can’t thank everyone at Garryvoe enough for making our wedding the most perfect day.

My husband is from Dingle and his family (all of whom stayed in the hotel for 3 nights) are still talking about the level of service provided by all the staff at Garryvoe. They really could not get over how friendly and genuine the staff were and how stunning the hotel was. They mentioned that in all their time in West Kerry (a tourist hotspot where you would expect a high level of service) they have never witnessed anything like Garryvoe Hotel.

If we were to do it all over again there is nothing I would change and for that reason I would recommend Garryvoe Hotel to anyone looking for the perfect wedding venue.

Garryvoe Hotel is the best wedding hotel in Ireland.

When we were searching for our venue we walked into the reception area off the bar at Garryvoe and I instantly knew this would be our venue.

All of the processes of having our wedding at Garryvoe was made so simple by them. We live in

Read More

England so it was quite difficult to plan a wedding being in another country but Garryvoe made it so easy. From emailing us different table plan settings to re-booking our menu tasting to moving the tables in the function room 3 times for me.

The day before the wedding they so generously let me put all of our stuff into the Bridal Suite so I didn't have to walk around the hotel trying to move my items from 1 room to another. Then on the day we had a couple of people who were unable to eat the food we had chosen and they were more than happy to find an alternative for them without any fuss.

The food is out of this world. I've never been to a wedding and walked away feeling so full and enjoying every mouthful. We had a lot of guests who were confused when the staff went around offering seconds but didn't turn them down because of how great the food tasted.

Our bestman had a video to go along with his speech and the team were great at setting up the projector without any disruption to the other speeches.

The whole time we were at Garryvoe we were so looked after and so relaxed which is so important on your wedding day! I wished it never ended!

The bridal suite. WOW! You have so much space to get ready and not be on top of each other. Then you have the massive bed which is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, I'm trying to find one just like that for home because I had such a great nights sleep in it. Then you have the steam room and bathtub with the jets! When we were telling our friends about the room they wouldn't believe us! I just want to live in the bridal suite.

You will not be disappointed having your wedding at Garryvoe they are amazing. Thank you for everything!

Garryvoe was a fantastic place to have our reception! When we were looking at different venues we both just had a gut instinct about Garryvoe that we couldn't quite put words on...but we went with it and it was 100% the right call. The room for the drinks reception and the ball room were beautiful

Read More

and the food was delicious (with generous helpings and seconds!). The staff were so good for looking after us and checking that everything was perfect. They put in so many little touches that we would never have thought of asking for: a special room to store our decorations the week before the wedding, they took our flowers that we had in the church and put them on the tables, other small details that I've forgotten now but at the time made me smile. No matter what little request we thought of asking for, the answer was always "no bother, we'll take care of that". Arranging a wedding is such a stressful and busy job, but everything was hassle-free in Garryvoe and they couldn't have made it any more of a pleasure. They clearly specialise in weddings, and have a lot of experience. They went along with anything we wanted, but their wedding planners also thought of plenty of things that we didn't. They were willing to keep all the rooms for the wedding guests up until quite near the wedding too. It was like having the run of a mansion with just your friends and family - we really felt at home there.

I don't know what else to say - if we were to get married again, we'd do it all over in Garryvoe! We'd recommend it to anyone.

his staff are the reason we chose The Garryvoe Hotel. From the General Manager right through all their team there wasnt one person who wasn't very helpful, polite and friendly. Any minor concerns we had were dealt with efficiently and without question.
On the Big day Ben the Banqueting manager looked after our every need, we had an amazing day, everything we had planned was done was we had hoped and the venue was beautiful. The drinks reception was held in the amazing library room with glasses of presseco and glasses of beer. The main reception was great, the food was first class and the service was faultless. The Bridal suite is great, split over two levels it gave us a great oportunity for some lovely photos in the room and from the balcony. We chose to stay an extra night in the bridal suite to relax after our busy wedding and we enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of the day after in the Garryvoe hotel.
All in all we were looked after without fault from the first contact until well after all our guests went home. Nothing was too much trouble and they gave us advice and guidence when we asked. I would recommend The Garryvoe Hotel and its Staff to anybody for thier wedding it was exceptional.

has everything you could ask for, the round open bar gives plenty of room for guests to meet and mingle. The library area had a magical feel from the snug corners with lit fires to the breathtaking christmas tree and beach views. But it doesn't stop there, the ballroom is nothing short of amazing. It's an elegant spacious room with magnificent high ceilings and stunning chandeliers. The Bridal suite speaks for itself, spread over two floors, its spectacular in every way, I love the beach and to wake up to the sea views on our balcony was amazing. The hotel itself has everything you could ask for in a wedding venue but thats not the best part about Garryvoe. We cannot speak highly enough or thank the staff enough in Garryvoe. We are so grateful to all the Staff, firstly to Stephen Belton, who we met on our very first visit to the hotel. He knows weddings inside out and we knew we were in very good hands. We were at ease all the way through the wedding process and nothing was ever too much trouble. He was there on the day to make sure everything went off without a hitch. He is professional in every way, and a character to say the least! We would also like to thank Brendan, who impressed everybody by how in control of the whole day he was. He was always two steps ahead and we were never left wanting at any stage. The meal on the day was outstanding. This was never a worry of ours as the Garryvoe Hotel is renowned for fantastic food. A special thanks to head chef Kevin for taking time out of his incredibly busy day to say hello and to wish us well. All in all, we could not say enough about every aspect of the hotel and our guests have not stopped talking about the day since

