We just celebrated our wedding in the Kenmare Bay Hotel on the 18th November and we can't recommend it enough. We visited Kenmare on a whim after hearing a wedding event advertised on the radio. The second we stepped in the door, we knew it was the venue for us. All members of staff were beyond

friendly and displayed very high levels of professionalism. All our questions were answered and we knew we were in good hands. We were blessed to have Alan overseeing everything for us and he was just outstanding from start to finish. He's an absolute gentleman and we'll never be able to thank him enough for his support and guidance throughout our wedding planning journey. Any questions we had were promptly answered and it felt as if we didn't even have much to do as everything was taken care of for us! I was collected on the wedding morning by Carlo, who was another fantastic addition to our day. A lovely, lovely guy who so kindly helped us in the background to look presentable in our wedding photos on what was an extremely windy day!! Everyone just went above and beyond for us and we couldn't be happier. The food was beautiful, the set up of the room was ideal and there were so many other little touches provided by the hotel that made our day extra special. Kenmare and the staff at the Kenmare Bay Hotel hold a very special place in our hearts. We also had a great laugh along the way. We have very fond memories of our special day and we can't wait to visit again soon.

From the day we spoke to Alan during covid, he couldn’t have been any nicer. Alan and his team helped to organise one of the best day of our lives. From the minute myself & Mick met him & them all face to face, they were only a phone call away and did absolutely everything to put me at ease, they

left no stone unturned. On the day of the wedding, starting with the driver picking me up from the house and getting us to the venue, he was excellent and did everything to help us with flowers and transporting my stuff to Kenmare. What can I say about the the reception, wow the food was top class and the service second to none. Alan & the Kenmare Bay team are amazing and on behave of myself and Mick, we want to thank you all for everything you did to make our day fantastic, everything was timed to perfection. We highly recommend The Kenmare Bay for your wedding, it will be worth every minute.
