We had an absolutely amazing wedding day and weekend. From beginning to end we could not fault one thing. The room looked amazing thanks to Danka and the staff. John was just a dream to work with. Andrew and Paul from the Thursday evening until I came back to collect my car was just absolutely

amazing and Niall, everyone kept talking about how friendly and helpful and kind he was. I did not catch the bar man from the Saturday's name but he was so lovely and the lads had a laugh with him.

All of our guests have made comments on the hotel and the staff and said they would recommend it to anyone as they just had such an amazing time.. The Germans loved Paul by the way.

Both Mark and I have agreed that the Royal Marine is not just where we had our wedding is but is like another home and that is down to yourself and the staff. We hope to come down over the next few weeks and take the staff up on their word to visit.

We would like to make senior management at the hotel, or hotel group, aware of how happy we were with our wedding at The Royal Marine on Saturday.

The food was amazing, all of the staff were incredible, and everyone had a great time.

We’d like to particularly highlight Ashleigh and John, who

were great in the build up to the wedding and looked after us so well on the day. Thomas and the duty manager (I forget his name, sorry) were all so attentive and provided a great experience for all of the guests. As did all of the staff.

We had our wedding at the Royal Marine Hotel in November 2018. We were very happy with the service and welcome given to us by all the team. The hotel was beautiful, the food was delicious and the staff were friendly and very helpful. Some special mentions to Aidan Ryan the general manager, who

always had a welcome for us when visiting the hotel as we were preparing for our big day. Ashleigh McDonald was our event coordinator; she was professional and helpful to us as we prepared for our wedding. She was on hand whenever we needed her and it was a pleasure to work with her. John O Grady, C & B manager was with us throughout the evening of our wedding, checking in with us regularly to make sure we had everything we needed. Hayley and Leila in reservations were excellent to work with also. We had a lot of guests travelling from abroad with a variety of needs and requirements, all of which were accommodated for by the reservations team. Any issues we had with had with bookings or rooms were quickly dealt with by Hayley and Leila and all of our guests were very happy with their stay. We would highly recommend the hotel as a wedding venue and wish we could do it all again!

Our wedding day on the 29th June could not have been better.

The weather on the day was probably the best seen in Ireland for many years, so that's a good start.

The wedding service was held in the Maritime Museum and within a short walk to the Royal Marine.

After checking in with John and

Alma on the day, all the plans that had been promised were in place.

Being nearly 29/30c on the day it was great to have the benches outside the hotel where the guests could enjoy a drink outdoors and enjoy the sunshine.

The musician's stage was set up as planned and we were able to say a few words before the meal.

The meal on the day was exactly as we had requested and the service and quality of the food was of the highest quality. All wine glasses were topped up regularly and guests received "second helpings".

We enjoyed a late night and the bar staff were very helpful.

The Bridal Suite was situated at the front of the house with fantastic sea views, and we enjoyed the comfort of the extra space and luxury.

The breakfast next morning was really good. Both the quality and service. Many guests had commented on this.

Overall, we had a fantastic day and would have no problem recommending " The Royal Marine " as a venue to any future marriage prospects.

Many thanks to John for his attention on the day, and Alma for her attention to the finer points which made the day possible.

Myself and my husband Hugh cannot thank the staff of the Royal Marine enough. From day one we have been looked after with such care. Aidan the manager is an absolute gentleman and his attention and hospitality to us at every meeting was top class. Our wedding guests spoke very highly of Aidan and

his care of them throughout our day. Alma our wedding coordinator was a pleasure to work with and made everything very easy for us. Our day went exactly as we wanted it to and that’s thanks to Aidan, Alma and there team.
The Royal Marine is a beautiful setting for your day and is topped off with a wonderful team of people making your day everything you dreamed it would be.
Thank you Aidan, Alma and your team.

From the very first time we visited the Royal Marine Hotel, to the day after our wedding 18 months later, our experience has been nothing short of exceptional and we couldn't recommend the team highly enough! Our initial meeting was with Aidan who went above and beyond to make us feel special. What

Read More

really struck us was that, on that day, he met another couple who had been married in the hotel a few months previously and knew them by name. It showed how well he and his team care about their couples - we weren't just a number!