I cannot recommend Garryvoe highly enough. From the very first day we went down there to have a look nothing was too much for the staff. They are amazing.
We met Ben on our first visit and I knew from speaking to him on that day that I didn't want to look anywhere else, I totally fell in love

with everything about the hotel. The hotel reception room is like something from a magazine, I could see all the guests mingling there before the meal and that is exactly what happened. We got to speak to everyone there in a lovely relaxing atmosphere before the meal. The room itself is amazing and the food is out of this world. On the day everyone commented on the quality and quantity of the food. There was no problem with seconds or thirds for anyone who wanted it. I would also like to give a special mention to Liz who waited on our table, she really was outstanding. Our 20 month old son was with us and she couldn't do enough to keep him entertained and fed.
To be honest all the staff are amazing, no matter what we asked nothing was a problem. They are so easy to deal with and really took over everything for us, I really never had to think of the reception because they had everything organized for me, from the cake arriving to the band getting set up. They really made the whole experience as stress free as possible.
When we got married it was in the middle of storm Ophelia but once we were inside the hotel we didn't know what was going on outside, everyone was taken in and brought to their rooms without any hassle.
If you are considering Garryvoe I would say go for it, you won't be disappointed.

It has been over a month since our special day (14 October 2017) and our opinion of the Garryvoe Hotel and the team only continues to grow. Our guests and family who we have spoken to in the last month rave about how impressed they were by the hotel, the setting, the food and the staff. From day

one when we met the wedding team they were a joy and a pleasure to work with.

This hotel is made for weddings and the Garryvoe team is the best in the business at them. Stephen Belton, Aiden and in particular Ben who was our wedding manager were brilliant to work it. They gave excellent succinct advice and really looked to make our day perfect. No matter how many meetings or calls we made whatever minor issue was bothering us – the guys always made us feel like they were our priority and would always make time for us and give us ideas. This a family run hotel and you can sense it. They really appreciate business and there is just a lovely atmosphere in this hotel which is created by the staff (whether this be the bar staff, reception, cleaning staff or the night porter). Our day could not have gone any better, however, there was a hiccup at the start of the day when a make-up artist did not show up for the Groom’s family (which had nothing to do with the Hotel). However when Donal mentioned this to Tracy on the front desk she took complete control – rang all her local contacts and managed to get an appointment for us. It is these things which you will notice during your wedding and makes the Garryvoe so special. They really are just such lovely people working in this hotel. A particular mention to Liz (Senior Waitress) who always made you feels at home, Shirley (Head of the Cleaning Staff) who was always there with good luck wishes and Tracy who it was a pleasure to meet and who helped sort the lack of the make-up artist for the Groom’s family!

The Library is an unbelievable setting for pre-dinner drinks overlooking Ballycotton Bay and the Lighthouse. The function room is classy but not over the top. The food well it was just unreal (5 Star quality which was complemented by all our guests). Sometimes at weddings we always get the feeling that the service and food at the top table might not be as good as it is for the guests at the back (all our guests though made a point of complementing it). Nobody goes hungry either with plenty of seconds being provided to all our guests. According to Ruth’s Uncle who travelled home from Australia it was the best food he ever ate at wedding (he is 65!) and we are sure he would not be alone in this view. The drinks at the bar aren’t expensive by hotel standards and the stage for the band and the dance floor were perfect. Our wedding was so special and the Garryvoe and the team played a huge part in this.

Finally on the Monday after our wedding (we had drinks in Ballycotton in the Blackbird Bar on the Sunday (another great venue)) – Storm Orphelia hit. While our wedding was over at this stage, the Hotel could not have been more accommodating for our guests who had to change their travel plans (cut short or lengthen their stays) and really continued to go the extra mile (they made sure we were all secure in the hotel and cut our cake to make sure our guests were well fed while we all waited for the storm to pass!).

This hotel is made for weddings, it was what they do, they are excellent at it and they value your business. Sometimes we read online reviews of hotels and restaurants and wonder - how trustworthy are they? I am sure everyone says nice things about the hotel they got married in? Hand on heart this hotel exceeded our expectations. They are very upfront with prices, no hidden costs, the setting is unreal, the food is Michelin Star cuisine and the staff make you feel like you are an extension of their family and the Hotel is your home for those few magical days.

From the first day that we sat down to talk about possibly having our wedding in the Garryvoe, to our dinner tasting, the days before our wedding, our special day and sheltering us in Storm Orphelia – the Garryvoe and Stephen and the team really looked after us. The best of luck to Stephen and the team – they deserve every success.

We made the best the decision of our lives by deciding to get married on 14 October 2017. Our next best decision was to book the Garryvoe. Go for it you won’t regret it – we promise!

