Very impressed with the service and set up of the hotel. Everything on the day went absolutely perfect. Alison (the coordinator) was an extremely pleasant and easy person to deal with and any last minute adjustments we required were completed with ease. We would highly recommend this venue to any

Absolutely amazing venue. We had our ceremony and reception there. Food and services were superb. Special thanks to Alison Walsh ( wedding Co-ordinator) and team. From begging to end she was always in touch. All of our guests were wowed about food, services and the location. We could not say in word

how friendly everyone was. Few of our guests were saying that if they had second chance to pick venue they would choose this one.

Thanks to all at Kinsale Hotel & Spa for making our day so very special. Planning a wedding from abroad can be tricky but Alison and the team were absolutely a safe pair of hands. The food was absolutely outstanding too. Thanks especially to Alison for all her help and guidance throughout all the

Our Wedding at the Kinsale Hotel & Spa was just wonderful.
We had both our ceremony and reception there.
From the first meeting with Lyn (F&B Manager), to the Wedding co-ordinator Alison we had a great experience with everyone who works there.
We had great support on the run up to the big day,

every detail was thought of.

When we met the Head Chef for our tasting every question was answered and requests taken care of. There is also great service staff in the Restaurant.
We cannot say enough about how helpful and friendly everyone was.

On the day everything went exactly as planned. the room looked beautiful, the food was even better then we remembered, the service was impeccable and the bride was perfectly late

The location of the Hotel is off the beaten Track, it's lovely and secluded and offers plenty of space for everyone involved. the views are breathtaking and the accommodation, while it could use a little updating, is clean and well kept.

Altogether we had a wonderful experience and can only recommend it.

The hotel is in a beautiful setting and is well set up for a wedding. However, Alison and her team are the real assets here. No worry was too small, no problem was too big and from the minute we decided on the hotel for our wedding, Alison made us feel like ours was the only wedding that was taking

place there, for the whole year. She was responsive to every email and on the day, the fact that everything ran smoothly was as much down to the fact that Alison and the team had thought of every eventuality and prepared for it without us even asking. We were organising the wedding from abroad and that made no difference to the level of service we got. The food on the day was great, the wine was lovely, the staff were amazing and all in all, I couldn't imagine such a big day going any better.

Alison our wedding co-ordinator was absolutely incredible, always going above and beyond to make the day extra special. Some venues rejected our idea of having a BBQ buffet, but Kinsale Macdonald welcomes us with open arms with the head chef cooking on display with bespoke Jameson infused burgers

which went down so well with our guests!!

We had incredible cocktails on arrival and all our guests mentioned how incredible the venue and day was. The ballroom is fantastic whatever the weather with full glass windows. Definitely recommend for those who love the sea, unreal views and private balcony at the bridal suite!!

beyond, not only on the day but also in the lead up.

The packages they offer are great value and there is flexibility there to tailor to your specific needs.

If you are considering venues in Cork we would highly advise you to pop down and have a chat with Alison and we're sure you'll be very impressed with the venue and packages on offer.

I could not recommended Alison and her team at Macdonald Hotel & Spa, Kinsale more. Organising our wedding from Australia was initially a very daunting idea but once we started working with Alison, we knew we were in great hands. Nothing was too big or too small of an ask, even with the massive time

difference!! We also availed of the day after BBQ and was such a perfect decision- amazing food, amazing views and everyone was so relaxed. The service we received right from the front desk was incredible, so much so- our guests could not stop talking about the hotel and the experience. We are beyond delighted with our experience- from the breathtaking views to the service, from the food to the amazing spa, we would have had it no other way. So for anyone searching for the perfect wedding venue, look no further!!! Thank you Alison and Co. again from the bottom of our hearts ♡

We had an absolutely fantastic experience at the Macdonald Hotel & Spa. From the very beginning, we felt welcome, well-advised, and nothing was a problem, which was very comforting since we had a large number of guests (220) to accommodate. Alison was a great help at every stage of the planning,

and was incredible on the day, as were all the staff. We were especially impressed when Donald appeared down in the playground, where we were taking photographs, with a bottle of champagne and some canapes, because he knew by then we'd be in need of some refreshment! It was little touches like that that really made the day special. Our guests were blown away by the views, but also by the hospitality and efficiency of all the staff, and the on-site lodges make for a great alternative to traditional hotel accommodation, especially for those with children. All in all, a five-star experience!

We got married here in April 2017 and everything was just amazing! The staff that helped us with the wedding were brilliant, Alison Walsh and Lynn (food and beverage manager) especially were so great in making everything easy for us! We wanted to do a few things differently like a dessert buffet in

the reception area after the meal which worked so well and got everybody mingling, the effort the hotel put into this was incredible which then blended smoothly into first dance outside on the terrace and everybody went from that to the dancing in the beautiful function room. Food was A1, accommodation beautiful, music for drinks reception (Grainne Ryan)was fab. The attention to detail made our day very memorable for our family & friends and the hotel made our day one of the best we could have imagined. We were so so happy, Thanks to all involved and we look forward to many a visit to bring back all the fond memories

Our wedding day in April 2017, at Macdonald Kinsale Hotel & Spa was fantastic. The venue was gorgeous. The food was great, we got great feedback from our guests about it. There was plenty of it which is what you want. We dealt with three wedding coordinators during the time we booked the venue to

the wedding day itself - Alice, Sarah & Alison... all three women were lovely to deal with.

Our package was great value. We had a humanist ceremony in the hotel & the function room was beautiful. All the staff that had dealings with myself and my husband were really nice and helpful and helped make our dream day brilliant!
Many thanks to all the staff at Macdonald Kinsale Hotel & Spa! Keep up the good work :)

Our wedding was everything that we wished for. Sarah, Michael & the team were fantastic. In the run up to the event they were always on hand to answer any questions we had. On the day the service was efficient and friendly.

Amazing hotel and function room. We had the run of the place for the weekend. Food was incredible and was commented on by all of our guests.

The surrounding grounds were perfect for taking photographs. Great value for money and staff couldn't have done more for us.
