We had our wedding in the Kenmare Bay Hotel on New Years Eve 2022 and we truly had the best day. Alan, our wedding coordinator was so helpful from our first meeting, always on hand to answer any questions and on the day he really pulled out all the stops. The food was amazing. The staff were very

We had our wedding and ceremony in this beautiful hotel. We would both highly recommend this hotel as an amazing wedding venue, the food was amazing and great value for money. The reception room was beautiful as it was beautifully decorated. From the moment we met with the wedding coordinators Alan

We had the most amazing wedding day. Having checked out other Hotels and premises, including having a Marquee in our local on the Island where we both live, we knew The Kenmare Bay Hotel was for us. From our first phone call with Alan in October 2021 to our wedding day in September, there was

nothing too big or too small for him and his team. Every phone called answered, every email replied to, no matter how trivial. They were on hand with tips, local suppliers, timings etc. Their wedding package was amazing, it fitted every budget, every dietary requirement, nothing was impossible. All the decor in the ceremony room was done, right down to the floral spray for the candles, which was a lovely surprise when we went the day before our wedding to check things over, with bouquets in hand to make one. Those flowers filled my flower girl bouquets instead. Carlo, their driver of their car, who came to collect me (Alan said it would be the first time they needed to take a ferry to collect a bride), was amazing. He had myself, my son who was giving me away and my daughter who was my chief bridesmaid(we travelled together) all very relaxed, so much so I was doing my daily wordle on my way over. No nerves to show. The wedding itself was a truly wonderful occasion. Every detail exact, as it should be. The food was divine, and so said all our guests, the wine was flowing, the entire staff were out on their own, pure perfection, nothing was too much for any of them. Sile was on hand with safety pins when I had a mild dress malfunction. The rooms were perfect on the night, and all that excellent treatment was just the same the following they. They even had everything packed up, ready for us to take. Hand on my heart we can not sell the Kenmare Bay Hotel enough, our day was perfect, we had the most wonderful experience and delightful day in The Kenmare Bay Hotel.
Thank you all

We absolutely 100% recommend Kenmare Bay Hotel & Resort. We worked with Alan, and he was brilliant from start to finish. We booked during Covid, and Alan did a video call tour with us of the hotel. We got such a great vibe from the very beginning. We didn’t get that from any other venue, so

choosing Kenmare Bay wasn’t too difficult. The service was second to none. Alan couldn’t do enough for us. People are still talking about the food and service from the day. It was perfect. Kenmare Bay will always hold a special place in our hearts!

From Day 1 back in July 2020 when we had the tour we knew we had the venue. We did look elsewhere but ultimately the vibe we got at Kenmare was better than any other venue in both Cork and the Kingdom.

Nothing was too much trouble for Alan and even replying on your day off. Alan you are a gent.

Thank you for everything. To Hanneke on reservations, thank you also as I was emailing back and forth about accommodation and was never an issue for you.

We can not thank all the staff that worked this weekend enough from the reception, bar, cleaning, waiters throughout everyone was brilliant and so friendly. Shout out especially to Dave (Hozier as we called him) and Sam (George Ezra) the bar staff on the evening they were great fun.

The amount of people who have been in contact since we left saying how amazing all the staff were to them and the food!!!
Where to even start, out of this world.
The hake was the best hake they've ever had, this was commented on by so many people. I don't even eat fish and I had it and can't wait to come back for more.
The beef was perfect according to those who had it. One of my friends said "it was the nicest meal she's ever had". Even people commented on how good the potatoes and vegetables were. Not 1 single complaint was heard. The food was so delicious and I had some serious foodies at the wedding who gave it a 5 star rating.

I would highly recommend Kenmare Bay Hotel for a wedding and would love to relive my day again.

Liam and I celebrated our wedding day on the 26th of August 2022. We had decided to have our reception in the Kenmare Bay Hotel, based on previous weddings we had attended there. I cannot recommend it enough. Alan Donnery the wedding co-ordinator was outstanding. From the moment we enquired about

this reception venue to the actual day of the wedding he couldn't have done any more for us. We were driven to the venue by staff member from Kenmare, he was so attentive and helpful. The reservations team were accommodating and obliging. I feel the service we received exceeded any 5 star hotel. On the day of the wedding the food was just amazing, and the staff were fantastic. Alan, made an entertaining and brilliant MC. The feedback we received from all the guests was very positive. It was genuinely one of the best days of our lives. I feel that the Kenmare Bay Hotel is a fantastic wedding venue which is deserving of a 10/10 rating.

delivered with a smile and a friendly smile I couldn't thank them enough for how good our day was. I would recommend the Kenmare Bay to anyone and will return there many times as every time I go there the service is tip top class. Alan had everything running so smoothly he was on top of everything and I had not heard one bad word about the food from any of our guests and usually when you go to a wedding there is always some complaints from someone, it says alot about the hotel. It's just a spotless clean friendly atmosphere to be in and even the location is great if you want to head into town plus all my family loved the houses, when you have a big family it was a lot easier for them and they were very good and accommodating to my brother and his family who switched from two hotel rooms to a house/villa not sure what they are called but not a lot of places would do this for people. The package was just fantastic we were very satisfied with how well we were looked after. The prices for such high quality was very satisfying and the honeymoon suite was unique, the dance floor was full all night and it's a night I or my wife will never forget. The Kenmare Bay is well justified in being nominated for this award and its staff should be proud as they are all such lovely people in my view and anything that was needed there was no problem, they were there to help. I wish them the best of luck with this award and will look forward to returning for another great night there. Beautiful people, fantastic management, fantastic food, fantastic service, spotless toilets, Kenmare Bay what a beautiful hotel. I salute you never change the way ye run this hotel as I will never forget how good a night it was for us.

We had our wedding reception in the Kenmare Bay in July 2021 and it was the most incredible day from start to finish.

they were always very happy to discuss our concerns and put our minds at ease and keep us up to date with new rules and regulations.
Although our wedding numbers reduced massively due to the government guidelines at the time, the staff at the Kenmare Bay were always extremely accommodating and reassuring.
They couldn’t have done more for us and this resulted in a seamless day.
All of the guests were extremely impressed with the food and service and on the day, as were we.
We couldn’t recommend the Kenmare Bay enough.
We have since been back for our 1 year anniversary and the staff were just as welcoming and accommodating for this.
Thank you so much to the team.

The Kenmare Bay Hotel was the absolute perfect location for our wedding. Everyone dreams of their perfect wedding and this somehow exceeded our expectations. Working with Alan and SIle was an amazing experience. We were coming to Kenmare from the States and planning a wedding from afar was quite a

task. They were able to answer all of our questions and concerns quickly and completely. From bands and DJ's to wedding cakes they had recommendations for everything. The hotel was clean with nice modern rooms and the holidays homes were a nice thing to have for bigger families. The restaurant and bar were great and many meals and pints were enjoyed.
The day before the wedding Alan and Sile were there to show us the ceremony, pre reception, and reception locations and answer any questions. They ran through the timeline and were accommodating to any request we had. On the wedding day Alan was available first thing in the morning working with his team to setup the spaces and make sure everything was exactly how we wanted it. When it came time for the ceremony Alan made sure all of our guests were seated and the music was ready to go. After the ceremony the hotel had a beautiful chauffeured car available for us to head wherever we wanted to take pictures. Our chauffeur Carlo was unbelievably attentive with champagne waiting for us and refilled the second we were finished with the glass. He knew all of the locations we wanted to go and got us to our destinations safe and sound. Upon our return to the hotel, Alan had all of our guests lined up at the hotel entrance as we entered via red carpet. It was an unbelievable entrance as newly weds and something we will never forget. The pre reception was great and gave us plenty of time to mingle before the dinner call. Dinner itself was absolutely delicious. The staff was attentive to all of our guests needs, the service was phenomenal. Overall we cannot recommend the Kenmare Bay Hotel enough, it exceeded our expectations!

with 3 starter options and 3 main options to give our guests plenty of choice and every dish was perfect. Alan was also so helpful in recommending suppliers when I was having trouble sourcing what I wanted (also highly recommend the Torc irish dancers, they made the evening!). I was concerned about having the band start as early as possible so people weren't waiting too long after the dinner and the team had the day flowing with military precision so there was no lull in the day where people lost their momentum. All in all I couldn't recommend them enough.

I don't know where to even begin. From the first email, Alan was on hand to answer any questions. I never had to wait more than a day for a reply which is what every bride needs, quick answers.
We always knew we wanted the Kenmare Bay Hotel. We had stayed multiple times before and always loved it.

The staff are the friendliest and most helpful!

When we visited for the wedding showcase, we were able to see the room all done up and we could picture what our day would be like!!
Hanneke the accommodations manager was unbelievable. I sent so many emails chopping and changing rooms for our families and nothing was ever a bother!

The day itself was the best of our lives. The whole team were on hand all day to help with everything and anything!!!
From breakfasts to delivering the lad's button holes. They really were incredible.
We had our ceremony in the hotel also and it went so smoothly. All our suppliers commented on how easy the hotel was to deal with!

When we went for our wedding party photos, we had use of the stunning car. Our driver hung around and joined in on the fun down the pier and in the town! He was a pleasure to deal with!
The food is just to die for! There were so many options to choose from when we did our menu tasting, it was hard to narrow it down but we went with steak and monkfish and everyone loved it!!!

All the waiting/bar staff were so efficient. Anything we needed was done for us.
The hotel had done up the toiletry baskets in the loos, which was great as it was one less thing to worry about. We brought our own wine and paid the corkage and the hotel was so honest about how many we actually drank. We brought way too much with us. But it was great to get back what was left as we could gift our wedding wine to family and friends.
All in all, our whole day went off without any stress or problems. I know for a fact we have Alan and the whole team at Kenmare Bay Hotel to thank for that!
Don't hesitate to book your special day here!!!!

room was set up very nicely for the ceremony and our guests and solemniser were taken care of. Afterwards, we had a lovely drive around with Carlo (who we were also very fond of) and we were provided with a delicious bottle of champagne. Our guests had a lovely time at the pre-reception and we re-joined them just in time for dinner. The food. was. fantastic. We had compliments all-round from our guests; we've been to a few weddings recently and the food at the KBH is so far above the standard, we were delighted. The bar & table staff were friendly and enthusiastic throughout and it was easy for our band and DJ to get settled in.

For what we got, the price was fantastic and we were given so many complimentary goodies, we lost track of them all! We were delighted with the level of service that we received throughout. Special thanks in particular to Alan, who is a star. We couldn't recommend this venue enough.

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

Read More

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.

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!

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!

amazing. We felt like they were family in the lead up of the day. Alan and Sile answered all my emails regardless of the times of day! They played a big part in my day and I'm grateful we had them.