Donal and Ruth

We had our wedding at Garryvoe Hotel 28/10/17 and we couldn't have asked for a better venue. The setting alone at Garryvoe beach is amazing and ideal for wedding photographs, but the hotel itself is the real winner. From the moment we first viewed the hotel we knew it was for us. The beautiful

décor, and stunning chandeliers in the reception room couldn't have have it more charming. The bridal suite was like something out of a fairytale and we already cant wait to go back and stay there again.The staff were always available to us from the very beginning of the process and they were there the whole way through the planning to help make it the day of our dreams, no request was to small. So many of our guests came to us during the day and afterwards to tell us how much they enjoyed their stay at Garryvoe and how amazing the food was. Huge thank you to André, Ben, Brendan and everyone else at Garryvoe who contributed to making our day perfect for us.

beautiful Ballycotton. The newly renovated bar and lounge areas are perfect for your guests to meet during the drinks reception. Our guests were delighted with the meal they received. Generous portions and plenty of second helpings on offer. The waiters and waitresses on hand were extremely helpful especially to us at the top table. The bar man on the night was also great and very obliging.
The bridal suite is amazing with stunning views out over the bay. The newly refurbished rooms are top class. Look out for the little elf doors along the corridors.
Also make sure to visit the leisure center. It’s very relaxing and modern. It even has an outdoor tub. I’ve passed this hotel so many times cycling and running and on Sunday spins and live very close. But I had no idea what a top class hotel was on our doorstep. We can’t wait to go back for our 2nd free night in the honeymoon suite. If I had one suggestion for the hotel it would be to invest more in the civil ceremony room. Civil ceremonies are very popular now and to have a ready decorated room would attract more in our opinion.

immediately booked Garryvoe Hotel as it is without a doubt the best hotel in Ireland! A beautiful, family run, seaside hotel with the friendliest staff you will ever meet, who treat you to warm, Irish hospitality at its finest. They go above & beyond for you in every way to make your wedding day exactly what you wish for & so much more. Delivering excellent value for money, impeccable service, their attention to detail is par excellence! From our first meeting with Andrzej & Stephen we were so impressed. They give you honest advice & are so helpful, always responding to emails immediately, listening attentively to exactly what you desire. The Wedding Day itself was truly Magical!!! All our dreams come true! The elegance of the reception room & the quality of the meal were superb, the most delicious, sumptuous meal our guests have ever eaten, our compliments to the Garryvoe chef who is extraordinary! The magnificent bridal suite with stunning, panoramic views of beautiful Ballycotton bay is exquisite. We also honeymooned there, spending 16 nights of pure luxury in a deluxe room with a perfect view of our beloved Ballycotton lighthouse. Listening to the soothing sounds of the waves from our balcony window each night was so romantic. Garryvoe beach is just a few metres from the hotel, with stunning beach walks & a wonderful bird sanctuary nearby, it’s a blissfully, relaxing haven of beauty. Thank you so much to all at Garryvoe hotel for making our big day so special & wonderful!

7th July last.
From the first day we met with Andrzej to the weekend of our wedding all the staff at Garryvoe were just fabulous. After our first visit to Garryvoe, we knew we wanted to get married there.
All staff at the hotel couldn't have been more helpful when it came to planning our big day. Their very friendly staff really helped an awful lot and we're very responsive when it came to queries and requests. They were a real help when it came to picking the food and drink for the day and came up with some great suggestions we wouldn't have thought of that in the end were very popular. Nothing seemed to be a bother to them, they put out our personal decorations and set up a sweet table for us, that we supplied ourselves. It was a very popular addition. The ballroom just looked so stunning.
On the day itself, again I can't speak highly enough of Andrejz, Ben and their team. The evening flowed so brilliantly and included the lovely touch of a few quiet moments alone to take it all in while the guests took their seats. Amazing food and wonderful service
The following morning was so nice too. Really accommodating, no rushing us out. In short a great experience at the Garryvoe Hotel.
Very many of our guests are still complimenting the food, which was just delicious. And so many have said what a wonderful evening and night they had.
We want to thank all the staff in Garryvoe, the girls at the front desk, the servers, the chefs & kitchen staff, and of course all the management staff. We just had the most spectacular day. One we will never forget.

one Andrezj and the team were just amazing. Each and every member of staff made us feel so special; nothing was a hassle for them. When booking the venue, Andrezj kindly showed us around the venue via Skype as we both live aboard in NZ. Emailing was the best method of communication for us, and I can say the team at Garryvoe responded within 12 hours or less.

As our civil ceremony was the first we would ever attend, Andrezj talked us through the day step by step and what would happen. This really helped put my nerves at ease. All our guests mentioned how relaxed the day was and wish they could do over their own weddings to have the wedding we had.

As always the food was delicious and couldn't be faulted. All our guests were served at the same time. My only regret was my dress was too tight to eat any more food.

We both really loved our day at The Garryvoe Hotel and would to do it all over again.

family and friends there. We had a civil ceremony followed by a drinks reception in the library and enjoyed a gorgeous meal in their smaller function room at the front of the hotel. We found all the staff from the front reception team, restaurant staff and the management team to be excellent. It didn't seem to matter that we were a relatively small wedding and probably one of 3 or 4 that week. All of our guests were really impressed by the hotel. People commented about everything from the food to the staff, to the bedrooms and the location itself. It ticks a lot of boxes !! The choice of bars is also something we really liked. They catered for everyone as did the bistro bar and restaurant. For me a stand out memory is the bridal suite. It is just breathtaking and the views are amazing. It was such a relaxing place to get ready and according to our photographer it is the most spectacular bridal suite in the country. High praise indeed ! We can't recommend the Garryvoe highly enough. It was absolutely perfect for us and we will certainly be back next year to enjoy the hotel and indeed East Cork again.

