Hi everyone! Myself and my new husband got married in the Radisson blu in little island on August 10th 2019. I honestly cannot say enough about how we were treated from start to finish. As most brides if not all will agree, organising a wedding is extremely stressful, we also had the stress of

buying a house the same year! Joanne our wedding planner put me at ease from start to finish. There was no question too silly nor there was nothing I asked that she said no to or they couldn't do it. Joanne was so precise in getting back to me straight away with any query I had or worry I had she made disappear. Dori was absolutely amazing to us in helping us sort out our ballroom,seating arrangements and the running of everything on our day. She took the stress out of our table plan and made it work for us the way we wanted. It was such a relief as we had a big number and felt overwhelmed when it came to our table plan but she was outstanding alongside Joanne with this and made our day be stressfree and flawless on the day. Presemek was our right hand man on the day- and by that I mean litterly our right hand man. From the time we arrived at the hotel to the time we got into bed he was my our sides making sure we were absolutely perfect. The service he provided not only to us but to all of our friends and family was second to none. He was outstanding in every way and made us feel like we were royalty! I honestly cannot say enough about these 3 people and the staff at the hotel. I would hands down recommend this hotel to any couple who are looking for a venue for their wedding. I have been to many weddings as a guest and i nor our friends and family have ever tasted food like theirs, the service from start to finish I have never seen anywhere else nor has our friends and family. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and please know we will never forget how special you all made our day for us.

We celebrated our Wedding Day in July and from the moment we booked our wedding with Joanne, Shane and the team at the Radisson Blu Hotel team we knew we were in the best hands.
The hotel is absolutely beautiful, tucked away down a tree lined lane but just a short drive from our Church and Cork

City. What sold the venue for us was Ditchley House and that there is just 1 wedding per day so all the focus is on you and your guests.
Ditchley House had a beautiful red carpet entrance where the staff waited for our arrival with Champagne. All our guests were able to enjoy the drinks reception on the amazing croquet lawn. We have beautiful pictures both outside and inside Ditchley, it is ideal if you want to make the most of your time on the day and have your pictures taken there to maximise time with your guests.
The Great Island ballroom is modern and out of this world, it really had the WOW factor when we entered the room to the applause of all our guests. Included were so many extras that finished off the decor such as cherry blossoms and the lighting.
The food is gorgeous, all our guests are still commenting on it to this day and the service was spot on.
We were blown away with all the staff from our initial point of contact, Joanne our Wedding Co-ordinator is such a professional and so approachable with all our queries, she put us at ease from our first meeting and right through to the day.
Dori, Niamh, Bart, Przemek and all the team were just amazing on the day itself and everything flowed so well.
I would recommend the Radisson Blu Cork to anyone thinking of getting married, friends of mine have actually booked it for their own big day after attending ours which I think just says it all.
Thank you everyone and we can't wait to return for our anniversary and relive it all over again.

Joanne, the wedding coordinator was an absolute pleasure to deal with. She is absolutely amazing!! Nothing was too much to ask. She always put us first and did her best to accommodate our wishes. We were delighted to have worked with her and cant praise her enough for everything she did for us leading up to the big day.

I would give the Radisson Blu and Joanne 10/10 and would advise anyone who is thinking of booking the Radisson for their wedding to do it. You wont be dissapointed

We got married in The Radisson Blu Hotel and Spa Little Island in August of this year and to say the hotel made it the best day of our lives is an under statement.

From the first day we booked our wedding, Joanne and her team were outstanding. Joanne herself was always on call for any questions

Read More

and queries we had over the 18 months. She bent over backwards to accommodate meetings with us both working shift.
Throughout the whole time she never once pushed us for information (even when we missed deadlines!), she had suggestions and ideas that were amazing and thought of so many little details that I would have completely missed! She is the most excited and cheerful person I have even met and made planning our wedding so easy and enjoyable.

If Joanne was on a much needed break, we dealt with Edel. Edel was also amazing at her job and is a credit to the Radisson team, her knowledge and calm & friendly demeanour meant she was a joy to work with.

On the day of our wedding, the whole team were fantastic. The day flowed so well and you could tell it was from careful planning. Everyone had a smile on their faces and no ask was too great. All my guests complimented on how amazing they all were. A huge special thanks to Seamus who looked after us at the top table, you could not meet a nicer man who is so dedicated to ensuring we had a great day.

The food at both the drinks reception and the meal was fabulous. The guests are still raving about it. The bridal suite is so lovely, we did not want to leave. All of who stayed said they had the best nights sleep!

I hope I have not missed anything out now but to all the staff at the Radisson, thank you from the bottoms of our hearts for giving us the best day of our lives xxx

Cannot recommend the Radisson Blu hotel enough. Joanne our wedding coordinator was absolutely amazing! Her advice and ideas were very much appreciated and taken on board. The decor, food and staff was out of this world. Seamus and Dori were with us on our wedding day and Joanne wasn't lying when she

told us we would be in good hands. They made us and our guests feel like royalty. I honestly cannot recommend them enough. Joanne was so quick to respond to my emails and kept contacting me in the run up to the wedding seeing if I had everything I needed sorted and if she could be of any help. She is such a lovely girl and because of her along with the staff they made our day perfect. Thank you Joanne, Seamus, Dori and to all the staff at the Radisson Blu hotel and spa, ye outdone yerselves.
on Wed, 4th of September, 2019
We would highly recommend The Radisson Blu Hotel. Everyone went beyond their call of duty to help us have the most amazing wedding reception. Joanne our wedding coordinator was one in a million, she made everything seem so easy. We couldn't fault anything on our day.

My husband and I chose to get married in the Radisson in May 2019. All I can say is that It was the best decision we made. Everything went perfectly from start to finish.

and made sure our minds were at ease planning a wedding from overseas. The rooms are lovely and spacious-extremely clean and moderne. All our guests Irish and Australian were delighted with the food and efficiency on the evening. I would love to give a shout out to Seamus who is an absolute credit to the hotel. He looked after the top table on the evening and he couldn’t of done anymore for us-everyone was raving about him lol! So thank you Seamus???? If I could do it all again I wouldn’t change a thing! We had a family bbq the next day and again staff and food were AMAZING!!My husband and his groomsmen tried the pool and said it was one of the best they have ever been in with all the relaxing jet options(thats good coming from an Aussie)????. The Raddison is just phenomenal, be it for a wedding, a birthday celebration or just a weekend getaway I would recommend 10 times over!! Thank you for helping us have the most magical wedding❤️
on Mon, 10th of June, 2019
We got married in March of this year and after looking at many different venues all around Ireland the Radisson was the one that stood miles ahead of the rest.
In the lead up to the wedding our wedding co-coordinator Joanne was incredible and was probably the person that was essential in all our

planning and the one I contacted (pestered) the most. No request or question was too big or too small for her. Joanne accounted for and suggested details I never would have thought to plan out which ensured our wedding day was as magical as I dreamed of and completely stress free.
On the day, Joanne, Seamus and Doreen ensured everything ran absolutely perfectly. The room, waiting staff, chefs and the bar staff simply could not be faulted. Every single minute detail was taken care of and all the finishing touches looked phenomenal.
I could not recommend this place highly enough! Thank you for making our day so special!!!!
on Mon, 10th of June, 2019

We had our wedding in the Radisson hotel little island Oct 2016.