We had a civil ceremony in the main room and they had it done fantastically. I had 220 guests, and the room was so spacious and overlooked the mountains. The reception in the restaurant was fantastic. All my guests were well looked after with canapes and drinks. The staff made sure they looked after everyone and their preferences. In the afternoon they transformed the room for dinner/dancing. The food was amazing, I had a few gluten-free and vegetarians and they said the meals they were offered were the nicest food they ever had! Every course was spot on and the choices were amazing. They still go on about it today, 2 years later. They looked after the whole day from the day before till the day we checked out. A lot of our guests were never in Kenmare and they are all returning down for weekends because of the welcoming they got from all. I highly recommend this wedding venue. It's elegant, friendly and overall amazing. They all go above and beyond for the bride and groom but also all the guests. Huge thank you to all the staff but especially Alan & Sile

When my fiancé and I got engaged, there was no need for a discussion as to where we would hold our wedding. For us it was always going to be Kenmare Bay Hotel. Having been to many weddings, both at Kenmare Bay Hotel and other hotels, we knew that the Kenmare Bay could deliver the high standard

issue with the hotel, who kindly allowed us to move all those times!!! The contact Alan kept with us throughout our delays, etc., was just great. He really helped put our minds at ease.
We set off on our wedding day with our driver, Carlo (the chauffeur from Cork to Kenmare was included in our wedding package) who was just outstanding. Carlo even held an umbrella for me as it rained when heading to the church. He was such a gent. He had great conversation in the car with us, and gave us lovely Prosecco too.
Alan was outstanding on the day. Any task we had asked him to do was done exactly as we asked. Alan has a way of keeping the day calm and chilled, and wants the Bride and Groom to relax and enjoy. He had everything under control. The food was outstanding, from the pre-reception to the main meal and everyone was well fed.
We were still in restrictions, with time limits and number limits, but Alan and his team honestly made the day feel as normal as possible for us all. All of our guests still talk about what a great day we all had. We have photos, videos and our fond memories of our wedding day at Kenmare Bay Hotel. We would highly recommend the hotel to any future bride and groom.

in the very capable hands of Alan, who I cannot commend highly enough. Alan is a true professional, and we had utter confidence in him from the very beginning. The first day we went on a tour of the venue with Alan, he painted such a vivid picture of what our wedding day would look like. He talked us through the whole day, from the arrival of the hotel car at my house, right through to the champagne breakfast the morning after the wedding. Alan’s description of the day had us bubbling with excitement, and we were sure we had chosen the right venue.
In the lead up to the wedding Alan was on hand, at the end of the phone or through email to give advice on everything from menus to music to table plans. No task was too big, and no question too small. He was easily contactable, and very reassuring as we tried to plan our wedding in the midst of covid restrictions. He even managed to find us a wedding DJ, two weeks before the big day. His infectious energy got the crowd going, as he acted as MC for us. On the day of our wedding, one of our guests actually sought us out just to tell us how amazing Alan was.
Kenmare Bay Hotel supplied a wedding car and a driver as part of their wedding package. On the morning of the wedding, I was met by Carlo, the driver. Carlo is an absolute gentleman, and such a calming influence. He went above and beyond the call of duty, even helping to hoist the bride over a wall for part of the photoshoot.
The food in the Kenmare Bay is renowned for being top class, and our wedding meal was no exception. The food was absolutely delicious, and so many of our guests commented on how good it was on the day, with the lamb being the star of the show. The service was wonderful, and we were so happy that our guests had such a great experience.
A final mention must go to Hanneke, the accommodation manager. Hanneke works quietly and tirelessly in the background, and what a job she does! She is professional and kind, and every request made was sorted immediately, with no fuss or hassle. My endless emails trying to sort out rooms for our guests never phased her. She is a true star.
The Kenmare Bay is an outstanding venue for a wedding. Our day was magical, from start to finish, and our guests had a fantastic time. No one wanted to leave the day after the wedding, and we are looking forward to going back again soon. We had the wedding of our dreams and it was all thanks to the wonderful staff and the amazing venue. Thank you so much to Alan, Síle, Hanneke, Carlo and all the staff at Kenmare Bay.

We decided to have our wedding in the Kenmare Bay Hotel. We had never been to Kenmare, let alone the hotel, and couldn't visit prior to booking and paying a deposit, so it was a bit of a gamble. Luckily this gamble paid off considerably.

The setting is absolutely gorgeous. Nestled in Kenmare Bay,

Read More

the view from the hotel is truly spectacular. The floor to the ceiling windows in the room where we were married and had our meal boasted a breathtaking view of the nearby mountain. We decided to have our wedding photos taken at Lady's View which is about 15 minutes away from the hotel. We came home with some spectacular shots.

The staff are incredibly friendly and they go out of their way to assist no matter what you need. Receptionists Eileen and Marissa were particularly kind and helpful. Alan, the wedding manager, was an absolute champ. He brought us through every detail of the wedding with care and allowed us to customise our experience to allow for a truly personal feel.

On the day itself, everything went incredibly smoothly thanks to Alan's meticulous planning and his awareness of where people needed to be and his dedication to getting them there. We felt safe and supported in his capable hands. It was apparent that he spent a considerable amount of time familiarising himself with every detail of the wedding.

The meal was incredible and worked out at only €50 per plate despite it being 4 courses and the wine was delicious. The hotel had worked closely with us to design the optimal menu by allowing us to stay a night free of charge, two months prior to the wedding in order to taste the various courses that we could choose.

Alan was very supportive of all of our whacky ideas and even allowed us to have a performer do a juggling/balancing/magic/escapology act in the pre-reception room, then a fire show in the car park just outside the main reception which the staff had specially cordoned off. They also decorated the room impeccably and utilized all of our personal decorations that we had brought for the day, arranging them beautifully.

The bar staff were on the button, no one seemed to be waiting too long for service and the prices were reasonable enough. Even though they were not allowed to continue serving after 11.30 pm due to covid, they allowed us to remain in the reception room with the heap of drinks we had bought just prior to last orders, until the party naturally petered out at 4.30 in the morning.

The honeymoon suite was lovely and opened up into a decent sized dining hall/living room, which allowed us to host the family the night after the wedding. The staff even scattered petals on the bed on the night of the wedding which was a thoughtful touch.

The pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room were all heavily utilized to deal with the wedding stress, and thus very much appreciated. They also have what appeared to be a well-equipped gym and offer spa treatments, of which many of our guests availed.

In sum, The Kenmare Bay Hotel is a phenomenal location to get married. I would recommend this spot to anyone and everyone. We had the wedding of our dreams and at an incredibly reasonable price. They're considerably cheaper than all of the other wedding locations we looked into. Alan made us feel like royalty, adapted everything to suit our needs, and provided us with the most wonderfully magical day we could have hoped for. I would like to thank him and all of the staff who did such a great job of making our dreams a reality.

On July 9th we held our wedding ceremony and reception at the Kenmare Bay Hotel.

Read More

- how wrong we were!

We celebrated our day with 50 of our nearest and dearest and what a day we had! The level of care and attention to detail was beyond our expectations.

The food was simply stunning, we chose monkfish and fillet steak for our main courses and our Guests were still telling us how much they loved their meals the next day. We had previously heard about how good the food was at the Kenmare Bay but it definitely exceeded our expectations!

The bridal party stayed in the holiday lodges the night before the wedding and what I can only describe as a 5* star breakfast banquet was wheeled in the door to us the morning of the wedding. Once we were ready to head across to the hotel for the ceremony, the wedding car, also provided by the hotel, was waiting for us outside - the perfect start to a perfect day!

Finally I have to mention wedding coordinator Alan Donnery. He mentioned to us if there was anything we needed to just ask. However we didn't need to ask for anything, Alan was steps ahead from start to finish ensuring everything ran seamlessly. Both of our families remarked on the level of care, genuine kindness and professionalism shown to us by Alan. A true asset to any couple getting married!

I can honestly say from start to finish we, along with our guests, had the most memorable, enjoyable day and are beyond grateful to Alan and the Kenmare Bay team.

Our Wedding.
20/09/2019 was a very special day for myself and my now husband. It was the day we celebrated our wedding.
We held our reception in the Kenmare bay.
From the minute we enquired of available dates with Sile we knew this was the spot. She had a very calm yet precise manor. Always

there when needed, she is a fountain of knowledge. Which was a welcome while trying to organise a wedding with a new born baby. Nothing was too big a task.
On our wedding week, Sile was a constant support. Again, In the back ground yet always at the other end of the phone if needs be. She was so helpful re: table plans, arrangements, music etc.. defiantly the type of person you need around you on a week of constant running and racing, it was so comforting to know all the details at the hotel were being taken care of by Sile who’s attention to detail was 100%

On the day, we had the most wonderful driver Carlo, supplied by the hotel. From the minute we met Carlo we were so comfortable with him. As was our baby girl who took a liking to Carlo straight away and spent majority her time between family members and Carlo until we arrived at the hotel. Which although far above his call of duty, Carlo was happy to oblige. We couldn’t have had a better man around us on the day. Professional, yet friendly, funny and all round a lovely person to share our first few hours as man and wife with.

When we arrived at the hotel we met Tom. We had never met Tom up to this stage, Tom who had filled the position of co-ordinating the wedding on the day for many years and was now working in a different part of the hotel, but was filling in for holiday leave the day of our wedding. Despite having never actually met Tom before, he knew everything there was to know about us as if we’d been in touch the entire time. Professional, friendly and all round fantastic at this job, attributes all staff in the Kenmare Bay hold. Tom delivered 110% on the day also.

From the first email we sent to the last word we had with the girls at reception. I can not recommend the Kenmare bay highly enough. Location, staff, food, accommodation, cleanliness, family friendly. Our in-house babysitter Mary. Everyone was incredible.

Well done to such an amazing team of people.

Sile & Tom really listened to us and what we wanted, nothing was too much trouble they made us feel at ease and our experience with them from start to finish was a breeze. As our wedding was around Christmas they showed us photos of the room set up from previous weddings around that time of year so we could get an idea of what it might possibly be like & we just fell in love. Being a big ‘foodie’ couple, the food did complete the package. We waited a few weeks and headed back to them to test out the food and we were not disappointed, it was top class. Choosing Kenmare really was an easy decision for us and as my now husband says on repeat “in Kenmare Bay you're not just a number” & you really aren’t!

All of our guests really enjoyed the weekend of our wedding from the rooms to the food and the staff. Some of them even made time to go swimming in the hotel pool. We stayed in the hotel lodges the night before which are a 2 minutes walk away and they are really nice and spacious and everything you could need had already been thought of. We couldn't compliment this hotel enough as we really enjoyed our weekend with them and definitely intend on returning regularly. The only downfall of the hotel is that there is no garden/view area for photographs but the pier and bay are only minutes away from the hotel which we used. Unfortunately, on our day, the rain really poured but we can't blame the hotel for that :) Well done Kenmare Bay Hotel.

Hotel. From our very first meeting to the days after our wedding the management, staff and hotel could not have done more. Their professionalism, attitudes and customer service are first class. They truly dedicate themselves to you, you feel like your wedding is the only one that matters. Now as an OCD candidate they dealt with my every request with positivism and acceptance which to me meant a great deal.

