wedding on Fri, 20th of August, 2021
My husband and I got married on Aug 20th, 2021. We had our ceremony in Farran Church and our reception at the top class Kenmare Bay Hotel. Our original wedding date was planned for the 8th of May, 2021, but unfortunately due to Covid, we had to reschedule and reorganise our plans. We were dealing

with Kenmare Bay since late 2019 early 2020. From start to finish, they were absolutely excellent, from our wedding coordinators to all the staff to the rooms reservation manager. They accommodated us 100% in all our swapping and changing dates, gave us time to adjust and think, and always kept in contact if we hadn't contacted them. At the height of the restrictions, they always kept us in the loop of new announcements from the government. As our wedding got closer, we were dealing with Alan Donnery. We could not say enough or recommend him highly enough to any future couples who are looking for a fabulous wedding day from start to finish, stress-free. In the weeks coming up to our wedding day, there wasn't a day that Alan didn't contact us to make sure everything was running smoothly. I could have depended on Alan from early morning to late and night. He was absolutely incredible. He was also brilliant in helping us to find suppliers, that we were unable to find due to the restrictions. He offered his services to Tom and I in every way.

We were in absolute awe with the wedding car they provided us with. It was amazing, from luxurious comfort to led lighting to a bottle of Champagne and nibbles. The driver was so kind, friendly and caring to me ( The Bride) as the weather was shocking. He looked after me in the best way possible and was beyond considerate. Tom and I got a massive welcome from the staff when we arrived as a married couple. It was mind-blowing. To see how the ballroom was set out melted our hearts. The meal was 100% amazing. Our guests had so many good things to say about the hotel. We would recommend Kenmare Bay Hotel to any future brides and grooms.

We couldn’t recommend Kenmare Bay Hotel highly enough for your wedding! From the very first day we set foot in the hotel to meet our wedding planner, Alan, we immediately knew this was our dream wedding venue. Alan talked us through the day as it would happen if we were to have our wedding

reception here, and it was better than we could ever have imagined. Alan and Síle were incredibly approachable and helpful with anything we asked for. They went above and beyond to ensure our dream came true!
Hanneke, in reservations, was so patient with our numerous changes. Nothing was too much to ask!
With a year of constant worry about restrictions, Alan and Síle were so supportive and gave us great advice on planning our wedding. The food was absolutely exceptional and the staff couldn’t have been more accommodating!
I have only huge praise for the stunning Kenmare Bay Hotel. Choosing this venue will be the best decision you will ever make!

Kenmare Bay Hotel is a fantastic hotel, with super service!

From the moment I arrived the day before my wedding, I was

looked after from start to finish! Our meal was super, and they even upgraded our menu, which I thought was amazing as the hotel was going through difficult times itself with the pandemic! Also the surroundings are beautiful! The service was also fantastic, I’ve dealt with Sile, Tom and Alan who all do tremendous jobs xx
We are very happy we got married in Kenmare Bay Hotel!

From the start, Kenmare Bay Hotel and the staff, (Síle, Alan and all their staff especially ), have been absolutely brilliant. The planning for our wedding there was a breeze, despite covid and the rescheduling of our wedding from 2020 to a 2021 date. The hotel instilled a huge amount of confidence

in us that we had no problem going ahead with our wedding despite the pandemic, and we were not disappointed.
All weekend they looked after us and our friends and family who came. On our special day everything worked out perfectly. Our wedding ceremony was in the hotel as well, which added to the relaxed but organised atmosphere that was there. Everybody loved the food and hospitality on the night. We had a great night that will stay with us forever. Hands down, we could not recommend Kenmare Bay Hotel highly enough, without which we could not have had the wedding we had dreamed of!

Adrian and I booked our wedding with Kenmare Bay Hotel for March, 2019. From the moment we went into the place to book, they made us feel calm and at ease. As we booked nearly two years in advance, they always kept in touch. As months were getting closer to the date, any silly question or problem we

had they made it easy to talk to them by email or phone. On the day, I had forgot someone on a table and they made room for her, and I didn't know until a few weeks later. They made us special, and we enjoyed every minute at the hotel. Alan, Sile and the staff at Kenmare Bay did a wonderful job at our wedding. The food was outstanding. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, for a wedding.