I can most certainly highly recommend The Radisson Blu, for a wedding, be it big or small!!

We had the best day ever and all our needs were met. From the moment we arrived at the Radisson day one, we knew this was where we wanted to spend our special day surrounded by friends and family, it was

clean and very welcoming.

Each step of the way, the wedding coordinator and staff were there to make every aspect of our wedding perfect for us.

We happened to have a beautiful sunny day and our guests enjoyed a few drinks out outside while the Jazz band played and we got plenty of pictures on the front steps.

The food was of the highest standard and there were clean plates everywhere. Food didn't stop there, we then had a fabulous spread of food after some dancing and shapes on the dance floor. The kids and the (big kids) were delighted with the candy cart.

If you're considering a wedding at the Radisson, I urge you, go meet the team. You'll fall in love with the place!!

Food was also divine which is a major deal so that was great. 100% I will always recommend this hotel.
Thanks for everything

"Joanne" was a constant in my emails reassuring us that all was in hand and answering all our questions again.

When we had our BBQ the night before as a get together for family and friends that had travelled from abroad we knew we were in good hands. The day itself was more than we could have wished for, everything happened seamlessly and all of the staff no matter who, when asked a question were superb. The service and food were fantastic and the guests are still talking about it.

We cannot thank everyone enough for making our special day so memorable and unique to us.

on Fri, 28th of September, 2018
I have nothing but excellent things to say about having our wedding in the Radisson blue hotel little island. We were at two weddings previous to our own there and we really enjoyed both so when we decided to start looking at hotels we knew the Radisson was at the top of our list. They were very

prompt in all responses to our requests. If there was something we wanted to change or add even last minute it was no trouble at all. Joanne and Ciara who we were dealing with were so easy going in the lead up to the day, that it made our planning so much easier. They made great suggestions when we were not sure about certain things. Shane and Pierre on the day were brilliant. From the moment we stepped out of the car they had us laughing, great banter and kept us smiling. Some guests had requested something from the staff at the hotel on the day, they said it was done with no complaints at all. The food was delicious, everyone seemed to be well fed and everyone's desserts were lovely and warm. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
on Thu, 6th of September, 2018
The Radisson staff were an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. From planning to the actual day they were so professional, friendly and on the ball from day 1. My bridal party and guests have all complimented the staff in the Radisson, they were so helpful on the day and couldn’t

have done any more for us and our guests. They are an absolute credit to the Radisson. Also the set up on the day, the layout was stunning, once again thanks to all the staff. Compliments also to the chef as my guest's feedback was that the food was amazing. (Radisson is known for amazing food) The day couldn’t have run any more smoothly due to the staff being on the ball. I would highly recommend the Radisson for a wedding. I cannot fault them in any way, they are just top notch. Special thanks to Rosita and Sheamus who were a pleasure to deal with.
on Wed, 5th of September, 2018
We found the Radisson staff helpful at all times, flexible in responding to an extra person showing up on the day to being willing to change the wedding from a planned indoor civil wedding ceremony to an outdoor civil wedding ceremony when the weather proved suitable.
The venue is spectacular,

Read More

especially if you're lucky enough to get the weather to set up outdoors- the outdoor setup in the garden facing the old house really was a step up and worth the extra fee.The reception being out there worked out great as well, with people able to retire indoors or to the shelter of the parasols if the sun was too much.
The food was spectacular. I cannot recommend this enough - everyone we've spoken to feels like the food was among the best or just the best food they've had at any wedding they've been to. They were also willing to listen to our requests about minor changes to the food (very minor changes, as we felt like the chef did know best). They also had a list of dietary requirements that they were able to meet and no-one was left unhappy. The potato dauphinoise was, without a doubt, the most popular side at the wedding. I could have a meal of just that. The staff were a pleasure to deal with as well. In particular Joanne, the wedding coordinator who helped make sure we kept on track with getting things ready (and was okay with us getting some things a bit last minute...) and Séamus who took care of us for the night, and the wait staff who made sure everyone got their meal in good time and kept the wine glasses flowing.
The BBQ the next day was perfect as well - and they were flexible about what time we could have it at. Having enough rooms for everyone who wanted to stay was also a huge plus, as it meant anyone who desired a room was able to get one, which is a really nice extra at a wedding.

Really couldn't recommend it more for someone planning their wedding.

What an amazing day we had, staff could not have done any more for us. Food was beautiful a lot of the guests had said to us. Anything we asked we received and more. Joanne was wonderful to deal with nothing was an issue.

We had an amazing wedding at the Radisson Blu hotel. We were lucky to have an outdoor wedding due to the sunny weather. The wedding decor, all done by the hotel is beautiful and included in the package. The hotel staff and wedding coordinator Joanne O Donoghue are very organised, reliable and

Hi Ciara,

I suppose I'll start off by saying thank you for giving us an amazing day we couldn't have done it without you.

From start to finish on the day it was absolutely amazing, where you had the ceremony positioned outside with the drinks reception all outside next to it was perfect way

better than I ever pictured it to be.

The meal on the day was unbelievable the chefs did an amazing job with it all from our menu to the vegan and vegetarian options just perfect.

The feedback I'm after getting back from guest is great they couldn't believe where we were, as one guest put it ' it was like something from a film' I can't thank you enough for all the hard work from start to finish from you and your team behind it all.

Could you say a special thank you to Shane and Isabel on the day they did an excellent job of looking after us on the day, they really went above and beyond for us, they made us feel really relaxed about everything.