On the day itself everything went like clockwork. I have received the most amazing compliments from family and friends regards the venue, food and accommodation. We ourselves stayed both in the Lodges and the hotel. I personally could not have asked for more. What you would expect from a well run hotel you get, comfort, cleanliness and style. It was like a home away from home. All our guests felt very comfortable and relaxed. This made us as a couple relaxed.

Punctuality and service were top class on the day, nothing was too much trouble. We had so many compliments that it would be hard not to mention the food and how delicious it was. A true testament of any hotel catering for weddings is their ability to deliver top quality food for large numbers. This you really do get from The Kenmare Bay Hotel.

It was a magical day from beginning to end but it was a day that part of the magic was delivered by The Kenmare Bay Hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel as wedding venue. I promise you won't be disappointed and what is great outside of all these positives is the price. There will be something to suit all budgets.

Best of luck to all you future brides. I hope your day will be as fulfilled and magical as mine.

The bridal suite was fabulous and spacious and we got to stay in the same room on our second night. There was plenty of accommodation choices for our guests and all the hotel areas were spotlessly clean.

It was an exciting and nerve-racking decision. We wouldn't be able to pop by whenever we needed or make a quick phone call

Read More

everything would need to be planned over email, but all of our reservations went away once we spoke to Sile. She was so incredibly accommodating upon our visit we knew we made the right choice in our Kenmare venue.
As we planned our wedding from another country all of our questions and requests were answered promptly even with the distance and time difference. Eventually we worked with much of the staff booking rooms for our friends and family, deciding on food, and much much more.
I will especially mention an issue with the church just one week before the wedding, when I emailed Sile (in a major panic) to say I wasn't sure if we could be married in the church is there any way we could do both the ceremony and the reception in the hotel. She said it was no problem at all they would do whatever they could to help us. While the church worked out last minute they were ready to jump into to action in case it didn't. Additionally, we had a few guests show up to the wedding (in another country) that we had no idea were attending, again last minute they were able to fix our tables and add some with no trouble at all. Sile, Tom, and the entire wedding team at KBH were so helpful, calm, and organized I could not have asked for anything else. Aside from the venue itself I will tell you every one of our hundred plus guests, to this day months later, still talk about the food. I was so happy I was able to eat all courses because it is the best food in Ireland hands down. And while we may not be from Ireland me and my husband travel there at least once a year and I've never had a better meal than at KBH.
We have no regrets everyone and everything was great and we definitely recommend it!

From the moment we set foot in The Kenmare Bay Hotel we fell in love with the Staff, the setting and the attention we received from start to finish. We got married on the 21st of July this year and we were living up in Tullamore Co. Offaly so planning a wedding was difficult at times but any time I

emailed or called the staff in Kenmare they were always so helpful and tried their very best to give me tips on different things.
We especially want to thank Sile Tom and Alan their experience, professionalism, level of service and friendliness was second to none. Everything ran like clockwork on the day from the drinks reception, to the meal, to the dancing and the breakfast the next day. Even when Darragh and I were a little late arriving to the reception no issues were made and we were made feel like the King and Queen of the day.
The food was amazing, from the sandwiches and canapés in the drinks reception to the top class meal (with plenty Beef which is always good when you have married a beef farmer) to the evening reception and the late night sandwiches. No one had a bad word to say about the food the service was so fast and no one was left hungry. The hotel itself is so clean, modern and beautiful we loved it.

From our first meeting with Alan to our very eventful big day we could not praise the staff of the Kenmare Bay Hotel highly enough. Sile is only an email away with any queries and Tom was always at the end of a text. Nothing was too much hassle. We got married the day of the red alert and because of

the snow the driver was unable to get to work that morning, this was handled without us ever having to worry, Alan himself drove the wedding car, he ensured that we were warm and dry until we got to the hotel at one point we weren't sure if our band were going to make it from Cork..this again was sorted by Alan making a few phone calls to have a back up ready to go if required. Due to the weather we had some guests that were unable to travel, this was all taken into account and those guests were refunded and we were not charged anything extra. The food and service was exceptional. Overall a very positive experience on a day we will never forget!

The range of accommodation available was fantastic including holiday homes for those with kids and luxury lodges for groups of friends. The room was done up beautifully for the ceremony and afterwards for the reception. The food was simply outstanding. I received many, many compliments from my wedding guests on the lovely meal, and also the fantastic customer service they received from the hotel staff. Thanks to all at the Kenmare Bay for making our special day a perfect one for us and our guests.

We celebrated our wedding at the Kenmare Bay Hotel and Resort on Apr 7th 2018. From our 1st initial meeting with Sile Browne to when we departed the hotel the morning after the wedding I really cannot say enough good things about the service we received throughout the whole process.

The venue

itself is unrivaled. The bar and drinks reception area is bright comfortable and very modern. The wedding team at the Kenmare Bay worked with us to design a drinks reception package suitable for our guests and budget and nothing was too much trouble. The function room is, spacious and tastefully decorated. There was more than ample space to hold our crowd of 260 guests. The food was simply out of this world and we received many compliments from our guests afterwards about the wonderful wedding meal. Service ran seamlessly, the food was served piping hot and the Kenmare Bay Hotel are more than generous with their portions.

I would like to especially mention the Wedding Manager Sile Browne. Sile was side by side with us through the whole wedding planning process; she offered invaluable advice and was always more than generous with her time and expertise. Sile really went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure our wedding day was all we had imagined it would be and more. Thank you Sile.

Go ahead and book the Kenmare Bay Hotel today. I assure you, you will not be disappointed.

We have nothing but sincere gratitude to give to the staff at the Kenmare Bay Hotel, where we recently had our wedding. We were first in contact with Síle when we were initially looking at the hotel and she was a pleasure to deal with. From the very beginning, the whole process of booking the hotel

was very easy and straightforward. It really was a “push button” process, we knew after booking the hotel, that part of the wedding preparation was taken care of and didn’t have to worry about it. They accommodated us for everything that we asked of them and really went above and beyond to ensure our wedding day was perfect. We didn’t have to worry about anything on the day, which allowed us to really relax and enjoy our day. Tom made sure everything ran smoothly and on time. He even catered to our very last minute requests on the day too! A gentleman to deal with. Mossy the wedding car driver made me feel at ease on the way to the church as he is so easygoing and relaxed. Hanneke in reservations made sure all the bedrooms were allocated to our family and friends perfectly.
All our guests are still talking about how fabulous the meal was and how the service to each table was superb.

We would highly recommend the Kenmare Bay hotel as a wedding venue for everybody. The wedding package was very reasonably priced, the meal was delicious and served very quickly, the staff were so accommodating and friendly. The bedrooms were so clean and comfortable. In addition, it was lovely to relax in the leisure center the following day too.
We will always cherish the memories we have of our wedding at the Kenmare Bay hotel and we are already looking forward to our complimentary stay for our 1 year anniversary next year!
We have the utmost respect for the staff there that work so hard and we are so appreciative and thankful to them for an unforgettable wedding day.

The communication from both Sile and Tom after booking was fantastic, any little question no matter how silly it was, was answered promptly and efficiently. On our wedding day, both Tom and all the staff went above and beyond to make sure everything went as smoothly and as planned. From our arrival to the drinks reception to the meal, everything was perfect. We could not have asked for a better hotel and staff to share our special day with. We would 100% recommend any newly engaged or couples planning their wedding to check out the Kenmare Bay Hotel, you will not be disappointed!!

We met Tom for our menu tasting and we went through the details of the day, he gave his advice on some of the things we had organised and we took this on board, his experience is amazing. The food was divine and we knew that the our guests would be well fed on the day.
On the day the beautiful new Mercedes was driven by Alan to Cork to bring me and my dad to the Church and afterwards brought us to Kenmare via the scenic route so we could get some amazing photos. On the day all the staff we so lovely and it felt so homely and relaxed. After an amazing dinner we were ready to dance the night away. We really enjoyed our experience with the Kenmare Bay Hotel and would recommend them.

Having decided on Kenmare Bay Hotel for our wedding venue I could not wait for my now husband to see it in person, as he has never been to that part of Kerry before. We visited for the first time in June 2017. He was not disappointed- far from it, the venue is breathtaking, the furnishings are

Read More

beautiful, not to mention the panoramic views of the mountains.

We met with Tom, and were made to feel at ease from the onset, he is a great guy and absolutely phenomenal at his job. Both he and Sile were so helpful and were easily contactable by email or phone and we were never left waiting for a reply- nothing was too much for them. We had a small intimate wedding of 75 people, we will forever be grateful for the wonderful personalised experience created at Kenmare Bay Hotel.

We had a complimentary nights stay in the hotel when we were doing our food tasting in May of this year, (the food is absolutely divine- our guests are still talking about how good it was). On the day itself the hotel provided the wedding car to collect my parents and me and take us to the church (Dawros Church) Mossy, the driver is a gentleman and I felt like royalty. Despite there being rain on our day it didn't affect a thing, in fact the rainbow that appeared over the sky that could be seen from the window of the hotel made it all the more special. The tables were set up to perfection, we opted for a circular top table and Tom was on hand to assist with any of the seating arrangements, there is so much attention to detail.

Go raibh míle míle maith agaibh, you turned our dreams into reality and left us with the most magical memories of the best day of our lives.

We could not recommend Kenmare Bay hotel higher, if you want a stunning wedding, in a divine location- the Kingdom of Ciarraí, with Tom and Síle making your day stress free, then this is the venue for you. Enjoy every second ,as it will be over in the blink of an eye. xxxxx

ever an issue. Communication with the hotel was outstanding, and the welcome we received every time we visited was so warm and welcoming. On the day of our wedding, the pre-reception was complemented by so many of our guests and the food was just unbelievable and plentiful. And as people kept telling us the food has to be good and Kenmare Bay definitely delivered. It also has to be noted that the staff we met on our wedding day were amazing. They were extremely accommodating (even getting my niece a teddy to help her sleep) and so warm and friendly to all our guests. The atmosphere was just so nice, everyone had a great day and because of this my new husband and I could relax and enjoy the best day of our lives. The small touches of the hotel also added a special touch to our day. The beautiful new Mercedes driven by the friendly Mossie, the new Chiavari chairs, the pamper baskets and the digital menus all added to make our wedding that something special. I cannot thank Sile, Tom, and Alan enough for all they did for us.