We were looked after by Elaine during the planning stages and on the day, and no request was too troublesome for her and her team. The day itself was just magical, and we have to give a special shout out to Peter who ensured the reception ran smoothly and catered to our every need. Our family and friends raved about the hotel, the food and the service we received both on our wedding day and the next day at our coffee and cake event. One relative said the food was the best she had ever tasted at a wedding, and another guest who is an executive head chef by profession was very impressed by the menu and the quality of the food.

On the day after the wedding, we stayed on an extra night and had dinner in the restaurant, and were so impressed by the attention given to us that evening.

Overall, we would highly recommend the Royal Marine Hotel to any couples planning their wedding. You won't be disappointed!

My husband and I had a great day from start to finish. Our guest loved every minute from the reception drinks to the residents bar. We were off to a rocky start when our original wedding coordinator left with a couple of days notice but Kate was great she listened to our wants and needs

We can not recommend the Royal Marine highly enough. Our coordinator Alma went above and beyond to give us the perfect day with absolutely no ask too big or too small. She worked tirelessly to understand our needs and was an amazing communicator which was crucial as we were planning our wedding from

She thought of absolutely everything so we didn’t have to and we knew from our first meeting that we were in the hands of a professional.

On the day, everything went absolutely to plan and the food, decor and venue were all perfect thanks to Alma. We never thought it would be possible to enjoy our day so much but knowing things were in such good hands we could relax and enjoy every minute!

The Royal Marine was a fantastic venue for our wedding, located on the edge of Dublin meant it was easy for all of our guests to get to especially those traveling long distance. As a venue The Royal Marine could accommodate our large number of guest as well as provide all of the facilities to ensure

they enjoyed their stay. We worked with Alma Kenny to plan the day and she was very efficient covering all areas and making us feel very comfortable with our arrangements for the day.

We made a weekend of it and the feedback from everyone was excellent! There was plenty of food and it was all of a high standard. The staff on the day were very good and the Banqueting Manager was always there for anything we needed.

Wish we could do it all again and thank you to everyone at the Royal Marine for making our day very special.

I cannot say enough great things about the Royal Marine Hotel! From the planning(less than 3 months out from our wedding date, our previous venue fell apart) to the reception, Alma was amazing! She was one of the few planners who asked us questions and gave us direction. The venue was magnificent

and food was amazing. Our service was fantastic and our guests had a ball! My only recommendation is to make sure you have the details for your bar services (especially those coming from the states) as cocktails are served & priced differently.

Hi Alma,

Have to say we had the most amazing day on Saturday. From dealing with yourself and Peter on the day everything went better than we could ever have planned.
From the minute we arrived until we left we were

Couldn't recommend this hotel enough. Our wedding co-ordinator Alma was amazing, answered all our questions straight away and couldn't do enough for us nothing was too much to ask. On the day of the wedding the room was beautifully set up and the view over the harbour was amazing. All the staff were

Hi Alma,

How are you?

I just wanted to drop you a line about our fab day – to say thank you so much for our wonderful wedding celebration at the Royal Marine Hotel. You and the team couldn’t have worked harder for us or been more attentive and professional than you all were.

were an absolute pleasure to work with from day one, Alma, and from the moment we walked into the hotel (in a slight state of panic last year!), met Eusebio, and he graciously showed us around, we knew that the Royal Marine was the place for us.

Our guests are full of praise for the Royal Marine – everything from the Arrivals Reception, staff and the meal to their rooms and breakfast the following morning has received praise. And I would very much like to thank the waiter who looked after my young nephews at the top table – he made them feel very special!

On a personal note, the beautiful Dublin Crystal glasses left in our room and the note along with them was a lovely touch and such a surprise! We will certainly treasure those glasses.

Robbie and I couldn’t have had a happier wedding day and the Royal Marine was everything we had hoped for: elegant with efficient and discreet staff, which filled us with confidence and made our entire reception so relaxed and joyful.

All the best for the future, Alma, and we will certainly be back to the Royal Marine soon!

Kind regards,

Robbie & Shirley.

helpful and easy to deal with, really listened to your queries and took the time to understand what we wanted and was always really prompt getting back to you. I felt very confident from the start that we were in good hands and could relax. The day itself was just amazing, and even better than I could imagine, and that is in large part because of the wonderful staff of the Royal Marine who looked after us and all our guests so well. We even found a beautiful surprise gift of engraved flutes from the hotel in our bridal suite which was such a lovely touch and very indicative of the high quality of service we received at the Royal Marine. Thank you!