Thank you again,

Picking a venue for your wedding is a big decision and for us our first thoughts were to pick a hotel nearer to home until we fell in love with the Radisson on our first visit. I loved the old style of Ditchley house with the open gardens while Darren loved the modern style of the Ball room. So

Read More

both of us were sold!! We are so glad we picked the Radisson as our experience on our wedding day was amazing. There is not one thing I could fault. Everywhere looked amazing, all them little touches you add make the place look magical. Every staff member was so friendly and very accommodating not only to us and the bridal party but to every single guest. Every one mentioned how friendly the staff were and we received nothing but compliments about the fantastic service they received from when they were checking in, to the service they got at dinner time right down to when they were checking out. The food was gorgeous and plenty of it as well, we have nothing but all good compliments from ourselves and our guests. We would highly recommend the Radisson to all future couples out there looking for a venue that gives five-star treatment to all with fantastic food and service. Thank you to all the staff at the Radisson for making our day so amazing and Thank you especially to Ciara, Isabella, Pierre and Daniel to name a few.

We had our wedding reception in The Radisson Blu Little Island on the bank holiday Monday 2016. From the moment I walked up to the reception desk to inquire about their wedding packages (I was with my 3 year old in between school runs on a weekday in Feb 2016)...I was introduced to Ciara Barry and

Read More

straight away I knew we were going to book our wedding here. We had six months to organise ourselves and I can honestly say I did not get stressed at all. Ciara basically said all I needed to do was to turn up on the day !!!! We chose our food after a food tasting that felt like a VIP experience with Dori . We chose lamb and fish and we were blown away with the quality of our dishes. We both enjoy our food. We chose to buy our own wine and this was no problem.
We booked into the hotel the night before the wedding with our 3 kids. I had a massage and felt so relaxed. The kids felt like they were on their holidays watching movies and ordering room service. The morning of the wedding the kids went swimming with their dad (the groom) !! as the girls went to Youghal to get ready. The weather was awful on the day but it made no difference at all as the staff at the Radisson were out with their umbrellas to welcome and help every guest to the pre reception. We had cocktails and scones with a jazz band that were amazing!!!! Then the evening reception began. We has two oval top tables which worked so well. The room looked beautiful. We did not have a wedding cake instead we had a sweet cart! Our waiter was Brian who was fabulous. The staff introduced themselves to each individual table they were serving which made it so personal. The kids were runing around and the staff were so nice to them. The wine was flowing and the food was the best I have ever had at any wedding. The experience could not have been better. We felt it was 5 star quality. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. Thank you so much. Linda, Glen and the kids.

Myself and husband got engaged at Christmas time and we started researching the best places for our wedding reception. We booked loads of places and lastly we met the radisson blu team. By this time I was feeling so overwhelmed and the minute we set down with Emma the wedding Co ordinator in the

Read More

radisson blu hotel I knew this was the place. I as so nervous and Emma just took it all away. We had our church booked but the minute Emma showed me the civil ceremony room, My husband said we'll there goes the church. He was right it was breath taking, just like a fairy tale. It was so romantic with all the candles, lighting and the personal feel to it. We booked our reception with the radisson blu the following day. Than a couple of months later ciara took over as our wedding Co ordinator. At first I was so nervous as I was one of the most nervous brides I think you would of ever met. Ciara arrange a meeting and after sitting down with ciara for two minutes we just loved her. Ciara was on top of everything. Our wedding menu tasting was amazing and the radisson even made us feel special at this. My father and brother in law are both chefs so I was a bit nervous about them being critical about the food but they thought it was amazing. I would email and get a reply straight away. Ciara would be letting me know what I had to do or get. She was amazing. Than the day came and ciara and the team were waiting for me when I arrived. Helping me out if the car, fixing my veil and dress. I can't remember much of the day as its a blur but I remember how much the radisson made me feel so special and my little girl who is four was treated like a princess.

I can not say enough about The Radisson and its staff! We booked our wedding only 4 months in advance and every single person we dealt with, up until checkout the day after our dream day, were nothing short of amazing. We started our booking with Emma who was wedding coordinator, who unfortunately

left midway through our prep, but we were left in the capable hands of Ciara who met us as often as needed and went through everything with us to ensure everything was right. We had our wedding directly after xmas and the hotel were so flexible regards dropping off wine/favours etc so that we could go and enjoy our xmas day with no work left to do! The room looked amazing and the food....I cannot compliment the chef enough! The beef was out of this world..and don't even mention the choc puddings....(I think we booked our whole wedding based on those!) We had last minute changes to seating plan on two occasions and the staff were so helpful. We would like to thank Ciara, Iwona, Edyta, Pierre and all serving staff (the waiters were laughing and joking with guests throughout dinner service and it made everything feel so relaxed and friendly). We had an amazing day.

ran so smoothly and kept checking we were happy with everything and had a drink in our hands! The new ballroom looked amazing and I just loved all the new extras.

I honestly couldn't have asked for better! I'm already looking forward to our first anniversary night at your hotel.

I have attached a photo of us in your new cocoon outside the bridal suite. It was fab!

kind and patient people. They really could not do enough for us.

Everyone commented on the quality and quantity of the food. Most people said they’ve been to a few other weddings in local Cork Hotels and have come away hungry from the meal. Not so at the Radisson. It was amazing. They ‘prosecco’ reception was also another big hit! People were absolutely thrilled with that. And the function room is fabulous. I would recommend ye to anyone who asked with glowing comments.

I really can’t thank you enough for all that you did. You made the organizing (of the hotel part of the wedding at least) so easy on us. You are a pleasure to deal with and I hope the hotel knows what a treasure you are to them.

Thanks again for everything Amy.

Kind regards

It was also great that there was no rush with our check out on the Sunday which made our day soo relaxing and we could just take it all in.

When we were getting married we wanted a central location that had a bit of character, a large function room so people wouldn't be squashed, enough space to not have to move people's tables after dinner, a stage setup so that our band could get going straight away, excellent food, plenty of

bedrooms, friendly, helpful and easy to deal with people and, of course, we wanted it at a good price. Needless to say we thought such a place didn't exist. So we were very surprised when we went to talk to the team in the Radisson Cork to find that they actually delivered all of this plus a few extras. I can't express enough what a pleasure it was to deal with this hotel. From our negotiations on costs and setups to menu tastings, everyone was helpful and accommodating.

We were very particular about the food and asked for a second tasting. The chef listened to our feedback and made effort to ensure we were happy. Our seconf experience was spot on and on the day itself everyone raved about the food.

Prior to the day our coordinator went through all our details and made us feel very confident that all would go well on the day.