We celebrated the best day of our lives on Friday the 11th of May 2018 at The Kenmare Bay Hotel and we cannot recommend it enough! We contacted the hotel in May 2017 after we got engaged and we spoke to Sile who recommended us to come view the hotel. So off we went on a Sunday spin from Cork to meet

Read More

with Alan who showed us around and sat with us for over an hour going through everything. We immediately fell in love with the place! It was exactly what we were looking for, a beautiful room in a beautiful setting with delicious food and amazing staff...at an affordable price! We were able to bring our own beer for the drinks reception and wine for the meal which helped us cut costs also! We booked our day right away! Throughout our year long engagement Sile was our point of contact and I cannot highlight how amazing she is!! She helped me so much and calmed me when I needed reassurance! She was always contactable and always super friendly! In January 2018 we found out we were expecting our first baby ???? Sile was actually one of the first people we told as I was nervous about being 20 weeks pregnant on our wedding day, and she was so supportive I can’t even begin to tell you! We had our menu tasting in February and brought my parents along for the treat, the four of us were in food comas by the end of it!! The food, amazing!!! Throughout the year every time we stayed in the hotel the service was better than some 5 star hotels we have stayed in! Hanneke was superb in managing our guests bookings and extremely helpful! Cut to the big day....Mossy (driver of the car the hotel provides included in our package) drove up to Cork to pick my Dad & I up from my parents home and bring us to the church! He then brought my husband (live saying that!) and I from Cork to Kenmare. There was a bottle of prosecco (for the hubby) and sandwiches for us in the car for our journey and we stopped off in the park he recommended for photos which was a hidden gem! Stunning photos!! What can I say about Mossy, he is a true gentleman and made our day even more special! We arrived at the hotel and Tom greeted us on the red carpet with more bubbly and a welcoming smile! The energy that man has is amazing, from the moment we arrived until we left 2 days later he was a constant happy helpful presence! We met our guests at the drinks reception an there was a great buzz around the place everyone was having a great time which we were thrilled to see! Dinner bell rang and we were introduced by our best man as Mr & Mrs Lynch for the first time, what an entrance it was so much fun!! I had asked Sile to put name cards on the top table so people knew where to go and on my one she had written “Naomi” and inside it she wrote “& bump!” I just thought that was such a sweet and thoughtful personal touch! The meal was amazing and the service was truly on point! After the meal we had our speeches which were hilarious and then the band started! Sandwiches and finger food came out at 11 & we saved some of the sandwiches until 2.30 after the dj! Everyone had an amazing night! The residents bar stayed open until whenever we wanted! The next morning we had breakfast in our gorgeous bridal suite delivered by the smiley Tom himself! We had our second day in Kenmare town and had a blast! Checkout was bitter sweet as it was all coming to an end but Tom was there to wish us well on our new journey and Sile sent us a lovely message! I just honestly can’t recommend them enough, all of the personal touches and gestures really made our day/weekend amazing! 3 weeks later our guests are still contacting us telling us that it was the best wedding they had been to and they were so impressed with the venue! Thanks so so much again to Sile, Tom, Hanneke, Alan and all the staff at The Kenmare Bay Hotel for making our day so special! Xxx

was a great comfort when a panic moment arose. He has great contacts in Kenamre and Kerry and helped us with suggestions.

A very nice touch to us, was Tom calling to the hotel accomodation the night before the Wedding to finalise everything , in his own time!

Our day went so smoothly, and this is entirely down to Tom's exceptionally planning skills.

We couldn't have been happier with our day. We are still receiving compliments on the food and the service.
This hotel is a fantastic Venue and we highly reccommend it. Its spacious and the location is great , just a walk to Kenmare town. They have a large number of rooms for guests and guest houses that are reasonably priced for families or groups.

We had a civil ceremony in the main reception room, which Tom co ordinated to perfection from the decor, room layout & controlling the guests. The whole day ran so smooth and we didnt had to worry about a single thing on the day. I had such high expectations from such a well reviewed hotel and it is safe to say they surpassed all our expectations. The food & service were simply stunning and our guests are still talking about it.

It is safe to say I could not recommend The Kenmare Bay Hotel highly enough to any bride & groom thinking of a wedding venue. If you are looking for a classic venue set in stunning surroundings, exquisite food that your guests will talk about weeks & months later than look no further.

We got married in the Kenmare Bay Hotel and Resort in February 2016. From our very first visit the staffand Tom especially could not have been more helpful. They were always at the end of the phone to help with any queries or questions we had. Also the reservations manager Hanneke was amazing to

deal with.

On the day of the wedding I had no fears but was totally comfortable with the knowledge that Tom and the staff would make sure everything ran smoothly. Our driver Mossie started off the day with a well needed glass of bubby. From the moment we landed in Kenmare both my Husband and I were totally pampered. All our guests were amazed with the professionalism of the staff. Everyone commented on the amazing food and excellent service in the hotel.

Absolutely amazing hotel and staff and would highly recommend the Kenmare Bay to anyone that is planning on getting married..

We had our Wedding at Kenmare Bay Hotel in July, 2016. A year on and we are still talking about how fantastic the hotel is! My brother is even getting married there in a weeks time! Can't wait! We knew we wanted our Wedding in the Kenmare Bay Hotel. It was our first and only choice as we had

been to many weddings there in the past and it was always superb. I cannot commend the staff enough on their efficiency and organisation of the whole day. From our initial consultation with Alan our Wedding Consultant, we knew our day was in good hands. Nothing was a problem! He was so accommodating of our needs. Tom, the Wedding Coordinator is absolutely amazing. He could organise a wedding in a day and build Rome while he's at it! And how he does it and doesn't stress is beyond me. Of course good leadership would be nothing without a good team so acknowledgement must be paid to Helen and the restaurant staff who were brilliant. The chef and kitchen staff must definitely be the best in Ireland. The food it just amazing. Try the fillet of beef, vol au vont, black pudding... the list goes on. Just sensational! And of course not forgetting Mossie the chauffeur who took brilliant care of us all day... by even bringing us sandwiches and prosecco for the photo shoot... a nice touch! And always ready to share the joke or hold the umbrella... a very patient man! Hanneke in Reservations was also always very helpful and accommodating to our needs. She was able to change around rooms to accommodate individual needs and nothing was an issue. She was also incredibly prompt with her email replies! The reception staff are incredibly friendly and helpful also. What I also liked about the venue is what is included in the wedding package... very reasonable. Overall, our day would not have been so perfect if it wasn't for the exceptional staff at the Bay. We could not fault a thing. We would highly recommend it. Thank you Kenmare Bay Hotel for a wonderful day.

He gives great advice and is straight about it, which I loved. We didn't worry about one single detail. Young children to the elderly and everything in between were taken care of. All staff are courteous and professional. I would highly recommend the Kenmare Bay Hotel to anyone looking at Kenmare for your wedding.

Everything went like clockwork when we arrived at the hotel and Tom was at hand to ensure everything went to plan. The staff were fantastic and the guests were praising the food all night. We could not have asked for a more memorable day to start our lives together.

day.

We had a delicious food tasting and the atmosphere in the hotel was warm, friendly and welcoming. We met Tom afterwards and he put us at ease going through all the finer details. In the days leading up to the wedding the hotel staff assisted with setting up and offering a helping hand especially Edel in reception. We got time the evening before to put in little personal touches. A bit of a mad notion to get a cake stand made by a family member turned into an attempt to lift a tree trunk and again Tom came to the rescue. The hotel really did make our job alot easier and saved us time and stress with their support.
The wet weather didn't put a damper on our day as we got chauffeured around by Mossy and the atmosphere buzzed with plenty of space for our guests in the drinks reception. The room looked breathtaking and during the speeches a surprise audio clip was played. The party continued into the early hours. With over 250 guests, people were in awe of the quality of the food. There was a few mentions the next day about the fillet of beef, champ and someone eating half a bowl of gratin.
It was lovely to be home in Kenmare in a perfect venue we would recommend to any couple who wishes to get married in the beautiful picturesque town nesled between the mountains in Co. Kerry.

A massive thank you to the fabulous team at the Kenmare Bay Hotel for making our day so truly special.

We cannot express how thankful we are to each and everyone of you down in the Kenmare Bay hotel and Resort for helping make our wedding day on the 29th of April one of the best days of our lives.

professional and friendly and my husband and I couldn't help but feel we definitely wanted to have our wedding reception here. We both knew we would not have to worry about the service and quality we would receive and that all our guests would be looked after and boy were we right. The food was simply outstanding and I cannot count the amount of guests that mentioned that to both my husband and I on our wedding day.
As soon as you enter the hotel you are met by the very efficient Tom the hotel manager and Sile who honestly will want to do anything to make your wedding day the best it can be. Nothing was a problem for the pair of them and their unreal team they go above and beyond to make it so special.
Tom, you were an absolute pleasure to deal with as was Sile, you explained everything to us in great detail, you always promptly answered our many endless emails/phone-calls, any request we had made was not a problem to you and you had patience of a saint! You made us feel so welcome each time we came to visit, in the lead up to the wedding day, the whole team made us feel so welcome, from management to reception to the waiting staff to the cleaners, everyone had a smile on their face for us, greeted us warmly and were willing to help with any request or question we had, simply outstanding. Special mention to Mossey the driver also what a gentleman. Also activities for the kids at the wedding were brilliant the families that bought kids couldn't get over how much there was to keep kids busy over the wedding weekend - they all want to come back.
I know many members of my family and friends had not been to the Kenamre bay hotel & Resort before and following on from our wedding they cannot wait to return, it truly is a little gem.
We honestly cannot thank you all enough for what truly was a spectacular experience.

They honestly couldn't have done much more. Thank you again and I can't wait to attend another wedding at the Kenmare Bay as a guest.

Thank you to the team in the Kenmare Bay for making our Wedding Day so special.
From Day 1 the Wedding Team were super to deal with. They had great attention to detail and best of all a ‘no bother’ attitude throughout the whole planning process. Anything we requested was no problem for them and

Read More

they were open to catering for all of our requests.
We had our final meeting the week before the wedding, after our tasting and left with a great sense of ease that everything was under control. The night before the wedding we dropped off the wedding cake, sweets and treats, favours, photos, decorations you name it and they had them all set perfectly before we arrived from the Church.
On the day itself everything ran smoothly (even though the All Ireland replay match that was neck on neck and had the crowd captivated so we had to delay the meal at the last minute. Again, the team showed how easily they could adapt to unexpected circumstances on the day). The meal was superb, we could not find fault with it, much to our relief as we had lots of food lovers among us! Tom was our main contact for the day and looked after us very well and kept in contact with us throughout the day without being intrusive.
The fish and chips at the band interval were a big hit after a few drinks! We danced the night away until the early hours.
All staff were well presented and polite to us and our guests. There was plenty of accommodation options for our guests and many opted for houses as they had family travelling with them, hotel rooms were also available.
There were also lots of lovely little surprises for the Bride and Groom on the day to make it even more special – I won’t ruin the surprise for future Brides & Grooms by detailing those here. I will say they added that extra touch by going that extra mile.
If you are thinking of booking your wedding here, rest assured your stress levels will be dropped in half as they take all the hard work and worry out of the planning. They have your day under control. They are the experts, trust their advice on what works and just spend your energy on enjoying the lead up to your big day and not worrying about your venue and meal choices!

of the hotels in our area and, on the high recommendation of family and friends who had previously attended weddings in the hotel, we decided to meet with the wedding team in the Kenmare Bay hotel.
From the very moment we entered the hotel to discuss our wedding plans, we both knew this was the venue for us to have our special day.
We were greeted so warmly and friendly and really made to feel that our wedding day would be as important to the wedding team in the Kenmare Bay, as it was to us, and our families.
This never changed right throughout the planning of the wedding and the wedding team were only ever a phone call away to help and guide us with wedding menus/wedding lists/seating etc. This being the case right up to the morning of the wedding.
When it eventually came to our wedding day, my husband and I had no problem relaxing and enjoying the day from start to finish, knowing that we, and especially our guests, were in good hands.
The food and drink were exceptional and having a good Irish wedding!!!!These were high on our priority list and we were certainly not let down. It really was such an enjoyable special day and we were so glad that the Kenmare Bay hotel was our venue of choice and will hold such happy memories from the day there for many a year to come!

