Cannot recommend Kinsale Hotel & Spa and the team enough. It is important to mention the team because they are what makes this hotel as special as it is. From the moment we met our wedding coordinator Alison we knew we would be well looked after. Any queries or questions were quickly answered,

sometimes even on her scheduled days off. All of this was true before COVID, and the same stands for when it started to affect weddings. Even though our wedding was still a few months out when we went into lockdown, Alison reached out to let us know that she would let us know if things developed on her side. She did this and more. With every new restriction, she came with a solution and nothing was too much trouble.

On the day, everyone commented on how even though there was only 50 people in the room, it felt full because of how it had been laid out. The food was out of this world; all of our guests still mention it and how it wasn't like typical wedding food - the standard was exceptional it was perfect from starter to dessert to evening food. The packages on offer were by far the most well rounded and best value that we had seen across the venues we went to see, with a lot of options available for each course - it actually made it extremely difficult to pick!

Alison, Ronan and the team made sure everything ran smoothly for the whole day and if there were any issues that needed to be dealt with, we didn't even know! Their professionalism and exceptional standards are second to none. Alison promised us the best day ever when we met her and it was delivered by the bucket load. Cannot recommend Kinsale Hotel and Spa enough :)

Everything that we have to say about our experience with the Kinsale Hotel and Spa is undoubtedly positive but they really surpassed all of our expectations . We first met Alison Walsh, the wedding coordinator for the Kinsale Hotel and Spa, at a wedding fair and we instantly felt that she was the

right fit for us. Every idea we had she responded too with enthusiasm and positivity, never saying 'no' and even giving us better suggestions and ideas. The whole way through the planning process, Alison supported us. Alison put together a personalised wedding package for us so we didn't have to force ourselves into a package that we didn't want.

To explain the professionalism and flexibility of the The Kinsale Hotel & Spa, on the week prior to the wedding on the 16th of March each single day brought a new development because of COVID-19. There were a number of restrictions put in place that we could not foresee. The venue was great with dealing with it all, taking everything in stride and adapting the plan without having to be asked by putting protection measures in place even though there weren't any published at the time. The venue dealt with all issues that came up on the day such as the band not being able to play and very reduced guest numbers.

We had a fantastic day and enjoyed every aspect of it, the whole team at the venue made sure that the day was great and let us put our own personal touch on it through decorations, music, photo presentation and having a BBQ as the main meal. The function room really met all of our needs and There was a great view of Oysterhaven Bay and the grounds, letting in plenty of natural light. THE FOOD AND DRINK WAS DELICIOUS and the staff were very professional and friendly. All of the guests still tell us what a great day that they had.

We loved our experience at the Kinsale Hotel and Spa and would not have changed it for the world, would definitely recommend.

Alison who was always at the end of the phone or an email. We did not want a run of the mill wedding and she embraced all our ideas and let us have the wedding day we always dreamed of. She thought of every single little detail, it was perfect.

We held both the ceremony and reception at the hotel and the turnaround of the suite was so quick and both the ceremony and meal décor was beautiful with fresh flowers and beautiful centre pieces. Every single staff member was so friendly both before and after the wedding. They always made sure that all our guests were comfortable and accommodated.

The food was outstanding during the drink’s reception and for our meal. It was served quick, hot, and flawless to all our 160 guests. We have received nothing but compliments from all our guests on every aspect of the wedding from the views, the food and their entire stay.

We cannot thank Alison, Ronan and all the staff at the hotel enough for making our day so wonderful, relaxed, and memorable. We will forever be grateful for all they did to make our day so special.