On May 12th, Will and I got married in Fermoy Co. Cork. We held the reception of our wedding at Garryvoe Hotel. I can safely say that was probably one of the best decisions we ever made.

is from Mizen Head, beside the sea was a perfect location for us. As both of us work Monday to Friday, and Will in Wexford, we found that it was difficult to make appointments with most hotels as the event co-ordinators worked Monday to Friday. Fortunately at the Garryvoe Andrzej the wedding Co ordinator was available on Saturdays/sundays for any meetings. This was a big plus for us and also gave us confidence that the person that we would have every meeting regarding the hotel would also be on-site the day of the wedding. Based on our initial meeting, we pretty much made up our mind that we were going to go with the Garryvoe Hotel, size wise it was perfect for the size wedding we were going to have but also the room itself was absolutely beautiful, also the hotel itself looked lovely from the entrance to the unbelievable library bar and hall down to the banquet room. Andrzej also was so warm, welcoming and friendly and gave us confidence in the hotel. All the staff that we met on the day had smiles on their faces and were warm and friendly, exactly the type of people that we wanted to be greeting and looking after our guests on the day of our wedding. Over the few months in advance of our wedding, we had a number of meetings with the hotel, each gave us great confidence in the hotel. We picked our menu and any requests we made such as having a number of servings of the beef to be rare was taken and coeliac options were gladly granted. The day of our wedding arrived and everything was perfect. First of all I will start with the food, it surpassed our expectations. From the chicken starter, soup and the beef and fish main courses to the desserts, it was all lovely. Coming from a family that loves their meat, I can't speak highly enough of the beef, there was a lot of envious looks at the plates of beef that some people ordered including me and it tasted as good as it looked. The portions were great and there was plenty seconds for anyone who wanted it. There was no delays between servings and everyone was served promptly. Both the back of the room and front were served at the same time which was great for our guests.The Banqueting manager had everything under control and again all the servers were prompt, efficient and with smiles on their faces. Once the food was finished, the tables on the dance floor were moved out of the way and the venue was ready for the rest of the night. Once the music was finished, the bar staff and the night manager couldn't be more helpful and made sure that my wife and I were looked after and our requests were granted. All our guests that were staying the night were well looked after and their singing voices did not go thirsty. So many of our guests came up to us the following morning and even since then to compliment the hotel from the food and venue and the appearance of the hotel. Garryvoe Hotel has a lot going for it but definitely for us, it is the staff from Andrzej and Ben to the girls at reception, the food servers and bar staff that are the best selling point of the hotel. They each contributed to making our wedding day the happiest and most memorable day of our lives. We would like to thank all of them. Ellen and will

Garryvoe hotel delivered an exceptional all-round service for our wedding. From our first meeting where we discussed dates and budget, through to planning the day in detail and during the big day itself, everything was as we expected and much more.

In terms of planning, Garryvoe clearly have a

wealth of experience and are able to assist couples in establishing a budget and have good ideas for where to spend and where to make savings to ensure guests make the most of the day. The team are really friendly and down to earth, and therefore we never felt as if we were asking a stupid question. Far superior in this instance when compared to other options that we explored.

The reception area is a fantastic space with nice views for guests to mingle, and the ballroom really has that wow factor when guests first enter.

The food was one of the stars of the show for our wedding, the fillet beef comes particularly recommended and even though we had over 210 guests everyone's meal arrived promptly and was cooked to perfection.

The service itself falls into the background, it is subtle but efficient which is a perfect combination.

The bridal suite is a vast but luxurious room over two floors with amazing views, you would really want to stay there for a week!

I could not recommend Garryvoe Hotel as a wedding venue highly enough, the staff are great to deal with and friendly, the facilities are second to none and the food was outstanding.

We had the pleasure of celebrating our wedding at the Garryvoe Hotel in May this year. We were blown away by how smoothly everything went from when we first dropped into the Garryvoe to enquire right through to when we were setting off on honeymoon.

This is down to the team at the hotel who were

fantastic. Everyone working there were so responsive to any of our requests and also seemed to genuinely enjoy what they were doing which definitely contributed to the fun atmosphere on the day.

The food was superb (more high end restaurant quality than a mass serving), and arrived at the same time for all guests to enjoy together. The facilities at the hotel are great. The library area was especially fantastic for our post ceremony drinks reception and gave us some amazing photos.

We organised our wedding from London, and are so grateful to the team for how easy they made the whole experience.

Thanks again to the team at the Garryvoe!!

Im not one for writing reviews... but the decision we made to get married at the garryvoe hotel was the best decision we have ever made and they absolutely made it the best day of our lives. We live in England so were worried about having a destination wedding. Though with the garryvoe hotel, there

certainly was nothing to worry about, from start to finish they were so helpful throughout the whole process. Our guests were so complimentary of the staff and could not get over how amazing the food and venue were but most importantly, how brilliant the staff were! We all stayed for the week of our wedding and had the most fantastic holiday and best day of our lives! The minute we walked in the garryvoe and we're greeted by the team, we instantly knew that we needed to look no further and had found the venue of our dreams...and they certainly proved us right! Would absolutely highly recommended for your wedding and certainly as a destination wedding, you'll have an amazing time and experience... I promise!!!