Dear Alma,

on behalf of Lucia and I, we want to drop you an email to express our appreciation of the work done by the staff of the Royal Marine Hotel on our wedding day, Saturday 3rd September 2016.

It is normal and expected for guests to thank the Bride and Groom for a lovely day and to say

Read More

the meal was nice. However our guests have gone way beyond that in their praise for the Royal Marine Hotel and the staff there. More than one guest said the word to describe the day was "class". Other guests said "we had too much to eat". That is a good complaint you will agree!

Both Lucy and I had the steak, as did a lot of the guests. Please express our compliments and appreciation to Chef for providing such succulent and tender beef. It was "melt in your mouth", it was so tender. The presentation of the steak by the staff at our table was impressive. They made a nice impression by lifting off the plate covers at the same time.

The Duty Manager was always there to guide me back to my table for the next course after I went "wandering" between courses to speak with our guests. He did a great job and we appreciate that.

The service staff were always smiling and very pleasant. The food was delivered on time and thankfully there was no long wait between courses. The staff did a great job and please express our appreciation to them. They see weddings every week, but for us it was once in a lifetime and so important to us that the staff appreciated that.

When we got to our wedding suite in the early hours, we were surprised to receive a beautiful gift from the hotel of a pair of engraved champagne flutes. That was really a nice surprise. Thank you.

Finally and not least, we want to thank you Alma for your patience and kindness to us. You were always there either in person or at the end of the line when we needed you. Your advice to us was inestimable. You guided us on times, on food, and when we might have gone overboard on preparations. You were our Angel

Hi Maeve,

I hope all is well with you and you had a lovely weekend.

I honestly don't think Trevor and I can thank you all enough for everything you have done for us over the past few months. We had the most incredible day and night of our lives and that is largely down to you and all that you

have done and made possible. From the day we first met with you everything has been so easy for us. All elements of the planning process were handled by you and any questions or queries we had were never too much trouble and you were always so quick to get back to us. Thank you for all the suggestions and help you gave us along the way. You were just amazing to us.

On the day itself everything ran so perfectly, from the drinks and canapés reception to the dinner and on to the entertainment. Our guests are still raving about the food and drink and the room was stunning. I can't think of a more perfect setting for our day.

Please send on our thanks to all the staff that helped out on the day. The service was amazing and all the staff were brilliant.

Please also send on a huge thank you to Paul. He was amazing and kept everything running so smoothly.

We absolutely love the Dublin Crystal Champagne Flutes with our wedding date on it. It is so lovely to have something from you all to commemorate our day.

Please let us know if there is anything more you need from us.

Thank you so much again.

The Royal Marine Hotel surpassed all our expectations for our August 2015 wedding. Having looked at a number of venues our immediate reaction when we walked into the Royal Marine was that it was full of charm and was exactly what we wanted to share with our guests. Maeve, our wedding coordinator,

Read More

was fantastic to deal with in the months leading up to our wedding – she was so organised and reliable and every meeting with her was a pleasure. It was reassuring to feel that all our hotel preparations were in safe hands, particularly as our wedding day got closer.

On our wedding day itself everything went even better than we expected. Paul ensured that we had no stress as he coordinated everything from getting our guests to the ceremony room to making sure the meal and speeches went smoothly.

We and our guests had an amazing weekend – the food was top class and the service from all the staff was special. The convenience of the aircoach was fantastic for our guests who travelled from overseas. Many of our guests stayed overnight at the hotel and commented that they felt they had been on a relaxing holiday as a result of the charm of the hotel, the service from the staff, and the lovely walks on Dun Laoghaire pier and to the People’s Park on the day after the wedding. The Royal Marine offers a location and service that is difficult to match. We are certain we made the perfect choice by having our wedding ceremony and reception at the Royal Marine Hotel, Dun Laoghaire.

