We got married at Sneem Hotel on 31st August 2019 and what an incredible weekend it was!

We planned our wedding from Australia and had originally booked another venue close to home (Limerick) but 5 months before our wedding we were advised that the venue had closed down. We started the search

again and we were lucky enough to find Sneem Hotel!

I got to see the venue in real life 5 days before the wedding and I was blown away by how beautiful it was. I got to spend time with Louise the worlds BEST wedding coordinator and go through a check list for the day (she actually stayed back after her shift to meet me as I couldn’t get there any earlier).

From the initial point of contact with Louise we felt at ease. I wouldn’t say I was the most organised bride, maybe a bit too relaxed at times and I found myself trying to get things done at the last minute but any questions I had Louise was there to help. She was great in the lead up to the wedding and I swear on the day itself she could read my mind! She was always 10 steps ahead and nothing was too much trouble. She was so fast and efficient but in a very calm and relaxed manner. She had met most of the bridal party, family members ect before I had even had a chance to introduce them!

All of the staff were amazing, they couldn’t do enough for you. So many of our guests complimented the staff on their service not only for the wedding day but for the whole weekend.

We had family and friends travel from Australia, Canada and all around Ireland so we made a weekend of it and had our day after at the hotel aswell. It was so nice to have everyone in one spot and get to spend quality time together.

From the minute we checked in on Friday to check out on Monday we were totally spoiled. The extra touches were just amazing, they thought of everything.

We were lucky enough to get the weather for an outdoor ceremony/drinks reception and the setting was absolutely breathtaking. I believe everything happens for a reason and I’m so grateful we got to spend our special day at this amazing venue!

Thank you Louise and all of the staff at Sneem Hotel for the best weekend!

(Ps. Brides - rent the boathouse for you. for the night before with the bridesmaids and morning preparations, you won’t be disappointed!).

Hi Louise,

Hope you're keeping well.

I just wanted to pop an email over to you and your team to thank you for all the hard work you put into making our wedding day so special. To say you blew us away would be an understatement.
When we arrived at the reception and seen all the work you had

done and all the extra bits where you went above and beyond for us, it really did mean so much..

You gave us exactly what we hoped for and much much more.
We appreciate all of the effort put in, especially with the wedding happening at Christmas time, we know that can't have been easy for you.
You were a pleasure to deal with and made everything so simple and easy for us.
The service, the staff, the food, everything.. it was all absolutely perfect!

Our guests that travelled from near and far had such brilliant things to say about you Louise and all your team. All the staff were so friendly and welcoming, it was felt from everyone during our two/three days at Sneem Hotel.

We would highly recommend Sneem Hotel as a top wedding venue.

Thank you so so much again!

My husband and I couldn't have been more impressed by the amazing service that the Sneem Hotel provided for our wedding last year. There was absolutely nothing that Louise hadn't thought of, and she went above and beyond in her dedication to the job. My husband was ill in hospital on the run up to

the big day, but again, Louise came to the rescue, and despite the fact that we were unable to pop in and finalise details in the final days, she had looked after every single detail, so we didn't need to worry. The food was exceptional, and our only difficulty was choosing what to put on the menu, as each of the options we tasted were divine! The service, staff and location were everything we hoped for and more, and we would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to any other couples looking for their perfect reception venue!

From our initial correspondence with the hotel, we were really impressed. Louise was highly professional, supportive and friendly and most of all a fantastic listener. She was always willing to take on board all of our ideas and make them happen!
Our visit to the hotel in November confirmed our

admiration for the place, the hotel and the staff. Everyone was all so welcoming. Louise was always only an email or phone call away. She was a fountain of knowledge & resources, & always recommending local people & services( Marie-makeup artist, Michelle-hairdresser, Fiona-flowers, Lisa-photographer; 5⭐️’s- all fantastic ladies whom I would highly recommend for any special occasion). Lisa, our photographer, also a member of staff at the hotel, was always at the end of an email. She is fun, professional and passionate about her photographic, which is evident in her work!
Unfortunately, Louise was unavailable for our wedding day but her colleague Nicola filled in for her perfectly.
Ladies, we cannot thank you enough. No personal touches went unnoticed by us, our guests or our children (our beautifully decorated bridal suite, personalised memory box, congratulations from an introduction to the hotel owner, restaurant decorations for our meal, waitresses finding toys for children (to name but a few).
From the bottom of our hearts,
Go raibh míle buíochais,
Áine & Rob xx”
See you for our 1st Anniversary