We would like to say a huge Thank You to Andrzej, Ben, Stephen and all the staff of Garryvoe Hotel for the wonderful service at our wedding reception in July.From the very first day when we met with Andrzej to book the date, to checking out after the wedding, everything was just perfect and

Read More

effortless for us.
Andrzej was always there for us and responded so quickly to every e-mail/ telephone call. He shared with us his expertise and ideas to make our ideas and wishes come true.

On the day of the wedding, the managers were all at hand to make sure everything ran smoothly. We felt so relaxed from the minute we arrived. It was the most amazing day of our lives and the staff went above and beyond to make that happen. One example of this is when a member of staff took it upon herself to go and get a non alcoholic glass of wine for our pregnant bridesmaid. These are the small little gestures that our guests are still talking about.

All our guests commented on just how relaxed our day was and how everything ran so smoothly and efficiently. They all fell in love with the hotel and its gorgeous surroundings. They spoke so highly on how fantastic the meal and service was throughout the whole day. No one could fault it.

We are so happy we booked Garryvoe Hotel for our wedding. We truly were treated like royalty and could not have asked for anything more. All the little touches and extras that Garryvoe staff do really make a Wedding day so unforgettable.

Wishing you all at Garryvoe every success in the future and I'm sure you will continue to be the best wedding venue in Cork for a very long time.

Myself and my now husband got engaged in July 2015. When we were looking at venues for our big day, Garryvoe was was always on the list, but it wasnt until we called in and met with Ben that we truely made our decision. He was so good to deal with from start to finish, as was Andre and those on

reception. We booked our date, put down a deposit and away we went. Anytime we called or emailed any queries throughtout the 15 months to our wedding, Garryvoe were so prompt with their replies, and even though our wedding was months away, we were always treated like we mattered. The weeks leading up to our wedding, we had our meal tasting with Ben. He was so helpful and any changes we wanted, they were able to facilitate us. The week of the wedding, I was back and forth to the hotel with props and questions and the staff were on hand to help me every step of the way. Our day finally arrived, 21st October. When we arrived at Garryvoe in the Combine Harvester, Ben and Andre were on hand. Sean had asked Ben if we could arrive in style and he made sure it was possible and made sure not to say it to me as it was a surprise. The staff on the night were superb. All our guests were delighted with the fantastic meal that was served to them and were so complimentary of the staff and their speed on the night. The whole day went so smoothly and that was down to the professionalism of Garryvoe hotel. I cannot say enough about this outstanding venue. They couldnt have done any more for us and we are delighted we got to celebrate our special day in such a special venue. Thank you all so so much at Garryvoe hotel.

We got married on 28th April 2016 and it was simply the greatest day for us. It was everything we had hoped for and so much more. A huge part of making the day so memorable was the help, professionalism and support from beginning to end from all the team at Garryvoe Hotel. We had looked at a few

other venues before Garryvoe but within minutes of being greeted and shown around by Andrej, we both knew Garryvoe was the place for us. The ballroom itself is gorgeous, the new Library drinks reception area was just so comfortable for all our guests to gather, listen to music and get into the party mood. We also got numerous compliments by guests on the tastiness of the food. Andrej, Ben and all the staff are just so friendly and nothing ever seemed to be any trouble to them. We are so thankful to everyone at Garryvoe to looking after us and all our guests so well. We look forward already to going back to celebrate our anniversary. Alan & Mary Hickey

stayed at the Garryvoe. Our guests were overwhelmed by how wonderful and accommodating the staff were. The night before the wedding we gathered in 2 groups at the new hotel bar (the ladies!) and the men in the cave, service was fabulous till the small hours. On the day everyone had breakfast together and used the spa, getting ready with pre drinks in the bar before coaches left for the church. Once we returned as a married couple we were greeted with a drinks reception and most people were outside enjoying the view and glorious weather. Our meal was amazing, every guests said how delicious the food and that they had never been to a wedding with such a great menu. The most brilliant wedding that kept going unitl 5am!

From start to finish our day was truly the best day of our lives and it was mainly down to the hotel and their fabulous staff. We cannot thank them enough x x

We are so happy that we chose the Garryvoe Hotel for our recent wedding reception. When we first started looking for a reception venue, we thought it would be a difficult choice, particularly as we live abroad, but it turned out to be an easy decision once we visited the Garryvoe Hotel. We got a

Read More

sense from them straight away that our wedding would be in safe hands and that everything would run smoothly despite us organizing things from afar, which is exactly what happened. Andrzej, Liz, Laura and Ben were fantastic to deal with and made the whole process so easy for us.

Everything about the Garryvoe was brilliant. The food was fantastic and they have a broad menu and are happy to accommodate other dietary needs, which was important to us as we had a few vegetarians, coeliacs and diabetics among our guests. The interior of the hotel was recently renovated so the decor is stunning, and the location is as picturesque as they come. Some of our guests travelled from abroad and they were very impressed with the hotel. The best thing about the Garryvoe, however, was the staff who were all so friendly, helpful and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble for them and many of our guests mentioned the friendliness of the staff afterwards.

I'm sure there were one or two hiccups on the day but, if there were, we were never aware of them and were able to just focus on enjoying ourselves and spending time with family and friends. We have so many happy memories from the Garryvoe Hotel and really could not say a bad word about the place. Before the wedding, we thought it would be a great venue but it completely exceeded our expectations. We loved every minute of our time there and can't wait to go back for a visit!