From the moment we inquired about booking our wedding at this venue, the experience was first class to say the least. Maeve, the wedding coordinator was pleasant and easy to deal with and put us at ease
from the start that everything we wanted could be done. Aidan, the general manager was very present throughout and made sure that everything was done to an extremely high standard. Paul, the banqueting manager made the day run seamlessly in an non obtrusive way and was fantastic to have on hand for the day. We are so happy we went with the Royal Marine, and the photos and memories we have from our day we will always treasure.
Thanks so much again for helping to make our day so special.
If you are thinking of this as a wedding venue go to a wedding fair there to see it in its full splendour.

Firstly and most importantly, The Royal Marine is a simply superb wedding venue, I got married there in June 2015, I had the best day of my entire life and would have no problem recommending the Royal Marine to anyone, in fact I would highly recommend it. The venue itself is stunning, the location

Read More

is perfect but where the Royal Marine excel is in their attention to detail, in their understanding of the importance of the day and in their desire to make it so memorable. This started on the very first meeting with Maeve our wedding organiser, I can’t speak highly enough about her, nothing was a problem at any point and she made the organising of the event extremely enjoyable. The day itself ran like clockwork, the treatment we got as being the bride and groom was simply incredible, it is hard to describe the level of attention that we received from all staff on the day from start to finish but it was almost beyond belief. The room itself with adjoining area for pre-dinner drinks was perfect, the food was excellent and the room itself was amazing in terms of how it is laid out to ensure there is no disconnect between tables, dance floor and bar, that really helped with ensuring a really good party when the band and DJ started. A simply superb wedding venue

We had our wedding reception here on the 30th May 2015 and from start to finish the Royal Marine Hotel provided one of the best, smoothest and most professional services I've had the pleasure of experiencing.

Our first meeting was a two hour tour of the hotel with every question answered and no

Read More

detail too small to be noted. From then on every email was replied to within one working day (usually in less than two hours). A drop in visit with close friends on a Sunday afternoon resulted in a staff member taking an hour to show us and them around. All our special requests from menu tweaks, ice cream vans to sweet heart tables were met without difficulty. In the lead up to the day Maeve ensured every detail was taken care of and on the day itself Paul and his team made sure everything ran like clockwork. The bridal suite was beautiful. The food was delicious.

Our guests were wonderfully taken care of too. Those travelling from abroad could use the direct bus route to the airport. There's easy access to the city and lots to do locally for those who stayed for a few days extra.

Our guests and ourselves had an absolutely fantastic day in no small part due to the hotel staff and their team work.

We got married in the Royal Marine Hotel last month and it was an amazing venue for our wedding.

From the first wedding fair we attended we could picture our big day there. The hotel is so impressive from the outside, gorgeous on the inside with wonderful views. We had a lot of guests who were in

Read More

Ireland for the first time so it was important to us to have somewhere that showed the best of Ireland and this hotel definitely did that. All our guests have commented on what an amazing venue it was.

Maeve Breslin, the wedding planner was so helpful in the run up to the wedding. She answered all our questions quickly and gave us some great advice and tips. On the day, the general manager Paul was amazing and made sure that everything went to plan. All the staff were so friendly and eager to help.

Our ceremony took place in the hotel and the room was set up beautifully. We got some gorgeous photographs in front of the hotel and also down at the pier. The room was set up wonderfully for the meal and the food was delicious. Again lots of our guests commented on how great the food was, from the canapés right through to the evening food and how professional the service was.

I had been dreaming about my wedding day for years and with the help of the Royal Marine Hotel, I really did feel like a princess for the day. On the day everything went without a hitch and was exactly as we wanted it as a result of the detailed planning by Maeve and the experience/professionalism of all the staff. We are so glad we chose the Royal Marine Hotel , it was the perfect venue for our wedding day and we highly recommend it.

planning it from aboard. Micelle and Gina were very quick to respond to our emails and helped us plan our special day down to the final detail. The banquet hall was intimate, elegant and absolutely amazing! My husband and I were in awe when we saw it. The food was also delicious and amazing! ; our guests complimented the food and fantastic service. The head chef was very accommodating as some of our guests had special dietary requirements…nothing was a problem. Paul did a fantastic job making sure the day ran smoothly for us, he was very attentive to every detail. We knew our wedding day was in great hands immediately after meeting Paul.
The location of the hotel was perfect for our family and friends who flew to Ireland for our wedding. Our guests complimented the bedrooms and facilities and said they would go back to stay on their next visit to Ireland.
Paul, Michelle, Gina and every member of staff were great. They were very professional, helpful, polite and attentive. They made it easy for us to have a great (stress free) time at our wedding….and for that we thank you! We are delighted we choose the Royal Marine Hotel as our wedding venue and without hesitation we would highly recommend it if you are looking for that special romantic, wedding location.