The day/night before myself and some friends went to decorate. Again the staff were so helpful and really accommodated us with our cake/wine/decoration deliveries. Everything was on hand and nothing was too much trouble.

On the day itself the staff were super. We felt that we were well taken care of but that also our guests were looked after. Service on the day was great, food was hot and swift. This was particularly challenging given the large crowd. So got so many compliments on the drinks reception, the location, the staff, the food. All in all the entire team from housekeeping to wedding planners were superb. I would highly recommend this hotel as a choice for a large or small wedding. They are exceptional.

about the planning. The wedding coordinators at the hotel made everything so easy. They were so professional and down to earth you could ask them anything. The day of the wedding was magical. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. The meal was outstanding and the service was unbelievable. The main reason the Radisson was such an amazing venue for us is that they treated every one of our 185 guests with such wonderful service. All the guests that we met since the wedding commented on how delightful the staff were and what a great hotel it was for a wedding. I would highly recommend the Radisson Blu Hotel and Spa Little Island.

wedding planner Rosita was the best! she made us feel at ease everytime we met her and everything was looked after even things you didnt even know were happening. the staff on the day were so friendly and nice and the waiting staff were A1. my terror of a niece (5) decided she wanted toast and jam and the chef made it for her, then she decided she wanted pasta and that too was bought out for her. the staff were polite and even when their shifts ended at 1am they came to find myself and hubby and wished us well and said goodnight.

I have been recommending the Radisson Blu to everyone since and will continue to do so.

of every detail while also coming up with some ideas herself to help us along, on the big day we were fortunate to have sunshine and the guests had pre dinner drinks under the canapy on the lawn which everyone loved (nobody wanted to go back in), the meal itself was fantastic and the large dance floor gave people plenty of room, the staff were fantastic especially Pierre and made sure everyone was looked after and wine glasses always topped up, book the Radisson and you wont be dissaopinted, big thanks again to all the staff

We recently got married on the 3rd of October in the hotel. From day one when we first sat down just to enquire about the hotel we were offered great help and advice in a professional yet friendly manor as to how to approach or day which made it all the easier for us.

Leading up to the big day

Read More

the wedding co-ordinator Edita was in contact regularly making sure that we had everything in place, co-ordinating the guest room lists, organising our taster evening and running through the itinerary for the day to make sure all was in order.

On the big day despite the weather being bad the hotel was setup and looking great on our arrival. The old Ditchley house is a great setting for photograph and for arrival. The guests arrived at the hotel through Ditchley house and were greeted by a champagne reception, jazz band and the main reception area decked out for our special day.

The wedding party were greeted at the door by Pierre and Edyta, who throughout the day and into the evening really helped in making for us our occasion a brilliant day. They were both on hand for the entire day to ensure that everything went as planned. Pierre in particular had a great personality and created a great atmosphere at the top table with his professional yet good humoured approach.

The food in particular was delicious from starter to desert, nearly everyone we met afterwards was talking about the quality of the meal, and of course the hotel ensured the wine flowed freely as we requested.

Into the evening and the day continued as well as it had gone up until then. Even with a big crowd there was always enough bar persons present and there was never a long wait at the bar.

In summary I couldn't fault the hotel both in the build up to the big day and on the day. The setting is great and the service matched the setting, the staff in there efforts made the day easy for us at a time when you have so much other planning to do.

on Mon, 13th of October, 2014
Deciding which hotel to use for your wedding is a tough decision, we viewed 8 hotels before deciding on the radision blu.
We wanted a hotel that we could trust to deliver on the day, and a hotel that we could with which we could negotiate all the elements of wedding day in an open and honest

Read More

The radisson really delivered and we decide to have both our wedding ceremony and our wedding reception there too.

The wedding organiser Amy is sincere, warm and professional. Her follow up work was excellent, anytime we asked a question and she didn't have an immediate answer she followed up with an email within hours.
She guided us through the planning process and invited us to view wedding and civil ceremonies early in the day when everything was setup.

The tasting the food exceed our expectations and we were waited on by the legendary Pierre (aka the loveable French man). He provided us with advice during the tasting and he was also present on our wedding day.

On the run up to the wedding Amy had comprehensive checklists and answered all those last minute questions.

On the morning of the wedding I walked around the 3 rooms for the ceremony, drinks reception and the wedding reception. Everything was as we requested.

Our day went like clockwork and we spend our day having fun and socialising with our guests.

The format of the day was civil wedding ceremony in pre-reception area, drinks reception in ditchley house(including jazz trio provided by hotel), wedding reception and afters in the main room(including candy cart provided by hotel). A late bar was provided in the pre-reception drinks area.

The following day we had a BBQ for lunch for all our guests, again everything was of a high standard.

Based on the our experienced we would highly recommend the radisson blu for your wedding day.

We got married on Sat. May 3rd 2014, in the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa, Little Island, Cork.
We couldn't fault our day in any way!! The staff were very professional, helpful & attentive to all of us on the day. The room was just beautiful where we had our ceremony, the arch lit up with lights, the

chairs all covered & lanterns lit the side of the "aisle", which is a strip of lights that colour matched my bridesmaids dresses!!
The drinks reception that followed in Ditchley House with the jazz band was a perfect setting. The guests mingled, & we got family pictures taken there.
The dining room was just spectacular!! The way it was decorated, with fairy lights, & the tables were set up lovely, with candle bra & glass, so effective. The meal was the highlight for us as we wanted our guests to know we put thought & effort into choosing the menu!! From the starters to dessert, we could not complain, the meal was absolutely mouth watering & all of our guests complemented on same!! We had a lovely waiter, Pierre, assigned to look after us on the day, what a gent, so nice & very attentive to us all on the top table.
Thanks for a truly memorable day, we enjoyed every minute, & only wished the day didn't fly by!!

We got married June 2014 at Radisson hotel little island, Cork. We had a pretty big wedding- 240 guests. It was the most relaxed day and that was down to the hotel and wonderful staff. We had no worries about our guests as we new everyone was being looked after. The meal was amazing and our guests

are still talking about the food and service. My aunt had some food allergies which I was unaware of prior to the day and the staff catered for her excellently. Pierre, the waiter for the top table is in a league of his own.... We could all do with a Pierre in our lives to cater for our every needs!!!! We would highly recommend this hotel as a wedding venue and would give it 6 stars if I could!

Where do I start with a review of the Radisson Blu for our wedding? We got married on December 20th 2013 and quite simply the hotel could not have done more for us. The planning and prep work was thorough and stress free and when it came to the day the hotel surpassed all expectations.

