We had our wedding in the Waterfront last year and we highly recommend this hotel. From our first viewing, we were struck by the generosity and warmth of the staff. The recently redecorated hotel and function room and lobby was a perfect location for our wedding reception. The team were exceptional

from our first visit right up to our Wedding Day. The staff fulfilled all our requests in an efficient and caring manner which made our day very special. The food was delicious both on our Wedding Day and also for a family function the day after in a private room which was beautifully decorated for the occasion. Our guests are still talking about their wonderful stay in the Waterfront and the memories they created that weekend. We cannot recommend the hotel enough. Lilian & Mark

We found the Waterfront Hotel excellent, not only for its scenic location but for the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. No request was too much and the day itself was run to perfection. From the first day we visited the hotel to the follow up after the wedding, we could not have asked

I could not recommend the Waterfront Dungloe enough. From the moment we walked in it felt like home. The team were so helpful and couldn't have done enough for us. All our guests were amazed by the hotel and haven't stopped talking about the amazing food. I just want to do it all over again.

We got married in August at the Waterfront Hotel. From the initial planning to the end of our night everything was 1st class. Thanks to the management and all who even kept me calm in the lead up to my speech. We have since returned to find the Waterfront as busy as ever and as amazing as before.

The Waterfront Hotel was our first choice for our Donegal wedding. Having grown up in the area I (the Bride) always wanted to have my wedding at home. Knowing that the hotel would be open and had undergone a multi-million euro redevelopment made my choice even easier, I had a dreaded fear that when

the hotel had closed its doors years ago my guests would have to travel 40 minutes from my ceremony to my reception, fortunately this was not the case, with the hotel reopening and at a 4 star standard and then to find out that Marie McGarvey was going to be the coordinator for our wedding was the icing on the cake!
Everything from the steamed table cloths, to the rooms, to the service on and in the week leading up to the wedding day was of 5 star quality for this 4 star hotel! Marie was great to deal with and took everything we wanted on board. She consulted with us on every fine detail and was great at dealing with my nitty gritty demands, I thought she would run when she saw me coming with my checklist, but instead took a copy and gave us exactly what we wanted on one of the most important days of our lives.
For us the menu and quality of the food for our guests was one of the most important elements of our day. Being avid food lovers and regular visitors to the hotel restaurant allowed us to know what we wanted on our menu and the chef had no problem fulfilling our requests. He produced high quality food for our large crowd and there was no shortage of any side dishes or the main dishes themselves. The standard of service Marie produced through her staff was second to none, everyone knew where they needed to be and when, all the food was served at once, no table was waiting for anything within a minute of our top table being served.
What made our wedding at the Waterfront more special was that my husbands ill 81 year old grandmother was determined to be at our wedding and Marie and the staff did everything to make her feel at home and comfortable. From her wheelchair accessible room, to everyone calling her by her name (she was very impressed) and Marie ensuring a dinner was kept for her on the night of the wedding till she came down from her rest in her room (during dessert). I know this would normally disrupt a kitchen and service, but it was such a small gesture from Marie that meant a lot to my husbands grandmother and us, she is telling everyone about the hotel, Marie and the lovely staff!
I would have no reservations about recommending the Waterfront Hotel as a wedding venue, your wedding will be one of the best days of your life and Marie is there to make that happen.

We had the best day, thanks to Marie and all the staff at the waterfront hotel. Everything went perfectly couldn’t fault the food and Marie made sure that everyone was well looked after. From when we booked the wedding we never had a problem, Marie was so nice to deal with and any worry she had

she sorted it right away without any hesitation. I would recommend the waterfront hotel to get married in for I really didn’t have to do a thing, it was all done for me. The staff and Marie are fantastic at the hotel I would highly recommend this hotel.

I couldn't recommend this hotel enough for a wedding.

This is a family run hotel, located on the Donegal coast just outside Dungloe town.

The setting is beautiful, overlooking the Wild Atlantic way. The food was great and reasonably priced with lots of options to choose from. The staff were so

helpful and made everything really personal for us and our guests. We had so many comments from people at the wedding saying what a great hotel it was.

They automatically book out all the rooms in the hotel (50) if you are having your wedding there and it's a great set up for families as there's quite a few family rooms and it's only a two story hotel. Also if you need a cot or to change set up from doubles to twins the staff are very accommodating.

I had the fairytale wedding I always dreamed about. We married at Dunlewey Church out by Mount Errigal and had the reception at the Waterfront Hotel. Everyone drank, ate and danced into the wee hours. We had 180 guests made up from family from the local area (my mum is from Dungloe) other parts of Donegal and London. Everyone loved it- especially the Londoners!

We had our wedding at the fantastic Waterfront hotel in May last year. From the minute we met Joseph to organize the menu and the fine details, nothing was too much.

outside on the patio. It was stunning, the attention to detail was unreal. Our meal was served promptly with no delays, the food was outstanding, chefs Benji and John & their team really outdid themselves. The comfort of the bedrooms was amazing, bridal suite was top class.

We had our wedding in the waterfront hotel on 24 Aug 2018.

We visit the hotel often, as soon as the waterfront opened we knew we would have our wedding there.

Marie treated us so well. She provided advise and help along the way and ensured the day ran exactly as we had planned. The staff at

the waterfront were extremely helpful and professional.

The food was amazing (many of our guests said it was the best wedding dinner they ever had).

The staff had the hotel decorated beautifully and had some lovely surprise touches along the way (champagne and chocolates in our room and again at breakfast).

We spent the weekend at the hotel with many of our guests, the rooms were beautiful as was breakfast and lunch.

We had the most wonderful weekend and cannot thank Marie and the staff enough!

We had our wedding on the 10th March 2018 in The Waterfront Hotel Dungloe. From our first meeting we couldn't have asked anymore. We were made feel like our day was the most important event in the hotel. We knew that everything would be perfect due to the attention and detail that was it into every

part of the day. We knew the day would be perfect and so it was. We couldn't have asked for anything more. We had guests from all over the country and they are still talking about the hotel - the helpfulness of thestaff, the quality of the food, the overall ambiance and decor of the hotel. Everything was perfect. We can't recommend the hotel enough for anyone's special day.

From beginning to end we had a fantastic day at the waterfront. Marie the events planner took over the running of the wedding and it was so seamless. We had our ceremony at the venue and was beautifully staged and set up for. The keg and prosecco reception was a great idea. Once we got into our meal

We were the first wedding to ever be booked into The Waterfront Hotel, and from the moment we stepped foot into the premises (lawnmower and all) we knew that it was the best place to celebrate our special day. No job was too big or too small for the staff. They looked after us very well and all our

requests and needs were catered for. The food and service was absolutely phenomenal and Kevin should be proud of that and that his staff work to an extremely high standard. We would both highly recommend The Waterfront to anybody looking for a high class day. We would consider renewing our vows down the line too. Keep up the good work you all should be proud of yourselves.
