Lynda & Jim from the Imperial Hotel went above and beyond in creating a fun/romantic wedding for my husband and I.
We couldn't have asked for a better venue but most importantly better and friendlier staff.
They were all amazing and worked with us through the Covid-19 pandemic to still create a

Firstly can I say we adored our day and that was in no small part down to you guys. We felt no stress whatsoever during the drinks reception and meal. You guys really had taken all the organisation and responsibility out of our hands and it was just lovely to show up and be present with our guests.

At no point did we feel rushed or that we had missed out on something. The food was divine and the atmosphere exactly as we had hoped.
As with all days I imagine things don't go totally according to plan but you guys kept everything ticking over and just touched base with us. It was fantastic.
The décor was beautiful and the overall vibe from start to finish was just a joy to be a part of.
I loved your suggestion of a few minutes upstairs for canapes just the two of us when we first got back. It was probably my favourite moment of the day. The penthouse and rooms were beautifully presented and we really appreciated the help from the porters throughout our stay. The drinks reception was perfect. Everyone remarked on the fact that they had a number of drinks and got a few bites so all very happy.
The kids room was a roaring success! As a couple who love spending time with family, looking after our smallies was a big thing for us and I have to say the space and the care the kids were given was astounding. They all had a total ball and it meant alot to their parents and us.
The set up for DJ and band was seamless and we loved that tables could stay put so we felt the room worked really well. Finally, the staff. The kindness and efficiency of the staff we dealt with over the few days was astounding. Every single person we dealt with was an utter joy. Nothing was too much to ask and we really felt like we were being looked after- so much so we didn't want to leave! My family are already talking about coming back next Christmas to mark the anniversary.

We got married just before Christmas with our reception at the Imperial Hotel. There are not enough good words to say about the venue, the staff, and the service we were given throughout the build up to the wedding and on the day itself. We went for the Fairytale in Cork City package and can highly

recommend this, it was amazing value for money, including a beautiful wedding car that brought us from home to church to hotel (our driver Joe was gas, absolutely made the day!). The food was divine, definitely the best wedding food I have ever eaten, and the room was so gorgeous. The Christmas decorations did add a lovely touch, but it is beautiful all year round! Everything went off without a hitch on the day, with Jim and the team running a tight ship! We would like to say a special thanks to Lynda who did such an excellent job organising the whole day. None of our guests have had a bad word to say about the venue, from the reception to the meal to the hotel bedrooms, and it was the perfect size for our wedding of around 140. We had the use of the penthouse for the night, which was gorgeous, and we got some lovely photos from the balcony

’We got married in The Imperial Hotel on Dec 27th 2019 and definitely had the best day of our lives. From the first day we met Lynda, the wedding co-ordinator, she made us feel so excited. We were always reminded by her kindness and charm during all of our meetings that we’d definitely made the

right choice too.
On the day of our wedding she definitely didn’t let us down either. The food was excellent, so many of our guests commented on its quality. The venue was perfect with such a lovely flow from the entrance hall, bringing us into Souths Bar before finally sitting for dinner in the ballroom. James and his staff took over then with the same enthusiasm and professionalism we had received from Lynda. He was brilliant too, ensuring everything was so perfect for us. We wouldn’t have changed a thing.
The Imperial Hotel staff were second to none and left no stone unturned. From Christy in the foyer (a total gent) to the ever available concierge (I didn’t get his name), to Lynda, James and their teams we cannot thank you enough. You made our day so special and we wouldn’t have changed a thing. Our time in The Imperial was fantastic and it is a place we will only have the fondest of memories of.
We will definitely be back down to visit and would highly recommend it as a wedding venue for anyone who maybe interested. However, only consider it if you’re looking for something that’s going to beyond your expectations. The hotel and staff here don’t seem to settle for anything less.
Thank you all again for everything, the whole experience was incredible.
Aoife and James
