We got married at the Imperial Hotel Cork earlier this year and have to say the venue and customer services were outstanding - the staff went out of their way to ensure that we had everything we wanted. Planning a wedding can be quite stressful, time-consuming and expensive but Lynda and her team at

the Imperial ensured that we got everything we wanted and for excellent value. We were given lots of options for food -even when it came to our more exotic requests - and we were given the opportunity to taste everything in advance. The function room itself was decorated beautifully and all our guests said what a beautiful venue it was and how amazing the food was. We also loved the room we got - the penthouse offered stunning views over the city and with ample space. Overall, we couldn't think of a bad thing to say, everything was exceptional!

We can't thank the staff enough for making our wedding day so special. Everyone went above and beyond what we expected. A special thanks to Lynda and Jim who were absolutely fantastic and felt like family. Everything was perfect and we couldn't of asked for a better day

Wow, wow, wow. We had such a fantastic day on Saturday all thanks to the staff at the Imperial.

We were truly blown away by how well we were treated, I would even go as far as saying you all spoiled us.

I hope no one got too frazzled with us running behind schedule, time literally ran away

from us but I think the staff handled it really well.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Can not recommend the hotel enough, superstars.

Lots of love

To the staff at The Imperial Hotel,
We just want to say thank you all so much for the care and attention you gave to us, our families, and our guests for our wedding on Saturday October 21st 2017. Every member of staff was so wonderfully helpful, friendly and professional. We received many

compliments from our guests about how welcoming and friendly you all were to them. Thank you all most sincerely.
I'll have to begin with Louise who we were dealing with initially a year and a half ago. Louise was extremely responsive to emails and always had solutions or answers to anything that was needed! Unfortunately Louise went on to pastures new and we were put in the capable hands of Charley Walters. Charley took over and it really was a smooth transition from one to the other! Charley also was a pleasure to deal with and was so helpful and professional.
We were then left in the VERY capable hands of Lynda O' Sullivan for the remaining months in the lead up to the wedding. Lynda was a dream to work with. Every email (and I sent a lot!) was answered quickly and efficiently. Nothing was too much trouble and she never made us feel like we were a nuisance (though I bet we were!) Every little detail was discussed via email and every question was dealt with, no matter how small or trivial! To a bride (and groom!), that means an awful lot. It was so lovely meeting Lynda and going through the last few details the month before the wedding. Arriving with a list of 25+ questions didn't put her off! We knew straight away that we were in very good hands and all the finer details would be taken care of! Lynda thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for everything you did for us. You really went above and beyond. You are a treasure

We choose the Imperial Hotel for our wedding and we are so delighted that we did. They could not have been more helpful when it came to the planning and helping us make decisions around the menu etc. Lynda was a joy to deal with, she has a great attention to detail and nothing was too much trouble.

In the run up to the wedding everyone at the Imperial was incredibly helpful - Sinead and the reservations team and Christy and the guys on the concierge team were all fab. The day itself went smoothly, everyone commented on how great the food and service was. Jim and his team were incredible, ensuring everything went to plan, especially Hailey who looked after setting up all the decorations. If you are looking for a venue which offers a warm and personal feel with character and feeling of family along with excellent service, you need look no further. We couldn’t have wished for a better day.