The staff

Read More

dealing with the reception were great. Beers were flowing and the staff ensured that guests' glasses were topped up with purse co at all times. The meal was amazing. Each course was served to perfection. The food was cooked to order (steaks to each guest's preference), came out in a timely manner and everyone was raving about the meal afterwards. Pierre the maître D was fantastic. He not only took exceptional care of the top table but also ensure that each table had enough wine. Some guests asked for food that wasn't on the menu and the hotel came up trumps and served what was asked for - very impressive given the kitchen was busy getting 200 meals out.

Other than that we need to get something from a pharmacy during the day for my father and the front desk staff stepped up to the plate. They rang around pharmacies and then arranged a taxi to pick up what we needed and all done with maximum amount of discretion so that I wasn't even aware of this until the next day.

Those were the highlights but the accommodation and decor was fab (particularly due to Christmas season). But above all the hotel staff were just second to none. Each member we came across was better than the previous one and just couldn't do enough for us and out guests.

I can't recommend the Radisson Blu littleisland highly enough. Book your wedding here and you will be guaranteed a day you won't forget.
on Fri, 4th of April, 2014
Such an amazing hotel. Fantastic service from start to finish! I could not recommend Emma and her team highly enough! We had the most fantastic day of our lives and so much of that was down to the hotel. They were open to every suggestion we had and were 100% flexible.

And of course unbelievable

We had our wedding in May 2013. The staff and service at Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa Cork were great, always with a smile. They truly make you feel welcome.

fabulous. I needn't have worried at all. All the staff were lovely to deal with. Pierre was absolutely wonderful the day of the wedding he made sure everyone had enough food and he entertained the kids aswell dressing up with silly props from the video booth we got. The food was amazing. I would def recommend this hotel for a wedding. There was actually three weddings booked so far from guests attending ours.
There was one thing I was kind of disappointed with, which was the honeymoon suite it didnt seem very special or romantic but there was a private hot tub on the balcony which made up for it.
Cant wait to return again.
on Fri, 15th of November, 2013
To put it simply, The Radisson made our day. Amy and the staff were fantastic from start to finish. Since we returned from HoneyMoon all we have been hearing is how friendly the staff were and how good the food was. The drinks reception was excellent with good food and drink and it really set people

in the mood for the main event. The room was magnificent and we didnt have a care in the world on the day, EVERYTHING was taken care of. Pierre who looked after the Bride and Groom and top table was also a real gem. We are over the moon we chose the Radisson in Little Island and would advise anyone tying the knot to book it.
We could not recommend the hotel or its wonderful staff enough. First Class

so. The hotel was absolutely beautiful and had a warm friendly ambiance that made everything so magical. Many of our guests expressed their delight of not only our excellent choice of hotel but also with the absolutely delicious food that was served. It was at a very high standard indeed.

We would sincerely like to thank all the staff for their kindness and hard work in making our day so special. Every request and whim was attended to immediately and without any fuss.

My husband and myself would highly recommend this hotel as a Wedding venue of choice for any couple who are looking for that 'something special' for their wedding day. We promise wont go wrong.

We celebrated our wedding in the Radisson Hotel, Little Island on the 30th May 2013.
When we first visited the Radisson, we immediately felt a sense of care and professionalism from the establishment and it was this along with the layout and asthetics of the hotel helped us decide that the Radisson

was perfect for us. The picturesque Ditchley House and gardens combined with all the modern conveniences of a 5 star hotel, provided a perfect backdrop for out special day.

From the moment that we arrived at reception to the moment we departed the Radissons staff filled us with peace of mind and assurance that our time spent there would be as enjoyable as anyones special day should be.

We had the perfect day in the radisson on our wedding day, from the minute we arrived on the red carpet to the time we checked out Sunday. Our wedding co-ordinator and her team were excellent, nothing was too much trouble for them. The staff were friendly, efficient and very helpful. We had a lot of

individual dietary requirements which were catered for brilliantly. So much so the meat eaters were slightly jealous!! Our guests really appreciated this as a lot of time, they're after thoughts when it comes to food.. The room was set up really well and it was easy for people to mingle between courses. Food service was efficient and there were no huge gaps between courses. The food was amazing and no one went hungry. Even
though we went for a basic afters food, there was plenty of it and it was left out for the remainder of the night. Which was great. Our bridal suite was huge and we loved it. We wish could have stayed longer. We really enjoyed the hot tub!!! Was great for very sore feet after dancing all night in heels. We would highly recommend the radisson to anyone, it was perfect for us and great value for money.

on the day!! Top notch!! On the months coming up to our wedding I was dealing with a lovely girl who took a career change & left the Radisson ..she passed on every detail to the girl that took over (Cliona) without a single fuss. If ever I emailed or phoned Cliona I would get an immediate response & nothing was too much trouble! Bart was the manager who was overseeing everything on our wedding day & I reckon if I asked him to stand on his head for the day he would have done it for me! Such a gent! The room was big & airy with fab lighting & as there are no tables placed on the dance floor (because the room is big enough to cater for large crowds) it meant the guests could relax after the meal without being asked to leave the room! Having the residents bar in the room is brill to keep the crowed together for longer!! The bedrooms are all new & nicely decorated...& the breakfast the next morning is as good as the dinner we got! I could keep rambling on but I think you get the picture! We were so pleased & I would absolutely recommend this hotel to any couple! Happy wedding planning!
on Mon, 23rd of September, 2013
From the moment we had our pre-wedding consultation with Colette in the Radisson Blu hotel, we knew it was where we wanted to celebrate the most important day of our lives! Everything was perfect - from the beautiful tree - lined drive up to the hotel, to the old world charm of Ditchley House where