facilities for 3 months and have continued our membership since. We couldn't have asked for anything more on the day of the wedding itself. Everything ran so smoothly, and exactly according to plan. Furthermore, there was a real personal touch as all the members of the wedding team were there. All of our guests commented on how well they were treated and many have planned to return to the hotel for holidays. I would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel.

We are both thrilled with the service that we received from the Royal Marine for our wedding on the 26th April 2014. From the moment we booked right up until the wedding day itself. Every query we had was answered straight away and Gina responded so quickly to all my emails.

Paul the manager

who took care of us on the day itself was great, he made sure everything was running smoothly. The food was amazing, really top notch and everyone was complimenting the food and the size portions.

The room was great, set out so nicely and so spacious and airy with a lovely view.

We are both so happy we picked the Royal Marine as our wedding venue and we would recommend it 100%.

Everything on the day was perfect and flawless.

We are both looking forward to staying there for our 1 year anniversary this April.

To Gina, Paul and all the staff thank you so much for making our wedding day so special.

Also thank you for our wonderful wedding gift, it was so thoughtful and such a lovely surprise!!

Our guests were still talking about our wedding for months afterwards.

We got married in September 2013 and the whole processes leading up to the day was managed fantastically but on the day the Royal Marine far exceeded our expectations. Paul looked after us throughout the day and he was amazing. He knew what he was doing, knew timings of the day and enabled us to

relax and enjoy ourselves.
The day before we spoke to the lady who dressed the small bar we were using for pre drinks and she got it spot on with regards to the bits and pieces we wanted. Equally the main room looked fantastic, the food was top class and a lot of people commented on it.
During our weekend we got to meet the guy that manages the breakfast (sorry, I can't remember his name) and he was a star - everyone we met from the hotel throughout the weekend was very friendly and helpful not just to us but also to our family and friends - we made a point of letting the duty manager know this so hopefuly our coments were passed along.
The next day we arranged a buffet dinner for everyone and again the Royal Marine exceeded expectations - the food quality was amazing and what we wanted was interpretted really well. A few of the staff we met the night before even came up to say hello during the dinner and check everything was ok which we thought was really nice.
The whole weekend was briliantly handled, was excellent value for money and would highly recommend the venue.
Even when we went back a year later for our free night and dinner Paul made a point of coming over and saying hello and the guy we met who manages the breakfast who was working that night made a point of saying hello and asking us how everything was going.
We will certainly be going back next September and will probably make it a regular thing!! Can't praise it enough

We had our wedding at the Royal Marine on October 31st 2014.
We were looking for a special venue in Dublin as many of our guests were travelling from Mayo and we wanted to ensure a great experience that was worth the trip. Maeve, Aidan, Paul and all of the team were simply brilliant, both in the

run up to the day, and on the day itself. Maeve is so organised which is extremely reassuring. Their professionalism and attention to detail was second to none and ensured a wonderful experience for us and our guests. Testament to the quality of the venue was the amount of comments from our guests on the quality of the food, the service and the amenities in the hotel. Was it worth the trip!? Very much so, and even from the northside of Dublin which is where I am from!! Everything was first class from start to finish. Thank you so much!!!

We got married 31/8/2013 we had 246 seated guests for our wedding meal.

We had a perfect wedding in the Royal Marine hotel in Dun Laoghaire. The location of the hotel in the heart of Dun Laoghaire was great and ideal for us as we had guests travelling from overseas and around the country.

The staff in the hotel were so helpful on the Wedding day to make sure that everything was prepared for us and everything went smoothly from start to finish.
All in all, we would highly recommend the Royal Marine.

