Everyone at The West Cork Hotel went above and beyond for us, not just on the day, but on the entire lead up to the wedding and I cannot commend them enough for all their hard work and enthusiasm. Christian Pozimski, the hotel’s head chef, is a truly gifted chef, and delivered such delicious food

to an incredible standard to every single guest at the wedding. All the staff of The West Cork Hotel are amazing. They made everyone feel looked-after, relaxed and comfortable and they work tirelessly to make sure that everything runs smoothly and timely on the day. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they all helped make our day very special and very memorable. We cannot thank them enough for all they did for us.