Read More

we would host our drinks reception. The planning process was so easy with the team at the Radisson - nothing was too much trouble and they brought a wealth of experience, knowledge and good advice to what could have been a very daunting experience for us both!
Complimentary menu tasting, complimentary gym membership ( he used!) and spa vouchers ( I used!) all added to excitement leading up the day and were events in their own right in such beautiful surroundings.
The lead up to the wedding was a pleasure with the Radisson team confirming numbers and making last minute changes, at our request, without any hesitation. The day itself was absolutely faultless and a dream come true. From Pierre meeting us at the bottom of the red carpet with champagne to the beautiful photos we got on the huge winding staircase in the charming Ditchley house, it was amazing. The drinks reception on the lawn was fantastic with the pop-up bar doing a roaring trade! The background music during the meal was great with guests commenting on the lovely atmosphere in the room. The meal and menu choice were 5*, with the execution on the night by the team superb- food was served in a timely manner and without fault. All the 'extras' - bathroom baskets, guest book, mid meal entertainment, favours etc- were all dealt with with such professionalism and without issue. Nothing was too much trouble for the team and we felt very well looked after and special. ( The outdoor hot tub in the honeymoon suite along with the champagne breakfast helped the next day too!)
The Radisson Blu in Little Island really was a fantastic venue- it has everything! The contradiction of old and new in the hotel works as a great backdrop and so there is something for everyone! Ditchley house with the amazing interiors, high ceilings and ornate decor contrasts with the huge ball room with modern retro LED 'catwalk' in the Residents bar- great photos taken here!
We would highly recommend the Radisson Blu Little Island for anyone looking for a great venue, great food, fantastic value for money and above all else, a great team who take all the stress out of the planning of your wedding day and see to every little detail - and will fill in anything you at have forgotten with their checklists! We had the best day of our lives celebrating in the Radisson, so much so it's the second family wedding we have had there. 3 words: Ah.Maz.Ing.

This hotel was second to one since the day we booked the Venue, the special day itself and the aftermath.

I got married on 9th of August 2013 which I know everyone says is the best day of its life, but the best part of my day except of course for marrying my husband was the service and the

attention to detail that Cliona (wedding cordinator) and the staff at the Raddison provided.

Let me start by saying that we really got value for menu, every detail on the day was perfect, and beforehand when I turned into bridezilla the amount of times that Cliona met me to go through and ensure that every detail was perfect. I felt that I had my own personal wedding planner.

The day its self, the room decor, the food(which all my guest loved) the service was 100%. This hotel really knows how to cater for the perfect Wedding.

I just want to say thank you for making my day which I believe by having my reception at the Raddison
did. Looking back today at my wedding photos, the best one's were the photos at the venue, why because I can see how relaxed and happy myself and Colm are, and I believe that was down to the expertise at this fantastic hotel.

worried about.
The day its self ran like clockwork and everything was that we expected was delivered without question. The room layout was perfect and even with a fairly large crowd 240 sat down there was plenty of room for everyone. The food itself was fantastic and plenty to go around.
All in all I couldn't recommend the Radisson highly enough.

Our grandparents were delighted with the tea and biscuits upon arrival.

We would do kit all again tomorrow.

venue, the food was so amazing, I have never heard so many people compliment the food. My husband is from west cork, and a lot of the guests are used to places to down here, and were thinking that they wouldn't get beef as nice!!! But we could not get over the compliments from everyone regarding the venue and food. Our suite was fabulous and our parents and family members enjoyed the other suites. Everytime i phoned our emailed with queries before the wedding, it was met with a speedy and helpful response. On the day the service was excellent, want to thank Pierre our waiter on the top table he could not have done more for us if he tried. I would highly recommend the hotel to everyone looking for a wedding venue.

this transition was seemless. Cliona was very professional but approachable and friendly at the same time. this was very important to us. She gave us some really great tips that we would have never thought of ourselves. These really added to our day. When looking at the packages the hotel had on offer, we saw they were competitive. We wanted to tailor one of the packages to suit our needs and this was done with no questions asked.

We had several meetings in the hotel and it was clear to us that the staff were taking as much pride our special day as we were. Their attention to detail was impeccable. From the menu tasting to the day after the wedding, everything we wanted was provided for in abundance.

Now to the day itself. The venue was spotlessly clean, the candles were lit , the lawns were cut , the carpets were clean and the floors were polished. The hotel provided an open air reception area for guests with a wonderful jazz band and a mobile bar. Guests are still commenting on such a beautiful area and the atmosphere it created.

From there we along with the quests were invited into the main reception room. This was decorated to our spec. We were delighted with how glamorous it looked on the day. We felt food was very important and that the guests received a fantastic meal. This was definitely achieved. Compliments to the chef and to the waiting staff on the day. Special mention to Bart and Jose who attended to the top table so well.

The hotel is a fantastic wedding venue , but where it excels is it's staff . There were so many of our guests commented on how friendly the staff were it really helped to put an extra special touch on the day for us.

whole perfect package recently when we had the absolute pleasure of having our wedding reception in Ditchley House, in the Raddison in Little Island, Cork.

In all honesty all of our expectations were met and exceeded.  From the moment we enquired let alone booked we were given the Raddison event co-ordination teams undivided attention, Cliona, Amy and Emma were there at our beck and call. Always on hand to answer whatever new query of the day I had. We had concerns when we were choosing our venue as we were having a small intimate family wedding with 40 guests, Cliona addressed these concerns instantly and had some wonderful ideas and was able to advise us if we were unsure on anything.
Both on the day and prior to the event Cliona and the rest of the events team were so facilitating and helpful. The Chef was so open for any suggestions and willing to personalise the menu to cater for our vegan guests and did they deliver on the day!! I have never been to a wedding where so many, if not all of the guests were raving about the exceptional food and service.
Our champagne and cocktails on arrival and canapes to the spectacular evening food served by the best waiting staff i have ever come across it would be unfair to even limit their qualities to that both Pierre and Hose were so attentive and provided hours of entertainment. Pierre added a real sparkle with his personal touches and Hose was amazing thoughout the day, regularly seen entertaining the younger guests we had. They charmed all of our guests ourselves included. The Raddisons manager was also present though the day ensuring we were happy and our guests were happy. The whole raddison teams presence felt natural they

The room looked so romantic with all the candle's and fairy light back drop. The food, which I still get feed back from was devine. All in all we couldn't of asking for more from a Hotel, it was just PERFECT. A big thank you to all the staff who made out day MAGICAL. We look forward to returning in September to celebrate out 1st Anniversary.

We couldn't have imagined somewhere better then the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa Little Island to host our celebration. We were very proud to have chosen somewhere our guests felt was so special yet relaxed.

We knew the Radisson was for us from the first day. We were warmly welcomed by Caroline who

took the time to show us the hotel and answer our questions. The presentation of our options was clear and uncomplicated. This was refreshing considering how complicated organising a wedding can be! As all couples do, we wanted to make sure we were getting the best deal we could. Financial strain and a numbers game are part of every wedding. We won some and we lost some but overall we were extremely satisfied with what we had agreed.

A major factor in helping us decide to choose the Radisson was the function room. It was set up for a wedding later that day. We were wowed and excited to see how elegant the decor was and more importantly impressed to learn that this decor came included as standard.