The venue itself is amazing and is perfect for every size wedding. We had a large enough wedding and it didn't for one second feel crowded. The reception staff in the days before the wedding were also fantastic. Even though they had 4 weddings in the week running up to our wedding every effort was made to ensure our day ran smoothly. The day itself went in a blur but I certainly won't forget the amazing food and service we received on the day. Our guests raved about the quality of the food and the friendliness of the wait staff.
We also celebrated in the bar the night after the wedding, We would highly recommend Garryvoe for any special event.

The Honeymoon suite was amazing and we get to stay there again on our first anniversary. The food was fantastic , honestly everything about Garryvoe from the first day we called there up to our Wedding and especially our wedding day was absolutely amazing and we are so glad we chose Garryvoe, Thanks so much to all the staff for making our day so great.

We had our wedding day on 2nd September 2016 in Garryvoe Hotel. From the moment we booked our special day in 2014 Andrzej helped and guided us and made both of us feel so at ease. I stayed in the hotel the night before and from when I arrived with my family to when I left with my husband the day

after the wedding the staff could not do enough for us. Nothing was too much trouble for Stephen, Andrzej, Ben or any of the staff. The wedding day it's self was amazing, I did not have to worry about any of the little details as they were all taken care of by Andrzej and his team, the service from all of the management and staff was second to none. We did not look at any other hotels when booking our wedding in 2014 and I am so glad we did not as Garryvoe did not disappoint. Everyone has since commented to us on the food which there were seconds and thirds of! the service and how beautiful the hotel is and we wholeheartedly agree. Stephen, Andrzej and Ben are experts in their field of weddings and was definitely evident in the months and days leading up to the wedding. The function room is amazing, the decor is gorgeous and the lighting is just wow. I have only ever heard good feedback about Garryvoe and after having our own day there we could not say any different. If we were to have our day all over again I definitely would not change our venue it would be Garryvoe time and time again. The sun shone on our day but needless to say even if the weather is not great, it is still a spectacular venue. The bridal suite is gorgeous and to wake up and look out at the amazing views is definitely an experience. On the morning of the wedding, I was so calm and looking forward to the day ahead and that was definitely helped by all of the staff in the hotel making our experience of what is a stressful time so relaxed. When we left we felt like we made friends, we look forward to visiting the beautiful Garryvoe for many years to come. THANK YOU, Aoife & Owen Murphy

Myself and my wife had an amazing wedding day at the Garryvoe. The location is beautiful, the hotel and its facilities are 5 star but the best thing about the hotel without doubt is the staff. They are superb. A lot of hotels hark on about being family run but the Garryvoe is the only one where I've

Read More

actually noticed the difference the family run element makes. Proper personal service, always making sure you are happy with everything and the feeling of genuine interest in us and making sure we were happy with the plans. The food is amazing. Hands down - best wedding food I've ever had, prob best food full stop! Fresh, high quality served by excellent staff. Yes, the staff again but really they are so good! All our guests commented on them. The hotel even rang ahead to guests traveling down the night before from up the country to see if they'd like dinner when they arrived in case they'd miss the restaurant and they'd have something ready for them. Most hotels wouldn't bother. Again personal touch, makes a massive difference. I can't recommend the Garryvoe more highly. If you have any doubts - just go down and see the place, talk to the staff , wedding planner, you'll see what I'm talking about! Oh and the gin cocktails - I could go on and on. 5 star hotel all day long! Other hotels in the area just don't compare!

Homeward Bound service made it all very simple. Stephen and his team were also quick to reply to any query we had, big and small, and put our minds at ease every step of the way. Their extensive experience in wedding planing was evident, even at the other side of the world! On the day, the hotel was in pristine condition, with their newly renovated bar and the ballroom was decorated tastefully. The food was amazing, and we got numerous compliments on both the quality of food and service, with seconds and thirds being offered to everyone! My dad was delighted with himself, as they gave him two desserts without him even having to ask for it!!! The bar staff were ready with a smile to serve all night. The bridal suite is just heaven. The views of the ocean are second to none. We couldn't have had a better start to married life! We can't wait to visit Garryvoe again :)

We had a fantastic wedding day in Garryvoe Hotel in June 2016. The Hotel has recently been refurbished and the transformation has been amazing so we were lucky that we could hold the drinks reception in the new Library which adds a whole new dimension to the Hotel.

The setting overlooking the

Read More

beach is spectacular and the views from the Honeymoon Suite cannot be matched. A lot of our family and friends decided to spend a few days in the Hotel on the lead up to and following the Wedding so were able to relax and enjoy the on site swimming pool and spa facilities.

From the moment we booked the Hotel, Ben and Andre along with the rest of the Team could not have done anymore for us and they really did go above & beyond. As every couple knows, the lead up to the wedding can be very stressful but Ben really put us at ease and was more than willing to accommodate any requests that we had. All the staff played a huge part in making our day so memorable.

The day itself flew by and everything went brilliantly from the drinks reception, the meal and the wedding band. The Ballroom is huge and the seating area by the Bar is excellent too. The Hotel is well know for its food and the food on the day was excellent and the waiting staff kept producing more portions so you certainly won't be feeling hungry after the meal.