We were blown away by the beautiful layout of the dining hall, it was everything we had expected and more. The dinner bell was punctual and the service was excellent with a piping hot and delicious meal served up to us by very welcoming and friendly staff.

The day of the wedding Munster were playing the semi final of the Heineken cup it was on BT only which had to be got by the hotel. I rang Tom when i heard it within an hour he contacted me to say he had arranged it would be shown on the two televisions during the drinks reception I was delighted to hear it and our guests were delighted as they got to check into the hotel and enjoy watching the game having a few drinks before the meal.

The Meal was absolutely delicious so well done to the kitchen staff our loads of our guests kept saying it was one of the BEST WEDDING MEALS they had ever eaten.

I have no hesitation in recommending the Kenmare Bay hotel for a wedding or any social events people have. They are a absolutely fantastic bunch to deal with. Keep up the good work ye are doing as its working. My guests are still craving about the venue itself and the fantastic food they had.

Wishing ye all the very best in the year ahead. Cant wait to visit yer hotel for dinner and drinks soon.

We got married in the Kenmare Bay Hotel in March 2017, we are not from the area but have visited Kenmare annually for the last 10 years so making the decision to get married in Kenmare was important to us. We were very reliant on the hotel for suggestions and recommendations as we were not local and

Read More

right from the start they could not have been more helpful. As both of our families had a distance to travel we wanted to make it more of a wedding weekend rather then just one day and from when we first sat down with Sile she could not have done more to help us achieve this. The options of the houses, lodges and hotel rooms were great and allowed all guests to find what suited them.(The houses/lodges were a big hit with our guests)

A lot of our family arrived the evening before the wedding and all the staff were brilliant from that point on. That's where Tom came to the fore, ensuring all our guests were settled in and made feel right at home.

Our ceremony took place in the hotel and from first thing that morning it was great to see all our plans come into play. It rained all day long and the hotel staff were very quick to help us find the best areas for photos and to get us all to and from the houses for the ceremony. Tom was just brilliant on the day, in particular when he escorted the late arriving mother of the bride to her chair at the top of the room it was a lovely touch and very much appreciated. When it came to the meal itself we knew the Kenmare Bay had a great reputation for food, but our meal on the day exceeded all expectations and our guests were raving about it for weeks after. The transition from meal to after party was seamless and that trend continued for the rest of the evening.

We couldn't be happier with how the weekend went, in particular the day itself, and would really like to thank the Kenmare Bay for making it as special as it was.

The kenmare Bay has fantastic packages and Id recommend them in a heartbeat. the hotel also has fantastic facilities for kids so there's no fear of them getting bord. I can't wait to go back and stay again in the future.

My husband and I had an amazing Christmas wedding at the Kenmare Bay hotel! The hotel looked stunning and it was all we could have hoped for to make our day so special. From beginning to end Tom our wedding planner made the whole wedding an enjoyable relaxed experience.Our family and friends had a

ball and remarked on all the little touches and details from the hampers of goodies in the ladies toilets to meals being delivered to the guest houses on site for little kids who were too exhausted to stay up for the reception. Tom used so much initiative and was so kind and helpful to us and all of our guests. The food was outstanding!!!! Many of our wedding party came up to us after the wedding to comment on the standard of the food. Exceptional. Our guests were welcome to party all night. It was such a fun relaxed wedding which went seamlessly that I would recommend this hotel highly for anyone thinking of having a wedding in Kenmare.

Having just gotten married in the Kenmare Bay, we cannot recommend the hotel highly enough to anybody thinking of booking their wedding there.

team at the hotel were extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome each time we visited throughout the year. There wasn’t one request that was too much trouble for them and everything we asked for was accommodated.
The wedding day itself couldn’t have went any better, running extremely smoothly. Tom deserves a special thanks here, we genuinely didn’t have one single complaint and we really appreciate the effort that was put in by him and all the other staff. All of our guests commented on the exquisite service and the beautiful food that was served, the only complaint being that they all ate too much as it was so nice :)
All the above did not stop after the wedding and we enjoyed another few days with the Kenmare bay and their warm hospitality.
The hotel and the town will now always be a special place for us and we will be returning regularly.

We want to pass on to you and all the fantastic team at the Kenmare Bay Hotel our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for helping us achieve the wedding of our dreams.
From our very first contact with you Sile you were so kind and caring and so helpful. You were always so available for any queries we

had. Thank you for the recommendations for the flowers and hair they were fantastic. You definitely know your stuff.
And we will never forget how accommodating you were when we had to change our dates and how nothing was too much trouble.
Hanneke was fantastic organising all our accommodation needs. She was brilliant and was so helpful again with any little tweaks we had to make.
Tom was an absolute gent to deal with and listened to us and made sure the wedding day ran smoothly and without a hitch, without us having to worry about it.
I remember on the day thinking I couldn’t believe how effortlessly the day seemed to be running. But that was due to Tom and Helen and all the team.
The menu tasting was fantastic and ye made us feel so special and it was just a "taster" of things to come. It is the little touches that ye did that made us feel special.
The whole week of the wedding there was nothing we could fault ye on.
All our guests were all delighted with the hotel rooms and the cottages are fantastic and were constantly coming up to us complimenting us on the beautiful wedding feast. The food was out of this world. We knew we were in safe hands with ye in the Kenmare Bay Hotel but honestly the food, the venue, everything surpassed our wildest dreams.
The professionalism ye exhibited was amazing while still having that personal touch.
We have been recommending ye to everyone.
Thank you all for making our dreams come true.
We are so looking forward to seeing ye all next year and for many years to come .
Kind Regards

We had our wedding at the Kenmare Bay Hotel in June 2016 and were blown away by the overall experience. The venue itself was exactly what we were looking for in terms of food, atmosphere, scenery and overall experience. We had booked 6 holiday homes for the whole weekend. It was fantastic as

everyone could go from house to house at their ease. Tom and the rest of the staff were nothing but helpful in the run up and during the course of our weekend-we couldn't praise them enough.

As a wedding venue we couldn't fault anything. The food was out of this world on both days and all our guests commented on the quality of food on offer. The the fillet beef, the dessert, the breakfast-it was all amazing. The buffet breakfast served to both houses the morning of the wedding has to be seen to be believed!

The hotel is within walking distance of kenmare town which made it easy for guest to venture into at their ease throughout the weekend

The venue played a huge part in the success of our weekend and the amount of our guests who are still talking about your venue is testament to that.

Myself and my wife can't wait to go back down, thanks again

The Kenmare Bay really pulled out all the stops for us, from the initial meet to the day afterwards they were top notch and always willing to go that extra mile to make our big day run fantastically.

The planning process with Tom our wedding coordinator went smoothly, no request no matter how

small or large was dealt with a can do attitude and that was very much re-assuring as it meant we could focus our planning on other aspects of the big day. We found the rest of the hotels staff to be of the same mindset and were always super helpful and quick to address any questions/queries we had.

The day itself went like clockwork for us and the hotel staff/management played a huge part in making things run smoothly. We availed of the Hotels own wedding car, Mossie the chauffeur helped calm any nerves on the way to and from the church. All in all our experience was fantastic and we'd be more than happy to recommend this venue for anyone considering the Kenmare Bay Hotel.

The venue itself ticked every box for us and the hotel went down well with all our guests which speaks volumes for us. For anyone looking at a wedding venue in the Kenmare area they should give this venue some consideration and get in touch with Tom.

Joanne and I got engaged in September 2015 and because of our long association with Kenmare and because I had been to a cousins wedding in the Kenmare Bay Hotel it was an easy choice for us to have our reception there. From the time we sent our first email of interest Tom, Hanneke and all the staff

Read More

were first class.

The build up to the wedding that can be such a stressful time for the bride and groom was made much easier because of the help of Tom. He gave us his personal mobile number and told us he was available at any time. Any query we had was answered promptly.

Joanne and I got married on the 20th of August 2016. We had arranged a meet and greet on the Friday night as most of our guests were travelling from Dublin. The hotel never seemed to be under pressure in the bar, restaurant or with the accommodation even though they had a wedding on the Friday aswell. On the day of the wedding we were able to get into the function room early so we could put our touches to it. Tom was there making sure the room was perfect. After the ceremony everything went like clockwork, Mossie the Chauffeur keeping an eye on the watch as the photographer did his job and had us back to the hotel in plenty of time for us to mingle with our guests before the meal.

We had had a super ceremony and the speeches that followed the meal were amazing but the meal put on by the chefs far outshone everything and was the talk and praise of the 130 guests that attended the wedding. There were 3 vegans at the wedding and each of them spoke very highly of the menu variety they were given. We had decided to have Tayto sandwiches as part of our afters food. It might seem like an odd request but it went down a dream and was available throughout the night.

A relation of mine asked me late in the evening how I found the day, I loved it all, to which he said, Your King and Queen for a day and everybody wants you. Tom and his staff did everything to assure we us of that and of our Thrones.

The food was top class and we were delighted with the free flowing wine we had requested.

We had the most magical day thanks to everybody in the Kenmare Bay Hotel! Our guests are still raving about it.

Thank you to everyone at the Kenmare Bay for making our wedding so special.

I cannot rate Tom highly enough he is a huge asset to your hotel and the number one reason we decided to have our wedding with you. We had visited the hotel as guests before but had never been to a wedding there. We

really liked him from the moment we met him, he was genuinely a nice person and wasn't in your face like a lot of other wedding coordinators we had met in other hotels. We knew from the moment we met him that we were in safe hands.

At the night of the tasting he was brilliant and when we told him we weren't fond of the fish he made other suggestions to us that weren't on the menu. He was so easy to deal with. I should not forget to mention Alan too who was excellent to deal with.

The night before the wedding Tom took me up to see the room. Even though I had seen the layout of the room before I just couldn't get over how amazing it looked. I was on cloud 9. The lodges were absolutely gorgeous and the breakfast that Tom provided us with on the morning of the wedding was fantastic.

The driver Mossy was lovely and his wife Helen was equally fabulous. Everyone we met at your hotel are fantastic workers and make you feel so special. You are very lucky to have such a high quality staff.

Everything on the wedding day was exceptional from the food, the staff and the accommodation. All our guests had nothing but positive things to say. Your hotel is exemplary and exceeds all possible hopes and expectations. I look forward to visiting many times in the future and hope to see the same lovely people there.

Thank you and your team so much for an amazing wedding day.