For anyone considering where to have their wedding reception, I can't recommend the Royal Marine Hotel enough. The hotel is situated in a beautiful location, is clean and comfortable. But what sets the Royal Marine apart is their attention to detail, and the way they made our guests feel so

The staff are amazing, incredibly customer focused and it was clear they had plenty of experience with wedding receptions. The day was planned with precision by Gina and everything went like clockwork. The banqueting manager, Paul, help calm any nerves we had and the whole team worked professionally throughout the day. Anything we needed, we only had to ask and it was done. However, we rarely had to ask as nearly everything was anticipated by the Royal Marine team. The room was laid out beautifully and all of our guests were amazed at the fantastic food and wine which was served to them. Our room was beautiful and any of our guest who stayed at the hotel were impressed with their rooms and the facilities.

I would certainly recommend the Royal Marine Hotel as an ideal location for a wedding reception. They arranged the most amazing day for us and we will never forget it!!

Dear Gina, Paul, Michelle & Maeve,
We just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and the Royal Marine team for looking after our special day. Everything on the day was perfect and we couldn't have asked for a better venue to celebrate our special day. Nothing was too much

Read More

trouble for you and the team who looked after all our details during and towards the build up of the day. From start to finish you all made it very easy, enjoyable and smooth to plan.
A massive thank you to the chefs for the amazing food also. I have to say the nicest food I have tasted at any wedding I’ve been to before. The presentation, quality and service was second to none. Also thanks to Paul, Matti, Nigel and the rest of the team who ensured the day ran smoothly.
You all went above and beyond, even looking after the early check ins for the family travelling over from the UK and ensuring that they had a room ready on arrival, it was very much appreciated.
So many family members and friends complimented the hotel and the way everything was dealt with over our wedding weekend and commented on how friendly and polite every staff member was who they crossed paths with.
It really helped and made me at ease that I didn't have to worry about our reception as I knew it was all taken care of and all in good hands and it made the planning even more enjoyable that our minds were at ease so thank you all.
I have no problem recommending the Royal Marine Hotel for any function, family event or even just a weekend away. My only negative is that we can't do the whole day all over again. Other than this I cannot fault this hotel at all.
Once again, thank you so much
Helen & David Jones.

Michelle was fantastic from beginning to end organising every little detail, constantly there for an little or big queries. She went above and beyond in every way and for this we will be forever grateful.
On the day Paul ran everything to plan. Again nothing too big or too small. He was amazing with everyone especially our daughter. He was there every step of our day and helped make it magical. He also went above and beyond in every aspect.
Our day went off without a hitch! It was absolutely fantastic and everyone is still talking about how amazing it was, we are in no doubt that the staff had a major part in making our day so perfect.
Every member of staff we came across from our menu tasting right up to the day was absolutely lovely. If you are considering this hotel for your wedding I would recommend seeing it in person it's more magical than the pictures, and if your not considering it, Why not???

marine's attention to detail was spectacular and I don't think anyone expected such a perfect day and wouldn't have from any hotel. You have definitely out done all your competition.
I would like to say thank you to you and Matti for overlooking everything on the day and a big thank to Paul who coordinated everything on the day. Also a big thank you to Rocko who works in the bar. He was very patient with us the night before and trust me it wasn't a pretty scene :) a bunch of excited slightly drunk people who are quite high maintenance :)
Now a Massive Massive thank you to Michelle. I believe Michelle made it all come true.
Firstly many things were tweaked last minute in fact I found the last two weeks the hardest. Of course Michelle with her professionalism and patience made it seem like a walk in the park.
Michelle was always there when I needed her. I can't remember one mail that lasted more than 15 mins before I got a response.
Michelle was always cheerful and pleasant and not once made me feel I was being pain. Which being a project manager I know I was and I don't envy her for having to deal with me. :) Her attention to detail was absolutely superb every single detail went as planned and even better on the day.
I could write pages about her great she was, she was absolutely fantastic.
Everyone in the hotel was great every single waiter and everyone in housekeeping too. All my family were blown away.
The food was excellent too and even better than the tasting and also the food in the bar the day before ad after was amazing.
Can't wait to come back.
Thanks again to the best hotel I've ever been to.
P.S. Mary wrote this mail with me so it's how we both feel :)

All my family & friends were commenting about the food (it was to die for) everyone agreed is was fab!!!

I really appreciate everything that was done for us!!!!

I can’t wait to see you all again on our anniversary stay, such a nice present to get!!!

Thanks again