I would thoroughly recommend the Hotel to any couples getting married in the near future as you won't be disappointed. Believe us both when we say you won't regret booking the Hotel as it really is one of the best wedding venues in the country, taking into account the scenery, fantastic food and the brilliant staff. Only advice I would give couples is to book the Hotel early as it's nearly always booked up two years ahead for the summer months and you really don't want to miss out on having your big day there.

Garryvoe was the second hotel we visited when deciding where to have our wedding reception. We had never been to a wedding there previously and knew very little about it. We initially met Stephen and Andrzej and were very, very impressed with the hotel, the bridal suite, the management and the

Read More

variety of options for us from the menu choices, to the drinks reception, to the main reception room layout. We had our wedding in December and there was a great xmas atmosphere/decor in the hotel. We were in contact with Stepehn, Andrzej and Ben at various different times in the build-up and they were excellent to deal with. We cannot speak highly enough of them. We were pretty clueless at the start and were unsure of what questions we should even be asking. They really held our hands through the pricing & decision making process and their advice was really great and welcoming. They were very accommodating and flexible and we knew as early as our first meeting that no other hotel could compete with Garryvoe in terms of advice, value and service. The same can be said for the full staff across the hotel. It really was the highest level of service you could wish for on your wedding day. Liz was exceptional/personable at the top table and ensured both families were looked after well. It was an amazing experience. We did not have any trouble or concerns from day 1. Everything was dealt with professionally and easily. The tasting evening was a fantastic experience and the quality of food was exceptional. We went with beef and monkfish in the end and it was faultless. Our Guests on the day still discuss the quality of food 6 months later. We and our guests were also very impressed with the rooms at the hotel and the bridal suite is fantastic. Some of the guests have gone back to Garryvoe since and booked in for a night or 2. I really hope you find this review informative and we honestly feel that this review won't do garryvoe justice. They delivered brilliantly for us. Thanks again.

sent to us afterwards which was very handy. We didn't have to worry about anything once we had booked and paid our deposit. Coming closer to the time the reception staff were really helpful with who had rooms booked, if I needed to hold rooms etc. Then Ben scheduled in a meal tasting with us a few months before the wedding. We met him prior to the tasting and went through the running of the day etc and he made us feel really reassured that we didn't need to worry about anything he has it all under control. (which he 100% had!) the meal tasting itself was a great night, had a brilliant time and again all of the staff were great. the day of the wedding itself went really smooth. Liz looked after us really well at the top table. I couldn't have asked for anything else from the hotel, everyone at the wedding commended the venue, the food and the staff. also the bridal suite is AMAZING!!!! Brilliant venue. it deserves to be 5 stars!!

Ben was also extremely helpful with enquiries, and looked after us at our food tasting. Both were present when we viewed the ballroom the evening before the wedding, and helped us set up the extra things that we wanted to do. We were delighted with it, and completely relaxed on the day knowing that the staff had everything in hand.
We were walked to the front door when we arrived with umbrellas and champagne, and introduced to the staff in the ballroom. Mary was fantastic at the top table throughout dinner, and the food was delicious!
We thoroughly enjoyed the entire day, and I could not recommend this hotel highly enough! The beautiful beach setting, impressive ballroom, comfortable hotel rooms and most importantly wonderful staff made for an unforgettable experience that we will always be grateful for!

The hotel itself is beautiful and the bridal suite is everything and more you could ask for! The guest rooms are gorgeous, the food is amazing and it is the management and staff who truly give everything to make it a perfect, memorable day. Even the next morning at breakfast family and friends continued to receive the warmth and friendliness of staff as they had done on the previous day.
I would recommend any couple to have their wedding at Garryvoe, not only did we have the best day but our guests continued to tell us weeks after what a great day they too had at the hotel.

We booked Garryvoe Hotel for our wedding and it was the best decision we could have made.
From the moment we saw the hotel with the wonderful facilities and beautiful views we knew it was perfect. From the outset the staff were fantastic. They were able to cater for our needs however big or small.

They were incredible and on the day/weekend of our wedding were professional, dedicated and attentive to our needs. We could not have imagined better service.
As for the venue it was beautiful and the attention to detail was superb. The food was truly wonderful with many guest commenting it was the best wedding breakfast they had ever tasted. Guest were also delighted with their rooms and the facilities that the Garryvoe offers. As for the honeymoon suite it was out of this world !
The wedding was a fantastic weekend of celebration and the hotel were truly superb in ensuring it was a weekend that we and our guests will remember forever. We could not have asked for better service and care, in particular from Ben. It was a truly wonderful weekend and was made special by the amazing work of all the staff at Garryvoe Hotel.

never pushy with any decisions. The reception team are always so warm and friendly and always put me at ease with my many questions
The food was gorgeous, and Ann was so helpful during the tasting and made us feel right at home. Our guests were all pleased with the selection and quality they offered.
The honeymoon suite was amazing, such a haven to relax in after a hectic few days. It was great to have the two floors and enjoyed having family and friends over the day after the wedding for a drink and cake
There are too many things to compliment the hotel on. I think it sums it up that when my husband was hungry the night after the wedding and rang after the kitchen had closed they still dropped up an amazing selection of sandwiches, crisps and sauces to us. They really couldn't do enough for us. Don't hesitate to book this venue for your wedding!!