Hanneke took care of our accommodation requests so well, she was always available to answer calls or emails with any questions we had. On the wedding day we were greeted on the red carpet and brought to the dining room for a few moments of quiet to enjoy some canapés before the busy evening ahead. Tom also helped to direct out photographers towards the best areas for photographs. He really exceeded our expectations. The meal was stunning and much complimented. The wine was equally delicious and free flowing! The bar staff were attentive and didn't keep our thirsty guests waiting! The band were made to feel very welcome and set up the equipment easily and with no fuss thanks to the management. In the aftermath of the wedding, any items that had been lost were carefully stowed away for safekeeping until we were able to collect such items. Every detail was accounted for. We enjoyed our special day so much thanks to the brilliant team at the Kenmare Bay hotel. We would highly recommend this wedding venue if you are looking for great care and attention to detail on your wedding day!

Many travelled from different countries and thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The day itself went without a hitch and the room looked absolutely beautiful thanks to the lovely Helen and her staff. We didn't have to worry about a thing and I think was probably why we had the best day, we were so relaxed knowing the day was in such capable hands! The food was outstanding, all of the guests raved about it. The guests glasses were never empty and waiting staff were very friendly. The hotel itself looked beautiful from the red carpet being laid out for us on arrival and we were greeted by Tom with a glass of sparkles and he was first to offer his congratulations. From then on Tom was always at hand to make sure we were happy with everything and that the evening ran so smoothly. The hotels chauffeur Mossie was wonderful and even got some snaps of us, one of which was put in an engraved frame and left alongside bubbles and chocolate in our honeymoon suite - We thought this was an exceptional touch and the best surprise, we will treasure this frame and it will always remind us of how wonderful our wedding at Kenmare Bay hotel was!

Tom the co-ordinator was amazing he literally planned everything we didn't have to do anything and I'm delighted because I know we couldn't have done as great a job as what Tom did he thought of everyone and everything. Our guests were blown away with everything: the hotel itself which has so many stunning areas for photos, the food which was exquisite, the service was top class and the friendly staff made it a memorable and enjoyable day not just for us but for all our family and friends.

The food at the wedding was lovely and again I had many guests commenting on the dishes and the speed of the service.

A special mention has to go to Tom who is absolutely excellent at his job. He was always there on the day ensuring the bridal party had everything we needed.

I would highly recommend this hotel for any wedding.

Thanks again to the Kenmare Bay Hotel.

We got married in the Kenmare Bay Hotel in April 2015 I can safely say that there are no words to describe how happy we were. From the minute we met with Sile and Tom both were always so helpful answering all the silly little questions we had along the way. Nothing was too much trouble. On the day

itself Tom was just amazing and the lovely surprises for our big day made us feel really special. He made us feel so relaxed. What can I say about the food........ wow!! Every course was a piece of heaven. All our guests complimented on the food and the attention from all the staff. We had a few dietary requirements and they were taken care of with no fuss. The whole day and evening was flawless. I would recommend this hotel to any couple looking to get married.

Kenmare Bay Hotel is an amazing place to have your wedding. The wedding co-ordinator Tom was so professional and nothing was a bother to him. The hotel team give you great attention to detail.

our guests so well. We heard from many guests about how much they loved the food and how it was the best food they had ever tasted at a wedding. They kept the wine flowing as well which is always a plus! We had such a wonderful day and are so happy we chose the Kenmare Bay Hotel to have our wedding in. We look forward to going back this year for our wedding anniversary. xxxxx

The Kenmare Bay was our first choice for our wedding day having been a guests of another wedding we we're able to review how our guests would feel very easily.
The food of the Kenmare Bay outstripped any rival nearby and the accommodation was able to host our numbers without thinking about shuttle

Read More

buses or dispersed accommodation for guests.
The process of booking was easily started, the hotel staff (Síle and Tom) were readily available to discuss preliminary prices and a breakdown, the flow of the day, and schedules.
Their value was shown in their in depth wedding management experience and the care and concern for our booking despite having done it for many others.
The lead up to our wedding had plenty of questions from flowers, to table decoration, to band setup, to room layout, all configurations and thoughts on the individual minutia were carefully considered. Their experience allowed us to relax and become more at ease with our wedding planning and relieved any stress very early on.
The day itself was done on autopilot, we could see all our guest enjoyed themselves and the hotel was able to hit every detail perfectly accommodating for long speeches and late servings.
I would strongly recommend the Kenmare Bay for any wedding size, the room setting is beautiful and the location ideal for travel. The Kenmare Bay made the first day of our marriage all the better, when we look back and know we chose wisely.

Having been to my sister in laws wedding here back in 2013 we knew there was only one choice when coming to booking our own wedding in July 2015. From the first email with Sile to leaving the day after the wedding, the whole process was stress free. After dealing with Sile, we met Tom, what to say

about Tom... you kind of fall in love with him! Everything was so well organised and seemed to be no trouble at all. He was only a phone call away when I needed him. Hanneke was on the ball with reservations, constantly keeping us up to date and helping out all our guests.

Our wedding day itself was a very calm day, despite a few nerves. Mossy the chauffeur arrived early, he is a gem. We had great fun with him and he kept us fed and watered in the car during the photos!

We were blown away when we saw the function room on the day, Helen accounted for every attention to detail. The food was amazing, the staff were so attentive and it made the day so enjoyable for us. We sat back and enjoyed the whole day.

A lot of our guests are still commenting on the meal ( the wine also :) )

There are so many added extras that the Kenmare Bay provide - Ill leave these as a surprise to future couples. I would 100% recommend here for any couples thinking of booking and we look forward to staying there again.

Thanks so much for everything dee and john x

qualm. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and menu tasting experience prior to the Big Day. It was difficult to choose with so many tasty options (especially the desserts!)
From early morning on the day with the arrival of Mossie our chauffeur it was all go. He ensured a timely entrance at the Church and was ready to greet us again after the ceremony with light refreshments to keep hunger at bay. On arrival at the hotel Tom extended a warm welcome and Helen ensured our entrance as the new Mr and Mrs was perfect. The wedding feast was amazing. The food was delicious and we certainly were not left hungry. Service was efficient and all the serving staff were very friendly and helpful to all our guests. Both Tom and Helen ensured we were well looked after throughout the day and the following morning. The Kenmare Bay Hotel have an excellent rapport with excellent service providers; from Eugene Ferris, our photographer who provided amazing photos (and even assisted with the correct placing of button hole flowers), Patsy from Advanced Videos who ensured every moment was captured for us to treasure, Gary in O’Carroll’s Cakes who provided a master piece and delicious gluten free cake, and The Breen’s Band and DJ who ensured the dance floor was packed all night. We thoroughly enjoyed our special day - a day that goes by so quickly, yet a day that in the end we can treasure knowing that we have made truly special memories with the service of The Kenmare Bay Hotel & Resort.

We had both our wedding ceremony and reception at the Kenmare Bay Hotel. From the start of our planning, every question and query we had was answered by Sile, Alan, Tom and Andrew. Nothing was too much to ask for (and I had a lot of requests).
The venue suited us perfectly as we live locally so it

meant that my family who were travelling could stay in the hotel/ houses, and my husband’s family were close enough to walk home at the end of the night. We chose to have the ceremony at the hotel at 4pm, which gave me the morning to relax and get ready without rushing. I stayed in one of the Luxury Lodges the night before and had plenty of space... which was ideal for the hair/ makeup artist to spread out, and for all my visitors popping in and out. And it meant I could escape upstairs when I started to get emotional!
After our ceremony we were able to go downstairs for our champagne and canapé reception and chat with our families and friends- no travelling from venue to venue. The weather wasn't great but it didn't affect us as we didn't have to leave the building. The function room is so well set up and having been to a number of weddings at the hotel myself, I knew that the food and service was superb so I didn't have to worry about anything from then on.
We have had so many compliments about our wedding day- a few people have even said it's the best wedding they have been to! We couldn't have managed without all the help and assistance from the Kenmare Bay. I would recommend it without a doubt. Thank you!

The hotel provided our beautiful wedding car free of charge and we were chauffeured by the lovely Mossy Foley, who looked after our every need. He had the most delicious picnic for us for our journey that day and we were very glad of it!

Tom, the Manager, was a true gentleman and a complete professional on each occasion we met. He made our day run so seamlessly and added some really nice unexpected surprises for us. He offered great advice to us prior to the day which made us feel like we had nothing to worry about on our big day.

When we arrived at the hotel we were meet by Tom our excellent planner. He and his staff had the room the way we imaged it and the chef gave us an amazing meal and our glasses weren't let go empty. The whole day was magical and our bedroom had it all its own separate living room and kitchen and a super bedroom. The following day the staff kept on making our stay as comfortable as possible, giving us a champagne breakfast. We can't recommend the Kenmare Bay Hotel enough it's a beautiful hotel in a beautiful location. It's so good that my brother is getting married there in 2015 cause they loved it as much as we did. To some it up, it's like a luxury home away from home cause your made feel so welcomed and so relaxed. We will be back many times more.

From

initial enquiry right through to enjoying our sumptuous breakfast the morning after our big day, we could not fault this hotel in any way. Tom is simply a pleasure to deal with and was always available to take a call, be it for advice, to answer my questions or simply to offer some local knowledge. Completely professional, hugely knowledgeable and a top bloke too!
With our whole family descending to Kenmare the weekend of the wedding I was delighted with both the hotel accommodation and indeed the various lodges and houses we booked between us all. Excellent standard holiday homes, modern, super clean and just to short walk across from the main hotel. Hanneke in reservations was amazing and worked magic in sorting out everyone’s accommodation requirements! The rates for both the hotel and holiday homes were really reasonable too which also helped!
The day itself went so smooth and I didn't have to worry about one little detail at any stage. The welcome we received was just so warm and genuine. The food was fantastic (which is a great review coming from my husband who is a chef!) and all my guests enjoyed their meal thoroughly. All in all, would love to do the whole day again at the Kenmare Bay Hotel.

The room rates for our guests were excellent and all bookings were made with ease with Hanneke. The hotel also provided a wedding car which was driven by the lovely Mossy. Mossy even brought us to a beautiful park in Kenmare where we got the most beautiful photographs which we will cherish forever. The function room looked amazing on the day with beautiful centre pieces and cake stand. The two bars in the function room also meant that our guests did not have to queue for a drink.
The food was mouthwatering- from the canapés, to the meal, to the wonderfully presented fish and chips. A year on and guests are still talking about the wonderful meal they had in the Kenmare Bay!

Tom was our main point of contact with the hotel and he was a complete professional in every aspect. Absolutely everything we requested was done from the table layout and room decor to the drinks reception and menu. Tom was always available to us in the build up to the wedding and he really impressed us with his care and attention towards us. Overall the staff at the hotel were really friendly and accommodating. The meal was very well run and the service was excellent. I could not find a single fault with the hotel. The reason I got married there was because two good friends of mine got married there too and had nothing but positives to say about it.
We are very much looking forward to going back to the hotel for our first anniversary.