As time went on decisions needed to be made. Communication between us, Caroline and other staff members was smooth and efficient.

We booked our menu tasting and last minute decided we would also stay the night. We were given a beautiful room and the personalised menu's were a lovely touch.

During the final few days suppliers we had independently booked reassured us they had great success dealing with the hotel in the past. We therefore did not need to liaise between them.

The day itself went off without a hitch. The drinks reception in Ditchley House, the music and use of the garden really set the tone. The meal was absolutely beautiful and the staff were a credit to the hotel.

I couldn't submit this without giving a special mention to Pierre, the French gent who looked after us so well. We still speak fondly of him and every couple should be so lucky to be looked after by him on their special day.

An amazing day... An amazing place.

with great ideas to help with the finishing touches to our special day.

I really can't say enough for all the staff and everything all I can say to look else where for your wedding you'd be mad the rooms are so beautiful and garden is picture perfect for all your photos if I could do it all again I would not change a thing maybe the rain but as for my venue not a chance in hell 5 star rating for me higher if I could xxxx

We held our wedding reception in the Radisson on 27th July last year (can't believe its been almost a yr ago already!!). When viewing hotels at the early stages of planning, we attended a Wedding Fayre in the Radisson and we booked our date there and then. we were impressed straight off with the

personal service n guide of the hotel we received. Sinead was our co-ordinater - friendly,professional and nothing was ever a trouble or a bother! On the day itself, the sun shone so our guests took advantage of the lawn area to the side of the room where the drinks reception was held, while still being able to enjoy the jazz band that played indoors. We could not fault the meal or the staff serving our guests. The reception room is set up in such a way that there are no tables on the dancefloor so once the meal was over our band started straight away.
The honeymoon suite was large and airy with a decked balcony and hottube. Beautiful breakfast including champers was delivered to our door without us having to ask. only downside to it was we didn't get to spend enough time in there to enjoy it fully!!
I would highly recommend the Radisson as a venue for your wedding reception. if you received half of the amount of care and attention we did then you still wouldn't be able to fault them!!

amount of guests and planned more than we expected. And the meal...our friends are still talking about it :-) Even before we've heard a lots of nice words about the hotel menu. On the wedding day , from the first step we had a very elegant waiter Piere- with his soft french accent which reminded me of romantic french movies. Even a little attention was paid to all the ladies which was so fantastic! In the ladies room there was a FREE make-up beautician, for make ups/touch ups!!! All the ladies were impressed about it ;-) From the first day we saw the hotel restaurant and till now, we are so happy that we choose this hotel! We would like to thank the Hotel management for their high professionalism and for the great day they give us and for our family!
And we look forward to going to the next wedding there as guests.....

We chose the Radisson in Little Island because not only was it close to home, more importantly it's food was phenomenal. The food was such an important aspect for us and the hotel delivered beyond what we had expected. Three years on guests are still talking about the food.
But food alone can

not make a day and The Radisson made sure that every other aspect met the high standard they had set on the menu. The champagne reception was held in the house part of the hotel and the guests were greeted with a glass and a smile. The jazz band entertained the guests while the photographer made me feel like Maureen O Hara on the sweeping staircase.
Service throughout the day was impeccable. I never once had to ask for anything, it was almost as if the staff were two steps ahead of us all day. They were so attentive to disabled guests that we had without highlighting their special needs. Their subtlety was fabulous and made everyone feel comfortable and relaxed.
In the lead up to the day, Colette and Sinead were fantastic. Helpful with all kinds of advice and tips and they always made me feel as if I was the most important person in the hotel at any moment. I was never made feel like a bridezilla or that any of my questions were ridiculus - even though I know some of them were.
The bridal suite is also fabulous and the hottub on the balcony was a lovely treat on the sunny morning after.
In summary The Radisson was the perfect place for our wedding and we had the most relaxed, pleasureable and amazing day ever and alot of that was down to them.

enthusiastic in their attitudes to their roles and were willing to help whether helping organise flower arrangements in different positions or helping carry my dress. Our guests are still talking about the standard of the food from canapes to the main wedding meal. Ever item was full of flavour and I heard no negative comments.
Throughout the day, there were so many moments when I was thankful that we had chosen The Radisson Blu Hotel for our wedding reception. A special word of thanks to all staff but especially to Caroline & Pierre who went above and beyond the call of duty.
Thanks to the Radisson for making us feel so special and for being so professional in all areas.

was ideal for pictures.

The staff were very helpful in the lead up to the day and on the day they done everything they could to make sure the day was perfect. All our guests at the wedding have commented on how pleasant and helpful the staff were.

The food could not have been presented better and again all our guests have commented on how good it was. The food on the day was consistently very good and the staff ensured everyone was fully satisfied.

We could not say a bad word about this perfect and importantly affordable venue. The little gestures, fantastic food and the staff making everyone feel special ensured a memorable occasion for our guests and us.

We had our wedding reception in the Radisson Blu Hotel & Spa Cork in November 2012 and we could not have asked for a more superb venue. From the extremely pleasant and helpful events coordinators in the run-up, to the flawless service we received on the day, I could not speak more highly of the

The Radisson Blu provided us with the best day imaginable, from the first moment we walking into view the hotel the staff gave us their commitment and time, to promote the hotel, the surroundings and what they could offer us on the day. Not only were they professional but also very friendly and

approachable. We had viewed other hotels but were only shown the reception area and party hall but Radisson Blu really made us feel welcome and that they really wanted to be part of our day. Once we booked with them, they took care of everything, nothing was too big or small for them and they were always willing to take a phone call from us regardless of the query. This really made us feel at ease and that everything from the reception point of the day was well under control.

In the run up to the wedding, we were able to take advantage of the gym and spa treatments they had offered us in the hotel. They also let us take our time with the table plan and menu choices we wanted to make, as they have such a wide variety to choose from. We enjoyed a lovely menu tasting evening in the Radisson so we could sample as much as possible, a few weeks before the day itself.

The option to have three great reception areas available to you is a great choice to have, not many hotels can offer this. We opted for the old house reception area and they put a marque tent in the garden, the flowers we lovely and grass was well cut, they really look after the small details, which makes all the difference. The detail on the tables and the variety of finger food for the guests arriving was amazing. It was such a great experience to have our guests arriving to a old style house with great gardens and surroundings and for them to step into a state of the art, modern hotel for the eveing reception just by going through a door and down a few steps.

With the layout of the main room, they were very helpful and gave us great advice but also took onboard what we wanted ourselves. Between us they helped make the day we had wished for come true. Our guest really were in awh when they walked through the doors.