Where do I start!! Garryvoe provided a 5 star service on our big day. We live in the UK so whichever venue we decided on entailed us placing our full trust in the hotel and its management. Within 5 minutes of visiting Garryvoe and meeting Andrzej, we knew that this was the venue for us. We were made

to feel very much at ease and nothing was too much trouble. As with most of the hotels in Cork and Ireland, they are very well suited to the larger wedding however, we had an intimate wedding with 45 guests. Some other venues had limitations to our options because of this, but not with Garryvoe, anything we asked for was accommodated. The bridal suite is absolutely to die for!! In fact all of our guests mentioned how lovely their rooms were and the food was absolutely to die for, could not ask for better. The whole run up to the wedding was so stress free and this was mainly down to Garryvoe. On top of a 5 star service with beautiful surroundings, this all came at a very reasonable price which is so refreshing when it comes to weddings. All in all, I would have no hesitation in recommending Garryvoe and the team for the beautiful surroundings, gorgeous venue, amazing food but above all top class service and staff! Thank you so much to Stephen, Andrzej and all the team for make our special day so amazing!

(in fact the service continued after the wedding day as well).

Food: Above par (guests were very pleased).
Service: Extremely good (glasses continuously being filled, reception always there to help in any way, etc.)
Room: The bridal suite was outstanding with a great view. It's perks were the 2 levels (opportunity to host a small gathering the following night upstairs around the large dining table), a Jacuzzi, a sauna, gorgeous view and a very comfy bed.
Our guests also commented on their own individual rooms with positivity.
Value: Very simply... Great value!

We have no criticisms and would recommend it to anyone.

Hi Everyone,

I choose Garryvoe Hotel as I had attended a wedding there in 2013 and found the service, food and setting excellent. The bride and groom also highly recommended it after the wedding.

We got married on the 7th of August this year (2015) and the Team in Garryvoe could not have been

more helpful in the preparation of our big day. They gave sound practical advice in organising a wedding for the big crowd that was attending. They were flexible in the arrangements of menus and wine. They always responded swiftly to phone call and email queries. Any request that was made for the big day was facilitated. I had a plan of how I wanted to have the reception and function room organised and they had it done to the tee on the day. The staff were so kind and gave our guests a warm welcome on arrival. The food was excellent even when catering for a large wedding of 270. Guests wine glasses were topped up regularly which is always what you want to get a good night off to a great start!

Andrzej was the main manager we dealt with and he was super at his job. We enjoyed dealing with him as he was so practical in the way he thought and had a great way with people. We also dealt with Ben and Stephen closer to the day and they were very professional. The staff were all excellent on the day and guests commented on this also.

Garryvoe hotel is overlooking the beach and we were able to get some fabulous photos there. The bridal suite is amazing with two floors and a glorious view of the beach and lighthouse.

We would highly recommend it as a wedding venue!

Our guests and ourselves were certainly full after the meal as the staff came around with seconds and even thirds for some people. We stayed down in Garryvoe for a second day and even though there was another wedding in the hotel we were still treated exceptionally. Also on a side note the bridal suite in the hotel is the best room we have ever seen. We could not have asked for anything better for our wedding day.

We cannot rate Garryvoe highly enough. The staff and management were fantastic from start to finish. Neither of us live in Ireland so organising the wedding wasn’t easy but with Garryvoe, not only were there no problems, nothing was too much for them and they were always looking for ways to help.

Read More

Every person we met in Garryvoe from the managers, bar staff, receptionists and waiting staff were all only too willing to help and the professional service was always provided in a personal friendly manner.
As for the hotel itself, we looked at many hotels both in Cork and the UK but the moment we saw Garryvoe, there was only one option. The function rooms, accommodation rooms, reception area, bar, restaurant etc are all superior to the competition. When you add the hotel itself to its beach front setting, it’s hard to see why anyone would go elsewhere.
Finally we have to mention the food. The hotel really did not let its standards slip here and the food served on our day was every bit as good as that we ate in the restaurant and bar on our visits to the hotel in the months leading to the wedding. We will be back many times to eat in the Lighthouse bar.
We know a review should be balanced but struggle to point out any negative.

Read More

just magnificent and took my breath away. By the time we were shown the bridal suite, we knew that that was where we were going to have our reception.

In the lead up to the wedding, a member of staff was always available to talk to, even if we just happened to drop in to the hotel. In the days before the wedding, we were able to drop bits and pieces off at the hotel and left instructions and they were set up for us on the day of the wedding, no problem.

Everything went so smoothly, absolutely nothing went wrong in the hotel and we weren't bothered by staff asking us lots of questions or looking for direction. The only time we were asked about anything was when the Prosecco was running low and did we want to put out a few more bottles.

They run a very tight ship down there and were like a well oiled machine. All the staff were fantastic to deal with and our guests were very impressed. I was particularly impressed that all the meals came out in great time - all within about five minutes of the top table being served. Dinner was served promptly and didn't drag out.

We had decided to hire a florist to do the centrepieces and there was no problem with her coming down and setting up either.

We were so happy with our day - anything we asked for was accommodated. If you choose to have your wedding day in Garryvoe - you will not be disappointed. Our wedding day happened to be literally the wettest day of the year so far and it did not stop all day and night - the hotel was so fantastic, no one even noticed!

I would recommend Garryvoe with a heart and a half - let them help you create the happiest day of your life!