The Kenmare Bay Hotel was always going to be our number one choice of venue for our wedding in January 2014.
My sister had her reception at the hotel in the summer of 2012 at which all the guests had an amazing time.

the hotel from start to finish.
Tom, Sile and all the staff could not have been more helpful. Tom was always at the other end of the phone and made our journey to our special day such a lovely experience.
We had a lovely time at our meal tasting just before Christmas last year.
It was a magical setting with all the beautiful festive decorations and Tom looking after all our needs and treating us like royalty for the night.
To conclude the venue was perfect, the service was brilliant and the food was amazing.
I cannot recommend this hotel more.

From the moment we got engaged I had nowhere else in my mind for our wedding reception but the Kenmare Bay. I have been to many weddings there as a guest and could not fault it in any way. As the bride I also could not fault it. From the moment we started dealing with Tom and the team it all went

so smoothly. Having to organise the wedding from Galway was a worry because of the distance but there was no need with Tom and gang being on call by phone and email at all times. And as my hubby said on the day there was never a "No" said to us about anything we wanted!!!!

The accommodation is absolutely fantastic with rooms at the hotel, houses and lodges at excellent reduced rates. This was very important to us as we had so many guests travelling and staying for the weekend. Tom also organised buses for the guests the morning of the wedding to bring them to the church and back to the hotel.

The function room was amazing on the day. It was a winter wonderland with the candelabras lighting on each table and the Christmas decorations sparkling. The food was just fantastic. We had a few guests with dietary requirements and this was looked after without fuss. The service by all staff from serving food to serving drinks at the bar was so efficient and ran without a hitch on the day and left the guests relaxed and able to enjoy the night.

The little touches that they do are so meaningful and something you can treasure always. I won't say what they are as they were such beautiful surprises to me I don't want to ruin it for others!!

Our guests were raving about the hotel - from the accommodation - to the food - to the staff - and so much more and after nearly a year on they still are!!! That just speaks for itself.

Our Wedding Day 28th December 2013 was the most magical day and a huge chuck of that is thanks to Tom and the Team at the Kenmare Bay Hotel.

I have recommended the Kenmare Bay hotel to many of my friends because of the friendly staff who make you feel so special on the build-up to the wedding. In the days following the wedding we received really great feedback from our guests about their experience of the venue which reflects the great wedding service which is provided by the hotel.
I look forward to attending many more weddings of my friends and family at the Kenmare Bay Hotel.

The Kenmare Bay Hotel and it's staff really did pull out all the stops for our wedding in July this year.
We knew from the start that we would have a big number but we hoped it wouldn't go over the 350. In the end 389 adults and children sat for the meal. The Kenmare Bay Hotel and staff worked

efficiently on the day and were so kind and got anything anybody needed. Everything went off without a hitch and on time. The food was amazing, no one could fault it. Everyone's food came out hot and really quickly considering we had 39 tables. The bridal suite was amazing and it was great that we could stay for the two nights. We weren't able to get up for breakfast the day after the wedding but Tom arranged to have breakfast brought to our room. We were delighted. They accommodated both families and our friends in houses and holiday homes that they have on the grounds. It was great that everyone was so close and able to stay for a long weekend together and didn't have a long way to go in the early hours after the wedding. They also had free use of the leisure facilities.
The Kenmare Bay Hotel and it's staff really did accommodate our every need, anything we needed we got, anything we were worried about we were reassured it was okay and everything was done to the highest possible standards.
We would highly recommend the Kenmare Bay for anybody thinking of having a wedding and we thank them so much for everything they did for us.

The Kenmare Bay Hotel is the perfect venue for a wedding. We loved every minute of our stay at the hotel. Our Wedding Day went perfectly because of the staff in the hotel. They were really friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend the Kenmare Bay Hotel for a wedding venue.

From the moment we starting thinking about having our wedding at the Kenmare Bay we could not have been accommodated more. We dealt with Tom and he was extremely helpful. We only had 8 months to organise but this was not any problem for the hotel. We had our meal tasting 6 weeks before the wedding

and it was a really enjoyable experience, with personalised menus and Tom looking after all our needs. Any questions or queries I had were always solved quickly by Tom, who made everything I wanted happen very easily.
All our guests had an excellent reduced rate when staying in the hotel for our wedding.
Onto the day of our wedding I couldn't have asked for more. Mossie was at my house in plenty of time for the church and there was a lovely surprise in the car for us on the way down to the hotel after the church. When we landed at the hotel we were treated like royalty, we loved it!!! We got to sit on our own outside with a glass of bubbly while the guests orders were being taken, which was lovely and relaxing. The meal was fantastic and we couldn't have asked for better service, people are still talking about the quality of the food.
There was also a surprise for us when we got back to our room later that night.
We really enjoyed our wedding in the Kenmare Bay Hotel and we will be guests next June for a friends wedding which we are really looking forward to.

The Kenmare Bay Hotel was the first hotel we visited when trying to decide on a venue for our wedding. We immediately fell in love with the Hotel and staff and subsequently found it extremely difficult to find an alternative venue that could come close to matching the value, beauty, attention and

support we had experienced.
The banqueting room was stunning, clean and bright and afforded many options for the layout of tables and seating.
The menu was extensive and versatile and included many options as standard, where as other Hotels would charge for individual courses.
The staff were excellent. We would especially like to mention the Banqueting Manager,Tom, who was extremely attentive, helpful and accommodating and his attention to detail was exemplary. Nothing was a problem for him and he always made himself available to us for help and advice whenever we needed him.
In short we would have no problem recommending the Kenmare bay hotel to anyone. They helped make one of the biggest days in our lives completely flawless.
For us, the Kenmare Bay Hotel definitely gets 5 stars

staff were so welcoming and Tom discussed all our options which led to the most magical day of our lives. We were treated like royalty from the beginning, anything that was asked of Tom he went beyond the call of duty to make sure our day would be perfect and exactly what we wanted it to be.

We both thought that our wedding day would be hectic, but we were mistaken. The day ran so smoothly and exceeded our expectations.
As a bride that is a total perfectionist I had ideas that only I envisioned but Tom and his staff made my dreams come true, everything was done so perfectly I could not believe the ball room when I saw it.
The reception was amazing and the food was done to perfection. The staff were unbelievable constantly checking to see if our guests were ok, Tom was also checking in on myself and Dave throughout the day making sure we were happy with everything. We received so many positive comments from our wedding guests which made me so happy that I chose your hotel.

I would highly recommend The Kenmare bay hotel to everyone, it has that special feel about it and I will never forget how our wedding day made us feel,

From the moment we saw the Kenmare bay hotels brochure at the wedding fair in the RDS we were both hooked. There was something about it that made us want to see more. We went down to view it and Tom and the staffs were so welcoming. Tom went through everything with us and was open to all our

suggestions for the wedding day.
Tom was always there to take a call from us or answer an email. Sile and Hanneke were great when it came to our guests booking accommodation. (Especially with my 2 sisters who had specific requirements)!!! Our night for menu tasting was made special by a lovely welcoming note and a treats left in our bedroom. The food was delicious and came with beautiful personalised menus.
In the weeks leading up to the wedding Tom was on hand to help with any last minute requests!! The day before the wedding, Gerard arrived down with a cake that was slightly damaged due to our lack of knowledge on how to ice a cake. The kitchen staff helped to make it presentable!!
Gerard also put an arch he had made himself up in the reception room. That's one thing we loved about this hotel. There was never a "No" said to us about anything we suggested :-)
The day itself was amazing. Poor Mossie had a long drive to my house. He was ready with umbrellas when it lashed out of the heavens. There was a lovely picnic basket in the car, and as the rain was so bad we actually ate it in the car. Cups of tea and all!! Mossie was great, so friendly and helped calm the nerves.
The red carpet was out for us and Tom at the door to welcome us with champagne. He guided us in and let us take time for photographs and have a few canapés.
He took us up to see the reception room. It was beautifully decorated with purple bows, purple lighting, candelabras and Lillies. Our favours were on each placemat along with a scroll we had made for each guest. The cakes looked stunning too!!
Here we met Helen. Helen was brilliant. She told us to take a moment to ourselves before the guests arrived in. She took the guest book for us and said she'd pass it around the tables.
We then met Alan. Alan was also brilliant, so friendly, helpful and professional. He told us he'd ring the bell for the guests to make their way into the reception room and he'd let us know then when we'd be called to make our grand entrance.
Throughout the night Tom, Alan and the rest of the staff were on hand to help in any way. We had an amazing wedding day and a fantastic weekend stay at Kenmare Bay Hotel.
We would definitely give it a 5 star for how well run the establishment is. For its cleanliness (we noted how often we saw staff cleaning, a definite thumbs up), for its food and above all for its staff. The staff really went above and beyond our expectations. They made our day extremely special!!!

finger except show up for a menu tasting and an overnight stay which we enjoyed immensely!
From Mossie, the hotel Chauffeur, arriving to the house on the morning to leaving the hotel on Monday afternoon, the hotel could not do enough for us.
Both us and our guests were greeted with a warm welcome and extremely efficient staff to look after every need from drinks to rooms and everything in between. The service, food and accommodation was out of this world and Tom was on hand all day to ensure everything ran smoothly, which it did! A few extras in our room was such a lovely surprise and just made our day more special!
Some family stayed a second night and had an equally fantastic meal on Sunday night and lounged for the night in various comfy areas off reception!
We cannot say enough about the Kenmare Bay and the staff and will continue to recommend to anyone who will listen! Thank you all for making our day so perfect, 5/5 for everything!

All staff were very efficient, courteous and helpful at all times throughout the day. Many of the wedding party who stayed overnight in the hotel spoke highly of the accommodation and the service.

Everything ran very smoothly on the day, and a lot of our guests have commented on this.
I have to compliment Tom Meagher in particular. The food tasted absolutely amazing and was exactly the same as our menu tasting. I have heard many stories from couples where the food on the wedding day was not up to the standard of the menu tasting but I am glad to say that was definitely not the case with us.

The BBQ the night after the wedding went just as well as the wedding day itself. Even though we had more guests for the BBQ than I originally thought, the staff dealt with it excellently and there was more than enough food for everyone. Everybody was delighted with the music also.

All in all, I really can’t sing their praises enough. Mark and I were both absolutely delighted with the day that you gave us. All the staff did you very proud and they are the hotel's best advertisement.

Definitely a five star rating and well deserved!!!!

Organising a wedding is stressfull enough especiall with a baby so having a hotel that are very helpful took alot of the hassle out of it. Thanks again to all the staff and we would recommmend the hotel for a stress free, highly enjoyable wedding with first class service.

We had family staying in the holiday homes and they were delighted with the service they received, it was like home away from home, all their needs were catered for.

We believe that you could not get a better team of people Tom, Hanneke, Sile and staff or a nicer venue. They were excellent to deal with extremely professional and we were made to feel very special.

Tom is a effecient wedding co-ordinator and the hotel has exceptional service, one that would in my option be very hard to find in a different venue.

Taking care of our beauty needs just before our big day we headed to the spa. The attention to detail and relaxing services on offer was just what we needed. Our therapist was knowledgeable and very professional. I only wished I lived nearer to avail of the services more often!

The little surprises the hotel organises for you is lovely! (I don't want to spoil it!)