The staff on the day really made you feel welcome and that the day is all about you, we had our own staff at the top table and they really did go above and beyond for us, there was no request refused from any of our guests. The food at the dinner is still spoken about today as the nicest they have ever had at a wedding. The fact that the bar is located in a different area to the main room is also a big bonus as you don't have the busy shuffling noise that comes with ordering drinks and exchanging money, and just general banter.

Once the meal was over, the room was opened up so the bar became part of it. There was plenty room on the dance floor, without the need to remove any tables due to the great table plan they helped us with, there was no need to disrupt any guest with moving tables and chairs and it allowed the band the start nearly straight away.

The honeymoon suite was incredible, the detail again shown here was superb and there was the added bonus of a heated outdoor Jacuzzi. It was a great feeling being able to step into this after the long day, one of the most memorable times of the day.

The following day, the staff we just as helpful as they were throughout the whole process, there was no pressure on us leaving the hotel by a certain time and they made sure that we were happy with how the day went. To think that they do this on a daily basis is quite remarkable.

I have already recommended others to go to the Radisson Blu, Little Island, and I will continue to do so, it really is the only hotel to think about when choosing a wedding reception. The wedding team is so well structured and professional, they really do take huge pressure off you when it comes to planning the rest of the day.

I am already looking forward to going back there for our first year anniversary.

We could not be happier with our day at the radisson blu hotel in little island cork. It was magical from start to finish. The weather wasn't great on our day but we didn't even notice it because we took our pictures in the beautiful old house part of the hotel. On the run up to our wedding,our

wedding co ordinator could not have been more helpful and catered to our every need. The reception room was out of this world and we loved the fact that the tables didn't need to be moved for when the band started which happens in most other hotels. At the drinks reception on arrival the complimentary champagne was flowing freely and everybody commented on it.. I personally have never come across staff which were so obliging in all my life. It was like there was a member of staff assigned to myself and my wife to cater to all our needs.. My mother in law, who is a junior minister, and has seen a lot of hotels still comments on how efficient and friendly the staff were.. The food was divine but I think that's a well known fact. I'm not going to name the other hotel we got a quote off but the radisson was seven and a half thousand cheaper at the time and gave us a lot more complimentary stuff.. Including a free stay there and dinner for our 1 year anniversary. In the main room they have movable partition walls so they can cater for big and small weddings.. The atmosphere when the band started was electric and stayed that way for the whole night but to sum up I think what made it for us was the staff.. They really made us feel like royalty and they made our special day the most memorable of our lives and we cannot thank them enough for that...

We got married in August 2012 in the beautiful Radisson Blu in Cork.
From the very first moment we met with our wedding planner the whole process was like a dream. Never had we a problem contacting the hotel ( even if it was for really small insignificant details) and they kept us informed of

everything everystep of the way.
In the weeks leading up to our wedding we had a beautiful tasting in the hotel where they made it such a special night for us with OUR Wedding menus printed out for us to make us feel like it was the actual day. On the day before the wedding and the day of i think it was our wedding planner and the hotel staff that kept everything calm - no matter what we asked about or asked for their help with they were always helpful and asked us what timings we wanted for each section ( pictures-drinks reception-music-meal-etc etc ) never felt like we had to fit into their schedule they always worked around our day.
All of our guests spoke so highly of the food and the service and how nice everyone was to them , including the next morning when shoes and flowers and room keys were lost , the hotel staff were still there helping out. The hotel itself included a lot of extra decor on the day ( eg the entrance for the bride and groom has lovley trees and plants and the same with the ditchley house section of the hotel it is decorated with such class ) and the food is spectacular and not rushed in any way unlike other wedding venues ive been to. The gardens are perfect for a nice summers evening to be getting pictures or just for your guests to sit and chat in. I couldnt speak highly enough of this hotel and our day we had there. Looking forward to returning for our year anniversary :)

After looking into several other hotels in the east cork area we decided on the Radisson Blu hotel in Little Island.
We stayed in the hotel one night and ate in the bar that evening (all part of wedding research!!) and from that point we were sold! The food was fantastic and the staff and general

service level was brilliant - We couldnt find any fault with it. The following morning we met with our wedding co ordinator, Caroline who gave us a tour of the wedding venue and Ditchley house where we would have our drinks reception. From this inital meeting we knew were in safe, competent hands!!
For the next 12 months any requests we had for the hotel were never an issue and Caroline always made time to met with us and discuss any queries we had. Throughout the whole planning experience we always felt like we were getting a personal, professional, one on one service. Everything from organising rooms for guests, planning menus and wine options, drink receptions were all dealt with brilliantly. The experience the Raddison Blu have in planning weddings helped us organise everything!! The Radisson thought of everything - Little touches we hadnt even considered, it was amazing!!
We had many guests staying in the hotel the night before and everyone enjoyed the laid back atmosphere (So i was told as it was night before wedding i wasnt there!!)
On the actual wedding day truly this is where the hotel came into its own once we arrived there was absolutely nothing we had to think about or consider - The whole thing ran so smoothly, there were no issues, the hotel took care of absolutely everything. The pre dinner drinks reception with the bar and music was lovely and relaxing, we got lovely pictures in the gardens and the reception room was decorated beautifully.
We could not praise the Radisson enough for the attention and fantastic service they provided to us on our wedding day. The food was just fantastic, the attention to detail is the key to their success. For example we were having the speeches before the meal and they asked how long did we estimate the speeches may be because as they explained 5 or 10 minutes in the kitchen getting hot food out makes a hell of difference and it shows because all of our guests raved about the quality of food served to them - This is a hotel that does amazing food!!
The following night we organised the bar b q food option for about 35 of our guests, again the hotel came into its own. They had sectioned off an area for us in the bar and the food was brilliant, plenty of it and presented beautifully - Again we cannot over emphasise how good the Radisson is for food!!!
The next day when checking out they had what was left of the wedding cake all wrapped up for us, flowers all tidied up and ready for us to take away - We really felt that the service we got in the Radisson was worth every penny!!
We would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel - unfortunately this paragraph does not allow us to go into more detail into what this hotel did for us to make sure our day was memorable and amazing. We would urge anyone looking into wedding venues in the cork area to seriously consider this hotel - They do a fantastic job and you will not be disappointed!!
Thanks again to all the staff in the Radisson who helped us on our day we are grateful to you all!!!
Great! you are going to make a supplier or venue a favourite. But first you need to ...