We had family staying in the lodges,cottages and hotel. The rooms are designed with luxury in mind. As I'm sure with all wedidngs the age bracket is from young to mature. The Kenmare Bay Hotel caters to everyone.

We couldn't recommend this Hotel and Tom enough. It was a pleasure to deal with a professional, efficent service and I can't wait to go back for a luxury relaxing wk end, only slighty different from our wedding but I'm positive it won't disappoint!

There aren’t words to describe a Kenmare Bay Hotel wedding! From the minute we decided to go with Kenmare Bay it was so easy to work with them all. And on the day from the arrival of Mossie at the house with the car to when we said goodbye to Tom on Monday morning it was a fantastic experience.

We’ve had fabulous feedback and the shell for the presentation of the fish went down a storm. We’re so happy we went with the hotel.

Small details mean so much and with Kenmare Bay there were lots - we got champagne in our room when we went for our tasting; a car was sent to collect me and take me to the church and then to take my husband and I to the reception; champagne and a picnic box were sent in the car; Tom was there to greet us on the red carpet, but he was also hard at work serving in the dining room during our meal; there was champagne, a card and a wedding photo of us in a silver engraved frame in the bridal suite; lights like a starry sky over the comfy bed................ I could keep going!!! If you're thinking about having a wedding in this hotel, think no more - just book it! You so won't regret it. We don't, and we can't wait to go back for our first anniversary dinner.

who were friendly,professional,courteous and very understanding. Every email and phone call were promptly answered and efficiently dealt with. We felt no request was too big or too small. Even last minute,night before and on the day, brideszilla wishes were granted with a smile and no problem attitude! Our guests booked their accommodation with ease and with so much choice-lodges and houses for large families and groups of friends. Fantastic room rates for doubles, triples and families! Those who made it a long weekend enjoyed your top class facilities. The pool was a big hit- one guest even swimming 4 times in one day! Nothing prepared us for the day itself though. It was magical. From Mossy the car driver(the great guy whose frinedly banter made me swallow my nervous and lonely tears on the drive to the church), to being greeted at the hotel which radiated a relaxed and confident atmosphere amongst its staff. Our guests indulged in canapés and sparkling wine-the foyer was bubbling with excitement and anticipation. The function room looked amazing-one guest reporting that upon climbing the stairs you entered a whole new world! The food-WOW! Service ensured that all 272 guests were eating at the same time. The food was scrumptious and even our big appetited uncles had to turn away extra helpings! After the flowing wine and with full bellies the crowd danced the night away only to be interrupted by tea/coffee and more delicious delights. Bedtimes varied. 5am eventually called us to our beautiful suite! Breakfast the next morning was delightful. Friends and family were all a chatter about the fantastic food, service etc. Some even booking in to stay an extra night. All in all The Kenmare Bay Hotel, its surroundings and staff, made our day!

much better. In the run-up to the wedding everything was kept easy and simple, the wedding co-ordinator Tom gave us great advice on menus, layout, timing etc. We got any information we asked for, but weren't bombarded with questions or emails. The hotel sent a clear and easy to use template for the table plan and were very accommodating to all our requests. As the majority of our guests were travelling and many staying the weekend I found the reservations staff very helpful in managing bookings and making sure all our families were taken care of. On the day itself we couldn't have been happier with everything. The guests raved about the venue, the room, the staircase, the chandeliers, the view, and a good many told me that it was the best wedding meal they had ever had. I agree - it's just as good as cooked-to-order in any good restaurant, you'd never think they had to dish up for almost 200 a the same time. In summary - the Kenmare Bay Hotel realised my dream wedding for me.

We had a great day at the Kenmare Bay Hotel and all the staff were brilliant and very supportive. Everything was taken care of, before and during the big day. Also our guests where very happy with location, staff and food. Katja & Mike

My Husband and I got married in this hotel in March this year. I have to first start off by saying it was just everything that we could have wished for and more. The little extra touches are brilliant and they have a few surprises for you which was great. Tom the wedding co-ordinator was fantastic

he is a credit to the hotel made everything flow really well and looked after all of your needs from start to finish. I found the Kenmare Bay hotel online and really liked it from the pictures so we decided to head down for a night to view the hotel. From the moment I stepped into the reception area I know this was the place, the decor is totally to my likely with the staircase, the chandeliers on the ceiling and the fabulous chairs it really is a beautiful hotel. We asked to see the function room and when we went in it just looked fab. Everything was explained about where things would be for a civil ceremony, everybody would be looking out onto mountains which was a fabulous view. The room decor is beautiful along with the hotel itself rooms are great and spacious and it has a leisure centre, is 5 min walk to town of Kenmare which is great.We know it would be the place for us and we booked our wedding for the next year everyone was great any questions I had were dealt with very professional and fast. We made a weekend out of our wedding as everyone was travelling over 2.5 hrs for the wedding , The hotel has self catering cottages and lodges were guest can stay. We stayed in the lodge for 4 days but spent the wedding night in the bridal suite in the hotel. I would highly recommend the lodges everyone commended on them and was a great place for everyone to meet after the wedding the next day and have a few drinks. We had a few children at the wedding and wanted something to keep them busy and Tom organised a kids club for them for a couple of hours while we were having our meal, the kids loved this they had a great time playing games and having face painted! When I seen the room all done up for the civil ceremony I just thought "my god its perfect" from the chair covers, sashes, flowers and candles they all really made the room look beautiful we had the room divided as we had 100 guest at the wedding and the space was just perfect not too small and not too big. The meal itself was the best I ever had at a wedding, everything about it was brilliant there was loads and everything was presented really well Overall the hotel is 5 star standard if you are thinking of getting married here I would say book it, it was the best weekend ever and people are still talking about what a wonderful wedding it was and how fabulous the hotel was. Tom was fantastic he really knows what he is doing and had great ideas and advice for us. Our whole experience with dealing with the hotel was fantastic and would highly recommend it to everyone. I can’t wait for our next trip to the Kenmare Bay Hotel.

The staff at Kenmare Bay are fantastic and they really know how to cater for a big crowd. Our meal was delicious! I got married in February and my guests are still complimenting the meal, and the hotel. In all honesty, I cannot praise Tom, Sue and the rest of the staff at Kenmare Bay enough! Well

We had a brilliant day at the Kenmare Bay Hotel, everyone commented on how nice the hotel was and how great the food was! The staff couldn't have been more helpful on the day and in the lead-up to the wedding. Would highly recommend the Kenmare Bay!

From our first visit to the hotel we just fell in love with it and we can honestly say all of our guests did also. The Kenmare Bay took the stress out of the build up to our wedding, Tom checked in with us on a regular basis to see how all our plans were going and we knew we could contact him at

anytime with any question or query we had. The day itself ran so smoothly from the moment it started the service was fantastic and the food was outstanding. The staff are all so friendly and helpfull and nothing was a problem. The room was decorated lovley the lighting really sets the mood and the mountains in the backroud are beautiful to look out at. None of our guests had anything negative to say, and a lot of them have already planned weekend breaks there for the future. We would have no problem in reccomending The Kenmare Bay hotel as a wedding venue. Danielle & Martin Kelly

the brilliant function room, the gorgeous food and the amazing staff why they have won wedding venue of the year in the past. We choose to stay the weekend with a large group of our family & friends doing the same and even though our wedding was over we were still treated brilliantly with the hotel even putting on sandwiches and teas and coffee complimentary for our guests the day after the wedding.Nothing was too much bother. All in all we could not rate the Kenmare Bay any higher, the whole process from start to finish was simple with a well planned out and thoughtful process by the management which when trying to plan a wedding peace of mind is worth alot.Never once did we have to worry that there would be a problem with our hotel and now it will now always be a very special place to us both and we hope to return for many anniversarys.

We couldn't have had a more perfect wedding day. Right from the start Sue, Tom, Hanneke and all the team at the Kenmare Bay Hotel made us feel that our wedding was as important to them as it was to us. Living in London, we organised much of our wedding over the phone and via email, every response

was prompt and usually started and ended with "No problem!" The wedding day itself couldn't have been more perfect (apart from the rain!) The banqueting suite looked amazing, the meal was superb and we have had so many fabulous comments from our guests about the hotel. No surprise at all then that they won 'Wedding Venue of the Year!' Thank you everyone at the Kenmare Bay for making the most special day of our lives truely superb! John and Tracy Rutherford.

stressful at all but that was due to Tom and the staff at the hotel. On the wedding day itself everything went perfectly and nothing was a problem. A number of guests commented that it was the best wedding meal they had ever had and the staff were so nice and accommodating with every request. Kenmare itself is the most beautiful venue for a wedding. My husband and I had the best weekend of our lives here at the Kenmare Bay. It is a hotel that is simply exceptional at what it does. Anybody contemplating having their wedding here need not give it a second thought you won't be disappointed.

facilities are fantastic & I must say my jaw dropped when I actually saw the function room set up on my wedding day. Tom & the staff did an amazing job & the little touches & attention to detail was fantastic. They really exemplify excellent customer service because they exceeded not only our expectations but our guests still talk about the hotel, the function room, the beautiful food, the accommodation in the hotel, the lodges, & the holiday homes, but most importantly they still praise the staff at the hotel & how brilliant and kind they were. My husband & I actually changed our original wedding venue when we met Sue at the Kenmare Bay. We lost our deposit at that hotel but I still say changing to the Kenmare Bay was the best decision we ever made. They are trustworthy, reliable, ultra professional, & go out of their way to make things special for you & your guests. They have earned a fantastic reputation that is well deserved. When I contrast them with the hotel we had originally booked with there is no comparison in terms of how we were treated as customers & as people. There were so many little things that were stressing me out about the day & the decor, etc, but Tom Meagher is an amazing wedding coordinator & you can sit back & trust him completely. I honestly cannot find fault with anything about the hotel. As I've already said from the moment we booked to the moment we checked out on the Monday after the wedding I have nothing but positive things to say about them. They even thought about things I hadn't and they are so experienced you can just relax knowing you are in competent and caring hands. I wish the hotel the great success it truly deserves.

Five star, from start to finish, Our wedding is still the talk of friends and family, mainly due to the friendly staff and to die for food. We would also like to thank Andrew, Tom, Sue, for giving us both the day of our dreams. If it was possible to go back and change any thing on that day, all

i could think of , is to slow down the clock, so we could enjoy it even more. To anyone thinking of having their wedding in The Kenmare Bay Hotel all i can say is, sit back and enjoy the feeling that you and your bride are not only in professional hands , but also in the company of people who just go the extra mile to make sure your day is as special as possible. Again our thanks, Garry and Martha married the on the 16 th of march 2011.

provide to us from the very moment we met with them 18 months prior to the wedding was just outstanding. They really cared and paid attention to every thing we said, they really wanted us to have the wedding of our dreams. Like most, planning a wedding is a once off, and of course we had ideas of what we wanted of the day and the staff at Kenmare Bay Hotel were able to translate what we were thinking into reality. They really bent over backwards to make sure we had the most perfect day. I would 1000% recommend any couple that are looking for that perfect Wedding Day to get married at this venue. You will not be disappointed.
